Bush Derangement Syndrome: Civil Rights Leader Refused to Cross Bridge with ex-President in Selma (VIDEO)

Roland Martin reported that an associate of slain civil rights icon the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. told him that she refused to march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama Saturday because of the presence of former President George W. Bush.

Diane Nash reportedly told Martin she refused to march with Bush because, ‘the Movement was about peace and non-violence and Bush is a man of war.’

Martin said he has videotape of Nash’s remarks and will be posting them soon.

“Just talked to MLK lieutenant Diane Nash. She refused to walk with Pres. Obama & others across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. #Selma50”

“Nash said she refused to walk across the Pettus Bridge because of the presence of Pres George W. Bush. #Selma50”

“Nash said the Movement was about peace and non-violence and Bush is a man of war. I have video. Will post soon. #Selma50 #NewsOneNow”
