The Comparison

By: Les Carpenter III
Rational Nation USA

Contrast the "Restoring Honor" rally in which Martin Luther King's niece so eloquently spoke to the Reverend Al  Sharpton's " Reclaim the Dream" rally. Aside from the fact Glenn Beck's rally drew a crowed numbering in the hundred of thousand compared to the Sharpton rally of just a few thousand the tone was significantly different.

Beck's "Restoring Honor" was noticeably inclusive while Sharpton's "Reclaim the Dream" was somewhat divisive. Is it any wonder why Alveda King chose to speak at Beck's rally. I am sure the liberal media and progressive politicians are wishing Alveda would fade into the shadows. They may have a long wait.

Here now is the video of Sharpton's address followed by Alveda's. You my readers be the judge.

And now Alveda...

  1. Why was the rally titled "Restoring Honor?" When exactly did America lose her honor? Did Beck or anyone else explain when and how that honor was lost, and who was responsible for it?

    I'd like to understand why the rally was given that name.


  2. I can only speak for myself and my interpretation.

    I believe Beck is trying to restore honor in our government through his interpretation of our founders intent. This includes civil, and or individual rights.

    I found Glenn to be quite conciliatory and rational in his appearance on FOX today with Chris Wallace.

    His obvious strong religious beliefs aside. Beck is sincere and I believe he is guided by his conscience and his belief America can se a beter day.

    MY take. Is it right? Perhaps. Time will tell.

  3. >Why was the rally titled "Restoring Honor?"

    Here is the event description from Glenn's website.

    "Throughout history America has seen many great leaders and noteworthy citizens change her course. It is through their personal virtues and by their example that we are able to live as a free people. On August 28, come celebrate America by honoring our heroes, our heritage and our future.

    "Join the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and many more for this non-political event that pays tribute to America’s service personnel and other upstanding citizens who embody our nation’s founding principles of integrity, truth and honor.

    "Our freedom is possible only if we remain virtuous. Help us restore the values that founded this great nation. On August, 28th, come join us in our pledge to restore honor at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC."
