Glenn Beck confronted societyâs morality on his television program Thursday evening, shocked and disgusted at the events of recent weeks.
He primarily focused on the horrific report of a 13-year-old girl who was allegedly gang raped by up to ten men in Austin, TX, before being sexually assaulted by another man after being dropped off with ânowhere to go.â Doctors said their findings were consistent with the allegations.
âWhere is the outrage? Whereâs Al Sharpton?â Beck said, pausing briefly with emotion. âWhereâs Barack Obama? Shouldnât the president give a speech saying something like, âThis girl could have been my daughter, after all my daughter is just turning 14?â âŚHow about speeches on the dangers of letting illegals live in the shadows? How about the speeches of letâs just be good to each other? Where are the marches?â
President Barack Obama spoke several times about 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot by George Zimmerman in what a jury recently ruled was self defense. The president said Martin couldâve been his son, or even couldâve been him 35 years ago. The issue aroused sustained national fury over the death of the 17-year-old.
But Beck said the 13-year-old girl should expect no such support.
âSee, nobody really actually cares about people anymore,â Beck said. âItâs really only about politics. Itâs not about Trayvon Martin. They had to make him look like a little 13-year-old-boyâŚWhy? Because it would help them get elected, or re-elected, or get them to cause trouble or get more trouble. But see this little 13-year-old-girl, you donât have to doctor a picture of herâŚshe is 13.â
He continued: âWe are witnessing a society that is completely detached, and we are detached because we have an agenda. Why didnât we tell the story of the 13-year-old-girl? Because of an agenda. The second rapist was black, the others were illegal immigrants, so we donât tell that story. Thatâs not a good story, that doesnât help us with our agendaâŚâ
