Wrong quotable quote

Santa Fe New Mexican - - OPINIONS -

ex­hibits a sad ig­no­rance of his­tory and dis­re­spect to work­ing people in the United States when it quotes the rob­ber baron John D. Rock­e­feller (“Mon­day, Sept. 4, 2017, La­bor Day,” ad­ver­tise­ment, Aug. 29, Page A-3) as a sup­posed trib­ute to hon­est la­bor. Rock­e­feller was the ar­chi­tect of the 1914 Lud­low Mas­sacre where Rock­e­feller thugs at­tacked a tent city of strik­ing min­ers, re­sult­ing in the death of at least 66 men, women and chil­dren. The facts of the mas­sacre were de­tailed in an April 18, 2014, New Yorker ar­ti­cle. There is a memorial to the mas­sacre just off In­ter­state 25 in Colorado north of Ra­ton. To quote Rock­e­feller in sup­port of work­ing people is like quot­ing Joseph Stalin in sup­port of hu­man rights. Neal De­vitt, M.D.
