The Unknown Martin Luther King, Jr.

Benjamin J. Ryan, American Renaissance, January 2009

We reprint our sober assessment of MLK from 2009 because we don’t think it can be significantly improved.

Forty years after his death, the popularity of Martin Luther King remains extraordinary. He is perhaps the single most praised person in American history, and millions adore him as a hero and almost a saint. The federal government has made space available on the Mall in Washington for a national monument for King, not far from Lincoln’s. Only four men in American history have national monuments: Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt; and now King will make five.

King is the only American who enjoys the nation’s highest honor of having a national holiday on his birthday. There are other days of remembrance such as Presidents’ Day, but no one else but Jesus Christ is recognized with a similar holiday. Does King deserve such honors? Much that has been known to scholars for years–but largely unknown to most Americans–suggests otherwise.

Plagiarism

As a young man, King started plagiarizing the work of others and he continued this practice throughout his career.

At Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, Pennsylvania, where he received a bachelor of divinity degree in 1951, many of his papers contained material lifted verbatim and without acknowledgement from published sources. An extensive project started at Stanford University in 1984 to publish all of King’s papers tracked down the original sources for these early papers and concluded that his academic writings are “tragically flawed by numerous instances of plagiarism.” Journalist Theodore Pappas, who has also reviewed the collection, found one paper showing “verbatim theft” in 20 of a total of 24 paragraphs. He writes:

“King’s plagiarisms are easy to detect because their style rises above the level of his pedestrian student prose. In general, if the sentences are eloquent, witty, insightful, or pithy, or contain allusions, analogies, metaphors, or similes, it is safe to assume that the section has been purloined.”

King also plagiarized himself, recycling old term papers as new ones. Some of his professors complained about sloppy references, but they seem to have had no idea how extensively he was stealing material, and his habits were well established by the time he entered the PhD program at Boston University. King plagiarized one-third of his 343-page dissertation, the book-length project required to earn a PhD, leading some to say he should be stripped of his doctoral degree. Mr. Pappas explains that King’s plagiarism was a lifelong habit:

“King’s Nobel Prize Lecture was plagiarized extensively from works by Florida minister J. Wallace Hamilton; the sections on Gandhi and nonviolence in his ‘Pilgrimage’ speech were taken virtually verbatim from Harris Wofford’s speech on the same topic; the frequently replayed climax to the ‘I Have a Dream’ speech–the ‘from every mountainside, let freedom ring’ portion–came from a 1952 address to the Republican National Convention by a black preacher named Archibald Carey; and the 1968 sermon in which King prophesied his martyrdom was based on works by J. Wallace Hamilton and Methodist minister Harold Bosley.”

Perhaps King had no choice but to use the words of others. Mr. Pappas has found that on the Graduate Record Exam, King “scored in the second-lowest quartile in English and vocabulary, in the lowest ten percent in quantitative analysis, and in the lowest third on his advanced test in philosophy.”

Adultery

King lived a double life. During the day, he would speak to large crowds, quoting Scripture and invoking God’s will, and at night he frequently had sex with women from the audience. “King’s habits of sexual adventure had been well established by the time he was married,” says Michael Eric Dyson of Georgetown University, a King admirer. He notes that King often “told lewd jokes,” “shared women with friends,” and was “sexually reckless.” According to King biographer Taylor Branch, during a long party on the night of January 6 and 7, 1964, an FBI bugging device recorded King’s “distinctive voice ring out above others with pulsating abandon, saying, “˜I’m f***ing for God!’”

Sex with single and married women continued after King married, and on the night before his death, King had two adulterous trysts. His first rendezvous was at a woman’s house, the second in a hotel room. The source for this was his best friend and second-in-command, Ralph Abernathy, who noted that the second woman was “a member of the Kentucky legislature,” now known to be Georgia Davis Powers.

Abernathy went on to say that a third woman was also looking for King that same night, but found his bed empty. She knew his habits and was angry when they met later that morning. In response, writes Abernathy, King “lost his temper” and “knocked her across the bed. . . . She leapt up to fight back, and for a moment they were engaged in a full-blown fight, with [King] clearly winning.” A few hours later, King ate lunch with Abernathy and discussed the importance of nonviolence for their movement.

To other colleagues, King justified his adultery this way: “I’m away from home twenty-five to twenty-seven days a month. F***ing’s a form of anxiety reduction.” King had many one-night stands but also grew close to one of his girlfriends in a relationship that became, according to Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer David Garrow, “the emotional centerpiece of King’s life.” Still, sex with other women remained “a commonplace of King’s travels.”

In private, King could be extremely crude. On one FBI recording, King said to Abernathy in what was no doubt a teasing remark, “Come on over here, you big black motherf***er, and let me suck your d**k.” FBI sources told Taylor Branch about a surveillance tape of King watching a televised rerun of the Kennedy funeral. When he saw the famous moment when Jacqueline Kennedy knelt with her children before her dead husband’s coffin, King reportedly sneered, “Look at her. Sucking him off one last time.”

Despite his obsession with sex and his betrayal of his own wife and children, and despite Christianity’s call for fidelity, King continued to claim the moral authority of a Baptist minister.

Whites

King stated that the “vast majority of white Americans are racist” and that they refused to share power. His solution was to redistribute wealth and power through reparations for slavery and racial quotas:

“No amount of gold could provide an adequate compensation for the exploitation and humiliation of the Negro in America down through the centuries. Not all the wealth of this affluent society could meet the bill. Yet a price can be placed on unpaid wages. . . . The payment should be in the form of a massive program by the government of special, compensatory measures which could be regarded as a settlement.” Continued King, “Moral justification for such measures for Negroes is rooted in the robberies inherent in the institution of slavery.” He named his plan the Bill of Rights for the Disadvantaged. Some poor whites would also receive compensation because they were “derivative victims of slavery,” but the welfare of blacks was his central focus.

King has been praised, even by conservatives, as the great advocate of color-blindness. They focus too narrowly on one sentence in his “I Have a Dream” speech, in which he said he wanted to live in a nation “where [my children] will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” The truth is that King wanted quotas for blacks. “[I]f a city has a 30 percent Negro population,” King reasoned, “then it is logical to assume that Negroes should have at least 30 percent of the jobs in any particular company, and jobs in all categories rather than only in menial areas.”

One of King’s greatest achievements is said to have been passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. At the signing ceremony on July 2, he stood directly behind President Lyndon Johnson as a key guest. The federal agency created by the act, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, now monitors hiring practices and ensures that King’s desires for racial preferences are met.

Like liberals today, King denied racial differences. In a reply to an interviewer who told him many Southern whites thought racial differences were a biological fact, he replied:

“This utterly ignorant fallacy has been so thoroughly refuted by the social scientists, as well as by medical science, that any individual who goes on believing it is standing in an absolutely misguided and diminishing circle. The American Anthropological Association has unanimously adopted a resolution repudiating statements that Negroes are biologically, in innate mental ability or in any other way inferior to whites.”

The conclusions to be drawn from his belief in across-the-board equality were clear: failure by blacks to achieve at the level of whites could be explained only by white oppression. As King explained in one interview, “I think we have to honestly admit that the problems in the world today, as they relate to the question of race, must be blamed on the whole doctrine of white supremacy, the whole doctrine of racism, and these doctrines came into being through the white race and the exploitation of the colored peoples of the world.” King predicted that “if the white world” does not stop this racism and oppression, “then we can end up in the world with a kind of race war.”

Communism

In his public speeches, King never called himself a communist, instead claiming to stand for a synthesis of capitalism and communism: “[C]apitalism fails to realize that life is social. Communism fails to realize that life is individual. Truth is found neither in the rugged individualism of capitalism nor in the impersonal collectivism of communism. The Kingdom of God is found in a synthesis that combines the truths of these two opposites.”

However, David Garrow found that in private King “made it clear to close friends that economically speaking he considered himself what he termed a Marxist.” Mr. Garrow passes along an account of a conversation C.L.R. James, a Marxist intellectual, had with King: “King leaned over to me saying, ‘I don’t say such things from the pulpit, James, but that is what I really believe.’. . . King wanted me to know that he understood and accepted, and in fact agreed with, the ideas that I was putting forward–ideas which were fundamentally Marxist-Leninist. . . . I saw him as a man whose ideas were as advanced as any of us on the Left, but who, as he actually said to me, could not say such things from the pulpit. . . . King was a man with clear ideas, but whose position as a churchman, etc. imposed on him the necessity of reserve.” J. Pius Barbour, a close friend of King’s at seminary, agreed that he “was economically a Marxist.”

Some of King’s most influential advisors were Communists with direct ties to the Soviet Union. One was Stanley Levison, whom Mr. Garrow called King’s “most important political counselor” and “at Martin Luther King’s elbow.” He organized fundraisers for King, counseled him on tax issues and political strategy, wrote fundraising letters and his United Packinghouse Workers Convention speech, edited parts of his books, advised him on his first major national address, and prepped King for questions from the media. Coretta Scott King said of Levison that he was “[a]lways working in the background, his contribution has been indispensable,” and Mr. Garrow says the association with Levison was “without a doubt King’s closest friendship with a white person.”

What were Levison’s political views? John Barron is the author of Operation SOLO, which is about “the most vital intelligence operation the FBI ever had sustained against the Soviet Union.” Part of its work was to track Levison who, according to Mr. Barron, “gained admission into the inner circle of the communist underground” in the US. Mr. Garrow, a strong defender of King, admits that Levison was “one of the two top financiers” of the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA), which received about one million dollars a year from the Soviet Union. Mr. Garrow found that Levison was “directly involved in the Communist Party’s most sensitive financial dealings,” and acknowledged there was first-hand evidence of Levison’s “financial link to the Soviet Union.”

Hunter Pitts O’Dell, who was elected in 1959 to the national committee, the governing body for the CPUSA, was another party member who worked for King. According to FBI reports, Levison installed O’Dell as the head of King’s New York office, and later recommended that O’Dell be made King’s executive assistant in Atlanta.

King knew his associates were Communists. President Kennedy himself gave an “explicit personal order” to King advising against his “shocking association with Stanley Levison.” Once when he was walking privately with King in the White House Rose Garden, Kennedy also named O’Dell and said to King: “They’re Communists. You’ve got to get rid of them.”

The Communist connections help explain why Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy authorized the FBI to wiretap King’s home and office telephones in October 1963. Kennedy, like his brother John, was deeply sympathetic to King but also aware of the threat of communism.

Mr. Garrow tried to exonerate King of the charge of being a fellow traveler by arguing that Levison broke with the CPUSA while he worked for King, that is, from the time he met King in the summer of 1956 until King’s death in 1968. However, as historian Samuel Francis has pointed out, an official break with the CPUSA does not necessarily mean a break with the goals of communism or with the Soviet Union.

John Barron argues that if Levison had defected from the CPUSA and renounced communism, he would not have associated with former comrades, such as CP officials Lem Harris, Hunter Pitts O’Dell, and Roy Bennett (Levison’s twin brother who had changed his last name). He was also close to the highly placed KGB officer Victor Lessiovsky, who was an assistant to the head of the United Nations, U Thant.

Mr. Barron asks why Lessiovsky would “fritter away his time and risk his career . . . by repeatedly indulging himself in idle lunches or amusing cocktail conversation with an undistinguished lawyer [Levison] . . . who had nothing to offer the KGB, or with someone who had deserted the party and its discipline, or with someone about whom the KGB knew nothing? . . . And why would an ordinary American lawyer . . . meet, again and again, with a Soviet assistant to the boss of the United Nations?”

Other Communists who worked with King included Aubrey Williams, James Dombrowski, Carl Braden, William Melish, Ella J. Baker, Bayard Rustin, and Benjamin Smith. King also “associated and cooperated with a number of groups known to be CPUSA front organizations or to be heavily penetrated and influenced by members of the Communist Party–for example, the Southern Conference Educational Fund; Committee to Secure Justice for Morton Sobell; the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America; the National Lawyers Guild; and the Highlander Folk School.

The CPUSA clearly tried to influence King and his movement. An FBI report of May 6, 1960 from Jack Childs, one of the FBI’s most accomplished spies and a winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom for Intelligence, said that the CP “feels that it is definitely to the Party’s advantage to assign outstanding Party members to work with the [Martin] Luther King group. CP policy at the moment is to concentrate upon Martin Luther King.”

As Republican Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina concluded in a Senate speech written by Francis, King’s alliance with Communists was evidence of “identified Communists . . . planning the influencing and manipulation of King for their own purposes.” At the same time, King relied on them for speech writing, fundraising, and raising public awareness. They, in turn, used his stature and fame to their own benefit. Senator Helms cited Congressman John M. Ashbrook, a ranking member of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, who said: “King has consistently worked with Communists and has helped give them a respectability they do not deserve. I believe he has done more for the Communist Party than any other person of this decade.”

Christianity

King strongly doubted several core beliefs of Christianity. “I was ordained to the Christian ministry,” he claimed, but Stanford University’s online repository includes King’s seminary writings in which he disputed the full divinity of Jesus, the Virgin Birth, and the Resurrection, suggesting that we “strip them of their literal interpretation.”

Regarding the divine nature of Jesus, King wrote that Jesus was godlike, but not God. People called Jesus divine because they “found God in him” like a divinely inspired teacher, not because he literally was God, as Jesus himself claimed. On the Virgin Birth, King wrote:

“First we must admit that the evidence for the tenability of this doctrine is to [sic] shallow to convince any objective thinker. How then did this doctrine arise? A clue to this inquiry may be found in a sentence from St. Justin’s First Apology. Here Justin states that the birth of Jesus is quite similar to the birth of the sons of Zeus. It was believed in Greek thought that an extraordinary person could only be explained by saying that he had a father who was more than human. It is probable that this Greek idea influenced Christian thought.”

Concerning the Resurrection, King wrote: “In fact the external evidence for the authenticity of this doctrine is found wanting.” The early church, he says, formulated this doctrine because it “had been captivated by the magnetic power of his [Jesus’] personality. This basic experience led to the faith that he could never die. And so in the pre-scientific thought pattern of the first century, this inner faith took outward form.” Thus, in this view, Jesus’ body never rose from the dead, even though according to Scripture, “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile.”

Two other essays show how King watered down Christianity. In one, he wrote that contemporary mystery religions influenced New Testament writers: “[A]fter being in contact with these surrounding religions and hearing certain doctrines expressed, it was only natural for some of these views to become part of their subconscious minds. . . . That Christianity did copy and borrow from Mithraism cannot be denied, but it was generally a natural and unconscious process rather than a deliberate plan of action.” In another essay, King wrote that liberal theology “was an attempt to bring religion up intellectually,” and the introduction to the paper at the Stanford website says that King was “scornful of fundamentalism.” King wrote that in fundamentalism the Trinity, the Atonement, and the Second Coming are “quite prominent,” but again, these are defining beliefs of Christianity.

Known and unknown

King is both known and unknown. Millions worldwide see him as a moral messiah, and American schools teach young children to praise him. In the United States there are no fewer than 777 streets named for him. But King is also unknown because only a few people are aware of the unsavory aspects of his life. The image most people have of King is therefore cropped and incomplete.

In the minds of many, King towers above other Americans as a distinguished orator and writer, but this short, 5″6′ man often stole the words of others. People believe he was a Christian, but he doubted some of the fundamentals of the faith. Our country honors King, but he worked closely with Communists who aimed to destroy it. He denied racial differences, but fought for racial favoritism in the form of quotas. He claimed to be for freedom, but he wanted to force people to associate with each other and he promoted the redistribution of wealth in the form of reparations for slavery. He quoted the ringing words of the Bible and claimed, as a preacher, to be striving to be more like Jesus, but his colleagues knew better.

Perhaps he, too, knew better. His closest political advisor, Stanley Levison, said King was “an intensely guilt-ridden man” and his wife Coretta also called him “a guilt-ridden man.” Levison said that the praise heaped upon King was “a continual series of blows to his conscience” because he was such a humble man. If King was guilt-ridden might it have been because he knew better than anyone the wide gap between his popular image and his true character?

The FBI surveillance files could throw considerable light on his true character, but they will not be made public until 2027. On January 31, 1977, as a result of lawsuits by King’s allies against the FBI, a US district judge ordered the files sealed for 50 years. There are reportedly 56 feet of records–tapes, transcripts, and logs–in the custody of the National Archives and Record Service.

Meanwhile, for those who seek to know the real identity of this nearly untouchable icon, there is still plenty of evidence with which to answer the question: Was Martin Luther King, Jr. America’s best and greatest man?

      There is complete mythology surrounding MLK. He’s been deified and lionized throughout American culture.

      There should be an expose on MLK’s immorality, plagiarism, orgies, communist ties and hypocrisy, he, and the truth needs to be “outted.”

      Cultural Marxists don’t hesitate to call out and vilify the Founding Fathers of America on slavery, and genocidal colonialism – labeling them “irrelevant, dead old White men with no redeeming qualities.”

      I am sick of it.

        These leftists are teaching their version in the grade schools, unfortunately.

            A classroom with the racial mix indicated in that second picture=HELL for the White children. I’m presently reading Carleton Putnam’s Race and Reason: A Yankee View. In this book, he points out of the hypocrisy of Northerners, with their children safely esconsed in all White schools, are engaging in first class hypocrisy by forcing integration on White Southerners. Written in 1958, though, Putnam is also describing a North with few non-Whites. Many of the present majority Negro no go zones were still mostly White, clean, low crime places.

            I have little white children. Four of them, and I tell them the truth about MLK in defiance of what they’re taught in school every year about this time.

          • SentryattheGate

            Good; and make sure they learn about white slavery too (in about the same numbers as black slaves). British orphans, drunks, people in debtor prisons, petty criminals, Irish and Scots cleared off their land etc. were shipped to the New World and sold. Indentured servitude was not as clean and easy as gov’t schools presented it to us. But little is known or taught about these people, nor reparations for them.

            As someone who wants to be a father eventually, any advice on how to raise children to know the truth from an early age without having to worry they’ll end up repeating what you’ve told them in front of classmates, friends, and teachers and then bring down the destructive power of the modern liberal PC gulag on them and your whole family?

            My children know “daddy’s a racist”, but at the same time they’ve seen me interact with and talk highly of certain nonwhites. My two oldest are at double digit age and know it’s undesirable to live in a non-white environment but have seen my respect and even admiration for two different African priests who visited our parish.

            The same thought has occurred to me. The first to go will be Jefferson, whom they’ll replace with MLK. Cesar Chavez will replace Roosevelt, followed by Betty Friedan replacing Washington. Lincoln will last a while longer until a suitable Asian is found. Zuckersteinowitz will sponsor the federal legislation, and the firm of Loeb, Finkleberg, & Shapiro will manage the program.

        I’m sick of it as well. Everyone knows that Strom Thurmond fathered an illegitimate Mulatto child. One has to dig into the history books, though, to discover that good old Strom also put his Mulatto daughter through college, and had good relations with her, doing everything he could to give her a good life. As proof of his love and decency for her, She was so proud to be half Thurmond, that She joined the Daughters of Confederate Veterans. In short, Strom Thurmond made the best of his mistake. I will always believe that the Negress with whom 23 year old Strom miscegenated practically raped Strom. MLK, by contrast, probably fathered countless illegitimate offspring, and, in typical Negro male style, never even met these offspring. An honest media that did not shower Negroes with undeserved preferential treatment would not propagate such lies.

        In other words – King was a “progressive”. What is a “progressive”? A “progressive” is a Marxist, publicly practicing ketman while secretly working for Marxist-communist ideals. There has not been a non-Marxist “progressive” since Teddy Roosevelt.

      I don’t think they do. The narrative of sainthood that comes out of the media and is taught in schools is far too powerful. I made a comment on Roger Clegg’s column on National Review this morning pointing out that MLK would support the disparate impact claims being made by blacks complete with a link as evidence. I was promptly called a liar and a “communist-progressive-Marxist” by another reader. I got a laugh out of it and corrected him, but it shows how difficult it is to convince people. The worst part is, it’s not like the truth about King is hard to find.

        It’s funny that Americans complain about how liberal the media is over there. I won’t argue with you about the print, entertainment and news media but the radio media is centre right and sometimes can be pro white. I’m think of Rushh, Michael Savage, Opie and Anthony and another few have made comments that wouldn’t be out of place again Amren. In the UK there is nothing remotely like that. When I started listening to American radio I was shocked at what the host’s were aloud to say. Some of my friends listen to American radio now and they said the same thing. If Anthony Cumia lived in the UK, he would be in jail and would never ever be aloud within a twenty mile radius of a microphone.

    Nevertheless, Martin Luther King, Jr. was an effective leader. Without the power to enforce his decisions he made the 1960’s what they were. It would have been a different decade without him.

    In his “I have a dream” speech he borrowed from the writings of the Old Testament prophets Amos and Isaiah, the Gettysburg Address, and Shakespeare. This was not plagiarism. It revealed how the writings of these other men had been assimilated by a cultivated mind.

    His womanizing was unacceptable for a clergyman. Nevertheless, a man with his fame and charisma faced temptations I never have.

    • If Martin Luther King was born 50 years earlier, nobody would have ever heard of him. If he was born 30 years later, he’d be just one of many hustling black preachers. He was lucky enough to have been born at just the right time such that his preaching-hustling-activist career was gaining steam when forces other than him were responsible for pushing the civil rights movement to victory. It’s just that he got the credit.

      If he would have never existed, the civil rights movement would have happened anyway.

        King’s plagiarisms are easy to detect because their style rises above the level of his pedestrian student prose. In general, if the sentences are eloquent, witty, insightful, or pithy, or contain allusions, analogies, metaphors, or similes, it is safe to assume that the section has been purloined.
        ~ Theodore Pappas

    • Andy

      Archibald Carey borrowed from Amos, Isaiah, Lincoln, and Shakespeare. He made clearly recognizable references.

      Martin Luther King took Carey’s ideas and gave no credit for them. Perhaps we could give him the benefit of the doubt if that was the only apparent example of plagiarism. It is not. His school only didn’t strip him of his degree because he later became famous.

      Womanizing, woman-beating, and making crude remarks about mourners strikes me as intensely dislikeable.

      Perhaps he was an *effective* leader. However, that’s only a good thing if you’re leading in the right direction.

    • LHathaway

      King was about blaming white men and white society for racism, ‘inequality’, world wide oppression, violence and ignorance. He was relatively good at it: it’s difficult to pin down what he said and call it ‘hatred’ although that’s what it was. What nationalists could learn a thing or two from him. He advocated on behalf of the oppressed.

      According to this view, people of color are born blank slates, pristine and noble creatures of good until they come into contact with Whites and are corrupted. Their faults are caused by others, oppression and their environments. Whites, on the hand, are raised with original sin. They must be watched, educated about legislated against and constrained.

      It turns out some things are caused by genes. Other things are caused by environment. Mental illness, alcoholism, depression, autism, suicide susceptibility, attention deficit disorder, homosexuality, these things are all caused by genetics, we’re learning more everyday. Everything else wrong on this Earth is caused by an oppressive system that is unfair to some.

      It’s true, some things are caused by environment and other things are caused by genetics

      King was no different than anything else coming out of the 1960’s.

Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.’ And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.”

      …to Archibald Carey’s 1952 GOP convention speech:

      “We, Negro Americans, sing with all loyal Americans: My country ’tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, Land of the Pilgrims’ pride From every mountainside Let freedom ring! That’s exactly what we mean – from every mountainside, let freedom ring. Not only from the Green Mountains and White Mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire; not only from the Catskills of New York; but from the Ozarks in Arkansas, from the Stone Mountain in Georgia, from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Let it ring not only for the minorities of the United States, but for the disinherited of all the earth! May the Republican Party, under God, from every mountainside, LET FREEDOM RING!”

      Anthony Johnson was himself a slave. He was freed more than ten years later and became a slave owner. Obviously, it is impossible for him to have been the first slave owner in the colonies.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Anthony Johnson was not a slave, he was an indentured servant:

        According to colonial records, the first slave owner in the United States was a black man.

        Prior to 1655 there were no legal slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit that an indentured servant could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of land. This included any Negro purchased from slave traders. Negros were also granted 50 acres upon their release.

        Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought to the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed when Powhatan Indians attacked the farm. 52 out of 57 people on the farm perished in the attack. He married a female black servant while working on the farm.

        When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Negro” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker.

        Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own slave of their own race. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner.

          Even if you have a strict distinction between temporary and permanent slavery, there is still the case of John Punch which predated Anthony Johnson by 15 years.

    You had a dream. The rest of us have lived a nightmare for 50 years thanks to that dream. You asked to be judged on the content of your character and we have complied. Unfortunately, it has been seen to be indolent, parasitic, violent, criminal, degenerate and self centred beyond any hope of remedy. More fool us for listening in the first place.

    • Ludwig

      This article speaks volumes to the content of his character.

      • Dr.Bazzi

        What character, he was a reprobate who is supported by fellow reprobates of the left.

      • Dr.Bazzi

        Have you ever read Ayn Rand’s books, Particularly “We The Living”?

        • Ludwig

          I haven’t read it but I looked it up and I assume your point is that King was communist provocateur. My previous comment was completely sarcastic, meaning that this article more accurately portrays his true character. I have known for quite some time the info in this article.

          • Dr.Bazzi

            I understand you comment.
            If you get the opportunity get the book, you will see how the Communist persecuted successful people, stole their property, implemented “health care”, created “fair housing” laws and had these people feel guilty about being accomplished.
            The book was pirated and made into a movie in 1942 in Fascist Italy and there are clips of it on YouTube in English subtitles.
            Another book called, It’s Very Simple (the true story of civil rights) by Alan Stang shows that the civil right movement was conceived by the Communists.

          • Ludwig

            I looked up the Alan Stang book and yes it looks like something that falls right in line with my way of thinking. I may look further into it.

    Who is this Martin Luther King Jr.? And why is he so important?

    I’m celebrating Robert E. Lee day today!!

    A true American hero who stood up for his people.

    • Awakened Saxon

      Even in a post commemorating Gen. Lee, he is called American instead of Southern?

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Anthony Johnson was not a slave, he was an indentured servant:

        Anthony Johnson first came over to America as an indentured servant, arriving in 1620 in the Colony of Virginia. He did not come over willingly, as many did, agreeing to become indentured servants in exchange for passage to the New World. Rather, Johnson was captured in Angola by neighboring tribesmen and eventually sold to a merchant who transported him to Virginia, where he was then sold to a tobacco farmer.

        Despite this, Johnson was not technically a slave, as most think of it. He was simply required to serve the farmer for a time in exchange for room and board. However, like slaves, indentured servants could be sold or lent out to someone else, and, for the most part, they could be punished how those that owned their contracts saw fit.

        • Awakened Saxon

          I am inclined to refer to anyone who is forced into indentured servitude a ‘slave’, even if there is a set time of release established. Indentured servants who volunteered for it are a different story.

        • Awakened Saxon

          I hate it when people radically change a post after I have already replied to it.

          Gen. Lee fought for the South and only the South can claim him. Calling him an American hero cheapens him.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            I hate it when Whites try to divide us into “us” and “them” – That’s what our enemies do to weaken us.

            We need to unite, otherwise we’re not going to survive.

            Gen. Lee was a White hero, not just for Southerners.

            My post wasn’t “radically changed” – I moved it onto your second comment.

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

    the thing I find disturbing in this article is great men like George Washington ,Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin ,who founded this once great country do not have their own holiday on their birthday ! what a disgrace this once country turned out to be.

    • Alexandra1973

      Washington and Lincoln used to have their birthdays as holidays. The school district in Michigan where I went to school had a mid-February break, part of the reason was Washington’s birthday.

      For whatever reason they just decided to have one day to honor all the presidents.

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      Well said. An accurate celebration of the Negro contributions to our workplaces woupd be for all of us Whites to come in half an hour late, give the boss a cock and bull reason for why, and to focus on everything other than the task at hand thd entire work day, thereby increasing greatly the workload on our White co-workers. Focusing on the task at hand, yo, dat be White , man!! Blacks who focus on the task at hand, dey be oreo cookies man!!

  • Sick of it

    To put it simply, he was a complete phoney. To be labeled a hypocrite, he would have had to have believed in something.

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      A typical Negro is more like it. A hedonistic, self-serving sociopath who is only happy when he is being worshipped. Judging MLK by the content of his character, I think that calling him an arrogant a*s is being courteous. A steaming cow pie just dumped in the pasture has more content of character than Martin Luther King ever had.

      • Sick of it

        In other words, blacks are too primitive to live in white nations with white people.

    • Bryce Armstrong

      The hypocrites are those on the “right” who fawn all over this clown.

  • Steven Williams

    Any white American conservative who regards this MLK as a true American and Hitler as a fascist dictator is a traitor to America.

  • Cecil Broomsted

    Did any of this information come out in the “Selma” film?

    • Kenner

      Yes. Courtney Love was nominated as best supporting actress for ‘battered white prostitute Krispee Keebler.’

      • Bryce Armstrong

        I think her credited screen name was “battered white prostitute #1”.

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      If this film depicts any of the truth about MLK, I will be shocked. I have no plans to waste my hard earned dollars on a film that is probably just another piece of White bashing propaganda, courtesy of the Obongo Administration being in bed with the Leftist media. This film is undoubtedly nothing but a piece of anti-White excrement designed with the sole purpose of stimulating Blacks to leave the theater and seek knock-out game victims. Every one of these race baiting, villify Whitey garbage propaganda films, that has hit the theaters since Obongo has been in office, is geared to this purpose, and this purpose only. In a sensible White country, every one of these films would be banned as anti-White hate speech. That is all these films are. These films incite Blacks to further violence against Whites. How about a story about a Southern family that treated their slaves exceptionally well? Hollywood will never produce such a positive and honest film, but they should. Blacks need to be treated to a few films that remind them how well Whites have treated them.

        I won’t watch it even when it shows up on ON DEMAND.

    • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

      Are you kidding? They only make MLK a SAINT!!

  • Seniorsquadldr

    Had James Earl been more efficient, we could have had a whole week off.

    • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

      Funny you should say that. In the 80s when the MLK holiday was being debated, there was a talk show host called the Greaseman who made a joke about how if they killed 4 more Negros, then we could have the whole week off. Unfortunately he was kicked out for this and other non PC comments.

      • Alexandra1973

        Was he out of Florida? I recall reading a true crime book about Ted Bundy, and some radio DJ known as “Greaseman” put a microphone to some sizzling bacon and said that was for Ted.

    • Who Me?

      According to Jesse Jackson, he was there on the balcony when King was shot. Too bad they didn’t get him as well.

  • Rusty Shackelford

    I had to work today, but my wife was able to let freedom ring instead of her alarm clock.

  • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

    Excellent article. The facts presented in this article have been present in the history books for all to read for many years. I read the realities of MLK, over 25 years ago, in a thick college history text I had pulled from the shelves of my University library. His sordid personal life was laid bare, a sociopathic romp rife with recreational sex and domestic violence. Any decent person who reads the true story of who MLK actually was cannot help but to judge him as a despicable sociopath. The content of his character resembled the contents of a commode prior to hitting the flush knob.

  • MBlanc46

    The saddest part of this business is that the facts discussed above have widely published. Given King’s fame, they should be disseminated far and wide. However, they are suppressed by those who are responsible for informing the public.

    • Dr.Bazzi

      This character was a Doctor of Depravity. A paid agent of the Communists to provoke a Marxist agenda ( evidenced by the present Negroid fraud in the Whitehouse).
      The Media in the 1960s did nothing to expose this satanic creature because they like the media today was controlled by the leftists who presented this devil as holy man.
      If he is such a “holy man”, why are the records taken by the real FBI ( not the complicit criminals of today) on him sealed up. What do they really revile about him that they need to be hidden.
      Notice that O”bobo records are also hidden.
      Every year its the same media propaganda that the fool white dummies and the black sycophants march and cry.

  • Chasmania

    I would love to be sitting in the inner city HS classroom where this article was read to them and then opened for comments. Would probably make Ferguson riots look like a picnic.

    • De Doc

      In truth they’d probably be very confused and then grow bored at all the multisyllabic prose offered to them. That of course is reason enough to riot.

      • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

        They would probably think MLK was cooler than ever after hearing this story of his degeneracy: “Yo, yo, K be gettin’ all the bitc*es and hoes, he be da man!!” is what a White teacher would hear as chaos erupted.

        • Bryce Armstrong

          On a serious note, when I was in school was when the character issues first started coming out. I had hoped this would be the “smoking gun” that destroyed the idea of his “greatness”. Instead what I got was this,” it just goes to show you he was human like the rest of us, if anything it makes him more likable”. EXCUSE ME, cheating on your wife with prostitutes is something commonplace now!? It just goes to show you how far our standards have fallen that adultery is considered normal.

          Did I mention my teachers were all Republican?

  • ssohara

    King’s views on Christian origins are similar to those of many more scholarly NT students, including white liberal clergy, but I completely agree with this critique of the ludicrous “deification” not of Jesus but of King (and likewise Mandela).

    However, I hereby exercise my own free speech by saying that I do not myself believe that the Resurrection narratives in the gospels are compatible or accurate accounts of actual events. How many AmRen followers believe, or even “know”, that not only Jesus but other holy folk also left their tombs as “recorded” in the first gospel, for instance?

  • WJaMrenfan

    Having no pressing tasks, I allotted part of a dreary January Monday to see the movie “Selma” with my tween daughter. The theater was crammed with celebrants and we took our assigned seats down in the front for an “in your face” viewing. Nothing about the movie itself is notable; it conformed to the script. The chasm between the critic’s hosannas and the content of its celluloid was ho-hum.

    The audio for the post-movie credits was a “collaborative track” by Selma actor Common and songwriter John Legend that waved the moth-eaten Rosa>St. Martin>Ferguson banner. I mark 2014 as they year I exhibited symptoms of Negro-Fatigo; a conscious state of being beyond exhausted by harangues about black woe & virtue and white culpability & malevolence.

    If left untreated, Negro-Fatigo can be fatal. AmRen is highly effective for treatment of symptoms of Negro-Fatigo. Devour its reprint of the 2009 MLK piece for instant relief. If you have come in contact with anyone who may have Negro-Fatigo, give them a copy. Don’t talk to your doctor about Negro-Fatigo. Exercise your 1st amendment rights of speech and assembly regularly for long-term relief of Negro-Fatigo.

    And go see a really good movie, like Unbroken or American Sniper.

    It is for all of the above that the Left want to deify this man. King was at the right place and at the right time. He caught a wave and road it to fame. Did he do a lot of good? Yes he did. But the civli rights movement would have happened without him. He was not a game changer. He did not create a movement nor did he leave anything lasting behind. The laws were past by white legislatures because of pressure from the white population. The all white media created Martin Luther just as it created Obama. Had King not been assassinated his fame and influence would have faded away as the above revelations came to light. J Edgar Hoover was his responsible for his early demise. Hoover was a much more evil man, one of the worst in out history.
