King avoided labelling himself a communist in public, but readily described himself as a Marxist in private. Plus his upper echelon was quite cozy with the communists. That's why the FBI started taping/monitoring him as a subversive element and a threat: because parts of his beliefs were just that. So while the blacks and hippies all discounted the claims that he was a communist and claim he was just being watched because whitey didn't like his stance on civil rights, the truth is they had bigger concerns about him being a Communist sowing discord, and if he wasn't outright collaborating (which some of his lieutenants were), his philandering and hypocrisy did make him an easy blackmail threat to the communists.
