Glenda Beck has told his audiences that King rejected social justice and as usual, Glenda is wrongNtodd found an excerpt from King's 1967 speech, "Where do we go from here":
What I'm saying to you this morning is that Communism forgets that life is individual. Capitalism forgets that life is social, and the Kingdom of Brotherhood is found neither in the thesis of Communism nor the antithesis of capitalism but in a higher synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis that combines the truths of both.
This reminded me of the system Sweden developed in the 1930s to chart a path between Capitalism and Communism. It is still in use.

I'm not sure of the Beck context and don't care to explore it, but King did advocate racial hiring and admission quotas. Whether he would do so now is an open question. But milquetoast "conservatives" who have made their peace with an image often lie about or are unaware of this.
