The man is an amazing political orator. He was giving a political speach, not a speach about history and he knew exactly what he was doing. He is using inference as a speaking strategy and is directly connecting King's struggle for civil rights to the objectives of his own political agenda.
Thus he was drawing a direct connection between himself and King.
Now he did not come out and say "I'm just like Martin Luther King". No, what he did was far more sophisticated and insidious.

Oddly enough, just the other day my friend spotted an odd bowling ball at the alley. At first glance, the front indicated that it was probably some commemorative Civil Rights / MLK / etc.
