Conservatives Have Dreams Too!

This being the 50th Anniversary of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s “I Have a Dream” speech, conservatives are in full bull goose loony mode.  Conservatives make laughable claims about King being a conservative (these depend on conflating “Republican” and “Conservative”, and completely ignoring The Southern Strategy, which encouraged racist southern whites to flee the Democratic Party into the warm embrace of the GOP) and making false assumptions about what King really believed.  Black conservatives claim that liberals are appropriating King’s legacy while remaining silent about a white lunatic ham-fistedly trying to appropriate it.  Conservatives tend to get even stupider than usual when confronting MLK’s legacy.

This year, we have some extra-stupid conservative proclamations… you see, conservatives have dreams too!  America’s Dead Beat Dad, Joe Walsh dreams that black males won’t do what he himself did unapologetically.  Jonah Goldberg dreams that he has something relevant to say about King.  Perhaps the craziest dream of all is Laura Ingraham’s dream in which Representative John Lewis’ speech is silenced by gunfire (of course, John Lewis bled for the civil rights movement, and faced numerous death threats, so this “proxy assassination” is nothing new).

Of course, the Conservative dreams are a nightmare to others, but at least they dream, much like Cthulhu

How about scrubbing those nasty Conservative dreams from your brain?  How about a listen to MLK’s speech, the most memorable portion of which was delivered extemporaneously inspired in part by a spirited performance by Gospel great Mahalia Jackson?


Here’s Mahalia’s song, as an added bonus:

Jonah Goldberg dreams that he has something relevant to say about King.

It must be nice to have a job where you can endlessly reiterate things other, crazier people have said and get paid for it.

(So you don’t have to click, it’s just that old “The one line from the speech that I remember proves that King was on my side” crap that gets dragged out every year around this time)

National Review has their annual canard about how the civil rights movement was “conservative”.  I left a comment with excerpts from actual 1950s and 60s National Review editorials.  I don’t think they’ll like it.

Well done, BBBB.

Well done, BBBB.

Thanks, old chum!

For the record, my comment at NRO’s lying post, quoting National Review commentary from the 1960s and 70s was deleted.  Conservatives sure love to shove things down the memory hole… Orwell’s head would spin.

The only thing that the Doughy Pantload ever has to say that is relevant to anything comes out of the other end of his alimentary canal.
