Alveda King, Niece of Martin Luther King Jr, endorses McCain-Palin
The Philadelphia Bulletin ^ | 10/22/08 | Michael P. Tremoglie

Posted on 10/22/2008 12:00:24 PM PDT by Antoninus

"I am very excited about the McCain-Palin ticket, simply because they support the values that mean the most to me," Ms. King said. "It is a plus to me that Sarah Palin is a woman because I've been elected to office as a wife and mother. I've been appointed to office as a woman and at the time I was a mother and became a grandmother." 



Ms. King said her experience taught her she could both be a good mother and still serve the public. This is something she has in common with Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, McCain's running mate.

However, the most important reason she is backing the McCain-Palin ticket is its commitment to the pro-life cause.

This blurb was buried in an article already posted on FR, but it needs wider distribution.

Don't expect the leftwing media to pick it up.

Here's a link to the video: Faith, Race, and Politics

Spread it around!

She’s always been a champion for the unborn.

God bless her.

Don't wait for them to. McCain needs to thank her for the honor of the endorsement in every stump speech. Palin does, too.

This will probably get more press coverage than Colin Powell's announcement!

Okay, maybe not.

How can this be? The annointed one, the great American ObaMahdi should not lose even one person of color...not one...much less any relative of MLK. [/dripping sarcasm]

Forget the campaign, we need to spread the word on our own. Fire up your email lists. Post links to the video all over the place.

Come on, people! We've got great ammo. We've got the internet. Let's use it!

So far, aside from the article in the Bulletin, it's gotten NO press coverage.

We need to bombard the media with this. Force them to acknowledge it.

I can't help but wonder how many Black Christians will do the same even though they aren't saying anything. In the end there is no way a Christian supports someone who believes in infanticide.

I thought MLK III was also for McCain - came out the same time as Colin Powell’s son Michael - who is a decent guy with a personality. His dad has no personality.

It would be helpful if McCain would use her endorsement in a TV spot AD.

I'm so proud the niece of Dr. King is endorsing the GOP.

And it won’t get out because Alveda has been a champion of the unborn for decades. She’s one of those Christians the left and media love to hate.

If Palin/MCcain talk about it on the stump, the media can’t ignore it. There’s just so much to talk about.

In fact do any Conservatives who do any kind of commentary know about this?

I appreciate that she took a good look at the core values of each team, and made a decision. I have always said, if Blacks broke out 50/50 to 60/40 for candidates, I wouldn’t find fault with it. It’s the 95/5 votes that have me thinking they are not looking at issues before coming to decisions.

I’m glad she came down on the side of McCain/Palin here. If right to life is what motivates her, then I think she made a wise choice.

I can only pray that, over time, more black women start to think like her, and see where the “progressives” are leading us: back into slavery. Oh, it’ll be a nice slavery, with a 50” TV and free food stamps, but it will still be slavery. And their souls will be destroyed because they never learn the basics or feel the joy of earning your own way.

I've heard her speak in person and met her briefly. Alveda is smart, engaging and a free woman who sees abortion for what it is, evil.

MLK would be proud of his niece I think.

The annoying thing is that many Blacks are pro-life. The trouble is that many of them have incredible difficulty breaking out of that mindset that says if you vote Republican, you're a traitor to your race.

Alveda King has no such difficulty. If you're not pro-life, she won't support you. Very courageous woman.

There are a lot of Obama supporters at my kids’ Christian schools here in California. My kids think they are for Obama because of environmental issues and the war in Iraq.

It’s better then when they were in public school where 99% of the kids were coming from democrat families.
