Obama Is No Martin Luther King

A few days ago, Obama gave a speech honoring Martin Luther King on the 50th anniversary of his historic I Have a Dream speech. I found it disgusting to be honest. King was a great man who wanted equal opportunity for all citizens. He wanted people to be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. He didn't want anybody to get anything handed to them. He just wanted the same opportunity for everybody to live the American dream. His ideas were about as opposite from Obama's as you get. That is why I do not believe for one minute that King would have supported Obamacare as Mr. Obama suggested.

Another part of King's legendary speech said that he dreams of a day when ancestors of former slaves and slave owners would sit down and eat together. That tells me that he really wanted unity among the races. Looking at the nation now, it has never been more divided over race. Obama's statement that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin. That right there meant that he was going to side with Martin because he was black regardless of what the evidence was. Since the verdict, there have been many black on white crimes claiming it was for Trayvon. Yet, Obama never once has told any of them to stop the violence. The fact is that we are very close to a black on white war and King would be disgusted by that.
