Alveda King blasts Kamala Harris for copying MLK story: ‘It’s a big stretch for her to compare herself’ to him

“It’s a big stretch for her to compare herself or to sound like him.”

During an October interview with Elle magazine, Kamala Harris shared a heartwarming story from her childhood.

The catch? It’s nearly identical to a story Martin Luther King Jr. told back in 1965. 

“By the time they noticed little Kamala was gone and doubled back, she was understandably upset,” the article reads. “‘My mother tells the story about how I’m fussing,’ Harris says, ‘and she’s like, ‘Baby what do you want? What do you need?’ And I just looked at her and I said, ‘Fweedom.’” 

The recollection is uncanny to a part of an MLK interview published by Playboy over 50 years earlier. 

“I never will forget a moment in Birmingham when a white policeman accosted a little ne*** girl, seven or eight years old, who was walking in a demonstration with her mother,” he recalled. “‘What do you want?’ the policeman asked her gruffly, and the little girl looked him straight in the eye and answered, ‘Fee-dom.’ She couldn’t even pronounce it, but she knew,” he continued. 

Reacting to the allegations against the vice president-elect, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, says there is simply no comparison between the two. 

“Kamala knows that her worldview is totally different than the world view of Martin Luther King Jr., so it’s a big stretch for her to compare herself or to sound like him or use some of his same analogies,” King said on Lou Dobbs Tonight. 

“For instance, Kamala believes it is okay to abort babies up to nine months. And if you meant to abort the baby and the baby lives, then let the baby die. Martin Luther King Jr. served the public. He did not kill the public. And that would include babies in the womb,” King continued. 

“He said ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ So she is nothing like Martin Luther King Jr., but there she is playing on those emotions again.”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Published

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
