Malcolm X on Liberals and Conservatives

21 August

Interviewed in the 1960s, civil rights campaigner Malcolm X drew an analogy between white liberals and conservatives. He likened the black population to a flock of lambs and described liberals as foxes, who beguile to gain the trust of the lambs. Conservatives, he called wolves, who are aggressive and open in their desire to eat the lambs. He said that friendly foxes and angry wolves all have the same goal and that is to have lamb chops to eat.
