Huffington Post Lied: Glenn Beck Did Not Say Jews Killed Jesus
Summary:Glenn Beck boycotters blatantly lie to support their side, discrediting their own boycott campaign and the Huffington Post, all in the name of silencing their opposition.
    The Huffington Post published an article July 15, 2010 titled "Glenn Beck: Jews Killed Jesus," then began their article with the words "Glenn Beck suggested that the Jews killed Jesus on his Fox News show Tuesday." Their headline clams Beck made the statement, but the article the stated beck "suggested" it. There is a big difference between stating something and suggesting something, but the fact is, Beck did neither.

   The article features a video and quote from the Glenn Beck show, but the quote does not even support the claim of suggestion. Glenn Beck was referring to a religious theology and stated two 'ifs" regarding that theology, and then drew a conclusion based on the two ifs. Beck did not claim Jews killed Jesus in any way. The quote in the article is: "...If he was a victim, and this theology was true, then Jesus would've come back from the dead and made the Jews pay for what they did. That's an abomination."

   Beck was discussing a religious group to discredit it, drawing a conclusion based on the philosophy of that group. Beck stated "that's an abomination" referring to that philosophy. Fred Taub, President of Boycott Watch said "Glenn Beck has been under fire for a long time by people who want to silence him because he disagrees with their politics. The Glenn Beck boycotters have made some make wacky claims in the past. This incident exemplifies the which-hunt to attack Beck who called the philosophy an abomination. If this is what the Beck boycotters have to do to get attention, their boycott is a failure.

   Boycott Watch has reported this as a boycott to silence free speech and intimidate voters. It started in California with Proposition 8 and a boycott to intimidate voters . Fred Taub was on several radio shows in California arguing the dangers of the boycotts to intimidate voters as anti-American. One of those shows has since been cancelled and Glenn Beck's ratings have been going up, further indicating the boycotters has failed.
