The Martin Luther King Myth

Had Martin Luther King not been martyred and chose to run for public office, he would not have survived the vetting. The man was an unabashed plagiarist. His entire PhD. Dissertation was plagiarized verbatim, as was his high school term papers. Even his resounding “I Have a Dream,” speech was plagiarized from Archibald Carey’s speech to the 1952 Republican convention. The “Dr.” title he added to his name was a gross affectation. Legitimate Ph.D’s are not wont to use that title.

The man was a sex addict of the first order. He was given to sexual orgies with prostitutes whom he enjoyed beating up. According to Ralph Abernathy, MLK had spent the night before he was shot in one such orgy. Herman Cain and Dominique Strauss-Kahn come across as choir boys by comparison.

That such a person has been accorded a national holiday and has streets, schools, parks and libraries named after him is an unspeakable abomination. Though he did not possess a silver tongue like MLK’s, the Rev. Medgars Evers, assassinated in 1964, would have made a deserving martyr.

The great Negro leaders of the past—Fredrick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, and W.E.B. Dubois, all of whom wrote their own material, would be turning in their graves had they known of the honor that that the future generation would accord to a fraud like MLK.

Time to restore the great American Presidents carved on Mount Rushmore to their rightful place on the national calendar. MLK is nowhere, nowhere at all in the same league with them.
