Glenn Beck is promoting, politicizing and capitalizing on the deaths of thousands of Americans on September 11, 2001 with an upcoming event dubbed the 9/12 Project. Originally planned as a day of patriotism and unity, like that found after the terrorist attacks on 9/11, the so-called “grassroots” style events promoted by Glenn Beck have become anything but. Not only are the events now promoted as an outright attack on the Obama Administration, but it’s also come to light that it’s not a true grassroots movement at all.

The web site for the event, 912dc.org, is owned by FreedomWorks, led by former corporate lobbyist and Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX). FreedomWorks is providing the funding and organization that makes this event possible, while Glenn Beck provides the promotion. You’ll notice many names similar to those found associated with the Tea Party astroturfing.

Gold Sponsor Tea Party Patriots is a website run by FreedomWorks staffers. When Tea Party Patriots list serv members objected to the 9/12 march symbol, they were rebuffed and told that all final decisions were made by FreedomWorks.

Gold Sponsor Our Country Deserves Better is a Republican PAC that also operates the Tea Party Express, a bus tour arriving in DC for the 9/12 march. Our Country Deserves Better/Tea Party Express, which has ran an advertisement comparing Obama to Hitler, is managed by the GOP consulting firm Russo, Marsh & Rogers.

Bronze Sponsors The Heartland Institute and the Competitive Enterprise Institute are phony think-tanks dedicated to churning out academic-appearing reports to discredit global warming. Like FreedomWorks, both organizations are funded by David and Charles Koch of the Koch Industries oil empire, one of the largest privately held companies in the world.

Bronze Sponsor American Conservative Union is run by David Keene, a lobbyist for a firm that represents private health care companies, including the insurer HealthFirst.

Bronze Sponsor The Senate Conservatives Fund is a Republican Party PAC run by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).

Other sponsors include The National Association for Rural Landowners, who made the case for a secession, followed by a violent civil war in a YouTube video; and FreeRepublic, a right wing forum that gave platform for the Holocaust museum shooter’s writings. Furthermore, as the tone has become more anti-government, several Republican politicians are scheduled to speak, including Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA), and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).

Finally, take a look at what Glenn Beck thinks of 9/11 victim’s families:

BECK: You know, it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims’ families. It took me about a year. Um, and I had such compassion for them and I really, you know, I wanted to help them, and I was behind — let’s give them money, let’s get them started, and all of this stuff. And I really didn’t — all the 3,000 victims’ families, I don’t hate all of them, I hate about, probably about ten of them. But when I see 9/11 victim family, you know, on television, or whatever, I’m just like, ‘Oh, shut up.’ I’m so sick of them. Because they’re always complaining. And we did our best for them. And again, it’s only about ten.

    • tea_party_is_annoying says:

      If you hate this website so much, then just leave and go somewhere else where lots of people will support and even care about your far-right beliefs. Simple as that! Oh, and Fox News sucks ass!

  2. FoxNewsBoycott says:

    GFY, Really? Why don’t you actually try to disprove something instead of posting like an anonymous Internet tough guy showing his ignorance?

  3. HOW DARE YOU QUOTE GLENN BECK! ONLY LIBERAL SCUM WOULD DO THINGS LIKE REPEAT WHAT GLENN BECK SAID!

  4. FreedomWorks is providing the funding and organization that makes this event possible, while Glenn Beck provides the promotion. You’ll notice many names similar to those found associated with the Tea Party astroturfing.

    thanks

  5. Hi really enjoyed reading your article and was wondering FOX News & Glenn Beck opponents: Can you explain the difference between opinions, statements of fact, and lies?
    .-= Claire´s last blog ..London FlatsIf you spend some time =-.

    • Claire – Can you? I know the definition of those words, and also how they are used in a sentence. I also know that many times the connotation of a word is not the same as the true definition. Let’s hear your definitions. Glenn Beck only has hatred coming out of his mouth. Remember, this is a man who in partnership with another of his ilk Limburger recently mocked President Obama’s youngest daughter. Not only is he disrespectful of the 9/11 victims and their families but his friend smelly cheese Limburger made fun of the 12 year old girl murdered in the same shooting as was Gabby Giffords in AZ. This man does absolutely nothing that does not keep his name in the limelight and money coming into his wallet. He hates everything that gets in the way of what he desires, and right now most of the country is in his way.

  6. So, you want to boycott Fox news for something Glenn Beck said when he was working for CNN…. for something he said on the radio??

  7. Cato, You would love it if it were that simple… Fox News pays Beck, even after making such ridiculous statements. Fox News is complicit, if not responsible, for the crap Beck spews on a daily basis.
