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.”

    I’m not surprised. Her boss is famous for plagiarism.

Report: Texas Cop Missed Chance To Shoot Gunman At Uvalde Elementary School

Published

Police

A Uvalde police officer armed with a rifle requested to shoot the gunman who committed the mass shooting outside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, before the gunman entered the elementary school, a report revealed on Wednesday.

Some of the 21 victims killed in the shooting at Robb Elementary School, including 19 children, likely “could have been saved,” according to the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT).

The 26-page report reveals that “Prior to the suspect’s entry into the building at 11:33:00, according to statements, a Uvalde Police Officer on scene at the crash site observed the suspect carrying a rifle outside the west hall entry. The officer, armed with a rifle, asked his supervisor for permission to shoot the suspect. However, the supervisor either did not hear or responded too late. The officer turned to get confirmation from his supervisor and when he turned back to address the suspect, he had entered the west hallway unabated.”

The report additionally notes that the officer would have been justified in using deadly force to stop the gunman without the supervisor’s confirmation.

“The officer was justified in using deadly force to stop the attacker. Texas Penal Code § 9.32, DEADLY FORCE IN DEFENSE OF PERSON states, an individual is justified in using deadly force when the individual reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary to prevent the commission of murder (amongst other crimes),” the report states. “In this instance, the UPD officer would have heard gunshots and/or reports of gunshots and observed an individual approaching the school building armed with a rifle. A reasonable officer would conclude in this case, based upon the totality of the circumstances, that use of deadly force was warranted.”

“Furthermore, the UPD officer was approximately 148 yards from the west hall exterior door,” it continues. “One-hundred and forty-eight yards is well within the effective range of an AR-15 platform. The officer did comment that he was concerned that if he missed his shot, the rounds could have penetrated the school and injured students. We also note that current State of Texas standards for patrol rifle qualifications do not require officers to fire their rifles from more than 100 yards away from the target. It is, therefore, possible that the officer had never fired his rifle at a target that was that far away.”

“Ultimately, the decision to use deadly force always lies with the officer who will use the force. If the officer was not confident that he could both hit his target and of his backdrop if he missed, he should not have fired,” the report notes.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.
