MLK: Quiz for the Holy Day

Annual 2019 Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day History Quiz
Due to discrimination and persistent anti-Black bias, too many Americans don't know enough about this great man.  Try these quiz questions and you can see how little the schools, news media and establishment have told you about the only American with his own holiday.
1) Name the judge who has sealed King's FBI surveillance file until the year 2027.
A) The Honorable John Lewis Smith, Jr.
2) According to whose 1989 biography did King spend his last night on earth in an adulterous liaison after delivering his "Mountaintop" speech in Memphis?
A) Reverend Ralph Abernathy in And the Walls Came Tumbling Down states that King slept with two different women in succession.
3) According to whose 1989 biography did King spend his last morning on earth physically beating a woman?
A)   Reverend Ralph Abernathy in And the Walls Came Tumbling Down.  Rev. Abernathy had been described as King's closest associate – prior to his book being published.
4) How did other civil rights leaders respond to Abernathy's public revelation of King's behavior?
A) The Reverend Jesse Jackson (model of virtue himself), Reverend Andrew Young and NAACP president Reverend Benjamin Hooks signed, along with 25 others, a statement accusing Abernathy of "a dreary attempt to diminish the life and work of the only [Emphasis added.] spiritual genius America has produced."  People Magazine, Volume 32, Number 18.  William Raspberry, black syndicated journalist, called it "the betrayal of a trusting friend."

The journalist credo of "the people's right to know" only extends so far, you know.
5) Who was the U.S. Attorney General who ordered the FBI to wiretap King?
A) Robert F. Kennedy. See David Garrow's biography Bearing the Cross.
6) Who was the Assistant Director of the FBI who wrote a letter to Sen. John P. East (R-NC) describing King's conduct of "orgiastic and adulterous escapades, some of which indicated that King could be bestial in his sexual abuse of women."
A) Charles D. Brennan
7) Who called King a "hypocrite preacher."
A) President Lyndon B. Johnson

8) What U.S. newspaper reported that King had plagiarized his doctoral thesis at Boston University.
A) The Wall Street Journal on November 9, 1990. In 1991, The Journal of American History admitted that "plagiarism was a general pattern evident in nearly all of his academic writings." The Wall Street Journal only printed the story after it was all over Europe following the coverage in the London Sunday Telegraph of December 3, 1989. The Wall Street Journal article forced other American media outlets to cover the story.
9) Whom did King plagiarize in more than 50 complete sentences in his doctoral thesis?
A) Dr. Jack Boozer of Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.
10) Who was the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities who purposely suppressed knowledge of King's plagiarism of his doctoral thesis?

11) What was Martin Luther King's real name?

12) In his first public sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in 1947 who did King plagiarize?
A) Reverend Harry Emerson Fosdick, a prominent liberal pastor in the early 20th Century.
13) Name the man who served as King's personal secretary from 1955 to 1960, joined the Young Communists League at New York City College in 1936, went to prison for draft evasion in 1944, and in 1953 was sentenced to 60 days in jail in California for "lewd vagrancy and homosexual perversion."
A) Bayard Rustin.
14) According to whom had King "privately described himself as a Marxist."
A)   His biographer, David J. Garrow.
15)  To whom did King write the following:
"I imagine you already know that I am much more socialistic in my economic theory than capitalistic… [Capitalism] started out with a noble and high motive… but like most human systems it fell victim to the very thing it was revolting against. So today capitalism has out-lived its usefulness."
A)     Letter to Coretta Scott, July 18, 1952 during their courtship.
16) Who edited King's book Stride Toward Freedom?
A)   Communist Stanley Levison. He often was a ghostwriter for King. Although Jewish and Communist (active at least up to 1957) he was a key member of the Southern CHRISTIAN Leadership Conference (SCLC) where disbelief in Christ was no impediment. 

The SCLC official web site states: "At its first convention in Montgomery in August 1957, the Southern Leadership Conference adopted the current name, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Basic decisions made by the founders at these early meeting included the adoption of nonviolent mass action as the cornerstone of strategy, the affiliation of local community organizations with SCLC across the South, and a determination to make the SCLC movement open to all, regardless of race, religion, or background."
But the name CHRISTIAN was thought useful.
17) Who made the following speech?
"That's exactly what we mean--from every mountain side, let freedom ring. Not only from the Green Mountains and White Mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire; not only from the Catskills of New York; but from the Ozarks in Arkansas, from Stone Mountain in Georgia, from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia--let it ring not only for the minorities of the United States, but for the disinherited of all the earth–may the Republican party, under God, from every mountainside, LET FREEDOM RING!"
A)   Archibald Carey, Jr., at the 1952 Republican National Convention. Carey and King knew each other and corresponded. You can hear the actual Carey address on the net at: 
18) What student of the Gospel wrote the following concerning the physical resurrection of Christ from the dead? "From a literary, historical, and philosophical point of view this doctrine raises many questions. In fact, the external evidence for the authenticity of this doctrine is found wanting."

A) This was written by student Martin Luther King, Jr., while studying at Crozer Theological Seminary, Chester, Pennsylvania.
19) What student of the Gospel wrote the following concerning the virgin birth of Christ? "[I]t seems downright improbable and even impossible for anyone to be born without a human father.... First we must admit that the evidence for the tenability of this doctrine is to [sic] shallow to convince any objective thinker."
A) Written by Martin Luther King, Jr., while studying at Crozer Theological Seminary.
20) What student of the Gospel wrote the following concerning the reliability of the Old Testament: "If we accept the Old Testament as being 'true' we will find it full of errors, contradictions, and obvious impossibilities–as that the Pentateuch was written by Moses."
A) Written by Martin Luther King, Jr., while studying at Crozer Theological Seminary.
21) What civil rights historian pointed out that King probably got preferential treatment at white schools as opposed to historically black schools?
A) Ralph Luker pointed out that King averaged C+ at historically black Morehouse College. At Crozer Theological Seminary he averaged an A-.
22) What national journalist said that the people don't have any right to know about King's infidelities (and presumably other short-comings) and that the media should simply "print the legend."
A) Bryant Gumbel.
23) Who said:
"Mr. Abernathy and King were many things to each other - colleagues in the black church, cellmates, strategists, co-conspirators for justice - but at the personal level, they were best friends. But in friendships in which one person greatly outshines the other, a curious mixture of love, envy and competition can sometimes lead to a lingering, often unspoken resentment. Mr. Abernathy's reasons for providing a detailed description of his friend's last evening and early morning - during which King had sexual encounters with two women and a confrontation with a third close woman companion - can be known only to him. It is sadly ironic that the disclosures will almost surely do more damage to Mr. Abernathy himself than to the reputation of King."
A)   Henry Hampton, producer of the PBS documentary "Eyes on the Prize," in a review in The New York Times.
24) The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sent King a letter which apparently also included a tape of one of his sexual escapades.  Here is an excerpt:

"Listen to yourself you filthy, abnormal animal. You are on the record. You have been on the record — all your adulterous acts, your sexual orgies extending far into the past. This one is but a tiny sample. You will understand this. Yes, from your various evil playmates on the east coast to [redacted] and others on the west coast and outside the country you are on the record. King, you are done."
The corporate media states that the letter was intended to make King commit suicide.  What was the information which could have caused him to commit suicide?
A) Guess we will have to wait until the complete FBI files are released in 2027 - if ever.
25) Have these issues troubled the establishment King worshipers?
A)         What do you think? Why?
No questions correct means you are exactly the kind of citizen your masters desire.
1 - 5 questions correct means you could be dangerous.
6 - 10 questions correct means you need electro-convulsive therapy.
11 - 15 questions correct means you are a hater.
16 or more questions correct means you are a terrorist. Turn yourself in now for re-education and your life may be spared.
Happy Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
and slain civil rights leader
Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

I had BBQ'd ribs today to celebrate,avoided my local gym(blacks kids out of school--too much hassle) and watched Lesta point out another blackface "outrage" on NNN.
Quite a day.
I perused Breitbart and saw all the craziness being exhibited about the MAGA kids.Some of the highlights:Kathy Griffin went nuts,Alyssa Milano went nuts("the MAGA hat is the new white hood.")Hakeem Jeffries called Trump "a Grand Wizard",Sharpton complained that Trump only spent two minutes at the MLK statue ("an insult"),Tim Kaine and Joe Biden REMAINED nuts ("the shutdown is the result of hatred"),Debra Messing called the Covington kids,"disrespecting a**holes."
I can't believe what's happening,Why have whites collectively flipped their lids in large numbers?The Covington kids give some hope for sane thinking--the rest of it makes me think a Civil War is just around the corner.
What country is this?
(Btw,Trump sided with the kids).

As with most (99%)of what blacks say,you find that MLK is a lie as well.Deception is their game.How else could they have POSSIBLY gotten the honor of a Federal Holiday named for him,without a rewrite of what MLK was really like.
Trump spent two minutes commemorating--two minutes too long--and wasted.

I find my self fascinated with the way the MAGA hat kids story is still unfolding. Today the angle on AOL, in an article reposted from Huffington, is to declare that a "new" video that has surfaced "complicates" the story.
Gotta love the damage control wording that steers attention away from the knee jerk initial reporting. First off, the video is not "new", multiple videos were shot at the same time and uploaded to Youtube and other websites almost immediately. Using the word "new" implies they have information they didn't previously have but the video they cut and pasted from is available online and clearly shows much more than the bits they broadcast initially. It's possible the people that shot that video sent selected excerpts to reporters so they didn't have the full video right away but you'd think a legit news outlet would demand to see the entire video before broadcasting it.

If the media was being honest they'd say the full video "contradicts" the early reports rather than it "complicates" the story.

Still waiting for a headline story somewhere that directs attention to the true villains: The racist black Israelites. While they are getting mention in the body of the articles they are not being focused on they way the boys still are. One has to point out: If white "preachers" hurled the kind of racist abuse toward black people on the street or anywhere it would be a media firestorm and every hypocritical virtue signalling politician or celeb would pile on.

Those professors that awarded King his PhD said even if they had KNOWN King had faked his thesis he still would have gotten the PhD. How can that be??

Now that's a great quiz there! I've been researching the "Saint Who Ain't", and I got about half the answers right.
