The celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday is here again as the United States prepares to enter Black History month. The normal expectation is for citizens across the country to celebrate and honor the man for giving birth to the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s.
Underneath the banner of Civil Rights and the cry from Martin Luther King that he had a dream, there were other forces at play. While the public face was pacifist demonstrations and visionary speeches that stirred the masses, the private face was a virulent push for a radical transition to a socialist America. It was King’s words that inspired masses to accept ideas that previous generations would not.
In a sense we have come to our nation’s capital to cash a check … This note was a promise 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 … Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.”
The Socialists of the day, running under the banner of Civil Rights, could easily grasp the idea of universal brotherhood, but they also could and did grasp the idea that white America was in debt to blacks. This debt was never quantified and never laid out with a measurable limit so that at one point, America could be said to have paid back the bad check. No one really said what the debt was or how payment was to be measured, but the red left knew exactly how to measure it.
The debt is defined in legislation as one of wealth and power while being sold as a debt of opportunity, something emotional and undefined. This debt of emotion is to be paid through transfer and redistribution of material means from the haves to the have nots, which has come to mean from whites to non-whites, including masses of immigrants from non-American countries. Any inequality between whites and non-whites, real or perceived, gives proof to the claim that the dream is not achieved and further redistribution is necessary.
King had a vision and utopian visions serve no function other than to pacify the masses. The reality is that blacks in 1963 wanted access to the same material opportunities whites had. The evidence now says they have it and still America is said to have a long way to go. King’s dream reminds whites of their debt while at the same time convincing the masses that utopia can and must be achieved.
His dream was only that, a dream, and the increasing acceptance of Socialist ideology as well as the acceptance of demographics that will make whites an absolute minority for the sake of paying that bad check America owes is the practical reality. Martin Luther King, Jr. is now the face of justification for a Socialist America, universal material equality for all Americans, except for whites.
What King’s speech actually accomplished was to lull the masses into accepting the transition to full-fledged Socialism, making King a black tar opiate of the masses. Maybe King did not envision a Socialist America, nor did the masses have such an end in mind, but others did. His speeches and achievements do not mark a period of greatness, but rather the emergence of Socialist America and the end of everything else.
