  1. To really recognize Dr. Martin Luther King’s non-violence philosophy and all the good work that he did, you need to condemn Black Lives Matter and all their violence. Tell someone there will be a MLK Parade and they rejoice. Tell the same person there will be a BLM Parade and they board up the windows on their home or store.

  2. Trump supporters are the only protesters since the 1800’s to attack the Capitol in Washington DC. MLK never did that nor did BLM. The list of police officers that were arrested as contributors in this attack is growing daily. Don’t see any BLM protesters on the arrest list, just Trump supporters with screwed up lives and zero ability to think on their own.

  3. If you believe in what Dr King stood for, you must come out against the violent Black Lives Matter. BLM is a terrorist organization that goes against everything Dr King represented.
