When the Martinlutherking.org website exposed Dr. Martin Luther King's double life as a serial adulterer, the website was marginalized and denounced as "racist" because the site is run by Stormfront. But now a mainstream media source has published the same information. Let's see them call the Daily Mail "racist".
On August 30th, 2013, in response to the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech, the Daily Mail published an article entitled "Sex tapes, FBI smears and the double life of an all too human saint: The other side to the Martin Luther King story". While they pay lip service to him as a "brave, eloquent and inspiring man whose stirring speeches still resonate powerfully today", they also report on the much more seamy flip side of this character. Driven by then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s concern about King's Communist ties, federal agents bugged his hotel rooms. Instead, what they found was not evidence of Communism but of serial adultery. Dr. King was an inveterate womanizer who cheated on his wife throughout their marriage. In fact, King’s secret sex life became such a talking point at the White House that recently released interviews with Jackie Kennedy revealed even she knew about it.
The Daily Mail also cites further damning evidence from the Rev. Ralph Abernathy, who succeeded King as the movement’s leader. Abernathy related an extraordinary story that indicated King spent the last night of his life enjoying the attentions of not one but two lovers, followed by an encounter with a third woman whom he knocked sprawling across his motel room bed. The evening began with King delivering his historic Mountaintop speech at the Masonic Temple in Memphis, in which he appeared to foresee his own death. Afterwards, Abernathy, King and a civil rights movement comrade, the Rev Bernard Lee, went to the home of one of King’s female friends for a late-night dinner. Abernathy said he and Lee took a nap in the sitting room, awakening at 1 A.M. to see King emerging with the woman from her bedroom. They then returned to their lodgings at a local motel, where a black female politician was waiting to see him. She got her wish and Abernathy left the couple to go to get some sleep in the room he shared with King.
At around 7 A.M. or 8 A.M., King burst into the bedroom, looking alarmed. King needed Abernathy’s help to calm down a third woman who got mad at him because she found his bed empty when she came in. But the drama didn’t end there. When the third woman turned up in the room, her argument with King became so intense that he lost his temper and knocked her across the bed. From the Martinlutherking.org website:
January 6, 1964, was a long day for Martin Luther King Jr. He spent the morning seated in the reserved section of the Supreme Court, listening as lawyers argued New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, a landmark case rising out of King's crusade against segregation in Alabama. The minister was something of an honored guest: Justice Arthur Goldberg quietly sent down a copy of Kings account of the Montgomery bus boycott, "Stride Toward Freedom," asking for an autograph. That night King retired to his room at the Willard Hotel. There FBI bugs reportedly picked up 14 hours of party chatter, the clinking of glasses and the sounds of illicit sex -- including King's cries of "I'm fucking for God" and "I'm not a Negro tonight!"
After Abernathy revealed this information, some of King's acolytes went in damage control mode, portraying Abernathy as a profit-hungry Judas Iscariot. Several knowledgeable individuals denied that any sex occurred. But Abernathy stuck to his story for the rest of his life. But King's philandering was it an open secret among civil rights activists who warned King to rein in his compulsive sexual athleticism. But King was unrepentant, telling a friend: "I’m away from home 25 to 27 days a month. Fucking’s a form of anxiety reduction". Other sources documented King's philandering outside the U.S. One of King’s most distinguished biographers, Taylor Branch, revealed how -- on King’s trip to Norway to collect the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize -- members of his entourage were found running after naked prostitutes in the Oslo hotel where they were staying. Only a desperate appeal to hotel security saved them from being thrown out.
U.S. media outlets are ignoring this story, instead regurgitating the same old worshipful crap about how there's work to do to realize Dr. King's dream and typical drivel about what we can learn from him. Yada, yada, yada. The Daily Mail deserves credit for swimming against the tide and publishing the whole story. Townhall did tell some truth about Dr. King, noting that he would have supported affirmative action and radical resource redistribution to blacks, but still didn't go as far as the Daily Mail. They did characterize King as a man of the hard left who called for the fundamental transformation of the United States long before Barack Obama called for the same.
