In regards to Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy, why isn't this major figure never mentioned by the left? The political pimping of the late Dr. Martin Luther King continued yesterday by the intolerant ideologs of the left. It never ceases to amaze me how absolute shallow and phony liberals are when it comes to the issue of race and class in America. It has already been established long ago that most liberals can’t even begin to embrace the ideological diversity by different races. In other words, liberals have a hard time accepting people of different races that don’t adhere to their way of thinking. I can bear witness to that personally. Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Seeing that there are blacks in the United States that have been stuck in a 40 year time warp, that day might as well have been like any other day. Blacks who aren’t blinded by self-imposed shackles realize that the era of the 1960’s is nothing like the certain era we live in today. While people in our country continuously evolve and move forward, they see this country for what it really is. They see America as country in which they can achieve anything if they put their minds too it, also they realize the only factor that can possibly hold them back is indeed themselves.. It’s like the old saying, when you associate with negative minded people, you will develop negative thinking. It’s really that simple. Back to the pimping of Dr. King, The Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain was criticized and booed by some blacks, because he didn’t vote in favor of making Dr. Martin Luther King a national holiday. Of course they never deemed it necessary to ask him why. Actually John McCain didn't have to say anything on the anniversity of Dr. King's death, but he would have been criticzed for not saying anything as well. So he was dammed for speaking out and would have been dammed if he didn't speak out. This is what I mean by the political pimping of Dr. King by liberals. I find it amazing that these self-righteous hypocrites even have the ordasity to speak. Every chance liberals get they makes sure to promote the fact that Lyndon Johnson signed into law the 1964 civil rights act, but they always leave out the fact that if it wasn’t for a Republican Senator from Illinois by the name of Everett Dirksen, the bill would have never made it to Johnson’s desk in the first place. As for the creation of the Dr. King Holiday, they failed to mention two important details about the King Bill. The first detail that liberals can never bring themselves to mention is that the late Strom Thurmond voted in support of the King Holiday
. Notice I said SUPPORT and not against. Liberals have been trying to pass off revisionist history about Thurmond since he became a Republican many decades ago. The second detail that liberals can’t bring themselves to admit is that the late Ronald Wilson Reagan was the President who signed into law making Dr. Martin Luther King a National Holiday
. Since I broke open the flood gates of history that the left can’t come to grips to mention, I figure why not one more little detail from the history archives. For all of Dr, King’s hard work, there was one Democrat who was silent on the 40th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination. That Democrat is a Senator from the state of West Virginia. His name is Robert Byrd. This is the same Robert Byrd just a few years ago used the N word on the Fox News Hannity and Colmes show. So some of you mainly liberals may be asking what does Robert Byrd have to do with Dr. King. During the height of the Civil Right’s movement Senator Robert Byrd referred to Dr. King as a “Negro Troublemaker”. To this date I don’t recall Byrd ever issuing an apology for his remark. The great thing about history is that it’s all out there for anyone to discover. Many Democrats I’m sure wish it was buried instead.
