Meanwhile, Glenn Beck and his army of bigot get geared up for a rally 47 years to the day at the site of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech which is not referred to by the corporate media or white mainstream America as "Sacred Ground."
Hmmm. A puzzle.
Okay, maybe sacred ground is only where dead people lay.

And what about that land hither, thither and yon, where the souls of murdered slaves roam, is that "sacred ground?" Well, not to white America, not really. That is more like "forgotten ground." Wonder if the governor of Mississippi has ever gotten his bowels in an uproar about what has been build in his state?
How about those Japanese internment camps? I'm thinking Sara Palin could care less what's built where they once stood.
What about the bones that litter American museums? I bet they're sacred to someone, but probably not too many white someones. FOX News must be all over that? Not so much.
Oh hey, how about all those dead bodies they find down around the border, you know, of those pesky illegal people who are stealing really good jobs from white Americans who have been clamoring for years to pick vegetables in the hot sun? Could they be someone's sacred ground? I bet Rush doesn't think so.
For that matter, I remember visiting Dachau and watching a bunch of white German teens cutting up and laughing with each other at the site of the furnaces. I kinda wasn't too happy with that, but I didn't notice their teacher saying a word. I guess it wasn't sacred ground to her.
Weird, isn't it?
