      The left always seem to forget he was conservative.
      Nooooo. I havent seen it yet, but the article says it definitely painted them both on the same side, which historically speaking, they were.
      I think it was one scene of the movie where they showed LBJ getting Hoover involved in blackmail, which nobody actually knows if it was LBJ who started that. But they also showed it as a weak moment where he crumbled because he didnt get his way?
      Idk....touchy story I suppose. I just dont think it's a big deal because...well....it's a movie. lol

        Well if historical inaccuracies are running rampant, I can see the outrage.

            Pretty sure the FBI found out MLK had a mistress. Hoover had dirt on EVERYONE.

                  That's exactly what happened. But what's not public knowledge is whether LBJ ordered the blackmail (We know that Hoover offered various ways to "neutralize" MLK multiple times to LBJ), or whether it was Hoover acting on his own.
                  The movie portrays it the following way:
                  LBJ urges MLK not to stage the walk in alabama yet. He wants more time to pass before he pushes through the voting rights acts. MLK wants to strike while the iron is hot so to speak, because they've both done such a good job with the Civil Rights Act. MLK says they can't wait any longer, so LBJ orders Hoover to release whatever he has.

                  Regardless of what happened in reality, it's all very fascinating to me. I love history, and I love movies.

                            You know what was also BASED on historical events?

                            Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

                            There were plenty of historical events depicted in it. You know what wasn't historical? The vampires. lol
