Monday is Martin Luther King Day, a national holiday throughout the United States. It began in 1986 and now, thirty years later, I think it’s fair to ask the question—does the holiday promote war or peace?

Let’s be real, folks: race relations in America or worse now than they’ve ever been: BLK riots, police shooting and being shot at, etc. And we have President Obama…a man who, despite his intentions, has fueled the fire of a growing white nationalism movement. His dream of  creating racial unity has actually done the opposite – it’s created more division.

Martin Luther King’s holiday has not stopped these events…and it might be encouraging it.

The Connection Between MLK and Obama

Martin Luther King was a major influence on Barrack Obama. He inspired Obama to adopt the social protest Weltanschauung, to see a man’s purpose as the pursuit of identity politics. Just look to Obama’s words on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington:

We rightly and best remember Dr. King’s soaring oratory that day, how he gave mighty voice to the quiet hopes of millions, how he offered a salvation path for oppressed and oppressors alike. His words belong to the ages, possessing a power and prophecy unmatched in our time.

He’s a fan, clearly. His presidency was, in many ways, a rekindling of the spirit of MLK. But things have changed his 1968; interracial marriage is no longer illegal, segregation has been outlawed, etc. It’s not utopia, true. By the same token, many of the institutional forms of segregation have been eliminated. 2017 is not 1968.

Times Change and We Must Adapt Accordingly

President Obama has overlooked something – the philosophy of a generation is NOT the philosophy of a succeeding generation. For example, poor and unemployed whites in Nebraska don’t want to hear about their “white privilege.” Europeans killed by Muslim terrorists don’t want to hear about tolerance. And people in Minnesota do not want their cities to adopt Sharia Law and implement female genital mutilation.

Welcome to Minnesota! Was this Dr. King’s dream?

I’m old enough to remember when Americans celebrated the birthday of George Washington. However, there was sharp criticism of Washington which lead to this holiday being changed to “President’s Day” It was believed that Washington’s ownership of slaves was not a positive influence on the country. Also removed was President Lincoln, who arguably did more for racial unity than anyone.

It’s clear that national holidays are about more than celebration. They’re about more than having a day off to spend with your family. They are the propagation of a world view, the attempt to convince people of an idea. That idea should be one that brings people together – not one that tears them apart.

MLK Day is Encouraging Racial Division

Martin Luther King spoke out, specifically, about the racism of whites. For example, he never mentioned the cultural tensions between Hutus and Tutsis, or Ethiopians and Eritreans. His focus was regional – on the racism that affected him,  personally. And he’s not to be faulted for that. However, make no mistake about it; he was speaking to the specific problems of the American South in the 1960s. To state otherwise is intellectually dishonest.

The “only whites are racist” narrative is a tiring one. Moreover, the longer that we promote this concept, the more unlivable the United States will become. The more we can expect “special reports” from Jake Tapper in downtown Ferguson, or college classes on “The Problem with Whiteness.” The nation will be reminded every January that the country’s history is an ugly one, as opposed to a glorious one.

Colleges are keeping the spirit of Dr. King alive…creating a nation that is full of hatred and animosity.

 

The holiday works against national patriotism. For that reason alone, it should be removed. Holidays should promote pride in a nation – not keep the people in an endless cycle of identity politics.

Conclusion

Personally, I have great respect for Martin Luther King. As far as people worthy of receiving a national holiday, I think he’s a great choice. I think he’s a hero. But at the end of the day, there are greater forces at work here. And make no mistake about it…

Martin Luther King Day is an instrument of Cultural Marxism; it’s was specifically chosen to create “order-through-chaos” and to keep the United States in a continual state of civil war. Subsequently, money can be made from the conflict that will line the coffers of globalist leaders. Until we see the reason behind these holidays, we will continue to suffer the consequences of the chaos they create.

Unfortunately, I think that it’s time to end this holiday.

  1. An outstanding post and analysis. You have drawn some very pertinent conclusions though you should prepare for attack from the snowflakes who will not seek to engage but to silence! You are also right about the influence of cultural marxism in Europe too which is slowly being rolled back by our Brexit referendum and the increasing support for anti-snowflakes policies in Hungary, Czech Republic, France, Holland, Italy. I fear there will be violence, not specifically against those of a different race or religion, but against those who try to undermine the democratic will of elections and referenda using money and celebrity power to delay, prevent, and silence.
