WASHINGTON - Fox News host Glenn Beck wore a bulletproof vest at his weekend rally, where he claimed "many, many miracles" had occurred - including a flyover of geese."I'm absolutely wearing a bulletproof vest," Beck said he told Alveda King, the niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., before the "Restore Honor" event at the Lincoln Memorial. He and other speakers risked their lives but "she decided not to wear it," Beck said of Alveda King, and now "she is a marked woman for standing on that step with me."

I thought it looked like he wore one.
He should wear body armor in public. I hope he has bodyguards too.
Considering how he has had the FBI on his TV set because of death threats, it probably was a prudent move on his part.
Did Sarah wear one?
Not to me, but maybe it's just the angle.
Boy, nothing gets by Mr. Sisk(we had a number of postings on this yesterday).
Yep. I would too..
Of course he wore a vest. I’m surprised he didn’t wear a suit of armor! Beck AND Palin on the same stage?! Forget about it.
He has security, like you wouldn't believe.
I sure hope and pray that Alveda King is not going to be a target of anyone. I’m sure it stuck in the craw of the liberals that she went to Glenn Beck’s rally. But, she’s a niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, and an ordained minister herself. So how much can they protest?
But I’m sure the liberals would have loved to have her at Al Sharpton’s “me too” rally instead.
My sister and I were there and we both made the comment that he looked thicker in the middle and wondered if he had on a bullet proof vest.
We also wondered about Sarah Palin because she had on a jacket that seemed a touch large for her.
In some of the footage of his speech I noticed when he turned around and the shirt was tight on his back I could make it out.
He does have body guards. They accompanied him onto the stage and remained around him at the rally.
I think he half expected to be "martyred" at the rally, before returning to his Fox show three days later...
Given the propensities of the tolerant, non-judgmental, free speech loving left, I’d wear one too.
Twitter had many accounts of slime calling literally for the assassination of Glenn Beck all day Saturday.
And Glenn said yesterday that both he and Sarah wore armor.
Liberals hate Beck - and in spite of their ‘good press’ - liberals are the violent ones in our culture. Beck was smart to take this common sense precaution.
