The Lincoln Memorial

A member of the Tea Party has put together a guide for those who are traveling to participate in Glenn Beck’s "Restoring Honor" rally. Fox News' Beck is hosting the rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. The only thing more ridiculous than the sheer and utter foolishness of Beck trying to usurp an iconic moment dedicated to unity and progress with a rally dedicated to division and racial superiority is the travel guide put out by the Tea Party to help visitors navigate Chocolate City. It isn't surprising that Beck, who is three-fifths the man that Dr. King was, would stoop to something so low, but it is surprising that someone who has lived in D.C. for 20 years would make such ridiculous statements about the city. The guide warns of overly sensitive African immigrants and the dangers of taking the yellow/green Metro lines, which lead to mostly black neighborhoods. FYI: D.C. is 55 percent black, so all train lines go to black neighborhoods. We love how you want Tea Party members to avoid those neighborhoods for safety concerns but are OK with black people living there day in and day out. Now, exactly which America does the Tea Party stand up for?
