from the Patriotpost….at the moment, the party line is ruthlessly enforced

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’ … 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. … And if America is to be a great nation this must become true.” –Martin Luther King Jr.

Historian Shelby Steele observed, “There is an awful lot of conservative sentiment in black America, but at the moment, the party line is ruthlessly enforced.” Indeed, some of King’s chief lieutenants, like Jesse Jackson, tolerate no dissension from their liberal ranks now. They have abandoned King’s dream, and aligned themselves with political and social agendas obsessed with color at the expense of character.

Black conservatives of national stature, such as Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powel, Ward Connerly, Michael Steele, Jesse Lee Peterson, Alan Keyes, Don Scoggins, Alvin Williams, Ken Blackwell, Thomas Sowell, Star Parker and Walter Williams are routinely castigated by the Black Supremacists, as “Uncle Toms” and “puppets.” Yet these are the men and women who really understand King’s central message about character.

Today, president-elect Barack Hussein Obama will be waxing eloquently about King’s legacy. But it is worth noting that prior to his murder in 1968, Martin King went to Obama’s hometown of Chicago to meet with Mayor Richard Daley, father of the current Windy City Don. Chicago was a hotbed of racial hatred under Daley, and not much has changed.

King observed of that enmity, “This is the most tragic picture of man’s inhumanity to man. I’ve been to Mississippi and Alabama and I can tell you that the hatred and hostility in Chicago are really deeper than in Alabama and Mississippi.”

Chicago was not only a denizen of racial hatred but the violent black supremacist movement was born there. King said, “Those who are associated with ‘Black Power’ and black supremacy are wrong.”

It is in that very racial hatred and hostility in which Obama has been steeped, particularly by mentors such as Jeremiah Wright.

At King’s funeral, one Bible passage, Matthew 5:9, summed up his life’s mission: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”

Obama was not stewarded by peacemakers.

Finally, irrespective of one’s conclusion about Martin Luther King’s proper place in history (given the historical account of his personal integrity and character), the two texts cited below (from The Patriot’s Historic Documents section) are well worth reading — for each of them proclaim truth.

“I have a dream”

“Letter from a Birmingham jail”

    “Awful lot”? Where??

    Republicans Falter in Outreach to Blacks, Hispanics

    Blacks are scarce here at the Republican National Convention.

    Of the more than 2,300 Republican delegates who gathered this week, just 36 — or 1.5% — were black, the lowest portion in 40 years, according to a study by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, a Washington think tank that focuses on black issues.

    That is substantially below the figure in 2004, when a record-setting 6.8% of Republican delegates were black.

    The number of black Republican candidates running for federal office also has fallen sharply, to about seven from a high of 24 in 1996, according to the study. On an organizational level, just one of the more than 160 members of the Republican National Committee is black, the joint center says.
