Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Dream Morphs Into A Nightmare

 Revealing Dr. King’s Dream Part 2

 

“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.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous, “I Have A Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963.

Nearly 50 years later, his words continue to reverberate through the halls of history. It would not take any stretch of the imagination to see how his words very would could be the most famous words spoken in modern American history.

Sadly, if the layers of current “reality” are peeled back, one could see that Dr. King’s words have been used and manipulated to do the exact opposite of what his dream was back then.

The question must be asked:

Has Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream turned into a nightmare for the very people he stood up for, and in fact, gave his very life for?

If one truly believes the words that Dr. King dreamed of, you have to look beyond the political manipulation that has allowed his dream to become a nightmare.

The funny thing about truth- it is or it is not. There is not middle ground. One must accept that something is or it is not, otherwise, you are left with nothing but hot air. Unfortunately, so much of what is spoken and written today and delivered as “facts”- the truth– is not truth at all.

The Dream has morphed into something that is not recognizable at this current time in history. It is no longer about the dream of a father, who longs for his children to live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.

We now live in a society where the norm is self above all else. This attitude is not contained to one race, creed, religion, gender or any other label, class or group of people we have been “divided” into by bureaucracy and political correctness.

To get to the truth- the real truth– one must get down to the very basics. Start at the very beginning, by asking themselves:

Do I- me, personally, desire to live in a nation where I- me, personally, will not be judged by the color of my skin, but the content of my character?

Once the answer to this question is determined, then, and only then, can one move beyond themselves, and ask the next vital question:

Do I- me, personally, desire to live in a nation where my children, my grandchildren, my parents, my siblings, and my friends, will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character?

Once the answer to this question is determined, then one can move on to the next step, and ask themselves:

Do I- me, personally, desire to live in a nation where every single individual that breathes air into their lungs, will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character?

Depending on how each individual person answers these three questions determines whether or not they truly believe in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream. If the answer- truthfully, without allowing the media, politicians, political correctness, agendas or any other outside influence to answer for the individual is yes to all three of the above questions, the final question one can truthfully say that yes, they truly believe in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream.

If the answer to any of the previous three questions is no, then the individual cannot say they believe in the same dream as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Truth is truth. It cannot be spun for a political agenda. It is either truth, or it is not.

Do you personally believe in the same dream as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?
Or do you allow outside influences to tell you what he “really intended” in his dream?

Racism In America

August 28, 1963 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech to a massive crowd of two hundred thousand plus people. The crowd was made up of many different races of people, not just black, not just white. On that day, people gathered and united for a common good. Even though race relations could have exploded into violence and unrest many people of our nation united to solve a long standing problem.

“I have a dream that my four little 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.”

These immortal words were a driving force behind actions taken to correct the injustices that were so prevalent in those days.

My question for you is this: have the words and dreams of Dr. King been twisted and perverted?

Rep. Allen West has been in the news a great deal. Rep. West has stated that he has been called such things as “Uncle Tom” and “sellout” for standing up for what he believes. Rep. West received numerous decorations in his military career before he retired in 2004, but it appears that his biggest battle might have just begun. Those on the left seem to have set their sights on Rep. West, especially fellow Floridian Rep. Wasserman-Schultz.

Recently I came across an article by Lloyd Marcus entitled “The Black Code”. Mr. Marcus answered some questions I have had for several years and even gave some new questions and thoughts to ponder. I understand that like people tend to group together whether it is on the basis of religion, culture or even race. What Mr. Marcus opened my eyes to is the existence of the “codes” that exist among many groups- be it blacks, whites, liberal or conservative to name a few. Some people live their lives by such a code while others don’t. Mr. Marcus described some of the repercussions of not adhering to the “Black Code”.

“Consequences for violating The Black Code are severe. I boldly proclaim myself to be an unhyphenated American rather than the politically correct term, “African-American”. It never occurred to me my statement would be seen as a violation of The Black Code.”

Mr. Marcus explained how the code played into the election of Obama when he ran for president.

“The emergence of Obama as America’s first black presidential candidate automatically activated The Black Code in the hearts and minds of most black Americans.

Obama’s socialistic ideas, anti-America associations and friends were irrelevant. Once again, I found myself odd man out with family and black friends.”

This is when I asked myself a couple of questions; isn’t it just as racist to vote for a person because of their skin color as it is to not to vote for them for their skin color? Doesn’t this kind of thinking contradict Dr. King’s teachings?

 “But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”   – Dr. King

 

“Al Sharpton and the usual suspects along with their sycophant clueless puppy dog white liberal media exploit The Black Code at every opportunity.”-Lloyd Marcus

Over the years, people such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have successfully manipulated many Americans for nothing more than their personal gain while others have used the “race card” to push their liberal agenda.

When Rep. Allen West sent his email to Rep. Wasserman-Schultz in response to her attack on him, the head of The National Black Caucus stated that he was “furious” with Rep. West. Where is this “Black Code”? Does Rep. West not qualify for inclusion in the loyalty the “code” dictates? Am I to understand that the “code” does not apply to black gentlemen (or ladies) that hold conservative values?

“Exploitation of The Black Code is the left’s strategy to defeat the tea party and get out the black vote in 2012. Their think tank went something like this:

“I got it!

Let’s call the tea party racist.

We’ll accuse them of opposing Obama’s race rather than his agenda to fundamentally transform America. Instinctively, blacks will flock to the polls in defense of their brother against those white tea party rednecks.”- Lloyd Marcus

The Tea Party racist? Was it not the Tea Party that was the driving force behind the election of Rep. West?

The left’s tactics push people of all races to look at candidates based on anything but their content of character.  They will play the “race card” at every chance and lie about candidates to distract the American people from what really matters. They do not want the U.S. Constitution to remain. They want to turn this great nation into their personal socialist playground.

I commend and admire people like Rep. West and Lloyd Marcus for standing up to the pressures of the politically correct in defense of our great nation. We should all hold people of their caliber as true patriots. We need more people like them no matter what color their skin is.

I hope that all that read this will read Mr. Marcus’ article also and above all else, do what Dr. King dreamed about, judge (especially your candidates) by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
