Tea Party Terrorist Byron Williams: Glenn Beck 'Blew My Mind'

It is now confirmed that Tea Party terrorist Byron Williams was inspired by the misinformation, propaganda and misguided vitriol of Glenn Beck. Williams is the Right wing nut who went on a rampage in California a few months ago - armed for battle and hunting for Liberals. In audio recorded statements, Williams reveals how he was influenced by Beck's message. In fact, he was whipped into such a frenzy that he became a "Progressive hunter".

Take a look at the Media Matters piece "Jailhouse Confession: How the right-wing media and Glenn Beck's chalkboard drove Byron Williams to plot assassination".

He considers Beck to be a "school teacher on TV". Wow!

Considering that the extreme Rightwing, such as Beck and Savage and Limbaugh, continue to make openly offensive and dangerous comments towards certain people, it's not surprising that this kind of stuff occurs.

We all remember last year, just as Obama became president, and Glenn Beck poured gasoline all-over someone and then held a match to them, so to symbolise Obama's behaviour to America.

When Beck, day in and day out, says that liberals and the left are taking over and destroying the nation, and he keeps saying that Obama may be a crypto-Marxist until he finally denounces it and comes clean that the isn't one, and if he keeps making this ridiculously violent-imagery statements, then this kind of violent behaviour from Beck's fans is going to keep happening.

When Michael Savage says that lesbians are destroying the foundation of society, that if same-sex marriage is legalised then the whole country will collapse into barbarism, then it's hardly surprising them homophobic violence increases.

It's time these pundits actually got held responsible for the grotesuqe violent-cant that they spew on their programs.
