    Remember, God has the final word, not Glenn Beck. Don't hate them, just pray for them because we all must answer to a higher being.

    Is there a place where he can take a cold shower after the twit finishes her speech. The look on his face when he looks at that woman is comical and disgusting. I bet he fantasizes about her dancing around some pole.
    Then again . . . . . maybe that is all she is good for.

    This could be the start of a Palin/Beck run on 2012. These two hot conservatives could be the ones that topple Pres. Obama at the next presidential election. Only then will we get this country back to where the real americans want , that is peace and prosperity for everyone.

    Remember it was Beck that defended Shirley Sherrod against the WH.'s firing of her.

    Glenn Beck said this is not a political rally. However, there are anti-Obama, and hateful signs everywhere. This should be a day of unity, not divisive. Shame on you Glenn Beck, your agenda is obvious, and selfish. My husbands parents were civil rights activiist who were assasinated in 1964. Your "gathering" is an insult to the true heroes who marched, gathered, and literaly put their lives on the line. The Beck poitical/hateful gathering makes me feel ashamed for America.

    Glenn Beck is like that annoying kid at the playground who's constantly saying: "Hey look at me, look what I can do, look at me!"

    If we just ignore him, he'll go home. If we keep watching him, he'll keep asking for more attention...

    Was Beck working on faking tears like he did for the magazine?

    Glenn Beck's "I Have a Scheme" rally.

    Just ignore him. His head is way too big. He is a greedy attention-starved corporate stooge who's just too lazy to go through actual priest training so he can cash in on televangelism. He is nothing but a Pat Robertson wanna-be.

    Wow it surprised me that CNN and MSNBC covered this as well as Fox. That's great we are after all one nation. It is good to see so many people from all walks of life come together and rally for the return of honor. No matter your race, religion, or political view we are Americans first and the greatest Nation on Earth.

    USA lost its face, credibility and influence the world over during the Bush era of infamy.
    The likes of Glenn Beck and the pack at Fox Propaganda Channel was in the forefront spreading lies, half truths and dishing out propaganda resulting in us landing in a disaster of their making-Iraq & then Afghanistan.

    Its such a farcs when this intellectually challenged propagandist Glenn Beck calls for 'taking back honor'.
    That the likes of Sarah Palin & the Tea Partiers are the back bone of this movement with undertones of racism, intolerance, hate & now religious persecution, speaks a lot for this rally.
    Wake up America.

    God has no respect of person. He could care less if you are conservative, libeal, democarat, nor republican. As a matter of fact I suspect that he prefer you not to be any of them and just work at living the word of his good book. All of this stuff is foolishness in the name of God.

    How can beck restore something that he would not recognize if he were to see it. He is without honor. He spouts trash that he knows is not true, and he does that just to make more money.

    Does the man remind you of an up and coming little Nazi, rallying the disenchanted and the mean spirited as if he's the second coming of Christ? In the first place, no supposed God is going to improve zilch in this country or the world. This "false prophet" counts on the ignorant, the fearful, and the intellectually challenged to follow him around like dogs on a leash while he trashes anything and everything that has to do with the betterment of ALL the people in this country. Like Hitler, when he rallied the Germans to his side, this man is dangerous and should be vigorously opposed at every turn.

    Not only is he distorting Dr. King's image and the history of Civil Rights for political gain, he is also using God and religion for political gain. And of course, if you dare disagree with him, you must be an anti-religious liberal bigot.
    Since Obama got elected this person has delivered tirade after tirade against every democrat, and especially Obama, while making excuses for republicans. Beck has likened everyone who disagrees with him to Hitler and Stalin. He accuses his opponents of fearmongering while telling us that if we don't vote for his favorite candidates we are 'writing the last chapters of our history.' And at this 'non-political' rally he immediatelly begins by trashing government. Sure, he doesn't mention names, but his message is still clear.
    Beck is a liar and a hypocrite!

    You can't restore what you never had beck.

    As long as you believe as Beck does, you are an American!
    You need a shop vac to pick up the diarhea spewing from their mouths!

    Why can’t these folks just be honest and admit: People who admire and listen to Glen Beck, Rush Limbough, Sarah Palin, John Boehner, Michele Bachmann, Ben Quayle, Sharron Angle (to name just a few of the many people the GOP seems to be made up of these days) do so because they hate President Obama and see them as the opposite of him. He makes them feel inferior and they make them feel good about being underachievers.

    Very well said, anagram_kid!!!!
