"Truth seldom is pleasant; it is almost invariably bitter. A loss of courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days..." Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Commencement address at Harvard University , June 8, 1978

KARL MARX: RACIST?
Do you know makes me laugh? When you see those losers who hold rallies denouncing all nationalists as racists and anti-Semites, while holding Karl Marx in high esteem as a figure for egalitarianism. The reason I find this odd is because Karl Marx was in fact an open racist and his pal Engels was a proud supporter of the slave trade.
Let me elaborate on this. Concerning the annexation of California after the American-Mexican war Marx wrote:
“Without violence, nothing is accomplished in history,” he then asked, “is it a misfortune that magnificent California was seized from the lazy Mexicans who did not know what to do with it?”
Friedrich Engels, Marx’s co-author of the “Manifesto of the Communist Party” added:
“In America we have witnessed the conquest of Mexico and have rejoiced in it. It is to the interest of its own development that Mexico will be placed under tutelage of the United States.”
In regards to his socialist rival, Ferdinand Lassalle, Marx wrote:
“… It is now completely clear to me that he, as is proved by his cranial formation and his hair, descends from the negroes from Egypt, assuming that his mother or grandmother had not interbred with a nigger. Now this union of Judaism and Germanism with a basic negro substance must produce a peculiar product. The obtrusiveness of the fellow is also nigger like.”
Engels shared much of Marx’s racist beliefs. In 1887, Paul Lafergue who was Marx’s son in Law, was a candidate for a council seat in a Paris district that contained a zoo. Engels claimed Paul had “ one eighth or one twelfth nigger blood.” In April 1887 in a letter to Paul’s wife, Engels wrote the following:
“Being in his quality as a nigger, a degree nearer to the rest of the animal kingdom than the rest of us, he is undoubtedly the most appropriate representative of that district.”
I could go on, but you get the point.
It is strange how the socialists of today hold these two in high regard. While, yes they did oppose capitalism, however, one of the reasons they opposed capitalism is because of its anti-slavery stance.
Now before you make the assumption that I advocate what Marx and Engels believed in, I would like to point out that, as a nationalist, such beliefs would be contradictory to British Nationalist Values. As nationalists, we believe that every nation and people has the right to self determination, and the freedom to govern themselves, regardless of race, creed or religion. We condemn the use of slaves in any context.
