If you don't think he'd be a member of either party, per se, then explain which one he'd be closer to and support more often, and why.

Thanks

Theres probably an argument to be made that maybe he would maybe not want affiliate with either party in any official capacity, but there is no doubt that he would be aligned with the Democrats over the Republicans

Neither. He was an open socialist so he'd be disgusted by both parties.

He was a socialist and was to the left of Democrats entirely. The Republicans are the same people he was fighting back then.

Either a member of the progressive wing of the Dems or neither.

Neither. He was highly critical of capitalism and US imperialism, and had unprecedented ability to mobilize the Black working class. Slandering and neutralizing him as a threat would be a bipartisan effort.

MLK would be rejected as a commie by all but other socialists, who would reject him as a class reductionist

He’s be an independent that pragmatically votes democrat… it’s ridiculous to think he’d be or support Republicans

He said he likely would've voted for JFK again. He would've been to the left, but does anyone really think he wouldn't work with the Clintons in the 90s or praise Obama as a historical achievement?
