Skip to comments.Spotlight From Glenn Beck Brings a CUNY Professor (Frances Fox Piven) Threats

On his daily radio and television shows, Glenn Beck has elevated once-obscure conservative thinkers onto best-seller lists. Recently, he has elevated a 78-year-old liberal academic to celebrity of a different sort, in a way that some say is endangering her life.
Frances Fox Piven, a City University of New York professor, has been a primary character in Mr. Becks warnings about a progressive take-down of America. Ms. Piven, Mr. Beck says, is responsible for a plan to intentionally collapse our economic system.
Her name has become a kind of shorthand for enemy on Mr. Becks Fox News Channel program, which is watched by more than 2 million people, and on one of his Web sites, The Blaze. This week, Mr. Beck suggested on television that she was an enemy of the Constitution.
Never mind that Ms. Pivens radical plan to help poor people was published 45 years ago, when Mr. Beck was a toddler. Anonymous visitors to his Web site have called for her death, and some, she said, have contacted her directly via e-mail.
In response, a liberal nonprofit group, the Center for Constitutional Rights, wrote to the chairman of Fox News, Roger Ailes, on Thursday to ask him to put a stop to Mr. Becks false accusations about Ms. Piven.
Mr. Beck is putting Professor Piven in actual physical danger of a violent response, the group wrote.
Fox News disagrees. Joel Cheatwood, a senior vice president, said Friday that Mr. Beck would not be ordered to stop talking about Ms. Piven on television. He said Mr. Beck had quoted her accurately and had never threatened her.
The Glenn Beck Program, probably above and beyond any on television, has denounced violence repeatedly, Mr. Cheatwood said.

Spotlight on Piven’s own words.
This is BS. Mrs. Pivens has systematically been depriving especially minority groups to enjoy a good life for decades. It is ridiculous to say Beck is inciting death threats. The only people I have seen who are doing this are the Left. Their hate just fills the air with a stink almost indescribable it is so bad.
Yeah well, heres a quarter. Call me when she receives more tha Palin or Limbaugh.
With video. If you don’t want to be in the spotlight, stay out of it, frances.
She said what she said. Note they didn’t call Beck on the truth, only on their version of it. She is an “acedemic/” Big effn deal.
Of course not.
She recently complained that we don’t have rioting in the streets like Turkey.
Typical liberal response. Anything goes until it’s turned back on them and then they cry unfair.
You mean Greece? That’s what the article said.
Thank you Glenn Beck, for making another pinko-commie squirm under the light of truth.
The Center for Constitutional Rights wants to limit Beck’s free speech? LOL
Screw academics...sick of their whining and their progressive BS.
A hit dog howls. The Right has been very cowardly in shining the light of truth on these Marxist cockroaches who have been sabotaging the nation for decades from their university covens. People, especially parents and taxpayers paying their salaries, need to know what these enemies of freedom have written and taught generations of students.
Right on, Glenn Beck and Roger Ailes! You are patriots.
The NEW YORK TIMES has no problem exposing America's
secrets during war, but always is there to protect
terrorists, murderers, and America's enemies.

Hilarity ensues...this is the same little itty bitty woman who together with her deceased husband used the Watts (LA) riots of the mid’60’s as their inspiration for their Cloward-Piven theory for societal change. Nothing non-violent about that!
Yeah. Doesn’t really matter. She just wants riots to bring about “justice”.
Caught that. Hit post and watched it fly right by. Gah!
