A compelling and jaw-dropping piece of news. Long, long, long time in coming.
Here are a couple of important passages that will give you the impression that the real revolution — the one with continuity back to the other real revolution — that one in 1776 in America — is finally giving signs that it could be coming back.
Long thought dead, or at least comatose, buried under a tsunami of whining and sniveling and gimme, gimme selfishness, the real revolution of the people is the one that begins to dismantle governments, not build them up. A real revolution, one worthy of the name, de-centralizes power, influence, money and … freedom.
Is it possible that Alveda King is a harbinger of that authentic revolution? It’s entirely possible.
Lost to history is the likelihood that Martin Luther King, Jr. would have developed into one of the great Conservative leaders of American History. It’s a sure thing that King’s message of assimilation and of the brotherhood of all mankind was hijacked, stolen, by the left.
Martin Luther King, Jr. demanded freedom; his successors demanded free stuff. King demanded equality and respect. He was the equal of any man, and he was worthy, so worthy of respect. His successors were and are small, petty, racist, overstuffed wretches, thoroughly imprisoned in a pinched, crabbed vision of life and of America that reflects nothing like reality… but that has made them rich.
One listens to the speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr. and after wiping the tears, realizes that he was one of us. An American in full. A man in full. A visionary truly questing after freedom, who would have crawled through the desert on hands and knees to obtain that freedom for his children… and for you and me.
It seems that some of that courageous blood courses through the blood of Alveda King as well.
Here are some passages from this extremely important piece:
There is a “moral bankruptcy” that’s settled into leadership of America in the White House and throughout Washington, D.C., Dr. Alveda King—the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.—said in an interview Friday morning.
“All of our leaders—or many of our leaders—are just morally bankrupt right now,” King said when asked if President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have helped or hurt the black community in America. “They’re not calling on God. We still stay ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘One Nation Under God’ but we’re not practicing that. We need to call on God. There’s a moral bankruptcy in this country and we really need to come back to God.”
I love that Dr. King (Alveda) is saying this, but it would be good if all people would join her. We white folks are afraid, let’s face it, to say that plainspoken truth. We know we’d be called racists. Still, it is the country at stake here.
Here’s some more:
Dr. King is part of an effort that will be announced publicly early next week by various conservative black, Hispanic and Tea Party leaders to reach out to the black community and get them engaged in an effort to help urban centers reject big government in favor of smaller, limited government. The project, called “Restore The Dream 2014,” includes other black leaders like TheTeaParty.net’s Niger Innis, FreedomWorks’ the Rev. C.L. Bryant, radio host Wayne Dupree, Conservative Campaign Committee chairman Lloyd Marcus, Conservative Review president Deneen Borelli, columnist Star Parker, former U.N. Commission on Civil Rights ambassador Ken Blackwell, and others.
In an interview, Innis—whose father Roy Innis has led the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), one of the major organizations behind the Civil Rights movement, since 1968—said that progressive and big government policies have created a “welfare state that has largely not only destroyed the black and increasingly so Latino—and American family generally—they have killed the types of incentives that had led people to achieve and build a better life for themselves.”
“You can have opportunity right in front of your door but you’re terrified to open it because you’re a victim,” Innis said. “So those two realities that you have now since a leviathan of the federal government that is trying to fashion itself as a cradle-to-grave big daddy government—going to take care of you from cradle to grave and give you all sorts of disincentives to climbing that economic ladder, and by the way if you do climb that economic ladder they’re going to punish you punitively with taxes that are going to undermine you.”
“If you dare want to open up a business, they’re going to cripple you with regulations and taxes and they’re going to make it easier for you to be a rational human being and just get government benefits rather than being a liberated individual who can climb that economic ladder,” he continued. “So you have that real but not concrete phenomenon of big government mentality crippling you and then you have on a parallel track victimization syndrome overriding it that says—you pick the minority—‘you are a victim and you are the underdog so you can never achieve.’ That is a dangerous recipe and it is a recipe that has dominated urban centers for more than 50 years and what we’re trying to do is liberate them.” [Editor's Note: emphasis added]
Wow, wow, wow! Can you even fathom the courage it takes for these black men and women to say these things?
King said that economic indicators show that during Obama’s presidency, things have gotten dramatically worse for black Americans.
“The data is going to indicate black people lost out in every single leading economic category during the Obama years,” King told Breitbart News, noting that liberal commentator Tavis Smiley agrees with her and that they’re not trying to “demonize” or “cast aspersions” on Obama, but the truth needs to be told. “That’s terrible. There’s nothing that’s been done to enhance our lives but there’s all sorts of things that were done to [give us stuff] like free access to abortion, free birth control in a healthcare clinic. But that’s nothing that’s going to help us economically, intellectually, physically health-wise and otherwise—there’s nothing being done for us. Black home ownership is 31 percent less than the rest of the country. Poverty rates have increased from 12 percent to 16.1 percent. Income for blacks is $20,000 less than the national average. Thirty-five percent of young blacks are out of work.”
That’s just the beginning of the black community’s woes under Obama, she said. Education, immigration, and health concerns are abound too.
“I’m not so locked into a political party—Republican, Democrat, independent—it doesn’t matter to me what your party affiliation happens to be,” King said. “We just need to vote and have common sense and good morals when we elect our people. We need hope. We need for the lights to come back on. We need to shine the light of the Lord and the love of the Lord back onto the country. We need a restoration, and that’s how we can restore the dream.” [Editor's Note: Emphasis added]
Republicans: you had better heed these voices. They’re powerful. And they will sweep the country if you help them. It’s a sure thing the Democrat Party will do everything they can to stop them. If, however, Republicans give constant, unflagging, steadfast support to them, nothing can stand before them. Nothing can stop them. Theirs is a voice of genuine hope. Educated, informed, honest, real, authentic, clear-eyed, unblinkered hope. Hope that would give way, as real hope must, to success, prosperity, to real, genuine participation in the greatest socio-political idea that history has ever seen: America.
