You signed a bill this year that eliminated requirements for schools to teach about Martin Luther King Jr.
“I think the tragedy is that we have a Congress with a Senate that has a minority of misguided senators who will use the filibuster to keep the majority of people from even voting.” —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1963
On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we must protect the hard-fought gains he helped achieve—and continue his unfinished struggle for a freer and more just society by raising our voices to confront abuses of power, challenge hate and discrimination, and protect the right to vote.
"We may all have come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now." Martin Luther King, Jr.
My boat was a Pan Am Boeing 737 as an immigrant at the age of 6, and life was not easy, but here I am. #everforward #LG42 #Virginia
The most meaningful tribute we can make to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is to secure voting rights for every American. Now is not just a time for reflection, but also for action. The House passed the Freedom to Vote Act last week; the Senate must show the same courage. #MLKDay
martin luther king jr was killed, assassinated, murdered. he didn't simply die, he was killed. his life was ended by the state
pro tip: if your definition of critical race theory includes the words 'marxism,' 'socialism,' 'woke' or 'cancel,' you are an unserious idiot who needs to sit the fuck down. and keep Martin Luther King Jr.'s name out of your stupid racist mouth
Steve Scalise, as a member of the Louisiana legislature, voted against recognizing Martin Luther King Day as a state holiday.
It was 2004, and the vote was 90 for a 6 against. https://t.co/QxAzgUhl1U
, today we remember how your decision may be the decision to undo the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Kyrsten, unless you plan on changing direction you should delete this tweet as it is bullshit based upon your current position.
"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
Joe Biden will spend Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Wilmington, Delaware as he believes that “even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did.”
It begs the question....Does Biden know who Dr. Martin Luther King is ...and what he did for the Civil Rights movement in America? The man was a hero. George Floyd was a despicable felon.
Super honored to have created the 2022 Google Doodle honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thank you so much to Google and my AD Angelica McKinley for making this possible!✌️🏾✨ https://t.co/EfoIOof0r0
Vice President Kamala Harris @VP
If we are to truly honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy, we must continue to fight for the freedom to vote. https://t.co/3L2j2sRIqS
when you say some shit like "Isis is good" on martin luther king day, i want the pain i feel from reading that, to be the pain inside of you
, your position on the filibuster will UNDO the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. You can still be on the RIGHT side of history in the battle for voting rights. If you won’t support a carve out, please at least make it a TALKING filibuster!
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

The universe gave us Martin Luther King, Michelle Obama and Betty White all on the same day.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once said, “If I can do my duty as a Christian ought, if I can bring salvation to a world once wrought, If I can spread the message as the master taught, then my living will not be in vain.” He’s pictured here w/my father @BillyGraham
in 1962. #MLKDay
Honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.
Speaker Pelosi makes a powerful case for reforming the filibuster to protect voting rights alongside the family of Martin Luther King, Jr.
NEW TODAY! Watch #JoeManchinIsADisgrace
Don't let @Sen_JoeManchin
lie and pretend support Martin Luther King, Jr while they simultaneously block #VotingRightsAct.
Let’s be extremely clear:
Donald Trump, Kevin McCarthy, and Mitch McConnell would have HATED Martin Luther King Jr. and called him anti-American and communist.
Today we honor the incredible life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
Colin Kaepernick has way more in common with Martin Luther King Jr than the people who post MLK Jr quotes AND say Kaepernick is wrong for when and how he peacefully protests.
Today on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we honor the memory of a remarkable man and a giant of the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. challenged our Nation to live up to the highest ideals of our founding and his memory will continue to inspire generations to come.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought for voting rights as necessary condition for social change and equal justice. In 2022, we can honor his memory by passing much-needed voter protections.
Martin Luther King Jr: “The evils of capitalism are as real as the evils of militarism, and the evils of racism.” #MLK
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that." — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
