Video: MSNBC Host Suggests Arizona Secede

In an interview with Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host  Donny Deutsch used Martin Luther King, Jr. day to interject an opinion that Arizona no longer belongs in America.  The assertion is that Arizona does not recognize MLK day and therefore should leave the Union.  Sharpton, for his part and as a leader, should know that Arizona has recognized MLK day since 1992 and is the only state to pass the holiday by public vote.

Aside from misrepresenting Arizona’s racial history,  MSNBC and Rev. Sharpton are misrepresenting Dr. King’s dream.  Arizona is a state that believes in the individual, personal responsibility, and achievement by merit.  Each of these are ideals that Martin Luther King, Jr. held dear.  This is just another attempt by the left to smear Arizonans and a great number of Americans that are beginning to see that Arizona has gotten a few things right.

    You need to take a lesson from my Canadian-born father and start rooting for the country of your citizenship: America. Few things are more annoying than someone who becomes a citizen on paper, but not with their heart.

    You know, I heard about this while listening to the news this morning and I found the video that you uploaded and I just have to say I am repulsed at the level of idiocy spewing from our so called leaders. What Donny said was incorrect and outrageous, and then for Mr.Sharpton to let it go with out correcting an obvious error just goes to show what a sham they are. I guess "toning down the rhetoric" is only meant to be one sided.
