Why So Many People Believe the FBI Killed Martin Luther King Jr.

Posted by M. C. Fox on April 4, 2017

Because these people have eyes, ears and a brain?

On April 4, 1967, exactly one year before he was assassinated, King gave a speech in which he denounced the Vietnam War, which the FBI took as proof of his communist affiliation.

Then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover even publicly denounced King as a liar and a fraud. He is believed to have also initiated a letter sent to King in 1964 accompanied by a tape from an alleged sex party in a DC hotel room. The letter appears to be crafted to sound like it was a disappointed former follower, describing King as an “evil, abnormal beast.” But that wouldn’t provide an explanation for how the disillusioned fan got access to all this knowledge on King’s “adulterous acts” “immoral conduct” and “sexual orgies.”

Only the FBI would have that knowledge, from the wiretaps and monitoring they were doing supposedly for national security purposes.

Is it possible that the blatant failure of the FBI’s public smear campaign against King, made them decide to go to the extreme to rid the nation of this “troublemaker”?

But even without smoking-gun proof that the FBI ordered the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. the organization’s behavior towards him was remarkably abhorrent. Using the excuse of national security, the FBI monitored him. But when they found nothing to pursue, they turned to a smear campaign from information they had gathered.

It sort of makes you wonder what the government might do with all the information collected by the NSA–or perhaps already has done.

What the government is best at.  Justifying its existence where there is no justification, at our expense.

J Edgar was rumored to be a lot of things.  Even Roy Cohn wondered.

Be seeing you
