During a segment about Pence’s now-infamous comments about Trump and MLK on CBS Sunday, Brzezinski read a quote from a speech that King gave in Berlin in which he decried the wall that at the time divided the German capital.
“Here on either side of the wall are God’s children, and no manmade barrier can obliterate that fact” King said during a 1964 address in East Berlin. “Whether it be East or West, men and women search for meaning, hope for fulfillment, yearn for faith in something beyond themselves, and cry desperately for love and community.”
Joe Madison, a host on SirusXM’s Urban View Channel, the chimed in with another quote that he said was relevant to Pence.
“Let me add another iconic speech that Dr. King gave, an amazing sermon, when he said, ‘The two most most dangerous things on the planet [are] sincere ignorance and/or conscientious stupidity,'” he said. “And unfortunately, I think in Pence’s case, that both are combined.”
Madison then explained how Trump’s call for a border wall was the exact opposite of what MLK would have advocated in his lifetime.
“Dr. King was about freedom,” he said. “Walls are not freedom.”
