One Nation Working Together Rally, Washington DC 10/2/10

Contrived or Grassroots?

Hat tip goes to ResistNet.com for their link to the video below. Here is a brief description found on YouTuibe describing the event, “Socialist protesters and paraphernalia dominated today's left-wing protest rally in Washington, DC. The so-called "One Nation Working Together" rally was led by labor union and other liberal cause radical leaders as an attempted to counter Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally, which took place in DC on 8-28-2010.

There was a Who’s Who of Leftist organizations who participated and endorsed this contrived demonstration. The groups included the key Leftist issues and supporters of the current regime such as

· abortion,

· homosexuality,

· amnesty groups

· extremist environmentalists,

· labor unions,

· so-called civil rights organizations,

· liberal churches and organizations

· political parties

Here are a few of the more recognizable organizations that endorsed this leftist project:

· AFL-CIO

· AFSCME

· American Federation of Teachers

· Climate Crisis Coalition

· Code Pink

· Communist Party USA (CPUSA)

· Democratic Socialist of America

· Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)

· General Board of Church and Society- United Methodist Church

· Human Rights Campaign

· immigration Equality

· NAACP

· National Council of La Raza

· Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays

· Planned Parenthood

· Rainbow PUSH Coalition

· Sierra Club

· Sojourners

· UAW, International Union

I would sum up this rally in a word, “contrived,” it was organized from the top down as opposed to the Tea Party and even Glenn Beck’s “Restore Honor” Rally on 8/28/2010. I suspect that many of those in attendance were paid attendees or were coerced to attend by union bosses or George Soros cash. Whereas the Tea Party Protests and Glenn Beck’s Rally was for the most part where true grassroots efforts. People paid their way by bus or car. I suspect that many of those in attendance at the “One Nation” had their way paid for by various sponsor organizations.

  1. Those rowdy Methodists!

    Yeah, you're right: those Methodists are sure a rowdy, socialist-type crowd.

    God forbid they should actually take Jesus's radical teachings seriously! Who KNOWS what would happen if Christians started behaving like Christians? It would be all socialist and scarey!!

    I think it quite odd that you believe a rally created by media manipulation is somehow more genuine than a rally organized by, well, organizations! So, for you, the media is what is most real, and everything it teaches us? Any affiliation we feel with some membership organization like a union or church is somehow false -- but the artificial sense of community we get from the Media is what is true?

    Yeah, right. Sorry: my values are less superficial than that.

    And I find it quite elitist that you would criticize people who can't afford cars from using much more efficient and environmentally friendly methods of transport, such as buses. Not all of us live in the suburbs and can afford to have our own little individually polluting automobiles, you know.

    The rallies you support -- where everybody is fortunate enough and wealthy enough to eschew buses -- must be quite elitist.

    Thanks for your comment.

    Like many mainline denominations, many Methodists have strayed away from their biblical moorings and doctrine and have essentially adopted another gospel - social justice - or liberation theology. In other words many mainline groups have become apostate. Many are now Pro-Death believing in Abortion, Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Euthanasia. Many worship the creation (Environmentalism) instead of the Creator. Many accept homosexuality as a normal, natural and healthy lifestyle and reject God's clear mandate against such behavior.

    So I am not surprised to see them on the list of radical or liberal groups that embrace the One Nation Rally ideals.

    In regard to your remark, "And I find it quite elitist that you criticize people who don't own cars for taking other, more efficient forms of transportation such as buses." You insinuate that I belittle those you took buses to the rally. Not at all, I made the statement that people paid to ride on buses to the Beck Restoring Honor Rally, while I suspect that many were paid to take the bus by the Huffington Post and Unions to build the numbers...

    I think that any rally that hires its attendees to build a false enthusiasm for a particular political position or cause(s) is unseemly ...

    If Jesus advocated Socialism, please show us in the Bible where it says this so that we can have a rational discussion. As far as I can see, Jesus did not advocate a political revolution of any type, but rather avoidance of such things.

    Greg:

    The meeting may be contrived, but by whom? What if this is just a publicity stunt by AFP to round up more members and dollars?
