I was compelled to post because I feel it’s about time we at The Contrarian addressed this issue. True, some of us have heard the story before. In fact, it’s about two weeks old — approximately 12.7 internet years. However, those of us with South African ISPs are still catching on. Regardless, I cannot stress enough that we mustn’t become desensitized to this issue. All hyperbole aside, I feel this is an matter that gets to the heart of the current American political moment unlike any other.
Let’s examine the facts.
FACT: no one is actually accusing Glenn Beck of raping and murdering a young girl in 1990. I certainly am not doing so myself. Which is to say, I do believe such a thing could hypothetically be true, and I’ve seen no evidence to the contrary. In fact, the self-declared official site for the controversy, didglennbeckrapeandmurderayounggirlin1990.com (or, alternately glennbeckrapedandmurderedayounggirlin1990.com) actually calls itself a “parody.” However, that doesn’t change the…
FACT: Glenn Beck still refuses to address the allegations that he raped and murdered a young girl in 1990, spurious or not. In fact, lawyers on his behalf have done all they can to shut down the website that brought the controversy to light.
(Something which in my opinion is a) FACT: Glenn Beck could quickly and easily put this whole story to rest by simply coming out and denying that he raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. And, considering that he’s becoming an increasingly powerful political figure, wouldn’t it be only responsible to answer these allegations?
In a completely unrelated but entirely relevant aside, let me share with you two pieces of video. Here is alleged rapist/murderer Glenn Beck, knee-deep in false respect, interviewing America’s first Muslim congressman:
