The past few months, Black Lives Matters and Hillary Clinton supporters have violently attacked Trump voters. Little do they know both Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X would have rejected their actions, but for different reasons.
At a Trump rally in San Jose last June, protesters accosted several participants. They surrounded, spit on, and threw water and eggs at rally goers. In some cases, protesters even physically assaulted them.
Days after the election, attacks increased.
In Chicago, while at a red light, BLM activists surrounded and assaulted a man driving a truck. One of the BLM bullies recorded as others beat, punched, and kicked the white man. On the video, you can hear someone yell, “You voted Trump? Beat his azz!”
Outside Trump Tower, a 23-year-old woman claiming to be an “anti-bullying advocate” pushed a 74-year-old Trump voter to the ground. He suffered a cut on his head and experienced pain throughout his body. I’m not sure what “anti-bullying” means to this woman, but I don’t think this is it.
Americans had enough when four black teens kidnapped a special needs white boy and tortured him for two days. To make it worse, they broadcast it on Facebook where the world could see them laughing and joking about it. The main stream media ignored the story until it went viral on the internet. Then they, along with liberal Democrats, tried desperately to deny any connection to racism and Trump. Apparently, the average citizen interprets shouts of “F**k white people!” and “F**k Donald Trump!” a little differently than those with a political agenda. The teens tied up and gagged the victim. They hit, kicked, and punched the boy followed by cutting the young man’s forehead. At one point, they forced him to drink toilet water. Labeled a BLM attack, liberals again tried to deny the connection. However, the BLM movement openly embraced and cheered the assault.
But the attacks are not isolated to BLM and white victims. Just before the election, a black homeless woman sat on Donald Trump’s Hollywood star to protect it. She wanted to prevent more damage to the already vandalized star. Clinton supporters surrounded her and attacked. After a Hispanic man pushed her over, others tore up her signs and throw them at her. This is exactly why Hillary did not win.
All these attacks are reminiscent of Malcolm X, but completely opposite of Rev. King’s approach. However, both men would condemn them.
I’m not sure what Malcolm X would have thought of Trump. It is possible Trump would have met with him just like he did Steve Harvey, Ray Lewis, Kanye West and Martin Luther King III. Regardless, Malcolm X would have been furious at the blind devotion of black voters to the Democrat Party. Rev. King would have flat out rejected the violent behavior of those attacking political opponents.
In the 1964 Presidential Election, 80% of blacks voted Democrat. Malcolm X was enraged. He explained that white voters, “are so evenly divided that every time they vote, the race is so close they have to go back and count the votes all over again. Which means that any bloc, any minority that has a bloc that sticks together is in a strategic position. Either way you go, that’s who gets it.”
He then chastised the overwhelming Democrat minority vote.
“You put them first and they put you last. ‘Cause you’re a chump. A political chump! … Any time you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you are dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that party — you’re not only a chump but you’re a traitor to your race.”
After 8 years of Obama, African-American communities are in worse shape. Unemployment for blacks saw no improvement. The poverty rate among blacks increased under Obama while their median income per household decreased. Education for blacks suffered under Obama too. Fourth-grade math scores saw the widest gap between blacks and whites since 2003. Despite that, Obama blocked school choice programs instead of improving them.
The Obama presidency has been a failure to African-Americans across the country.
Malcolm X may or may not have voted for Trump, I don’t know. Regardless, he definitely would not have voted for Hillary. The Democrat Party has done nothing for black communities and Malcolm X would not have rewarded them with four more years of power.
With the Democrat Party’s support of BLM and their physical attacks on others, Rev. King would not have either. He would have also repudiated the division and disunity Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) is sowing. In 2010, Lewis claimed Obamacare protesters called him the N-word. Video proved it was a complete and total lie. This is the same protest Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused Tea Partiers of spitting on Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II (D-MO). Again, another proven lie. It’s amazing how conservatives are falsely condemned for the things Democrats actually do but get away with in the media. This is the exact behavior Rev. King would never have allowed. Furthermore, Malcolm X would consider Lewis and Clever nothing more than Democrat Party chumps.
Eight years ago conservatives disapproved of Barack Obama but never tried to stop his inauguration. They were labeled un-American. Today, those same people are trying to aggressively stop Trump’s ceremony, pridefully declaring it patriotic. Rev. King would most definitely rebuke those planning to disrupt America’s peaceful transfer of power. Whether he agreed with Trump or not, he would never condone their actions.
So the party that prides itself as the Civil Rights Movement champions, once again proves they are the furthest from it. Especially since the movements two best-known leaders would be condemning everything the Democrat Party is doing.
But that’s just my 2 cents.
