Governor Newsom Issues Proclamation Declaring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Sacramento, CA... Governor Gavin Newsom today issued a proclamation declaring January 15, 2021, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in the State of California.



Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. taught us that we are ultimately measured not by where we stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but by the stands we take during times of challenge and controversy. The events of the past year have presented our state with no shortage of challenges, among them the ongoing struggle against systemic injustice in all its forms.

More than 50 years after his passing, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s ideals are more salient than ever. His legacy reminds us that moral leadership does not require a person to be in elected office or hold a position of power. Instead, exercising moral authority requires the will to do the right thing. Standing on the shoulders of civil rights leaders before him and working in concert with a generation of activists, Dr. King helped transform how our country saw itself and its future.

Dr. King provided a framework for how each of us can shape the future: Call out injustice and work toward something better. His legacy and clarion call to us all lives on in all those fighting for justice amid the many threats to it today. The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the inequities and deep disparities in our society, with people of color disproportionately affected by its devastating health and economic impacts. Furthermore, the Black Lives Matter protests of this summer shined a light on the continuing racial injustice that we can, and must, do more to address.

Let us gather strength from Dr. King’s legacy and use our moral authority to push for a more equitable state, society and world.

NOW THEREFORE I, GAVIN NEWSOM, Governor of the State of California, do hereby proclaim January 15, 2021, as “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.”

IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of California to be affixed this 15th day of January 2021.

Funny that the lefties on this site are all freaked out about conservatives with guns. I am sure they will come up with some way to brush off Antifa member Daniel Alan Baker, who has been arrested by the FBI for plotting to murder Trump supporters and police on Inauguration Day. So peaceful...

Listen close VP-Elect Skank, and maybe you can plagiarize more from the King family like you did earlier. Maybe if you can keep your legs from spreading you can cum up with something on your own for a change. You and China Joe are getting famous for plagiarism.

"A migrant caravan moving from Honduras toward the U.S. border is calling on the incoming Biden administration to honor what it says are "commitments" to the migrants moving north, amid fears of a surge at the border when President-elect Joe Biden enters office.

More than 1,000 Honduran migrants moved into Guatemala on Friday without registering, The Associated Press reported. That is part of a larger caravan that left a Honduran city earlier in the day."
Yeah FOR OPENING THE BORDER!!! Sex Slaves, domestic female workers I won't have to pay, just feed'em and lock'em up for the night....well after dessert 😉

" Twitter and Facebook (the companies have lost a combined $51 billion in market value after banning Trump) are early warnings that arrogant companies that think they can bully the American people may be running big financial risks."
Just wait awhile and see the stock market drop like Kamala Harris's panties, in less then 6 months after January 20th

For the past twelve months we have been screen scraping all of the most idiotic and racist comments we could find on PT. Thank you for helping us prove that rural America is dying and that day by day it proves our argument that we need to cut off all of funding for Trumpland.

John likes to refer to Calaveras as the place for the 1%. We think it is more like 5% of America which is a worthless, uneducated horde of losers who can't make it in the rest of the U.S. -- like SF, LA, NYC. -- where real money is made (and happen to vote liberal. (What a coincidence!)

        So, first of all I have seen many times Harris and Brown together as couple in San Francisco. Secondly, the King family does not support or recognize black lives matter! Thirdly, Newsome is off the rails to suggest that COV 19 has targeted the black community or any other community. If there is a higher rate it is because they are not a healthy community! That they have a higher rate of unhealthy pre conditions. Newsom is guilty of promoting division of the citizenship!

                So BLM is a terrorist organization?
                How many died, from the BLM protests?
                How many died from the White Supremacist anti Semitic insurrection in Washington Jan 6th?

                If you're Honest you will say 6 died in Washington Jan 6th.
                If you're brainwashed, you will deny the truth.

                Also you will ignore that dump was taken to his bunker when BLM had a peaceful protest in Washington this Summer.
                You also will ignore dump did not go to his bunker on Jan 6th. Why?

                It is clear the insurrection coup attempted by the dump humpers was planned inside the government.

                The dump incited insurrection evidence shows it was an inside coup attempt, with many government agencies helping the Insurrectionists.

                Antifa, BLM was not there in any numbers on Jan 6th , the FBI states this.

                So we are left to see the Republican propaganda machine and how many are brain washed. They tried to capture and kill Pense, Pelosi, and other elected officials

                So you support the coup attempt? Or, do you support our Constitution and laws?

                The My Pillow guy now offers discounts on his merchandise using the discount code Qanon. He visited with dump yesterday in the WH.

                How F'n sick is that?

                Perfectly normal some will say. How sick you are then?

                  The dotards from January 6th will be rounded up, prosecuted, and punished. Depending on the criminal act, some of those dotards will lose their jobs and face jail time.
                  That should change the 73 percentile that some that post on tpt like to throw around. Unless they don't like the facts and keep their 73% for convenience sake.

                                    Hey tough guy, you never showed up at WP.
