Glenn Beck can’t take a joke

I love it when far-right demagogue hypocrites like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are proven wrong or, even better, lose at something. It’s just awesome.

The latest victory of reason over sheer ridiculousness comes courtesy of Isaac Eiland-Hall, a gentleman from Panama City, Florida. In an obvious parody of Beck’s over-the-top, completely unfounded fear-mongering, Eiland-Hall created a website called http://www.GlennBeckRapedAndMurderedAYoungGirlIn1990.com (I’d link to it, but it’s since been taken down); the point being that Beck never denied taking part in the (non-existent) attack, so it must be true! The classic Fox News fallacy turned against its best-known proponent.

Anyways, after learning of Eiland-Hall’s joke, Beck filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), claiming “that the site was registered in bad faith and violated trademark rules.”  On October 29, WIPO ruled in Eiland-Hall’s favour, vindicating his satirical approach and confirming Beck’s hypocrisy.

Then, having proven his point, Eiland-Hall sent Beck a letter, relinquishing control of the site (probably why it has since been taken down).  Read the letter here, and bask in its well-deserved superciliousness (it’s even better if you imagine Beck’s expression while reading it).  Ha!

[Update: The site lives!  Head over to http://gb1990.com/ to see what all the hubbub was about.  And many thanks to the man himself for letting us know.]
