He gave his dream speech at the monument of a white supremacist who headed an organization with the stated goal of removing all colored people from the USA. That was pretty great in co-opting a white supremacist president to the principles of racial equality.

As I was listening to his last speech in Memphis on Democracy Now this morning, Bill, I wondered: Was King a mystic? What do you think?

Funny you mention the word mystic. I struggled with finding a word that would connote a spiritual presence within the title. Couldn't come-up with something so I went with the word man. LOVE how the word mystic really fits here. Thank you for your input.

I'd have thought he'd have called himself a Christian?

He was a dreamer.
Can’t you read the poster?

Don’t the PC news sources say that Trump hates dreamers?

I thought it said Southern Baptist Church.

The Trumpette is like Bill in a sense, he hates whatever last past through on his interweebling ventures.

Here is the short version of the "I have a dream speech"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vDWWy4CMhE

The author suggests that the speech was provoked by a mystical experience.

You know what?

Since they say Trump hates dreamers, and since MLK was a dreamer, that means Trump hates MLK.

But who cares really.
