This is an especially excellent SMN episode; really goes into historical depth to examine the ways the right attempts to co-opt MLK’s legacy and beliefs to promote the exact opposite of his legacy and beliefs. Worth watching all the way through.

Hi. In today’s episode, we discuss the literal only MLK quote that Republicans ever mention, how it’s a single sentence, why they love it so much, and what else he said that they’re avoiding.

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
