The FBI shamefully took to Twitter Monday with a message that aimed to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Critics urged the FBI to “sit this one out,” pointing to its history of spying on civil rights leader and trying to convince MLK to kill himself.
This MLK Jr. day remember the FBI urged him to kill himself, spied on him illegally, lied about him and most likely did a lot more that we still dont know about. #MLK2020 pic.twitter.com/aDhuwnmUnN — Luke Rudkowski (@Lukewearechange) January 21, 2020
FBI, translated: Of all the people we have wiretapped, blackmailed, and tried to drive to their deaths through suicide, there are none we think more highly of than Dr. King. https://t.co/rEOkwfYJjS — Richard (RJ) Eskow (@rjeskow) January 20, 2020

Read the letter the FBI sent MLK to try to convince him to kill himself https://t.co/YxFxHaExEZ — Alexis Goldstein ???? (@alexisgoldstein) January 20, 2020
Reminder: The FBI spied on Martin Luther King, Jr. — and today classifies Black civil rights activists as “extremists.” If we let the government whitewash history, we risk letting abuses repeat themselves.https://t.co/CTK1mukQCf — ACLU (@ACLU) January 20, 2020
You know what’s a great idea how about you etch in stone the suicide letter you sent him urging him to try to kill himself!!!
