Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Liberal Contempt for Martin Luther King's Final Year

King had been a solid supporter of President Lyndon B. Johnson and his Great Society, but he became increasingly concerned about U.S. involvement in Vietnam and, as his concerns became more public, his relationship with the Johnson administration deteriorated. King came to view U.S. intervention in Southeast Asia as little more than imperialism. Additionally, he believed that the Vietnam War

 Vietnam War diverted money and attention from domestic programs created to aid the Black poor. Furthermore, he said, "The war was doing far more than devastating the hopes of the poor at home...We were taking the Black young men who had been crippled by our society and sending them eight thousand miles away to guarantee liberties in Southeast Asia which they had not found in southwest Georgia and East Harlem."

Where have the peacemakers gone? A$$hole warmongers have taken over the think ranks and "independent" media ... bloggers have become followers ... they call it "Patriotism".
