DEMOCRATS WHO CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY of MARTIN LUTHER KING ARE HYPOCRITES

With all this white privilege garbage being bantered around by the left and something new added to the definition of racism almost on an hourly basis, I was thinking about the words of Dr. Martin Luther King in his “I Have a Dream” speech.

While we’re five months away from celebrating Dr. King’s birthday, I can’t help but be saddened at how far away we have deviated from his dream.

In reviewing the text of his speech, I was searching for the following: “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.” “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

In searching for the above, I also came across this: “We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust 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 up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn our back.”

All my life, I have interpreted these words of Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement in its entirety to have as a goal a near color-blind society, where skin color is likened to hair color or eye color, used predominantly for identification purposes. Having said the above we can’t ignore the facts that the disease, sickle cell anemia strikes only blacks and melanoma/skin cancer strikes mostly whites.

Approximately 44 years after modern day civil rights legislation was passed, the United States of America elected its first black president, Barack Obama. I didn’t like Barack Obama, and I still don’t. He’s a Democrat and I don’t identify with Democrat party politics. I oppose the major expansion of government entitlement programs, including the government takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy (the health care industry). I oppose punishing and demonizing the wealthiest Americans just because they are rich, and don’t adhere to the Democrat theory that anybody who has money obtained it off the backs of those less fortunate. I believe that it is necessary to have a strong military to protect American citizens from the invasion of foreign regimes intent on destroying this country. I believe that it is necessary that Americans have the right to bear firearms in order to protect themselves from those who intend to harm. I could, of course, write more, but I’ll end it here.

But the fact that I, along with millions of others, didn’t like Barack Obama, doesn’t change the fact that in 2008, we elected a black president. This event should have signaled to the nation and the rest of the world that we’ve achieved a society in which skin color, with few exceptions, holds little more importance than hair color or eye color.

With blacks making up only 13% of the United States population, Barack Obama had to have some white votes to get elected.

After the 2008 election, and to some extent after the 2012 election, Obama supporters/Democrats demonstrated their hatred for those who didn’t march in lockstep with their policies regarding how this country should be governed. The typical Democrat rant went as follows: “You lost, get over it. We’re in charge now, we’re going to do what we’re going to do. We don’t care what you think.”

Instead of being proud that the nation’s first black president was a Democrat, and looking forward to the probability that their dreams of a socialist utopia would be closer to becoming a reality, Democrats/liberals/progressives displayed their fangs and claws in numerous attempts to “beat down” those on the other side of the political spectrum.

To be labeled a racist during this time was the worst thing that could happen to a person, something from which he or she would never survive. Thus, everyone took extreme measures to avoid having this label slapped on them.

Unlike former Democrat presidential candidate, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, during his campaign made it clear that the United States would no longer be a red country or a blue country. Instead it would be a purple country. He was going to be a president to all Americans. And that’s how it should be.

There was one little thing wrong with this. He didn’t mean it. From early on in his presidency, Obama flaunted his racism and disdain for those who weren’t in lockstep with what he wanted to accomplish as president. While most presidents, including previous president, George W. Bush, recognized that in America, we have the right to disagree with our leaders and the right to express those disagreements, Barack Obama vehemently resented all those who were against his governing philosophies.

The hate of Barack Obama toward his political opponents, gave license to the left wingers of this nation to continue the hate toward those who failed to toe their political line. Thus, anyone who didn’t go along with Obama and the Democrats was a racist. I witnessed the plight of many of my conservative friends attempting to explain to liberals that their differences with former President Barack Obama had nothing to do with his skin color, but where he stood on the issues facing this country. To these explanations, the left was deaf, dumb, and blind, continuing to hammer home that anyone who didn’t like or agree with Obama had to be a racist. Seeing that explaining to liberals about why I didn’t care for Obama was an exercise in futility, I simply referred them to this website and challenged them to find anywhere in any of my writings where I belittled Barack Obama because of the color of his skin. Of course, there are not any.

Even after visiting my blog and admitting there’s nothing in my writings where I’ve besmirched BHO with regard to his skin color, liberals will still accuse you of being a racist. They’ll say you’ve used certain “buzz” or “code” words that connect to racism. When a liberal does attempt to do this, I let him or her know that our conversation is now over. I don’t deal with “buzz words.” End of conversation.

Since the election of Donald Trump to the presidency and his subsequent inauguration, the left has been on a tear regarding not only racism, but sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia. And I understand that misogyny is the new term for sexism. White people are to acknowledge they are privileged because they are white and can’t possibly comment or have any opinions where race is concerned because they haven’t experienced the “black experience” or “the people of color” experience. It sounds like we’re on a collision course to punish white people, particularly white men and render whites powerless. Liberals seem to think that’s okay.

Tell a liberal that you don’t see things in terms of race and seek to judge people by the content of their character as opposed to the color of their skin and see what all things will get said to you. Here’s an example: “Nancy Graham do you feel better now telling us all you don’t see color? You’re a liar and that should make you feel kinda awful. Because you are awful.”

In recent months, we have witnessed a wave of accepted segregation from the left. According to the Washington Examiner, http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/black-lives-matter-group-bans-all-other-races-from-their-open-meeting/article/2619392, The Black Lives Matter organization based in Philadelphia created a public event on Facebook for a gathering they were hosting which they marketed as an “open meeting.” As many know, the supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement are very diverse. However, for the Philly chapter of BLM, their meetings and events are strictly “black spaces” according to their FB event announcement. When pressed via Twitter, the official account of BLM Philly explained that anyone is free to support the movement from a distance, however, their meetings are only for black people. They even cited Malcom X, the human’s rights activist who advocated for segregation.

And remember, Evergreen College, that liberal bastion in Washington state? The students sponsored a “Day of Absence & Day of Presence demonstration for which white students, faculty, and staff were asked to leave campus for one day. Biology professor, Bret Weinstein was berated by dozens of students outside his classroom on the day of the event for refusing to participate in the event.

It seems that liberals are poised to steer the American culture toward a culture that supports segregation and judging people by the color of their skin. It’s perfectly okay to call someone a racist, or for that matter, a misogynist, a xenophobe, homophobe, etc. with no concrete proof. We’re liberals, we’re superior, we make up definitions to suit our needs of the moment, and if we say you’re something, then you are. The end.

Dr. King said in “I Have a Dream,” “We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence.” Well, so much for that. According to liberals, it is okay to riot, destroy property, injure, or even assassinate or murder when something happens that we don’t like.

“The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust 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 up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.” Again, so much for Dr. King’s dream. We’re now told that all white people, especially white males are evil. Even those who stand with us in our efforts to destroy property, injure, maim, and even kill, are not to be allowed in our inner circles. They must realize their evilness and submit to whatever punishments we wish to inflict upon them.

“We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.” This instruction from Dr. Martin Luther King is obviously out the window with the left advocating separation of the races and the banning of whites from anything and everything involving “people of color.”

And yet, in five months when Martin Luther King’s birthday rolls around, we’ll be treated to a sickening display of liberal leaders, including Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Corey Booker, Keith Ellison, etc. singing the praises of Dr. King. I have a couple of close friends who are black and liberal. They will certainly attend the many local celebrations held in the Birmingham area.

The folks I mentioned above, including my friends are hypocrites, yes hypocrites. If you support what’s currently taking place in this nation with respect to race, you’re a hypocrite. You’re no better than George Wallace in his early years as governor of Alabama. You’re no better than Birmingham Police Commissioner, Bull Conner, of firehose and police dog fame. In fact, you exist on the same plane as the Ku Klux Klan. How can you even celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday when you’re an advocate of today’s racial politics?

Wait! I know! You’re liberals, you have no scruples, no sense of fairness, no sense of wrong and right. It’s whatever suits your needs of the moment and gives you a euphoric complex of superiority. And anyone who dares to disagree with you…well, we know about that.

THE LIBERAL MINDSET

When George H. W. Bush ran for re-election against Arkansas Governor, Bill Clinton, in 1992, the fact that Bill Clinton was a draft dodger and Bush, the elder was a fighter pilot during World War II made no difference to the liberals. How could they applaud Bill Clinton and on the on the other side of the coin, condemn George W. Bush. What was the liberal mindset all about?

For his military obligation, George W. Bush served in both the Texas and Alabama Air National Guards. He never went to Viet Nam, even though the war was currently raging. Was he able to get lighter duty because he was a member of the revered Bush Family. During the time Bush, the younger, was serving in the Air National Guard, his father, George H. W. Bush was serving as the U.S. Representative from Texas’s seventh Congressional district, and later (1971 to 1973), as United States Ambassador to the United Nations.

Did the future President of the United States get preferential treatment? I don’t know, but I would say that it was a good possibility. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, the war was growing unpopular by the day and anyone who could possibly get out of serving did, using all contacts that they had at their disposal. It was what it was.

When George W. Bush decided to run for president and his less than ideal military service was made known, I said to myself, “Well the liberals won’t be able to upbraid Bush on his military service because their “boy,” Bill Clinton was an “out and out” draft dodger.

Little did I know that the left, with liberal journalist Dan Rather, would make documents from Bush’s military service available during his 2004 run for re-election. The documents were determined to be fakes, but the left continued to badger Bush for his military service. Once again, I just couldn’t grasp the liberal mindset.

After George W. Bush was elected president in 2000, I began to become aware of the disingenuousness of liberals. Seventeen years later, we’re seeing the same old disingenuousness, only more of it. They will accuse you of one thing, then do the same thing later and think nothing of it. When confronted, they change the subject in hopes of throwing you off track. When they’ve lost and they know it, they start hurling accusations at you such as racist, sexist, homophobe, etc.

When I’m discussing something whether it be face to face or online, I’m a stickler about staying on subject. Not saying that I’ve never veered off subject, I certainly have. But for the most part I make every effort to keep things on track.

As I indicated above, liberals often change the subject to throw you off. I sometimes wonder, though, if they’re consciously trying to throw you off track or if they are incapable of understanding what they read. Are they lacking in reading comprehension skills? Because they have the academics in their corner, they think they’re smarter than you and me. But are they? I say no.

AttackOnDisabledYouth

Earlier today, I shared the above meme. A you can see, it’s simply pointing out that the alleged attacks and torture of a white disabled youth by four blacks yelling “blank” Trump and “blank” white people, would have a different reaction by the “tolerant” left, including the Obama administration, and the mainstream media if this had been four whites attacking and torturing a black disabled youth while yelling “blank” Obama and “blank” white people. Cities across the country would be on fire, Obama would have had multiple press conferences, the victim and his family would be invited to the White House, and people would be screaming racism and hate crime.

While conservatives are calling this a hate crime and have indicated that the four perpetrators are racists, the outrage by the right pales in comparison with respect to the outrage that would have taken place by the left had the tables been turned. By now, there would be rioting in the streets, destroying property and injuring people. Black leaders including Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would have immediately weighed in and called for protests. The mainstream media would be reporting on this continuously.

Following my sharing of this meme, a friend, who claims to be a moderate, but I think he’s really a liberal pointed out that the perpetrators were immediately arrested and charged, and justice would be rendered. He also pointed out that President Obama had condemned the acts and seemed to insinuate that the right is always expressing a desire for a completed investigation before conclusions are made. While there was clear-cut evidence of the crime committed after the perpetrators had video-taped it and put it on social media, that was not the point of this meme and the person who commented on it possessed the same liberal mindset that you see day after day, sometimes hour after hour, didn’t seem to recognize that.

Because Donald Trump will be our next president, the liberals are planning all sorts of strategies to derail his presidency. Prominent Democrats, including Michael Moore and Robert Reich, are instructing the sheeple on how to react toward Trump supporters and the legislation that President-elect Trump and the Republican Congress. See my article: Challenges to Conservatism.

I’ve never seen such actions in my life as those coming from the left in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election. We have “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” college students, also known as snowflakes, requesting safe spaces where they can go and grieve over the election, liberal celebrities promoting the boycotting of the inauguration, Americans being attacked in various ways because they supported Donald Trump, ad infinitum.

Can liberals not see through themselves? I shudder to think what would have been said and done to conservatives if they had acted in a similar manner. Supposed we had openly threated to thwart every piece of legislation Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress tried to pass? Suppose we had called Barack Obama something comparable to the names that Trump supporters have been called by the left? First and foremost, we would have been called racists and accused of hating Obama because of his skin color. Plus, we would have been accused of other hateful things, and been the subject of much hate and vitriol emanating from the left.

Well, doesn’t the left do all of that now? Of course, and I don’t expect them to stop, and neither should you. I haven’t been able to figure out the liberal mindset and neither has anyone else. Will anyone?
