When did this become Glenn Beck’s rally?
Is it because the far left, apparently unaccustomed to taking to the streets without first receiving a telephone call with direct marching orders (and in recent incidences, a call followed by a paycheck) from OFA, ACORN, HCAN, their unions or the like, still can’t come to terms with the fact that normal everyday Americans have the ability, means and desire to act of their own free will? Is the only way they can make sense of it to point to some perceived enemy of theirs and say “he’s the one who’s making them do it”, as though Beck is some sort of conservative pied piper? Frankly, I think it’s amazing how much power and influence they ascribe to a man who they roundly consider to be little more than a buffoon in clown shoes.
Or – and this is where my money lies – is it simply another pathetically weak attempt to marginalize a growing movement that’s making them increasingly uneasy?
Not that a single member of the far left will listen, but here it is for the record – we’re not here because Glenn Beck told us to be here, you mental midgets, we’re here because we want and need to be. We’re here because the far left of the democrat party has given us no choice but to be here. If Glenn Beck didn’t exist, we’d still be here, just as active, vocal, determined and committed.
We didn’t join him, he joined us.
And let’s be really honest for a second – you’ll never openly admit it, but deep down you really do know it’s not about Beck.
On calling it a “racist white movement”:
It’s a shame – and I mean that with sincerity and a great deal of sadness - that such a large percentage of black Americans have been programmed to believe by their so-called ‘leaders’ like Jackson, Sharpton, the radical churches, and even (especially) ‘do-gooders’ like Ted Kennedy – quite possibly the single greatest enemy that black America has ever had – that they aren’t good enough or smart enough to be self-sufficient, and that the only way up and out for them is through entitlement programs, welfare, affirmative action, and now, socialized medicine and the idea that everyone’s entitled not just to equal opportunity, but equal outcome as well. 45 years of this unconscionable lie and the democratic policies it embraces has led to the massive decimation of the black community that we see today.
It is no surprise then that we don’t see more black faces at the rallies. There are some…I wish there were more. Three of the most popular speakers at the DC rally were black – Lloyd marcus (OK, not a speaker per se, but his re-lyricizing of New York, New Yorky, schlocky as it was, got the crowd going), the Rev C.L. Bryant (whose speech was probably the most passionate and motivating of the day and whom the crowd went -nuts- for. Video as soon as I can find one), and Angela McGlowan, who spoke of the damage black politicians and ‘leaders’ are doing do race relations in our country.
Those who call us racists are being either willfully ignorant, blatantly dishonest, or both about what’s going on here. They lash out because they have nothing else; the facts are against them, and to engage in a substantive argument would expose them as the vicious, spineless racist bigots they themselves truly are.
The far left wants you to believe that black Americans are excluded from our events, that we simply don’t want them there. The fact is, nothing can be further from the truth. If you take an honest look at who spends an inordinate amount of time separating people out by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual proclivities, etc..and I mean an honest look, you’ll quickly come to realize how hypocritical and completely full of shit the left has been and continues to be on this issue. The left has a vested interest in keeping the people of this nation divided – that’s what gives them their power – , and throwing the race/gender/ethnicity/ card out there at every opportunity continues to be one of their most effective methods of perpetuating that division.
As I’ve written here before, we welcome everyone:

I’ve been reading about how the left is starting to play the race card with regards to the tea party protests cropping up all across America. Michelle Malkin reports on how sensationalist race baiter Geraldo Rivera commented on how he’s “never seen any people of color” at the tea parties.
To those who choose to believe Geraldo and those like him, I ask you to consider just one simple thing – who, specifically, is telling “people of color” that they’re not welcome at these protests? If you’re honest with yourself with the answer, you may just start to realize how you are being played by the race hustlers.
Here’s a fact: ALL Americans are welcome at these tea party protests, as well as to any other organized or disorganized gatherings we may have in the future.
Unlike the left, we do not care what race, creed or color our fellow Americans are. We do not need to ’stock’ our protests with ringers in order to play or pander to any particular demographic. We are protesting because we care about the future of America for ALL Americans, not just for some little select group.
Unlike the left, we are honest about who we are, what we’re doing, and why we’re doing it.
Don’t let the race hustlers like Geraldo and Acorn con you on this one – this isn’t a ‘white’ thing, it’s an ‘everyone’ thing. The current level, direction, and sheer wastefulness of government spending is an outrage that should be shared by all Americans. And believe me, when the bill comes due for the current administration’s wild, reckless spending spree, every last one of us, whether black, white, Christian, Muslim, conservative, liberal, etc… will be asked forced to ante up.
Please, come join us. We’d love to have you.
The black men, women and children at yesterday’s rally were, to us, just men, women, and children. They were not ‘African-Americans”, they were not ‘black Americans’, they were just Americans, and I was honored to stand with them.
