    Re: Crowds gather for March on Washington 50th anniversary

    MLK's message was good but he was a hypocrite - I suppose no more than most politicians tho...

    The problem is that few people actually practice what he preached - he didn't even practice what he preached - yet people celebrate his words...

    I don't believe MLK was a racist, nor do I believe his intent was bad, however, he certainly did preach conservative values but like many conservatives didn't practice those values - yet was a man who spoke highly of judging on character.... I suppose only a few in history were ever able to truly talk the talk and walk the walk....

    You ever read the hate black conservatives get???

    Stacy Dash is a good example..... Hell, how about Tim Scott not invited to speak at the MLK rally???

    Like it or not MLK was a conservative - democrats at that time hated blacks.... Black politicans learned to use blacks later because they were growing in size and represented a large voting block.

    As LBJ said in 1964: "I'll have every nigger voting democrat for the next 100 years."

    Pre-1970 half of blacks voted republican and MLK was certainly a conservative......

    Sorry, but the Republicans of the 1960s bear no resemblance to the Republican conservatives of today...

    No it's not. The only way that Martin Luther King wouldn't be labeled an Uncle Tom, is if he turned out to be a big-a-fraud as the rest of civil rights industry CEO's.

    No one there was remarkable, except Governor Martin O'Malley of Maryland. He gave a great Democratic speech.
    While Thomas is an American success story he is not a Justice in the mold of Earl Warren or Thurgood Marshall that is identifiable with the Civil Rights movement. Or do you believe he should have spoken simply because he is black?
    I think he an American success story and too often the successes are ignored and the problems highlighted. Thomas is a great rags to riches story.

    Would this hypothetical Republican have shown any remorse and changed their views? 54 years passed between Trent Lott voting for Strom Thurmond and his comments that the United States would be better off had he won in 1948, and yet his political views hardly changed. The same cannot be said for Robert Byrd.
    Most historians recognize the difference between northern Democrats and southern Democrats during the Civil Rights era. From my experience the only ones who do not are nothing more than partisan hacks.
    "Partisan hacks", huh? Was there a meeting among the partisan hack leftists recently to discuss a new buzzword?

    Much like how most Tea Partiers are Republicans that does not mean they get along with what they consider establishment Republicans.
    No they don't always agree but they are not racist by any measure.

    Such an adversarial relationship existed between Dixiecrats and northern Democrats.
    Not as much as there should have been.

    Given the nature of the American political system it was more expedient for Wallace to be a member of one the two major parties than form his own party.
    He was a Democrat already.He didn't have to change parties.
    He won two primaries after he was shot. Those victories were more a sign that voters pitied him than any proof that he was a viable option to win the nomination in 1972.
    MLK's Democrat assassin thought he would win. He certainly got a lot of Dem votes.
    This has nothing to do with what I posted. I merely am saying the rhetoric of George Wallace matched that of the Tea Party.
    And I'm saying that's crap.

    Do you deny the Tea Party rails against the federal government, left-wing liberals, the liberal press, and the Supreme Court?
    Rails? Yes I do. But a lot of people of every political stripe do that.
    MLK Jr.'s father was a Republican when it was common for blacks to vote for the Republicans, but the same cannot be said of MLK, Jr. Although he never said which party he voted for his views were more aligned with the Democratic Party. Just for fun, here is an excerpt from a Nobel lecture:He was such a great Republican that he openly applauded the loss of conservative Republican Barry Goldwater. Keep on living in that bubble!
    Dr. MLK delivered the Black vote to the Democrats in order to get a reluctant Kennedy to pass the Civil Rights Bill. Of course Goldwater was none of those things King said of him and it stains his memory.

    Johnson also developed the Great Society and Black dependence on the government was born..“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
    - Lyndon B. Johnson. Of course, at the same time, LBJ was also concerned about the influence he had created. "These negros, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they’ve never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness".

    Where do you find the main difference? The Democrats remain pretty much the same.

    He preached nonviolence, he practiced nonviolence, he participated in nonviolent demonstrations. Where did he "not" walk the walk?
