MLK knew when it was appropriate to raise your hands, to support a cause and to pursue truly blind justice. Equality under the law. Equality under God.



Yet God is entirely missing from the democrat party these days, and even from some within our own party. Sad.

The left would rather raise their hands not to the allmighty, but to fake causes and pop-culture attention seeking faux outrage induced violence.

Why put your hands up in prayer when you can raise them to marxism, communism, socialism, destruction of the nuclear family, elimination of law enforcement and law and order and promoting the overthrow of the US Republic?

Shame on the left. For what they do, and for tarnishing the names of civil rights leaders and icons by falsely associating their criminal/terroristic acts with the valiant acts of those in better times.

God ?
During covid, liberals would rather FORCE churches to remain closed, but looting is OK.....

Fact is, a large portion of leftists are self-absorbed cowardly virtue-signaling narcissists.

Exhibit A:
1.- After voting far left De Blasio Communist into office as Mayor of New York City, those cocktail circuit "look at me, look at ME!" liberal socialists are leaving New York City in a MASS EXODUS when the bad conditions THEY CREATED because of THEIR BAD JUDGEMENT and THEIR VOTE affects THEM, no accountability for who THEY placed in office

2.- As long as socialism only affects other people, liberals will support the left in order to look all "woke" and "trendy" and "caring"

3.- Liberals participate in "defund the police" protests until crime affects THEM and THEIR personal security

4. Liberals minimize the gravity of rising criminal activity when it affects OTHER people, and support restrictions and confiscation on guns, until they are PERSONALLY affected by rising crime caused by their support for "defund the police"....and then they either go out and buy guns, move from the mess THEY CREATED or BOTH !!!

All these hypocrites did not stay to defend their city, their "values", or even their homes: they took the cowardly way out.

They move on elsewhere to greener pastures, like locusts....

I've said it before but, these people are completely and utterly disrespectful to those that fought so people could all just be treated equally as humans. They use their names, bastardize their words and spit back into everyone of their faces.

If you look back at all the people that fought historically for human rights in America, whether over racism, sexism, classism or any of those other issues, they all had one thing in common.missing from these children 'peacefully protesting' today...

Those people loved America, wanted everyone to be treated equally as an American loved what America stood for and were working to make the country better for everyone.

None of those people spoke about violence and death to one race or another and in fact abhorred and recognized the violence that went on both ways.

Their goals.were to end that violence and hatred period and they were wise enough to understand using violence was not the answer as violence only begets more violence and hatred.

What's happening right now is exactly what those people fought so hard to prevent. It's absolutely disgusting what's being done in the name of 'peace' and 'equality'.

Pffft. Is that why the National Guard needed to be called in, during the '60 Civil Rights efforts, because everyone was acting so peacefully? Is that why so many Black folks, like John Lewis, got their heads cracked, courtesy of police batons, on the bridge in Selma?

yeah its pretty sad that I hear the Martin luther king jr qoute in justification for destruction and violence. " A riot is the language of the unheard"

its pretty sad to hear this I think I even heard Martin Luther King jr's son use that qoute recently. again so said that you would use a hero who's whole platform was non violence. to justify whats going on.

Do you think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr would approve?

He recognized that non-violence and true peaceful demonstration was the key to changing hearts & minds, and thereby changing votes.

Why can't you see that rioting/looting/burning down cities and killing or beating innocent people only bastardize a noteworthy and just cause? Politically, it makes zero sense. Who do you think the chaos is helping?

King and his group were peaceful. His opposition was not.

“Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.” — Martin Luther King Jr.



“If America does not use her vast resources of wealth to end poverty and make it possible for all of God’s children to have the basic necessities of life, she too will go to hell.” — Martin Luther King Jr.



“We must recognize that we can’t solve our problem now until there is a radical redistribution of economic and political power… this means a revolution of values and other things. We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation and militarism are all tied together… you can’t really get rid of one without getting rid of the others… the whole structure of American life must be changed. America is a hypocritical nation and [we] must put [our] own house in order.” — Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK was a socialist who was further left than Bernie Sanders. Which is why I find it completely disingenuous when you guys try to hold him up as some kind of ideal to chastise the current civil rights movement.

If he was alive you and others would be right here calling him a traitor and a terrorist the second Donald Trump tweeted about how big of a troublemaker he is.

Because I am an American shareholder and have a vested interest in this country.

Without absolute equality under the law we are no better than the third world attrocities I frequently rattle off. Folks like MLK fought the good fight, advancing that ideal. Like a true American, he built things.

Rioters/looters/arsonists and killers don't build, they destroy. Devastate. Harm.

We don't have to wonder what MLK Jr thought of the race riots that happened during the 60's.


King was questioned by CBS’ Mike Wallace about the “increasingly vocal minority” who disagreed with his devotion to non-violence as a tactic. In that interview, King admitted there was such a minority, though he said that surveys had shown most black Americans were on his side. “And I contend that the cry of ‘black power’ is, at bottom, a reaction to the reluctance of white power to make the kind of changes necessary to make justice a reality for the Negro,” King said. “I think that we’ve got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard. And, what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the economic plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years.”

What if I told you the BLM movement and all of these protests started because police officers aren't held to the same level of accountability as everyone else and frequently get away with murder and assault on the basis of "feeling threatened"?

King and his group took beatings. Meanwhile, Blacks were rioting from coast to coast.


King’s point, though subtle, is clear. He does not support violent tactics, including riots, but he argues that the way to stop citizens from rioting is to acknowledge and fix the conditions that they are rioting against.
..............
…I think America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear?
