Some say he was, and some say he was not.
In any event, here is a message from Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Co-Chair Bob Paduchik on celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:
“Today, we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who helped forge the path toward equality for all,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “Led by the principles of peace and nonviolence, he inspired generations with his enduring vision of realizing the American Dream. As we pay tribute to Dr. King today, we must continue to work towards making his dream a reality.”
“Today, we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said Co-Chair Bob Paduchick. “We commemorate a man who saw the need for change and an opportunity to lead by example. Through nonviolent activism Martin Luther King, Jr. altered the course of American history. May we remember and cherish the things he held dear and treat one another with dignity and respect, today and every day.”
