Huffington Post Publishes "$100,000 for Glenn Beck Sex Tape" Then Pulls Article

by the Left Coast Rebel

Well ain't that nice - former Air America editor in chief (read failure) Beau Friedlander authored a piece earlier today, "$100,000 for Glenn Beck's Sex Tape"It beautifully personifies that which the modern liberal persona has become (vile, unhinged, mean spirited, foul mouthed and degenerate) :

beck sex tape 2

I have screen-shot the entire article above because the actual piece has been scrubbed by HuffPo. Nevertheless the wandering net-venturer can still view the cached copy (above) so do so while you still can. I found the key phrase (away from the nonsense and vulgarity) to be this 'offer':

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.

I see, so essentially PuffHo writer Beau Friedlander is not going to pay the $100,000 himself but will 'broker' which in mindspeak is pretty close to the leftist-progressive-collectivist cause of 'from each according to his ability..'

On the other hand, I'm not sure that an Air America head honcho would be a very good choice of candidate to send your hard earned dollars to, bankruptcy and all.

Too bad it went down. When one clicks the "$100,000 for Glenn Beck Sex Tape" (non cached) link, one is greeted with:

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.

As much as I hate the Puffington Host I have to give credit where credit is due (and am somewhat shocked that they actually do have standards and took the article down).

Regardless, they get what they deserve by hiring dimwitted, bombthrowing, intellectually vacuous, nincompoopish, Bolshevik, libtarded jerks like Beau Friedlander.

Updated: Air America Editor Beau Friedlander apologizes and quotes a 'friend' who says something that sounds Leninist:

First, I owe Glenn Beck an apology. I crossed the line. On the off chance something comes in over the transom...scratch that; I'll delete the email account. Problem solved.

A friend commented:

The people on the left who parrot and jerk their knees are just as much an obstacle to an outcome that benefits the maximum number of people as the "sheepies" are.
Even in apology this guy sounds like a communist (or at least his friend, whom he quotes, does). Lord, how have you let these people thrive in our beautiful nation?

Addendum from RightKlik:

Thanks to the LCR for tackling this interesting topic. I'm a bit too lazy to put up my own post, so LCR is letting me put my 2¢ here:

First observation... When the lefties should be crowing about what they've achieved during the four years that they've controlled congress and the two years that they've held control of the White House and Congress, they're focused on smearing a talk show show host. No wonder Americans have lost confidence in the Democratic Party and the professional left.

Observation #2... It's interesting to hear a lefty talk about "anti-Islam thinking" and an imaginary "anti-black president movement" before proceeding to flaunt his special brand of anti-Christian bigotry:
Glenn Beck is also a Mormon. It matters. His religion typifies the noble lie that the neocons originally set out to defend against the counterculture—Archie Bunker’s America—where a woman’s place was in the home and with baby, and an African American’s place was in a ghetto. Mormons revere women much like Hindis [sic] do the cow...
Is this yet another example of oikophobia? No wonder Beau Friedlander is off the air... With ignorant friends like Friedlander, the Dems really don't need enemies.

Third observation... The Huffington Post pulled Beau Friedlander's hate screed shortly after it was initially posted. That was smart. Unfortunately, HuffPo missed an opportunity to take an unflinching stand against left-wing bigotry. Instead of explicitly repudiating the "angry and hate-filled rant slandering Tea Party members, Mormons, Republicans and the American public generally," the Huffington Post simply provided a note stating that the piece "didn't meet our editorial standards."

Which standards?

Final observation... Lefties don't know how to apologize. In fact, the left has refined the non-apology to an art form. This is from Friedlander's "apology" post at HuffPo:
I have an odd sense of humor... like I said, I crossed a line.

Also: Had a change of heart. I got many very concerned letters from people who were upset by my post, some of them magically were focused on me and my family more than arguing about what I wrote. So I changed my mind.

It is a pleasure to get to know people form [sic] the right. They are clearly morally different...
To which I replied:

"As opposed to Lefties, who are morally indifferent?"


In all seriousness, even the left knows that liberals are morally impaired.


  1. What's your problem with communism, dude.

    It's the wave of the future.

  2. Yeah, your president is a communist. It's fashionable these days to spout collectivist platitudes.

    Though I think that things will begin to be set right in November.

  3. I wonder if "right leaning" bloggers and media outlets like Newsmax reporting had something to do with the story being pulled?

    Are all 57 States "dispicable" too?

  4. This is all they have left... The left is in big trouble.

  5. So did they pull it (the article, that is) because of the Beck thing or the rest of the article that was simply un-intelligible? Maybe both.

    Small wonder Air America went under.

  6. What the hell did Glen Beck ever do to anybody? He is hated BECAUSE he is virtuous. That will always earn the scorn of scum. Same goes for Sarah Palin. What did she ever do to these vermin who hate her so much? Nothing but be a decent human being.

    Satan walks this Earth and his minions are eager to do his will.

  7. Well said, Chuck. You're so right. But I hope and pray that decent people finally see what the left is made of...

  8. I couldn't make it through the whole article. How can they call this journalism? It's friggin' stupid gutter smut!

  9. This doesn't surprise me yet it screams 'pathetic'. A mouthed apology from a guy showing mock surprise at the principles of the right—a guy who just posted a slam to GB, offering to broker funds for 'a sex tape'. Can this guy hear himself? If this approach to politics is from the same watering hole that Al Franken's been drinking from, salt the water already.

  10. "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."

    So he's offering to "Pimp" anyone who would like to make 100,000.00 dollars?

    I think I see why it got scrubbed, he's soliciting for a tape of a sexual act, and a transaction for money is involved.

    Huffpo will let anyone publish on her website even wouldbe Pimps.
