So, anyone watching this? Live stream here.

This is insane. "Look, I have a Jew, some native americans and a pastor"

And the pastor was preaching about theocracy, I think.

Oh fuck, I had to click to start the livestream while former, half-term Alaska governor Sarah Palin was talking.

This just in: Go to church and everything will be fine. Also, give them your money.

I apparently tuned in at the last minute, just saw some guy singing, and then it ended. The comments were pretty disheartening, though. Divisiveness makes me sad... but I'm sure it will work out. When has backbiting ever been not a good idea, amirite?

I missed the livestream but I am okay with that. I did read the Company Overview that they put on facebook.

It was pretty horrible, if a little boring.

Most of the speakers were pretty poor. It's probably partially because they were looking for non-white, ultra-conservative and eloquent speakers. Seeing as that group's pretty small, they probably just settled for non-white ultra-conservatives. The reason's pretty blatant, especially with Martin Luther King's niece there: We Are Not Racists. There were more black people on stage than in the crowd, actually.

MLK's niece brings up another point. Glenn said that the date was a coincidence. Just a date he was free. Bullshit, of course. Why else hold it on the same location (well, two steps down, so it's okay)? Why else have every speech go on and on about MLK? Why invite his niece? Why talk about 'Taking back the Civil Rights Movement' (urgh)?

Some shameful shit from MLK's niece, as well. She's not as bad as the rest of the Tea Partiers, but she's pretty heavy on the whole anti-gay/anti-abortion thing. So, she invokes MLK while arguing against equal rights for gays. Honestly.

Palin was as incoherent as usual, but the difference was that she didn't really manage to get the crowd going. Usually, her stupidity doesn't really stop her from whipping the crowd into a frenzy, but now it was just... poor.

The rest of 'em weren't much better. They just kept going on about Jesus, freedom, honour and other keywords... without actually saying anything. The main point was: go to church and give said church lots of money. Oh, and theocracy. Yes, really. (also: fellating the army. Hoo-hah, bitches.)

Even Glenn was hitting above his weight. Even his tears didn't really help him. That said, Tea Partiers don't need much, really. Beck couldn't fail. They gave him his money and I'm sure his book will sell very well.

Overal, it wasn't anything special in se. I'm guessing that whatever plan Glenn has, this event is just a small part of it. How they'll spin this will be interesting. Guesses how this will go: stealing history, buyin' gold, no we're not racist, you're racist, I don't listen to anybody but those that confirm my horrid views, etc.

I can also confirm that the words "I have a new dream" have been said at, at least, one point.

I honestly don't understand this no equal rights for gays thing. What the fuck is so terrible about it that you can't treat them like humans?But this is a common complaint of mine. I could ask my dad (who is firmly in that camp which is a big problem for my sister) but I just can't bring myself to continue that conversation with him.

The whole rally, from the posted information about it, seems dualistic: oh this is for the troops wait donate ooooh church (christian only please) boo gays...

Is it just me that is bothered by that last bit in the facebook info where they state that yeah please donate but we cover our own costs first?

apparently, a bunch of people who either attended this thing, or horribly misguided on the facebook chat for this event believe that america was solely based on christianity. and that their faith and prayers will pull this country out of the hole its in. how about them apples?

I only watched parts. I was hoping that they'd either say something incredibly stupid or that one of the speakers would get shot.

Well, maybe not hoping they'd get shot...
