LOL! Truly the US Elite! Btw. I never hoped as much as now that they get Pujols for Steroids and I hope Larussa is somehow involved. Cardinals are my new hate team in baseball.

I was annoyed as hell when I read they are attending. Its a bit hypocritical that Larussa and Pujols supported the Arizona immigration law when they both have benefited so much from illegal immigration...

I never liked Pujols, something about his gigantic head always bothered me.

^yeah, it's always funny and rich when a guy from the Domenican Republic and a Baseball coach support anti-immigration laws and people. I mean, does Pujols know that if it wasn't for immigration, he would probably be picking selling ice cream in Domenican Republic? Just saying...

I was in Washington to visit my cousin who moved there recently to work at the world bank. I found out about this rally while I was there. So I decided I attend it just to observe the people to see whether what I have been hearing about this so called "movement" is true.

I got there at 1030 when Sarah Palin was making her speech. I would say there was around 150,000 (MAX) people there..(Michelle bachman held her own rally after, she claimed there was one million people) Almost 95% of them were white. That's the very first thing you'd notice.. self- consciousness and the feeling of being an outsider was certainly with me all day.. me and my gf stood out. a few people throughout the rally came up to us and said what we are doing there, I asked them why would u ask that, they all said well u guys kind of stand out.

It was an "apolitical" rally.. although I dont believe for a sec that the organizers behind it truly believed in that. read the new yorker article about who was behind it all. so therefore, there was not many signs, but people wore their political beliefs on their sleeves. I met this Italian journalist there and asked him if I could follow him around while he interviewed people, to just get a sense of the crowd.

almost everyone of them turned quite angry when they heard the name Obama. most of them said they dont believe he is a true American.. almost all of them said they are not sure even if he was born in America... one of them said he doesnt feel he is like them (aka "he is not white"). He went on to say that African Americans can't go up the ranks easily in the American system, so the fact that Obama could, is very suspicious to him....

Every time I tried to press them on what it was that they disagreed on, they just kept saying well he is a socialist, but couldn't for the life of them come up with one single policy that they disagree with.

Almost everyone of them said they want to take their country back.. and how its been taken away from them recently.. and that its not about Dems or Reps.. I asked why they didn't do anything during the Bush admin.. However, I didnt' get one straight answer..

The video that's posted here is a true representation of most of the people I talked to. It's NOT just "a few idiots"... It seemed like a trend.

everyone I talked to there absolutely loved glenn beck, and would follow him no matter what.. they all said they hope for a Beck Palin ticket in 2012

I also asked them about the mosque, and they overwhelmingly were opposed to it, and thought that all Muslims sympathize with the terrorists. They mostly said that they have the right to build it there, but it's not wise.. I immediately asked about how holding this rally on that very day in that very place is very offensive to some... they all immediately said well this is america, and we have rights etc etc.. completely forgetting what they said a sec ago about the mosque.

The saddest part is that they held this pointless rally on the MLK i have a dream speech anniversary, but almost overwhelmingly everyone there was middle age christian whites.

This point was emphasized when the other rally got close to glenn beck rally. You could see on one side the white people in large numbers all starring at the black crowd that was passing them by, and quietly speaking to one another.. You could see the division, the gap, the line physically manifesting itself right there in front of you, That was the most symbolic moment of the whole day for me. It is evident that there are still deep feeling of mistrust between blacks and whites, and characters like Beck try their best to profit from this division while wrapping themselves around the flag and patriotism...

Thank you for the eyewitness account Natural jon!

It's funny how Beck never held any such Rallies during the W days. I am now convinced that he's hoping -- working in fact -- for some sort of people-against-people confrontation in America; and that would not be good for anyone slightly on the brown side of a White person from Alabama.

This part is kind of strange to me.
That wasn't the first thing the asked when they came up to us.. they usually said you guys are here for the rally? and I replied I dont support it, i'm just here to witness. and then they usually asked where are you guys from.. and I was quick to reply Iran, just to see their reaction... they almost all went oh.... (awkward silence)... one of them even said "we'll thats ok" lol... i was like oh thx lol.. I asked them in a very nice way what made them come up and talk to us, some replied because we stand out in the crowd.

Martin Luther King:

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream today!

one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

Glenn Beck:


“this president has exposed himself, I think, as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or white culture.
I’m not saying that he doesn’t like white people. I’m saying he has a problem. He has a, this guy is, I believe, a racist."

I have a dream that white people will continue to control America.

I have a dream that Christian white people will continue to control America.

I have a dream that straight Christian white people will continue to control America.

I have a dream that straight Christian white people who control America will continue to watch FOX News.

I have a dream that straight Christian white people who control America will continue to watch FOX News and believe what I say.

I have a dream that straight Christian white people who control America will continue to watch FOX News and believe what I say and elect Sarah Palin as President of the United States.

I have a dream that straight Christian white people who control America will continue to watch FOX News and believe what I say and elect Sarah Palin as President of the United States so that taxes will be lowered and there will be no government intervention in our lives.

I have a dream that straight, ignorant Christian white men who control America will continue to watch FOX News and believe whatever I say and elect Sarah Palin as President of the United States so that taxes will be eliminated and there will be no government intervention in our lives; that the man who pays my salary, Rupert Murdoch, will never realize that he’s a fool for letting me say all the stupid things I say; that there will be no Mosque within three thousand miles of Ground Zero; that we will build a great wall around America so high that none of those unmentionables from the rest of the world will be able to crawl over it or tunnel under it; that my divorce and substance abuse will not disqualify me from being Sarah Palin’s running mate; that I can continue to fool most of the people all of the time and that I will continue to be paid millions of dollars each year for my TV antics, the books I publish, the questionable products I push, and that these riches of my life will continue forever in spite of my less fortunate viewers who must surely be blessed for their ignorance.

Amen.
