Rush Limbaugh is still very much alive, but that hasn’t stopped Glenn Beck from launching a campaign to create “memorial boulevards” for him in small towns all over the United States. On his show last night, Beck proposed his alternatives to the popular Cesar Chavez Boulevard.
Speaking from Salt Lake City, where Beck was forced to pass a street named after labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, Beck said it was time for Americans to stand up for street names reflecting their non-left-wing heroes. “I’m not going to take it sitting down,” Beck said, presumably referring to the injustice of having to see Chavez’s name on a street sign.
“If you’ve got a town that has a Cesar Chaves Boulevard, I want you to start a campaign,” Beck told his viewers. “And if you’re in a small town where you don’t have a Cesar Chavez Boulevard… you have to embed what we are and who we are.”
He told his audience to “get your city council to start putting in a George Washington Memorial Boulevard, a Thomas Jefferson Memorial Boulevard, a Rush Limbaugh Memorial Boulevard.” Perhaps he thought suggesting a “Glenn Beck Memorial Boulevard” would have been taking it one step too far.
