The FBI in the 60s says it all...You must have read an old co-intelpro operations guide..Nothing here really. Just the cross dresser's evil bidding.

Communist sympathizers of the time thought the cause was noble. They barely knew the actual push behind the cause and the final results that were desired in general.

Dr. MLK Jr. was a republican.

MLK Sr. was a Republican but endorsed Kennedy in 1960. Not sure what Jr.'s registration was, although he worked with both parties to get his agenda forward.

It's a little more complicated than that. Some of King's associates really were Communists and Communists really were bad, or at least deeply, deeply deluded.

But to imply King was a communist or fellow traveler is just paranoia of the worst sort.

It's not more complicated than that..The OP implies that King, Jr. was a communist based on FBI reporting from the 60s which we know much of was fabricated. Dis-information was their trademark in the 60s. They sought to discredit King, Jr. by any means neccassary. Imperfect he was but communist he was not.

I'm so tired of "associates"..

MLK is one of the greatest political leaders in all of history. Greater than Washington, Lenin, or Lincoln. How can I say this, you ask? MLK liberated his people and changed the world without firing a shot. The only others who accomplished this on such a scale are Gandhi, Siddhartha Gautama, and Jesus Christ. Bitter irony how all of these save Buddha died violently for their great deeds. It speaks volumes to Orwell's allegation that hate is indeed more enduring than love. Also testament to the possibility that far down the road homo sapiens will be denoted as a curious short lived species that was discarded by natural selection.

if letting 43 million americans go without medical care
giving our jobs to illegals
refusing to defend our borders
bank bailouts welfare for the rich
fake wars making DOD once again rich
creating a private army, blackwater at taxpayers expense
if opposing these things is communism.
