#1 Did the Shake Down Artist forget this message when he uttered the Hymietown perjorative?

#2 Recent studies actually back up Mr. King's statement. It turns out that mild anti-Zionism is the gateway drug to unapologetic rabid antisemitism. See a href=>this epidemiology-style study for details.

#3 Let's try that again.

Recent studies actually back up Mr. King's statement. It turns out that mild anti-Zionism is the gateway drug to unapologetic rabid antisemitism. See Anti-Israel Sentiment Predicts Anti-Semitism in Europe published in 2006 in the Journal of Conflict Resolution for details.

The research in this article shines a different, statistical light on this question: based on a survey of 500 citizens in each of 10 European countries, the authors ask whether those individuals with extreme anti-Israel views are more likely to be anti-Semitic. Even after controlling for numerous potentially confounding factors, they find that anti-Israel sentiment consistently predicts the probability that an individual is anti-Semitic, with the likelihood of measured anti-Semitism increasing with the extent of anti-Israel sentiment observed.

Jesse Jetstream can ignore King now that King is dead. King's death was very convenient for a lot of hacks who would like to claim his mantle, despite the fact that the content of their character is questionable indeed.

#5 Martin Luther King, Jr., was a man of conviction. Jesse Jackass is a man strongly in need of being convicted. I respect MLK - I have NO respect for Jesse Jackass or any of his spawn. You can also add Louis Farrakan and Al Sharpton to the list along with JJ.

#6 MLK Jr had his failings (as do I/we all). I respect his sacrifice and committment, and deplore what was done with his "be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. ..." theme. He would power a small city with his grave spinning if able to see Monica Conyers, Maxine Waters, Dollar Bill Jefferson, et al
