With reference to Leonard Pitts' article in the Herald on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, it is outrageous that someone would have the audacity to publish an article which bears scant resemblance to the truth, but in this day in age, that seems to be par for the course.
No existential threats to us; has Pitts heard about ISIS? If he thinks that violent crime is down, have him spend a week in Detroit, Chicago, or even New York City where the murder rates are spiking due to weak Democratic leadership.
And his claims about unemployment are mind boggling. The rate is low because we are not counting the millions of Americans who are no longer looking for jobs, and the labor force participation rate is at its lowest in 25 years thanks to our feckless administration.
And Iran has already violated the nuclear treaty by testing ballistic missiles. This treaty will only make it easier for them to acquire nuclear capability under our noses.
And the worst part is his attempt to play the race card. People are rebelling against the policies of Obama, like the ACA, cuts in the military, and his abject refusal to use the term "Islamic extremism." Pitts needs to look in the mirror to see the true face of racism here.
