Will There Be a Stephen Colbert Restoring Truthiness Rally?

By Sunny Chanel |

The people behind “Restoring Truthiness” movement are using the theory of “if we build it, they will come.” But in this scenario, the crowd is being assembled but will the honoree sign on?

Colbert Rally‘s “goal is simple, “they want to “Petition Stephen Colbert to hold a Restoring Truthiness Rally for the American people.” And this grassroots movement ain’t handing flyers down at the local Piggly Wiggly. This is a high-tech computer savvy assault on the internet to try to pressure the late night TV host to get out of the set and lead the people in a Restore Truthiness to America rally -  a nod to Glenn Beck’s recent “Restoring Honor” rally. So why a Stephen Colbert rally?

The Colbert Rally people stated:

“America, we are at a crossroad. Truthiness in this nation is at an all-time low since the inception of the concept was founded by the great American, Stephen Colbert. In its rich history over the past five years, Truthiness has become synonymous with American values such as freedom, honor, and Taco Bell. Recently our nation has suffered a truthiness drain. In fact, untruthiness is as common as measles vaccinations that cause cancer. We as a nation have stopped relying on our emotions and gut. We need to get back to what makes this nation great. Act on impulse not fact. Stop wasting time analyzing and just take what people say on face value. Why think when someone else can think for you. It’s superficial. It’s quick. It’s American. Restore Truthiness now!”

And some of their goals are working. They have yet to get Stephen Colbert to sign on, but their quest of becoming the number one Google Trends topic sure did. They held the number one spot for over an hour beating out all the searches for the NFL, Venus Willaims and the weather in San Antonio and they did so by pleading people to do a search repeatedly on Restoring Truthiness adding “Do not stop until you get carpal tunnel.”

So what would a Stephen Colbert rally be like? He, off camera, is quite the family man. Would it be a family values type event bringing Truthiness to the toddlers? Or would it be just a fabulous way for Comedy Central to celebrate one of their most popular offerings? But will Stephen Colbert take the challenge in the first place?
