50 Years Ago Today

Anybody at least my age remembers the day it happened. I was a senior in high school. The principal came on the PA system during homeroom and asked just for that day for the white kids and the black kids not to talk to each other. It was far different back then. Drugs hadn’t become a scourge, there was not a problem with violence and teen pregnancies. It was before the teachers, who unionized in the early 60s, had switched from educating students to pushing a far left liberal agenda the way they do now.
What sickens me is that the far left liberals and race baiters use his birthday to shout their racial hatred ‘in his name.’ In truth, King would be shunned by today’s Democrat party. He was a Republican who the Kennedy brothers had the FBI wiretap. He was not perfect. There was talk about him having extramarital affairs. A lot of people did, but it was not widely heard about thanks to the fact there was no alternative to the leftist media.
He preached pacifism and nonviolence but it seemed to follow wherever he went. White supremacy was much more pronounced then, especially in the South. Those white power advocates WERE DEMOCRATS — a fact glossed over in today’s telling of history. I heard a sound bite this morning of some black person, in a calm voice, talking about Black Lives Matter and Colin Coppernuts carrying on King’s legacy. His was a legacy of peace and racial harmony. Today’s racialists have no interest in coexistence. Their power lies in the feeble-minded who trust them strictly on the basis of their skin color who feed them the philosophy of hatred and resentment.
I recall rumors of Jesse Jackass being with him when he was killed. He allegedly took his shirt off, dipped it in King’s blood, and waved it like a bloody flag. That elevated him to some stature in the black community where he honed his skills in extorting money from white corporations and commanding his army of followers.
From Wiki:

Martin Luther King Jr., an American clergyman and civil rights leader, was shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968. He was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital, and was pronounced dead at 7:05 p.m. CST. He was a prominent leader of the Civil Rights Movement and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was known for his use of nonviolence and civil disobedience.
James Earl Ray, a fugitive from the Missouri State Penitentiary, was arrested on June 8, 1968, in London at Heathrow Airport, extradited to the United States, and charged with the crime. On March 10, 1969, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 99 years in the Tennessee State Penitentiary. He later made many attempts to withdraw his guilty plea and be tried by a jury, but was unsuccessful; he died in prison on April 23, 1998, at the age of 70.

There are many accounts in the media on this day, none of which are a true reflection of the man and tend to blame the Caucasian race for his death and all the ills in our society. I’ll not post any of it here.

Trump Supporter Attacked By 2 Women At DC Restaurant, Police Say
IF YOU SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU DARE NOT MENTION IT IN PUBLIC. MENTIONING HIS NAME TRIGGERS EXTREME VIOLENCE IN A LOT OF FOLK.
Cops are looking for two females who allegedly perpetrated the attack around 1 a.m. on March 16, outside the Surfside restaurant in northwest D.C.
According to Fox 5, the victim reported to police that she was involved in a conversation with the two women and a man who was with them, and at one point she stated, “I support Donald Trump.”
The victim said she drove herself to Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, for treatment of her injuries, according to police.
A silent, 43-second surveillance video clip from police shows a woman wearing a white jacket and crop top lunging toward a person off-camera who appears to be recording her. The woman apparently tries to snatch the camera as the video image shook.

Walker warns GOP ‘at risk of a #BlueWave’ after Democratic win in Wisconsin court race
THE STATE SUPREME COURT HAD BEEN 5-2 CONSERVATIVE. THEY UPHELD THE LAW STRIPPING UNIONS OF THE POWER TO FORCE MEMBERS TO PAY DUES, EVEN IF IT WENT TO POLITICAL IDEALS THEY DID NOT APPROVE OF. THE REPUBLICANS SPENT $400,000 ON THE RACE, THE DEMOCRATS SPENT MILLIONS. THEY TRIED TO DEFEAT WALKER UNSUCCESSFULLY 3 TIMES IN 4 YEARS. THEY HATE HIM ALMOST AS HOTLY AS THEY HATE THE PRESIDENT.
Liberal Rebecca Dallet trounced conservative Michael Screnock in the race for a 10-year term on the state’s high court. Screnock conceded the race, and results continued to trickle in late Tuesday showing Dallet with a double-digit lead.
Walker, who is up for re-election to a third term next fall, tweeted that the results were another sign that the GOP is in trouble.

New York Times Buries Surprise Study Results To Stoke Racism
A hallmark of the modern Democratic Party and Progressive Left in America is keeping racial tensions high. Whether affirmative action reverse discrimination — which is just discrimination — or college quotas or disparate impacts of any variety, the Left sees and lives through a prism of race either for social justice purposes or for cultural power purposes or electoral purposes.
The goal of racial harmony most certainly does not fit anywhere in the spectrum.
A recent New York Times article demonstrates this dynamic perfectly, and adds to the overflowing pot of evidence that most traditional media organizations can simply not be trusted to report honestly on race, along with the pantheon of other political and cultural issues.
“Tonight’s results show we are at risk of a #BlueWave in WI. The Far Left is driven by anger & hatred — we must counter it with optimism & organization. Let’s share our positive story with voters & win in November,” he tweeted.

NBC Faces Backlash for Publishing Claim That Christianity Is Used to ‘Prop Up’ White Supremacy on Easter
Wilson-Hartgrove, who authored the 2018 book Reconstructing the Gospel: Finding Freedom From Slaveholder Religion, warned that Christians must “reclaim redemption from those who would use it to prop up white nationalism and bigotry.”
Although faith played a major role for abolitionist and civil rights heroes throughout United States history such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Frederick Douglass, Wilson-Hartgrove explained that history shows that stories of faith have also been used for “evil in our world.”

Trump Administration Urged to End Obama-Era ‘Misstep’ of School Leniency Rules for Minority Students
Under the Obama policy, in place now in more than 50 school districts throughout the country, students whose behavior would have previously drawn an arrest or a suspension are instead referred to “teen courts” or “restorative justice talking circles.” Students who receive such referrals could still be able to purchase a firearm even though they may have a history of violent behavior or threats.
This “disparate impact” policy is based on the assertion that minority students are disciplined at higher rates because of systemic racism by teachers and school administrators.
JUST A WILD GUESS… MAYBE THEY’RE TAUGHT CRIMINALITY IS ACCEPTABLE WHEN YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH IT.

Superheroes Fawn Over Young ‘Barry’ Obama in ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’
In the April 2 episode “Guest Starring John Noble,” the time-traveling superheroes set out to protect the first black president during his college years when he’s targeted by a telepathic gorilla known as Grodd who actually utters the phrase “time to make America Grodd again.”
Yes, everything in the show, including a young Barack Obama, is just as on the nose as that.
Team leader Sara (Caity Lotz) later even goes to college-aged Barry for advice since he’s “someone who can think straight when the whole world has gone crazy.” Right. That’s Barack Obama (pictured during his college days in the image to the right), so honorable and wise that even as a college student he’s beyond reproach.

Graham: Dems roll out welcome mat for caravan

“We demand of the United­ States … that they open the border to us because we are as much citizens as the (American) people are.” — Pueblo Sin Fronteras, on behalf of the caravan of illegal immigrants from Central America headed to the U.S. border.
A little tip if I may, mi amigos, as you caravan your way to the land of free milk and honey (not to mention housing and health care): Drop the “demand” lingo. It’s counterproductive. And besides, you don’t have to “demand” anything. America’s Democrats are more than happy to give it to you.

Donald Trump Proposes Guarding Southern Border with the Military
THIS INVADING ARMY OF PARASITES DON’T BELIEVE THEY CAN BE STOPPED FROM JUMPING ON THE GRAVY TRAIN
Trump confirmed in an afternoon press conference on Tuesday that he does intend to use military force to secure the border.
“We are preparing to have the military to secure our border between Mexico and the United States,” Trump said when reporters questioned him for more details. He said he would be meeting with Mattis and other security officials to discuss the issue soon.

THEY WILL NOT BE DEPLOYED IN TIME TO STOP THESE INVADERS

It Happens Every Year

This is MLK’s birthday, a national holiday. It is also the day when the Democrats’ blatant hypocrisy is raised to a new level. They use King’s memory to suck up to the useful idiots who are unaware they’re being sold a complete bill of goods. Every other day of the year they stand four-square against everything he stood for. Were he still alive he’d be treated like Justice Thomas, Senator Tim Scott, and every other black who has left the plantation.
But for this one day they invoke his memory, spout platitudes, and preach about living his “dream,” all while spouting hatred for anyone of the wrong color or ideology.

THESE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THEIR PRESS CREDENTIAL REVOKED.

30 Seconds After Trump Signs MLK Day, Reporter Shouts, “Are You a Racist?”

President Donald Trump on Friday signed a proclamation to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, saying it is a day to mourn his loss, celebrate his legacy and pledge to fight for his dream of equality, freedom, justice and peace.

Thirty seconds later, WH Correspondent April Ryan shouted, “Are you a racist?”  As President Trump was exiting the signing ceremony, another reporter yelled ‘sh*thole’ at him.

Lifes good‏
@Lifesgo58780206
Hey April Ryan Are you a Racist ?? You are a hateful, rude, disrespectful reporter who never gets the facts right. If anyone’s racist it’s April Ryan!

FilthyPig #Aprilryan has the temerity to yell at POTUS such a revolting ludicrous disgusting piece of slanderous libel it IS SHOCKING!

Two sourpuss Dems will childishly skip the State of the Union; surely Trump is devastated by the news

House Democrats Maxine Waters and John Lewis will skip President Trump’s first State of the Union address because they’re furious that he allegedly called some impoverished, crime-riddled African nations “sh*tholes.”

“I don’t trust him, I don’t appreciate him, and I wouldn’t waste my time listening to what he has to say,” Waters fumed to MSNBC. “He does not deserve my attention.”

At this point, it really makes no difference that Waters, 79, and Lewis, 77, continue to flout their duties by skipping presidential addresses and meetings. President Trump is moving along with his agenda despite widespread Democratic obstruction.

I ONLY INCLUDED THIS LINK BECAUSE OF THIS PICTURE.

Both Waters and Lewis will have to answer to their constituents as to why they’re sitting at home, collecting their paychecks from taxpayers, while not doing their jobs. The State of the Union address is set for January 30.

THEIR CONSTITUENTS DON’T GIVE A RAT’S PATOOT. THAY HATE TRUMP AS MUCH AS THESE TWO CLOWNS DO.

CNN Says Socialism Is ‘Cool’ In MLK Day Tweet

CNN declared that MLK was an “environmental hero” and a socialist, “before it was cool,” in a tweet Monday morning.

The tweet was sent from the main CNN account with almost 40 million followers. The adjoining article in the tweet was entitled ‘Three ways MLK speaks to our time’ and features a breakdown of MLK’s relevance in today’s political climate.
The article describes how some historians classify MLK as a socialist, and goes on to make the case that socialism is very hip these days for youths who “are developing a distrust of capitalism.”

[CtH: And by “developing”, they really mean “having it spoon fed to them by leftist teachers.”]

Dr. Alveda King Counters Trump ‘Racism’ Claims, Slams Facebook for Blocking Pro-Life Message

“Just now … [Trump signed] the bill that was sponsored by Congressman John Lewis making the Martin Luther King Jr. historic site in Atlanta a national park — the first park to be named after an African-American man,” King continued.

She defended the president against a rash of new “racism” accusations supposedly stemming from vulgar remarks Democratic staffers are claiming Trump made about third-world countries that send the United States massive numbers of immigrants.

[CtH: She’s about as popular with Democrats as Clarence Thomas is and as her uncle would be if he were alive today, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and proclaiming an end to judging people by their skin color.]

Mitt Romney Uses Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to Attack Donald Trump

Romney wrote: “The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Last summer, Romney criticized President Trump’s response to violence in Charlottesville, accusing him of moral equivalence between neo-Nazis and those opposing “racism and bigotry” — but without noting that the latter had disrupted a lawful, permitted protest.

Democrats accused Romney himself of racism when he ran for president in 2012, particularly when he accused Barack Obama supporters of voting for “free stuff,” and when he joked that “no one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.”

On the shoulders of a giant

2017_01-15-mlk-day-by-terrell

If MLK were alive today, the Democrats would be calling him the same names they use for Justice Clarence Thomas, Doctor Ben Carson, and Senator Tim Scott, because he was opposed to abortion and most likely voted Republican.

I googled his abortion stance and found that, while he did receive the Margaret Sanger award, it was at a time when Planned Parenthood was itself repudiating abortion, at least publicly.  Sanger’s support for abortion and her rabid racism have both been well documented but only in more recent years.  MLK was pro-birth control, but made many statements against abortion.

I also googled his Republicanism and found the Left whining a lot about how it has never been confirmed.  He apparently never got political, but it is easily confirmed that the Republican Party was the primary force behind civil rights legislation.  Northern Democrats were for it, but Southern Democrats were opposed.  The DNC claims undue credit only because their racist president, LBJ, was more or less forced to sign it.

Charlton Heston: Winning the Cultural War

I have to wonder if it would even occur to anyone at Harvard today to invite the president of the NRA to give a speech or, if they did, whether the Leftist Thugocrats would permit the speech to happen.

1999_02 16 Charlton Heston at Harvard Winning the Cultural War

Charlton Heston: Winning the Cultural War

Delivered Feb. 16, 1999, Austin Hall, Harvard Law School

Thank you very much, both for that warm response to the introduction and the introduction.

You know, very often people with public faces are introduced with the simple phrase, “Now, ladies and gentlemen, a man who needs no introduction.” Believe me, you could always use a good introduction. No, no, no, you laugh, you laugh, but it’s true. I have a story that proves it, true story — didn’t happen to me, happened to a friend of mine: Kirk Douglas. This was when Ben Hur was in release, more or less all over.

And Kirk said he was walking on a street near his home in Beverly Hills one evening after dinner when he was approached very politely by a stranger who said, “Excuse me, sir, I don’t like interfering in the private lives of public people but I cannot let pass this opportunity to tell you what a deeply moving and enormously creative performance you gave in Ben Hur.” And Kirk said, “Well thanks very much but that wasn’t me; that was another fellow.” And the man stood back amazed. He said, “Well if you aren’t Burt Lancaster, who the hell are you?”

So, I’m glad we’ve made it clear right at the outset that I’m not Burt Lancaster.

I remember when my son was five, explaining to his kindergarten class what his father did for a living. “My daddy,” he said, “pretends to be people.”

That’s not bad, actually. That’s about it. There have been quite a few of them. Prophets from the Old and the New Testaments, couple of Christian saints, generals of various nationalities and different centuries, several kings, three American presidents, a French cardinal and two geniuses, including Michelangelo. If you’d like me to work on this ceiling, I’ll be glad to my best. No, it’s just that there always seem to be a lot of different fellows up here and I’m never entirely certain which one of them gets to talk. Right now, I guess I’m the guy.

As I pondered our visit tonight it struck me: if my Creator gave me the gift to connect you with the hearts and minds of those great men I mentioned, then I want to use that same gift now to re-connect you with your own sense of liberty, your own freedom of thought, your own compass for what is right.

Dedicating the memorial at Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln said of America, “We are now engaged in a great Civil War, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.”

Those words are true again. I believe that we are again engaged in a great civil war, a cultural war that’s about to hijack your birthright to think and say what lives in your heart. I’m sure you no longer trust the pulsing lifeblood of liberty inside you, the stuff that made this country rise from wilderness into the miracle that it is.

Let me back up a little. About a year or two ago, I became president of the National Rifle Association, which protects the right to keep and bear arms of American citizens. I ran for office. I was elected, and now I serve. I serve as a moving target for the media who’ve called me everything from “ridiculous” and “duped” to a “brain-injured, senile, crazy old man.” I know, I’m pretty old, but I sure Lord ain’t senile.

As I’ve stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I’ve realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it’s much, much bigger than that. I’ve come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain accepted thoughts and speech are mandated.

For example, I marched for civil rights with Dr. King in 1963 — and long before Hollywood found it acceptable, I may say. But when I told an audience last year that white pride is just as valid as black pride or red pride or anyone else’s pride, they called me a racist.

I’ve worked with brilliantly talented homosexuals all my life — throughout my whole career. But when I told an audience that gay rights should extend no further than your rights or my rights, I was called a homophobe.

I served in World War II against the Axis powers. But during a speech, when I drew an analogy between singling out the innocent Jews and singling out innocent gun owners, I was called an anti-Semite.

Everyone I know knows I would never raise a closed fist against my country. But when I asked an audience to oppose this cultural persecution I’m talking about, I was compared to Timothy McVeigh.

From Time magazine to friends and colleagues, they’re essentially saying, “Chuck, how dare you speak your mind like that. You are using language not authorized for public consumption.”

But I am not afraid. If Americans believed in political correctness, we’d still be King George’s boys — subjects bound to the British crown.

In his book The End of Sanity, Martin Gross writes that

…blatantly irrational behavior is rapidly being established as the norm in almost every area of human endeavor. There seem to be new customs, new rules, new anti-intellectual theories regularly twisted on us — foisted on us from every direction. Underneath, the nation is roiling. Americans know something without a name is undermining the country, turning the mind mushy when it comes to separating truth from falsehood and right from wrong. And they don’t like it.

Let me read you a few examples.

  • At Antioch College in Ohio, young men speaking and seeking intimacy with a coed must get verbal permission at each step of the process, from kissing to petting to final, at last, copulation — all clearly spelled out in a printed college directive.
  • In New Jersey, despite the death of several patients nationwide who’d been infected by dentists who had concealed their own AIDS, the state commissioner announced that health providers who are HIV-positive need not — need not! — tell their patients that they are infected.
  • At William and Mary, students tried to change the name of the school team “The Tribe” because it was supposedly insulting to local Indians, only to learn that authentic Virginia chiefs really like the name, “The Tribe.”
  • In San Francisco, city fathers passed an ordinance protecting the rights of transvestites to cross-dress on the job, and for transsexuals to have separate toilet facilities while undergoing sex change surgery.
  • In New York City, kids who didn’t speak a word of Spanish had been placed in bilingual classes to learn their three R’s in Spanish solely because their own names sound Hispanic.
  • At the University of Pennsylvania, in a state where thousands died at Gettysburg opposing slavery, the president of that college officially set up segregated dormitory space for black students.

Yeah, I know, that’s out of bounds now. Dr. King said “Negroes.” Jimmy Baldwin and most of us on the March said “black.” But it’s a no-no now.

For me, hyphenated identities are awkward, particularly “Native-American.” I’m a Native American, for God’s sake. I also happen to be a blood-initiated brother of the Miniconjou Sioux. On my wife’s side, my grandson’s a twelfth generation native-American, with a capital letter on “American.”

Finally, just last month, David Howard, head of the Washington D.C. Office of Public Advocate, used the word “niggardly” while talking about budgetary matters with some colleagues. Of course, “niggardly” means stingy or scanty. But within days, Howard was forced to publicly apologize and then resign.

As columnist Tony Snow wrote:

David Howard got fired because some people in public employ were morons who (a) didn’t know the meaning of ‘niggardly,’ (b) don’t know how to use a dictionary to discover the meaning, and (c) actually demanded that he apologize for their ignorance.

Now, what does all of this mean? Among other things, it means that telling us what to think has evolved into telling us what to say, so telling us what to do can’t be far behind. Before you claim to be a champion of free thought, tell me: Why did political correctness originate on America’s campuses? And why do you continue to — to tolerate it? Why do you, who’re supposed to debate ideas, surrender to their suppression?

Let’s be honest. Who here in this room thinks your professors can say what they really believe? (Uh-huh. There’s a few….) Well, that scares me to death, and it should scare you too, that the superstition of political correctness rules the halls of reason.

You are the best and the brightest. You, here in this fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle of learning on the Charles River. You are the cream. But I submit that you and your counterparts across the land are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that and abide it, you are, by your grandfathers’ standards, cowards.

Here’s another example. Right now at more than one major university, Second Amendment scholars and researchers are being told to shut up about their findings or they’ll lose their jobs. But why? Because their research findings would undermine big-city mayors’ pending lawsuits that seek to extort hundreds of millions of dollars from firearm manufacturers.

Now, I don’t care what you think about guns. But if you are not shocked at that, I am shocked at you. Who will guard the raw material of unfettered ideas, if not you? Democracy is dialogue. Who will defend the core values of academia, if you, the supposed soldiers of free thought and expression lay down your arms and plead, “Don’t shoot me.”

If you talk about race, it does not make you a racist. If you see distinctions between the genders, it does not make you sexist. If you think critically about a denomination, it does not make you anti-religion. If you accept but don’t celebrate homosexuality, it does not make you a homophobe.

Don’t let America’s universities continue to serve as incubators for this rampant epidemic of new McCarthyism. That’s what it is: New McCarthyism. But, what can you do? How can anyone prevail against such pervasive social subjugation?

Well, the answer’s been here all along. I learned it 36 years ago, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., standing with Dr. Martin Luther King and two hundred thousand people.

You simply disobey. Peaceably, yes. Respectfully, of course. Nonviolently, absolutely. But when told how to think or what to say or how to behave, we don’t. We disobey the social protocol that stifles and stigmatizes personal freedom.

I learned the awesome power of disobedience from Dr. King who learned it from Gandhi, and Thoreau, and Jesus, and every other great man who led those in the right against those with the might.

Disobedience is in our DNA. We feel innate kinship with that disobedient spirit that tossed tea into Boston Harbor, that sent Thoreau to jail, that refused to sit in the back of the bus, that protested a war in Viet Nam.

In that same spirit, I’ m asking you to disavow cultural correctness with massive disobedience of rogue authority, social directives, and onerous laws that weaken personal freedom.

But be careful. It hurts. Disobedience demands that you put yourself at risk. Dr. King stood on lots of balconies. You must be willing to be humiliated, to endure the modern-day equivalent of the police dogs at Montgomery and the water Cannons at Selma. You must be willing to experience discomfort. Now, I’m not complaining, but my own decades of social activism have left their mark on me. Let me tell you a story.

A few years ago, I heard about a — a rapper named Ice-T who was selling a CD called “Cop Killer,” celebrating the ambushing and of murdering police officers. It was being marketed by none other than Time/Warner, the biggest entertainment conglomerate in the country — in the world. Police across the country were outraged. And rightfully so. At least one of them had been murdered. But Time/Warner was stonewalling because the CD was a cash cow for them, and the media were tiptoeing around because the rapper was black. I heard Time/Warner had a stockholders meeting scheduled in Beverly Hills, and I owned some shares of Time/Warner at the time, so I decided to attend the meeting.

What I did was against the advice of my family and my colleagues. I asked for the floor. To a hushed room of a thousand average American stockholders, I simply read the full lyrics of “Cop Killer” — every vicious, vulgar, instructional word:

I got my 12-Gauge sawed-off. I got my headlights turned off. I’m about to bust some shots off. I’m about to dust some cops off.

It got worse, a lot worse. Now, I won’t read the rest of it to you. But trust me, the room was a sea of shocked, frozen, blanched faces. Time/Warner executives squirmed in their chairs and stared at their shoes. They hated me for that. Then I delivered another volley of sick lyrics brimming with racist filth, where Ice-T fantasizes about sodomizing the two 12-year-old nieces of Al and Tipper Gore:

She pushed her butt against my —

No. No, I won’t do to you here what I did to them. Let’s just say I left the room in stunned silence. When I read the lyrics to the waiting press corps outside, one of them said, “We can’t print that, you know.”

“I know,” I said, “but Time/Warner is still selling it.”

Two months later, Time/Warner terminated Ice-T’s contract. I’ll never be offered another film by Warner Brothers, or get a good review from Time magazine. But disobedience means you have to be willing to act, not just talk.

Protesters vs Thugs

When a mugger sues his elderly victim for defending herself, jam the switchboard of the district attorney’s office. When your university is pressured — your university — is pressured to lower standards until 80% of the students graduate with honors, choke the halls of the Board of Regents. When an 8-year-old boy pecks a girl’s cheek on the playground and then gets hauled into court for sexual harassment, march on that school and block its doorways. When someone you elected is seduced by political power and betrays you — petition them, oust them, banish them. When Time magazine’s cover portrays millennium nuts as deranged, crazy Christians holding a cross as it did last month, boycott their magazine and the products it advertises.

So that this nation may long endure, I urge you to follow in the hallowed footsteps of the great disobediences of history that freed exiles, founded religions, defeated tyrants, and yes, in the hands of an aroused rabble in arms and a few great men, by God’s grace, built this country.

If Dr. King were here, I think he would agree.

I thank you.

THE MLK HYPOCRISY CONTINUES

It gets sickening,but it works on the LIVs,so the left will ride this tried and true Trojan Horse for decades to come,thanks to our education rendering our children into automatons incapable of independent thought. Democrats,especially black ones,use the memory of Rev. King to justify their own racism,while perverting his most basic tenet… judging people by their character instead of their race. With leftists,race is the first and practically only consideration. It’s their stock in trade. Their voters are so inherently lazy that if they don’t keep them angry at something,even if it’s blatantly false, they’d never motivate them to be professional voters.

The most infuriating thing,to me,is that MLK would be shunned by the left and we all know it. First,he was a republican. Second,he preached love,not hate; peace,not intolerance. I cannot get the image of Jesse Jackass dipping his shirt in a pool of Rev. King’s blood in May,1968 and waving it like a flag,announcing himself as a standard bearer for what would become a booming race-baiting profession.

Black Caucus members invoke MLK at Ferguson church service

Leading black members of Congress took to a church pulpit in Ferguson, Missouri, on Sunday to trace a direct link from Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy to the fight for criminal justice reform after recent fatal police shootings across the U.S.

Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr. spoke to parishioners at Wellspring United Methodist Church, just blocks from where violent protests broke out after a Ferguson officer shot 18-year-old Michael Brown and again after a grand jury declined to indict the officer.

THE RACIAL HATRED FLOWED LIKE WATER.

Orca,the Killer Ho,decided she had enough money to throw away half her audience when she fell to slobbering over a bag of nothing named Barry Obama. Then all the racialists were in a snit because there were no actors nominated for an Oscar that looked like him. As an aside,both ‘Selma’ and ‘American Sniper’ debuted this weekend. Selma grossed $32 million; Sniper made over $90 M.

Not Just a Movie

It’s not very often I reference anything from the NY Slimes,especially Maureen Dowd. At Free Republic,any reference to MoDo must be accompanied by pictures of Catherine Zeta-Jones,who Michael Douglas latched onto and summarily threw MoDo over the side. She’s been a bitter,drunken waste of time ever since. Her column is mostly in praise of this perversion of the facts surrounding the March to Selma,but there was this:

Many of the teenagers by me bristled at the power dynamic between the men. It was clear that a generation of young moviegoers would now see L.B.J.’s role in civil rights through DuVernay’s lens.

And that’s a shame. I loved the movie and find the Oscar snub of its dazzling actors repugnant. But the director’s talent makes her distortion of L.B.J. more egregious. Artful falsehood is more dangerous than artless falsehood, because fewer people see through it.

DuVernay told Rolling Stone that, originally, the script was more centered on the L.B.J.-M.L.K. relationship and was “much more slanted to Johnson.”

“I wasn’t interested in making a white-savior movie,” she said.

That should tell you all you need to know.

THEN,THE BLOB THAT ATE MINNESOTA WAS FEELING IGNORED

Michael Moore Spits on Corpse of American Hero Chris Kyle – Praises Iraqis Who Killed Americans

Warner Bros. is reporting that American Sniper is set to post a Friday-through-Sunday of $90.2M with a cume to date of $93.6M. By tomorrow, with the MLK holiday, the Village Roadshow co-prod cume is looking to post a four-day of $105.2M and an overall cume of $108.6M. Unheard of for any wide release at this time of year. What record did the movie American Sniper NOT break?

This news prompted America-hater and leftist hero Michael Moore to tweet out this:

My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse

Michael Moore Calls Kyle a Coward, but had Nine Bodyguards

STILL HUNGRY,MOORE WAS SPOTTED CRAWLING TOWARD NORTH DAKOTA

jabba_II

Michael Moore, a lefty troll most people forgot even existed, made headlines for calling Chris Kyle a coward. Moore however is a profile in courage. After making the anti-American movie Fahrenheit 9/11 for which he was reviled by everyone from author Ray Bradbury on down, he claimed to have nine bodyguards.

In one of his books, he described the men as ex-Navy SEALS.

MLK Jr Only love

MLK and BHO by Terrell

Everyday is opposite day in the Obama White House. When asked if the U.S. is more racially divided than it was when he took office six years ago, the President responded: “No, I actually think that it’s probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided.”

A heart full of grace

Whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. Mark 10:43

2013 Trig Palin decorating Cmas tree

Some people feel like a small pebble lost in the immensity of a canyon. But no matter how insignificant we judge ourselves to be, we can be greatly used by God.

In a sermon early in 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. quoted Jesus’ words from Mark 10 about servanthood. Then he said, “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. . . . You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.”

Why I don’t like the Obamas by Mychal Massie

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.

At :10, Obama refers to our armed forces as “my military”
