Seriously?

I'd really like to see the plank in the Democratic Party platform that says that!!

...wow.


Uh, Lincoln was a Republican, the Democrats were the party that founded the KKK, the most prominent Klansman in recent history to become a US Senator was Democrat Robert Byrd, 80% of Republicans voted for the US Civil Rights Bill in the 60s versus only 63% of Democrat reps. What else could you call the past 40 years of Democrats paying a pittance to minorities in exchange for them staying as Kept Voters while striving behind the scenes to keep drugs available, the cultures at odds, and the urban ghettos poor and without work to ensure the Kept Voters stayed Kept Voters? It's the modern equivalent of slavery and it sure as hell hasn't been the product of the GOP. GOP wanted the minorities to get educated, get jobs, get themselves a ticket out of the projects and engaged in the community while the Dems have pushed for more hand outs, more excuses, fewer opportunities for self-drive, and more government control.

As a closer, who's fostering an ideology of slavery... the man who tells a minority "I believe in your ability to provide yourself and your family a better life, just work hard and be smart with your money and you can and will hold a full share in this American dream" or the man who says "Aw, you poor thing. You clearly can't do it for yourself like all these whites (with their 'white privilege') can, so let's pass some laws to push them down and lift you up further to make up for these shortcoming only the Dems seem to see you shackled with. We'll take from those who have made more and give it to you, all you need to do is keep voting for our party and we'll take care of you and yeah, don't worry, we know it isn't your fault, you poor thing." If viewing the minorities in this country as being almost handicapped by their status as a non-white isn't a modern manifestation of the attitudes that lead to slavery being acceptable, what is it, exactly?

Good points. But, the identity politics currently embraced by democrats and superimposed on top of civil rights/real justice work, I think would not be accepted by King.

The so-called cultural Marxism, third wave feminism, judging people by their intersectional identity, not their points or individual work, etc.

It’s to the point that for most topics, it can be predicted what the varying talking points will be.

Since we're playing the partisan card so heavily here, this is Dr. Alveda King ( MLK's niece ) setting the record straight about her family's political affiliation:

youtu.be...


Spoiler alert: They were Republicans and still are today.


Spoiler alert, there’s a thing called the southern strategy, which you guys conveniently leave out every time you try to white wash this time in history in your image.


In American politics, the Southern Strategy refers to a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.[1][2][3] As the civil rights movement and dismantling of Jim Crow laws in the 1950s and 1960s visibly deepened existing racial tensions in much of the Southern United States, Republican politicians such as presidential candidate Richard Nixon and Senator Barry Goldwater developed strategies that successfully contributed to the political realignment of many white, conservative voters in the South who had traditionally supported the Democratic Party rather than the Republican Party.[4] It also helped to push the Republican Party much more to the right.[4]

But I guess that’s too much like reality, huh?


The Southern Strategy was an answer to the "Solid South" that democrats held. A single party empire. And remember kids, this solid south was at the height of the Democrats KKK.

President Trump and Vice President Pence on Monday made a brief, unannounced visit to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C. to mark the national holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader.


Darn those Democrats! Forgot to look at their crystal ball again!



Crystal Ball

Maybe a Calendar?

Martin Luther King Jr. son said this in reference to some comments Mike Pence made about MLK:



“Now, Martin Luther King Jr. was a bridge builder, not a wall builder. Martin Luther King Jr. would say love, not hate, will make America great.”


And I love this quote from MLK himself when he visited the Berlin wall in 1964:



It is indeed an honor to be in this city, which stands as a symbol of the divisions of men on the face of the earth, for here on either side of the wall are God’s children, and no man-made barrier can obliterate that fact.


Powerful quote! And he continued:



Regardless of the barriers of race, creed, ideology, or nationality, there is an inescapable destiny which binds us together. There is a common humanity which makes us sensitive to the sufferings of one another


MLK was truly great when he said this:



Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole….This call for a worldwide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one’s tribe, race, class, and nation is in reality a call for an all-embracing and unconditional love for all men. This oft misunderstood and misinterpreted concept…has now become an absolute necessity for the survival of man

Whelp, the Trump administration made no announcement that President Trump would make an appearance at the MLK Memorial, he stayed for about 2 1/2 minutes, and made no address. Other Congress people had events planned at other venues, closer to their own constituents.

So, there's that.

MLK wanted peace and understanding, friendship with all races, the TPTB that are running things don't want that.

Not an American hear, however from what I gather from the news it appears your Democrats are staging a mutiny to discredit your president. Your republicans are doing nothing to help him, of which he is one. Am I correct?

From "The Hill" thehill.com...


President Trump and Vice President Pence on Monday made a brief, unannounced visit to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C. to mark the national holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader. Trump and Pence laid a wreath at the memorial. WATCH: President Trump and Vice President Pence visit the MLK Memorial in Washington, D.C. t.co... pic.twitter.com/ih2zB0ZqVW — CBS News (@CBSNews) January 21, 2019 "Good morning, everybody. Great day. Beautiful day. Thank you for being here. Appreciate it," Trump said, according to a reporter traveling with him. The visit to the memorial lasted approximately two minutes, the reporter added.


2 minutes...
And what.... you want them to sit for 6 hours or something ? It’s like Thanksgiving dinner; it takes 6 hours to prepare and 15 minutes to eat. But hey they got Pelosi and Schumer best by 2 minutes, plus whatever time and money it took to prepare.

Maybe he thought a moment of silence was more appropriate. When did liberals decide he should talk more ?

Condoleeza Rice also said at a Republican convention that her father had been refused by Democrats so he went to the GOP.
