Remember Dr. King's Dream By Supporting American Muslims
The Global Grind ^ | January 18, 2013 | Russell Simmons & Rabbi Marc Schneier

Posted on 01/21/2013 12:14:06 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

On Jan. 7, exactly two weeks before we are to simultaneously celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and inaugurate Barack Obama to his second term as President of the United States, sinister advertisements went up in dozens of subway stations around New York City, making evident that despite the undoubted strides our nation has made toward achieving justice and equality, bigotry and fear-mongering remain alive and well in America.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative, headed by Pamela Geller, an inflammatory demagogue with a long history of anti-Muslim incitement, purchased space in 39 stations for ads with an image of the burning World Trade Center and a quote attributed to the Quran saying, "Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers." The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which administers New York's transit system, said the ads will run for a month.

This new ad campaign is Round Two of Geller's pernicious campaign to whip up hatred of American Muslims by placing ads in transit systems around the nation. Last September, Geller's group paid for ads in subway stations and on buses in New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago and Denver, which read: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad." Those ads not only falsely conflated belief in Islam with enmity to Israel, but also implied that adherents of Islam are savages.

The Quranic verse (3:151) which Geller cites in her new ad campaign refers to a moment in early Muslim history in which a large army of idol worshippers from Mecca stood poised to invade Medina in an attempt to wipe out a small community of Muslims living under the leadership of the Prophet Muhammad...

I don’t want to support muslims, librats or anybody else. Let’s all practice self reliance and personal responsibility.

I can't take any of the MSM prattle about MLK seriously.

The only place his ideals live today is among the conservatives. Certainly not among racialist liberals.

His name was Martin Luther King, not Martin Mohammed King.

Martin Luther King-—The name serves as a warning in every big city as a street to stay away from.

I just heard there is a Muslim Inaugural Ball tonight in DeeCee.

That just seems weird. What do the do serve water and sit at tables to discuss killing Infadels? They don't even like music or dancing, do they?

Remember Dr. King's Dream By Supporting the Content of American Character [not skin color]

"I have a dream ... 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."

“it goes without saying that the latest ads in New York subway stations are antithetical to the message of Dr. King, who denounced bigotry against people of all backgrounds.”

King was both a Christian and a Republican. As a Christian, King knew of the long history of Muslim violent attacks on Christians.

This article was penned by a JINO. Were King alive today, he would certainly know the accuracy of “Islam - to know it is to loath it.”

Attention All Libtards: It isn’t bigotry if they really are committed to enslaving or killing you.

MLK’s dream will NEVER be realized, not tomorrow, not ever.

It’s not even realized in Africa where there is a more homogeneous racial populace than there is in the US.

In fact, the reality gets further removed from that dream, as time goes by.

Well, Rabbi, the Muslims think you’re a pig and an ape and will willingly cut your throat if given the chance. How do you like that?

Stupid idea. The ideals of Martin Luther King had nothing to do with the death cult. MLK pushed for equal treatment, the death cult wants to eliminate anyone who is not like them.

If you really want to educate yourself on the threat that Islam imposes on the entire world, including our own USA, then read the recently published book titled, “Christianity, Islam and Atheism, The Struggle for the Soul of the West,” written by William Kilpatrick and published by Ignatius Press. It is available on Amazon.com in both hardcover and Kindle.

Folks, you need to read this book. The facts presented, especially the statistics on the Islamic penetration of Europe, are overwhelming.

Just as no one but an unabashed anti-Semite would suggest that Judaism is a bloodthirsty religion because of biblical passages commanding the Children to Israel to kill their enemies, no one but an anti-Muslim bigot would cite a Quranic verse out of context to smear modern-day Muslims.

The problem is the Jews aren't killing us Infidels, but the Muslims are. - Tom

With the ever increasing reports of Mohammedans worldwide, as they are the minority in other countries, berating those countries for not moving towards Sharia Law, and with the facts that those Mohammedans living in America have ever been SILENT in denouncing the 9/11 attacks, carried out by Saudi national Mohammedans, which killed friends of mine in the commodity business, I vocally, and in writing, support that great American, Pamela Geller, in exposing the lie that is Mohammedanism.

Good grief, don’t they know that Martin Luther King was a Christian?

Thanks for posting that. I am sick of the fawning over King.

I figured Beck would be doing backflips over his hero today.

I remember King’s speeches. I liked the ‘MountainTop’ speech the best.

However, every time, just after King left someplace, the riots started. He wasn’t there. He was the warm up act.

But the scenario repeated. He and his leaders knew the scenario repeated. There is a spot I know of that is still empty and not rebuilt from the riots way back then.

Someone used to post on here about the open sex, drugs, communist rabble that were part of those who descended on the places where King was/had left.

I remember it well because I lived through it.

The writer conflates jihad with Islam -- IOW, a straw man argument, which is the sure sign of a liar, until one realizes that it's merely his admission that Jihad and Islam are indistinguishable from each other. Geller's earlier ad wasn't making that claim. 3:151 is in fact used by jihadists and those who whip up their desire to commit jihadist atrocities.

“King was both a Christian and a Republican”

Sorry, but King was not a Republican.

Got proof?

Most blacks were Republican back then because the Democrats were the party of the KKK, Bull Conner, ad nauseam.

I'd say that is a complement since they are far worse than savages...
