Rally Wrap-Up: Get on the Train!

“So..uhh…what exactly was this?” ~Jon Stewart during his address at the Restoring Sanity and/or Fear Rally

ColbertRally.com was originally a parody site that evolved into an internet movement site to rally the momentum of like minded people who ‘get it’. By ‘get it’, I mean People who understood the parody and the spirit behind Stephen Colbert’s act, and the honest message behind the comedic brilliance of Stewart’s Daily Show. Stewart’s speech during the rally was right on point, condemning the cable news media and extremists who have no capacity for compromise. Fanatical pundits and blatantly biased news corporations who spew out their venom to rile people up for the sake of ad revenue are not helping this country move forward. This happens on both the ‘right’ and the ‘left’. Some outlets are more ridiculous and bolder than others with their branding of their message. The worst culprit obviously being FoxNews, but all commercial outlets are guilty of trying to spur their viewers into fear and anger with their polarizing rhetoric and what and how they choose to report.

“And yet with that being said, I feel good…because the image that the political and media process reflects back to us is false”

Seeing how many people supported this cause, the website, the charity drive, and the rallies in DC and throughout the world reaffirms the fact that the number of people who ‘get it ’, far outnumber the people who do not. For the most part, supporters are not hypnotized by the propaganda put out by the media. For the most part, we are all hard working Americans who are busy going to school, working their jobs, and taking care of our families. We each have our own individual opinions, but, for the most part, we are not going to force our agenda onto others because we have better things to spend our time doing. This brings us to the heartwarming paradox that defines this rally; Even though, for the most part, acting fanatical and rallying for a cause is against our ‘sane’ nature, hundreds of thousands of people all across the world came together to support a single cause so that the voice of the sane and reasonable could be heard.

“Our values and principals form the foundation that sustains us while we get things done. [They are] not the barriers that prevent us from getting things done.”

Moving forward, ColbetRally.com will be transitioning to www.RestoringTruthiness.com The goal of this website will be to continue the community and sentiment expressed by Stewart and Colbert at the Restoring Sanity and/or Fear Rally. The site will continue to offer comedic articles in the style of Colbert, but will also include the real stories behind the satire. The site will continue to be a voice for the sane, the reasonable, and those with an open mind with a sense of humor. We will bring you current issues with a comedic spin along with a link to the real news stories that inspired the content. We will also be a resource for connecting you to real news content without hyperbole and polarizing language. We hope the site will spur honest objective debates of the issues that face you every day. There will be no executive deciding what stories should matter most to you. You will tell us the issues that matter most to you, and you will have the opportunity be an active contributor to the site. So..

“Get on the Train…the Love Train..” ~The O’Jays at the Restoring Sanity and/or Fear Rally
