In a rambling rant on his show Monday, Glenn Beck argued against the existence of a "Cesar Chavez Boulevard" in Salt Lake City, instead saying that people should campaign to get "a Rush Limbaugh Memorial Boulevard."

Beck, who was broadcasting from Utah, wondered "what Cesar Chavez Boulevard has to do with Salt Lake City," continuing that he "is not going to take it sitting down," and urging listeners to fight back against the existence of streets named after the labor and civil rights leader.

"If you've got a town that has a Cesar Chavez Boulevard, I want you to start a campaign," Beck said. "And if you are in a small town where you don't have a Cesar Chavez Boulevard, you have to understand, you have to embed what we are and who we are in every way you can, everywhere you can. Get on your city council or get your city council to start putting in a George Washington Memorial Boulevard, a Thomas Jefferson Memorial Boulevard, a Rush Limbaugh Memorial Boulevard."

"Make sure you are ramping it up in your town and putting those boulevards and those street names," he added.
