    Prince William was accused of "horrific comments" by Martin Luther King's daughter in the aftermath of a Ukrainian community event where he was partially misquoted. Bernice King linked the Duke of Cambridge's remarks to colonialism after William and Kate Middleton visited the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in London to support the relief effort on March 9. Footage from the event showed Prince William said: "Everyone is horrified by what they are seeing. The news every day, it's almost unfathomable to actually witness it, to see it. For our generation, it's very alien to see this in Europe. We're all right behind...

    Eric Clapton made news when he suggested that people who willingly accepted vaccination had fallen under something called "mass formation hypnosis". "Whatever the memo was, it hadn’t reached me. Then I started to realise there was really a memo, and a guy, Mattias Desmet [professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium], talked about it. And it’s great. The theory of mass formation hypnosis. And I could see it then. Once I kind of started to look for it, I saw it everywhere. I think there's a great argument to be made for Black Lives Matters' "Week of Action."...
  • Theological Antisemitism at Home in the Presbyterian Church

    01/30/2022 7:42:32 AM PST · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | January 30, 2022 | Jonathan Feldstein
    In a recent statement published on the annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA), not only misrepresented and defamed Dr. King’s legacy, but he did so using some of the most vile antisemitic tropes singling out the Jewish people and Israel. In his statement, Dr. Nelson wrote of Dr. King’s legacy and overcoming societal inequities in the US and all over the world. Listing a broad range of social problems, Dr. Nelson then seamlessly pivoted into antisemitic lies, mentioning only Israel...

    n Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Day, a spice company sent out an email calling all Republicans "racist" who largely hope to one day "shoot a Black person." Penzeys Spices, a Wisconsin-based company, issued an email promotion Jan. 14 dubbing the MLK holiday weekend, "Republicans are racist weekend." The promotion went on to accuse Republicans of opposing BLM's success "in moving America towards greater equality for Black people, in many ways the first real success since the time of Dr. King," during the racial justice protests that erupted nationwide during summer 2020. "Republicans did all they could to derail that...

    One man inspired millions and helped change a country. The other was a career criminal and drug addict who inspired criminals to riot in the streets and shake down businesses in the name of “equity.” This past Monday, we celebrated the birthday of the former, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Now, a comment made by one Joseph Robinette Biden from June 2020 has been resurrected in which Biden said Floyd’s death had greater global impact than that of Dr. King. Newsweek reported that Biden’s original comments were made at an economic roundtable in Philadelphia in the weeks after Floyd’s...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid said Monday on her show “The ReidOut” that Republicans were the “same” as the Dixiecrat segregationist political party. Reid also claimed Republicans celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. but oppose “everything Dr. King fought for.” Reid said, “Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day when people who would have stood four-square against everything Dr. King fought for — equal rights, civil rights, the elimination of poverty, and especially voting rights — soberly repeat that one partial quote they memorized in high school.” Reid then shared video and tweets from Govs. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Glenn Youngkin (R-VA),...

    On the campaign trail in June 2020, President Joe Biden claimed that Martin Luther King Jr.’s death did not make as much of an impact as the death of George Floyd. “Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said during a campaign event on June 11, 2020.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had some sharp words Monday for the senators protecting the filibuster amid the voting rights debate, suggesting they are debasing the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. just as the country is honoring the civil rights legend. "If you really, truly want to honor Dr. King, don't dishonor him by using a congressional custom as an excuse for protecting our democracy," Pelosi said during a voting rights event at Washington's Union Station on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

    Martin Luther King Jr. Day is unique among national holidays in that it honors the one American who profoundly described and demonstrated through love and non-violence a picture of the fulfillment of core values expressed in both the country’s founding Declaration of Independence in 1776 and in President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in 1863. The Declaration’s self-evident truth “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” wasn’t realized when the U.S. Constitution was ratified some 14 years after the Declaration....

    On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot while standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. An hour later, he was declared dead. For some 50 years, the federal government has maintained that James Earl Ray was the gunman who assassinated King that day. But within Martin Luther King’s family, there remains a persistent belief that Ray is innocent, and was set up to take the fall.But within a few days of confessing, Ray began to claim his innocence, arguing that that he had been set up by a man he knew only...

    Schools should be in full session on MLK Jr Day without exception. Isn’t the encouragement of open dialogue and continuing education the primary reasons for MLK Jr Day? And if so, why aren’t students in full attendance on the very day that honors this man? There is simply no better way to honor the national holiday than dedicating his story, lessons, and experiences to the students for an entire day.

    This past weekend, I watched a number of documentaries with my children about an America that no longer exists. We watched as people of our complexion were violently denied access to restaurants, hotels, schools and more. My kids witnessed, from an undeniably changed present, a vile history that defies understanding. It was so hard for them to imagine such a world where they could be so easily rejected and reviled simply because of their beautiful color. A hard-fought Dream has become a reality here in America. The codified systemic racism heralded as “heritage” met its demise because good people—both black...

    American Thinker ^ | Vince Everett Ellison
    After finding evidence that the "man of God" and "moral conscience of our nation," the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., participated in the rape of a parishioner, engaged in numerous sex orgies, received cash payments from known communists, and admitted that he was a Marxist, King biographer and Pulitzer Prize–winning author David Garrow wrote of King, "There is no question that a profoundly painful reckoning and reconsideration inescapably awaits." *snip* To have been a Christian minister, it is illuminating that King's ideology is anathema to Christianity, manliness, and American freedom. Consider this: after attempting to integrate an all-White hotel...

    Baltimore is burning because community organizers and various thugs are tearing the city apart in the aftermath of the strange death of a young black man who was in the custody of police — and President Obama is trying to make things worse.In an incredible non-coincidence the rioting follows a weekend rally by the Occupy Wall Street-like Baltimore Peoples Assembly. There also was a first wave of rioting over the weekend. Outside activists have been flooding into Baltimore, according to reports. Police and civilians have been injured. A CVS store was looted and set on fire. Rioters chopped up fire...

    She liked to mimic her grandmother, so a week ago, Nyiah Courtney got her hair braided. “We twins now,” the smiling 6-year-old told Andrea Courtney. It was one of the last times the two talked. Nyiah was fatally shot Friday night while walking to her nearby home with her mother, father and older sister in the Congress Heights neighborhood of Southeast Washington. Police said the shots came from a gray, four-door sedan passing the commercial corner of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X avenues, striking Nyiah, her mother and four others, among the latest victims in a city struggling...

    A statue of Martin Luther King Jr. in California was vandalized with “horrific graffiti” in a despicable act that’s being investigated as a hate crime, officials say. Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia said the likeness of the civil rights icon at Martin Luther King Jr. Park was defaced over the July Fourth holiday weekend. “The LBPD are investigating this as a hate crime and we are working to catch whoever committed this awful act,” Garcia tweeted Monday. “Our MLK statue is a symbol of hope and justice for the community. This hate and desecration has no place in our city.”...

It’s almost like it’s going to be two Americas.”“You’re going to have areas where vaccination rate is high, where more...

Police in Jackson raided the ramshackle property owned by Anna Sandhu Ray, 74, on Monday and uncovered a house of horrors where 44 dogs were found living atop piles of trash or caged while soaked in their own waste, according to national nonprofit Animal Rescue Corps. At least three dead dogs were found in the house and the stench from “dangerously high levels” of ammonia...
