Fox News’ Van Susteren Calls For Glenn Beck To Move 828 Rally
Glenn Beck’s decision to hold his I Have A Scheme rally at the same location and on the anniversary of MLK’s I Have A Dream speech has drawn the ire of civil rights organizations and leaders. But today, an unexpected voice has been added to chorus of critics – one of Glenn Beck’s colleagues at Fox News.
Today, Greta Van Susteren publicly expressed her opposition to Glenn Beck’s rally and called on him to move the event. On her blog, Greta explained (emphasis added):
On August 28th my colleague Glenn Beck is going to lead an event on the mall in Washington, DC. It is the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech. The event is causing much controversy …some support and some don’t support and some are even furious and upset. Yes he has a First Amendment right to do it…but what about the wisdom of it? Remember…the Muslims in NYC have a First Amendment right to build a mosque but most Americans don’t want it…and you have to ask the wisdom of the Muslims to push the issue. Just because you have the right to do something does not mean you should. My view? No mosque at ground zero and Glenn should move his event.
It does not help heal the country on so many fronts if we poke a stick in eyes.
As expected, Greta was viciously attacked by Glenn Beck’s fans, cult members and watchdogs.
I can almost feel the chill coming from the already dank hallways of Fox News. Brrrr
