Troofer Plans to Sue Glenn Beck

Don't expect this case to get much past the initial filing:

Specifically, Greg Hoover will be suing the above-described defendants in Federal Court for Beck’s having repeatedly broadcast statements characterizing those who question the government’s official version of the events of 9/11 as, "anarchists," "terrorists" and as persons denying the Holocaust.

The complaint will note that - on October 22, 2007 - Beck suggested that those identifying themselves as associated with the 9/11 truth movement are "dangerous" "anarchists" who deny the Holocaust, and are "the kind of group that Timothy McVeigh would come from."

Relatively non-controversial statements there, but apparently Mr Hoover (whom I have never heard of before) feels his reputation has been defamed.

Update: More lawsuit threats (and loads of profanity) in this call between Troy and Derek Johnson of Gage's Gaggle of Geese:

Note that Johnson, like almost all Troofers, has "interesting facial hair". What's up with that?
