Skip to comments.Gov. Patrick wishes Beck rally was not at King site
Posted on 09/01/2010 2:19:22 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Gov. Deval Patrick says the Lincoln Memorial is "sacred ground" to him, so he wishes Fox News commentator Glenn Beck had not held a rally there.
Yet the Democrat says, "Its a free country," and, "You got to respect that freedom."

You would think thousands of innocents were slaughtered there.
How does Gov. Deval Patrick feel about the Democrats old Jim Crow Laws?
Yeah, how DARE that Beck fellow conduct all that talk about God on such sacred ground.
Yeah Guv, as difficult as that is for ya, you gotta respect that First Amendment right
It is the LINCOLN MEMORIAL, not Kings site, ass.
Its okay for a Muslim to do a victory lap at the sacred ground zero, but its not okay for a Mormon to thank God at the sacred ground of Lincoln’s monument.
I smell a setup for the mosque/GZ flap...
Deval Patrick (Obama’s mini-me) essentially invited
millions of illegal aliens, “eloquent rapists”,
and Sharia to Massachusetts en bloc.
*It is the LINCOLN MEMORIAL, not Kings site*
I think after 47 years, King’s claim on the site as his own has expired.
Instead of worshiping the ground where King spoke, how about putting the man’s principles into practice?
I was not aware he owns the Lincoln Memorial. When I have been there, honestly my thoughts have not been about MLK, I must admit. He needs to grow up.
OK, so why open your mouth in the first place?
Bump, bump, bump! How dare they assume a publicly paid site is owned by anyone. It is everyone who pays taxes. So, that excludes geitner!
I have news for those who think it’s MLK’s site, it’s not. It’s OUR site. If the site was so special to them they should have already booked it long before this rally was planned.
So stuff it.
related, though somewhat contrary point of view...
Excuse me, that site was a Lincoln site.
The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.
The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.
- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006
"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,
[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006
Gov. Dukakis (who did not have to flee Massachusetts):
"Mitt Romney is the biggest disappointment I think I've ever seen.
He was a lousy governor. After a year and a half, he just walked away from the job.
He just bounced around, depending on the way the wind blows."
Is he saying that white people are not part of the civil rights movement? Sounds divisive to me.
Ooh, zer0’s showing his gayface.
Hey, Gov. Patrick!
Wish in one hand and sh*t in the other. Then tell us which one filled up first.
Now...don’t you have a Ho to go nail....?
Get lost, Blinky!
Last I read, it was still called the “Lincoln Memorial”, not the “King Memorial”. It is NOT a King site by any stretch of the imagination.
Its Lincoln’s site, MLK just used it for a day.
Translation: "Only Black People have the right to hold rallies there and if you don't believe that you are a racist..."
What more does anyone need than to look at the purse on Obama’s lips to see that somethin’ ain’t right with this guy.
Dumber & Dumbest
If the black racists want their own MLK site, they can raise enough money to build an MLK memorial.
The other memorials belong to the rest of us.
Then the participants in 1963 shouldn't have left the place looking like a landfill.
The Kenyan just spent a fortune to redecorate his office just like Patrick. Coincidence? Nah. Both live large off the taxpayer.
Last I heard, it was the Lincoln Memorial, not the MLK memorial. Blacks are panicked that their victim gravy train is drying up.
Pinocchio looks so giddy with the guv. Is there something going on we haven’t heard about?
Are you suggesting Glenn fly a plane into the Lincoln Memorial to get permission to express his views there.
Interesting THAT is sacred ground but the 9?11 site is not.. all a matter of opinion
So the changed the name from the Lincoln Memorial to the Martin Luther King memorial? I must have missed that.
Perhaps a “No Republicans” sign but that would be a little awkward at the Lincoln Memorial (and considering that its likely that Dr. King was a Republican at least early in his career when virtually no Southern black was a Democrat).
Can he get anymore prissy? I will be so glad when he is gone.
For people to practice their constitutional rights. They treated in the sacred sense as well when they cleaned up after themselves. It’s odd that a politician, who should know about Separation of Church and State, should also know that different faiths loan their property to different faiths on a regular basis. Cleanliness of a church or synagogue after we meet in them, which is a good example of treating sacred, we make sure is clean upon leaving. Though I won’t compare a building of worship to the national mall, the assembly was peaceable, they spoke their points, and cleaned up as they left, they treated the lawn as sacred by all definition.
I didn't know Beck had a rally at the Civil Rights Museum....
He may not quite have realized it yet, but Deval Patrick is utterly irrelevant - even in Massachusetts.
Well, Boston is sacred ground to me and and it pains me that I have to put up with the likes of these communists in control there such as Cadillac Duval.
Well the pic of him riding the girl’s bike may take the cake but he’s definitely letting his girly side out more.
Excuse me it is not Kings site it is the LINCOLN MEMORIAL.
Which parts of Deval Patrick’s speech, written by Axelrod’s writers, will Obama rip off this time?
