I don't know anything about Glenn Beck, so I can't comment on this thread but to say that I absolutely love this quote.

God exists insofar as we believe him to but love exists so long as hate persists.

Anyway, it is interesting to see Dr. King's niece there... Have to wonder what Dr. King would think about this whole thing if he was still here or if he would even support Beck's positioning. Part of me think he's rolling in his grave... But then the other part wants to think differently.

Also CL Jackson was there. I think he with Dr. King when he gave his I have a Dream Speach.

Glenn Beck on his own is great comedy, but the fact that this tool was able to attract and gather ~300,000 people (depending upon who's counting) is scary. There's a lot of delusional mofos out there.

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

Pundits will debate whether the crowd at Glenn Beck's Saturday rally in Washington was the largest in recent political history, but it was certainly among the most impressive.

Mr. Beck is a television host and radio broadcaster with a checkered past and a penchant for incendiary remarks. But if he's judged by the quality of people of all colors that he attracted to the Lincoln Memorial, his stock can't help but rise.

One would not be able to find a more polite crowd at a political convention, certainly not at a professional sporting event, probably not even at an opera. In fact, judging by the behavior of the attendees following the event, you'd have a tough time finding churches in which people display more patience as others make their way to the exits.

This army of well-mannered folks that marched into Washington seemed comprised mainly of people who had once marched in the U.S. Army or other military branch, or at least had a family member who had. Perhaps that's not surprising, given that the event was a fund-raiser for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides scholarships to the children of elite troops killed in the performance of their duty. The day was largely devoted to expressions of gratitude for the sacrifices of U.S. soldiers, for great men of American history like the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and for God.

But it didn't end there. Dave Roever, a Vietnam veteran, offered a closing prayer in which he thanked the Lord for the president and for the Congress. Despite the unpopularity of the latter two, no booing or catcalls could be heard.

Perhaps feeling defensive about how they would be portrayed in media reports, various attendees wore t-shirts noting that they were "Not violent" or "Non-violent." For other participants, there was no need for an explicit message. Relaxed young parents felt comfortable enough to push toddlers in strollers through the crowded areas along the memorial's reflecting pool.

Not only was the rally akin to a "huge church picnic" (in one Journal reporter's description), but one had to wonder if the over-achievers in this crowd actually left the area in better shape than they found it.

After the event, walking from the Lincoln Memorial's reflecting pool through Constitution Gardens, this reporter scanned 360 degrees and could not see a scrap of trash anywhere. Participants and volunteers had collected all their refuse and left it piled neatly in bags around the public garbage cans. Near Constitution Avenue, I did encounter one stray piece of paper—but too old and faded to have been left that day.

Given the huge representation of military families at the event, maybe it's not surprising the grounds were left ship-shape. A principal theme of the day was that attendees should restore the country by making improvements in their own lives—be the change you wish to see in the world, as Gandhi once put it.

Most of the participants were strictly amateurs in the business of activism. For many, it was their first appearance at a public demonstration. Their strikingly mild-mannered nature might inspire even Mr. Beck to acknowledge that in a crowd estimated at 300,000, the craziest person at the event might have been the one with the microphone. While he admits that he's part entertainer and prone to over-the-top comments, his followers appear to be sincerely responding to his message that Americans need to cling to their best traditions. (Mr. Beck's program appears on the Fox News Channel, which is owned by News Corp., which also owns this newspaper.)

It's like going to a RUSH concert and calling the people wearing the Farewell to Kings t-shirt bizarre.

Re: My Thoughts On The Glenn Beck Rally

I think it is "wonderful" that messages of cooperation and restoration are vilified based on who they come from. Maybe that is the real problem with our system. No one wants to hear what the other side has to say...no matter what it is they are saying. Beck may be a donkey but on this day it seemed he tried for the event to be something of true value. Yet so many can't fathom that maybe, just maybe, he a few points here and there we can all agree on. Unity requires listening and discourse people...not out and out dismissal.

Its the Huffington Post....

I hear all the time people talk about how Beck is crazy, that’s he’s a fear monger, he lies, he’s raciest, ect. The hate that he receives is because hes so animated and occasionally goes off on tangents that its extremely easy to take clips from his program and show them on the daily show, msnbc, youtbue while making him look how you want him to look. For most people its inconvenient to watch his show because it comes on at 5pm, so they take the depictions from the clips as face value.


I was hanging out with some people over the weekend in DC and the Glenn Beck rally came up. Everyone started to talk about how crazy he is and stuff. I stayed quite. So this was early in the evening. 2 of the guys talking about how crazy he is turn out to be hard core conservatives, like abolish the federal reserve and federal income taxes are illegal type stuff…. Im just thinking how did you trash Beck a couple hours ago and have these radical ideas???? Im guessing they have only watched selected clips from his show.
