Liberal leaders, union thugs, and leftist media mouthpieces are jealous of Glenn Beck's "Restoring America" rally and are determined to show that they too have the drawing power of a Fox News commentator and radio personality. A Washington D.C. rally is scheduled on October 2
“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.”
I didn't know that I had a corporate sponsor. Maybe Arlene Holt Baker can direct me to my generous benefactor. It would be nice to get reimbursed for my traveling expenses.
The AFL-CIO vice president EXPECTS tens of thousands of union families to show up. That sounds like a threat.
I wonder if they're going to pay their members to make that long trip; or possibly some unemployed stand-ins? The unions are notorious for using non-union personal to protest on their behalf. See below video:
The rally is supposed to be non-political. The Daily Caller reported the following groups that will be attending:
Besides the NAACP, the Oct. 2 rally will be supported and organized by other labor organizations such as the SEIU and the American Federation of Teachers.
And Jim Wallis, a liberal evangelical leader who is CEO of Sojourners, will lend a religious flavor to the event.
“As people of all faiths, backgrounds, beliefs, orientations and heritages, we must move this country forward beyond divisiveness and hate, to rebuild and reclaim our destiny,” Wallis said in a press release put out by the group formed to promote the rally, One Nation Working Together.
I just can't imagine this group of Marxist, self-loathing Americans, and race haters can be non-political. I just can't see that happening.
