happy birthday, martin luther king

I probably should write something "racially charged" today, just to delight Oliver Willis and a lot of others who consider me to be a virulent racist. But I really don't have the energy. Besides, I LIKE being called a racist--- especially by the people who hurl that insult at me. As long as I am not as hateful as they are, I'm doing fine.

I do have one question to ask. Martin Luther King has been dead for almost 40 years now. He preached equality and civil rights. He demanded to be treated as a human being--- nothing more than anyone else deserves--- and nothing extra, either. He died for his beliefs. If he were alive today preaching the same message, I believe that the professional race-baiters of society would accuse him of "acting white."

Do you believe that race relations today are what he "dreamed" of seeing?


Not even close! The Jacksons, Sharpton, et al of today use King's name to divide and segregate this country based on nothing but the color of a person's skin. I think MLK is spinning is his grave over what's being done and said in his name.

Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it . . .

Now, let us set aside the fact that MLK was an avowed communist who advanced the idea of redistribution of wealtth . . .

Let's set aside the fact that MLK taught Jesse Jackson how to shake down whites with scurrilous charges of racism . . .

Let's set aside the fact that MLK was a known adulterer (just like Jesse, gee, big surprise!) . . .

Let's set aside the fact that he and Ralph Abernathy were know to have "a thing" for one another . . . Matters not to me, but . . .

Let's set aside the fact that his family members have been divided--some who think James Earl Ray took him out that night in Memphis while he was fucking white chicks, and family members who do not believe James Earl Ray took him out.

So, essentially, who was he?

A black preacher who borke his ordination vows countless times . . .

Broke his marriage vows countless times . . .

Taught Jesse how to behave . . .

I do not believe any man should be shot and killed for his behavior, whatever that may be, unless he threatens the life of another. I am hardly a racist to any degree. But if MLK is the beacon of hope for modern day blacks . . . then the perpetual whining about discrimination can be understood.

I mean . . . just imagine a white preacher doing what MLK did. A white preacher would be ridiculed beyond belief, and rightly so.

As the old saying goes: "The proof of the pudding is in the eating."

And when you spend enough time with blacks who will tell you MLK was nothing but a whore-mongerer and an opportunist . . .

Then you understand Jesse Jackson.

It is all in what you believe . . . or know. And to what degree it has gotten so stupid, can be measured in the responses to this.

All anybody knows about King anymore is that he had a dream. The "civil" "rights" Left never really likes getting into what he said that dream was, so they never bother quoting the rest of the sentence.

Typical Left revisionism.
