Glenn Beck Rally Attendance: How Many People Were At Restoring Honor Rally? – Tens of thousands of people linked to the right wing of the American political spectrum took over Washington on Saturday for a demonstration dubbed “Restoring Honor Rally.”
The organizer of the event, radio and Fox News host Glenn Beck said that 300,000 to 500,000 people had gathered.
But according to an estimate based on aerial photographs, and CBS-TV only 87,000 supporters were in attendance. The former Republican candidate for Vice-President Sarah Palin, who some say will run in 2012, also addressed the crowd.
The Glen Beck rally took place near the Lincoln Memorial, where the leader of the movement for civil rights Martin Luther King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech August 28, 1963.
The coincidence of dates has angered the black community, who accused “Tea Party” movement (a major component of Saturday’s rally ) of being racist.
For Glenn Beck, who accused Obama of anti-white racism, the coincidence is purely coincidental.
The movement accuses Barack Obama of wanting to turn the United States into a socialist country and frontally opposed his health care reform that passed earlier this year.
The Glenn Beck rally attendance was over 1000000 if you are a fan of Beck, 300000 for the host himself and less than 100000 for science and people not affiliated with any political parties.
