Let’s “honor” MLK by telling the truth about him on his day. He’s the only American with his own federal holiday, as I’m sure you’re aware.
This link will take you to Amren’s annual MLK plagiarist article.
The excerpt below from UNZ covers his Communist ties and other unsavory facts about the biggest con artist in American history. There are a large number of live links at UNZ.

On November 4, 2017, a secret FBI dossier on King, dated March 12, 1968, surfaced during the release of archival documents relating to the Kennedy assassination. [Read it: PDF] Sensitive information about King, under seal for decades by the FBI, suddenly turned up on Internet sites. Several news organizations publicized the revelations, including CBS News, CNN, the New York Times, The Washington Post, the Drudge Report, and other outlets. The Daily Mail posted a lengthy account titled , “FBI Report in New JFK Release Claims Martin Luther King Jr. had ‘All-Night Sex Orgy’ at Workshop for Church Ministers.”
The 20-page classified document confirmed what some historians and biographers have gingerly tiptoed around. It revealed the extent to which the FBI monitored King’s activities, using informants and wiretaps under the authority of Attorney General Robert Kennedy. It listed by name several of King’s close associates who had Communist ties. And it contained details of MLK’s sexual jaunts.
Known Communists who were close associates of MLK included Stanley Levison, once a top financial supporter of the Communist Party, USA (CPUSA), Hunter Pitts “Jack” O’Dell, a former National Committee member of the CPUSA, and Bayard Rustin, a former advisor to King, who was arrested in 1946 “for offering to commit a lewd or indecent act” and who maintained close ties to several Communist party members. Individuals involved with King’s organization who had Communist “affiliations” included Levison, Clarence Jones, Harry Wachtel, Cordy T. Vivian, Randolph Blackwell, O’Dell, Lawrence Reddick, and Rustin.
The FBI “analysis” provides an overview of King’s activities during the mid-1960s: details on funding sources for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), King’s anti-war activities, and an attempt by “fringe” political activists who encouraged King to run for president.
The last two pages contain salacious information about King’s sexual escapades, including an all-night orgy with prostitutes during a workshop with ministers (with funding by the Ford Foundation) in Miami, Florida. It mentions an illicit affair with folk singer Joan Baez, and that King financially supported a mistress and out-of-wedlock child in the Los Angeles area.
But the Washington Post covered the FBI document under this Orwellian headline: “In the Latest JFK Files, the FBI’s Ugly Analysis on Martin Luther King, Jr., filled with falsehoods; The Newly Released FBI Document About Martin Luther King, Jr., Reveals More About Former Director J. Edgar Hoover’s Campaign to Discredit King, Historian Says.” November 4, 2017
Keep in mind this is the same MLK that the Virginia Symphony Orchestra will pay homage to during a free concert on January 14 in Norfolk. “It’s more important now than ever to celebrate him,” said VSO music director JoAnn Falletta. Why should all-night booze-driven orgies among King, clergy members, and prostitutes interfere with this orchestral celebration? Where’s the “Me Too” movement when you need them? (Of course, some prominent music directors, such as James Levine and Charles Dutoit, are coming under intense scrutiny for “sexual misconduct.”)
Comment #6 at Unz explains how King became a national icon.
King died at a very convenient time. He was starting to branch out into other areas, notably Vietnam. Now he can be molded into the shape the government prefers him to be and to influence the black population. He admired Gandhi, advocated non-violence, work within the system, don’t riot and burn down the neighborhood, etc. The communist linkage and the pervy sex stuff as well as the plagiarism and misuse of funds have to all be scrubbed out. Much of this is not known because people don’t want to know. Right now he’s a packaged product that the government and others down the line, such as the educational system, use to guide the black population as well as others.
Actually, it probably isn’t a good thing that King ws martyred. Eventually his “issues” would have caught up with him and we might not have this damnable holiday every year.
You might find this post on the Negress who tried to stab MLK to death in 1958 to be an interesting piece of suppressed history.
A final update: My health is improving. However, the high on Tuesday is supposed to remain below freezing.
