March to “Keep Fear Alive”

On Thursday’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” the host announced plans to hold an event against extremism in Washington D.C. called “Rally to Restore Sanity.”

“See you October 30 on the National Mall to spread the timeless message, ‘Take it down a notch for America,'” he said. “A million Moderate march, where we take to the streets to send a message to our leaders and our national media that says, ‘We are here! We… are only here until six though, because we have a sitter.'”

Not to be outdone, Stephen Colbert announced on his Comedy Central show, which airs directly after Stewart’s, that he was throwing a competing rally: “March to Keep Fear Alive.”

“Now is not the time to take it down a notch. Now is the time for all good men to freak out for freedom,” Colbert said.

Reads the “Rally to Restore Sanity” site: “We’re looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn’t be the only ones that get heard.”

Colbert’s “March to Keep Fear Alive site” says, “Never forget — ‘Reason’ is just one letter away from ‘Treason.’ Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but American can’t afford to take that chance.”

The news comes just three weeks after Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally on D.C.’s national mall, which coincided with the 48th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

      Me too SJ, it’s a sad indictment that we have to depend on comedians to tell it like it is because trained journalists won’t, or can’t . . .
