Dear President Donald J. Trump,
Marcus Mosiah Garvey’s unjust 1923 conviction by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI on bogus charges of mail fraud mirrors your own maltreatment by former FBI directors James Comey and Robert Mueller and their phoney ‘Russia collusion’ probes aimed at discrediting and destroying you.
Indeed, the shameful and Kafkaesque #SpyGate attempt by the FBI to attribute your spectacular 2016 election victory to the Machiavellian guile of Vladimir Putin are but a carbon copy of Hoover’s COINTELPRO crusade which sought to malign the late Dr. Martin Luther King by ascribing his civil rights endeavours to the wily machinations of Nikita Khrushchev.
You, Mr President, having been subjected to politically-motivated misconduct by the Bureau of the kind long endured by Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X and countless other African-American leaders, now find yourself in a unique and providential position to forge a special bond of kinship with the African-American community by issuing a Posthumous Presidential Pardon of Marcus Garvey.
Your admirable decision to pardon boxer JACK JOHNSON – an amnesty which your predecessor, Barack Obama, stubbornly refused to grant – highlighted yet another lamentable instance of the cruelty and cynicism with which the Democrats have consistently betrayed the very African-Americans to whom they owe their own political fortunes.
We therefore appeal to you, President Trump, to pardon Marcus Mosiah Garvey (yet another pardon Obama refused to grant) and set right a terrible wrong in an act for which African-Americans (and Africans the world over) would be eternally grateful and for which you and the Party of Lincoln would be richly rewarded both at the ballot box and by the verdict of history.
