Letter to the editor: What's that you say, Mr. Robinson? Brunswick Beacon

January 15 was Martin Luther King (MLK) Day, a good time to consider how far we’ve come in realizing his dream that people “not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.” Judging by the hateful message of Mark Robinson, the leading Republican candidate for governor, we have a long way to go.

In a Facebook post on MLK Day 2017, Robinson called MLK a “communist.” In another post on MLK Day 2018, Robinson called MLK “an ersatz pastor” and his followers “atheists.” In a May 10, 2017 post, Robinson called MLK’s Civil Rights Movement “crap.” 

In a May 3, 2017 Facebook post, Robinson, an African-American, slandered and disowned that community: "Why would I want to be part of a "community" that devalues its fathers, overburdens its mothers, and murders its children by the millions? Why would I want to be part of a "community" that sucks from the putrid tit of the government and then complains about getting sour milk?”

Robinson spreads antisemitic conspiracy theories. He claims the movie Black Panther was "created by an agnostic Jew and put to film by satanic Marxists" and was "only created to pull the shekels out of your Schvartze pockets" (using a Yiddish slur for "black people"). Robinson appeared with pastor Sean Moon, who expects to become “King of the United States.” Moon called the Jewish Rothschild family “international bankers that rule every single national or federal reserve-type style of central bank in every single country.” Robinson replied, “That’s exactly right.” 

Robinson called homosexuality a “filthy abomination,” said Michelle Obama emanates “the stench of human waste” and called it “sad” that Muslims have religious freedom and are “free to do as they please.”

Echoing Matthew 5:44 from the Sermon on the Mount, MLK said: "Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." NC should reject Robinson and his toxic message of hate.
