Glenn Beck made it clear that no signs would be tolerated at Restoring Honor...
Attendees have been asked not to bring political signs or slogans.
Do white people own the legacy of Abraham Lincoln? I don't think they do, and I don't think black people own the legacy of Martin Luther King.
The permit issued for Glenn Beck's rally Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial is one of about 3,000 issued annually by the National Park Service for rallies, cultural events, weddings and photo shoots on the Mall and other Washington area national parks and historic sites.
... About 60 percent of applications are for 'First Amendment activities,' including Beck's rally, which are defined as demonstrations, religious services and events designed to draw a crowd and express an viewpoint, according to federal law.
A spokesman for Beck would not comment on the talk show host's efforts to secure the permit for Saturday's rally.
A $50 application fee is required to host cultural events, photo shoots and weddings at the sites. Event organizers also may be asked to post a bond for staffing and park maintenance costs, the Park Service said.
Six Park Service employees review the applications, processing 15 to 30 a day, and the length of an application process varies depending on the complexity of the event, the agency said. " *
How does Beck explain the choice of date?
He's shrugged it off as a coincidence, ... Beck has said "divine providence" led him to select the date.
Did Sarah Palin just say that MLK's achievements were built on the shoulders of "our brave men and women in uniform"?
The most effective thing us Pinko Librul Terrists can do is (vocally, adamantly, insistently, repeatedly) just not give one iota of a whit of a shit about Glenn Beck George W. Bush. Ignore him into irrelevance.
I've no idea if these plans were scrapped because they were, in terms of self-promotion, deemed to be a bridge too far.
"I didn't understand, really, his theology," Beck a Fox News host, told "Fox News Sunday." "I think that it is much more of a theological question that he is a guy who understands the world through liberation theology, which is oppressor and victim."
Beck described liberation theology, which teaches that salvation for the individual is dependent on salvation for the collective through economic and social justice, as the message that was preached by Obama's ex-pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
"I'm not judging (Obama) for that," he said. "I'm not demonizing it. I disagree with it."
Beck, who is Mormon, said most Christians don't believe in liberation theology.
"That is a direct opposite of what the gospel is talking about," said Beck. "It's Marxism disguised as religion."
According to Beck, the site is intended to give folks a helping hand. “If you are like me,“ Beck said in a statement, “watching the news or reading the paper can be an exercise in exasperation. It's so hard to find a place that helps me make sense of the world I see."
"We want this to be a place where you can find breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions, and engaging videos about the stories that matter most,“ he added.
Perhaps The Daily Caller would have found the interviews more credible if Eric and Chase had dressed as a pimp and a prostitute and then only provided highly edited versions of their interviews.
