Patriotism Gone Astray
Thousands of white faces, some toting The Stars And Stripes, have gathered this morning to desecrate the memorial to perhaps our greatest President. Their intent ostensibly is to take back the civil rights movement. Take back from whom? African-Americans of course! They forget that the civil rights movement is all about rights; rights that belong to all Americans , regardless of color or ethnicity. There are no rights to take back. They were never lost. These "patriots" have been corralled by a con artist, Glenn Beck, who has a political toilet for a mouth. If this is patriotism I feel sorry for the future of this country. The worse of America is on display at the Lincoln Memorial. Shame on Glenn Beck! Shame on the Palinistas who have joined him! As someone once said, " and this too shall pass".
