They walk among us. Still.

And they’ll probably always be out there. Some of our friends from the paranoid world of ‘white supremacy’ confused many schoolchildren recently. The kids, probably assigned to write papers about MLK Jr.  turned – as students do – to Google to begin their projects.  Below is a little of what they found at MartinLutherKing.org, (which comes up third on Google when searching “Martin Luther King Jr.”).

WHEN THE COMMUNISTS TOOK OVER a country, one of the first things that they did was to confiscate all the privately-held weapons, to deny the people the physical ability to resist tyranny. But even more insidious than the theft of the people’s weapons was the theft of their history. Official Communist “historians” rewrote history to fit the current party line. In many countries, revered national heroes were excised from the history books, or their real deeds were distorted to fit Communist ideology, and Communist killers and criminals were converted into official “saints.” Holidays were declared in honor of the beasts who murdered countless nations.

Did you know that much the same process has occurred right here in America? Every January, the media go into a kind of almost spastic frenzy of adulation for the so-called “Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.” . . .

It’s a poorly designed site, but uses the kinds of language kids have come to expect at educational sites – things like ‘download the flyer to bring to your classroom”.  Even so, I think our kids are a bit smarter than the clowns who publish this site.

After almost 50 years, they’re still afraid of a dead man who had a dream.

  1. And hopefully when the kids stagger onto this site they learn that Dr. King’s dream has yet to become fully realized and that the work continues!

  2. This is why our house still has books…my 12 year old son only has limited access to the internet…

    The “Other” all through time has been vilified by the ignorant, and white supremacy as a movement is as ignorant as they come…

    The Mythic Jesus came out of Israel, was born Jewish – gathered mostly Jewish followers in the early days of Christianity, had his movement embraced by a bunch of Romans and through missionary zeal, this movement became a religion practiced by every color of the rainbow…

    But beginning in the South, Good Christian Men, decided that the perfect symbol for terrorizing those who they themselves either feared or disagreed with was a Burning Cross…go figure, I mean the leap of faith that this requires could only be managed by the ignorant…

    Using symbols of God to terrorize, pretty much puts these soulless thugs on the same level as Al Qaeda…

  3. Alas the world will never be rid of those that rather than face their own failings and shortcomings, will avoid the introspection by blaming someone else. Sadly there will always be those who use this to whip such people up by telling them they are right in order to garner support for their own personal desires. The evil lead the stupid and we can only hope that they remain a minority. Sometimes I wonder.

    • You just described the history of demogoguery throughout time. They’ve always been among us – it’s just that before they didn’t have national/international mouthpieces like FOX and talk radio. They were left at the perimeters as they should be. But today . . . their fears are reinforced, over and over. From a single script.
