A direct link: Glenn Beck and The Tides Foundation

Watertiger reminds me of this from July of last year:

From the story in The Christian Science Monitor:  Glenn Beck’s dozens of attacks on  The Tides Foundation, are being linked to the attempt by a “heavily-armed man [Byron Williams] to assassinate employees at the San Francisco-based [Tides] Foundation, which funds environmental, human rights, and other progressive projects. The attack in July was thwarted in a shoot-out with police in which two officers were wounded.”

The Tides Foundation, in case you don’t remember, is the outfit no one ever heard of till Glenn Beck targeted them on his TV show devoting himself to attacking them hour after hour, day after day.

Said the gunman: “I would have never started watching Fox News if it wasn’t for the fact that Beck was on there. And it was the things that he did, it was the things he exposed that blew my mind.”

After the shootings, “Rep. Peter King (R-NY), senior Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, said in an e-mail to Media Matters: “It is important that everyone in public life, whether on the right or on the left, realize that words have consequences.”

I think that’s what the Pima County Sheriff said. And so, oddly, did Byron Williams.

  1. That’s right, and they’re complicit in the crimes of their followers, just like Charles Manson was with his followers.


  2. I agree that Beck is an idiot, but I disagree with the picture because Beck does not like conservatives either, when he was on CNN, he was saying nastier things about Bush
