Video: MLK niece says her uncle would have been a pro-life social conservative today

posted at 12:10 pm on January 16, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Today we honor Martin Luther King Jr and his contribution to our nation through the non-violent and ultimately successful struggle to restore civil rights to all citizens of the United States — a struggle that took his own life in a 1968 assassination. His niece, Dr. Alveda King, fondly remembers her uncle and her own father in this segment on Fox & Friends on this holiday. Dr. Alveda King is a tireless activist for the pro-life cause, and she asserts in this interview that had her uncle lived to see today, he’d be considered a pro-life, social conservative:


It’s always a little dangerous to take historical figures and plug them into current political paradigms. If anyone can do that well, though, it would be the family of those historical figures, especially those with direct personal experience with them. It’s also very possible that other members of MLK’s family will object to this characterization, but it’s hardly a new claim for Alveda, who has insisted for a long time that her uncle would have found abortion on demand abhorrent, both as a preacher and an advocate for the African-American communities of the nation.

That is one of the ways in which the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr challenges us. How do we see “the Dream” today, and how can we best ensure that people will be valued not for the color of their skin but for the content of their character? How do we value them at all if we throw away millions of Americans before they even have a chance to enter our world simply for being inconvenient?

I’m sure he’d extend his support of non-violence into the womb. Back then, it wasn’t much of an issue. Before 1968, nobody would believe how common and accepted abortion is today. Fifty years ago, you’d have to relate it to Nazi Germany to even describe it.

Until the 60s most blacks were Republicans for the same reason that Lincoln was an extremely popular name among black Americans. The Republican party was in large part responsible for freeing the slaves. Also, you used to hear all the time when I was younger, “thats the first Republican to win X race in Texas since Reconstruction”.

txmomof6 on January 16, 2012 at 12:24 PM

All the other civil rights leaders went far-Left wacko. Sharpton, Jackson, Bond, Mfume, etc. Too much money & influence in the guilt racket. My gut says MLK would have done the same. The cultural/political pressure would’ve been too great, IMO.

No way to now for sure. I do know that conservatism, on matters or race, is more in keeping with MLK’s message than liberalism.

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’” ~ Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. 1963

MLK’s dream will never be realized until liberal racism and Democrat plantation politics is crushed and ground into dust.

Roy Rogers on January 16, 2012 at 12:32 PM

Dr. King gave a speech at the 828 rally–It was astounding and powerful, probably the most significant speech of the day. If I could paraphrase..”What kind of society allows the womb of mother’s to be a bloody battlefield upon which our children are sacrficed in a bloody war.”

a bad paraphrase but there were some powerful quotes regarding abortion, the magnitude, the immorality of it and the societal effects. Today would be a good day to link that speech as an update to this post.

ted c on January 16, 2012 at 12:33 PM

It’s always a little dangerous to take historical figures and plug them into current political paradigms.

True enough. But some things seem clear: Today’s identity-group politics distinguishes people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.

Today’s left sees people as members of a racial, gender, sexual preference, age or other constituency group, instead of individuals standing on their own merit.

The cure for racism is individualism.

petefrt on January 16, 2012 at 12:33 PM

Most Republicans aren’t willing or are unable to make a case for Blacks not to voted deomcrat AND not be labeled racist. I can’t say I blame them. It is a hard and tough line to walk. I don’t think that is what Dr. King wanted. He wanted people to talk regardless of a wrong comment they may or not make.

MLK wouldn’t even have a holiday in his name were it not for guilt soaked white Liberals seeking an excuse to give blacks a holiday of their own. He may have been a great man who did great things but his accomishments, IMO, don’t rise above those of many other great Americans. Certainly not to the level of federal holiday. Of course Liberals would condemn me as a racist for this opinion.

I mentor a 50 something black woman and she was angry last week when we met that today isn’t a day off from work. I told her that MLK was a Republican just to get her reaction. She deflected.

Charlemagne on January 16, 2012 at 12:36 PM

Perhaps today is a bad time to remind people that Martin Luther King Jr. was probably not named Martin, certainly had a ton of extra-marital affairs, and was closely associated with known Communists.

NotCoach on January 16, 2012 at 12:38 PM

Excerpts from two candidates Gingrich and Perry on MLK day in SC.

“Gingrich gave a short speech today, but told the predominately black voters in the room of the inspiration he drew from Dr. King’s birthday.

“The very first bill I cosponsored in 1979 as a new freshman congressman from Georgia was the holiday for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And as a Georgian I felt a particular obligation to stand up and say this was the right thing to do,” Gingrich said.

Perry, who often stresses the need to take faith into the public arena, urged the crowd to follow the example of King and live their faith in their daily lives.

“The idea that there are individuals out there who say, oh y’all, Sunday is for faith, Monday is for secular things. Oh no,” said Perry. “Monday through Sunday is to speak of values and all of us need to be engaged in the public arena speaking about the values that are important to us. Martin Luther King did that every day.”

Perry shared his decision to appoint the Wallace Jefferson, the descendant of a man sold as a slave in Texas, as the first African American justice to the state’s Supreme Court. Perry ultimately appointed Jefferson as the chief justice in the state, telling the crowd he wanted to show young African American children the opportunities available to them in life.

“That is the powerful message that we as Americans have the opportunity to tell day in and day out. That is our challenge as Americans. Don’t just talk to me. Show me, show me the power of Martin Luther King. Show me the power of what you believe in your heart, reflected every day in your values, the way you live your life, the way you talk, but more importantly the way you walk.”

Jesse Jackson was, at one time, antiabortion. But the only path for him to obtain political success was the Democratic Party, and the Democratic Party embraced baby genocide thinking it would be a winner. I don’t know if he ever had any principles, but he threw them overboard if he did sometime in the late 70s for political gain.

If someone is a hypocrite, broken, and associates with known communists then one should think very carefully before attaching any kind of moral significance to their political positions. MLK the political figure was every bit as tricky as MLK the private person, if he could even be considered a private person given how he put himself out there.

As for leftists, the above paragraph takes out all three legs of the pedestal they put him on so that they could warp his legacy and project onto it.

annoyinglittletwerp on January 16, 2012 at 1:08 PM

Given MLK’s move to the left in the last few years of his life, I believe if he were alive today, King would have a lot more in common with Jeremiah Wright than with Herman Cain; just read King’s April 4, 1967 address at New York’s Riverside Church.

MLK made open his allegiance to the anti-war movement, and embraced the progressive belief that the US government was “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today”.

We have no way of knowing where MLK would have gone after 1968, but I see no reason to think he would have reversed his growing sympathy for the black power movement and its rejection of non-violence.

The MSM has helped cover up MLK’s growing militancy in favor of the image of “King the dreamer”, much like JFK the pragmatic conservative and staunch anti-communist (that’s what he was, Democrat or no) is portrayed as a fallen liberal icon and peace advocate.

MidniteRambler on January 16, 2012 at 1:09 PM

What the Libtards, the Democrat Party and the Mainstream Media are doing to King’s legacy is nothing short of character assassination.

I honestly believe that President Lyndon B. Johnson was party to the assassination of the Rev and Dr MLK, specifically for the purpose of hijacking the Civil Rights Movement.

There is a significant amount of evidence to support that theory, but not enough to prove it.

Still, kudos to you for having the wherewithal to say it. :)

Why is it so easy to judge people by their faults, rather than focus on their contribution to society? Martin Luther King Jr shared many of his ideals, and goals. My favorite quote is;“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction … The chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.” Only perfect people should fault him for his marital indiscretions.

I work with a black conservative. He is about the right age and says he was connected with Dr. King and Jesse Jackson. He broke with Jackson after a conversation about leveraging white guilt as a means to an end.

“about the right age” WTF? Did he teach you the secret handshake? Not all black people know each other.

It is very easy to refute liberal bigotry. Just stop with the lies and bullcrap.

Contessa Brewer wants to know if Dr. Alveda King has a degree in African-American studies.

Classic! LMAO @ work.

Perhaps Brewer’s first name should be changed to Cluelissa?

The liberal race-baiters have consistently twisted what MLK said and did to their own advantage, power and profit – and they hate hearing the truth.

Just like Jews are naturally obsessed with greed and money but since I’m not it’s only because I’m an exception who’s managed to rise above my inborn impulses.

How do we value them at all if we throw away millions of Americans before they even have a chance to enter our world simply for being inconvenient?

“But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby” from President Mistake himself..

Obviously, Dr. Alveda King is a Christofascistgodbag who dishonors her uncle’s memory. Also, she is clearly not a real black person. [/DNC spokesidiot]
