Documents released thanks to the Freedom of Information Act show that Coretta Scott King was closely monitored by the FBI for 2 years after her husband's assassination.
The powers that be didn't want her linking the anti-war movement to the civil rights movement as her husband had begun doing in speeches shortly before he was killed. This potential union of anti-war activists and civil rights activists scared the daylights out of the 1%. They feared the moral authority such a unified movement would wield.
So they perpetrated violence to eliminate chance of such an intersection. And followed Mrs. King to make sure she didn't make the same powerful connection.
Connections are dangerous to the 1%.
They know that as soon as we the 99% start paying attention to what we have in common rather than what separates us, we, the 99%, will begin to make decisions from a position of unified strength rather than demands from a position of divided weakness.
They can't afford to have us unify. And we can't afford not to.
It's going to be a beautiful springtime in America. You can feel it.
