MLK: The state-sponsored assassination

I guess I should have posted this a couple of days ago on April 4, but I was wrapped up in my Obama is a corporatist tool post.

Priorities!

Anyway, if you’re here on my site, you probably already have a pretty good idea that the official story about Martin Luther King’s murder is yet another episode in the Lone Gunman fairy tale series made so popular by the combined efforts of the U.S. government and the corporate media.

Episode six of the fabulous Evidence of Revision series, on the other hand, uses archival news footage and audio, much of which has been previously unavailable, to piece together the events leading up to King’s assassination on April 4, 1968. The film makes a compelling case that King was assassinated by a nexus of the FBI, the Memphis Police, the U.S. Army, and a rouges gallery of Memphis locals in order to silence his criticism of the Vietnam war.  In fact, in the 1999 wrongful death court case, Coretta Scott King, et al. vs. Lyod Jowers, et al., a Memphis jury found that a local restauranteur named Loyd Jowers conspired with governmental agencies to do harm to Dr. Martin Luther King, and awarded $100,000 in damages.

Here’s Evidence of Revision – Part 6

WARNING: This film contains graphic and disturbing images.

Incidentally, the Evidence of Revision team has also tackled the JFK and RFK assassinations, as well as CIA black ops, mind control, Jonestown and more.  All are highly worthy of your time and consideration.
