    I suspect it has to do with President Obama's political idol being a Republican who freed the slaves and united the country while Obama himself moves to divide the people and enslave them.

    Not sure, though.

    I suspect "Restoring Honor" has to do with invoking an emotional response in those who are predisposed to buying tickets or otherwise handing over money.

    What's funny to me is on one hand this is an innocent charity event yet the name of the event is charged with partisanship. Your explanation of the name says it all.
    I don't know...I think bowing to foreign leaders, mislabeling the "reset button", constantly apologizing for American exceptionalism...things like that have cost us honor. Generally anything which makes our enemies claim to like us more also causes us to loose honor.

    Re: Will you be protesting the Restoring Honor Rally in D.C. on 8/28?

    Update: The New Black Panthers are threatening to come protest the event.

    Transcript:

    Tommy Christopher: What do you think about the rally that Glenn Beck plans to have on August 28, the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream speech,” at the Lincoln Memorial?…Are you aware of it?

    Malik Zulu Shabazz: I am aware of it, and that Glenn Beck should not be allowed to have this rally. Glenn Beck is a sneaky little devil, and he does sneaky things, and tries to portray that he’s really not the neo-racist that he really is. And for him to go and to secure the Lincoln Memorial on Dr. King’s birthday will meet not only opposition from civil rights leaders, but it’s going to meet direct opposition from the New Black Panther Party.

    Since the Tea Party loves Glenn Beck and will be there, the New Black Panther Party can easily find the Tea Party, right with Glenn Beck. He can bring his Tea Party, and we’ll bring our party, and we’ll see Glenn Beck. Since he wants to go on Fox News, but he doesn’t want to invite us on Fox News, he’s had me on before, I guess he’s got the orders from the top, at Fox, not to have me on…

    Tommy Christopher: Beck had you on before, but not anymore?

    Malik Zulu Shabazz: Beck has had me on before, I’ve been on Sean Hannity about 20 times, he’s under orders not to have me on, Bill O’Reilly’s under orders not to have me on. This is all a conspiracy. I would say a Zionist conspiracy, but you would say “He’s too conspiratorial.”

    But it’s some kind of conspiracy going on, to keep the truth out, and to keep us off the airwaves, to keep talking about us, but not talk to us. So we’ll see Glenn Beck live in person. I don’t think his rally should be allowed to happen.

    Tommy Christopher: Once again, any members that show up, you would advise them to act within the law…

    Malik Zulu Shabazz: I’m going to be there. I want to see him myself. Sneaky little devil.

    He doesn't even know when MLK's birthday is.
    Where's the coverage of this? Can you imagine if this was someone from the tea party making threats to a liberal like Maddow or Olbermann?
    I personally think this is a very scary man whose threats shouldn't be taken lightly. On the other hand I think he is trying to get people to stay home that day. I hope he doesn't succeed and Glenn Becks get together is so huge it can't be ignored.
    O'Reilly had Glenn on the other night discussing Malik's threats. I was really getting pissed at Bill. He was treating it like a joke. I personally don't think it's a joking matter.

    This could go down in history as the first integrated Tea Party event ever. Kudos to Beck for choosing Aug. 28th to get the ball rolling.

    It's not a tea party event. Yes, Glenn welcomed the NBP's to come in a peaceful manner. This rally is to unite Americans. Too bad so many have a problem with what he is trying to do.

    When it comes to Palin and Beck, you can guarantee there will be a lot of hate speech, disguised as so called "patriotism"

    Because Beck does not try to "unite Americans"....it is in his own selfish best interest to continue to spew his garbage and divide America with his outrageous grandstanding. The guy is a cancer on our community.
