Happy James Earl Ray Day!

It’s Martin Luther King day here in America.

The wikipedia version – the version of MLK you were presented with in highschool – only gives you a glimpse into his life. The FBI Wiretapping issue mentions that King had close associations with communism and that he was wiretapped. The actual reality was that the KKK was founded by Democrats and it’s very likely that the everyone-is-equal talk of communism appealed to King. What’s not mentioned is that the FBI found while wiretapping king, which is something which can’t be overlooked. The FBI program was called COINTELPRO and it was interested in communists. It was eventually declared illegal. The COIN program on MLK Jr, however, was legal and for the most part gathered it’s information via wiretapping.

What did the FBI uncover?

MLK partied with women who weren’t his wife. He smoked. He drank. He used just as many slurs as the next guy. One of the women he was sleeping with he beat into a coma. Don’t believe me? Pick up the JAN 19-1998 issue of Newsweek.

    • Nope, I approved it so your blog would be forever tarnished by being linked to mine. Who would expect you to really be sincere in a posting where you accuse news media of covering up stories? The only reason why King wasn’t arrested is because the warrant was for materials related to communist political activities. Would you have supported arresting him on incidental discoveries unrelated to the warrant? Hows that for civil liberties? The irony being that he was fighting for civil liberty while at the same time conducting himself in a morally reprehensible manner. A violation of civil liberty would have been to arrest him on charges of battery with discoveries made outside the scope of the legal process.

      Turn your brain on or shut up about news media bias. Ask yourself why Wikipedia’s version of the MLK history doesn’t mention COINTELPRO but the COILTELPRO page mentions MLK.
