The Keeper of the Flame?

Imagine that prior to his rally at the Lincoln Memorial, Glenn Beck once held a protest in front of a black- owned business. And during that protest he told his supporters that he did not want any black interlopers in this white neighborhood-and one of the protesters proceeded to burn the business down while shooting and killing 7 people.

And after that Beck held a rally at the Lincoln Memorial on the MLK "I Have A Dream" anniversary. And claimed that he as the rightful heir to MLK.

How would the lame stream media react to that?

Cause that is what Sharpton did at Freddy's Fashion Mart.

Funny, I don't remember MLK mentioning "white interlopers" in his speech.

Or the Tea Partiers burnin/lootin & shooting.

Or King slandering a law enforcement official claiming that the guy raped a black child, and that he had DNA evidence to prove it.

And a host of other shit. A host.

But I saw Sharpton do it.

And he is the "go to guy" when it comes to the lame stream media for black issues?

He holds the key to the MLK legacy?

He is the gatekeeper?

It would be like letting Benedict Arnold decide who the appropriate person is to celebrate George Washington.

Is it any wonder that the media is held in contempt by so many?
