IT’S A BATTLE BETWEEN A MARXIST CITY GOVERNMENT OR A DEMOCRATIC FLORENCE CITY GOVERNMENT


One of the most heated races on October 6th is for the office of Florence, Alabama, mayor. The Florence mayoral race has become something I really do not think anyone has seen in years or ever expected to happen here.

It appears to have morphed into not only a race between the Democrat and Republican party candidates but into candidates where one, Andy Betterton, seems to have sold his soul for endorsement by a group that has Marxist, Socialist flavoring called “Project Say Something.” 

Inside sources of this group have told us some members are attempting to encourage Black Lives Matter groups in major Alabama cities to join them in their effort to take over the city reins.

This writer had a conversation with one of their members who stated the Florence Confederate monument is just a start. After they achieve the removal, they are going to attempt to dismantle Florence’s present governmental system which they perceive as being unfair and replace it with a new model.

In other words, their goal is to turn Florence into what will probably have a Democrat, Marxist style leaning government. If you do not know what that means, then pay attention to what the city councils and mayors did in those style governments, such as Seattle, Detroit, Portland, and others.

Examples are defunding the police, pulling the teeth of the police where they have no effective way of fighting the rioters and looters who want to burn and destroy the very businesses your grandparents, parents and now you have worked so hard to make a success. Refusing to enforce some city laws, and only enforcing some that supports their agenda.

Allow me to stop here and give you the definition of Marxist and Socialist.

Marxist - derives from someone who is a supporter of the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels or Communism. Simply put they believe the system we live under today, is unequal and undemocratic. This is because capitalism is a class society, based on the exploitation of the working-class (most of the population).

Socialist - a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community. It is a belief in redistribution of wealth, or some refer to as leftism or progressivism. You have heard these claims from the Democrats believing in this style of government.  

How do they redistribute wealth? They simply raise business and personal taxes in the city. Example: City of Birmingham now charges a tax on everyone for the right to be able to work within the city. Do you want that here?

It is imperative that you get out and vote on election day, October 6th. This time your vote is not just a simple vote for mayor, but for what style of city council you want for the next four years. If you believe that your city should definitely not have a mayor who is tied to what I refer to as a Marxist leaning group, then you need to put Mayor Steve Holt at the city's helm for the next four years.

I ask that you think about what I just told you before you mark that ballot.

No to Marxism!

Well said and informed. Project Say Something is for BLM and BLM is a Marxists. Anyone with Google can look that up and see for themselves. So wouldn't that makes PSS a Marxists, too? By association. Majority of this country doesn't want to be ran that way. Let your voice be heard on election day.

Full of grammatical errors, no evidence, and sensationalist

Firstly, this article is riddled with elementary grammar mistakes. I wrote better than this in middle school. And this is your job? You can’t be serious. Next, you’ve made some wild claims and have provided literally zero evidence. Are you reporting news or are you inciting fear in the community? You should be ashamed of this. It can’t even be called journalism. Pen-N-Sword has really gone downhill.
