The Morning Briefing: Democrats Have Long Perverted MLK's Legacy

Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Tuesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. “Three Tenors in a Kayak” was Chevy Chase’s worst-ever adult film musical.


I’m never really aware of the federal holidays because I don’t have a real — aka “normal” — job. I did for a brief while after I got divorced but I have mentally blocked out most of that time of my life.

Yesterday was meant to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a truly great American.

Sadly, a great many of those who invoke Dr. King’s name are leftists who pervert his message to the point of spitting on his grave. Dr. King gave his life in the hope that the United States would one day be a colorblind Republic.

Democrats had other plans.

Many American institutions are now being held hostage by a hyperfocus on race that would almost surely have Dr. King shaking his finger from the great beyond. In King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech he said, “I have a dream that my four little 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.”

Today’s Democrats — who purport to be the true political heirs to King’s mission — would have us parse everything by skin color.

Joe Biden — who purports to be the president of this great land — decided back in 2020 to use the George Floyd/Black Lives Matter riots to provide one of the worst hot takes ever.

Matt reminded us about it yesterday:

It’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2022. I’m still waiting for Joe Biden to make an official statement to commemorate the day. It hasn’t come yet, so for now, I’ll simply remind our readers what Joe Biden said in 2020 when he compared and contrasted the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 to the death of George Floyd.

“Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said during a teleconference in Philadelphia.


“Impact” can be measured in many ways. History will no doubt prove that Dr. King’s assassination was far more impactful than that of the multiply-convicted ex-con George Floyd. Biden was simply using the modern-day Democrat playbook and ignoring the real history of King’s legacy to score a political point with the crazies.

I was a very young child when Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated and the impact of it lasts to this day. I remember the shock on the faces of all of the adults around me. It was an emotionally devastating time around the world, and it’s an embarrassment that the current President of the United States not too long ago denigrated it the way he did.

Dr. King’s all-too-short life was incredibly intense and fascinating. Historian Taylor Branch wrote a trilogy about it that won the Pulitzer Prize. If you read nothing else about King, I highly recommend reading at least the first volume of Branch’s work, Parting the Waters: America in the King Years 1954-63.

King’s legacy is far too important to be left to the ahistorical Democrats who are now trying to turn this country into a one-party dictatorship.

Thankfully, those of us who the Democrats are always calling racist truly aspire to a society where people are only judged by the content of their character.
