Speaking Truth to Power

I'm so happy that someone stood up at Coretta Scott King's funeral and didn't pretend she and her husband were apolitical do-gooders who didn't connect civil rights with other abuses of power and policies of injustice -- they were activists for peace and against economic policies that hurt the poor, but you wouldn't know that from the way their antiwar and progressive activism is downplayed in the mainstream mediasphere.

Reverend Lowery spoke truth to power, shaming Bush and his asshole father as the warmongering, shit-on-the-poor elitists they are.

The Reverend made my day. Let's hope the spineless Dems remember the standing ovation he received for stating unequivocal, passionate truth.
