• Right Wing #fails on MLK Jr Day

    Chipsterlife buddy Daraka Larimore-Hall came up with this amazing prompt on FB, Hey team Facebook- post a link in the comments to the dumbest, most ahistorical thing said by a conservative about Martin Luther King Jr today. Extra points if made by an elected official." and here are the results 

     

     

    From Dinesh D'Souza @DineshDSouza

    MLK's best legacy: the color-blind ideal; his worst legacy: Obama

    SOUL BROTHERS: Obama gets along so well with guys like Holder and Sharpton because they are all shakedown artists of one sort or another

    HOW FAR WE HAVE FALLEN: For all his flaws MLK was a great man, larger than life; by contrast, Obama is a hollow man, smaller than life

    AN INTERESTING PARALLEL: MLK was targeted by J. Edgar Hoover, an unsavory character; I was targeted by the equally unsavory B. Hussein Obama

     

    From the TCOT Report

    Happy Birthday to Conservative Icon Martin Luther King, Jr!Today, January 15, is the birthday of civil rights pioneer Martin Luther King Jr. Whose “I Have A Dream” speech will be forever remembered as one of the defining moments of the 20th Century.


    King was a Republican, as were most blacks of the time, and the speech reflects the core conservative belief that people should be valued by “the content of their character” and not by “the color of their skin.”

    Conservatives today still live that dream. Now as then, the Democrats do not.

    ‘Cowboy’ conservative claims MLK for the Tea Party until liberals stop bringing up race

    Kiplinger:"What to Buy During MLK Weekend Sales"

    "Bath and bedding items. Department stores and home-goods retailers have long held “white sales” in January featuring discounts on bed linens. Now those sales often include a variety of bed and bath items, as well as other home goods. Shelton says there will be plenty of white sales over MLK weekend, with discounts of 30% to 50%."

      Keep delving into King there, Concerned Conservative, and elnuteavly you’ll read his final book,Where We Go From Here, written the year before his murder.In that book, he argued there should be a guaranteed income for all Americans.“The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism at the dawn of civilization, when men ate each other because they had not yet learned to take food from the soil or to consume the abundant animal life around them. The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty,” King wrote in arguing the point.But I do believe you’re exactly right that his politics sprung directly from the Bible, that he was a Chrisian preacher with Christian values. What drove him? Mostly the desire to see those values in our lives, our society and our government – though the man understand all too well that we all fall short.
