MARTIN LUTHER KING--THE MAN BEHIND THE MEDIA MASK
Every year America endures the same propaganda media-blitz around Martin Luther King Day--the false portrayal of the “Reverend” King as an American hero: a saintly, self-sacrificing religious martyr for the cause of civil rights. He was everything but that and certainly no hero that any American should look up to. I have written extensively about the defense of true civil rights; no one can accuse me of hating the cause. I say this by way of introduction in anticipation of the fury my remarks will generate among the media which continues to perpetrate this dangerous myth upon American culture. Everything about Martin Luther King is a fraud. Here are the real facts about this man and his character.
1) NAME CHANGE: The man we know as Martin Luther King, Jr. was actually named Michael King, Jr. His father was a minister and arbitrarily decided to rename himself and his son after the Protestant reformer Martin Luther.
2) PLAGIARISM IN HIS DOCTORAL THESIS: King was a chronic plagiarizer all throughout his academic career. Gerry Harbison, a chemistry professor at the University of Nebraska, who has done the most complete analysis of King’s extensive plagiarism, has this to say: “In 1988, the Martin Luther King Jr. Papers Project made a discovery that shocked it to its core. The Project, a group of academics and students, had been entrusted by Coretta Scott King with the task of editing King's papers for publication. As they examined King's student essays and his dissertation, they gradually became aware that King was guilty of massive plagiarism -- that is, he had copied the works of other authors word-for-word, without making it clear that what he was writing was not his own. The Project spent years uncovering the full extent of King's plagiarism. In November 1990, word leaked to the press, and they had to go public. The revelations caused a minor scandal and then were promptly forgotten.” Suppressed would be a more accurate description. The National Endowment for the Humanities actively suppressed the story in preparation for Martin Luther King Day. Its director at the time was Lynne Cheney, wife of the current Vice President. For the full story see Prof. Harbison’s website: http://chem-gharbison.unl.edu/mlk/plagiarism.html
3) COMMUNIST BACKGROUND AND CONTACTS: It appears that King established an early liaison with the American Communist Party and sought to create civil unrest in support of the revolution. His own biographer, David J. Garrow, admitted that King once privately “described himself as a Marxist.” King constantly surrounded himself with Communists, hiring many, and going to great lengths to keep them on his payroll through secret relationships. King’s personal secretary in the 1950s was communist and homosexual Bayard Rustin. According to Sen. Jesse Helms, “King was repeatedly warned about his associations with known Communists by friendly elements in the Kennedy Administration and the Department of Justice (including strong and explicit warning from President Kennedy himself). King took perfunctory and deceptive measures to separate himself from the Communists [such as Stanley David Levison and Hunter Pitts O’Dell] against whom he was warned. He continued to have close and secret contacts with at least some of them after being informed and warned of their background, and he violated a commitment to sever his relationships with identified Communists.”
4) IMMORAL AND ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR: Dr. King had an ample reputation as a philanderer and abuser of women of ill repute. The FBI under J. Edgar Hoover, with personal authorization by then Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, had run surveillance on King and his entourage for years attempting to gather data on his Communist connections. While the Bureau did surveil King’s attendance at Communist meetings, most of the surveillance records show an extreme preoccupation after hours with illicit sex. In deference to King’s usefulness in promoting a national holiday for civil rights, US Federal judge John Lewis Smith, Jr. ordered all the FBI records sealed up in the National Archives for 50 years (till 2027). When I was Executive Editor of Conservative Digest, I called retired Acting FBI Director L. Patrick Gray and asked him what was in the evidence locked away. His answer surprised me. He said there were approximately 15 file cabinets of evidence on King: 14 of them were full of recordings and transcripts of his illicit relationships with prostitutes. Only one file cabinet contained evidence of his Communist relationships.
Even former co-workers have blown the whistle on King’s scurrilous conduct. The Rev. Ralph Abernathy, in his book, And the Walls Came Tumbling Down, asserts that King spent his last night in the motel having an immoral liaison with three women; he beat one of the woman in the morning before he was shot. Assistant Director of the FBI Charles D. Brennan wrote a letter to Sen. John P. East (R-NC) in which he stated that King's conduct consisted of “orgiastic and adulterous escapades, some of which indicated that King could be bestial in his sexual abuse of women.” The FBI surveillance records covering his first night in Stockholm, Sweden, where he was to receive the Noble Peace Prize, document that his only interest was in how to secure prostitutes for himself and his entourage. An orgy followed. Yes, I am aware that other national heroes have had their weaknesses, but King’s conduct demonstrates a Clinton-like sexual addiction. If these allegations are true, this man should never have been put forward as a national hero.

A man who did so much, could not have done it himself no matter how much power he had. It had to be a man of God who feared the Lord.
Dont believe everything you hear or read!

Martin Luther King Day?
By David Ben-Ariel
If we're to be judged by the content of our character rather than the color of our skin, why continue to demand quotas and curves and tolerate such racist organizations as the NAACP?
