MLK was probably a plagiarist . So I don’t feel too bad for this “editing” — if you are going to steal, steal from the best.
It’s 110 in Phoenix this week. I have a dream too, about my bullshit plight for “freedom” from ‘da’ heat.
I am happy to join with write to you today in what will go down in history as the greatest bullshit demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation my life.
Five Two score years ago, a great American, my grandfather, in whose symbolic shadow weI stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation deed to his condo in Sun City, Arizona. Thereby becoming the first snowbird I knew. …
But one hundred35 years later,the NegroI am still is not free. One hundred 35 years later, the my life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation 110-degree temperatures and the chains of discrimination. this fucking job. One hundred 35 years later, the Negro I lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity surrounded by fucking happy, smiling snowbirds from Colorado, for fuck’s sake. One hundred 35 years later, the Negro i I am still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself myself wanting to be an exile in his my own land. So we have come here I have written this today to dramatize a my shameful condition…
…Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.
I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed I will find the time and money and the right place to leave this sweltering hell and dwell in the land where the air is less than 85-degrees: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
…I have a dream today…
…I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. effects of global warming will be limited — and our summers will be like Goddamn Canada…
…And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom snowbirds flee from life-sucking heat ring from to the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring snowbirds flee to from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from snowbirds flee to the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from snowbirds flee to the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from snowbirds flee to the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from snowbirds flee from Stone Mountain of Georgia in June!
Let freedom ring snowbirds flee from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee in July!
Let freedom ring snowbirds flee from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring snowbirds flee.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring snowbirds to flee, when we let it ring them flee from every hot village and every sweaty hamlet, from every southern state and every desert city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and walk in the sun without dropping dead and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
PS — for those of you offended by my disrespectful stealing of a hero’s speech. Yeah, you are right. But this is a bullshit blog – not a national protest to change the world.
Besides, MLK is not a god and his speech is not a fucking scripture. There are no holy men, and there are no holy words. It’s just words; so I’m stealing at will.
Of course it’s disrespectful, inappropriate and generally a waste of time. What the fuck did you think this blog was?
