Just a poignant reality on the eve of MLK's 'I have a dream
speech, and how his dream has been hijacked and mangled by today's civil rights radical revenge-seekers:

http://townhall.com/columnists/kenblackwell/2...

[...Put bluntly, this leadership rather easily tolerates black kids killing other black kids. But it cannot abide a white person (and Mr. Zimmerman, with his Hispanic background, was pushed into a white identity by the media over his objections) getting away with killing a black person without undermining the leadership's very reason for being.

As if to underscore Dr. Steele’s points, we have the appalling understatement of Jesse Jackson in response to the random killing of a young Australian jogger in Oklahoma. Jackson tweeted: Such actions are “frowned upon.”

Frowned upon? It’s as if the killers forgot to send a thank-you note after a dinner party...]

There is absolutely nothing civil in the discussions these days. I remember MLK and he was very civil in his discussions, totally unlike those today who say they are "for civil rights."

Agreed. The people who marched alongside MLK did so in order to achieve true equality and a chance to survive or fail on their own in America, to be allowed to contribute to society.

Today's "civil rights" activists are marching for favoritism and revenge.

Like many things that start out good, the civil rights movement has been twisted and warped.

But by all means, let's not discuss anything intelligent - let's talk about Miley Cyrus and her kiddie porn routine, because that's so vital.

Shameful how the poverty pimps are acting...... They should be looking at keeping fathers in the household and making them responsible...... Stop them from screwing fat chicks.....

The local fringe lunatics decide to chime in with everything that is wrong with the civil rights movement.......

Yet not one member of their political party even bothered to show up or take the chance to speak during this year's MLK event.

Perhaps they should take a hint from their elected leaders. The Party of Lincoln decided to ignore the 47%, and it's clear that one race makes up a part of the group!

More interestingly, Sen. Tim Scott, a republican and the only black member of the senate, wasn't invited.

Seems the left is still absolutely petrified of a black conservative being allowed a voice, even at an event celebrating one of the greatest back civil rights leaders in this country's history. No, the left is happier keeping black conservatives in the back of the bus, proving once again the party of racism is decidedly liberal.

Given that not so subtle slight, I can't blame Tim Scott's fellow republicans for declining an event so clearly politically-jaded. "Thanks, but no thanks", the RIGHT has said, "We'll leave this day to our marginally-documented president and his race-baiting social revenge-seekers still stuck on stupid."

Much like O'Ranting O'Reilly you've got another one wrong....

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/t...

A source connected to the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington said Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the only sitting black senator, was not invited to speak at the event because his office had declined an invitation to attend the commemoration as a spectator, Roll Call reported.

An email exchange obtained by Roll Call showed that an invitation to the 50th anniversary commemoration appeared to be sent to all members of Congress, as the form letter identified the recipient as "Representative" rather than by name.

The exchange showed that a staff assistant to Scott, Rachel Shelbourne, sent a reply to the invitation that read in part, "Unfortunately, the Senator will be in South Carolina during this time, so he will be unable to attend the event. Please do, however, keep him in mind for future events you may be hosting," as quoted by Roll Call.

Apparently you are too blinded by your bigotry to notice that not one Republican was INVITED to speak at the all Democrat event??? Way to keep the ostrich syndrome going strong there Bob.

And again, the only point you get is on your head. NO Republican or conservative was invited to SPEAK at the event. It was all Democrats/progressives because they were afraid a black conservative would make them look stupid. Which they would have.

The left would have been fine parading Boehner, your stereotypical white conservative talking suit, around. Boehner, part of the most despised group of senators along with Reid and Pelosi, would offer the liberal media more ammunition to ridicule. They invited George Bush. Yea, Another real perfect poster child for who the liberals would like representing conservatives.

The left wasn't for two seconds going to invite any black conservative leader. Absent from invite were Condoleeza Rice, JC Watts, Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Mia Love, Allen West, Dr. Benjamin Carter, etc. etc. etc .... ALL perfect examples of the levels of success black people can attain in today's America, in part thanks to MLK.

But no, those black people weren't invited to speak, and it's no mystery why. The liberals continue to prove themselves the party of racism, and continue to prove the old adage that liberalism always results in the exact opposite of it's stated intent.

Racism lives in America alright - and it resides in the hearts and actions of democrats.

Well, you got one thread removed with your junior high level of the english language, shooting for another today? Who are you really? Bob or Steve? Both have about the same grasp of the english language as you exhibit. Unfortunately, you missed the point as well,other than the one your head that you keep bumping on the monitor. You are not worth the time it takes to explain things. Perhaps Mommy can explain it to you, that is if she cares enough to bother.

No one, and I mean NO ONE can open themselves up to as much well deserved ridicule than our favorite home school dropout. To quote a fool who doesn't know the difference between the House and the Senate......

"Boehner, part of the most despised group of senators along with Reid and Pelosi, would offer the liberal media more ammunition to ridicule."

This is what happens when the retarded right tries to think for themselves!

And yet even I have more college transcript documentation than your marginally-documented hero, the college-goer who can't seem to prove it, the community organizer who's currently in it up to his big ears in both foreign and domestic catastrophe.

The only retards around here, Bob, are those of you who can't see you've elected a completely inept fake that is doing his best t play president but hasn't a clue how to actually be one.

Well, considering Bob the boob and pippy-in-need-of-neutering both made the exact same post with pippy adding on his usual sewerpipe language at the beginning, I'd say you have your answer to that one.
