Politics King Eulogists to Bush: You Suck
Thanks to Rev. Joseph Lowery and former President Jimmy Carter, the absurdity of George W. Bush attending and speaking at the funeral of a civil rights leader didn’t pass unnoticed.
Speakers took a rare opportunity to criticize U.S. President George W. Bush’s policies to his face at the funeral on Tuesday of Coretta Scott King, widow of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Civil-rights leader the Rev. Joseph Lowery and former President Jimmy Carter cited Mrs. King’s legacy as a leader in her own right and advocate of nonviolence as they launched barbs over the Iraq war, government social policies and Bush’s domestic eavesdropping program.
Reverend Lowery received a standing ovation for this poem…
She extended Martin’s message against poverty, racism and war / She deplored the terror inflicted by our smart bombs on missions way afar
We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there / But Coretta knew and we knew that there are weapons of misdirection right down here / Millions without health insurance. Poverty abounds. For war billions more but no more for the poor.
