Al Sharpton Rally Draws Differences With Glenn Beck Rally – A few hundred meters away from the 8/28 Glenn Beck rally, black leaders, including Rev. Al Sharpton, staged a demonstration to protest-against the “misuse” of the message of Martin Luther King by Beck and his supporters. No incidents were reported.

For the Rev. Al Sharpton, heir to the civil rights movement and spokesman of the black community, the Beck and Palin gathering was the opposite of the message of Martin Luther King. “They are an anti-government march on the day when King came to appeal to the government. We can not have both.”

Sharpton handled his annual commemoration of King’s speech in a school nearby. Sharpton rally was called “Reclaim the Dream”, it focused on education and was conducted in the presence of Martin Luther King III, son of the pastor.

Rev. Sharpton did not want to attack Beck and his followers directly. “We came because the dream (King) has not been realized. We have made great progress but we still have a long way to go,” he said.

He said he did not want confrontation with the pro-Beck. “We do not dishonor this day by allowing you to challenge us,” he said to them, then giving this advice to his camp: “Let the line stretch. They already are going to say there were only 2,000 or 3,000 of you here. If people start heckling, smile at them. This ain’t about you — it’s about Dr. King.”

Al Sharpton rally attendance was inferior to 5000 according to early estimates.

  1. The differance was Al”s rally was based upon Race and the plight of Black People. Glenn’s was about God and Nation and the Military .

    This november change will finally occur !

  2. Read the “I have a Dream” speech by Dr. King, Jr.

    Now read the “Reclaim the Dream” flyer.

    Al Sharpton is a complete moron. He and his ilk are attempting to ‘reclaim’ something that never existed.

  3. I watched the Glenn Beck’s rally on FB. It was about America.. black white yellow… It was about the founders of this country coming together… it was about values…
    Why would anyone want to disgrace these values? What has Sharpen done to build bridges? He just creates agitation…. let’s not forget what they did to us …. who was Sharpen talking about… the Native American?

  4. The problem with this ‘memorial’ that the wrong people are conducting it. Race hatred, not race unity seems to be their driving desire. Not all the people, but the so called “leaders”.
    Martin Luther King III said in part: …”We have made great strides, but somehow we’ve got to create a climate so that everybody can do well, not just some.”
    Americans HAVE made such a climate. Anyone who is willing to work hard and sacrifice can do well. While there is still racism, it has been giving way to unity over the past 47 years. It is my prayer that it will continue to lessen as people of all ethnic backgrounds realize that there are those who have a vested interest in continuing racial division. May they soon be shunned as the vermin they are.
    You call Sharpton “heir to the civil rights movement and spokesman of the black community”. I hope you’re wrong. I have listened to him and I heard Dr. King’s speech. Dr. king had class & character; Sharpton is nothing but a shill and a bigot. The black community deserves better.

  5. We all knew that the moment Obama was elected, and the blowback occurred, the libs would call in the race card. MLK was liberal and maybe his policies were idealistic (his call for our nation to stop our defence against commie aggression for one) but his call for us all to judge everyone by character and not skin colour does resonate with all people ans ideologies. If Sharpton and the other leaders of Black America had have the character, they might have a shot at keeping King’s dream
    alive. All I see is the seeds of a civil/race war being sown. Our nation is most likely, doomed.

  6. Sharpton is one of the greatest racisits of our time. His entire life has been one of promoting hatred of whites. He makes his fortune by it.

    Glen McCoy’s cartoon describes it perfectly:

    Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are standing under the Wishing Star and Sharpton says, “Oh Wishing Star, we wish for an end to racial strife and bigotry.”….and “POOF”, they both disappear in a cloud of smoke!

  7. Ideologically, right out of the starting gate, Sarah Palin has MUCH more in common with Dr. King than corruptocrat Al Sharpton; Dr. King was a republican! So was President Lincoln BTW. Don’t go away mad Al – JUST GO AWAY!

    • Republicans have very different views then they did in Lincoln and King’s time. Do your research and you’ll see that their Republican views are more like the current democrat views.

  8. Al Sharpton has never been anymore than a blubbery-loud mouth race baiter. He and Jesse Jackson are such sleazy white hating crooks it’s a disgrace that they claim to represent black Americans. Black Americans deserve so much better! I never heard Martin Luther King sound like these two.

  9. i always find it amazing how Dr Martin L.King jr is reduced to one speech, when he was much more.The same people that profess so much admiration, didn’t see it that way when he was alive. He was vilifed the same way Rev Sharpton is now. Race-baiter,commie,divisive, rebel rouser. This is how the Rev Dr King was viewed in life by the “mainstream” America. History will not be rewritten to make America comfortable,not at the expense of JUSTICE

  10. The so-called Black community does not have an assigned spokesman/woman.Who is the spokesman for the white community? how about the Asian,hispanic,Native community?The so-called majority group does not decide who the leaders are.Do all whites think alike? Marginaliztion.a tool of control.

  11. No Blacks, No women, No Indians ..Do some research into the founding documents of this country and you will understand the systemic malfunction of America.

  12. PEOPLE LOOK, THERE ARE THOSE IN BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES WHO BENEFIT ON KEEPING THIS COUNTRIES CITIZENS DIVIDED. I WOULD NOT PUT IT PAST THEM MAKING COMMENTS ON THIS AND OTHER BLOGS TO KEEP PEOPLE WORKED UP. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT WE ARE ALL AMERICANS AND I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE SEEN SUCH A SENSE OF DIVISION IN THIS COUNTRY. REGARDLESS TO ONE’S CHOICE PERSONALLY OF THIS NATIONS LEADER THROUGH OUR VOTING PROCESS IF IT DID NOT WORK OUT TO ONE’S TASTE WE ALL STILL PULLED TOGETHER TO SUPPORT THE CHOICE MADE BY THE PROCESS THAT WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD.
    THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE NOT EVEN FROM THIS COUNTRY WHO ARE COUNTING ON AMERICANS INABILITY TO CULTURALLY GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER BY PUTTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO POLITICAL AND MEDIA INTITIES TO PUSH AN AGENDA THAT WILL ULTIMATELY BENIFIT THEM WHILE BRINGING THIS COUNTRY DOWN.
    WAKE UP AMERICA THE BIBLE TEACHES US TO PRAY FOR OUR NATIONS LEADER AND IF THEY ARE DOING THINGS WRONG HE WILL ANSWER OUR PRAYERS BUT WE WILL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL AS A NATION WHEN THE COUNTRY IS SO DIVIDED REGARDLESS OF WHO IS IN OFFICE.

  13. It’s silly of Sharpton to say that King was just calling for the government to do things. King was also calling for the government to stop doing certain things, such as discriminating against people because of their race, keeping them out of state universities, keeping them from voting, etc.

    And Sharpton does the cheap rhetorical trick of saying that any conservatives who criticize the government are “anti-government”, similar to anarchists, not just critics of some things that the government does. Of course, the professional journalists at the AP do the same thing.

  14. After WWII, Czechoslovakia had about 15 million people. They decided they wanted to split, and the world let them. The two countries (Slovakia and Czech Republic) are fine now. We have over 250 miliion people who are more differant re race, religion, politics, etc. Why don’t we split? Let all the conservative descendants of white, christian Europeans take one half, and everyone else the other. You must admit that there would be more unity within each of the two new countries.

    • Bravo!! I have been saying this for years.

      Problem” Liberals are PARASITES and feed off their conservative hosts. They would never agree to have to work for a living.

    • Too late………..that theory ended as soon as the slave masters started sneaking out at night and having sex with the women slaves which then created a mix of black and white. Aren’t they also descendants of “white christian Europeans” ????
