As we approach the 13th anniversary of the day America truly came together, when all 50 states in the Union (some under duress) joined in unison to celebrate the birth of the greatest American who ever lived in our country, it seems apt to reflect on the only national holiday declared in honor of a single individual, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
As noted in my 2011 observance of Martin Luther King Day, “It’s only a matter of time before politicians and sculptors figure out a way to squeeze in Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s visage somewhere between Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt on Mount Rushmore or to chisel away one of those presidents and substitute Dr. King’s face and/or Barack Obama’s face in their stead.”
After all, Dr. King is evidently the greatest individual who has ever graced America’s history since no other individual has a national holiday solely dedicated in his name or has more streets, avenues, highways, by-ways, cul-de-sacs, lanes, alleyways, and dead-ends named after him.
On the other hand, some would opine that King exemplified Winston Churchill’s claim in praise of the RAF that, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few,” although King’s accomplishments were even more profound: Never was so much attention paid and so little owed, except to blacks, in America’s history.
Nevertheless, Dr. King is honored annually with a national holiday denied to every president in our history who are rewarded for their contributions to the nation only by a generic “Presidents Day.”
Regrettably, certain facets of King’s life won’t be remembered at all since they won’t made public until 2027, 14 years from now when most credible witnesses to those memories will have long passed to their reward.
The reason for that historical blackout? In 1977 during the administration of peanut farmer and incompetent president James Earl Carter, King’s wife, Coretta Scott King, somehow persuaded a federal court to seal 845 pages of her hubby’s FBI record for 50 years because its release would destroy his reputation.
For now and for the next 14 years, we can only speculate on the content of that FBI file and what it contains and so terrified Mrs. King. Could it also have destroyed her husband’s legacy and his inflated, politically-corrected “reputation.”
In the interim, we have already learned a few details on the hidden life of Dr. King, as well as the fact Jackie Kennedy viewed him as a “terrible” man, so terrible she couldn’t even look at his pictures. (“Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words,” audiotapes released in 2011.)
We have also learned that he was seemingly and contradictorily accused–though never proven–to be both “a womanizer and closet homosexual who engaged in wild sex parties using church funds and had an affinity for white women.
We have learned that his phone was bugged by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who later oddly saw fit to praise him as “God’s gift to America.”
We have learned that he was affiliated with over 60 Communist groups (Congressional Record May 29, 1968 pg. E4785).
We have learned from that same source that he secretly met with a Soviet spy at JFK Airport and that the FBI secured evidence that King was receiving large sums of money from a well-known American Communist agent who gave King instructions that he “implicitly” obeyed.
We have learned that King associated with known Communist activists including Abner Berry, a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party and writer for the Communist paper The Daily Worker, Aubrey Williams, Communist Party organizer, and Myles Horton, director of the Communist Highlander Folk School.
We have learned that convicted draft dodger, Communist homosexual co-founder of King’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Bayard Rustin, attended the 16th Convention of the Communist Party, USA in February, 1957 a month before he and King founded the SCLC.

Needless to say, none of the above is intended to demean the legacy or the memory of the greatest human being whom God decided to share with America.
Those details, however, may suggest that the Almighty has a weird sense of humor–and that Martin Luther King Day just may be a farcical exercise in national payback, the same nonsensical confession of White Guilt that helped elect and reelect Barack Obama as president, the same insanity that motivates our national media to obfuscate the truth concerning the explosion of black crime in our country.
Then, again, what’s a little farce, what’s a little senseless guilt, what’s a little MSM censorship contrasted against the possibility of upsetting 13% of the populace?
Supporters of Martin Luther King Day who are either oblivious of the above or who simply don’t want to be confused by facts will take solace in the realization Dr. King will surely be referenced early and often during February, the 37th annual celebration of Black History Month.
