Dick Gregory reacts to Ernest Withers expose

Dick Gregory on the Rob Redding radio show

This is the 3rd hour of this daily radio show.  This is from September 15th.  There are segments and commercials.  Gregory talks about this a little in the first segment.  Gregory does not think we really went to the Moon.  So, skip that part.  They have some phone trouble in the second segment.  He's calling in from a cell phone.

Gregory said, "It's more than a surprise.  I thought you could always recognize a Judas."  

Gregory talks about how Withers became a police officer and was fired from that because he was too rough shaking down people.  Then Withers got a job with a liquor authority and lost that job because he would shake people down there too.  Gregory thinks he was a bit of a thug.

But, he was really upset with Andrew Young's dismissive attitude about the revelation.  Young doesn't think its a big deal that Withers was making a little money on the side. I don't think Young really comprehended the story that Withers was ratting everyone out to J. Edgar Hoover.  A little money on the side?  This wasn't a kid with a part-time job at the mall.  Young also said that he didn't think Dr. King would be too upset about this either.  Gregory is astonished by that, and thinks it betrays a hatred by Young of King.

In the third segment Gregory wonders what else Withers was involved in.  "Was getting King killed part of the deal?"

In the 4th segment, Gregory thinks Young's dismissive reaction needs to be explained.  Withers was there with the first photos of the killings of some people.
