This, of course, is causing the Collectivists to go crazy (crazier).
The Rev. Walter Fauntroy, the non-voting delegate who represented the District of Columbia from 1971 to 1991, called on African-Americans to organize a "new coalition of conscience" to rebut the rally scheduled for Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial featuring Fox News pundit Glenn Beck and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
"We are going to take on the barbarism of war, the decadence of racism, and the scourge of poverty, that the Ku Klux -- I meant to say the Tea Party," Fauntroy told a news conference today at the National Press Club. "You all forgive me, but I -- you have to use them interchangeably."No, "Reverend", we won't forgive you. You are a despicable liar and racist. First, this is not a TEA Party event. Second, there is nothing LIKE the KKK about the TEA Party movement. If you wanted to come to a TEA Party event, you would be welcome. I would accompany you, if you could assure me your hate would not cause you to do anything stupid.
"The same people who cut the cables on the night before the march, that we paid $66,000 for a sound system, they cut it," Fauntroy said. "Now from Fox News and elsewhere, they are seeking to turn the world back."
"I don't want you to think I'm angry," Fauntroy said. "[But] when this right-wing conservative exclusionary group comes to highjack our movement, we have got to respond. And I'm looking forward to that Coalition of Conscience, in defense of jobs and freedom for women."See? This man is out of his freaking mind. Or he's simply another gross liar for the Collective. He can't be aware that the TEA Party is very dominantly led by women, and the people in it are fond of their jobs (AND the jobs they create for others in their small businesses), can he?
Or this, from tax-subsidized Collective information organ NPR:
Progressive pundits are assuming that Beck is out to pervert the memory of King, a supposition not outside the realm of possibility...Unless, of course, you ever listened to the man. Beck loves Dr. King.
In other words, his credentials for hosting a rally on the anniversary and location of one of history's most memorable civil rights events are shoddy at best, nonexistent at worst.Irony overload alert...!!! Sacred ground...free speech...tolerance...diversity... Collective hypocricy, at it's finest!
Stoking even more suspicions is how secretive Beck is being. Little is known about the event except that there will be speeches by Beck and Sarah Palin, and attendees are prohibited from bringing signs. The fear, of course, is that it will turn into a pit of hatred a la the health-care town halls. But there may be a glimmer of hope.
On May 28, Beck devoted more than half an hour of his Fox program to celebrating the overlooked historical contributions of forgotten African-American heroes. With the assistance of David Barton, a Christian historian, and Lucas Morel, a politics professor and author of Lincoln's Sacred Effort: Defining Religion's Role in American Self-Government, Beck highlighted the accomplishments of black men like Prince Whipple and James Armistead, former slaves who went on to fight alongside General Lafayette and George Washington in the American Revolution.Actually, Beck has devoted hours of his program to the topic. Another, rather open, secret is that one honored guest at the Restoring Honor rally will be Martin Luther King's niece, Dr. Alveda King, a frequent guest on Beck's program.
NPR went on to note that Beck stuck up for Shirley Sherrod, but attributes that to taking a cheap shot at the NAACP and the Obama regime. It apparently never occurs that what Beck did was show journalistic integrity...from obvious reasons in the case of NPR.
Perhaps our favorite comes from John Avlon, a perfidious little twerp who writes for The Daily Beast; I Have A Nightmare.
Really? EVERYTHING King stood for? Well, here's how Avlon gets to that point;
He identifies Beck and Palin as POPULISTS (omitting that Carter, Clinton and Obama ran as populists).
He identifies George Wallace as a POPULIST (explaining away the fact Wallace was a DEMOCRAT)
Beck, Palin, and Wallace all cited to the Constitution.
Ergo, and ipso fatso...Beck and Palin are EXACTLY like Wallace, and the natural enemies of King.
In contrast [to King and Lincoln], the self-righteous conservative populism that Beck and Palin have pumped up and profited from is predicted on a fundamental vision of division—"real Americans" versus subversive secular socialists; true patriots versus the president. By dividing our country into us against them, sowing the seeds of hate and condemning the concept of a big tent, Beck and Palin represent the opposite tradition in American history as Lincoln and King—they are dividers, not uniters. We can take them at their word: They want to take our country back, not help it move forward.OK, this demands a little truth-telling. King and Lincoln were both men who believed in the Declaration Of Independence and the Constitution. BOTH relied on it, and sought to reconcile terrible contradictions between those documents and their ideals, and American society.
Both Lincoln and King led IMMENSELY divisive campaigns to affect their goals. The VERY LAST thing they wanted and would have accepted was "unity" around the status quo. They BOTH sought to set a clear division between what WAS, and what SHOULD BE.
That is what we who fight the Collective are doing. Like Lincoln and King, we rely on the founding ideals of our nation. Unity with the status quo of the Collective is the LAST thing we want or will accept. And THAT is what's driving the Collective frothing out of their holes.
