Skip to comments.MLK tapes: Secret FBI recordings-Martin Luther King of watching/laughing as rape happened-40 affairs
Posted on 05/26/2019 6:26:43 AM PDT by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin
Secret FBI tapes that accuse Martin Luther King Jr of having extramarital affairs with '40 to 45 women' and even claim he 'looked on and laughed' as a pastor friend raped a parishioner, exist an author has claimed. The civil rights hero was also heard allegedly joking he was the founder of the 'International Association for the Advancement of P***y-Eaters'.
The shocking files could lead to a 'painful historical reckoning' for the man who is celebrated across the world for his campaign against racial injustice, according to one biographer. The FBI surveillance tapes detailing his indiscretions are being held in a vault at the U.S. National Archives and are not due for release until 2027. But David Garrow, a biographer of King who won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1987 book Bearing the Cross about the Baptist minister, has unearthed the FBI summaries of the various incidents.
In an article to be published in Standpoint, Garrow tells how the FBI planted transmitters in two lamps in hotel rooms booked by King in January 1964, according to The Sunday Times.

Wow, that was a great link from The Atlantic..!
FBI summaries that Garrow got his hands on (From where, could of been FOIA request) describes, in writing of course, what is on the tapes which are sealed until 2027. These are official FBI docs, not the National Enquirer (Although trusting FBI sources is on par with Globe Magazine).
“He was not the saint he was portrayed.”
No kidding? Is anyone?
“For all have fallen short....”
Yeah, I’m reluctant to join the bash band wagon, too.
If for no other reason, his example might slow down
a few ferals in their race to the bottom.
So many statues to tear down..Atlanta may burn...again....I thought the FBI didnt SPY on US Citizens??....Democrat President Kennedy & His AG Brother Robert were behind the mission to destroy MLK...FBI Hoover was a known pervert...Democrats were / are Racists....History...
Wait, wait, wait. He was heard allegedly joking about rapes or was he allegedly heard joking about rapes? The qualifiers in this article are about as confusing as a team of plow horses lined up to run the Kentucky Derby.
“This story has an agenda”
Agreed! Noticed that it came out in the British Daily Mail...
First, we’ll see how far this story goes in the US MSM, coming out over a long holiday weekend? Memorial Day! Thanks for the memories!
Second, whether true or not, MLK dirt may serve a distraction, probably for the DIM base. Get them prepared/agitated for upcoming revelations. Maybe, the C_A has transcripts of the Bamster ordering Comey/Brennan/Clapper to spy on Trump...or, maybe they have photos of Michael sans underwear?
Third, it might have been released by the Brits as a warning shot to Trump before Barr declassifies embarrassing info about GCHQ involvement in FISAgate?
Fourth, there might be other good reasons it popped up at this moment? However, it clearly was released for a reason TBD...
There was a lot of evil, disgusting racism in the 50s & 60s. Worse during the 30s. Shouldn’t be forgotten.
OTOH, a lot of us are tired of having Saint MLK shoved down our throats with a coating of ‘white men shouldn’t be allowed to exist’ on top of him.
Also: MLK was The REVEREND MLK, Jr. I don’t care about Trump’s affairs because he isn’t my preacher. But if my pastor was using hookers, he’d be fired. Those who lecture on morality and hold themselves up as morally special ought to at least meet the standards the vast majority of men meet. Such as, “Thou shalt not use hookers”...
Notice its UK press
Humanity ain’t about seducing 13 year old girls or beating up prostitutes, assuming those allegations are true. That sounds a lot like how Cracker slave masters were treating their in-house females, not the acts of a man of God.
Humanity ain’t about a married man, father, and proclaimed preacher screwing not one or two, but dozens and dozens of women and a plethora of prostitutes. That has nothing to do with feelings or love or humanity. It is the the behavior of a beast in heat. It is insatiable lust and power that contradicts his public spiel. This makes him a bit of a fraud.
His treatment of women and his duplicity on human rights is sadly noted.
Death is probably what saved both their reputations. The only new revelation about King is the rape story, which if true is a game changer in my opinion. The rest of it has been known for years. Even other civil rights icons still alive today have acknowledged this.
> FBI summaries that Garrow got his hands on... <
I understand. But summaries of what? Summaries of tapes showing MLK engaging in criminal acts? Or summaries of tapes showing FBI agents talking?
The article is not clear about that at all.
“King David (man after Gods own heart) did worse than MLK in having a man killed to conceal his lustful adulterous affair with Bathsheba.”
What King David did was made public knowledge and he suffered greatly for it. MLK Jr is said to poop flowers and no one is allowed to call him imperfect. I think it is the media image of MLK Jr that folks are dissing.
If I had been a black man in 1960, I’d have preferred Malcolm X to MLK. I find him a much more interesting person, and appreciate that folks admit he was a flawed human being.
Yes. Hammer-Nail. Good observation.
How did the author get the summary transcripts? Who gave them to him? Why now?
It smells near 100% like deflection, distraction, tainting.
Have to admit, deep state actors can come up with some good FF narratives.
Now praying Team Trump will descend on this author and question him, charge him and have a judge gag him.
I agree the timing is curious.
Something to consider is that the left has basically turned on MLK. They reject his idea of ~content of character~ mattering more than skin color. They want factionalized racial politics and MLK’s message conflicts with that. I could imagine many on the left delighting in seeing his reputation destroyed, because it would also mean the destruction of his idea.
It was probably the doings of some grumpy retired FBI agent that is sick and tired of not seeing any Caucasian or not presumably gay person in every single TV commercial.
Amen! It disgusts me that he’s the only American with a holiday named after him now. All the Presidents are lumped together in “Presidents’ Day.” The only other person who has a holiday named after him is Jesus Christ.
The truth about King is out there. There’s no excuse for anyone to be ignorant of it. He was a communist, a woman-beater, a rapist, and a plagiarizer. It annoys me when I’m reading a book and suddenly the author fawningly quotes King. It makes me feel like throwing the book across the room.
It’s well past time for the truth to come out and for everyone to stop worshipping this man as some sort of saint.
