    Isn't civil rights an American issue regardless of race? Don't we have a black President now and what does the color of their skin have to do with civil rights?

    He may not be profiting, but At the bottom of the his website:

    In small print:

    "All contributions made to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) will first be applied to the costs of the Restoring Honor Rally taking place on August 28, 2010. All contributions in excess of these costs will then be retained by the SOWF."

    Restoring Honor - 8.28.10

    Apparently, actually watching the thing/person you're criticizing isn't required.

    (This should be good. )



    MLK would be mortified by the content of this particular rodeo-clown's character.
    If you won't even watch how do you know MLK wouldn't approve?

    You don't plan an event with an ambiguous meaning!

    Face it, Beckie is just makin' this **** up as he goes. This event is about the Teabrains seeming more tolerant and less like a bunch or racist fringe-right a-holes.

    Did Congress urge and encourage and make crap up to get Bush/Cheney/et al to invade and occupy Iraq, or was it the other way around?

    Yeah, the guy's taken a vow of poverty in order to help others; Beck does his rodeo-clown routine for FREE.

    Mmm-hmm..

    The foundation's primary function, according to its Web site, is to provide academic scholarships to the children of special operations soldiers killed in action or training.

    It's not clear how much money the foundation might receive. A footnote on the rally's Web page explains that donations will go first toward the cost of the event. Anything left over will then be kept by the foundation.

    Surviving children of special operations soldiers who die in combat or training are automatically eligible for full post-secondary scholarships through the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, according to the group's 2009 tax return. To date, 160 children of fallen soldiers have graduated from college with help from the foundation.
    Impressive stats. I wonder how much of his own money he's donated to this "fund?" Beyond this, does it not concern any of you Beckies that this douche is using charitable donations to pay for his Glenn Back fan club rally?

    Also, I've asked several times and thus far, not ONE of you Beckerheads has been able to provide an answer. Maybe you could tackle the burning question:

    How, exactly, is Glenn Beck/the rally going to "restore honor to America?" Specifics, please.
