His Majesty Speaks

Forty-five years ago today, Martin Luther King Jr. gave one of the most moving and inspiring speeches in American history, one that cut to the core of what it means to be an American, namely that all of us are created equal, that we should be treated equally before the law, and that we should be judged not by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character. He gave this speech, after he and his followers marched all the way to the federal capitol, in front of the Lincoln Memorial, a monument to a man who not only ended the curse of slavery that held this nation in it’s grip since it’s inception, but also held this country together with his bare hands through the most trying time in it’s history. One great man speaking in front of the monument to another great man, who is rightfully considered to be the greatest President that this country has ever seen.

Now flash forward forty five years, and we have a narcissistic socialist thug with delusions of godhood, who apparently wants to be judged by the color of his skin, seeing as how the content of his character is so lacking, speaking down to us poor unwashed masses in front of what he says is supposed to be the Lincoln Memorial, but looks more like Caesar’s Palace minus the slot machines. How far have we fallen?

What a sham. A totally manufactured moment. I hope McCain wipes the floor with this poser. And I don’t even like McCain.
