Vice President Kamala Harris is under fire after she appeared to promote a conspiracy theory that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968 because he wanted to unite the civil rights movement with workers against the government’s wishes.

Harris was speaking on the labor movement and the United Farm Workers grape boycott when she made the comments, according to an interview the vice president published last week.

“This is the stuff that you know that we have to remind people of,” Harris said, according to a report.

“This is why Dr. King was assassinated because he was bringing together the civil rights movement with the workers. It was the sanitation workers.”

King, who was shot to death by James Earl Ray on April 4, 1968, wanted to align the two together even though few saw the similarities between workers and the civil rights movement, according to Harris.

“[We] were on the verge of a merger of that, an understanding that the priorities and the issues [of civil rights and the labor movement] are inextricably linked,” she said.

The idea that bringing the civil rights movement together with workers was the cause for King’s death alludes to a popular conspiracy theory that the government orchestrated his death, according to the report.

Multiple agencies conspired to kill the leader because he switched his focus to organized labor, according to the conspiracy theory.

In 1999, a jury determined the government did not have a conspiring role to play in King’s death, the report noted.
