Plagiarism on parade

Enjoyable take on that joke of an inauguration yesterday.

By A. Dru Kristenev —— Bio and ArchivesJanuary 21, 2021

Fine. It wasn’t a parade because there was no fanfare and procession down Pennsylvania Avenue following the ceremony to install Joseph R. Biden in the office of President. Not that one could make much of a parade out of the few hundred people, including the military band, scattered across the square and lawn adjacent to the Capitol. It was bad enough bearing with Biden’s attempt to earnestly quote Abraham Lincoln and the Constitution as he projected every despicable act of his own party onto conservatives, but to hear Rev. Sylvester Beaman mock Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was tragic. There aren’t a great number left who can say they were present to hear Dr. King give his “I Have a Dream Speech” live. It just so happens I’m one of them, having stood in the press box in Anaheim Convention Center in 1968 listening to Dr. King deliver those words like moving thunder short weeks before he was assassinated. Never did it cross my mind that a black liberation theology preacher would study Dr. King’s diction and style to cash-in on the unifying vision of a man martyred for his conviction to stand for Christ through whom all are made equal.
