Every time I think of Glenn Beck taking a gigantic crap on King's legacy last August, I feel enraged. If Beck had been older in the 1960's, he would have put King's face on his chalkboard. But in the bigger picture, King stood against everything conservatives stand for I think that King is too great to allow them to celebrate his legacy. Conservatives are racist assholes to the core, there's no doubt about it. If King was alive today, they would hate him more than they hate Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Jeremiah Wright combined. King would have been the target of a right-wing hitman like say Jared Loughner. King was as flaming liberal as you can get, we need to remind people that every day.
Let conservatives celebrate one of their own like Ronald Reagan or Ayn Rand, but not Martin Luther King.
