People are going certifiably loopy over the MLK revelations:
Via Clarissa, MLK gets #metoo’d. Somehow it’s news he was an adulterer and had unsavoury proclivities. The author of the original article (here) had been writing about this since the eighties, if memory serves. It only becomes a hot issue now because it can be used to virtue signal. I remember about ten years ago CBC radio broadcast many MLK speeches praising the man. How times change.
One can keep saying “rape, rape, rape”, and people will clap their eyes and repeat “but what’s the big deal with adultery?” ad infinitum. I’m finding it impossible to meet a person who wouldn’t use the word “adultery” in this context. Adultery is as relevant to the issue as pink giraffes but you can’t use giraffes to deflect. Otherwise, people would keep mentioning it all the time.
