from James Edwards,
Glenn Beck’s big rally at the Lincoln Memorial a couple days ago is the talk of the news media and the internet. Liberals are denouncing it, conservatives are walking on air, while tens of millions of people are completely mystified. And with good reason – if Seinfeld was a show about nothing, this massive gathering was a rally about nothing. And while it may have looked impressive, in reality it shows just how impotent and adrift the mainstream conservative movement has become.
Nobody is really sure what it was even about. Beck, who is only famous because he has spent hours a day for the last decade ranting about politics, says it had nothing to do with politics, even though Sarah Palin was the keynote speaker.
It was about “restoring honor” or something, whatever that’s supposed to mean.
Or it was a way of supporting the troops, depending on which day you listened to Beck.
Then it turned into a rally to reclaim the Civil Rights movement, and give it back to the people who Beck swears pioneered the Civil Rights movement, right wing conservatives. Yes, that’s what Beck actually claims to believe. Leave it to Glenn Beck to make white-hating black columnist Leonard Pitts look sane and reasonable.
It also has something do with honoring all those unsung heroes of the American Revolution, the numerous black Founding Fathers, whose existence (until Beck came along to set the record straight) has been covered up by “liberals” who are trying to divide us by race. Yes, Beck actually says this, too.
I didn't watch the thing, but I've seen clips and read enough about it (and knew enough about it's organizers before hand) to know what it would be.
And what it was, was a bizarre neo-Babylonian psycho-babble orgy of confusion and listlessness.
More than that, it really did look like a cross between Jonestown and Wookstock.
It was an exultation and celebration of Marxism and Death.
I have no doubt that if these people get together again, they'll crown the Anti-Christ.
