How my Pat Buchanan-loving father hated Martin Luther King, Jr. My father would have been very comfortable with the modern-day Republican Party. In many ways, he anticipated its platform, a return to Victorian-era mores; DADT could have been written by him: keep it in the closet where it belongs.


*


He was fond of saying that there were no fags in HIS Navy, meaning, not literally, that there were no sailors with same-sex preferences but that such sailors were smart enough to keep it to themselves and in their pants, because in the “good old days” there was nothing stopping homophobic sailors like him from meting out the just punishment of God to those who dared to be different.


*


It was a white man’s America, he grew up in. The Jews were the enemy; fags were the enemy; women were the enemy (he spoke, as he grew older, of being freed from the “tyranny of the pussy”); the blacks were the enemy; and white folks whispered their fears of having a genealogical “n*gger in the wood pile.” Martin Luther King, Jr., they whispered, hated white people but he loved to have sex with white women.

First of all, why are we shocked? They’ve already turned radical liberal Thomas Paine, who died penniless as a result of his opposition to their religion, into one of them. They’ve done the same to Thomas Jefferson, who was called an “infidel” by his own era’s Evangelicals.


*


Conservatives love to misremember things: race, as is the case with MLK, religion, as with Thomas Jefferson, social injustice, as with Thomas Paine, and of course, most strikingly of all, Jesus himself, turning the man who damned the rich to hell into a spokesperson for plutocracy. King, too, apparently, despite these words:

Yeah, I screwed that one up. Even though they're in the link, let me help you out with that one:


*
<blockquote>A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say: “This is not just.”</blockquote>

Thanks. *

Prophesy.


*


Just keep in mind, the "One World" exists, its monied class has no allegiance to anything but monetary profit, the monied class and politicians have used the media to convince citizens that they really are "consumers," most citizens have no problem being consumers as long as they have the wherewithal to consume what they want to consume, "consumers" have been thoroughly confused as to the difference between cost and price, and the ultimate overlords of the stealth One World Government are the international bankers.


*


One more achievement of those for whom the love of money is the prime directive: They've convinced the "consumers" that their enemies are other consumers, and split any meaningful opposition to their tyranny into opposing camps, whether Ds vs Rs or "pro-lifers" vs. "pro-choicers," and every *other political or social dichotomy imaginable.


*


Meanwhile, while the consumers are at each other's throats, the power of the One World Government continues growing along with the worldwide escalation of debt.


*


It's that simple, and more sinister and pervasive than even a good prophet like MLK could have imagined some 50 years ago.

Another article by you, from the same sites, that views facts and accuracy as substandard journalism.


*


Paine died, and not penniless, read his will, as a man reviled. The difference between 1809, when he died, and today is the demonstration of how wholesale tolerance is a weakness. When you bashed a nation of Christians, bashed Washington, Jefferson, the Bible, and displayed severe bouts of public drunkenness, *in this era, you did it to yourself. Paine’s, obituary, "He had lived long, did some good and much harm.”


*


Jefferson was called an infidel by some, but with 61% of the popular vote, I don’t think he or the country was too concerned with a few name callers. *


*


King believed in what Democrats hate: unalienable rights that cannot be regulated, and God. *


*


What did King think the American dream was: “that each individual has certain basic rights that are neither conferred by nor derived from the state. To discover where they came from it is necessary to move back behind the dim mist of eternity, for they are God-given.… The American dream reminds us that every man is heir to the legacy of worthiness…all “would be guaranteed the ‘unalienable Rights’ of ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.’”


*


Who was King fighting against? The Democrats that blocked the doors of schools to prevent black children from entering; the Democrats that turned fire hoses on blacks in the streets; the Democrats that turned attack dogs on blacks in the streets; the Democrats that lynched blacks; and the Democrats that fought against the rights of blacks.


*


It is no wonder that King voted for Eisenhower, who if you are not sure, was a Republican.

<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote">I’ve had a hard time coming to terms with RN, as Richard Nixon liked to refer to himself in his more imperial moods. It may sound odd, but the more I immersed myself in his pre-presidential life in the course of*writing a book*(in other words, before Watergate, Vietnam, and China), the more annoyed I became with him. Sometimes I had an urge to scold him—to tell him to do what he surely knew was right rather than go for the quick political advantage. This urge was never stronger than when it involved his relationship with Martin Luther King Jr., whose birthday (he would have been 84 on Feb. 15) is commemorated this month as a federal holiday—the same month as Nixon’s centennial was marked. There once was a real connection between the two men, but it more or less ended with RN’s spineless behavior during the 1960 presidential campaign, after Dr. King was arrested on phony charges stemming from a traffic violation. Coretta Scott King had been terrified; she worried with good reason that her husband might be killed en route to Georgia State Prison in Reidsville, and she appealed to the Nixon and John F. Kennedy campaigns to intervene.


*


Nixon, however, demurred; he said that it would be “grandstanding” to speak out, according to his aide William Safire. Nixon’s real motive, though, seems clear: it was a close election and he was willing to lose black support if it meant gaining a new harvest of white votes in the once-Democratic south. Eight years later, this approach became the carefully considered “Southern strategy.”</blockquote>
