Wednesday Short Cuts

MLK wisely remarked, “We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flout the central teachings of Jesus.”

Insight: “We cannot have an enlightened democracy with one great group living in ignorance… We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flout the central teachings of Jesus: brotherly love and the Golden Rule.” —Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

Observations: “Last November, when 150 — 150 — ‘alt-Right’ Nazi types attended a conference in DC, the media sent 150 people to cover them. The event, which had been going on for years without much notice, received coverage from nearly every major outlet. … Coverage not only skews our understanding of the alt-right’s size, it empowers them. … So the media will keep giving racists outsized coverage.” —David Harsanyi

For the record: “Other groups [opposing the alt-right faction] began amassing along the street and in the park. Gradually, the crowd sizes increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of attendees toward one another. … We did have mutually combating individuals in the crowd.” —Charlottesville police chief Al Thomas

Race bait: “[America] is not the land of the free and the home of the brave, where opportunity and prosperity are available to all.” —Rep. Cedric Richmond, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus (The chairman of the Congressional WHITE Caucus was not available for comment.)

“Hate speech, which is what we’re seeing coming out of white nationalist groups, is not protected under the First Amendment rights.” —Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors

And last… “The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a statement demanding that ‘every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery’ be removed or have its name changed. That’s an interesting position for CAIR to take since it would require that every mosque in America be shut down. Mosques are dedicated to the teachings of Muhammad and Muhammad owned slaves. … Also joining the fray is Planned Parenthood, which tweeted, ‘#StandWithCharlottesville against racism & hate in your community.’ This is coming from an organization founded by Margaret Sanger, who was a disgusting eugenicist. Her purpose in founding Planned Parenthood was to weed out ‘less desirable’ populations.” —Gary Bauer
