Dems turn King’s dream into a looney nightmare

The following commentary is “Clem Kadiddlehopper approved”.

There’s nothing more sickening than Democrats on Martin Luther King Jr. day. Seriously.

That slimy crud that you have to pressure wash out of the bottom of your garbage can every few weeks smells like roses compared to the bilge spewed by the race-baiting demagogues and rank-and-bile dry-humpers of the Emancipation Proclamation that ooze forth every MLK day.

For starters, take New Orleans Governor Ray Nagin. The mayor said that New Orleans should remain a “chocolate” city. That shouldn’t be a problem. New Orleans was a majority black city before the hurricane, and people are moving back in– we already know that Nagin is opposed to busing— so Nagin should get his wish.

Now Nagin says that God is mad at America:

On MLK day, Nagin said that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and other storms were a sign that “God is mad at America” and at black communities, too, for tearing themselves apart with violence and political infighting.

“Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it’s destroyed and put stress on this country.”

… not to mention certain mayors who are in way over their heads, and we’re not just talking about water. Ray’s big concern shouldn’t be whether or not God is mad at America, but how angry voters are at Nagin.

God sure is busy these days. He sent hurricanes to destroy America, and then he went off to give Ariel Sharon a stroke. How come some of the same people who think Pat Roberton is crazy nod in agreement when Ray Nagin says God sent hurricanes because He is angry at America? What, God can whip up enough wind and rain to nearly wipe out an entire state, but he can’t pop an artery in somebody’s head?

Nagin then went on to have an imaginary conversation with Martin Luther King Jr. Hopefully Nagin later consumed vast quantities of no-so-imaginary Thorazine.

Hillary Clinton was also out in force today. Whenever it’s MLK day, some white liberal politician has to use the word “plantation”… it’s in the rulebook. Liberal elitists know “dat ‘plantation’ is da only word dat dem peopelz unda-stands, boss!”

“When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation, and you know what I’m talking about,” Clinton, D-N.Y., told the crowd at the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem. “It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard.”

Speaking to a group of Hurricane Katrina evacuees in the audience, Clinton offered an apology “on behalf of a government that left you behind, that turned its back on you.” Her remarks were met with thunderous applause.

Hillary, as a member of the government that “left them behind”, appropriately enough then turned her back and walked away. I’ve got ten bucks that next year Queen Carpetbagger will somehow work in the word “massah” in her speech.

Last, but certainly least, Al Gore freed himself from the bondage of his straight-jacket on MLK day to spout off about the fact that he’ll never be president. Yawn.

Al compared Bush’s wiretapping to how MLK was wiretapped in the hopes that anyone was dumb enough to believe that the two situations were comparable in the least. Fittingly enough, Gore left out the fact that it was Ted Kennedy’s brother, Robert Kennedy, who ordered the FBI to wiretap King’s phone.

Gore has a habit of not only comparing apples and oranges, but mashing them together to make an “applanges” and “orples”.

Al Gore is the “Apollo 13” of presidential candidates– with the exception of never having made it back to earth after his failed attempt to land on the planetoid Oval Office.

For eight years, Gore defended his lying, adulterous boss while watching his wife, Tipper, slap parental warning stickers everywhere except where they belonged – on Bill Clinton’s pants. Now Gore’s taken it upon himself to be some sort of “ethics czar” while giving speeches that sound as if he’s trying to perform Nikita Kruschev’s greatest hits on Karaoke Night at the nuthouse.

Somewhere, Martin Luther King Jr. may be looking down and wondering why his wonderful “dream” is being interrupted by so many jerks.
