MARTIN LUTHER KING..

Martin Luther King 1a

 “I HAVE A DREAM”

Four things you didn’t know about Martin Luther King.

First, his name wasn’t Martin Luther. It was Michael. It was decided Martin Luther had a more prominent ring to it, so he went by that. He never legally changed his name. To this day, he lived and died as Michael King.

Second, while working on his dissertation for his doctoral degree at BostonUniversity, he heavily plagiarized from another author who had done research on a subject similar to Kings. As academic committee later found that over half of King’s work was plagiarize, yet would not revoke his doctrine. King was dead by this time, and the committee ruled that revoking the title once served no purpose. It was also discovered that King’s famous I have a dream speech was also not his own. He stole it from a sermon by Archibald Cary, a popular black preacher in 1950s.

Third, King was under FBI surveillance for several years (until he died) due to his ties with communist organizations throughout the country. King accepted money from the organizations to find his movements. In return, King had to appoint communist leaders to run certain districts of his SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference), who then could project their communist ideas to larger audiences. A federal judge in the 60s ruled that the FBI files on Kings links to communism to remain top secret until 2027. Sen. Jesse Helms appealed to the Supreme Court in 1983 to release the files, so the correct bill in the Senate to create the Martin Luther King federal holiday could be abolished. He was denied.

Fourth, one of King’s closest friends, Rev. Ralph Abernathy, wrote a book in 1989 in which he talks about King’s obsession with white prostitutes. King would often used church donations to have drunken sex parties, where he would hire 2 to 3 white prostitutes, occasionally beating them brutally. This has also been reported by the FBI agents who monitored King. King was married with four children.

Martin Luther King Day. A day when this country will come to a screeching halt so we can have parades and memorials to honor this man, a man that most of the world views as a saint for his role in the civil rights movement. No other public holiday in the United States, (currently) honors a single individual. Of all the great leaders in our nations history, none of them have their own holiday. All of our great war heroes share Memorial day. All of our great presidents share Presidents’ Day. Yet King, a man who was a phony, a cheater, a traitor, and a sexual degenerate, gets a day of his own. (Source, Snopes.com).
