Did Glenn Beck rape and murder a young girl in 1990, and if not, is it acceptable to ask if he did?

Various sites are discussing the rumor that Glenn Beck allegedly raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. People are asking why Glenn Beck won’t simply step forward and address these rumors and provide documents or other proof to reassure people that he’s not guilty of these crimes.

This is a parody of Glenn Beck’s ridiculous “when did you stop beating your wife” style of reporting. But does it cross a line?

Mad mad lurve for this question. I think we should absolutely demand to know every skeleton in Beck’s closet, as he’s made millions exposing and distorting the actions of others.

I recently read that he made all of that up. I think it was today actually as I was stumbling but I’m very tired.

I think it’s only fair that if he spreads lies, he should be able to handle other people lying about him
He has openly admitted that he used to be (and in some opinions, still is) scum of the earth. So I guess anything’s possible.
Still, the burden of proof is on those who say that he did do it.

Also, this.

He should be held to the same standards that anyone is under US law.
If there is evidence he committed a crime, the authorities will prosecute.

If it was a liberal personality, would it still be considered a parody or would Glenn Beck line up to point the finger in such a situation?

I thought it was Bob Saget…

You ruin it if you explain the parody.

There is no evidence that he raped and murdered a girl. He could just as well murdered and then raped her.

Is Rape While Being a Person Who Calls The President a Nazi an enhancement of the crime? How about Rape Whilst A Crybaby?

I want to see the “long form” acquittal.

What is he hiding?

Qingu's avatar

I actually originally heard that he raped and murdered a girl in 2009.

So he could have raped and murdered 20 girls, 1 each year, from 1990 to 2009.

He did. But only because he had time then. He’s too busy raping the populace’s brains now.

On the other side of the argument, a young woman defends Glenn Beck against these charges on Youtube:

http://www.mediaite.com/online/anti-beck-backlash-hits-nauseating-extreme-with-murder-and-rape-meme/

Her argument:

“Do you honestly think that if someone raped and murdered someone, that they’d be running around the streets if there was so much freakin’ evidence? I don’t think so! Where the hell did this story come from? Probably just some people pissed ‘cuz Glenn Beck throws their garbage ideals in the trayush. Get a life!”

On the other hand, the video only shows a still photo of Glenn Beck with this young woman’s voiceover. It doesn’t show any evidence that Glenn Beck didn’t rape a young woman in 1990.

I heard it was a cat. And it was 1982, not 1980.

Beck has lawyered up.

“They’re attacking us! Lawyers contacted the server hosting guys, the datacenter guys, and the domain name registrar. The latter took my domain offline! Please use GB1990.com for now!

UPDATE: We appear to be back, for now.

Note to the lawyers: It’s apparent you’re reading the site and keeping up-to-date. I suppose our silly justice system means you can’t open a dialogue directly with me? I’ve always felt it never hurt to talk… My email is on the left, my phone number below…

Updated the domain name – got a new one and parked it: DidGlennBeckRapeAndMurderAYoungGirlIn1990.com

Legal docs here”

I heard aliens raped Glenn Beck’s skull in 1977, inserting a parasite that now controls all of his motor functions.

It would explain the drivel that comes out of that man’s mouth.

Qingu's avatar

I heard that he’s not even suing for defamation… he’s suing over trademark infringement.

Which makes sense I guess.

i thought Glenn Beck was an abortion that didn’t take, but this might be worse.

augustlan's avatar

Glenn Beck is an ass. But, two wrongs still don’t make a right.

Ivan's avatar

@augustlan

They do, however, prove a point.

Likeradar's avatar

Why won’t he deny it?

I just discovered this rumor yesterday thanks to @johnpowell. Brilliant.

augustlan's avatar

I have to admit, I did chuckle.

Qingu's avatar

@augustlan, I kind of think this is the exception that proves the “two wrongs don’t make a right” rule.

Kraigmo's avatar

I’m not saying Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990, but there are serious questions to be asked.

ItsAHabit's avatar

Hmmmmm This matter may support the hypothesis that people are inclined to accept rumors about people they don’t like. And it IS hard to start a rumor.

Did you know that in 1985, Beck was involved in producing child pornography right after he decided to stop engaging in incest with his mother? Bored with that, in the late 1980’s he turned briefly to cannibalism. Don’t have any evidence of what he’s doing now, but I guarantee you that whatever it is, it makes cannibalism look tame!

I’ll bet he won’t even deny any of this.
