John Edwards, Memorial Day & Martine L. King, Jr.
Candidate John Edwards encouraged his followers to misuse Memorial Day, 2007 to protest, with signs and actions, the war against terrorism now being waged in Iraq. No doubt the usual suspects in the media and his Party will defend that violation of a most sacred day as an exercise in democratic freedoms. I wonder if the same reaction would be had if some white sheeted KKK clowns would misuse Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to parade about with signs reading "BACK TO SLAVERY", "SEGREGATION FOREVER" and such other like insults.
