Original message Beck/Palin rally permit approved - 300,000 expected


Edited on Thu Aug-19-10 07:31 PM by RamboLiberal
The National Park Service said Thursday that it has approved the permit for the Aug. 28 Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin rally at the Lincoln Memorial.

Park Service spokesman Bill Line said the permit indicates that organizers expect 300,000 people to attend. Line said it is a "fixed rally" without a march. The rally will go from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The park service is processing a permit request for a counter demonstration and rally by the Rev. Al Sharpton on the same day along Independence Avenue, south of the memorial. Line said the Sharpton rally organizers list 3,000 expected attendees on their permit request.

I'm curious what Sharpton is going to be "counter-protesting". Just what message of Beck's is he planning on saying is wrong?

They typically don't protest what Beck actually says, they attack him personally.

Rambo has a dissenter it seems.

Imagine that. I wonder how long that person will last in their arena of "free speech". Heh.

Beck will be talking about his love of America, The Constitution and people working to keep the country a place for freedom loving people to be proud of. Sharpton will take the other side.

Beck said tonight that signs are not allowed and that Palin's role will be minimal. She's not making a speech but introducing soldiers.


Line said the Sharpton rally organizers list 3,000 expected attendees on their permit request.


If he gets 300 I'll be surprised. And no mention of the Black Panthers who've said they'll be there?

With two rallies planned for that day, my guess is that the DC cops and the Park Service people are both praying for severe thunderstorms. Nothing political on their part, just wanting to avoid the hassle of crowds, especially if the two crowds should meet at some point.

I wonder if any media outlet other than FOX will cover the Beck rally. Should be an interesting news day.

I think he's not happy that it's at the Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of the MLK "I Have a Dream" speech there.

He needs to get over himself. This isn't a white thing, all are welcome.

Why is it funny?Ignore doble half the time. His pretension arrives on the board 20 minutes before his first post.

His lack of creativity flows after Doble lights up a doobie.
