Martin Luther King Jr.

Democrats have made the dream a nightmare.

“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 my four 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. … And if America is to be a great nation this must become true.” —Martin Luther King Jr.

Of course, today’s Democratic Party has turned the wisdom of this iconic sovereign inside out, as if King had said, “I have a dream that my children will one day be judged by the color of their skin, not the content of their character.” They’ve turned it from a dream into a nightmare.

King’s 1963 address from the Lincoln Memorial was his most famous, but you have likely never read King’s 1966 assessment of racial violence in Obama’s hometown of Chicago: “This is the most tragic picture of man’s inhumanity to man. I’ve been to Mississippi and Alabama and I can tell you that the hatred and hostility in Chicago are really deeper than in Alabama and Mississippi.” King added, “Those who are associated with ‘Black Power’ and black supremacy are wrong.”

So you thought racism was just a “deep south problem”? That is what the Democrats and their Leftmedia sycophants would have you believe.

“Black supremacy” is precisely what was drilled into Barack Obama’s psyche by his Marxist mentor Frank Marshall Davis and his religious mentor Jeremiah Wright.

Two years ago, Obama dismissed his low approval ratings as being due to racism: “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.” Yes, Obama used the anniversary of King’s birth to establish that his true legacy is being a half-black president who is nothing more than a race-bait political hustler.

Regardless of one’s conclusion about King’s proper place in history (given the historical account of his sometimes-lacking personal integrity and character), his letter from a Birmingham jail is well worth reading.
