This MLK quote holds up today. If you want to post generic quotes from MLK and stand in opposition to Civil Rights, then make sure you quote this one as well.

This is terrifying and deeply moving. I can’t imagine what it’s like to go through this day after day. The emotional toil. It’s also hopeful that there are doctors and nurses who choose to walk this path to help others. They are true heroes.
It's six AM. I'm still in bed and my eyes are barely open. I reach for my phone. I check my email. Last night's sign out just arrived. I scan last the names I don't recognize, looking for one in particular... 🧵

if you've tested positive for racism at any time in the past 365 days, the CDC now recommends that you shut the fuck up on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Millions of people are alive today who would be dead without air-conditioning. Assuming it's a "luxury" is a deadly mistake. Read more in my latest for Foreign Policy: foreignpolicy.com/2022/01/16…

folks, tag every post like this with #HypocriticalRacistTheory - let's get it trending
Nearly 60 years since the March on Washington, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s message echoes as powerfully as it did that day. His legacy inspires us to celebrate and keep building upon the remarkable progress our great nation has made toward becoming a more perfect union.

This failure cannot be blamed on Biden. The ~40% who have refused to be vaccinated have failed the country.
The United States has a lower vaccination rate than any other country tracked besides Russia. morningconsult.biz/3sPZfg2

The last mass lynching in the US occurred in my adopted hometown of Monroe GA in 1946. No one was ever held accountable. One victim was a Black vet. MLK, then 17, wrote his first published letter in response to the heinous crime, calling out the moral rot of racism. #mlk

On this day when we honor Dr. King I know that, growing up as a poor immigrant kid in America, the opportunities afforded me were only possible because of the ways he changed America The American project remains unfinished But it got so much closer because of him #MLK

Donald Trump released a statement early on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, saying @Morning_Joe spurns "Fake News." "We do spurn Fake News" pointed out @morningmika, correctly using the word with its true definition of "reject with disdain or contempt." mediaite.com/a/zmnxt

Please spare us. @SteveScaliseGOP, you voted against recognizing Martin Luther King Day as a state holiday in 2004
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s mission to promote equality and justice for all Americans resonates more deeply than ever. On #MLKDay, we honor Dr. King’s life and unending legacy by striving to uphold the values he courageously fought for.

.@GlennYoungkin's children go to school in Maryland. I'm not going to shame anyone for their school choices, but #Virginia parents should know. The fleece vests and folksy charm are an act--he is NOT one of us.
Every reporter that interviews @GlennYoungkin needs to ask him his position on Georgetown Prep’s mask and vaccine mandates since that’s where his kids go in DC and he’s never said a peep about it. He’s cool with our kids getting sick for his MAGA points…just not his.
