Left Sets Challenge to Beck Rally


The Daily Caller tells us that “labor leaders, liberal religious leaders and the NAACP” have called a rally on the Mall in Washington as a response to the Glenn Beck and Tea Party rally.

The rally is scheduled for October 2.

First reaction?

This is political, and don’t believe for a second the religious business. To the extent there will be “religious leaders” involved it will be the same old, same old. Left-wing types like Jim Wallis who in fact have no mass following to speak of because in fact they have repeatedly presented themselves as politicians and not clergy.

Beck had somewhere in the neighborhood of 500,000 people at his rally. A crowd of solid Americans who were, by all accounts, acting like they were at a church picnic. Wow. Now there’s radical!

What will happen in October? If five people show up, the crowd will be said to have quadrupled Beck’s. And the mainstream media will call it a victory for Obama and the left.

Anything else we need to know?
