The One Nation rally attendance and Glenn Beck Rally attendance is the latest in the political back-and-forth between the Liberals and the Tea Party movement. While Beck’s rally was really a “non-political” event, the One Nation rally was distinctly political in nature.
There were some estimates of Glenn Beck’s rally that point to a crowd of approximately 87,000 people. However, Beck seems to think that about 500,000 people were there.
The One Nation rally attendance estimates peg a crowd of around 200,000. Of course, no one will give an official number to the attendance due to the highly charged political environment.
The Glenn Beck Rally was a rally to restore honor. It was a non political charity event, which benefited a charity which helps our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Despite claims that it wasn’t politically motivated, the rally featured Tea Party faces such as Beck himself and Sarah Palin.
The One Nation rally was a group of hundreds of liberal organizations, labor unions, and the American 99ers Union. They are demanding the changes they voted for such as higher minimum wages, unemployment extensions, and easier access to labor unions.
At the end of the month, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are staging dueling rallies. The Rally to Restore Sanity and the March to Keep Fear Alive are the true Anti-Beck crowds. Although Stewart is respectful of Beck his audience may not hold the same views. The true testament of which group is larger will be the Stewart/Colbert rally attendance.
