Democrats Bury the Civil Rights Movement

By the time you read this, Joe Biden may have already announced selection of his vice presidential running mate.

From everything we read, it is certain that it will be a woman, and a good chance that woman will be black.

But why, when so much of what dominates our national discussion today is the alleged importance of elimination of racism and sexism, is there open and unabashed talk about how sexism and racism must be the basis for choosing the candidate for the nation’s second-highest office?

Can anyone imagine what would happen if a presidential candidate were to announce that his running mate must be a white male?

That, of course, would never happen. Because we reject racism and sexism? No. Because white male, certainly in Democratic Party circles, is politically incorrect, and black female is politically correct.

Is this because selecting a black female implies more morality, fairness and justice?

Anyone who believes that turns what the civil rights movement was allegedly about on its head.

The civil rights movement was about freedom.

We are just a few weeks from the 57th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s most famous speech, the “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 28, 1963.

In that speech, King defined the ideals of the movement he led.

He embraced the ideals of America. His criticism was that the nation was not living up to those ideals, not that those were the wrong ideals for us to strive for.

The promise of America, said King, was that “all men — yes, black men as well as white men — would be guaranteed the ‘unalienable rights’ of ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.'”

“Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children,” he said.

How can I not bring up the most quoted line of that speech?

“I have a dream today that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

The purpose of the civil rights movement, stated clearly by its leader that summer day in 1963, was that qualified candidates for the office of vice president of the United States would not be denied because they are a woman or because they are black.

The dream, and the purpose, was not that an individual would be chosen for that job, or any job, because he or she is a woman or is black.

The ideals of America and the civil rights movement, that every American is a child of God and all God’s children live freely under the same God-given eternal truths, have been lost by the Democratic Party.

Why has it happened? Why have the Democratic Party and the liberals who populate it and vote for its candidates buried the ideals of the civil rights movement?

Because those ideals — one free nation under God — imply a deal they don’t want to make.

First, it means faith in God and God’s word — the Bible. Second, it means every individual takes personal responsibility for his or her own life.

Liberals don’t want it. They don’t want eternal truths that apply equally to all. And they certainly don’t want personal responsibility to be the hallmark of individual behavior in a free country.

They want a politicized nation where politicians gain power by making huge promises paid for by other people’s money. And they want to make sure that if someone’s life is not working, they can blame it on someone else.

This may be the formula for electing a Democratic president today. But it is also the formula for destroying our country and certainly all the dreams that black Americans strived for in the civil rights movement.

  1. Well he’s picked her. I’m not going to do any bad mouthing here. Although Biden’s mind has skipped town he has the right to make his choice. There’s only one thing I strongly, sincerely, hope. Biden’s pick, if the democrats should manage to pull the election off, WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND IT WILL HAPPEN QUICKLY. Everyone had best think long and strong before they vote this time.

  2. If the Democrats win the election it will be by deceit. It also means that America will never be called The Land of the Free because everything will be gone we will end up in poverty and people will be begging for food. Wake up America before this happens. Stand up and be heard. Let’s a pray for America.

    1. Youre right. It wll be by deceit. Big Tech, mail ins, and MSM- and the indoctrinated youth in our country. together with academia, NYT, and tthe hollyweird crowd.

  3. The very concept of a “color-free” world, and equality is central to MLK’s beliefs. The goal was in no way inconsistent with the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. It is astounding to me that JFK’s response was “Affirmative Action”, basically a RACIST POLICY which is based on ensuring preferential treatment based completely on RACE. Because of the obvious racist basis for “Affirmative Action” it has been rejected by every other democracy in the world. Only the US has it, truly remarkable when one considers that “EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW” This marked a major step forward in the DEMOCRATS strategy of casting BLACK AMERICANS as being incapable of making their own way in the world, and casting themselves as the heroes and “protectors” of this vulnerable race. It is totally ironic that the Democratic Party, formally the Whigs, were PRO-SLAVERY and attempted to negotiate the continuance of slavery in the deep south by agreeing that Missouri, a territory poised to enter the Union, would be slavery free. (See the “MISSOURI COMPROMISE”). The Democrats have reinvented themselves as the”heroes” of the downtrodden by identity politics, constant propaganda regarding “white privilege”, “white supremacism”, “police racial profiling” and other divisionist dogma that are not supported by the facts or the public records on crime statistics, economic data or other legitimate research. This is a strategy of using these fictitious social constructs, portrayed as “FACTS” to manipulate a gullible sector of our society into believing their life status and success is because of prejudice rather than the consequences of their own behavior and the values they were taught as children. Propaganda is powerful, and only exposure to factual information can cure it. We must continue to speak the truth, despite the racial epitaphs that are hurled at us, and the efforts of the propagandists to censor us.

    1. DINESH DSOUZAS BOOKS SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING IN ALL SCHOOLS,THEY WOULD ACTUALLY LEARN SOME NEEDED TRUTH INSTEAD OF ALL THE INDOCTRINATION ON THE LEFT.

      1. As well as Larry Elders doc. Uncle Tom. Levin’s books, Victor D. Hansen’s books,, Blitz by D. Horrowitz, Dr. Thomas Sowell’s, so may serious authors, Sean Hannity, Dan Bongino, etc.

  4. THE PARTY OF RACE BAITING AND IDENTITY POLITICS IS AT IT AGAIN. IF YOU THINK BIDEN WASNT EDGED TO HARRIS,YOU NEED TO RETHINK YOUR POSITION.THERE WAS A TIME WHEN PEOPLE WERE CHOSEN ON MERIT/ NOW THEYRE CHOSEN ON COLOR. I HAAVE LIVED HERE OVER 61 YEARS AND WOULD NOW MOVE IN A HEARTBEAT IF I COULD. THESE PLANTATION PARTY DEMONRATS ARE TRAITORS TO AMERICA, AND ALL THE BLUE CITY MAYORS AND GOVERNORS NEED TO BE RECALLED. VOTE TRUMP FOR YOUR CHILDRENS SAKE.
