The differences between MLK Jr. and Glenn Beck

Posted By on Thu, Aug 26, 2010 at 1:36 PM

As you've probably heard by now, Fox News' comedian-turned-crybaby-political-pundit, Glenn Beck, has decided he should hold a rally on the anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I have a dream" speech ... and in the same location, no less.

Below, you'll find videos of MLK Jr.'s famous speech as well as an interview with Glenn Beck where he defends his notorious habit of making racist comments. You tell me: Are these men anything alike?

I say they're nothing alike. For starters, Rev. King's mission was to bring people together and Beck's mission is to dumb people down and convince them to distrust anyone who's not like them. With that, I can only assume Beck is doing this for the attention.

But, that's just my opinion. What's yours? What do you think about Beck's rally on the anniversary of Rev. King's speech?
