Read this, if you get a chance. According to the Leftist Web site that archived this speech, Time magazine at the time called it "demagogic slander that sounded like a script for Radio Hanoi." The Washington Post said King had "diminished his usefulness to his cause, his country, his people."

There are a lot of people who deserve a statue before MLK. How about John Adams for crying out loud? James Madison for goodness sake! Both of these men deserve to be there more perhaps than even Jefferson, much less MLK or FDR. In the ultimate oddity, we don’t even have a statue of Washington!
