Glenn Beckâ€™s â€œRestoring Honorâ€ rally found tens of thousands of people gathered on Saturday at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The theme was for America to stop wandering along in the darkness. The rally seemed harmless enough, but civil rights activists were up in arms with the Tea Party movement.
The activists were not approving of Beckâ€™s choice of the Lincoln Memorial to rally the troops in America. They felt that he should not have picked the site where Martin Luther King Jr. voiced his â€œI Have a Dreamâ€ speech.
Sarah Palin ran for Vice President with John McCain back in 2008. She feels that people are honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., by also showing respect to the troops who fight for this countryâ€™s independence.
Palin was the â€œRestoring Honorâ€ rally marquee speaker. As she entered the stage, the crowd chanted a powerful â€œUSA, USA!â€ She encouraged the â€œpatriotsâ€ by saying, "It is so humbling to get to be here with you today, patriots. You who are motivated and engaged ... and knowing never to retreat."
Beck paced back and forth on the marble steps of the infamous Lincoln Memorial. According to the Huffington Post, he was awed and humbled by the enormous size of the crowd gathering for the rally.
The Fox News host said, â€œFor too long, this country has wandered in darkness.â€ Beck also mentioned that it was time for citizens to â€œconcentrate on the good things in America, the things we have accomplished and the things we can do tomorrow.â€
Overall, Glenn Becksâ€™s â€œRestoring Honorâ€ rally was not overtly political. Though controversial, Glenn Beck's rally was more of a pep rally for America to turn back to its patriotic roots!
