Back in August, Glenn Beck had a little rally in Washington, D.C. called “Restoring Honor.” It had something to do with trying to regain our country’s footing after years of being horrifically led astray by President Obama and his socialism (or was it Communism? It doesn’t matter, they’re both bad! Very bad!). There was a whole lot of speech-ifying about bringing this nation back to the heaving bosom of Lady Liberty and her god, God. You see, they were mad as hell (or heaven?) and not going to take it anymore. There also was a very bad video comparing Glenn Beck to Martin Luther King, Jr., followed by a very bad history-in-the-making moment in which Dr. King’s niece, Alveda King, gave a speech yearning for the days before Roe v. Wade and the time when prayer in schools went hand in hand with the Pledge of Allegiance.
Doing what the Left does best (react), Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart will answer with a joint rally of their own. Colbert’s March to Keep Fear Alive Rally and Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity will be held on October 30 in the nation’s God-fearing capital, meaning those attending will essentially be participating in the Coachella of political rallies. For those of us back home, there is an option: the LA edition of the Rally to Restore Sanity will be held at MacArthur Park on October 30 from 9am to 3pm-ish. RSVP to keep fear alive/restore sanity here, and may the force be with you. Always.
