MLK Day Mythology

It is MLK Day. The myth is strong. The myth has to be strong to cover for the reality. The myth of gentle, good MLK is so strong that today on facebook you will find blacks saying they liked Malcolm X better because he was harsher and mo' realer 'n' shit. They even question what MLK did to get anything done and argue Malcolm X got mo' done. (I'm quoting my black Facebook friends.) "By any means necessary" they cheer right now forgetting they are 13% of the population and in such disarray that their members all leave the community the moment they get any money. MLK did work for the high that used him.

The MLK myth is not for them but for whites. Whites have to see MLK as a saint. If they saw reality, well, what would become of the saint? King was a plagiarist, even academia and Wiki-liberals agree on that. MLK was a cheater that smacked hookers. Jackie Kennedy was on the record as saying she was disgusted by the sex parties King and his circle would have, and saw them beneath the elite. The FBI letters or calls to MLK to say "kill yourself" was because they knew he was a cheating hypocrite.

This cannot be in films like "Selma". It would ruin the myth. People forget the man was in his 30s when the elite were using him. He was not even 40 when he died. That also feeds into the myth. He was a tool of the elite with direct access to multiple presidents. LBJ was asking him for something to help pass the Civil Rights Act. He needed help, and the media elite gladly helped. He was no underdog, simply the low that the high used to break the middle.

Where did all of the money come from? King was good friends with Stanley Levison, communist and of course, Jew. Levison helped King in organization, speechwriting and other great things that made his cause progress. Now, who could get King all that money? Who could be the friendly go-between for the New York donors. This has to be downplayed because the myth requires organic, grassroots activism. The underdog has to triumph, not the useful pawn. The myth must be maintained.

I will quote from myself on the MLK statue fundraising problem. The black museum and MLK memorial was almost not approved due to fundraising shortfalls.
The myth is strong enough for the statue in D.C. The sad part about the statue is that the memorial had a $120 million fundraising target yet needed $10 mil from the US government and $25 million from the Chinese government to meet the fundraising goals. The Chinese completed the statue as it was designed by a Chinese designer. The memorial had large donations from major corporations, foundations and private names. Some big names like car manufacturers, the Gates Foundation and even Tommy Hilfiger and George Lucas dot the major donor list. 
Despite this, the MLK memorial nearly missed fundraising (and having their permit revoked) despite a multi-year campaign and $35 million from the US and Chinese government. The fundraising foundation could not accrue roughly $85 mil (a ceiling due to corp + foundation donations) from the American and especially the black community. It is not poverty but priorities that created the fundraising problem. Blacks spend between $7-9 billion per year on hair care products. Do the math. If those hair care companies had devoted 1% of sales to the MLK memorial in support for their customers, they would have met the fundraising goal in a little over one year. MLK's legacy is a monument designed and assembled by Chinese that some blacks grumble about but did not prevent because they needed Chinese money. The dream is in stone, even if someone else built and bought it.

Maybe they should have picked Malcolm X and picked up donations from regular black Americans? I doubt even that would have worked.

This gets us to our modern times where your kids do little write ups on MLK in school. The four or five sentence blurbs in grade school or four or five page papers in junior high never mention this. Education is our indoctrination centers. They are the Sunday Schools and seminaries. Forget reality, preach the good word. Reality complicates that, so forget reality.... but kids, don't you know Thomas Jefferson was evil because he owned slaves?

MLK Day is the religious holiday that Good Friday used to be. Atone for your sins, whitey. Give alms and wash the feet of your lessors. Heretics shall be subject to Inquisition.

Agree w/ all, but why did the man have him killed? James Earl Ray certainly did not do it.

LOL! It's always the same. Just like Joe Slovo, the Commie Jew in South Africa who was the organization behind that mediocre bomb-thrower Mandela (the MLK of Europe, because all white nations need an untouchable Black Saint). Other than the Haitian rebellion, there's really never a black rebellion. Lashing out, yeah. Riots, yeah. But no organized movements.

Figures such as MLK of course are a myth.

He's a figment for an ideal ------ there are many-upon-many of his followers who were more precise version of the MLK myth, as well as many-upon-many who talked the talk but walked in even more debauched walk after hours.

That is true for most such idealistic and ideological heroes; enshrinement isn't cover some sort-of 'real'absolution. Do the classic western heroes of Greece and Rome come without flaw? No, enshrinement TRANSFIGURES the flaw, adds sheen and heroic mist to self-indulgent transgression.

Do the schoolbooks mapping DeTocqueville American creation myth, via 'Democracy in America,' include anecdotes about the nightly swigs of moonshine and courtesan blowjobs? Better yet, are they really necessary?Fresh initiates don't need to have the sheen revealed so quickly; meanwhile, us big boys can handle 'the truth.' lol..

No, King was a template, a test balloon for a preposterous moral absolutism that by definition isn't supposed to be truly evident or by everyone obtainable. We all know this, yet the hypocrisies are supposed to reveal some larger and more pernicious lie.

It doesn't; at least not through the revealing some trope-defining figure's sins of the flesh.
