    I watch this and have never been so afraid for the future of our country. Ignorance and barabarism rule.

    Glenn Beck and the others that appear at his rally are both seditious and treasonous and should be arrested and sent to Guantanamo Bay!

    The religious freedoms that are enshrined in the constitution are mocked and degraded by his sad attempt to establish a Christian Theocracy in America.

    We already are seeing the fruits borne of the Islamic Theocracy in Iran, Al-Qaeda! We do not to experience the same thing in America.

    The Constitution protects us from religous zealots, arrest this opportunistic nutbag!

    The forces of hate pointed toward Beck are incredible. But there is strength in truth and their is nothing the Progressive or CNN can do to destroy Beck other than through an act of violence endorsed by the NAACP, NUl, CNN, Valery Jarrett or other Progressive robots.

    Thank God for Glenn Beck and his commitment to point out our history and the people that made our nation great. He is praising MLK on an almost daily basis. Meanwhile across the way, Al Sharpton is doing his usual best to divide and make a racial thing out of a patriotic event to honor our military and our founders and all who contribute.

    Glen Beck was just spreading the word. For those that mock God and his power I pray for your lost souls.

    Flag-wavers on the right, "civil rights" extortionists on the left.

    All part of the non-funny, anti-joke that is Amerikwa.

  10. Stop the ignorance on the Right

    What an ugly man.....this racist and his followers has the chutzpah to trample on MLK's legacy. And the idiotic idea of "restoring America to what it was before" smells of Germany in the mid 1930's, only this time blacks are the jews.... these teabaggers and reactionary republicans are a dangerous group, and America needs to not only reject them, but also to watch them closely before they turn to violent and incoherent tactics. It's a scary time when these racists react against a black president. Obviously, this is what it's all about.

    You are so right God does have the final word,and he will expose Beck and the rest for whom they really are.Sooner than they think.

  12. thanks, but no thanks

    Here is the irony... Dr. King tried to restore the today's America where regardless color of your skin, we all are born equal, while "Dr. Beck" is trying to set the clock back to inequality. Mr. Beck is not the villain, people who believe in him are the evil ones... Maybe God will see to them through Mr. Beck...

    The loathsome Beck has earned all the criticism and more. He's a liar and hypocrite who doesn't hesitate to "play the race card." And for all his anti-Islamic center rants, he's mighty hypocritical to be so insensitive to those who know MLK was the polar opposite of Beck with his belief in social justice. Beck;s followers are the same clueless sheep who followed the Nazis.

    Seeing a smiling Glenn Beck makes my skin crawl! He is one of the countries greatest con men, and it's a shame that so many people are falling for his fake sincerely and believing what he says as true! I thought that people in this country were smarter than that!

    Why is this on the political ticker – it was a "tent revival of a cult leader".

    What a fraud!

    Was he also back there selling his books, T-shirts, etc to make money off this event for himself? This so-called rally was certainly not about restoring America, It was FOX/Beck publicity stunt that was disgusting in its hypocrisy.

    Beck is NO Christian, he does NOT speak for God as he claims, and he knows NOTHING about American history. Wake up fools – Beck is a con man.

    glen beck is satan him self and now i can see that people are going to get the mark of the beast because they dont have a relationship withthe Lord JesusChrist because if they do they would not go to listen glen beck on his demons they would go and buy a king James bible and read Matthew 24 and verse 24 tell you about the false christ and the false prophet glen beck and i can see those people who goes to listen glen beck line up for the mark of the beast you know why they dont have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ because they are looking to man not the Lord of Host its a shame God help them.

    Glenn Beck puts himself out there as if he were a god. If you just put an l in there you would have his real god – gold – as in Goldline. I can't believe anyone listens to his rants, and believes them. Doesn't anyone think for themselves anymore?

    Beckism/Palinism = McCarthyism. Separation of church and state at all costs. Remember Hitler and his crew of divide and conquor...they, too, had it down to a science.
