Posted on 08/28/2013 10:01:08 AM PDT by Biggirl
Fifty years ago this week, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous I have a dream speech. But in coverage of events celebrating its anniversary, the entirety of Kings address will rarely be reprinted, if at all, nor will viewers see footage of his speech delivered in full.
(Excerpt) Read more at washingtonpost.com ...
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves
and will bash in the heads of the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. and get no approbation from the President or their community.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of
freedom and justice EBT cards and bastard babies.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will
not be judged by the color of their skin but and not by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls
as sisters and brothers. and beat them to a pulp on school buses.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every
valley politician shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low exactly the same height by law, the rough places will be made plain like Detroit, and the crooked places will be made straight like Chicago, and the glory of the Lord The One shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.
Why are so many Sons Of Barack's violent thugs?
Let me guess,(I havent read the article yet) it’s
because all rights to the speech are held by the
The King family are clever business people.
To bad they are letting their father’s perceived image to be tarnished.
Yes, I said perceived, as I was alive when King hit his stride, I wont go further here.
The re-write by Obama and company.
And then there’s this from the article...
“A few years ago, the [King] estate received more than $700,000 from the nonprofit foundation that created and built the monument to King on the Mall in order to use his words and image.”
A real sticky point for the race baiters in charge of keeping all their Negroes on the plantation.
Article goes into full about the copyright of the speech:
In case you didn’t know, Martin Luther King was a Republican. If Obama knew his American history, he would try to ignore today’s anniversary.
>>A few years ago, the [King] estate received more than $700,000 from the nonprofit foundation that created and built the monument to King on the Mall in order to use his words and image.<<
have you seen that monstrosity? It looks like Chairman Mao. LOL.
It is the only monument in all DC where holder’s people congregate.
Yes, I did know.
As I said perceived.
Dear Uncle. You need to change your post. Approbation means approval. And they do get that.
Crap. I’ve been using that word wrong all my life. Thanks for the correction!
I pride myself on my vocabulary, and I really blew that one!
The narcissist in chief will change the title of his own speech to “I Am a Dream.
King’s family are a bunch of grifters, aren’t they?
I thought King’s legacy belonged to all Americans, and especially to all African-Americans, but I guess the King family thinks it belongs to them ... and they charge the rest of us to “use” it.
Regardless, the National Archives posts a copy of the full speech here:
I guess the government doesn’t have to abide by copyright law? Anyway, I couldn’t find any new outlet that posts the whole speech, but in this digital age, it’s just as good to post a link.
Perfectly good word, you just got it backwards. I’ve done the same myself, though not with that word.
You could use disapprobation or disapproval. I think condemnation or censure would be good too.
By the way, the updated speech satire is very good. Keep it up.
I heard on the radio that today’s speech anniversary event in D.C. had nothing to do with the content of the original speech.
I’m thinking there must be a similar sounding word that has the desired meaning. . .found this at dictionary.com :-)
1. disapproval, condemnation, or censure.
3. Theology; rejection by God, as of persons excluded from the number of the elect or from salvation.

IF YOU HAVE GOTTEN DOWN THIS FAR, THANK YOU. HOPING THIS WILL WAKE YOU UP!
I have a Dremel....
Great post, Warrior Nurse!
Taxman Bravo Zulu for your efforts here!
One has to wonder how the Democrats have managed to convince 90+ per cent of black Americans that they (Democrats) are their FRiends and Republicans are their enemies?
Of course, being LIEberals helped (THEY ALL LIE! ALL THE TIME!), but how so many people could even THINK the garbage the Democrats are peddling is expensive steak is well beyond my powers of reason!
Keep you head down, buddy! And your eyes and ears open! We need you back home, safe and sound!
How many pre-1964 southern racist Democrat bigots did NOT join the Republican party after 1964?
Benjamin Travis Laney
Al Gore, Sr.
In fact, it seems that MOST of the Dixiecrats did NOT join the Republican party, even though many of them lived long past 1964.
Only a very FEW of them switched to the GOP, such as Strom Thurmond and Mills Godwin.
And as we all know by now, the ONLY admitted former KKK member in Congress today is Robert Byrd, a former KKK Kleagle, a recruiter who persuaded people to join the KKK.
So where do we get this myth that “most” of the southern racist Democrats switched to the Republican party after 1964?
Is it a myth? Or just another Democrat LIE?
You forgot Sam Ervin, William Fullbright, Spessar Holland, and Lister Hill.
MLK supported paying everyone in the US a living wage, regardless of work. He was strongly opposed to our involvement in Vietnam. I believe he also wanted reparations for blacks.
Not a typical Republican, although I suspect McCain would figure out a way to support those ideas now...
Thanks should have looked too congressmen too
