It Is The Government's Fault Glenn Beck Is Spinning Wild Theories About The Missing Malaysian Airliner
One thing you learn from regularly watching Glenn Beck's programs is that he is not to blame for the fact that he happens to subscribe to or promote wild conspiracy theories because it is the government and progressives and various unseen forces who have made it so that Beck can no longer believe anything that anybody tells him.
So, fresh from a week's vacation, the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines' flight MH370 represents essentially the perfect Glenn Beck story because there is so much confusion and conflicting information and general uncertainty about just what has happened that pretty much any explanation can almost seem plausible, no matter how outlandish. And since passing off outlandish stories as seemingly "plausible" is Beck's forte, it was no surprise to see him spend ten minutes today laying out his theory about just what has happened to this airplane.
Seizing upon news that twenty employees from a company called Freescale Semiconductor were on board, Beck speculated that these employees had the technology and expertise to "cloak" the plane and make it invisible to radar and detection. As such, the plane was probably diverted to someplace like Pakistan where is could be hidden and repainted to look like a British Airways jet and then flow over the Atlantic Ocean low enough so as not to be seen by radar right below another British Airways jet, flying on the same path but at a much higher altitude and registering on radar. At some point, and without explaining how this would happen, Beck speculated that the real British Airways jet could then be blown out of the sky, allowing the stolen plane to "jump up" onto that flight path and cloak itself as the now destroyed jet and fly on to Washington, DC without raising any suspicions or setting off alarms.
Sure, that seems really convoluted, not to mention probably nearly impossible to actually pull off ... but, as Beck said, the problem is that nobody trusts the government any more and so people start to believe all sorts of wild conspiracy theories.
"See, this is the problem," Beck said. "Once you lose trust as a government, once you lie to your people over and over again, this is what happens; conspiracy theories go crazy because I don't trust our government at all":
