    I support their right to free speech and to gather, even though this is clearly an attempt by Fox News (and/or Glenn Beck) to get people to rally and vote Republican. If these people cared so much about our deficits and debts they would have gathered in Washington during the Bush administration in mass. Apparently they were too busy spending their tax cuts.

    How is it clear? The event hasn't happened and no one really even knows what's going to be said....

    True, but I'm willing to bet it'll be the same rhetoric we've been hearing from them since Obama got elected. We'll see I guess.

    Edit:

    Taken from the website http://www.glennbeck.com/828/

    Throughout history America has seen many great leaders and noteworthy citizens change her course. It is through their personal virtues and by their example that we are able to live as a free people. On August 28, come celebrate America by honoring our heroes, our heritage and our future.

    Join the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and many more for this non-political event that pays tribute to America’s service personnel and other upstanding citizens who embody our nation’s founding principles of integrity, truth and honor.

    Our freedom is possible only if we remain virtuous. Help us restore the values that founded this great nation. On August, 28th, come join us in our pledge to restore honor at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.
    I'm sure they'll manage to fit some anti-Obama/Dem/Liberal rhetoric in there somewhere

    I'm willing to bet that it won't be about politics at all.

    I've heard him say about a hundred times that it is non political yet everyone keeps calling it a tea party rally, blah blah blah
    I'm glad you brought this thread back up so I could vent.
    Has anyone been watching MSNBC?
    I can usually handle it but the lies are getting so bad I feel like screaming.
    ED Shultz, Maddow, Mathews etc. have been having a field day. They are saying Glenn is steering people away from the scary black people. That he posted democrats addresses. What's going on?
    It's much worse than normal, the hatred, lies and jokes about this event.
    Hec, MLK's niece is going to be there. No mention of her.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    Oy. MSNBC is saying he's giving out Democrats addresses? Where did they get that?

    I love how people online are saying that Beck is dishonoring MLK's dream when they have absolutely zero clue what is going to be said onstage. Also Alveda King said that her uncle would come to Beck's rally and not Sharpton's counter-rally. What is he countering? Restoring honor? LOL! Okay.......

    I'll reserve my judgments until it happens, but I doubt it will be anything more than a glorified anti Obama/Dems rally.

    p.s. You forgot a poll option for those of us who think Glenn Beck is an idiot and don't care what his latest brain fart is, because he's completely irrelevant.
    No, he's not irrelevent and you know it. Hahahah
