Statue of MLK on the National Mall : Good.
Having it built by a sculpture best known for making giant statues of Mao : *Head desk*

Ron Radosh has the story.

So am I not surprised, after a quick internet search, to find out that sculptor Le Xinin, is —–yes, you guessed it—- most well known for his sculptures of Mao Zedong.

So, our greatest civil rights leader, a man dedicated to non-violence, Ghandian principles applied to oppression within a democratic society, is honored by a sculptor whose background is that of fashioning tributes to one of the late century’s most horrible tyrants and mass murderers.


There's a reason Muggeridge's Law exists.
