Bayard Rustin, the Civil Rights Movement's very-gay Chief Strategist, and MLK
Wow: Sarah Palin's ignorant ramblings about how "our original civil rights freedom fighters are rolling in their graves over the backward steps we’ve taken lately" have probably turned out to be true, now that Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and the Duggars reportedly got together to sign a Rick Scarborough petition - advocating anti-gay discrimination "in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King." How that works (in the minds of Palin and/or the rest) is anybody's guess, but I do know what exists as a conservative affliction: Those representing King's opposition - in contemporary times - imagining, and proclaiming, he'd be on their side.
Look, lying's in the Right's blood. It's left over from slavery. It's how they rationalized the horrors they were committing to themselves. And they still need justifications for what they do today - though they don't have niggas.
Don't be surprised if they all start claiming they're black soon,...
