A tale of two rallies

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on August 29, 2010 by judsonwheelerphillips

Hundreds of thousands of people rallied today at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. The liberal media has called it a “controversial” rally. Only liberals would call a patriotic rally, “controversial.” Close to half a million people crowded on the memorial for the event.

Across town, Al Sharpton held a rally, where there were at least ten protestors. Sorry, I had to use media counting standards. The controversy came for this rally because this was the 47th anniversary of the famous Martin Luther King, “I have a dream” speech. Liberals went apoplectic over this. Some how, a conservative rally was going to be disrespectful of Martin Luther King.

The problem with the rally was not that it was going to be disrespectful. The problem is, conservatives were putting on a rally. When liberals put on a rally, we are all expected to fall all over ourselves about it. When conservatives put on a rally, it simply cannot be allowed.

While there were no major disruptions at this event, that is not the norm when liberals do not like a conservative events. I suspect extremely tight security stopped any planned disruptions. Of course, conservatives do not go and disrupt liberal events. Liberals show no such reservations.

Liberals show no such restrain with outrageous actions. Earlier this week, Walter Fauntroy, allegedly a reverend and certainly an idiot, said, “We are going to take on the barbarism of war, the decadence of racism, and the scourge of poverty, that the Ku Klux – I meant to say the Tea Party…. You all forgive me, but I – you have to use them interchangeably.”

Fauntroy was repeatedly elected as DC’s non-voting delegate to congress. The fact he would be repeatedly elected is proof that the District of Columbia should never have representatives in congress or even on the dogcatcher board.

Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, said if he were alive today, he would have been at the Glen Beck rally, not at the AL Sharpton rally. King was murdered 47 years ago, so it is hard to say what he would have done. But forty-one years ago, Martin Luther King said he dreamed of a day where people would be judged by the content of their heart, not the color of their skin. The rally today featured people who believe that. The Sharpton rally across the town featured people who do not.

The contrast could not be more compelling.
