It’s an odd juxtaposition to watch as liberal politicians (and their friends in the media) attempt to smear our President as a “racist,” even as he stands to honor our nation’s most famous civil rights icon.
Sadly, that’s exactly what happened this past weekend as the mainstream media’s most powerful voices literally called our President a racist, implying that he wanted fewer black immigrants coming to America, on the same weekend that our nation collective remembers the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Last week the President signed a proclamation honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and this came just days after signing The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Park Act which changed King’s birth home, Ebenezer Baptist Church and King’s burial site and upgraded them all from a national historic site to a national historic park.
Here’s what the President had to say on Friday:
Dr. King’s faith and his love for humanity led him and so many other heroes to courageously stand up for civil rights of African-Americans. Through his bravery and sacrifice, Dr. King opened the eyes and lifted the conscience of our nation. He stirred the hearts of our people to recognize the dignity written in every human soul.
And we celebrate Dr. King for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God.
