Sharing this link to a copy of the FBI’s letter to Dr. King. Let’s not forget how our intelligence community feels about the true freedom fighters in our history before it gets wiped from our collective memory.
dickjokesauce: the response by the status quo to MLK is all the evidence you need to know that he had a just cause. that his messages are as valid today as they were when he said them is yet another tell.
googlythemoogly: And when he wouldn’t kill himself they killed him.
wayofthesmile: I find it strange that we don’t know the names of the responsible at FBI for this letter and what happened to their careers from that moment on. My suspicion is that they made great careers and picked like minded as their replacements.
Wuggarat: I wonder what name was blurred out from his exploits on the west coast.
n0eticsyntax: >You have just 34 days in which to do it (this exact number has been selected for a specific reason, it has definite practical significance)
Anyone know what the practical significance mentioned in that letter was? December 25th, 1964, so Christmas. But is there something I’m missing?
menow: One of the most shameful and evil acts ever by the US government. Crazy how many people have never heard of this, or who think it’s just not true when told.
The letter the FBI sent to MLK JR telling him to kill himself
The FBI sent this to MLK JR insisting he kill himself. Here is further information. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/11/16/magazine/what-an-uncensored-letter-to-mlk-reveals.html?referer=https://www.google.com/
kapnkrispy: First time commenting. This may be a silly, ignorant question but, what is the significance of the 34 days?
FetusViolator: I think this one takes the cake for the original copy pasta. wow..
Your “honorary degrees”, your Nobel Prize (What a grim farce) and other awards will not save you. King, I repeat you are done.
Spurley: If it’s from the FBI then why in paragraph two, does it say “all of us negroes?”
gryphon_844: lol at the first paragraph… gotta get in that jab towards the british crown.
twiliteshadow2: If the FBI can send this letter and get away with it, how can you trust anyone in your government is beyond me. No wonder Trump gets away with his racist remarks when people in charge speak like this.
Since it’s his birthday, I’d like to remind everyone that a jury found the the US government to be responsible for the death of Martin Luther King
Martin Luther King assassinated by US Govt: King Family civil trial verdict
Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.
Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of assassination/wrongful death. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King Center fully documents the case, with full trial transcript (to more fully explain the following summary of evidence, here is the best article I’ve found).
The overwhelming evidence of US government complicity found valid by the jury includes:
- US 111th Military Intelligence Group were at Dr. King’s location during the assassination.
- 20th Special Forces Group had an 8-man sniper team at the assassination location on that day.
- Usual Memphis Police special body guards were advised they “weren’t needed” on the day of the assassination.
- Regular and constant police protection for Dr. King was removed from protecting Dr. King an hour before the assassination.
- Military Intelligence set-up photographers on the roof of a fire station with clear view to Dr. King’s balcony.
- Dr. King’s room was changed from a secure 1st-floor room to an exposed balcony room.
- Memphis police ordered the scene where multiple witnesses reported as the source of shooting cut down of their bushes that would have hid a sniper.
- Along with sanitizing a crime scene, police abandoned investigative procedure to interview witnesses who lived by the scene of the shooting.
- The rifle Mr. Ray delivered was not matched to the bullet that killed Dr. King, and was not sighted to accurately shoot.
Also, the FBI acted to cause Dr. King’s death by suicide. The FBI illegally spied on Dr. King, used data in attempt to split leadership, and sent Dr. King a letter promising to expose alleged sexual misconduct. This was part of the FBI’s illegal COINTELPRO program.
Please read the above evidence twice to be clear on its overwhelming power.
The King family’s attempts for a criminal trial were always denied by state and federal government. Claimed suspect, James Ray, said that his government-appointed attorney told him to sign a guilty plea to prevent the death penalty and threatened arrests of his father and brother as co-conspirators for his only part in the assassination plot: delivering a rifle. Mr. Ray produced a letter from his attorney stating the promise that Mr. Ray would receive a trial. When Mr. Ray discovered that he was solely blamed for Dr. King’s assassination and would never receive a trial, Mr. Ray’s subsequent recants of his guilty plea and requests for trial were denied.
The US government also denied the King family’s requests for independent investigation of the assassination, despite the overwhelming evidence produced at the 1999 civil trial. Dr. King’s wife, Coretta, spent more than twice the number of years she was married to Martin working to get a criminal trial for her husband’s assassination.
Importantly, the US government has never presented any evidence subject to challenge that substantiates their claim that Mr. Ray assassinated Dr. King.
The King family believes the government’s motivation to murder Dr. King was to prevent his imminent camp-in/Occupy at Washington, D.C. until the Vietnam War was ended and those resources directed to end poverty and invest in US hard and soft infrastructure.
Let’s summarize: Under US Civil Law, covert US government agencies were found guilty of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King was the leading figure of the Civil Rights Movement, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and widely recognized as one of the world’s greatest speakers for what it means to be human. The family’s conclusion as to motive was to prevent Dr. King from ending the Vietnam War because the government wanted to continue its ongoing illegal covert and overt military operations to control foreign governments and their resources.
It is therefore a factual statement that under US Civil Law, the US government assassinated Dr. King.
Bill Pepper, King family friend and attorney, explaining the assassination (start at 7:35 to avoid a glitch; 100 minutes):
Dr. King’s 47-minute speech to Stanford University, 1967:
CreepinDeep: In elementary my brother learned about MLK, the next day he told my dad. My dad told him the CIA killed him. Lol. My brother was like 6. The next day he goes back to school for the next lesson and the he comes back home telling us that he told the teacher, “my Dad said the CIA killed him” lol.
The teacher apparently told him the CIA doesn’t exist.
TheCIASellsDrugs: Submission statement: Martin Luther King was murdered by a conspiracy involving the US government. Military intelligence and special forces were at the scene of his death.
DrStevenPoop: That is bullsh**.
The King family sued, in civil court, a man named Loyd Jowers who claimed that he was part of a government conspiracy to kill MLK. He didn’t present a defense and the jury found him guilty, and awarded the King family $100 in damages. That’s not a typo. One hundred dollars. It was a show trial.
So why civil court, instead of criminal court? Well, Jowers refused to cooperate with the DOJ, and even when they offered him immunity, he wouldn’t give them a definitive statement. He kept changing his story. His sister also admitted on tape that he made it up so he could make $300,000 from selling the story.
The government may have killed MLK, but this court case was a joke, and should not be taken as evidence or proof of anything.
ReDMeridiaN: A jury also found OJ Simpson not guilty of murder.
