A few days ago on the 4th of April, civil rights leader and minister Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated standing on the balcony of the hotel he stayed in in Memphis Tennessee 51 years ago. His assassin was James Earl Ray, a prison escapee and career criminal. He died in prison on April 23, 1998. King arrived the day before to march on behalf of the striking sanitation workers.
Dr. King’s legacy has always been centered around abolishing racism and classism. Despite claims by the uninformed, he did not fight for “colorblindness”. He was aware of the issues the nation faced and worked to improve conditions for people struggling with race and class adversities.
Some would say King was trying to get people together in racial harmony, and that he would be greatly disappointed if he saw race relations today. However, some would say almost the same thing, but would detest those who constantly bring racism up as doing so will – in their minds – divide this country.
One such person is Fox News’ own “expert” on race relations Laura Ingraham. As someone on the right, attacking the left, especially Democrats, is the thing to always do, particularly when defending her messiah Donald Trump:
What message do these folks offer America’s voters? I’ll tell you what they offer.
Resentment, anger, division, and alienation. And these Democrats don’t even acknowledge obvious gains, but you know why they won’t? Because to do so would affirm that Trump’s policies are working. Can’t have that.
Democrats aren’t angels or even totally trustworthy. That’s a given. But the way the right operates, everything – including what the right does that causes more problems for society – is their fault and the fault of the left in general. What happened to “personal responsibility”?
Watching and listening to this Democrat field kowtow to Al Sharpton makes it seem like America didn’t even elect, and then re-elect it’s first black president.
But for the hardcore racial rabble-rousers, Obama’s victories, remember, they were just baby steps. What they want now is full-on income confiscation meant to enforce equal outcomes, if not equal opportunity.
What is it with racist conservatives and their obsession with bring up Al Shaprton, and in most cases Jesse Jackson, as being the black community’s only leaders?
Today is the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. I was thinking, like, if he were alive today I wonder what he’d think about such dismissive comments. And about a Democrat Party that believes it can regain power by living in a constant state of protest, or racial hatred, and denial.
Since Ingraham’s a white conservative, I’m guessing her idea of racial hatred is when people speak up and fight against racism that benefits white people. To her and many on the right, whites are the new blacks.
Keep in mind that this woman agreed with paleoconservaive and racist fossil Pat Buchanan that there were 600,000 slaves that were brought here and that 620.000 died in the Civil War. So, there’s no need for reparations for African Americans. She also coined the term “white-aphobia” and claims that talking about it is wrong and a way to “shut conservatives up”. She was also thinking, like, abortion to the Holocaust, criticized Rep. Alexandria Oscasio-Cortez about her “minority privilege”, and cried how political correctness will lead to “demographic suicide and cultural suicide”.
And that’s just a tip of the big, white iceburg.
Laura Ingraham’s racism is obvious, unless you’re a far-right conservative and the only kind of racism that concerns you is reverse racism against whites. And if MLK were alive today, even he would say, “This woman’s crazy!”
