King declared that the social programs of President Lyndon Johnsonâ€™s administration, widely termed "The Great Society," had been "shot down over the battlefields of Vietnam." King announced that "it would be very inconsistent for me to teach and preach nonviolence in this situation and applaud violence when thousands and thousands of people, both adults and children, are being maimed and many killed in this war."
