THE BEAST AS SAINT: The Truth About "Martin Luther King, Jr."

by Kevin Alfred Strom 

(a speech given by Mr. Strom on the nationwide radio program, AMERICAN 
DISSIDENT VOICES) 

WHEN THE COMMUNISTS TOOK OVER a country, one of the first things that 
they did was to confiscate all the privately-held weapons, to deny the 
people the physical ability to resist tyranny. But even more insidious 
than the theft of the people's weapons was the theft of their history. 
Official Communist "historians" rewrote history to fit the current party 
line. In many countries, revered national heroes were excised from the 
history books, or their real deeds were distorted to fit Communist 
ideology, and Communist killers and criminals were converted into 
official "saints." Holidays were declared in honor of the beasts who 
murdered countless nations. 

Did you know that much the same process has occurred right here in 
America? 

Every January, the media go into a kind of almost spastic frenzy of 
adulation for the so-called "Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr." 
King has even had a national holiday declared in his honor, an honor 
accorded to no other American, not Washington, not Jefferson, not 
Lincoln. (Washington and Lincoln no longer have holidays -- they share 
the generic-sounding "President's Day.") A liberal judge has sealed the 
FBI files on King until the year 2027. What are they hiding? Let's take 
a look at this modern-day plastic god. 

Born in 1929, King was the son of a Black preacher known at the time 
only as "Daddy King." "Daddy King" named his son Michael. In 1935, 
"Daddy King" had an inspiration to name himself after the Protestant 
reformer Martin Luther. He declared to his congregation that henceforth 
they were to refer to him as "Martin Luther King" and to his son as 
"Martin Luther King, Jr." None of this name changing was ever legalized 
in court. "Daddy" King's son's real name is to this day Michael King. 

King's Brazen Cheating

We read in Michael Hoffman's "Holiday for a Cheater": 

The first public sermon that King ever gave, in 1947 at the Ebenezer 
Baptist Church, was plagiarized from a homily by Protestant clergyman 
Harry Emerson Fosdick entitled "Life is What You Make It," according to 
the testimony of King's best friend of that time, Reverend Larry H. 
Williams. The first book that King wrote, "Stride Toward Freedom, - -was 
plagiarized from numerous sources, all unattributed, according to 
documentation recently assembled by sympathetic King scholars Keith D. 
Miller, Ira G. Zepp, Jr., and David J. Garrow. And no less an 
authoritative source than the four senior editors of "The Papers of 
Martin Luther King, Jr.- - (an official publication of the Martin Luther 
King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Inc., whose staff includes 
King's widow Coretta), stated of King's writings at both Boston 
University and Crozer Theological Seminary: "Judged retroactively by the 
standards of academic scholarship, [his writings] are tragically flawed 
by numerous instances of plagiarism.... Appropriated passages are 
particularly evident in his writings in his major field of graduate 
study, systematic theology." King's essay, "The Place of Reason and 
Experience in Finding God," written at Crozer, pirated passages from the 
work of theologian Edgar S. Brightman, author of "The Finding of God- -. 
Another of King's theses, "Contemporary Continental Theology," written 
shortly after he entered Boston University, was largely stolen from a 
book by Walter Marshall Horton. King's doctoral dissertation, "A 
Comparison of the Conceptions of God in the Thinking of Paul Tillich and 
Harry Nelson Wieman," for which he was awarded a PhD in theology, 
contains more than fifty complete sentences plagiarized from the PhD 
dissertation of Dr. Jack Boozer, "The Place of Reason in Paul Tillich's 
Concept of God." According to "The Martin Luther King Papers", in King's 
dissertation "only 49 per cent of sentences in the section on Tillich 
contain five or more words that were King's own...."! In "The Journal of 
American History", June 1991, page 87, David J. Garrow, a leftist 
academic who is sympathetic to King, says that King's wife, Coretta 
Scott King, who also served as his secretary, was an accomplice in his 
repeated cheating. Reading Garrow's article, one is led to the 
inescapable conclusion that King cheated because he had chosen for 
himself a political role in which a PhD would be useful, and, lacking 
the intellectual ability to obtain the title fairly, went after it by 
any means necessary. Why, then, one might ask, did the professors at 
Crozer Theological Seminary and Boston University grant him passing 
grades and a PhD? Garrow states on page 89: "King's academic 
compositions, especially at Boston University, were almost without 
exception little more than summary descriptions... and comparisons of 
other's writings. Nonetheless, the papers almost always received 
desirable letter grades, strongly suggesting that King's professors did 
not expect more...." The editors of "The Martin Luther King Jr. Papers" 
state that "...the failure of King's teachers to notice his pattern of 
textual appropriation is somewhat remarkable...." 

But researcher Michael Hoffman tells us "...actually the malfeasance of 
the professors is not at all remarkable. King was politically correct, 
he was Black, and he had ambitions. The leftist [professors were] happy 
to award a doctorate to such a candidate no matter how much fraud was 
involved. Nor is it any wonder that it has taken forty years for the 
truth about King's record of nearly constant intellectual piracy to be 
made public." 

Supposed scholars, who in reality shared King's vision of a racially 
mixed and Marxist America, purposely covered up his cheating for 
decades. The cover-up still continues. From the "New York Times" of 
October 11, 1991, page 15, we learn that on October 10th of that year, a 
committee of researchers at Boston University admitted that, "There is 
no question but that Dr. King plagiarized in the dissertation." However, 
despite its finding, the committee said that "No thought should be given 
to the revocation of Dr. King's doctoral degree," an action the panel 
said "would serve no purpose." 

No purpose, indeed! Justice demands that, in light of his willful fraud 
as a student, the "reverend" and the "doctor" should be removed from 
King's name. 

Communist Beliefs and Connections

Well friends, he is not a legitimate reverend, he is not a bona fide 
PhD, and his name isn't really "Martin Luther King, Jr." What's left? 
Just a sexual degenerate, an America-hating Communist, and a criminal 
betrayer of even the interests of his own people. 

On Labor Day, 1957, a special meeting was attended by Martin Luther King 
and four others at a strange institution called the Highlander Folk 
School in Monteagle, Tennessee. The Highlander Folk School was a 
Communist front, having been founded by Myles Horton (Communist Party 
organizer for Tennessee) and Don West (Communist Party organizer for 
North Carolina). The leaders of this meeting with King were the 
aforementioned Horton and West, along with Abner Berry and James 
Dumbrowski, all open and acknowledged members of the Communist Party, 
USA. The agenda of the meeting was a plan to tour the Southern states to 
initiate demonstrations and riots. 

From 1955 to 1960, Martin Luther King's associate, advisor, and personal 
secretary was one Bayard Rustin. In 1936 Rustin joined the Young 
Communist League at New York City College. Convicted of draft-dodging, 
he went to prison for two years in 1944. On January 23, 1953 the "Los 
Angeles Times" reported his conviction and sentencing to jail for 60 
days for lewd vagrancy and homosexual perversion. Rustin attended the 
16th Convention of the Communist Party, USA in February, 1957. One month 
later, he and King founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, 
or SCLC for short. The president of the SCLC was Dr. Martin Luther King, 
Jr. The vice-president of the SCLC was the Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, 
who was also the president of an identified Communist front known as the 
Southern Conference Educational Fund, an organization whose field 
director, a Mr. Carl Braden, was simultaneously a national sponsor of 
the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, of which you may have heard. The 
program director of the SCLC was the Reverend Andrew Young, in more 
recent years Jimmy Carter's ambassador to the UN and mayor of Atlanta. 
Young, by the way, was trained at the Highlander Folk School, previously 
mentioned. 

Soon after returning from a trip to Moscow in 1958, Rustin organized the 
first of King's famous marches on Washington. The official organ of the 
Communist Party, "The Worker,- - openly declared the march to be a 
Communist project. Although he left King's employ as secretary in 1961, 
Rustin was called upon by King to be second in command of the much 
larger march on Washington which took place on August 28, 1963. 

Bayard Rustin's replacement in 1961 as secretary and advisor to King was 
Jack O'Dell, also known as Hunter Pitts O'Dell. According to official 
records, in 1962 Jack O'Dell was a member of the National Committee of 
the Communist Party, USA. He had been listed as a Communist Party member 
as early as 1956. O'Dell was also given the job of acting executive 
director for SCLC activities for the entire Southeast, according to the 
St. Louis "Globe-Democrat - -of October 26, 1962. At that time, there 
were still some patriots in the press corps, and word of O'Dell's party 
membership became known. 

What did King do? Shortly after the negative news reports, King fired 
O'Dell with much fanfare. And he then, without the fanfare, "immediately 
hired him again- - as director of the New York office of the SCLC, as 
confirmed by the "Richmond News-Leader - -of September 27, 1963. In 1963 
a Black man from Monroe, North Carolina named Robert Williams made a 
trip to Peking, China. Exactly 20 days before King's 1963 march on 
Washington, Williams successfully urged Mao Tse-Tung to speak out on 
behalf of King's movement. Mr. Williams was also around this time 
maintaining his primary residence in Cuba, from which he made regular 
broadcasts to the southern US, three times a week, from high-power AM 
transmitters in Havana under the title "Radio Free Dixie." In these 
broadcasts, he urged violent attacks by Blacks against White Americans. 

During this period, Williams wrote a book entitled "Negroes With Guns." 
The writer of the foreword for this book? None other than Martin Luther 
King, Jr. It is also interesting to note that the editors and publishers 
of this book were to a man all supporters of the infamous Fair Play for 
Cuba Committee. 

According to King's biographer and sympathizer David J. Garrow, "King 
privately described himself as a Marxist." In his 1981 book, "The FBI 
and Martin Luther King, Jr.", Garrow quotes King as saying in SCLC staff 
meetings, "...we have moved into a new era, which must be an era of 
revolution.... The whole structure of American life must be changed.... 
We are engaged in the class struggle." 

Jewish Communist Stanley Levison can best be described as King's 
behind-the-scenes "handler." Levison, who had for years been in charge 
of the secret funnelling of Soviet funds to the Communist Party, USA, 
was King's mentor and was actually the brains behind many of King's more 
successful ploys. It was Levison who edited King's book, "Stride Toward 
Freedom." It was Levison who arranged for a publisher. Levison even 
prepared King's income tax returns! It was Levison who really controlled 
the fund-raising and agitation activities of the SCLC. Levison wrote 
many of King's speeches. King described Levison as one of his "closest 
friends." 

FBI: King Bought Sex With SCLC Money

The Federal Bureau of Investigation had for many years been aware of 
Stanley Levison's Communist activities. It was Levison's close 
association with King that brought about the initial FBI interest in 
King. 

Lest you be tempted to believe the controlled media's lie about 
"racists" in the FBI being out to "get" King, you should be aware that 
the man most responsible for the FBI's probe of King was Assistant 
Director William C. Sullivan. Sullivan describes himself as a liberal, 
and says that initially "I was one hundred per cent for King...because I 
saw him as an effective and badly needed leader for the Black people in 
their desire for civil rights." The probe of King not only confirmed 
their suspicions about King's Communist beliefs and associations, but it 
also revealed King to be a despicable hypocrite, an immoral degenerate, 
and a worthless charlatan. 

According to Assistant Director Sullivan, who had direct access to the 
surveillance files on King which are denied the American people, King 
had embezzled or misapplied substantial amounts of money contributed to 
the "civil rights" movement. King used SCLC funds to pay for liquor, and 
numerous prostitutes both Black and White, who were brought to his hotel 
rooms, often two at a time, for drunken sex parties which sometimes 
lasted for several days. These types of activities were the norm for 
King's speaking and organizing tours. 

In fact, an outfit called The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, 
Tennessee, which is putting on display the two bedrooms from the 
Lorraine Motel where King stayed the night before he was shot, has 
declined to depict in any way the "occupants - -of those rooms. 
That"according to exhibit designer Gerard Eisterhold"would be "close to 
blasphemy." The reason? Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spent his last night 
on Earth having sex with two women at the motel and physically beating 
and abusing a third. 

Sullivan also stated that King had alienated the affections of numerous 
married women. According to Sullivan, who in 30 years with the Bureau 
hadáseen everything there was to be seen of the seamy side of life, King 
was one of only seven people he had ever encountered who was such a 
total degenerate. 

Noting the violence that almost invariably attended King's supposedly 
"non-violent" marches, Sullivan's probe revealed a very different King 
from the carefully crafted public image. King welcomed members of many 
different Black groups as members of his SCLC, many of them advocates 
and practitioners of violence. King's only admonition on the subject was 
that they should embrace "tactical nonviolence." 

Sullivan also relates an incident in which King met in a financial 
conference with Communist Party representatives, not knowing that one of 
the participants was an infiltrator actually working for the FBI. 

J. Edgar Hoover personally saw to it that documented information on 
King's Communist connections was provided to the President and to 
Congress. And conclusive information from FBI files was also provided to 
major newspapers and news wire services. But were the American people 
informed of King's real nature? No, for even in the 1960s, the fix was 
in"the controlled media and the bought politicians were bound and 
determined to push their racial mixing program on America. King was 
their man and nothing was going to get in their way. With a few minor 
exceptions, these facts have been kept from the American people. The 
pro-King propaganda machine grinds on, and it is even reported that a 
serious proposal has been made to add some of King's writings as a new 
book in the Bible. 

Ladies and gentlemen, the purpose of this radio program is far greater 
than to prove to you the immorality and subversion of this man called 
King. I want you to start to think for yourselves. I want you to 
consider this: What are the forces and motivation behind the controlled 
media's active promotion of King? What does it tell you about our 
politicians when you see them, almost without exception, falling all 
over themselves to honor King as a national hero? What does it tell you 
about our society when any public criticism of this moral leper and 
Communist functionary is considered grounds for dismissal? What does it 
tell you about the controlled media when you see how they have 
successfully suppressed the truth and held out a picture of King that 
can only be described as a colossal lie? You need to think, my fellow 
Americans. You desperately need to wake up.
