Republicans' hypocrisy "honoring Dr. King"

I was just out on Facebook and saw how Missouri's Senator Roy Blunt said he was to "honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr." By comparison, Congressional Representative Billy Long had no tribute of any kind and Rep. Vicky Hartzler honored her mother's death, a week ago, instead.

In the bigger picture, their Republican party's true actions show what they're really made of and what they're about and it's important to keep it in mind and perspective:

The GOP’s state-by-state crusade to disenfranchise voters

You can't get too much more un-American than taking away the votes of fellow Americans.

Their official policies take voting away from students, the elderly, the physically-challenged, blacks, Hispanics, the poor, virtually anyone and everyone they even think might vote for any political party but their own.

They sometimes use the excuses of protecting the voting process but it's known, statistically, that people don't try to cheat on voting in anything like significant numbers, either state by state or nationally:

So happy Martin Luther King Day, Republicans. You, with your Jim Crow tactics in 2015 America.

You shameless, lying, un-American hypocrites.
