I think we should seriously consider renaming Martin Luther King Day to the Left Wing Idiot Day. On this day in which Martin Luther King was to be remembered and honored, the Left Wing, Democratic, Nuts spewed a treasure trove of outrageous comments.
New Orleans, Mayor Ray Nagin: "This city will be a majority African American city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have New Orleans no other way. It wouldn't be New Orleans." So if you are White, Hispanic, or Asian you are not welcomed to live in New Orleans? This sure sounds racist to me. This is from a black mayor speaking on Martin Luther King Day? Here's more: "Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country," "Surely he doesn't approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We're not taking care of ourselves." Hey, this is not how God works. Mayor Nagin, maybe you should spend some time reading the Bible. I highly recommend Romans, Chapter 3.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton: Said that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives was run like a plantation. Ummm, Senator Clinton, you might want to check out the history of your own party. They are the one's that owned those plantations, stood in front of the school doors, whose member is a former grand wizard of the KKK. Meanwhile, Republicans ended slavery in the United states and have as current role models, Colin Powell and Condi Rice (Condi '08!). She then said that Bush was the worst President in history. This is a woman who's husband is running around looking for a legacy and is trying to rewrite his Presidential history. President Clinton is going to be remember with a cigar and a little blue dress.
Al Gore: Accused President Bush of "breaking the law repeatedly and persistently" and that Congress should hold hearings into "serious allegations of criminal behavior on the part of the President." What a hypocritical, blow-hard. He, as Vice-President, participated in the same things he's accusing the President of doing. See here and here.
This is what President Bush spoke about:
"At the dawn of this new century, America can be proud of the progress we have made toward equality, but we all must recognize we have more to do. (Applause.) The reason to honor Martin Luther King is to remember his strength of character and his leadership, but also to remember the remaining work. The reason to honor Mrs. Parks is not only to pay homage to her strength of character, but to remember the ideal of active citizenship."
Now, who was more respectful of Martin Luther King?
