History is resplendent with mischaracterizations and even intentional cover-ups so as not to endanger or embarrass the participants who might still be alive today. Even the great heritage of nations has been known to fall contrary to the whim of truth rather than the legendary status afforded to the tale by those who would rather we did not know the truth! The sacred cows of history are supposed to be those figures of such great achievement that we not dare to tarnish their reputation lest the reality of interfering with the past be revealed and the true character of such great personalities that had an impact in great acts be discredited!
Anatomy of an illusion
Such is the case with one Doctor Martin Luther King who has been canonized by many Americans for his place in history as a civil rights leader and promoter of peaceful solutions in the face of violent protests from both sides of the riot lines drawn by police. Ultimately. Martin Luther King’s accomplishments led to the establishment of humane treatment and equality for American blacks who had been denied this opportunity by Democrat Party politicians who had refused to pass civil rights legislation decades earlier by their Republican counterparts even being responsible for the formation of the infamous Klu Klux Klan who had terrorized American negroes since the days after the Civil War.
Sacred Cows in American history though tend to run afoul of the facts and do not always live up to the pedestals of personal conduct attributed to them by historians often for political reasons. President John F. Kennedy was exposed for being a voracious womanizer. Great inventor Thomas Edison was proven to have stolen patents from inventor, Nikola Tesla. Former President and Supreme Commander of Allied Forces, Dwight Eisenhower supposedly had an affair with a younger woman while his wife was campaigning for the war effort which led to several embarrassing public displays conveniently overlooked.
As I say not as I do
Thomas Jefferson, one of the founding father of our nation, an accomplished architect and philosopher allegedly fathered several children with his black slave nanny at his estate. Einstein, the famed author of the “Theory of Relativity” was discovered to have given up an ill daughter for adoption. Several of America’s richest families such as the Vanderbilts and Morgans were discovered to have financed well respected endowments and Charitable Trusts dedicated to education that plotted to transform the public classroom into an indoctrination facility for socialism and government manipulation of the young child’s mind under the John Dewey doctrine!
In a book written by one of Doctor King’s valued entourage who had faithfully appeared in public lectures as well as in the midst of confrontations during racial rioting Doctor Ralph Abernathy wrote an autobiography about his life and experiences with Martin Luther King along with his crusade to achieve civil rights. Doctor Abernathy loved King, but was conflicted by his mentor’s conduct behind the scenes and revealed this years later after he had parted ways with the civil rights movement and began giving interviews on his own. Unlike such followers as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton with questionable merits and what would come to be despicable attempts at cashing in on the works of Martin Luther King as the years rolled on and they began losing relevance as times changed, Doctor Abernathy relegated himself to improving the scholastic standards of black Americans so that they could become competitive in intellectual pursuits and technical careers.
Divulging the truth
What Doctor Abernathy revealed in his biography was covered up or overlooked for decades after it was published thanks to the politically correct hypocrisy of the left and a US media dedicated to preserving that illusion! According to Abernathy Martin Luther King has what was termed as a bestial obsession with Caucasian prostitutes! As a matter of fact, King went to great lengths to ensure that all those in his entourages were well accommodated with white prostitutes whether his congregation was in the US or oversees. Ralph Abernathy described one incident in Sweden when the King followers flew in and Martin Luther King spent more time making prostitution arrangements for his people than spreading his all prophetic message of equality to the point of embarrassment to himself and his followers!
Achilles heel of sin
Abernathy’s revelations are corroborated by the efforts of one J. Edgar Hoover, legendary FBI Director, who meticulously recorded Doctor Martin Luther King’ sexual exploits through the eavesdropping and electronic bugging of hotel rooms where the lurid encounters were committed and preserved for posterity on tape. According to sources, they reveal a troubling contradiction to the supposedly high Christian moral standards espoused by Martin Luther King in his moral advocacy and reputation as a preacher!
What of his wife?
This went on as his well respected wife often campaigned in his absence accompanied by either her children or friends of the King family as she too spread the message of racial coexistence within not just American society, but all societies in the world. It is quite ironic nowadays as character assassination of many well-known celebrities and political figures has been achieved through the unwelcome revelations of their sexual misconduct and even sexual harassment of women. If this unsavory behavior had come to light today and Martin Luther King had not been assassinated it would have cast a dark shadow upon the man’s character as it has upon such political figures as Bill Clinton. The hypocrisy is most definitely problematic. Did she know?
Today’s climate of compromise
It seems that the left has given American black athletes and performers a wide berth when it comes to sexual indiscretion. NFL players battering their wives and girlfriends have been often times covered up or met with little repercussion. It seems the victimization card often trumps some of the worst abuses that have been suffered by black women often beaten, abandoned, and left with children by the supposed dazzling personalities their indiscretions quietly pushed under the rug with out of court cash settlements. However, today Hollywood, the US media, the NFL, and Democrat party all work in consort with each other whenever possible to preserve their sacred cows and social influence at the expense of the truth and history as we know it.
