Op Ed: “Why Are You Subjecting Me To This?” How Elizabeth Beck Spoke For All Of Us


by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:

When Elizabeth Beck interrupted a round of talking heads yesterday on CNN,  she spoke to more than the pundits with whom she shared a screen. Her words were imbued with an emblematic sense of power when she voiced the groundswell of emotion on the part of the entire country towards the ruling class, stating: “Why are you subjecting me to this?”

Before addressing the smears against Elizabeth Beck which followed rapidly after the event, it’s important to keep in mind that she speaks for Americans in more ways than one: both in her honest language on a cable news slot, and in her representation of thousands of voters who felt cheated by the actions of the DNC in the 2016 Democratic Primary race.

Along with her husband and law partner Jared Beck, and their co-Counsel, the Becks have undergone massive stress as they proceeded with the DNC Fraud lawsuit. Disobedient Media has covered the DNC Fraud Lawsuit extensively, including the serious questions it raised regarding the deaths of Shawn Lucas and Seth Rich. Alleged break-ins and bizarre phone calls added to the severe tension surrounding the issue  for all involved on the plaintiffs’ side.

Disobedient Media reported that the Becks filed a motion for protection as part of the litigation process last year, after a bizarre voice-modulated phone call was made to their legal office from a number corresponding to the Aventura office of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former DNC chairwoman and a defendant in the suit.

As Disobedient Media previously reported, the motion for protection filed by the Becks included the declaration of a plaintiff in the suit, who described allegations that her laptop computer had been tampered with, possibly by an individual who had illegally entered her home. Although the DNC Fraud lawsuit was initially dismissed last year, the plaintiffs have filed an appeal to the dismissal, and the litigation is ongoing.

After everything the Becks, their co-counsel and the plaintiffs in the case have endured, it is perfectly reasonable that they would express anger in response to cable news pleasantries. As Elizabeth Beck stated in a short livestream via Twitter on the matter, she was there to discuss facts, not bloviate.

It is also important to remember, as Beck stated on her livestream, that she had previously appeared on CNN numerous times without incident. Beck has also appeared on other cable news networks like MSNBC recently without any issues.

Beck recounted during her stream that CNN had told her she would appear in a one-on-one interview, and was surprised to find herself on a panel of pundits rehashing tired Trump-Russia narrative talking points. As an unfortunately captive audience, she eventually burst out: “Why are you subjecting me to this?”

With that phrase, Beck addressed more the pundits who shared the screen with her. The sentiments she expressed stand as a metaphor that represents the attitude of the entire public who have also been subjected to the abuses of the plutocratic class day in, and day out.
