Media Matters: Beck's violent rhetoric keeps having real world consequences

October 22, 2010- On today's radio show Glenn Beck said he couldn't believe that Stephen Broden, a frequent guest on his Fox News show and a pastor who attended his 8-28 rally, said that violent overthrow of the U.S. government is an option that "is on the table."

In fact, as the video shows, the reports of these comments are accurate:

Broden has appeared on Beck's show at least 6 times in the last year (via Nexis). In July, Broden was part of Beck's panel of "preachers and pastors" who were there to provide "a look at today's news." Broden also appeared with Alveda King to discuss their version of the history of the civil rights movement. Beck cited Broden's association with Alveda King as one reason he didn't believe the charges of violent rhetoric. Notably, Alveda King has compared same-sex marriage to genocide.
