Prussian-born “philosopher” and writer Karl Marx wasn’t the first person to call himself a socialist, but his name has become nearly synonymous with the far-left at large as more progressives begin to embrace the label.
Recently, demonstrations that began as a call for police reform have morphed into violent riots by people advocating for the end of capitalism. Lost in all this was the supposed goal to end systemic racism in law enforcement and American society. Now, we have footage of Black Lives Matter leaders admitting that they are “trained Marxists,” and that this is about much more than adopting more modern views about race.
Here’s the irony about all of this: Karl Marx would probably have taken no issue at all with the footage of Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin pressing his knee into the back of George Floyd’s neck. This is because Marx himself was an open racist, and wrote about his views on racial inequality extensively.
Honestly, we’re not sure how much of this we should publish, because the language Marx used to describe people of African descent is pretty appalling. He also really had it out for Jewish people, which is strange considering his own heritage.
“What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering,” Marx wrote in 1844. “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.”
Here’s another one. This time, he drops the “n-bomb” to describe a Jewish person with Sub-Saharan heritage.
“The Jewish n****r Lassalle who, I’m glad to say, is leaving at the end of this week, has happily lost another 5,000 talers in an ill-judged speculation,” Marx said in a 1862 letter to partner Freidrich Engels. “The chap would sooner throw money down the drain than lend it to a ‘friend,’ even though his interest and capital were guaranteed…It is now quite plain to me—as the shape of his head and the way his hair grows also testify—that he is descended from the negroes who accompanied Moses’ flight from Egypt (unless his mother or paternal grandmother interbred with a n****r).
You really can’t make this up.
So, why does the political movement that supposedly supports racial harmony and equality worship this disgusting human being? The Daily Wire’s Andrew Klavan has a theory in the video below.
