I share more than just a birthday with Dr. King, I share the same political beliefs and views. Something that has been lost and distorted by the media for many years.
The black community has been duped by Democrats. It was Democrats that fought to keep the black population enslaved. They were on the wrong side of the Civil War as a result. It was a Republican - Abraham Lincoln - that signed the Emancipation Proclamation. In the 20th century, it was Democrats that kept the black population from the polls, and fought to keep segregation alive and well. It was Democrats that filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And it was Democrats that came up with the "war on poverty" and welfare programs that have enslaved the black population once again, but this time to the state. Affirmative action programs that were created by Republicans and later signed via Presidential Executive Order were made to herald into the color-blind society, something that Democrats have turned on its head to the point that it now is used to discriminate by race.
Democrats have been instrumental in making sure especially inner-city black children are locked into failing public schools and indoctrinated into a victim mentality - a mentality that they use to convince them that it is evil Republicans that are the cause of all their problems. I see no one place that is a better example of the black population being institutionalized than right her in Detroit. I have written ad infinitum in this blog (see a sampling of post links at the bottom of this one) about how children in Detroit Public Schools are not only trapped in a district that hasn't functioned properly in my entire lifetime and then some, but are shackled as a result to poverty and government dependence, which is a feature rather than a bug of the system if you ask me. The worse off Detroit residents are, after all, the more apt they are to vote in Democrats into office - the same Democrats that have directly caused the problems that have been plaguing Detroit. In fact, Detroit's voting record indicates the most pro-Democrat record in the U.S:
2008 General Election results-DEM: 96.93% GOP: 2.65%
2006 General Election results-DEM: 95.05% GOP: 4.33%
2004 General Election results-DEM: 93.61% GOP: 5.93%
Note that every election cycle, it keeps inching closer to 100%. The worse things get, the more they vote in the very people of the very party that is responsible for their problems. Detroit Public Schools (DPS), just like the city, is under Democrat hegemonic domination and has been for 50 years now. In the recent NEAP test, DPS students scored the worst of any students in the nation by far, and not a single solitary student - not ONE! - placed as "advanced" in math. Those not dropping out have such bad scores on national standardized tests that Michael Casserly, executive director of the Council of the Great City Schools, had this to say:
"These numbers are only slightly better than what one would expect by chance as if the kids had never gone to school and simply guessed at the answers"
Detroit residents have been voting for their own doom and the doom of their children. The Stockholm Syndrome on a massive scale, perpetrated on purpose by Democrats. I have pointed this out many times before, but it's worth repeating yet again. One of my all-time favorite movies of all time is The Shawshank Redemption. In it, Morgan Freeman, aka "Red", coined the term when prisoners become dependent on the prison system and can no longer survive without it - institutionalized. One of the older prisoners, Brooks, was willing to kill to stay in the system as he knew nothing else after so many years. Yet they let him out and he promptly hung himself. He was institutionalized. The Democrats have institutionalizing the black population in this country, no different than slave masters did many decades ago. The same party that fought for slavery, not against it, segregated schools and filibustered the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 now has shackled the black population to another form of slavery - slavery to the state. Stripped naked of their dignity, their hope and their self-reliance.
It should thus come as no surprise to anyone that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican who was reviled with venomous hatred by Democrats, many of whom are still the model for Democrats today. Take for instance JFK, who voted against teh Civil Rights Act of 1957 as a Senator, and later his brother, the US AG, had this to say:
"I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes."
--Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961
Kennedy later authorized wiretapping the phones and bugging the hotel rooms of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Lastly, let me just bring up one more horrendous policy that the Democrats have foisted upon the black population: abortion. Under the guise, of course, of "choice." Abortion was shepherded by one Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, who wanted to eradicate the black population via the procedure. Here in Michigan, Planned Parenthood has strategically located their butcher shops in Detroit, Warren, Jackson, Lansing, East Lansing, Livonia, Ypsilanti, and are now eyeballing Pontiac. All of these locations are close to large minority populations.
Duped by Democrats, it is the black community that supports liberal politicians by overwhelming margins that install judicial activists on the courts and throw taxpayer money at orgs like Planned Parenthood that in turn go into minority neighborhoods to butcher as many as possible. Such is supported as the most fundamental right by those activist judges against the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence that for one lists "life" as the greatest of unalienable rights. Just remember the fact that abortion is far and away the #1 killer of blacks in the U.S. (more than all diseases - combined):
Martin Luther King, Jr's niece has this to say of abortion:
“The great irony is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of” - Dr. Alveda King, niece of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Did I mention the Ku Klux Klan was a Democrat invention as well? The only way I know to fight such insidious pursuits by the Democrats is education - to shine a light on who they have been and who they are. Thus, in addition to the above, please remember that MLK Jr. was a Republican, and he chose that party for a reason. That fact by itself can and should be a start.
