CHICAGO / DALLAS (August 28, 2013) – Republican activist and former congressional candidate Lenny McAllister will appear on “The Glenn Beck Program” on The Blaze TV Thursday, August 29 to discuss the stagnant economy and its impact on the nation’s collective pursuit of the American Dream during these continued hard times.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to speak to a segment of Americans that are looking for light at the end of this long, dark tunnel and solutions to these ongoing problems,” McAllister said in a statement about the upcoming appearance. “True leadership in our nation may not come from the traditional sources and that’s possible because we cannot continue to talk and act in the same ways, yet expect different results than what we’ve been getting.”
McAllister will appear on-set for the Dallas-based show to discuss several topics, including unemployment, ongoing efforts to implement voter ID laws, and legislative steps to get the country back on track. He will appear with guest host Joseph C. Phillips. The Blaze TV can be found on The Dish Network and select cable networks nationally. It can also be viewed online at http://www.theblaze.com/tv/
Lenny has been busy throughout the week. He spoke with HuffPost Live along with RNC Communications Director Raffi Williams and others on next steps for the GOP in light of the 50 year anniversary of the March on Washington. He was also scheduled to appear on “Inside Story” on the newly-minted Al Jazeera America station to discuss next steps for the Voting Rights Act after the June 2013 Supreme Court decision concerning Section 4 of the historic legislation.
McAllister also appeared on “The Source with Ezra Levant” on the Sun News Network Wednesday afternoon to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic “I Have a Dream” speech from a Black Republican perspective. Lenny’s comments from his writing, “Marching Onward from the Right to Procure ‘The New Civil Rights’” can be found below.
“True conservative leadership that reflects the legacy of 50 years ago in Washington embraces the notion that all corners of America fit into the confines of the Constitution – as voters, as citizens, as potentially productive members of American society – and pursues that end with a vigor that breaks down the stereotypes of the current GOP, repairs the breakdown of communication with key constituents, and forever abolishes the one-party system that many Americans have been forced to live under for the past 50 years. We, too, have a dream in 2013… celebrating suffrage for all citizens while winning over new voters from all areas in America… expanding educational efficiency and success for more Americans to secure our geopolitical and economic standing in the world…apply(ing) conservative principles in the spirit of patriotism and partnership with those that we have dismissed in the past with a wanton broad stroke… That dream must expand our vision in order to expand our influence.”
