1) Rev. King would have opposed the Iraq War.
2) Rev. King would have been appalled at Pres. Bush's failure during the Katrina crisis.
3) Rev. King would hate all of those tax cuts for the rich.
What else would you expect from another black American who is a mouthpiece for the liberal Democrats?
What would Rev. ML King really say? Let me try something different:
On Katrina, Rev. King would have been appalled at what the liberal welfare state had to done to black America. I think that he'd agree with me that New Orleans is exhibit A of everything that is wrong with black America. After all, New Orleans had a black mayor who did not have a clue of what he was doing. Who created the mindset in so many blacks that the government is going to take care of you? It wasn't Rev. ML King!
On the economy, Rev. King would be appalled at how blacks are so invested in Jesse Jackson's "victimhood" that they continue to overlook all of the opportunities available in the US. Young blacks have huge scholarship opportunities but so many don't care about school! Who taught them that? It wasn't Rev. ML King!
On black illegitimacy, Rev. King would have been appalled at how the black family has been destroyed by dependency. Why are 75% of black babies born out of wedlock in the inner cities? Who told young black women to have babies out of wedlock? It wasn't Rev. ML King!
Rev. ML King was killed in April '68. However, I have a funny feeling that he wouldn't be a cheerleader for today's welfare state!

For more history, see Why Martin Luther King Was Republican by Frances Rice:
"During the civil rights era of the 1960s, Dr. King was fighting the Democrats who stood in the school house doors, turned skin-burning fire hoses on blacks and let loose vicious dogs.
It was Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who pushed to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and sent troops to Arkansas to desegregate schools.
And after he became President, Kennedy was opposed to the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph, who was a black Republican.
Given the circumstances of that era, it is understandable why Dr. King was a Republican.
Senator Byrd has the right to change his mind. However, it's important that we remind black kids that it was Republicans who opened the door.
