No group of people represents the exact opposite of everything Martin Luther King Jr. fought for more than the radical Left.
They constantly push to judge people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.
But this MLK Day, Coretta Scott King’s family went nuclear on “woke activists” for completely disrespecting MLK’s legacy.
Seriously . . . No one noticed?
This year marks the 40th anniversary since former President Ronald Reagan officially made the third Monday in January Martin Luther King Jr. Day to honor the civil rights leader in 1983.
As a result, many groups, organizations, and local communities across the country took their annual MLK Day festivities up a notch in order to celebrate.
And no MLK Day event was hyped up as much nationally as the unveiling of a 22-foot-tall bronze statue in Boston commemorating a hug Dr. King shared with his wife, Coretta Scott King, after he won the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize.
So-called “mainstream” media outlets flooded the city and lined up to report on the momentous occasion – but let’s just say it was a bit of a flop.
As former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, and millions of others put it, “What it looks like – I’m just going to say it – a giant penis . . . I’m sorry, it does!”

The fact that the statue wasn’t exactly the best choice aesthetically wasn’t lost on Coretta Scott King’s family either.
As a matter of fact, Seneca Scott, Coretta’s cousin, told the New York Post exactly what so many others were thinking when they saw the statue.
“The mainstream media was reporting on it like it was all beautiful, ’cause they were told they had to say that,” Scott said. “But then when it came out, a little boy pointed out — ‘That’s a penis!’ and everyone was like, ‘Yo, that’s a big old d**k, man.”
“The woke algorithm is just broke . . .”
Scott went on to rightly point out that those involved in constructing the statute obviously weren’t really paying much attention, because if they would have asked any average American their thoughts, they would have told them to go back to the drawing board.
“If you had showed that statue to anyone in the hood, they’d have been like, ‘No, absolutely not,’” Scott told the Post. “Ten million dollars were wasted to create a masturbatory metal homage to my legendary family members — one of the all-time greatest American families.”
But Scott didn’t stop there.
He went on to explain to the Post that he blamed “woke activists” for the debacle, saying that something is wrong with “the woke algorithm” when they think honoring real leaders like MLK in this sort of way is appropriate.
“The woke algorithm is just broke, I don’t know what else to tell you,” Scott added. “If you went through all of that and that’s what you came up with, something’s wrong.”
Meanwhile, Embrace Boston executive director Imari Paris Jeffries, who was responsible for overseeing the statue’s installation, claimed that he cried when he first saw it.
“And someone said to me, before I saw it for the first time, ‘Imagine when you see it, you’re going to cry,’” Jeffries claimed. “And I said, ‘I’ve seen monuments before. I’m not going to cry when I see a monument.’ And I actually did.”
If actual racists wanted to have mocked Martin Luther King Jr. on MLK Day, not even they could have come up with something like this statue.
It should be the easiest task in the world for woke activists who claim to be so “anit-racist” to come up with a decent statue honoring Dr. King, but they failed miserably.
Why do left-wing radicals have to make everything so hard?
