What Obama could have said

What Obama could have said

“I accept the flowers as a memento of reconciliation between the white and colored races ... I accept it more particularly as it comes from a colored lady, for if there is any one on God’s earth who loves the ladies I believe it is myself. ... I come here with the jeers of some white people, who think that I am doing wrong.  I believe I can exert some influence, and do much to assist the people in strengthening fraternal relations... ... I come to meet you as friends, and welcome you to the white people.  I want you to come nearer to us.  We have but one flag, one country; let us stand together.  We may differ in color, but not in sentiment. ... Go to work, be industrious, live honestly and act truly, and when you are oppressed I’ll come to your relief.”

Martin Luther King certainly could have spoken these words.  Pres. Obama can never speak these words honestly because he is a race-baiting, class-conscious Communist, but Nathan Bedford Forest, ex- Butcher of Fort Pillow, ex- Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan did  at a gathering sponsored by Blacks of the Independent Order of Pole-Bearers  in 1875 to  bring about “peace, joy,  and union.” He was presented with flowers and assurances “as a token of reconciliation and an offering of peace and good-will.”

This was at a time when across his state of Tennessee, Democrats were entering another bloody political campaign violently prepared to reclaim the state government from Republicans.

History repeats itself doesn’t it?
