I have a dream as a black male conservative living in America.
This might raise a few eyebrows. Today marks the 43rd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's famous I have a dream speech.
When Barry Obama was elected, I saw blacks wearing shirt with Dr. King and Barry on it entitled "a dream realized". In many ways, the dream has not been realized. The portion of what Dr. King said that most people memorize is the part where is said "I have a dream that one day a man will not be judged by the color of his skin but by the content of his character". It appears that the people who claim to support Dr. King don't really adhere or understand very well what he was saying. When white and black liberal minded people refer to people who are of different races who are not white and are self professed conservatives as being "sellouts, uncle toms, house niggers, house negros, simple sambos, serving massa etc, who's doing the judging based on the color of a person's skin? I grew up being taught the myth that the Republican Party is full of racists, and the Democratic Party was the party that was "looking out for my best interest". It was something that was repeated to me, but I never really subscribed to it. I started to see things how they really were so to speak when I saw Democrats calling Clarence Thomas call kinds of vile and demeaning names just because he is black and have a different point of view on matters. I asked this question before. Have any of you ever heard a white liberal Democrat refer to another white person as a "token", "house cacusain" or "sellout", because that particular white person doesn't support or belong the Democratic Party? You know the answer, so I won't answer it. Dr. King's speech was about establishing a color blind society, yet look who seems to always make every issue about race in America. Conservatives have been made out to be the racial antagonists by the left, but the claims never seem to stick due to the lack of evidence. With the election of Barack Hussein Obama, America was suppose to have started a new post racial chapter. The ink is still clogged in the pen, and the first word has yet to be written. The same people on the left who claim to support King's words are the same people who constantly use the issue of race as a weapon in order to silence people oppose to their way of thinking. How many times have the Tea Party movement been branded a bunch of racists with no proof the validate the label? When Jeane Garafalo claimed on Keith Olberman's show that Michael Steele suffers from Stockholm Syndrome. I'm sure Jeane would say she supports the words of Dr. King too.
I wondered would she ever said that about a white person. She judged Steele by the color of his skin as do most leftists when it come down to non whites who are conservative in nature. I couldn't help not to burst out laughing yesterday, when I saw a news segment on the CBS Nightly News talking about Glen Becks's Restore America rally at the Lincoln Memorial scheduled for today. They interviewed Al Sharpton for some unknown reason to get his thoughts. I really don't remember much of what he said, he's pretty much irrelevant to mainstream America accept for liberals in the media who continue to prop him up as somehow being worth anything. He of all people had the gull and audacity to say that " Glen Beck's Rally went against Dr. King's Dream". This race hustling poverty pimp has done more to divide this country along the lines of race then anyone I can think of in modern history. Anyways Becks's rally is on the 43th anniversary of Dr. King's speech. I guess the attention to Beck's rally and the fake outrage by the left is because it was being held at the Lincoln Memorial on the 43th anniversary. Contrary to the beliefs of those on the left, they really don't have a say on what day a rally can be held. They aren't the go to people in regards to anything related to Dr. Martin Luther King. The people that have more of a right to mention the words of Dr. King are the people who share the envision of a truly United States where we are all Americans not hyphenated Americans as the political correct crowd wants to classify us as. Americans of all races coming together and chanting U.S.A is the true dream worth pursing.
