About fifteen years ago, I got ahold of this remarkable little book titled I was an NKVD Agent by Anatoli Granovsky, who defected to the West in 1946. Other than its lack of a plot, it reads like a spy novel, so I don’t know how much of it is true, but it was published in 1962, so it has some relevance here.
One of Granovsky’s potential missions following the Soviet victory in WWII was to infiltrate the West. He was to use two angles: one of which was to seduce women of high social standing who were active in social justice (e.g. feminism, civil rights, etc.); the other was to be a fake priest/minister.
So according to Granovsky, the top tier of Soviet intelligence had already identified the ministry, the sexual revolution and civil rights as key weaknesses to be exploited by communists by the end of WWII. This would explain a lot.
I strongly suspect that MLK was indeed handled by the KGB, probably not only through Levison but others as well. I doubt he was personally aware of it, but a man like that doesn’t need to be — he’s most useful just stirring up trouble with his sermons, sleeping around and not asking questions about where the money comes from.
Conservatives now (shamefully) often claim King as one of their own, so this is still important. King’s false Christianity also has to be exposed as fraud. Why was a Jewish communist (who prominently defended Julius and Ethel Rosenberg) writing sermons for a Christian pastor, anyway? To spread the good news about Christ? Give me a break…
For those of us who had to endure MLK day rallies and indoctrination sessions in grade school, and hated them, this is vindicating.
Before we Americans can move forward with a truly just, truly Christian solution to racial strife in our country, this fake Christian state cult of MLK has to be banished.
