Yep! He was!
Now that I think about it, though, it only makes sense. The Republican party was the party of Abraham Lincoln and Emancipation. The Republican party was the party of Reconstruction.
The Democratic Party grew strong in the South precisely because it opposed those laws and policies imposed on her, after the Civil War, by the Republicans.
George Wallace, governor of Alabama during King’s historic works and the nightmarish school desegregation imposed by Federal Law (I remember watching on CBS News when I was a child) was a Southern Democrat. The Democrats opposed, vehemently, desegregation and other Civil Rights legislation.
What else could King have been, but a Republican?
However, Obama and the Democratic party have made Dr. King their token figurehead as they seek to brainwash blacks and win their votes.
Do you think I’m going to be quiet about this little bit of information? Uh…. no.
