King?!? & Beck!?!

 Psycho Talk From Whom You Least Expect (A hint- Her last name is King)

Dr. Alveda King spoke at Glenn Beck's rally allegedly in honor of her uncle, the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr, who was noted for his civil rights activism, and also the daughter of his brother A. D. King. She is currently the director of African-American outreach of the pro-life group Priests for Life. She also has associated herself with Beck, not only by attending his rally, but also by appearing several times on his radio program.

"My daddy, Rev. A.D. King, my granddaddy, Martin Luther King, Senior -- we are a family of faith, hope and love. And that's why I'm here today," Dr. Alveda King said. "Glenn says there is one human race, I agree with him. We are not here to divide. I'm about unity. That's why I'm here, and I want to honor my uncle today." Earlier on that day she had also appeared on Good Morning America and made the following statement. "I'm joining Glenn to talk about faith, hope, charity, honor. Those are things that America needs to reclaim. Our children need to remember to love each other how to honor each other, their parents, God and their neighbors. I agree with Glenn on all of those principles. So that's why I'm here. For me it's principles over politics."

And so Dr. Alveda King stood before Glenn Becks rally on the anniversary of her uncles "I have a dream" speech with Glenn Beck by her side before his teabagger supporters about faith, hope, charity, honor and unity. But is that what Glenn Beck and his teabagger following about? Martin Luther King Jr, her uncle, made social justice the theme of his mission. He spoke up for the oppressed. By contrast, Glenn Beck spoke out against this thing called social justice and advised his followers to flee from any church that would preach this and that social justice were code words for Marxism. An organization as ACORN, dedicated to helping the very people that Martin Luther championed, was unjustly smeared, demonized and ultimately destroyed by Beck and the unfair and unbalanced Fox fake news for which he works. Now one is left asking, does she not see the disconnect between her uncle's preaching and that of Beck's? Does she also believe like many of Beck's wacky wonky wingnut peers that her Uncle was also a Marxist? And furthermore, did she not notice that she alone represented her family at Beck's rally?

But perhaps she belongs with Beck and his wacky wonky wingnut friends. She has for all practical purposes joined them with her absurd comments on gays and lesbians, which is as follows;

"It is statistically proven that the strongest institution that guarantees procreation and continuity of the generations is marriage between one man and one woman. We don't want genocide. We don't want to destroy the sacred institution of marriage."

What is wrong with this picture, other than the fact no statistical evidence was ever presented in which proves that the sacred institution of marriage is endangered? Insofar as genocide is being threatened for all of humanity by the presence of homosexuals, then why is the population of the world growing as rapidly as it is. If anything, these sexual outcasts do not add to the population boom in a world in which is unable to provide the adequate resources for the children who already come into it. Ms. King, you fail to honor your uncle by being at Beck's rally. If anything, you have made mockery of his memory and have dishonored him. He would have been ashamed of you.

Sounds of Silence

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence

Postscripts- 1 September 2010

To whom it may concern,
For the record, that which is being proposed to be built by a group of Muslims is neither a mosque nor is at ground zero.
It is a cultural center for Islam and it is two blocks away from ground zero. But such as it is...

To Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah & Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City,
To you, Senator Hatch I wish to express my appreciation of your defence of Muslims building their "mosque" near ground zero. Even though I have been a frequent critic of yours, because of the past discrimination against those of your own religion, which is Mormonism, you spoke out in favor of the freedom of religion in which so many of your conservative peers have seemed to have forgotten. As you have pointed out, the Muslims wanting to build the "mosque" own the property on which it will be built and therefore have the right to build it there. Thank you. To you, Mayor Bloomberg, I wish to say thanks to you as well for speaking out in defence of the Muslims and by doing so, defending the 1st amendment and so I shall. Thank you.

To Glenn Beck,
I can't believe that you have made the following claim about your recent tour of the historic sites around Washington, DC. “I went to the National Archives, and I held the first inaugural address written in his own hand by George Washington.” Being familiar with the protocol of handling such documents, I know that only employees of archives with specialized training in handling such fragile documents would be allowed to handle such documents. On the same day and to the same gathering you were addressing, you also dwelled on great length on the impotence of telling the truth as our first President knew. Guess what Glenn, you lied- just like you lied about those FEMA concentration camps. I did not know George Washington, but I am very certain that you are no George Washington.

To Republican Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona,
I heard that you see headless bodies in the Arizona desert that no one else can see and blame these imaginary decapitated corpses on illegal immigrants from south of the border. Then when you are challenged on this, you deny ever uttering this. But since you had been video taped saying this, you have ended up denying that you ever denied saying so. And since you been video taped making this last denial, shall you as an encore deny having ever uttering that last denial as well?
Just one more thing Governor- did you know that Speed kills?

To ex-Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano of Arizona,
Do you have any regrets about resigning as governor of Arizona in order to become the Secretary of Homeland Security, thus allowing the former Secretary of State of Arizona, Jan Brewer,
to be promoted into the gubernatorial seat?

To Tom Kovach , a GOP candidate for Secretary of State of Kansas,

As a former Republican Party chairman for Kansas, you are truly proving your partisan colors by manufacturing an issue to run on for Secretary of State- the state office with the responsibility of oversight for elections. With the support of ex-Senators Fred Thompson and John Ashcroft  and the backing of tea party crowd as well, you seem to be a cinch to get your party nomination this coming Tuesday. As a Republican, running for office in a predominately Republican state, you  have an edge in your quest to get elected Secretary of State. So why do you need to campaign on the issue of voter fraud even though no evidence exists that this is a problem in the state.

To Steven Colbert of the Colbert Report,

Thanks Colbert, you have inspired me. Recently you have declared that if the Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said he was not an human-turtle hybrid, you would take him at his word. Naturally this was in response to McConnell saying that he would take President Obama's word that he is not a Muslim, which was really lame of him.

I just thought I might try to top you. If the good Senator from Kentucky said he was not a radioactive artichoke-like zombie shape-shifter from the planet zrnixiahajiwu, a planet orbiting the star Alpha Centauri, I would take him at his word. I might however, question the wisdom of allowing him to be free to roam wherever he wished, rather than be immediately quarantined.
