Reacting to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Libya that left four Americans dead, Glenn Beck on his show Wednesday called the media “negligent” for attempting to blame a YouTube clip for the killings instead of understanding and reporting on the threat of radical Islam in the unstable Middle East.
The media has suggested repeatedly that an anti-Muslim movie clip posted on YouTube enraged a mob of radical Islamists to the point that they killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in a fiery attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday. Stevens became the first U.S. diplomat to die in the line of duty since 1979, Beck pointed out.
Beck explained the attack was planned and coordinated, not a spur of the moment attack based on a YouTube video — a statement that lines up with various news reports released Wednesday.
“I’ll report the truth. That film has been out. They waited,” Beck said. “That film — that attack happened yesterday because a group of subhuman, blood-sucking, American-hating animals wanted to kill Americans on the anniversary of September 11. It’s just that simple.”
“No content in any movie is justification for killing anybody.”
Beck added that the nation shouldn’t be surprised at the media’s analysis given the fact it is the same media that argued the Arab Spring was a peaceful Democracy movement.
