Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Ideals Squashed By Obama Administration
Today the President is going to give us some glitz and glitter buy regurgitating some of what the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had to say fifty years ago. Of course what King was pushing for was the principles of intent from the Constitution not what this Administration demonstrates on a daily basis.
Our chief Orator will tell us that though we as a country have moved closer to what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated vision, we still have a long way to go, and how his Administration is working hard in making that vision a reality. Inequality and discrimination are still the problems of the day.
Even if discrimination were eliminated, the president said there would still be families who are poverty-stricken, neighborhoods that are run down, and schools that are underfunded. “It’s in all of our interests to make sure that we are putting in place smart policies to give those communities a lift and to create ladders so that young people in those communities can succeed.”
It’s the same old lines of “inequality.” After the adulation, we will be treated to the chief orators favorite subject, that of the struggle between the aristocracy and the proletariat. Of course anyone who graduated the sixth grade before 1970 knows that the struggle is actually between oligarchy and right of self-determination.
Dr. King knew this to be true, and speaking truth to power he also knew that the slow road to equality would be achieved after people understood the meaning behind the content of character. This is something today’s group of race baiting bigots care little about.
Has anyone ever seen, heard of or read where Dr. King wanted anything for people other than opportunity? Of course not, it seems his entire mission on earth was to awaken the sensibilities of the American people in order to jump-start the engine of equality.
Unlike the majority of bigoted civil rights leaders of today, Dr. King was grounded in two principles. One of which was Christianity and the other the Constitution. And as a bridge a simple construct as outlined in the Declaration of Independence, in that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Dr. King was one of those rarities that show up from time to time, in the course of human events, to nudge us along. And to demonstrate what character looks like when filled with the content of the Holy Spirit. My Grandfather told me once that “King was no saint, but I will tell you this, if anyone knows what one looks like it’s that man.”by
