“2. We Want Full Employment For Our People.”Sounds noble. Who could argue with that? Keep reading about how they want to do it.
“We believe that the federal government is responsible and obligated to give every man employment or a guaranteed income. We believe that if the White American businessmen will not give full employment, then the means of production should be taken from the businessmen and placed in the community so that the people of the community can organize and employ all of its people and give a high standard of living.”Communism didn’t work when they controlled the Soviet Union. It didn’t work when they controlled China and ran it according to their principles. It isn’t working in Cuba. Communism wants to guarantee a “high standard of living” even to people who have not earned it. What happens is the political bosses live high and the rest of the people stand in bread lines.
I could go on. It shows a willful blindness and ignorance, if not evil intent, to glorify the Black Panther Party to a bunch of middle school children who are even more ignorant than the adults in their lives, if such a thing is possible.
What is also interesting is the extensive quotation of the Declaration of Independence at the end. I have to hand it to them there. It advocates revolution. So do they.
Should we be listening?
