Despite federal employees having been given a “liberal leave” day to attend the ceremonies, only 20,000 total attendees were at the 50th anniversary celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. 100,000 were expected. I’m thinking this says more about today’s black leadership than about King’s legacy.
It is sadly and painfully apparent that Dr. King’s successors have outright ignored his inspiring words:
“And that is something that I must say to my people who stand on the worn threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” Rev. MLK Jr.
Even if you don’t like Rush, this is really worth the time. He makes some very good, very valid points.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” Martin Luther King Jr.
