Know Them According to Their Actions


Glenn Beck held his rally to restore honor and to celebrate the troops who sacrifice so much for us. Google honored that ambition by publishing deceptive maps on its site which directed you to FDR’s monument. Al Sharpton, who apparently did not have a black woman who was falsely accusing another of rape to support, said that Beck was stealing Martin Luther King’s legacy because Beck dared to hold his rally on the same day and at the same location where Dr. King delivered his famous “I have a dream” speech. Others on the left have even attacked Dr. Alveda King, Martin Luther King’s niece, by accusing her of trashing her uncle’s legacy. Want more? How about this as reported by Fox News on their website, “Eleanor Holmes Norton, Washington's delegate to Congress, said she remembers being at King's march on Washington, which she said prompted change and ended segregation in public places.”Glenn Beck's march will change nothing. But you can't blame Glenn Beck for his March-on-Washington envy." When the left spews vitriol in quantity, one can be assured that the people of America have awakened and is aware of their deeds.

I assert that the left has no understanding of Dr. King’s dream and even less understanding of the man himself. Dr. King saw a world where nobody was judged for their outward appearance. In his eyes, we were all equal. Only our actions and our character mattered and I submit that the actions and the lack of character demonstrated by the left gives enough information to render an accurate judgment as to their motives. Yet these craven individuals fear that they will be relegated to the backwaters of history should Dr. King’s dream ever truly be realized. Therefore they pump out millions of gallons of their vitriol, they make snide comments, and they countermarch in order to reassure themselves that they still matter in the grand scheme of things.

Al Sharpton even said that Dr. King favored a huge government that could steamroll over any offender on civil rights issues. Balderdash. I believe that Dr. King knew that government could change nothing. In order for his dream to be realized the heart of man must be changed and only man himself is capable of making that change. Why would Sharpton say this? Because he is dependent upon the system of government and the bigger that it is the greater is his share.

The majority of black Americans do not even know that it was the Democratic Party that earnestly sought to keep them in chains. They are unaware that the Jim Crow laws were enacted by Democrats. The do not know that President Eisenhower tried desperately to get Civil Rights legislation passed, but that a Democrat, Lyndon B. Johnson, blocked it and prevented its passage until he passed it himself seven years later as President. They are even unaware of the rampant racism within the Democrat’s ranks as evidenced by President Clinton’s comment that President Obama should have been serving him coffee or that Senator Byrd was a ranking member of the Ku Klux Klan and still habitually used the word nigger. If his heart had changed, would he still use that word? I don’t think so.

Earl Warren was appointed by a Republican President and his Supreme Court handed down the Brown v. Board of Education ruling that ended the travesty of Plessy v. Ferguson. The right values a man’s heart while the left looks at a man and only values his use to them. This is why Senator Joe Lieberman was cast off as soon as he was no longer of any use and Democrats and they even put him in blackface in order ridicule and diminish him.

These are the same people who say that they support our troops while they undermine their chances for success. They claim to love the freedoms of our nation and to deplore water boarding as torture, but when they have control of both the House and the Senate and one of their own is in the White House they keep such techniques for their own use. They claim that they are honest and ethical, yet they always run afoul of their own rules and the law or seem to have paid far less in taxes than they should owe, if they even bother to file a return at all.

As for the “counter protestors” to Glenn Beck’s event I think that I will quote the bard when he said, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

Definitely, the left only see skin color, everything is about skin color, the only reason obama is the president is because of his skin color. The left do not want equality, they want superiority for some minorities, ones that a dark skinned and also the ones that engage in homo bum-sex.

Al Sharpton is a buffoon and a massive tool. He does not know the meaning of the word honor, so it's understandable that he would not be able to appreciate what Glenn Beck is trying to do.

I wish I could have been there today!

MK- I recognized this when I was in Middle School long ago. It seemed ridiculous to me that the left insists on pigeon holing everyone when labeling increases the seperation of people. It is sad that they could take such a flawed concept so far.

Karen- I wish that I could have been there as well. I am glad that such positive events are happening as an example for our children.

Angel- Thank you and it is good to be back in the saddle, so to speak.

Kingshamus- Thank you for the kind words and for the quote.

That article states that tens of thousands of people turned up. I saw part of Beck's interview with Fox and he sememed to this it was more like hundreds of thousands.

Patrick Carroll said...

OOps, Major typo! Take 2...

That article states "tens of thousands" but Beck thinks that it was more like hundreds of thousands of people that turned up.

William Stout said...

Patrick- Looking at the photos, I would say that any reasonable person would see it as you describe it Patrick. Had Mr. Beck been one of the leftist bottom feeders I have no doubt that they would have placed the count somewhat more accurately.

Patrick Carroll said...

Absolutely correct William!

I've noticed that some 'conservatives' have been critical of BECK--I've also noticed- that true leaders threaten the establishment-on both sides of the aisle-so to speak--
So-Good On BECK!!!
I like your takes WS-:-)
