Untutored hypocrisy in North Carolina.

I note this OpEd in the Davidson County NC Dispatch: "Gun rally on MLK Day not appreciated."
I don't do Facebook, so I am unable to leave my comment. Would someone be so kind as to post it there?
Ms. Myers, if she knew her history better, might recall that Martin Luther King and other civil rights leaders slept soundly, safe from harm by the Klan, when they were guarded by the Deacons for Defense and Justice, a black militia made up largely of veterans and CARRYING MILITARY SURPLUS WEAPONS they had brought back from World War 2 and Korea.
She might also recall that the first gun control laws (and many afterward) were written to keep firearms out the hands of black folks, even freedmen. Martin Luther King was no saint, but he understood that cowards in sheets were less likely to be overawed by Gandhian civil disobedience than by a single full-auto M-2 carbine with a thirty round magazine in the hands of a black man who knew how to use it. If he saw any hypocrisy in that, it is lost to history. A history, not to put too fine a point on it, that Ms. Myers would do well to study before summoning a faux outrage about Martin Luther King that he himself did not share.

It appears a Brett Clingerman (?) replied to this twit, word for word as you wrote it, and gave credit to you at the end of it. Her "logic" is beyond me, but that's the usual for socialist talking points.

Saw your comment posted there a few times already, so I piled on and posted it again. Stupid fooking progs make me sick.

Several copies of your comment, plus others supporting you had been posted. One especially good comment also linked to Jews for the Protection of Firearms Ownership ( and their excellent short clips, No Guns for Negroes, No Guns for Jews, and 2A for the USA. Excellent blowback to an ignorant pundit.
