The former Carnegie Public Library has been converted into a privately operated East Side “Freedom” Library run by a Marxist named Peter Rachleff, a labor historian.  Retired Macalester Professor Rachleff and his wife opened the “Freedom Library” and they love to talk about their admiration of Vladimir Lenin & Karl Marx.  Here’s an excerpt from “Q & A Peter Rachleff,” posted on November 28, 2016 on

“We have three sets of Lenin’s collected works. Marx’s collected works.

Qn: What are you incubating?

I mean, at the most academic-sounding level, Marx’s idea of class consciousness.The east side is a working-class area. How do we get people to see themselves as Hmong and working class, Karen and working class, Somali and working class? They don’t have to stop being Hmong, Karen and Somali. I can be Hmong and recognize myself as part of the working class, and be embraced by others, and then hopefully develop political strategies to organize unions, run candidates for city council. There are many directions the activism could go.” —

Lenin, Stalin, and Marx did not advocate for Freedom but instead to oppress their people and terrorize the world with their socialist communist beliefs.  From now on we will refer to this library as the Marxist Library.

This is fitting that Representative Betty McCollum, a Socialist Democrat will be the honored speaker at the Marxist Library.  She will be welcomed by her fellow Comrades.
