Ok, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have our attention. We’re all about looking at the world from a place of love, not fear, so Colbert’s mission to bring people to Washington DC for a March to Keep Fear Alive is just too much for us to take sitting down. We all need to stand up and listen to Bev Barnett & Greg Newlon sing Love Can Change World. You can watch the video right on this Web site.
Her’es what Colbert says on the March to Keep Fear Alive Web site:
“America, the Greatest Country God ever gave Man, was built on three bedrock principles: Freedom. Liberty. And Fear — that someone might take our Freedom and Liberty. But now, there are dark, optimistic forces trying to take away our Fear — forces with salt and pepper hair and way more Emmys than they need. They want to replace our Fear with reason. But never forget — “Reason” is just one letter away from “Treason.” Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but America can’t afford to take that chance. “
We’re not sure if Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity counter measure is the answer, but its worth thinking about. We might be too busy to actually do anything about it, but then again, that seems to be the whole point behind the movement.
The Huffington Post pulled it together with an analysis of these these two video clips from each satirist’s recent shows, saying either way, to expect lots of Stewart and Colbert fans to show up in Washington on October 30.
We can’t be there though, we’re too busy.
