In 1999, there was a trial that presented evidence of State involvement
in the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King. The State was found guilty, at
all levels: local, state and fed. Put that it your pipe and toke it up.
"In answer to the question did Loyd Jowers participate in a conspiracy to
do harm to Dr. , your answer is yes. Do you also find that others,
including governmental agencies, were parties to this conspiracy as alleged
by the defendant? Your answer to that one is also yes. And the total
amount of damages you find for the plaintiffs entitled to is one hundred
dollars. Is that your verdict? -The Honorable James E. Swearengen
(Division 4, judge presiding
"yes"- the jury
So why exactly did the govt kill MLK? Maybe because he said things like
A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military
defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death... We can no longer afford to worship the god of hate or bow
before the altar of retaliation. The oceans of history are made turbulent
by the ever-rising tides of hate. History is cluttered with the wreckage
of nations and individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate.
--Martin Luther King
Here are some excerpts of the closing statement made by Dr. Pepper.
"When Martin King opposed the war, when he rallied people to oppose the
war, he was threatening the bottom lines of some of the largest defense
contractors in this country. This was about money. When he threatened
to bring that war to a close through massive popular opposition, he was
threatening the bottom lines of some of the largest construction
companies, one of which was in the State of Texas, that patronized the
Presidency of Lyndon Johnson and had the major construction contracts at
Cam Ran Bay in Vietnam. This is what Martin King was challenging. He was
challenging the weapons industry, the hardware, the armament industries,
that all would lose as a result of the end of the war". -Dr. William
Pepper, Attorney for King Family
"On behalf of the family of Martin Luther King, Jr., on behalf of the
people of the United States, I ask you to find for the plaintiff and find
that conspiracy existed and that those conspirators involved not only the
defendant here but we're dealing in conspiracy with agents of the City of
Memphis and the governments of the State of Tennessee and the United
States of America.
We ask you to find that conspiracy existed and once and for all give this
plaintiff family justice and let's cleanse this city and this nation of the
ignorance that has pervaded this case for so long. Let the truth reign in
this courtroom once and for all.
Along with arranging for the assassination, CIA and military disclosure
confirm that corporate media collude with political “leadership” to
disinform the American public on strategic military, policy, and economic
issues. This answers the question why corporate media have not covered
the civil trial and verdict for MLK’s assassination." -Dr. William Pepper
The sixties was the beginning of the rise of the propaganda state in the
US, and the media circus.
Science, like all else, was no longer a matter of sober research and
rigorous work, it was a
matter of public relations. - Miles Mathis
It seems that the circus rumbles on-
"manufacturing consent is the name of the game, the bottom line is money, nobody gives a f*#k" - System of a Down
So maybe, instead of focusing on the 'civil rights' work of MLK, we could all look and think a little bit deeper and really understand the 'writing on the wall'. 'Cause you can bet on the fact that you won't hear this story on the Propaganda War Machine News Media. Peace.
