Beck Inciting Violent Threats Against 78-Year-Old Professor, Frances Fox Piven

Frances Fox Piven
The Center for Constitutional Rights has sent a letter to Fox president, Roger Ailes, warning him that Republican propagandist Glenn Beck’s on-going, libelous criticism of Dr. Frances Fox Piven has generated threats of violence against the 78 year old professor:

the CCR asks that Ailes distinguish between First Amendment rights, of which they are “vigorous defenders” and an “intentional repetition of provocative, incendiary, emotional misinformation and falsehoods [that place that person] in actual physical danger of a violent response.”

Beginning in September of 2010, Glenn Beck started branding Piven, a distinguished professor of Political Science and Sociology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, as an “enemy of the Constitution.” Piven, well known for advocating for the organizational rights of the poor and encouraging voter registration, has since received threatening phone calls and letters, and has become the subject of many death threats left open to the public on Glenn Beck’s website, The Blaze.”
