How I wish MARTIN was here with us today, I am sure he would be disgusted and ashamed of the liberals and the protesters. MARTIN was a true leader, a strong man,who wasnt perfect and he reminded us of that , but he preached the word of GOD and spent his whole life bringing all of us together......He was not afraid of riducle and he was a man of peace.......He was a wonderful example for all of us...I miss him....I was blessed to have been alive on earth with him.....

    He wouldn't be for either side; both are attacking their fellowman for trivial reasons over politicians. So he wouldn't be for Conservatives either; he was a real man of peace and supported everyone, even the people who hated him.



    MLK


    I wish both sides would stop using his name in vain for their own agenda.

    the opinion is based on a person who studied King and wrote about him. not a person who just googled somethings and then became an overnight "expert"
    so your opinion, is just that, an Opinion

    Everyone, including MLK, makes mistakes. If he were alive today I believe he'd be a Democrate or Independent. Over the years, the philosophies of the two parties have switched to a big degree. So it could go either way. As a minister, he may or may not have agreed with gay marriage so he may have remained a Republican. No one could say for sure what he would have done today.

    He was pro-union, pro-civil rights, and anti-Vietnam War, which placed him in direct opposition to conservatives like J. Edgar Hoover, Bull Connor, George Wallace, and Strom Thurmond. He was even accused of being a communist!

    Further, "Martin Luther King, Jr was in fact an advocate for reproductive choice for women and was one of the original recipients of The Margaret Sanger Award. During his acceptance speech, he expressed admiration for Sanger's life's work and a belief that life is made better for people who are able to control the sizes of their families."

    This qualifies him as "liberal" in the context of mid-20th century America.

    He referred to abortions as mistakes which a woman should seek forgiveness for so he did not support abortions.
    The speech you refer too was not given by hhim, and many believe it was not written by him.

    Actually, he was Republican during the period that the GOP was more progressive on civil rights until their "Southern Strategy":

    SOUTHERN STRATEGY

    [QUOTE]
    In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-African American racism and fears of lawlessness among Southern white voters and appealing to fears of growing federal power in social and economic matters (generally lumped under the concept of states' rights). Though the "Solid South" had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party's defense of slavery prior to the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the civil rights plank of the Democratic campaign in 1948 (triggering the Dixiecrats), the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.

    The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon and Republican Senator Barry Goldwater[1] in the late 1960s.[2] The strategy was successful in some regards. It contributed to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the exp...

It contributed to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than ninety percent of black voters to the Democratic Party. As the twentieth century came to a close, the Republican Party began trying to appeal again to black voters, though with little success.[2] In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman formally apologized for his party's use of the Southern Strategy in the previous century.[3]

    Quite interesting to get all these details - that confirms indeed the drastic "changeover" of these two parties. Presently, the democrats get along easier with European mentalities, in spite of the many economic disagreements.

    Both sides are jive turkey suckas. Dr. King was not perfect and certainly not a saint.
    Also if he was alive he would be considered a "trouble maker" and not liked by most.

    MLK wanted people to be accountable and encuraged the black race to step up. Today democrats use the black pitty machine to their advantage. Now lets talk about Margrette Sanger, the white suppremicist that started planned parent hood to kill millions of blacks.

    as can be seen in all of bario's in North America. Yes there are achievers out there, but for the most part Black america won't let go of what happened 100 years ago. They also expect obama money. Don't get me wrong it isn't an easy path and there are racist on both sides but I think MLK like Cosby would be appauled at the black community and how liberals manipulate them today. Fact is I think there is more racial tension with obama in office then there was before...

    "but for the most part Black america won't let go of what happened 100 years ago."

    The people who talk about what happened 100 years ago the most are White people on this site. MSNBC low ratings should give you a clue; in addition being thousands of achievers out there, past and present. If you really think MLK would side with people like Pat Buchanan, Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Santorum and the list goes on, then you don't know what he was about.

    He wouldn't be for Obama, because he was anti-war, but he wouldn't be for the Republicans. He would be for the people who are patriots for all Americans, not just a certain demographic.

    ROTFLMFAO - Anti-War REALLY. what about the unconstitutional involvements in Egypt, Libya, and Syria. At least Bush got congressional approval for afghanistan and Iraq. All obama did was turn over power to the oldest know islamic terriorist group known to man (muslim brotherhood). Obama is the biggest divider this country has ever know on Race, Sex, Wealth, and Gender. Give me a f'n break! Then there is Eric Holder who allows Black Panters to get off scott free for voter intemidations because apparently Backs can't be guilty of Race Crimes.

    What evidence do you have that Sanger was "the white suppremicist that started planned parent hood to kill millions of blacks"?

    "Martin Luther King, Jr was in fact an advocate for reproductive choice for women and was one of the original recipients of The Margaret Sanger Award. During his acceptance speech, he expressed admiration for Sanger's life's work and a belief that life is made better for people who are able to control the sizes of their families."
