Dr King would be ashamed of Obama and his crew of black-marginalizing socialists keeping the races apart to solidify his voting base.
From Obama's book: "the mixed blood, the divided soul, the ghostly image of the tragic mulatto trapped between two worlds."
Really? Cry me a river about your dreams that didn't happen. Oh wait, they did.
Enjoy eating lobster while the race you claim to fight for is too poor to eat macaroni and cheese.
The Emporer has no clothes and one day, people better wake up and stop Obama's dictatorial government control.

ZING. We all know he was gonna speak. Rumor has it he is gonna talk about the economy too? Maybe he can read a chapter out of Alinsky's book? The first million attendees get a free brown shirt.

In related news, I will be writing an article about a speech I plan to give about a thread I saw on GT about an article written about a speech President Obama will be giving about a speech MLK gave.

I'm impressed. Most people don't know that. MLK also plagiarized major portions of his doctoral thesis and other academic papers.

From the January 1965 "Playboy" interview with MLK -

Playboy:

Along with the other civil rights leaders, you have often proposed a massive program of economic aid, financed by the Federal Government, to improve the lot of the nation’s 20,000,000 million Negroes. Just one of the projects you’ve mentioned… is expected to cost $141,000,000 over the next ten years, and that includes only Harlem. A nationwide program such as you propose would undoubtedly run into the billions.

King:

About 50 billion, actually – which is less than one year of our present defense spending. It is my belief that with the expenditure of this amount over a ten-year period, a genuine and dramatic transformation could be achieved in the conditions of Negro life in America. I am positive, moreover, that the money spend would be more than amply justified by the benefits that would accrue to the nation through a spectacular decline in school dropouts, family breakups, crime rates, illegitimacy, swollen relief rolls, rioting and other social evils.


Playboy:

If a nationwide program of preferential employment for Negroes were to be adopted, how would you propose to assuage the resentment of whites who already feel that their jobs are being jeopardized by the influx of Negroes resulting from desegregation?

King:

We must develop a Federal program of public works, retraining and jobs for all – so that none, white or black, will have cause to feel threatened… together, they could exert massive pressure on the Government to get jobs for all. Together, they could form a grand alliance. Together, they could merge all people for the good of all.


Sure sounds like Affirmative Action and Welfare/EBT/Food stamps, etc to me....


"Until that defeat, Goldwater was the most dangerous man in America. He talked soft and nice, but he gave aid and comfort to the most vicious racists and the most extreme rightists in America. He gave respectability to views totally alien to the democratic process. Had he won, he would have led us down a fantastic path that would have totally destroyed America as we know it.” - "Republican" MLK, Jr

MLK - Race bating loser
Obama - Race bating loser

It's a shame that people who actually did fight for equality like Frederick Douglass are often forgotten.

These people had Dreams.. I can't imagine what pithy dream Obama may have..


Fifty years ago on this day, President John Kennedy sat
nervously in the Oval Office. The March on Washington for
Jobs and Freedom had brought a crowd of a quarter million
Americans to the Mall and no one had any experience with a
crowd that size remaining peaceful. At the podium in front of
the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr gave the last
speech. As he drew to its close he set aside his text and ad-libbed:

"I have a dream that my four children will, one day,
live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color
of their skin but by the content of their character."
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ ______________


Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know
what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new
love, or a new country.
- Anais Nin, 1903 - 1977

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also
dream; not only plan, but also believe.
- Anatole France, 1844 - 1924

You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that
never were; and I say, "Why not?"
- George Bernard Shaw, 1856 - 1950

I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one
advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and
endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with
a success unexpected in common hours.
- Henry David Thoreau, 1817 - 1862

Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the
hearts of men.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749 - 1832

If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to
dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time.
- Marcel Proust, 1871 - 1922

Dreams are real while they last. Can we say more of life? - Havelock Ellis, 1853 - 1939
