Byron Williams is a Domestic Terrorist who wanted to kill members of the ACLU and the Tides Foundation, and he decided to do it - because Glenn Beck inspired him to do it.

Via TalkingPointsMemo.

In audio interviews obtained by MediaMatters, accused shooter Byron Williams says Fox News host Glenn Beck "blew my mind" with "the things he exposed."

Williams is charged with allegedly opening fire on police on Interstate 580 in Oakland, California, while on his way to "start a revolution" by attacking members of the ACLU and the Tides Foundation. As we've reported, the Tides Foundation is a favorite punching bag of Glenn Beck's, and he counts the group among his cabal of liberals aiming to bring socialism to America.

William's says that George Soros and Obama caused the BP Oil Spill by contacting with Halliburton to sabotage the well - I suppose to help propel their anti-Industry Global Warming takeover.

Williams: And it was the things that he did, it was the things he exposed that blew my mind. Beck would never say anything about a conspiracy, would never advocate violence, he'll never do anything like, of this nature, but he'll give you every ounce of evidence that you could possibly need.

George Soros is the big bag boogie man, pulling Obama's strings through the Center for American Progress and generally running the show.

Williams: Soros has got himself a little system where rich people can donate and remain anonymous

If Soros can donate anonymously, how come these people seem to know everything he's put his money into?  And my doesn't that idea sound a lot like what the Koch Brothers, Americans For Prosperity and American Crossroads are actually doing with the Tea Party and unlimited contributions to Republican Candidates?

And here's were he unravels the onion.

Williams: Beck is going to deny everything about a violent approach.  He's going to deny conspiracies, but he'll give you everything you need to believe them.  He's protecting himself, and you can't blame him for that.

Oh, yes, actually I think I can.

Williams: They've got Beck pegged as this guy who insights violence, well what I say is ...  the truth insights violence

No, it doesn't - it really really doesn't.

Beck: To the day I die, I'm going to be a progressive hunter.  And drive a stake through the heart of the blood suckers.

Beck may not be shouting FIRE in a crowded theater, he may not be directly specifically pushing for violent action - but what William's reveals his that this is merely to keep himself just an inch away from the The Brandenburg Standard and out of civil or criminal liability for the violence that he has already inspired, not to mention what will happen in the future.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
