    "Beck is hijacking the imagery and symbolism of August 28 and the Lincoln Memorial to promote an agenda of intolerance," Marc Morial

    Morial said in the phone interview that civil rights leaders believe that "Beck is deliberately trying to poke a stick in our eye, or kick sand in our faces"

    Listening to Harball today, Al Sharpton made similar remarks. He believes Beck should move the rally to another, less controversial day.

    So Sharpton and the National Urban League have a problem with Beck exercising his rights to hold a Restoring Honor Rally on a controversial location, yet find it to be the height of intolerance to even suggest that the Cordoba Center be moved further away from Ground Zero.

    Sounds consistent to me.

    It's the anniversary of the 'I have a dream' speech.

    So the black racists are getting all ansty about Beck hijacking 'their' guy's speech.... despite the fact that MLK would despise the way they have hijacked his 'dream' and made it into a nightmare.

    And, I am struggling to work out why this is in the politics forum. Ohhh, wait, it's cuz the OP is too stupid to know the difference between a politician and a political commentator.

    Apparently, it's the anniversary of the "I have a dream speech"

    It's rather funny, because the Family members of MLK I've seen speak out about it are in favor of it.

    Sharpton is obviously trying to violate Beck's constitutional rights. How dare he imply that whites can't celebrate the message of MLK. Whites fought for civil rights, too!!! I, as a white man, am insulted Sharpton could insinuate a white man can't speak at that location on that day!!

    Nancy Pelosi needs to investigate who is funding Sharpton and the Natioinal Urban League.

    Why don't Sharpton and Beck just screw and get it over with? I can't stand the sexual frustration between the two.
