Feminists/leftists women: if you are against Trump or Kavanaugh for 'potentially inappropriate sexual activity,' why do you cover up for MLK?
""Sealed FBI audio tapes allege Martin Luther King Jr. had affairs with 40 women and watched while a friend raped a woman, a report claims" "
Th people who I have shown this to, either deny it or cover it up. Why is it OK when YOUR prophet is a potential rapist or women user, but when these people on the right-wing do it, it is considered bad?

"Feminists/leftists women: if you are against Trump or Kavanaugh for 'potentially inappropriate sexual activity,' why do you cover up for MLK?"
The entire Left, including feminists are all cultural M@rxists now. So they follow IDEOLOGY over everything else. This is why there are always double standards used everywhere with their behaviors and actions. Feminists will even be sexist against women that do not follow the ideology of the Left, thereby making a complete mockery of classic feminism, their namesake.
Of course, feminists will always -claim- to be about women's advocacy/classic feminism for reasons of support, or to excuse their bigotry ... but we can all see through that charade now. Feminism today is a full-on social engineering/cultural M@rxist aligned movement for radical social change.
The double standard you are pointing out in your question is evident to all. Anyone who is anywhere removed from the Left Pole world view is a target for character assassination by the Left. But when it is one of their own, then all sorts of flaky reasons are given as to why -their- leaders should be exempt from the exact same scrutiny they give to others.
Leftists are seen taking down statues and banning books and study material that is no longer politically correct under today's ethos. But when it's their own, like MLK, or even the original first wave suffragettes that are on the record with their blatant racism ... then suddenly we need "perspective" and "context". Why aren't we taking down statues of Susan B Anthony, the racist, along side others like General Lee?
I would be happy with ONE set of rules for all of us. Of course ... that's not good enough for feminists. They demand the double standard for the purposes of vilifying the people they dislike while feeling entitled to not have the same scrutiny applied for their own leadership when they act in the exact same manner. Hypocrites!

I don't cover up for MLK. He treated women horribly.

I have a feeling that most people are unaware of Martin Luther King's alleged debauchery BECAUSE it was covered up.
They also probably don't believe one story among years of reading about and chanting his heroics. This isn't some leftist character trait or hypocrisy. No human being is going to suddenly drop an ideology or leader that they have been deeply invested in and faithful to for years over one contradicting source from the opposition. That would be ridiculous. They are right to doubt the source and defend him.
What would be wrong is if they didn't take a minute to think and investigate the matter on their own. Make sure that the story checks out and their leader IS the man they believe him to be. But they're not going to do that in front of the opposition and show doubt for their own leader until they are certain.
