Glenn Beck Blames Black Lives Matter for Chicago Torture Video

Just weeks after joining with liberal comedian Samantha Bee to call for a more civil discourse in America, Glenn Beck is back at his old ways. On Thursday morning, the right-wing commentator blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for the Facebook Live video of black teens torturing a young white man reported to have mental disabilities. “Stand up with me and demand justice in Chicago for the beating of a disabled trump supporter by BLM,” the radio host wrote on Twitter, in response to a follower of his saying, “Racism is not ‘kinda sort of okay’ even if it benefits you.” The video in question showed several individuals holding down and attacking the white man, yelling, “Fuck Donald Trump! Fuck white people!” However, there is no evidence to suggest the victim was a Donald Trump supporter or that the assailants were at all affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement.
