Era un tal Stanley David Levison, según supe hace unos días: Negros y judíos en Norteamérica: De la alianza subversiva a la hostilidad abierta. Se trata de un empresario judío dedicado a promover causas “progresistas”, es decir, a la subversión de las sociedades cristianas. Fue también un líder del Partido Comunista de los EE. UU.
Esto es lo que cuentan de él en la wikipedia (solo hay entrada en inglés):
Stanley David Levison (1912 – 1979) was a Jewish businessman from New York, who had also attained a law degree from St. John’s University. He was a life-long activist in progressive causes. He is best known as an advisor to, and close friend of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., whom he helped write speeches and organize events.
He had initially been introduced to King by Bayard Rustin, a Quaker, in New York City in 1956. Though King had offered to pay Levison in exchange for his help, Levison refused on every occasion stating that “the liberation struggle is the most positive and rewarding area of work anyone could experience”.
Levison was in the leadership of the Communist Party USA in the 1950s. The FBI had him under the surveillance of Jack and Morris Childs, two former CPUSA members who became FBI informants. According to the FBI, Levison’s CPUSA activities ended in 1957.
He was questioned twice, on February 9 and March 4, 1960. Two years later, on April 30, 1962, he was called to testify under subpoena at an executive session of the Senate Subcommittee on Internal Security, where he was represented by William Kunstler; his testimony is still considered Classified.
Although there was no evidence of Levison having further ties to the CPUSA, the FBI used his earlier CP history to justify wiretaps and bugs on his offices and the offices and hotel rooms of Martin Luther King. FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, did not consider King to be a communist, but did consider the possibility that Levison might use or manipulate King to stimulate political unrest within the United States.
Levison was instrumental in all the activities of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), the organization established by King and other Southern black preachers to further the cause of civil rights. He professionalized the fund raising of the organization and took on much of the publicity tasks, in addition to serving as King’s literary agent. He was also a close adviser of King.
Levison’s role as advisor and friend to King was portrayed by actor Steven Hill in King, a 1978 television miniseries.
No es mucho, pero es suficiente.
Este (The inconvenient man) es un artículo del autor el libro reseñado aquí (Negros y judíos en Norteamérica: De la alianza subversiva a la hostilidad abierta). En el se exculpa al subversivo Levison como un víctima, como “el típico judío progre de la época”:
Hoover’s campaign of rumor, innuendo and character assassination against King basically relied on two prongs. One was his wiretapping of King during extramarital sexual assignations. The other was his unfounded contention that Stanley Levison was the link between King and international Communism. To this day, one can find fevered imaginings of Levison’s purported perfidy brandished on Web sites with the titles “Martin Luther King, Jr. Traitor’ and “Abolish the King holiday.”
THE TRUTH is that Levison typified an American Jewish leftie of his era – very much including the fact that he made his money as a capitalist, practicing law, investing in real estate, and operating a Ford dealership. The truth also is that, so far as the historical record reveals, Levison was not a communist agent or party member while closely tied to King.
Como dice un amigo mío: “pero estos no van poniendote bombas en los trenes”. Los liberales están convencidos de que no nos podemos quejar de la destrucción de nuestras sociedades si los subversivos no usan la coacción.
