The ACLU has compared Martin Luther King, one of the bravest and most admired Americans, to the Taliban, Al Qaeda and terrorists in general. In a full page ad they compared the illegal surveillance of MLK by partisan politicains to the surveillance of known or highly suspected terrorists overseas
The ad invokes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the civil rights pioneer who was an innocent victim of illegal government wiretapping and draws the correlation between abuse of government power and illegal warrantless wiretapping authorized by President Bush.
I understand the ACLU is rabidly anti-Bush and suffering from severe BDS, but we cannot allow them to associate Martin Luther King with some Osama Bin Laden. The good reverend abhored violence as a means to political ends. And Bin Laden and Al Qaeda are the moral opposite of what King stood for.
This smearing of this good man’s name must end!
Stop The ACLU has a proper tribute to MLK
