Cancel Glenn Beck’s Lincoln Memorial Rally

Is there nothing sacred anymore? Apparently not.

And certainly not the Lincoln Memorial or the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In a slap at both President Lincoln and Dr. King, not to mention the American people, the National Park Service has given Glenn Beck permission to hold a Tea Party rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28 – 47 years to the day after Martin Luther King gave his magnificent “I Have A Dream” speech.

If you ask me, that’s like granting al Qaeda permission to hold a rally on September 11 – at Ground Zero.

What the hell were those bureaucrats at the Park Service thinking?

This has nothing to do with freedom of speech. Glenn Beck has every right to spew his poison on radio, on television, and at every political rally he organizes across the country.

This has to do with recognizing the special significance of some of our most sacred sites – the Jefferson Memorial, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial – and not letting them be used for political circuses – by anybody, of any political persuasion.

Glenn Beck’s August 28 Tea Party rally at the Lincoln Memorial is an abomination. It should be cancelled – immediately.

That’s my parting shot for today.

  1. It’s kinds like Obama canceling the National Day of Prayer, and then praying with Muslims at a National Islamic Prayer Day. It’s kinds like refusing to call Islamic terrorists “Islamic terrorists and then thinking it’s swell to build a mega-mosque right next door to ground zero. It’s kinda like telling our NASA chief to forget about NASA and think more about making Muslims feel good about themselves.

    I could continue, but it would be a waste of bandwidth. And I see you have an ad for the Teamsters at the bottom of this page. CAn you say “hypocrite?” I knew you couldn’t.

  2. Your entire attitude is destroying this free country, being so leftist indoctrinated with socialist views, it makes me sick to think of all the Americans who gave their lives to protect our freedoms and folks like Bill just have to support a society of world order, thinking that the world can’t survive unless a few elitist run the world like czars and kings. The trouble is that socialists can’t handle freedom, thinking for themselves, surviving, they need to know that big brother is taking care of them. They would rather be self centered with their lives , pay everything into the government to have everything taken care of , instead of getting into the trenches and make a difference .
    You know what you can do with all your degrees,narrow mindedness,illogical social order, and self centered glorification.
    When ever all the facts are put on the table it always shows the same,
    you want all this good for everyone, but it ends up always being self serving and the poor, which includes a majority of blacks are left in a cast system , being held at White House Plantation. As long as the story is drummed into their heads that the government will take care of you, vote us in again, and then they are dependent once again that the master will care for them, but in reality they are screwed again for another term.
