Gov. Patrick wishes Beck rally was not at King site
AP ^ | September 1, 2010

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, "It’s a free country," and, "You got to respect that freedom."

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

Gee Deval, should we put up a “No Conservatives Allowed” sign at the Lincoln Memorial? Relegate them to the back of the metaphorical bus because they don't hold the right views?

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).

sacred ground...

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.

It is hard to conceive of how anyone generally read on Lincoln in general, the Meditation on the Divine Will and the Second Inaugural Address could not understand how the Lincoln Memorial was a fitting place for gathering to call for general faith initiatives to restore honor to the nation to re-cement the political process.
