Hillary tossed me into the “basket of deplorables” along with 63,000,000 other Americans who voted for Donald Trump (well, in fairness to her statement, she stated that only half of us, 31,500,000 Americans, were “deplorable”). You know, we “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it,” Americans. Today let’s talk about “liberals” and racism.
Liberals admire the socialist concepts of Karl Marx. They probably have never read a translation of Das Capital (footnote), or even seen the actual book. They have probably also never seen the pamphlet he co-authored with Friedrich Engels, “Manifesto of the Communist Party.” But they are believers. Why is that, ask you. Because, answer I, their leaders have read it and believe in it. Liberalism, Socialism and Marxism can be uttered in the same breath and with the same meaning.

Although “May Day” started in the USA, it is more strongly associated with communism – “workers of the world, unite!” I can recall the evening news coverage of the May Day parades in Red Square. In the US we see leftist radicals and unionists worshipping the ideals of communism on May Day.
Most liberals who voted for Hillary and agreed that I am a “racist” because I voted for Trump, fail to realize that their socialist hero was a flaming racist.
[From the Williams article] For those who see Marx as their hero, there are a few historical tidbits they might find interesting. Nathaniel Weyl, himself a former communist, dug them up for his 1979 book, “Karl Marx: Racist.”
For example, Marx didn’t think much of Mexicans. When the United States annexed California after the Mexican War, Marx sarcastically asked, “Is it a misfortune that magnificent California was seized from the lazy Mexicans who did not know what to do with it?”
Engels shared Marx’s contempt for Mexicans, explaining: “In America we have witnessed the conquest of Mexico and have rejoiced at it. It is to the interest of its own development that Mexico will be placed under the tutelage of the United States.”
I guess building a wall to make our border secure is small potatoes when compared to the rantings of Marx and Engels. Additionally, black Americans may be interested in Marx’s attitudes toward them.
[From the Williams article] In a letter to Engels (referring to a political candidate running against him who was Jewish) Marx wrote: “It is now completely clear to me that he, as is proved by his cranial formation and his hair, descends from the Negroes who had joined Moses’ exodus from Egypt, assuming that his mother or grandmother on the paternal side had not interbred with a n—–. (Yep! He used the “N” word – RF.) Now this union of Judaism and Germanism with a basic Negro substance must produce a peculiar product.”
Engels shared Marx’s racial philosophy… (Engels wrote of a different candidate), “Being in his quality as a n—–, (Yep! He used the “N” word, too – RF.) a degree nearer to the rest of the animal kingdom than the rest of us, he is undoubtedly the most appropriate representative of that district.” (As the candidate was running in a French election, I guess he didn’t think much of the French either – RF.)
Jewish Americans voted 71% for Hillary and 25% for Trump. I wonder how many of the 71% realize that Marx was also a flaming anti-Semite.
[From the Williams article] As seen in his essay titled “On the Jewish Question,” which was published in 1844. Marx asked: What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. … Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man—and turns them into commodities. … The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange. … The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.
And let us not forget that communists MURDERED more than 100 million people who didn’t agree with their notions (they were mostly Christian Caucasians and Mongoloids). So the philosophy spawned by Marx and Engels saw fit to either hate or murder just about every race and religion. These were NOT NICE GUYS! The Democrat Party should try “virtue-signaling” those realities.
In 1867, Marx wrote the first volume of “Das Kapital.” The second and third volumes were published posthumously, edited by Engels.
