Posted on January 18 2010 6:00 pm
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

Today’s comment of the day was written by C_Madcap, in the comment section of “Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Do Leftists Have To Ruin Everything?

Great post that brings out points that Ii argue all the time. The civil rights movement was a good thing. It had achievable goals with a firm understanding of the nature of things. Today however, what has replaced the civil rights movement is something I call the Liberal rights movement. Unlike it’s predecessor, this movement has goals that are first unachievable, and second destructive if attempted.

Like the Founding Fathers, Dr. King demanded equality of opportunities for all Americans, not of equality of outcome. Sadly, Dr. King’s self-declared successors have invented all kinds of non-existing “rights” in order to force their socialist agenda upon the rest of the nation.
