Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert have announced competing rallies to take place in Washington, D.C., on October 30, 2010, both in response to Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally.
At his "Rally To Restore Sanity" site, Stewart stated, "We're looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn't be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it's appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler. Or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles." Stewart announced the rally with Colbert's appearance:

At his "March To Keep Fear Alive" site, Colbert declared, "America, the Greatest Country God ever gave Man, was built on three bedrock principles: Freedom. Liberty. And Fear -- that someone might take our Freedom and Liberty. But now, there are dark, optimistic forces trying to take away our Fear -- forces with salt and pepper hair and way more Emmys than they need. They want to replace our Fear with reason. But never forget -- "Reason" is just one letter away from "Treason." Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but America can't afford to take that chance."
