'You filthy, abnormal animal’: graphic contents of anonymous letter sent by FBI to Martin Luther King

Civil rights leader was urged to kill himself over ‘sexual orgies' with 'evil playmates'

The graphic contents of an anonymous letter in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation called Martin Luther King a “filthy abnormal animal” have been made public for the first time.

Written in 1964 by a deputy of the feared FBI chief J Edgar Hoover posing as a disillusioned civil rights activist, the typewritten note appears to have been a heavy-handed attempt to blackmail King into taking his own life.

Already a notorious footnote in American history, the “suicide letter” was heavily censored when it was first published, with most of its more outrageous language remaining secret.

However, the full contents of the note have now been made public after a Beverly Gage, a historian from Yale University unearthed an unredacted copy in the National Archive while researching a book on Hoover.

Hoover was known to do this sort of thing, he thought he was a king maker,  God in the flesh. He was one twisted person. He collected dirt on everyone to prevent them from telling on him and risking his position. 

Thanks Nikki, sharing this.

J. Edgar Hoover, in some circles known as Maria, the transvestite. Utmost hypocrisy.
