Democrats and Funerals

First it was the Paul Wellstone memorial in Minnesota. Then it was the Rosa Parks funeral in Detroit. And today it was the Coretta Scott King funeral in Atlanta. What is it about democrats turning funerals into angry and sometimes hateful political rallies?

Today, instead of celebrating the life of Mrs. King — as President Clinton and several others did — the “reverend” Joseph Lowery and Jimmy Carter decided to use the occasion to take shots at President Bush. What amazes me is that these two men claim to be followers of Jesus. I’ve lost any respect I ever had for Jimmy Carter.

That’s not to say that it is somehow “unChristian” to criticize a president. Certainly it is not. But there is a time and a place for that. The funeral of a good woman is neither the time nor the place.

Of course the “spectators” at the funeral loved the political rhetoric by the angry democrats. President Bush was courageous to step into that den of vipers.

    Trust me, this spectacle will back fire on the Democrats.

    A reminder, the libs at the funeral fail to remember a democratic president named Kennedy who wire tapped Martin Luther King because he was alledgedly having affairs behind Corretta.

    Ironic isn’t it?

    Scary as hell, Lord Jesus Come.

    Unfortunately, this didn’t surprise me at all. Democrats all too often politicize these events, despite the racism that is intertwined with the party in the past…and even today.

    Most Democrats are not bad people, but hese Democrats are… They HAVE to pull these disgusting stunts because pandering to blacks is all they have left.

    When Howard Dean is Head Dem, what can you expect?

    The most dignified man at the funeral was George H.W. Bush (or “Bush 41”). He was gracious and kind. I didn’t think much of him as President, but my opinion of him as a human being is very high. I voted for Jimmy Carter in my first Presidential election. I’m not ashamed of that (my other option was Gerald Ford…) but I am ashamed of him. Teddy Kennedy — a national bad joke — even brought up his brother Bobby’s name as a hero of the civil rights movement and got a ton of applause for it. Where were these people when Bobby Kennedy was wiring tapping — without warrants — King and his friends, harrassing his workers, etc.? Amazing.
