Martin Luther King's rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial is now being parodied by the shill Glenn Beck. Martin Luther King's legacy has grown and become a symbol to millions of Americans and Beck's action is a mockery of the civil right struggle of black Americans. As someone who lived through those times there is a clear difference between Glenn Beck and MLK. MLK is a national hero and a giant who helped change the course of a nation as opposed to Beck who is a fraud, and would if he could minimize the accomplishments of the civil right movement of the sixties. But he cannot succeed, because anyone with any real intelligence can see him for what he is, an opportunist, fraud and small man of little character. He cannot diminish the accomplishment of great men no matter how he tries. He will have an attendance at his rally but not for the right reasons. They will not be there to fight for equal rights, for social justice or for common decency, no they will be there to fight for their twisted vision of their America and America that MLK opposed, an America that he fought against. They want an America that was everything MLK wanted to change. Beck and his mob want an America of the pre civil rights movement. They better get over it because it isn't ever going to happen. If they want to see rallies and a true American revolution try turning back the gains of the sixties, try turning back the gains of the civil rights movement, try turning back the gains made by all minority groups in America, just TRY, because if they did they would see such a ground swell of indignation that they would run for cover and hide in the dark.
