"MLK Jr.'s Niece: 'Trump Is Not a Racist'"

[she must be the female version of an uncle tom---what is that? an aunt Tommie?]

quote:

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece, a conservative [aunt Tommie!], was interviewed by Fox and Friends today and defended the 45th president of the United States against accusations of racism, calling critics “outrageous.”

President Donald J. Trump fell under a barrage of criticism this week, after a Democratic senator alleged that he referred to Haiti and several other nations as “sh*thole” countries during immigration reform negotiations.

"Racism is just a word that is being bandied about and thrown... at the president unjustly," she said. "President Trump is not a racist."

She also defended his alleged remarks, saying they were targeted towards the governments of those countries, not necessarily the people. "Some of their own leaders have taken advantage of them," she said.

King continued saying it is “outrageous to call a man a racist who continues to acknowledge the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Reverend. Martin Luther King, my uncle, in a positive way and he puts his money where his mouth is, he puts his energy behind it.”

On Monday, America will celebrate MLK Day in honor of the civil rights hero. His niece is a committed activist in defending and preserving King's legacy. She also said this week that if he were alive today he would be a ' pro-life activist.

“He said the Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the futures of his children for immediate personal comfort and safety,” King said. “Abortion, of course, forces us to do exactly that.”

“I really believe that if my uncle were here today, he would encourage us to find solutions to the problems, even women’s problems, and all problems, without having to do violence to babies in the womb. I am just convinced that he would agree with that,” King said.

“As the niece of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and I emphasize the ‘reverend’ because history has not always recorded his spiritual aspects … I have been mostly impacted by his messages of unity, of racial reconciliation, of course nonviolence, and the strongest has always been and will always be for me the agape love message,” Alveda King told The Daily Signal in an interview Friday. “One of the things that we would say [is], ‘We must learn to live together as brothers,’ and I’ll add, as sisters, ‘or perish together as fools.’”

Okay, lets say, just for argument's sake that Trump is a racist, and by extension all conservatives.

But then, I would be forced to point out that for all the liberal screams of racism, and supporting of minorities in the United States, that they are a bunch of fucking hypocrites with absolutely no moral or ethical ground to stand on.

Under a Democrat president, the US Justice Department reopened the investigation of over a dozen unsolved murders on the Pine Ridge Reservation in 2012. As of the end of his presidency, nothing of value has been done. This includes one particular case where a woman was determined by a Department of Justice medical examiner to have died from exposure, despite the fact that his autopsy photos clearly showed a large caliber bullet wound to the back of the head.

And while this wondrous, heaven sent president did make some long needed changes to the rights of native Americans, and with all his executive orders that helped everyone and made drastic changes to some gun laws, he failed to get Indians better schools, health care and his "Indian land buy back" program was great, the Indians could buy back reservation lands stolen in violation of god knows how many treaties with their own money.

Would some liberal ass explain the justice in having to buy back something stolen from you in the first place?

Of course, this Democrat saint did not address the real issue of the billions the Federal government made from mining leases and oil leases on Indian lands that did not go to the Indians who owned the land, but into the federal treasury.

Of course, the real changes made in Indian policy have actually been done by the racist GOP, which makes no sense when you look at the claim that the only time the GOP does anything for minorities is to get votes, Native Americans have the smallest voting demographic in the US.

Face facts, the only minorities that Dems give a flying fuck about are black and brown. As far as the rest are concerned, Democrats have a tradition dating back as long as the party has been around, and it is fuck em.

Get off your fucking white horses already, they are covered in mud.

Lucy, do you know where that grant money is coming from?

Give you a hint, BIA funds that come from income generated by businesses on reservations, you know, like the casino companies that put casinos and indain land and pay the fees to the Federal government and not the indians, and those grants are matching, meaning the tribes have to put up their money too.

So, oh great and wise one, why the fuck should the tribes have to a)use grants from the BIA that could and should go to schools and health care, and their own money to buy back land that was given to them in treaties and then stolen by the fucking government who is now willing to sell it back to the tribe.

Oh, yeah, Obama got native American women covered under the domestic violence act, which never actually excluded native American women in the first fucking place.....

And it was not the FBI that decided not to look into the stuff dealing with Pine Ridge, since it was not the FBI that decided to look into it in the first place, but the Department of Justice office of Judicial review.

What the FBI did was either redact or lose just about every record generated in their investigations or lack there of.

In point of fact, the first time the cases were reviewed, the agents involved could not even produce the notes they are required to take during the course of an investigation, some of whom now hold supervisory and high admin positions in the Bureau.

And would you mind providing a link where conservatives wanted the standing rock protestors shot?

Oh, FYI, saint Obama had no less than 40 petitions submitted to the white house asking for Leonard Peltier's sentence to at least be commuted to time served, since clearly pardoning a man that even the prosecutor admitted could not be proven to have fired any of the fatal shots that killed the two FBI agents he was convicted of murdering (after a man that admitted on the stand at his trial that his shots had hit at least one of the deceased agents, and even with that statement under oath, was acquitted) was out of the question.

In fact, since the height of the Indian Rights movement in the US, no president Liberal or Conservative has commuted the sentence of any native American involved in the movement. Now Clinton pardoned Susan Rosenberg, a member of the Weather Underground and arrested while unloaded dynamite that was to be used in a bombing campaign....

Yep, those Liberals are all for justice....

Like I said, every race matters to the liberals and Dems except any with red skin.

Of course the only man that ever ran for president that actually promised to make right all the broken treaties in a speech to a gathering of native Americans could not understand why the hell the audience started laughing, until after the event.

Turns out to keep his promise, he would have to deed back to the various tribes a total of 125 million acres of private, state and federal lands.....

His name was Romney, which is probably why republicans sorta voted for the other guy.

Why say that 'for the sake of argument'? Has anyone argued that all conservatives are racists? It certainly wouldn't be my view.

Clearly you have not paid much attention to the Liberal news machines such as MSNBC

2017: The Year the News Media Went to War Against a President

The first year of the Trump administration was as turbulent for the news media as it was for politics, with many journalists dropping any pretense of professionalism to become strident opponents of the President. As a proxy for the larger establishment media, the Media Research Center analyzed every moment of coverage of President Trump last year on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts, usually seen by more than 25 million people each night. The major findings:

■ The Trump presidency was the biggest story of the year, accounting for one out of every three minutes of evening news airtime — nearly 100 hours in total.

■ The tone of coverage has been incessantly hostile, especially for a new President in his honeymoon year: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (These percentages do not include neutral statements).

■ More than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the President (43%) focused on controversies, not policies, with the Russia investigation alone accounting for one-fifth of all Trump coverage (1,234 minutes).

■ Despite their massive coverage of Russia, the networks had almost no airtime for questions about how the investigation began, or whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation is biased.

Now the details of our year-long study:

■ The Trump Presidency Was by Far the Biggest Story of 2017: From Inauguration Day (January 20) through the end of 2017 (December 31), the three evening newscasts aired 3,430 stories that talked about either President Trump or his administration, totaling 99 hours, 3 minutes of airtime. This amounts to approximately 34 percent of all evening news airtime (excluding commercials), meaning that one out of every three minutes of broadcast evening news coverage was devoted to the Trump story last year.

In contrast, MRC analysis of these same newscasts in 2015 and 2016 found that airtime devoted to President Obama and his administration amounted to approximately ten percent of overall evening news coverage in those years, or less than one-third the level of Trump’s coverage.

■ Coverage of Trump Has Been Incessantly Negative: Reviewing all of this coverage, our analysts catalogued 5,883 evaluative statements about the President or his administration from either reporters, anchors or non-partisan sources such as experts or voters. Only about 10 percent of those comments (617) were positive, compared with 5,266 (90%) which were negative — an unparalleled level of media hostility for a President in his first year in office.



There were only three months in 2017 when Trump’s level of good press rose above 10 percent on the evening news: January, when TV coverage of his inauguration included a few stories about the positive reaction among Trump voters; April, when the network coverage mentioned supportive reaction to the cruise missile strikes against Syria; and in December, when Congress finally passed a major tax reform package, a Trump legislative success. Even in those months, however, the balance of TV’s coverage of Trump was still hugely negative — 85 percent negative in January, 82 percent in April, and 85 percent in December.

The media’s negative approach has been essentially consistent regardless of which issues or controversies were prevalent in the news. For example, network TV coverage was no more hostile in August (91% negative), when Trump came under intense criticism for his reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, related to a white supremacist march, than it was in most other months.


Rather, the evening newscasts have provided extremely heavy coverage of some stories (Russia, the travel ban, and myriad personal controversies) where they evidently believed heavy criticism is justified, while they barely mention other topics where the administration has a positive story to tell. (Tomorrow, we will report on six of Trump’s accomplishments that were essentially ignored by the networks.)

■ A Huge Percentage of Network News Coverage Focused on Controversies, Not Policy: More than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the Trump administration (43%, or 42 hours, 37 minutes) centered on various controversies associated with the President and his top aides. The Russia investigation was the networks’ favorite topic, with an astonishing 20 hours, 34 minutes of coverage, or more than one-fifth of all Trump coverage last year.

Discussion of all public policy issues combined amounted to 46 hours, 58 minutes of coverage, or roughly 47 percent of all Trump coverage. The five most-frequently covered policy issues: the effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare (475 minutes); the nuclear showdown with North Korea (364 minutes); immigration policy, including ramped-up deportations and a potential border wall (258 minutes); the temporary travel ban and the ensuing court fight (251 minutes); and the ultimately successful push for comprehensive tax reform (222 minutes).

That's a lie on your part

Calling a shithole a shithole is neither racist nor bigoted nor any of the other propaganda you've been fed

From MSNBC, calling for blood, for war... (video at the link). If they're howling that President Trump is a Nazi, White Supremacist, blah blah blah, what are they saying about those of us who also support him and his conservative policies

quote:

REID: "MSNBC political analyst Jason Johnson “The root,” former senator Barbara boxer, Democrat of California. Jason, a couple more responses from members of Congress to what Donald Trump said. Ileana Russ lateen, she said the president calling Haiti an s-hole country ignores the contributions thousands of Haitians have made to this country. CBC chairman Cedric Richman of Louisiana, whose population largely was drawn from Haiti over overthrowing the napoleonic government, President Trump’s comments are another indication of his racially ignorant views. It reinforces concerns we hear every day that “Make America great again' is code for 'Make America white again.'"

JOHNSON: "We’ve been saying this a long time. The president is a white supremacist. We heard in Charlottesville. Our president is a terrorist sympathizer. Our president is a clear and present danger to nonwhite people in America. It’s that simple. There’s no reason to pretend that’s not what’s going on. What’s important is not just how his heart feels. I’ve never cared about that and that’s not what’s important. This manifest in policy, this manifest in judicial policy, this manifest ins in immigration policy, this manifests in how this administration has dealt with American citizens this Puerto Rico who are dying because they don’t consider them to be real Americans. Unless the Democratic Party realizes that this man is an enemy to nonwhite people in America, and this is not an exaggeration. Everything in his rhetoric and policy has said so. We will be in danger as a sof rant nation. We have to recognize that this president has made it abundantly clear since he got into office he does not want to make a space for nonwhite people to participate. Yes, there are some people who are not-white who are in his administration. But policy-wise and rhetoric-wise, he’s made it abundantly clear there is no role for brown, tan, yellow, LGBT people in the future that he wants to create in America."

More: "Americans knew who they were electing"

once again, the shithole /shithouse comment, isnt the racism
his history(documented) is.
but try again.
calling him a racist, doesnt touch conservatives, unless they are bigots anyway.
Trump isnt the bar for what "a racist is".
sorry to burst your bubble.
