Martin Luther King, Jr. Part II

Martin Luther King, Jr. Part II

Who was civil rights icon Martin Luther King? Was he a social justice warrior who believed communism was the answer? Did he believe in Democratic or Republican principles? One need look no further than King himself for the answers.

MLK in his own words:

On Communism

“It so happens that communism is a system that I disagree with philosophically. I would not prefer to live under a communist system. I happen to feel that the great moments of history have been those moments when individuals have been left free to think and to act. And I feel that communism often stands in the way of certain First Amendment privileges that we have in America, for instance, that I just couldn’t adjust to.”

On Republicans

“Well, they’re certainly for civil rights and calling upon the Republican Party to take a forthright and positive position on civil rights.”

At the time of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, 80 percent of Republicans supported civil rights compared to only 64 percent of Democrats. Prominent Democrats like LBJ initially fought against the Civil Rights Bill, seeking to weaken it. Al Gore’s father opposed it, along with Klan member and Democratic senator Robert Byrd, and Democratic governor George Wallace.

Martin Luther King’s close childhood friend Bruce Bizard emphatically believed King was a Republican:

Martin Luther King, Jr. was Republican because his dad, first of all, was a Republican. He was the headshot. He was the head of the family. And if his dad was a Republican, then the entire household was Republican.

Bishop Jim Lowe of Guiding Light Church, who was injured in the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church that killed four little black girls in 1963, had this to say about the ideology of Martin Luther King:

Dr. King would be conservative. Come on, now, there’s no question about that. And he would be, he would be ostracized and condemned by many, many black people, because a lot of part of what was going on, they were turning against him then because they wanted a faster action. He had to deal with the thing. He had to deal with the Black Panthers then. He had to deal with the Stokten Carmichaels and the radicals that were there. But in spite of what he had to deal with his own people, he still held fast to the truth of the Word of God.

King’s niece Alveda King believes her uncle wasn’t a member of either party.

He was not a Democrat or a Republican during his lifetime. He said that himself. He calls, I think, during his lifetime, Democrats were Dixiecrats, you know. And so he says, “I’m not a Dixiecrat, nor a member of the Republican Party. I need to be able to speak to everybody.”

King’s legacy and message have been twisted and contorted by men conspiring to promote their own agendas of self-interest. Along the way, his simplest and purest message has been lost or scattered:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

It is the quintessential conservative message: Judge me by my actions, by my contributions, by my merit.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
