HOW A MARXIST CAME TO BE AN AMERICAN HERO
Get ready for the inevitable, interminable "I Have A Dream" video montages, the endless droning of the media about the Reverend Martin Luther King's martyrdom for America's downtrodden . Get ready for the annual con job that's been foisted on the populace for 21 years. For if we judge Martin Luther King Jr. on "the content of his character" and "not the color of his skin", surely no banks or schools or post offices would be shut down for a day. Is this the best Black man America has to offer up to honor?
Consider that while the bleating flocks follow blindly in their homage, few have the guts to state the truth. The man was anything but honorable. Michael King was born in 1929 in Atlanta. His father, a Baptist preacher changed both his and his son's names to Martin Luther. Soon after getting used to his new name, Martin Jr. realized he had a flair for dramatic oratory. And soon after that, he realized he had a flair for seducing women. A King biography notes the young man "would scout the schools… to find the best looking … girls." 
In fact, King is quoted as saying "we wreck girls…we wreck up all the women". (The content of his character?) After graduation from college, King received a degree from a theological Seminary, then a Ph.D. from Boston University. Forty years later it become widely know that King plagiarized much of his doctoral thesis .(The content of his character?)
Was this attention-getting speaker the committed Christian he professed to be? Doesn't appear so. Little can be found of King's allegiance to the REAL King, anywhere. In fact , Martin Luther King Jr. said the Bible was filled with "legends and myths". It also has been noted he denied that Christ was physically raised from the dead.  Was the seminary student, in fact, on fire for Christianity? Not according to Reader's Digest, September, 1967, where Carl Rowan wrote "the thinking of Gandhi and Thoreau was … burning inside King".
A few mental pictures you might want to superimpose over the "I Have A Dream" images you'll be seeing ad nauseum in the coming days might include a naked Dr. King running down the hallway of a Norwegian hotel chasing a woman during his trip to accept the Nobel Prize.
"(D)runkenness and sex orgies" occured during civil rights marches from Selma to Montgomery, according to Congressman William Dickinson, R, Alabama. In a story in the Atlanta Journal, dated March 31, 1965, Rep. Dickinson is quoted as saying "all night sessions of debauchery" took place in a CHURCH! ( the content of his character?)
King's well-documented ties with the Communist Party of the United States started with his involvement with the Southern Christian Leadership Congress. The SCLC was founded by two Jewish New Yorkers. One, lawyer Stanley Levison , was tagged as a member of the Executive Committee of the Communist Party, USA. The other founder was Bayard Rustin, well known as a homosexual and a Communist. The SCLC had no Christian underpinnings; it existed purely as a political front and King was the front's front man. After a long probe, the Joint Legislative Committee on Un-American Activities for the State of Louisiana determined that both the SCLC and Dr. King were "substantially under the control of the Communist Party".
After years of racial agitation inflamed by the media, Congress passed the Civil Rights Act in 1964. After that came the "War on Poverty" and it's results can be seen today. The country is heavily in debt as a result of welfare programs and more and more people(Blacks and Whites) believe the state has the obligation to provide for their every need. Mission accomplished! The more people depend on the nanny state, the more control government wields. To date, no prominent Black leader has dared to point out "the plight of the Negro" is worse than ever because of this. They're still slaves, they just have a different master.
The Communist influence in the civil rights movement was noted by FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover who said " The Communist Party strives to exploit what are often legitimate…complaints and grievances for the advancement of Communist objectives".
Martin Luther King Jr. was a dupe. He was used to advance an agenda back then and now after his death ( elevated to martyrdom, it seems) he is STILL being used.
FBI surveillance of King and the SCLC has yielded scores of file cabinets full of damning material. According to one source, there are over 60,000 censored pages. While a small amount of this material has been released under the Freedom of Information Act, the rest has been labeled "Obscene". (Lest you think the surveillance was obtained by "conservatives" with designs on ruining King, know that the FBI wiretaps were approved by then Attorney General Robert Kennedy.)
If King's life was suspect, so was his death. King's own son has expressed the belief that his father was killed in a "massive conspiracy" by those who saw the elder King's behavior, long-term depression and alcohol abuse to be a liability they couldn't afford.
You're going to have to wait until the year 2027 to find out what investigators discovered about King's secret life and his bloody death. So, on this, the 75th anniversary of the birth of the "civil rights leader" keep in mind-
You've been had.
