Must See Video From Coretta King's Funeral
This is all over the place, but I had to post it. This Crooks and Liars video is from Coretta Scott King's funeral earlier today. Speaking in front of the current president, Reverend Dr. Joseph Lowery said, "She extended Martin's message against poverty, racism and war. She deplored the terror inflicted by our smart bombs on mission way afar. We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there [standing ovation]... but Coretta knew and we know that there are weapons of misdirection right down here. Millions without health insurance. Poverty aounds. For war billions more, but no more for the poor."
President Jimmy Carter said, "It was difficult for them [the King's] then personally with the civil liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of secret government wiretaps."
Of course, conservative talking heads are accusing Reverend Lowery and President Carter of turning the event into a Bush bashing event. Too bad. What they said is true and no one can deny that the King family was anything but politial.
How did W and Laura react to Reverend Lowery's speech?
