ASU West Event on Black Panthers, Young Lords, and Young Patriots
armed communist revolution?
Do you ever wonder where leftists get their ideas about defunding police, structural racism, reparations, calls for armed revolution, decolonizing, and antiracism? Many think these have just sprung up in the last decade or two. But they are the teachings of groups like the Black Panthers and Young Lords. ASU administrators have been pushing the ideas of decolonizing in ASU classes and college bylaws and are now hosting events to popularize them among students. When administrators host these events there is a power differential that privileges these ideas and causes the chilling effect on faculty who might want to disagree.
ASU West’s New College is sponsoring an event hosted by an administrator to screen a movie featuring the Black Panthers, Young Lords, and Young Patriots. These are three groups from Chicago that called for armed revolution. For some context, you may remember that last semester, the Lewis Center held an event titled “Health, Wealth, and Happiness” featuring Dennis Prager and opening remarks by Charlie Kirk. A majority of the honors professors denounced this event as hateful and bigoted. Where are they now as this film is shown?
You probably don’t need an introduction to the Black Panthers. But you can look at their ten-point program, which calls for a communist government providing all citizens jobs and food. They opposed capitalism and are known for their violence against police. The Young Lords were a Puerto Rican revolutionary group. Their symbol was a hand holding up a rifle. Their thirteen-point program calls for the end of capitalism and promotes communism. They claim armed struggle is necessary for liberation. The Young Patriots were a left-wing white Southerners group. They had an eleven-point program similar to the Black Panther’s ten points.
These 10-11-13 point programs read like the syllabus of many ASU professors. Professors are also trying to impose these values onto ASU’s New College Bylaws. When you point out that such professors are Marxists, they will criticize you for seeing Marxism everywhere. But these three groups embraced their communism. Why do the professors who look up to these groups try to hide it? Each of them claimed that the United States is structurally racist and in need of a revolution. This is the same thing you hear from professors at ASU.
How is that different from MLK? Here is the difference. Where these groups advocated armed communist revolution, MLK advocated for the love of God and neighbor. Where these groups make vague claims about “structural racism,” MLK identified specific violations of the natural and civil law and asked for these to be rectified.
The current professor who claims structural racism must be changed is following in the path of these types of groups. They have departed from MLK’s vision. As you read about these groups, you realize how hate-filled these leftist professors are. They were brought up with this hatred and have now made it their mission as professors to teach it to the next generation. They see racism everywhere because that is all they think about when they aren’t thinking about sexuality.
Parents and students, you need to know what you will be getting from your professors. State legislators, please help, as these groups are idealized by professors who teach at State Universities.
