Quotational Therapy: Part 67-- Martin Luther King, Jr.

MLK-

Hope your MLK day was harmonious. Here's an excerpt of an MLK speech that could fit right into one of President Bush's speeches on the spread of liberty in the world.

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.

Read the entire "I Have A Dream" speech here.

Incidentally, check out what these white people did on their MLK day:

The anti-war group in San Antonio, numbering perhaps two dozen, chanted "Shame" while two Air Force T-1A Jayhawk training jets flew overhead, a first in the event's 20-year history. Later protesters released a pair of white doves.

Members of the group, who were mostly white, also sang protest songs that drowned out speeches from the podium lauding King and his legacy.

Bexar County constables threatened the protesters with eviction from the park for creating a disturbance, while some blacks in the audience shouted them down for intruding on their event.

"Take it to the White House - go tell Bush," yelled Carolyn Webster. "This is Martin Luther King Day. This is about peace and unity."

Phil Schulman, one of the protesters, conceded that the group may have gone too far by interrupting the official program, but he said its message was consistent with King's message.

...The flyover was by members of Randolph Air Force Base's 99th Flying Training Squadron, successor to the first black fighter squadron from the World War II-era Tuskegee Airmen.

Yeah, that's a healthy political coalition (white weirdo liberals and African-Americans) with staying power. Not.
