Coretta King and the Democrats who revise history

This is in the “are you kidding me?” dept Coretta Scott King

We had the funeral for, Coretta Scott King, the wife of Martin Luther King Jr. yesterday. Her life was a continuation of the legacy left by her husband.

What is amazing to me is instead of recognizing her and her achievements the “radical” liberals…. (Notice the insert of “radical” liberals) used this platform to condemn and speak out against “political” issues. Yes, I agree that Coretta Scott King’s life was one of great political achievements… but this was not about her achievements, but about people like Jimmy Carter (who I respected greatly until lately) and his allusion to wire tapping today in fighting terrorist and the wire tapping that was ordered by DEMOCRAT BOBBY KENNEDY as they spied on Martin Luther King Jr. I find it sickening that that was left out. It seems Jimmy has the same selective memory that his Buddy Teddy Kennedy has about who and what the Democrats did as they stood not for… but against equal right of blacks in the 60’s!

I found it distasteful for the Rev. Joseph Lowery who felt it appropriate to focus on Iraq during Mrs. King’s funeral. His comments “She deplored the terror inflicted by our smart bombs on missions way afar. We know now that there were no weapons of mass destruction over there, but Coretta knew, and we know, that there are weapons of misdirection right down here.” were fine.. But as he continues it was clear that he was not against the war… but President Bush.

In all I think President Bush did a great job in not retaliating. Also, this could be an eye opener for him as to how to COMMUNICATE better with the American public as to what is going on.

It is sad that all of this politics had to be done… to tarnish such a great figure in history’s funeral. I just can’t imagine knowing that Martin Luther King Jr’s position of passivism that people would use the rhetoric of say, Malcolm X’s language at Coretta’s funeral.

i think they didn't want him there. It was not only NOT his crowd, it was the antithesis of HIS crowd. So i think they just took the chance to brow beat him face to face.

And i did not know that about Ted kennedy. That guy is a blistering storm of Dog Crap. I would consider myslef liberal, and I can't stand that guy.

what a bafoon.

Here's the thing...

Jimmy carter was segregationalist..... At the time of MLK

He also was into covert operations... ask the dead pilots of the helicopters crashed on rout to Beruit.

Jimmy also seemed to call God (Bush) a racist because Katrina hit mostly black people... it was how he phrased it that it comes across as God... but he meant Bush.

Lyndon Johnson... Dem Pres did not attend the funeral of MLK.

And this was about the time Teddy went swimming with his date.
