Left Wing Attack Machine Targets Glenn Beck

From Mediaite the Socialist Joker poster that gained viral status a few weeks ago has been adapted to target Glenn Beck. Would that this were the worst of the attack machine, Beck himself might find the effort a sad but small cost to bring attention to those who surround the President. The same ferocity we witnessed when Sarah Palin threatened the election of Barack Obama is evidently being employed in full force against Beck. The latest is a series of anonymously posted accusations that Beck murdered and raped a young girl in 1990.

Mediaite suggests this is a well coordinated attack unlikely to disappear anytime soon. In an update they report:
Update #3, 4:30pm: “Glenn Beck murder” and “Glenn Beck rapist” are now top suggestions when you do a Google search for Glenn Beck.
There are suspicious polls placed on sites like Twiigs and Reddit. The poll response is a remarkable 13,000 in just a few days. A website was created with the domain name "" Though there is a small disclaimer at the bottom indicating the site is a parody, there is a consistent challenge that Beck prove he didn't commit such crimes:
“Notice: This site is parody/satire. We assume Glenn Beck did not rape and murder a young girl in 1990, although we haven’t yet seen proof that he didn’t. But we think Glenn Beck definitely uses tactics like this to spread lies and misinformation.”
As Mediaite suggests it comes across less like parody and more like a coordinated malicious attack, possibly to detract from the efficacy of Beck's questioning of the Czars like Van Jones. The White House is supposed to be responding to the latest report on Jones shortly, by the way. Jake Tapper tweeted the announcement just over an hour ago. It seems Beck's attention to Jones is hitting the Administration quite hard. As with Palin, we can expect to see Beck on the receiving end of relentless efforts to attack and destroy by any and all means.

UPDATE: Allah at Hot Air has a full report on the latest non-denial denial from Van Jones. He claims not to have agreed with the petition. Jake Tapper via Twitter states that a source has informed him Jones did not carefully review the petition. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.


  1. This is despicable!  

  2. You know me, I am all for fair use and parody but this is just evil.
