I'm sure MLK jr was a great guy and all that, but does anyone else think it's gets a little nauseous to see an endless series of Facebook friends, LinkedIn connections, politicians, and celebrities trying to show how deep and respectful of the man by posting some quote of his all day?
If you have a holiday named after you, its what happens. You get a lot of attention.
For Liberals it’s a religious holiday.
Anything less than complete glorification of King is heresy.
What were MLK's contributions, other than generating support for more federal government power and interference, and making "discrimination" a "bad" word? "Discrimination" means "choice". We discriminate every day - if we didn't we'd die. Discrimination is a good thing. We need to recover our lexicon that freedom of discrimination and choice is the God-given right of every individual as long as it does not interfere with anothers life & freedom.
Credit MLK for stirring up consciousness about the mistreatment of blacks and others. God bless him. Credit him for stirring up other blacks to snap out of a stupor and "get in the game" with courage and determination, the way Bill Cosby talks to the black community. God bless him fight for what you want.
But MLKs agenda was to sir up GOVERNMENT to FORCE what MLK wanted on non-blacks. The valid Constitutional issue was against STATE LAWS (not individuals) requiring SEGREGATION (not integration). But MLK contributed to influencing government force on the individual and to force integration. That was a contribution of a giant shove towards Socialism and tyranny.
Reassess your surety.
I agree with you so it isn’t just you. I’m tired of it too.
I figure anyone who hung out with people like Jesse Jackson was not all that nice. If he wasn’t shot I suspect he would be wealthy like Jesse Jackson in various shakedowns.
Didn’t see a single one.
Its not just you. I was nauseated by all the fluff from stupid liberals about what a great person Mandela and his friends wer “even thought he may have been a murdering terrorist communist, as you said, but I wasn’t aware of it, but you know what great things he did for South African, right?” Yeah, right up there with Che, Mao, Stalin. A bunch of loving and peaceful folks they were. Now George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were the REAL terrorists, don’t we all know. Yeah, it makes me sick at how stupid liberals are, and even more annoyed that they don’t know how stupid they are, and wallow in each others stupidity.
I wish they made half as big a deal out of Washington’s birthday.
I remember when they used to but that was back in the 1970’s.
“I wish they made half as big a deal out of Washingtons birthday.”
it’s not even Washington’s birthday anymore, it’s presidents day. a planned change to remove one more white Christian male American forefather from memory.
It all started with the Power to the People in the 60's, then Black and Women's Power in the 70's and Gay Pride in the 80's. Everyone has been "liberated," I guess.
WHY then do people still
whine moan bellyache complain if everyone is "liberated"?
When you don’t have much to look back on that makes you feel proud, good about yourself, when you lack accomplishment, heroes to believe in, you try making most of what you’ve got.
If he wasnt shot I suspect he would be wealthy like Jesse Jackson in various shakedowns.
And they definitely do not. I bet most American leftists regard Barack Obama as more important to America than George Washington. They believe that people should be judged by the color of their skin, not the content of their character.
Have not seen evidence of MLK being great
it’d just you
In the early 1970’s, back before MLK day was a holiday in California, I was in High School and as I approached my school (George Washington HS in San Fran) there were about 200 Blacks and about 20 white liberals protesting and wouldn’t let me cross the picket line and called me a racist simply because I wanted to go to school that day.
I imagine even back then, those 200+ kids got an excused absence for that missed day of school while us kids that went to school and did our school work were graded based on our work.
The post-MLK holiday sales begin tomorrow. Get in line now!
Best/worst one was NY governor Cuomo tweeting “@NYGovCuomo: I join with all New Yorkers in remembering the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, not only today, but every day. #MLKDay2014” right after broadcasting “conservatives have no place in NY.”
Some quote? How about a single quote, over and over again? I've known him all these years as the man of a single quote!
Isn’t this holiday celebrated by the release of a new version of Air Jordans?
In Houston this day is celebrated with a spirit of togetherness.
There is also a city ordinance that only permits one parade a day. Whoever claims the day (any day) first, gets it.
There are two MLK Day parades because neither community organizerer can cooperate with the other.
One of the provisions for MLK to speak somewhere was, he was to have two white women “escorts”.
Much of what the SRM and MLK’s heirs push is the same myth building Jackie O and the leftist press went into high gear with after JFK’s death.
I believe that it is more of a deification of MLK...
which goes into blasphemy.
The left constantly invalidates every aspect of their beliefs as regularly as they breath.
MLK day WAS recently removed from our counties benefit program as a waste of tax payers money. The employees didn’t complain one bit either, at least to my knowledge. Apparently they felt it was better time spent WORKING.
One of my black coworkers said off the collar: “...what your people did to my people...”
My people? My direct decendants came from Italy in 1900s.
His came from Jamiaca in the 1920s.
What did Italian immagrants do to Jamaican immagrants in the twenties?
Ignorant Effing People!!
The sad thing is that liberals use MLK day to excoriate the right more then they use it to help minorities. When will minorities wake up to the liberal nonsense?
