Martin Luther King was a pastor and political activist whose moral stance in the US in the 1960s posed a serious challenge to the US deep state. Now feted by the US government, although the US legal process conceded in 1999 that he was assassinated by the same government.

“A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right, a man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice, a man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.”
MLK (1965)  [1]

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was a key figure in the 1960s in USA. A popular proponent of non-violence, he was spied upon by the deep state who saw danger in his popularity and refusal to be cowed by their threats. He was assassinated on 4 April 1968. At the time, the killing was blamed on a "lone nut", although a 1999 civil trial by jury concluded that he had been killed by a conspiracy including agents of the US government.

Opposition by the US Deep state

The US Deep state recognised that MLK was a man of integrity of great charisma, with large ambitions to facilitate social change who might be difficult to control. They therefore used assets in the US governments to frustrate him.[2]

FBI Harassment

Martin Luther King was subject to harassment from the FBI, who wrote him an anonymous note, suggesting that he commit suicide. They also termed him, in a now declassified internal memo, "the most dangerous negro... in the country".

When other tactics failed, the US Deep state resorted to assassination. They developed a plan to assassinate him in California[citation needed]. However, the ongoing plan to assassinate RFK lead them to change it to Memphis, so as to avoid having two murders so close in both time and space. Martin Luther King was assassinated exactly one year after condemning U.S. imperialist wars, covert violence and capitalism in a New York sermon that made bold headlines in newspapers around the world.

1999 Civil trial

The official narrative (according to a 1999 lawsuit brought by Dr. William Pepper in Memphis) is that Martin Luther King was assassinated by a conspiracy involving unnamed members of the US government. This was a remarkable lapse for a system usually able to control such official pronouncements. The commercially-controlled media showed a pronounced disinterest at the time, and have ignored or tried to undermine the jury's unanimous verdict ever since.


“He who lives with untruth lives in spiritual slavery. Freedom is still the bonus we receive for knowing the truth.”
MLK [5]

“A doctrine of black supremacy is as dangerous as a doctrine of white supremacy. God is not interested in the freedom of black men or brown men or yellow men. God is interested in the freedom of the whole human race, the creation of a society where every man will respect the dignity and worth of personality.”
MLK [6]


Quotes by MLK

Fear“We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”
Love“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
MLK/Assassination“If physical death is the price that I must pay to free my white brothers and sisters from a permanent death of the spirit, then nothing can be more redemptive.”
Restorative justice“Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”
