Monumental Hubris

Martin Luther King died supporting a strike of Memphis garbagemen. He is immortalized in granite by unpaid, nonunion, foreign labor. What's wrong with this picture? A lot more than that, as I write in my column @ Human Events. From rewriting Martin Luther King's words to employing slave labor to construct the memorial, the overseers of the new DC shrine to the civil rights leader miss the point.

In some funny way, the bust on the three dimensional facade of King reminded me of a M.A.S.H. episode where, for his birthday present, one of the command hired a Korean sculptor to do a bust of Col. Potter and the bust had strikingly oriental features.

Same here. Does King not look slightly oriental?

Anyway, Kingís children charging the foundation for the use of their fatherís words and image? What a shocker! There are many people who fit this description in total and they typically have no moral compass and don't see the bigger picture. Their actions make them small.

Hardly a surprise that they would misquote Lincoln when it's always about the Benjamins. Right? Is that why the foundation had to go cheap on labor? May be.

"Martin Luther King had a dream. His children have a scheme."

Great line.

You obviously hate black people.

No, I dislike disingenuous phonies with no moral compass.

But, you can use whatever makes you feel better.

Ok, you hate black people. So does Dan.
