Restoring Honor, with Glenn Beck and NewsReal Blog

Posted on August 28 2010 9:00 am
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

Get ready for it: two of NewsReal Blog‘s contributors, Mark Meed and Michael Merritt, will attend Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally and report about it for all of us.

“Restoring Honor” promises to be a fantastic event, that could have a major impact politically and, perhaps, culturally. Fox News has been promoting it for weeks now, millions are eagerly anticipating what’ll happen, and what’ll be said. Speakers include Glenn Beck himself (of course), feminist hawk Sarah Palin, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s niece Dr. Alveda King and Marcus Luttrell.

Although “Restoring Honor” is certainly a good name, “Restoring Freedom” would have been even better. To me, Beck is all about individual freedom, not honor as such. On the other hand, Beck’s intention clearly is to create a massive movement that’s dedicated to bringing back the values and principles of the Founding Fathers. If that’s not an honorable goal, I don’t know what is.

CSPAN will air “Restoring Honor” live. You can also watch it live at the event’s FaceBook page. Also: I’ll be live-tweeting it. To follow my tweets, go to my profile page.

How- and wherever you’ll watch it, be sure to check back often here for the latest updates and reports on this groundbreaking event.

Update: Walter Hudson and Mark Koenig will also be in attendance.
