Glenn Beck is not Martin Luther King

Enlaces patrocinados

August 28th is an important day in American history. On that day, forty-seven years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream Speech” at the Lincoln Memorial. His message gave voice to the voiceless and his vision promoted a just, equal, diverse and compassionate country.

This year, a very different message is going to be spread from the very ground on which King once stood. Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin will hold a rally at the Lincoln Memorial.

The racist, raging and hate-filled tenor of Beck, Palin and the Tea Party movement is in direct contrast to the noble vision of Dr. King. We cannot sit idly by and let King’s vision and legacy be hijacked for political purposes.

Dr. King once declared that “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”.

Brave New Foundation, Alternet, Credo, Celebrate the Dream, Campaign for America’s Future, Media Matters for America, True Majority, PowerPAC and Progress Now are joining forces to protect Dr. King’s legacy.

Yours,

Robert Greenwald and the Brave New Foundation team

  4. QUOTE OF THE DAY:
    “I’m wondering if those who support that so-called Tea Party Movement really know where Republicans are leading them? It seems like the Tea Party rank & file are being USED by a bunch of vain, self-serving, evil, power mad, greed stricken, K-Street Con Artists. Paid for by wealthy silver spoon trust fund babies who want to turn the American PEOPLE into peasants. The scum of the earth who hide their hideous faces by using Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin as spokespersons. SUCKERS!

    READ: (“Covert Operations, the Billionaire Koch Brothers who are waging war against Obama” by Jane Mayer in the New Yorker

    Just look at their agenda items. It‘s like wet dream for Ken Lay, Tom Delay, Newt Gingrich or Jack Abramoff:
    1) Repeal Health Insurance Reform
    2) Privatize Social Security or abolish it.
    3) End Medicare
    4) Extend Bush Tax Cuts for wealthy and Big Oil
    5) Repeal Wall Street reform
    6) Protect all those responsible for Gulf oil disaster and future environmental catastrophes
    7) Abolish or cut funding to Department of Education
    8) Abolish Dept. of Energy
    9) Abolish Environmental Protection Agency
    10) Repeal 17th Amendment
    11) Rewrite Bible and school textbooks,
    12) Replace JESUS with Glenn Beck, Frank Church with Joe McCarthy…
    13) After USA is destroyed by Republican Party low grade thought processes, BLAME Democrats/Liberals
    14) be flunkies, soldiers and slaves for silver spoon trust fund babies like George W. Bush, Saudi Prince Bandar and the Koch Bros.

    REALITY NOW! What leadership, character or morals have Republicans displayed since Obama was sworn in? NO solutions, NO rational plans, clear agendas or common sense policy… JUST Sarah Palin/Glenn Beck groupies parroting talking points! (I heard rumors someone in the Palin entourage is smuggling meth/coke on the tour charter flights)

    COME ON, are you right-wing wackos #*~/‘n INSANE? Am I missing something here but didn’t Conservatives just have 8 YEARS of Bush/Cheney and Republican controlled Congress (1994-2006) to put their warped ideology into practice? AND IT ALMOST DESTROYED THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH!

    The American PEOPLE must ORGANIZE… NOW, to get rid of the Corporate Conservative propagandists before they work the rightwing nutcases into a murderous, Civil War type frenzy. Limbaugh, Beck, Krystol, Hannity, Palin, etc must be stopped because there’s too many stupid, uneducated weak-minded Americans who fall for their crazy BS!

    Conservative clones/spokespersons/pundits to use hate speech, racist attitudes, bold-faced lies, fear mongering, psychological warfare, warped interpretations of the Bible and other textbook forms of bias persuasion to create a cult of right-wing dolts.

    And don’t give me that line about Conservatives deserve the rights or freedoms to spread their vile propaganda. THEY’RE DESTROYING THE NATION! The rich guys who own the news media might as well give national broadcast air time to Al Qaeda… I mean for all the BAD Republicans have done for the last 3 decades+.

    Waste, fraud, abuse, scandal, sexual deviancy, corruption, lies, incompetence, job outsourcing, off-shore tax evasion, union busting, reckless economics, welfare for the rich, deregulation, war profiteering, Constitutional violations AND a Corporate Crime Wave of epic proportions…. The WORST looting of a nation’s wealth and resources in the history of MANKIND!

    Where was the Tea Party anger THEN? Ya #*~/’n ignorant hypocrites.

    But you want Democrats/Progressives to believe if only Conservatism had one more chance it can work? The very definition of insanity, isn’t IT? Over and over AGAIN! Just separate yourselves from Bush/Cheney… bull$#!~ MISINFORMED people into believing they’re part of a NEW Conservative Movement.

    In OTHER WORDS Republican Party talking points are based on the ignorance of their constituents. They revise history and LIE because they CAN… because morons who vote for Republicans DON’T KNOW THEIR OWN HISTORY! This ain’t NO Tea Party… it’s a damn CLASS WAR!
