Liberals are angry that Glenn Beck is "kidnapping" the legacy of Martin Luther King. But Beck's event has nothing to do with issues of race, so they shouldn't fear the loss of their exlclusive right to stomp on America's race nerve.
Have you played the race card today?
Notice how the liberal news media, following the lead of the race baiters, wraps the story in a racial motif? This is a gathering to celebrate the greatness of America!
Throughout history America has seen many great leaders and noteworthy citizens change her course. It is through their personal virtues and by their example that we are able to live as a free people. On August 28, come celebrate America by honoring our heroes, our heritage and our future.
That's the event description from Beck's website. Does it mention MLK? Issues of race? And by the way, the celebration is being held on the Lincoln Memorial. Where are the accusations that Beck is kidnapping Lincoln's legacy?
The event stage will be located on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Several video screens and sound towers will be placed along the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and on the grounds of the Washington Monument.
