Off with his head!

To the editor:

On May 8, 1794, one of history’s great scientists, Antoine Lavoisier, was executed in that maelstrom of mayhem, the French Revolution, in which many of the participants were radicals seeking to refashion society. Should there be a lesson in that for us?

Permit three other questions.

During consideration of civil rights legislation, LBJ said that he would have the “N*****s voting Democrat for 200 years.” Should I attribute his outlook to all Democrats? (On the authenticity of this quote, see Jon Miltimore’s 2016 article on the website, Intellectual Takeout.)

In his recent column, “Where’s Black Lives Matter when you need them?”, Larry Elder, along with much other important information, quotes the statement of Heather MacDonald: “A police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.” Should we emulate this African American’s courage in resisting Groupthink?

Do we all know what happened to Tony Timpa and Duncan Lemp?
