it seems you have a skewed view of what the 'right' thinks about a LOT of things.<quoted text>
I disagree. Martin Luther King does belong among our country's Patriots.
I don't care how much the far-right have tried to discredit him or his message. He's far more a true Patriot than any of the nitwits posting here who claim such status.
MLK, to MY 'conservative' mind, stood for EQUALITY... not 'fairness' or 're-distribution'. his message was for MINORITY economic growth and equality through a level 'playing field'. NOT special considerations.
seems he believed and PREACHED 'YES, WE can!' if given the opportunity. NOT handouts, quotas, food stamps and a pass on immoral and self-destructive behaviour (like 70% ILligitimate births and 40% PLUS HS drop-out rates!).
are their SOME very radical rightwingers (KKK, White Supremicists, etc...) that positively LOATHED every thing MLK & Co stood for? hell, yes!
BUT... the self-appointed 'civil rights' leaders that took up his cause after him TOTALLY CHANGED THE DYNAMICS AND DIRECTION of the 'equality' message. and, the progress of normalizing race relations was first stopped and then reversed itself.
don't bother to call me nuts (or worse). you have bought the Progressive message, that much is obvious.
but KNOW this: despite the divisiveness of post-MLK 'civil rights' demands and policies, MILLIONS of MINORITY FOLKS have quietly adopted good, old-fashioned, Middle Class American Values and PROSPERED and TURNRED INTO PRESENT DAY CONSERVATIVES.
those are the ones the 'righteous' minority leaders blast with racial names like Uncle Tom and sell-out whenever they speak out FOR those conservative Values. Values like Marriage, Education, Charity, Limited Government, Law & Order, Self-Control and Self-Determination.
you CANNOT sit there and type and tell me that those residing and participating in these modern Progressive American Gulags we call the Projects, Low-Income Housing, barrios, slums and inner cities and, even, low-rent trailer parks PRACTICE those Values.
IF they DID, their numbers would be DECREASING instead of being on the RISE.
now, thanks to even MORE moronic FG fiddling with trade and mortgages and college loans and, ESPECIALLY, Public Ed, the Middle Class is being depleted. first, LAID-OFF and then put on perpetual UN-employment payments (just ANOTHER govt check, isn't it?).
if you DO receive a check yourself, you know the 'trap' first hand.
that 'funny' feeling you get every time you go shopping, from those still struggling to MAKE a living in an economy in decline, is called a CONSCIENCOUS.
DESPITE decades of telling tens of millions of folks just like you, that being on the 'dole' is NOT shameful, every thing American (movies, TV, books, relatives, even the FALSE pride the recipients projects while using their EBT CARDS- remember when they were nasty, self-identifying paper 'stamps'?) tell you and them otherwise.
remember, Frankie crooned about doing things 'My Why', NOT the government's way... the Highway to Tyranny.
