In the rush to push Al Sharpton’s gathering as the hive’s official black reaction to the Beck rally, there were voices the mainstream media neglected to mention.
“Glenn Beck’s “Rally to Restore Honor,” set for Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, has stirred controversy because of it’s timing (the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech) and its location (the same spot where King delivered that speech).
While plenty of people are also questioning Beck’s motives, some black conservatives have been outspoken in their support.
Alveda King — Martin Luther King’s niece — will participate in the rally. She recently wrote: “When I join Beck and all gathered at the Lincoln Memorial this weekend, I will talk about my Uncle Martin and the America he envisioned. I will talk about honor and character and sacrifice. I will be joined by those who represent the diversity of the human race.”
