Well, Glenn Beck’s eyes certainly weren’t dry. He started weeping while telling the crowd that somewhere out there was “the next George Washington”.
Dunno about you, but when I saw pan shots of the crowd — which was one of the whitest crowds in D.C. in recent memory — I mostly thought I saw “the next Timothy McVeigh.”
I just saw people peacefully exercising their constitutional rights of assembly and free speech in the best tradition of our country:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Timothy McVeigh stood for the exact opposite of the freedoms protected by the First Amendment and the message of the Restoring Honor rally.
But what do I know? I’m not an Eliminationist theorist.
