Now you’ve also assassinated him intellectually.

You’ve left out MLK’s commitment to non- violence:

You also forgot his signature “I have a Dream” speech:

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. . . . I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today”

He was opposed to the Vietnam War. He was organizing for economic opportunity. But in no way was he a proponent of identity politics or reverse racism or the oppressive political correctness of modern day Progressive ideologues. He was a champion of integration and equal opportunity. He marched surrounded by American flags and people of other races and religions who supported the cause of Civil Rights.

Your piece was an incredible sacrilege to the memory of a noble man who drew together Black and White to an ideal and helped to move the nation to adopt Civil Rights laws.
