SAN ANTONIO - Peace activists are protesting plans for a military flyover at the city’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. march, saying the gesture runs counter to the nonviolent beliefs of the civil rights leader.
The city’s MLK Commission said the flyover by two fighter jets from Randolph Air Force Base is meant to be patriotic and an honor to King in a city with a strong military presence.
One would think the Martin Luther King Commission might be the best group to plan the day honoring the slain civil rights giant. But no....there is always a whining left winger trying to rain on the parade.
