Ever since Lincoln’s War against Southern State’s independence black people have been vulnerable to Marxist’s plans to create cultural unrest promoting their goal for a socialist revolution and the ultimate destruction of American culture and economy.
Lincoln’s cynical Emancipation Proclamation was a war tactic expected to create violent uprisings among Negroes in the Southern States that might hasten the end of the war. At the time it was condemned by many Northerners. And it didn’t work.
Most Southern black people were peaceful; many were loyal to white families with which they were integrated—some even fought valiantly against the Northern invaders of their homeland.
One hundred years later the “civil rights” movement gave violent Marxists another opportunity to enlist blacks in their subversive cause. Many Americans recognized the threat.
The FBI kept surveillance and files on Martin Luther King’s activities which included suspected contacts with Communist operatives. To his credit Rev. King stuck with his nonviolent theme and the full integration of Negroes into American society. But a few black men broke with him on this goal.
A recent article in the June 2016 issue of Smithsonian magazine by Wil Haygood titled, “Power Player” describes the late Stokely Carmichael’s rejection of peaceful attempts to integrate blacks. Carmichael had been the leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).
In June of 1966 after his imprisonment in Mississippi for inciting riots he denounced King’s nonviolent “Freedom” motto and declared “What we are going to start saying now is ‘Black Power.’” Carmichael declared, “We were never fighting for the right to integrate, we were fighting against white supremacy.”
Haygood’s article subtitle: “Carmichael’s rallying cry marked a turning point in the movement.” That point took us into the era of violence and disruption of civil society.
Later, presumed power, ridicule, political pressure, polarizing people against each other and never compromising would by the neoleftist paradigm; as developed by Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” published in 1971.
Although Alinsky’s didn’t directly promote violence he considered “Haves” as the enemy. His tactics concerned taking from them: “how the Have-Nots can take power away from the Haves”
Violence always results from Marxist tactics because their deceptions, lies and delusions cannot be taken seriously by rational, reasonable people: “the Have-Nots have always had to club their way,” wrote Alinsky.
Haygood doesn’t condemn Carmichael as a violent revolutionary. Instead he wonders why Time magazine decided not to use Carmichael’s face on their cover. He quotes another source: “They did not want to be seen promoting a person on its cover who law enforcement was saying was promoting riots.” This makes sense in the historical context of a formerly responsible press but unsurprisingly not to contemporary journalists.
Time had planned to publish a commissioned portrait of Carmichael (an ugly, angry caricature with a black panther drawn over his left shoulder that now hangs in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery) on the cover of a July 1966 issue of the magazine. Time editors realized that the face was a black racist.
On July 1, 1966 they published an article titled, “The New Face of Racism.”
Many militant ideologues are impatient with what they consider the glacial pace of progress in civil rights. They espouse instead a racist philosophy that could ultimately perpetuate the very separatism against which Negroes have fought so successfully. Oddly, they are not white men but black and their slogan is ‘Black Power!’
In 1967 Carmichael left SNCC and joined the “more militant Black Panthers.” By 1969 he moved to Guinea in West Africa where he announced that black power “can only be realized when there exists a unified socialist Africa.” He established connections with other Marxist organizations including “pan-Africanism.” He changed his name to Kwame Ture and died in Africa in 1998.
Today we feel-the-burn of violent black men reignited in Black Lives Matter, funded by the Hungarian billionaire, George Soros, who hates America. These dangerous people must be condemned and ostracized before their evil actions create more chaos and killing.
Unfortunately, they will be supported by many other subversive Marxists, black and white, who have seized power in our American institutions: government, education and the media.
