Furthermore, Dr. King can only antagonize opinion in this country instead of winning recruits to the peace movement by recklessly comparing American military methods to those of the Nazis testing "new medicine and new tortures in the concentration camps of Europe." The facts are harsh, but they do not justify such slander. Furthermore, it is possible to disagree with many aspects of United States policy in Vietnam without whitewashing Hanoi.
Various Newspaper articles denounced King as a traitor, a disgrace to his race, and his shaming the civil rights movement.
Civil Rights Leaders, Progressives, Family, Will Again
Betray Martin Luther King on His Birthday TV specials of criminal deception!
King's outrage, hellish descriptions of US atrocities meticulously whisked out
of existence. But not without the help of the silence of Kings own family,
comrades, fellow civil rights leaders, peaceniks, and progressives, who have
made no serious effort to expose wars-supporting media's iron tight blackout of
King's condemnations and his taking personal responsibility along with all
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.
Arundhati Roy: 'Civil Rights Movement in US Has Become a War Supporting Movement' Article bemoans how selective it is to bemoan the lack of civil rights, but only in America, and even for those Americans who return from willingly denying the very right to remain alive in their own beloved countries overseas.
Slogan 'Black Lives Matter!' Not Intended to Include 'Black' Lives Taken by GI's Overseas 'Black Lives Matter' movement operates in blatant disbelief of Martin Luther King's moral and entirely logical warning; 'will be no progress on social justice issues at home while we go on killing the poor overseas at a such an enormous expenditure of social and financial resources that makes such progress at home impossible.' Another example of American exceptionalism is Occupy Wall St. diverting attention from US wars.
