Today, don't forget what Glenn Beck said about Dr. King
While you are doing whatever you are doing today, don't forget what Glenn Beck said about people like Dr. King.
After all, he was a social justice Christian. And Beck asked you to get up and run from him. Because social justice is "code language for Marxism."
Now, you might just say you don't care because Glen Beck is "crazy." After all, this is the guy who said President Obama is racist against whites (even though Obama is half-white and was raised by his white half!).
But that would be problematic for two reasons:
First, Glenn Beck is a major media figure, and a very powerful man.
And second, Glenn Beck gave a national speech last year in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial not far from where Dr. King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
"How could Beck give a speech honoring one of the greatest spokespersons for social justice (Dr. King) while simultaneously saying social justice is code language for Marxism? That is, how could he both honor a spokesperson for social justice and then tell you, ""when you see those words [social justice], run."???
In my humble opinion , this is the clearest evidence that Glenn Beck does not know what the hell he is talking about.
Yet, he maintains a very popular radio and TV show in the mainstream media in spite of it.
Dr. King must be shaking his head, even in heaven.
