What were they thinking?

Apparently, there are quite a few people underwhelmed with the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Count me among them. Noah Kristula Green has an interesting visual takedown of the monument, which compares it to several Soviet/Communist statues.
This critique misses the worst part of the statue, I think. The worst is this: Who could look at that statue and not think, “Oh. They’ve encased him in carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.”
