Glenn Beck Failed To Secure Permit For His MLK Day Rally
Glenn Beck Failed To Secure Permit For His MLK Day Rally
Filed under: General Mark @ 6:47 pm

With God as my witness, I thought turkeys could organize a rally. Even Glenn Beck. But as it turns out his plans may end up crashing to the ground.

For several months Beck has been promoting a rally in Washington, DC. It was originally announced as the launch party for his upcoming book, The Plan, a blueprint for the next 100 years in America. He later fundamentally transformed the event into a tribute to the military, although he stipulated that no funds would go to the designated charity until after his rally was paid for. Most recently he responded to protests that his event is on the same date, and at the same location as Martin Luther Kings I have a Dream speech, by asserting that he would be honoring Dr. King.

Well, never mind all of the alleged purposes of the rally. It seems it may not even take place. According to Bill Press, who contacted the National Park Service, Beck failed to secure a permit for his multiple-personality party:

***** At this point, according to Bill Line of the NPS, no final permit has been awarded for the August 28 event. The permit is still pending, and may not in fact be approved.

8. I don't think he can have access to the National Mall to hype his book.
I don't believe the Park would permit the use based on their requirements.

10. Thank God
Beck has ZERO credentials or justification for even REMOTELY honoring MLK.

He is EXACTLY the type of white person that MLK would reject entirely as an enemy of racial harmony.

14. If they don't, it'll just lead to more "poor, persecuted conservatives" whining
In fact, given how important grievance politics is to the far right, and the dwindling attendances at tea parties and Palin book signings, it wouldn't surprise me if Beck messed up his application deliberately, figuring it would be better for him if it was refused than if the rally was allowed to go ahead.

13. Glenn Beck holding a MLK Day Rally is like Fred Phelps staging a Harvey Milk Day parade.
SO glad he didn't get a permit for that kind of a farce.
