Black lives matter members have been going into restaurants and telling people who are eating to raise their hand if they are with them, or face the consequences.

Unlike Joe Biden, Martin Luther King would denounce BLM in a heartbeat..and repeatedly.

The rioters aren't being held to the same level of accountability either, looks like the "got on their level."

They'd rather take a knee to a fentanyl junkie than to God.

The left supports infanticide and while I favor that word over
the more political word abortion. Even "peaceful protesters
would rather burn down a Wendy's than an abortion clinic.
And that for me is truly the biggest indicator of their minds
being washed out their ears. If they had any brains at all they
would gain support by burning every God forsaken murder hole.

Why waste a fire on a Wendy's? when you can do God a favor.

I think God is almost entirely missing from the modern western christian church.
Blame game isn’t it, nobody serves themselves better than the christians

“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.

This was back when socialism meant socialism, mot the modern definition of socialism which is “whatever manufactured social issue my favourite corporate brand is advocating this week!”

Dr King’s socialism is dead. Has been for a long time.

Fair enough.

Who is under the umbrella of "the left" in the US?

Most everyone, when it rains.
I carry mine on the left.

I would agree an undercurrent that cuts through almost every major issue facing the US is the lack of a unifying eliminate; whether it be God or Community or Sport Or some other non political point of common ground.

To many people are overly obsessed with their own individual rights that they could care less about the people that share the country around them.

My right to cause havoc in the streets because I disapprove of who's running the country.

My right to carry arms and walk right down the middle of that havoc because I disapprove of the way they are disapproving.

My right not to wear a mask during a global pandemic.

My right to start an argument with a total stranger who doesn't want to wear a mask during a global pandemic.

My right to win an election.

My right to all the toilet paper in the store.

..and knew how to bring about change.

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?

Only in Democratic ran states.
Now , where have I heard that today ?

Actually I looked up to MLK in the 60's as I still do today

He's a popular figure on the right. He lived this country and simply disagreed with some on how to pursue our exceptionalism and greatness.

Modern lefties hate America and want to destroy it
