HPers Speak for MLK

In a contemptible but unsurprising turn of events, HPers responded to Douglas Anthony Cooper's article about Martin Luther King's remarks on anti-Zionism. Rather than taking the article to heart and reevaluating their prejudices, some HPers decided that while MLK may have said that when people attack Zionism they are being anti-Semitic, he would have changed his mind since then. Here's some examples:




I'd like to think most people of conscience would think twice before speaking on behalf of someone else, much less someone who is passed away, much less a legendary person from American history, much less about a controversial issue. We see here that for that is not something of much concern for these HPers.

  1. My favourite MLK quote:
    “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
    Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
