Okay, Glenn Beck has completely lost it. Now he’s warning his audience against looking up his conspiracy theories on Google…because Google might be a part of the conspiracy:
Who are they? Are they right? Are they left? Are they clean? Are they dirty? Are they front groups? I don’t know. May I recommend if you’re doing your own homework, don’t do a Google search. It seems to me that Google is pretty deeply in bed with the government. Remember, maybe this is explaining why Google is being kicked out of all the other countries. Are they just a shill now for the United States government? Who is Jared Cohen? Is he a private citizen or government operative? And isn’t this the second Google guy we’ve found? This is the second Google executive now being exposed as an instigator of a revolution.
Well, isn’t that a convenient explanation for why Google always seems to debunk the nonsense spewing out of Glenn Beck’s mouth.
Of course, less than two weeks earlier, he was thanking his audience for using Google to look up his Egypt conspiracy theory:
I said, “please look this up.” I said, “pause the show, and look up the word ‘caliphate.'” … Let me show you the Google trend report from the day of that episode. Here’s the chart, caliphate — oh, by the way, we’re on it at 2:00 p.m. West. Caliphate went to number one at Google trends. You see the spike? That’s when this program is on. So, let me, first, humbly thank you for not taking my word on it, humbly thank you for not sitting there as a mindless stooge. When I ask you to do your homework, you do. Thank you. If you did, you know caliphate is not some crazy conspiracy.
So, who is Glenn Beck? Batshit insane Fox host, or government operative? Glenn doesn’t know. Maybe we should Google it. Or maybe not.
