Tomorrow radio and television host Glenn Beck will hold his "Restoring Honor" rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., the same site where Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech on August 28, 1963. Organizers of the event, which also features former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as a guest speaker, say the rally is not about politics but rather a tribute to America's military personnel and others "who embody our nation's founding principles of integrity, truth, and honor." But some critics have argued that Beck is being insensitive to hold the rally on the same weekend King gave his speech to call for racial equality and an end to discrimination. Beck says the event will be an opportunity to "reclaim the civil rights movement," but he says he wouldn't have scheduled it for this weekend if he had known about the anniversary. His own Fox News colleague, Greta Van Susteren, has said that he should move the event for sensitivity reasons.
