Gunman Cites Glenn Beck as Inspiration for Plot Against ACLU & Tides
In a jailhouse confession, a California man has admitted it was Fox News host Glenn Beck who inspired him to plot the assassination of employees of the ACLU and the Tides Foundation. Byron Williams made national headlines in July, when he was arrested after he opened fire on California Highway Patrol officers. The shootout occurred as Williams was driving to the headquarters of the Tides Foundation headquarters in San Francisco. Earlier today, the media watchdog group MediaMatters released audio from a jailhouse interview in which Williams talks about Beck’s influence.
Byron Williams: "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. I said, 'Well, nobody does this.' ...Beck will never say anything about a conspiracy, will never advocate violence. He’ll never do anything of this nature. But he’ll give you every ounce of evidence that you could possibly need. Go look at all the stuff that you’ll find. I would suggest you go back and see, try to find the videos about –– all the June videos."
That was Byron Williams being interviewed by freelance journalist John Hamilton. According to MediaMatters, in the eighteen months before the shooting, Beck used his Fox News show to attack the Tides Foundation twenty-nine times, claiming that the small foundation is part of a secret George Soros-funded plot to infiltrate and gain control of big businesses and to indoctrinate the youth of America. Even after the shooting Beck continued to threaten Tides.
Glenn Beck: "I’m just going to throw this message out for the people at the Tides Foundation: I’m coming for you. Oh, I’m coming for you. Well, no, not in a—not—Glenn Beck making threats? No, mm-mm. Nope, I’m just going to reverse all the things that you have done, all the things that you have done. The tide is about to change."
From Media Matters, another Leftist propaganda organ of the CorpGov system:
Here we have a prime example of the CorpGov system playing off the false Left-Right paradigm, essentially encouraging what amounts to tribal warfare.
It has become increasingly dangerous for the CorpGov state to attack true American Patriot organizations directly. While still relatively small, the Patriot Community (what the government like to paint as "extremists") is more than just a nascent organization.
People who have realized how the propaganda machine works on both sides of the false Left Right system have forged a new system that stands outside the corp-gov system. The corp-gov system can not afford to engage in heavy handed tactics designed to outright destroy the Patriot Community. Such an action will force more defections from both sides and strengthen the Patriot Community, and weaken their control of the population through their established media outlets.
What we will likely see are more smear campaigns designed to discredit the Patriot Movement.
Watch for something similar to happen with Alex Jones and more calls for the revival of the "Fairness Doctrine".
