Glover Comes to CMU

Does anyone else find it ironic that Central Michigan University has invited Danny Glover to deliver the keynote address during its Martin Luther King Week festivities?

Would Dr. King embrace the policies of Robert Mugabe? Would he actively support the freedom crushing dictatorship of Fidel Castro? Would he be a cheerleader for Hugo Chavez as Chavez slowly turns his country into a third world backwater dictatorship?

Glover has done all of these things.

Shouldn't the keynote speaker for this week of celebration and remembrance be a person who at least pretends to pursue what Dr. King believed in?

CMU should be embarrassed.
