From the item in The Boston Globe we have this:
Organizers say more than 400 organizations — ranging from labor unions to faith, environmental and gay rights groups — are coming together to advocate for job creation, quality education, and justice.And then this:
Although organizers describe the rally as nonpartisan, they also hope to raise awareness of their concerns before political contests that are expected to sweep out many Democrats.So what makes a rally "nonpartisan"? Speaking of the Glenn Beck rally last month the newspaper of record for the hub of the universe says:
Though also billed as nonpolitical, the rally was widely viewed as a protest against the policies of President Obama and Democrats.So, it would seem that if the rally is by "progressives" it is "nonpartisan". And they are going to charge us in good hard Yankee dollars for this kind of thing starting next year?
UPDATE: As Kad Barma correctly notes in his comment (Comment 1), the on-line headline no longer has the headline "Nonpartisan rally set for Lincoln Memorial" but rather now reads "Activists to hold rally for progressive policies", although the tagline that come up does come up on my Safari Browser still says, on the tab, "Nonpartisan rally set for Lincoln...". I say kudos to The Globe on-line editors to picking up their initial mistake and trying to correct it.
