That's what he WANTS you to think. Otherwise, he would have had a good Murrican name like Billybob Jones.

Beck is a moran.

However, since I like to stoke flames, let me take on a different side.

He could argue that it wasnt made in malice that it was made due to emotional distress. That day reminded us a lot of 9/11.

Is it wrong that I would love to see this guy take all the money he gets and post a youtube video of him rolling around in it, a la Eric Cartman, while going; "mmmm Beck's money mmmmm Beck's money aaaahhh Beck's Money".  I'd buy that for a dollar!

The only thing that could truly cause emotional distress in Beck is rational thought. No one will buy that argument

MY GUESS is that his assets are well hidden.

A clever ruse by Beck to deflect attention away from the girls he's raped and murdered. If only I had a chalkboard I could better illustrate his dastardly plot.

Eh, I'm sure Glenn Beck has millions of dollars of libel insurance. Pretty much every media outlet does, and he needs it more than most.

You don't have to prove actual malice in a libel case involving a private citizen. That standard's only for public figures, which this Saudi kid definitely wasn't/isn't. I'm just surprised Beck's insurance company hasn't already settled; the plaintiff's lawyer must smell mega-verdict.
 
2014-03-31 05:03:07 PM  
Maybe Glenn Beck was just picking up the slack from Louis CK's SNL monologue.

I was thinking that was one of the reasons Fox News cut him loose.

He should widen the case, it wasn't just Glenn Beck.  During the initial hours, names were flying everywhere - and articles were being released with those names because everyone was trying to get 'the scoop'.  They later edited out the names, and blamed social media.
 
2014-03-31 05:05:51 PM  
Crushing Glenn Beck would be an awesome inadvertent benefit of the Marathon bombings. Good luck, kid.

This should put a big dent in Beck's cocaine budget.

It's depressing that he has that much money in the first place.
What a world.

All Beck's lawyer has to do is say if this kid hadn't written the Necronomicon, he'd be fine today.
 
2014-03-31 05:10:05 PM  
Wait, isn't he that guy who raped and killed that girl a few years back?

Well, it reminded me of a certain day in 1990 that Glenn Beck still refuses to answer questions about. . .

/Good luck stoking the flames!
//Because there are no trolls on Fark!

We're rooting for you, Mr. Alharbi. Nail him to the wall.


If Glenn Beck isn't sucking off ponies twice a week, why won't he just say that he isn't so we can all move on?
I'm just asking questions!
 
2014-03-31 05:12:35 PM  
I hope this doesn't make Beck cry

That's what they want you to think.
 
2014-03-31 05:12:49 PM  
Anyone get the feeling someone might be trying to distract the public away from something that he may or may not have done in 1990? Maybe the fact that he has never, ever responded to rumors that he raped and murdered a girl. Never once given a convincing alibi. Never offered to take a lie detector. Never even agreed to sit down with investigators.

Seems awfully suspicious to me.
 
2014-03-31 05:13:57 PM  
He should demand that the damages be paid in Gold since Beck maintains that US currency is no good.

malice is a term of art.  it's not precisely a psychological determination, it's a word used that has a legal description.  generally, malice in the defamation context can be shown by knowingly false statements, or statements made with a reckless disregard for the truth.

the reason they allege 'with malice' is because that's a requirement to overcome 1st amendment protections, because this arises out of a public concern/issue.

The guy may have a good case.  We will see.

Sheldon Adelson should just write a check for it, since he's well acquainted with paying for Mormons losing things.

I wonder if he and the Mrs. will ever visit.

Abdulrahman Alharbi, if that is his real name, is an anagram of 'had barbarian mullah' AND 'Ha! Hurl banal barmaid'.  For all we know, these people call an IED a 'barmaid'.

These things aren't just accidents.  Study it out!
 
2014-03-31 05:33:58 PM  
It's sickening how Pavlovian it is assuming a Middle Easterner and/or Muslim is behind every major crime. When Timothy McVeigh bombed Oklahoma City, everybody assumed a Middle Easterner was responsible, with the FBI calling for Arabic translators.

Our whole society has been taught to only view Middle Easterners and Muslims with distrust and scorn. That needs to change.

We're with you, Mr. Alharbi. Break Beck's ass into pieces.
