I’ll get straight to the point today. Most of humanity is gifted a sense of empathy and a soul, and then there are those who should be fed broken glass thrice daily with gasoline chasers to wash it down. I like to call those people “liberals”.
It is powerful, go read the entire post. And I love the final line, advising us how to address these types of bottom feeders who spend half their time bemoaning “Right Wing vitriol” and the other half engaging in Left Wing vitriol
-I was not a supporter of making Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday a national holiday. I am still not. If his career had ended the day after his I Have A Dream Speech [August 1963], I probably would have had no problem with having him being the one black honored with a holiday, but Rev. King went on to embrace Socialism and that disqualifies him from being so honored with an American Holiday. Socialism is the exact opposite of everything America stands for and to esteem any person holding such views is a betrayal of The Founding.
Much better to have paid homage to Frederick Douglass, another brave man like Rev. King, but who embraced solidly American values and never wavered in his belief in the goodness of The United States Of America. My favorite quote of his:
A man’s rights rest in three boxes. The ballot box, jury box and the cartridge box.
That statement could have come from The Duke or one of The Founding Fathers or from any Patriot.
…The American people have always been anxious to know what they shall do with us… I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are worm-eaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! … And if the negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone! … your interference is doing him positive injury.
No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man without at last finding the other end fastened about his own neck.
Read it all, very interesting and very thought provoking. Bob understands that for writing this that he will be called, well, you know
Yes, Bob, you will be thus labeled by the political correctors, but, wear it as a badge of honor sir! I too will be labeled for celebrating Confederate Heroes Day here in Texas on January 19th, which is Robert E Lee’s birthday. Stonewall Jackson was born Jan. 24th
I had dozens of ancestors who fought the Yankees, and I cherish their sacrifices and their memories. Those who say that these men fought to defend slavery are wrong. They deserve their holiday, and our remembrances! Anyone who wants to criticize me, or call me names for honoring my heritage can kiss my ass frankly.
Here are two videos from Gods and Generals, a fantastic, and historically sound movie about The Army of Norther Virginia, and about Stonewall Jackson, played by Stephen Lange
(Politico) — Attorney General Eric Holder used Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy on the anniversary of the civil rights leader’s birthday Monday to emphasize the Obama administration’s dedication to protecting the American people from discriminatory voting practices.
“Despite our nation’s record of progress, and long tradition of extending voting rights – today, a growing number of citizens are worried about the same disparities, divisions, and problems that Dr. King fought throughout his life to address and overcome,” Holder said at an MLK Day event in Columbia, S.C.
Holder’s remarks in the Palmetto State come just weeks after the Justice Department blocked the state’s new voter ID law from taking effect, citing an unfair burden on minority voters.
Citing the “drumbeat of concern” he has encountered from Americans across the country about discrimination in the election systems, the attorney general vowed that the Justice Department was more committed than ever before to enforcing the Voting Rights Act.
The GOP holding a debate on MLK Day! Only on Al “Pimp My Hair” Sharpton’s show could such an inanity be uttered! The Pit of Eternal Race Pimping gets deeper and deeper.
Seriously, I could not contain my laughter watching this. Are these three idiots REALLY this stupid? This demented? Of course not!They are, however, this desperate! This is all they have. They cannot talk about economics, or any other issue of any substance. All they can do is race bait, and throw the term Jim Crow around, and OF COURSE, accuse the GOP of trying to stop Black folks from voting! Pathetic! Absolutely pathetic!
Seriously, if you are still a Democrat, let me ask you this. WHY? Why do you still support this type of assbackwardsness?
