Alveda King on MLK Day.

Alveda King Gay Marriage

The NAACP did a great thing this week when they formally endorsed marriage equality. The NAACP has opposed and will continue to oppose any national, state, local policy or legislative initiative that seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the Constitutional rights of LGBT citizens. We support marriage equality consistent with equal protection under the law provided under the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. In other words, if you churches want to continue shading the gays, so be it, but as it pertains to state matters, the LGBT community ought to have the same rights and privileges as you straight couples. In the eyes of the self-appointed moral police, a civil rights group acknowledging that one of the biggest civil rights issue of our time is on par with spitting in the face of Jesus and stealing his wallet when he reaches for a towel to wipe himself off. 

One of the first members of the regressive sect of the religious community is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Alveda King, who bemoans the NAACP’s position and uses it to lend credence to the idea that the organization has lost its way. First of all, it’s quite rich to see someone who can speak at a Glenn Beck rally assail someone else for deviating from Dr. King’s message. Second, I’m not kin to Dr. 

King, but I do know he never publicly bashed the gay community the way his niece routinely does. I also don’t conveniently forget that a gay man by the name of Bayard Rustin assisted King in organizing the very efforts that have afforded Alveda the luxury of having a platform to mouth off all this lunacy so openly. Not to mention, there’s no way of knowing how Dr. King – who has been suggested to not be a Biblical literalist ala Alveda – would have felt about the issue of marriage equality in 2012. Alveda King is free to feel however she chooses to about gay marriage; however, for much of her adult life, she’s used her last name to lend credence to her conservative viewpoints. 

Viewpoints that often are bastardized accounts of her Dr. King’s political ideology.

MLK Niece Alveda King Called A ‘Liar’ For Attacking Gay Icon Bayard Rustin –

The extremely anti-gay Alveda King, in a carefully-worded statement on Tuesday had attacked the NAACP for their decision to publicly support same-sex marriage, and in response to several bloggers, including The New Civil Rights Movement, the younger King wrote some rather ugly comments in a press release on Wednesday. Master strategist Bayard Rustin was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s organizer for the 1963 March on Washington, and his right-hand man for many years, but because he was gay, he has been hidden from history. Only in recent years has Rustin, posthumously, been receiving due attention. I was amused as to how you were suddenly anointed as a voice for the black community simply because you are Martin Luther King, Jr’s niece. 

Ms. King, you like to talk about the so-called sin of homosexuality, but let me remind you that the Bible also says something against bearing false witness. Ms. King, it takes more than familial connections to make one a leader. A leader works his or her fingers to the bone for a cause. 

A leader puts him or herself on the line more than once even though success of the cause may not be assured. Worst of all, none of your fame comes from anything you have done, but only due to the fact that you had the good fortune to be related to Martin Luther King, Jr. If you didn’t have this familial relation, no one would care about anything you say. Alveda King, married and divorced three times, preaches regularly against rights for the gay community and against rights for women. “Neither my great-grandfather an NAACP founder, my grandfather Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. 

an NAACP leader, my father Rev. A. D. Williams King, nor my uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

embraced the homosexual agenda that the current NAACP is attempting to label as a civil rights agenda. Alveda King has in the past linked same-sex marriage equality to “genocide,†and for decades has fought to exclude the battle for LGBT rights from the civil rights movement her uncle embodied.

Advocating for the Unborn: An Interview with Dr. Alveda King

I was recently blessed to interview Dr. Alveda King, daughter of Rev. A.D. King and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

She is a powerhouse in the pro-life community, working tirelessly to bring the horrors of abortion to light and to bring an end to the ongoing slaughter of millions of babies each year. She is passionate about not only ending abortion but also for carrying on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of equality for all, including the unborn. As you’ll see, Dr. King reminds us that with God’s love, forgiveness, and help, we can still overcome this scourge. 

Margaret Sanger had a very specific agenda in mind when she founded Planned Parenthood. Interestingly enough, we have discovered that throughout the history of abortion, since 1973 with Roe Vs Wade, that often in the Caucasian areas where most of the clientele was Caucasian, they would sometimes offer opportunities to help those young ladies keep their babies, but with the African American women it was always abortion. We do know that this genocidal eugenics plan has been in place by the testimony of some who used to work for Planned Parenthood but who have now left. Planned Parenthood’s Jaffe Memo from 1969 gave ideas and suggestions regarding population control. Planned Parenthood claims these were merely a list of suggestions and were never the policies of Planned Parenthood. 

There is a global eugenics and genocide plan for those who have the wealth and human power to control the population to make an ideal world, to care for the planet, to care for the environment, and to have a smaller population and in their minds, a more worthy population. So there are many plans to control the population and to take over the planet but this is an age old plan, a human plan. There again, there is a divine plan where the love of God has enough provisions for all human beings. Dr. King hoped this interview would be published before Election Day so she could encourage us to vote for life.

Dr. Alveda King – Interview

Introducing Dr. Alveda King: Coming Soon to House of David

We are thrilled to announce what promises to be an illuminating and informative guest speaker opportunity on Friday, October 27th at 7:45pm CT at House of David, home of Curt Landry Ministries – the esteemed Dr. Alveda King, a niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Over the next several weeks we will discuss in more detail some of Dr. King’s views and activism, and how they intersect with faith. 

We would like to provide a brief introduction about who Dr. King is to familiarize our friends with her work before she speaks at The House of David. While her name and relation to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. already makes her famous, Dr. 

Alveda King has carved out an impressive career in politics and activism in her own right. Born in Atlanta, Georgia as the first of five children to A.D. King and his wife Naomi, Dr. King was thrust right into turbulence and terror of the civil rights movement as a young child. Despite the challenges of growing up as a child heavily exposed to the civil rights movement, King was able to earn an impressive education. 

After Dr. King left school, she went on to represent the 28th District in the Georgia House of Representatives. Dr. King has also published a variety of books, which include selections of poetry, memoirs, essays on her outlooks on certain social and political topics and other writings that espouse her worldview. Finally, she has become a leader in speaking to Christians about the subject of racial reconciliation, which is to be one of the primary subjects of her speaking engagement at House of David Ministries in October. 

Contact us today at Curt Landry Ministries if you have any questions. The mission of Curt Landry Media is to be a bridge of unity and restoration between Israel and the Church, releasing God’s fullness throughout the earth. Our purpose is to facilitate covenant restoration through the reconciliation of Jews and Gentiles coming together as the One New Man. Truth- We believe that God’s truth has the power to set people free, and we do everything in our power to remain faithful to His truth, in thought, in word, and in deed.

Political Research Associates

The one that struck me most forcefully is that the cognitive dissonance and historical revisionism of the white supremacist Religious Right on the issues of race and racism is very much here to stay. They’re digging their heels in-and they’re using Black conservatives and other conservatives of color to do it. In the breakfast session, Black former Cincinnati mayor Ken Blackwell claimed that we have the Second Amendment to thank for America being the most diverse and free nation in the world-citing as an example the Deacons for Defense, a 1960s Black Power group who advocated armed self-defense against white supremacist violence. How to square this with the reality that the Deacons and similar groups were violently targeted by the white Right and the U.S. government in the 60s-or with the present-day reality that the Right Wing routinely smears unarmed. 

Black men like Trayvon Martin or Ramarley Graham as dangerous thugs who deserve to be shot and killed-I cannot tell you. Blackwell’s comments about the heroism of armed Black men were applauded by the 90% white audience. The parade of Black speakers at VVS seemed at least partially calculated to absolve the white Religious Right of its ongoing racism and rewrite its supremacist past. To hear them tell it, conservatives are the true champions of civil rights, liberals are the real racists, and Black communities are sad, ignorant dupes of the Democrats. This has, of course, become fairly standard rhetoric from Black and white conservative leaders, but it was taken to extremes at the Summit that I literally breathtaking. 

From the surprised murmur that swept the crowd after Dr. Carson’s comment, it seemed that even the Values Voters crowd was slightly stunned by the comparison-or perhaps that a Black man was the one who made it. In any case, the common thread between all three statements is how thoroughly they rewrite the legacy of white supremacy in American evangelicalism. White conservative Christians, in the narrative of VVS, are and always have been champions of racial equality, while Black people who name white racism are not only irrationally hateful, but in fact sinning against white people.

CNN insults Alveda King as ‘token black woman’ – GOPUSA

To declare his contempt for Trump advocates, CNN commentator Keith Boykin lashed out on social media against the conservative black leader, who has been a vocal supporter of Trump numerous times on cable news. The CNN personality was most likely referring to King’s words of praise for Trump on Fox and Friends earlier this month. She went on to point out Trump’s many contributions to the black community since he moved into the White House earlier this year. She has often spoken of Trump’s sincere interest in partnering with and learning about the black community in America. Instead of truly being about helping the black community, jabs from the mainstream media on conservative black leaders are said to be more about partisan politics and supporting ultra-Left organizations such as Black Lives Matter, Planned Parenthood and Antifa. 

Enthusiastic about the Trump’s eagerness to actually do something about improving African Americans’ lives – instead of merely talking about it like many Leftist politicians – Harvey lauded the president’s pledge to get the black community on its feet in areas that have been plagued with crime and poverty. According to the Left, anyone standing on the same side with Trump on any issue is fair game for virulent attacks from the mainstream media and entertainment industry. Comedian D.L. Hughley took the opportunity to try and discredit Trump’s assistance to the black community, insisting that if the president really wanted to bring about significant change, he would have invited African American lawmakers and academics, the Daily Beast reported. Hill was quick to criticize Harvey as being one of Trump’s pawns. 

The CNN contributor followed up by deriding Harvey for not showing up with an African-American policy expert such as Cornell West or Michelle Alexander to challenge Trump. Disagreeing with Hill’s take, Trump’s National Diversity Coalition Executive Director Bruce Levell countered his assertion before asking him how he could assume to know what Trump and Harvey talked about during their meeting. The Trump staff member then gave Hill an example of the diversity Trump brings to the plate at the White House.

Alveda King on Rewriting Civil Rights Act for LGBT

Religious Coalition Slams Alveda KingThe American Spectator

Equally as noteworthy was a religious pro-abortion coalition, including several Mainline denominations, which lashed out at another speaker at the Beck Rally, King’s niece Alveda King, for her pro-life advocacy. While RCRC is comprised exclusively of nearly all-white Mainline denominations and liberal activist groups, among them Catholics for a Free Choice, the group has an extensive outreach to African Americans through its National Black Church Initiative. Among its programs has been the National Black Religious Summit on Sexuality, held annually at Washington’s Howard University, and which has tried subtly to promote pro-abortion themes in church curricula and to liberalize church teaching about sexual ethics. King directs the African-American outreach for Priests for Life and has spearheaded a campaign to raise awareness about abortion’s impact on the black population. RCRC was founded in 1973 by primarily white Mainline Protestants to defend Roe v. 

Wade against Roman Catholic and other pro-life religious voices. Unwilling to grant the desirability of any restriction on abortion, RCRC over the years has even defended the legality of partial-birth abortions and of transporting minors across state lines for abortions. Agencies of the United Methodist Church, Presbyterian Church, United Church of Christ, and the Episcopal Church are RCRC’s leading members. Responding to RCRC, King was unapologetic in defending her pro-life views and participation in the Beck rally. While blacks make up 12 percent of the population they account for 35 percent of all abortions in the United States. 

King and pro-life black clergy have alleged that the disproportionate impact of abortion upon the black community has been a targeted effort. Although RCRC has several African-American officers, including Veazey and RCRC Chairman Alton B. Pollard III, Dean of Howard University School of Divinity, none of the historically black denominations is affiliated with RCRC. Typically socially and theologically conservative, especially compared to white Mainline churches, most black churches are probably closer to Alveda King than RCRC on abortion. Maybe this explains why RCRC is trying to target black churches, and why Alveda King’s pro-life advocacy, especially at the high profile Beck rally, so enraged groups like RCRC..

Over the years the March for Life has grown to include numerous other cities in the United States and throughout the world. The March in D.C. has become and remains the largest pro-life event in the world. The first March for Life was founded by Nellie Gray, a lawyer and employee of the Federal government for 28 years, who after the Supreme Court decisions chose to retired and become a pro-life activist. It is estimated that about half of the marchers are under age 30, with many teenagers and college students attending the march each year, typically traveling with church and other youth groups. 

In some past years it has even including addresses by U.S. Presidents, including Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. The rally is followed by the march, which begins near Fourth Street and travels down Constitution Avenue, turns right at First Street and proceeds past the U.S. Capitol Building, before ending on the steps of the U.S. 

Supreme Court Building. Many other associated events also take place in D.C. each year during the week in which the March is held. A dinner is also held each year, hosted by The March for Life Education and Defense Fund, which is the primary organizer for the March. An organization named Students for Life of America, which is the largest association of pro-life groups or clubs on college campuses, also holds an annual conference in D.C. 

for pro-life youth on the week of the march. In recent years, the March for Life has chosen to focus on a theme in order to bring attention to specific aspects of the issue. Statistics indicate that this population is at the greatest risk for abortion, with studies indicating that approximately 85% of these pregnancies are ended by abortion, compared with the national abortion average of approximately 20%. During this week that began with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal holiday, I also found it noteworthy that his niece, Dr. 

Alveda King, was a prominent participant in the March for Life. In her capacity as a full-time Pastoral Associate of African-American Outreach for the Roman Catholic group, Priests for Life, she is also a staunch and outspoken pro-life advocate.

The Green Room – Dr. Alveda King (07.07.2014)

Bernice King

Bernice Albertine King is an American minister best known as the youngest child of civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King. A turning point in King’s life, King experienced conflict within her family when her sister Yolanda King and brother Dexter Scott King supported the sale of the King Center. King’s uncle, Alfred Daniel Williams King, drowned in a swimming pool when Bernice was six. In 2008, King and her brother, Martin Luther King III, filed suit over the alleged mismanagement of funds from the King Center against their brother Dexter Scott King, who then filed a countersuit against them. 

Bernice was the only one of the four King children to be with Coretta Scott King when she died and learned that her mother’s remains could not be transported back to Georgia, since Mexican authorities required an autopsy first. In the months between her stroke and death, Bernice and her brother Martin Luther King III vowed to fight the sale of the King Center to the National Park Service. On August 28, 2013, the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, the King estate filed a lawsuit against the King Center alleging that it had been careless with its handling of Martin Luther King, Jr. memorabilia. It notified the center that the licensing agreement for the King memorabilia was being terminated and that the center could avoid this by placing Bernice King on administrative leave and pulling Andrew Young and Alveda King from the board. 

Harry Belafonte filed a lawsuit in October 2013, where he asked to be declared the owner of three documents given to him by the Kings and for their daughter Bernice King to be barred permanently from trying to claim ownership. The King estate and Bernice King disputed Belafonte’s ownership of the documents when in 2008, he took the items to Sotheby’s auction house in New York to be appraised and put up for sale. King’s brothers Martin Luther King III and Dexter Scott King are interested in selling their father’s Nobel Peace Prize and his Bible, which was used by U.S. President Barack Obama during his swearing in for a second term. On March 14, 2014, Ron Gaither, one of Bernice King’s lawyers, argued that William Hill, lawyer of Martin Luther King III and Dexter King, should not have any role in the case because of his involvement in the 2008 dispute between the King children.

St. Paul, Minnesota is about 1,000 miles from Birmingham, Alabama geographically. Turner encouraged the marchers to be peaceful; however, peace starts in the heart and comes out the mouth. In Birmingham, the Restoring Unity event began with a march of anywhere from 20-30 thousand people through the Civil Rights district Saturday morning. At this time, I’ve found no national media coverage of this march, which Birmingham police had estimated numbers closer to 30,000 and said it was likely the largest march in the city since the 1963 Civil Rights marches. 

Led by conservative radio commentator Glenn Beck, Bishop Jim Lowe of the Guiding Light Church, and Alveda King, niece of slain Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., the march began at the historic 16th Street Baptist Church. Ending at the Legacy Arena, the march began a day of speaking, singing, and praying. It’s hard to know how to describe the arena show. It was a lot of a revivalhaving church on a Saturday afternoon and listening to the amazing voices of the gospel choir of the Guiding Light Church, powerful messages and prayers from Bishop Lowe, Alveda King, Pastor Rafael Cruz, and Johnnie Moore. Moore, an author and humanitarian, is an advocate for the Christians in the Middle East who are being marked for extinction in areas being overtaken by ISIS. 

He told stories of people there who have been executed by the terrorist group for refusing to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ; of women and young girls being sold as slaves, children being crucified and men burned alive in cages. Less than 2 weeks ago when he interviewed Johnnie Moore on his radio show, he vowed to raise a million dollars to help get some of these Christians and Yazidis into any safe country that will take them. He announced a new fundraising campaign called The Nazarene Fund, which will raise $10 million dollars by the end of the year in order to help these persecuted Christians get away from ISIS. He compared it to a modern day Schindler’s List, referring to Oskar Schindler, who saved about 1200 Jewish lives during WWII. Incidentally, Beck is an avid collector of historic artifacts and held up Schindler’s actual hand-written list of names of people that were saved from Nazi death camps.

VATICAN INSIDER: ALVEDA KING ON MLK AND PRO-LIFE ISSUES – PRESIDENT PROCLAIMS JANUARY 16 RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DAY – NEW HHS DEPARTMENT TO PROTECT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM – PLENARY INDULGENCE GRANTED FOR MFL PARTICIPANTS

I am dedicating today’s column to the March for Life in Washington, D.C., given the enormous impact it always has on the city and our nation, and the even bigger issue it represents – the pro-life movement in America! You will find out how to gain a plenary indulgence by participating in the March, learn about President Trump’s participation, his proclamation of Religious Freedom Day and about the new department in the government for religious freedom. Alveda King is a niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. and the founder of Alveda King Ministries. Alveda currently serves as a Pastoral Associate and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, the African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. 

PRESIDENT PROCLAIMS JANUARY 16 RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DAY. I think the late Cardinal Francis George of Chicago would have loved the symbolism of January 16 being named religious Freedom Day – this year he would have been 81 on that day! He was a stirring and sterling voice that fought, taught and spoke against the incursions on religious freedom in our country in recent years! A new division at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will work to ensure the protection of religious freedom and conscience rights for Americans, government officials announced Thursday. 

This new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, which falls under the HHS Office for Civil Rights, will focus on the enforcement of existing laws on rights of conscience and religious freedom. Also speaking at today’s announcement was Montse Alvarado, the Executive Director of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, who explained to CNA what this new division will mean for Catholic healthcare professionals across the country. Several other government officials and religious figures spoke at the press conference announcing the new division. Representatives from HHS cited President Trump’s executive order last May as an impetus for the new HHS division. The Conscience and Religious Freedom Division will enforce existing protection statutes over which the Office of Civil Rights already has authority. 

Catholics participating in the 45th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., Jan. 19 will be able to receive a plenary indulgence for doing so, the local Church has announced. Individuals who wish to obtain the plenary indulgence must engage in the events hosted by the March for Life in Washington, D.C.: the youth rally, Mass at Capital One Area, the adult and family rally at St. Matthews Cathedral, or the Prayer Vigil for Life at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Alveda King: Trump is not a racist – GOPUSA

Late last week, Trump became the focus of yet another media firestorm after Sen. Richard Durbin publicly charged him with crudely addressing a Caribbean nation and several African countries by a crude term. King – who is a former member of the Georgia state House of Representatives and taught as a college professor – insists that the Democratic Party and the left-leaning mainstream media is just jumping on the latest opportunity to bash the president. She asserted that if there is any truth to the allegation against Trump, she is confident that his words were directed toward the corrupt leaders of those nation’s oppressive governments – not the people as a whole. King was quick to point out the positive strides Trump has made for the African American community in the United States, alluding to the economic viability that has blacks have gained with the 45th president in charge after eight lackluster years under the administration of former President Barack Obama – who many Democratic leaders have lauded as the champion of minorities and civil rights, despite the escalating racial tensions during his two terms. 

One of the instances of Trump’s efforts to lift the black community that King said has worked to forward the civil rights strides that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., made through the movement he started about half a century ago was the park the first-year president opened in her iconic uncle’s name. With Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday being celebrated Monday, his niece pointed out that his legacy continues today through the pro-life movement – a movement that has been forwarded by Trump, who has worked in Washington, D.C., to defund the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Serving with Priests for Life as director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, King stressed that Dr. 

Martin Luther King was always mindful and expressive of his devotion to the sanctity of human life. She also addressed an issue concerning MLK’s wife, Coretta Scott King – who in 1996 received an award from Planned Parenthood on behalf of her husband – impressing that her uncle would have firmly stood against the abortion giant’s pro-abortion agenda that it has agressively carried out over the decades. With the 31st annual March for Life being held this coming Friday in Washington, D.C., King stressed that the ongoing civil rights crusade to which her uncle dedicated his life extends to the leaps and bounds made by today’s pro-life movement. Don’t leave yet! Please join in the discussions.

Alveda King: allusions, illusions and ego-enhancement and attack on civil and human rights

Alveda Celeste King, the niece of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and daughter of the late civil rights activist Rev. A. D. William King, Sr. 

and his wife Naomi Barber King, falsely claims to be a minister: neither ordained nor anointed, and not within her father’s church. She has none of the charity required by the Jesus of the New Testament as detailed in his sermon on the mountain and is opposed to affirmative action and assistance for Black people, single parents, and individuals with AIDS. Alveda King calls herself a Christian, but she has never met, studied, or introduced in her self-glorifying speeches and harangues against women seeking the right of choice, the LGBT community protesting for basic civil and human rights, or fathers wanting equal rights in a single statement that the Jesus of the New Testament is recorded to have said. While Alveda promotes the alleged sanctity of marriage, Ms. King seldom practiced what she preached about matrimonial stability, fidelity, and loyalty, as Alveda King was married and divorced three times, giving birth to six living children. 

One can comment, as many have before me, that Alveda King, who claims that marriage is a sacred institution as defined by her god, certainly was not redefining marriage, just exercising her right to it, over and over and over again. Today Alveda is a Tea-Party Republican and wrongfully claims that her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, was a Republican even though Martin Luther King worked tirelessly against Goldwater and other Republicans throughout his lifetime. After Coretta Scott King came out in support for human rights and LGBT civil liberties in 2004, Alveda’s vitriol hit a new high. Alveda King quickly attacked Lynn Cothren, Coretta Scott King’s openly gay special assistant of 23 years. 

Psychoanalytic Psychology, July 25 , 2011; when a person feels as if they are supplanted by a superior person or fears that there is another individual who receives more recognition, as with Coretta Scott King, the individual, such as Alveda King, reverts to pathological narcissism; cp. Civil rights activists uniformly reject the protestations and pretenses of Alveda, denouncing her as ruining the legacy of Martin Luther King that she repeatedly demonstrated a lack of familiarity with and view her as a fraud (recollection and familiarity are not the same; performance is more parsimoniously accounted for by a single mnemonic process that drives both recollection and familiarity estimates, and Alveda King shows little familiarity with the Civil Rights movement; cf. David Garrow, a civil rights movement historian at the University of Cambridge has noted that Dr. Martin Luther King was a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood, and that Bayard Rustin, one of the five closest advisors to Dr. King was openly gay-which Dr. 

Martin Luther King did not denounce. Moral certainty is a stronger predictor of support for violent warfare in religious conflict than it is in geopolitical conflict and those with the least mental strength but robustness of voice and vocabulary are heralded as spokespeople for divine wrath, as with Alveda King and Glenn Beck. Alveda King has verbally attacked everything that her illustrious uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, preached and practiced.

Using Martin Luther King Jr. As Political Propaganda Is A Shameful Way To Honor Him

As Americans pull on their yoga pants for a free Monday on which to commemorate one of the country’s most influential civil rights leader, many politicians are dusting off tired old myths regarding Martin Luther King, Jr.’s political affiliation to invoke his name and memory for their own personal political gain. Filing King away as a supporter of either political party might seem harmless, but in essence, it turns the African-American civil rights leader into a widely-distorted propaganda tool, and diminishes the true impact of his work and legacy. Aware of the influence he had as a leader and the necessity of both parties to bring about social and political reform, King made a conscious effort to maintain a bipartisan position in politics, and did not officially endorse any presidential candidates during his lifetime. Republicans have repeatedly claimed King as one of their own, going so far as to use his name on billboards aimed at wooing black voters. Republicans’ belief that King was a card-carrying supporter of theirs can be traced to Dr. 

Alveda King, a niece of the late civil rights leader. My uncle Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during his lifetime was a Republican, as was my father, his brother, Rev. A. 

D. King, and my grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. The Republican party historically has supported the rights of the oppressed. In 2011, the fact-check monitor sought to correct that myth, and cited a statement from Steve Klein, the communications director of the King Center in Atlanta in 2008, as well as an excerpt from the autobiography of King’s wife, Coretta Scott King, which both assert that the activist never confirmed he was a Republican, but instead purposefully tried not to identify with either party. 

Despite serious evidence contradicting them, Republicans continue to claim ownership over Dr. King’s political leanings. While Democrats have not rolled out campaigns advertising King to be a registered Democrat, his name and image have been invoked in significant and strategic ways by President Barack Obama, and more recently Bernie Sanders, as a means of connecting with voters. In announcing his executive action on gun control on Jan. 5, Obama quoted King, as if to imply the late activist would have backed his policy decision. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. 

Bernie Sanders has never said that he believes King, whom he saw speak at the historic 1963 March on Washington, would advocate for his presidential campaign. In many ways, in the hands of historians and politicians alike, Dr. King has become an over-paraphrased and often-exploited brand.

The shame of Alveda King

Look, it was one thing when Beck proclaimed that he was trying to reclaim the Civil Rights movement. Everything I’ve learned about the man who led the movement that made an appointment with destiny that day in Washington leads me to think that he wouldn’t appreciate a little-known relative claiming to speak for him while lending the family name and the credibility that accrues with it to a person who has so poisoned American political discourse of late. The King children have been known to battle with each other and with other people over the monetary value of the words and image of their father.

Here’s Why Dr. King’s Niece Doesn’t Think Trump Is Racist

Let’s break this down it has been proven that the economy improving is a rollover from the Obama administration, which Trump takes the credit. We are already seeing the effects of Trump giving tax breaks to major corporations, Walmart increased their minimum wage but within days closed over 60 stores. Expect more corporations to promote increases and bonuses but layoff thousands of people, which will not help the Black community and might undo the progress Obama made. Plus, his white supremacist team and dangerous racism. It is safe to say Dr.

Trump nominates Martin Luther King Jr. niece to federal planning commission

The appointment of King was made in a White House press release Wednesday. She, along with two others, was appointed to the commission planning events honoring orator and abolitionist Frederick Douglass on the 200-year anniversary of his birth. The commission was established by bipartisan legislation signed into law by Trump in November that was sponsored by several Maryland and D.C. lawmakers. Douglass, who was born in Maryland around February of 1818, was a national leader of the abolitionist movement after escaping slavery and fleeing to the North. 

King did not immediately respond to a request for comment on her appointment to the commission. Trump has been the subject of controversy regarding racial issues, and in December civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis refused to attend to opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum due to Trump’s attendance.

Trump nominates Alveda King for Frederick Douglass commission

Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr., and a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, has been nominated by the president to serve on the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission. The announcement comes roughly a year after Trump implied that Douglass, a former slave turned social reformer and abolitionist, was still alive. For a president, that has been accused of racism, Alveda. King has been one of his few African-American allies as a constant presence and advocate. Without getting specific, King said the commission will work this year to honor and highlight the work of Douglass, who was born a slave on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on Feb. 20, 1819. 

Douglass escaped slavery in 1838, taught himself to read and became a gifted orator, forcefully speaking out against slavery. He wrote at least three autobiographies, championed the rights of black soldiers to fight in the Civil War, and was a confident and friend of President Abraham Lincoln. Find out more about this Civil Rights icon and hear her speak.

Dr. Alveda King Counters Trump ‘Racism’ Claims, Slams Facebook for Blocking Pro-Life Message

There’s all other kind of legislation and things that President Trump is passing, including getting a lot of black folks out of jail – he’s working on doing that believe it or not and putting them back to work. Putting America back to work – African-Americans especially because our job rate or our hiring rate was so low and it’s going up along with everybody else’s rate. He sees Americans as the people he is supposed to serve and he’s doing that. Trump himself similarly dismissed the accusers, which included Rep. Lewis himself, earlier Sunday. 

He cares about the plight of everybody who’s been under-served, mis-served, mistreated, and he’s equalizing that. King also expressed her frustration with tech giant Facebook, who recently blocked the pro-life Roe v. Wade documentary – on which she is collaborating with other activists – from raising funds from the social media site’s ads. Facebook later yielded to pressure and allowed the team to crowdfund.

Despite the partisan firestorm that has resulted from Mr. Trump’s remarks, elected officials in both parties publicly celebrated Dr. King’s work in Georgia, his birthplace and the site of his marble-encased tomb along Auburn Avenue in Atlanta. During a visit to Georgia last week, Mr. Trump approved legislation that upgraded the designation of National Park Service sites that honor Dr.

Jon Voight, Alveda King Making Pro-Life Roe v Wade Film

This is the untold story of how lied and manipulated Jane Roe, the media, and the courts into the decision to allow abortion in 1973. The film also will address the racism intertwined in the abortion industry through Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and others, and Jefferson’s fight for unborn babies as well as people of color. Jefferson was the first African American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School. Will play a U.S. Supreme Court justice, and Ms.
