Is Beck's Washington rally about the conservative cause or about Beck?

Even as he prepares for a Saturday rally that could cement his status as an unparalleled force in conservative politics, Glenn Beck is facing quiet but persistent questions from some on the right about whether he can be a reliable partner for advancing conservative causes — or whether his main cause is advancing Glenn Beck.

Beck, the fiery talker who has emerged as a champion of the conservative populist "tea party" movement, predicted the rally — dubbed "Restoring Honor" — will be a historic "pivot point" that will re-center American public life around its founding principles.

Liberals, meanwhile, have blasted the event as a partisan political rally intended to boost Republicans headed into the critical 2010 midterm elections. They've also accused Beck of exploiting civil rights iconography to advance his cause. Beck's rally is scheduled for 47 years to the day after the R

  • Fox is the a medium in which he draws support, so I guess we will see lots of Fox muppets. Imagine...a rally full of people that follow what a TV tells them to do. I can't wait for the internet videos of dumbasses. I hope someone will make a "fair and balanced" documentary of these creatures who show up.

  • Beck's "I have a scheme" speech will be at noon!

    Don't forget now... at this "non-political event" according to http://www.glennbeck.com/828/
    you cant bring in things like guns, ammo, knives, sticks, or laser pointers.

    LOL how much fun could one have with a laser pointer on Becks noggin, talk about entertaining!

    I won't be at all shocked if he suddenly gets ill and can't make this event.

  • All these radio personalitys care about is their bottom line. the money in their pocket. They make more money than most of us and all they do is get us to fight their battles for them. Battle to save them from being taxed.

    I will not listen to anyone that is that far removed from my reality.

  • Glenn Beck is mostly interested in Glenn Beck.

    I don't think he care's about 90% of the stuff he rants about.

    • he doesn't according to his interview with Forbes awhile back
      FROM http://www.forbes.com/forbes/2010/0426/entertainment-fox-news-simon-schuster-glenn-beck-inc.html

      With a deadpan, Beck insists that he is not political: "I could give a flying crap about the political process." Making money, on the other hand, is to be taken very seriously, and controversy is its own coinage. "We're an entertainment company," Beck says.

    • oh for fucks sake, quit with that lame ass comeback. Nobody is scared of Glenn Beck but MANY people are sick of him. When you have some rodeo clown (as he's admitted numerous times) who is being paid millions of dollars to falsely educate the politically ignorant which causes major discourse and dissent amongst the people in this country, then there are people who are going to have a problem with it! I am one of those people! He and Rush are malignant cancers to this country and its too bad we c More..

    • Really? what did I say here that is false? that he falsely educates or that his viewers are politically ignorant? or both? Because he certainly makes a shit ton of money off his nonsense of being a rodeo clown (as he admits of himself) and he does cause discourse in this country. Those facts alone are enough to make me dislike him!

      I think you are misinformed... why don't you see if you can fact check ole Beckster and see if you come up with the same cockamamie theories he does... you might b More..
