By the time you read this article, the American political and cultural establishment will be going through all the rituals of celebrating the holiest day in America’s secular religion: the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday.
It is on this day that we choose to commemorate the birthday of Michael King Jr., a Baptist preacher from Atlanta, Georgia and the most recognized leader of the so-called “Civil Rights Movement,” who is the only American who is honored by the state with his own personal national holiday.
The racialist blogosphere will be commemorating the MLK federal holiday by rehearsing the familiar critique: that King was a plagiarist, that he was a charlatan, that he was a playboy and a serial adulterer who failed to observe the Ten Commandments, that he was financed by the Jews, that he was a communist sympathizer, that he was surrounded by individuals who had ties to the communist movement.
All of these damaging accusations leveled against King are true … and they are all discussed in Taylor Branch’s three volume Pulitzer Prize winning history of the Civil Rights Movement: Parting the Waters: America in the King Years, 1954-63, Pillar of Fire: America in the King Years, 1963-65, and At Canaan’s Edge: America in the King Years, 1965-68.
In Glenda Elizabeth Gilmore’s Defying Dixie: The Radical Roots of Civil Rights, 1919-1950 and John Egerton’s Speak Now Against The Day: The Generation Before the Civil Rights Movement in the South, we are reminded that the segregationists were right and the Civil Rights Movement really was deeply rooted in Marxist tradition.
The Communist Party USA was agitating for “civil rights reform” before “the movement” was given its sanitized “mainstream” makeover in the 1950s. Martin Luther King, Jr became the public face of the “Civil Rights Movement” (which stretches back to the Plessy decision in 1896) following the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955.
W.E.B. Du Bois, who had been the recognized leader of the Civil Rights Movement since the Niagara Conference in 1905, died a communist in Africa the day before MLK gave his celebrated “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963. In commemorating MLK’s birthday, America forgets the radicalism of the movement that included such colorful revolutionary figures as Du Bois, Lovett Fort-Whiteman, A. Philip Randolph, Bayard Rustin, James Bevel, Stokley Carmichael, Malcolm X, and Diane Nash.
Is there anything further to be said about Martin Luther King, Jr. and his destructive legacy? The truth is that we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of the MLK legacy and its long term implications for America. The MLK story is still unfolding on the stage of world history.
The Chinese historians and social scientists of the 22nd century will study the present era in the United States – its political system, its economy, its culture – more intensely than any other topic in American history to discern how and why the most powerful and prosperous nation in world history embarked on the course of national suicide.

(44) You live in a society … where even Ron Paul swallows his pride and proclaims Martin Luther King, Jr. to be one of his personal heroes, a man who led the movement which resulted in the greatest expansion of central state power in American history, even though he voted against the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday.
(45) You live in a city … where powerful American corporations like Pepsi shower racial shakedown artists with millions of dollars.
In short, you live in a society where literally everything from religion to morality to culture to science to the political system to the capitalist economy has been hijacked, reconstructed, and subordinated since the year 1965 to the ideal of promoting African-Americans over Whites. Cartoons have not even escaped the Spirit of the Age.
Everything from the definition of justice and marriage to the nature of reality to the meaning of liberty and equality … it has all been changed in service of the radical utopian project of uplifting and promoting African-Americans to “equality” with Whites.
This includes even the ideals of “non-violence” and “universalism” and “colorblindness” which the revolution rode to power. Those ideals were quickly discarded after they had served their purpose. The champions of “colorblindness” and “non-violence” spun around on a dime and embraced “affirmative action” and “violence” as another means of promoting and exalting blacks.
In the Age of Obama, the peculiarities of the anti-White system have become more striking and explicit than ever before: White people are starting to awaken to the fact that they are living through a distinct and unusual phase of American history which is openly hostile to their interests, Black Run Amerika.
Black Run Amerika (1965-Present) is based on the fundamental premise that White America is wicked, reactionary, immoral, unjust, and illegitimate … something best tossed aside into the dustbin of history, as we plunge forward into the multicultural utopia and egalitarian nirvana of the coming millenarian age, where the assumption is taken for granted on the basis of faith that this rollercoaster ride will somehow work out in the end.
It is often forgotten that Martin Luther King, Jr. wasn’t the only Marxist-inspired African leader of his time. If Martin Luther King, Jr. were alive today, he would be celebrating his 83rd birthday. Nelson Mandela of South Africa is 93-years-old.
What happened to MLK’s peers like Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, Mengistu Mariam of Ethiopia, or Laurent Kabila of the Democratic Republic of Congo? How did freedom and equality work out in the sub-Saharan African countries which gained their independence around the time MLK was active in the United States?
Stay tuned to OD as we explore these topics and the “Dark Continent” in Black History Month 2012:
The statue of Laurent Kabila above, who patronized multiple mistresses and was assassinated like Martin Luther King, Jr. in 2001, was made in North Korea and now stands outside the Palais de la Nation in Kinshasa. This is what the infrastructure looks like today in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the 52nd year of black freedom and equality.
Perhaps it is time to reassess the MLK legacy … before his heir Barack Hussein Obama gets reelected and America collapses in a similar manner.
Update: It wouldn’t be MLK Day without a drive-by shooting.
Note: “The Chastain Challenge” has been postponed until tomorrow. Actual Black Run Congo has plunged to the absolute rock bottom of the world pecking order in terms of human development. Its only competitors on the honor roll of failed states are Somalia, Chad, and Sudan.
