Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- Glenn Beck, on his nationally syndicated radio program, May 26:"We are on the right side of history! We are on the side of individual freedoms and liberties and, dammit, we will reclaim the civil rights moment (from Martin Luther King & Minorities). We will take that movement -- because we were the people who did it in the first place." It is Glenn Beck's most audacious stunt yet: This Saturday, in the company of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the National Rifle Association and others, the Fox News Channel host will stand in the sacred shadow not just of the Lincoln Memorial but of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. himself, near the spot where King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech 47 years earlier to the exact day.
Though Beck pledged to keep his rally non-political and non-partisan, his 8-28 rally is steeped in politics. Examples:
. The deeply Conservative "Tea Party Patriots" run by Dick Armey is providing staff, promotion.
. The National Rifle Association sponsoring, promoting the event.
. Beck is telling attendees that, if they want to get involved in politics, they should sign up with the ultra conservative group FreedomWorks.
. Right Wing extremists "Americans for Prosperity" is providing buses to the rally. AFP is owned by David A Koch, Republican oil giant.
. Freedom Works and Dick Armey's Tea Party Patriots are hosting events the day before and after the rally.
. Right Wing extremist and anti Obama zealot Sarah Palin is speaking at the rally.
. GOP Members of Congress Hatch and Cheffetz are backing the event.
. Beck himself is saying he is "Fixing the Capital" and "Reclaiming the Civil Rights Movement." (from MLK, minorities, equal rights and freedom) and is pushing the end to Social Security and other extreme right initiatives.
Every Freedom Loving American should be appalled by what Beck and his right wing zealots are doing -- rallying to END the Civil Rights Movement and Freedom for ALL Americans of all Colors and all Ethnicities and Religions.
