RUSH: James in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, welcome, sir, nice to have you with us.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. I have a question for you about Martin Luther King.
CALLER: If he were alive today, and assuming — I guess this question assumes he would vote Democratic — who do you think he would support for president?
RUSH: I haven’t the foggiest idea. That’s not possible to know. But I can say with relative confidence that if you listen to the things Martin Luther King said, not just in his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, but the things he said outside that speech and all the other appearances, things he was fighting for, he would be outraged today to see what has become of the black family. He would be outraged to see what has become of the Democrat Party and the way it is pandering and treating black voters in this country. I think it’s safe to assume that he would be outraged that people like Shelby Steele, Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice, and Colin Powell, others of profound career achievement would be ridiculed, destroyed, or attempted to be destroyed. I think he’d be outraged. So I don’t know that it’s safe to assume he would be a Democrat today. As to whom he would be supporting, it’s impossible to hazard a guess on something like that. The other stuff that I said, I stand by firmly.
