    Judging by how Lil Beck aka Scarecrow is acting I would say if he was still active in civil rights then yeah probably, but by this time Mr King would be very old or possibly have already passed away from natural causes so it is hard to tell. Does Beck ever talk about Malcolm X at all? I think a better question is, is if he was alive would Mr King appreciate what Beck did?

    Not only do I think he wouldn't, Beck would have never even mentioned King nor had King's niece there in the first place.

    No clue. I did a fundraising drive thing for the board in the offtopic section, and Mega donated to the board for the right to pick my avatar for a month. Still need 25 bucks for the month, so check out the thread.

    The Beck and Palin adorers sends shivers down my spine. It reminds me of the naive Germans that ate up everything the Fuhrer said which eventually led them to slaughter and the ruin of their country. No Beck and Palin are no Hitlers but these money grubbing opportunists have a lot of potential to cause a lot of harm while they laugh all the way to the bank.

    If you knew anything at all about Beck, you would know that he is a great admirer of MLK.

    Beck admires communist sympathizers, socialists, wealth redistributionists, anti war activists?

    What show did I watch in the past, or what has Beck been smoking

    Beck has the opposite opinion of the majority of MLK's on most subjects

    Any more so irrelevant than asking 'what if' of a dead man? I dont know Becks politics or policies. I dont know if they are in line with what MLK stood for or not. I DO think it is relevant that his neice, who is actively involved in MLKs foundation, felt not only that Beck had the 'right' to have the rally on this day but also felt that it was a valid enough event to speak at. So like your sister, a wonderful person I am sure...the niece believed a least in THIS ONE event and that it was positive and apparently one that her uncle would approve of. Id have to go with that endorsement than with the questioning of the OPP...even though he IS apparently Beck obsessed.

    WIthout a doubt, Beck would be drawing arrows and linking MLK to socialism and communism, and making heil hitler gestures in his direction.
