King's Anguish When He Condemned U.S. War Crimes and Foreign Policy Worthy of Emulation
A call for activists to make frequent use of the words of Martin Luther King Jr in his 1967 speech "Beyond Vietnam", condemning the U.S. war in Vietnam and its violent foreign policy toward countries in the third world. Being that the entire speech is relevant to our deathly predicament today, and King's stature being such that his outcry and accusations if often quoted could have a belated effect on foreign policy.

MLK Was Murdered Exactly One Year After Condemning U.S. Imperialist War and Capitalism
It is widely believed that King's condemnation of imperialist war madness and the capitalist "insanity of putting profit above humanity" cost him his life and cost the U.S. the loss of his much 'too effective' leadership. Historian Howard Zinn supports awakening Americans today by quoting from King's "Beyond Vietnam" speech. Read UN Ambassador Andrew Young testimony in the King family's successful Memphis conspiracy trial.

Corporate Media Keeps King "in his place"! Buries King's Fiery Condemnation of US Wars King thundered eloquently against U.S. genocidal imperialist wars, international predatory capitalism, factually denounced CIA overseas crimes, the cruel indifference and blind immorality of America. Corporate media blocks public knowledge of the fury of King's outcry over U.S. wars of occupation and the powerful and vehement anti war pronouncements from his Beyond Vietnam speech, that made bold headlines news around the world

Anti-war Alternate Media Again Allows 'Big Brother' to Handkerchief King Holiday
Tragically, progressive community's editors and writers, including Afro-American writers, again did NOT take advantage of the national holiday to feature martyred King's 1967 -68 anti-war, anti-imperialism, anti-international predatory capitalism speeches which since his assassination remain completely media suppressed from public attention; did NOT seek to publicize King's thundering condemnations into public awareness. Why?

Black History Month Ignored MLKJr. Condemnation of U.S. Wars, Predatory Capitalism
What keeps even black leaders from quoting Rev. King Jr.' '67 condemnations of U.S. wars and predatory trade? Why does no highly profiled American pick up where King left off? Quoting words of the only American allotted the national recognition of a public holiday honoring his birth, dangerous? Almost like quoting the bible. "My country, greatest purveyor of violence in the world! Silence is treason! Everyone must protest!"

MLK at 79 Would Still be Debating the Slaughters and Lies of Capitalist Imperialism
Corporate media blocks public knowledge of the fury of King's outcry over U.S. wars of occupation and the powerful indictment of his government in his Beyond Vietnam speech, that made bold headlines in newspapers around the world. OpEdNews has highlighted ten Jay Janson articles which review King's, now media buried, thundering imperialist war condemnations in context with current events King was not permitted to live to see.

Media Suppression of MLKjr's Condemnation of Vietnam War as an Atrocity Helps McCain
King's blistering condemnation of the Vietnam War as a crime against humanity, which made bold type headlines on the front pages of newspapers all over the world BEFORE McCain's 1st bombing mission, has been intentionally suppressed in commercial media and school books. If voters knew King's sermon on the true history of the heroic Vietnamese fighting invasions of 3 powerful nations, McCain's 'hero status' would evaporate.

Shock Rev. Wright's Critics with Quotes from Rev. King Jr.' "Beyond Vietnam!"
Two clips of Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.' sermons heard and seen on PBS Bill Moyers Journal contained the thrilling recounting of failed immoral governments of empires throughout history that preceded his "God Damn! America", and the detailed list of government offenses against God and his people that followed the "Damn!" Best shock tactic to counter the media's deception is to quote King Jr.' condemnations out of context!!

Help Obama by Reading MLKing Speech Condemning Murderous US Foreign Policy
 If enough Americans could become familiar with King's dream for a peaceful, kind and benevolent American foreign policy and King's condemnation of decades of brutal past policies, it will be easier for Obama to create one with their support and in spite of opposition from the hawks and war promoting corporate media. Help Obama! Read or listen to King's speech "Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break Silence" on the Internet!

APRIL 4! ANNIVERSARY OF ASSASSINATION and ANTI-WAR OUTCRY Excerpts - An Obama Must Read
It has often been suggested that we reread King's Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break Silence substituting Afghanistan and Iraq for each time Vietnam is referred to. But in parts of this sermon herein quoted King speaks to a time beyond the end of the war that brought him to cry out against in aguish insisting a breaking of our silence to demand moral change - one year to the day on which he was shot dead.

Jeremiah Wright Repeats MLKjr Condemning Predatory Capitalism's War on 3rd World
 King's speech condemning the Vietnam War was vilified by the NY Times, ABC, et al as treasonous, Wright pilloried in commercial media as anti-American. Both men base condemnation of violence on love. Both had the same divinity school teacher. Comparison with King's thundering during his 1967 "Beyond Vietnam" is obvious.The peace movement has a charismatic celebrity religiously following in King Jr.' footsteps! Read & Compare!

MLK in 1967, "America is Approaching Spiritual Death!" (2011, America is Spiritually Dead)
Amrica loves napalm. Obama jokes his Hellfire Predator Drones will gettcha if you're not careful "you won't know what hit you." Amerka loves killing other nation's bad guys. Amerika hails hero politicians who served killing Vietnamese. NY Times, Wash Post called King a traitor, America reads on. Americans want to keep killing Yemeni, Pakistani, Somali, Afghani collaterally from the sky. Our HenryFord loved Hitler & vice versa.

Imploring OWS to Protect Themselves by Hailing REV. KING'S Condemnation of Wall St.'s Wars
OWS Oakland, anti-war demonstrating Iraq veteran head bashed in during police attack.If protesters had been holding photos of revered US national hero Reverend Dr. King and banners quoting King condemning Wall Street creating wars for "unjust overseas predatory investments while withholding investing in America at home," police would not have had the stomach or nerve to beat and attack with dangerous crowd control weapons.

 2011   Unveiling The Monument But NOT King's Condemnation Of U.S. Wars for Wall St.How do the vibrant with emotion eulogies of King's daughter, sister, son, and two men who held the dying King in their arms (and went on to successful political careers), sound to the demonstrators of Occupy Wall St., when all mention of King's condemnation of U.S. wars and the "unjust predatory investments they meant to maintain" is calculatedly omitted. "Silence is betrayal!" cried out King at Riverside Church in 1967. click here

Protecting OWS Demonstrators with Martin Luther King Jr. Words and Image
As Zinn did, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark urges use of Martin Luther King's words and image as the most powerful tool for international unity promoting humanity's awareness of its capability to make wars unacceptable, AND AS PROTECTION from NATIONAL HERO KING DURING THE COMING WALL ST. COUNTERATTACK, for awareness of his condemning "unjust predatory overseas investments" of Wall Street

King Would Have Stopped Vietnam and TODAY'S WARS as He Stopped Segregation!
King today, would be fighting against the wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and a war on Iran. Blacks would be in the forefront with him. Blacks are dying in greater numbers than their percentage of the population today just as they did in Vietnam. King would see the war against terror as just as phony as the war on communism, would again denounce CIA support for predatory investments in cheap labor abroad.

King Would be Marching on Wall St. Where Wars Are Made - Not in Washington
Occupy Wall Street organizers are saying, why complain to congressmen when you can complain to the financial backers they are beholden to obey? Why beg the President when you can make trouble for the Wall Street VIPs that own him? Eventually, a critical mass of the public will awaken to what King awoke to.

King Who Condemned US Wars Again Betrayed by War-Supporting Clergy's Praise
 We have just witnessed the annual birthday highlighted betrayal of Rev. King, with clergy leading the way, a betrayal of what King taught and was dedicated to when he was assassinated, namely, exposing the US overseas crimes against humanity for predatory investments, that were draining away men, money and resources.A review of clergy support of all US Wars no matter how blatantly unjust as if the 1967 King had never existed.
