If black lives matter why are Marxist radical leftists (of every color and persuasion) using them to forward a lawless and sinister tyrannical agenda? Are these the things utopian dreams are made of?
Based on my research, I’m afraid so.
“I subsequently discovered that the Panthers had killed more than a dozen people in the course of conducting extortion, prostitution and drug rackets in the Oakland ghetto. While these criminal activities were taking place, the group enjoyed the support of the American left, the Democratic Party, Bay Area trade unions and even the Oakland business establishment.”
Nobody knows these inconvenient and demonic truths better than former Marxist zealot turned conservative crusader David Horowitz.
It’s reasonably safe to say that the dastardly means, methods, and ways of the radical left have in nowise changed. In fact, it appears the debased movement has gone global.
I’ve been personally told that a white Christian conservative could never know and should never speak to the plight of the African American. This may very well be true. In fact, I personally lament that any of my black brothers and sisters were ever made to believe that their lives didn’t matter. However, are we to believe that a white hedge fund benefactor truly has the best intentions of the average black american (or any american for that matter) at heart? Why is the white leftist more trustworthy? Especially those mired in godless criminality…
“On a far smaller scale, the Panther killings were an American version of the “Katyn massacre,” the infamous murder of Polish officers carried out on Stalin’s orders that the left had denied and kept hidden for decades, until the opening of the Soviet archives settled the “dispute” for good. It was much harder for me to understand why the Panthers should be able to get away with these murders in democratic America, and why the nation’s press should turn such a blind eye to a group that the nation’s law enforcement had made an object of its attentions.”
The true divide lies not between black and white. We all sin and bleed and can only be united and redeemed by the Son of man, the KING of Kings!
We must resist emotional divisions and godless manipulations at all cost. I, for one, will put my faith in the immutable and eternal God who will avenge evil, transform disciples and restore creation.
