Juan Williams is a Democrat. He's one of the smart Democrats and a Fox contributor. He has no place among the die-hard radical liberals.
Dr. Ben Carson would have been an excellent representative of MLK's dream. He just wouldn't have fit the left's agenda.
Herman Cain is also an excellent representative of MLK's dream. But he's too successful.
The list of black republicans who would have been excellent speakers at this rally would be too long. But they weren't invited. Not even one.
sweety the democrat negro hates blacks that are not cleared by their masters they say black americans have no right to choose and if you are not democrat you are hated funny the same rules doesnt apply to white democrats they are free

Boehner, Cantor Turned Down Chance to Speak at March Anniversary

“They asked a long list of Republicans to come,” Bond continued,“and to a man and woman they said ‘no.’ And that they would turn their backs on this event was telling of them, and the fact that they seem to want to get black votes, they’re not gonna get ‘em this way.”

According to Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel, the Ohio Republican “was invited, but spoke at the Congressional ceremony instead, as did Sens. Reid and McConnell, and Rep. Pelosi.”

....Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was also asked to attend in lieu of his brother, President George W. Bush, who reportedly had to turn down the invitation as he recovered from surgery due to an arterial blockage — not, as Bond suggested, he had to stay to attend to his also-ailing father.

“This was truly a bipartisan outreach effort,” said a spokesperson for the event in an email statement to CQ Roll Call.“All members of congress were invited to attend and the Republican leadership was invited to speak. Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office was very helpful in trying to find someone to speak at the event. Making this commemoration bi-partisan was especially important to members of the King family, too.”

Progressive liberal STUPID? Did you even bother to read where this happened? In Raleigh NC! That's definitely not a progressive liberal place and it had nothing to do with anything PC nitwit. It was another example of so called conservatives and their war against the homeless. The same thing happened in Miami where the city is run by a Republican mayor.
When did you ever have a mind to lose?
Try the liberal mayor in New York City.

NY Post - The Bloomberg administration is now taking the term “food police” to new depths.

In conjunction with a mayoral task force and the Health Department, the Department of Homeless Services recently started enforcing new nutritional rules for food served at city shelters. Since DHS can’t assess the nutritional content of donated food, shelters have to turn away good Samaritans.

In Raleigh, North Carolina, the safety planning committee met to resolve how to feed the homeless effectively but the state took action to ensure those in need didn't go hungry.

Conservatives are right!

You will never see this in the Liberal Media:

One of the two students removed from Oberlin College earlier this year for allegedly circulating virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus is an ardent leftist and committed supporter of President Barack Obama, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

Dylan Bleier, one of the two students, organized a voter registration drive on behalf of Obama before the 2008 election. That voter drive is still listed on the website for Organizing for Action, the non-profit group whose mission is to advance Obama’s agenda.

The Oberlin Police Department identified Bleier and his partner in the spree, Matt Alden, as two of the principal architects of a month-long spate of racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages at the small, private campus.

Really Carol? Didn't you just post a quote by Booker T Washington who in his Atlanta compromise say that blacks should settle foe minimal education and menial jobs so that he could appeal to his wealthy benefactors?
You're beneath contempt.
Booker T. Washington, Republican, strongly supported blacks learning a skill as these were the kinds of jobs available to them 100 years ago.

Learning a skill is a good solution for both young blacks and whites these days too.

Practical solutions always elude liberal democrats.

Spinning and Fabrications, Remember Curveball: Dangerous, Familiar Twaddle Precedes US Military Assault on Syria,Dangerous, yet very familiar “Iraq-esque” twaddle has dominated the headlines ahead of a clearly premeditated military attack against Syria:
“The Obama administration believes that U.S. intelligence has established…”

“…could intervene to stop Syria using such weapons, following a suspected attack last week which is being investigated by the United Nations…”

“…planning to release evidence, possibly as soon as Thursday…”

“The U.S. could hit Syria with three days of missile strikes, perhaps beginning Thursday…“

Missing, of course, is one essential element – actual evidence backing any of the claims being made to justify yet another episode of unprovoked military intervention launched by the US, UK, France, and their collection of regional partners.

The West has admitted it will not wait for the UN to finish its inspection of the alleged attack sites and insists instead that it will present its own evidence – presumably from the same CIA and MI6 that fabricated evidence regarding Iraqi weapons of mass destruction they knew did not exist. Whatever the UN does find will almost surely be spun just as it was during the lead up to Iraq.

Such spinning and fabrications eventually led to headlines like “Man whose WMD lies led to 100,000 deaths confesses all.” It can be imagined that after the West accomplishes its goals in Syria, the Western media will likewise divest from the lies they are currently selling to the public, and reveal with a shrug that indeed, Washington, London, Paris, Tel Aviv, and Riyadh never had any evidence to begin with.

While the general public appears to be more than aware that they are being led into yet another unprovoked, costly military adventure, based on “evidence” they neither trust nor believe even exists, they may not realize just how premeditated and deliberate this latest proposed international crime is.

General Wesley Clark in a 2007 speech in California discussed a 1991 conversation between himself and then Under Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz. Wolfowitz indicated that America had 5-10 years to clean up old Soviet “client regimes,” namely Syria, Libya, Iran, and Iraq, before the next super power rose up to challenge Western hegemony. Also in 2007, it was revealed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his New Yorker piece titled,“The Redirection,” that the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia were conspiring to arm and fund Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda-linked terrorists to create a regional sectarian bloodbath designed to subsequently overthrow the governments of Syria and Iran in a proxy war.

Clearly then, years before the so-called “Arab Spring,” regime change and the necessary military intervention needed to facilitate it in Syria was a foregone conclusion. All that was left to do was to create the sectarian bloodbath, fan the flames of the predictable humanitarian disaster that would follow, and then sell a “humanitarian intervention” to the public to justify the otherwise unacceptable cost in human life and treasure necessary to achieve their purely self-serving geopolitical goals in the region.

A similar model was used against Libya, where an armed conflict between Western-backed extremists and the Libyan government was purposefully spun as a “humanitarian crisis” demanding Western intervention. Many of the collaborators inside Libya would later admit, that like Iraq, the evidence used to justify Western intervention was entirely and purposefully fabricated.

Since 2011, the West has feigned indecision over whether to support the “rebels” or not. In reality, it has been sending untold of millions in cash and literally thousands of tons of weaponry into the country along side thousands of foreign fighters

It was the West, on record, that engineered the staggering civilian death toll it is now attempting to use as a pretext for further bloodshed. With public support at an unprecedented low, a mere 9%, the West has clearly exhausted its legitimacy and has entered into uncharted, desperate and very dangerous waters, bringing with them their war-weary populations, their decimated and crumbling economies, and their various shareholders, who if were wise, would begin searching for either the brakes or the exits.
