Alveda King, Niece of Martin Luther King Jr, Speaks at Beck’s “Restoring Honor” Rally on Anniversary of ‘I Have a Dream’ Speech
“I have a dream too” … So said the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. at the “Restoring Honor” rally.
As the liberal MSM and Al Sharpton condemn Glenn Beck for daring to have his “Restoring Honor” rally of the anniversary of MKK Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, I wonder how they will respond to this “Restoring Honor” speaker? Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., spoke today at the “Restoring Honor” rally honoring her uncle on the 47th anniversary of his “I have a Dream”.
This is a must see video … “I too have a dream too, its in my genes.”
“Faith, hope and love are not dead in America …. We still Trust in God!”
This must have driven the liberals and the Al Sharpton brigade to have Alveda King speak at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally. As American Power stated, the libs heads must have exploded to have such an event occur. It’s kind of hard for ReverendAl and the bias and hateful MSM to claim that the Beck rally to dismiss it with MLK Jr’s niece attending. The following is from ABC News:
On the 47th anniversary of her uncle’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, politician and activist Alveda King has joined conservative commentator Glenn Beck at the same spot to bring people together in paying tribute to America’s soldiers and “restoring honor” to America.
King, the niece of civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. and daughter of his brother activist A. D. King, is currently the director of African-American outreach at the pro-life group Priests for Life and has recently stepped into the spotlight after several appearances on Beck’s radio program.
“I am attending this rally to help reclaim America,” she told “Good Morning America’s” Ron Claiborne today from Capitol Hill. “I’m joining Glenn to talk about faith, hope, charity, honor. Those are things that America needs to reclaim. Our children need to remember to love each other how to honor each other, their parents, God and their neighbors. I agree with Glenn on all of those principles. So that’s why I’m here. For me it’s principles over politics.”

The race merchants of the left must be seething.
Al Sharpton is so jealous. Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally was the real deal.
ummm… yeah..like…Al Sharpton – I have not always agreed with him, but respected him…..until today. He showed a side that I wish I had not seen. I will pray for him.
Ms. King, may I say that you have totally impressed me. God bless you and your family.
…no surprise to me as truly religious people of all races and creeds would embrace a more conservative point of view and love of people and country.
Hold the light of truth on some thing, somebody or yourself and it will cleanse evil from it. The darkness is over powered by the light.
How great has the light of God shown. Thank you Lord Jesus. Restore America back to your ways. Amen
I cried when she walked on stage, I, big tough daddy who will punch anybody who wrongs my children cried like a child when she spoke. I was 3 when her dad and uncle were slain. I still remember the anquish I felt as the world turned upside down with all the killing and riots. I was born into the fire watching my city burn all around my grandmothers house and now it feels like the cool water of truth is bathing me.
Praise God, this is the best speech I have heard in years, praise to those who stand for the right of Freedom for All, even those who believe in God, it is about time!
Some folks arent old enough to remember Al Sharpton and the Tawana Brawley fiasco he created. He’s a real rabel rouser – likes to cause trouble between blacks and whites. Just what we don’t need in this country. Sept 11th united everyone – at least for a while. Beck’s rally was a huge success but we’ll never hear that from MSM.
AL UNCLE REMUS SHARPTON IS A FAT LARD ASS DO NOTHNING WELFARE RCCEPIENT HIDING BEHIND THE REVEREND TITLE . I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THAT HE’S BEEN ORDAINED.
Hey there Super Dave…can the devil “ordain” for his own purposes? If so…question as to whether Sharpton is ordained or not MAY be answered
Maybe Sharpton is an example of what the Bible refers to when it speaks of the UNholy standing in the place of the holy? Hmmm….
Hmnnn… about the other stories coming from Sharpton’s event are absolutely precious. Check out the Washington Post’s coverage. It makes the point far better that if you were looking for a rally of racists in DC yesterday, Beck’s was the wrong place to be. Sharpton OWNS racism:
“Shame on them. We still have a dream. We are here to let those folks on the Mall know that they don’t represent the dream,” said Jaime Contreras, president of SEIU-32BJ. “They sure as hell don’t represent me. They represent hate-mongering and angry white people. The happy white people are here today. We will not let them stand in the way of the change we voted for!”
On the racial divisions evident in the rallies today: “We can either remain complacent under the guise of a post-racial society,” said Cynthia Butler-McIntyre, national president of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority. “We came today to say that is a lie and the truth is not in it.”
Speaking as an “angry white person,” I for one couldn’t be happier. In fact, if you hang out with the Tea Partiers you’ll find them an overwhelmingly optimistic, smart and funny group of folks. It’s the Obots (Olbermann, Matthews, Schultz, etc) who never seem to be having any fun.
I’m still idealistic enough to be surprised that a member of the Obama cabinet would attend an event hosted by the openly racist/anti-Semitic Rev. Al. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan addressed the (ahem) “crowd,” and of course he brought up race, too.
After all the grousing about “how dare Glenn Beck speak on the anniversary of Dr. King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech,” everything you need to know about the Left is that they still refuse to judge us by the content of our character, and insist instead upon obsessing over the color of our skin.
P.S. I’m with poster “St. Stephen” as far as Beck not really being my favorite personality. But, I could look aside from that for one day simply because his MESSAGE was RIGHT ON POINT.
RESTORE AMERICA! Defend her honor, and God Bless the USA. Keep praying, 2012 will be here in less than 500 days, and the Dems will once again lose majority control of the house sooner than that.
aaargh…please rescue my post from the dreaded spam monster? thanks & good night
I think this lady is 100% right in her dream and her wish for peace and equality over politics.I respect her for standing up for her principles. Too bad she is already being used for political gain and one up-man-ship by all political parties with a stake in this raly. Reading all of your comments Ithink you all missed her point.
SM: Sorry, I tend to think that she is a big girl and knows exactly what she is doing and knows in her heart it is the right thing and MLK Jr would have wanted her to.
Guess what, her dream just might be the dream of many others.
Sharpton is a vulture..he only cares about himself. I really do care about civil liberties….not civil entitlelments.
#11: same goes for obama’s citizenship. is he really an American citizen ? i seriously doubt it. about as much as al sharpton is a minister.
What a beautiful person and a beautiful speech. Keep talking because many of us are listening.
I just watched Alveda King on Larry King Live and Sharpton was bantering while she so eloquantly spoke with him. At one point she did make an attempt to say something (correct him) while he spoke and he told her, “Let me finish.” She did. So when it was her turn take a wild guess what happened? Yup…he rudely talked over her. What a hipocrit.
She is a beautiful woman and fine example of what a Christian should be. I admire her greatly. Thank God we still have such in the public eye as an example to the people of not only this nation, but the world.
Was clear Sharpton was WAY out of his league in her presence.
Maybe we should refer to old Al as Sharptongue? He sure isn’t sharp minded….
i’m surprised fat albert didn’t call her a racist.
don’t you think its wrong to have ppl like Beck and Palin speak at such a monument?
its kind of insulting to MLK.
MLK wanted ppl to come together and tried to spread understanding between the different groups.
Palin and Beck are not trying to do that.
Hello again Dork.
I suppose it’s alot less insulting than you posting in here.
#22- DOLF- you are an idiot and you missed the point COMPLETELY. If you know, understand and are familiar with the things that MLK stood for- you would not even have made that comment. Again, sorry but you are an IDIOT.
#19- Brenda in VA— I agree with you 100%. Ms. King is a lovely woman, eloquent, educated and every single thing that does indeed define a true Christian. She has absolutely no qualms with being very clear about continuing to carry the message of her late Father, she speaks her mind and captivates many-including her opponents and many African-American Anti-Reversed RACE BAITERs do not agree with her! The very people who are supposedly speaking out and making a stand for what they represent as far as closing the racial divide—are SOME of the ones who do not agree with her.
RIDICULOUS, and talk about not being “politically correct”. Ms. King cares not what the ignorant and some of her adverse audience will say or think about her. She, like her Father- speak the truth.
so what does MLK stand for?
the stuff Palin and Beck have been venting????
So Dork, finally admitting you do not even know? Wow! How about you go do some research. I mean, like read ONE of his speeches and be sure to keep a dictionary handy in case he uses any words more than 6 or 7 characters long.
Brenda, take a reading class.
I was asking if MLK also stood for the crap Beck and Palin have been venting…
I know the speeches from MLK (here he is also very very highly respected, together with Mandela and Tutu)
#27-Dolf—DO NOT COMPARE MLK to either Beck or Palin.
We’ll keep it simple for you, Dolf.
One common theme and comparison between MLK’s civil right’s Marches and many of his speeches were that Americans need to close the racial divide by forgetting about skin color and reaching out to OTHERS of ALL WALKS OF LIFE. Brotherhood, christianity, forgiveness, having pride in your country and doing things together for the collective good of all mankind. Being proud to walk side by side, and having contributed to the same common goal. Which is, making America a stronger, better Country in which to live, work, eat and pray and raise our families together–alongside one another. Volunteering for your community and those less fortunate than yourself, lending a hand to your fellow Countrymen, women or children even if they are not the same ethnic background as yourself. He spoke of restoring the FAITH IN GOD, COUNTRY, and your fellow Man.
The only place Mr. King ever failed was that he was known over the course of many years, to have had several illicit affairs on his dutiful Wife, Coretta Scott King. This still did not make Dr. King a bad human being in any way, shape of form.
Mr. King had a preminition, that he was going to be killed while out spreading his message, and he knew it. He accepted it as part of his sacrifice for others. It was a great time of civil unrest in the Country, RFK and JFK had both been assasinated. Mr. King would not cower in a corner or hide in fear. He was determined to make a mark in American History as a Leader, and one of his main concerns was demonstrating and marching PEACEFULLY. He was a strong opponent against violence of any kind.
Got off topic a little, but you can clearly see that Mr. King’s beliefs and sentiments were echoed in Beck’s Speech. While they are 2 completely different human beings, with completely different personalities, lifestyles and professional careers—their message had many common themes. This is exactly why Dr. King’s Daughter chose to stand beside Mr. Beck and was a strong advocate for his rally. While no one can certainly speak for Ms. King other than herself, I’m not certain she agrees with everything on Sarah Palin’s platform.
What do you make of the recently disclosed story about the highly-regarded civil rights photographer, who was with Dr. King on the day that he was shot, and who was an informant providing information to the FBI regarding Dr. King and other civil rights activists?
Get a book and read it Martin Luther King, Jr. He has stood for a lot. He believed in freedom and of race. The Human Race. We are all Children of God. I have seen some of the rally and it really had the right values and it wasn’t dishonoring Martin Luther King, Jr. I guess people are so close minded that they couldn’t get the message.
