As the secret JFK files are exposed to the world, it appears that a 20-page document, dated March 12, 1968, is included in the newest trove of government documentation regarding President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Inside these files, are other disclosed hidden events such as Martin Luther King Jr.’s possible communist connection. Not to mention, what happened just three weeks before King was assassinated in Memphis.
On Nov. 3, 2017, the FBI released records containing affirmations about the political and personal life of the late Martin Luther King Jr. These reports were collected during a period when the FBI surveilled and endeavored to ruin the Reputation of the civil rights leader.
The Alleged Fervent Communist Connection
According to the JFK files, King’s political ideologies were heavily influenced by Marxism. The archives dig in deeper and exposed that the creation of his civil rights organization, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, was intensely impacted by communists, notably the Socialist Party USA.
The FBI records broadly expounded on one of King’s most-reliable advisers, Stanley Levison, a New York legal adviser and specialist. Levison filled in as a top agent for the Communist Party. However, this occurred a long time before he met King, in 1956.
Even though there was no proof of Levison having additional binds to the Communist Party USA, the FBI utilized his previous communist history to defend bugs and wiretaps on his workplaces. They did the same for the place of work and hotel rooms of King. Still, J. Edgar Hoover, the former FBI Director had long connected the civil rights association with Marxism. Plus, they sturdily anticipated that Levison would help or deploy King to arouse political unrest inside the United States.
As stated by The Washington Post, the recently published JFK files labeled King as “a whole-hearted Marxist who has studied [Marxism], have faith in it and agrees with it, but because of his being a minister of religion, does not dare to promote it publicly.”
It was no secret that there was bad blood between Hoover and King. In fact, the animosity ran deep. In April 1964, things even intensified. Especially, after King mentioned that the FBI was “totally ineffectual in resolving the continued mayhem and brutality inflicted upon the Negro in the Deep South.” It was not until months later that Hoover addressed this statement. In a bit of a rage, Hoover mentioned at a news conference that King was the “most notorious liar in the country.”
Instead of trying to disgrace the so-called Communists who they believed were trying to impact Dr. King, Hoover made sure that the Agency adopted an analytical method of trying to humiliate the supposed target of Communist Party attraction — Dr. King himself, as stated by the committee’s account.
Sexual Fanatic or FBI-Created Lies?
Nevertheless, the files do not just expose King’s advocacy as a communist, but also his addiction to sex. There are documents within the released JFK data that paints King as a man obsessed with a strange sexual appetite. The most scandalous allegations about King’s sex life are comprised of a dense collection of claims in the concluding two pages of the FBI report.
At a February 1968 seminar to coach clerics in inner-city leadership, it is suspected: “One Negro minister in attendance later expressed his disgust with the behind-the-scene drinking, fornication, and homosexuality that went on at the session.”
The JFK files go on to mention the following: “Several Negro and white prostitute[s] were brought in from the Miami area. An all-night sex orgy was held with these prostitutes and some of the delegates.” The article claimed that King, in January of 1964, likewise interlocked in a “two-day drunken sex orgy” in Washington. It appears that the documents point out that at the occasion, one of the females was not happy about performing an unnatural act.
The documents state that King and other males present, white and black, talked about how this young woman needed to be taught and introduced into this type of sexual behavior. Nevertheless, others argue that these files were a failed made up attempt of discrediting King’s name, to diminish his civil rights appeal.
The Washington Spring Project
Many parts of the 20-page text are concerned with King’s approach to the “Washington Spring Project,” which was arranged for the coming months. It cautioned that despite King’s past, calling for nonviolent protests, “the collective forces of the communist influence and the black nationalists advocating violence give the ‘Washington Spring Project’ a promise for an explosive situation.”
Could this have been what sealed King’s death? There is not any evidence. However, King was killed before the planned march.
