Will Martin Luther King Get Cancelled Too? By James Reed
This is an interesting speculation in pollical correctness and wokeness. Will the Left need to now cancel Martin Luther King, civil rights superstar himself? If so, who can they go after next? Can they commit wokeness suicide and cancel themselves, or is the business too good?
“Appearing on Steve Malzberg’s weekly Saturday commentary show Eat the Press, civil rights pioneer Bob Woodson lashed out at the radical left, claiming civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s statue would likely be targeted next and if he were alive today he’d be selected for “anti-bias” reeducation.
The show opened with a quote from a recent op-ed Woodson wrote for Fox News where he suggested King would be targeted for “reeducation” by the radical left today:
The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned a just and equitable America, in which citizens treated each other as persons rather than as carriers of an indelible racial imprint. Today, the progressive left has bet against King’s vision… King himself would be called out and targeted for “anti-bias” reeducation if he were alive today.
“Would the BLMs [Black Lives Matter] of the world consider [King] today to be a racist?” Malzberg asked.
Woodson responded by sharing a recent incident where a young white student’s essay was rejected for using Dr. King’s speech as a theme since he “used the word ‘negro’ and therefore it’s offensive to blacks.”
Yes, looks like King, by today’s standards of the radical Left, is racist, just like second generation feminists, who oppose transgenders competing in women’s sport are sexist or whatever.
