Students at Catholic University protest Martin Luther King’s Pro-Life, Donald Trump-supporting niece from speaking at their college




University students have protests against Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whom the students accused of “promoting bigotry and hatred” because of her pro-life stance.

Students at Georgetown University have demanded that the Catholic university “publicly condemn” the pro-life speakers who participated in the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life last January and the pro-abortion activist group on campus “H*yas for Choice” issued a statement condemning Dr. King which reads:

“Speaker Alveda King is Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece. However, unlike her uncle who preached tolerance and justice, Alveda King promotes bigotry and hatred. She uses her platform to publicly promote extreme anti-LGBTQ ideologies: she has compared same-sex marriage to genocide, compared homosexuality to fatness, and written that same-sex marriage and abortions cause natural disasters. She is also an avowed Trump supporter, and has publicly and continuously countered allegations condemning Trump for being racist, tweeting “President Trump is not a racist!! He is one of the best presidents America has ever seen! I fully support him!” Furthermore, she has referred to abortions as “womb-lynchings,” stating that “lynching is not a sacred cow reserved for the lamentations of descendants of black slaves in America.” In addition, she has publicly voiced her opposition to the Black Lives Matter Organization, inaccurately claiming that it supports “genocide and mayhem.”

Dr King’s pro-life, pro-Trump and unapologetically Christian activism has provoked the ire of the left who now seek to silence her from speaking in the future.
