Kellyanne Conway Says MLK Would Oppose Trump Impeachment
What say you, Dems?
I saw about a DOZEN serious abuses of a dead corpse on Monday with desperate politicians channeling MLK in his afterlife... I think he probably just shuts off the noise every MLK day and wishes for some BBQ from Memphis...
It's gross and disgusting.. When EITHER party does it...
Uncle Ferd got the hots...
... fer KelleyAnne!
Either party doesn't do it. There is one party who is correct about Dr. King, then we have the republicans. It's real simple, had you been alive and paid attention to King, you know he was no conservative and you know he would oppose trump. The fact he was calling on government to do what's right eliminates any claim of conservatism.
And you don't watch the right kind of "news"
Dems had MLK weighing in on the impeachment.. They had him crusading for CC/GW... It was just as disgusting when Kellyanne does it...
You have no proof that he would oppose Trump... After all, he did suck up to LBJ didn't he???
Unlike you, I watch the truth. Dems were right. The imaginary King those like you created is not Dr. King. The real Dr. King would have opposed trump. And your lack of knowledge about King has you saying he sucked up to LBJ instead of he made demands that LBJ was forced to deal with.
Just do us all a favor and keep Dr. Kings name out your mouth until you really learn about him.
Of course what MLK would think of the Trump circus today is only speculation, but if he were still living, at 90+ years of age, my guess would be that he would not concern himself so much with Trumps business and the non partisan, self serving circus that American politics have become, and focus more on encouraging the succesful segment of the black population to work together with the less fortunate segment of the black population to rebuild predominately black communities through a system of self reliance and self help, much like the NOI has advocated for many generations, and you see the same approach in predominantly Asian communities. They take care of themselves.
First and foremost.
I would hope that he would look back and recognize that along with his work to obtain the basic rights of citizenship, that he should have done more to encourage economic growth based more on community redevelopment from within, than seeking a utopian society where we all reach across the aisles to join hands.
To be fair, of course, that was part of a strategy to put white America at ease, but he would have evolved to a different place over time.
But truthfully that did very little to build economic wealth in predominantly black communities. In fact, it hurt more than it helped, IMO.
When segregation ended, black citizens abandoned black owned businesses en masse, for the right to sit next to their previous oppressors.
That is the equivalent of rewarding someone for treating you poorly, and biting the hand that has fed you.
My own father knew MLK and admired him as well as marched with him, and even brought him to our home to visit prior to his being murdered, but I also recall him saying to me as a kid:
"We live in a capitalistic society, and if he does not integrate building wealth, ON OUR OWN into his message, we will have marched for nothing"
If he had lived, I do think he would have helped create the economic development you say is needed today. It stands to reason that many things would be different and it may have been King instead of Obama who would have been the first black president in 1972 and would have served 2 terms and Reagan very well may not have been able to rise into prominence which means this current type of "conservatism" probably would not have taken hold. That would mean we'd not be talking about a president trump.
But looking at what actually happened, he probably would have done better to adopt Malcolm X's economic nationalism. Your opinion is correct in this regard.
Before he was murdered, as you know he was becoming more of a voice for the lower economic class in society, which frightened the wrong people. That's why J Edgar ""Crossdresser" deemed him to be so dangerous. If he had survived, it is indeed possible that he could have been a force in politics based on the way that the decade of the 60"s ended.
MLK Negro was a Socialist so he would have hated Trump. Like all the dumbass Democrat Negros he would have been suffering from TDS.
