The Trump administration honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during a wreath laying ceremony at the civil rights leader’s memorial in Washington.

On Monday, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke joined the King family for the commemoration of the Reverend’s memory.

Dr. King’s eldest living son then spoke to crowd about his late father.

“All over our nation, and really throughout our world, the question becomes what will we do as communities across America to fulfill and envision and make the dream become a reality, said Martin Luther King III, the eldest living son of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “I’m not here to talk about what has not happened because we know what has not happened, but what I’m here to do is look to the future, to figure out how we as a nation can come together as the nation we always have been.”

The son of Dr. King also said he and his family will honor the 50th commemoration of his father’s assassination on April 4th.

  1. There are some who would say Dr.King’s dream has become a nightmare. The racism, bigotry, and hate (on the part of both blacks and whites) is still here……not much has really changed in the nearly 50 years after his death. In the heart of redneck country, I can still remember as a kid how people cheered and applauded when they heard the news back in `68 that King had been killed. I could not understand such hatred as a child……..and those same people probably are still full of the same hatred even now, sad to say, and our nation continues to be divided and at each others throats to this very day.

  2. Final word from me on this subject the proper script title for Mr.King is “The Reverend Dr.Martian Luther King Jr.I see about 90% of neglect the Reverend part when you converse about.

  3. Yea, a real racist does this.

  4. hhhhmmmm, what will you do???
    How about…. —> WORK ON THE “CONTENT OF YOUR CHARACTER” ALREADY!!!! HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO ASSIMILATE AND NOT BE A DRAIN OR WHINE????

    Websites like this one offer a fascinating glimpse into the mentality of a cult, specifically the Trump cult. In their eyes he is superhuman figure who can do no wrong. The more he debases his office and lowers us in the eyes of the world, the louder they hoot and holler.
    This sickness will be treated starting with the November midterm election. i just hope it’s not too late.

  6. MLK was definitely a 180 degrees different from what we had in the White House during the last administration. How anyone could think that President Trump is a racist after what he has already done for blacks and ALL people is just uncomprehensible. That inclused the idiot giving Pocahontis a bad name.

  7. SaidNO2Liberalism | January 16, 2018 at 6:49 am |

    Democrats have been, and successfully, dismantled Reverend King’s legacy, judging people by the content of their character, through the strategy of identity politics and judging people by the color of their skin.

  8. NAACP in Texas insulting King by using it as a black mail tool against Republicans. NAACP has no respect for Reverend King or his family!

    I am white and I am happy to say that I have, throughout my life, met many great black people that I am proud to call my friends. Racism and hate only deprives us all of good friendships that good be formed and the great learning experience we can gain form having a different culture in our lives. No race is perfect…there is good and bad in EVERY race. Let’s get along and learn from each other. God created ALL races…not just the whites!

    I love his monument. “Free at last….”What a wonderful passage of comfort. Rev. King would be pleased I think to see what a mark he left in this nation!

  12. paul-harvey du bois | January 16, 2018 at 3:44 am |

    King plagiarized his doctoral thesis, the dissertation for a diploma in theology and even his famous “I have a dream” speech. He was a noted philanderer and the night before his assassination, was involved in a sex party where he abused a white woman. He maintained that he was a Christian but refused to acknowledge the theology of his own church, and at JFK’s funeral he even made some rather disparaging remarks about Jackie Kennedy as she knelt to pay her last respects before her husband’s casket. This information has been recorded in FBI files which I am transmitting here, but, sure if you want to go ahead and “love” this abject fraud in spite of his faults, feel free to do so.

  13. Shane Norkus | January 16, 2018 at 12:11 am |

    I don’t know why Martin Luther King, Jr. has a national holiday. All he did was preach nonviolence and gave a couple of good speeches, some of which he plagiarized.

    His “I Have a Dream” speech is my favorite, but negroes have turned that speech upside down. They ALL want to be judged by their skin color – lower standards of behavior and lower expectations – rather than the content of their character.

    MLK, Jr. was a womanizer who preferred the company of white, trashy women rather than the woman he married and the mother of his children.

    He was also a huge supporter of Margaret Sanger, the eugenicist who thought of minorities as “human weeds” which should be eradicated. She only wanted wealthy people to reproduce, not poor people, not minorities and certainly not stupid people because she believed they were a drain on society.

    • semperfipar | January 16, 2018 at 2:23 am |

      It has always been about class not race.

      • Shane Norkus | January 16, 2018 at 9:00 am |

        and, what ‘class’ would that be? a man who spent more time with trashy, white women than he did his wife and mother of his children? or, that he believed in Margaret Sanger’s vision for minorities?

        I don’t get the fascination with the myth surrounding him.

  14. God bless you Dr. King. Dr. King was not only a very learned man who earned the title of “Dr.” but he was also a great man of faith who earned the title of “Reverend”. It is saddens me that the very source of Dr. King’s hope, his Christian faith, is marginalized by the Left to the point that many people do not even realize he was a Christian. Dr. King was not just a “good” man, he was a man of God. If “we” want to pass on his legacy, we would do good by knowing more about the Bible and the God that gave Dr. King his wisdom. #Blacks4Trump

  15. When ALL blacks figure out what the white liberal plantation-along with their black overseers have done-and continue to do against them, they will become far more Conservative than Queen Victoria…

  16. It’s interesting they always seem to fail to mention that MLK told black people, white people dont owe you,the government doesn’t owe you, get up, go to school and make your own future.

    • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:56 pm |

      I agree that white people do not owe black people anything. Nor do we have any reason to be “grateful” to you. That’s what gets me. This business of calling black people “ungrateful.” Grateful for WHAT?

    • It is ironic that the Democrats convinced black people that white people do owe them and that government DOES owe them. Just a vicious circle. When blacks do try to aspire for something greater they are told by their own that they are “uncles toms” or other. Makes no sense

  17. Play the FB8 tapes …read the info

  18. Wow some of you people are rude and obnoxious.This story is about a great human being.A man who tried
    to bring this country together and treat everyone the same no matter what their skin color yet you interject your coblegoke and kindergarden speak.Im ashamed at what this country as become when on this day we should be honoring the late Dr.Martian Luther King instead of throwing insults at each other.

    • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:29 pm |

    • Who’s insulting who? Are you a liberal and just jumped to conclusions?

      • Hey Al now that is insulting.Me a liberal.Thats like looking at your last name and calling you a radical muslim..Sorry you missed my point.

    Black Americans’ unemployment rate dropped within one year of President Trump administration while their homeownership increase during the same period, according to the Census Bureau. I am hopefully these facts will see a 2018 victory for the GOP.

    • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:17 pm |

      The black unemployment dropped by more than half while Barack Obama was in office. The stock market more than doubled in value.

      • Stats please?

        • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:26 pm |

          Look it up. You have an internet connection just like I do.

          • Can’t, Never Yielding Truth and The Washedup Post put up a pay wall but I’ll let you go on believing the lies they keep pumping in you.

          • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:32 pm |

            I don’t blindly believe any single source. But the news is real. Trump is fake. There’s nothing fake about his attempt to destroy American democracy and replace it with a cult of personality, however. That’s very real and it has to be defeated.

          • In other words you think he is lying to the American people. He’s as much a liar as you are a true Christian.

          • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:39 pm |

            Again, Trump lies the way other people breathe. And thinks no more about it. He lies boldly and shamelessly about all things great and small.

          • Thanks for clarifying that. Now, about the ‘true Christian’ part of my comment?

          • Twinkle Toes | January 15, 2018 at 11:18 pm |

            His comments are clear as mud.

          • Yuppers and that is why I persisted on the Christian claim. He should be posting “We should all pray for our president to lead our country in the right direction”. I was hoping someone would catch my point and you did.

          • Twinkle Toes | January 15, 2018 at 11:06 pm |

            In typical leftist style you use a lot of adjectives and provide no facts to substantiate your comments. Anyone can make an accusation, give me the facts, George.

          • Internetnutbrain, Yep Trump is fake.He has built many state of the art high rise buildings and hotels, fake. He is worth roughly 9 billion. fake. He has 34,000 employees,fake. He met with Yokohama Tire CEO and convinced him to build a massive factory in the US and hire thousands of employees. Ford is doing to same and many other large companies. He is cutting taxes, building a wall to secure the border to stop criminals and welfare SUCKING leaches and millions of pounds of meth,cocaine and heroin from getting in. He is beefing up our military because he believes in peace through strength. Yep, It’s all just fake. None of this is true,just made up fake stuff.

            You know,they have specialized treatment programs and medication for people like you.

          • Dang you’re good!!! You should try to get on with Sarah Sanders with those credentials. The two of you could really wipe the floor with the fake journalists.

          • I think he means look it up on any democrat web site, thats where you’ll find it.

          • Well those two are. Maybe I should go to Potyco or The Hill.

      • You obviously own no stocks or mutual funds.

    • Black unemployment rate at 6.8% after one year of Pres Trump. We know that the Left will do everything in it’s power to not give him credit for it but we know better. I am also hopeful that blacks will open their eyes and start to think for themselves.

    Since Donald Trump considers Africa to be a continent of sh*thole countries he must think the Americans who are descended from the Africans brought here in chains on slave ships are sh*thole-Americans.

    • Not at all, Trump is referring to the governments running said sh*thole countries. Really?! This isn’t complicated

      • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:14 pm |

        Considering what was done to Africa, I think they deserve a lot of credit for having come back this far this fast. And I’m not just talking about the 400-year trans-Atlantic slave trade or the century of colonial exploitation that followed. No one talks about the Arab/Muslim slave trade that lasted 1,400 years and devastated the continent to a much greater extent.
        HeII. it’s still going on today in some parts of Africa.

        • Or the that the African warlords/tribal leaders tore Africa apart for power and greed

          • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:21 pm |

            I’m totally not into playing the blame game for what happened. I’m just acknowledging that it happened. No people, race of people, country or countries deserve all the blame. I do consider Africans to be the least culpable.

        • What was done to Africa was self inflicted.

          • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 7:28 pm |

            Africa did not create a demand for slaves in America and the Caribbeans and arm themselves with weapons so they could attack their neighbors and take captives to be sold as slaves.

          • Man are you well versed in those re-education history books!

          • You forgot to mention that black armies invaded entire villages,killed any resistors and took everyone else prisoner and marched them to the coast where they sold them to the slave ships. They raped the women first and kept any they might want for later use.

    • If you go to ANY black community in America it is TRASHED. Why? Because THEY trash it and destroy it. EVERY black community in America is dangerous,has very high violent crime rates,street gangs and huge drug problems and prostitution is big business. No black nation has evolved and progressed along with the rest of the world. The US,England, France,Germany,Russia and many more have all made massive strides forward in state of the art technology. What computers,communications devices,TV’s, Automobiles,airplanes,satellites, Medical advances or medicines have black nations engineered,invented or developed on their own? NONE.

You evidently are satisfied with politicians who lie to you to get you to vote for them then they just keep kicking that can down the road. If he did say those countries a $#!t holes then he was being honest. Also, why does your credible news source, Concocted News Network, single out only the countries of black people? He included countries to the south of us just in case you didn’t get that part of the news.

      • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 6:51 pm |

        Trying to pit black people against brown people is a losing strategy for Republicans.

          • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 6:59 pm |

            I’m Episcopalian. Episcopalians can not be racist. Seriously, A Jamican lady and I are the only black members of our church. If I were racist why would I go an almost all-white church?

          • Since when has religion preventing people from bringing racist? You need some better guidance. I suggest reading the Bible. Get a KJV and a 1828 Websters dictionary. Do a search on the majority texts and/or textus receptus

          • You may be Episcopalian but you hate and that makes you contradictory.

    Is it really coming up on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination? It seems as if it were yesterday. There’s a lot of water under the bridge since then, but it doesn’t include the fulfillment of his dreams yet. There are still a lot of people who are busy committing mass murder against the unborn babies, mostly black, and still a lot of people who judge people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.

    Dr. King was human and therefore not perfect, but he definitely had some right ideas, and those ideas WILL come to fruition because of the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) our Redeemer, for He will bring these Dark Ages to a close and begin the Age to Come. As Jude says near the end of his short letter, just before Revelation in your KJV, the Master will come with tens of thousands of His saints to judge and make war against evil in righteousness (Revelation 19:11) until He makes the kingdoms of this world the Kingdom of Yahuwah and of His Messiah (Revelation 11:15). That is when Dr. King’s dreams will be fulfilled beyond his and our wildest imagination, for the Master Yahusha will place all of those who believed and testified of Him in His Kingdom in positions according to their abilities, and we will e amazed at what we can do when the Master has changed us from mortal to immortal, per 1Corinthians 15.

    HalleluYAH and amein!

    Just a reminder that three “adult film actresses” have come forward over the past weekend to say they engaged in extra-marital affairs with the so-called president of the United States.

    And looking back on the timeline of Trump’s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels, who allegedly received $130,000 (Where did THAT money come from? I’m betting Shelly Adelstein.) one month before the election to keep quiet about the 2006 affair.

    And apparently, the mainstream media is too busy figuring out how Hawaii was held by a fake nuclear bombing warning…okay that’s legit.

    Happy MLK Day – Happy Golfing Donnie the Dodger!

          That’s what bothers me. Not his sex life or the fact that he’s lining his pockets. Lining his pockets is serious but for now I’m more concerned about his war against American Democracy and the rule of law.

    @lady fincannon
    I didn’t even need three minutes. You think a “compromise” to maintain human chattel slavery in 1860 would have worked? Seriously? That ship had sailed. If we had abolished slavery 30 years earlier like Great Britain did throughout their empire (with financial compensation for the former slave owners) that might have worked.

    • landy fincannon | January 15, 2018 at 6:21 pm |

      • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 6:27 pm |

        Look, like almost every other white American who was alive during the mid 19th century Abraham Lincoln held some views about black people that would be considered horribly racist by modern standards of political correctness.
        For his times he was flaming liberal on the subject of race. His political enemies dubbed him “Abraham Africanus the First.”

    God Bless America, our President and his Family!

  31. Did they play the FBI tapes or read them aloud?

  32. Dr. King would be so embarrassed as to what happened to the democrat party.

    • I’m sure he was embarrassed of what the democrat party was back then too, he was a republican.

      • I don’t think he was embarrassed. I think he was angered. Martin Luther King was one of the first black leaders who saw the Democratic Party for what it was. He saw the Democratic Party trying to keep black Americans on the Plantation.

        Not the one they escaped from. Not that one. But the one instead, that the Democratic Party created for them. A system of welfare programs and food stamps and other entitlements that kept them in slavery. A different kind of slavery, for sure. But slavery, nonetheless.

    • I’m sure he was embarrassed of what the democrat party was back then too, he was a republican.

          How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
          There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.
          1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
          2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
          3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
          4) Gun control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from government. That way you are able to create a police state.
          5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
          6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
          7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.
          8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

      Why? He was a Republican most of his brief life. There was a time when “the Party of Lincoln” had no more loyal constituents than black people. Furthermore, we didn’t leave the Party of Lincoln. The Party of Lincoln left us.
      With open racist Donald Trump now the face of the party, I’m afraid the break is permanent and not reversible.

        • internettoughguy | January 15, 2018 at 5:54 pm |

          Nothing is going to change my perspective on the American Civil War. It was an attempt to maintain human chattel slavery in a country that was supposedly founded on the idea that “All men are created equal.”

          • landy fincannon | January 15, 2018 at 5:56 pm |

            No not “exclusively.” But lets cut through the bs. That was what it was about. I will not attempt to engage in a serious debate or discussion with anyone who claims that it was not.

Do you know how many black Americans owned slaves and fought for the confederacy to protect their slave labor? If you had the ability to objectively look at American history you would realize the dems have always been the party of slavery and they have never changed, sure half black obama was a democrat but black unemployment doubled under his watch.

You were probably a twinkle in your daddies eye then or still in diaper but a lot of us who fought for real discrimination in the 60s remember.

  33. Man the Lefties are going bonkers because Trump didn’t work at a soup kitchen. He is working for free and gives his income to a needy cause. That goes way beyond serving stupid soup.

    • Cecilia Matos | January 15, 2018 at 5:38 pm |

      Keep drinking that kool-aid=Trump is making a mint off this presidency gig and as far as him donating??? HA! Only when he needs to be called out on his claims to donate like the VETS had to do.
      Drink up! MASA=Make America Smart Again 🙂 Sorry not much hope for you.

      • Please provide your credible sources / evidence that the President “.is making a mint off this presidency gig.” I searched but can find only leftwing rhetorical allegations with no proof.

        • He because they think that old saying of “You have to spend a dollar to make a penny” is true.

      • Cecilia, there is no doubt that there are some things we most certainly agree on. Probably just as many things out there that we don’t agree on.
        But I just wanted you to know that I appreciate having you here in this conversation. For what it’s worth.

      • Look up your Dem politicians net worth BEFORE they became politicians! You will find they became multi millionaires for the first time after they became low paid politicians. Actually their actual salaries are not enough to even rent an apartment in DC. Some, the honest ones, live in their offices because they are only there a few weeks at a time & can’t afford keeping up 2 residences. They have found really interesting furniture that folds out as a dinning table & bed. But those are the honest and enterprising ones. The rest sell their votes for money from PACS & criminals. Wake up little one you are the one drinking the Kool aid!

    • When one has the resources to do more charitable works such as the President, working at a soup kitchen would simply be a photo op for show. Trump, by his very nature, is NOT into superficial trivialities but instead strives for actions that bring results. On the other hand, people of very modest means and few resources can help the needy by working at food kitchens or in any capacity of which they are capable.

      • Your comment made me think about such things. This is what I think. The homeless population here in Tucson is simply off the charts. They live in every public park in our community. There is no such thing as taking your children to the park and having a fun day. Not even close.

        If you want to know the truth, the entire thing with the homeless here in Tucson is obscene. I live here.

        • Yep, and what are your elected officials doing about it. The truth is the federal government can not by law do anything about the homeless in your city. Only your city & state can do that. But the most successful work done is by the citizens. So the question is what are you doing?

  34. Thank you President Trump. This commemoration shows great character, something Dr. M.L.King Jr. died for and something demoncrats inherently lack.

    • How dare this man talk about the great mlk

    • Cecilia Matos | January 15, 2018 at 5:41 pm |

      Yes on this blessed MLK Day – let’s welcome Scandinavians and NOT people of color.

      • How about we welcome people regardless of color but who we know can actually contribute something positive to our country rather than more crime or becoming more welfare recipients? That’s what the President and the majority of Americans want (as evidenced by recent polls). Country of origin can sometimes be a high percentage predictor of the relative quality of immigrants – as proven by experience. But President Trump is not even suggesting that – he questions why Democrats are hell-bent on bringing in masses of these desperate poor unskilled people from countries where history has proven they have little or nothing to contribute but who far too often wind up hurting Americans, winding up in jails, or sucking up tax dollars on welfare lists. You can cite all the anecdotal evidence to the contrary that you can find but that does not override the overwhelming hard evidence of large numbers.

      • Did you know that there are black, brown, oriental Scandinavians also? Not real bright are you! They would be welcome here also as long as they fit the requirements to be able to get a job and take care of themselves. AND do it legally! No one has deported any LEGAL blacks, browns, Orientals or even Martins that are here LEGALLY and supporting themselves in a legal manor!

            Most Liberals are educated-can’t say much about other ideologies. Conservatives would like you to believe that they are economic wonders but the sad truth is that they are the stingiest money hugging slime that you’ll see. Most of conservatives like to promote themselves as Christians when everything they believe in goes against Christ’s teachings.
            Jarhead- too much hostility blurs comprehension. Do not tell me that there were no Republicians under those white hoods. So many dumb racists back then didn’t really know what to believe except their fear driven hate. Yes I know about the history-having lived it.
            So tell me Jar…WHO do we need to look up to now? Get used to liberals taking over because Trump and the GOP has made a mockery of what it truly means to be American globally. Hey maybe you should consider going somewhere else as you are an outsider yourself…that is unless you are an American Indian or a Mexican…the TRUE natives of this country.
            Look THAT up fella but let me inform you….it was before your time.
            PS- I use my real name as I don’t need to hide myself or my beliefs. So brave of you in your bloody boots!

          • Well seeing as over a quarter of people lynched in the south were white republicans it is clear you are pulling “facts” out of thin air. Go on a reservation and tell the American Indians that Mexicans were true natives of this country and they might die from laughter, Mexico claimed American Indian territory but they got attacked by Indians constantly and they couldn’t develop permanent settlements much north of the modern day Mexican border. The modern American Indian tribes killed the tribes that lived in this geographical area prior to them, should they give up their land to the tribes who were here first? You might want to do some actual research before you spout off because we could have just assumed you weren’t intelligent but now you have provided proof of your ignorance.

            LOL, get used to liberals taking over? You’re a complete m0r0n and most liberals are not educated. They just never leave college or pay back their student loans. My bloody boots are bloody to ensure people like you, cowards, can lie online. Your Welcome. And fyi, I hail from the Cherokee Nation. Dang illegals, go back to your sh!th0les.

    • So? you brag about being a murderer? SO SAD YOU ARE.

      • No, you are the sad one.
        Fact is, guys like Jarhead0311 are the ones deserving the accolades, King was exactly what he says and more. A worthless rabble rousing enemy of the State and everything decent.

    • So? you brag about being a murderer? SO SAD YOU ARE.

  43. Beautiful

  44. The thing I love most about Dr. King’s dream is that it is not about weather you are black or white.

    • Right on!

      (btw – it’s whether);)

    • The thing about his dream was that it was all about giving power to blacks and sticking it to ‘whitey’. As it seems to be with most of them.

      • You were either not alive or were too young to be aware of much in 1963. Blacks were treated like second class citizens up to that time in far too many areas of this country. So when it began , most blacks – like Rosa Parks – simply wanted an end to their unfair treatment and wanted to have the same potential access to stores, restaurants, services – the normal things that everyday Americans enjoyed. Yes many blacks were angry and were not educated enough (again, not necessarily their fault) to know how to go about seeing redress peacefully. People who cannot handle confrontation civilly often resort to violence. Young blacks in 1963 forward were goaded into violence by the race hustlers and anarchists of the day, many of whom were white.
        Despite his many personal flaws (everyone has personal flaws) Dr. King came to represent that wish to the nation through his better than average oratory skills. It was more devious and unscrupulous power seekers who saw blacks’ situation as a way to foment unrest and convince blacks that they “deserved” far more than just being equal in order to make up for 200+ years of mistreatment. Those opportunists became the race hustler extortionists such as Jess Jackson and Al Sharpton. And then that entire movement was co=opted by the Democrat Party as they saw an opportunity to gain an entire constituency via pandering to the blacks grievances, which the Democrats also realized would be politically and financially very lucrative to never fully resolve.

          Now there was an accurate picture, not filled with hate as a couple of these posts have been. Thank you.

          • Living in the Times | January 16, 2018 at 4:48 am |

            I agree. Concerning the MLK speeches I have heard, he never preached violence, or hatred or bigotry against whites…just peace and equality.

        • ComradeAdam | January 15, 2018 at 6:55 pm |

          And even back then the CIA was spread rumors about the democrats’ opponents sleeping around in order to turn public opinion. And even back then the democrats were trying to create racial division and use that to win votes.
          But, for the democrat party leaders we would already have achieved MLK Jr’s dream of a united people.

        • James Gatto | January 15, 2018 at 8:04 pm |

          You hit the nail directly on the head. Nice to hear someone who knows what they’re talking about.

        • This is right on the money. The Democrats have been able to market their narrative so effectively that it has negatively impacted generations of black Americans. I’ll say it – it’s like modern day slavery – keep a group of people oppressed and dependent so they won’t go anywhere else for help.

          Those who understood that, broke away from the system and created and accomplished their own dreams, just as MLK called for. Those who did not or could not, still suffer today under the liberal agenda which began with good intentions. The problem with any initiative is that it involves people and people are subject to greed and corruption.

      • ShemSilber2 | January 15, 2018 at 6:42 pm |

        Absolutely not! If you know about Dr. King, then you know that he was for fair treatment across the board, and he was not at ALL like any of these White or Black Supremists, wanting to shaft any of different skin shades. “Straighten up and Fly RIGHT!” already.

      • James Gatto | January 15, 2018 at 8:01 pm |

        WRONG,

      • He was the antithesis of Black Power. He was brilliant in addressing inequality as a human rights issue and not a black issue. This gave legitimacy to his platform as everyone could relate to human rights. Not everyone understood the plight of black Americans.

  45. I’m happy to have been a witness to Dr. King’s life.

    • 2 Coats Eldin | January 15, 2018 at 3:19 pm |

      Martin Luther King would be pleased with President Trump. He’s done more for Blacks in America in one year than Obama ever dreamed. Bureau of Labor Statistics states unemployment for black Americans fell below 7%, the lowest mark since 70’s.

  46. Marty Kirkpatrick | January 15, 2018 at 1:45 pm |

    Thank you to a great man, Rev. King..I wonder if coming together as a nation will ever start happening with Trump, or should I just expect more obstruction and race baiting from the left?

    • As long as there are liberal dumbocratics it will (unfortunately) NEVER HAPPEN.

      • Cecilia Matos | January 15, 2018 at 4:15 pm |

        Being Liberal is being accepting to all beliefs and all types of people. All means everyone including aldoro {UGH but true). Do not blame division that Trump and the GOP promote on our liberal Americans. Marty can expect future obstruction and a good damn fight for the rights of all because Liberals fight for every American, even those too ignorant to see it and unfortunate to realize WHY we fight. Bless the thoughtful liberal resistance members, everyone of them!

        • No, the left divided the society. Republicans believe everyone has qualities, talents and must be given opportunities to develop them.

        • Gotta be kidding me. People like you, with your gullible idiocy, will be the damn nails in humanities coffin. You literally deserve what you keep asking for and empowering, but the rest of us DO NOT.
          At least don’t lie about your motives, you unmitigated lemming idiot.

          • People will all come together we can feel it.

          • Sadly, no, they won’t. It’s always going to about power. That’s ALL King was about.

          • Think we will see more shift together soon. 1.0 million came off food stamps last year, as some states tightened up on requirements to get benefits. Have to have a job, be trying to get a job, filling out resumes and searching, or in school to learn to be useful, and fill a need in USA.
            And the TAX bill just enacted, requires that too.
            —– Newt Gingrich had enough clout in early 1900s when 2nd term elections came around, to carry a lot of Republicans into office, in House, to take control of House. Shut down government for 22 days, and got Bill Clinton attention. Legislation passed then, required what this tax bill requires, and there was a large increase in people working, off of benefits, and took in more revenue then was spent, resulting in the bragged on, positive change in reducing some of national debt, though overall, the debt is increase due to interest paid on the debt. Democrats bragged on SURPLUS IN THAT period, but it was Republicans who forced smaller government, with increased revenue.
            DEMOCRATS ARE NOT I PROCESS OF FORCING GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN, BUT THEY WILL SUFFER IN NEXT ELECTION. They will lose more seats, if they stick to that agenda.

          • what about giving more power to the people? I feel that social media helps a lot

          • Twinkle Toes | January 16, 2018 at 9:18 pm |

            “lemming idiot”…I like that, do I have your permission to use it? It aptly describes the left.

        • SpfldJimbo1 | January 15, 2018 at 4:26 pm |

          A liberal, is a Conservative that just hasn’t been mugged yet.

        • Then you had better go back and read the text of Donald Trump on 19 January 2017, when he stated he would be the President for ALL AMERICANS. But the vitriol has been rolling since 16 June 2015, when Donald announced for President the day before. Establishment Republicans and Democrats, Media, PACs sprung up, Super PACs, sprung up, and lot of rich folks who had been fleecing middle class and low income for decades all sprung to the attack.
          ——–Please tell me, and all the others when you will quit what you just wrote, and give credit for what Donald has done in last years. He did it with all the spite, lies, twisting, and opposition you and others could throw out there, in print, on television, and in the streets. And what have you gained, in stopping him??
          ——We don’t have to worry about Russia, China, and others, You and others like you, are destroying trust, belief, or neighborliness with every foul lie you state.
          Get over it. Hillary was a lousy candidate, with more baggage then any candidate, ever. And Biden thinks the leaders in Venezuela are what we should emulate in this country. Bare shelves in the stores, no food in the warehouses, economy in the toilet, and killing in the streets. Grow up. USA food shelves are full, if you have the funds to buy.

        • Sorry, good try but no cigar. Liberals are nothing more than socialists trying to hide their true colors. Study some real history and find out how accepting the socialists were of the millions they killed. If you doubt this just look at your buddies Antifa. You’ve bought into liberal propaganda hook, line and sinker. Wise up before it’s too late.

        • Living in the Times | January 16, 2018 at 4:58 am |

          Accepting to all beliefs, liberals fight for every American?? Are you serious???? It seems you have good intentions but how do you justify the hate and violence against Republicans and our POTUS? Are Republicans and Mr. Trump excluded from the “every American” group????? YOU may have good intentions but I can tell you that you are among the minority in the Liberal group. I think you need to look at the overall picture of what Liberalism has become and move beyond what you think it is supposed to stand for. Your ideals do not match up to Liberal behavior.

        • Sheriff Bart | January 16, 2018 at 5:04 am |

          Your vision of fighting is blaming everyone but yourselves

          • Living in the Times | January 16, 2018 at 7:01 am |

            Blaming everyone but yourself is the Demo/liberal way! Remember “What Happened” by Clinton? She blamed everyone under the sun but her mother for her monumental loss. It is what they do!

        • NO IT DOESN’T. They use words to collect you and enslave you. They used the word “liberal” to blind you to what they really are. They use the word “progressive” to force you into an enslavement mentality. P.S. So did Marx, Lennon & Stalin. In fact everything the liberals have done, everything the Democrats have done, everything Obama did is based on the communist outline.
          Beware the Useful Idiots
          Submitted by Garret Geer
          Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his book.
          Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.
          Books (he wrote) Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals.
          Anyone out there think that this stuff isn’t happening today in the U.S.?
          All eight rules are currently in play.
          How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
          There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.
          1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
          2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
          3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
          4) Gun control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from government. That way you are able to create a police state.
          5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
          6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
          7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.
          8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

          Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?
          Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for the world conquest by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as “USEFUL IDIOTS.”
          The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S.
          “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.” Said Stalin

          O yeah you guys really want equality all right, that is equality without white people and Christians, and men that is. Cecilia go spread lies elsewhere as your ignorance isn’t needed here.

        • Twinkle Toes | January 16, 2018 at 9:16 pm |

          You are living a lie. Liberals are not accepting of all beliefs, especially Christians and whites which both are proven in recent evens. You live in a liberal glass bubble refusing to see yourself for what you really are and making excuses for everything you say and do.

        • Twinkle Toes | January 16, 2018 at 9:25 pm |

          How accepting are you of Christians and their beliefs the Bible is the inerrant word of God? Are you accepting and tolerant of those people?

          Do you demand Christians bake cakes for gay weddings even though it is against their religious belief? Are you accepting and tolerant of those people?

    • Twinkle Toes | January 16, 2018 at 9:14 pm |

      the latter, unfortunately.

  47. Does anyone else not have something to say ? ………..

    • I feel turned inside-out whenever this subject comes up. I had a Very dear friend who died for The Cause. JMD. What to say? He stood up for what he believed. He was Tragically out of his element – a northerner on the march in the deep south in the ’60s. His arm around a black friend in the deep south – shot down like a dog by a store owner there.
      No, I can’t go on.
