Barack Obama and Martin Luther King

I was debating a liberal at a public forum in Virginia Beach the other day and they said something that deeply offended me. They said that a President Obama would be the fulfillment of what Martin Luther King worked so hard for. When I said that the comparison patently offended me and was absurd, I received gasps from the room. This puzzled me.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a great man and I view him as one of the greatest uniters in American history. His cause was just. To compare Barack Obama to Martin Luther Jr., to put it in sports terms, would be to compare Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs to Michael Jordan. Sure, Tony has won a few championships and has gathered acclaim, but to put the two on even similar footing would be a grave insult.

Lets analyze what Martin Luther King has done. He worked for, was jailed, and lost his life for a dream. His dream was that one day we would all be judged by the content of our character rather than the color of our skin. He worked for equal rights and a unity of the races. He wanted different cultures and races to work together and gave his life for that ideal.

Barack Obama has engaged in tireless class warfare his entire adult life. He has surrounded himself with radical socialists, Marxists, and racists. All you need to have done is watched CNN or read the New York Times a few times over the course of this election cycle to know this. Actually, you don’t even need to have watched or read the news at all. You can simply have read his own books, which detail his associations and predispositions.

Barack Obama is not fit to have his name mentioned in the same breath as Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King showed us how to work together and that we could all work together as equals. Obama divides us and his liberal policies of spreading the wealth shows his true belief that we can never work together as equals.

Obama’s attitude not only clashes with Dr. King’s, but they happen to clash with John F. Kennedy’s as well. “And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”

  2. I wish someone would do more research re: MLK. Some years ago I read an early speech by Dr. King, exhorting blacks to hard work, honesty and self-reliance: conservative principles.

    But later I believe he was taken with the idea of “economic justice,” which seems to be Obama’s underlying principle: black liberation theology and redistributionist goals.

    Doesn’t Obama reflect the ideas that King came to embrace later in life? I seem to remember King was constantly being investigated as a communist.

    Did he undergo a change of philosophy later in life?
