Glenn Beck opened his radio show yesterday by attacking the media for failing to report that last weekend’s massive Women’s March on Washington was nothing more than an “astroturf” rally orchestrated by George Soros and radical Islamic groups.

Beck heaped praise on a piece on The New York Times website by Asra Nomani, a self-described liberal Muslim who has previously said that she voted for Donald Trump because she believes that “the liberals and the left have really betrayed America” when it comes to fighting Islamic extremism, who claimed that “Soros has funded, or has close relationships” with, dozens of organization that participated in or supported the march. 

“I’m afraid tomorrow I have to go back to my chalkboard,” Beck said. “We’ve been working on it this weekend. We’re going to give you some of the connections, we’re going to talk to the woman who wrote that article for The New York Times about the connections to George Soros and to radical Islam and have a talk with her. Tomorrow I’m bringing the chalkboard in because the connections are there and if you want to call me a conspiracy theorist again, you can; I’m not going to accuse anybody of anything, I’m just going to point out the facts because somebody has to and perhaps someone in the media will listen.”
