Two years ago I referred to MLK Day as “If Martin Luther King Were Alive Today Day.”
Every year on MLK Day, the news media, pundits, university professors and opinion writers spend their time telling us exactly what Martin Luther King would think about whatever story or event is currently in the news.
Do an internet search on the phrase “What would Martin Luther King say” or “What would Martin Luther King think” and you’ll see what I mean.
Over the last few years, we’ve gotten a heaping helping of “think” pieces from the smart set on “What MLK would say about Donald Trump.”
It’s as if these folks view MLK as some kind of Magic 8-Ball or Ouija board.
They conjure up opinions out of thin air based, not on reality, but wishful thinking.
And this year is no different.
Today we’re getting breathless outrage over the fact that Virginia gun owners have descended on that state’s capital for a Second Amendment March.
And the Left is rushing to their MLK Magic 8-Ball to tell us exactly how Martin Luther King would feel about “his day” being disrespected ….
…by a large civil rights march.
Ironic, ain’t it?
