Glenn Beck’s rally at the Lincoln Memorial took place on August 28 – the anniversary of MLK’s “I have a dream” speech. The Glenn Beck rally was called “Restoring Honor” and it was a call to the US to return to values of the past.
As with pretty much everything that Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin touch, this rally was met with a lot of skepticism and criticism. It is said that the rally was not politically motivated, although there are those who beg to differ.
Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are two familiar faces within the Tea Party movement. The rally was set to benefit a charity which helps our troops, and therefore could not be a political event. Many of our readers who were in attendance at the rally have wrote us and let us know that they did not feel that the rally was political at all.
Tony LaRussa has even made comments that the rally wasn’t political, amid controversy over his attendance to give Albert Pujols his “Hope Award.”
Also present at the rally was Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. You can see her speech here.
