We noticed several things that were missing at Glenn Beck’s rally. We list them in random order; after all, we are Random Thots.
The name. Quick now, what was the name of the rally? The name was not well chosen and is already drifting into obscurity.
Spits and slurs. There was not so much as a false allegation of spits and slurs. The earlier attempt to smear by resorting to the despicable tactic of false accusations of such a serious nature only served to expose the deviousness of some members of the Black Caucus and tarnish the reputation of a respected civil rights hero. We have the people’s press to thank for that exposure.
Blacks. There were very few Black people, less even than the proportion of Blacks estimated to be in the Tea Party movement.
Signs. It was a wise move to ask that signs not be brought. Complying with that request was indicative of the nature of the crowd. Salt of the earth, good folks, adherents to the values the rally was designed to encourage, restore and preserve.
Litter, drugs, condoms and miscarriages. Remember Woodstock? It took several days to clean up the sight. 800 People were treated for drug related medical issues; eight miscarriages were reported. Such wanton behavior was missing at the Beck rally.
Passel of Politicians. Sarah Palin was there, but politicians were few in number and there were none presently holding office.
It was “The Restoring Honor Rally”. Disruptive behavior, angry confrontations and tee shirts in bad taste were not common fare. Also missing was condemnation of Obama by any of the speakers. His name never came up.
