If it’s not obvious to you by now, most of this site is a parody and meant for entertainment. We respect all points of views and believe everyone should have a voice. One of the greatest rewards in putting this movement together is connecting the tens of thousands of people across the world who want their voices to be heard. The spectrum of supporters range from a coal miner in Tennessee to a craftsman in Germany to a musician in Australia. Some were in the same spirit of light-hearted satire like the site tries to portray, and some were serious about a ‘response’ to the Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ Rally. One thing is for sure, all are united in support of a Stephen Colbert ‘Restoring Truthiness’ Rally.
The idea started out as a simple post on reddit.com, but has turned into a huge internet movement. The spirit behind ColbertRally.com and ‘truthiness’ is to take politics with a grain of salt. Ironically, over the past week, we learned that many of the tens of thousands of people, who visit this site, are seriously passionate about propelling this movement. As a result, we found ourselves working over Labor Day weekend connecting people who share similar ideas and providing a place where their essays, videos, artwork, and creativity could be displayed. Our new goal was to at least have Stephen Colbert notice and entertain the idea of a ‘Restoring Truthiness’ Rally. This led to ‘Operation Strike of Truthiness’ which rocketed ‘Restoring Truthiness’ to the #1 searched term on Google Trends. We have had press from over a dozen different news outlets including the Huffington Post, New York Daily News, and the Chicago Sun Times.
Going forward, we hope this movement leads to more political awareness and involvement. The movement is growing and progressing. We need your help and your voice to keep it alive!
