‘Social justice’ is just code

The Spokesman-Review

Monday’s front page gave us a glowing report on the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane and the many antigovernment and anticapitalism demonstrations they hold. PJALS demands “social justice,” which are code words for anti-Americanism. Those who use the term make it clear that it means the USA is an unjust and oppressive society, and they wish to overturn all those who have economic and political power.

PJALS issues and those of Rusty and Nancy Nelson are all outlined in the platform of the Socialist Party USA for anyone to read at

Rather than riots and bombs, these social justice activists prefer to hold demonstrations to indoctrinate the uninformed with their radical, left-wing ideas, because many citizens have been “educated” in our public schools and have no background information to help them evaluate bias and errors.

What a contrast there is between your warm and fuzzy report on the Nelsons, who partake of our freedoms in America while advocating our destruction, and the coverage of the “tea parties” recently that were attended by overtaxed Americans protesting our government’s expansion and leftward march toward socialism.
