Martin Luther King is turning in his Grave

January 15, 2007

Today is another day celebrating his life and his beliefs, but the people who profess to believe in his dream have completely corrupted his vision since his death. Mister King did not have a vision where people relied on the government to provide a living or to solve all problems, Mister King had a vision of self reliance and little reliance on the government, but the NAACP have taken his vision and and have made people unable to think on their own and to look to the government to make life and death decision for them.

Mister King had a vision of where the Federal Government saw to that everybody has the same rights when dealing with the Government starting at the closest level city, then county, state and then the Federal Government. Mister King knew that private businesses would make the change on their own if they wanted to survive because money knows no color boundaries, and when it comes to staying in business, green is one color that is is acceptable to all people.

Why is it that the few who see them as being the chosen to speak for everybody else also get to redefine what Mister King stood for now than what he really stood for. No where in Mister King’s life did he champion the government making decisions for people but we now have self appointed persons saying what Mister Kings true message is which is a complete Bastardization of Martin Luther Kings true Vision which is now celebrated as Government deciding for people, dictating who has more rights than others, intrusion into private busness’s rights.

Martin Luther King had a dream where everybody was judged on their content not on their skin color which is how it is done now. the following is a copy of Martin Luther Kings Speach in its entirety courtesy of U.S. congress Library, his speech was about Governmental discrimination and abuses by the Democrats back then and it holds stil true today because most democrats just give lip service to civil rights.

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we have come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.

As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied, as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We can never be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.

Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.

I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

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.

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 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.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, “My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.”

And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado!

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!

But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

The following names give lip service to civil rights and fail to hire the best qualified applicant but rather emplyee the use of cronyism.

Nancy Pelosi, Henry waxman, Rep. Rangel, Al Gore, Senator Edwards, Hiliary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Barney Frank the list is endless but no where will you hear them that they will hire the best qualified applicant, its time to hold these elected officials to truly embrace all of the Civil Rights passed back in 1960’s even though it was the Democratic party that literally filibustered the Civil Rights Bill in the 1960’s why does the NAACP even stand by the Democratic party when it was the Democratic party that tried to prevent civil rights from becoming law.

Why won’t the media in general comment on the Democrats true beliefs on civil rights, its time to see the democrats for what they truly are Rascists still to this day.

  1. Very true. I believe that, in addition, people take their rights for granted, and often forget that they would still be slaves or worse if not for revolutionaries like Martin Luther King.


  2. Wow, very well said.


  3. No doubt about it, the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King definitely would’ve voted for GW Bush


  4. No other public holiday in the United States honors a single individual. Of all the great leaders in our Nation’s history – none of them have their own holiday. All of our great war heroes share Memorial Day. All of our great presidents share President’s Day. Yet King – a man who was a phony, a cheater, a traitor, and a sexual degenerate – gets a day of his own. I have a big problem with that.

    He forgot to add in he was also a trained communist.


  5. Are you guys nuts or joking? King was the opposite of a libertarian capitalist or a right-winger – he was an incredible social justice activist. He gave a speech entitled “Beyond Vietnam” just one year before he was assassinated. You can read the whole thing here, but Wikipedia has a good summary of King’s evolving political philosophy here. He advocated an immediate end to war, a redistribution of resources and wealth, going so far as to endorse “democratic socialism.” He described our war on Vietnam as imperialist, and he would likely do the same with Iraq today. Don’t distort history you jerks.


  6. If you really want to make a change, try to make your dreams reality. Because what you say here are not just dreams, are thoughts, are ideas that you believe in, which you think will make a better world.

    It is great that someone stood up to say things that all should hear. Maybe more should do the same…
