In Memoriam – Let’s Tell the Truth About the Murder of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rev Dr Martin Luther King, Jr

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered by the US federal government, not by James Earl Ray. Let’s stop lying about this and tell the truth.

Any school-age child can Google-up the truth about the King assassination, which reveals the US government’s scheme, so what’s the point of keeping a lid on it? Legitimacy for the US government? The US government has no legitimacy at this point in time anyway so, again, what’s the point of keeping the truth about Dr King’s murder a secret?

It’s time for many things to change in America, and for some things to stay the same.

I am with Dr King: America needs to live-up to it’s creed, which is found in the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Does any American have a problem with this? I don’t, and Dr King certainly didn’t.

Should we re-write the above for postmodern, theophobic America?

“We hold this opinion: that all humankind is the product of mere chance, that we are not endowed by any mythical “Creator” with certain unalienable Rights, but are granted by the government those rights which the government sees fit. Government can both grant and take away rights from humankind.”

Perhaps the federal government in Washington never should have allowed the King Memorial to be built. Not because it was made in China, but because there is no point to it. Dr King was a religious fanatic and all such religious fanaticism is out of fashion today. Americans are very busy killing people en masse the world over – as well as here at home –  so what in the world do we want to be reminded of Dr King for?

Today, in America, the most violent place for a black American is in her mother’s womb.

King loved America and hated war. King loved people and hated oppression. King loved eternal law and hated lawlessness. King thought we should get to know, rather than hate, one another. King thought of all peoples as being equal, not as some people being more equal than others (or above the law).

Some people – and governments – get away with murder, but they rarely build memorials to the slain victims of their crimes.

Not so with the Rev Dr. King. He now has a memorial, which the US federal government didn’t pay for but has allowed to be built.

My hope is that this memorial, and Dr King’s words, will come back to haunt the US federal government, very soon
