Martin Luther King Jr.
Thoughts on MLK and his contributions to America and the world... both good and bad.
~ Aristotle Sabouni
The Road to Understanding
MLK Communism[edit source]
|King avoided labelling himself a communist in public, but readily described himself as a Marxist in private. Plus his upper echelon was quite cozy with the communists. That's why the FBI started taping/monitoring him as a subversive element and a threat: because parts of his beliefs were just that.
So while the blacks and hippies all discounted the claims that he was a communist and claim he was just being watched because whitey didn't like his stance on civil rights, the truth is they had bigger concerns about him being a Communist sowing discord, and if he wasn't outright collaborating (which some of his lieutenants were), his philandering and hypocrisy did make him an easy blackmail threat to the communists.
MLK Philanderings[edit source]
|Secret FBI recordings accuse Martin Luther King Jr of watching and laughing as a pastor raped a woman, having 40 extramarital affairs. There's a real irony that the far left would giggle at any hint that a white pastor is a hypocrite because of their disliking organized religion or the conservative nature putting constraints on hedonism (which the left sometimes confuses with liberalism) -- but a black pastor caught in the act must be ignored because intersectional marxism and victimhood says that blacks can't be held responsible for their own actions. (Or something like that).|
MLK Plagiarism[edit source]
|King started plagiarizing the work of others and he continued this practice throughout his career. This isn't just sharing and quoting for others, this was lifting verbatim and without acknowledgement and taking credit for their work in his school papers, on to his speeches. Even his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech borrowed sections from a 1952 address to the Republican National Convention (by black preacher Archibald Carey). His test scores backed up that he was in the bottom in literary accademics.|
MLK's assassination and memory[edit source]
MLKs dream[edit source]
Martin Luther King had a dream that he shared with all of us. And Americans embraced it. Democrats and Marxists perverted it for political gains. The dream has become a nightmare of conflicting grievances and bigotries, all attacking each other. It will never succeed unless Americans reject the faux purity standards of the racist far left, and embrace the reality that America is not homogenous, and never should be. There's no consistency that anyone will be discriminated against by everyone or everywhere the same based on the slant of their eye or skin tone. There are assholes and good people everywhere. And you can't make the world a better place by making racial quotas to fix injustice -- because the sum of a person's experiences and suffering is a lot greater than their skin tone, but their total experiences. And trying to boil a person's total experiences down to their skin color, is as racist and antithetical to MLK's dream as it gets.

|The other side|
|This is a Toastmasters Speech I did on "the road to understanding", and thinking about the “other side” of Gandhi, MLK and Tankman. Who are the real heroes? Life and people are more complex than we are usually taught. And we owe it to everyone (and ourselves) not to just be shallow cheerleaders of caricatures and idols.|
Conclusion[edit | edit source]
A friend pointed out that we would be living in a different America if we had not lost Dr. King...
- (a) that's true about just about anyone
- (b) "Maybe not for the better"
Look, MLK plagiarized and gave a brilliant speech or three. And his causes were just, and his actions commendable (far better than the Malcom X type stuff). So I am somewhat a fan, and am not trying to pee in anyone's punchbowl, nor mock their heroes. There are far, far less worthy celebrities. So he's not a Che Guevara or unworthy type. But we need to watch the deification of people. Even people that had positive impact on many lives. And I'm also one that focuses on the counter-balances or things not discussed.
So I went on to mention the following points:
- remember, King was a philanderer that was surrounded by Marxists and started talking about reparations
- one of the best things you can do (for your reputation) is take an assassins bullet before the truth/scandals come out
Do you think we'd be a better world if King was disgraced as a hypocrite, or if he had to keep creating "the next big thing" to be like a Jesse Jackson (and become an attention whore)? What if he kept devolving into more and more leftist divisive/Marxist rhetoric? We have no way to know which way his life would have gone from there, and whether he would have pulled out from his trajectory, but there were at least a few indicators that it was heading towards a darker direction.
So while I respect his accomplishments, and forgive his sins, that's easier to do when he took a bullet near his peak, not nearer his valley.
He might have done great things, and still be the voice of reason. He might have also devolved and been tainted by scandal and his need for attention. But I find either, equally plausible. So from doing the most for the world, he might have died at the exact right time. We just don't know.
