Glenn Beck Schedules Rally On MLK Day, Says “Blacks Don’t Own Martin Luther King”

- By Bossip Staff

He went on to say: “I believe in divine providence. I believe this is a reason [the date was chosen], because whites don’t own the Founding Fathers. Whites don’t own Abraham Lincoln. Blacks don’t own Martin Luther King. Humans, humans embrace their ideas or reject their ideas. Too many are rejecting the Founders’ ideas. Too many have forgotten Abraham Lincoln’s ideas and far too many have either gotten just lazy or they have purposely distorted Martin Luther King’s ideas of judge a man by the content of his character. Lately, in the last 20 years, we’ve been told that character doesn’t matter. Well, if character doesn’t matter, then what was Martin Luther King asking people to judge people by?”

Civil rights leaders have denounced Beck’s plans, questioning his motives for choosing the date and place, which they said are historically symbolic of the country’s civil rights movement.

Beck’s choice of day and place for the rally “is insulting, is what it is,” Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League, said in an interview Monday. “August 28 is something special. It is a day that means something in American history because it was the demonstration in the United States in support of civil rights.”

Beck’s plans are “an effort to embarrass and poke a finger in the eye of the civil rights community because Glenn Beck and his public utterances don’t necessarily demonstrate a consistency with the vision of King.”

Al Sharpton says that his “Reclaim The Dream” rally is not a counter march to Becks.

“For Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin to have a march, they have the right to do so. Many of us suspect they are using the symbolism of that day in a way that does not reflect what the day is about,” Sharpton said. “At no point will we interchange. We will not desecrate the march and what King stood for.”

Aww snap, it’s the “Reclaim The Dream” posse vs. the “Restoring Honor” crew. (Shrugs) Maybe they should just settle it with a dance off.

    At first I thought Glenn Beck was just anti black but now I’m convinced he has more layers to his distaste that he wants to control blacks. How would he say blacks don’t know MlK can we have someone were proud of from our culture? Blacks don’t try to inflitrate their heroes legacy I don’t see many blacks claiming Elvis Presley, John Wayne or Ronald Reagan no we don’t butt in there business but whites continuely butt in blacks business because they want to control you MLK is not yours, if blacks can say the N word they feel they have every right to say the N word all of that shyt. They don’t bother Asians, Latinos or Indians about their culture and try to take over only blacks.

    • Really

      I agree 100%. I’ve been saying the same thing about the spanish word for black for a while now.

      P.S. most right wing pundits are fraudulent marketeer, and most(not all) black leaders are liberal uncle toms.

  • Eyez W!de shut

    Every time I hear Glenn Beck make a smart remark/comment or hell even actually make sense he says 15 things to counter his “fairness” to all people. U didn’t know it was MLK day cuz u don’t give a flying fu(c. Let’s be real, I’m sure he said “Oh, geez…oh well them niccaz wasn’t gone do ish but Bar-B-Que anyways”
