Man, I was listening on the news yesterday about how the Left is disappointed in the Right on their views of the Community Center/Mosque near ground zero, yet find it disheartening that Glenn Beck wishes to hold his rally where Martin Luther King, Jr. held his most (or one of his most) famous speech, and how that's hallow ground, and all.
Oh, I smell hypocrisy!
Hmm, that's not really comparing apples to oranges, but maybe comparing Granny Smiths to Red Delicious..es? Anyway, nobody is saying that people can't be uncomfortable or disappointed that an Islamic community center there. That's freedom of religion, just like Beck's speech is freedom of...well...speech. The difference is Beck's attitude through this whole thing. The people trying to build a community center just want a place to have a community center, while Glenn Beck is actively striving to be the next Martin Luther King Jr. Hell, he's been talking about how he's going to take back the civil rights movement, and how "we" are the ones that started it. He didn't mention, when he first announced this speech, that it had anything to do with MLK. In fact, he came out later and said "Someone told me that that exact day and that exact place is where Martin Luther King Jr. held his "I Have a Dream" speech. I was flabbergasted, I had no idea! What a surprise! But you know, I AM a lot like Martin Luther King. I have a dream too."
You can't help but facepalm at the absurdity of this man. I mean, have you watched him recently? He's saying that if he's killed, we'll know who did it. And by that he meant, apparently, that he blames EVERYONE who is progressive or liberal for his "assassination". In fact, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he faked his own death at this thing. Hell, I'd only be half surprised if he hired someone to kill him, just to incite his followers to violence against the 'progressives'. The man is insane, and his hubris in comparing himself to MLK Jr. is what people dislike.
