MLK’s Niece SLAPS Obama Down To Size

Obama isn’t half the man Martin Luther King was.

Recently on “Fox & Friends,” Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., condemned former President Barack Obama for turning John Lewis’ funeral into a political rally.

According to Breitbart, King stated, “I guess we should have expected that the left, including President Obama, would take that occasion for a political moment. They’ll grab at any opportunity, that’s to be understood.”

She then said, “I’ve chosen not to politicize the death of Congressman Lewis, but remember him as a peaceful, nonviolent warrior, and encourage everyone to resolve our conflicts peacefully. However, President Obama, with wordplay, took us back to the 1960s. That was a time when segregation was still on the books, segregation was still legal, and those in power, some of them were trying to enforce that and keep that. Today when the National Guard goes in or state troopers, they are trying to protect the people of America in every community and to save lives and protect people. There is a totally distinct difference. Also implying without calling any names— he was very clever not to call any names saying that there was an effort to undermine the voting process, you know. Actually, President Trump is saying, people, please pay attention, we do want you to vote, use your absentee ballots, go to the polls. He’s even encouraged, you know, people to be poll watchers and poll workers and that kind of thing. President Trump is not trying to suppress the vote.”

Adding, “We do want people to vote safely, and we need the voting process to be fair, and so to politicize the funeral of a peaceful warrior — I mean, I guess they grabbed at an opportunity to be political.”

    Obama was and is in the gutter, and doing nothing but race baiting! Dr. Alveda King, is a clear minded Lady, of which I agree with 100%.

      SHORTLY AFTER OBAMA WAS ELECTED, THE COLLEGE PROF WHO MADE SOME TERRIBLE REMARKS ABOUT A POLICE OFFICER AND OBAMA BACKED HIM UP.. AND THEN HELD THE “BEER SUMMIT” AT THE WH.. THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF OBAMA STARTING MAKING RACE A PROBLEM,, AND HE CONTINUED TO RANT ON AND ON FOR ALL 8 YRS.. OF HIS HIS PRESIDENCY,, THINK OF ALL HIS RACIST REMARKS, HIS INSULTING REMARKS TO ALL AMERICANS.. HIS INSULTS ABOUT OUR REPUBLIC,, SO YES REV. ALVEDA KING IS CORRECT,, OBAMA USED THAT CHRISTIAN SERVICE FOR A POLITICAL RALLY.

    Who is surprised that the Dems, and in particular Obama would take any opportunity regardless of the occasion to project a political agenda. For the most part they have no religion other than that of political, power, and control. So what if he uses a pulpit at a funeral in church to push his political viewpoint, he has no ethics, no morals, and no real sense of decorum. Winning the election is all that matters to them regardless of the cost.

AND CLAIM TO BE SURPRISED HOW ANTI AMERICAN REV. WRIGHT IS… DOES THE OBAMA[S HAVE A CHURCH YET ?? OH WELL MOST COMMUNISTS DONT ATTEND CHURCH.

    If some feel the lines to vote in person would be unsafe,then why not extend the in-person voting by say 2 days. You can vote Nov. 3, 4th & 5th. To vote in person you must wear a mask & observe social distancing while in line. Let absentee ballots be OK cause you have to call & request one, & give your name & mailing address to receive it.
    In this day & age it shouldn’t be a problem to electronically keep a record of who requested an absentee ballot & their vote.
    Also put a time limit on when voting stations must turn in their ballots or they will not be counted after the limit runs out. This will eliminate ballots being found in someone’s truck or a warehouse weeks after voting is closed.

      Robert, some states already have early voting systems in place, mine does. You still have to meet all of the normal standards – be registered, show up with proof of identification (which requires residence info – that’s why student ID doesn’t meet the standard) and sign in. The upside is that it allows voters to show up at polling places around their personal schedules instead of being locked in to one single day. The down side is that it is a bigger burden on the poll workers. It seems to be working pretty well.

      PEOPLE STAND IN LINES FOR GROCERIES, ALL STORES WHO ARE OPEN, TO ATTEND A SPORTING EVENT,, SO TOO BAD IF THEY HAVE TO STAND IN LINE FOR SOMETHING AS IMPORTANT AS A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.. I DO NOT LIKE THE IDEA OF EXTENDING INTO SEVERAL DAYS, BUT START EARLIER IN THE AM. AND CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT,, AND YES, ABSENTEE BALLOTS ARE GREAT, I AM HANDICAPPED AND HAVE VOTED WITH THOSE BALLOTS FOR ALMOST 10 YRS. NOW,, GOD BLESS AMERICA. AND VOTE WISELY AMERICA.

    Obama wasn’t even half the BOY that MLK was, growing up! . . . He’s a WORTHLESS Left Wing FAILURE, like the REST of them. The burning Left Wing Run cities are proof. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    AS I WATCHED THE SERVICE FOR REP. LEWIS, I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE DISRESPECT THAT OBAMA CARRIED OUT. TO TURN THIS CHRISTIAN SERVICE INTO A POLITICAL RALLY WAS TOTALLY DISGUSTING.. REST IN PEACE JOHN LEWIS.
