Re: Baldimo (Post 5426055)
Someone who hates labor unions, opposes affirmative action and votes against voting rights has no place in a rally commemorating Martin Luther King.
This has nothing to do with the color of their skin.
You are absolutely correct and I agree with; however, a poster in this thread had asked if any black Republicans had been invited to speak, to paraphrase.
Anyone can be an ultraconservative, and let us not kid ourselves, our species consist of all types. Yet, in the case of the Tea Party which is a purist ultra-right extremist wing of the Republican Party, their reason for existing is born out of racism for President Obama and sectarianism is their forté! Any Republican attending the MLK event would have been threatened with a primary. A few black Republicans (you can count them on one-two-hands) are willing to be used as a utility in order to satisfy their own craven for personal power. Look at the Unqualified lawn jocky, Clarence Thomas, on the US Supreme Court. He sits there like a bump on a log, too damn scared to open his mouth and a discredit to his predecessor, the honorable Thursgood Marshall.
