For the past thirty-five years (officially since 1986) the third Monday in January has been celebrated as a federal holiday, Martin Luther King Day. Federal and state offices and many businesses either close or go on limited schedules. We are awash with public observances, parades, prayer breakfasts, stepped-up school projects for our unwary and intellectually-abused children, and gobs and gobs of over-the-top television “specials” and movies, all geared to tell us—to shout it in our faces, if we don’t pay strict attention—that King was some sort of superhuman, semi-divine civil rights leader who brought the promise of equality to millions of Americans, a kind of modern St. John the Baptist ushering in the Millenium. And that he stands just below Jesus Christ in the pantheon of revered and adored historical personages…and in some ways, perhaps above Jesus Christ in the minds of many of his present-day devotees and epigones.

It seems to do no good to issue a demurrer to this veritable religious “cult of Dr. King.” There are, indeed, numerous “Christian” churches that now “celebrate” this day just as if it were a major feast in the Christian calendar. In short, Martin Luther King has received de facto canonization religiously and in the public mind as no other person in American history.

ORDER IT NOW

Mention the fact that King may have plagiarized as much as 40 % of his Boston University Ph.D. dissertation [cf. Theodore Pappas, Plagiarism and the Culture War: The Writings of Martin Luther King, Jr, and Other Prominent Americans, 1998 and Martin Luther King Jr Plagiarism Story, 1994], or that he worked closely with known Communists throughout his life, or that he advocated American defeat in Vietnam while praising Ho Chi Minh, or that he implicitly countenanced violence and Marxism, especially later in his life [cf., Congressional Record, 129, no. 130 (October 3, 1983): S13452-S13461]—mention any of these accusations confirmed begrudgingly by his establishment biographers David Garrow and Taylor Branch, or mention his even-by-current-standards violent “rough sex” escapades (which apparently involved even under-agers) [cf., Cooper Sterling, January 13, 2018, at: http://www.vdare.com/articles/fake-news-washington-post-evades-martin-luther-kings-communist-links?content=for%20Church%20Ministers.%E2%80%9D ]—and you immediately get labeled a “racist” and condemned by not just the zealous King flame-keepers on the Left, but by such “racially acceptable” Neoconservatives like James Kirchick and Dinesh D’Souza who supposedly are on the Right.

ORDER IT NOW

Indeed, in some ways Establishment “conservatives” such as Jonah Goldberg, Rich Lowry (National Review), D’Souza, Glenn Beck, the talking heads on Fox and the furious scribblers at The Weekly Standard, and many others, not only eagerly buy into this narrative, they now have converted King into a full-fledged, card-carrying member of “Conservatism Inc.”—the (contemporary) “conservative movement,” a “plaster saint” iconized as literally no one else in our history.

Celebrating King becomes a means for these ersatz conservatives to demonstrate their “civil rights” and “egalitarian” bona fides. The Neocons, with their philosophical and ideological origins over on the Trotskyite Left of the 1930s and 1940s, when they made their pilgrimage towards conservatism in the 1960s and 1970s brought with them a fervent believe in a globalist New World Order egalitarianism that characterized Trotskyite Marxist ideology, and the determination to redefine and re-orient the traditional American Rightwing, and to re-write, as well, American history.

Thus, the purges of the old conservative movement in the 1980s and 1990s—there was no room for Southern conservatives like Mel Bradford, no room for traditionalist Catholics like Frederick Wilhelmsen or Brent Bozell Sr., no room for paleo-libertarians like Murray Rothbard, no room for Old Right anti-egalitarians like Paul Gottfried, and no room for “America Firsters” like Pat Buchanan…And those traditional conservatives who were too significant in the “pantheon of greats,” like a Russell Kirk, they attempted to simply whitewash and give them new, cleaned up images and identities (part and parcel of their “rewriting” of conservatism). Thus, Kirk’s opposition to the civil rights bills of the 1960s and 1970s, his staunch arguments against egalitarianism, his willingness to debate cognitive disparities between the races (publishing, for example, reviews of Dr. Audrey M. Shuey’s study, The Testing of Negro Intelligence, in his publication, The University Bookman—I know, as I was there in Mecosta when it happened) are all swept under the carpet or carefully ignored.

In this, in fact, the dominant Neocons have joined with their cousins on the “farther Left,” to the point that Bush consultant guru and Fox pundit, Karl Rove, could boast that hardcore Marxist/Communist historian Eric Foner (who lamented the collapse of Soviet Communism) was his favorite historian (when examining Reconstruction) [See Dr. Paul Gottfried’s incisive critique of Foner and those “conservatives” who have praised him, “Guilt Trip,” The American Conservative,” May 4, 2009, pp. 21-23].

King Day has become, then, for the Conservative Movement an opportunity for it to beat its chest, brag about its commitment to civil rights and the American “dream”, the unrealized idea of equality (that is, to distort and re-write the history of the American Founding), and to protect its left flank against the ever increasing charges that it could be, just might be, maybe is—“racist.”

And for the “farther Left,” that catapulting cultural Marxist juggernaut that continues to move the societal and political goalposts to the Left, King Day becomes as a major ideological blitzkrieg, a weaponized cudgel used to strike down and silence anyone, anywhere, who might offer the slightest dissent to the latest barbarity and latest “advance” in civil rights, now expanded to include not just everything “racial,” but also same sex marriage, transgenderism and abortion on demand. Martin Luther King–that deeply and irredeemably flawed and fraudulent figure imposed upon us and our consciousness—has become an icon, a totem, who serves in martyred death the purposes of continuing Revolution.

The heavily-documented literature detailing the real Martin Luther King is abundant and remains uncontroverted and basically uncontested. During the debates over establishing a national “King Day” in the mid-1980s, Senators Jesse Helms and John East (both North Carolinians) led the opposition, supplying the Congress and the nation, and anyone with eyes to read, full accounts of the “King legacy,” from his close association and collaboration with the Communist Party USA to his advocacy of violence and support for the Communists in North Vietnam, to implicit support for Marxist revolution domestically. Ironically, it was Robert Woodson, a noted black Republican, who highlightedin a lecture given to honor the “conservative virtues of Dr. Martin Luther King” at the Heritage Foundation on November 5, 1993, the difficulties in getting black advocates of the older generation to respect King’s role as a Civil Rights leader. According to Woodson, as quoted in an excellent essay by Paul Gottfried,

“when Dr. King tried to bring the Civil Rights movement together with the [Marxist] peace movement, it was Carl Rowan who characterized King as a Communist, not Ronald Reagan. I remember being on the dais of the NAACP banquet in Darby, Pennsylvania when Roy Wilkins soundly castigated King for this position.” [Paul Gottfried, “The Cult of St. Martin Luther King – A Loyalty Test for Careerist Conservatives?” January 16, 2012, at: http://www.vdare.com/articles/the-cult-of-st-martin-luther-king-a-loyalty-test-for-careerist-conservatives ] (emphasis added)

But not only that, behind the scenes there were voluminous secretly-made FBI recordings and accounts of King’s violent sexual escapades, often times with more than two or three others involved in such “rough sex” trysts; and of his near total hypocrisy when discussing civil rights and other prominent civil rights leaders. It is, to put it mildly, a sorry record, scandalous even by today’s standards…Indeed, King makes Harvey Weinstein look like a meek choirboy in comparison.

But you won’t hear any of that mentioned by the falling-all-over-itself Mainstream Media or the media mavens on Fox. In fact, such comments will get you exiled to the far reaches of the Gobi Desert and labeled a “racist,” quicker that my cocker spaniel gobbles down his kibble.

Rather than rehash and restate all the various accusations, backed up with substantial and overwhelming documentation, let me offer something of an annotated bibliography and history of MLK Day. Almost all the material is now available and accessible online, including material from the Congressional Record.

First, essential to understanding the background of just how we got King Day, the late Dr. Samuel Francis’s account is critical. Originally written to preface the publication of voluminous testimony and documentation placed in the Congressional Record by Senator Helms, Francis’s essay and the Helms’ dossier were eventually published in book form (I have a published copy, but I’m unsure if you can still find it on Amazon). A few years back Dr. Francis’s introduction and his detailed background essay and the lengthy Congressional Record material (which he prepared for Helms) were put online. For a complete understanding of King’s association and cooperation with American Communists and his endorsement of Vietnamese Communism, as well as his putative endorsement of Marxism here in the United States while condemning the free enterprise system, these two items are essential reading:

Dr. Samuel Francis, “The King Holiday and Its Meaning,” February 26, 2015, at: http://www.vdare.com/articles/the-king-holiday-and-its-meaning-0

Dr. Samuel Francis, “Remarks of Senator Jesse Helms. Congressional Quarterly,” February 26, 2005, at: http://www.vdare.com/articles/helms-jesse-remarks-of-senator-jesse-helms-congressional-quarterly-0

To fully understand the serious plagiarism charges leveled against King and the academic and politically-correct skullduggery that surrounded Boston University’s decision not to rescind his doctoral degree, Theodore Pappas’s two detailed studies, cited above, offer fascinating and scandalously revealing details. But other writers, also, upon cursory examination, have found numerous other instances of his plagiarism.

Remember the “I Have a Dream” speech? Well, as Jim Goad wrote in Takimag back in 2012:

“…the immortalized in MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech in the part where he beseeches God…to “Let freedom ring from the Stone Mountain of Georgia.” King stole that passage about Stone Mountain from a 1952 oratory delivered by another black preacher at the Republican National Convention. He also allegedly plagiarized parts of the first public sermon he ever delivered back in 1947.” [Jim Goad, “I’m So Bored with MLK,” Takimag,January 16, 2012, at: http://takimag.com/article/im_so_bored_with_mlk#axzz54AHOhapO ]

But, say the Neocon scribblers at National Review and the pundits on Fox, wasn’t King really a conservative at heart, an old-fashioned black Baptist who believed in the tenets of traditional Christianity? Shouldn’t we simply overlook these all-too-human foibles?

To answer that Dr. Jack Kerwick penned an essay several years ago that addresses these futile attempts to sanitize and “conservatize” King on the part of “conservatism inc.,” in its efforts to shore up its leftward flank and, through sanctifying him, to defend the template of egalitarianism as central to the American Founding.

I take the liberty of quoting Kerwick at length:

In honor of African-American History month, let’s take a quiz. In each of the following statements, a famous African-American is quoted. Identify that person among these answer choices: (a) Jesse Jackson; (b) Jeremiah Wright; (c) Al Sharpton; (d) Louis Farrakhan; (e)Barack Hussein Obama; and (f) Martin Luther King, Jr.

(1)George Washington was undoubtedly valorous. “But to the end of his days he maintained a posture of exclusionism toward the slave,” and he “was a fourth-generation slaveholder.” Washington “only allowed” blacks “to enter the Continental Army because His Majesty’s Crown was attempting to recruit” blacks “to the British Cause.”

(2)The black American is “the child of two cultures—Africa and America. The problem is that in the search for wholeness all too many” blacks “seek to embrace only one side of their natures.” Blacks in America are “Afro-American [.]”

(3) “Colonialism could not have been perpetuated if the Christian Church had really taken a stand against it.” For example, “the vicious system of apartheid in South Africa” had among “its chief defenders…the Dutch Reformed Protestant Church.”

(4) “If the Church does not participate actively in the struggle for peace and for economic and racial justice” future generations will look back upon it as “one of the greatest bulwarks of white supremacy.”

(5) President Lyndon Banes Johnson had a “comprehensive grasp” of the problems of poverty and civil rights that he faced. He had “sincerity,” “realism,” and “wisdom” in how he approached them.

(6) Blacks, like everyone else, have “a right to expect the resources of the American trade union movement to be used in assuring” them “of a proper place in American society.” Young blacks especially “need to think of union careers as earnestly as they do of business careers and professions.”

(7) America maintains “a continued alliance…with racism and exploitation throughout the world.”

(8) Both Marxism and “traditional capitalism” are partially true and partially false. The former may fail to “see the truth in individual enterprise,” but the latter fails to “see the truth in collective enterprise.”

(9) Communism was “a judgment on” the “failure” of “Western nations…to make democracy real and to follow through on the revolutions that we initiated.”

(10) The “potential explosiveness of our world situation is much more attributable [than anything else] to disillusionment with promises of Christianity and technology.”

(11) America “is still behind European nations in all forms of social legislation.”

(12) “Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people [the American Indian] of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.”

(13) “The misery of the poor in Africa and Asia” is the “result of years of [Western] exploitation and underdevelopment.”

(14) “We in the West must bear in mind that the poor countries are poor primarily because we have exploited them through political or economic colonialism. Americans in particular must help their nation repent of her modern economic imperialism.”

(15) If there is to be “peace on earth,” people’s “loyalties must transcend” not only “race,” “tribe,” and “class,” but “nation.” This “means [that] we must develop a world perspective.”

(16) “There is nothing new about poverty. What is new, however, is that we now have the resources to get rid of it.” What this implies is that the time is now “for an all-out world war against poverty. The rich nations must use their vast resources of wealth to develop the underdeveloped, school the unschooled, and feed the unfed.”

(17) The United Nations is to be applauded, for it is the product of “the fear of war.”

(18) Since “the destructive power of modern weapons eliminates even the possibility that war may serve as a negative good,” those “who sincerely feel that disarmament is an evil and international negotiation is an abominable waste of time” are sorely mistaken.

(19) “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

(20) America “must not only radically readjust its attitude toward” blacks; it “must incorporate in its planning some compensatory compensation [“Affirmative Action”] from the handicaps [blacks] inherited from the past.”

(21) What’s necessary for combating poverty is “a broad-based and gigantic Bill of Rights for the Disadvantaged, our veterans of the long siege of denial.”

(22) Because America was “born in genocide,” “racial hatred,” and “racial supremacy,” nothing less than “a reconstruction of the entire society, a revolution of values” is demanded. After all, “a nation that put as many Japanese in a concentration camp as” America did during World War II will think nothing of putting “black people in a concentration camp” as well.

(23) America needs a “revolution of values”—i.e. “socialism.”

(24) The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were “at best surface changes.” Only a “redistribution of economic power” could rectify the injustices inherent in “the system” of “capitalism.”

(25) The Vietnam War was “senseless,” “unjust,” and “racist [.]” In truth, it is America that is “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today [.]”

*Bonus Question: Which of the foregoing famous African-Americans said this about Ronald Reagan?

That a one-time “Hollywood performer” who lacked “distinction even as an actor” could “become a leading war hawk candidate for the presidency” had to have been due to a most “melancholy turn of events [.]” In fact, “only the irrationalities induced by a war psychosis” could explain it.

If you selected “(f),” Martin Luther King, Jr., as your answer to ALL these questions, then you achieved a perfect score! That’s right: Though some word tenses were changed so as not to date the quotation in question and give away the answer, the hard truth of the matter is that, contrary to what contemporary “conservative” commentators [in the GOP and on Fox News] would have you believe, King was obviously about as much of a conservative, to say nothing of a “Reagan conservative,” as any of the other famous black Americans mentioned at the beginning of this article. His statements, in fact, reveal a man of the hard left, and certainly to the left of Barack Obama. “The truth,” as Friedrich Nietzsche so simply, yet powerfully, put it, “is hard.” [Dr. Jack Kerwick, February 2015, http://www.beliefnet.com/columnists/attheintersectionoffaithandculture/2015/02/a-pop-quiz-for-african-american-history-month.html]

Finally, I should also mention Peter Brimelow’s superb essay that offers additional insight on the King Day holiday and which summarizes much of the information, ideological uses, and controversy surrounding the day. It was originally published in 2015, but he has republished it each year to coincide with this annual national paroxysm: “ ‘Time To Rethink Martin Luther King Day’–The 2017 Edition,” at: http://www.vdare.com/articles/time-to-rethink-martin-luther-king-day-the-2017-edition ]

I can think of no better summation of the real meaning of King Day and its bare-knuckled ideological use to deconstruct, dissolve and obliterate American traditions and heritage than to cite, again, Sam Francis:

“[T]he true meaning of the holiday is that it serves to legitimize the radical social and political agenda that King himself favored and to delegitimize traditional American social and cultural institutions—not simply those that supported racial segregation but also those that support a free market economy, an anti-communist foreign policy, and a constitutional system that restrains the power of the state rather than one that centralizes and expands power for the reconstruction of society and the redistribution of wealth. In this sense, the campaign to enact the legal public holiday in honor of Martin Luther King was a small first step on the long march to revolution, a charter by which that revolution is justified as the true and ultimate meaning of the American identity. In this sense, and also in King’s own sense, as he defined it in his speech at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963, the Declaration of Independence becomes a “promissory note” by which the state is authorized to pursue social and economic egalitarianism as its mission, and all institutions and values that fail to reflect the dominance of equality—racial, cultural, national, economic, political, and social—must be overcome and discarded.

“By placing King—and therefore his own radical ideology of social transformation and reconstruction—into the central pantheon of American history, the King holiday provides a green light by which the revolutionary process of transformation and reconstruction can charge full speed ahead. Moreover, by placing King at the center of the American national pantheon, the holiday also serves to undermine any argument against the revolutionary political agenda that it has come to symbolize. Having promoted or accepted the symbol of the new dogma as a defining—perhaps the defining—icon of the American political order, those who oppose the revolutionary agenda the symbol represents have little ground to resist that agenda.” [January 16, 2006, at: https://majorityrights.com/weblog/comments/samuel_francis_on_martin_luther_king_jr_day]

I will not be celebrating this day; rather, it is for me a mournful reminder of what has happened and is happening to this country.

    Like any of it is your country to begin with. America has owners, and “you” are merely property of it. The rest of your crap reads like whinny ass tabloid.

    If King were alive today the government would shoot him again, and re-write his history Again! See how it works.

    What a load of crap. King was a threat to the establishment of his time, and that exact same establishment is still in power today. Nothing has changed, and if King were around today they would shoot him again. And re-write his history again – which has been done in favor of the establishment in power.

    By 1968, King was on the way out as a national figure. He was no threat to the establishment.

    In any event, the Civil Rights revolution was imposed from the top down and would have occurred if King had never lived.

  16. Excellent work, Boyd. Much of what you point out about King’s coronation also applies to the icon of the GOP, Abraham Lincoln. In fact, King’s position in the pantheon, which you described thus:

    “And that he stands just below Jesus Christ in the pantheon of revered and adored historical personages…and in some ways, perhaps above Jesus Christ in the minds of many of his present-day devotees and epigones.” is more properly assigned as being just below Lincoln, who has been assigned the place of Jesus by the Lincoln cultists.

    Let’s not forget Lincoln’s adulation of the ’48ers and his appointment of officers from that attempted revolution in Europe to his officer staff. Lincoln worship came long before the inclusion of King by the GOP, and has always been a leftist phenomenon in the GOP.

    The leftists who “hijacked” the GOP could have made no progress if not for the existence of the GOP’s longstanding history of leftism, which is evident in their worship of Lincoln. Both leftist saints, Lincoln and King, in the political pantheon are deemed unimpeachable holy men by both parties.

    "But Abraham Lincoln is not, and nor was his Administration, any model for what today seems so objectionable in the modern welfare state. His unwavering commitment to natural rights and the Constitution’s framework of limited government, as well as the comparatively limited forces he called into the defense of the nation during the Civil War, not only place him in philosophical opposition to the Left, but dispel any notions that he set the stage for the expansion of government in the 20th century."

  17. The left in the USA are like the Nazis. They must never be appeased, as they were with this holiday; to quote Churchill,

    “We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: It is to wage war, by sea, land, and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be.”

    It is not enough to contain the left or roll back their progressions … they must be utterly defeated.

    And that he [MLK] stands just below Jesus Christ in the pantheon of revered and adored historical personages…and in some ways, perhaps above Jesus Christ in the minds of many of his present-day devotees and epigones…Mention the fact that King may have plagiarized as much as 40 % of his Boston University Ph.D. dissertation…and you immediately get labeled a “racist”…

    dote: to bestow or express excessive love or fondness habitually

    The over the top fawning behaviour described by the writer and that Martin Luther King attended Boston University where he was awarded a doctorate based upon what even at the time (1955) may well have been suspected to be a plagiarism riddled dissertation is an example of the chattel slave days cynical and self serving ‘doting’ of slave masters upon their African slaves with the ostentatiously presented occasional small gift, etc., carried over into modern times. The same overweening display of doting writ large can be seen regarding the wage slave immigrants (ie ‘cheap labor’ so called) and the development of the ‘sanctuary city’, and now even ‘sanctuary state’, but now using other people’s money with much larger gifts to give to those the former would be slave owners/dealers prey upon and exploit as wage slaves…though this put in place by diktat monetized chattel slavery (wage slavery) is very destructive to the vast majority of the public and is decidedly not in their interest, just as with chattel slavery.

    Much of the modern ‘liberal’ and the phenomena of the ‘social justice warrior’ present within the wage slavery based multicultural society almost certainly have their parallel in the chattel slavery based British colonial North America, particularly of the largely Puritan northeast. These were the all too many of the non-slave owning everyday Puritan citizenry whom would observe the slave owners ‘doting’ upon their African slaves, naively deem it ‘goodly’, internalize it, and would then go on to do some of their own ‘doting’ upon these unfortunate persons. This would thus have the effect of enabling the no doubt quietly approving slave owners and dealers, though like the vast majority of colonists these copycat doters probably didn’t own slaves themselves; chattel slavery was a practice put in place by diktat that was decidedly not in most colonists interest, which indeed they had to rather suffer from, slavery quite correctly being called historically ‘a scourge upon mankind’. This ‘doting’ upon their slaves by the slave owners (and by non-slave-owners) of course did nothing to truly help the slave, or ameliorate the evil of it, as it was in reality all about the slave owners themselves attempting to rather pathetically improve their self worth in both their own eyes and the eyes of others. Of course, too, there is the cynical truism that the happy slave makes for the harder working slave, and the harder working slave makes for the more profitable slave. When one of their non slaving owning fellow colonial Puritan citizens, all too few brave enough to speak out no doubt, perhaps wisely recalling the Spartacus led slave revolt which came close to gutting the core of the Roman republic and bringing with it the downfall of the Empire, might have suggested that perhaps this chattel slavery thing was not such a good idea and should be put a stop to, these naive non slave owning primordial sjws acting on their Puritanical zeal and fanaticism, and their heavy emotional attachment to this ‘doting’, likely would have shouted them down and perhaps even attempted to physically assault the said person for daring to have said such a thing, misguidingly perceiving it as an attack on both themselves and those that they dote upon.

    There is the parallel today with much of modern liberalism and the ‘doting’ upon the wage slave immigrants (‘cheap labor’ so called) by those whom exploit them, ie every thing from large corporations to the family across the street whom pay the immigrant significantly below what was or would be the local cost of labor, ie a prevailing wage, were the immigration not taking place. It is this historical refusal by some, driven by short sighted financial interest, to pay the local prevailing cost of labor (aka ‘a living wage’) typically to one of their own that drives someone to import a chattel slave. It is this same short sighted financial rational, ie plain greed, which drives the importation of immigrants today. And just as with those Puritans whom internalized the doting upon the slaves by slave owners, thus enabling slave owners and dealers, though chattel slavery was in no way in their interest, you have the same with many a modern liberal, and their internalized doting upon the wage slaves, thus enabling the elites of large corporations and their hangers on in this modern genocidal slave trade, though it too is in no way in most of their, or anyone else’s, interests.

    My suspicion is that it was the persons heavily involved in the marketing and merchandising of chattel slaves (the dealers in London and in British colonial North America, Boston…ie powerful elements of the elites of the Anglo-Saxon and Jewish people) who grasped during the latter 18th century that the monetization of chattel slavery and its trade (wage slavery, ie ‘cheap labor’ so called) was a far more profitable and efficient way to go about systematically stealing an individual’s labor, and it was these chattel slave marketers who gave the impetus and likely financing to the ‘Abolition movement’ which did not in reality abolish truly ghastly slavery but rather merely smoothed the way for chattel slavery’s monetization and the introduction of the more virulent and destructive wage slavery system to the world, much in the same way that a deadly cancer metastasizes and then proceeds to spread throughout the body.

    ‘The [African] slaves in Massachusetts were treated with almost parental kindness. They were incorporated into the family…’

    As the reality of slavery in the North faded, and a strident anti-Southern abolitionism arose there, the memory of Northern slaves, when it surfaced at all, tended to focus on how happy and well-treated they had been, in terms much reminiscent of the so-called “Lost Cause” literature that followed the fall of the Confederacy in 1865.

    “The slaves in Massachusetts were treated with almost parental kindness. They were incorporated into the family, and each puritan household being a sort of religious structure, the relative duties of master and servant were clearly defined. No doubt the severest and longest task fell to the slave, but in the household of the farmer or artisan, the master and the mistress shared it, and when it was finished, the white and the black, like the feudal chief and his household servant, sat down to the same table, and shared the same viands.” [Reminiscence by Catharine Sedgwick (1789-1867) of Stockbridge, Mass.]

    Yet the petitions for freedom from New England and Mid-Atlantic blacks, and the numbers in which they ran off from their masters to the British during the Revolution, suggest rather a different picture.

    Early 19th century New Englanders had real motives for forgetting their slave history, or, if they recalled it at all, for characterizing it as a brief period of mild servitude. This was partly a Puritan effort to absolve New England’s ancestors of their guilt…

    Yes, they had chattel slaves in places such as Massachusetts, not only owning them themselves but more or less ‘running the show’ there regarding the slave trade in British colonial North America. In doing so the slave owners and dealers acting by diktat displayed a callous disregard towards their fellow man, both towards their own non-slave owning/non-slave dealing people, ie the vast majority, and the Africans whom they exploited or sold as chattel slaves.

    When the minutemen marched off to face the redcoats at Lexington [Mass] in 1775, the wives, boys and old men they left behind in Framingham took up axes, clubs, and pitchforks and barred themselves in their homes because of a widespread, and widely credited, rumor that the local slaves planned to rise up and massacre the white inhabitants while the militia was away.

    In Connecticut in the 1950s, when I was growing up, the only slavery discussed in my history textbook was southern; New Englanders had marched south to end slavery. It was in Rhode Island, where I lived after 1964, that I first stumbled across an obscure reference to local slavery, but almost no one I asked knew anything about it…

  28. Great exposition of Martin Luther Coon. Now, how does one combat this “man-made religion” of Lincoln & King? You have to put something/someone else in their place to fill that vacuum. My contention is that if Christ is not the replacement then you will never get sanity back. Everyone knows that any Civil or Revolutionary war that would occur on American soil in 2018 wouldn’t wind down until millions were dead. At that point the Constitution/Bill of Rights would be permanently decommissioned and the country would be easy pickings for the UN/Russia/China to take over and shelve the USA for good.

    So, my question would be do Whites really want Christ to be front and center of the culture? Isn’t incest lover Charlie Darwin the go to guy for all behaviors prohibited by the Bible? Hasn’t Christ been relegated to a porch nigger whose only there to give out the goodies and alleviate the fallout from ones sins, then like a good dog go back into the obscurity corner until called for? If Christ’s gonna interfere with one getting paid (job) and getting laid (desirable spouse); as both Christ, the Apostles and early Christians for about four centuries died essentially broke with bottom of the barrel looking spouses–as the rich and socially influential pagans were living large–shouldn’t ALL Christianity be abolished along with the blacks from the shores of Pragmatic America? Isn’t Materialism the King of Kings for the West today? If it interferes with folks getting their fuck on, shouldn’t it be exterminated? Hook up culture? No fault divorce? Pornography? Aren’t these behaviors to be desired if they are the fruit of a secular religion that’s replaced that LGBT phobic Christ?

    What’s the new religion to take root into the hearts of men if there is no personal Creator whom all are accountable to?

    What a load of crap. King was a threat to the establishment of his time, and that exact same establishment is still in power today. Nothing has changed, and if King were around today they would shoot him again. And re-write his history again - which has been done in favor of the establishment in power.

    The wealth has been redistributed - sorry if you missed out.

    By 1968, King was on the way out as a national figure. He was no threat to the establishment.

    “Thus, the purges of the old conservative movement in the 1980s and 1990s—there was no room for Southern conservatives like Mel Bradford, no room for traditionalist Catholics like Frederick Wilhelmsen or Brent Bozell Sr., no room for paleo-libertarians like Murray Rothbard, no room for Old Right anti-egalitarians like Paul Gottfried, and no room for “America Firsters” like Pat Buchanan…”

    Every man noted above has a great deal to say about how this country went so wrong, things that no ‘mainstream conservative’ today can say and be allowed to keep his status. None of them was/is naive; each sees the rot as very old, dating back to the nation’s desire to destroy imperial Spain to replace it with imperial America, or farther back, to Lincoln and the original Republican Party, or even farther back, to at least the 1830s when the northeastern WASP Elites began producing radical groups by the dozens and rhetoric marking their desire to force the rest of the country to support their notions of ‘Progress.’

It still is today and even greater at it. Look at the entire middle east from Libya to Afghanistan, even branching out to Ukraine.

    You are absolutely right. Lewis Farrakhan is one of the few Blacks (although he himself is not black) with nerve enough to publically state that Jews have manipulated and used Blacks to achieve their goal of ruling the American people via a myriad of civil rights laws, that in effect nullify natural laws on which Western civilization rest.

  41. It’s good to see that some of the commenters here really get it. King was just a front man, a spokesman, for the same globalist elites (the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, et al.) who control anything of importance in this country. Desegregation was imposed from the top down; it was not the result of some spontaneous movement that originated with the blacks. Indeed, in those days, there were a significant number of blacks in the US that didn’t even want desegregation. Many of them were followers of Marcus Garvey. Also note that as early as 1948–several years before anyone outside of Atlanta had ever even heard of MLK–Hubert Humphrey (a well-known establishment tool) was already publicly calling for an end to segregation at the Democratic Party convention that year. And note that the Brown decision (arguably our first major case of judicial fiat) predated the much celebrated Rosa Parks incident that first launched King. In sum: King did not create the black rights movement.

    King was no front man. That is Fake News.

Do you not have a duty to free them? What has been or is going to be your course of action?

    No, but King helped to nationalize the cause. Furthermore, the Brown decision had been built upon two previous cases that dealt with segregation and college programs. Would you want to know more, citizen?

    You are right except that the elites themselves funded Communism. The best option would be complete separation of the races into different countries both within the USA as well as South Africa. But in both countries, the elites would never allow it as their divide and rule strategy would not work in racially homogeneous nations. Apartheid South Africa was ready to give blacks their own homelands like Swaziland and Botswana, but the Globalist elites would not have any of it. Like Bophuthatswana, which had platinum mines, which accounted for two-thirds of the total platinum production in the Western world. It was also rich in asbestos, granite, vanadium, chromium and manganese. But neither the U.N. nor any government outside of South Africa would recognize it.

    Excellent work, Boyd. Much of what you point out about King's coronation also applies to the icon of the GOP, Abraham Lincoln. In fact, King's position in the pantheon, which you described thus:

    "And that he stands just below Jesus Christ in the pantheon of revered and adored historical personages…and in some ways, perhaps above Jesus Christ in the minds of many of his present-day devotees and epigones." is more properly assigned as being just below Lincoln, who has been assigned the place of Jesus by the Lincoln cultists.

    Let's not forget Lincoln's adulation of the '48ers and his appointment of officers from that attempted revolution in Europe to his officer staff. Lincoln worship came long before the inclusion of King by the GOP, and has always been a leftist phenomenon in the GOP.

    The leftists who "hijacked" the GOP could have made no progress if not for the existence of the GOP's longstanding history of leftism, which is evident in their worship of Lincoln. Both leftist saints, Lincoln and King, in the political pantheon are deemed unimpeachable holy men by both parties.

    “The leftists who “hijacked” the GOP could have made no progress if not for the existence of the GOP’s longstanding history of leftism, which is evident in their worship of Lincoln.”

    “But Abraham Lincoln is not, and nor was his Administration, any model for what today seems so objectionable in the modern welfare state. His unwavering commitment to natural rights and the Constitution’s framework of limited government, as well as the comparatively limited forces he called into the defense of the nation during the Civil War, not only place him in philosophical opposition to the Left, but dispel any notions that he set the stage for the expansion of government in the 20th century.”

    Indeed. Re King's I have A Dream Speech Boyd says that the line "Let Freedom Right from Stone Mountain in Georgia" was plagiarized by King from another source, and gives a comment by an anonymous poster on Yahoo Answers as the source. Whatever the source, it is questionable whether this line from an oral preaching or exhortation can be simply called "plagiarism." Preachers use similar exhortatory phrases and cadences all the time, and the fraternity of black Baptist southern preachers shared a common lexicon, understanding, style and phrasing. King was a fully fledged member in that fraternity, including being close friends with various black preachers using similar themes to his. It is doubtful whether using common phrases and common themes would have been considered "plagiarism" by either man.

    When a credible scholar and theologian does look at the full context of the matter, his conclusion, for which he presents detailed evidence, is that King is not guilty of "dream" speech plagiarism- but rather that King used a general theme that was in common use for exhortatory purposes among other black preachers in his fraternity - a word play on the well known classic patriotic hymn "My country tis of thee." (See Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Theology of Resistance- 20-14- by Rufus Burrow, Jr.)

    King's miscues in other speeches where he borrowed more liberally without attribution certainly deserve criticism, as does his thesis, but the various "gotcha" charges by his detractors are not all they seem, and if the same "fine tooth" scrutiny were applied to other speeches or writings of public personalities, plenty of missteps can be found. FOr example "plagiarism" is found among some white founding fathers, from Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Paine. See for example the usage of Thomas Jefferson and his "borrowing" of work from others below, and even an apology by James Madison for plagiarism.
    http://honeycreekschool.org/ms/files/2013/11/Jeffersons-Plagiarism.pdf


    See also the article below by the conservative Mises institute which also notes that Founding Father Jefferson seems to have plagiarized. This is nt a charge first made by "liberal elites" or "PC professors" but by a contemporary- Richard Henry Lee, one of the first Motion signers initiating the move towards Independence. Jefferson never denied the charge. QUOTE:


    "In fact, Richard Henry Lee accused Jefferson of plagiarism. According to the man who signed the first motion for independence in June 1776, the Declaration was copied from John Locke’s Second Treatise. The Virginian had no reason to dispute that allegation. In fact, Jefferson considered this to be the document's real strength:"
    https://mises.org/library/real-jefferson
     
    Ironically, it is "liberal" scholars like Taylor Branch that brought attention to King's sloppiness and plagiarism to a wide audience with his books, debunking claims of alleged "liberal cover-ups."

    Correct.

    Long before Jews came to replace their old Senior partner, the northern WASPs who controlled the country had decided that black equality - subsidized by rich WASPs and Jews - would be smashed down on the white south and on 'ethnic' whites, which would achieve two goals: 1, make certain the slicker among the poorer whites never got a movement going to ally with blacks against the WASP Elites and their Jewish BFFs, say to expose growing wealth concentration, which the most astute knew as early as the immediate aftermath of WW2; make it much harder for members of non-wealthy, non-well-connected whites to have any chance to make it big without selling out fully to the WASP Elites and their Jewish allies.

    The blacks did not cause anything. Rather, blacks are tools and weapons manipulated by the WASP Elites (and later also by their Jewish allies) against the majority of white Christians.

    “The blacks did not cause anything. Rather, blacks are tools and weapons manipulated by the WASP Elites (and later also by their Jewish allies) against the majority of white Christians.”

    Assuming what you say is true, and that is a big assumption, what are you personally doing as a white Christian to stave off the WASP elites and their Jewish allies? How are you directly confronting their lies other than commenting on a blog? It seems to me that if the situation is so urgent, so dire, that souls are being lost everyday, you as a warrior of God would commit yourself to this fight. Again, what has been or is going to be your course of action?

    That's exactly right. If they don't already have something to work with, they can artificially create that division with 'the immigrant', a tried and true method that's worked well throughout history, ie the Roman colonia, the Irish Plantatation, or as described below and published by an Israeli university, in the state of Israel with 'development towns' there.

    It wasn't a coincidence that as soon as Germany's economic system post WWII could stand it they moved in Turkish 'guest workers'.

    They're still attempting to do something like that with the Japanese who have been resistant.

    'Between National and Local: Political Mobilization among Mizrahim in Israel’s ‘Development Towns’

    ’..the immigrants usually serve three main functions: cheap labor to replace native groups; settlement in the ‘frontier’ (periphery); and control over the natives and their land (Stasilius and Yuval-Davis, 1995). These dynamics generally result in the maintenance of hegemony.’

    In the third of a special series on Japan, BBC News Online's Sarah Buckley reports on how an ageing population is forcing people to reconsider attitudes to immigration.

    The name Sony summons visions of all things Japanese. Yet its board chairman, Iwao Nakatani, recently called for mass immigration, opening Japan to different faces and influences.

    Mr Nakatani is worried because Japanese are living longer, yet having fewer children. The result is a shrinking workforce which threatens economic growth. In recognition, the government is thinking of loosening its restrictive immigration policy.

    But any changes may come as a shock to a nation where registered foreigners make up just over 1% of its population...

    You are right except that the elites themselves funded Communism. The best option would be complete separation of the races into different countries both within the USA as well as South Africa. But in both countries, the elites would never allow it as their divide and rule strategy would not work in racially homogeneous nations. Apartheid South Africa was ready to give blacks their own homelands like Swaziland and Botswana, but the Globalist elites would not have any of it. Like Bophuthatswana, which had platinum mines, which accounted for two-thirds of the total platinum production in the Western world. It was also rich in asbestos, granite, vanadium, chromium and manganese. But neither the U.N. nor any government outside of South Africa would recognize it. After the ANC came back into power, it was absorbed back into South Africa.

    …the elites would never allow it as their divide and rule strategy would not work in racially homogeneous nations.

    That’s exactly right. If they don’t already have something to work with, they can artificially create that division with ‘the immigrant’, a tried and true method that’s worked well throughout history, ie the Roman colonia, the Irish Plantatation, or as described below and published by an Israeli university, in the state of Israel with ‘development towns’ there.

    It wasn’t a coincidence that as soon as Germany’s economic system post WWII could stand it they moved in Turkish ‘guest workers’.

    They’re still attempting to do something like that with the Japanese who have been resistant.

    The name Sony summons visions of all things Japanese. Yet its board chairman, Iwao Nakatani, recently called for mass immigration, opening Japan to different faces and influences.

    Mr Nakatani is worried because Japanese are living longer, yet having fewer children. The result is a shrinking workforce which threatens economic growth. In recognition, the government is thinking of loosening its restrictive immigration policy.

    But any changes may come as a shock to a nation where registered foreigners make up just over 1% of its population…

  55. Being human, we are all flawed. Celebrities tend to be more flawed than most, probably because fame brings power that allows people to indulge their baser urges. Conservatives, however, aren’t allowed to have flaws. They are even condemned ex post facto for activities that were considered normal and moral in their times. Progressives, however, can flaunt the standards of their own day and get their faults whitewashed to achieve sainthood.

    Great videos. The Japanese economist is quite correct in his analysis.

    They ever so desperately wish to bring chattel slavery and its trade monetized (ie the cheap labor/mass immigration system) to Japan where all sorts of mischief can then proceed.

    Unfortunately for the Japanese they are under US military occupation. Even so, this monetized chattel slavery which forms the very economic basis of the multicultural society should be resisted by them in every way as it is amongst other things quite simply immoral.

    Certainly, MLK was no saint Like Lincoln, he has been unjustly deified.

    Having said that, I would have to agree with numerous quotes of his that were considered egregious to the writer.

    Here are a number of them I concur were spoken rightly by MLK from the above quotes.

    That a one-time “Hollywood performer” who lacked “distinction even as an actor” could “become a leading war hawk candidate for the presidency” had to have been due to a most “melancholy turn of events [.]” In fact, “only the irrationalities induced by a war psychosis” could explain it.

    (19) “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

    (7) America maintains “a continued alliance…with racism and exploitation throughout the world.”

    (18) Since “the destructive power of modern weapons eliminates even the possibility that war may serve as a negative good,” those “who sincerely feel that disarmament is an evil and international negotiation is an abominable waste of time” are sorely mistaken.

    (25) The Vietnam War was “senseless,” “unjust,” and “racist [.]” In truth, it is America that is “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today [.]”

    MLK did get some things right. American foreign policy was one of them.

    "It’s good to see that some of the commenters here really get it. King was just a front man, a spokesman, for the same globalist elites (the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, et al.) who control anything of importance in this country."

    King was no front man. That is Fake News. Now, assuming that the Rockefellers and Rothschilds are in firm control, what are doing about it to ensure that your own children and grandchildren aren't slaves to their machinations anymore? Do you not have a duty to free them? What has been or is going to be your course of action?

    "Desegregation was imposed from the top down; it was not the result of some spontaneous movement that originated with the blacks."

    Actually, black soldiers coming home from World War II consciously formed organizations to combat their own totalitarianism at home--Jim Crow laws.

    "Indeed, in those days, there were a significant number of blacks in the US that didn’t even want desegregation. Many of them were followers of Marcus Garvey."

    Actually, some blacks were familiar with Garvey's work, but most were more in tune with the philosophy of W.E.B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washingston.

    "Also note that as early as 1948–several years before anyone outside of Atlanta had ever even heard of MLK–Hubert Humphrey (a well-known establishment tool) was already publicly calling for an
    end to segregation at the Democratic Party convention that year."

    HH was on the right side of history. YOU?

    "And note that the Brown decision (arguably our first major case of judicial fiat) predated the much celebrated Rosa Parks incident that first launched King. In sum: King did not create the black rights movement."

    No, but King helped to nationalize the cause. Furthermore, the Brown decision had been built upon two previous cases that dealt with segregation and college programs. Would you want to know more, citizen?

    "Desegregation was a globalist plot."

    Actually, desegregation was a noble effort by northern and southern blacks and whites to finally ensure that fundamental liberties would be recognized and protected.

    Are you really this ignorant?

    Not just ignorant it would seem. Does’nt his use of the word “plot” signify something.

    Unless one wants to discount completely the Christian ethics of those Evangelicals like Wilberforce who fought to free blacks from slavery, and the ruling class that they persuaded it is just weird not to credit hundreds of thousands, even millions, of white Christians and Jews with recognising that emancipation was only half the task that justice and decency required.

    Thanks, you are so right, you spared me the effort of mentioning Hubert Humphry, the Brown decision and the affirmative action act of 1968. The entire civil rights movement was a well scripted well acted, action of the American government using the great foundations such as Ford, Carnegie etc.

    Alleged motivation was the cold war. The soviets were on a world wide propaganda binge claiming that Americans were burning negroes to death in every village park.

    See my response to Corvinus (with whom I don’t often agree). You seem to be committing some logical error by putting weight on the (correct) argument that it was bad business for the US in competition with the Communist (and nonaligned) world to be openly racist in law and practice to the detriment of the weak and non white. Even if you have other motives as well it is only sensible to call on those which will appeal to others.

  71. Boyd’s article is accurate on several counts. It has been well known since the late 1980s for example that King plagiarized some of his writings and that he took aid from former Communists like Stanley Levinson, or that he was no paragon of perfection in his personal life. But Boyd’s post has a number of severe weaknesses as well.

    He says for example that you are labeled “racist” if you point out such things, but this is contradicted by the very same “establishment biographers” he frowns at, who themselves are not shy in revealing Kings failures. In fact, it is those very same biographers such as Garrow and Branch, that brought attention to King’s failures to a vast general public, failures that would have remained muted behind dry academic tomes without wide distribution. They certainly have not been labeled “racist” by any significant percentage of the public. Matter of fact Taylor Branch won a acclaim for his work, even though on several counts it shows King in an unflattering light. Hardly to be expected if there was this vile curtain of oppression against any who “dared to speak unmentionable truths” about King.

    Second, Boyd naively (or wilfully) accepts much of the dishonest propaganda of the FBI ‘s decade-long smear campaign against King. As respected scholar David Garrow shows, this smear campaign on several is marked by massive distortion and outright falsehood. Keep in mind this is the same Garrow whose biography of King often reveals his failures, such as his womanizing, and weakness in taking a firm hand in resolving disputes among his lieutenants and various factions of the Civil rights Movement. Boyd’s laundry list of “helpful information” from the FBI, the distorted circulars, anonymous letters, wiretap transcripts, rumors, planted stories, and twisted “briefings” are all part of the documented smear campaign, and require caution and appropriate skepticism when presented as “the truth” by King detractors.

    And this is a great irony. If the FBI and various white politicians had been more honest and fair-minded in their dealings with King such things would have more bite. But the smear campaign and various COINTELPRO excesses has engendered widespread skepticism, hoisting conservative detractors of King on their own petard.

  72. Third, Boyd laments that “establishment conservatives” have lionized King too much. But this is rather naive. Think about it. Why would Glenn Beck, Jonah Goldberg etc hail King? Because King serves a very useful purpose for conservatives. He can be invoked to support the present conservative strategy of talking up “color blindness” which oft conceals white manipulation and behavior to stymie black progress. Hence zoning regulations pushed by conservatives in an area that make the cost of housing too high for many black working families can be portrayed as “color blind” regulation, when the real purpose is to keep put blacks, and as a nice corollary, keep them out of white neighborhood schools as well.

    Conservatives touting “enhanced employment requirements” in various jobs that previously did not require such “enhancements” likewise can claim to be pursuing color blindness, but the real target is to keep blacks out of certain jobs that whites might get, particularly if the blacks can do the same job more cheaply. Court cases reveal a lot of the deceptive shenanigans in use. And conservatives well know that AA has delivered most of its benefits to whites- with white women their own wives and daughters, being the primary beneficiaries of “affirmative action.” The naïve fail to grasp the game.

    In education, many wonder at the support of “affirmative action” by some conservatives, but the tiny number of black AA quota admittees to elite colleges (which is where most of the action is) ,masks an even greater quota of special preference- namely the 15 to 25% of mostly white “LEGACY” and alumni kid admittees into elite colleges. The minor blacks are put out front by conservatives to take the heat, while the really significant “white quotas” proceed on unnoticed. This is especially important in the era of strong Asian competition that outpaces whites on many counts. Whites utilize the many levers of “diversity” admissions, such as essays, “community service” etc etc to get more whites past Asians with better test scores. The result is less Asian grinders and competitors on campus- more whites. And best of all it can all be masked by blaming “quotas for blacks” Sweet! Only the gullible have not caught on to the game.

  73. Fourth, Boyd laments that old line racialist conservatives who oppose the civil rights movement, or harp about black mental inferiority, or who oppose government programs to help the poor etc have been purged from the conservative movement. This may be true, but there is also a level of naïvete to this lament. Conservatives figured out long ago that to win over the electorate they had to TONE DOWN old school racism or racialism, and present a kinder, gentler face, rooted in color blind pronouncements and “dog whistle” coding.

    Nixon figured this out in the 1970s. Hence he talked up certain things like “black capitalism” but this was mostly PR. His creation of quotas via his “Philadelphia Plan” exposed union racism in how they sandbagged black progress, but Nixon knew that the maneuver would drive a fatal wedge in the Dem coalition of Jews, blacks, and northern whites. He then later campaigned against “quotas.” In like manner, Ronald Reagan presented a smiling, genial face for public consumption but behind the scenes carried out much desired racial policies desired by whites such as gutting anti-discrimination enforcement in employment and housing. This is pretty standard history.

    All these measures were successful and put conservatives in power. They split the Dems and moved southern whites into the GOP column, while reassuring northern whites who were tired of snarling racialism that made them, and white America in general look bad.

  74. Fifth, Boyd laments that ” King Day becomes as a major ideological blitzkrieg, a weaponized cudgel used to strike down and silence anyone.” But this is not so at all. To the contrary, King Day nods are part of a genial conservative strategy that works. The ploy IS precisely to appear at MLK Day and make soothing pronouncements. King can be sanitized and turned to conservative purposes. It’s a shrewd successful approach, that only the naïve fail to grasp.

    King Day has been used by the Left, but it has also been used by the Right as well, to its profit. And the observance is hardly responsible for things like “gay” marriage. Sure speeches are made on that day by proponents, but the heavy black turnout in 2008 by black church leaders that helped defeat California’s Prop 208 gay marriage measure, also made use of King day to mobilize blacks to secure victory on the issue. Nor is King a significant factor in “gayness” given central drivers such as the movement of whites away from traditional marriage- a trend in place since the late 1950s, long BEFORE any King speech or holiday.

    As regards the “shocking” assistance given to King by former communists like Stanley Levinson and Bayard Rustin, the dire picture painted by Boyd is dubious. Neither Rustin or Levinson were members of the CPUSA during King’s civil rights push, but even of they were so what? King needed cash for the movement, not to mention lots of bail money. Sympathetic people, (who were not members of the communist party mind you at the time) who could fund raise for him were welcome. Taking aid in the fight against a common enemy is news? Hell the US supplied plenty if aid to the communist Tito during the Cold War and before, and supplied arms and aid to a guy named Ho CHi Minh in Vietnam in exchange for intel on Japanese military operations.

    And an element of hypocrisy is clearly present in the pious condemnations of King-Levinson-Rustin. Southern segregationists including Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms received fulsome cash, manpower and other support from segregationists of the White Citizens Councils and other such organizations during the 1950s and 1960s. These were some of the same whites encouraging violence against blacks in the civil rights movement. They also organized boycotts and “sanctions” against uppity local negroes that participated in civil rights, including firing said negroes, callin in their mortgages and loans, and all sorts of other intimidation. Yet FBI Director Hoover and segregation loving folk, including those in the present era, have very little bad to say about such things, or the cash exchanging hands thereto. Its only when when King gets aid from Levinson et al that they break forth in righteous, and hypocritical dudgeon.

The general picture, and one loved by whites of all stripes since it papers over much of the ugliness of racism, and hidden structural manipulation, is of a happy, color blind America filled with nice Jews and Gentiles and happy interracial harmony, epitomized in the ritual playing of King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. It is all cliché, that fits conservative purposes. It is hardly the dire “threat to America” that Boyd makes out.

    Quite the contrary, it makes America look good, just as King’s “Dream” speech in 1963 made white America look good, could be waved in the face of the Soviets and Third World, and presented as a tangible proof of racial progress by the “Free World” leader. King Day is a quick, easy, cheap way for white politicians across the board to look to be “connected” or “in touch” with blacks, when in fact they may be anything but. It is easy symbolism without giving away too much substance. Ronald Reagan, who opposed the King holiday finally bowed to pressure from both sides of the political aisle to sign it into law. The genial racialist did so with a smile. Why? It was a quick easy symbolic measure, even as he gutted anti-discrimination enforcement, and attempted to weaken the Voting Rights Act, give tax breaks to segregated schools and cut a number of “urban” programs vitally needed by poor people. The King day feel-good speeches were an excellent mask for such things.

    King himself in a 1967 NBC interview lamented the simplistic language and hope boosterism of the famous March speech in terms of REAL action as opposed to flowery rhetoric. White America he noted had purchased peace at “bargain rates” – how much effort did it really cost whites to let black people eat in the same restaurant for example? But when it came to REAL issues which would cost- jobs, education and housing, white America was in no hurry. A long struggle still lay ahead.

    "The leftists who “hijacked” the GOP could have made no progress if not for the existence of the GOP’s longstanding history of leftism, which is evident in their worship of Lincoln."

    You really need a nap, and a history lesson.

    "But Abraham Lincoln is not, and nor was his Administration, any model for what today seems so objectionable in the modern welfare state. His unwavering commitment to natural rights and the Constitution’s framework of limited government, as well as the comparatively limited forces he called into the defense of the nation during the Civil War, not only place him in philosophical opposition to the Left, but dispel any notions that he set the stage for the expansion of government in the 20th century."

    Indeed. Re King’s I have A Dream Speech Boyd says that the line “Let Freedom Right from Stone Mountain in Georgia” was plagiarized by King from another source, and gives a comment by an anonymous poster on Yahoo Answers as the source. Whatever the source, it is questionable whether this line from an oral preaching or exhortation can be simply called “plagiarism.” Preachers use similar exhortatory phrases and cadences all the time, and the fraternity of black Baptist southern preachers shared a common lexicon, understanding, style and phrasing. King was a fully fledged member in that fraternity, including being close friends with various black preachers using similar themes to his. It is doubtful whether using common phrases and common themes would have been considered “plagiarism” by either man.

    When a credible scholar and theologian does look at the full context of the matter, his conclusion, for which he presents detailed evidence, is that King is not guilty of “dream” speech plagiarism- but rather that King used a general theme that was in common use for exhortatory purposes among other black preachers in his fraternity – a word play on the well known classic patriotic hymn “My country tis of thee.” (See Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Theology of Resistance- 20-14- by Rufus Burrow, Jr.)

    King’s miscues in other speeches where he borrowed more liberally without attribution certainly deserve criticism, as does his thesis, but the various “gotcha” charges by his detractors are not all they seem, and if the same “fine tooth” scrutiny were applied to other speeches or writings of public personalities, plenty of missteps can be found. FOr example “plagiarism” is found among some white founding fathers, from Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Paine. See for example the usage of Thomas Jefferson and his “borrowing” of work from others below, and even an apology by James Madison for plagiarism.

    See also the article below by the conservative Mises institute which also notes that Founding Father Jefferson seems to have plagiarized. This is nt a charge first made by “liberal elites” or “PC professors” but by a contemporary- Richard Henry Lee, one of the first Motion signers initiating the move towards Independence. Jefferson never denied the charge. QUOTE:

    “In fact, Richard Henry Lee accused Jefferson of plagiarism. According to the man who signed the first motion for independence in June 1776, the Declaration was copied from John Locke’s Second Treatise. The Virginian had no reason to dispute that allegation. In fact, Jefferson considered this to be the document’s real strength:”

    Ironically, it is “liberal” scholars like Taylor Branch that brought attention to King’s sloppiness and plagiarism to a wide audience with his books, debunking claims of alleged “liberal cover-ups.”

    MLK was actor who achieved stardom. He is now saint because he was assassinated.

    So what!
    He did not solve anything. He did not create anything.

    Actually King helped get a lot done in partnership with a host of others from students, to white clergy, to liberal activists, even some white Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller, who helped bail him out at times with cash. You simply do not know what you are talking about.
