    I wonder if we can agree to set aside bitter partisanship and ideology and just celebrate our great American heritage in a "A Rally to Restore Honor"?

    The purpose of the event is advertised thusly:

    If not, I wonder if we can discuss some of the themes that will be presented at the rally? The liberal blogs are being pretty critical and disdainful of the gathering.

    Dr. Alveda King – the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., – explains why she's speaking at the Glenn Beck 8/28 rally in Washington this Saturday.

    to celebrate it, one would have to think it isn't a load of bull. sorry honey. that isn't 'bitter partisanship', it is a reflection of the person who is doing this and the truly questionable motivation for it... not to mention the apparent dishonesty in him picking this place and this date.

    i'm sorry... i'll leave now. :(

    I don't think many people will understand it. it doesnt matter how non-political it is. The people who don't like Glenn are going to find excuses to dismiss this. It's a shame though. We live in a world where integrity and honesty are desperately needed.

    I agree with you. Question though, do you believe Beck has integrity and honesty?

    Lots of rallies are held at the Lincoln Memorial. Why not pick it? Who died and appointed you - or anyone else - in charge of what rallies are held there? Is it that, because MLK just happened to speak there - that the 'left' (who have the utter arrogance to claim MLK) think it's 'their' spot? And as for the date - who knew? It's the 47th anniversary - not the 50th or any other landmark date. According to those who know, Beck didn't pick it deliberately - it just happened that way.... I assume you will doubt his honesty on that. Truthfully, no one other than Beck can prove that bit anyway.

    You know what I hate about this whole thing. The people who spread the most hate, will be the ones there trying to "restore honor". Sorry, but I think this is a joke.

    Much more than many people, yes. Is he perfect? no. But that's a human issue.

    :lol: If you believe that, I got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. It just so happens as well he's having King's niece on his show leading up to this event too.
