Some thoughts as we remember Dr King this day.
Yup, that is right, he was a Republican, not a Democrat. People forget that as well as the fact that it was the Democratic Party that opposed what he stood for.
Let's start with what he did in Alabama. From November 1874 to January 1987, the governor was a Democrat. The Democrats controlled the legislature that created the 1875 & 1901 state constitutions as well as the Jim Crow Laws that enshrined racial segregation. It is also safe to say that most of those in charge on the local level as well as the judges of the 50s & 60s were Democrats as well.
He was indicted, convicted & jailed for his part in the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 55-56. When he was arrested in Birmingham in 63, George Wallace, a Democrat, was governor. He is remembered for the line in his 1st inaugural speech where he said "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."
It was under Kennedy & Johnson that J. Edgar Hoover did all the digging into his life trying to prove & failing, that King was a communist so that Hoover could destroy his effectiveness as a civil rights leader.
Sadly, King was taken in by Planned Parenthood when he accepted their Margaret Sanger Award in 1966. Actually Coretta King accepted it for him. His niece, Alveda King, as well as her mother, Naomi Barber King (MLK's sister-in-law) have made it clear he was Pro-life. The fact is, the award was a part if Planned Parenthood's ongoing implementation of Sanger's Negro Project, using black leaders to disguise her racist eugenics policy.
Rev. King did what he did based on his Christian faith. His example stands as a shining light to guide us in the Pro-life movement who are fighting to put an end to abortion. He would definitely be speaking out against abortion & would especially be decrying those black leaders who are helping the abortion industry kill off blacks & other minorities (See Maafa 21
