Five Big Lies Made At The ‘March On Washington’ 50th Anniversary
It really is a proud moment in our history that we can look back to Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and see so much progress towards fulfilling the promise of equality in the Declaration of Independence.
That’s what makes it that much more sullied by pandering politicians hoping to use the event for their political agenda, and harangue Americans with overwrought accusations of racism lurking around every corner.
Here are five big lies made during speeches at the Lincoln Memorial to push liberal agenda items:
1) It’s easier to buy an assault weapon than it is to vote in America – Bill Clinton.
Actually it costs a lot of money, and you need an ID to get a gun permit, but don’t let that get in the way of a false speech point. And if you’d like to make it easier to purchase guns, be our guest!
2) From Obama – the Berlin Wall fell because of the Civil Rights Movement?!
I guess he’s saying, “you didn’t do that!” to Reagan, Thatcher and Pope John Paul. We’re still waiting on his promise to lower the seas from 2008.
3) Somehow, racial equality has to do with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Coup, the Syrian Civil War between Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah, and Trayvon Martin being killed by a Peruvian.
This from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter.
In fact, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. called the American government “the greatest purveyor of violence” in reference to the Vietnam War. That doesn’t sound like someone who would have been cheering on a Syrian strike.
4) You can feed hungry people with courage, and also house the homeless in it! – Obama.
If you could feed and house people with courage, then Obama is surely the cause of most of the poverty and homelessness in the world. Oh and by the way, incomes fell more than twice as much under Obama’s “recovery” than they did during the recession. Should we really be taking advice from this guy on feeding and sheltering?
5) Dimwitted crusader against Zionism Jimmy Carter knows MLK would have loved gun control!
Except, Reverend King owned an “arsenal” of guns for his own protection, and he even applied for a concealed carry license, which was denied for racist reasons. History is inconvenient for Jimmy Carter, and often cruel to him.
Oh well, what difference does truth make? While the rest of American society continues making progress, we can be sure the liberals and Democrats will fight tooth and nail so that no one admits it.
