    It seems to me that the US Constution supports right of assembly (in the First Amendment) and whatever message is being sent, which appears at face value to be harmless enough. is certainly allowed and encouraged..
    Was you posting for me to reply or filmfestguy?

    If it was me please point out anywhere in this thread that is have been against this rally.The dots that i have connected seems to point at a nudge by Fox/newscorps and the obvious bias of Fox for the republican party.

    If Sharpton and Beck were smart, they would've gotten together before the rallies and exchanged, say, a thousand of Sharpton's blacks for a thousand of Beck's whites.
    Would've made em both look better, and derailed these "token" arguments.

    Well, you're sorta right. She's part of a group called Project Prevention that gives $200 dollars to drug addicts if they volunteer to use long term birth control, or to be sterilized. It's creepy, to say the least, but I don't get how Project prevention is, "targetting black and minority women". Unless, of course, you're making the claim that all drug addicts are minority females.

    As I said in two other threads: as long as there is Liberalism, there will be racism.

    If it's apolitical in nature, why weren't speakers of varying political stripes invited?

    Further, if it's apolitical in nature, why are there already fights about the numbers in attendance? If it were apolitical, then I'd think the size of the crowd would be irrelevant.

    When Project Prevention puts up billboards that say "Don't let pregnancy get in the way of your crack habit" only in minority neighborhoods then that would suggest that they are the ones claiming that all drug addicts are minority females. And Project Preventions founder, Barbara Harris calling them "dogs in heat" and Schellingers inflammatory rhetoric using the "N" word would seem to validate your fallacious logic that all conservatives support eugenics and are therefore Nazi's.

    My apologies, DonC

    If there was a "nudge" by Fox/newscorps, where is the problem?

    Do you feel the rest of the media, apart from Fox News, is unbiased?

    You must be beside yourself with outrage that Planned Parenthood only builds abortion clinics near minority neighborhoods.

    Excellent point!

    Glenn and the Beckians crapping on the memory of great men has everything to do with politics.

    It's callled bandwagon propaganda--trying to associate yourself with an already accepted movement and/or idea. Beck was trying to associate the Teabrains with the Civil Rights Movement... but, alas, it was painfully obvious and despicable, so he changed his tone and quickly made up a new stated 'purpose' for the event.


    'Restoring Honor' wtf is that? Meaningless drivel.

    Conservative
    Well, wouldn't you think that Fox News who you claim gave over a million dollars to the Tea Party would have protected their investment by covering the Rally?
    I didnít say it was for the tea party. It was for the republican governors association.


    Doesn't appear to be the bias that you and others seem to believe.
    Maybe, maybe not. It could be a lamea** attempt at getting the nutters pissed off and getting out the vote.Thats what the Conservatives are good at. Not any ideas, just keep the pot boiling and keep the base brainwashed and uninformed.
