Me tooism has infected the left now that they were made to feel like eunuchs after the success of the non-partisan, non-poitical Glenn Beck “Restoring Honor” Rally, which they apparently feel very threatened by. So they’re holding their own rally on October 2.
Labor leaders, liberal religious leaders and the NAACP will hold a rally on the National Mall on October 2, one month before the fall midterm elections, in an attempt to show they too have political clout and momentum in response to last Saturday’s massive gathering of Tea Party types led by Fox News host Glenn Beck.
“The AFL-CIO is determined that the Tea Party and its corporate backers are not going to get the final word,” said AFL-CIO executive vice president Arlene Holt Baker. “We will expect tens of thousands of union families to come.”
“We are fueled by hope and not hate,” Holt Baker said.
Oooh, “We’re not about hate!” That’s news to the people who’ve been beaten or assaulted by Union thugs. Since Beck’s rally had nothing to do with hate at all, and wasn’t political, this gatheing of political ideologues who are starting off with a false premise does not augur well.
They are trying to rally their troops to endorse more dependence on the state and radical statist enablers. The big difference is Beck asked people to come to his thing. They will be telling, aka encouraging >koff<, their people to go. And we'll see how many they actually get. Beck had many more months to promote his gathering on his popular TV show. They will be trying to harangue people to go to theirs and they will bus in as many as they can round up to make it look big. I suspect Beck's rally will come off looking better. Just a hunch.
