Wrong quotable quote
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.
