If the Tabloids Had Been around in His Day, ‘Dr’ Martin Luther King Would Be in Big Trouble

Damian Thompson, Telegraph (London), August 28, 2013

Martin Luther King was a hero but he was certainly no saint. If he’d had to face aggressive tabloids and gossip websites, his career would have been destroyed – as, of course, would John F Kennedy’s.

Let’s begin with the real career-killer: he plagiarised his doctoral thesis from Boston University. This very useful post on snopes.com about the Martin Luther King scandals does a good job of separating myth from reality, and the plagiarism is proven. The following is from The New York Times in 1991:

A committee of scholars appointed by Boston University concluded today that the Rev Martin Luther King Jr plagiarized passages in his dissertation for a doctoral degree at the university 36 years ago.

“There is no question,” the committee said in a report to the university’s provost, “but that Dr King plagiarized in the dissertation by appropriating material from sources not explicitly credited in notes, or mistakenly credited, or credited generally and at some distance in the text from a close paraphrase or verbatim quotation.”

Despite its finding, the committee said that “no thought should be given to the revocation of Dr King’s doctoral degree,” an action that the panel said would serve no purpose.

But the committee did recommend that a letter stating its finding be placed with the official copy of Dr King’s dissertation in the university’s library.

You may not be surprised to learn that the story of King’s plagiarism was around for a long time before the American press deigned to touch it – but when his old university found him retrospectively guilty the story could hardly be ignored. Needless to say, BU didn’t take away his doctorate, as it would have in almost any other similar case.

Then there’s King’s womanising, not quite as pathological as JFK’s but still – even according to some of his friends – pretty vigorous. Civil rights activist Ralph Abernathy, who was with him when he was murdered, was explicit on the subject in his autobiography. As People magazine reported in 1989:

Abernathy’s damning charge is that King spent the last night of his life enjoying two successive extramarital liaisons, followed by a knockdown motel-room fight with a third woman.

Abernathy caused huge offence with his claim – but he replied by saying that he was keen to dispel myths about King. Yes, he had a voracious sexual appetite; but no, he did not have a taste for white prostitutes, as his enemies alleged. Those enemies included Jackie Kennedy, as the Daily Mail reported in 2011:

Jackie Kennedy hated Martin Luther King so much she could barely look at photographs of him.

In interviews taped in 1964 but only just released, she said the black civil rights leader was a “terrible man” and a “phoney”.

She claimed King bragged of being drunk at her husband John F Kennedy’s funeral and had been caught trying to set up an orgy.

Mrs Kennedy said her view of King was formed after being told [by Robert Kennedy] of secret FBI wiretaps which showed him trying to organise a sex party before he attended the March on Washington in August 1963, at which he delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech.

As I say, Martin Luther King was a hero. We shouldn’t remember him for cheating on his doctorate and his wife. But it’s worth noting: if he’d been a famous white Republican, his reputation would have been comprehensively trashed by historians and the media.

    King doesn’t have anything to worry about. The left has completely rewritten the history books about what he did. He was a communist, womanizer and plagiarizer yet to the left he should be made a saint. It makes me want to barf.

  • Puggg

    There were probably plenty of “tabloids” operating in the 1950s and 1960s, and all these things we know now were probably open secrets back then I bet. But nobody cared about them because the state religion was and still is racial equality.

    Notice that in Damian Thompson, the author of this article, someone who is willing to tell the truth about him still thinks he’s a hero.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      True. The Telegraph writer’s eyes are still mostly closed. He ignores or is unaware of the vast racial coverup conspiracy in the media.

      On the other hand, if the Internet/WWW had indeed been around in King’s time, he may very well never have become the saint that he is now.

      • Puggg

        The internet is around now, and yet he’s still a Saint. Actually I should walk that back on all four paws: He’s only a saint in the eyes of the people that worship him. I get the feeling that most white people in this country both then and now consider(ed) him to be exactly what he was, just another hustling troublemaking stuff-disturbing loudmouth black preacher.

        The scant few times white people actually get to vote on Martin Luther King themed things, MLK usually loses.

        • BonusGift

          Years later I can remember that even my own father didn’t trash the Marxist degenerate because (and note that this was his mindset not mine) because he noticed that “African Americans” worshipped him (i.e., he didn’t want to take away what little they had to worship). Knee-grows are the most ‘racist’ group on the planet and seem largely incapable of jettisoning a bad seed (maybe because most/all are bad seeds); for example, almost any ‘black leader’ comes to mind (Marion Barry, Barry Soetoro, etc. etcetera). It is whites that would have heightened cognitive dissonance if the media reported more truthfully (and not just regarding Michael King), which is why the truth must be suppressed at all costs and even in the face of blatant lies and hypocrisy. That is, YT can: (1) never learn the truth, and (2) never be reminded of it.

    • Strider73

      Imagine if the National Enquirer or any other American tabloid had published the truth about MLK back then. His worshipers (black and white) would have instantly rioted and burned the place to the ground. Then they would have raided every store and newsstand, stolen every copy and burned them as well.

      As for JFK’s screwing around, the White House press corps knew all about it but kept it under wraps. He was their hero, after all. The Secret Service and FBI also kept quiet despite their very real fears that many of his bed partners were Soviet spies.

      • QuinnTheEskimo9

        There was a different decorum in the press at that time. They had info on Kennedy, Ike, LBJ and other American presidents that they sat on, just like they hide info about Obama now. Google Larry Sinclair and Donald Young. The Internet has broken the media’s monopoly on current events, news, etc. We can now get both sides whereas before we could not.
        Now it’s anything goes as media outlets try to out-scoop each other.
        And, as Rush Limbaugh himself has said: Do not discount the National Enquirer. They sure nailed him.

      • David Ashton

        JFK bedmates reportedly included Suzy Chang and Mariella Novotny from the Ward honey-trap in Britain. Were any of “Dr” King’s partners communists too? Does anyone here know?

        • me

          Well, if you call masturbating yourself a ‘partner’, then yes–MLK jr was having sex with a communist.

          • BonusGift

            I also find it odd that many apologists and pet keepers for knee-grows are so desperate to find a ‘magic negro’ that they have elevated such things such as mimicking (e.g., acting; and singing which is a version of that) to be worthy of elevated status in white society when other animals can mimic (I mean other animals besides beside blacks).

  • bigone4u

    Why do we always have to go to the British press to get this kind of honesty? Did MSNBC bring any of MLK’s perversions and dishonesty up today? NY Times? CNN? No, because they are “in bed” (pun intended) with the saintly ghost of St. MLK. And that’s part of why they have no credibility any more.

      Because the US ‘press’ is a propaganda machine, overwhelmingly owned and operated by the uber-liberal, ‘old guard’ non-goys. This is changing, too. The younger non-goys are starting to reject the nonsense of Bantu worship.

  • Voice of Reason

    From Yahoo Answers:

    Why are MLK records sealed until 2027?

    Why are MLK’s records sealed
    until 2027. Their argument is that the public can not fairly evaluate
    King’s character and beliefs to develop an informed decision regarding
    MLK day, MLK monument, etc. If he was everything he is claimed to be,
    then why are the records hidden? To you really think that anything
    negative will be released in 2027 or will the govt pull all the
    negative?

    Best Answer

    One of King’s closest friends, Rev. Ralph Abernathy, wrote a book in
    1989 in which he talked about King’s obsession with white prostitutes.
    King would often use church donations to have drunken sex parties, where
    he would hire two to three white prostitutes, occasionally beating them
    brutally. This has also been reported by the FBI agents who monitored
    King

      Just another African American invention, I wonder if peanut butter was on the menu?

      • me

        MLK smeared peanut butter on the white prostitutes as he beat them, singing ‘I shall overcome, someday’….

        • Whitetrashgang

          You know blacks are so childish and stupid next time you walk home with a jar of peanut butter they will think you are stealing from them and rob you . Then take it home and use it for jerry curl and to help get their freak on.

          • OlderWoman

            I learned from a black woman that they avoid men who have jheri curls as the men are probably new releases from prison.

    • OlderWoman

      Abernathy, like Jackson, wanted to be the Snivel Rights icon in place of Michael King.

  • Tinfoil A22hat

    It makes complete sense — the best they can do is about the worst we can do.

    Blacks need high praise just for mimicking things we have already done. Get back to me when you pioneer something, and no, jenkem doesn’t count.

    • Nick A Siggers

      Come on, they invented peanut butter…. but then I guess anyone who ever chewed a handful of peanuts did too.

  • Glickstein44

    As I say, Martin Luther King was a hero.

    Damian,you are as twisted as MLK.

  • LudwigvonDrake

    If the US press were to tell the truth about MLK, they know that we could then judge him by the standard that he promoted, i.e. by the content of his character rather than by the color of his skin. In so doing we would recognize him for the hypocrite that he was. And that just wouldn’t do, now would it?

  • Eagle_Eyed

    If a man cannot be trusted to uphold his most serious commitment to his wife, he cannot be trusted in the political or moral arena. King clearly had a dream–unbridled power–which he could use to further his sensual appetite.

    • shmo123

      It would be bad enough if all King did was use prostitutes to satisfy his carnal appetites, and cheat on his wife every chance he got; had it come to light while he lived, King’s traveling show might have come to a screeching halt. But the two-bit hypocrite spent his entire life preaching and holding up a mirror to the moral misgivings of white America while he ran riot behind closed doors and did it while posing behind the title of “Reverend”, and for that I’ll never, ever, have any respect for him.

      And how many Steins and Bergs fail to realize that Michael King and those like him hate their guts?

      A White “anti-semite” may possibly deny the Steins and Bergs access to a country club. Big deal.

      Black anti-semites, and most of them are anti-semites, will rob, rape and murder them.

    The author says “As I say, Martin Luther King was a hero.”

    The only difference between St. MLK and Jesse Jackson, or the Rev. Sharp tongue is 50
    years in time. Does anyone have a doubt that if St. MLK were alive today, he
    would be engaged in the same race hustling and diversity shakedown frauds as
    his contemporaries? History has proven that black “activists’ are all the same. It’s what they do.

      Yup, me too friend. From what I understand he was quite the pervert. Even being caught on one of those tapes asking to perform,,, Ehhmmmm,, fellatio,, on another “man of the cloth” while engaged in other acts of a deviant nature with a woman.

      You know,,, sometimes I think that the sin forgiving gift of assassination is probably the best thing that could’ve ever happened to Martin Loofer King. Otherwise he would be remembered as little more than an earlier version of a Jesse Jackson or an Al Sharpton. In fact, as far as legacy goes, I think he owes James Earl Ray one hell of a thank you.

          You know, they say that the book is dedicated to the memory of Medgar Evers rectum, but I think that might just be a rumor.

    The anti White MSM, Liberal elite loves fake Christians who push cultural Marxism, the elite always tries to find some fake Southerner, fake military hero like McCain, Colin Powell.

    In Chicago we have white hating, Liberation theology Catholic priest Father Pfleger, Jeremiah Wright seems to be out of favor.

    • I saw that Pfleger-Idiot called for a moratorium on violence in Chicago today to coincide with the holy sacred anniversary of The Messiah (v 1.0) speaking from the Temple Mount.

      If moratoria on violence worked, why not call for a moratorium that lasts more than one day? How about infinity days? Furthermore, could Pfleger be prosecuted as an accessory to all the crime in Chicago that happened before now because he didn’t call for a moratorium?

      Phooey on all that. It’s just PR on his part, lousy PR at that.

    • OlderWoman

      The Catholic church certainly has it share of racist and pervert priests.

  • IKantunderstand

    How much you wanna make a bet, that King’s indiscretions will be given a pass forever? The whole point to the present day historians is to tear down all the White historical figures. Denigrate, demonize, and make them the enemies of the world. When you feel the need to come up with a Negro, who has done ANYTHING, anything at all, the pickins are very, very, slim. Thus, the lionization of King. Look, he did what he believed in, but, he was a very flawed human being, as so many other figures of history have been. The difference, NONE of those facts about King are mentioned in his history. Once again, Whites, trying to be accommodating and inclusive, have allowed themselves to be complicit in the canonization of King. And, frankly, he took a page out of Ghandi’s book, and, apparently, other peoples sermons as well. I am appalled, that there is no national holiday for George Washington. The first president of our country, and the man who defeated the British. Seriously? George Washington has no national holiday, but that fraud, Michael King does? Oh, and, by the way, as a proud German, I am offended that Mr. King, chose to name himself after the German priest of the Protestant Reformation. I mean, I understand the symbolism. What’s the problem? Why didn’t he use a similar figure of bravery from African religion/folklore/mythology?

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      If I understand correctly, his father took the name of ML first.

    • BonusGift

      I agree with you; also, there was once a specific federal holiday for Washington’s birthday (I believe it was the first for any U.S. citizen), then the cultural Marxists & related fellow travers collapsed it with Lincoln’s into “Presidents’ Day”. In fact, there have been so many cultural Marxist Trojan horses (e.g., swapping Washington’s Birthday for saint MLK day) on the road to our genocide that it is with melancholy that I remember when we actually had it (truth be told I was never a big fan of saint Lincoln and his birthday).

      • jane johnson

        Right you are. My late mother’s birthday fell on Feb. 22 (same as G.W.), which was how I remembered it. Presidents Day also served the purpose of creating another 3-day weekend. No fan of Lincoln, either. Most of his “myth” is a lie; just like MLK’s.

    I’m sure everyone has seen the photo of Jesse Jackson, Ralph Abernathy and Martin Loofer King standing on the balcony just before being shot. And the one where everyone was pointing towards where the shots came from. But did you guys know that there are quite a few others that actually show king close up on the balcony after being shot? Like I said I hope this isn’t too morbid but I have a set of those photos. And if anyone wants to see them I’ll try to get them to you through E-mail or post them some where other than here, or something.

  • William Krapek

    You know it’s funny. But Albert Einstein’s 1905 paper on special relativity would probably also be flagged for plagiarism if it were likewise publicly vetted. ESPECIALLY the part where he vaguely alludes to people for ideas without giving them due credit. Beyond that, he didn’t come up with E=MC(squared), and it took two years to get it drilled into his thick skull that we live in a 4-dimensional time-space universe.

    And believe me, the people who DID understand that tried. Foremost would be Hermann Minkowski. But I suspect Minkowski’s crime – and Einstein’s gain – was his… shall we say… pedigree. Or lack thereof. (You’d think it from his name but, alas, no.

    So why do we gush over these men? Obviously so White people can feel stupid and guilty. The only way to keep them down. On the two different occasions where outside forces were brought in to murder them en masse – Islam and Communism – they successfully resisted and eventually turned the tables.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      Good call. The media will never vet Einstein. The government will release MLK’s secret files before Einstein’s plagiarism is brought to light, which it should be:

      “The name ‘Einstein’ evokes images of genius, but was Albert Einstein, in fact, a plagiarist, who copied the theories of Lorentz, Poincare, Gerber, and Hilbert? A scholarly documentation of Albert Einstein’s plagiarism of the theory of relativity, ‘Albert Einstein: The Incorrigible Plagiarist’ discloses Einstein’s method for manipulating credit for the work of his contemporaries, reprints the prior works he parroted, and demonstrates through formal logical argument that Albert Einstein could not have drawn the conclusions he drew without prior knowledge of the works he copied, but failed to reference. Numerous republished quotations from Einstein’s contemporaries prove that they were aware of his plagiarism.”

      “The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”

  • How can Martin Luther King Jr (Michael King Jr) be a hero if he was such a deviate. heroism starts with moral character, not deviate character. Martin Luther King Jr. (Michael King Jr) was far from being a hero. He was a lying sack of dog crap that should have been killed before he even started his march toward freedom. In fact, there never was a march toward freedom.

    The FBI wiretaps and other intelligence information on MLK had originally been sealed for 50 years. As the anniversary drew near and the information to be released, it was decided to shelve the data for another 75 years this time. It is well known among certain of those in the FBI during the last 40 years that the information in the intelligence data was so damning that it must remain hidden or the only black hero would collapse. This is what we can expect from our government, lies, lies and damn lies.

  • Bardon Kaldian

    Let’s say something differing from the general tenor: MLK was a cunning politician. His moral personality is loathsome, but one must admit- he wasn’t just “lucky”. His tactical manoeuvres had been very well designed & executed. For a white man, he would be considered a clever politician; for a black- he was a genius.

    • joesphx

      Nope, you have just ignored his handlers and they were legion.

      A genius? Not hardly…he was just another trousered ape who learned to mimic White civility…

      As the poster joesph states…it was his “handlers” who had planned his “tactical maneuvers” and more than likely designed & executed his asassination…he was most definitely becoming a liability for them, a out of control ape who is said to have beaten severely a White prostitute and sodomizing another while yelling to the heavens,”Tonight i am not a N word but a White man!!” on the last night of his life.If MLK had lived long enough we would probable have witnessed another name change to that of Mohammed, the name that cassius clay took when he refused to be drafted…i believe it was his side-kick Ralph Abernathy that wrote in his book “As the Walls Came Tumbling Down,that MLK had once said to him,”Come over here so i can **** ur big black ****. A genius? Someone who would choose the path to eternal damnation like MLK did is no genius but more properly be called a Fool.

          mlk was as much a genius as rosa parks…you really think mlk succeeded at anything? Are blacks better off today now then they were then? More illegitimacy,a wider education gap between blacks and Whites,more crime ridden,rapes,robbery and murder…yeh,thats the legacy mlk left if you subscribe to the notion that it was all the result of his genius.Look,we wouldn’t even of heard of mlk if the group that is in control of the media didn’t publicize him and show and edit his speech’s and the marches all in a favorable light..i suggest you read amren’s article on the Montgomery to Selma march.

    • Defoe

      Some of that “genius” credit you attribute to MLK must, in fact, go to his “handlers, marxists all.

  • Yale2001

    If he were white, he would have never received a doctorate and no one would call him “reverend”. He would actually be considered an embarrassment and probably not discussed too often.

    • Bardon Kaldian

      Not at all. Truly great leaders (unlike MLK) are known to be much more of an embarrassment & yet it’s only success that counts. And he succeeded.

  • Bardon Kaldian

    Plus- the article is intriguing, but …. Let’s not forget which times we’re living in: Miley Cyrus & “twerking”. Complete decadence. Only strong & articulated ideology can pull the White race out of this septic tank.

    Conservative Christians and communists love him.

    • Sick of it

      You mean pro-abortion and immigration “conservative Christians”?

      • jeffaral

        No, I mean the arch conservative people of the Southern Baptist Convention who elected a black, Mr Fred Luter, as their president. They consider Marching Looting King as a conservative hero. Just shows how sick and deluded conservative christians can be.

        • Sick of it

          He ran unopposed. Also, very odd.

    • ed

      Christianity is a dangerous mental sickness. Let’s hope more of our people rid themselves of it’s vile presence.

  • Greg Thomas

    Perhaps, but they are not being made out as saints like MLK. Maybe Glenn Beck will go off his meds one day and expose some of this dirt on St.MLK.

  • Gereng

    These stories have always been around and most people who chose to read them were
    convinced they were true. What he is alleged to have done is what 90% of black males do. He did every female that came close, he did drugs, drank too much, was too lazy to write his own speeches (or his dissertation). He lied and never did an honest day’s work in his life. In brief..he lived the life every black male aspires to.
    But because so many simple-minded liberals bought into his BS we now have blacks running the country and setting the tone in Hollywood and in DC. We have flash mobs and the knockout game and a soaring rate of black on white violence.

  • Every single one of Phyllis Schlafly’s children hold graduate degrees of some sort. Of course she herself is a lawyer.

    Be warned, though: There’s a side of the Schlafly family in St. Louis that is as left wing as all hell. The Schlafly beer you see in and around St. Louis, and the Schlafly that was on the St. Louis City school board, the one the relatively new SLPS admin building is named after, is from the liberal side. Mainly brothers, nephews, nieces, etc. of Phyllis’s husband.

  • Jack Burton

    If we had an honest media, maybe, but we don’t. Just look at all the absurd lies they told during the Zimmerman trial. It was total propaganda, and still is. Just shows you how much the media is in lockstep.

    Look at these clowns like Sharpton and Jackson, yet they’re still on mainstream media channels talking nonsense.

  • YngveKlezmer

    Those of us who have delved deeply into the old history books in the recesses of college library have known the ostensible “secrets” about MLK for years. It is all there in plain English, written by historians in the good old days, when honesty was expected of a writer of facts, and lying was still seen as it truly is, as just plain wrong. We have known for years that he was a sociopathic, venereal diseases infected idiot, no different from the majority of Negroid males. I am sure that many Blacks know this about him, and it only enhances his “street cred” for them.

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    What do you mean by “even”? Are you saying that you too believe that James Earl Ray was just a patsy?

  • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

    I must report to the author that the GOP did a pretty good job of trashing Bill Clinton for far less and never letting up on it. I’m just stating the facts, it’s history.

  • BaronBaal

    In short, he did what any black man would do if they are put in positions of power and influence…

  • OlderWoman

    He was no hero.

  • OlderWoman

    ‘Right Wing” activist Phyllis Schlafly is a Dame of Malta in service to the Catholic Church.

    That church is a perfect example of the Hegelian Dialectic.

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    Well, as for me I believe that James Earl Ray did kill Martin Loofer King completely on his own. I also believe even stronger that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered JFK entirely on his own as well. You know, when I first started looking into the Kennedy assassination I was like most people hoping to find some conspiracy, and I did. Or at least the books I read and the documentaries I watched did.

    However, when I actually bought and read the Warren Commission’s report. I began to see just how much corroborating evidence for Oswald being the lone assassin the people who promote the conspiracy angle, actually left out of their books and documentaries. Not to mention the misquotes, lies and whole sale fabrication of supposed evidence.

    Anyway,,, isn’t just wonderful how such an oppressive country towards it’s black citizens picked a black man’s birthday to make into a national holiday? An honor that no white man has ever received? Black People = DERP!!!

    • Being a St. Louisan, the JER/MLK narrative interests me.

      I can grok the official story on JER/MLK, right up to the point where he on the fly buys a plane ticket from Pearson to Heathrow. That was expensive in those days. I doubt he would have had that kind of money.

      • LIBERTYSINCURSION

        First let me just say that I’m sorry to hear that your place of residence is in St. Louis, no wonder you chose Question Diversity as your name. My condolences.

        So you’re saying it’s easier for you to believe that our Government murdered King, set James Earl Ray up and have successfully covered it up for the last 45 years. Than it is to believe that James Earl Ray was able to steal a few hundred dollars somewhere?

        • I would suppose a same day Pearson to Heathrow ticket would have cost thousands in 1968. JER was a serial robber, so he did show the propensity to take money and things that did not belong to him. I don’t know if he could have pulled off enough jobs to have that kind of money in his possession at one time, though.

          The alternate theory I think is most likely is that MLK’s own lieutenants (Jesse Jackson et al.) set JER up to knock MLK off because they wanted a living martyr and not a discredited used up miscreant preacher in their movement. JT said it himself: MLK was assassinated at just the right time. That blacks would have one of their own offed in order to benefit themselves, now that’s easy to believe.

          • LIBERTYSINCURSION

            Who exactly are you referring to by “JT”? And seriously friend, thousands of dollars in 1968, that seems quite high to me. However I never traveled to Europe so I haven’t got much experience as to the cost of such a flight. However I am curious as to just what those tickets cost today, do you know?

            As far as your alternate theory I would have to say, while I don’t put it past people like Jesse Jackson being more than willing to have someone murdered for their personal gain. The problem I have is with their ability to effectively cover it up. Remember, back then the FBI actually had stones when it came to dealing with the Marxist race pimping going on. Even to the point of trying to blackmail King into killing himself. I can’t picture them or the local police in anyway assisting in covering up King’s murder by his very own people. In the process allowing a white man and more importantly white people collectively to take the blame and simultaneously launch Martin Loofer King into martyrdom.

            However I can understand why some people would suspect Jackson of taking part in something like that considering what he did after King’s assassination. One of the other preachers at the Lorraine Motel actually watched Jackson walk over to the pool of King’s blood. After briefly looking around to see if anyone was watching him he bent down, dipped his hand’s in the blood, and wiped his hands on the front of his shirt. He then left the group that was there with King that night (The Only One To Do That) and went on a 3 day spree of interviews wearing that blood stained shirt. Telling all who would listen a version of the assassination that starred Jesse Jackson right at the center of it all. Saying that he cradled King’s head and that’s where all the blood on his shirt, which he was sure to point out in every interview, came from. In short, Jesse Jackson is certainly a selfish enough egotistical jackass to do such a thing. But is he smart enough to pull it off, and have it covered up for the last 45 years? No I don’t think so.

          • JT = Jared Taylor.

            The “his own people” did it is the only credible alternate explanation to the official story. All the other theories, e.g. the Federal government did it, right wing groups did it, are so nonsense because they have more holes in them than a square mile piece of Swiss cheese. One “right wingers conspired to kill MLK” theory involves a St. Louis tavern that JER used to hang out, that was in a building close to where I grew up, pictured below, (1938 Arsenal Street, recently renovated). The problem with that theory is that it involves two people closely working with each other within the confines of that ex-tavern that didn’t even meet each other until years after MLK was assassinated. Any theory that the Feds did it is nonsense because by 1968, the Feds were full blown into civil rights and BRA. Why would the Feds off someone who is associated with an agenda they were pushing?
