Skip to comments.Exposure by Free Republic Forces Huffington Post to Pull Article Threatening Glenn Beck
Posted on 08/30/2010 9:12:45 AM PDT by kristinn
The Huffington Post has pulled an article published this morning targeting Glenn Beck with a $100,000 bounty after news of the threat was broken on Free Republic.
The article, titled $100,000 For Glenn Beck's Sex Tapes has been replaced with the following message:
Editor's Note: This piece was published directly to the Huffington Post by its author. It didn't meet our editorial standards and has been removed from the site.
The URL for the pulled article reflects the title: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/beau-friedlander/100000-for-glenn-becks-se_b_698724.html
The author of the threat, Beau Friedlander, is the former editor-in-chief of Air America.
Here is the text of Friedlander's call for information to destroy Beck:
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: email@example.com.
The Free Republic article was posted at 9:19 a.m. EDT, and was immediately picked up by several Tweeters and bloggers who used the Free Republic headline without attribution or just plain stole the article from FR.
The news about the Huffington Post threat reached critical mass when it was reported by Newsbusters.
Free Republic has proven yet again that its value in the conservative blogosphere even as FR enters its 14th year online next month.
Not that that would bother Arianna.
I think he is Edward B. Friedlander.
Who counts among his clients, the Unibomber.
Thanks for the photos, they need to be posted often.
may be construed as a solicitation to assassination...
I'm not seeing thatand I dont think glenn becks security people or the FBI would see it either.
However there may be some sort of RICO statute or other legislation prohibiting this type of ganster activity
.....and I'm not just saying that to defend my own keyboard hooliganism. I myself am guilty of pushing the enuendo and metaphor to the redline into borderline DHS alert territory..........But then again, that was what the founding fathers were all about too
Thank You Kristinn...Job well done!!
Have you found one of the two obit?
Great work, Kristinn.
Glenn Beck may well be forced to run for office—only in the fact he could lead reforms that would drain the swamp for real. He could —in a position of power—end the libral/ progressive power trip of the left. I know its a thing he would hate! But is that a bad thing? Why not a president who doesn’t want the job!
Why doesn’t he just repudiate the things that Beck says?
..and now they finally know it.
193 & 194 are n00bies as of today as well.
Watch them get violent while hopping up and down charging that violence comes from the right.
It takes a whole lot more to get the right violent. And they do not want to see that, guaranteed, and have no way of making that happen either ,unless they act to take away our liberty. And both Congress and Obama know where that line is. That is why they have to lie, obfuscate, and work in the dark behind closed doors.We have drawn the line of freedom in concrete, not sand. They now dare not cross it
in the light, and seek to undermine it in the dark.
Its amazing the amount of violent allusions the left keeps putting out, and this is one of many.
These are NOT democrats. Democrats would not threaten people or pretend to. The Liberal fascists can't stand effective opposition, they go nuts like this Huffington author did.Thats why fascism is a disease, a sociopathic disease, and we mean to inoculate it with the vaccine of freedom!
Here it COMES fascists. BEND OVAH! Get better quick or enter the halls of historic infamy, denigrated and ignored in our nation's history, like the genuine socipaths you have become!( And they call the right whackos? Oh puleeease!)
I hope more and more of them post this sociopathic tripe.It shows the entire nation that fascism in America is a real threat coming from the left.What Glen Beck did therefore needs to be repeated all across America,let that light of liberty shine, so more of these leftist fascists will go into paroxysms of sociopathy, thereby revealing themselves to all in the broad light of day.
Don’t know how I missed those. They look legit, though.
There was a link to this thread posted on Drudge. Some signed on after reading about us there.
Outstanding work, folks. Simply outstanding.
Makes one proud to be a member here.
note to JimRob: remind folks of this when it comes time for the next Freepathon fund drive.
I hope O'R brings it up again, more clearly and hard-hitting this time.
Speaking of which, did BOR concede, keep his end of the bargain, and give his 8:00 time slot to Beck.
I am offering to broker the deal. There are several ways to raise the funds ranging from an individual paying the whole thing (probably rather easy to arrange), a news agency buying it, or micro-funding through progressive blogs like Daily Kos, FireDogLake, Crooks and Liars. I am merely a catalyst here. (Make a disingenuous comment, get a concrete answer--so unlike the right wingers, eh?)
What an appropriate name.>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I had a few drinks at a staff picnic today, and so I said the idjit's name quickly and you know, it came out well:
He leaves no bone unturned in fast forwarding the liberal fascist agenda.Oh yeah. They are running out of time!
CONGRATULATIONS KRISTINN! A well earned notch on the grip of your ZOT .45!
Nada. He seems to be another mystery man. Still looking.
Oh, wow kristinn.......you are AWESOME!
Maybe a journolister! But he has egg on his face today!
“dang... that sounds like a hit contract to me... It is time to pop the tea baggers favorite balloon”
The left really, really doesn’t want to get into a “cap” popping contest.
“It is time to pop the tea baggers favorite balloon”
That CAN be taken numerous ways.
I'll make a counteroffer of $100,000 to anyone who can provide a shred of evidence that any writer at the Huffington Post has a sense of morality exceeding that of the average sewer rat. Heck, might as well make it a million dollars, given that high bar the money's perfectly safe.
>>they need to be posted often.
FYI: It's still up on his Twitter page:
Way to go Freepers. Thank you! You look out for “the folks” better than Ted Baxtor’s alter ego at Fox News!
What a new low they reach. I remember Glenn Beck talking about drinking problems before he sobered up. At least he admitted to his problems and is now sober.
LOL and you do it so well.
Which would not bother Mizzz Huffinpuff or any of her lefty friends one bit.

Ten years at hard labor if I was the judge.
You so totally rock, kristinn! Thank you!
EAGLES UP !!!
Definitely ROCKING there, friend!
First they ignore you.
Then they try to destroy you.
Then you win!
John the Baptist was not the one to bring the people to God ... he was the voice in the wilderness announcing the coming of The One who would.
I'm not surprised, and yet I am... This "freedom of speech is only for Liberals" crap infuriates me.
Glen Beck has highlighted this article on his new website.
Soros' money, I'm sure.
10 hours later since you posted that link, and that article is STILL linked there at the NY Observer!
That’s the lil’ problem Friedlander et al have. Articles like this tend to live on forever on the internet. It should come back to really bite them HARD in a court of law!
More and more the leftists getting more evil....what a horrid piece to put on the internet.
Those that does that every where, the internet, radio, and, TV Are vulgar group
