Glenn Beck Rally

Glenn Beck Rally, Off to join the locals in a deep laugh and delight in the whole “go to the Green Line” matter, I’m not sure what to say about “this weekend Glenn Beck sings a song to myself “rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Mysteriously, people just seemed terribly concerned about the way they conducted the same day of the march Martin Luther King’s historic In Washington this week, although this has been known from the start. I never imagined that this was necessary, but outside of the possibility that you are confused about whether Glenn Beck and Martin Luther King are the same person, this is a thorough investigation show that this Media Matters not.
As Dave Weigel noted, could be more valuable to be bothered by “the way bs [Beck] ‘s sell” the rally. Not that this breaks any of the established traditions of Beck! But as Ken Vogel Politico reported, what is noteworthy is that the act of fameball Beck is starting to irritate some of his nominal allies, to encourage skepticism of his motives:
The rally and Beck’s increasing political forays have made him an object of suspicion among some conservatives, even as they acknowledge his influence and potential importance as a spokesman.
“The conservative movement is still split on Glenn and whether he’s doing it for himself or doing it for the movement,” said Erick Erickson, founder of the influential conservative blog Red State. Erickson said he’s offered his assistance to Team Beck in his political exploits, which in the past year have included a high-profile battle with the White House, the creation of a network of perhaps hundreds of political groups, and the keynote speech at a major conservative political conference. “Until that question is resolved, I think you’re going to see some groups hesitant to go all in with him.”
Some tea party leaders have rejected Beck’s requests to help with the rally because of concern over his inflammatory rhetoric and fear that he was seeking to leverage their organizational know-how and grass-roots credibility for his own financial benefit, providing little in return.
“They wouldn’t even give us a booth,” said a leader of a tea party-related group that rejected Beck’s entreaties. “I resented their presumption that a relatively small organization like ours would use our connections to promote an event where Glenn Beck and FreedomWorks are featured, and we get no recognition at all. No thanks.”
Well, wildly melodramatic Beck promotional video of the race, full of scamflackery nutlog Goldline and comparisons to Rosa Parks, the Wright brothers, and landing on the moon, will not do anything to assuage the skepticism that emerging:
