It’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and today at breitbart.com, editor John Nolte celebrates the civil rights legend’s birthday by launching an attack on Roots author Alex Haley, and linking to an anti-MLK hate site hosted by the white supremacists of stormfront.org:

ALEX HALEY: THE LANCE ARMSTRONG OF LITERATURE.

That link is at the bottom of this screenshot, labeled “the cover up.”

Here’s Google’s cache of the page John Nolte is using for a source; right at the bottom you can see “Hosted by Stormfront,” which to most people would be a red flag. These white supremacists somehow registered the domain name “martinlutherking.org.”

Their “Suggested Books” page features a book about Martin Luther King Jr.’s “plagiarism,” and an advertisement for the autobiography of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Yes, really.

The rest of the site is full of nauseatingly hateful content that I won’t quote here.

Stormfront is well-known as one of the web’s main centers of ugly racist hatred, but I guess John Nolte didn’t notice anything wrong when he linked to one of their sites. Apparently their very thin disguise was enough to fool Nolte.

He searched for an attack piece on Alex Haley for some weird right wing reason, and — imagine my surprise — found what he was looking for on a white supremacist hate site.

UPDATE at 1/21/13 6:06:33 pm

At about 6:02 pm Pacific, John Nolte edited the post to remove the link to the Stormfront site, replacing it with a link to loony Birther site American Thinker, with this update:

UPDATE: This post has been updated to remove a link to a 2002 “New York Post” story posted at an unacceptable site linked to in error. A new source has been added to the post.

Sure, just a harmless “error,” linking to a white supremacist site on MLK Day. Anyone could have done it.

Here’s a saved copy of Nolte’s original post at WebCite, just for the record.
