Conservatives attending Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally clashed with demonstrators headed towards the future site of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. memorial on Saturday.

One marcher with the “Reclaiming the Dream” rally which was organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, the National Urban League and the NAACP was holding a sign that said “Reclaim the dream… stop these racists” with a cartoon of Beck.“Hey honey, he rented it! Mr. Sharpton could have rented it too,” said one Tea Partier. “We promote Martin Luther King.”
