Yours truly covered Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally on August 28, 2010. When Beck scheduled his rally, he didn’t know it was the anniversary of Martin Lither King Jr.’s classic “I Have a Dream” speech.
Given the anniversary, Al Sharpton was outraged and attempted to steal attention by announcing he’d lead “progressive” protesters to the Lincoln Memorial and “reclaim the dream” of Martin Luther King. To the best of my knowledge, no one spotted him there.
After all, Alveda King, daughter of Rev. A.D. King and niece of Rev. Martin Luther King, spoke at Beck’s rally. Click on the second or third link for her best line.
Anyway, here’s my eyewitness account to WND weekend editor Drew Zahn: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=196633
August 29, my analytical piece with insightful interviews was published with the headline above: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=197029.

2012 update: The filmmakers of “Runaway Slave” documented both Beck’s and Sharpton’s rallies. See my story on that @ http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/would-blacks-vote-for-a-white-obama/
