So Why Not Cancel Leftist Karl Marx?
Discussion posted by: Arye ben-Shaoul
Racism and Jew-hate were second nature to socialism’s Godfather. In a cancel culture targeting everyone from Confederate to Union generals, Columbus to Winston Churchill, Francis Scott Key to even Abraham Lincoln and all of Mt. Rushmore, and where the racial statements and attitudes of every historical figure are scrutinized, it’s funny who gets a pass. A 16-foot-tall bronzed Vladimir Lenin stands unscathed in liberal Seattle, and a new monument to the Bolshevik godfather just went up in Germany. Particularly curious, one wonders why Karl Marx goes untouched. There are monuments to Marx in Europe, one just erected in 2018.
