Why, I’ll bet that Ms. Troll didn’t even read the article that you posted, Paul. From the article:’Glenn Beck promoted The Red Network: A “Who… See More’s Who” and Handbook of Radicalism for Patriots, stating that the book is “from people who were doing what we’re doing now. We now are documenting who all of these people are.” However, the book’s author, Elizabeth Dilling, was a virulent anti-Semite, and The Red Network itself contains numerous passages that espouse anti-Semitism and racism.’
From the Dilling book: ‘The colored people are a sincerely religious race. As long as they stayed in Africa un-Christianized, they remained, as did pagan white men, savages. Their pagan brothers in Africa today are savages, while in a comparatively few years, under the opportunities of the American government and the inspiration of Christianity, the American Negroes have acquired professions, property, banks, homes, and produced a rising class of refined, home loving people. This is far more remarkable than that many Negroes are still backward. The Reds play upon the Negroes’ love of their own people and represent them as persecuted in order to inflame them against the very white people who have in reality given the colored race far greater opportunities than their fellow negroes would give them in Africa today.’
Apparently, there are virulent anti-Semitic passages in the book as well. So, do you think that Elizabeth Dilling is hateful? A simple “yes” or “no” will do.
Let me summarize this at a grade-school level. The author, Elizabeth Dilling, whose book, “The Red Network: A ‘Who… See More’s Who’ and Handbook of Radicalism for Patriots,” Glenn Beck is currently promoting enthusiastically, wrote that “The Reds,” presumably card-carrying Communists, misrepresent “The Negroes,” as she puts it, as persecuted by the very white people whose ancestors brought them to this continent and Christianized them.In other words, Beck’s friend, Dilling, doesn’t think that Blacks were- or are being persecuted. I disagree.
