    What a great day for America! Hundreds of thousands of Americans, of all races, came together at the Lincoln Memorial to Restore Honor to our nation. Yes, Glenn Back and Sarah Palin were the main speakers, but the real stars of the event were the people in the crowd. They came from across the country in peace and friendship. The vast multitude of patriots brought to mind a similar gathering on this day, on this spot, forty-seven years ago. Best remembered about the famed March on Washington is Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream speech. What was his dream?...

    A pretty good (certainly not completely objective, but by today's horrendous standards of objectivity pretty good) article by Mary C. Curtis sets up the dilemma of Glenn Beck's "8/28" rally at the Lincoln Memorial: Glenn Beck Rally in D.C. Saturday: Honoring MLK's Legacy -- or Hijacking It?Forty-seven years ago today, hundreds of thousands of Americans joined the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and witnessed the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. deliver his "I Have a Dream" speech, which summed up the hopes of generations. Today, crowds are repeating that trek – by bus, train, car and plane...

    A week from tomorrow, Saturday the 28th of August there will be a rally entitled "Restoring Honor" at the Lincoln Memorial. It comes on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a Dream" speech and without a doubt one of the seminal moments in American history. I was one of 200,000 in attendance on that historic day and in my mind's eye I can still see Reverend King and hear his words. The "March on Washington" began a long overdue process, one in which I was privileged to participate, to once and for all put an end to...

    There was a time when the church was very powerful. It was during that period when the early Christians rejoiced at being deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Whenever the early Christians entered a town, the people in power became disturbed and immediately sought to convict the Christians for being "disturbers of the peace" and "outside agitators"' But the Christians pressed on, in the conviction that they were "a...

    "To give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation [concentration camps] or sterilization", advocated the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger in April 1932 ("A Plan For Peace", Birth Control Review; see 'appendix' for this full unabridged seminal article). Which country pioneered forced sterilization in the 20th century, Germany or the United States of America? The German program began in January 1934, but the U.S. state of Indiana passed a forced sterilization law (for mental defectives) in 1907 (when Adolf Hitler was 18 years old).

  • Black History Month Should Be About Black History.

    02/01/2010 2:04:02 PM PST · by Lloyd Marcus · 46 replies · 701+ views ^ | 02-01-2010 | Lloyd Marcus
    I've often said jokingly that Black History Month should more accurately be called "white people and America suck" month. Rather than focusing on all of black history, every February the liberal media and most democrats gleefully bring up all of America's past sins. Fine. I mean after all, it is a part of history. But what is so wrong is these race exploiters imply that current race relations in America have not come very far from the days of blacks being lynched. Thus, Black History Month in reality is the liberal democrat's annual fund raiser and promo campaign for more...

    Dr. Martin Luther King "...did not want to be a saint or viewed as a saint. He was just a human being, capable of becoming and producing and leading his people out of the wilderness of segregation into the promised land..." (CSPAN Booknotes-Reverend Ralph David Abernathy 10/29/89) When his longtime friend and closest associate, Reverend Ralph Abernathy, wrote about the "human side" of King in his 1989 autobiography ("And The Walls Came Tumbling Down") a firestorm was set off. The King family and allies blasted Abernathy for several days in the mainstream media. There was no internet or talk radio...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized today for referring to President Barack Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect" in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign. "I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words," said Reid in a statement. "I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments." The Senate Majority Leader was officially neutral in the primary fight between Obama and then Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.). Reid's remarks about Obama were revealed in "Game Change", a book detailing the 2008 race penned by Time's Mark...

    Washington, DC ( -- The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is upset by the comments Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made about opponents of the pro-abortion Senate health care bill. Reid compared opposition to the bill, which funds abortions, to the 19th-century debate over slavery. Reid on Monday said Republicans opposed to the bill were displaying the same mindset as those who supported slavery.“If you think you've heard these same excuses before, you're right,” Reid said. “When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s...
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Was No "Conservative"

    As much as I hate to take issue with my colleagues here, it is hyperbolic to call Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a “conservative.” It is true King was no New Left radical. He had little use for Malcolm X and in his “Letter from the Birmingham Jail” he famously denounced “the hatred and despair of the black nationalist.” But King’s views before his antiwar speech were left-of-center, for his day or ours. King believed in a guaranteed annual income, opposed Vietnam well before 1967, and, “content of their character” notwithstanding, voiced support for some form of racial preferences....

  • We already have a National Day of Service – MLK Day

    I’ve been reading about the planned Sept. 11 National Day of Service. I certainly do not have an issue with service, but if my memory serves right – and it does today – we already have a national day of service… Martin Luther King Day. There has been a bit of a kerfuffle about Democrats selecting Sept. 11 as a national day of service. The event – with more at – been discussed over at Hot Air, Atlas Shrugs and Gateway Pundit, but I’m wondering what this development means for the Martin Luther King national day of volunteer service?

    Here is video of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece, Dr. Alveda C. King, who claims her uncle was a Republican, along with her father and grandfather. She says the issue of abortion - the rights of the "preborn" - is the issue that demands focus today in upholding the rights of all people. She does not say she believes her uncle would be a Republican today, but the implication is certainly there. The video is put out by the National Black Republican Association (NBRA). It sheds some light on the story we posted earlier about the controversy created by...

    A Lakeview Elementary parent is upset the audience of a school program on Martin Luther King Jr. was asked to stand for a song known as the black national anthem. Two teachers performed the song, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” — known to some as the “Black National Anthem” — as part of a 15-minute program during Black History Month. Russ Roberts, who has a first-grade daughter and fourth-grade son at Lakeview, said he was shocked when the audience was asked to stand for the song after it was identified as the “Black National Anthem.” He said he doesn’t object...

"We came to pay tribute to walk in the areas and steps of Mahatma Gandhi and my father but also to reacquire inspiration because our world needs a message of non-violence and peace," Luther added....

    On January 19th 2009, America celebrated the history of Martin Luther King Jr.. On January 20th, one day later, the people of this nation witnessed a man named Barack Obama become president. A nation’s voting majority and the media, became enablers to a man’s political aspirations and conduct which mocked the very words that were spoken by a black man with a dream. The dream of Martin Luther King Jr. was: 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...
