On Saturday, a woman with a pedigree that makes Democrats shake in their boots came to the defense of the President. On Fox & Friends, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. made it very clear: Donald Trump is not a racist.
During the program, conservative Alveda King called notions of Trump's racism "outrageous." King's comment was well-timed, given the recent barrage of prejudice accusations from the Left, in the wake of reports that Trump referred to a few countries as "sh*tholes" in an Oval Office meeting about immigration. Trump has denied using that word at the meeting, albeit admitting his use of "tough" language in the discussion.
Alveda King was determined to guard the President against any allegations of racism, telling Fox:
"Racism is just a word that is being bandied about and thrown...at the president unjustly...President Trump is not a racist."
Furthermore, King pointed out the objective difference between criticizing governments and insulting people based on their race, noting about the citizens of the countries involved in the Trump story:
"Some of their own leaders have taken advantage of them."
In addition to defending the President, King commended Trump and his praise of her uncle:
"[It is] outrageous to call a man a racist who continues to acknowledge the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Reverend Martin Luther King, my uncle, in a positive way and he puts his money where his mouth is, he puts his energy behind it.”
In the interview, King burned the ears of leftists in other ways: she claimed that, if MLK were alive today, he would be an activist for the Pro-Life cause:
“He said the Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the futures of his children for immediate personal comfort and safety. Abortion, of course, forces us to do exactly that.”
Furthermore, she referenced her uncle's aversion to violence as a clear indication of what would surely be his position on abortion:
“I really believe that if my uncle were here today, he would encourage us to find solutions to the problems, even women’s problems, and all problems, without having to do violence to babies in the womb. I am just convinced that he would agree with that."
In an interview Friday, King spoke truth that left-wing race-baiters and those who incessantly attack the President would do well to heed:
"As the niece of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and I emphasize the ‘reverend’ because history has not always recorded his spiritual aspects…I have been mostly impacted by his messages of unity, of racial reconciliation, of course nonviolence, and the strongest has always been and will always be for me the agape love message...One of the things that we would say [is], ‘We must learn to live together as brothers’ -- and I’ll add, as sisters -- ‘or perish together as fools.’”
