Frankly, I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was “well timed” in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation. For years now I have heard the word “Wait!” It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This “Wait” has almost always meant “Never.” We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that “justice too long delayed is justice denied.”
In other words, I’m a liar, A Liar, A LIAR!
So Mitch McConnell “intends” to do this and that. Well, maybe we should ask Susan Collins or Bob Corker just what Mitch McConnell’s “intentions” are worth. Has he taken any of the actions he promised them in return for their votes on the Cut Cut Cut Bill?
Well, if that’s the way you’re going to treat the members of your own Party why should a single Democrat believe you now?
Of course some will, because they’re cowards and Quislings who should be booted from the Party so they can take those Government Tit Sucking jobs on K Street they want and crave. Corrupt through and through.
And even imputing the finest of motives and most sincere of “intentions” to McConnell (which I don’t for a moment, he’s a scumbag piece of crap), Paul Ryan has publicly stated he doesn’t feel bound by any Senate agreements.
So what do you get for your Treason Democrats?
A great steaming heap of nothing.
If you are sincere about your goals to do right for Domestic Spending by linking it to Military Spending, to provide Health Insurance for 9 Million Children, to save Immigration especially for Dreamers in the face of a Racist and Bigoted Republican Party (they all are, the fact you play squash with them in the Senate Gymnasium doesn’t erase the taint- it makes you stink just like them), you know you have to attach it to “Must Pass Legislation”.
That’s what this is.
Or will you pretend to believe the promises of a proven liar and “Wait!” for a better day, a more timely season?
In short, as Dr. King puts it- “Never”.
