If Dr. King was still around...?

What would he say about the BLM movement of 2020?

What would he say about Covid-19 pandemic and crisis?

I am curious about this. Please help. Thank you.

I doubt that it would be anything good.

BLM's fundamental message is that police officers should not be permitted to defend themselves when a black person murders them.

That seems contrary to the message of peaceful equality that Dr. King espoused.

@JGoldman10,
It is pointless to ponder what he might have said. None of us have any idea what he might have said.

@CoastalRat,
I was being hypothetical.

King probably wouldn't like BLM. BLM advocates the LGQBTIA agenda.

Why do you think he'd be opposed to (what you refer to as) the "LGQBTIA agenda"? Aren't they victims of discrimination and oppression?

He'd probably be defending Jill Biden's right to refer to herself as "Dr.".

@hightor,
He might not have opposed BLM's gay rights agenda.

But I'm sure he'd be against BLM's cop-killing agenda.

@JGoldman10,
He probably wouldn’t like you, your use of the n word and demonisation of African Americans darker than you isn’t something Dr King would ever approve of.

@izzythepush,
"Disapproving of someone's actions" and "not liking them" are two different things.

I suspect that Dr. King disapproved of behavior without actually disliking people.

Is there controversy about this? I just checked and it looks like she does have an accredited doctoral degree.

If Dr King was alive today you would want to shoot him.

@oralloy,
That’s what happens when you don’t follow mainstream news.

Certain right wing pundits have attacked Dr Biden’s use of the term because she is not a medical doctor.

It’s not a lie, it’s an opinion.

That’s stupid even by your low standards.

@izzythepush,
I agree that your opinion is stupid, but that would be your low standards.

Unlike you I have high standards.

PBS is very much mainstream news.

They've never been caught lying like the BBC has.

A comeback worthy of a preschooler.

Don’t try to be clever, it’s not you.

I gave you the response that you deserved.

My IQ is 170. I do clever just fine.

Now that’s a lie.

Can you see the difference?

You and the BBC are the only liars here. I always tell the truth.

So that would be a no.

Can’t say I’m surprised.
