Glenn Beck speaks murkily about gold's crash yesterday that coincided with the Boston marathon bombing and says that "…something doesn't smell right."
Gold plunged by as much as $145 on Monday. The 9% drop was bullion's worst trading day.
The only thing I have to fear is the government, quite frankly. The government is lying to you, the media not telling the truth. I mean, gold is the original gold standard, and something doesn't smell right. Such a currency of last resort that it's so unstable that the central banks are buying it up.
Let's say this turns out to be a terrorist operation with multiple bombs around the city. The stock market tanking, things going awry — wouldn't this exactly be like how it would happen?
Beck is a former pitchman for Goldline, a precious metal seller that was charged with fraud and forced to refund customers $4.5 million.
Buzzfeed claims that Beck is telling people that the Boston bombing is a reason to buy gold. A spokesperson from The Blaze denies this interpretation.
