Day of National Disgrace

An Open Letter to Glenn Beck

Dear Mr. Glenn Beck:

Ok! I know that you aren't really stupid, at least not in the intellectual sense. Your show is both informative and entertaining. There is little doubt that you are bringing information to the public that may not be easily obtained anywhere else.

But how can you be so naive about one of the biggest con jobs ever foisted on the American people. I am sickened by your praise of Martin Luther King. I grow weary of hearing you tell us of his noble exploits. I am tired of and astonished at your ignorance of this man. Why don't you know? Indeed how can you NOT know?

I have to admit, I am a little annoyed by your mendacity concerning the life of Martin Luther King.

How can a person who has a first class research staff at their disposal not be aware of the sinister life and political associations which King embraced? Maybe you should ask your research staff why this information has been kept from you?

Perhaps it is because you are of a generation that grew up under the propaganda ministry of public education that voided your knowledge of King and his activities. The biggest social change brought about by the progressives was the Civil Rights (Social Justice) act of 1964.

After all, you were only 4 years old when King was fatally shot as he stood on the balcony of the Loraine Motel in Memphis. You don't remember the OLD America. You were never a part of it. Though you attempt to speak of it, inspire others to grasp it, you fail to understand it. This OLD America with its grounded principles of Faith, Hope and Charity is an ideal which you tout but fail to grasp.

Martin Luther King was a progressive which worked to destroy the old America with a new vision. He associated himself with progressives, socialists and admitted Communists. His vision of "Civil Rights" (read Social Justice) was the destruction of property rights. Certainly you know property rights is the central theme by which individual rights are obtained. Individual rights can only exist within the context of property rights. The theme of the Civil Rights movement was "Human rights are more important than property rights."

But that was before your time. You are a victim of the very progressive propaganda that you are seeking to protect others from.

In your show you like to look at the associations that various people in the Obama administration have with socialists and progressives. Then you proclaim if they have these associations they are apparently in league with each other or at least they are a bad judge of character.

What about you Mr. Beck, are you in league with the ideals of Martin Luther King and his associates? Or was King simply too stupid to know the character flaws of those he associated with. And what about you. You want to embrace Martin Luther King, but will you also embrace his associates?

I recall that you stated on one of your shows the principle that if you hang out with rotten, nasty people, then you will become a rotten nasty person. So who did King "hang out" with. who were his mentors?

I wonder if you even care. Is it easier to hide under the pillow?

In 1972 , J Michael Arisman, a Midwest Training Consultant for the National Education Association authored an article titled Alinsky for Teacher Organizers, which shows the power of teachers to organize communities for social change. To help show the success of Alinsky's teaching, Arisman says, "Martin Luther King, Ho Chi Minh, and Fidel Castro, suggest the wisdom of this advice"

It is interesting that he points out Martin Luther King, North Vietnamese Communist dictator Ho Chi Minh, and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro as excellent examples of those who followed the radical progressive and socialist agenda of Saul Alinsky.

You want to glorify King's non-violent tactic to bring about social change - the same tactic used by Gandhi. Was King a brilliant strategist? Did he successfully manipulate the press and our compassion to bring about his objectives? The answer to both questions is,"yes." There are few who would deny that he was a sagacious advocate for the civil rights movement.

King used Gandhi's tactic of "non-violence,"as advised by Alinsky, so that he could successfully manipulate our compassion. I have no objection to those who want to admire the tactics but only to those who want to admire the man. Martin Luther King differed from Stokley Carmichael and H. Rap Brown only in tactics not in objectives and his associations certainly prove my allegation.

What do you think?

King 's mentor was W.E.B. DuBois. who died one day before King's I have a Dream speech in Washington D.C. At the urging of King a moment of silence was held to commemorate the life of W.E.B. DuBois. However, DuBois, King's mentor, was a well known Communist and upon the death of the brutal Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin DuBois wrote in the March 16, 1953 edition of The National Guardian,

"Joseph Stalin was a great man; few other men of the 20th century approach his stature."

Dr. Martin Luther King, the man you want us to honor and respect, chose as his mentor a man that admired the most brutal dictator of the 20th century.

That seems odd - don't you think?

But DuBois' communism didn't seem to bother King. Just forty days before he was assassinated, King spoke at Carnegie Hall in New York City honoring the hundredth anniversary of Du Bois' birth, stating, "It is time to cease muting the fact that Dr. Du Bois was a genius and chose to be a Communist. Our irrational obsessive anti-communism has led us into too many quagmires to be retained as if it were a mode of scientific thinking."

How can you not have known this?
King admired the Communism of DuBois!
Is this the man you want us to idolize?

Who Were King's Other Associates?

How about Bayard Rustin, who, along with King and Alinsky had studied Gandhi's teachings. Rustin was another one of King's mentors and advisors. He was the main organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. This close associate of King was also an open homosexual, supporter of democratic socialism and had cozy ties to the Communist Party. Many of Kings supporters were concerned that his close association with Rustin would damage the civil rights (Social Justice) movement and advised King to distance himself from Rustin.

James Farmer, was a close associate of King. He was in jail at the time of King's 1963 March on Washington. However a speech he had prepared was read to the audience. During the 1950s, Farmer served as national secretary of the Student League for Industrial Democracy (SLID), the youth branch of the socialist League for Industrial Democracy. SLID later became Students for a Democratic Society. He was also named honorary chairman of the Democratic Socialists of America. The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is an affiliate of the Socialist International, a federation of social democratic, democratic socialist and social progressive.

Progressives - remember those are the guys you keep warning your viewers about. But are you telling your viewers about how King surrounded himself with these progressives?

Why don't you make King's progressive associates a topic of your next show?

Stanley David Levison was a life-long activist in progressive causes. But he is best known as an advisor to, and close friend of Martin Luther King, helping to write speeches and organize events.

Levison was instrumental in all the activities of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the organization established by King. He was in charge of much of the fund raising of the organization and took on many of the publicity tasks, in addition to serving as King's literary agent. He was also a close adviser of King.

Levison was introduced to King by Bayard Rustin, in 1956 and was in active leadership of the Communist Party USA in the 1950s.

Gosh, Glenn, did you over look that little tidbit?

Robert Williams. In the 1960s, Williams, fearing an arrest by the FBI, fled to communist Cuba as a guest of Fidel Castro and made radio addresses to Southern blacks on "Radio Free Dixie," a station he established with assistance from the Cuban dictator. He advised American Negroes to arm themselves and prepare for war. In 1965 he left Cuba and lived in communist China. He returned to the U.S. in 1969 and it was assumed by the United States government that he aspired to fill the vacuum of influence left after the assassinations of his good friend Malcolm X and Martin Luther King,

At his funeral in 1996, King's friend and associate Rosa Parks, who launched the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott which ignited the popularity of Martin Luther King, spoke of the high regard civil rights activists had for Robert F. Williams.

Another associate of Martin Luther King was James Dombrowski. Dombrowski along with Myles Horton and Don West created the Highlander Folk School in Mounteagle, Tennessee in 1932.
Paul Crouch, who defected from Communism after serving for many years as the top U.S. Communist in the South, and who taught revolution and subversion for the Communists in Moscow, testified before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee as follows: "Dr. Dombrowski told me on several occasions that he preferred to be called a Left Socialist rather than a Communist; that he could serve the revolutionary movement better under the Socialist label than the Communist label."

The Highlander Folk School was closed down in 1961 by the state of Tennessee for conducting subversive activities. Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King both attended the Highlander Folk School. The school later reopened as the Highlander Cultural and Research Center in New Market, Tennessee.

The FBI web site clearly states that Don West, one of the co-founders of the Highlander Folk School was the district director of the Communist Party in North Carolina. Myles Horton, an avowed socialist, claimed he had first met King during his junior year at Morehouse College. He invited King to participate in Highlander’s anniversary celebration in 1957. While attending the celebration, an undercover agent sent by the Georgia Commission on Education took a photograph of King sitting along side well know communists such as Abner Berry and Jack O'Dell.

During the 1950s, Jack O'Dell was a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). When federal marshals attempted to serve O'Dell with a subpoena he fled. However, enough party documents were found to establish that O’Dell was in fact the district organizer of the Communist Party in New Orleans.

In the late 1950s O'Dell withdrew his membership from the communist party to work in the Civil Rights movement in the South. He worked with Martin Luther King, Jr. and was a director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Because of O'Dell's involvement with the Communist Party, King was advised by many to distance himself from O'Dell. After conferring with King, O'Dell decided to accept a less prominent post within the movement in order not to alienate important allies of the Civil Rights (Social Justice) struggle; nevertheless, he continued to play a decisive role in the SCLC, as well as in King's move towards the political left.

King also had close ties and admiration for Ann and Carl Braden. Ann Braden was one of the white Southerners singled out for praise by King in his celebrated "Letter From Birmingham Jail" in 1963.

The Bradens were life long socialists who also worked on Henry Wallace's campaign for the presidency on the Progressive Party ticket in 1948.

It is not surprising that socialists such as King's friend Carl Braden would support Henry Wallace who advocated friendly relations with the Soviet Union, an end to the Cold War, an end to segregation, full voting rights for blacks, and universal government health insurance.
Upon the death of King, Henry Winston, National Chairman of the Communist Party, USA led a delegation of mourners to the funeral of King. The Soviet Union sent messages of sympathy as well. Memorial meetings took place all over the Soviet Union: factories, halls, and theaters, even Moscow University. Waldeck Rochet, general secretary of the French Communist Party sent his warm regards and Poland’s Communist paper The Worker sent condolences to Corretta King. William Patterson, secretary of the Negro Department of the Communist Party, USA sent a telegram to Coretta King, wishing her the best: "Tonight we will join with all progressive mankind in expressing the deep pain and anguish at the monstrous assassination of your illustrious husband."

My dear Mr. Beck, certainly you can't be ignorant of these socialist connections of Martin Luther King. But maybe you are. But at some point this open letter is going to fall in to your hands. At some point a colleague is going to hand you this open letter and you will have to face the facts I have presented here.

Will you have the courage of Franklin, Adams and Washington. Or will you sacrifice the truth for expediency.

In that day, will the image in your mirror be proud of you?

My, my, my. How you forget that MLK fought for the rights blacks who treated as 2nd class citizens, and what exactly makes you think that the Founder Fathers even share views. And you wonder why you're called a racist. What ever flaws King may had, his legacy of civil rights overshadows them.

Anonymous said...

Dear Anonymous above. It is interesting that King, as you say, fought for the rights of Blacks" which makes him a hero and Robb fights for the rights of Whites and that makes him a demon.

Anonymous said...

Let me add:
Why is fighting for the rights of Blacks more special than fighting for the rights of Whites?

How about the being oppressed into poverty, not allow to vote, not allow into certain establishments, not able to get a fair trial. Tell how did white people suffer these conditions over 40 yrs. ago?

very informative letter Pastor Robb! there's a lot here i didn't know about. I'd like to see this letter go out to Limbaugh, Savage, Hannity and the others.

Dear person in the second and third comments:

The thing you fail to see is that while whites never were treated as second-class (not to mention put into slavery) blacks were constantly oppressed. And I am not saying that non-white rights are more important than white rights; I am saying that the rights of whites in America had always been superior to those of blacks, including during the "separate but equal" time. Martin Luther King set the bar at a level for all races.

Mekibos said...

Please Read a Personal Appeal From Mekibos-
Robb is trash, who thinks of stuff like this but a hardcore racist... Its a shame if anyone agrees with Robb.

So exactly what rights are Robb fighting for? Nothing, not a thing close to what King, Ghandi or any other "True" leader has done. He couldn't tell you flat out what he believes in without beating around the bush. What a shame indeed.

Now tell us Robb what exactly do you stand for, what rights are you fighting for? Who are the oppressers?(let me guess the Jews, you and ever other Bigot's scapegoat, whose next Latinos?Blacks? or will you try to say "I just don't understand because I have no "love" for my people". Maybe you'll go back to the ole "name one violent white community")

It my be sound harsh but it is what it is. You try to use fear/ignorance to win your battle, but it won't win the war.

(Your probably delete this but hey it means you know you have nothing to stand by other then your own racist agenda) How Pathetic...

Mekibos said...

Also please don't try and use lame excuses. Make a blog that states your actual beliefs and principals. (As of now you come of no more than a bigot who tries to use reason but you forget you can't be a Bigot and have reason.)

End of appeal.
Sincerely yours

In your opinion, it is a 'National Day of Disgrace'. Why? Because Mr. King sought to have some semblance of rights for his African race in America, where the caucasions/Europeans brought them? Because he was living through a time where cops, White citizens, and the law(Jim Crow) were blatantly hateful toward the Black man,woman, and child? Because he knew the obvious fact that all men were created equal? Because he didn't accept being labeled 3/5ths of a man, and judged by the perception of whites?

I often wonder about some of the so-called christians in America, and if they even know what the religion is based upon. The Klan should feel lucky that Mr. King didn't preach violent means for justice because his followers would have surely obeyed considering the social climate for African Americans, which would have undoubtably led to Civil War II. Some food for thought- the Nation of Islam, Black Panthers, and Black Liberation Army uniting against the Klan? This is what would have resulted had it not been for the honorable Mr. King.

'Pastor Robb', just imagine had it not been for the non-violent teachings of men like Mr. king. Try and look past your disgust for the African ("negroe" as you would say) one time, and see it from the perspective as a human being looking from the outside in.

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ' 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown , and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids...?

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America 's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

Honor our Veterans - it's the right thing to do.

I am
Not racist,
Not violent,
Just not silent anymore.

Just like it is unclear why bad things happen to good people, it is also unclear why so high a percentage of African Americans are criminals and lack self-respect, which is then passed on to their children. However, it is just a percentage, not the entire race. Stereotypes have a horrible way of grouping an entire race of people together.

You could also ask how Caucasians were mentally capable of lynching thousands of Black men,women, and children(maiming, burning, dragging, etc.) Or why white kids turn psycho and shoot their fellow students in school. Or why adult White males commit horrendous acts of child molestation on young children.

We can dissect each case and determine root causes, but it still is only a percentage of the race, and shouldn't be categorized as being definitive of an entire race.

I too, would love to know why such a high number of African-Americans are criminals, and lack the drive to better themselves and their community. I am an African-Sicilian, and I literally hate hearing and knowing about the actions of my fellow African-Americans, and how these actions make an entire race look like animals. It's up to an individual to be mature and sensible when determining the merits and character of another human being, and to look past the stereotypes of a race of people. For whatever reason, America is renowned and notorious for having an issue with prejudice and hatred. That's a good question for WHY.


Mekibos said...

Dear Patrick J. Buchanan(I guess I've started some sort of trend)
I don't think this blog has anything to do with president Obama. In my opinion he has done nothing more and nothing less for the black or white community. People like you hold America from moving forward, support the president,you don't have to agree with him on every issue but to try and reject everything he does, come on. Wheres the progress in that?
Also the fact you are so centered around it just being the black community is proof you are... racist.

You finish with
"Honor our Veterans - it's the right thing to do"
Well I'm asking you to "Honor your President- it's the right thing to do"

Lets a phase the truth Sir. The Aryan movement has no program, has no plan. Our ruling class jumped the ship, or is jumping the ship. In The US is about 12,000,000 manufacturing jobs and over 300,000,000 people. The 12,000,000 manufacturing jobs will support about 120,000,000 people in first world standard of leaving. The rest of people will have to sleep into poverty of third world. That is more than 180,000,000 people which will be force leave in poverty standard. The so call “liberals” are people who try to catch the 120,000,000 train, and will use any means to catch it. The dialog of “liberals” is nothing but the smock screen, directed at the poor.

Mr. Thomas Robb. What is the plan? I ask You Mr. Thomas Robb! What is the plan? I don't have one. And if I had, that would mean that there is something very wrong with the Aryans of The US. So at list, there is one good news.

Ah white guilt. This is why we are giving our country away! Guilty whites ashamed of our history. Even though America has treated non-whites better than anywhere else in the world. Given them opportunities that were not available to them in other countries. Still they complain!

~To Anonymous Jan 21 8:48AM~

I think you should look at the title of this blog again. Who is complaining? Some of us are simply stating that we don't feel Mr. King's day is a disgrace, and for obvious reasons.

You whites who are proud of your Confederate history, wonderful! But why are you SO opposed to non-whites being irritated about historical injustices to certain races?? War must be in the White man's DNA. Some of you speak on topics w/o ever having experienced the very "complaints" you so willingly criticize others for speaking about. *The Bible* talks about what happens to the dominant race who have ruled for centuries.

"The thing you fail to see is that while whites never were treated as second-class (not to mention put into slavery) blacks were constantly oppressed."
Not true. There were white slaves and endentured servants. Plenty of whites faces harsh discrimination. Plenty of blacks were treated with great kindness and made into civilized human beings in the U.S.

"Not true. There were white slaves and endentured servants."
Not many rarely were there white slaves, they usually were indentured servants. Mostly because they commited a crime.
"made into civilized human beings"
You are basically saying blacks weren't civilized to begin with, Racist ...
Please there is not way you can defend this. If you truly believe blacks and whites were treated on the same level, Today and back then, you must also think Big Foot, and flying spaghetti monsters exist.

Look you conservative/confederate lovers need to get over your case of "Butt Hurt" and get with the 21st Century. (There's nothing wrong with being Conservative, but you take it to a whole new level)

But then again I guess Ignorance is Bliss.
