Rep. Allen West said that Martin Luther King Jr. would not have supported the movement in a interview Tuesday with conservative media outlet Newsmax,.
Rep. West rejected President Obama‘s and Bernice King’s comparisons of the Occupy Wall Street movement to Martin Luther King Jr’s vision.
“Martin Luther King Jr. would not have backed these types of protesters. He had a focus, a message. He was divinely inspired. I don’t know what the inspiration is for these individuals,” West said.
