BLM March on Washington

This “March on Washington” was billed as the “Keep your Knee Off Our Necks March.”   It was what you would expect.

In particular, I heard one of the preachers toss out this rhetorical question:

“Why, after all these years, are we still marching for the same things Martin Luther King was marching for?!!?”

That is not true.  They are not marching for the same things that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was marching for.

In fact, they have all but one of his goals in hand, and have had for many years.

There are laws at the federal level and in all the states, requiring equal employment opportunity, equal housing opportunity, fair hiring practices, government transparency, and more.  There are bureaucratic offices at the federal level and in all the states to monitor and enforce these laws.  There are Affirmative Action provisions in federal hiring and in all the states, and at all universities, plus subsidies for remedial training to aid marginal minority candidates to take advantage of those Affirmative Action programs.

Everything that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. sought was achieved many years ago, including the end of the Vietnam War by the betrayal of America’s friends (nearly five million of whom were slaughtered).

The only item that he sought that is still far from realized is this.  That a man is judged by the content of his character rather than by the color of his skin.

  1. Did this march actually happen? In googling it, it seems like it turned into a ‘virtual’ march. I can’t find much about an actual march, except that there were calls for one for months on social media, then those posts mysteriously disappeared and people got confused about whether it was real or not.

    In any case, I listened to Rep. Deberry’s speech – awesome! A man of integrity, and a man whose knowledge is first-hand since he lived through what he’s talking about. I liked his definition  – “A peaceful protest ENDS peacefully.”

    When was this march?

    Was it connected to the attack on Rand Paul?

    The attack on Rand Paul and others was Thursday night at a few minutes after midnight.  They were walking away from the GOP Convention after President Trump’s speech.

    The “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks” March was Friday.  The speakers’ podium was set up on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.  It was carried by C-SPAN, and you can watch it there.

    Rep John Deberry Jr. (D) of the TN State House already delivered the rebuttal to that march and its commentary.

    Thanks very much for calling Reverend John DeBerry Jr. to the attention of the Ratburghers.  His District is not far from me (15 miles).   He is running for re-election as he nears the end of his thirteenth term.

    Representative Rev. DeBerry is an old-fashioned conservative Democrat of the sort that have been purged from the Democratic Party.   You might consider him a fossil; a Pro-life Democrat.

    Just a few weeks ago the Tennessee Democratic Party threw him out.  After the deadline to file to run as an Independent, the Tennessee Democrats removed him from their slate of candidates in their Primary, at the very last minute for doing so.

    Tennessee Republicans then changed state law to allow DeBerry to register to run as an Independent.  In that State House District the Republicans never bothered to put up a candidate, so it will be a race between Independent DeBerry and a Democrat, the guy who has come in second in the past two primaries for that seat.

    This is the last purge of a conservative Democrat in Tennessee.  All the others have been ousted already, and Rev. John DeBerry Jr. is the final officeholder to be eliminated.  The Left has completed the Long March through the institution of the Tennessee Democratic Party.

    The best brief account of the man and the way he was kicked out of the TN Democratic Party is found at the Christian Chronicle, which is based in Oklahoma.  This is worth a read:

    Ousted by Democrats, anti-abortion preacher runs as independent in Tennessee

    And all y’all should watch the speech that 10 Cents embedded above.

  5. There was one speech from the “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks March on Washington” that might be of interest.  This was a canned video address from Kamala Harris that they played.

    She embraces Black Lives Matter and promotes the lie that BLM is marching for the “black men and women slain in our streets” as if there were an ongoing slaughter of black people.  She wrapped them up in the name of John Lewis, and summoned the image of the brutal murder of Emmit Till.  She praised the “creative energy of the young leaders” of BLM.

    Fake News Media ignored it because the speechifying was so incendiary that it would turn voters off of the Party of Chaos.

  9. Why, after all these years, are we still marching for the same things Martin Luther King was marching for?!!?

    We suffer a large population cohort living for free ($trillion/year Welfare); reproducing without resident fathers; unhindered by rule of law; with average ~83 IQs enjoying forced admission to “higher education” and managerial employment, complaining.

    0) Stop paying for and mandating national ignominy.
    1) Export them to Canada and Mexico.
    2) Put them back in chains.
    3) Plant them in dirt.

    … How well did Liberia work out?

    Kamala Harris’ forebears were  major slaveholders in Jamaica:  Irish resident Jamaican slave-owner Hamilton Brown owned at least 121 and 124 slaves in 1826 and 1817, respectively.  Not the IRISH!

    I know “white” ladies who have a better sun tan than that woman.  And that is not even including those people who mainly work out of doors.  It looks like being “black” is now largely a matter of one’s state of mind — or where a grifter sees the current best opportunity.

    I am saying this as a card-carrying Palestinian black transgendered lesbian differently-abled member of the LGBTQWERTY community.

    Lives don’t matter to them.  Black Lives Matter Inc. is their chosen vehicle for the moment to advance their political aims.  They push it when it seems likely to advance their Leftist cause.  But yesterday’s speakers were much too plain spoken.  Their lies were too transparent, as was their hostility to America, particularly white America and the police officers of America.  They were too virulent.  That rhetoric would not help the Leftist cause, so of course nobody will hear or see it.

    There’s been a lot of creative Identity Politics branding, but yours made me laugh out loud.  Thanks!

    It doesn’t fit their narrative. If it had been another group it would be considered such.

    Right.

    To Leftists, Republican officeholders are Oppressors, by definition.

    To Leftists, BLM rioters are Oppressed, by definition.

    No debating their definitions will be permitted.

    Wow – that is awful about the TN Democratic Party. Awful.

    Yes.  Truly despicable.

    Party Chairwoman Mary Mancini confirmed afterward that DeBerry had not been personally informed that his Democratic bona fides would be up for a vote that day, nor was he given the opportunity to speak before the vote.

    DeBerry later unsuccessfully appealed the party’s decision to remove him from the primary ballot.

    Rev. DeBerry had been in the State House so long that he had many friends on the Republican side, who came to his aid.
