In a recent column in the Times-Herald a writer mentioned "Marxist-based organization(s)," presumably referring to "Black Lives Matter."

This is ignorant, juvenile name calling. There's no relation between the objectives of the BLM movement and the teachings of Karl Marx.

This is an echo of the "red scare" hysteria of the 1950s McCarthy era. This country should be better than this.

Reject hate and ignorance.
