The hateful bigot has been canceled for his controversial comments that people should be treated with respect no matter their skin color.

"I have a dream that my four little 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," said the dangerous, alt-right extremist, according to sources. "I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls."

"I mean, this is literally Nazism," said one progressive Twitter user. "He might as well have grown out a little mustache and invaded Russia. We are scouring his old Facebook photos for swastikas and racial slurs as we speak. I'm sure there's a ton of hateful stuff there."


Not funny.

    Is treating everybody "equally" the same as treating everybody fairly?

    I know you are talking about race, but is it "extreme" to provide special considerations for people with handicaps? Why should they be provided with special ramps instead of staircases as God intended us to use? Should there be senior discounts at stores and restaurants?

    Joe Biden spoke about this today. He said that one way many Americans get ahead is through generational wealth. The most common way is through land and home ownership which often gets passed down to the kids. That's less true for Black families who've had their property devalued because of red-lining. If you live in a predominantly Black neighborhood, you will pay more for auto insurance than an equally careful driver in a white neighborhood. Colleges with large white enrollment get more money in endowments from rich alumni than HBCU's.

    People's situations are not the same. We are not all "created equal" in any real sense. Jefferson wasn't thinking about his slaves when he wrote that. People start off life with advantages or disadvantages over which they had no control or responsibility for.

    A big part of Dr. King's solution to inequality was democratic socialism.

    From your editorial: "King advocates policies in line with a democratic socialist program..."

    In the article, I didn't see a quote in which King advocates for Democratic Socialism. Socialism, for sure. But, Democratic Socialism?

    Two thoughts. First, I used to be fairly close with a guy who liked to say, "Jesus was a Democrat." How ignorant! Talk about promoting America as a Christian nation!!!!!!

    As far as I can tell, King was, among other things, a fairly down the middle, liberal Protestant theologically...for the mid 20th century.

    Second, there are two things liberal Protestants grooved on back in the day: First, the Old Testament prophets' calls for Justice.

    (He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
    To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God. -Micah 6:8)

    And, the description of how early Christians lived in community immediately after the ascension in Acts 2-6. "All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. (2:44-45)

    King was hugely into the Old Testament prophets. See link. He also saw literally following the teachings of Jesus as essential.

    I'm pretty certain that, being a loyal Baptist preacher, when Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated socialism, it was biblical socialism, not Democratic Socialism.

    Biblical socialism? LOL!

    Over the years, I've listened to numerous speeches by Dr. King. The socio-economic policies he advocated for drip with democratic socialism. He was the Bernie Sanders of the American Civil Rights Movement.

    From the InTheseTimes piece:

    Speaking at a staff retreat of the SCLC in 1966, King said that ​“something is wrong … with capitalism” and ​“there must be a better distribution of wealth” in the country. ​“Maybe,” he suggested, ​“America must move toward a democratic socialism.”

    In Where Do We Go From Here, which calls for ​“the full emancipation and equality of Negroes and the poor,” King advocates policies in line with a democratic socialist program: a guaranteed annual income, constitutional amendments to secure social and economic equality, and greatly expanded public housing. He endorses the Freedom Budget put forward by socialist activist A. Philip Randolph, which included such policies as a jobs guarantee, a living wage and universal healthcare. He also outlines how economic inequality can circumscribe civil rights. While the wealthy enjoy easy access to lawyers and the courts, ​“the poor, however, are helpless,” he writes...

    For King, the only solution to America’s crisis of poverty was the redistribution of wealth. In a 1961 speech to the Negro American Labor Council, King declared, ​“Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.

    To quote po, "You got nuthin." Irritating, ain't? Bahahahahahahahahahaha.

    What you have is people who want King to have advocated specifically for Democratic Socialism. Nothing more. "King advocates policies in line with a democratic socialist program: a guaranteed annual income, constitutional amendments to secure social and economic equality, and greatly expanded public housing. He endorses the Freedom Budget put forward by socialist activist A. Philip Randolph, which included such policies as a jobs guarantee, a living wage and universal healthcare." And, "King declared, ​“Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children."

    And, Donna. "Biblical socialism? LOL!" Oy. You just allowed your Christophobia out into the light.

    The brilliance of this BEE article is in proving how impossible it is for you secular progressives to allow King to be precisely who he was to his core. A 20th century liberal Christian. A BAPTIST!

    You insist on remaking him as one of you.

    The few years of difference in our ages makes a difference here. I was old enough and interested enough to be politically aware at the time. I actually watched highlights of King's Memphis "I've been to the mountaintop" speech, given the day before his death, on the Huntley Brinkley Report. I recall his reference to his own death.

    I watched coverage of his assassination the next day...and, of all that followed.

    I also remember King being questioned about running for political office near the end of his life. Politics was not thing. He courageously laid his life on the line to create radical change. He lived the life of a prophet and believed in the way of the Old Testament prophets. It was beyond his interest to even consider a political paradigm or program.

    He was not advocating Democratic Socialism. He liked democracy and he clearly preferred socialism to capitalism. But, that's as far as he went.

    He was a Baptist preacher. Let the man be who he was.

    Well you can conclude what you want. I don't think it can be more clear that Dr. King advocated for everything on the democratic socialist agenda.

    NBC reporter Sander Van Oker interviewed Dr. King after his "I have a dream" speech and eleven months before he was assassinated (link below). I thought it might interest you and everyone else here.

    Towards the end of the interview, Dr. King reflected on that speech, saying that he was more hopeful then and that in some ways that dream has turned into a nightmare.

    Well you can conclude what you want. I don't think it can be more clear that Dr. King advocated for everything on the democratic socialist agenda.

    If you'd a said "virtually everything," I'd be agreeing with you. I'm sure neither of us know King's thinking comprehensibly enough to support your statement.

    Having said that, I still disagree with your: A big part of Dr. King's solution to inequality was democratic socialism.

    Socialism? I'm on board there. I can't see justification for your claim, even with your hand-picked quotes.


  8. by Donna on January 17, 2023 9:07 am

    Okay, virtually.

    Kind of the same thing I've been saying for years... I guess following MLK jr is a pretty radical/ extremist view in the US now.
