Al is nothing but a racist, racebaiting hypocrit. I saw absolutely nothing wrong with Glenn Beck's rally at the Mall or the date chosen. If Mr. Sharpton were true to his word and wanted to promote racial harmony, he and his people would have been rallying alongside the others.

Abby,

Yes Al Sharpton is far from what most people would consider "politicaly correct". At the same time, Glen Beck held a spectical on "honoring the troops" and claimed that it was not a "political" event, both you and i know that is bull. He wants to restore America...Interesting...Restor e it to what era??? 1-2 Years ago...Before Obama? Not that much has changed in the past 18 months.... Or maybe to the 60's and 50's..Oh Wait, maybe to the 1800's... I'll wait...

if someone posted something about a Sharpton rally and said " A MOSTLY BLACK CROWD"... I'm sure those people would be labeled racist...

GET A LIFE AL SHARPTON AND JESSE....,.YOUR SIGNIFICANCE HAS LONG SINCE WAINED YOU ARE NO LONGER RELEVANT..

The only ones keeping racism alive are RACISTS LIKE YOURSELF....
BECAUSE APPARENTLY IT PAYS... FOR JESSE OUT OF WEDLOCK KIDS AND FOR YOU AL TO SUSTAIN YOUR LIFESTYLE BECAUSE YOU CAN'T MAKE IT IN POLITICS>>

This is a very irresponsible article. First of all, there were obviously more than a mere tens of thousand people at Becks rally. Second, Dr. Kings own niece was a speaker at the rally, I think she has a pretty good idea of what her Uncle's message was about. This rally was not meant to taint the history of Dr. King, if anything it was an effort to build on the legacy of it. The speeches were not race related at all, they were America related. It is about time the black community puts Al Sharpton in his place. He has done nothing to move the black community forward. He is nothing more a bully that cannot back up what he says. He makes outrageous claims, then when he is proven wrong or incorrect, he slithers away without an apology. He has no respect for the black community, he just uses them for financial gain. CBS 6, you need to do better reporting than this.

WTVR and the rest of the lame stream media THIS IS EXACTLY WHY NO ONE IS WATCHING network news....you all have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what this rally was about IT WASNT ABOUT POLITICS it was about RESTORING HONOR something the lame stream media has none of HONOR if you did you wouldnt be worried about a DATE.MLK would have been with aveida king and Glenn beck if he was still alive because he was about HONOR not about race baiting as with Al sharpton.But stories like this is why i no longer watch ANYTHING on the lame stream media if it wasnt for football and nascar being broadcast on NETWORK tv id be DONE with network tv. you have sold your SOUL to the the obama and the democrat socialists movement THIS IS WHY THIS RALLY HAPPENED but all the media is focused on is the DATE THE LEFT DOESNT OWN MLK no one does...and i like how wtvr FAILED to mention that sharpton couldnt even fill a HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STADIUM meanwhile beck filled up the lincoln memorial and then some they even violated air space to get pics and now there cropping them just to make it look like a failure....oh and did i fail to mention that ALL of sharptons people was PAID TO BE THERE.....once again the lame stream media fails to see the REAL ISSUES there to focused on a DATE. and heres another question LAME STREAM MEDIA you cried about George W Bush going on vacation TO HIS OWN RANCH and it was a WORKING VACATION......why arent you screaming now obama has took 5 vacation IN SIX WEEKS. can you say double standards???BUT keep worrying about the date of the rally just remember this date lame stream media NOVEMBER 6th, 2012....THE DAY WE ELECT REAL CHANGE NOT BUMPER STICKER SLOGANS AND EMPTY PROMISES

Ok...What exac. does it mean to restore honor????? Honor in what? When was the honor lost? Seriously, if it takes Glen Beck and Sarah Palin to get people back on track, that is sad. I am sure the two of them will make millions off of book sells again next year, they have a huge following, they are in it for the money. Palin left office early for no reason other than financial gain. Honor, yeah.......

Dr. Kings niece had to be brought in by Glen Beck so that it would not look irresponsible on his behalf of holding this ridiculous spectacle on the same day as MLK...

@ Noah....is the president not suppose to take a vacation? Does he not deserve a break like any other human being? I love it! You idiot rights are making it easy for the lefts this upcoming November and in 2012, a time that should be a shoe in for the rights will not be taken advantage of!!!

@ Noah... im reading through your ignorant rant, and i would also like to add that all of Al Sharptons " People" were not paid to be there. Several churches in the Richmond area alone chartered members to the rally. " His People" lol!! Great Article News 6 keep it up!!!

@Hypocrites, Jesse Jackson will always be relevant to the African American community, he is a great man. We are all human beings, there is no need to bring his personal life up, we all fall short of the glory ( thats in your bible). Your hero Sarah Palin's daughter has a child out of wed lock, and Glen Beck is a recovering drug additct, read on it. Am i judging them....NO....Just making a point to you, personal lives shouldnt be brought up on this post b/c that whole rally yesterday was ya know...none policital.

the left will eventually not have anyone left to fool into voting for them.

we have already won.

also watch as my generation learns why we have to work until we are 80 to pay for other people's social security and medicare and medicaid once it is technically dead, the left won't even have them for much longer.

Now the right needs to work on the problems and double standards on race instead of ignoring it so they don't make blacks hate them even more for some reason.

and then after that politics is done for good and we can work on getting birth rates up to become a productive nation again.

Dr. King's niece wanted to be there and thoughly enjoyed the event and speakers alike. She was on national television last night saying what a great time she had. Her final thought was "it is no longer about any one race that we are all the human race" I certainly enjoyed having her there and watching her on TV. It seems the race baiting and hating is solely in your court now. That makes you the biggot.

Your closing statement was that the left (DEMS) will not lose ground in November. If you truely believed that you wouldn't be such a hater on Palin and Beck. Truth is your left is going to lose and lose BIG!! November 2nd will be a day you will not want to remember. Prescription pads will be working over time so that the leftys can coop.

So Mr. Richmond get over yourself now or wait till November either way we don't care. Your a biggot in DENIAL!!!!

The problem with the black community is that it has no expectations of its people - young or old. They continually pop out more of the same. These people idolize the Sharptons and Jacksons of the world because they promote black people staying just as they are and making the working class American pay for their misdoings. I find the entire program sickening. Al Sharpton only rallied his troops yesterday to stir the pot. He's nothing but trouble. Needs to put his suits in the back of the closet, relax his hair and call it a day.

.......give examples to your claims. When was he proven wrong, about what? What do you mean by saying he has no respect for the black community? Explain. Otherwise you're just talking.

I found an email for you to read on the FACTS of Sarah Palin in hopes you will learn what HONOR truely is. If after reading you don't understand than just forget it your lost.
By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman.

The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it.. It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here..


1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.

3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as "pork." She went through the list, took 85% of the m and placed them in the "when-hell-freezes-over " stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor's jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.


4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.

5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.


6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewables by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be holding my breath.


By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.


You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents' wives.


So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals. I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.
