For those who say “WHO?” once I say “Rob Schneider,” then rely your self as one of many luckiest folks on this planet. I don’t even bear in mind when Rob Schneider was actually a factor, however he’s mates with Adam Sandler and that signifies that Rob will all the time have a job someplace (largely in Adam Sandler’s crappy movies). Anyway, Rob Schneider determined to share a particular message yesterday, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day right here in America.

First, a cursory rationalization: MLK Day celebrates the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., his activism, his speeches, his work to finish Jim Crow legal guidelines, to drive the passage of the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act and extra. MLK had a number of assist, from folks like John Lewis, Diane Nash, Jesse Douglas, Septima Clark, Rosa Parks, James Forman, Dorothy Top and Ralph Abernathy, amongst many others. These are the individuals who marched beside MLK. They had been those dealing with down the hoses, being attacked by police canine, being hit by police batons and extra. Rep. John Lewis was barely out of his teenagers when he started working with MLK, and Lewis actually shed blood in Selma when cops beat him for marching for voting rights. Final week, John Lewis mentioned Emperor Child Fists isn’t a “official” president. Even if you happen to don’t agree with John Lewis about that, you’ve simply obtained to respect the person sufficient to say, “He has each proper to his opinion.” Emperor Child Fists whined about Rep. Lewis on Twitter although, and because it seems, Rob Schneider feels the identical manner:

Like, there’s a lot stupidity and offensiveness right here, it’s type of tough to know the place to begin. Does Rob Schneider perceive that John Lewis actually KNEW Martin Luther King?? Like, they spent a number of time collectively. They didn’t all the time agree. They argued about one of the best methods to battle for what they believed in they usually argued about what the last word targets of their motion needs to be. It’s an entire misreading and whitewashing of MLK’s legacy and work to say that he didn’t “give in to his anger or his harm” and that’s how “completed and gained Civil Rights.” And please don’t say MLK “gained” Civil Rights, prefer it’s a trophy and now that it was gained, every little thing’s cool. Racism didn’t finish with the Civil Rights Act, identical to voter suppression didn’t finish with the (now gutted) Voting Rights Act.

Anyway, I loved all the folks going HAM on Rob Schneider. He nonetheless hasn’t deleted that silly f—king tweet both.
