Reparations Is A Total Scam!

by Al Benson Jr.

According to Wikipedia, Rep. Cori Bush from Missouri is a Black Lives Matter activist. She is also a willing participant in the ongoing “reparations” scam. In pending legislation Rep. Bush called on Congress to adopt measures “aimed at righting historic wrongs, including urging the federal government to issue federal reparations to black Americans…a minimum of $14 trillion would be needed ‘to eliminate the racial wealth gap that currently exists between black and white Americans’ the resolution argues! This bill, HR 414, is ridiculous and needs to be voted down resoundingly! Where does this woman think this $14 trillion is coming from, the Tooth Fairy? Or does she think the government can just print it and pass it out? If she does, does she have any idea of what such an act will do to the inflation level in this country? And the rank inflation won’t only hit white folks!

The “reparations scam” is just that–a scam. In an article on for 5/11/23, writer Bob Barr, a former member of Congress, observed: “Neither history nor common sense mean anything to those demanding ‘racial reparations,’…” Barr then went on to list all the civil rights legislation, from the second 13th Amendment up to and including the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Barr duly noted: “In much the same way that junk science has provided the justification for New York Governor Kathy Hochul to ban the use of natural gas in new construction, ‘junk history’ is at the center of the racial reparations movement…At a recent public forum where Californians could comment on the proposed handouts (reparations) a ‘Rev. Tony Peirce’ boisterously demanded that the only fair dollar figure to be apportioned to him and his fellow black citizens was $200 million apiece…this episode encapsulates the junk history on which reparations advocates appear to justify their cause–that the anecdotal ’40 acres and a mule of 1865 is today worth a cool $200 million. It is doubtful Rev. Peirce or many of the others clamoring for massive monetary reparations for past–and in fact, continuing–wrongs understand or much care about the actual historic context or meaning of the ‘forty acres and a mule’ narrative.” To these people “history” is just another meaningless word. They want the cash, baby, and they want it now!

According to for 1/5/23 “California is considering paying ‘reparations’ to black Californians who are directly descended from enslaved people, which may surprise most Californians. After all, slavery was never legal in the Golden State.” But that fact makes no difference whatever. Governor Newsome feels he has a golden opportunity to garner black votes whether he decides to run for president (if the Democratic establishment lets him) or just run for governor again.

The article noted, quite accurately, that “To understand how slavery is applicable to California one must sift through the reports 500 pages of convoluted logic common to the victim industry in America…” The “report” goes into how slavery continues to “physically and mentally harm African Americans today.” And the article observes, again, accurately, that “The task force is not recommending reparations for slavery, but rather for discrimination.” The entire reparations scam is an exercise in political bovine fertilizer! In California it amounts to a giant vote-buying scam, as well as a major split in race relations, which may also be an alternate reason for it. And who will pay for all these black folks in California getting $200 million apiece–will it be white folks, Hispanic folks, and Oriental folks? That’ll go over real big with them!

An article on for 4/30/22 duly observed that: “Ten years ago, the idea of ‘reparations’ sat on the political fringe in America. The question of whether or not compensation should have been paid to former slaves had died out. Not least because by the start of the 21st century no one in America had actually suffered from slavery…But there’s a tendency in our own age which does not allow wounds to mend or heal. Indeed, there is a movement that locates long-healed wounds in order to rip them open again. And then complain about the hurt caused to themselves.” And of course, the idea of scamming big bucks from people who never had anything to do with slavery really appeals to them. They want to be able to laugh at us poor suckers all the way to the bank. We want that cash, baby, anyway we can get it–honest, dishonest, makes no difference!

Every race of people in the world has either practiced slavery and been enslaved to some extent. Do they all deserve reparations? If not, why not? Why is it only blacks that deserve it? Every other race has put the issues of slavery and discrimination behind them, but not blacks (and all blacks don’t fit into this category) but many blacks seem to thrive on it. It’s like they have a never-ending grievance with the rest of the world and want to be paid to forget it (if ever they will).

The leftists among us, (to which our public schools are adding a growing number) are using this issue to divide the races one from the other, so we wont ever sit down together and talk to one another about how all of us are being taken to the cleaners. Reparations is a big part of the leftist agenda to cause racial division and we need to expose it for the racial scam that it is.


Those Government Indoctrination Centers We Refer To As Schools

by Al Benson Jr.

One government indoctrination center in Vermont has decided to eliminate the words male and female from the 5th grade curriculum. Students can’t use the words boy and girl in school because, after all, this school is in the process of becoming woke, and using such antiquated terms as boy and girl omits the other 126 sexes some flaky scientists and politicians have only recently informed us are now in existence. How many other public schools are like this one nationwide? More than you’d like to think about. But you’d better start thinking about it because the Theology of Woke will be coming to a public school near you if it’s not already there.

In the April 10th issue of the New American magazine a homeschooling dad commented on what he learned about public schools after he removed his son from one. He observed: “I’ve learned a lot since my son first attended kindergarten. The crux of it is that government schools are causing harm to our children, and they’re designed in a way that quashes the genius all children are born with. The architects of government schools, people such as Horace Mann and John Dewey, were socialists who sought to create little socialists who would grow up into big, adult socialists and turn America into one, big, happy socialist utopia.”

The dad continued: “Government schools have wasted generations of American genius and are a leading reason for the chaos and national self-hate destroying our society today. Government schools are a major reason the United States is no longer on the promising path it once was…The good news is that more than 1.2 million have been pulled out of American government schools just in the last two years, which has the regime propaganda outlets, such as the New York Times, freaking out…Schools pushing racist ideologies such as Critical Race Theory and sexually perverted books have also made it easier for parents to justify saving their children…So, yes, enrollment is plunging. But not fast enough. In perfect world, the schools would be emptied out tomorrow, and the U.S. Department of Education shuttered for good.”

The article noted that not all patriotic and conservative parents are convinced that public schools are the lost cause they really are. Many still believe they can reform or “take back” the public schools and that those schools were different when they attended them. Well, they were somewhat different, but that difference is only relative. They weren’t as openly radical years ago because they didn’t dare to be. Doing that would have given the game away, the way it did in Kanawha County, West Virginia in 1974. When parents there at that time saw what the schools were doing to their kids they revolted and managed to keep the schools shut down for a month. Eventually their protest was beaten to death, literally. A testimony to what happens to those who openly oppose Big Brother’s government education system!

I imagine if such happened today the parents would just be jailed as domestic terrorists and the omnipotent state would seize their kids and raise them as compliant little socialists, as was the vision of Mann and Dewey. It never occurs to that many parents to do some homework and find out that public schools have been getting progressively worse since at least the 1850s. Those who are willing to do the homework after defending public schools are in for quite a rude awakening. Unfortunately, Christian parents seem most derelict in this area. And I speak from experience here after talking with many of them. They are not willing to do the homework. All they want to do is defend the government schools no matter what–and tell me what wonderful sports or music programs those schools have–to which I reply–“You’re willing to trade your kid’s souls for a good sports program?” That usually ends the conversation, because whether they answer or not, their reply is yes, without even thinking about it! If we lose our country, which is a real possibility right now, it will be because we let the Lord’s enemies educate our children, and when we were told about it we did nothing to change it.

Is Antifa An Arm Of The Democratic Establishment?

by Al Benson Jr.

One of the Fox News commentators recently made the statement that Antifa is an arm of the Democratic Establishment that is used to get rid of a sitting president. They were used against Trump in 2020. They are now being used against Biden in the riots in Atlanta. CNN aids those who benefit from Antifa’s violence. A top Democrat’s son was arrested in Boston at an Antifa event. It would seem that many Democrats actively promote violent terrorism.

Let’s get one thing straight here. Antifa is not, I repeat not, anti-fascist. They are fascists and are on the political left every bit as much as the Communists. They are exactly what they claim to be opposed to. That’s a favorite tactic of the left–claim to be opposed to what you actually are. You’d be surprised to how many people that fools. It’s past time to stop defending Antifa and declare them a terrorist organization. The children of many of the rich and privileged are turning into Antifa monsters, just like the kids of the rich turned into SDS monsters back in the 1970s. We should say here that Antifa is the real “white supremacy” threat

Now, Antifa is using the death of a black man in Memphis, who was beaten to death by five black policemen, as an excuse to justify race riots across the country. So how is the beating of a black man by five black cops an example of “white supremacy”? That’s a hard one to answer, but not to worry, the leftists are at work coming up with a convoluted response that probably won’t make much sense, but the “news” media will pick it up and run with it anyway. That’s what they’re paid to do.

Antifa has been using the shameful Memphis incident to justify violence. Their motto: “Burn it all down.” Antifa has been telling rioters to “bring rocks, pipes, Kerosene.” They would love to be able to do what they did in Portland in 2020, because everybody is supposed to be treated to the lesson that–no matter what happens or who did it, it’s always Whitey’s fault!

Cities around the country were preparing for riots. And leave it to “Rev.” Al Sharpton to blame “white racism” for five black cops beating a black man to death! No matter who does what to who, the race baiters always manage to twist the facts so it’s the white man’s fault. No surprise there. Communists have fanned the flames of racial strife in this country and around the world for decades. I’ve often wondered, if they were able to get rid of all us whites from off the face of the earth, who they would then blame for all their problems. Because their problems would not go away with us gone–so they’d have to end up locating another scapegoat.

Independence Day–Are We Really Free?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The title to this article is a rhetorical question. Anyone with a brain already knows the answer and doesn’t need me to tell him. Heck, no, this country is not a free country. In fact it has not been free since the Lincoln administration. We have had the illusion of freedom, with just enough “house privileges” from our federal master to keep us pacified while he reached for total control over our lives. With Harris/Biden in the White (Red) House he now feels that goal is within his grasp and he is getting impatient to grasp it in his hot little socialist hand.

A conservative commentator recently said that the New World Order has successfully taken control of the federal government. When you look at what is now going on it is hard to argue too much with his assessment.

Just about every person Harris/Biden has picked for any official position is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, which means that, in reality, the CFR is running the country, not Biden. Biden is nothing more than their vehicle through which they take total control, if he is even cognizant of what is going on. Biden was their transmission belt to power and when he has accomplished all he can to install them, they will simply disconnect him and put him out to pasture, where he should have been in the first place.

Donald Trump was a major speed bump in the New World Order’s agenda to reduce the US to a banana republic. So everything Trump did had to be undone as quickly as possible. Stealing the election from him was a major first step and keeping him out of office has to be their logical next step. While Trump was not able to restore freedom to America, at least he tried. He is the only president in my lifetime that tried. But I think he underestimated the vice-grip the New World Order had on this country at least since the beginning of the 20th century.

So what about “freedom” in America? Ask the good folks in the South how “free” they are to celebrate their history and heritage. That history and heritage, indeed their very culture, has been under constant assault for at least three decades and probably longer. Their flags and monuments have been torn down, desecrated and vandalized to the point where many of them need a county sheriff to protect them if they go to a cemetery to commemorate the grave of one of their fallen heroes. So how “free” are they? The radical socialists and communists in this country want to destroy not only their history and culture, but them as well.

And these same communists and socialists want to destroy the ranching and farming culture of the far West. After all, who needs real beef when they can be forced to buy Bill Gates’ synthetic phony. It’s all about cultural genocide and Authentic American cultures comprised of people who dare to think for themselves must be destroyed because they are major impediments to the agenda of the New World Order. They will not willingly be slaves to that Order so they have to go!

You want to know who is really free in this country? How about Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and a whole host of other far left groups? They can burn, destroy, pillage and vandalize to their heart’s content and the prostitute press labels them as “peaceful protesters.” The police won’t dare to touch them and the cities they loot and burn have wicked politicians who label what they are doing as “reparations.” The far left can intimidate people with impunity and if those people dare to resist then they are arrested because as we all know, anyone resisting the far left is automatically a “domestic terrorist.”

So, in light of all this, please tell me how “free we are this Independence day!

How About Secession From Oregon To Idaho?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Think the question of secession is dead? Think again. Contrary to the fond wishes of most leftists and even many who tell us they are “conservatives” this question is not going away anytime soon. I was laughed at back in the 1990s for writing about secession back then. Many so-called “conservatives” I knew snickered behind my back about what I wrote. I wonder if they are still doing that. I don’t hear from any of them anymore–not that I miss the lack of contact.

But, whether they still laugh or not, the secession question still continues to arise. Just yesterday, 5/19, I read an article on by Jack Phillips entitled Oregon Counties Vote to Secede Into Idaho.

Mr. Phillips observed that: “Several counties in Oregon on May 18 voted to consider joining the state of Idaho, which is part of a long-shot movement to break away from the state that has long been dominated by politicians in Portland. Voters in Malheur, Sherman, Grant, Baker, and Lake counties approved various measures that require county officials to take steps to look into moving the Idaho border west to incorporate the counties. The grassroots group Move Oregon’s Border for a Greater Idaho is aiming to have the eastern counties–which are mostly rural–join Idaho because they believe they would be better off with Idaho’s more conservative political leadership.”

It’s no secret that the leftist leadership in Portland has little use for the ranching and farming industry and culture in their state. When BLM and Antifa were torching their city back last year, what did they do to prevent that? From what I understand, not all that much. So who is naive enough to think they give a tinker’s damn about the ranchers and farmers in Oregon?

One of the petitioners in this effort is Mike McCarter and he said: “This election proves that rural Oregon wants out of Oregon. If Oregon really believes in liberal values such as self-determination, the legislature won’t hold our counties captive against our will…” McCarter noted last year that this bid to join Idaho is more of a “lifestyle values judgment” that accentuates the differences between rural and urban populations

Phillips noted in his article that “Oregon’s Jefferson and Union counties already approved measures last year to promote a move to Idaho.” With the Democratic controlled legislature in Oregon this appears to be a long-shot, as their ideas of “self-determination” only seem to operate when they favor the left. Phillips did note that there were precedents for this move but they were earlier in our history–such as Kentucky being created out of Virginia and Maine being created out of Massachusetts. So this is not unheard of in our history–although the way “history” is taught in our public schools today it is all but unknown.

Whether this move from Oregon to Idaho is successful or not, this sort of situation will continue to arise and at some point it will be dealt with in the way it should be because secession was not, and is not, treason as so many today continue to howl about. The day will come–and maybe we should pray for that, that it might be done peacefully this time.

Marxism Is Alive And Well In America Today

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have stated in the past the communism was alive and well in America and, indeed, has been since the 1850s–not the 1950s–but the 1850s. Most folks seem incapable of grasping that fact. It has, however, been written about by several authors and writers over the decades, though most Marxists in our day try to cover that up. They don’t feel you need to be aware of the activities of their spiritual ancestors–and I use the word “spiritual” here because, at root, Marxism is not a political movement, though it manifests itself in the political arena. It is an anti-Christ spiritual movement and part of its agenda is to keep American Christians in the dark as to its real intents.

I recently came across an interesting article by Vasko Kohlmayer on for October 31st of this year. Mr. Kohlmayer seems to have an extensive knowledge and grasp of how Marxism has affected our society in the past century or so. He observes that “Marxism is far from being dead as a worldview. Quite to the contrary, it is very much alive. It shapes–directly or indirectly–the worldview of many in the American intelligentsia, many of whom hold important posts at universities, in the media and in government.” He is right on the money here and I personally know of some instances regarding what he says about some universities or colleges.

He continues: “To be sure, most of these individuals do not openly present themselves as traditional Marxists..” He notes that many of them will even concede that “classical Marxism” is flawed and his its faults. This superficial criticism of Marxism fools lots of people, and it always has. Years ago I read a book written by a Soviet secret policeman who had been situated into Europe during the Second World War. He was told by the spymasters who trained him that he was free to criticize communism on a certain level to give himself credibility but that if they ever heard that he had criticized the principles of Marxism-Leninism then they would come and get him and that would be the final act in his charade.

The same principle holds true today. Kohlmayer notes that their “attitude gives these ideological mutants an air of seeming reasonableness and objectivity. But they will not let go of Marx’s basic assumptions. Having retained Marx’s core ‘insights,’ they either modify his theories on the edges or develop them in new directions. As a result, in the past eighty years we have witnessed a proliferation of philosophies and theoretical systems derived from Marx’s teachings. Here is a partial list: Critical Race Theory; The Frankfurt School; Liberation Theology; Neo-Marxism; Cultural Marxism; Marxist Feminism; Marxist Humanism; Post-Marxism.” This is not the complete list by any means but I have listed the ones most folks might have had some knowledge of.

Kohlmayer tells us that “Even though the theoretical systems above deal with many different aspects of the life of the individual and society, they grow from the same poisoned Marxist root. Yet, despite their ignoble origin most of these schools of thought are considered acceptable if not outright respectable.” That fact alone tells you how deeply penetrated our society has been by the Marxists that lurk among us and who pose as “respectable academics, journalists, politicians or whatever field they exert their influence in.

He cites one example some of you all have probably heard of–Critical race theory. Of that he states: “This Marxist–spawned system has become the de facto worldview in many university departments, particularly in the humanities and social sciences. Astonishingly critical race theory has been routinely taught to employees of the federal government under the guise of sensitivity training.” Someone must have alerted President Trump to this because he issued an executive order ending this “form of Marxist indoctrination.”

Kohlmayer tells us that “Critical race theory is a modern approach to social change, developed from the broader critical theory, which developed out of Marxism.” And he issus us a warning–if we will heed it. He says The decades–long infusion of Marxism into America’s bloodstream has reached a critical level and now we are on the verge of a Marxist coup d’etat.” He notes all the riots and protests in the past few months and the Marxist intent of such groups as Black Lives Matter, whose banners hang in many public schools in this country and in front of some churches.

In a prescient observation Kohlmayer tells us that: “Marxism is thus not some discarded ideology…Marxism is a living creed, forming the motive behind the thinking and actions of those responsible for the present upheaval in the United States. Rather than being irrelevant, Marxism is a powerful and destructive force that threatens to rip America apart.”

That’s a pretty fair country description of what Marxism has been doing in this country for a long time. Maybe we should start asking who funds these Marxist groups because Marxism always needs outside infusions of cash to fund its activities. So who funds them and why? We’ve dealt with some of this in the past. Maybe we need to again.

The Church Neutralized–Part One

by Al Benson Jr.

There has been a systematic neutralizing of the Christian Church that has been going on at least since the 1830s in this country. Those participating in this neutralization have mostly taken the Fabian approach in enacting their agenda–doing it gradually so that most people don’t even realize it has been happening. If you are willing to take a backward look you can begin to see how it has been happening.

Two groups that have promoted this neutralization, at least at their leadership levels, have been Unitarians and Dispensationalists. I don’t contend that the rank and file in these groups are necessarily all aware of this. Many probably are not. But the leadership that has moved them to where they are today has been and is aware of what has been done and what is being done.

In this installment I will deal with the Unitarians, with their mandatory public schools They are the first step in this process. Through people like Horace Mann they worked to downgrade the influence of private Christian schools so they could push their agenda of compulsory public schooling. It is interesting that, in this critical area, the Unitarians took the same approach as did Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto–“Free education for all children in public schools…”

So naturally, Christian children ended up in these public schools–a situation that, sadly, continues to this day because most Christians seem to have lost their sense of discernment about both the origin and the agenda of public schools. Christians should have resisted this in the beginning, but they mostly didn’t. They were conned into going along with it and in succeeding generations their children have been pretty much neutralized. Oh, Bible reading was allowed for quite awhile–morning devotions for the kids and all that. They didn’t dare drop the hammer all at once. That would have been much too apparent and many Christians would have pulled their kids out right away. So they had to gradually draw them in by allowing a little of what Christians were familiar with to keep them comfortable–sort of like putting the lobster in cold water and then heating it up gradually so they won’t notice what’s happening. And it worked! Today many Christians will denigrate Christian schools because they don’t have all the bells and whistles public schools have and they will defend the public school system as though it were mandated in Holy Writ. I know. I have argued with some of them about that over the years. Even evidence of what the public schools have done to children will not change their minds–even when you present them with evidence of the Unitarian/socialist origins of public education. Mostly they don’t want to hear it or see it. And you will be dismissed by them as some sort of “right-wing reactionary.” After all, aren’t public schools right up there with God, motherhood, and apple pie?

The good folks that have succumbed to this mindset have been neutralized and they don’t even begin to realize it. And when I say all this I am not indicting all individual public school teachers. We have a niece that teaches in a public school. She hates it, but unfortunately, she can’t find a Christian school that can or will pay her enough to live on. And that is another whole problem.

Let’s face it. The public schools in our day are, for the most part, blatantly anti-Christian. They will strongly support the Marxist Black Lives Matter group, but let a teacher or a student bring a Bible to school and read a brief passage from it and all hell with break loose! Quoting the Koran in public school is okay, but not the Holy Bible–never the Holy Bible! That’s verboten! And yet Christian parents put up with this. Frankly, I don’t expect this to change anytime soon. Certainly not in my lifetime. There are several good books out there by both R. J. Rushdoony and Samuel Blumenfeld that go into the history of public education in this country. I have listed some of them in previous articles over the years.

The fact that all of this is tolerated by Christian parents is evidence that the Christian Church has, in the main, been neutralized. The next installment of this article will be almost guaranteed to make lots of good folks mad at me, but what I will say has to be said.

Communism–A Religion of Terrorism

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Whittaker Chambers, the author of Witness is quite blunt about what makes communism really tick. He has written: “The Communist Party, despite occasional pious statements to the contrary, is a terrorist organization. Its disclaimers are for the record. But its record of kidnappings, assassinations, and murders makes the actions of the old Terror Brigade of the Socialist Revolutionary Party look merely romantic. No argument can reach the Communist Party unless it sees in it some self-serving advantage. It respects only force.” To update a bit, you can say the exact same thing about these communist groups operating in this country today–Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and a host of others. Their willful depredations in many of our major cities show that they only respect force–and when the police are ordered to stand down in the face of their planned destruction then there is no force to detract them from doing whatever they want.

To see the planned terrorism of the Communists in action Chambers told us a bit about the purges under Stalin. These were purges in which the Communist state even killed many of its own. Chambers told us: “This great massacre, probably the greatest in history, was deliberately planned and executed. In the interest of the Revolution…the group of Communists headed by Stalin decided that the historical situation through which the world and the Communist Party was passing, justified them in killing off those Communists who opposed their indispensable strategy and tactics. Those killed have been estimated from several hundred thousand to several million men and women. The process took about three years, 1935 through 1938. Its immediate purpose was to give the Stalinists absolute control of the Communist Party and the Soviet government, then of the Red Army, then of the secret police (G.P.U.).” So if you had some in your own Party that dared to disagree with you on some minor point you just killed them off…The charge on which they were one and all destroyed, the charge that they had betrayed their handiwork, was incredible. They were the Communist Party. If the charge were true, then every other Communist had given his life for a fraud. If the charge was false, then every other Communist was giving his life for a fraud.”

You have to realize that there was no room for divergences of opinion among communists. You adhered to the Party line or you were tomorrow’s cannon fodder. The fact that the Party line might change from one day to the next made no difference. The Stalin-Hitler pact was one instance of this. The Party line changed literally overnight and faithful Party members were automatically expected to go with the flow–and heaven help those who dared to disagree!

Chambers wrote about Communism that “denies the soul in the name of the mind.” And he gave us a quote–“Man cannot organize the world for himself without God; without God man can only organize the world against man.” The French Revolution proved that. And the Marxist mentalities among us today still have not learned that lesson after over two hundred years. Their current attacks on the white race have shown that they have learned nothing. I have no doubt whatever that if they felt their attacks on us would be tolerated they would cheerfully kill millions of us. Maybe at this point what they are afraid of is that many of us will shoot back. Communists are really stingy when it comes to spilling their own blood. They love “doing it unto others” but they don’t want it “done unto them.”

I recall, in the late 1970s, an article I read about four communist terrorists that went into a church in South Africa, armed with AK 47s and started shooting helpless church members. There was one man in the congregation that was armed with a 38 revolver and he shot back at the Red thugs wounding one of them. That was enough for them. The communist thugs, AK 47s and all, fled the scene, faced down by one lone man with a 38! Most communists are really cowards when they meet any resistance.

So the communist faith is one that promotes terrorism–and the one thing they fear is resistance. Determined resistance usually seems to deter them. The problem today is–will anyone give them determined resistance?

I have a friend who is a keen observer of the world situation and from time to time he offers me some biting comments. In response to my last article he said the following–“Add to this the Higher Criticism and the heavy infiltration by Communists into the church and the seminaries and we have a church that is not able to stop this onslaught against this nation. By this means Christianity has been reduced to a spectator’ sport.” While there are obviously some exceptions to this, I am afraid there are not nearly enough to make a difference at the national level. And a watered-down church, with watered-down doctrine is not nearly strong enough to resist not only national terrorism, but also theological terrorism in some form.

Black Lives Matter and Communists and Spiritualists

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been following the leftist Black Lives Matter movement recently and have noted how many universities, churches, and public schools seem to have embraced it. All I can say about this is that the leadership in these groups is either hopelessly naive or they are in sympathy with the leftist agenda promoted by BLM. I have my own opinion on this but readers will have to form their own opinions.

The publisher of our conservative weekly paper here The Ouachita Citizen noted this situation in regard to a university right here in Louisiana in the September 17th issue of the paper and he wondered if the university was aware that it was supporting a group with Marxist principles. My guess would be they are and that’s okay with them.

In a recent issue of the New American Magazine writer James Murphy noted that “If you needed anymore evidence that Black Lives Matter is, at its heart, a Marxist sub-group intent on overthrowing capitalism and the American way of life, consider the following. The advocacy group Black Futures Lab, which lists BLM founder Alicia Garza as its principal, is ‘fiscally supported’ by the pro-Communist Chinese group Chinese Progressive Association (CPA). Garza–who was described by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors as a ‘trained Marxist’ who is ‘super-versed on…ideological theories–helped to create the Black Futures Lab in 2018…Among the stunts CPA has pulled over the years was to hoist a Chinese Communist flag on Boston’s City Plaza last September to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Communist takeover of China.”

Lest you think that Black Lives Matter is just a political movement, there was also an article on for September 8th of this year by Dan Burke called The Occult Spirituality of Black Lives Matter. This seems to be a Catholic publication but the author is right on target on this issue.

He quotes Patrisse Cullors where she says: “In my tradition you offer things that your loved ones who have passed away would want. Whether its like honey or tobacco…things like that…It is important that we be in direct relationship with the dead. Hashtags for us are way more than a hashtag. It is literally almost resurrecting spirits that are going to work through us to get the work done.” And Burke observes that Melina Abdullah concurs “What happens as we invoke those names is the invocation of their names that goes beyond remembering them. We call out our ancestors, we call them out for specific purposes.”

Another commentator familiar with this said “Christians, How much evidence do you need? It’s right in front of you. She told you that every time the hashtag is shared it is not just a hashtag. There are spirits of the dead that we are invoking. Every time they mention the name ‘Say his name–George Floyd’–that is a seance. That is calling forth the dead spirit to invoke chaos on the nation..Everything we have seen go on, buildings burning, all of that, there are witches laughing…They are laughing at how complicit the Church has been.”

I have to agree with his assessment here. Churches have been complicit, probably because they don’t know the real truth about Black Lives Matter, but possibly because some of them do and they are willing to support Marxist subversives over the objections of their congregations. Churches supporting communism would not be a new situation. I’ve seen churches supporting Marxism for over 50 years and it no doubt went on long before that.

As for colleges and universities supporting Marxism, that, too, has been going on since before I was alive. The absolute last people that seem to figure this out are the parents who subject their kids to that Marxist indoctrination and pay the big bucks so their kid’s loyalties can be tampered with. They never seem to get it–even when you explain it to them.

And then there are the public schools whose foundations are Unitarian and socialist. The parents with kids in them don’t seem to get it either, at least not most of the ones I have talked to. So what do you do? You keep on throwing the truth at the wall of ignorance and praying that the Lord will let some of it stick.

The truth about Black Lives Matter is out there for those willing to look.

This material is passed along by Al Benson Jr. It is not original with me. It was sent to me by a friend in the Upper South and I felt it was important to pass it along.

Too many think Black Lives Matter is just a spontaneous group formed to speak out against injustices to black folks. This article gives the complete lie to such foolishness.
