Wonder what you would find if you frisked Martha Coakley’s speech earlier this morning at the 2010 Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast?
Answer: She found a way to politicize a day of Dr. King’s remembrance.
Martha Coakley’s comments were absolutely distasteful. Also, Republican opponent Scott Brown was in attendance but he was not asked to speak. Afterward, Scott Brown responded with this:
“I thought it was inappropriate to be politicking when we are trying to honor Martin Luther King today. I don’t have any comments on what it says about her. Right now I am not going to comment on anything political right now, we’re going to start campaigning in about a half hour… I certainly didn’t realize that this was a rally for Martha and I thought it was inappropriate that she was starting to ask for other people’s votes when we were trying to remember Martin Luther King Jr. …I don’t remember hearing anything about Martin Luther King except for minor references. “

If you watched the video clip of Martha Coakley’s speech that I posted above, you might of heard her tell the crowd that, “Dr. King would be standing with me if he was alive today.” Unfortunately for her, Gateway Pundit pointed out that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece would likely disagree:
On a day when Americans across the country are celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his desire to regard all people as Americans worthy of equal treatment, his niece says King’s dream, if announced today, would also include protecting unborn children from abortion.
Dr. Alveda King, today, is celebrating Uncle’s life and she said he would agree that, when it comes to treating all people with respect, that he would include babies before birth.
“Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of a Beloved Community where all are treated with respect and dignity,” Alveda King told LifeNews.com today.
King told LifeNews.com, “The unborn are as much a part of the Beloved Community as are newborns, infants, teenagers, adults, and the elderly.”
“He fought against society’s exclusion of people who were treated as less than human because of their appearance,” she added. “Today, we are compelled to continue Uncle Martin’s fight by standing up for those who are treated as less than human because of their helplessness and inconvenience.”
Yikes… This election is not looking good for Democratic candidate Martha Coakley. One of the latest polls show Scott Brown leading by more than 9%. Ut oh… The stars are aligning!
