Glenn Beck Supports Anti-Government Free Speech But If You Question 9-11, You’re A Nut
Beck condemns Elena Kagan and Cass Sunstein for advocating the banning of anti-government free speech, but lumps Van Jones in with them for being a 9-11 truther [which is anti-government free speech!]

On Thursday’s #1 FOX News variety/comedy hour Glenn Beck, Beck demonstrated yet another of his Beckorian multi-personality contradictions, the kind that only fake libertarians can deliver.
Beck devoted his entire show to illustrating who he believes to be some of the key players in the plot to begin a world government, many of whom are directly related to Obama. Among his list of evil plotters is 9-11 truther Van Jones. Van Jones’ contribution to his evil plot to incorporate a one-world government? His belief that 9-11 was an inside job! Wow! That means I too am involved in the plot for a one-world government, and yet nobody told me I was included. Not one invitation to a Bilderberg meeting…nothing…hmmmm.
In the clip below, Beck says:
“For instance, Van Jones, when he was caught on tape, 9-11 truther, and he had a 9-11 truther, you know, his signature on a list..his excuse, he said he just didn’t know what he was signing. He was tricked into signing it, and he’s…he thought he was helping 9-11 families.”
at 8:41 into this clip, Beck includes people like Van Jones in with others like Kagan and Sunstein who are destroying America
Beck completely omits any mention of what constitutes a 9-11 truther as being someone who is “dangerous” or “scary”. He heavily implies in the above excerpt that being a 9-11 truther is synonymous with being someone who hurts 9-11 families, despite the fact that a majority of the family members of 9-11 victims question the official government account of 9-11 as well, and more has been done for these families by truth activists than “official story” believers and the government combined.
Also omitted by Glenn Beck in the course of the entire show, was any mention of the Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and any other of the long list of secret societies that exist in the world that convene to create and enforce world policy.
Later in his program, Beck mentions newly Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and White House Administrator of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein as being two of the biggest anti-First Amendment advocates in the country [of which Beck would be correct]. In fact, both Kagan and Sunstein want the government to regulate free speech, even taxing and censoring it if the government deems particular viewpoints “radical”.
Beck then shows a quote by Sunstein from a 2008 white paper he wrote titled “Conspiracy Theories”. He reads:
“What can the government do about conspiracy theories, and what should it do? Government might ban conspiracy theories somehow defined. Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. Government might engage in informal communication with such parties encouraging them to help.”
What is amazing about the fact that Beck specifically mentioned Sunstein’s very words “..marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories”, is the fact that he said this about Van Jones earlier [in the top clip, at 3:57 into it], “…he [Jones] was not discredited, he was just moved.”
So, on one side of Beck’s two faces, he is saying, “it is OK to criticize and question your government and even believe in conspiracy theories. If you do, your speech should be heard without condemnation or censorship, and people like Kagan and Sunstein have no right to impose regulation on anything you say”, and on the other, he is saying, “If it is a crazy and wacky conspiracy theory [in other words, one Beck doesn’t believe in] then it is perfectly OK for Kagan and Sunstein to attempt to discredit you, tax you and censor you."
This adds to the already mile-long list of glaring contradictions from the mouth of the fake libertarian circus clown Glenn Beck. According to Beck, it is 100% A-OK for you to believe in anything you want about the government. You may hold any conspiracy theory you find to be true, BUT if you don’t believe in the exact same conspiracy theories that Beck does [like the one the entire segment was about, the conspiracy of a coming one-world government], then you are a raving, radical madman who deserves to be censored and discredited by the very likes of Kagan and Sunstein, who he just condemned for proposing such unconstitutional policies.
At the very beginning of this clip, Beck condemns Sunstein for wanting to tax and regulate government conspiracy theories [of which he condemned Van Jones for believing in]
