    Beck's Rally

    http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/...atter-of-honor

    Hmmm....I read something else this morning that said Martin Luther King III feels the same way.

    Now why would Sharpton, Jackson etc....have a problem with it?

    Gee, I really wonder.

    Who is the defender of freedom and who is the pandering, loudmouth, partisan hack politician?

    Now, don't get me wrong. I think Beck is a wierdo but what he is doing is honorable and the relatives of MLK Jr. agree.

    It really will depend on the content of the rally. Mind you it may be as game changing as one of Obama's speeches.

    Sharpton and Jackson have a vested interest in sustaining racism in this world. No matter WHAT they say, without racism, they wouldn't have a place in the spotlight anymore.

    Those hypocritical race baiters weren't asked to speak at the rally is probably the deal. It's not important unless they're the leaders you see.
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    For such an "unimportant" and worthless rally, ( as seen by the likes of msnbc....LOL) they seem to be spending an inordinate ammount of valuable airtime talking about it...???
    !! Why would that be?
    They are so green with envy, and know how pathetic their side is, they are making themselves look even more pathetic than usual tonight trying to spin it someway that they can come out not looking as bad as they know they do.....really pathetic, seriously sad. Mr. ED. Wil...bur.........we've been served.......
    Tough times don't last...Tough people do.

    I don't understand what specifically the major new networks disagree with Beck on. What exactly does Beck say and promote that the liberals and the networks disagree with?

    I have listened to Beck a few times when he discusses history and have yet to hear him say something incorrectly about history. And, he is right, history is very important. Something we now seem to ignore in our schools.

    Since Glenn Beck was a morning shock jock for many years he has been able to hone his schtick to a fine art to entrap the gulible. His view of history is jaded to say the least, this weekend he stated that the Washington monument has a scar where work stopped due to the civil war, work was stopped prior to the civil war and resumed quite some time after the war had ended. The reason construction was stopped was a lack of funds due to mismanagement. Read what the park service has to say. http://www.nps.gov/wamo/faqs.htm

    I did not hear Glenn's statement nor did I hear the context in which he made the statement. Even if I assume you are correct how would that particular statement affect his political outlook on any given issue?

    I hope you have a better grasp on HVAC then on history: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washing...t#Construction

    Now re-read your message. Change the name to John Doe. You are trying to discredit whatever he says by your misunderstanding of a trivial fact. Wasn't that a movie, "Meet John Doe"?

    A better question would be: what caused 500,000 people to go to Washington with virtual no media leading up to it?

    500,000 ? Anyway the answere is "a rodeo clown." "Virtually no media" LOL How did you find out?
    How about the little lie he told you guys when Beck said he held Washington's inaugeral speech in his hands when in fact he did not.

    What did I misunderstand? I did not go into the details for the stoppage and resumption of construction whereas GB tried to use the misleading statement for his own benefit. His record as a poor historian stands.

    On Friday’s program Beck asserted that George Washington claimed, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”

    This is a popular bogus Christian nationalist quote.

    The US Library Of Congress has a massive collection of Washington documents that can be searched by word or phrase. Here’s the description of that collection:

    The complete George Washington Papers collection from the Manuscript Division at the Library of Congress consists of approximately 65,000 documents. This is the largest collection of original Washington documents in the world. Document types in the collection as a whole include correspondence, letterbooks, commonplace books, diaries, journals, financial account books, military records, reports, and notes accumulated by Washington from 1741 through 1799.

    A search on the alleged Washington quote, and phrases from within the quote, produces no results.
