The blatant demagoguery of the liberal left over seemingly every topic is beyond ridiculous at this point. The latest being the aforementioned funeral for Coretta Scott King.
I will give the democrats one thing, they always know their audience and yesterday was a great example. Jimmy Carter made this remark during his bloviating speech: “difficult for them then personally with the civil liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of secret government wiretaps.” Of course that drew a hearty round of applause and then strangely enough Ted Kennedy came up to speak and he too drew applause.
Perhaps it was lost on the crowd that Ted is the brother of Robert who was the Attorney General who authorized those very wiretaps on the Kings.
As to the good Dr. Lowery he’s on record saying (in 1996): “We have never stopped believing for a moment that there was some government complicity in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” At the same conference, Lowery claimed the CIA was selling cocaine in black neighborhoods. “This is a new and worse form of slavery: chemical warfare in the form of drugs. It’s worse than anything Saddam Hussein has done.”
So again, if he thinks the government was in on King’s assassination that would mean it was the Kennedy administration behind it and if the CIA was selling coke to black kids that would be the Clinton administrations doing. Yet he took no shots at the Kennedy’s or the Clinton’s yesterday.
