They came in tens of thousands to hear their leader speak in the heart of Washington, thronging the mall in front of the Lincoln Memorial, hanging on words dedicated to freedom and struggle.

That was the scene 47 years ago when Martin Luther King gave his famous "I have a dream" speech that came to define the triumphs of the civil rights era and the fight to overcome racial prejudice.

It was also the scene yesterday as rightwing Fox News host Glenn Beck spoke at his "Restoring Honour" rally, stirring up a huge crowd of supporters, most of whom adhered to the beliefs of the conservative Tea Party movement.

It was clearly more than just a half a century that separated the two events and two men; there was also a massive political chasm. Beck, a controversial figure who has said Barack Obama is a racist who hates white culture, has claimed his rally is non-political and that the timing of it with King`s anniversary was an accident. But few take him at his word.

Beck`s television show, radio programme and speaking tours are constantly devoted to the idea that Obama and senior Democrats are closet socialists, or even communists, dedicated to forcibly transforming America into a leftwing society.
