Restoring Honor Rally

Full disclosure: I did not watch the whole thing. I had to run errands this morning and otherwise listened. The usual "hit piece" stuff.

Coincidently, the event has faced criticism for being held on the 47th anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech made by civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Rally critics say the ideology expressed by Beck and other speakers stand in conflict with the spirit of Dr. King’s remarks.

Really? In what way does "Faith, Hope and Charity" (which, from what I heard seemed to be the central point of the rally) stand in conflict with King's remarks?

Race-baiter Al Sharpton: He poked fun at the Beck-organized rally, saying some participants were the same ones who used to call civil rights leaders troublemakers. "The folks who used to criticize us for marching are trying to have a march themselves," he said. He urged his group to be peaceful and not confrontational. "If people start heckling, smile at them," Sharpton said.

Most of the people at this rally would be many years too young to have done what Sharpton claims.

It was not clear how many tea party activists were in the crowd, but the sheer size of the turnout helped demonstrate the size and potential national influence of the movement.

The attempt to make this a TEA Party rally is opinion masquerading as journalism. Clearly there is man agenda in the writing. JounoList is alive and well.
