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.
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.
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
He already has been on the chalkboard as one of our greatest leaders in the civil rights movement.
But should show you what a phony hypocrite Glenn Beck is. MLK stood for many things Beck rallies against. Social Justices, social programs.
Beck pretends to be for civil rights, but it's a very twisted version of the Constitution.
That's a pretty meaningless statement all things considered. My sister, who is a lot closer relative than a niece, agrees with me on a total of 1 political issue, SSM.
This is probably the best way anyone has put this bull**** into perspective yet. btw off topic but your avatar has been bugging the **** out of me. What is it supposed to be and where it it from?
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.
