Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2018 … One Day We “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”
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY – 2018 … Because in the end, it is all about the content of one’s character.
On this MLK Day 2018, we once again join together as a nation and honor the message of Martin Luther King Jr. We look back and reflect on “The Dream.” Don’t let people tell you we have not, because we have come a long way as a people and a nation since the 1960′s. However, that is not to say we don’t still have a ways to go. I personally make it a point every MLK day to listen to the words of the slain Civil Rights leader and his “I Have a Dream” speech and reflect on what it means and where we are today with that dream. Today, we are a much better country and closer to Martin Luther King Jr’s dream. The United States of America has come a long way; however, the mission is not over. Recently we have been presented with the facts that black unemployment is at an all-time low. It can get even lower! “The Dream” is much like being a Christian or life in general. You don’t just all of a sudden say, okay, I have reached my goal and nothing more is needed. People are not perfect, they never will be. We strive to be good and follow Christian values. That does not mean we do not fail or fall short. Have we come a long way, yes. However, does that mean we have much more to do and always will. Don’t let negate noise get in the way of reality. Be a part of the continued Dream!
“I Have A Dream Speech” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
I have a dream that “The Dream” of Martin Luther King Jr. will be championed by real Civil Rights activists and not high-jacked by those for their own self-serving purposes and agenda and try to divide us as a country. To do so, to race-bait and to divide America whether you be a common American citizen, a pastor, a politician or a president does a disservice to Martin Luther King, Jr. and his “DREAM.” How I wish there was a true Martin Luther King Jr. alive today to champion the cause. We are closer than you think America, don’t let those that would divide us be victorious.
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four 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 today.
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
FLASHBACK: That Time Obama Called Libya A ‘S**t Show’ …
The MSM, LEFT and Democrats go ballistic when President Donald Trump reportedly said why are immigrants coming from “sh#t hole” countries. Something that Trump has since denied. However, where was the LEFT and the media when their hero Barack Obama made similar comments?
From The Daily Caller … According to the Atlantic:
“So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion — which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.
Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an ISIS haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.
Tucker Carlson asks, “Why can’t you say that?”
Fox News and President Donald Trump are not being racist when they say or ask these questions, they are being honest. I guarantee the Libs and the LEFT make the same comments, they just say it where no one can hear them. Could better words been used than sh*t hole, probably. But that is what most Americans would have said if you asked them. Sadly, these countries are not hell holes, third world countries, etc, because of the people who live there, they are because of their dictatorial leaders. Those in charge have exploited their countries resources and people. Seriously folks, have you taken a good look at Haiti lately? As Carlson said, “President Trump said something that almost every American agrees with. An awful lot of immigrants come to this country from other places that aren’t very nice. Those places are dangerous, their dirty, their corrupt and they are poor. That is the main reason why those immigrants are trying to come here. And you would too.”
Very true. This is not racist. It is a socioeconomic issue.
Seriously folks, where would you rather live, Haiti or Norway? Haiti or the United States? The choice also should be asked for where would you rather vacation, study, retire or go on a honeymoon. If anyone said Haiti, you are being dishonest. I wonder how many people from Haiti who are refugees think Haiti is a hell hole?
A list of the UN’s Least Developed Countries. Hmm, is the UN now racist?
The Ingraham Angle 1/13/18: Its So Easy for the MSM and the LEFT to Call Trump a Racist instead of Dealing with the Facts
LAURA SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT …
Laura Ingraham discusses Trump’s recent remarks of “sh*t holes” and asks, what is the difference between that and a third world country of hell hole? Some how Democrat Dick Durbin thinks “chain migration” now thinks that is racist. So you think Trump is a racist? Are you kidding me? This term has been used for years by both Democrats and Republicans, and now its suddenly an issue for the LEFT. These people really do need mental help. Take a good look what President Donald Trump has done for black America. And you call that racist, eh?
African – Americans Under President Donald Trump as compared to the first black president, Barack Obama. This is the LEFT’s worst nightmare, Trump is good for blacks and maybe this may actually show up at the ballot box.
So this man is a racist, huh? With results like this, one would think that the KKK would revoke his card. But that’s right, Trump doesn’t have one. Who did, why Democrat Senate Majority Leader, Robert C. Byrd.
Robert C. Byrd was a recruiter for the Klan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter. After leaving the group, Byrd spoke in favor of the Klan during his early political career. Though he claimed to have left the organization in 1943, Byrd wrote a letter in 1946 to the group’s Imperial Wizard stating “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia.”
Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Calls Immigration Negotiations … ‘Five white guys’ leading DACA talks should open a ‘hamburger stand’ (VIDEO)
DEMOCRATS JUST CANT HELP BUT USE THE RACE CARD EVEN WHEN OFFENDING THEIR OWN …
Yesterday, Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi complained that immigration negotiations are being led by “five white guys.” Guess who was one of the 5 white guys she made this disparaging comment about? Why her own No. 2, Democrat Minority Whip Steny Hoyer. AMAZING. Does Pelosi even know that some of those white guys are her own leadership? Steny Hoyer, called the Californian Democrat’s comments ‘offensive.’ Gee, you think? The media and Democrats think Trump is unfit for office? They might want to take Pelosi in for observation. You could call these folks who came up with a lame immigration deal useless, but I doubt whether their color has anything to do with it.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi complained Thursday that immigration negotiations are being led by “five white guys” — and was quickly rebuked by her No. 2, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, himself one of those white guys involved in the talks.
“The five white guys I call them, you know,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. “Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?” Pelosi said, complaining that minority members of Congress were not involved in deciding the fate of Dreamers.
Pelosi’s quip was a reference to the hamburger chain Five Guys and the five white men leading the immigration negotiations. In addition to Hoyer, they include Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
The group of House and Senate leaders held a meeting on immigration earlier this week.
