Dadahead makes the following apt observation about the spectacle of various far right pundits lauding civil rights icon Rosa Parks:
Surely I am not the only one who finds amusement in all of the right-wing bloggers solemnly memorializing Rosa Parks as a "true hero." Seriously, what do you think the likes of Michelle Malkin and LaShawn Barber would have had to say about Parks if they had been around back then? Do you think they would have lionized her as they are doing today? Or would she have been just another unhinged anti-American moonbat?
It is perhaps worth remembering that the "conservatives" of each prior era in America in the last century were, without an exception I can recall, on the morally reprehensible side of every major social and economic issue: the "conservatives" opposed the New Deal, opposed social security, supported segregation, opposed civil rights laws, and on and on. One may hope that in fifty years America will have recovered enough of its senses so that people will look back and recognize today's "conservatives" as being as morally reprehensible (though often in new ways) as yesterday's.
