Beck is known for his strong opinions, including his statement that President Barack Obama is a racist; he later told CBS' Katie Couric that he was "sorry the way it was phrased."
But organizers of Saturday's rally are telling attendees not to bring signs, "as they may deter from the peaceful message we are bringing to Washington."
Signs at some tea party events have included pictures of Obama embellished with a Hitler-style mustache, racial epithets and threats to Democratic officials. Such posters have given tea party critics grounds to claim the loose organization of activists is motivated by racism against the nation's first black president.
"Dr. King never had to ask anyone to leave their signs and guns at home," said Benjamin Todd Jealous, president of the NAACP. "To say to your followers, don't bring your signs — it's like saying don't open your mouth."
This is for people who wish to return to the honor of our forefathers
Still waiting on the answer to what freedoms you have lost.
Sound like a lot of talking points to me.

Um, correct me if I am wrong, but haven't pretty much all modern day Presidents been compared to Hitler at one time or another? Obama is hardly different in that arena. I don't agree with posters or pictures depicting anyone but Hitler as Hitler, but let's not pretend that Obama has been the only one attacked like this.
As to why they don't want signs, I wouldn't know, but I am willing to take them at their words: "as they may deter from the peaceful message we are bringing to Washington."
