Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Even if you dispute the numbers and think it wasn't "twice as large," it was at least "a hell of a lot more."An aerial photography analysis commissioned by CBS News and carried out by AirPhotosLive.com estimated the crowd at 215,000 people, plus or minus 10%. In comparison, their estimate for the Restoring Honor rally made using the same methods was 87,000 people, plus or minus 9,000.

i'm still waiting for someone to post me a list of how glenn beck is sooo-ooo crazy.

Gee, that sounds like you called me "stupid" but you did it so cutely that I don't think CaptainCourtesy will infract you for it as he did me. That "opinion" you pulled from the blog seems to offend you. That makes sense as you are an admitted liberal and an Oba-supporter. I would say that documenting radicals, that the object of my scorn Obama has grown up with and associated with constantly, goes towards defining him as a political person. If you wish I can list some from my files with brief descriptives of their background and just what they've said and done that makes them notable as of the Marxist/socialist/Communist/anarchist ilk. By ALL his radical influence associates and his agenda since he promised to "fundamentally remake America" it is quite fair to indict his motivations. You see I do not have to prove every little nuance of opinion when the object of my opinion does so for me by his statements, whom he befriends, his behaviors, etc.. Why I almost bet that you didn't know that without the Senate Internal Security Committee which, not surprisingly was eventually abolished by Congressional liberal pukes, we would not know that your Great Leader President Obama‘s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a member of the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA. These congressional panels investigated the CPUSA and Davis himself. The FBI released a 600-page file on Davis‘s communist affiliations, revealing that he had been under surveillance for 19 years.(1) How 'bout that coincidence? DiscoverTheNetworks, my supposed "blog" source by your standard also referenced this FBI file source. Ain't we havin' fun.I don't think this word, "fact", means what you think it means. Your blog sources are what we call "opinions". They don't offer facts, they offer over the top, mindless opinions, with little to nothing to back them up.
Let's look at the opening to your first blog "source":
The Western socialist left detests the United States and its capitalist economic structure, and seeks to facilitate that structure's downfall by any means necessary
This is wrong, it's stupid, and the fact that you use it for a source says everything any one needs to know about the person linking to it.
Do you remember that leftist attorney Lynne Stewart, who represented the ―blind sheik, terrorist cleric Omar Abdel-Rahman, and who told the Marxist Monthly Review magazine that radical Islamists are ―basically forces of national liberation and she emphasized how they could take down the Egyptian government. She, who was convicted and imprisoned for providing illegal support to foreign Islamic terrorists, said:Source:Counter-Intelligent: The Surveillance and Indictment of Lynne Stewart - Monthly ReviewAnd I think that we, as persons who are committed to the liberation of oppressed people, should fasten on the need for self-determination, and allow people who are under the heel of a corrupt and terrifying Egypt—where thousands of people are in prison, and torture and executions are, according to Amnesty International and Middle East Watch, commonplace—to do what they need to do to throw off that oppression.
You see right there I have confirmed for you one example of those "blog" comments not necessarily being "over the top, mindless opinions, with little to nothing to back them up", because I just did that. "mindless"? Ha!That same Lynne Stewart has been mentioned for what she is by Beck in the past and the liberal left derided him for it, but the truth about what and who she is is well-documented. Did you also know that because of the mounting evidence of U.S.-based support for foreign terrorist groups, members of the FBI‘s Joint Terrorism Task Force on September 24, 2010, raided the home and office of Michael Kelly, a member of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), an openly communist group, in the U.S. The Freedom Road Socialist Organization describes itself as a revolutionary socialist and Marxist-Leninist organization in the United States.(2) This reminds me of the FRSO headed up by one Michael Kelly who describes himself as a founding member of Freedom Road Socialist Organization and edits its newspaper, Fight Back!. A bio in my files of 'Mick'(3) says that..." In his capacity as editor he has interviewed many leaders in the peoples struggle at home and abroad, including prominent leaders of the movements for national liberation, like Leila Khalid of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. "The FRSO say..."If a movement weakens imperialism it should be supported. No one wants to live under the shadow of an empire – that's a matter of fair play and justice. Also, whatever weakens the rich and powerful who rule the United States is good for us, the working and oppressed people who live here." Listen..Did you know that there was a gathering with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the Warwick Hotel on September 21, 2010, when the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran was in New York City to attend the annual United Nations General Assembly. I just happen to have a list of participants:
Cynthia McKinney, a former U.S. House of Representatives member from Georgia and the Green Party‘s presidential candidate in 2008;
Poet and activist Amiri Baraka;
MOVE Minister of Information Ramona Africa;
International Action Center co-director Sara Flounders;
Ardeshir and Eleanor Ommani, co-founders of the American-Iranian Friendship Committee;
Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark;
Million Worker March Movement organizer Brenda Stokely;
Shafeah M‘balia of Black Workers for Justice;
Phil Wilayto of Virginia Defenders for Freedom, Justice and Equality;
Larry Holmes of Bail Out the People Movement (not Larry Homes ex-boxer);
Don DeBar of WBAIx.org;
Ryme Katkhouda of the People‘s Media Center;
Michael McPhearson of United for Peace and Justice;
and the Reverend Graylan Hagler.(4)
[sarcasm]Nah! No progressive lefties there.[/sarcasm]
Sort of seems to validate my view, huh! When I post blog content that knee-jerk reaction of your's will get you in trouble every time. Btw, did you even bother to look at the other links since you were so critically dismissive of that FIRST one?
I'll close now with one more little not so public secret:
(5)The FBI destroyed a file on Barack Obama’s grandfather, the man who selected Communist Frank Marshall Davis to be the future president’s mentor during his growing-up years in Hawaii.
“The FBI confirms that a file was maintained on Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham,” states Cliff Kincaid, the journalist who runs the public policy group, America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI). “This is a troubling development in the effort to understand the Marxism that drives Obama’s policies as president today.”
Sorry. DAMN! I know you didn't want to hear about that bad news.
