"I Walked With Martin Luther King, I Was Also With Lincoln When He Was Shot- Honest, I'm A Mormon, we don't lie." Mitt Romney
by Timothy Lee Unrine October 12, 2012
"In 1978, Mitt Romney would tell the Boston Globe that he and his father both marched with Martin Luther King." (Gane-McCalla, para 1)
What causes a man to want to be connected to a figure in history? Remember, the Mormon faith was based on a boy, Joseph Smith, going to the woods and talking to both Jesus Christ and God. (We won't discuss that this First Vision story took eighteen years and eight major revisions to have the First Vision as the Mormons sell it today.) Mitt was raised in a wealthy family, his father was well connected, so I'm sure Mitt met Congressmen, Senators, Governors, Mayors, business executives; yet Mormons have a need to develop a connection with a historic figures.
Mitt you did not march with Martin Luther King Jr. Rather at BYU you fought hard as President of the all-white Cougar Club to surpress an athletic boycott by universities against BYU because of it's racist policies. SO you are the type of person Martin Luther King Jr was protesting against, you are the type of person who would have supported James Earl Ray in the assassination of a black man daring to makes blacks and white equal.
Similarly, this is why you used a white-Mormon only minister of religion deferment to hide out in France, with Ann also enrolled in a Paris university (convenient to date on mission during a war, explains your baptism rate).
"In the most watched speech of his political career, speaking on 'Faith in America' at College Station, Texas earlier this month, Mitt Romney evoked the strongest of all symbolic claims to civil-rights credentials: 'I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.'" (Bernstein, para 1)
"He has repeated this claim several times recently, most prominently to Tim Russert on Meet the Press..." (Bernstein, para 2)
"Nor did Mitt Romney ever previously claim that this took place, until long after his father passed away in 1995 - note even when defending accusations of the Mormon church's discriminatory past during his 1994 Senate Campaign." (Bernstein, para 3)
"George Romney would later lead a 10,000 person march through Detroit, but not with King. (Bernstein, para 18)
"(George) Romney, according to one piece of written source material provided by the campaign made a 'surprise' appearance at a small march. . . Grasse Pointe, Michigan, in late June, several days after King led a much larger march in Detroit. Romney spokesperson Erick Fehhrnstrom suggests that these two were part of the same 'series' of events, co-sponsored by King and the NAACP, and is thus consistent with (Mitt) Romney's claim that 'I saw my father march with Martin Luther King, Jr." (Bernstein, para 22)
"'I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.' But as David Bernstein reported, that wasn't quite right. There was no evidence of Romney's father, George, marching with Martin Luther King, Jr., at Grosse Pointe, Michigan, as the (Mitt Romney) campaign had claimed; for one, Martin Luther King had never been to Grosse Pointe. The campaign later clarified that George Romney and Martin Luther King had marched together in a metaphorical sense - they were in different cities, and the marches took place on different days - and that Mitt (who was no present for either event) had seen his father march in a metaphorical sense as well.) (Murphy, para 4)
Mitt lies, Mormons lie, Mormons taught might to lie.
Kill the Mormon White Horse Prophecy at the ballot box, don't let the Mormon Doctrine of Lying for the Lord install a Mormon President - sworn to obey the Mormon prophet, Supreme Leader of the Mormon Cult, Thomas Monson.
