On Saturday, Glenn Beck, television personality, radio host, conservative political commentator, author, television network producer, filmmaker, and entrepreneur, led a massive “All Lives Matter” march in Birmingham, Alabama.
News site, AL.com stated that more than 20,000 people joined the march and were chanting “All Lives Matter” and had marched along the historic civil rights route from Kelly Ingram Park to Birmingham City Hall.
The organization of the event outlined the racial problems facing America and persecution of Christians around the world and was a part of Beck’s “Never Again is Now, Restoring Unity” rally campaign to raise awareness and raise funds to aid persecuted Christians in the Middle East, AL.com reported.
Actor Chuck Norris, Alveda King, a niece of civil rights activist the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Bishop Jim Lowe, pastor of the predominantly black Guiding Light Church in Birmingham, had helped co-organized the march with Beck and all led the march with Beck at the front.
Also attending the event was Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, who led the crowd in the pledge of allegiance and father of Republican presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, Rafael Cruz, also marched with Beck and others and led a prayer at the rally.
On his Facebook page, Beck stated, “This movement has already gone global as there are people from Dubai, China, and the Netherlands who came to be counted. I just saw a report on TV in Birmingham. Police say the crowd at the March was 20,000 to 30,000 and said that the “Never again” march is now THE LARGEST MARCH IN BIRMINGHAM SINCE MARTIN LUTHER KING’S MARCH IN 1963!!!”
In contrast, on the same day, the “Black Lives Matter” movement protested and marched in Minnesota in which only a few hundred showed up and marched to the Minnesota State Fair in bringing attention to nation’s race issues.
