This is a chapter from David Horowitz’s book, The Black Book of the American Left, Vol 1. To my shame and without his permission I have copied from his book. I thought it was time for him to make reparations for being a White Jew. If he had been Black, I would not have redistributed his property in this fashion. I am grateful that he is not a Black Jew or an albino Negro. This would have caused a schizophrenic paradox. I don’t even want to think about what the ramifications would have been. I would have to have somehow redistributed his work for being White and yet at the same time given him some reparations for being Black; I shudder to think. Fortunately for me, he is a White Jew and this is the price he must pay for “The Audacity of Hope and Change”. The Lord hold me blameless for this plagiarism since we all know that the “end justifies the means”. Having read this chapter in Mr. Horowitz’s book, I’m starting to feel like there may yet be a few remaining that are not drunk on the Jim Jones Kool-aid. I was just about ready to head for my cave reservation and hang up my spikes. I was fully relating to Elijah, as recorded in the 1st Book of Kings after he had slain the false prophets of Baal (the communists of yesteryear; there is nothing new under the sun):
1 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.
2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time.
3 And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.
4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.
Let me introduce Mr. Horowitz’s speech in the form of a Pdf. file at the bottom of this page, predicated by some long forgotten words regarding Elijah the prophet, again recorded in the 1st Book of Kings:
9 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
15 And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
