There is a great deal of information in the public realm that indicates that Liberation Theology (including what came to be known as Black Liberation Theology) was a construct of minds within Soviet Russia.
(Catholic News Agency) The movement was born in the KGB, and it had a KGB-invented name: Liberation Theology. During those years, the KGB had a penchant for “liberation” movements. The National Liberation Army of Columbia (FARC), created by the KGB with help from Fidel Castro; the “National Liberation Army of Bolivia, created by the KGB with help from “Che” Guevara; and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), created by the KGB with help from Yasser Arafat are just a few additional “liberation” movements born at the Lubyanka — the headquarters of the KGB…The KGB began by building an intermediate international religious organization called the Christian Peace Conference (CPC), which was headquartered in Prague. Its main task was to bring the KGB-created Liberation Theology into the real world.
Why would Soviet Russia wish to introduce this philosophy onto the American stage?
(Acton Institute) Black Liberation Theology actually encourages a victim mentality among blacks. John McWhorters’ book Losing the Race, will be helpful here. Victimology, says McWhorter, is the adoption of victimhood as the core of one’s identity — for example, like one who suffers through living in “a country and who lived in a culture controlled by rich white people.” It is a subconscious, culturally inherited affirmation that life for blacks in America has been in the past and will be in the future a life of being victimized by the oppression of whites. In today’s terms, it is the conviction that, 40 years after the Civil Rights Act, conditions for blacks have not substantially changed.
(Uncle) Frank Marshall Davis, mentor to young Barack Obama, was openly a member of the Communist Party. So were Barack Obama’s parents and his maternal grandparents. Naturally, as communists they were also atheists. Barack found faith – a false premise based on a scheme devised by the KGB.
