How “I Have A Dream” Got Lost In Political Correctness and Corruption
Martin Luther King Jr., his call with his “I have a dream” speech, where he said he looked to a day where “we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” Sadly this has gotten lost with the new leadership.
Instead, we have what he fought against coming back in reverse. He warned people not to look at racist ideals to find freedom, avoid violence, yet this is exactly what is happening today.
With the “White Studies,” “White Privilege” nonsense, we see, as we saw in the 1800s, the justification for racist actions against a people. In the US, some books and pamphlets were taught due to their skin color; blacks were inferior to whites, thus enslaving or treating them as cattle, one that could be purchased, held as the property was acceptable, they were less than human. However, they did share many of the same characteristics.
We fought a civil war in this nation, the only nation in the world where brother fought brother over ending the ideals of slavery.
In the early 1900s, people saw themselves as more dignified than this. People like Margaret Sanger came around, taught her ideas of eugenics; they did not want to enslave any longer, did not want to put up with “undesirables,” so she set up the abortion industry, said that forced sterilization was the way to take care of the Brown, Black, and Jewish problem.
Hitler ran with this idea but did not have the patience to see this through. He wanted the undesirables gone now, so he took her teachings, even wrote of them, added the Democrat Jim Crow southern laws, then set about after stripping his undesirables (Jews, Slav’s, and Gypsies) of their rights and their property, move to then end their lives, neatly disposing of them in death factories known as concentration camps.
In the 1950s and 60s, people like MLK came about; they taught that all were created equal, equality was something to be sought after, we were to live as one community with all sharing the same freedoms, but is this what this same movement is trying to do today?
We are told we owe reparations, but to whom? No one alive today, nor their parents or even grandparents were slaves. The Whites that are told they should pay into this for the sins of the past, none of them held slaves, neither did their parents or grandparents, so why should they pay? Our nation is built on laws where children are not held accountable for their parents’ crimes, surely not their great grandparents, yet this is what is being sought; this is not justice. No one seeking this money has suffered from slavery.
In the end, rather then equality we have schools setting back up segregation, history is being erased, whites are being punished.
Sorry MLK, while your intent was great, your character was above most, your ideals have been corrupted until one questions if you would start to march again if you were here to free us from this tyranny.
