President John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stood tall in the hearts and minds of almost everybody, especially Democrats. Near universal praise, even adoration, flowed from almost everybody’s mouth for both of them. Monuments were built to honor and memorialize both of them. Both of their dreams and aspirations gave almost everybody goosebumps. A song was written to honor both of their spirits, “Abraham, Martin, and John”. That’s the way it used to be. Astonishingly, that’s no longer the way it is.
Historians may write tomes about detail after detail, but the big picture is clear from both of their iconic speeches. President Kennedy’s Inaugural Address: “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
At the time, both of their speeches gave almost everybody goosebumps. Now, both of their speeches are universally disdained by the people who control America’s lives and fortunes. Kennedy and King both have been Cancelled.
For many years, people who substantially controlled America’s lives and fortunes have been advocating against the dreams and aspirations espoused by President Kennedy and Dr. King. On January 20, 2021, they took nearly full control of America. For the next hundred days, they began undoing the dreams and aspirations espoused by President Kennedy and Dr. King; they engaged in conduct and rhetoric designed to “ask what your country can do for you” and to “judge people by the color of their skin”. On April 28, 2021, President Joe Biden spoke before a joint session of Congress; he advocated and promised a continuation and strengthening of the movement to cancel President Kennedy and Dr. King.
President Kennedy and Dr. King should not feel alone. The people who control America’s lives and fortunes also cancelled America’s Founding Fathers.
What’s happening? Why? Where will we end up?
We don’t know where we’ll end up, but we do know what path we’re on. It’s a path well documented by history. it’s a path well travelled by George Orwell, Joseph Goebbels, and Joseph Stalin. It’s a path that reminds President Kennedy and Dr. King of Leon Trotsky.
Election Day 2022 will help us better understand what path we’re on. It will help us understand if the dreams and aspirations of President Kennedy and Dr. King are likely to again give us goosebumps. Your vote will tell us where you want us to end up.
