For taking a stand and marching with Martin Luther King Jr., does Heston deserve "the love and thanks of man and woman"? You might say that only time will tell, but how much time has to expire before some on the left in this country acknowledge that Heston believed in liberty, whether it be for a black man to have equal access to success, or any man or woman, black or white, or any other color, to have the freedom to possess firearms. He was consistent; he believed in freedom.

What? You never knew that Charlton Heston marched with King when it was not the thing to do? When it was not necessarily a good thing for ones acting career? I guess since he was the President of the NRA for an unprecedented five years, all that he did back in the sixties for civil rights has been swept under the rug by the mainstream media. And that is exactly why I have put this video up; to clear his name and educate people on what kind of a man Heston was despite what the fat between his ears documentary film maker says. I will not mention his name, as he is not worth the ink on this page, or I guess I should say that he is not worth the bytes on this page.

Heston will always be number one in my book as far as actors go. I'm not saying that he was the best actor, but he sure did good things for his country. I will always be grateful for what he did for the NRA back in some of their darker days. He basically came to their rescue. He put his prestige and reputation on the line to once again fight for freedom! But I don't think he thought of it in that way. I think he just thought that he was doing what was right and what had to be done, no matter the consequence. He gave the last of his good years in the cause of freedom, and that is why he should always have, "the love and thanks of man and woman."
