Today is the day that John Brown was hanged for fighting against United $nakes imperialism and cracker Amerika. Below is a short statement on his fight against imperialism from our friends at Monkey Smashes Heaven.
He will Make the Gallows Glorious like the Cross

“I believe that to have interfered as I have done as I have always freely admitted I have done in behalf of His despised poor, was not wrong, but right. Now, if it is deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of justice, and mingle my blood further with the blood of my children and with the blood of millions in this slave country whose rights are disregarded by wicked, cruel, and unjust enactments, I submit; so let it be done!” — John Brown’s statement after he was convicted.
Today, Dec. 2 2008, is the 149th anniversary of Comrade John Brown’s lynching by the United $nakes.
In 1859 John Brown led a small handful of men to raid the armoury at Harper’s Ferry in Virginia. With the weapons they would take, they would launch a people’s war against the United $nakes and create a new Black state. They would retreat into the mountains, and with their breech loading Sharps rifles they would ride onto the nearby plantations, liberate the slaves, recruit those who could fight — picking up more and more in a snowball effect, and send the rest to freedom on the underground railroad. With this they would destroy the United $nakes slaveocracy, and deal a serious blow to the U$ empire.
Sadly, Comrade Brown failed. He was surrounded in the armoury by local white oppressors. And when he tried to surrender, the crackers shot and killed those waving the white flag, one of whom was Brown’s son.
After his capture, Comrade Brown was put on trial for murder, conspiring with slaves to rebel, and treason against the state of Virginia. John Brown was found guilty on all three counts and was hanged on this day in 1859.
Today, John Brown is a hero to all Maoist-Third Worldists and all those fighting U$ imperialism. John Brown is a hero not just because he led a revolution against white amerika, he is a hero because he was of white amerika. Comrade Brown had no material interest in seeing slavery end or not. He just knew it was wrong. He knew “good-willed” white amerikans were never going to sacrifice what was necessary to end national oppression. He knew that only a handful of nation-traitors would join the cause, and the rest was up to the Black Nation itself.
Today on the day of his death, we should celebrate his life and his just cause. Of “Old Brown,” the poet William Dead Howells wrote:
Death kills not. In a later time,
(O, slow but all-accomplishing!)
Thy shouted name abroad shall ring,
Wherever right makes war sublime (1)
