The argument that Conservatives have now adopted for criticism of America is... If you don't think America is perfect, if you think there's something dark about America's history, if you think there's a fundamental flaw at the core of America... Then you should leave.

Republicans always talk about how much they admire and respect MLK...

MLK who was critical of America
MLK who thought racism was the core of America and White Americans
MLK who thought entire institutions of America should be brought down
MLK who was an avid Socialist and saw it as the fundamental change America needed to make

Soooo... MLK should have GTFO, right?

Freedom of Speech.
You can bash and stomp America to the ground but Lord forbid you say it to someone.....Hahaha....
The old saying " What goes around comes around " "don't spit in the wind " "when the crap hits the fan"

That's what I call dishing out a slice of humble pie.

MLK would judge Omar by her character, and he'd tell her to get out.

You should read history more. When MLK moved his crusades into the northeast and Midwest he was told that most vociferously by the Dailey machine in Chicago.

MLK was trying to heal America, and make it better, not just spew hate for the concept of America and its people. These four clowns hate the founding principles of hard work, freedom, and equal opportunity. These four are COUNTERPRODUCTIVE to any type of healing, or coming together for the purpose of making everyone's lives better.

I don't recall MLK being a racist and bigot.
I don't recall MLK calling the president a "motherf***er" on the floor of congress.
I don't recall MLK hating this nation and working for it's harm.
I don't recall MLK supporting terrorist groups working for the genocide of the Jewish people.


Comparing Ilian Omar to MLK is perhaps the greatest insult to MLK's memory in modern times. It's about as offensive as the "Squad" comparing Israel to the Nazis.

We're not taking about the Daley machine from the 60s. We're taking about American Conservatives today, 60 years later.

Seems to me I remember Obama supporters saying the same thing. If you dont like the ACA you can always leave. In fact anyone dissatisfied with Obama was pretty much invited to leave by his supporters.

Did MLK mock Americans for fearing terrorism?

MLK was not a hater and was born in the USA, unlike the Jihad Squad hater of American Ilhan Omar....even if he was a hater, where would you send him back to?
