President Barack Obama today urged America to continue fighting for the equal nation Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned as he delivered a rousing speech marking 50 years since the activist’s iconic ‘I Have a Dream’ address.

Speaking from beneath the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., the president celebrated how far America has come since Dr King’s speech on August 28, 1963, which gave a ‘mighty voice to the quiet hopes of millions’. But he said there was still much to be done to honor the lives that were lost during the civil rights movement.

‘They did not die in vain,’ he said to the crowds gathered below. ‘Their victory was great. But we would dishonor those heroes as well to suggest that the work of this nation is somehow complete. The arc of the moral universe may bend towards justice, but it doesn’t bend on its own. To secure the gains this country has made requires constant vigilance, not complacency.’

He added that economic inequality–in which black unemployment is nearly twice that of white unemployment–and a country where many citizens still struggle to afford healthcare ‘remains our great unfinished business’.

‘When we turn not from each other or on each other but towards one another and we find we do not walk alone–that’s where courage comes from,’ he said. ‘And with that courage we can stand together for good jobs and just wages . . . for the right to healthcare . . . for the right of every child to get an education that stirs the mind and captures the spirit and prepares them for the world that awaits them.

‘America, I know the road will be long but I know we can get there. We will stumble but I know we’ll get back up.’

Throughout his speech he mentioned how the nation improved ‘because they marched’ in 1963, and at the end of his speech he urged people to ‘keep marching’.

‘No one can match King’s brilliance, but the same flame that lit the heart of all who are willing to take a first step for justice, I know that flame remains,’ he said.

‘That tireless teacher who gets to class early and stays late and dips into her own pocket to buy supplies because she believes that every child is her charge, she’s marching.

‘That successful businessman who doesn’t have to but pays his workers a fair wage and offers a shot to a man, maybe an ex-con, who’s down on his luck, he’s marching.

‘The mother who pours her love into her daughter so she grows up with the confidence to walk through the same doors as anybody’s son, she’s marching.

‘The father who realizes the most important job he’ll ever have is raising his boy right, even if he didn’t have a father, especially if he didn’t have a father at home, he’s marching.

‘The battle scarred veterans who devote themselves not only to helping their fellow warriors stand again and walk again and run again but to keep serving their country when they come home, they are marching.

‘Everyone who realizes what those glorious patriots knew on that day, that change does not come from Washington but to Washington. The change has always been built on our willingness. We, the people, to take on the mantle of citizenship, you are marching.’

Obama previously said that half a century after the march was a good time to reflect on how far the country has to go, particularly after the Trayvon Martin shooting trial in Florida. The devastated parents and brother of the slain teen also attended the D.C. event on Wednesday.

Although more than 20,000 people are believed to have attended the event, more than 100,000 were expected. The number far dwarfs the 250,000 to one million that took part in the original March on Washington; 200,000 of these then witnessed the ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.

Ahead of Obama’s speech, famous faces appeared on the stage, including actor Jamie Foxx, Oprah Winfrey and Rev. Al Sharpton, while Leann Rimes and Natalie Grant gave singing performances.

Peter and Paul, from the singing trio Peter, Paul and Mary, took to the stage to sing the Bob Dylan hit ‘Blowin’ in the Wind,’ which they sung in front of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 – a performance that turned the song into an anthem for interracial relations.

But notably absent from the speakers’ stage was the nation’s only black senator, Republic Representative Tim Scott of South Carolina.

There were also impassioned addresses from former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, who commented on America’s unfinished business, with Clinton saying: ‘A great democracy does not make it harder to vote than buy an assault weapon.’

‘It is time to stop complaining and put our shoulders against the stubborn gates holding the American people back,’ he said. ‘We must push open those stubborn gates . . . While racial divides persist, the whole American landscape is littered with the dashed hopes of all races.’

President Carter gave thanks to Dr King not for just helping to freeing black people but for ‘helping to free all people’.

‘He was the greatest leader that my native state–and my native country–has ever produced and I was not excluding presidents and the founding fathers when I said this,’ he said. ‘There’s a tremendous agenda ahead of us and I’m thankful to Martin Luther King that his dream is still alive.’

The former leaders were joined on the stage–where King delivered his speech 50 years ago–by the civil rights activist’s closest family members, including his sister, daughter, son and friend, Rep. John Lewis–an original freedom rider who appeared alongside Dr King at his 1963 speech.

‘We are not going to be discouraged, we are not going to be distracted, we are not going to be defeated,’ his sister, Christine King Farris, said of the continued fight for equality.

In his speech to the crowd, Rep. John Lewis shared his memories of the time and the country’s progress since.

‘When I look out over this diverse crowd, it seems to realize what Martin Luther King preached about,’ he said. ‘This moment in our history has been a long time coming but a change has come.

‘We have come a great distance in this country in the 50 years but we still have a great distance to go before we fulfill the dream of Martin Luther King.’

Of Dr King, he added: ‘He taught us the way of peace, the way of love, the way of non violence. He taught us to stand up, to speak up, to speak out, to find a way to get in the way… He changed us forever.’

But he added there still remained injustices.

‘We must never give up, we must never ever give in, we must keep our eyes on the prize,’ he said. ‘We are one people, we are one America. We all live in one house . . . When we finally accept this as true, then we will be able to fulfill Martin Luther King’s dream–to live in a community.’

Sites in nearly every state rang bells at 3 p.m. their time on Wednesday or at 3 p.m. EDT, the hour when King delivered his speech. Commemorations were planned from Washington to the far reaches of Alaska, where participants rang cow bells along with church bells in Juneau.

It was a fitting tribute in reference to King quoting from the patriotic song, ‘My Country ’tis of Thee.’

King implored his audience to ‘let freedom ring’ from the hilltops and mountains of every state in the nation, some of which he cited by name.

‘When we allow freedom to ring–when we let it ring from every city and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, Free at last, free at last, great God almighty, we are free at last,’ King said.

The speeches on Wednesday came after thousands of people took to the streets in Washington D.C. to march for ‘Jobs and Justice’.

In stirring scenes, people from across the country cheered and shook hands as they marched towards the Washington D.C. monument, retracing the steps Dr King and other civil rights activists took during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963–which also happened to be a Wednesday.

To mark its 50th anniversary, cities across the U.S. remembered Dr King and reiterated his message of economic justice, racial equality and hope.

International commemorations were held at London’s Trafalgar Square, as well as in Japan, Switzerland, Nepal and Liberia. London Mayor Boris Johnson has said King’s speech resonates around the world and continues to inspire people as one of the great pieces of oratory.

Some of the sites that hosted ceremonies were symbolic, such as the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site in Topeka, Kansas, a monument to the landmark Supreme Court case that outlawed segregated schools in 1954. Bells also rang at Lookout Mountain in Tennessee and Stone Mountain in Georgia, a site with a Confederate memorial that King referenced in his speech.

In Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker’s office planned to join the commemorations by ringing a ‘virtual bell’ online. Meanwhile in Baltimore, a performer reenacted King’s ‘Dream’ speech at City Hall.

Although Dr King was shot dead in Memphis, Tennessee, five years after his speech, many believe that Obama’s election as the first African-American U.S President was a giant step towards his dream being realized.

The march and its effects are credited with helping pass the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the Voting Rights Act in 1965, both of which insured equal rights for all U.S. citizens.

The President himself credits the actions of people like King for the opportunity to become the current incumbent at the White House.

Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama’s senior advises, said of the President: ‘He stands on the shoulders of Martin Luther King, and the sacrifices that King made that make a President Obama possible are deeply humbling to him,

Education Secretary Arne Duncan said: ‘Tomorrow, just like 50 years ago, an African-American man will stand on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and speak about civil rights and justice.

‘But afterward, he won’t visit the White House. He’ll go home to the White House. That’s how far this country has come. A black president is a victory that few could have imagined 50 years ago.’

For Obama, the march is a ‘seminal event’ and part of his generation’s ‘formative memory.’

A half century after the march, he said, is a good time to reflect on how far the country has come and how far it still has to go, particularly after the Trayvon Martin shooting trial in Florida.

A jury’s decision to acquit neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in the 2012 fatal shooting of the unarmed, 17-year-old black teen outraged blacks across the country last month and reignited a nationwide discussion about the state of U.S. race relations.

The response to the verdict also raised expectations for America’s black president to say something about the case.

Obama spoke out to help people understand black outrage over the verdict. He spoke about personal experiences from before he became a well-known public figure, such as being followed in department stores and hearing the click of car doors being locked as he walked by.

He said the African-American community was looking at the issue ‘through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.’

But the President hasn’t often spoken on the subject of race in public – and only done so when it has been necessary.

During his radio interview yesterday, Mr Obama listed a variety of advances in racial equality, including equal rights before the law, an accessible judicial system, thousands of African-American elected officials, African-American chief executives as well as pointing out the doors that the civil rights movement opened for Latinos, women and gays.

‘I think he would say it was a glorious thing,’ he said.

But Obama noted that King’s speech was also about jobs and justice.

‘When it comes to the economy, when it comes to inequality, when it comes to wealth, when it comes to the challenges that inner cities experience, he would say that we have not made as much progress as the civil and social progress that we’ve made, and that it’s not enough just to have a black president, it’s not enough just to have a black syndicated radio show host,’ Obama said.

Last night, Michelle Obama saluted one of the march’s organizers Whitney Young at a screening for the documentary The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights.

She called Young, who served as executive director of the National Urban League during the 1960s, one of the ‘unsung heroes in our history whose impact we still feel today.’

She said: ‘For every Dr. King, there is a Whitney Young or a Roy Wilkins or a Dorothy Height, each of whom played a critical role in the struggle for change. And then there are the millions of Americans, regular folks out there, whose names will never show up in the history books.’

    The civil rights movement is over. They won. Whites passed laws to but negroes at the herd of every line, yet 60 years later they are still massively failing.

    • So CAL Snowman

      They did not win. Without the full force of the federal government and the mainstream media there would have been no integration. Black people marching for civil rights had about as much effect as black people marching to “stop the violence” in Chicago. A small cabal focused on one thing and one thing only, dominion over Western civilization, is responsible for this. If the White race was MORE interested in acquiring power and dominion over the world than we were about living normal, healthy lives, we would not be in this position. The other races accuse us Whites of being insanely greedy and power hungry. If that were true we would never have let this country become this nightmare.

      • White Mom in WDC

        Exactly. Interesting that these people always have time for marches and activism. Many hard working people in this country are working two jobs just to pay the rent. We are interested in dominating BUT we should recognize that we are becoming tax slaves to these parasites. Whites need to go stealth.

      • Sick of it

        If their accusations were true, we’d still be a majority of the world population.

      • Romulus

        Two-thirds of the entire planets wealth is controlled by a very small % of earths population that all have something in common.

      • ms_anthro

        I say it’s time we live up to their scariest fantasies about us. We might as well earn all this persecution and hatred of our kind. Let’s finally give them something to whine about.

        • Jack Burton

          But you see, that’s exactly why they behave as they do, they have nothing to fear. They know we won’t rise up against them. They are taking advantage of the system and White people every day.

    • OlderWoman

      Who won? The numbers I read who attended this brouhaha were a mere 20,000.


  • MekongDelta69

    This stuff was on ALL day. I didn’t watch a second of it.

    MLK was a communist sympathizer, a womanizer (he had two white prostitutes in bed with him the night before he was greased), and a plagiarizer (a lot of his speeches were taken in part, from black preachers from the early 50s).

    NoBama is a black muslim marxist who is hell-bent on destroying America. He compared MLK to Jesus.

    Birds of a feather…

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Yeah, I heard snatches here and there but similarly tuned it out. Sanity skill.

    • Romulus

      Better yet, cover him inpig fat ,and purify with flame.

    • Oldcorporal

      Even Fox News was blathering with stuff about “Doctuh King” tonight. I was forced to watch “The Music Man” on TCM just to get away from all that hooey.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        Once Upon a Time in the West is free on netflix. Worth multiple re-watchings that one. Bronson, Fonda (the non-commie), Robards, the gorgeous Claudia Cardinale…and a slew of great character actors. Holds up well, best p’sgetti western of them all, I think.

        Good option for sanity maintenance.

        • OlderWoman


          *grin* My baby sister used that word when she was a child. Thanks for the memory.

          • NorthSea

            In northern Wisconsin, it’s s’getti

        • stewball

          Never heard of that film. The non-commie? :lol.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            My favorite Sergio Leone/Spagetti Western. Masterful camerawork, hypnotizing pace, excellent use of actors. Henry Fonda (the non-commie, lol) as the psycopathic bad guy, Charles Bronson with his harmonica, Jason Robards as the charming rogue, Claudia Cardinale the widowed ex-prostitute.

            The Italians are all about style and though they overdid it in rip-offs by lesser talent, when it comes together like in this movie it really smacks you for a loop.

            His next best, in my opinion, was The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Filmed, like most, in southern Spain and Italy, starring Clint Eastwood (Blondie, the good), Lee van Cleef (the BAD), and Eli Wallach (a New York Jew and prominent stage actor of the time as “the Ugly”, a Mexican rogue). Very good flick, but doesn’t have the grand scope of Once Upon a Time. Dirtier and grittier.

          • stewball

            I’ve forgotten how to read. I thought you said Jane fonda!!

          • NeanderthalDNA

            It’s nice to have a pleasant conversation. You’ll notice I’m taking kind of a sanity break from here. It’s so easy to “Mel out” – you know, launch off into a sketchy, ugly, foul spirited tirade regarding forbidden conversational topics.

            I think the Jewish dominated Hollywood likes Mel Gibson despite or partly because of his mouth and tirades, lol. Since you Joos control everything, including Hollywood, and Mel Gibson is still working, he must amuse his Joo masters I suppose, ha ha! But the Jews really do seem to control Hollywierd. I wish the Coen brothers would do “Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West”, more commonly referred to as Just “Blood Meridian”. Written by Cormac McCarthey, best living American writer. Based on a real series of events in post Mexican American/pre Civil War northern Mexico.

            The Comanches are running rampant in norther Mexico – see an earlier article here on those guys…whew – and the Mexican gubbamint pays a bounty on every scalp, so some of the very gringo peckerwoods who had fought in Mexico recently, along with a motley crew of characters jaunt around Mexico scalping anyone they can get their hands on…and worse. Captain Glanton is sociopathic South Carolinian (shout out, woot woot!) and seeming leader, the kid is some poor sixteen year old from whose vantage the story is told, and the Judge, one of the most sinister and creepy and disgusting villains ever, is a surreal Satanic or Demiurge monster who advises Glanton and is a child murdering pederast. The gang’s barbarisms spiral downward, ever egged on and made more horrendous by the Judge, while the Kid comes of age.

            Beautiful prose describing Peckinpah-esque brutality, creepy and ugh, that last chapter is hard to read…

            So, nobody’s had the nads to try to make a movie about Blood Meridian. I think the Coen brothers could do it with the right actors, though.

    • mark eaves

      Don’t forget a follower of Gandhi.

    • MLK plagiarized his whole PhD dissertation. Ironically – and hilariously – it was a black doctoral student researching him who discovered this and told.

    • stewball

      To be honest I think he should get life. He wants the death sentence to be a Marty. Why give him the satisfaction? Let him rot on prison for the rest of his life. That would be worse for him.

  • sbuffalonative

    I believe that soon the so-called civil rights movement will be declared the second American revolution.

    It will be framed to invalidate everything that happened before by proclaiming that pre civil rights America was illegitimate and invalid having been founded on ‘racist’ ideals.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      Exactly. That’s the direction were headed in already. That’s obvious when a black charlatan who lived off the fat of the land and the naïveté of its populace is called “the greatest leader that the country has ever produced” rather than those who produced the country in the first place.

      Can any statement be more contemptible than that coming from that one-term loser and big-toothed peanut farming buffoon?

    • Jesse James

      I see it more as the second French revolution in terms of its radical ideology and the violence and chaos unleashed. If you read Lothrop Stoddard’s book about the French Revolution in Haiti you will find that the murder, rape, torture and displacement of the white French colonists in Haiti was instigated, supported and ultimately applauded by radical whites in France. It is impossible to read his history without seeing the parallels in the formerly white controlled countries of Africa and what is going in the United States today.

      • FormerlyEdNY

        It appears that they are doing the same thing to the Whites in South Africa and Rhodesia (Zimbabwe).

        • marula

          Far, far worse and for 19 years now!

          • FormerlyEdNY

            Oh yeah, the Whites of southern Africa have it much, much worse, there is no doubt about that. My point is that the left is using the same game plan against us and they have the same goals here as they do for the Whites of southern Africa and that is total destruction of the White race and culture!

        • YngveKlezmer

          Blacks everywhere intend to do this to us.

  • Puggg

    From what I can tell, this was nothing more than a rally against photo ID for voting. That’s all anyone there seems to care about.

    That successful businessman who doesn’t have to but pays his workers a fair wage

    That from a President that wants to bust the borders wide open to let millions more cheap labor Hispanics and others in, such that the “businessman who doesn’t have to buut does pay his workers a family sustaining wage or salary” is soon out of business.

  • Kronolog

    It’s hard to build something while you are marching.

    • What they don’t get is marching and rallying isn’t why they won and got what they wanted. It was because LBJ possessed immense political skill. But even if not for that, some form of the civil rights, voting rights, immigration liberalization and welfare programs passed during the LBJ years probably would have been enacted, because that’s the way The Powers That Be were pushing the society.

      Notice that most white western first world countries passed this kind of legislation during this general time period. And not all of them had expert politicians as heads of state. LBJ only existed in the United States.

      • So CAL Snowman

        Exactly, blacks marching around did absolutely nothing. If blacks marching around did anything, they wouldn’t be the poor, violent, miserable people they are.

        • MekongDelta69

          Hey, Hey, Hey – waddya mean, “blacks marching around did absolutely nothing”?

          It wore out the soles of their Air Jordan’s, thereby necessitating you paying more in taxes to pay for a brand spanking new pair of Air Jordan’s via their welfare payments.

          It also increased the crime rate perpetrated by all those ‘oppressed youfs’ who had to go around barefoot until they could beat the hell out of someone and take his brand spanking new Air Jordans.

          And you call that nothing?!?
          Geez Louise…

      • Romulus

        It goes back a little further than that. That little group of people instilled themselves in every western nation and including Russia. See Greg Felton’s book “the host and the parasite”; Henry ford’s famous book, the real Martin Luther’s seminal work.

    Virtually everything about this integrationist “lovefest” is disgusting, from the participation of LeAnn Rimes to idiot Jimmy Carter’s butt kissing of MLK. But the worst of it has to be the continued effort to turn Trayvon into a saint. The good part is the low attendence. Obama isn’t drawing the crowds like he used to. Why listen to his lies in person when you can read them on Drudge every day.

    • Speaking of Drudge, look at the Drudge report right now, (late afternoon early evening Wednesday). Today was a good day to be Matt Drudge. He has in clever combination of link form and clever juxtaposition embarrassed the whole event today.

    • Oldcorporal

      I was terribly shocked and disappointed to hear that LeAnn Rimes volunteered to be a part of that farce. She’s one of the finest singers of her generation, but her country music fans may not be happy with her for lending her talents to this obeisance to “the legacy of Doctuh King.”

      • FormerlyEdNY

        LeAnn Rimes is a certified nut case.

        • YngveKlezmer

          She cast her pearls before the Negroid swine. I don’t care how much money She was offered. She was wrong.

      • YngveKlezmer

        I was as well. I suspect that She was just trying to “look good” to secure her White Libtard fan base. This, though, is selling your soul to the devil. If She were a true White racial realist and a true Southern Patriot, She would have too much pride to lower herself by taking part in this Groidfest. She was casting her pearls before swine, in a most literal sense.

    • NorthSea

      Carter’s got more shadiness to his past than his false adulation of MLK. He and his NSA director Brzezinski helped precipitate the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the summer of 1979. Like a row of falling cards, that came back to bite us.

      • YngveKlezmer

        He is a spineless idiot. Southerners like Carter and Clinton make me sick. They have literally allowed the Negroids to bully them into submission.

    • Major

      Yep…only 25,000 they think.

    • YngveKlezmer

      Carter has always been a Negro loving, Black butt kissing wuss, just like Bill Clinton. Negroes love these types of Southern Whites, because they know that the handouts, courtesy of our tax dollars, are just around the corner when men like Clinton and Carter take the helm. If we ever did get a man like the late, great George Wallace or Merlin Miller into office, they know that they will have to work every day, as we Whites do, and that there will be no handouts based on bogus fantasies of White racism.

  • Evette Coutier

    At this point in time no one cares what MLK said or what Carter is saying. I am sick of whites trying to prove they are not racist by quoting MLK.

    • OlderWoman

      MLK was a fraud. Just like Carter and obama.

        I like Carter. At least he stood up to the peoplewhosenamemaynotbespoken.

    • ms_anthro

      Today on Facebook I unfriended every single White person that made a positive, gushy comment about MLK. It felt great.

      • Romulus

        I applaud you! You have the strength of heart like the shieldmaidens of. old.

      • Jesse James

        That is a good example for the rest of us, we need to have the courage of our convictions and start letting our friends and family know that we are no longer willing to ignore either their racial stupidity or self serving racial treachery to go without challenge. Shun those who are helping in our genocide and displacement.

      • Evette Coutier

        I did something like that a few years ago. You will never look back nor will you regret it. How can someone be a true friend who puts the welfare of the Bantu’ s before yours.

      • ncpride

        I asked my kids if their teachers in any of their classes brought up MLK today, and not a single one did. They got on with the lessons they started on Monday. HA! I know it’s hard to believe, but there are a few really good, un-PC public schools left, and my kids are lucky enough to attend them. What the state of even these schools will be in 20 more years is anyone’s guess.

      • itdoesnotmatter

        Good on you, ms anthro.

        • ms_anthro

          You’re probably right, but I like to use Facebook to both keep in touch with old friends, many of whom are scattered around the globe, and gently spread the truth in a positive, loving way. Every so often I quietly “Like” an article that controverts the leftist narrative and it loses me a friend or two. But those Likes also start interesting discussions, sometimes private, sometimes not. Facebook is just another soapbox if you know how to use it.

          Does anyone here think they’re not already on a dozen different lists just by virtue of reading and posting on AmRen and other similar sites? I’m open about my views. It’s not always easy for me socially or professionally, but I sleep well at night. And nothing is more valuable than that.

      • FormerlyEdNY

        • OlderWoman

          I joined, then immediately cancelled my membership. It was too intrusive and it posted personal sensitive information about me.

          It’s for people who have nothing to do but watch television and worship film stars…in other words, it’s for shallow people.

        • NorthSea

          None whatsoever, unless you fancy photos of cats, dogs, and appeals for friendship from people of whom you have no idea.

      • OlderWoman

        I downvoted every comment that made a ‘positive, gushy comment about MLK. It felt great.”

        I also reminded them that he adopted a God-fearing, fine ‘charactered’ WHITE mans name.

    • FormerlyEdNY

      Carter is just happy that he is no longer considered the worst President in the history of the USA.

    Peter and Paul, from the singing trio Peter, Paul and Mary, took to the stage to sing the Bob Dylan hit ‘Blowin’ in the Wind,’ which they sung in front of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 – a performance that turned the song into an anthem for interracial relations.

    – Steve Nolan and Lydia Warren, Daily Mail (London), August 28, 2013

    That’s a distortion, he wanted each person to be judged on their individual merits and not on their race. Racial equality is a delusion. Equal opportunity will never create racial equality rather it will do just the opposite and expose racial inequality. The NBA is 80 percent black thanks to equal opportunity and other occupations are mainly white because of equal opportunity. Racial equality does not exist.

    All the insane communist rhetoric in the world isn’t going to make these sub-apes the equal of white Europeans.

    Of course blacks really don’t want equality which would mean that equal expectations were put on them, they simply want an “equal” share of what you and I work hard to create. This is the mentality of all the simpletons to which communism appeals.

    From “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars”:
    The primary reason why the individual citizens of a country create a political structure is a subconscious wish or desire to perpetuate their own dependency relationship of childhood. Simply put, they want a human god to eliminate all risk from their life, pat them on the head, kiss their bruises, put a chicken on every dinner table, clothe their bodies, tuck them into bed at night, and tell them that everything will be alright when they wake up in the morning.

    This public demand is incredible, so the human god, the politician, meets incredibility with incredibility by promising the world and delivering nothing. So who is the bigger liar? the public? or the “godfather”?

    This public behavior is surrender born of fear, laziness, and expediency. It is the basis of the welfare state as a strategic weapon, useful against a disgusting public.

    King was forced to advocate a policy of non-violence, because in his day had he resorted to what is occurring right now by militant hate-filled blacks the entire race in the US would have been wiped from the face of the earth in a white backlash of absolute rage, such was the attitude of whites back then.

    Had he lived in today’s environment I have no doubt he would sound no differently than Al, Jesse, Jeremiah Wright, Michael Dyson, et al, spewing anti-white hate rhetoric with every breath.

    He advocated non-violence and getting along, because he had to not because of any high sense of morality.

    And, if 90% of blacks were decimated somehow today, you can be assured unequivocally in the aftermath of it Jesse, Al, et al, would be preaching the same kind of MLK love and tolerance instead of the violent hate they presently preach.

    • Tarczan

      I don’t believe he really advocated non violence; rather he espoused it and knew there would be riots in all the cities he spoke at after he left. He just paid lip service to nonviolence to give himself cover. I believe he approved the rioting.

  • I think all of these black on white crimes is a good thing. One white victim results in a thousand former white liberals, and a thousand new white nationalists.

    On a different site about that Oberlin hoax, I got 318 thumbs up and 24 thumbs down on my comment. I pointed out Renee Vaughan as an example. I know she wants people to forget her name, but I’m not letting it happen, plus the interracial rape rate. Some black liberal tried to ask where I got my facts, but a few other commenters defended me by saying my stats are pretty accurate.

    • Glickstein44

      The only time black on White crime is a good thing is when the White victim is a self-hating White liberal without any chance of being socially redeemed or of gaining their White identity back.

  • Glickstein44

    Obama previously said that half a century after the march was a good
    time to reflect on how far the country has to go, particularly after the
    Trayvon Martin shooting trial in Florida. The devastated parents and
    brother of the slain teen also attended the D.C. event on Wednesday.

  • Today was nothing more than liberals spouting their boilerplate laundry lists of left wing talking points. That there was one “conservative” celebrating today tells you all you need to know about “conservatism.” And as you can read in this article, there was at least one.

    We sometimes hear that MLK was a “true conservative” (insert laugh tracks here), and now some are starting to say that MLK was a “libertarian at heart.” (The same MLK who had nothing but scorn for Barry Goldwater.) If so, then were were all the conservatives, right-libertarians and standard libertarians invited to speak today?

  • OT

    Mark Potok said this today, H/T OD:

    “Are we any better off than we were 50 years ago? Absolutely. The legal chains that held African Americans in bondage for most of their history in this country are broken. White dominance is on the decline as the demographic white majority heads for oblivion over the course of the next 30 years.

    So in Mark Potok’s “mind,” the essence of being “better off” is that black people have their run of the joint we used to call “America” and also that white people are being dispossessed of their own country and relegated to minority status and powerlessness. This begs the question: He writes, “Are WE any better off than we were 50 years ago? Absolutely.” Who’s “we?” The implication you have to draw from the semantics he uses is that Potok is writing this to appeal to a constituency that defines being better off in terms of white people being worse off. Almost as if that constituency does and is expected to write checks payable to SPLC in perpetuity.

    • Tinfoil A22hat

      It would be nice if we could retreat somewhere to leave all of these blacks and browns to their own admitted dream world, and also their own devices. They should be careful what they wish for. I’d love to see it.

    But no, on with the propaganda.

  • Spartacus

    “President Carter gave thanks to Dr King not for just helping to freeing black people but for ‘helping to free all people’.

    ‘He was the greatest leader that my native state–and my native
    country–has ever produced and I was not excluding presidents and the
    founding fathers when I said this,’ he said. ‘There’s a tremendous
    agenda ahead of us and I’m thankful to Martin Luther King that his dream
    is still alive.”


    America has so many great men in it’s history – men who built gigantic dams and building, men who split the atom, men who stepped on the Moon, men who conquered and tamed an entire continent,men who invented the internet(Al Gore not being among them)… And they’re all dwarfed by a whore-mongering communist ?

      The “great work” that these people are working towards is a “new world order”. In laymen’s terms a global, socialist, totalitarian “utopia” run by …. of course… them. The celebrity and politico attendee list reads like a who’s who of communism. Make no mistake, blacks and browns are the easiest types to dupe into collectivism with the promise of free sail foam and some food scramps. They are also useful in making the middle class demand the militarized police state which will eventually be turned on their ultimate destruction.
      At the end of the day, MLK was just another monkey dancing to the tune of the same organ grinders that have been playing the socialist revolution game for centuries.

    If the last fifty years has shown us anything it is that: genetics and race does matter and that Mr. King had it inverted; Blacks don’t want to be judged by the content of their character but by the color of their skin, as long as racial preferences for Blacks is included.

As in so much else the only way out is through. I can’t see the one way race war going on much longer before whites organize as vigilantes throughout the country.

    The ‘civil rights’ movement will NEVER be over–it’s not about equality now, but, ongoing retribution for being White.

    Civil rights means income and wealth distribution, reparations that will never stop…and the crushing of the White culture, which is considered evil and irrelevant.

    Civil rights means forcing Whites to the bottom of the social order, to be discriminated against, attacked, murdered and ultimately eliminated for the good of society…remember, literally everything evil from the beginning of time was the fault of Whites.

    That’s MY take of ‘civil rights’. No Apologies.

    Most Blacks believe that lefties and their anti-white policies are the only protection they’ve got against against evil, racist whites.

    What blacks don’t seem to understand is that it is degenerate Marxist agitators like MLK, the NY Times, Hollywood, the music industry, the NAACP, the CBC, fake black “preachers”, and the Democrat Party that have done the most damage to America’s black community, far more damage than the entire white community working together could have inflicted.

    read “The French Revolution in San Domingo” by Lothrop Stoddard. Although it was originally published in 1914 a new edition was published with a forward by Kevin MacDonald. It is a very well written and fascinating account. I checked the AMREN book section and they offer a version for sale. The French colonists who escaped the massacre and made it back to France were spit upon, beaten by mobs and sometimes arrested by their own countrymen. There was very little sympathy for them and no help.

    • marula

      He is a Muslim.(Both he and his spouse publicly confirmed it.) His activities are endlessly mistaken by the American right as Socialism. It is not. It is a redistribution of wealth from the largely White Tax-paying section of society to the hoods. It is the redistribution of wealth from White to Black. It is pure and simple Racism.

      • Jesse James

        I have pointed out the redistribution from blacks to whites in a several recent AMREN posts but the mechanisms for doing so are communistic reminiscent of those used by the Soviet Union and Red China in the 20th Century first to dispossess their feudal aristocracies of their wealth, influence and often lifes. Once those classes were destroyed they went to work on the middle classes and even the prosperous peasantry (kulaks). In the case of modern America this process had been facilitated by hard core white communists and the much more numerous “useful idiots” of the progressive left.

        Blacks benefit of course in the destructive chaos the left is using but only because once it was realized that the American workers in general had been bought off by the delivery of a decent standard of living in mid-20th century America, the communists required another force to provide street and societal chaos. Since the white worker could not be used as the spearhead of the revolution in the streets of America, the black race in particular and non-whites in general were turned to by the communists to provide the muscle, disruption and chaos needed to change the existing system through violence and intimidation. The blacks of course have benefited from this arrangement greatly but they certainly didn’t create or enable the strategy.

        • FormerlyEdNY

          Well written and I mostly agree. The communists are definitely intent on destroying the American family. They are also removing God and religion from the equation. This same playbook has been used before as you have pointed out.

            The Lefties are enabling the “Negroization” of the entire American culture, and have been doing so for the past 50 years. That march on DC, 50 years ago, signaled the beginning of the end to Whites who were over roughly 30 at that time. I need not specify Whites who were racial realists, as racial realism was the norm for our people until this time period. The dying off of these great older Generations, and the ascendancy of the Generation of Whites who were then under 30, many of whom broke ranks with their elders on race issues, is a major reason why our country is in such a mess these days. Many of the White Libtards who went Down South to miscegenate and party with the Negroes in the 60’s are now Grandparents who teach their Grandchildren to be “colorblind”, the worst thing one can teach a White child in this day and age. The sooner a child understands that Blacks are our enemy, and to never trust a Negro, the better off they are.

        Right on the money. Like all Negroes, everything is about race with this President. We could see this plainly when he defended thug Trayvon Martin shamlessly, and made up lies about Black men being followed in stores, etc. How many Whites would have the courage, these days, to actually do this, with the loss of livelihood that could result?? In the good old days, they were followed as they should have been, but not every Black man was followed this way by every White. Everything is about race with this idiot, as is the case with all Blacks. When Whites put this front and center when dealing with Blacks, we cease to trust Negroes, and become racial realists.

      • Stentorian_Commentator

        I hav heard allegations along those lines, but I thought it had more to do with doctors testing a Hepatitis B vaccine on chimps in the 1970s, and somehow the SIV got mixed up in something injected into a homo, and mutated into HIV. That actually strikes me as more plausible, only because unless you have homo apes, they’d rip your gonads right off, and there’d be nothing you could do about it.

        • One doesn’t even need to go that far. The bush meat trade is partly responsible. If the rain forest wood is wet, freshly-killed bush meat can’t be cooked properly. Eating another primate is a damned bad idea anyway, because almost anything is can have is very likely to be something a person can catch. The SIV/HIV viruses also mutate astoundingly quickly, so it’s perfectly suited to jumping species among primates. The only African wildlife I would be less inclined to eat is a bat, because these form a reservoir for filoviruses (Ebola, Marburg, Lassa). The Reston virus is a similar one that doesn’t affect humans, but is an Ebola relative, with some unknown animal reservoir in the Philippines; the cynomolgus monkeys it killed in a Virgina lab were not from Africa at all, probably in tropical bats.

            You can’t get aids from eating something. Bats also carry rabies.

          • Whitetrashgang

            Aids has been around for 10s of thousands years and started with blacks eating monkeys brains while they were still alive .Eat something HIV and you will have a good chance of getting it.

      • YngveKlezmer

        Precisely. Negro perverts like MLK acquired AIDS, literally, in the throes of beasteality. In a properly segregated society with the penalty for rape being the death penalty, AIDS would be a 99.9% Negroid issue.

        Oh my. What stories are you being fed and you believe them!!! Even if such a story was true how did a white American get it.

    • stewball

      That’s so ridiculous. The first person who had HIV infected gays at a bath house. The medical people who tracked it down know exactly where it started and who started it.

  • Greatest leader???? Yea, a plagiarizer, fornicator, adulterer, and he even stole from his donations in order to have wild sex parties that would last for days. Some how that doesn’t seem to be what a great leader makes. The guy was a bum. He also hired black thugs to start fights with whites during his peaceful marches and than blame the whites for the altercations when the whites were just defending themselves. Martin Luther King JR (his name was actually Michael King JR) was a beast. Being that he was black according to the bible he is called the “beast of the field,” and he sure lived up to that name. Whites (Israel) are not to be ruled by blacks or any other race. They are only to be ruled by Israel.

    • Bossman

      I see that you’re a believer in mythology. As for MLK, he was a leader because he could get a lot of people to follow him. A leader is one who can get people to accept his message and to follow him.

      • No you believe in mythology if you believe Martin Luther King Jr. (his true name was Michael King Jr) was a great leader. King was a moral degenerate which does not qualify him to be a great leader. he did not get a lot of people to accept his message, the media did that for him by lying to the people and by not doing what they were called to do; and that is, to hide the truth about his debauchery. it is no myth that Martin Luther King Jr. (His real name was Michael King Jr) was a fornicator, and adulterer, and a plagiarizer. The Jews rule our government, and they wanted Martin Luther King Jr (his real name is Michael King Jr) to be a rabble rouser in order to bring blacks into power. It is a direct violation for white people (Israel) to be ruled by any other people than whites (Israel). Deuteronomy 17:15.

      • Sick of it

        If you believe MLK was a leader in his own time, then you are accusing him of masterminding the black on white violence in the same time period. Either he was leading those people or he was not.

  • disqus_Xz3UA6obwj

    Equal opportunity for all does nothing more than expose racial inequality. What a terrible conundrum for the deluded egalitarian liberals to be in – which is exactly why they cling to racist affirmative action while pretending to support equal opportunity when in fact their behavior clearly proves they support unequal opportunity.

    • jane johnson

      What they’re looking for is equal results, and that’s impossible no matter how much money and effort are expended. So they cling to the “institutional racism” lie so that their egalitarian delusions can survive a reality check.

  • FormerlyEdNY

    This is nothing but communist-socialist propaganda and misinformation. These people are hell bent on destroying our country and they are doing an excellent job at achieving their goals.

  • Yale2001

    MLK was the greatest leader? Really?? He cheated on his dissertation, he cheated on multiple reports, he was known to have prostitutes and abuse them. We have audio of profane rants against president Kennedy, and this is the info leaked. The worst of this will not be released until 2025. If he were white, he would have never received a doctorate and no one would call him “reverend”.

  • Bardon Kaldian

    President Carter gave thanks to Dr King not for just helping to freeing black people but for ‘helping to free all people’.
    ‘He was the greatest leader that my native state–and my native
    country–has ever produced and I was not excluding presidents and the
    founding fathers when I said this,’ he said.

    He ….. nuts.

    • Jack Burton

      He’s a PoS and a panderer.

      What you have to keep in mind about Carter is he is emotionally Negrophilic. He was raised around black workers (he has admitted this), so he has an emotional bond with them from his childhood and sees them as victims that need his help.

  • Earl Turner

    Still marching, huh? Why don’t you jigaboos march on back to Africa and stay there!

  • David Ashton

    What one should have expected from a former President is a balanced, statesmanlike evaluation, which points out the failures of blacks to grasp the opportunities provided and warn them to curb their own promiscuity and criminality which are prime reasons for white “prejudice”, and to attack the welfare-liberalism and ideological-leftism of white people that have done nobody any real favors in the long-term for the USA. An opportunity lost in an orgy of psychpathic masochism and demagogic drivel.

    The “peanut” no longer a joke about the brain of a President who believed in flying saucers.

    Was this MLK Day or something? I haven’t been paying attention. I gave up TV years ago and if I hadn’t read Amren and Drudge, I wouldn’t have even known this speech had happened. Maybe I need to give up all these internet news and commentary sites as well.

    I suffer from extreme apathy when it comes to things like what Obama said about MLK. I have my own variation of “Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out.” It’s “Tune Out, Turn Off, Drop Out.” I guess you could call it “mental secession.”

  • NorthSea

    Yup, and once Napoleon was in power he re-instituted slavery.

  • David

    Everybody that thinks blacks are less intelligent, have lower income and are often criminal because of whites should support black seperatism with equal rights .If biological they are equal the solution is very simple.

    Whites and blacks that say they think they are equal but don’t want them to segregrate to stop the IQ, income suppression is a liar.

    You could also make a shared state together with seperated state for whites and blacks so that when blacks think they are getting brain damage from the whites they can get back to there own state….

    • Jack Burton

      That’s right, because in many ways White liberalism is just a different kind of slavery, they want to speak for blacks and control blacks.

      The only true salvation for blacks is their own sovereignty and freedom to control their destiny. I support black separatism and black militant groups to achieve those ends. Of course the majority of them are mentally ill and psychopathic, but if they can herd the blacks together and get them to willingly emigrate then I’m all for it.

      • Sloppo

        The problem with most black nationalists is that their movement is driven by pure hatred and envy. If they wanted separation like we do, their goal would have already been achieved. They already have about 50 countries which they fully control, but that doesn’t begin to satisfy them because whites still have abilities and possessions that they envy. They’re not about to voluntarily allow whites to peacefully live in separation from their violence. And if they succeed in killing/pushing whites off this planet and whites somehow establish an off-planet solution for themselves that works like in the movie “Elysium”, that will not be good enough either.

        • Jack Burton

          Obviously they’re raving lunatics, but I’m not judging the merits of their arguments which are nonsensical, just that most blacks are stupid and go along with their racial group so black separatism is in line with our goals of removing as much of the black population as possible. What happens to them beyond that point is their problem.

      • ed

        Emigrate? I don’t think that is going to happen. Listen, if American whites want to stay American whites they are going to have to make concessions.

        We’re going to have to give up some of the land in the southern black belt. Simple as that. Now there are more than likely southerners against that, but the choice may be give up some of the south or give up the entire US.

        • Jack Burton

          America is never going to be all White again nor pro-White. That’s a pipe dream, because we have a significant portion of the White population that are just pathologically anti-White and work against their own people. It’s not just Jews either. When you look at the history of this country, Yankees have played the primary role in our current situation, not Jews. Jews have added to the pathology and certainly hold disproportionate control of the media, but they are not the sole problem.

          It is feasible that a certain portion of the USA will secede into a White ethnostate, if we are to survive at all. In that case blacks and other non-Whites will emigrate to the liberal states.

          Black militants can work out their dream of having a portion of the US for themselves from the libs.

  • NorthSea

    I’m an upper Midwesterner as well, who had ancestors die in both armies of the Civil War. Am extremely skeptical of the necessity for that bloodbath, close to 700,000 Americans killed.

  • Jack Burton

    I keep hearing these comments from conservative talk show hosts that Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, etc have made a mockery of MLK and the civil rights movement. No they haven’t, MLK was just like them, he was a charlatan. This is the natural outcome of all of that garbage.

    If MLK were alive today he would be just like them. The only reason he wasn’t more aggressive and obnoxious like Sharpton and the rest, is because he had speech writers, he was trained, organized and funded by communist Jews and the White people of his time hadn’t degenerated to the spineless wimps of today so his approach had to appeal more to our sympathies. Now that we are psychologically conquered and the media control is total, they are free to be as aggressive as they want.

    • All you have to know is that MLK’s lieutenants, such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Ralph Abernathy, not to mention his own family, aren’t “conservatives” of any sort today. The only one who sorta is is one of his nieces Alveda King, and only because she’s jealous that she was sorta left on the outside looking in on the family, as Jared Taylor said, milking the “dream.”

      Speaking of milking the dream, JT also noted that MLK could afford to be the nice “we just want freedom and equality” black preacher/activist because those were the circumstances of his times and environment. But by the time he was assassinated, there was pressure on him from more radical black groups and movements to be more extreme.

      • Jack Burton

        I just said that.

        Also, interesting to note, that according to Obama’s own words in his autobiography, he was never a black radical until he went to college and liberal Whites radicalized him. He found that they liked him more when he was a black radical. Prior to that he was raised like a spoiled White kid and wasn’t from the disadvantaged ghetto.

  • YngveKlezmer

    From the few snippets I saw of this typical Negroid circus, I got a laugh out of the stupidity of a couple of Black speakers referring to Lincoln as The Great Emancipator. A great man he was indeed, and precisely because he was a White racial realist and segregationist. If good old Abe had had his way, all of the Negroes would have been sent back to Africa where they belong. He was a humanitarian indeed. He cared about Whites, and the preservation of our culture, and spoke often about the incompatibility of Negroes with Whites, and the importance of sending them back to Africa, as they would never be able to live in peace with us. Lincoln was an astute man who had a complete understanding of the Negro temperament, thus, his strong convictions that they are not compatible with us.

  • YngveKlezmer

    So ironic. They are the ones who think nothing of shooting their racial brethren just for the money to go buy an Escalade, instead of working hard every day, and buying whatever vehicle they can afford. To most of us working White folks, a car, in this day and age, is transportation, and nothing else.

  • Gilbert Jacobi

    In honor of the anniversary, here’s my dream/take on the speech.

    I dream that Americans one day soon will come to understand that the negro was supported rather than crippled by the breathing space provided by segregation, and that the truth-seeking eye of discrimination furnished an essential commentary upon his behavior, a commentary the lack of which has proven disastrous both to his self restraint and to the peace and orderliness of society.

    That 50 years ago negroes lived in self-sufficient communities composed of intact families within which was fostered the drive to succeed rather than complain, to improve oneself rather than esteem oneself, to obey the law rather than flout it.

    King claimed variously that the negro was either “liv[ing] on a lonely island of poverty” or “languishing in the corners of American society”. Leaving aside the geographic confusion, what the negro had In fact was his place. And his place was HIS – from Harlem, New York, to Bronzeville in Chicago – every city had its all-black haven where whites did not go and where blacks were left to themselves. Emotionally, psychically, blacks knew their place, too, and took quiet pride in it, precisely because it was based on real achievement, diligent attention to the laborious process of pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps, and virtuous sacrifice for the future. And the strong roof over the negro’s place was, in the one truth that managed to slip into King’s speech, his “faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.” 50 years ago the negro was no “exile”, as King claimed. He was, however, certainly, blessedly, less visible, especially when compared to the garish, deafening, ubiquitous presence of “African Americans” today.

    I dream that whites will pay attention to King’s use of the curious and revealing metaphor of the “check” in his speech. ….”[W]e have come to our nation’s capital to cash a check” King says, and after some folderol about liberty and justice, gets to the real agenda: though the check has “insufficient funds”, nevertheless the check “will give us UPON DEMAND the riches of freedom….” etc., etc. As our middle class disappears and our dollar sinks to pennies of its 1963 value, how bitterly have we learned the literal truth hidden in King’s poetic sounding demands!

    Note, too, my fellow Americans, the emphasis on seizing the moment in King’s oration, “the fierce urgency of now” as he put it. After another purple rampage through valleys of segregation and quicksands of injustice King rests for a moment on a rock. Not just any rock, mind you, but the “solid rock of brotherhood.” O hollow promise! Then he gets to business. It would be “fatal” not to yield to “the urgency of the moment.” The negro’s “discontent will not pass”; “1963 is not an end, but a beginning”; and Americans who hope for “tranquility” had better hope for something else. Then comes the most naked threat of all. If the demands of his aroused followers are not met, Americans can expect “[t]he whirlwinds of revolt.” And, charging through the door opened by King and his communist tutors, his followers would make good on his threat, over and over again in the decades to come.

    Some may care to entertain the question of whether King was sincere in his admonition to negroes to eschew hatred and physical violence. I do not. King, who was witnessed in a brawl with a prostitute the night before he died, does not deserve the benefit of the doubt in this. He knew his people, knew the situation in the streets was explosive, like his people, like himself. He begins the speech’s vaunted dream motif with a lie, the lie that his dream of racial integration is “deeply rooted in the American dream.” This is uttered in front of the statue of a man who thought the best solution to the negro question was to send them back to Africa! Listen to the words of his dream for Alabama: ….”Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification … .” If this is not hatred, it certainly is not brotherhood. And why is it that the insatiable philanderer King gets the most worked up just here, when the hitherto most forbidden fruit is exposed for the crowd’s delectation, when “little black boys” get to join hands with “little white girls”? Oh, as sisters and brothers, of course. Sure.

    King ends his hallucinatory speech with the hackneyed bells of freedom clanging everywhere. A bell began to ring all right, on that day in 1963. The bell was not freedom’s but the church bell for a nation’s doom.

    I don’t think “ethnomasochism and pathological altruism” – terms I like and am going to use somewhere – were what was operating with these French radicals. There was a party in England about this time which avidly supported the French Revolution, even while France and England were at war. I think you just have certain people who enjoy the destruction of anything old. There was an outbreak of a similar sentiment in 20th century America which resulted in the “urban renewal” movement, during which thousands of worthy, if not always “historical”, old buildings were destroyed. That, in tandem with the craze for building low rent high-rises where the old buildings stood, to warehouse the influx of negroes rushing to cash MLK’s check for free living, resulted in a blight, architectural and human, from which our cities never recovered. One can see stirrings of this feeling rising again in the euthanasia movement.
