Disgraceful Farewell

Apparently the Left didn’t learn from the Wellstone “memorial”. In fact, they’ve gone beyond “memorials” and used the occasion of the Funeral for Coretta Scott King, complete with casket, to launch their attacks against W.

The outspoken Rev. Joseph Lowery said,

"She extended Martin's message against poverty, racism and war. She deplored the terror inflicted by our smart bombs on missions way afar. We know now that there were no weapons of mass destruction over there,"

The mostly black crowd applauded, then rose to its feet and cheered in a two-minute-long standing ovation.

But Coretta knew, and we know," Lowery continued, "That there are weapons of misdirection right down here," he said, nodding his head toward the row of presidents past and present. "For war, billions more, but no more for the poor!" The crowd again cheered wildly.

Then the most abject failure ever to inhabit the Oval Office started flapping his gums: "It was difficult for them [the Kings] then personally with the civil liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of secret government wiretaps." The crowd cheered as Bush, under fire for a secret wiretapping program he ordered after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, again smiled weakly.

These people have no shame, no decorum, and no dignity.

Jimmy Carter is a classless jerk who doesn’t deserve the respect due a former President. I wish this southern bumpkin would crawl back into the peanut shell from whence he came.

As for Rev. Lowrey, he of all people should have refrained from turning the funeral of a civil rights hero into an opportunity to take cheap shots at the President. And a-holes like him wonder why W refuses to attend the annual NAACP convention. He’s either a complete idiot or thinks the rest of us are.

I’m surprised no one accused the President of killing Mrs. King. I’m sure the idea was discussed.

Today’s disgusting display is yet another example of how the Democrats continue to sink deeper and deeper into a hole they cannot dig themselves out of.

Like the Muslims rioting over a series of cartoons, the Democrats are exposing their true identity to the world. They are a loathsome lot who seek only to grab and hold power, and they don’t give a damn who they trample to get it.
