Harris Miller Offends Bigots: Throws Another Softball

I thought I would help Harris Miller with his PR. Although MLK was very important to our nation and deserves a holiday where people don't actually show up for work, Harris Miller finds the time to throw another softball. His risk: the bigot vote. I doubt he was counting on them anyways (unless there happen to be bigots who also support offshoring American jobs).

So although I like what he says about Dr. King and this holiday, when should we expect him to defend some of his past positions as a lobbyist? Enough of the softballs Harris Miller. Let's play politics.

Harris Miller Releases Statement on Martin Luther King Day

"Today we celebrate the life and work of an American hero, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His dream of an America free of racism and bigotry made it possible, as he said, for us 'to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.' Even today, Dr. King gives us hope that we can face the problems that divide us today, and have the virtue and determination to unite as a nation.

"Dr. King's faith, his dedication to the principles of justice and equality, and his steadfast resolve in the face of hatred and violence serve as inspiration to all Americans. Dr. King led America through a time of many wrongs, and gave our country the strength we needed to work through the extreme divisiveness and conflict that had plagued our own nation. Today we honor him and pledge to continue his work in the years to come."
