The moral arc of the golf resort

There is no depth too low, it seems.

Ken Starr, an attorney for the president, invoked Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his closing defense at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. “We hear the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his dream-filled speech about freedom,” Starr told the U.S. senators in attendance. 

Oddly enough, though, by “freedom” King didn’t mean freedom to lie, to cheat, to steal, to grab by the pussy, to brag about grabbing by the pussy, to bully, to insult, to extort, to blackmail, to encourage and reward murderers and punish those who resist murderers.

“And during his magnificent life, Dr. King spoke not only about freedom, freedom standing alone, he spoke frequently about freedom and justice,” Starr continued. “And in his speeches he summoned up regularly the words of an abolitionist from the prior century, Theodore Parker, who referred to the moral arc of the universe — the long moral arc of the universe points toward justice.”

And it is emetically disgusting to compare that idea of the moral arc of the universe to anything related to Donald Trump. If the moral arc of the universe produces or protects a Donald Trump then the hell with the moral arc of the universe.
