MLK Niece Alveda King: Biden ‘Race-Baiting, Playing the Race Card’ with Voting Reform Rhetoric

Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., blasted President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday for “stirring up emotions to get their way” with voting legislation.

Biden said on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day that state laws requiring voter ID or banning mass mailing of absentee ballots are an “assault on our freedom to vote,” particularly for minority Americans.

But voter ID is necessary “because we tell somebody they don’t need an ID, they don’t count,” King told the John Solomon Reports podcast. “They may as well just mark an ‘X’ on a ballot. So we need the ID and sensible voting.”

King added that what “Biden is doing [is] stirring the race card, race baiting, playing the race card, trying to stir up emotion.”

“Martin Luther King, Jr. was a prophet and a preacher before he was a civil rights leader,” said his niece, a pro-life advocate. “And you have to put all of that together and represent human dignity from the womb to the tomb.

“Now, that’s not what Biden is doing — President Biden and Vice President Harris, they’re not — Nancy Pelosi and all of them. They’re stirring up emotions to get their way. It’s like having temper tantrums when you in the highest seats in this office.”

The Democrats, King said, are sowing fear around voting legislation, saying, in effect, “Be afraid, be very afraid.” 

In contrast to Democratic fearmongers and doomsayers, her uncle was “a man of faith, hope, and love,” King recalled. “And he, of course, believed in appropriate voting and legislation and the laws, but he said the law can’t make you love me, but it can keep you from lynching me.”

Jan. 6 Committee Subpoenas Tech Giants Alphabet, Meta, Reddit, Twitter

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol issued subpoenas Thursday to four social media giants – Alphabet, Meta, Reddit and Twitter – to learn about the companies’ roles in the 2020 election as well as in “domestic violent extremism” and “the spread of misinformation.”

Congressional concerns over the spread of misinformation have focused on the social media companies for years. Alphabet is the parent company of Google and Youtube, while Meta is the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.

This is the second Jan. 6 committee request for information from Google, Reddit, Facebook and Twitter. The panel said the companies offered “inadequate responses” to its August 2021 request.

“Two key questions for the Select Committee are how the spread of misinformation and violent extremism contributed to the violent attack on our democracy, and what steps—if any—social media companies took to prevent their platforms from being breeding grounds for radicalizing people to violence,” Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) stated.

“It’s disappointing that after months of engagement, we still do not have the documents and information necessary to answer those basic questions,” Thompson said. “The Select Committee is working to get answers for the American people and help ensure nothing like January 6th ever happens again.”

“We cannot allow our important work to be delayed any further,” Thompson added. Midterms are this fall and if the Democrats lose the House majority, the committee likely will be disbanded, so time is running out for the investigation.

The Alphabet subpoena focuses on the company’s subsidiary video platform YouTube. The committee says it “significant communications” took place on Youtube “that were relevant to the planning and execution” of Jan. 6, and livestream videos of the riot were posted on the website.

The committee stated that Meta platforms, notably Facebook, “were reportedly used to share messages of hatred, violence, and incitement; to spread misinformation, disinformation, and conspiracy theories around the election; and to coordinate or attempt to coordinate the Stop the Steal movement.”

The Reddit subpoena states that the ‘subreddit’ group “r/The_Donald” grew on the platform before moving in 2020 to TheDonald.win website, “which ultimately hosted significant discussion and planning related to the January 6th attack.” The website, also known as America.win, is no longer updating.

“I have been contacted by the US Government concerning the January 6th Mostly Peaceful Protests that have been mischaracterized by the Select Committee, Resident Biden, members of the news media, and Democrats in Congress. Because of their continued political persecution of many still being held without bond on what are typically minor charges, I have no desire to speak with any of them,” America.win’s webmaster wrote, explaining that the site will be shutdown for the foreseeable future.

The final subpoena to Twitter alleges that users planned and executed Jan. 6 on the platform. The committee notes that former President Donald Trump and other Twitter users “engaged in communications amplifying allegations of election fraud.” The social media platform was reportedly warned that it was being used to plan potential violence on Jan. 6.

GROSS DOUBLE STANDARD: ANTIFA Pipebomber given 300k Bond Option While January 6th Onlookers Rot in DC Jail

A young Antifa member with a pipe bomb was arrested this past January 6th at a political rally down in Florida. The suspect, Garrett James Smith, was spotted running away before he was apprehended by police and caught with a backpack containing a pipe bomb, a gas mask, pepper spray, smoke rockets, and flammable rags.

He also carried a “Direct Action” Checklist (photos provided below).

Suspect caught with Pipe Bomb on January 6th, 2022.

Smith said he was there to counter-protest a rally organized by Trump Supporters outside of Pinellas County Jail to demand the release of Political Prisoner Jeremy Brown, who remains in jail with no bail in Florida. Brown is a decorated U.S. Army special forces soldier.

According to local Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, officers chased Smith — who “stuck out” dressed all in black, including a ski mask — when he suddenly sprinted away from the rally.

Antifa man Garrett Smith in all black and a ski mask at a rally. He was caught with a bomb, apprehended, and arrested. His bond is set at 300k.

According to Gualtieri, officers found a homemade pipe bomb in his backpack, which “had the potential to be very harmful,” the sheriff warned.

“It could have been very destructive, and he could have hurt a lot of people,” Gualtieri said, adding that he was certain Smith was “prepared” to set off the bomb before he was spooked and fled.

Explosives and bombs were found in the possession of Garrett Smith.

Authorities searched Smith’s home and found another pipe bomb, hand grenade-style explosives, nails, and duct tape. Smith also wore a helmet showcasing the “Iron Front” emblem (three red arrows in a circle). This logo is used by Antifa groups.

Additionally, the suspect had until several months ago been based in Portland, Oregon- a city that’s name has now become synonymous with violent riots and the left-wing militant group.

Smith is being held on a $300,250 bond. He was charged with three counts of possession or discharge of a destructive device and one count of loitering and prowling. Contrast this with the treatment of January 6th political prisoners, who continue to suffer in prison with no bail on 22 hour a day lockdown- many of the accused of non-violent crimes like loitering and disorderly conduct.

Two-Tiered Justice System?

“We’re fortunate in this situation that something caused Smith to flee before he ignited the explosive device and the deputies were able to apprehend him,” Gualtieri said.

*Sadly, there has as of yet been no coverage of this dangerous bomb scare by a left leaning media or centrist media organization. The New York Post and Fox News has reported it- but if you do a Google Search CNN, MSNBC and all the others have not reported on this at all. (Yet they couldn’t stop their incessant phony coverage on the January 6th anniversary of the “terrorist” Trump Supporters (not a single one accused of carrying a bomb or even a gun on January 6th).

No More “Equal Justice Under Law?”

“Equal Justice Under Law.”

These sacred words are inscribed on the front of the U.S. Supreme Court Building and taken directly from the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution- which states that no state shall “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

So why does the United States government continue to politically persecute Trump Supporters who participated in January 6th and continue to let Antifa defendants back on the loose for more serious crimes?

The above case of Smith is just one example of the government and Justice Department treating Antifa more favorably while continuing to persecute Trump supporters from January 6th in ways that many have compared to treatment of political prisoners in Communist China or Russia.
