Today has been a day off from work, and a day to remember a great man who gave his life for the cause of Equality and Justice. It is sad to see how many RWNJ NAZIs try to corrupt Dr. King’s message to try and justify their own warped and hate-filled views. However, it is a testament to the legacy of Dr. King and what he stood for that they even attempt to do this in the first place. If Dr. King had not spoken out and become the universal symbol for hope, then they would never dare to mention his name. In that sense, Dr. King has reached his enemies with love rather than hate. All they can do is to try and change his message to suit their own needs and this is always tragically funny and sad.
I believe that is more important than ever to remember what Dr. King said, and what he fought against because the old demons are coming back in full force. We have a NAZI who will become our leader, someone who represents those who always objected to Dr. King’s message of Hope, Love and Equality. It is up to each and every one of US to carry his message forward.
Never forget that Dr. King died for what he believed in. Never forget that Dr. King was MURDERED by those who support the NAZI we face today. We must resist using the example of Dr. King and honor his memory each and every day, not just once a year.
