Crowd Size at Beck Rally Debated

As many will no doubt be aware, Conservative  talk show host and political commentator Glenn Beck led a big rally at Washington’s Lincoln Memorial this past Saturday.

Labeled “Restoring Honor,” the rally promoting religious and patriotic themes and co-sponsored by (among others) the Tea Party Movement, numbered Republican Party vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin among its numerous speakers.

As has often been the case in the aftermath of other big Washington political demonstrations of the past (such as the Million Man March), post-event debate in part focuses on the question of just how many people were actually in attendance.  Estimates of the numbers at the Beck event range wildly from less than 100,000 to more than one million.

Regardless of your political convictions, Beck and his followers are attracting a lot of national attention.

If you’d like to learn more about Glenn Beck, Greensboro Public Library’s holdings include several books which he had a hand in either authoring or editing.  These include Arguing with Idiots:  How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government and An Inconvenient Book:  Real Solutions to the World’s Biggest Problems, as well as a new novel we have on order called The Overton Window.

  1. I watched the rally on livestream. It was awesome! It left egg all over liberal’s faces. They warned it would be a KKK rally. They should be ashamed of themselves. I am so proud of Glenn Beck. He is a statesman. God is using him for corrective action that must be taken.
