When someone tells you who they are, as the saying goes, believe them.
Most decent and rational people would be deeply offended by anyone comparing them to a genocidal authoritarian with more deaths under his belt than Hitler OR Stalin, one who is responsible for nearly as many human deaths as Hitler and Stalin COMBINED.
The genocidal maniac in question would be China’s Chairman Mao.
But one of the most prominent activists inflaming America today took a comparison between her book and Chairman Mao’s Red Book as a compliment. She got giddy over it and suggested that the person who made that comparison buy a stack of them and organize a book club around the content.
Because the murderous iconoclastic student groups organized by Mao were such a wonderful end result of his radical philosophy that we need to import that to America along with everything else, right?
Actually, she seems to think so. As one guy I know described it, she’s building ‘Sh!tler Youth’.
Natalie Winters of The National Pulse (link takes you to her story about it) unearthed a video in which BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors did exactly that. Here is that video:
Video Transcript (Reportedly taken in 2010):
“I was at the art publications table today, and I was speaking to the young person from Arizona who’s trying to fight SB1070. He grabbed a book and said it’s like Mao’s Red Book. [Large, excited smile] And I was like, ‘man, that’s what I was thinking!’ [Laughter] And it was just really cool to hear him make that connection. I was like, how about you buy 10-15 of these books and you all have a youth, like organizing group, where you talk about it, and you really try to engage this. And you could just kinda, we need to build off of this. And so, that leads me to a point I actually wanted to focus on today, which is, I think I have a really important role in speaking to youth. Maybe it’s because I came into the movement at 17 and a half, and so I have like a knack for knowing how to organize young people into this organization and how to teach them this politic and then now organize other people…”
Because what America needs more than anything right now is a book of radicalizing Marxist slogans, right?
Sorry chica, we can think of a lot of things that America needs more than the Dollar Store version of Hitler Youth. For example:
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
