‘Cowboy’ conservative claims MLK for the Tea Party until liberals stop bringing up race

You just can't make this sh*t up.

During his speech at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition convention yesterday, conservative entertainer and YouTube celebrity “Wild Bill” Finley claimed ownership of slain Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

“How appropriate that we are here right at the Martin Luther King holiday,” he began. “Martin Luther King had a dream, and it was a good one — a day when skin color wouldn’t matter anymore. A time when character would be more important than skin color.”

“But when we look at what’s going on in America today, it’s pretty easy to see that Dr. King’s dream got hijacked,” Finley continued. “I believe racism in this country would’ve died out a long time ago, except that some people figured out that racism can be very profitable — both financially and politically.”

“And now, those who are most vocal about Martin Luther King being their hero seem to be the most race-driven people in America. The left have mastered the art of turning every issue into a skin-color issue, character be damned,” he said.

“Manufacturing racism for political purposes is a big business in the USA, and manufactured racism has been used to hurt the Tea Party from Day 1. There’s no doubt in my mind that if Martin Luther King Jr. was alive today the liberal left would spit in his face because he would be such a threat to their political agendas.”

  1. My feeling is that nobody should claim anybody else, period.

  2. Thus, Finley turned his MLK day speech into a race issue proving, once again, that Tea Partiers have absolutely no sense of irony.

  3. Opportunistic noise ... rabid, vapid, and flaccid.

  4. Agree, Agree, and Agree.

    The Teapot emits a great hissing sound and overfloweth with hot air (steam).

  5. Of course, if the guy is saying that the civil rights leaders of yesteryear (King, Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglas, etc.) were significantly greater and more admirable than the current crew (Sharpton, Jackson, 95% of the Congressional Black Caucus, etc.), THAT I could agree with.

    1. Good point Will the intelligence, integrity, wisdom, and motivation, of the formers certainly overshadows the shallowness of the latters.

      But I think we both know Finley's motivation was just the usual BS. Shaw is right on this.

    2. I agree with Will is that was what he meant but as usual certain people always seem to enlighten us with their interpretations

  6. Continues to confirm one writer's view of the TP folk"
    "It's one thing to be ignorant. It's another to take pride in it. And it's quite another to venture beyond that into full-blown stupidity."
