Happy MLK Day!
I get a paid day off in memory of Martin Luther King Jr! God Bless his soul. Most people don’t understand that MLK was conservative in values. Very different from the views taught by the liberals of today. The memories and history of this great man, in recent history, been hi-jacked by modern liberals to promote the agenda. It is unfortunate, but because of this, he has become a national icon in the history of modern American liberalism.
I look up to MLK as the great leader he was. His most famous speech he said, “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”. In saying this, he envisioned a place where all people were to be treated as equals. Not a country where some are more equal than others… as in modernAmericatoday. He envisioned a place where the American dream was a reality for everyone and everyone could have the opportunity to pull themselves up out of poverty to be a success. Not be made a modern day slave by being totally dependant on a government handout for food, clothing, and subsidized housing for the rest of your life.
There were many things that is now overlooked historically. He was indeed a Christian and his faith was very important to him. He was actually a Baptist minister, and became an advocate for fairness and justice for all. These things are forgotten… or distorted. Things that are just not mentioned… like the fact that Mr. King was best know for using nonviolent methods of protest and he followed the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. Unlike like Senator Obama’s liberal use of the Teamsters and the Black Panthers to strong arm his enemies to get his way. Our current President claims to be for fairness and justice, “just like MLK”. But the (hypercritic) Barack Obama is very different. I think if Martin Luther King Jr. were to witness the things that are going on today, in his name, he would be turning over in his grave.
