*Do you recall we almost lost Dr. Martin Luther King because he was stabbed by a woman at a book signing in 1958? Well that woman, Izola Ware Curry, died on Saturday at the age of 98.

Dr. King’s injuries were so close to his aorta that doctors told him, if he sneezed, he could have died. King would refer to the incident years later saying, “I’m so happy that I didn’t sneeze.”

Had Curry lived, she who would have turned 99 in June. Diagnosed criminally insane after she stabbed the civil rights activist, Curry has lived in a series of homes after her release from the Matteawan State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, reports The Smoking Gun.

  1. I know it’s real. I never said it wasn’t.

    The revisionist history idiots of today try to pretend everyone loved Dr. King back in the day. No they didn’t, and that includes a serious contingent of black people who hated Dr. King.

    This woman was just like those crazy ding bat black people on Fox who hate our current president. Except she had the audacity to stab Dr. King.

    On a similar note, I marvel at all of the fake praise the Neocons have for Dr. King now that he’s not here. When he was alive, they hated his guts and everything he stood for.

    I know what I’m talking about in both instances. I was very much alive when Ms. Curry stabbed Dr. King, and I remember the vitriol the so-called Dixiecrats (today’s RethuglicKlan party) had for Dr. King.

    Sorry, but I’m not letting Curry off the hook with the “mental illness” BS. She knew exactly what she was doing…
