Appears CNN finally figured out that Martin Luther King Jr. was actually a registered Republican so in their desperation to IGNORE that inconvenient tidbit they decided to make him a socialist hero.
What in the blue Hell are they talking about?
– He's an environmental hero
– He was a socialist before it was cool
– He never let a political disagreement turn nasty

Socialism has never been and will never be COOL.
If you’re concerned about inequality, health care, climate change or even the nastiness of our political disagreements, then King has plenty to say to you. To see that version of King, though, we have to dust off the cliches and look at him anew
If you’re more familiar with your smartphone than your history, try this: Think of King not just as a civil rights hero, but also as an app — his legacy has to be updated to remain relevant.
Think of MLK as an app?
Which Marx-idolizing college dorm room economic illiterate did @CNN hire to run its social media operations?

Unicorns with typewriters and mimes proofread.
My how narratives change. I remember when, if a conservative called King a socialist, they'd catch a list of shit.

But dude, it’s cool now.
You hear that Venezuela? Your people may be starving, but at least CNN thinks you're cool.

Why do you let 10-year olds write your tweets?

– He was a Christian
– He was pro 2nd amendment
– He was pro life

He was a registered Republican.
<sigh>. C'mon CNN. It's like you're not even trying.
