I saw a news article about Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday events being held on Monday. It took this long. Well, technically, I saw it referenced yesterday on a local news show. It was an 'about town' segment, where the energetic young reporter was showing what parents could do in the area with their kids on Monday. He mentioned they would be out of school due to MLK Day. Until then I forgot the day was around the corner.
I wrote about this development last year here. It is no accident of course. It never was. I don't mean it was some vast conspiracy. I merely mean MLK in one context was used for decades in order to drive home one form of the agenda. Now that is no longer convenient. Therefore, we're seeing the dawn of a new narrative.
I'm not saying it hasn't been mentioned anywhere. I can't read every article and watch ever newscast. I'm sure it has been mentioned before now. As I said in last year's post, however, it could have been the middle of August 20 years ago, and I would have heard MLK referenced and quoted at least three times in a week. By December I would hear almost daily countdowns to the holiday. Now? I think I've heard more references to Arbor Day over the last year.
Again, it is no accident.
