Rep. Chisty Zito on Martin Luther King

Legislative Update, Week 2

By Representative Christy Zito
January 21, 2018

Monday, was Martin Luther King Day.  King is probably the most well known Republican in our recent history.  I admire his love of our founding document, the love he had for his country, his belief that demonstration and conflict are to be had on the highest plane of dignity.  These excerpts are from one of Dr. Kings most famous speeches.

“In a sense we have come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

“We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.”

On that day, in Judiciary and Rules committee we reviewed the promulgated rules for POST (Peace Officers Standards and Training) academy. Reading the proposed rules and changes I found that the words “before God” were to be taken out of the personal ethics agreement that those who completed POST were to agree to before they received their certification.

The removal of these two words may seem trivial, however this is how it begins.  One small deletion here and another there and soon, the foundation of what our country stands for is gone.  We see the same thing occurring with the removal of our statues, books from schools, anything that anyone finds offensive.  Our history will be rewritten by those who gain the power to do so.  The struggle of our past patriots like Reverend King will be rewritten to mean something do different, that our history and what our country has stood for will be forever lost.

In my opinion, keeping the reference to our Creator does not diminish the feelings of those who do not believe in a Supreme Creator. However, these are the principles upon which this great country was founded.  Not every member of the Convention that produced the Constitution believed the same.  They came from different backgrounds and religious beliefs.  Still belief and faith in God was the underlying foundation of their work. Our rights are granted to us by a Creator, and protected by the Constitution. We grant the authority to protect those rights to those elected to act in our stead. It is the role if government to act for and in behalf of the citizen.

Wednesday in State Affairs we voted down proposed candidate conflict of interest and financial disclosure legislation.  There was no accountability in this draft.  I feel that this type of legislation can and should be stronger and better.  I don’t believe that those who live in your home, family members such as aged parents, should have their finances exposed. I have also been working on legislation to strengthen our lobbyist gift reporting statute.  It will be ready this coming week.

I continue to gather cosponsors for the Stand Your Ground legislation.  It is my belief that our full Second Amendment rights should be restored.  This right is ensured to us to protect all of the other liberties we cherish; for example, a safeguard against an out of control government.

As always I am so grateful for your trust in me, and for the opportunity to represent your voice in our government.  Please contact me any time.  The session is moving along at a rapid pace, the hours of daylight are short and the hours of work are long.  I love it!

1 Comment on Rep. Chisty Zito on Martin Luther King

  1. Rep. Zito,

    Not to “rain on your MLK parade;” however, you may want to at least take into consideration that as part of a government cover-up, Martin Luther King was another public figure that was assassinated for the martyr effect. As the evidence below shows, the evidence of King’s corruption, womanizing and Communist sympathies, we was becoming more a liability to the Civil Rights agenda than an asset. It was only a matter of time before King’s reputation would self-destruct. By engineering his death and blaming it on a supposed racist, the Powers That Be could turn MLK into a hero. With the assistance of controlled judges, they could have his records sealed and make sure the public would not have access to the real Martin Luther King.

    Every year America endures the same propaganda media-blitz on Martin Luther King day–the false portrayal of the “Reverend” King as an American hero; a saintly, self-sacrificing religious martyr for the cause of civil rights. He was everything but that and certainly no hero that any American should look up to. I have written extensively about the defense of true civil rights, no one can accuse me of hating the cause. I say this be way of introduction in anticipation of the fury my remarks will generate among the media attempting to perpetrate this growing myth upon American culture. Everything about Martin Luther King is a fraud. Here are the real facts.

    1) NAME CHANGE: MLK is really Michael King, Jr. His father was a minister and arbitrarily decided to rename himself and his son, Martin Luther King Sr. and Jr.

    2) PLAGIARISM IN HIS DOCTORAL THESIS: The most complete analysis of King’s chronic plagiarism in his academic career was done by Gerry Harbison, professor of Chemistry at University of Nebraska: “In 1988, the Martin Luther King Jr. Papers Project made a discovery that shocked it to its core. The Project, a group of academics and students, had been entrusted by Coretta Scott King with the task of editing King’s papers for publication. As they examined King’s student essays and his dissertation, they gradually became aware that King was guilty of massive plagiarism – that is, he had copied the words of other authors word-for-word, without making it clear that what he was writing was not his own. The Project spent years uncovering the full extent of King’s plagiarism. In November 1990, word leaked to the press, and they had to go public. The revelations caused a minor scandal and then were promptly forgotten.” Suppressed would be a more accurate description. The National Endowment for the Humanities actively suppressed the story in preparation for celebrating King. Its then director was Lynne Cheney, wife of the current Vice President. For the full story see Prof. Harbison’s website:

    3) COMMUNIST BACKGROUND AND CONTACTS: It appears that King established an early liaison with the American Communist Party and sought to create civil unrest in support of the revolution. His own biographer, David J. Garrow admitted that king once privately “described himself as a Marxist.” King constantly surrounded himself with Communists, hired them, and even went to great lengths to keep them on through secret relationships. King’s personal secretary in the 1950s was communist and homosexual Bayard Rustin. According to Sen. Jesse Helms, “King was repeatedly warned about his associations with known Communists by friendly elements in the Kennedy Administration and the Department of Justice [DOJ] (including strong and explicit warning from President Kennedy himself). King took perfunctory and deceptive measures to separate himself from the Communists [Stanley David Levison and Hunter Pitts O’Dell ] against whom he was warned. He continued to have close and secret contacts with at least some of them after being informed and warned of their background, and he violated a commitment to sever his relationships with identified Communists.”

    4) IMMORAL AND ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR: Dr. King had an ample reputation as a philanderer and abuser of women of ill repute. The FBI under J. Edgar Hoover had run surveillance on King and his entourage for years attempting to gather data on his Communist connections. While the Bureau did surveill King’s attendance at Communist meetings, but most of the surveillance records show an extreme preoccupation after hours with illicit sex. In deference to King’s usefulness in promoting a national holiday for civil rights, US Federal judge John Lewis Smith, Jr. ordered all the FBI records sealed up in the National Archives for 50 years (till 2027). When I was Executive Editor of Conservative Digest, I called retired Acting FBI Director L. Patrick Gray and asked him what was in the evidence locked away. His answer surprised me. He said there were approximately 15 file cabinets of evidence on King–14 of them were full of recordings and transcripts of his illicit relationships with prostitutes. Only one file cabinet contained evidence of his Communist relationships.

    Even former co-workers have blown the whistle on King’s scurrilous conduct. The Rev. Ralph Abernathy, in his book, And the Wall Came Tumbling Down, King spent his last night in the motel having an immoral liason with three women and then beat one of the woman in the morning before he was shot. Assistant Director of the FBI Charles D. Brennan wrote a letter to Sen. John P. East (R-NC) in which he stated that King’s conduct consisted of “orgiastic and adulterous escapades, some of which indicated that King could be bestial in his sexual abuse of women.” The FBI surveillance records covering his first night in Stockholm, Sweden, where he was to receive the Noble Peace Prize, document that his only interest was how to secure prostitutes for he and his entourage. An orgy followed. King’s surveillance and wiretaps were personally authorized by then Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. If these allegations are true, this man should never have been put forward as a national hero. Yes, I am aware that other national heroes have had there weaknesses, but King’s conduct borders on a Clinton-like sexual addiction.
