Walker has no business celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.'s March for Freedom. None.

Holy crap, did this just happen?
Channel3000: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's office has rung an online bell as part of
an international ceremony to honor the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech … commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom that paved the way for civil-rights legislation.
At the same time:
Gov. Scott Walker says protesters at the Capitol should "follow the rules" and get permits. Walker restated his position Wednesday as Capitol Police arrested a prominent union leader during the daily lunchtime singalong. Wisconsin State Employees Union Executive Director Marty Beil was led away in handcuffs.
To Walker, King's use of out of state protesters and union thugs would probably delegitimize the movement if it were being held today.
