Does Even the New York Times See the Problem? MLK’s Dream vs. Obama’s Scheme

Written by William Pauwels on January 28, 2014

Martin Luther King Day was one week ago. I found myself on that day reflecting on this famous leader and follower of Jesus Christ. 

In sync with our Savior’s teaching and philosophy of love and forgiveness, MLK had a dream – that all people would live in peace and harmony and be judged by the quality of their character, without regard to their race, color, gender or creed.  Rev. King was an incredible civil-rights leader and spokesman, who believed in freedom and equality of opportunity for all.

In that light, my thoughts transitioned to comparing Dr. King to President Obama.

Clearly, Obama doesn’t have a dream – but rather a scheme – a scheme originated by Saul Alinsky, the author of Rules for Radicals.  

Alinsky’s scheme, adopted by and taught by Obama, is to tell audiences what they want to hear regardless of the facts or the truth – and to subsequently do what is required to achieve one’s goals and objectives – in Obama’s case, to convert the U.S.A. into a highly centralized, de facto Marxist/Fabian-Socialist/radical-leftist, autocratic nation.

Needless-to-say, it is inconceivable that Martin Luther King would ever have advocated the Alinsky methodology  or the deceptions of Obama the candidate – or Obama the president.  MLK would never have endorsed the success of President Obama in dragging the Democratic Party and its supporters into the Alinsky scheme toward quasi-Fabian-Communism.

After five years claiming to be working hard to turn around the declining American economy and to produce jobs for the poor and middle-class – Obama has done little more than spend money the government does not have – money on ill-conceived and over extended entitlement programs – while enjoying a lavish lifestyle beyond that of any president, king or emperor.  Crony Capitalism has flourished under Obama’s regime – for the benefit of giant corporations and their senior executives and super investors.

I note that even the New York Times did not give front-page tribute to MLK as would be expected on his holiday.  I can only surmise that the contrast between MLK and Obama is simply too great – too obvious – too embarrassing to the liberal leftist who edit this publication.  So, the Times opted out rather than honor Dr. King and embarrass their man, President Obama.
