Thomas Moran (whose name is obviously misspelled) and Kathleen Parker have decided, this weekend, to “school” all you uppity Negroes on how race and prejudice works, and, since you darkies is all too stupid to understand this, Moran also explains what Martin Luther King, Jr. actually meant, and how ashamed he would be of all of you.
MLK ‘I have a dream’ August 28, 1963
The most remarkable and believable “channelling” since Jane Roberts met Seth™. But(t) first, Kathleen Parker’s timeless White, Blonde, Privileged wisdom [emphasis added]:
Obama’s race remarks exacerbate tensions
By Kathleen Parker
The Washington Post
If I had a son, he would look like Christopher Lane, the 22-year-old Australian baseball player shot dead while jogging in Oklahoma.
If I had a father, he’d look like Delbert Belton, the 88-year-old World War II veteran beaten to death in Spokane, Wash.
[self-serving sleazy "correction" to mask the upcoming racist remarks skipped over ... see below.]
These are all true statements if we identify ourselves and each other only by the color of our skin, which increasingly seems to be the case. Even our president has done so.
Barack Obama helped lead the way when he identified himself with the parents of Trayvon Martin, shot by George Zimmerman in the neighborhood-watch catastrophe with which all are familiar. Stepping out from his usual duties of drawing meaningless red lines in the Syrian sand, the president splashed red paint across the American landscape …
Republican pundit brainstorming session
Or in Parkerese: Our Uppity, Uppity Negro President. It’s all HIS fault!
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
In so saying, he essentially gave permission for all to identify themselves by race with the victim or the accused. How sad, as we approach the 50th anniversary of the march Martin Luther King Jr. led on Washington, that even the president resorts to judging not by the content of one’s character but by the color of his skin — the antithesis of the great dream King articulated.
Ah yes. The ONLY part of Dr. King’s speech that any white person actually knows, and knows how to use to bash uppity negroes with in any debate. Bravo, Barbie!
You iggorant [sic] negroes! How come Barbie Doll Blonde Kathleen Parker knows EXACTLY what Dr. King was about, but YOU don’t get it? You RACIST negroes, you!
[President Obama] essentially gave permission for all to identify themselves by race with the victim or the accused. How sad
So, we’re SERIOUSLY back to the old “BLACKS ARE THE RACISTS! OBAMA HATES WHITE PEOPLE! WHITES IS PURE AS THE DRIVEN SNOW!” narrative that feeble-minded, disgusting and/or criminally insane pundits love to use ever since old McCrankypants got his ass kicked by voters like me?
Kathleen Parker, “expert” on race
relations and Martin Luther King, Jr.
And, clearly you negro presidents are way too stupid to know how the world works. Just LISTEN to this anecdote that PROVES you are hallucinating about being profiled:
… but as a black man who remembers women clutching their purses tighter when he entered an elevator and being followed in department stores. All because he was black?
Even today, I am followed when I go to the second floor of a boutique in Georgetown
Apparently, store policy requires that an attendant be upstairs when a shopper is. The way department store clerks follow me around, you’d think my face was plastered on a “Wanted for Shoplifting” poster. This is especially so if I’m dressed like a slob.
Gee, wonder which “boutique” that was? But, as we all know, a single example refutes an historical, wide-spread and innumerably exampled fact of any sort. Don’t you Negroes know that? Wait! She conducted a “scientific experiment”!!!
In my 20s, I conducted an experiment when I had the opposite problem. No clerk would help me. It occurred to me that my ratty jeans and T-shirt might be the problem, so I went home, changed into a dress, and returned. You’d have thought I was a honey bun in a beehive.
I’m certain that works really well for any Black man in a nice suit. Parker goes further (I guess because she hasn ‘t dug her own credibility grave deep enough):
The killings leading the news the past several days have been horrific in their apparent randomness. Were they racially motivated?
Had the perps been white and the victims black, would Obama have identified with them?
More to immediate concerns, did the president’s identification with Trayvon Martin nourish the killing passions of these youths?
Ah, the notion that George Zimmerman killed an unarmed Black kid in the rain and got away with murder has caused DARKIES to be upset and that RACIST NEGRO PRESIDENT has stirred up passions against WONDERFUL WHITE MURDERERS!
“the antithesis of the great dream King articulated”
Because every intelligent, thinking person in the United States knows that professional Obama hater, Republican hater and hatey hater Kathleen Parker is the SOLE REPOSITORY AND INTERPRETER of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s legacy: Kathy Pee — keeper of the flame.
Coverage of Kathleen’s party’s Tampa Convention last year
(Wonder why no one invited HER to speak at the Lincoln Memorial? It’s a gosh darned crime, I tells yas!)
Here’s my least favorite specious argument, hypothetical, self-serving and self-serving to White Barbie Dolls who have been followed in their grungy White Girl clothes in exclusive Georgetown Boutiques:
Hard to say with any certainty, though one of those charged in the Oklahoma shooting apparently tweeted some messages this summer that unmistakenly [sic] convey racial animus toward whites. They might be dismissed as Twitter nonsense — but for the dead body.
And, having “corrected herself” earlier, Kathleen Parker reverses direction and turns Oklahoma BACK into the Whitey Meme of ANGRY BLACK MEN attacking INNOCENT WHITE PERSONS! (Uppity! Murderous! Self-contradictory!)
Violent negroes attack innocent white ropes
Here’s the sentence I skipped: “And yes, if I had a son, he’d look like the white teenager who police say drove the getaway car in the Oklahoma killing.” So it was JUST stuck in to give little Miss Sunshine “cover” for this horrific, clueless nastiness.)
We do know this much for certain: Had the races been reversed, the usual suspects would have had much to say. White teens beat up an elderly black veteran and leave him for dead? White teens shoot a talented black athlete visiting from another country? Riots.
Unprovable and almost undoubtedly BS, but you know, this tactic serves instead of actual logic, evidence and reasoning among the feeble-minded. Onward:
I make these observations not to exacerbate a problem but in the hope that we can stop this craziness before things escalate. The conversation-about-race that pundits keep insisting we need to have should end where it began. Maybe in his remarks on the 50th anniversary of the greatest peaceful demonstration in history, Obama can remind Americans that if we had sons and fathers, they’d look like Christopher Lane and Delbert Belton as well as Trayvon Martin.
Victim in chief is no role for a president.
OK. Shut up and go back to your KKK meeting, Kathleen. One can only hope that this is the last nail in your journalistic coffin and that Jeff Bezos wises up and FIRES your entitled ass. One Sally Quinn at any newspaper is vomitously enough.
Sally Quinn, WaPo’s other Barbie®-in-Residence
If I quote any MORE, I’ll have quoted the entire, scrofulous mass of masked racism. Suffice it to say that THIS is Parker’s “argument” in a nutshell:
Nothing is fair about profiling, but one’s treatment by a stranger is not always necessarily linked to one’s racial or ethnic history. Sometimes it’s just … you.
And, by RepubliKKKlan Logick, SOME = ALL, and, therefore, since Kathleen Parker has been “profiled” at an exclusive Georgetown boutique, ALL RACIAL PROFILING is bogus.
It’s just “you.”
You know. YOU, with the black skin. You know, black skin and grungy white chick clothes are ONE AND THE SAME! No racism, except for that UPPITY UPPITY NEGRO PRESIDENT chiding us by telling the truth of his experience.
White privileged Washington Post columnists know MUCH BETTER what it is to be a Black male than any Black male possibly could.
And, since I know MUCH more about being a woman than Kathleen Parker, I realize that it’s just her Pre Menstral Syndrome and vaginal stench, and if she douches and takes a Midol® everything will be all better. Now, we turn to Thomas Moran, who must explain to the Uppitys how they have embarrassed Martin Luther King, Jr.
Commemorating the 50-year anniversary of the March on Washington with fearmongering and demagoguery.
by Thomas Moran The PJ Tatler, Pajamas Media
August 24, 2013 – 1:47 pm
Fifty years ago this week, Martin Luther King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and told a quarter of a million people of his dream of an American future where race didn’t matter in judging your fellow man, only the content of his character.
King, who spent most of his life as a Republican, never imagined that his descendents [sic] in the civil rights movement would make every effort to ensure that race would become the only thing that mattered and that one’s character was judged by politics, and not on any moral basis that King would have recognized.
“King, who spent most of his life as a Republican” is a monstrous distortion (and, evidently, a perfect summary of Moran’s style), since the “Republican” party to which Moran refers was NOT the party that Strom Thurmond would defect to — with nearly ALL of the other Dixiecrats and Segregationists, maintaining the “Solid South” and taking over the “Party of Lincoln” by unreconstructed racists. As it remains controlled by today! Does ANYONE really think that Rick Perry’s GOP is the same as the GOP of Henry Cabot Lodge, Eisenhower or even William F. Buckley, Jr.? Spelling is NOT identity, else going to a gym would entail being given a locomotive. (Going to “train.”)
Ah, straight talk to negroes by what appears to be a form of pallid fungus:
“Right Wing Nut House”s angry ideologue
Rick Moran, MLK’s self-anointed interpreter
Rick Moran is PJ Media’s Chicago editor and Blog editor at The American Thinker. He is also host of the “RINO Hour of Power” on Blog Talk Radio. His own blog is Right Wing Nut House.
Clearly qualified to solve all race problems and extol the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. ANOTHER keeper of the sacred flame.*
[* How it is that so many uppity stupid negroes get it all wrong and these two white Republican snarkers ACTUALLY know what MLK actually meant is a mystery that generations of historians will labor to fully explain.]
Oh, the rudeness! Uppity, uppity negroes!
Partisanship made a rude intrusion on a ceremony marking the “March on Washington” that the civil rights icon led.
It could be seen as inevitable, given the fractured, dysfunctional nature of our politics, that the solemnity that should attend such an occasion was shattered by venomous lies and wildly exaggerated hyperbole, making a mockery of King’s message.
Yes, yes, Rick, of COURSE it was! Why it must have made you uncomfortable that these activists were engaged in activism for the poor and dispossessed, because, as YOU seem to know, Dr. King had NOTHING to do with that.
Rick Moran as an accredited “media” blogger at the
Southern Republican Leadership Conference 2010
It was the kind of politics that King, a political genius, didn’t need to practice. He had an unerring sense of the moral authority of the message he was bringing and the ability to project powerful images of sin and redemption that were compelling enough to literally move millions of people to change the country.
Thanks for that correction, Rick. Because, having grown up during that era, I never ONCE heard any negative White Commentary about Dr. King, that political genius with moral authority. Certainly all those southern sheriffs, like Bull Conner, “got” that much.
Fire hoses in Selma
Not so today.
Instead of moral truths, we got political lies. Instead of a spirit of tolerance, we got fearmongering and demagoguery.
Rep. John L. Lewis, a genuine hero of the movement who endured the dogs, the water cannons, the billy clubs, and the hate of southern authorities, paying for his activism by shedding blood for the cause, brought himself down to gutter level when he told the crowd at the memorial, “I am not going to stand by and let the Supreme Court take the right to vote away from us!”
You cannot stand by. You cannot sit down. You have to stand up, speak up, speak out and get in the way. Make some noise. The vote is precious. It is almost sacred. It’s the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democratic society and we’ve got to use it. Back in 1963 we didn’t have a cellular telephone, iPad, iPod, but we used what we had to bring about a non-violent revolution. And I said to all of the young people, you must get out there and push and pull and make America what America should be for all of us. We must say to the Congress, “Fix the Voting Rights Act.”
Accusing the Supreme Court of taking the right to vote away from anyone is a lie. Lewis knows full well that’s not what the Supreme Court ruled when they abolished the section of the Voting Rights Act that allowed the federal government to oversee some states’ voting laws.
“brought himself down to gutter level.” From hero to goat in ONE sentence. Gotta be a record. ESPECIALLY for an uppity negro, who, while he worked closely with and was recruited by Martin Luther King, Jr., doesn’t know MLK like Moran knows MLK. For shame. For shame.
Alabama police beating unarmed John Lewis
during the march to Selma
Because, as we all know, Republican protest is always POLITE and WELL MANNERED and NEVER NEVER rude. Yeah.
“Accusing the Supreme Court of taking the right to vote away from anyone is a lie” doesn’t quite hold on to its Moranic Authority when you realize that the Supreme Court knew FULL WELL what the effects of striking down part of the Voting Rights Act would be. Moran is a moron here. (For an in-depth understanding, click here).
Here is what the four dissenting Justices said of that decision, Moran:
JUSTICE GINSBURG, with whom JUSTICE BREYER, JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR, and JUSTICE KAGAN join, dissenting.
In the Court’s view, the very success of §5 of the Voting Rights Act demands its dormancy. [...] the Court today terminates the remedy that proved to be best suited to block that discrimination.The Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA) has worked to combat voting discrimination where other remedies had beentried and failed. Particularly effective is the VRA’s requirement of federal preclearance for all changes to voting laws in the regions of the country with the most aggravated records of rank discrimination against minority voting rights….
It’s SO amazing that John Lewis would get it right and the Moran would get it WRONG. Amazing.
And uppity. Uppity uppity uppity and rude.
Lewis covered with blood after beating.
Moran and Parker can undoubtedly
totally relate from their own experience.
Moran concludes his instruction to Uppity Negroes Everywhere with his unselfconscious invocation of the Martin Luther King, Jr. about the Black Experience MORAN knows:
In the 2012 election, the percentage of the black vote rose compared to 2008 when there were few voter ID laws. Where are all these disenfranchised voters? And Sharpton, who has compared voter ID laws to literacy tests and other voter suppression tactics during the Jim Crow era in the south, makes a mockery of the truth when he talks of a “special ID” needed in order to vote. There is nothing “special” about a driver’s license or state ID card. To claim otherwise is pure demagoguery — something Sharpton has a lot of expertise in.
Because insulting Civil Rights leaders proves that you know more about Civil Rights than they do. No evidence needed. Just a reflexive slur. But Moran fails to note that almost all the “voter ID” laws he invokes were SUSPENDED according to the section of the Civil Rights Act that HE CLAIMS ARE NOT NEEDED! Hmmm.
Is he a liar or just a sack of offal? Or both?
Other speakers raised the specter of Trayvon Martin and New York city’s “stop and frisk” practice. But with all this fearmongering, what got lost in the demagoguery was the original message of Dr. King*. It was a message steeped in the Christian tradition of the brotherhood of man — not so much “color blindness” but rather “color tolerance.” King had no illusions about the difficulties that lay ahead (nor his own vulnerabilities). As he eerily proclaimed the night before he was murdered:
[* This is utter nonsense and hogwash, as the quotations below will show.]
Chicago police arrest Pigasus, 1968. He was
never seen – outside of a casserole — again.
Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind.
Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!
And so I’m happy, tonight.
I’m not worried about anything.
I’m not fearing any man.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
That kind of courage and vision was missing from the speakers on the Mall today.
White commentators feel perfectly justified in putting words
and feelings in the mouth of this man, who cannot answer.
Yeah. Because Moran gets to invoke the murder of MLK to tell all the uppity negroes on the mall yesterday that they don’t “get it.”
Too bad he can’t just smear himself in Dr. King’s blood and then lecture us all on his moral superiority. It wouldn’t be any more convincing or less monstrous, but it would be more visual. And in a TeeVee age, that’s all that matters.
Dead Martin Luther King, Jr. lying in his own blood.
Here’s something else Martin Luther King, Jr. said in the OTHER 19 minutes of the “I have a Dream” speech that Parker and Moran seem to have missed entirely while stoking and protecting his Sacred Flame:
… one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we’ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
In a sense we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. 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, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.”
But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we’ve come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.
We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.
Gee. That doesn’t sound like the proper context for the beloved-by-whites cliché “content of their character.”
Moran composes himself in the content of his character
Here’s some more:
The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.
We cannot walk alone.
And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.
We cannot turn back.
There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the negro’s basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating: “For Whites Only.” We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until “justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest — quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality….
The GOP ’acceptable’ version of MLK
Gee. That Martin Luther King, Jr. doesn’t seem to be one that Kathleen Parker and Thomas Moran are familiar with.
I guess it’s MLK’s fault.
John Lewis speaking in D.C. August 28, 1963
Because, in the end, even if he provides a convenient figure to bash the CURRENT crop of Civil Rights activists with, he is, in the end, just another uppity negro.
Right Kathy? Right Tommy?
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. (MLK the ‘I have a dream’ speech. ibid.)
Life in GOP-land goes on as usual
Funny. That doesn’t sound like “ the kind of politics that King, a political genius, didn’t need to practice. He had an unerring sense of the moral authority of the message he was bringing and the ability to project powerful images of sin and redemption that were compelling enough to literally move millions of people to change the country.”
Sounds more like Al Sharpton and John Lewis, frankly.
And, while I am white, I do not have the expertise in being a negro that Tommy and Kathy have.
So I guess I’m just whistling past the graveyard.
