WELP.


Stop what you are doing.
Read those.
Right now.
I’ll wait.
If you don’t want to read, I’ll explain the key bullet points, but please read them afterwords:
This is not “we didn’t protect him enough.”
This is not “the government screwed up some random detail or accidentally let his killer loose.”
The 111th Military Intelligence had a team taking pictures of his balcony during the assassination.
They brought in a Special Forces 8-Man Sniper Team from the 20th.
Memphis Police withdrew their regular protection detail from him.
A jury of 12 people, six black and six white, found the United States Government guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.
YOUR GOVERNMENT. MY GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE, SHOT AND KILLED DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. And the media never reported the case.
MLK was ASSASSINATED. By a government YOU PAY FOR.
I hate those posts where someone tries to pressure you into reblogging. I almost never ask you to reblog.
This shit is important.
Reblog this. I don’t care what kind of blog you have. I don’t care what you normally talk about.
Reblog this.

Does ANYONE bother to click on links??? The sources above are Wikipedia, The Examiner, Washington’s Blog, and two relatively shady websites with bare-bones material. 
Here is a better link.
The story appears to be true. Apparently, hardly anyone attended the three-and-a-half week trial. It is tragic that this is not taught in the history books.
Ah, wait, LOL, you’re a CONSPIRACY THEORIST if you question the official story, lol what am I saying!
Move along, nothing to see here. 

I’m requesting additional sources but this is pretty damning

A few more:

CNN reports the government-killing-King angle as a “conspiracy theory”. This is a common, convenient tactic used by government and media to dismiss actual evidence contrary to what is reported as the official story. 
Also, here is a link to the official transcript:
http://www.thekingcenter.org/civil-case-king-family-versus-jowers
From the transcript:

I think the testimony here that you’ve heard and the proof that you’ve heard indicates clearly there is more than just Mr. Jowers involved. He was a small-time greasy-spoon cafe operator who played a very small significant part in this case, if anything. If you will study over the reports I’ve provided for you and the exhibits, think about all the testimony that has been given here and what really happened, ladies and gentlemen, your verdict would have to be that the United States government, the FBI, the Memphis Police Department and others were involved in this conspiracy to murder Dr. King.
…
THE COURT: I understand the jury has reached a verdict. I’m going to bring them out. They’ve indicated that they want a picture of themselves. So I’m authorizing this gentleman to take one picture. He is going to make sure there are no additional copies. I’ll have copies made of them and send them to the jurors.
(Jury in.)
THE COURT: All right, ladies and gentlemen. I understand you reached a verdict. Is that correct?
THE JURY: Yes (In unison).
THE COURT: May I have that verdict.
(Verdict form passed to the Court.)
THE COURT: I have authorized this gentleman here to take one picture of you which I’m going to have developed and make copies and send to you as I promised. Okay. All right, ladies and gentlemen. Let me ask you, do all of you agree with this verdict?
THE JURY: Yes (In unison).
THE COURT: In answer to the question did Loyd Jowers participate in a conspiracy to do harm to Dr. Martin Luther King, your answer is yes. Do you also find that others, including governmental agencies, were parties to this conspiracy as alleged by the defendant? Your answer to that one is also yes. And the total amount of damages you find for the plaintiffs entitled to is one hundred dollars. Is that your verdict?
THE JURY: Yes (In unison).

I’m not surprised by any of this. It’s just sad that it’s not talked about. 
It’s probably “a bunch of BS, though”. Lol move along, keep going about your day.

Did you guys also know that MLK Jr plagiarized a lot of his work?
Source 1, Source 2, Source 3, Source 4
I don’t really care because I find MLK to be a great man and he gave his life for a cause that helped the entire human race, but still, he plagiarized his work.
Another fun fact that never gets reported.
As for the claim that MLK was assassinated by the government, yea, I thought this was common knowledge. 
MLK had full-time FBI surveillance following him around and yet, somehow, he was assassinated. Well, golly me, how did that slip through the cracks….
MLK was a hero, a plagiarist and a target.

It’s crazy to think The Government murdered Andrew Breitbart.

I mean, the United States Government would never kill an AMERICAN CITIZEN!

I love me a good conspiracy. 

The most insane part about all of this is that under the AUMF and the NDAA 2012, killing Breitbart would be deemed 100% legal by Obama, AG Eric Holder, members of Congress and whatever courts that have allowed the NDAA 2012 to stand. Insane, I tell you.
