HELP: Glenn Beck is getting the key to my city on Saturday!
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 06:20 PM by rd_kent
Mount Vernon, WA, north of Seattle.

I need help with slogans for my protest signs. Any ideas?

I will be wearing my sidearm as well. Two can play at THAT game!

6. With the exception of the rising crime rate
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 06:17 PM by rd_kent
due in large part to Hispanic gangs, this is a pretty good town.


Edited to capitalize Hispanic on the advice of another.

I was making a statement of fact. Nothing more.

I guess I see your point though.

I'm lily-white--and very offended.

This one has miles to go, apparently. Love how s/he wants to make it MY problem (I'm being "too sensitive.")

4. The best response? Start a rumor that the time and location have changed.
Make the new location a hometown ice cream shop. Nobody shows up and you help a local business.

9. He and the mayor were childhood friends.
There has been so much backlash, that the mayor has to pay for everything personally. No city money to be used.

If he wanted to party with Beck, he should do it in a non-official capacity.

40. My point was...
The symbolic gesture of giving someone the key to a city kind of loses its oomph when there's no actual city involvement. It becomes just a guy getting a handjob from his buddy.

And he is pretty rational and non-ideological. This whole thing is strange

38. this was posted on another list by thE GM of KSVR
There is a huge protest of Glenn Beck in our little town, on Saturday
Sept 26th (after his appearance at Safeco Field in Seattle), where our
mayor is giving Beck the key to our city.

We will have the mayor on the air next week to explain again about his
idea, as well as organizers of various protests regarding the event. One
restaurant owner lost a $5000 wedding reception because the client won't
"spend a dime in the city" because of the mayor's idea. Of course this
is misplaced protest in harming an innocent business owner, but
indicates the emotional level of this matter locally.

I am trying to document the whole thing for a special to be released the
week after his appearance here. We have over 10 people ready to record
street audio.

The supporters of Beck bought up all 600 tickets the very minute they
went on sale at our local venue, so no protesters could get in. The
tickets are being privately distributed. The proceeds are being donated
to a local non-profit, which grudgingly is taking the money, but isn't
very happy about the source. Beck will be standing in the same spot
that Amy Goodman stood in October 2006, so it really irritates a lot of
us.

Voices in our documentary about the influence of media commentators and
how they are tearing communities apart with spin and lies, will include
Robert McChesney and Peter Hart, and I am waiting for replies from other
media watch folks. Of course we will distribute on AudioPort and
Radio4All.

49. 600 tickets, eh?
So that means Glenn will faithfully report that 4 million cheering people show up.

Isn't there a community-wide airhorn check that day?

61. You are not alone!
Just heard from family on Oly Peninsula that they have been emailing your mayor with everything they can get their hands on about Beck. They're about ready to relocate to MV just so they can vote against the guy when the time comes. They have been activists for years and are relentless. Do what you can to keep the pressure on, make certain that he can't ignore the citizens' displeasure, and by all means let us know how it all turns out.
