    New York Times article, Nov. 8, 1985, article about Ezra Taft Benson, a favorite of Glenn Beck’s:

    In a speech in Logan, Utah in 1963, he said civil rights campaigns in Mississippi were ”fomented almost entirely by Communists.” Legislation then proposed to protect the liberties of black people, he said, was ”about 10 percent civil rights and 90 percent a further extension of socialistic Federal controls.”

    Yep. This is a deliberate attempt to undermine the intent and high ideals of MLK for crass political gain, and for politics that are the very antithesis of what King stood for. Shameful.

    Glenn Beck is deeply anti-American.

    Rush is a pure opportunist, Beck is flippin nuts yet thousands of neo-nonsensicals (a tip of the hat to andy) follow their tripe and vote as they are directed.

    Freedom of speech they embrace, freedom of religion or the pursuit of happiness… depends on whose.

    MOTIVE: Alveda King, niece of MLK and a frequent guest on his show, will be speaking at the rally. Her father, A.D. King, was also a Civil Rights leader. (I’m actually watching yet another one of her appearances on Beck as I type.)

    I’m sure she disagrees with you.

    You really should stop getting all your news from Media Matters and the Huffington Post.

    ps: All proceeds from the rally, after expenses, are being sent to the charity Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a fund that supplies support, counseling, and education grants to families of those who were injured or died in the service of their country.

    churchill, you should stop getting all your news from Fox. I’ve followed Glenn Beck and his little paranoia show for some time now, and dug into his history and inspirations. I don’t read HuffPo and only rarely Media Matters – though I trust the latter far more than most news sources. His claim that he didn’t know it was the anniversary of the March on Washington is rather well hammered by your statement, don’t you think? And MLK’s son disagrees with you.

    He has the constitutionally protected right to speak.

    What, you think he should use some discretion and choose another place to exercise that right?

    Where have i heard that before?

    Why does Beck hate America?

    Glenn Beck did not serve in the military and openly despises it.

    He also despises the rest of us, as well.
