    Firsat off....anyone on this board GOING to this thing this weekend?

    secondly...MLK's son wrote this:

    This weekend Glenn Beck is to host a "Restoring Honor" rally at the Lincoln Memorial. While it is commendable that this rally will honor the brave men and women of our armed forces, who serve our country with phenomenal dedication, it is clear from the timing and location that the rally's organizers present this event as also honoring the ideals and contributions of Martin Luther King Jr.

    I would like to be clear about what those ideals are.....(continued in article)

    Thats it, some douchbag with delusions of grandeur is going to speak on the anniversary and spot of one of the greatest speeches in the history of the country concerning peace and brotherhood and all you can say is "we live in interesting times". I'm sure you'd like to be there.

    "Interesting times" INDEED


    They assasinated MLK for trying to bring people together.

    They Praise Beck for tearing us apart.

    Glen Beck is a great American hero. A libertarian who gets it. MLK was a great man who had a dream and so does Beck. It's not the same dream as the NAACP, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who continue to control a race of people through their words all in the name of power.

    So he has a right to do it, but liberals don't like the timing or location? Hmm, where have I heard that line of thinking dismissed before? Oh I know, the ground zero mosque debate, which will be permanent unlike a one day event.

    Watch the double standard hit the fan on this one, watch the hypocrits come slithering out from under their rocks, Jessie Jackoff and Little Al having been waiting quite awhile some goody like this to come along.

    Beck = Bad
    Mosque = Good

    This azz hole says that "we can reclaim the civil rights movement." like it was taken away from him and the other nit wits that follow him. MLK stood for just the opposite of what beck does, exclusion. Its ironic when someone who called the first black POTUS a racist stands were MLK did and says that he wants to reclaim the civil rights movement, It doesn't sound civil at all.

    interestng perspective. I never even thought of the connection to the mosque.


    Funny, I dont hear anyone saying HE CAN'T DO IT there, its disrespectful etc.

    Even MLK's son isnt saying that.

    Don't know where you guys are getting this. who is saying that?


    I think the dude is a moronicA-hole, but he has the right to speak where he wants, even if its a divisive self indulgent moment.

    Its SUPER ironic, and this dude and his minions have no clue. As I say with a lot of these right wing stunts, if it wasn't so sad, it would be comical.

    Huh....The Lincoln Memorial survived Nixon meeting with Viet Nam war protestors and a concert for Obama - it'll survive Glen Beck. No biggie.

    More power to him.

    Beck isn't tearing anybody apart?

    Why would you say that?

    I'm not a demi-god, would never get on tv in front of 30 million viewers and say things like the president is a racist, or that the government is coming for your guns, or obama isn't a citizen, you know insightful things like that, its totally irresponsible. But i know monocellular creatures such as your think Beck will part the waters of the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln memorial.

    You know there are many people that are just so lost out there. After all the divisive BS Beck has spewed, 13 comes on here and says something like that.
