It's Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday - Dr. Gary Kohls explains King's real legacy

Tuesday, Jan. 15th, 11 a.m. to noon Central (9-10 Pacific) on NoLiesRadio.org (then archived here a few hours after broadcast).

Gary Kohls, MD is a Christian peace/truth/justice activist from Duluth, Minnesota, where he writes a column for the Duluth Reader. His latest article: “Now That He Is Safely Dead”: Silencing the Voice of Martin Luther King, Jr..

Dr. Kohls aptly writes of next Monday's MLK-day holiday: "The powers that be vehemently opposed even the national holiday, but they have come to tolerate the yearly marches, speeches, and free breakfasts, as long as the people ignore Dr. King’s radical teachings the rest of the year."

Dr. Kohls notes that those like Dr. King who strive to embody the "prophetic voice" of the Judeo-Christo-Islamic tradition are often reviled, silenced, and even martyred:

The process of  purging the prophets

But, as we know, the prophetic voice of King was silenced in its prime, just as the voices of Jesus and Wellstone were silenced. Murderous, conscienceless principalities and powers recognize the prophets and the whistle-blowers early on, and they usually don’t waste much time hindering them, discrediting them, and ultimately developing contingency plans for the “final solution” of the “problem” if everything else fails to stop the rabble-rousing truth-teller.

  1. Hey 9/11 Truth-seekers (and other seekers after truth in general), check out this powerful YouTube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=qEP94AVshrs made by our colleague Barrie Zwicker reviewing Willam Pepper’s whistleblowing book about the trial in 1999 (which the mainstream media boycotted!!) proving that James Earl Ray was a patsie and that various US gov’t agencies and agents, with the help of the Memphis police and its best sniper, were the assassins of MLK.

    While you are on the site, check out some of Barrie’s great videos about 9/11. Gary
