Caliphate. A word that most Americans probably have not heard.
A word that is not in the digital version of the Oxford-English dictionary.
A word and a concept that until this week was relatively obscure and then FOX TV’s Glenn Beck decided to explain the word and it’s meaning to his sizable audience.
And so Beck’s chalkboards were used to explain the meaning of Caliphate. But as he always does, Mr. Beck challenged his audience to do their own homework and investigate all of the information he delivers on his nightly program. Google recorded so many searches for “caliphate” and “caliphate definition” that both cracked the top five in Google trends.
