MLK and speaking truth to power in 2012

This is a must-watch, and needs to go viral. Law professor Sherrilyn Ifill tells the truth about Dr. Martin Luther King and his views, and destroys Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Kleefisch in person, without needing to call them out. Check out the video, and notice how exhausted Walker looks. Having come back from Vegas, I know that look well, and it's the mark of someone doing too much jetting off to multiple places to continue to close on slimy corporate cash instead of staying home, being ethical, and DOING YOUR JOB.

I also like the parts where she mentions Dr. King's work against housing segregation and having to deal with vicious white racism in the North in the mid-to-late '60s. Politicians like Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch and radio talk hosts like Charles Sykes and Mark Belling owe their careers to the resentments of the type of people who would have thrown rocks at Dr. King, and they approve of keeping America a two-tier society of "us versus them," instead of the inclusive and fair society Dr.King envisioned.

Thank you, Professor Ifill, for exposing the truth about what MLK believed in. MLK died supporting STRIKING PUBLIC SECTOR UNION WORKERS, and he would be leading rallies to remove slime like Walker. Notice that the biggest cheers came from Prof. Ifill's mention of Dr. King's support of union rights, and marches against voter suppression and other restrictions. That wasn't coincidental in the slightest.
