MLK Graphic by Conservatoons MLK Graphic by Conservatoons
Our current president is a product of everything this man fought against. I bristle when they are compared.

Elections matter. I am looking forward to Delection 2012.

Isn't everything this man fought against racism and discrimination? I don't see how Obama is anyway fighting against Martins views.

While I am a socialist, when looking through your anti-socialist album, you respect this man, I found that he stuck out a bit. I mean this is the man who said...

"You can't talk about solving the economic problem of the Negro without talking about billions of dollars. You can't talk about ending the slums without first saying profit must be taken out of slums. You're really tampering and getting on dangerous ground because you are messing with folk then. You are messing with captains of industry.... Now this means that we are treading in difficult water, because it really means that we are saying that something is wrong... with capitalism.... There must be a better distribution of wealth and maybe America must move toward a democratic socialism"
Martin Luther King Jr.
Frogmore, S.C. November 14, 1966. Speech in front of his staff.

This is the man who said one of his greatest influences was A. Philip Randolph, a known socialist and labor union organizer. M.L.K., A man who hired Bayard Rustin, another socialist as his top adviser. A man who surrounded himself with many socialist and union organizers, let us not forget what he was in Tennessee for when he got shot, to help and stand by the unions...

I am not here to debate, just saying, while I greatly respect King, he just stood out a bit in your very anti-socialist album.

Let's just say I agree w/ 70% of what he stood for.

As you've noticed I think socialism guarantees mediocrity at best and chaos at worst, but MLK wanted equality (equal opportunity) not Balkanization an quotas. And you have to respect his courage, but he was no economist.

Where there are differences forms of socialism, there is democratic socialism, which America already has with the public schools, medicare, Free Clinics, etc.

Then you have national socialism, which was the kind that hitler had, then you had universal socialism which is the kind you saw in some communist leader countries.

Socialism does not equal communism, as many try and say. In fact Rustin, King's top adviser was a socialist who was apart of two anti-communist organizations.

Democratic socialism speaks of helping the elder, public education, getting the average worker a fair pay for their work, of course socialist were the main people behind the whole 40 hr work week many decades ago.. socialist generally look for the average person, trying to make their life better, or at least increase the longevity of the people.

One of the founding fathers was a socialist, he was speaking of a medicare 200 years before we even got medicare in this country... though he is not as known, yet easy to look up, because of his hatred of organized religions.

I see you are grouping all socialism as one, socialism, particularly democratic socialism has been apart of your system for over 100 years, and your capitalist system has only gotten stronger, not weaker. Your nation has only grown wealthier since its dawning, not weaker.

It has been a small part until fairly recently. It had been grown steadily despite socialism not due to it. And now we are trending down due to every increasing growth of govt.

Well sir, it is hard to make the claim that we are going into debt due to "socialism" when you were already in great debt before that. The claim would be more fact and less rhetoric if the economy was going great and then the introduction of such things would have made it go down.

..yet that also would be a hard case to make since it has been shown to work in one major US state, and one major US city.

Conservatoons, the silence with which you answer this guy's valid point is deafening.

Not a socialist myself, but nonetheless feel it would be courteous for you to answer his point.

THIS guy would REALLY have made an excellent president. His dream was real and unselfish. I admit there's still a lot I need to learn, even on great men like him, but.... Mr. King would NEVER have voted for socialism. After some of the crap he and others had to go through, why would he? Its the same thing.

your retarded this cartoon makes no sense. Martin Luther King Jr fought to bring rights for black men and other ethnic groups to have equal rights. having a black man in the white house is a mile stone of Martin's dream. I can respect you have different views on topics but before you post a cartoon(which some I find funny and I am democrat) make sure they make sense.

The reason why Conservatoons put this up was because MLK was a member of the Republican party. I think MLK would be proud to see a black man as the president, but I wonder if he would agree with the policies he put in place and what he's been doing. ~ C

is it the graphic or your interpretation?

BO is an affirmative action president. MLK would have detested AA yet this pres rode a wave of liberal white guilt straight to the white house. He never misses an opportunity to play the race card or demonize a group of people.

To link him w/ MLK in a positive way does a vast injustice to a great man who wanted equal opportunity not special privileges.

"a great man who wanted equal opportunity not special privileges"

I could not put it better myself...

rather than spoil people by giving "special privileges", he just wanted "equal opportunity" for everyone to get something one their own effort...

which brings up another topic I've seen in america, Notice how when St. Patrick's Day is being celebrated, badges with the words "Proud to be Irish" are being sold?

and then there's "Black Pride" during "Black History Month"

[link]

Now, I know you may not be very fond of George Carlin because he identifies with hippies and such...

but surely, what he said here makes sense right?

Pride should be earned with ones own hands, not a byproduct of whatever ethnic group one is born into...

I myself am just contented to be of Chinese birth, I absolutely have no right to claim credit for writing "The Art Of War" or discovering how to make paper, to put it that way...

To continue my point, Even as a Socialist, he was a CHRISTIAN SOCIALIST. As Christians believe in an all powerful God who is perfect, wouldn't Socialism work under such a God?

Humans are subject to Greed, perfect deities are not.

Yeah, but CToons is trying to tell us that he's conservative, which he isn't. He'd probably be against abortion and gay marriage, as a Christian, but it's safe to assume he'd be for affirmative action, progressive taxation, and universal health care.

This is the kind of leadership that really *gets you somewhere*. The sooner the African-American community, and minorities in general, can ditch the socialist victim-mentality grievance-exploiting bunch of parasites, the better. And yes I'm not American but that goes for my own minority as well. Fortunately we're not far down that road ... yet.
