CNN might have surpassed MSNBC as the dumbest media outlet on the planet. This is how CNN commemorated Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday:
– He's an environmental hero
– He was a socialist before it was cool
– He never let a political disagreement turn nasty
Many Americans have turned MLK into a safe holiday mascot, but some say King still speaks in ways that go beyond civil rights https://t.co/zMBtSBfPIm pic.twitter.com/Y8gl4Kx7lP

King had some serous faults. But, unlike CNN, he wasn’t an idiot. I am pretty sure that if King had witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union, the fall of the Iron Curtain, the decline of Cuba, the renaissance of Eastern Europe, the bizarre disaster of North Korea, the ongoing tragedy in Venezuela, where people have eaten their pets, zoos have been raided for food, currency is so debased that it is scarcely worth printing, infants die in hospitals and children leave home so they can improve their diets by foraging in dumpsters, he would have been smart enough to realize that socialism is the worst disaster ever inflicted on the human race. Unlike CNN, which after all of this, tells us that socialism is “cool.”
