RE: dabbling in socialism
So, the answer to the question in the title :
MARTIN LUTHER KING, CONSERVATIVE?,
is NO. He was in fact, a FISCAL liberal.
What about his SOCIAL policies? Would he be for abortion and gay marriage? Being socialist, would he be for tax payer funding of Planned Parenthood and Sandra Fluke’s demands?
It’s difficult to say if his mercurial personality would have gone far enough to embrace that, or if he would have viewed it as undignified. It’s moot; what we have to work with is what he left us with.
