Al Sharpton again proves his lack of basic common sense. His interpretation of Rev. King’s words are in the very least, disrespectful to his memory:
Here’s a piece of Rev King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. Does this sound like he supports government plundering of the private wealth of individuals?
“When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
King knew of the division of our republic –where you and I live and exist—and the inner workings of our democratic process –authorized, sanctified and enumerated under the Constitution.
I call for Sharpton and other race-baters to stop distorting history and to rejoin people of all colors in our fight for Liberty.
The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.
Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.
Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate.... Returning violence for violence multiples violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
