MSNBC Host Suggests Arizona Secede
Main Street Radical ^ | 1/17/2011 | James Devere

Posted on 01/17/2011 4:11:16 PM PST by mainstreetradical.com

In an interview with Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Donny Deutsch used Martin Luther King, Jr. day to interject an opinion that Arizona no longer belongs in America. The assertion is that Arizona does not recognize MLK day and therefore should leave the Union. Sharpton, for his part and as a leader, should know that Arizona has recognized MLK day since 1992 and is the only state to pass the holiday by public vote. Aside from misrepresenting Arizona’s racial history, MSNBC and Rev. Sharpton are misrepresenting Dr. King’s dream. Arizona is a state that believes in the individual, personal responsibility, and achievement by merit. Each of these are ideals that Martin Luther King, Jr. held dear. This is just another attempt by the left to smear Arizonans and a great number of Americans that are beginning to see that Arizona has gotten a few things right.

It’s hard to take MLK Day seriously when today’s black “leaders” ignore most of what MLK dreamed about.

Is MSNBC advocating violence and civil war?

Secession has nothing to do with war. Look the word up. It simply means to leave, especially a religion or political organization.

As usual, the MLK national holiday has been misrepresented by the Democrats and the media, basically, the Left. They portray any opposition to it as racism.

The opposition was not against honoring MLK but against another national holiday for that purpose. A national holiday means closing banks, post offices and all government offices. That is what the unions and the Left wanted.

MLK was just another symbol of deception. It was just one more small step of government interference in our lives and an opportunity to paint us as bad and the Left as good. It is the same thing they do when they say Medicare is for the elderly, welfare is for the poor, unemployment payments are for those who did not win life’s lottery, etc. They use our generosity to subjugate us.
