The August 28 rally falls on the 47th anniversary of the historic March on Washington, so several civil-rights groups have also applied for permits to hold events around D.C.
The only one approved so far is from a group of artists who plan to erect a four-foot sculpture on the Mall to honor Martin Luther King, Jr., and protest the Beck rally.
Update 8/19: As expected, Glenn Beck’s permit has been approved. Of note, Glenn Beck is setting expectations for the event awfully high. His original permit called for a rally of 150,000 people. But, he updated the figures during the final approval process and is now expecting a crowd of 300,000.
Only time will tell if Glenn Beck can meet his own hype. Tick Tock…
