Martin Luther King was planning the Poor People's Campaign for economic justice when he was murdered in 1968.<quoted text>I know that it is unique, but I still hold that everything that the democrats did made things worse. Remember I was a democrat at the time. Martin Luther King was a republican and I don't think he'd have approved of the way things went. Now we have vice-presidents saying things like "they wanna put you back in chains" which I think is just low and he knows it's so untrue but he wants to put as back to the beginning. That is not the way you treat people with dignity.
Is that the Martin Luther King you claim wouldn't have "approved of the way things went"?
King wanted the government to do MORE of what they'd already done, lisw. His speeches and activities from 1966 through his death make that abundantly clear.
As to the idea that King was a Republican - that's a rumor that's been around for decades. IIRC his father was a Republican at a time when the term Southern Democrat telegraphed a specific mindset that pretty much said all that needed to be said on matters of race.
The most recent versions of that rumor appear to be based on a claim by King's niece with nothing to support it other than supposition based on King's assumed stance on an issue (abortion) that wasn't on the political radar until after her uncle's murder.
