"ONE NATION WORKING TOGETHER" RALLY
IN WASHINGTON, D.C. ON OCT. 2nd FOR ALL
LIBERAL, SOCIALIST AND RADICAL GROUPS
By John Hudson, The Atlantic Wire correspondent September 27, 2010
Hoping to steal the spotlight away from the Tea Parties and Glenn
Beck, some 300 liberal groups are descending on Washington this Saturday for a rally. The event, dubbed "One Nation Working Together," aims to faithfully represent America's "embattled middle class".
"The Tea Party has been getting much more media attention than it
deserves, and it's been saying it represents the voice of middle-class
America." said George Gresham, an SEIU president speaking to The New York Times. "A lot of us feel we have to get a different voice out there
speaking for working people, one respecting the diversity of this
country, which the Tea Party does not."
Conservative pundits, emboldened by a strong turnout at Beck's
"Restoring Honor" rally, are taking an acute interest in the event.
On Comparing Beck's Rally to this Rally, Byron York at The Washington
Examiner, breaks it down:
Attendance at the march will likely be viewed as a test of liberal
organizing strength at a time when polls show Democratic base voters are
far less enthusiastic about the upcoming election than their Republican
counterparts. In particular, it seems likely the press will compare
turnout to that of the "Restoring Honor" rally staged by Fox News
personality Glenn Beck at the Lincoln Memorial August 28. (The One
Nation march was already in the planning stages when the Beck march was held.) The comparisons will, however, have to take into account two
significant differences. First, the Beck rally was essentially the work of one person, albeit one with a big megaphone in talk radio and cable news; the One Nation rally will be the product of the combined organizing power of the country's largest unions. And second, while the Beck rally was self-consciously non-political, the One Nation gathering will be frankly partisan. "It's time to stand up and march for the change we voted for," say organizers.
"How Does This Represent the Middle Class?" wonders Daniel Foster at National Review. The Times article mentions that the rally will consist
of the NAACP, the AFL-CIO, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, National Council of La Raza and other liberal groups. "More telling still,"
Foster writes, "Is the ranks of those left out" of the New York Times
article. Other liberal groups attending the rally include: Communist
Party USA, International Socialist Organization, Planned Parenthood,
Democratic Socialists of America and Code Pink. "A veritable tapestry of
America's embattled middle class," Foster jokes.
Probably Will Be Union Dominated, writes Warner Todd Huston at Stop
the ACLU: "It will be very interesting to see the numbers that turn out.
Likely you'll see thousands of professionally printed signs instead of
handmade ones (indicative of a lack of grassrootiness) and you'll be
presented with a sea of purple shirts, red shirts and T-Shirts sporting
other union colors showing that unions are the only real source of
They're Left-Wing Copy Cats, writes Stephan Tawney at The American
Pundit: "Yep. These leftist groups are angry that independents,
conservatives, libertarians, and even some Democrats have found common ground on a renewed platform of smaller government, fiscal
responsibility, and personal liberty. That common ground has manifested
itself in the form of many new Republican candidates on the path to
victory in 2010."
WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS
Your REAL NEWS Editor admits to being prejudiced in favor of the Tea
Party political movement. I believe in a balanced budget, smaller
goverment and protected borders. Do you know that our too numerous laws and unpredictable enforcement bureaucracies cause the United States to have a much greater percentage of our population in prison than any other country world-wide?.
My personal experience at Tea Party rallies is that the people there
are behaving very decently. I sincerely believe that the folks smearing
the Tea Party are either lying or have been wrongly convinced to believe
The Democrats are depressed about their collapsing poll numbers, so
it's time for them to start smearing opponents. They cry "racism"
whenever they need to distract from bad news for President Barack Obama.
Since the liberals in Congress and in the president's administration
have no believable defense for their bumbling mishandling of the
government, their only tactic is to smear any opposition. They can't
blame George Bush forever.
