Huffington Post Offers $100,000 for Sex Tapes, Phone Records to Destroy Glenn Beck
Monday, August 30, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 08/30/2010 6:24:16 AM PDT by kristinn

Edited on 08/30/2010 11:25:08 AM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

In the wake of Glenn Beck's hugely successful Restoring Honor rally held in Washington, D.C. this weekend, the Huffington Post has published an offer of $100,000 to anyone with evidence that would destroy Beck's reputation and take him off the political/cultural battlefield.

An essay written by Beau Friedlander, the last editor-in-chief of Air America before it shut down this year, was posted in the Politics section of the Huffington Post today with the title, $100,000 For Glenn Beck's Sex Tape.

Friedlander says he will not use his own money for the hit, but that he will "broker" the deal.

It is time to pop the tea baggers' favorite balloon (so what if it will be replaced by another?), and with that in mind I hereby offer to negotiate a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever. I am not offering the cash myself, but I will broker the deal and/or raise the money for what you bring to the table. (And it better be good.)

If you have the goods, or if you want to contribute to a slush fund to buy more takedowns (probably not tax deductible), please contact me at: glennbecksextape@gmail.com.

Friedlander couches his offer in the context of Andrew Breitbart's offer of $100,000 for the Journolist listserve messages, but this is more in line with pornographer Larry Flynt's blackmail campaign against Congressmen during Bill Clinton's impeachment, which followed a threat from Clinton conveyed by George Stephanopoulos to expose their sex lives.

Likewise, the Huffington Post has ties to the Obama White House, raising the question of whether the White House is behind this targeting of Beck.

They’re reaching desperation. They see how Beck’s following swells, and they want to destroy him and impugn his character in order to say that the “Right wing” is corrupt.

Look no further than your own caucus you Left-coast-libtards!

When the left does not like somebody or something the only thing they do is set out to destroy it.

Like Sarah Palin.

Like Glenn Beck.

Like Christianity.

Like America.

Kristinn, is there NO depth of evil to which these anti-American forces will plummet in order to achieve their dangerous agendas??? I swear, every day, more and more I believe in demon possession, and that they are running rampant over this globe!!! :*(

Prayers going up for Glenn Beck and his family. May God protect them from evildoers!

Extortion? Blackmail? Libel? Slander? Is there no category whereby one could say "Hey, in a civilized society, your actions are not acceptable."?

I guess the politics of personal destruction is now just a matter of money.

It’s Alinsky style tactics. They can’t take down his arguments, so they’ll take him down instead. Hopefully, Beck has nothing in the closet these libs can use for ammo.

People ought to send spam to that email address.

This reeks of desperation. Beck must have hit them hard on Saturday.

And even if incriminating evidence exists, Beck has admitted to having a self-destructive lifestyle in the past. Unless it is recent, it should be a non-issue.

Oh wait, that was another $100K offer.

The left does not discuss the rally.

Instead they put a price on Beck’s head based on “crime think”

The huffer does not even have the money, he is just promising to pay.

Does Beck have political aspirations? I was under the impression that he does not. Plus, he’s the first to admit he’s made a lot of serious mistakes in his life. Anyone who’s watched him or listened to him would know this, and wouldn’t care much about whatever the libs turn up.

Beck’s already inoculated himself against dirt from his early life; it’d have to be pretty recent to do any damage.

It used to be only strange rich people, or gossip magazines only that were doing this (offering money for dirts). Now, a “reputable” leftist media is doing it. It tells us the level of Huffpo’s “reputation”.

Don’t fall for what this tard is peddling. He is just trying to glom onto the momentum that is building for change in this country. In this day and age, we can easily pull the author’s credit report/tax records/liens, you name it and post it all over the internet.

But since they started it, let’s start heavy oppo on OlberMaddow Stat!

Beck could take whatever are the worst parts of his life, document it, and go claim the $100,000 for himself.

That would turn the tables.

LOL, this will have zero effect because Beck admits to having lived a fallen lifestyle and has repented. Hence, there is little if anything in the way of hypocrisy to charge.

LOL...Beck has learned their lessons and has largely inoculated himself from this sort of thing by virtually admitting to having been a scumbag, drug addict and practicing alcoholic in the past.

Beck has pretty much been free about airing his past dirty laundry, so even if something like this came out, unless it was very recent, I don't think it would cause much of a stir.

If it was from say 10 or more years ago, it would do little more than validate Beck's life story.

LOL! And let's not forget all the rumors we used to hear about Ms. Huff-n-puff being a gold digger and worse--could be someone has dirt on her, too. Maybe this is a spitting contest they might regret.

Everyone likely has something they would not want splashed on public pages. If not them then a close family member. The best thing about Beck is he has been upfront about himself, admitting his battle with alcohol, etc. But this is the sort of thing that causes many good people not to want to get involved in a public position. Why would anyone want to put themselves or their families thru this? It doesn’t matter if you’re on the side of right. In fact, if you are, expect for these very evil people to do whatever they can to take you down. And I doubt they care if the video or photos are real. Only that they are convincing to an increasingly easily fooled public. This really is bread and circuses.

"When the left does not like somebody or something the only thing they do is set out to destroy it."

That is very true, but I think this would backfire on the Loonies..Beck would have more followers and be more popular than ever. A sex tape is about the only thing that makes the famous more famous. Paris Hilton, Pam Anderson and Kim Kardashian are sure idolized in this country. It would be no different for Beck.

Beck already opened his closet and threw it out on the floor. He in no way tries to portray himself as anything remotely equivelant to a saint. Their level of despiration is astounding.

None is least assailable as a sinner who confessed his sins and Glenn is in a regular state of admission on both his radio and TV shows. Just goes to show how much these losers really know their competition.
