Martin Luther King and The National Review

I'll link to this because the good Rev. Dr. King is not only a personal hero, but also received his PhD from BU. Additionally, it helps prove that conservatives in 1959 couldn't tell when wholesale social change was afoot, just like they couldn't tell in 1932, 1964 and, so it seems, today. An excerpt of the excerpt (how I wish it were in its entirety):
Let me say at once, for the benefit of the wicked, fearful South, that Martin Luther King wil never rouse a rabble; in fact, I doubt very much if he could keep a rabble awake... past its bedtime...
Words fail to describe the all-encompassing idiocy of that statement.
