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.
