    Jackson and Sharpton do a lot of things that King did in the civil rights movement, maybe not 100% but nevertheless they did some very similar things. Today, any African Americans who stands up against racism against minorities and doesn't fall within the rightwing spectrum politically is called a race hustler. When Larry Elder makes a book called "Stupid Black Men and how to play the race card" the rightwingers don't see that as "race hustling" since Elder is a black rightwinger, if Jackson or Sharpton criticizes racism they're race hustlers. King, with his record of fighting against racism would be called a race hustler by today's rightwingers.

    todays right wingers will say much of anything. Birthers come to mind. Pulling the plug on Gma. Obama is a Marxist commy, etc.

    this current crop will fade soon enough.

    That's funny because I'm convinced Jesse Jackson murdered MLK, to get him out of the way because he wasn't "extreme" enough to his liking.

    But the only evidence I have to back that assertion is Jesses big ass ego and envy of Kings power and position. That is plenty of motive - not to mention Jackson was swaying from the movement and attempting to start his own.... He only gave birth to Al Sharpton.

    But I'm pretty certain Jackson had King assassinated...

    Well one would have to be educated on both MLK and Jesse Jackson to realize my assertions and their relationship.

    Jesse was without question envious of MLK.... And it wouldn't be the first time in history a guy knocked off his mentor... It has only happened several dozen times throughout history.

    In what universe is Jesse or King immune from that?

    That is the most interesting or maybe bizarre element in politics today. Take any issue and if Obama were to do A the republicans would say B was right, if Obama had done B, A would be their selection. Libya was just the most recent example, Obama didn't do enough, then when the tide changes, he did too much. It demonstrates just how irrational thought is when power is lost.

    Yep.

    Add in most conservatives at that time absolutely hated Martin Luther King. They called him a communist as well (Marxism: The new black).

    You have no proof whatsoever to support your absurd claim. King had lots of people around him, why would it have to be Jesse Jackson when some people were jealous of Jackson and said that he exaggerated his closeness to King?

    They even insist King was a Republican despite him supporting two Democratic Presidential candidates and taking ositions that rightwingers go against today. On the day and place King was assassinated he was in Memphis to speak on behalf of striking black gargabe workers and their union, rightwingers hate unions.
