To the editor:
Too many people are what Lenin called “useful idiots” for condoning his radicalism. Like the Marxists, they emphasize group identities (“oppressors” vs. “victims”), not individual acts.
Thirty years ago, when he was interviewed on 20/20 (ABC), jazz musician Miles Davis was told that his music was a product of his suffering. It was assumed he had lived in poverty as a victim of racism.
Mr. Davis said he never suffered but was from an upper middle class family.
Recently, in Wisconsin, protesters vandalized a statue honoring Col. Hans Christian Hegemonies of the Union Army, a Norwegian immigrant who died in the Civil War. His opposition to slavery meant nothing to those radical anti-American fanatics.
Hank Newsome of Black Lives Matter in New York said, “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system…”
That is like Lenin’s threat more than 100 years ago. “We will destroy everything…”
How many know or care that in Dallas in 2016 a BLM sympathizer murdered five police officers? Did anyone protest about that?
In June of 2015, a white racist murdered Black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina. Was there radical outrage against that evil act?
Many African-Americans are devout Christians who are opposed to left-wing radicalism. Their lives don’t matter to radicals.
Radical leftists reject the non-violence of Martin Luther King and ignore his message about judging people by their character, not skin color. Instead, even white radicals believe the absurd claim that “to be white is to be racist.”
Radicals think they can create a utopia but the world needs love, righteousness and compassion instead of hatred, lawlessness and cruelty. Who the world needs is God. To God all lives matter: John 3:16-17.
