Unexpectedly the government released a small amount of information about the eminently notable Dr. Rev. MLK Jr. in a report from 3/12/1968 called Martin Luther King, Jr., A Current Analysis. This is merely twenty pages out of probably hundreds that we don’t have access to yet. That’s because some of his associates sued to have the records destroyed, and the judge compromised by sealing the records for fifty years.
What possibly could there have been about this leftist hero that they didn’t want you to know? We got a new tidbit of this ahead of time. Here’s what the brief FBI document contained.
Camping out on the White House lawn?
After a short statement of purpose, it describes the Washington Spring Project (also known as the Poor People’s March on Washington).
He has announced that he will lead a massive civil disobedience campaign that will disrupt the normal course of business and, in fact, close down the Nation’s Capital.
Well, gosh, shutting down Washington DC seems a little drastic. But at least it’s nonviolent, right? We can rest assured that the motives were pure, isn’t that so?
King predicted that this massive civil disobedience will be more effective than riots. Concerning civil disobedience, King declared, “To dislocate the function of a city without destroying it can be more effective than a riot, because it can be longer lasting, costly to society, but not wantonly destructive.”
Uh, that’s interesting. It also paraphrased MLK’s plans to:
…conduct sit-ins, camp-ins, and sleep-ins at every Government facility available including the White House lawn.
Following this in the document was the discussion of the possibility for violence. It doesn’t discuss the following, but I’ll add a couple of my own observations. First, quite a bit of violence often followed in the wake of King’s demonstrations, which is rather odd given his reputation of being a peacemaker. Second, he did indicate at least once that he didn’t mind this, since these incidents worked to his overall favor.
The way this event really happened didn’t go quite so far as camping out on the White House lawn. However, there was indeed a tent city lasting six weeks, which had some of the problems Occupy Wall Street suffered much later. If that public nuisance was anything like the Selma brouhaha, I’m sure it was a sight for the tourists.
MLK in bed with the Reds
There’s been much talk about whether the ol’ Drum Major of Social Justice was a fellow traveler, but the document does add this and quite a bit more to the discussion:
Another complicating factor in the picture is the degree of communist influence on King. One of King’s principal advisors is Stanley David Levison. Ostensibly only a New York City attorney and businessman, Levison is, in fact, a shrewd, dedicated communist. Levison has spent the major part of his life advancing communist interests.
The next two paragraphs explained how Comrade Levison helped MLK with finances, speeches, and public appearances. Moreover, he ghost-wrote some of MLK’s material. However, Comrade Levison didn’t think too much about his figurehead’s overall faculties:
Stanley Levison has told Clarence Jones, another advisor to King, that under no circumstances should King be permitted to say anything without their approving it. Levison also informed Jones that King is such a slow thinker he is usually not prepared to make statements without help from someone.
The document describes numerous other radicalinski connections. Deplorable Diatribes recaps the following commentary about all that:
A previous surveillance effort, codename “SOLO”, discovered that Levison moved Soviet money into the CPUSA’s coffers. (I’ll add that obviously he must’ve been a very trusted apparatchik to handle this illegal money laundering.) The document further names several other Communist connections.
JFK and many others tried to convince MLK to purge the pinkos. The President agreed wholeheartedly with civil rights, but Communist involvement led to strained relations with the Kennedy administration. (It’s understandable; there was a Cold War going on, which almost went nuclear not long before.) After repeated pressure, King reluctantly made some token moves to distance himself, but he duplicitously maintained connections with them. That included characters like his consigliere Comrade Levison, who was King’s top advisor, financial consultant, and ghostwriter for several of his speeches.
I’ll further add that Vasili Mitrokhin’s The Sword and the Shield provides an interesting counterpoint to this dialogue. From the KGB’s perspective, it turns out that Levison’s influence certainly was there, but they considered it inadequate. Other than that, the FBI document later goes in depth on MLK’s shift in position on Vietnam under the influence of a couple of his Red advisors, which was a subject that formerly didn’t interest him much. Maybe the KGB spooks were being entirely too particular.
MLK in bed with capitalist running dogs
Later in the document, his major sources of donations are described, an interesting litany of woke capital. One contributor was the precursor to Merrill-Lynch. Limousine leftists are nothing new, right? Then $6K – which was a nice chunk of change in 1960s dollars – was kicked in by the Edward Lamb Foundation. (Tell me about the lambs, Clarice…) Then this:
It was learned in November, 1967, that the Ford Foundation was about to give SCLC $230,000. This money was to train Negro ministers in 25 cities throughout the Nation to become qualified leaders in the ghetto areas.
That’s about $1.76 million in today’s currency. Looks like the Ford Foundation doesn’t have any problem with mixing religion and politics! How many “community organizers” do you think they trained up with that kind of swag? Moreover, I wonder what Henry Ford would’ve thought about the foundation he created being converged and used to support leftist causes?
Then it says Nelson Rockefeller chipped in $25K. (That’s worth $191K now, but was pocket change to that trust fund kid turned politician.) It names a couple of other celebrities. Rather surprisingly, a couple of government agencies contracted with MLK’s SCLC. Back in the day, this detail might have given a few bureaucrats a case of indigestion if they were called out for it.
MLK in bed with skanks
So what happened with all that moolah? The FBI document states:
With the funds that he had received from the Ford Foundation, King held the first of two workshops in Miami, Florida, in February, 1968, to train Negro ministers in urban leadership. One Negro minister in attendance later expressed his disgust with the behind-the-scene drinking, fornication, and homosexuality that went on at the conference. Several Negro and white prostitutes were brought in from the Miami area. An all-night sex orgy was held with these prostitutes and some of the delegates in attendance.
One room had a large table in it which was filled with whiskey. The two Negro prostitutes were paid $50.00 to put on a sex show for the entertainment of guests. A variety of sex acts deviating from the normal were observed.
Precious, isn’t it? The rest of the document discusses the Moral Giant’s personal conduct. Reading what this phony preacher had been up to makes me a bit nostalgic for Bill Clinton. For example:
This activity is not new to King and his associates. As early as January, 1965, King engaged in another, two-day, drunken sex orgy in Washington, D. C. Many of those present engaged in sexual acts, natural as well as unnatural, for the entertainment of onlookers. When one of the females shied away from engaging in an unnatural act, King and other of the males present discussed how she was to be taught and initiated in this respect.
These days, something like that would get someone #MeTooed to hell and gone, even if all this went down in the 1960s. That shit didn’t fly even back then. However, for people who are high enough up on the food chain, another set of rules applies to them, much more lenient than the rules applying to peasants like us. That’s the same reason why Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein got away with what they did for as long as they did.
There’s more to it, but for all the details, you’ll just have to read the report.
To make way for the MLK holiday, Washington’s and Lincoln’s birthdays got collapsed into Presidents Day, when you also can honor the immortal legacy of Millard Fillmore and Jimmy Carter. Therefore, MLK now remains the only other man individually honored with a federal holiday other than Jesus Christ. Actually, it’s not hard to guess which of the two the average liberal holds in higher esteem.
Therefore, MLK must be pretty important, right? Learn more about the Saint Who Ain’t at:
