Martin Luther King Was a Republican!

An article written by Frances Rice on the website of the National Black Republican Association argues that MLK was a Republican. 

She writes:

It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican.  Why?  It was the Democrats who Dr. King was fighting, and he would not have joined the Democratic Party, the party of segregation and the Ku Klux Klan.

The fact that Dr. King was a Republican is affirmed by Dr. King’s niece, Dr. Alveda C. King, in an article and video posted on the website of the National Black Republican Association at www.NBRA.info. To gain a better understanding about why Dr. King was a Republican, we need to take a walk through history.

She touches on the following:

  • Slavery – Democrats fought to expand it, Republicans fought to ban it
  • Democrats fought against civil rights in the 1950’s and 1960’s
  • Republicans championed civil rights in the 1950’s and 1960’s
  • Lyndon Johnson did not predict a racist exodus to the Republican Party
  • President John F. Kennedy was not a civil rights advocate
  • Goldwater was a Libertarian, not a racist 
  • The truth about Nixon’s “Southern Strategy”
  • Nixon started affirmative action implementation
  • Democrats talk tolerance, but practice intolerance
  • The myth of voter suppression by Republicans
  • Hurricane Katrina – Democrats failed blacks
  • The Democratic Party today is anti-black
  • The Republican Party today promotes black prosperity
  • Democrats owe blacks an apology
  • MLK would be a Republican today

Today, while professing to revere Dr. King, Democrats are still trying to tarnish his image and diminish his civil rights achievements by claiming that, if Dr. King were alive today, he would embrace the secularist, socialist policies of the Democratic Party.

 

In reality, Dr. King was a Christian who held deeply religious beliefs and was guided by his faith and his Republican Party principles in his struggle to gain equality for blacks.  He did not embrace the type of socialist, secularist agenda that is promoted by the Democrat Party today, which includes fostering dependency on welfare that breaks up families, supporting same-sex marriage, approving partial-birth abortion and banning God from the public square.

An understanding of who the real Dr. King was can be gained from a glimpse of Dr. King as a young man who participated in an oratorical contest when he was 14 years old.  The title of his speech was “The Negro and the Constitution” which had the following sentences:  “We cannot have an enlightened democracy with one great group living in ignorance…We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flout the central teachings of Jesus:  brotherly love and the Golden Rule….”

If Dr. King were still alive, he would still be a Republican and would be slandered by Democrats in the same way that they smeared him in the 1960’s and demean all black Republicans today.
