You won't hear much about the YouTube attack because the suspect doesn't fit the media narrative

Three people were shot yesterday in an attack on YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California.

All the victims are still clinging to life this morning in local hospitals, but the attempted killer is dead. After firing at people at random, she yelled, “Come at me, or come get me.” Not long after, she turned her weapon on herself, and with that, it was all over.

Before I get into the specifics, I want to first point out the tribal side-taking and mud-slinging that happened in the hours immediately after this attack went down. If you were on Twitter and any other social media platform yesterday when this was happening, you could feel the tension building --- not for the victims of this attack, but between the numerous tribes awaiting someone to blame.

You could practically see thousands upon thousands frantically hitting refresh on their devices or computers, waiting for anything at all that would give them an opportunity to assign blame.

At 1:52 pm, one Twitter user tweeted, “If this shooter at YouTube isn’t a white male with far-right leanings, I will eat my effing hat. Get rid of the effing guns.”

Literally minutes later, local news outlets began reporting that the attacker was a quote “white female.”

The anti-white male and anti far-right tribe quieted down, but the anti-feminists blew their Viking horn and charged into the fight! Here’s one example from a Twitter user in the UK:

Keep in mind that at this point in time there was ABSOLUTELY NO concrete information about what was really happening. Some rumors began to claim that this was a domestic situation, while others said this was a terror attack, but no one really knew a thing.

That sure didn’t stop a California Republican Congressman from going on Fox Business and saying this:

You were going to discuss with me about sanctuary cities and the sanctuary state movement, and it fits right into what you’re talking about right now. Would anyone be surprised?

There wasn’t a single report that might have led anyone to believe this was caused by an illegal immigrant, but the tribal warfare continued.

The blame-assigning and mud-slinging got more and more ridiculous.

I could go on and on. The blame-assigning and mud-slinging got more and more ridiculous as the rumors began to pile up. But here are the facts. The shooter was an Iranian woman who was irate at YouTube’s new content policies. After disappearing for two days, her father called the police to warn them that she might be on her way to YouTube. The police found her sleeping in her car but let her go.

How do I describe this woman? She’s a militant vegan, animal rights activist, bodybuilder and the creator of some of the most bizarre videos you’ve ever seen. In between wild rants in Farsi, she can be seen working out, dancing, cuddling with rabbits and chickens and then back to random militant vegan tirades.

This is the only fact regarding this attack: This woman was a complete nut job. She was crazy. Any attempt to assign a political affiliation, gender, religion or any other label is just playing into modern-day tribal warfare. This attack, like the vast majority of all the others, was all about mental illness.

Social media can be amazing, but in times like this, it’s also contributing to the fracturing and polarization of our country.

We have to be better than this.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
