Dear Reader,

Glenn Beck is NOT Martin Luther King Jr.! August 28th is an important day in American history.  On this date Martin Luther King Jr. promoted a just, equal, diverse and compassionate country in his "I Have a Dream Speech" at the Lincoln Memorial.

This year, on the same date, Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin will hold a rally at the Lincoln Memorial.  The racist and hate-filled tenor of Beck, Palin and the Tea Party movement is in direct contrast to the noble vision of Dr. King. We cannot sit idly by and let King's vision and legacy be hijacked for political purposes.

Our friends Robert Greenwald and the team at Brave New Foundation have produced a new video and pledge encouraging everyone to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s struggle for a just and equal America.

Please watch the video and sign their pledge to stand with Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision and against Beck's hate.

It is important for all of us to stand together with one voice against hate and intolerance.
