The March on Washington
commemoration didn’t live
up to the original

Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/29/2013 2:30:52 AM

The sequel rarely lives up to the original, and those commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington never had a chance. “It won’t be as good as the speech 50 years ago,” President Obama told an interviewer. Obama fulfilled his prediction. His 29-minute address, 12 minutes longer than King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, was at times moving, but — inevitably — unremarkable compared with the legendary oratory he was memorializing. The first African American president, who had just turned 2 when King gave his iconic speech, is a fulfillment of King’s dream, and many

And this is a surprise...? The Conservatives were all at work, liberals/progressives only talk a good game, and the Amish were playing video games and drinking 40´s.....

Very unremarkable event.I think the audience there was even bored.I´m actually surprised they sangthe national anthem because they don´t believe in that culture at all.

I´m really sick and tired of these people still talking about justice 50 years later.How has Oprah been cheated out of justice? Does she want the government to shine the floors in her mansions?

They cling to the 60´s movement because they aren´t creative enough to move on.They love government but blame government for hoding them down by not passing laws that give them more free stuff.They don´t talk about jobs because they know the era of jobs is over with Obama.If whites are having a hard time getting hired,what chance do they have?

29 hour work weeks are just another incentive to sit home on their butts.They gave Obama credit for the SS tax cut a couple years ago but when it ran out,they blamed the employer(greed).

50 years after MLK gave that speech no one has taken his place. The Democrats hijacked the dream and learned to promote ignorance and poverty as a way to tether minorities to lifelong government dependency. Whites have grown weary of it and the liberal blacks, having given up on their desire to be judged by the content of their character think they can rule by fear - of random attacks, political intimidation and now murder in the streets. This is Obama´s legacy.

The current Black Supreme Court Justice and only Black Senator were not there. Just the usual suspects. It was a huge yawn. MLK would be very sad that his legacy has been wasted.

Waiting for the msm reports of the Tea Party spitting on the participants and using the N word. the commemoration was just one lie after another, how they all lied. Bill Clinton stating it is now harder to vote than to buy an assault rifle (what ever that is) has obviously never gone to a local gun store and bought an AR 15. He has never filled out all the paper work and in some states wait days for approval. I have little hope for the black community but with God all things are possible.

Don´t get it. At this very important event, there was not one voice from a conservative point of view. There are many worthy black conservatives that could have spoken eloquently and they were totally shut out. They rail against racism, but they are political bigots of the highest order. As all good godless progressives do, they shut out any voice that they do not agree with. It was shameful and a slap in the face to every conservative black person in this country. It was a display of disenfranchisement that Sharpton and Jackson are always pointing out, but it was real this time. Once again, the President could have bridged the gap and suggested that black conservatives be included, but he doesn´t want their message heard either. It is not much different than when plantation owners wouldn´t allow their slaves to learn to read. They might learn something.

Sorry Diana Milquetoast, he is NOT the fulfillment of MLK´s dream. His whole life is about the color or his skin. The content of his character is that of the inside of bass drum.

Someone mentioned Reagan´s moving speech at Normandy as a stark contrast to the usual self-serving narcissism served up by Obama yesterday.
Put me in mind of Reagan´s comforting, yet soaring, rhetoric after the shuttle disaster.
Reagan was a president.
How far we have fallen in less than 30 years.

Many grew up in the quota era. Too young to remember MLK but old enough to remember that the color of one´s skin was the predominate feature in advancement. It is hard to get all worked up on equality and justice when many grew up with inequality and injustice simply because they were white. No doubt the Civil Rights moment was important and needed. There is doubt about the solutions to the problem created a culture based purely on the color of one´s skin, not the content of their character.

MLK would be proud and happy viewing the progress made in 50 years. He probably would also be shocked at the deteriation of the Black family and the black nock killing in our cities.

No conservatives were invited to speak at the commemoration, but it´s also more than likely that, if MLK had been able to rise from the dead and visit Washington, he would not have been allowed to speak either.

That wasn´t a commemoration for MLK it was a white hate fest with a group of racist hung up in the 60s still griping about equality.
They heard speeches from the likes of Obama the American version of Africa´s Musgabe. I don´t know what Oprah has to complain about except that whitey did something at sometime to a black in the south back in the 40s.
Blah, blah, blah same old rhetoric. I´m tired and unconcerned about their so called plight. Until they blame themselves and help themselves it´s a lost race of people.
Maybe they were all shopping at K-Mart you know the one with the gangsta rapping kids going back to school.

#7 mentioned that Obama could have risen above it all and made the effort to bring the races together (as if we need his help) but Obama is all about himself and his idea for what America should look like and be like (fundamental transformation - dontcha know). Although many (too many) whites voted for him thinking he would be a force for the common good of all Americans, that was never his intention nor of his (DNC) masters. His black voters never confused their votes for him as bringing the races together. No - their votes were for payback against whitey and reparations. We shall overcome - indeed.

The classic liberal downfall: Once you have won the battle you should learn how to gracefully exit the battlefield.

Liberals never learn how to recognize victory and move on. Instead they try to magnify the slightest sparks into incendiary flames and twist all events into the molds of their latest cause. It has become absurd.

The small response demonstrates the true scope of the issue. Most people who attended came to, as Milbank says, an event. There was no greater meaning. Why? Because most of the work is already done. Blacks have equality with Whites. Now all they have to do is learn how to use that equal opportunity to build success and true independence. That is the lesson that liberals don´t want them to learn.

For me, the bottom line for the disconnect at this event is because ´the speech´ should be emphasized but they insist on elevating the man to a demi-god. MLK was not your ideal human being, as JFK was not, but words spoken by both will be appreciated forever. Judging from the way this was handled and who headlined, the words MLK spoke 50 years ago are not taken at face value, but distorted to fit today´s agenda, even by his own children. For those who came for the right reason, it was a waste of time.

I have just one quibble with #15´s otherwise great post. It wasn´t the left that won civil rights for blacks, it was the right. But 95% of blacks have bought the lie that they owe their "freedom" to the left. As long as the free stuff keeps flowing they will never understand that they are still slaves and their current "massah" is one of their own.

MLK, Jr.was inspiring and had a message. People sat through that hot humid day to listen to it. If I reacall many of them had spent the night on the Mall to congregate near the Lincoln Memorial. Park Service was going nuts, but they stayed and listened.

Yesterday´s confo was not inspiring and message was a whiny mess with a little founding father stuff thrown in. We all know that whoever was there yesterday speaking, hates the Founding Fathers. It was all BS.

MLK´s true message is embarrassing to these people because most are not capable or willing to work for The Dream. If it is not handed to them, they cry racism or injustice or whatever the complaint du jour is.

That assessment includes one Barry Soetoro Obama.

I checked in throughout this revolting display of arrogance, stupidty, obnoxious rhetoric, blatant lying, and extraordinarily repulsive people. As a safety measure, I had my vacuum cleaner nearby so I could snap it on and drown out the TV if I couldn´t get the remote fast enough.

Does anyone know if Moochelle had a cockroach crawl up her thong or if the look of rage she displayed from start to finish was inspired by having to sit so close to Oprah she could hear the big "O" laughing at her under her breath, or was it that she was sitting close enough to Caroline Kennedy to be able to hear the wooden wheels going around in her empty head? Whatever the reason, this ugly woman and failed fashion icon was one unhappy camper. Looked as though she was letting Barry have it as the climbed the steps.

Yesterday wasn´t a commemoration of anything, it was a boring and sickening display led by the best liar on the planet as he jutted his arrogant jaw into the air talking about marchin.´

It seems no one was very poud of this so-called "MLK Commemoration". It was crudly put together, it was blatantly commercialized, and it was poorly attended. The speakers were uninspiring "Noen will be rememberd past the two day news cycle"- How sad. I thought the world of Rev. King. I thought his ideas were remarkable considering the era. Well, his message was hijacked, very much like the hijacking of the ideas of Jesus. Cruel men will make a buck or political advantage out of anything popular and good- and in doing so, they destroy these great gifts to human kind.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Portland, Ore., is a nice place to live. Nothing much happens there, and that’s its charm. Oregon is perhaps the most politically correct of the 50 states, shading even Massachusetts, and Reservoir 5 of the Portland water system is a monument to the work of the weenie bureaucrat. Portland is so straight-laced, in fact, that the daily newspaper refuses to identify the Washington Redskins as the Redskins, lest it offend the native redskins. Newspapers elsewhere, with no sensitivity, report bad news as well as the good — fires, floods, riots and even wars. Sensitivity reigns unchallenged on the banks of

The Garden State has the country´s highest percentage of foreclosures among mortgaged homes -- and that´s just the beginning. Early this year, banking and real-estate analysts concluded that New Jersey had achieved a dubious distinction, passing Florida to become the state with the highest percentage of foreclosure among mortgaged homes, 6.2 percent as calculated by CoreLogic, a leader in real-estate analytics. (That percentage was actually an improvement from a year earlier.) Meanwhile, Florida’s rate dropped to 6 percent from 10.1 percent in 2012, and housing markets around the country are recovering far faster from the Great Recession. New Jersey also

The best feast ever? A Florida fisherman caught a record-setting 805-pound shark earlier this month, and then celebrated by barbecuing the 11-foot mako and devouring it with friends. "It was really good," Joey Polk told the Daily News on Monday. "It´s not real fishy. It does not have a real gamy, fishy taste." Polk caught the mako off the Florida Panhandle with the help of two cousins. The feat is recognized by the International Land-Based Shark Fishing Association as the largest mako catch ever, he said.

The Supreme Court has upheld a ban on using race in admissions to Michigan´s public university. The court was divided on the case, which overturns a 6th Circuit Court decision. The opinion, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, says the case is not about race admissions policies but about whether voters in a state can choose to prohibit consideration of racial preferences. "The plurality opinion stresses that the case is not about the constitutionality or the merits of race conscious admission policies in higher education. Rather, the question concerns whether and in what manner voters in a state may chose to

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
