    It's hard to speculate about what would've happened to MLK if he'd lived to be older.
    Maybe he would've become a corrupt scumbag.

    Given that MLK was considered a socialist a communist and anti american by the American government of his time, I expect Glen Beck would consider him to be a socialist, communist and anti american as well

    Beck would probably have a huge problem with this statement.

    A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. On the one hand we are called to play the good Samaritan on life's roadside; but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life's highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say: "This is not just." It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of Latin America and say: "This is not just." The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just. A true revolution of values will lay hands on the world order and say of war: "This way of settling differences is not just." This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into veins of people normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice and love. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.

    I doubt very seriously that Dr. King would be a friend of Glenn Beck, considering along with racial equality, Dr. King supported an Economic Bill of Rights and the redistribution of wealth as one of the routes to fixing black poverty.

    I'd even guess Beck would call Dr. King a racist, because Dr. King frequently talked about "the white man" and frequently told "the white man" what to do.

    Now - I'm not saying that Beck is a racist - so don't ****ing drag that card into play. What I'm saying is that Dr. King had economic views that Beck would utterly disagree with and I therefore think Beck would spend a lot of his time criticizing Dr. King. And I guarantee you that King would've voted for Obama over McCain / Palin.

    What?

    Oh, right, you're referring to the bull**** smear campaign run against the man by a government that was terrified ****less of him.

    Yeah, seeing as how Beck is part of the machine, he'd put the man on his chalkboard.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Of course.
    He's been on his chalk-board and he's quite deceased.

    Of course. King was a radical, a labor organizer and an anti-racist. Beck is the leader of a movement whose defining characteristic is white racism.

    The civil rights movement would have advanced faster, that's for sure.

    Glenn Beck would still be irrelevant though.
