Martin Luther King Jr. was a well-educated man, with a B.A. in Sociology from Morehouse College, a B. Div. from Crozer Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Boston University (despite having been found to have plagiarized portions of his dissertation).
If Dr. King were alive today, he would be weeping at the willful ignorance, socialist sense-of-entitlement, and sheer avarice of his followers.
On Wednesday, August 28, 2013, at a rally commemorating the 50th anniversary of MLK’s March on Washington, know-nothing participants have concocted a new Bill of Rights, claiming that jobs, Internet access, car, condoms, and syringes (to shoot dope) as their rights.

Condoms, clean syringes, and a job are among the rights guaranteed to young people and college aged Americans by the U.S. Constitution, said some attendees at Wednesday’s 50th anniversary March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
“Transportation is a right as much as education or having a job is a right,” a Howard University student told Campus Reform at the rally on Wednesday. People who who do not live near public transit also have a right to a car, she added.
Almost all participants interviewed agreed that the Constitution guarantees the right to a job.
“It’s not a privilege,” said another student. “Not a privilege. It is a right. It’s not a driver’s license. It is a right.”
“Everyone has the right to a job,” another said. “I don’t care if you’re college, high school, you dropped out, or whatever.”
Another attendee, a representative of the organization Helping Individual Prostitutes Survive (HIPS), stated that all individuals had the right to free condoms and clean syringes.
Other “rights” cited by the attendees including the right to smoke marijuana and the right to Internet access.
MLK supporters have perverted his “I have a dream” into “I have a scheme” to fleece taxpayers.
God help us!
