Dr. King Tried to Warn Us About American Fascism. Will We Listen Before It’s Too Late?

“The segregationist goal is the total reversal of all reforms with the reestablishment of naked oppression and if need be a native form of fascism.”

“For years I labored with the idea of reforming the existing institutions of the South, a little change here, a little change there. Now I feel quite differently. I think you’ve got to have a reconstruction of the entire society, a revolution of values.”

“The most important event in the history of the states of the Second Millennium…was the founding of the United States of America. The struggle of the Aryans for world domination thereby received its strongest prop.”

“We are the people who have long known in actual practice the meaning of the word fascism. In many states Negroes are not permitted to vote or hold office…freedom of movement is greatly hindered, especially if we happen to be sharecroppers…we know what it is to be refused admission to schools and colleges, to theaters and concert halls, to hotels and restaurants…In America, Negroes do not have to be told what fascism is in action. We know.”
