below is an opinion piece written by super leftist turd morris dees, which i plucked from the detroit free press, it is entitled, ON MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.'S BIRTHDAY, STILL A DREAM DEFERRED.
i added my own commentary.
Serious but surmountable challenges threaten the well-being and future
of children: persistent poverty, proliferation of gun violence and
unnecessary arrests of children of color. On Jan. 21, as we gather to
mark the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the second
inauguration of the country's first African-American president, it seems
right to reflect on the implications of Dr. King's vision and teaching
for these issues of today.
so the stage has been set by the author, we are going to talk about being lazy and the governments lack of ability to make the lazy rich, racial profiling, and the soup of the day, gun violence and the rotten bastards who own weapons of war. let us proceed.
In 1967, when the Poor People's Campaign was launched, Dr. King
labeled it the second phase of the civil rights struggle. In 1968, 25
million people -- nearly 13% of the population -- were living in
poverty. That year, the year he was assassinated, Dr. King called upon
the government to prioritize helping the poor with an anti-poverty
package that included housing and a guaranteed income for all Americans. Despite
much progress, the issues are in too many ways unchanged, as structural
inequality and racial discord continue to erode the foundation of
liberty. The number of people living in poverty
today has doubled to almost 50 million. Disappointingly, Michigan's
poverty rate of 17% stands higher than the national rate of 15%,
according to 2011 figures released last year.
so in 45 years time, and at the cost of 16.7 trillion dollars, adjusted for inflation as of 2008, what have we the taxpayer got for our money? 2 times the number of folks to share it with, that's what. the numbers prove that we can not give our way to prosperity.
Across the country,
more than one in five children live in poverty. For children of color,
it is even worse: One in four African-American children and almost one
in three Hispanic children will grow up in deprivation. Although I
am encouraged that the inspiration generated by the civil rights
movement and Poor People's Campaign remains alive today, I know that we
dees mandates that we continue down the dead end road we are lost upon.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which I
started in Montgomery in 1971, there are more than 1,000 hate groups
active in America.
what does the amount of hate groups have to do with this article? read on.
States like Alabama and Arizona have enacted
draconian anti-immigrant laws that would make Abraham Lincoln weep.
if you oppose illegal immigration, you are apparently a member of a hate group. additionally, how are we helping our own "poor", by letting in every other country's poor?
Today there are more African Americans locked up than the number of
enslaved blacks in 1850, and our country leads the world in the
incarceration of children, with nearly 2 million arrested each year.
according to the 2010 census, whites make up 72.4 percent of the population, with blacks making up 12.6 percent of the population. now according to fbi numbers from 2009, whites account for 69.1 percent of all arrest, while blacks account for 28.3 percent of all arrest, more than double their share of the population. you are free to draw your own conclusions on this fact, but morris would have us believe that cops are possibly ignoring whites who commit crime targeting blacks. and while i am no lawyer, i know that incarcerated means locked up, and not arrested or detained, and returned to their parents in short order.
note how morrie jumps on the gun control band wagon immediately, but never gets back around to fleshing out that idea. it's cuz he HAS to advance the liberal agenda at all times or get thrown out of the club.
morrie was speaking at an MLK rally today in ann arbor, and you can go here to read his full rant.
