The Joe Buck Disgusting Act of The Week: MLK Would Have LOVED Our Aweome Modern Wars

Sweet Jesus, why would the Pentagon even go there:
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2011 – If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today, would he understand why the United States is at war?

Jeh C. Johnson, the Defense Department’s general counsel, posed that question at today’s Pentagon commemoration of King’s legacy.

In the final year of his life, King became an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, Johnson told a packed auditorium. However, he added, today’s wars are not out of line with the iconic Nobel Peace Prize winner’s teachings.

“I believe that if Dr. King were alive today, he would recognize that we live in a complicated world, and that our nation's military should not and cannot lay down its arms and leave the American people vulnerable to terrorist attack,” he said.
So a man who preached and lived by non-violent teachings, who was under the threat of (and then victim of) terrorist plots for the majority of his life, would be cool with this what we're doing in Afganistan, you know, because of... terrorism.

Oh yeah, and unlike when Dr. King lived, during an era when a race of people WERE NOT TREATED AS HUMAN BEINGS, this is a "complicated world", so he would understand.

Man this is some shameful shit...

  1. Um...

    Switch the words "Vietnam" and "Afghanistan" in this speech, and then tell me this doesn't still apply:

    If they're going to use peace prize winners to support their war, how about they use Obama. He got his peace prize FOR conducting the war.
