Default Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day History Quiz!

Take this handy quiz to see how much you know about the man we're all
delighted -- and required -- to honor today!

by J. S.

DUE TO DISCRIMINATION and anti-Black bias, many Americans don't know
enough about the great man who is honored today in the land of the free
and the home of the brave. Precisely how this 'discrimination' works is
somewhat of a mystery, since our public schools display his image to
impressionable youth 35 times more often than they do the image of
George Washington -- and almost as often as they reverently intone about
the horrors of the 'Holocaust.'

Whatever its cause may be, we aim to correct this appalling ignorance.
To begin to set things right, we offer a little quiz that will show you
just where you stand in the King knowledge race.

Try these quiz questions and you can see how little the schools, news
media and establishment have told you about the only American with his
own holiday:

1) Name the judge who has sealed King's FBI surveillance file until the
year 2027.

A) The Honorable John Lewis Smith, Jr.

2) According to whose 1989 biography did King spend his last night on
earth in an adulterous liaison?

A) Reverend Ralph Abernathy, And the Walls Came Tumbling Down.

3) According to whose 1989 biography did King spend his last morning on
earth physically beating a woman?

A) Reverend Ralph Abernathy, And the Walls Came Tumbling Down.

4) Who was the U.S. Attorney General who ordered the FBI to wiretap King?

A) Robert F. Kennedy

5) Who was the Assistant Director of the FBI who wrote a letter to Sen.
John P. East (R-NC) describing King's conduct of "orgiastic and
adulterous escapades, some of which indicated that King could be bestial
in his sexual abuse of women"?

A) Charles D. Brennan

6) Who called King a "hypocrite preacher"?

A) President Lyndon B. Johnson

doctoral thesis?

A) Dr. Jack Boozer

9) Who was the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities who
purposely suppressed knowledge of King's plagiarism of his doctoral thesis?

A) Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Richard Cheney

10) What was Martin Luther King's real name?

A) Michael King, Jr.

In 1935 his father, Michael King, declared to his congregation that he
would henceforth be known as "Martin Luther King" and his son would be
known as "Martin Luther King, Jr." but these changes were never
formalized legally.

11) In his first public sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in 1947,
who did King plagiarize?

A) Harry Emerson Fosdick

12) Name the man who served as King's personal secretary from 1955 to
1960, had joined the Young Communists League at New York City College in
1936, went to prison for draft evasion in 1944, and in 1953 was
sentenced to 60 days in jail in California for "lewd vagrancy and
homosexual perversion."

A) Bayard Rustin

13) According to whom had King "privately described himself as a Marxist."

A) His biographer, David J. Garrow

14) Who edited King's book, Stride Toward Freedom?

A) Jewish Communist Stanley Levison

15) Who made the following speech?

"That's exactly what we mean -- from every mountain side, let freedom
ring. Not only from the Green Mountains and White Mountains of Vermont
and New Hampshire; not only from the Catskills of New York; but from the
Ozarks in Arkansas, from Stone Mountain in Georgia, from the Blue Ridge
Mountains of Virginia -- let it ring not only for the minorities of the
United States, but for the disinherited of all the earth -- from every
mountainside, LET FREEDOM RING!"

A) Archibald Carey, 1952

Test analysis:

No questions correct means you are exactly the kind of citizen your
masters desire.

1-3 questions correct means you could be dangerous.

4-6 questions correct means you need electro-convulsive therapy.

7-10 questions correct means you are a hater.

11 or more questions correct means you are a terrorist. Turn yourself in
now for re-education and your life will be spared.

Happy slain civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Reverend
Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
