The King of Love is dead

On this Martin Luther King Day it is good to remember the unseemly truth behind the pompous posturing. All the inflated homage to the "I have a dream" secretly veils the real relief of our public officials who thank their gods that there remains no seer, prophet or revolutionary thinker left that can match the vision and the strategic intelligence of the man who called out the conscience of a nation and died at the hands of our government for his trouble. 

(I'm not kidding about this. it is an established fact that King died at least partially as a result of actions on the part of agents or agencies of the US federal government.) 

Like Christ, before the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoevsky's Brothers Karamazov, if King returned today, the leaders of our present racist, warmongering administration would kill him again.

I have no doubt that Obama would be the first in line to fire the first shot.  He can legally do it now in broad daylight without fear of censure.

 King clearly will always be an inspiration to those who are enemy combatants against evil everywhere.  We cannot suffer such a man to live.

Turnbull & Trudeau anti-BDS & pro-Apartheid Israel
