Much of the hatred for anyone who criticizes Dr. King comes from the fact that some of the criticism concentrates on his sex life, which resembled Bill Clinton’s. People seem to feel that an investigation that uncovers that kind of detail must be evil. And there may be something in that.
(…) Obama became a Senator because of the same kind of investigation that J. Edgar Hoover conducted on Martin Luther King—the difference being that the Democrats in the media (possibly with the help of David Axelrod) went public with the details, unlike Hoover.
Oh, and unlike Hoover, they didn’t have a lot of embarrassing facts on tape—just a lot of accusations. But it was enough to get Obama in the Senate.
And from there to the Presidency was just a short step—one that a freshman white Senator with his record couldn’t possibly have made.
And so, when you hear that Obama’s Presidency represents the triumph of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., you now have a different perspective on what that means.
