COMPARING MARTIN LUTHER KING TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

King was born in the deep South in the middle of poverty, attended segregated public schools and graduated from Morehouse College, a Negro institution.  He saw a nation sorely divided and devoted his life to uniting it.  Obama was born into relative affluence in Hawaii, attended private schools and graduated from Harvard.  He saw the nation King fought to unite and proceeded to polarize it.  King fought for equal opportunity for everyone, a decidedly conservative notion.  Obama strives to equalize wealth, a decidedly socialist notion.  King had a dream.  King’s dream was of a color blind America where all men would be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin.  Obama also has a dream.  His dream is from his father whose vision was of a utopian world without a superpower he deemed to be oppressive.

Where King sought healing, Obama seeks reparations.  King sought to transform America he saw by ridding the nation of segregation and racism.  Obama has vowed to transform America but has never revealed exactly how he Hopes to Change it.

Martin Luther King is rightly honored by a holiday.  If Barack Hussein Obama gets a postage stamp it will be enough.

The heart of the speech starts at the 12 minute point.  You can skip to it, but do so only if you must.  Or go here for a shorter portion of the speech ( and better audio).

HONORING MARTIN LUTHER KING

MARTIN LUTHER KING

Today we honor Martin Luther King. He was the right man at the right time. His death was a tragedy; his birth was a blessing; he earned he birthday we celebrate each spring. Today we remember him on the 45th anniversary of his “I have a dream” speech given on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

His dream was of a color blind America where a man would be judged by his character, not the color of his skin. We had come a long way toward fulfillment, and then progress was slowed to a crawl by the two opportunistic perpetuaters, Jackson and Sharpton. But the real spoiler of King’s dream is Barack Obama.

If by some turn of events, Colin Powell were seated at the White House, and not Barack Obama, this country would not be experiencing the current growth in the racial divide.

I was 23 years old in 1965, white and living in the North but I remember segregation very well. I do hope you will take the time to watch and listen to Martin Luther King and “I have a dream”.
