No Love in Mt. Vernon for Glenn Beck

On Saturday Sept 26th as many as 800 citizens from Mt. Vernon, WA came out to protest the city’s decision to give former hometown boy Glenn Beck the key to the city.

Its unclear how many protesters were there demonstrate against him or there to support the Fox News commentator entertainer.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports that twice as many people were there protesting against Beck than supporting him, while The Seattle Times reports that it was more evenly split.

The Seattle Times reported from inside McIntyre Hall, where the ceremony was held, despite efforts by Fox News and Glenn Beck’s representatives to limit press at the event.

Among the protesters was Bellingham resident Minnie Pollett, who drove to Mount Vernon with about a dozen others… She said she wanted to protest because she resents Beck’s presence here.

“I believe in our Democracy. I believe in tolerance and President Obama, and the positive power to make a difference — not this,” Pollett said.
