150 more years and mission accomplished. And the Left has the wicked, demonic nerve to call the GOP and the Tea Party racist? THIS is the spirit of the Democratic Party, from its inception until …

    First of all I want to thank Apostle Claver for speaking at the North Houston Tea Party in Conroe last evening. There were a number of good speakers including “Joe The Plumber” with heartfelt and factual messages but Apostle Claver was the true standout. We were so glad we stayed long enough to hear such an inspirational, spirited message. A group of us met for dinner after the party and his speech was the main topic of discussion. The resounding feeling was that this is the energy that has been missing. No Tea Party should be held without the message, truth and passion as we heard delivered by Apostle Claver last night. Thank you Tea Party Assemblies, RagingElephants.org and thank you Apostle Claver for standing up for your convictions and thank you for your determination to defend God’s word and our freedoms as we all should.

    This Dr. MLK billboard is a wonderful step in the right direction. It saddens me that the liberal left (Democratic Party) has been so successful for so many years in dividing this country based on race for their own political gain. With the help of manipulators of God’s word such as Jeremiah Wright who drive racism, hatred and anti-Americanism among so many good hard working citizens, they continue to keep our country separated by race and class envy. Dr. Martin Luther King was about being the best that you can be. He wanted everyone to believe in themselves, work hard and succeed with the talents and gifts that God provided within them. The Democrats would have you believe that most in our country cannot succeed because of one circumstance or another, therefore you should do nothing and they will provide your basic needs. Ronald Reagan warned that any government that can give you everything can also take it all away in an instant. My fellow citizens, brothers and sisters, the idea that we need government to take care of us is not America, it’s not Christian and it’s not what the enlightened Dr. Martin Luther King believed either. He believed in YOU.

    Republicans aren’t a perfect party either for sure and it’s time to clean house of those who do not stand on their convictions, vote OUR principles and represent we the people as the public servants that they are. That being said we the “citizens” of the Republican Party invite all to join us in our belief of a strong national defense, drilling for oil and other recourses in our own country, freedom from Government, truly lower taxes for ALL people, eliminating Government corruption etc… If you are a believer in these and other conservative principles take a stand and run for office. If you can’t run for office then vote for someone who does believe in these principles, our country and most importantly YOU.

  • You gave a great speech in Conroe July 2, 2009.

  • You gave a inspiring speech in Conroe on July 2, 2009. i am going to tell all my friends to check you and Raging Elephant out. I think it is a outstanding concept.
    Thank you for your efforts and keep the faith. i do believe your message is right on and can make a difference.

  • francis p. murphy says:

    everything MLK preached, was in agreement with the GOP. a true man.

  • Matt says:

    You are one awesome speaker!! You had FIRE coming out of you mouth at the Conroe-Woodlands Tea Party. I was at the very first Houston Tea Party back in March or so, at Discovery Green and heard you speak and I told everybody about you. You have only gotten better. Man, you speak God’s word!! Please keep it up!

    -Matt

  • David J. Doiron says:

    First of all, thank you for being a man who boldly shares his faith. Our forefathers knew that our republic would not last without a Biblical world view and Godly character. Second, I appreciate your enthusiasm (en – a filling; thus – Theos/God; iasm – a state of being; i.e. “a state of personal being that exudes a filling of God”). I heard you at the Conroe Tea Party get-together on Thursday evening. Amen to all you said. Last, may God greatly bless your efforts to bring our society together to restore personal responsibility, character, and, most importantly, a dependence and deep reference for Almighty God with heartfelt gratitude for His providence.

  • Rich says:

    Also a great speech at the Katy Tea Party!

  • Tonya says:

    You gave an inspiring and remarkable speech at the San Jacinto Tea Party, and I am here to say Thank You. Thank you so much for your commitment and out of all the speeches I really think you got the crowd more motivated than any other speakers.
    I went to two tea parties and I enjoyed your speech the best. I thought to myself as you spoke, he read that book too, he read two books I read, the bible and he also read “Liberty and Tyranny” by Mark Levin.
    RagingElephants.com will be on my favorites list.
    Thank You,
    Tonya

  • J. B. Bristley says:

    I saw you at the Montomery County Tea Party. You were inspiring. Your speach was great. I went by an saw the MLK billboard you spoke about. We all need to come together as Christian Conservatives if our country is to be saved. Thank you.

  • Bet Cooper says:

    I heard your speech the the Sugar Land Tea Party in April. I yelled and applauded until I got dizzy. I love your style and I am so thankful there is someone in our area that will tell the truth without hesitation. It is time now for conservatives to speak long and loud. We can no longer afford to be drown out by the leftist liberals. Keep up the very inspiring work.

  • Kathy says:

    WOW! I saw you on channel 2 today and was introduced to the ragingelephants! You stood up to Quannel X and I was very impressed! I had no idea you existed until today and I am soooo thrilled! Keep up the great work and I will be looking forward to seeing more about you and your organization — I would REALLY like to see it on a national level!

  • komodo_d says:

    Your sign is blasphemous. Your using a MLK a Civil Right’s leader honor against the very people that wanted him dead. i wonder how much the GOP is paying you to dishonor MLK legacy? It’s wrong and I’m going to see to it that you remove the sign. It’s wrong to associate Dr. King’s legacy with the same group of people that killed him. Your a disgrace to the African-American community and all those who lost there lives who faught for your civil rights. I’m contacting MLK’s family to have the sign and Stormfront’s website removed what a total

  • Jack says:

    Thank you for posting this. It will surely galvanize opponents of the GOP to stand up against this latest outrage. The GOP did historically stand for civil rights, but that was a long, long time ago. The party now claims membership to the most open racists in the country, and using Dr. King to promote your agenda will certainly be an insult to many. So again, thank you–this will indeed further emancipate us further from the nightmare that is the GOP.

  • Jack says:

    Here’s just a tiny sample in a sea of similar comments from the GOP about Obama, this one from the Free Republicans website. Note they don’t attack his policies, they simply attack his color: “They make me sick …. The whole family… mammy, pappy, the free loadin’ mammy-in-law, the misguided chillin’, and especially ‘lil cuz… This is not the America I want representin’ my peeps,” Audra Shay of the Young Republicans refers to Blacks as “coons.” If you want to know what your fellow GOPers are creating as political art, take a gander at this: http://www.algma.com/index.php Ah yes, Dr. King would be proud…not.

  • Jack says:

    Do you not find it ironic that in the very speech you posted part of in your video, Dr. King talks about ending racism in Alabama, the state which has elected one of the most openly racist senators in the country (Jeff Sessions)? Ah yes, Dr. King would definitely be a Republican today…not.

  • Cody says:

    I just finished reading an article on foxnews.com about the ” King was a Republican” billboard. May I say “Stay motivated”. As an avid Tea Party attendee I too have seen you speak at various events. I enjoy your charisma and agree with most of your points. The only problem I have with this particular tool was this, instead of referring to Dr. Martin Luther King as a “Republican”, I feel it would be more suitable to call him a conservative. Unfortunately I no longer believe these are one and the same. Let us still steer away from the partisanship of it all, and remain rooted in the conservative values that this great country was founded on. It does excite me that you/we have caught the attention of a blatant Islam sympathizer and reverse racist Quanell X. This Race supremacist / activist needs to have a little light shed on what his true values are. I believe that once this is done he will crumble under his own biased ideals. One can not consider themselves a leader of freedom when the are clearly oppressing another. Good job and keep it up. Stay true to the promise of more.

  • Zeke says:

    Here is an interesting alternative history of racisim and bigotry coming from the democratic party.

    http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=a15_1199333754

    Point would be that racisim is not specific to just one political party as we are told to believe, its everyones problem. Both Dems and Repubs have a stained past just as our nation as a whole has been stained by racisim. We are all in this together and the only way things are going to change both politically and socially is for you and I to stand up and BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE!

  • Jack says:

    sorry just kidding Ok

    Here is the deal I am actually a very overweight and lonely person with no life. I have no job but Obama promised to pay for my gas and mortgage. He’s not increasing any taxes on myself, just the prices of most the products and services including my utilities and basically everything I have to have in order to function in life.

    I also work for a Democratic party group which floods the internet protecting our king from harm of these radical Americans who question the rights of using money for fictitious programs and wasteful spending. Who are they to say what we can do, you know. (Yes the same groups who triumphed all the McCain programs during the elections)

    Whats wrong with government controlling everyone? It’s for your own good didn’t you know? You need it you just don’t know it yet. Yes We Can !!!

    So pretty much I am really just kind of dumb so never mind what I say, again lonely and I need a new inflatable doll, last one popped.

    Jack

  • Rick says:

    Jack, it is people like you sir, who are the racists. You blindly follow Obama because of his skin color. You don’t care if he is immoral, racist, socialist, liar, or theif (and he has proven by his actions that he is all of the aforementioned) as long as he is your favorite color.

    Dr. King would have, in fact, been a Republican had he survived until this day. The Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the world do not have enough integrity to even call themselves “equal rights leaders.” They don’t care anything about being equal. They don’t want equal rights, but equal results. If a white man works harder than a black man , skip his lunch, and works overtime, while the black man does only what is required, …. these aforementioned “equal” rights leaders think that the white man should then have to surrender the extra that he earned and give it to the black man because he was at some kind of a disadvantage.

    Dr. King said you should be judged by the “content of your character,” not the color of your skin, but these “equal” rights leaders think you should have “unequal” advantage if you are not white. Not an equal playing field, but a field where minorities are “given” an advantage. If you are given an advantage, and you succeed, ….it wasn’t “you” who succeeded, …but the “welfare, afirmative action, or advantage” handed you by “the man.” So, why swell with black pride if you are still depending on “the man.” You may have left the plantation, but you didn’t go far. You are still on the property line taking handouts from your democratic liberal “Masta’s!”

    As a good Republican, and most importantly “conservative,” Dr. King would not have accepted it, or stood for it!!! He would have told you to get up off your behinds and earn it for yourself. Affirmative action is the democrats way of saying, “You ain’t smart enough to make it on your own, so Mr. White man is going to help you make though. Now, now, there, …just sit down and relax and I will take care of everything, ….oh by the way, …don’t forget to vote for me!”

    Wake up, shake yourself, and walk free of the democrats and the masters of your own self-made plantation chains!!!

  • Rick says:

    Komodo, why do you liberal continue to whine like a three year old? “I’m going to tell!”

    First of all it’s not blasphemy, and Dr. King would have been the first to tell you!!! He wasn’t God. He was just a messenger. There is no blasphemy here.

    2nd, Dr. King would not have wanted that sign torn down. Dr. King believed that everyone had a right to their opinion, …right or wrong, …everyone had a right to it. It is obvious that you are drinking Obama’s koolaid. Socialist, communist, and blind fool leading blind, gullible idiots. Maybe we should ban you and your Obama copy catting, mind numb drones from having freedom of speech on here and every other public forum!!! I bet you would be the first one to squeal like a pig, if someone tried to make you “shut up!” Dr. King believed in freedom of speech. It made what he did possible! Without it, you wouldn’t be posting on this website.

    Further more, Dr. King considered himself an AMERICAN with African descent, …..not, as you called him, ….an African-American!!! If anything, that comment was blasphemy!!! Before you call anyone else a blasphemer, …get the beam out of your own eye!!!

  • Trish Hooper says:

    I just want to say thank you for your wonderful site!!! I love you all, keep fighting the good fight! Dr King was a Republican, from what I have read. He would be disgraced to see what is happening in our great country today. I respect Dr Martin Luther King. The Republicans gave the black community what they wanted in the way of rights, but the Dems did not want to do this. Also the KKK was mostly made of Democrats from what I have read also. Just a little history. I respect the black community. Love yah all!!! God commands us to love each other. Thank you for this wonderful site!!

  • Lisa says:

    Apostle Claver,
    I am so glad you are attempting to change the lives of the black community through a powerful, positive message. Groups like the Black Panthers do nothing but instill fear and despair, the exact opposite of Dr. King’s vision for African-Americans. It is my hope and prayer that black mothers and fathers will rise up against these manipulators and listen to the truth you speak and the honest message given to MLK from the Lord Himself. Then, and only then, will African-American children live Dr. King’s dream. May God bless you and protect you all the days of your life.

  • Zack Taylor says:

    Though not perfect (none are) MLK was a true man of God, which makes him pro-life and pro-marriage (hetrosexual) and pro-personal responsibility. That certainly makes him a conservative if not a Republican.

  • Timothy Dannenhoffer says:

    A sly, devious, dishonest and underhanded statement, typical of cons:

    Now let’s be HONEST (I know, that’s next to impossible for a con):

    POLITICAL PARTIES have changed significantly over the years – Democrats use to be very conservative and racist in the south during the time of MLK, HENCE he might have been a Republican BACK THEN.

    BUT you REALLY need to have your head examined if you think MLK would have ANYTHING to do with today’s Republican Party, who are now the party of stay-the-same, conservative and bigoted ideas.

    So now, please tell everyone about Nixon’s Southern Strategy – which is right about the time when political parties and their accompanied ideologies basically flip-flopped:

    Racist conservatives who were Democrats BECAME Republicans, AND Republicans BECAME Democrats – this whole thing happened AFTER the time of MLK.

    Go ahead and try to prove otherwise.

  • Karl Nordgren says:

    Good Afternoon. I heard you on Hannity’s radio program yesterday, for the first time. I would very much like to thank you for all that you have said and done for our country.
    Keep up the Great Work!
    Regards
    Karl

  • Perry Warren says:

    I’m listening to you on the Steve & Leah show… very articulate and well spoken. Good job.

  • H Edwards says:

    Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!

    Right On!

    Keep up the great work of speaking the truth.

    Heard you on Steve & Leah Show B’ham, Al

  • H Edwards says:

    Awesome!
