Alveda King: Obama Politicized John Lewis’ Funeral– He Took Us Back to Segregated 1960s

By  | 

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., criticized former President Barack Obama for his eulogy at John Lewis’ funeral.

King said, “I guess we should have expected that the left, including President Obama, would take that occasion for a political moment. They’ll grab at any opportunity, that’s to be understood.”

She continued, “I’ve chosen not to politicize the death of Congressman Lewis, but remember him as a peaceful, nonviolent warrior, and encourage everyone to resolve our conflicts peacefully. However, President Obama, with wordplay, took us back to the 1960s. That was a time when segregation was still on the books, segregation was still legal, and those in power, some of them were trying to enforce that and keep that. Today when the National Guard goes in or state troopers, they are trying to protect the people of America in every community and to save lives and protect people. There is a totally distinct difference. Also implying without calling any names— he was very clever not to call any names saying that there was an effort to undermine the voting process, you know. Actually, President Trump is saying, people, please pay attention, we do want you to vote, use your absentee ballots, go to the polls. He’s even encouraged, you know, people to be poll watchers and poll workers and that kind of thing. President Trump is not trying to suppress the vote.”

She added, “We do want people to vote safely, and we need the voting process to be fair, and so to politicize the funeral of a peaceful warrior — I mean, I guess they grabbed at an opportunity to be political.”

        Obama the social activist from chicago. The man who never said a word about the sensless murder rate in his own home town. His own fellow citizens dying in our streets here every day from gang violence. Coming from the most corrupt city in our nation. makes sense when we see him stoke the fire of civil unrest!
        This man has a hatred for our country and his own people that is undescribable. The radical left is showing us every day who they really are. I hope we get the hint. I hope we wake up before it’s to late.

      John Lewis deserved better. I was not a supporter of John Lewis, but admired him staying the same man over his career. President Bush and President Clinton both spoke of the man.

      Barack Obama took the opportunity to create more hatred and unrest. He turned a funeral of a good decent man and turned it into a political speech directed at Donald Trump. Though he never said his name, that was the target of his speech. Shame on you Obama “The Fake Past-President”! So many think Obama is such a great speaker, but he is a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing.

      Obama is a sick man without a country. His main interest, along with his buddy George “Soreass,” is to take down America and push it towards communist socialism, with him being America’s “Castro!” He is a disgusting animal, a honey badger, who feeds on the organs of his prey! He has proven to be a racist of the worst kind!

    Just imagine what could have been accomplished under President Trump if the Democratic led congress would have worked for the people instead of their own agendas. Democrats made a statement after Donald Trump won the 2016 election “We Will Impeach This President”. Before he took the oath of office these left wing liberals were scheming of ways they could stonewall Donald Trump. If you think for one second that this conniving bunch of left wing socialists Democrats has our best interest as a nation, Think Again. If Joe Biden wins the upcoming election, this country will become a socialist republic leading down the road to communism.

    The Democratic Party i has been doing everything possible to make sure they put fear into going to the polls to vote. They want you to trust your vote to be handled by the USPS. USPS can’t even put the mail in the correct mailboxes anymore let alone handle something as important as your vote. If this country allows this election to use mail in voting, it will be the most corrupt election ever. We will never know the true winner and if that winner is Donald Trump the Democrats will spend the next 4 years in battle to prove that Republicans rigged the election.

    We the people need to get out to the polls and vote in person. Nancy Pelosi and her band of Socialist need to be relieved of their power in Congress. We need to get our country back to its once glory as a place that people from all over the world want to become an American and work for the American dream. Not come to our country to get a handout and to destroy our country bit by bit. Re electing Donald Trump and getting rid of Pelosi’s Posse of Left Wing Socialist is the first step in making our country great again.

      I agree with you Dave. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat Party are destroying the foundation of our Country. We have to vote Democrats out of power and say NO to Socialism. Vote Trump.

    Obama is a fraud and divisive – why don’t you go to Chicago and help your home city in a time of desperate need instead of continuing to try to destroy our country.

      Obama was the most divisive President in history. We are still suffering from the divisions he instigated into our public discourse. He is the community organizer of the Socialist movement.

    John Lewis politicized his own funeral. This is the last essay he wrote.

    Obama is nothing but a communist Muslim who hates America and will do anything to try and destroy our great country along with the entire democratic party and George Soros.

    Shameful of Obama to push the Democratic Party’s divisive and destructive ideas at a man’s funeral. I guess he’s not as presidential as the media portrays.

    Martin Luther King Jr. stood for equality and true social justice. He lived and died for those values. It is nice to see his niece has followed in his footsteps and quickly recognizes when someone is misusing their political standing and status. It is also nice to know that not all people of color agree with BLM, their marxist agenda, and their leftist comrades. Alveda quickly picked up on what Obama was trying to do at John Lewis’ funeral. Lewis was much like Martin Luther King Jr., he truly believed in real “peaceful” (not what the “main stream” media calls peaceful today!) solutions to racism in any form. Obama had eight years to correct any racial racial injustice in America, yet he did nothing. Now he indirectly calls out President Trump on this matter, what a joke! Obama is the Democratic party, he is what they have become, a traitor to the nation he misled for eight years. Thank you Alveda, your uncle, and Congressman Lewis, would be very proud of you today. Dems, the honest hardworking voter type Dem voters, are these the type of people you want leading our nation again, people who use a “great” man’s funeral for a political forum. Leaders like Obama (and others; i.e., Pelosi, Waters, Schiff, etc.) have led your party on the wrong path toward socialism and civil unrest, which they have helped unleash in our nation by encouraging or condoning or just ignoring it (and then try to blame it on Trump). Walk away, take your vote away from these foolish political leaders who pander to marxist terrorists (i.e., BLM, ANTIFA, etc.) in the “name” of social justice (and votes they can get from them). Have the courage to step out and walk away. I was an dedicated and loyal Democrat for many years but I walked away, you can too. It just starts with a single step in the “right” direction. Others have had the courage to do it – so can you! Check out the walk away website: http://www.walkawaycampaign.com, if you want (or care) to learn, more.
