Hearing the Biden had replaced the bust of Winston Churchill with one of Caesar Chavez reminded me of how the progressive left fictionalizes their heroes by rewriting their history and changing their legacy into something completely unrecognizable as the truth.
And these are the propagandists who are demanding conservatives sign a loyalty oath and only communicate in their Newspeak.
Here are a few examples:
Fictionalized Caesar Chavez: Hero of immigrants, champion of People of Color.
Real Caesar Chavez: Violent anti-illegal immigration opponent who organized a defense of the southern border, beating Mexican illegals with chains to turn them back, champion of labor unions and communist.
Fictionalized Che Guevara: Freedom fighter, beloved man of the people.
Real Che Guevara: State sanctioned serial killer, feared and hated by the people.
Fictionalized Earth Day founder Ira Einhorn: peace activist, naturalist and warrior for the environment.
Real Earth Day founder Ira Einhorn: Insane murderer who killed his ex-girlfriend and composted her in a trunk, jumped bail and went on the run for 23 years, and when captured, claimed she had been killed by CIA agents who framed him for the crime because he knew too much about the agency’s paranormal military research.
Fictionalized Mumia Abu Jamal: innocent political prisoner, a political activist and journalist.
Real Mumia Abu Jamal: Radical race warrior who was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 1982 for the 1981 assassination of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.
Fictionalized Assata Shakur (Joanne Chesimard): Hero of the revolution, persecuted freedom fighter.
Real Assata Shakur (Joanne Chesimard): Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground member and active participant in an attempt to steal $1.6 million from a Brink’s armored truck. In the ensuing firefight, one of three Brink’s guards was shot to death and another was wounded. Convicted of being an accomplice in the first-degree murder of State Trooper Werner Foerster during a getaway shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973.
Here’s some real history about the progenitors of collectivism and 60’a radicals (who have taught our children) for the youngsters who love ANTIFA and BLM and think communism is pure and a grand idea:
– Karl Marx: born into a wealthy Jewish family, his father was the leading lawyer in Trier, Germany – his family owned a number of Moselle vineyards. Marx spent his early college years drinking, gambling and running up debts. Father yanked him out of the University of Bonn and sent him to Berlin to attend university after he participated in a duel. He avoided military service when he turned eighteen due to a condition referred to as a “weak chest.” While living in England, he railed about the conditions of the British factories, yet never actually visited one. Died penniless and stateless – between 9 and 11 people attended his funeral. Atheist.
– Friedrich Engels: the eldest son of a wealthy German cotton importer/industrialist. After he died, he left an estate worth $4.8 million to Marx’s daughters. Raised a Christian, became an atheist.
– Vladimir Ilyich Lenin: Born to a wealthy middle-class family in Simbirsk. Baptized into the Russian Orthodox Church, renounced God at 16. Atheist.
– Josef Stalin: Son of a cobbler and a housemaid. Father was abusive and beat him and his mother. Educated at the Tiflis Spiritual Seminary of the Georgian Orthodox Church, became an atheist.
– Leon Trotsky: born the fifth child of eight of well-to-do Jewish farmers. Lost battle for control of the Russian communist movement to Lenin and Stalin – Stalin had him assassinated during his exile to Mexico. Atheist.
– Mao: son of a wealthy farmer. Father grew wealthy via capitalism but was a strict disciplinarian and beat Mao and his siblings. Raised Buddhist, became an atheist.
– Pol Pot: born into a wealthy upper middle class family in Cambodia. While attending Catholic school, he lived with his cousin, she a member of the Royal Ballet and the mother of a child of the Cambodian king – the Crown Prince – his sister was also concubine of King Monivong. Pot grew up in the palace of the King through his relationships with these women. Traveled to Paris for university where he failed exams three years running but was radicalized there. Atheist.
– Bill Ayers: born into a wealthy family, attended private schools. Father was Thomas G. Ayers, who was Chairman and CEO of Commonwealth Edison (1973 to 1980), and for whom Northwestern’s Thomas G. Ayers College of Commerce and Industry was named. Ayers is a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, formerly holding the titles of Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar.
– Bernadine Dohrn: born into an upper middle class family. Dohrn graduated from Whitefish Bay High School where she was a cheerleader, treasurer of the Modern Dance Club, a member of the National Honor Society, and editor of the school newspaper. Bernadine is now Clinical Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern Law School.
– Kathy Boudin: born into a family with a Muslim mother and a 1/2 Jewish Father, with a long left-wing history, and she was raised in Greenwich Village, New York. She attended kindergarten at the Little Red School House and its high school, the Elisabeth Irwin High School in Manhattan. Although she went to Bryn Mawr College intending to prepare for medical school, her interests quickly turned to politics. 1965, her last year at Bryn Mawr was spent studying in the Soviet Union. She was paid 75 rubles a month by the Soviet government and, according to her résumé, taught on a Soviet collective farm. Her great-uncle was Louis B. Boudin, a Marxist theorist. Her father, Leonard Boudin, grew wealthy as a communist legal defender and member of the National Lawyer’s Guild, he was the law partner of Victor Rabinowitz, himself counsel to numerous left-wing organizations. Kathy’s older brother, Michael Boudin, is currently a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. After serving 22 years in federal prison for her role in a bombing that killed two police officers and an armored car guard, Kathy taught at Columbia and was recently honored by the New York University Law School program as its Rose Scheinberg Scholar in Residence.
Commonalities: Most had wealthy families, or were wealthy themselves – or at least had access to privilege. Most found radicalism in academia, some had violent upbringings. Most grew up in religious families, many Jewish, and yet became atheists.
Out of all the “great” ones, Stalin was the only one who actually experienced a poor upbringing.
