Eleanor Roosevelt Under FBI Watch

eleanor-page-0-2There’s been a popular meme running around the internet lately, of Martin Luther King, Jr with the caption “Gun Owner on an FBI watch list.” It’s not surprising, given the current political climate, where liberals and Democrats who formerly opposed the sheer incompetence, racial profiling and lack of transparency endemic to “No Fly Lists,” suddenly embrace these relics of George Bush and Dick Cheny as an opportunity to deny the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans being surveilled by the FBI.

King, was of course, a record holder for one of the most massive FBI files ever compiled. It seems a good time to remind people who else lived under suspicion by the government for decades.
