Every biography I ever read of J. Edgar Hoover notes that King, who met
Hoover twice, was very compliant, toned down and "polite" in Hoover's
presence. Why? Because King, knowing how much was on the line, knowing how
much would be lost if his own stature was compromised, knowing how much
members of the Civil Rights movement trusted him and his leadership,
knowing FBI was watching his every move, nonethless allowed himself to be
compromised and blackmailed by Hoover and LBJ with his escapades with
hookers in various motel rooms. On one tape, a woman says to him "Dr. King,
you shouldn't be here" to which King replies, "It's okay, tonight I'm just
King was a narcissist, a showman, a megalomaniac, a hypocrite full of
himself. His message of "non-violence" was exactly what "Mister Charlie"
wanted and needed and still embraces as they do all sorts of violence daily
to African Americans. And his "Negro Bourgeois family" still treats his
name as what it was--a commodity--for which they still charge huge sums
just to use his name and likeness--increasingly on commercials of Fortune
500 who do all sorts of ugly violence daily all over the world.
King would not have made a pimple on Malcolm X's (who is never mentioned)
ass. MLK Day makes me sick and when you see all the reactionaries who
embrace it and JKing, it tells you exactly what and whom King served all
along--in addition to his excessive ego and self-created personna.
