What MLK would say,  Civil Rights, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired the hearts and minds of an entire nation with love, non-violence and unity. He did not preach hate, violence or division. That’s why he would be stunned by the actions and rhetoric of some people, groups and organizations today.

Dr King’s inspirational philosophy and leadership resulted in landmark legislative actions, namely the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. That’s 188 years after our Declaration of Independence was signed. That’s a significant part of our history. Period!

Nowhere in history has hate, violence and division accomplished anything significant and lasting. It was love of freedom and unity that inspired the founding of this country, even though it required the violence of war.

So what do today’s hate mongers and violent dividers hope to accomplish? I don’t think they know. Many are reacting to the distorted lens of the liberal media. They want to create constant chaos, deny opinions different from theirs, and resist all efforts to strengthen America.

That was not the vision of Dr. King and the movement he inspired.

The only message of congressional Democrats and liberal voices is to resist, which encourages violence, divisiveness and economic stagnation.

They want to resist anything Trump.

They want to resist a health care and health insurance system that returns choice back to consumers, a tax system that allows people to keep more of their hard-earned dollars, a business environment that encourages growth, a border policy that seeks to enforce the laws and protect our citizens, and a federal government that’s getting smaller rather than perpetually getting bigger.

Dr. King would be appalled that any citizens would be against any of these goals. These same goals inspired the founding of this nation, the survival of this nation and the prosperity of this nation.

MLK would think that we are way off track from what our future could be. He might even say we are moving backwards instead of forward. 

I say we are moving backwards if we allow the hate mongers, the violence seekers and the dividers to move us backwards.

MLK would say I didn’t die for this, and you shouldn’t live to promote hate, violence and divisiveness.

Dr King’s voice of love, non-violence and unity still resonates with some of us, and just like MLK, our voices will not be silenced.
