‘Shut up white b*tch’: Stacey Dash quotes MLK Jr., gets attacked for ‘calling blacks negro’

Outspoken actress Stacey Dash marked the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech by tweeting quotes from the great civil rights leader.

More via TwitPlus:

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people. For many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied to our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We can not walk alone. – Martin Luther King #MLKDream50

I have a dream that one day this Nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its CREED: ” We hold these truths to be self evident; THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL.” – Martin Luther King #MLKDream50 #MLK50

This will be the day when all of Gods children will be able to sing with NEW MEANING MY country, tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing: Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims’ pride, From every mountainside Let freedom ring. – Martin Luther King #MLK50 #MLKDream50

She ended by declaring, “That day is today.”

Amen.

As always, race-obsessed cretins are wallowing in the valley of hate, attacking a conservative minority who dares to speak her mind.

The most pitiful reaction? This mouth-breather who lashed out at Dash for using the word “negro” … even though she was quoting Dr. King.

Yes, clearly you “didn’t read it,” genius.

Let freedom ring!

    Ummm, rail splitter, MLK was a registered republican.

    • Peyton

      Dpav, you know the left doesn’t do so well with facts.

      • LC60

        No, they never have and never will. Pathetic, that they disrespect such a beautiful person, who was only reciting MLK’s speech. This gives you only a smidgen of how they are treating MLK’s own niece, Dr. Alveda King, who actually stands for everything HE stood for. It speaks volumes.

        • John Bovenzi

          That’s because they have Al and Jesse who trump MLK these days! MLK might have as well lived 1,000 years ago, these people have forgotten his words and what he strove for. Instead we have Al and Jesse spewing hatred and purposely driving a wedge between blacks and whites! Let’s not forget Obama who “if” he had a son he would have looked like Trayvon.. but not any of the recent murders that we have seen in the news.

          • ED Hamlin

            What needs to be done is for those who voice their ire of the left to step outside and start educating the misinformed america on the truth. Keep the focus on the truth. Al & similar cronies will self destruct just be patient.

        • KataKimbe

          Dr. Aveda King also says that MLK Jr. was not a Republican but an Independent.

          • Stevie

            Not true, she has said many times that he was a Republican!! That most of the family is Republican and always have been! I love to watch and listen to her, I’ve followed her for years.

          • Zeeb

            Obviously you all do not do well with facts either. The Republican Party of today is not the same party it was at the time of emancipation. The same way the Democratic Party of today is not the party it was in Jim CrowSouth.

      • pepjrp

        These people that hated on Stacey are not really the Left either. They need to have their own category.

        • Cherry Walker

          They do…thugs !

      • Craig Thomson

        That is a broad generalization about the left and completely unsupportable, also known as NOT A FACT. These are widely disseminated by the Hard Right, also known as extremists.

        Have you ever heard of the Center? Or Moderates?

    • Moonbeam

      Do you have proof of that?

      David Garrow, who wrote a Pulitzer Prize winning biography of King, stated “It’s simply incorrect to call Dr. King a Republican.”

      King, according to Garrow, did hold some Republicans — including Richard Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller — in high regard. He also was harshly critical of Lyndon Johnson’s escalation of the Vietnam War.

      In 2008, King’s son Martin Luther King III said “It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican.” Garrow claimed there is little doubt King voted for Kennedy in 1960 and Johnson in 1964.

      http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2013/08/28/2540251/martin-luther-king-republican/

      You keep on believing that.

      If King were still alive today, he’d be given the same treatment that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are given by Fox News now. He’d be tossed in with the so-called “race hustlers” that Hannity and O’Reilly like to get all incensed about.

      King critiqued both parties’ performance on promoting racial equality:

      “Actually, the Negro has been betrayed by both the Republican and the Democratic party. The Democrats have betrayed him by capitulating to the whims and caprices of the Southern Dixiecrats. The Republicans have betrayed him by capitulating to the blatant hypocrisy of reactionary right wing northern Republicans. And this coalition of southern Dixiecrats and right wing reactionary northern Republicans defeats every bill and every move towards liberal legislation in the area of civil rights.”

      Although King never publicly supported a political party or candidate for president, in a letter to a civil rights supporter in October 1956 he said that he was undecided as to whether he would vote for Adlai Stevenson or Dwight Eisenhower, but that “In the past I always voted the Democratic ticket.”[34] In his autobiography, King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy: “I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one.” King adds that he likely would have made an exception to his non-endorsement policy for a second Kennedy term, saying “Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964.”[35].

        .
        And YOU keep on believing that. Keep spreading that message of race-baiting hate instead of trying to be part of the solution. Some of us actually believe in MLK Jrs dream. You are obviously not one of them.

        • Cee

          Wrong. King was not a race hustler like Sharpton, Jackson, and company.

          • Clayton Grant

            You might try to follow the entire conversation before sticking your foot in your mouth, Cee.

          • crosshr

            maybe Cee did not quantify the point you made which I support, but support it at the same time without noticing like different seats we all sit in but same car to San Jose !

          • nell

            That’s why they had him killed….He was going to stop them!!!!

          • smooresdel

            Satirist was quoting Aruana Zeelie and you are right that Dr. King wasn’t and Sharp and Jackson are.

        • grais

          He/she seems to think of Dr. King as similar in spirit and message to Jackson and Sharpton.
          such a shame.

          • Guest

            You are replying to Satirist but those are quotes aroubnd the statement refering to Aruana Zeelie..

          • smooresdel

            Nice to know! That’s a different spelling.
            .
            People are still misreading my original comment to Aruana by the dozens!

          • grais

            and my name isn’t Grace, either, it’s just a play on my eye color. ; )

            Almost 700 comments in this thread. It gets confusing. lol.
            Aruana made such a mess that I haven’t seen many comments at all about the ignorant, racist attacks on Stacey Dash.

          • Tom Rork

            If so many do not grasp your meaning, msybe it’s your message that is not clear?

          • crosshr

            hah, sorry g.
            satrist and Cee are shooting at same direction into enemy territory. PLEASE NO FRIENDLY FIRE ! lol

            Sure. Especially me!

            But it doesn’t matter here.
            I just had a weird need to set the record straight.

          • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

            Not weird. Keep on keepin’ on conservative lady.

            My apologies on my poor assumption, by the way. I kinda blew off editing lesson plan changes to keep up “the” conversation today. Check this out. It is the best yet. His reading ability is a testament to our schools.

          The Black Community is in free fall, and instead of holding those responsible accountable, they viciously attack those holding out solutions, hope and promise. Same slavery, different century.

          • fcalsnoe

            Free fall is putting it kindly. I’m done with ’em and tired of being called names and ready to support the amnesty bill just to watch the final demise. Tired of the whining and sniveling po me po me, it’s all whitys fault. Oprah Sharpton and all the rest have left a bad taste in my mouth.

          • Korban Dallas

            And ‘the rest’ also include highly successful actors such as Morgan Freeman, Danny Glover, Denzel Washington…..on and on and on. People who cry about Blacks not getting a fair shake in the Film Industry. Lol

          • Jarvis Vetch

            Trixiewoobeans: Very good point; though it’s the same slavery, it’s a different slave owner: The Race Baiters.

        • Dee Jackson

          Fox news has treated Allen West, Condoleeza Rice, Mia Love, and others with due respect. They do the same to Al Sharpton, he just isn’t due very much! He helps perpetuate racism, because that is where he makes his money!

          • LC60

            Amen, Dee.

          • pepjrp

            Dee, you are a lady after all of our hearts. :)

          • rufus

            amen to that Dee Jackson

        • Linda

          and actually you are wrong. MLK would denounce them as he did Malcolm X. He was a very nonviolent man and these men spout violence and hate. MLK worked alongside many many many white people who were republicans while the democrats continued to beat rape and murder many black people. Jim crow law is Democrat law. Until you actually learn your history and stop having people feed it to you, you will never get any further then you are. MLK would be disgusted with the youth today. Disrespecting women knocking over elderly . NO RESPECT. And do remember MLK was a preacher..Which the liberals HATE. they HATE God. so no the liberals would not except him at all. He preached from The Holy Bible…and did not teach Black Theology.

          • Stan Anderson

            Right on. Whites ,blacks ,hispanics need to support the accountability and responsibility brought forth by the Black community abn denounce the ever so little minority of Blacks who garner all the headlines.

          • Clayton Grant

            Wow … so many people who cannot follow a simple conversation.

          • inaguddadavita

            I know right…seems the bandwagon of ignorance has pull up beside these people and said climb aboard ignorant bastards

          • MsLile

            Martin Luther King Jr was a wonderful man…..he had intregity that sharpton/Jackson and others don’t have today….I lived through that era of his dream….I cried my eyes out the day I heard the news that he had been killed….he was a blessing for the very short time that we had him…..and he is still speaking….the question is…..”Are we listening?”……??????

        • Raymond Smith

          Man, you are one uneducated illiterate dumbass.

          • Clayton Grant

            How so Raymond? Educate me, please.

          • Mickey

            Because MLK was a conservative Republican who believed in personal responsibility, strong family values and equality for all. He would be disgusted at what has happened to the family in the black community. 78% of babies are born out of wedlock. Just that alone is a slap in the face to everything Dr. King stood for. He was nothing like sharpton or Jackson do some reading.

          • Stan Anderson

            Titally agree Mickey. Time for the Black community to man up and live out the dream MLK brought this country.

          • shane hudson

            The problem… there aren’t to many real men left in this country. Our society is based on right now.. hit it and quit it. A close friend of mine quote made a lasting impression on the mind set on an African American ” you always have to have a pair and a spare.” in relation to sexual partners. No self respect no self discipline no moral values. our culture

          • Clayton Grant

            You seem to have reading comprehension issues Mickey. See those quotation marks on my comment and whom I was replying to?

            Sorry, I had the same problem. Read my other post where I apologize.

          • KataKimbe

            Actually, I have looked and looked and there is nothing that proves this fact. If you ask his Republican niece, Dr. Aveda King, she says he was an Independent. MLK Jr’s father was a registered Republican. To keep spreading something that is not true does not help the cause.

          • MyselfMeI

            I wonder how many unmarried black couples who do live as a family with their children, (and have been together for a number of years) there are statistically? This is not always a good situation, just as it isn’t always in other groups, but I do know they are out there- and possibly being written down as simply “out-of-wedlock births” when the couple lives as though it is married?

          • Americangirl1964

            I`m sorry but it does appear that way. I don `t know these people. Don’t know if they are black or white if they don’t show a picture. But as a non racist white person , who also misunderstood the post by Satirist the first time reading it, I want to apologize for the uncalled for abuse she is getting here. So glad she is a strong enough person to take in her stride. God bless her and all of you defending her without getting ugly about it.

          • Le Chiffre

            Stacey is one of many great Black Conservatives. All of which understand TRUE racism.. because they experience it daily, from the left. By simply admitting they’re conservative, they are ostracized and worse yet, harassed (as you see above) to amounts you and I will never experience by the black community who’ve chosen to live on the green mile known as liberalism. They’re taught by clowns like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to follow a single path. It’s truly sad.

            I really do look up to Black Conservatives, to say the least. I appreciate them more than they’ll ever know. Other great ones right now: Clarence Thomas, Larry Elder, Dr. Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Elbert Guillory, Wayne Dupree, many many more. Each one of these guys, you’ll find a list as long as the day of flak they get constantly from the left.. lies, distortions, “uncle Tom’s,” etc.

            Raymond was not the only one to misread Satirists post. I and some others did too. But he should not have gotten ugly with his reply. That is uncalled for. I hate when people do that instead of saying something intelligent. Usually its the liberals who resort to that. Glad you and Satirist are keeping your cool. Name calling is a useless way to try to make a point.

          No, he’d be given the same treatment as Herman Cain, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, Kevin Jackson and other patriotic black Americans: called racist names by liberal un-Americans, black And white.

          • Clayton Grant

            You realize I was quoting Aruana Zeelie, right? Those quotation marks are pesky little things.

          • Philnumber3

            Yes, I did. I was commenting on AZ’s post that you quoted. I was actually agreeing with you and showing how black liberals treat those blacks who have figured out why after 50+ years of liberal welfare used to secure democratic votes, blacks are as bad off as ever.

          • HWarrior13

            You know, the number of blacks jumping off the Democratic plantation are beginning to stack up lately.

            Me thinks if this trend continues, the Leftists are really going to get even more “wee-wee’d up”

            My apologies as I made the same error like so many others did and followed their lead. I deserved to be chastised and will be more careful next time. My emotions were running high too feeling bad for this woman.

          MLK was nothing like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. He didn’t try to incite hatred. He wanted everyone to live peacefully together. You disgrace his name by linking him with these two lunatics. I do believe Fox News is smart enough to tell the difference.

          Satirist…….I owe you an apology. Just like a lot of others I misread your statement and took the first paragraph to be yours. After re-reading I now understand that you are disagreeing with the statement and what you are really saying. Thank you. I so agree with you. Disregard my earlier post. It should have gone to Aruana Zeeie.

          • trixiewoobeans

            Nice of you to do. I’ve misread before and felt an apology was called for, and did.

        • runnindeer

          When you said that king was harshly critical of Johnson you linked him in with Republicans.
          You need to check closer on your History. L. B. Johnson was not a Republican. He was president after Kennedy was killed . The vice president who became president then and who was re elected to the next 4 years after that was Democrat. Johnson did more for blacks who receive welfare assistance than anyone has up until this man in the White House now. Your rant about FOX is clearly BS. FOX has been giving Kings speech and King more coverage that is positive than the Liberal main stream media. I watch them all so this statement is not opinion.

          • Guest

            You really need to try and follow the conversation.

          • runnindeer

            you are really in a rut aren’t you. Calling yourself “satirist ‘ is ridiculous as well. Satire is an art form that you obviously could never have. You don’t have the literary talent to be able to use anything except the same tired retort at posters who are obviously following what you say clearly. you are unable to form adequate response because you are wrong.

          • Guest

            Instead of actually going back to see if you may have missed something, you double down on your condescension. That is special!
            .
            You missed where I was quoting another poster. The give-away was not only the actual quotation marks, but it was also in italics.
            .
            Do you know what your biggest problem in this conversation is? Here’s a hint: It’s you.

          • grais

            Maybe in addition to the quotation marks and italics, you should have typed out, “Quote, unquote” and used a bold font for the whole thing. Or you could have typed, ” I am quoting someone else now.”
            But then we wouldn’t have had all the chuckles. Maybe.

            I hope.

          • runnindeer

            No. After rereading every post that is on this page today I still see that you are obviously repeating yourself. I do see that your post is a quote by AruanaZeelie who posted to Dpav and her post was a quote by David Garrow. That was my error. For that I apologize( to you. ) It was error on either Garrows part or AruanaZeelie since the original post was that persons. The post was written in a way that made it appear that King linked Johnson in with Republicans.

            you realize wellfare gives money to women who have kids and penalizes them for being married right? it encourages being a single mother with no job. the wellfare system actually is the turning point when african americans started a downward trend into what they are stereotyped for being today. before commenting on wellfare, you should at least know what it is.

          Sharpton and Jackson are not”so called”racebaiters.

      • Clayton Grant

        “If King were still alive today, he’d be given the same treatment that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are given by Fox News now. He’d be tossed in with the so-called “race hustlers” that Hannity and O’Reilly like to get all incensed about.”
        .
        And YOU keep on believing that. Keep spreading that message of race-baiting hate instead of trying to be part of the solution. Some of us actually believe in MLK Jrs dream. You are obviously not one of them.

            King said:

            King critiqued both parties’ performance on promoting racial equality:

            “Actually, the Negro has been betrayed by both the Republican and the Democratic party. The Democrats have betrayed him by capitulating to the whims and caprices of the Southern Dixiecrats. The Republicans have betrayed him by capitulating to the blatant hypocrisy of reactionary right wing northern Republicans. And this coalition of southern Dixiecrats and right wing reactionary northern Republicans defeats every bill and every move towards liberal legislation in the area of civil rights.”

            Good point. Maybe this would be a better argument:

            All ThinkProgress op-eds are steaming piles of propaganda shiite written by the Democrat lobbyists at the Podesta Group. They aren’t worth the time wasted reading them. This is a ThinkProgress op-ed; therefore it is a pile of shiite and is not worth the time wasted reading it.

            Alveda King too. She’s a staunch conservative as was MLK’s father MLK Sr. The claim that MLK Jr. defied his father’s values is preposterous and Alveda (and MLK Jr. himself) pointed out how very lucrative it would have been for him to do so. No matter what anyone thinks about his affiliation the fact is that the Alabama Democratic party did not allow blacks at the time. The Republicans did. The fact that the Republican party was formed almost solely for the purpose of ending slavery is lost on liberals who have a false narrative to propagate.

            I cannot support ridiculing a liberal for typos, but spreading lies like this, and worse believing them, is certainly contemptible. There may be no evidence that he was a registered Republican, but there is an undeniable fact that he was not and could not have been a registered Democrat.

            no we don’t. Liberals do that to Republicans who are black. Feel free to google how the left treated Condi Rice or Janice Brown during the Bush years. You can also google the response to African-american actress Stacy Dash who gets slammed constantly by blacks for being an uncle tom due to her conservative nature.

            Alan West, Mia Love, Tim Scott, etc. All are blacks who are in the GOP and all receive the same treatment from liberals like you. You ignore this and claim we do it.

            Bottomline, Democrats have done nothing to improve the plight of African Americans since the 1960s. African-Americans overwhelmingly vote for the D and are now basically a permanent underclass as a result.

            It is ironic that the liberals have claimed the term “progressive” to represent themselves. Considering their agenda is nearly identical to what destroyed Rome, there’s nothing “forward thinking” about it. The USA on the other hand, and especially the concept of liberty, is unprecedented in history.

        He would’ve endorsed Kennedy in 1964. So what? Most Democrats, including Kennedy’s own VP Lyndon Johnson, were AGAINST what became the Civil Rights Act of 1964. They changed their tune only after Kennedy was assassinated.

        • BamaG

          MLK Sr only supported Kennedy after he got his son out of jail – so that sounds like a pay off to me..

        • Dee Jackson

          Rev King’s endorsement of Kennedy in 1964 was likely the “price” for getting Dr King released from an Albany, GA jail in 1962.
          Despite the assertion that Dr King “privately voted for Kennedy” in 1960, there is no evidence that it was due to his party affiliation, and was more likely due to Kennedy’s religious image.

        • Verreck

          LBJ was the Democratic Majority Leader in 1957 and busted his butt to get the Civil Rights bill of 1957 passed. That’s something he believed in when he first got to the Senate…

          “For those who would seek to keep any group in our nation in bondage I have no sympathy or tolerance. I believe sincerely, that we have a system of representative government that is strong enough, flexible enough, to permit all groups to work together toward a better life.”

            Uh, no. LBJ fought the 1957 Civil Rights Act tooth and nail. Ditto the 1960 Act. He changed his tune after 1960. His position was never based on civil rights but on opposing Republicans. In 1964, he got the epiphany to support civil rights and hijack the issue from Republicans (Goldwater played right into his hand on this by opposing the 1964 CRA; an irony, since Goldwater’s opposition was not based on racism in any way). In his goal to hijack civil rights, LBJ was completely successful. To this day, a majority of blacks in American think Republicans made the Jim Crow laws and voted overwhelmingly against the 1964 CRA, both utter lies. Sad, sad, sad.

          • Verreck

            Of course Goldwater opposed the CRA for ideological reasons but it sure didn’t stop the Republicans from turning away all the votes from the Southern Conservatives who opposed it because of their racial views.

            In fact, NIxon strategist, Kevin Philips saw how well it worked, he famously began the Southern Strategy. (As he explains here http://faculty.washington.edu/steptoe/afram%20272/Handouts/SouthernStrategy.htm )

            Although Reagan consultant, Lee Atwater goes a bit more in depth in his 42 minute interview with Alexander Lamis for his 1984 book The Two-Party South http://www.thenation.com/article/170841/exclusive-lee-atwaters-infamous-1981-interview-southern-strategy#axzz2d8m2cJ33

          • JPeden

            Former Nixon Strategist, Kevin
            Phillips, Explains the “Southern Strategy”

            New York Times

            May 17, 1970

            “From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don’t need any more than that… but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in he South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That’s where the votes are. Without that prodding fromthe blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats.”

            So LBJ’s strategy worked so well that the incumbent LBJ won 1964 because southern blacks became democrats and “conservative” southern Democrats became Republicans, which is “where the votes are”, according to Phillips? How’d that happen so quickly, especially because it was the Southern Democrats who were also the KKK originators and the “face” of Southern racism. Then LBJ took it in the gut so bad because of Viet Nam, that he refused to run for re-election.

            Then Nixon, running on the promise that he had a “plan” to end the war, won the 1968 election while running against a very weak Hubert Humphry. But it was all because of the “Southern Strategy”?

            Then Nixon wins the 1972 Election, having run against George McGovern who sounded like a sap and had the Eagleton mental disease problem [depression] which seemed to really stop McGovern’s campaign for a few weeks, at least.

            So Nixon wins a massive 49-1 States victory because of the “Southern Strategy”? For some reason I don’t buy the racist component, especially because it is the past Democrats who have always been the biggest racists, and the current Democrats still are, as judged by the evil they have visited on Blacks such as the Dem run Inner City Ghettos and are still visiting upon them as we speak.

            The most recent kinda new evil is Holder’s DOJ suing Louisiana’s education voucher program, which Bobby Gindel claims has been an unmitigated success.

            Of course Obama rescinded the Wash. DC and LA City charter school programs when he first took office, which had also a proven success rate – or at least the DC program.

        • Courtney T L Haynes

          “He would’ve endorsed Kennedy in 1964. So what?” I don’t know if you heard the news, but KENNEDY WAS A DEMOCRAT. If MLK is so DRASTICALLY opposed to democrats of today, why would he even support one back then? Why did he associate the Republican party with racism and the KKK. The truth is, he had no party affiliation. Certainly, the religious portions of the republican party appealed to him. However, the social justice portion of the democratic party appealed to him. You forget that one of the demands at the march was a basic minimum wage. (15 dollars by today’s standard). So, before you try to claim MLK as your own, please get some more information before you mockingly spout out “so what?”

        • Betwixxt

          Actually Bobby Kennedy was more inclined to push for Civil Rights, JFK came by his stand, reluctantly.

            Meanwhile, Republicans have claimed for years that Dr. King was a Republican, despite the fact that it simply isn’t true. After all, King stayed away from party affiliation.

They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party,” he said ============== http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/kingweb/publications/papers/vol4/580211-010-Interview,_Bennett_College.htm

            How about MLK himself? In his autobiography, Dr. King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy: “I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one.” and, “Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964.”

Before you go mouthing off to people and demanding they shut up, do your homework!! I could care less if he was GOP or dem, I care about what he stood for and it is not the gimme generation of today. He also did not believe in abortion, one of dems main platform agendas.

            Better come up with more than a failed print magazine that sold for $1 (the entire business, not per issue), and a failed newspaper that Jeff Bezos bought for pennies on the dollar before you start proclaiming that anybody else “looses” the media battle. You might wake up one day to find that you lost the media war.

          That’s not proof of King’s party affiliation; it’s proof of people’s opinions of King’s party affiliation.

          • BoscoBolt

            Huh? Dr. Alveda C. King is not just “people”, she is MLK’s niece – she has stated many times that MLK Jr. and MLK Sr. were Republicans – do you really think that this is just her “opinion”?

            Don’t be ridiculous.

            Yes, she has “stated” it many times. She has never showed actual proof of it, though.

          • JPeden

            You don’t call an eye witness “proof”?

          • grais

            An eyewitness to what? Did she see his registration records? Did he tell her he was a registered Republican? Has she ever said more than “he was?”

          • JPeden

            She eye-witnessed him, which is the most important thing in evaluating what a person is. Instead of your foolish demand for records from her, of all people!

          • grais

            So, if your niece declares that you are a registered Democrat, because she “eye-witnessed” you, she is to be believed?
            Although I have made no “foolish demand for records” from or of Anyone, records would be the Only proof of King’s party affiliation, or a lack thereof.
            Why is it important to claim, without any real proof, that he was a card-carrying member of Any party? What on earth can it possibly mean in 2013?
            Why not just accept his own words :
            “And I’m not inextricably bound to either party.”

            No one who knows me would suspect that I am a registered Democrat. They personally know me as a “conservative” or Classical Liberal.

            Since MLK is known for his “content of character, not color of skin” dream, he is a not a bigoted Identity Group “Progressive” Liberal Democrat. He is an individualist, regardless of how he registers himself. He is the antithesis of a Democrat.

          • grais

            That still wouldn’t be eyewitness proof, though, it would be hear-say. At least the later would be, the first would still be objective though, since she could have made it up.

          • grais

            Exactly. The whole argument is crazy. People keep saying it’s a “fact,” but they don’t offer any proof. There are even a few people saying it’s easy to look at voter affiliation records, but they don’t say how to do it, nor do they say that they did it themselves. (I don’t believe that info is available to the general public. In fact, I’m quite sure it isn’t, but no one has responded to my questions about how or if they did it) If anyone had ever found actual proof, it’d be all over the net, readily available for folks to back up their assertion. I keep asking…so far: nada. Just lots of down-votes. *eyeroll*

            Some people are such idiots….

          • Mehnow

            While it’s not proof, a person that close to the original source in many instances is more likely to know what they believe aside from politically correct “independent” claims made by the public figure himself/herself to the media…

            They need it at times. They are quite delusional 😉

          • journogal

            Explain in detail how everyone on this board is quite delusional? Is it because we don’t agree with you and hit back with proof to statements? Is it because you come in here with preconceived notions of what you were told (and believe) independents and conservatives think, yet never ask one, just assumed? It seems that way…you refuse to listen and/or accept others’ facts and/or opinions, then have the nerve to call us “tetards,” “delusional,” and other names. Tired of this crap from the left. You don’t want to work with the other side – you HATE us. You hate everything we believe. You hate the fact that we judge people by their character not by their color. Look, just take your blinders off and look how Stacey was treated above by so-called tolerant, understanding, caring liberals. Look how Clarence Thomas is constantly referred to as Uncle Tom by those same so-called tolerant, understand, caring liberals. Or Dr. Ben Carson. or Condi Rice, which did you know her close friend was one of the girls killed in the Birmingham Church bombing? Probably not, because you come off as so vile and small-minded, you probably don’t consider her to be a true black because she doesn’t play the role of the victim.

            And that is what I am tired of – the constant role of victimization. Everyone since the late 60’s and 70’s has the same opportunities as everyone else. I graduate from high school in 1992 and everyone in my school, regardless of their color and/or background had the same chances I did. Did they chose to take them? May be or may be not, but no one stopped them except themselves. It’s time to grow up and realize YOU are the only one in charge of your life. No one else is. No one on this board is, Bush ins’t, Plain isn’t, Koch brothers aren’t, Rush isn’t – no one but you. You win some, you lose some. You go through life with a massive chip on your shoulder, thinking people owe you something, you are going to be very disappointed. Actions have consequences as well. Just sick and tired of it all. Don’t know where you come off calling people you disagree as “delusional” all because they disagree with you. What a small life you must lead. And the thing is, you don’t want to change nor will you. You don’t want to educate yourself about anything, you don’t care what is said to minority conservatives or independents, you more than likely think they deserve it because they don’t think like you.

            You are the “delusional” one.

          • Mehnow

            The funny thing here is the manner in which the left tries (often successfully) to control and morph language.

            Stacey Dash’s comment used the term, purportedly in King’s speech, of “negro” and if you ask a typical regressive today what that means, they argue or suggest it’s like a soft way of saying “n*gg*r” etc.

            But it’s not.

            It was a descriptive term much like Caucasian. It means black. They made it politically incorrect, the word itself did not. Once black was considered more offensive, but according to Wikipedia, which many liberals love to quote, it superseded “colored” which is used in the NAACP itself to this day.

            Of course, there is the UNCF which is not getting hate tweets.

            Political correctness, controlled by liberals, allows these goons to re-write history as they see fit, see for examples Wiki’s page on “Negroid” etc.

            The reason the libs foam at Dash is the term is so dated in their eyes that when used by a non-lib or conservative, it almost equals the N word of more sinister dimensions…

          • Mehnow

            You would have to be delusional to conflate MLK with other current race baiting AA figures and to not notice the difference in tone to his views and speeches by way of contrast. Whether he was a Dem, Rep, or Indie aside makes little difference to this critical matter…

            They need it at times. They are quite delusional 😉

          • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

            Because his political affiliation at the time has everything to do with his message…Um…okay. Then how about these facts. The KKK were Democrats. Fact. The Democrats fought the civil rights movement at the time where as Republicans championed it. Fact. Of course there were exceptions on both sides. Yours and Aruana’s argument has nothing to do with the message here. But from your, her/his comments, and the comments from the right shows we buy into it and you two wish to continue the rift between whites and blacks.

          • Verreck

            No it doesn’t. Unlike many of the brain dead zombies here, MLK didn’t have a political affiliation. He had a political philosophy and that was one of Social Justice.

          • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

            K, so what do you have to offer with regard to that? And the insults could be shelved if in fact you have a valid point and want to be taken seriously.

          • Verreck

            In 1967, Dr. King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference organized a ‘Poor People’s Campaign’, what he labeled the “second phase,” of the civil rights struggle – setting goals such as gathering activists to lobby Congress for an “Economic Bill of Rights.”

            Under the “economic bill of rights” the Poor People’s Campaign asked for the federal government to prioritize helping the poor with an antipoverty package that included housing and a guaranteed annual income for all Americans.

            Almost sounds like redistribution of wealth.

          • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

            Sounds a little like “socialism” to me. Equal rights…or appeasement. Which is what you think we need? How about jobs? Seemed to work up until 2008?

          • Verreck

            Make up your mind. Was MLK a Republican or a Socialist?

          • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

            I didn’t say he was either. Nor do I care. Which is my point. It doesn’t matter. Good points, and ideas, can come from either party. It’s about character. Which is the message. And why we are a republic. Or were at least.

          • Verreck

          • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

            Like…maybe the vulgar comments made to Ms. Dash. Or the fact that MLK’s message was about all of us breaking the racial barriers of the past and moving forward. Perpetuating and embracing that past seems to be a preoccupation for liberals….as opposed to “progressing” and moving on.

        “David Garrow, who wrote a Pulitzer Prize winning biography of King, stated `It’s simply incorrect to call Dr. King a Republican.`”

        Argumentum ad verecundiam is a bad position from which to argue in general, but especially for a person who wishes to speak of “proof.”

        “Garrow claimed there is little doubt King voted for Kennedy in 1960 and Johnson in 1964.”

        Some “proof” – “Claimed?” “Little doubt?”

        • Verreck

          How about MLK himself? In his autobiography, Dr. King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John
          F. Kennedy: “I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one.” and, “Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964.”

I was democrat for years before I realized how lame the party was then I switched just long enough to figure out both parties are the problem with America today and registered Independent. Even then during the time I was registered with either party, I voted for the person, not the party.

            Easy to disprove the claim he was a republican, prove it. That goes for both sides. The fact remains that today’s race-baiters like 0dumbo, Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan and others have little in common with MLK other than their skin color.

          • JPeden

            Since MLK was indeed a real black, not an “identity group” black, etc., he’d sas be a Republican today!

            Laura Ingraham speaks for all conservatives? In that case all liberals / Democrats are racist –

            ““These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a
            problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before,
            the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do
            something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just
            enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ”

            Fair enough!

          • KayGee

            If only Barry Goldwater spoke for all conservatives: “On religious issues there can be little or no compromise. There is no position on which people are so immovable as their religious beliefs. There is no more powerful ally one can claim in a debate than Jesus Christ, or God, or Allah, or whatever one calls this supreme being. But like any powerful weapon, the use of God’s name on one’s behalf should be used sparingly. The religious factions that are growing throughout our land are not using their religious clout with wisdom. They are trying to force government leaders into following their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups on a particular moral issue, they complain, they threaten you with a loss of money or votes or both.I’m frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in “A,” “B,” “C” and “D.” Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me?
            And I am even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of “conservatism.”

            -Barry Goldwater, US Senate Speech, 16 September 1981

            You keep posting this quote…and it has NOTHING to do with his own party affiliation. Off topic.

          • Moonbeam

            I’m not saying he was a Democrat ……. I’m just saying he wasn’t a Republican :)

            How about MLK himself? In his autobiography, Dr. King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy: “I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one.” and, “Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964.”

            http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/

            I haven’t fully decided which candidate I will vote for. In the past I have always voted the Democratic ticket.”

            -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a letter to Miss Viva O. Sloan

            Oct. 1956

            http://books.google.com/books?…

            MLK didn’t have a political affiliation. He had a political philosophy and that was one of Social Justice.

        • JPeden

          You mean like his own words that ~ “people should be judged by the content of their character not the color of their skin [etc.]”

          Nah, MLK was no “Progressively” bigoted, Group Identity acolyte.

        research the voter registration information. It is easy to find out who is registered as R and D. I believe you will be found in error if you think he wasn’t registered as a republican.

        • Moonbeam

          In his words:

          Meanwhile, Republicans have claimed for years that Dr. King was a Republican, despite the fact that it simply isn’t true. After all, King stayed away from party affiliation.

          “I don’t think the Republican party is a party full of the almighty God nor is the Democratic party. They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party,” he said.

            I might remind you (or educate you … who knows?), that Democrats were, at that time, the party of George Wallace and were advocates of segregation, the exact thing MLK was lobbying against. They were also the party of Robert Byrd, a wizard of the KKK.
            It just strains the imagination that King would have been a Democrat. Just as it strains the imagination that he would speak of himself in 3rd person.

        your source is thinkprogress and a radical democrat, who spoke about this after MLK’s death. The fact is that MLK’s legislative initiative was made reality by the GOP, and bitterly opposed by democrats who even today look first at someone’s skin color before hating them. Just look at those tweets from democrats today, posted above, and ask yourself who MLK stood with.

        Martin Luther King, Jr. would not recognize today’s Democratic Party. I’m sure he noticed which party was really on the side of civil rights throughout history; therefore, t’s not a stretch to say he was a centrist who leaned to the right. It should be a matter of public record as to how he was registered. Why the speculation, just find out already.

      • Jerry Camp

        To believe that Sharpton and Jackson are preaching the message of MLK Jr is simply mind-bogglingly ignorant.

      • Justin Hogan

        MLK senior was a registered Republican and MLK Jr.’s niece has said numerous times that Jr was a republican as well. Even though he supported JFK, he did so because he was a very moderate democrat. MLK wasn’t about politics. He was about everyone getting a fair shake and not being judged by the color of their skin. Even if they are white.

        I would support a democrat if that democrat was truly both fiscally and socially responsible. Unfortunately candidates say one thing and do another. Take Obama for instance. He opposed the patriot act and then extended it. He was against president Bush unilaterally deciding to take military actions yet, he does the same thing. He said he would close Guantanamo and it is still open. What i find disturbing is the fact that Obamanites cling to him like he is the second coming of Christ even though he has broken nearly every campaign promise he made.

        Again, what did Kennedy really do for america? Man on the moon ok, Cuban crisis standoff, what else? I’m not criticizing, Kennedy I agree would have done more, but I look at him as the peoples president, not a democrat nor republican because in today’s standard, he would be more republican then today’s democrats.

        So why bash a black women just because she sorta looks white (I guess?). It’s not because of what she’s saying; No, some blacks (a very specific and predictable subset of them) just want — err, sorry — need to be angry at white people — all of them — forever. Period. It excuses all of their insecurities, their lack of education, and their lack of ambition or sense of social responsibility. “If whitey would just let me grow, I would soar to such great heights!!” Got news for ya: that ain’t whitey on your back.

        Dr. Alveda C. King, Dr. King’s neice: “My grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., or “Daddy King”, was a Republican and father of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was a Republican.”

        His son, very involved in left-wing politics, falls short of saying that his father wasn’t a Republican. What he did say is “It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican.” Not really the same thing as saying he was not a Republican. It’s a weasely answer to avoid admitting the truth.

        And why wouldn’t Dr. King have been a Republican? Common sense supports Alveda’s assertion, considering:

        – Lincoln was a Republican, and the Republican Party was formed pretty much as a slavery opposition party.

        – The Emancipation Proclamation? 100% of Republicans voted for it. 23% of Democrats voted for it.

        – 14th Amendment? Every voting Republican voted for it. No Democrats voted for it.

        – The15th Amendment? guaranteeing Blacks the right to vote? Same scenario as the 14th Amendment.

        – In 1872 during congressional investigations, Democrats admitted
        creating the KKK in an effort to stop the spread of the Republican Party and to re-establish Democratic control of the southern states. Blacks, who were solidly Republican at the time, were the primary targets of the KKK’s violence.

        – Southern Democrats (such as Al Gore’s father, Al Sr.) debated against the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

        – Finally, at least a majority of Democrats (64%) voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act (But 80% of Republicans voted for it).

        To suggest that the Republican Party with it’s long history of promoting natural civil rights was responsible for blocking black civil rights because 20% of them voted against the 1964 act, but that the Democrats, with their long history of blatant slavery support and institutionalized racism was NOT responsible for blocking it when 36% of them voted against it in its final winning vote … is willful blindness.

        So you would rather believe a writer, who only wants to defame and lie about MLK, when he isn’t even here to defend himself, than to believe MLK, himself? His “I Have A Dream” speech says it all. He always was a Republican, because he was civil; not hostile. The left has never sincerely wanted peace…nor have they ever really called for it. They’ve always handled everything with lies, greed and violence here in the U.S. Think PROGRESS? It’s more like, THINK REgress. Because everything the so-called “progressives” are doing, has been tried and tried before. Never has it worked. And when it doesn’t, they get all frustrated, hateful and use Saul Alinsky race-baiting tactics. It reminds me of a child who has turned into a bully. And that’s exactly what the left is; thugs, bullies. Pathetic. If Obama would just grow the heck up and stop blaming everyone else but himself for his own actions, perhaps there would be less partisanship going on.

        MLK was a registered Republican according to state Republican records and those close to MLK and the movement, including his successor Ralph Abernathy. You must remember, in the 50’s and 60’s it was the Democrats who greatly opposed civil rights, not Republicans. Read some actual history.

        • Moonbeam

          You are wrong.

          In King’s words:

          “I don’t think the Republican party is a party full of the almighty God nor is the Democratic party. They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party,” he said.

          http://books.google.co.za/book

          How about MLK himself? In his autobiography, Dr. King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy: “I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one.” and, “Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964.”

          http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/

          I haven’t fully decided which candidate I will vote for. In the past I have always voted the Democratic ticket.”

          -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a letter to Miss Viva O. Sloan

          Oct. 1956

          http://books.google.com/books?…

          MLK didn’t have a political affiliation. He had a political philosophy and that was one of Social Justice.

          • disqus_SDRMOKJN1p

            First of all you need to recheck some facts. According to Ralph Abernathy, MLK supported Nixon’s first run for President. Secondly, I NEVER said MLK always supported or voted Republican. I said he was a “registered” Republican and that is a FACT!

          • Moonbeam

            Fact? Okay, can you provide a source?

          • disqus_SDRMOKJN1p

            Google Ralph Abernathy Aruana. He was MLK’s closest confidant and successor. Take it up with him. I NEVER said MLK always supported Republicans, nor did I say would do so today–quite frankly no person can make that claim about today. What I am saying, and it is a historical FACT, that MLK was a registered Republican. And, more Republicans supported the civil rights legislation than Democrats, which is why MLK probably registered as a Republican. In that time, Democrats often wouldn’t let Blacks even register to vote. It is very likely the only way MLK could register is by being a Republican. Abernathy also claims that MLK and he voted for Eisenhower. MLK’s niece (Alveda King) also asserts her Uncle was a Republican.

          • JPeden

            What is that source?

          • Moonbeam

            Here’s another one for you:

            What King said:

            “So today capitalism has out-lived its usefulness. It has brought about a system that takes necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes. So I think Bellamy is right in seeing the gradual decline of capitalism”

            http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/

          • Moonbeam

            Although the claim has been made, most prominently by Dr. Martin Luther King’s own niece, Republican activist Alveda King, that her uncle was a Republican and conservative groups have purchased billboards across the country, apparently trying to claim the mantle of the slain civil right icon for their own, the claim has beendebunked by King’s son, Martin Luther King III. He would probably know. It was alsodebunked by his biographer, David Garrow.

            There’s also the fact that King campaigned tirelessly for Lyndon Johnson in 1964…

            But if you really want to know how King felt about Republicans, why not simply take him at his own word, in this excerpt from his autobiography.

            The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism. All people of goodwill viewed with alarm and concern the frenzied wedding at the Cow Palace of the KKK with the radical right. The “best man” at this ceremony was a senator whose voting record, philosophy, and program were anathema to all the hard-won achievements of the past decade.It was both unfortunate and disastrous that the Republican Party nominated Barry Goldwater as its candidate for President of the United States. In foreign policy Mr. Goldwater advocated a narrow nationalism, a crippling isolationism, and a trigger-happy attitude that could plunge the whole world into the dark abyss of annihilation. On social and economic issues, Mr. Goldwater represented an unrealistic conservatism that was totally out of touch with the realities of the twentieth century. The issue of poverty compelled the attention of all citizens of our country. Senator Goldwater had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated. On the urgent issue of civil rights, Senator Goldwater represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal. While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the racist. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand. In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every Negro and white person of goodwill to vote against Mr. Goldwater and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from Senator Goldwater and his philosophy.

            While I had followed a policy of not endorsing political candidates, I felt that the prospect of Senator Goldwater being President of the United States so threatened the health, morality, and survival of our nation, that I could not in good conscience fail to take a stand against what he represented.

            He also said:

            “So today capitalism has out-lived its usefulness. It has brought about a system that takes necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes. So I think Bellamy is right in seeing the gradual decline of capitalism”

        Actually, I have looked and looked and there is nothing that proves this fact. If you ask his Republican niece Dr. Aveda King she says he was an Independent. MLK Jr’s father was a registered Republican. To keep spreading something that is not true does not help the cause.

      • Joe Kelly

        You don’t know what Dr. King would have done, thought, or how the news, any news, would have reacted to him. Satirist, his dream was about peace, and equality some where we have lost that message. You and others tend to gloss over the fact that Dr. King did not suport violence. Yet Jackson and Sharpton advocate it, by not condemning it.

    • Moonbeam

      Do you have proof of that?

      David Garrow, who wrote a Pulitzer Prize winning biography of King, stated “It’s simply incorrect to call Dr. King a Republican.”

      King, according to Garrow, did hold some Republicans — including Richard Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller — in high regard. He also was harshly critical of Lyndon Johnson’s escalation of the Vietnam War.

      In 2008, King’s son Martin Luther King III said “It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican.” Garrow claimed there is little doubt King voted for Kennedy in 1960 and Johnson in 1964.

      http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2013/08/28/2540251/martin-luther-king-republican/

      You keep on believing that.

      If King were still alive today, he’d be given the same treatment that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are given by Fox News now. He’d be tossed in with the so-called “race hustlers” that Hannity and O’Reilly like to get all incensed about.

      King critiqued both parties’ performance on promoting racial equality:

      “Actually, the Negro has been betrayed by both the Republican and the Democratic party. The Democrats have betrayed him by capitulating to the whims and caprices of the Southern Dixiecrats. The Republicans have betrayed him by capitulating to the blatant hypocrisy of reactionary right wing northern Republicans. And this coalition of southern Dixiecrats and right wing reactionary northern Republicans defeats every bill and every move towards liberal legislation in the area of civil rights.”

      Although King never publicly supported a political party or candidate for president, in a letter to a civil rights supporter in October 1956 he said that he was undecided as to whether he would vote for Adlai Stevenson or Dwight Eisenhower, but that “In the past I always voted the Democratic ticket.”[34] In his autobiography, King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy: “I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one.” King adds that he likely would have made an exception to his non-endorsement policy for a second Kennedy term, saying “Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964.”[35].

      It makes sense that MLK was a Republican, because it was the Republicans who strongly supported black causes throughout U.S. history. Abraham Lincoln was the FIRST Republican President. It was the Republicans who championed the Civil Rights Act in the 1960s over the objections of the southern Democrats. The term “Solid South” refers to how the southern states voted straight Democrat for 100 years after the Civil War in response to the Republican President Lincoln and Republicans who championed Emancipation. It was Democrat LBJ who signed the legislation creating welfare in the 1960s and said “We pass this, we’ll have them n****s voting Democrat for 200 years.” He knew it was a new form of “bondage” to create a dependency on federal benefits.

Now they want to redefine MLK’ss principles around their own twisted bigotry. THESE people…..are the cause of race problems in this country. Just like Jackson saying the Tea Party is the new Confederacy….inferring that the Confederacy instigated and propagated slavery and the Tea Party will do the same. Once again Mr. Jackson, allow me to school you. Slavery had existed for decades – long before the Confederacy was created by 11 southern states in 1861. The Confederacy neither initiated nor instituted nor propagated slavery! Slavery was NOT the reason for the Civil War people….it was a tertiary issue 1.5 years later. Go read the Civil War soldiers diaries online – both sides – and quit listening to the vile BS your keep eating from liberal school curriculum’s and Hollywood. Seek the TRUTH! Pisses me off because my best friends are black and I dated two black girls in college….so I’m really tired of all this southern vilification. You DO know the north had just as many racists don’t you? Oh wait….apparently not.

    • Jedd McHead

      Actually, MLK, Jr., never formally declared being in favor of any Party and, in fact, was openly critical of both Republicans and Democrats. He privately related that he had voted for Democrats, including JFK, Jr., but that’s about as far as his political involvement went.

      His father, however, was a registered Republican (perhaps that’s who you were thinking of) and even endorsed Nixon.

        • Moonbeam

          In King’s words:

          Meanwhile, Republicans have claimed for years that Dr. King was a Republican, despite the fact that it simply isn’t true. After all, King stayed away from party affiliation.

          “I don’t think the Republican party is a party full of the almighty God nor is the Democratic party. They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party,” he said.

            Ok, I’ve been reading this thread for the last hour, and honey/or not honey, this is getting into the spam category (sp?)…

            “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will
            eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such
            time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic
            and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important
            for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth
            is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is
            the greatest enemy of the State.”

            NOT saying it’s a lie, just showing the tactic… no, it’s spam…

    I read a piece in my local papers Opinion and Perspective page that talks about MLK’s dream and how conservative also used the “not judged by the color of their skin but by the contend of their character” quote to argue against racial policies and how the anniversary march a couple of days ago brought up economic issues. The writer says that earlier in his speech, King brings up these economic issues that were addressed. It ends with saying that if King was around today, conservatives would accuse him of “class warfare” and “playing the race card”.

    • therealguyfaux

      Read the speech. It’s available online. The closest King comes to sounding like he’s talking about economic issues is that he calls the Declaration of Independence and Constitution promissory notes, promising life, liberty and property/pursuit of happiness (i.e., equal opportunity), and he says that the US had better have enough on hand to be able to cash that check for all Americans.

  • o0Nighthawk0o

    From what I can tell MLK wasn’t Democrat or Republican. There were aspects of both that he liked and disliked. In fact, most are of the opinion that he had more communist leanings in the strictest sense of the word in that he believed that all things should belong to all people equally. This is supposed to be in FBI files on MLK that are presently sealed as far as I know. And, does it really matter what party he belonged to? Would him being a Republican somehow make his message better? Would being a Democrat somehow make it worse?

    For the record, I am a conservative and I do agree with the message that people will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Who cares if he was Republican or Democrat.

    • DelPasso

      King didn’t side with either party, but stated that he would’ve voted for JFK had he lived. The thing that most people forget was that JFK was a conservative Democrat and was closer in policy to modern Republicans.

      • Jake Wilde

        He was more GOP than anything, but I agree with you both in the sense that it doesn’t accentuate his message either way. It just burns me how much history has been given a different narrative than the reality of it.

      I’m also a conservative. With Bi Racial children. And it does matter because Race in politics are huge. And in order to get the black community to vote demo, the Dems call Reps racist. What better way make people think they are doing right when in fact they are hurting themselves. Its very important that our children know that black leaders or history were republicans and that if it weren’t for republicans we’d still have slaves. Now im not at all sticking up for republican leaders now but our kids just need to know that its ok to be of color and not be a liberal. And actually id classify king as a Conservative as well.

It is now rather by economic dependency on the Progressive Liberal Government Plantation of the 21st century.One must but hope that the black man will awaken to the grave injustice being perpetrated upon him and move away from those that would do so. He deserves much more in a nation founded to provide the right to succeed to all.

    I do believe MLK was a Christian first and foremost and unlike most black leaders of today he didn’t march for money or politics . He would not allow any party to tell him abortion was okay and I’m pretty sure if Christians were being slaughtered around the world he would speak up for them whether they be black , white or yellow .

The “black” culture of today is violent sexually degrading and has the “poor me” attitude. MLK was against all these things. Anybody who speaks proper english and dosent twerk is looked down on by the “black ” culture . Everyday my daughter has to deal with black people calling her out of her name and says she thinks shes better than black people. (she is Bi Racial) .

  • John Mullins

    Dr. King’s message never ceases to amaze, especially when compared to the infantile, twisted interpretation of it by today’s black “leaders.”

    His words were/are transcendent. But sadly, so many still misunderstand his thesis, which is summed up by this:

    “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by THE CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER.”

    Dr. King’s dream has played out into a nightmare.

    It was a Democratic President, in the middle of his term

    It was the Democrats who had 2/3 of Congress as they had for decades!

    It was the Democrats who formed the KKK. .
    It was the Democrats who beat civil rights protesters

    It was the Democrats who fought against school desegregation.

    Letter from MLK to his then girlfriend: http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/index.php/encyclopedia/documentsentry/to_coretta_scott

    This
    explains MLK’s view on a lot of things. His conservatism stretched from
    his being a Christian. Meaning that he was against things like drugs,
    gang violence, wars, etc. However, he was quite socialist in his views
    on economy. It seems to me that he had taken the individual out of the
    equation and replaced it with government. Instead of the church/church
    members taking care of others, it was redistribution that was to take
    care of others.

    I highly doubt that people today would consider him a “race-baiter” or anything of the sort. He appears to be what many would consider a Christian Democrat. A.K.A. Socialist-lite.

    • Courtney T L Haynes

  • GrindingMills

    I’ve said this before on here, and I’ll say it again. What difference does it make (h/t Hilldog), if MLK was a Republican or Democrat, because both parties are extraordinarily different today than they were in the 50s and 60s. Let’s just take a moment to appreciate what he said and did for many people in this country.

        I understand that, but everyone tries to co-opt his message (Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, Liberals, Socialists, ect.) I think we’d all be better served to recognize his accomplishments through the prism of the time in which they were accomplished. Unfortunately Dr. King is long dead and the political landscape has dramatically changed. Who’s to say MLK may have an epiphany and would join the Tea Party in 2009 or serve in Reagan’s cabinet, and alternatively, who’s to say he may have joined the Obama train in 2007? We’re just playing games with ourselves to try to apply his life to the current politics of the US.

        • cnucmecnu

          Dr King join with the tea party? … ummm … nuh! The hitler references, the monkey and ape references, the socialist references, … & the KKK and skinhead support would not endear him to the teavangelicals. After all, many of those same references were used towards him.

I find every race to be my family but with amazing DIFFERENCES. Stacey Dash might not be the same as some of you but she is still equal. You don’t have to be exactly like somebody else to have worth and value.

    During the civil rights era of the 1960s, Dr. King was fighting the Democrats who stood in the school house doors, turned skin-burning fire hoses on blacks and let loose vicious dogs. It was Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who pushed to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and sent troops to Arkansas to desegregate schools. President Eisenhower also appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren to the U.S. Supreme Court, which resulted in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision ending school segregation. Much is made of Democrat President Harry Truman’s issuing an Executive Order in 1948 to desegregate the military. Not mentioned is the fact that it was Eisenhower who actually took action to effectively end segregation in the military.

    Ignorance breeds more ignorance. Before you spout off about someone saying something that offends you….do your research. Oh, wait…that might take time away from hating whites for the simple fact of the color of their skin. Now what does THAT sound like? The EXACT thing MLK worked so hard for. If we don’t all start to learn to love each other again we might as well give up. This world will not survive without love and respect for each other. And evidently a woman of “partial” african american heritage is not entitled to the same privilege as the POTUS.

  • Gary

    You people are too focused on what party he was affiliated with. The ideas were what’s important, and his ideas suggested that men are created equal, regardless of skin tone.

    So what would his philosophy on affirmative action be, if we are all created equal?

    Rather than patronizing blacks into a sense of victimization and loathing of “the man,” I’m pretty sure he’d be the first to offer charity, and to tell people to pick themselves up by their boot straps.

    • Arkuy The Great

      When my son learned about the Civil Rights era in 7th Grade his text pointed out that the entry of large numbers of blacks into the middle class in the post-war years was a huge catalyst for the movement. The CRM was not led by gangstas, pimps, drug-dealers and welfare queens but by ministers, doctors, lawyers and businessmen. Personal responsibilty and a strong work ethic were essential to advancing the civil rights struggle; they were a cause, not an effect. That fact is lost on so many people today; black, white and in-between.

    • liberalssuck

      That was his message, altho the left has perverted it beyond measure. He wanted men to realize they are equal. Funny part, the left is as racist today as it ever has been. As others have said it pays to be a victim.

    • Philnumber3

      Agreed as long as we realize that “charity” is not the same as government dependence.

      • Gary

        Agreed, by definition Charity is voluntary.

  • SophiaWeisheit

    With all the hatred for whitey from the negro community, I just wonder one thing…. If they got their wish, and all the whites were gone, who would take care of them? Where would all the free stuff come from? Food stamps, free lunches, job quotas, education, etc…..Who would the NAACP advance colored people over? just wondering.

    @REALStaceyDash wtf you talking bout didn’t read it but calling blacks negro come on now

    The word “negro” is of Spanish origin and literally means “black”. What is the problem?

  • Arkuy The Great

    It is perversely entertaining to see people getting their bloomers in a bind over “negro”; a commonly used, mainstream word in MLK’s day (even if no longer). How come none of these “defenders of our race” have ever been remotely as critical of the members of their own community who drop the “n-bomb” quite liberally in the course of everyday speech nowadays? And don’t regale me with “taking ownership” or “empowerment” vomitus. The latter word is equally offensive no matter who uses it.

        He was just misinformed. He seemed nice. At least he wasn’t being ugly about it. docaram Stacey Dash is not a white person though I believe she does have some Caucasian in her as it appears. She happens to be a black Republican and it angered the Democrats that she dared to speak about MLK who they feel only they have rights to speak on. Thank you for being kind towards her.

        Arkuy The Great!, (or maybe not) you are the person who really just proved my point in what I was trying to say about people and comments and you may call me whatever you like if that makes you feel better I will not stoop to that level one in part because I know nothing about you to do so.
        ….I really don’t care if the lady is green with one eye in the center of her head….the point was whomever choose to bash her for what she was reading was wrong..but it take people to look at what they choose and make it into something else…America should be reed of ALL of such thinking people. I hope my children are better Americans then those that trash another American (regardless of their color) for a reading or statement they make..with that said (I will beat you to the statement of freedom of speech)

First of, who freed the slave in America? Lincoln, why was the republican party created? To fight and free the slaves. What party was against black civil rights in the 60s? Democrats. Who had a former KKK member in the senate? Democrat (sen. Bird) But you all continue to vote democrat.. The party of users, the democrats have a dark history, however they are your party of choice.. I’m not black nor white and have plenty of black friends who work and hard and never look for excuses. You don’t want to be called nigers, but you say it, you call us crackers and beaners, and its freedom of expression. Look in the mirrior before you comment. Lets vote from our hearts, make sound desicions, lets vote for people who are going to help all of us. Not to receive everything for free, but to work hard and have the opportunities to excel in life. If something is wrong, lets fight for it. You can feed a man a fish for dinner, however if you teach him how to fish, he can feed himself and family for life.

      How about MLK himself? In his autobiography, Dr. King says that in 1960 he privately voted for Democratic candidate John

      F. Kennedy: “I felt that Kennedy would make the best president. I never came out with an endorsement. My father did, but I never made one.” and, “Had President Kennedy lived, I would probably have endorsed him in 1964.”

        It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a
        Republican. In that era, almost all black Americans were Republicans.
        Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today,
        the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks.

    First they were called “Negroes” then that became unacceptable and was replaced by the much better term “colored”. Then that became unacceptable and was replaced by the much better term “black”. Then that became unacceptable and was replaced with the far superior term “African American” to downplay their Americanism and patronize their African heritage. Wonder when that term will be scrapped by the Left in favor of a “much better” term to patronize people by their race only.

    Shut up while listen to The Messiah talk about Himself! Strangely, He’s sounding a bit road worn.He just referred to MLK “june-ya”. Oh oh, now we’re onto MLK’s ‘second phase’ ignoring, naturally, his own failures to provide jobs but naturally praising “health and welfare” programs. Let’s see if he mentions the Democrat-run Black Inner City Ghettos.

    But meanwhile he’s continuing to campaign against Himself, yet not mentioning the sad condition involving current black unemployment. Oops, now he’s right onto Class Warfare while at the same time railing against the “politics of division”. Now we are hearing about how Progress was stalled and “hope was evaded. But thankfully we can reset to 1963, and “have the courage to change” once again.

    We must reignite Empathy, etc, that still exists within. “That’s where Courage comes from” [I hope He wins the Presidency next time!] We can feed the “hung ra”. Now he makes His appeal to the Yutes who will surely want to help HIm win next time. Now he’s sucking up to the NEA. etc. …..They’re all “marchin” [mmm.mmm.mmm]

    Now it’s “change” again that needs “march in”. The Mountains will be made plane and the crooked places straight!!!!! The End at last, Thank God Almighty, The End at last…..

  • Michael

    Yeah…
    If you’re a black person, and calling someone a racist, for quoting MLK, you’re pretty much the epitome of the problem…

    If your idea of the “Civil Rights Movement” is more in line with Al Sharpton, than Martin Luther King, you are basically a wet dream of the Ku Klux Klan – a black person who fits every negative stereotype…

    Anyone who doesn’t realize this, Martin Luther King was an intelligent, altruistic person. Al Sharpton is a low class, moronic racist. Al Sharpton had NOTHING, ZERO do to with the Civil Rights movement. Al Sharpton CLAIMS he was a “Civil Rights Leader,” but he WAS NOT. The ONLY reason why people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are in the news today, is MLK is unfortunately dead. These two carpetbaggers swooped in after MLK and claimed glory they did not achieve, and hijacked a dream of equality and freedom, and turned it into a disgrace, and a sham. To them it is a racist dream, and a career in hate and divisiveness. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are not fit to shine MLK’s shoes.

    Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson would have MLK go by the way side of people like Clarence Thomas and Alan West to name a few if he was alive today.

    I really admired and supported MLK when I was young and watched the strife he had to go through getting civil rights passed.
    **********
    If not for the support from so many in the white community and Republican party I don’t know that we would have a 1/2 black president in the WH today. The Democrat party of the old south and some to the north protested the most to stifle this progression.

    **********
    Since that time the south has done a 180 and has become the face of the new Republican party in support of civil rights. Yes those so called rednecks by the left have become the folks that say live and let live by smaller government yet the left proclaims they are intolerant. Not only that but obviously our education system and American history being taught there leaves a lot to be desired in these foolish minds.

  • Cathy Garland

    Here’s more on the discussion regarding whether or not MLK was a republican: http://www.humanevents.com/2006/08/16/why-martin-luther-king-was-republican and http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/08/martin_luther_king_was_republican.html, which also mentions that the organizers of the original march were mostly black republicans. Unless we open up voting records, I doubt we will know for a fact. What we do know is that Southern Democrats were racists and members of KKK, that a Republican president (Lincoln) emancipated them, Republican congressmen worked hard to bring about equality and were vehemently opposed by Democrats, that Democrats put in the Jim Crow laws (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws), etc. If MLK wasn’t one party or another, he certainly is show walking in step with them, arm in arm, at the march.

    Next time you encounter a liberal, ask them why it’s totally racist to refer to someone as “colored” but it’s very enlightened and progressive to refer to them as “people of color”. Again, “colored” horrific, but “person of color” perfectly OK, even though they mean the exact same thing, (as long as the color isn’t “white” you see).

    Sad and pathetic. And Martin was all about being Conservative and Christian and kind and understanding and making sure that everyone was equal. Actually, only ignorance says those qualities belong with a particular party! Still, and in fact, Martin WAS a Republican, and NONE of the qualities he admired fit the Dimwit/Libtards in any shape, form or fashion, then or now. Pitiful…especially when members of the Negro race don’t even know what Martin stood for. And, without a moments hesitation…Martin would’ve been running from every thing that Barry O-shyt has done and is doing…he would’ve been ashamed that Obama calls himself a black man…and he would’ve already been preaching on the many wars Obama has us involved in because he was a Christian and knew his bible.

Dr. King’s message has been lost on a great majority of the people in this country, most obviously the POTUS who has made it a point to equate economic divide with racial divide, which is patently false and one of the biggest race baiting moves of any leader of color in recent or any history.

    No doubt MLK was a republican. Since it was republicans that voted to free the slaves

    http://russp.us/racism.htm

    And don’t forget the historical Republican voting on the bills to free slaves, voting rights for women and equal pay. While the democrates voted almost unanamously against those bills.

    NO doubt MLK would be a republican how could he have been a democrate and vote against freeing the slaves with all other democrats ? It would make no sense at all but hey liberals don’t make any sense at all.

    But anyhow MLK the republican would have voted with republicans to free the slaves no question about that and no doubt he was with them in their quest for civil rights. Republicans let the fight for civil rights but people are just ignorant now. Check the votes on the bills back then it tells you all you need to know. You’ll see you’ve been dubbed all these years big time.

  • Rose Mary Booth

    They just don’t like when a black woman can stand up for herself. Stacey Dash is black and looks like she can have white in her but neverless nobody has a right to say she lost the right to quote MLK. Please don’t speak about MLK when you have never met the man and two you only read about him from books. that’s if you read at all. He would always take the opportunity to talk to someone even Stacy Dash if he were alive today. He was a peaceful man. Please quite finding excuses to be ignorant. There are racist blacks too. I am sick and tired of all the excuses of the reason you give for swearing and cussing and for the violence in your neighborhood.

    Sadly, if MLK showed up today, he would be branded an “Uncle Tom”. He was a man trying to join all people, not divide them. He was the opposite of the “New Black Panthers”, Al Sharpton, Jessee Jackson, and the many so called black leaders in the U.S. House and Senate. I won’t even mention the many millionaire Hollywood people spewing hatred, they no not of what they speak. Otherwise they would be doing great things, like creating businesses with their wealth to give people an opertunity and sense of self worth. People are so focused on the slavery of the past, that they can not see the slavery of their future, but by their own ignorance.

    What King said:

    “So today capitalism has out-lived its usefulness. It has brought about a system that takes necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes. So I think Bellamy is right in seeing the gradual decline of capitalism”

    • Arkuy The Great

      “And yet I am not so opposed to capitalism that I have failed to see its relative merits.”

      See, I can take a sentence out of context as well. No matter, really. I am not surprised to see a 23 year old activist taken with left-leaning politics. Many of us have done so ourselves, only to be jerked back rightward when we got jobs and started raising families. It is reasonable to think King was no different in this regard (he was a 34-year-old professional with a wife and children when the March on Washington took place).

      Oh, and there’s this:

      “Bellamy emphasized that the change would be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. This, it seems to me, is the most sane and ethical way for social change to take place.”

      IOW, King was non-violent and played within the system from his start to the very end. He always believed the American system would do the right thing eventually. That is quite a conservative value, no matter how you slice it.

    Aboard Air Force One – Three witnesses

    The plan is to never lose another election because a minimum
    of 14% of the population will be voting democrat because they are dependent on
    them.

    “These N*****s, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and
    that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before,
    the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something
    about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet
    them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then
    their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them,
    we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all
    sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

    “I’ll have those n*****s voting Democratic for the next 200
    years.” = LBJ, Democratic President of the United States.

    Thus enter LBJ and
    “”we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet
    them down, not enough to make a difference.””

    It worked.

    But democrats needed the people to convinced blacks they were victims and incapable. They are best described by educator Booker T. Washington.

    “”“”There is another class of coloured people
    who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of
    the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs…I am afraid that there is a certain class of race‑problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public. “”“‑‑ Booker T.
