I’m Not Saying that Glenn Beck Murdered and Raped a Young Girl in 1990; I’m just Asking the Question

Glenn Beck Murdered and Raped Young Girl 1990
Look at his evil picture. How did this man not rape and murder a young girl in 1990?

There’s a new internet meme out there that’s accused Glenn Beck of raping and murdering a young girl in 1990 through the same evidence-free style that Beck himself employs. Beck always says that he’s "just asking questions" whenever he goes on one of his racist, paranoid tirades, so it’s nice to see his own strategy used against him. Obviously, there’s no real evidence that Beck raped or murdered a young girl, which Glennbeckrapedandmurderedayounggirlin1990.com reveals in its disclaimer:

Notice: This site is parody/satire. We assume Glenn Beck did not rape and murder a young girl in 1990, although we haven't yet seen proof that he didn't. But we think Glenn Beck definitely uses tactics like this to spread lies and misinformation.

Read the last sentence again. That's the point. Read it a third time and ignore the name of the site itself, because anyone who believes that we're trying to actually get people to believe Glenn Beck raped and/or murdered is *whoosh* missing the entire point. So don't be dumb like a lot of people are. I greatly expanded this text because so many people *read* it, and *still* didn't understand.
Recently, Beck got word of this internet parody, and his lawyers tried to shut it down. The site is still up and running, and Beck’s threats just seem to have made the meme even more popular.

While I think this meme is tad inappropriate (couldn’t they have accused Beck of something other than rape?), it’s still a smart reversal of Beck’s insidious tactics.
