Conspiracy Theories

Glenn Beck: Obama Was Behind ‘Innocence of Muslims’ Video to Spread Misinformation About Benghazi (VIDEO)

On his show last night, Glenn Beck borrowed from a theory put forth by Fox News contributor Charles Krauthhammer, that says the only phone call President Obama “allegedly” made the night of the Benghazi attacks  was to the State Department — to coordinate a message that said the attack was the result of an anti-Islam video.

Beck then speculated whether or not Obama has a personal Blackberry that he uses to communicate off the record, leading Beck to ask, “is [Obama] the origin of the video? Who was the origin of that video? Can we get the records of the Blackberry?”

It’s interesting to note that there is no corroborative evidence to support any of Beck’s speculations about who Obama did or didn’t call that day. Ironically, Beck’s latest rant comes a week after he lamented the mainstream media for labeling him a conspiracy theorist.

    It is frightening to think that there are so many weak minded people out there who actually listen to what this loon says. Even more frightening is the number who are convinced that everything he says has a factual basis. I love his careful wording, “according to sources” that’s it no more. Not according to White House sources, not according to State Department sources, just according to sources. How STUPID does one have to be to hear that and not realize that the sources are the little voices inside his head?

    This man is irritating to listen to, why doesn’t someone commit him to a mental hospital already?

    Glenn Beck is a moron. What about all the time Bush sat on his as in a first grade classroom when thousands of Ameiricans were dying…..ON AMERICAN SOIL…..after the first plane hit the WTC. Let’s talk about that shall we? Certainly this is a bigger story than the one you are trying to fan the cinders on.

    He hasn’t shown himself a physical danger to himself and/or others. Also, he is apparently capable of taking care of himself without assistance.

    Besides that, mental hospitals are giving way to community-based services. So he’d still be on the loose.

    Why anyone in their right mind would ever give this right wing lunatic Glenn Beck the time of day is beyond me!

    Because Glenn Beck doesn’t have a mental illness. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s become fabulously wealthy spreading this unsubstantiated garbage–deception and collateral damage be damned.
