    I was there. It was incredible. Beck's words of love and tolerance and peace seems to be more like King's words than Sharpton's anger and intolerance message. If King were alive today he would have chosen Beck's rally.

    Wow that's a huge gathering. I think it is great that it wasn't political and served a worthy cause as well. It would have been great if Rev. Sharpton had of joined and participated in this American rally instead of attacking it and using divisive rhetoric. We are Americans first and foremost. I think it's great that politics were put aside to support our troops this way as well as reminding us the importance of honor. I really wish Rev. Sharpton had chose to participate. It would have been good fo the country and continued our progress further.

    I too would like to restore American Honor. We lost our Honor when we invaded a country that did us no harm and was capable of doing any harm. We lost our Honor when a sitting Vice-President committed treason by revealing the identity of a CIA operative in retaliation for an article her husband had written. We lost our Honor at Abu-Graib and Guantanamo Bay where we tortured people. We lost our Honor when we spied on Americans and held some in solitary confinement without charges being filed for years. Yes, let us restore our Honor by jailing the felons of the previous administration.

    How does a truly sick man gain so much clout....and look how easily the gullible and uninformed fall into line. Truly frightening how simple minded people keep falling under the spell of opportunist, hate-mongers!

    Restoring honor to America?

    The previous Administration claimed to have a direct line to God.. Bush was doing the Lords work when Pearle, Wolfowitz, CHENNEY, RUMSFELD, launched their "War for oil" (even John McCain admitted as much). America lost just about every ounce of honor it had during that Administration.

    How painfully ignorant are these Beck and Palin followers? They can't even remember the first 8 years of this decade when Bush Co. turned us all over to the money changers. Then again, they pretty much have missed the TRUTH of the past 15 years because they're constantly glued to FOX News.

    Ignorance is bliss, for the ignorant, and miserable for the rest of us who actually value truth and justice.

    Beck called Obama a racist and a socialist. Obama is neither. I do no respect Glenn Beck because he is a liar who relies on causing division in his daily actions in order to make money. His words today are a mockery because his own daily actions of stoking division goes against what he claims the goal of today was. Beck is a divider, not a uniter, no one can listen to him and deny that.

    are they talking about restoring the country to when
    the Republicans controlled the White House and

    As in, like "the Bush Years"?

    I, for one, don't want to be "restored" if that is what they

    The worst years in this country's history don't need to be
    re-visited. Ask anyone outside of the US what they thought
    about Mr. Bush and co.

    "Restoring Honor"--what the heck does that mean? when will these phony conservatives come up with solutions instead of just sound bytes? They want honor? Welcome the the poor, help the needy like Jesus did and keep religion out of government like our founding fathers wanted.

    Aren't these the same phony conservatives who supported the Patriot Act and other measures approved by Bush and the phony conservative Republicans and Beck to authorize the Government to spy on us? Interesting...these Tribe of European Americans sure have a short memory.

    Whites, whites, whites... An Oriental man? Oh, a reporter...
    Whites, whites, whites... So besides MLK's niece (and his portrait) who else was there (not for job purposes as the reporters or cops) and was not white?

    CNN reporter calls these AMERICANS the "superbowl for wingnuts". Your reporter is a disgrace and you are turning into Keith Olberliar.

    Ah, another million moron march. These folks are being played by beck, gold line and lobbyists groups like freedom works – they're playin' them like dupes. All the while these are the folks that are "stealling their liberties and freedoms" – but they don't mind, because beck, the dramatic con man is behind it all. Lemmings and dupes – fertile ground for hacks like beck.
