Unwitting Embrace of Leftist Utopianism due to Jew-Hatred


John R. Houk

© April 23, 2019

I find it quite disturbing and extremely sad that there exists people in America who claim patriotism yet express racist statements indicating Jew-Hatred and Anti-Israel sentiments.

 

These so-called Patriots will lump all Jews monolithically as something repugnant because people of Jewish heritage have been or (startlingly) currently are supportive of Left-Wing ideology too often to the point of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communism.

 

In case you didn’t realize it, lumping Communist-oriented Jews are representative of all Judaism is like lumping all Americans with Communism because many people of a Western Civilization heritage (yet non-Jewish) embraced atheistic Communism. Western Christians such as Friedrich Engels and Vladimir Lenin (born as Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov) abandoned their faith and heritage to embrace a violent-revolution concept like Communism.

 

Sure, people of a Jewish heritage devoted themselves to Communism, for the most part these Communist devotees abandoned their faith and heritage in the same fashion as the Communists who abandoned their Christian heritage. The attributed inventor of modern Communism in Karl Marx is an example. Another example of abandoning his heritage to embrace Communism is Mao Zedong (aka Mao Tse-tung).

 

For people looking for a form of Leftist Utopianism, Communism is the antidote regardless of heritage and religion. Ultimately the Communist antidote seeks to transform society enforced by a government even if it means massive murders for society to forget their past heritage.

 

Those Americans calling themselves Patriots yet hate Jews are unwittingly aligning themselves with Leftist Utopianism which would lead to Communism. To be clear, Communism eradicates Liberty and Freedom as the Leftist ideology seeks to make people the Natural Rights endowed by Nature’s God.

 

This brings me to the Pro-Israel organization that non-Jewish Leftists; self-loathing Leftist Jews and Muslim Apologists love to hate – the Canary Mission. I have posted twice on the Canary Mission HERE and HERE. If you are a Jew-Hater that erroneously describes oneself as a Patriot, I pray the Canary Mission exposes your racism.

The courageous group exposing the campus Israel/Jew-hating industry becomes a target.

 

Canary Mission screen capture

Jews have had a long history of engaging in wars with enemies who fight by rules that Jews find abhorrent. Rather than fight by those rules, Jews have held themselves to more humane standards. While this is morally admirable, it’s not always martially effective.

 

On his way to establishing control over the Arabian Peninsula, Mohammed’s armies fought and conquered the Jewish tribes that had lived there for centuries. Jews of the Nadir tribe, living around Medina, wouldn’t fight on the Sabbath. Even during wartime, due to a biblical injunction, they refused to cut down their enemy’s fruit trees. Mohammed had no such qualms. He had his soldiers cut down the Nadir’s date palms on which they depended for food and for trade. And he did it on the Sabbath. The Nadir surrendered and were exiled.

 

Israel has been battling the terrorists of Hamas ever since abandoning Gaza in a futile attempt at peaceful coexistence. The IDF is the most moral army in the world and fights as hard at avoiding civilian casualties as they do at fighting against Hamas. Hamas works hard at creating civilian casualties, its favorites being Gazan children that their media allies can blame Israel for. And so this war drags on.

 

On university campuses throughout North America, Israel and Jewish students are vilified and harassed by BDS supporters including Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and their allies. Campus Jews think this is an ideological disagreement. Jewish students don’t understand that BDS and SJP are fighting a war, and so they continue the custom of fighting by different rules. Jewish students see BDS and SJP as organizations that they can debate in order to sway the larger student population.

 

Meanwhile, BDS proponents, in this endless war against the Jews, use every anti-Semitic/anti-Israel lie they can muster. They use theater, public demonstrations, and displays designed to demonize Israel. They crush dissent by protesting and shouting down pro-Israel speakers. They demand free speech rights, but deny them to campus Israel supporters. They feel emboldened enough to tweet messages like, “Hitler should have killed the Jews when he had the chance that dog” and “What do you call a flyin Jew?….. Smoke.”

 

Jewish students, who because they are at college to get an education, are at a terrible disadvantage facing paid BDS activists, who are on campus to demonize Israel as part of a long-term strategy to bring down the Jewish state and return Jews to their Sharia approved roles as “dhimmis.” While Jewish students have formed grass-root organizations to fight BDS, BDS groups, including SJP, are the American arms of Hamas and are well trained and well funded by Hamas.

 

The main Hamas to SJP conduit has been American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), a group founded by U of C Berkeley professor, Hatem Bazian. AMP’s board membership includes various anti-Israel activists, terror supporters, and former members of the Holy Land Foundation, an organization that was shut down in 2009 after a lengthy FBI terrorism investigation and federal trial.

 

In addition, Omar Barghouti, founder of the BDS movement, who was denied entry into the U.S. in April 2019, has extensive terrorist connections. A group he co-founded, the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions National Committee (BNC) receives support from a who’s who of terrorist organizations that not only includes Hamas, but also: Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Palestine Liberation, Front, Palestinians Islamic Jihad, and many others.

 

Barghouti’s father, Marwan Barghouti, along with Yassir Arafat, was a founder of the PLO, which Omar Barghouti states, “was very much a part of our family . . .” The elder Barghouti also ran the terrorist Tanzim force and founded the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. One does not engage in reasoned debate with these people.

 

Recently, groups like Zionist Organization of America, StandWithUs, and the Lawfare Project, have begun steering more resources into training and supporting beleaguered Israel advocates. These adult organizations have gained experience over the years of struggle and have begun fighting back more aggressively, going so far as bringing lawsuits against some of the most unfriendly-to-Jews universities.

 

Even with this outside help, Jewish students still refuse to go all out. They still insist on holding back even as they themselves on some campuses are wary of looking too Jewish by wearing a kippah or other noticeably Jewish outerwear, lest they be harassed. Like the IDF, they insist on fighting with one (or more) hand(s) behind their backs.

 

Three years ago, a new anti-BDS group, calling themselves “Canary Mission,” entered the fray. They take their name from the recognition that Jews are the “canary in the coal mine,” the first to face irrational discrimination when societies enter into periods of increased bigotry and self-destruction. Their motto is, “If you’re racist, the world should know it.” Their members remain anonymous. They work at exposing campus anti-Semites, including students and professors, on the Left and on the Right. And they use the anti-Semites’ own words from their own social media posts to do it. They’ve created an online database full of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel tweets and Facebook rants, and dedicated pages listing personal and organizational ties to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist groups.

 

The Middle East Studies Association, an organization that backed a University of Michigan professor in his refusal to write a recommendation for a Jewish student to study in Israel, has a page on its website dedicated to “exposing” Canary Mission. They claim that Canary Mission’s “profiles are filled with falsehoods, misrepresentations and errors,” but provide no examples. They misrepresent Canary Mission’s “political agenda” and denounce its members as being “extremists.” Without a trace of irony, they accuse Canary Mission of seeking to “silence free and open campus discussion of, and teaching about, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” Canary Mission is lumped with organizations like CAMERA, Honest Reporting, StandWithUs, and other pro-Israel and media watchdog organizations that MESA falsely associates with a “rise of Islamophobia.”

 

The Electronic Intifada has posted Steven Salaita’s diatribe, “A guide to surviving Canary Mission,” from which we learn about “Zionist thuggery,” “messianic compulsions of settler-colonization,” and facilitation of “sexist, racist and homophobic abuse.” His advice is, don’t talk to Zionists. Recall that Salaita had a University of Illinois job offer rescinded after some of his vicious anti-Israel tweets came to light.

 

Mondoweiss calls Canary Mission “a settler-colonial scam, an ethnonationalist slur, and a malicious, well-funded, underground machine set to destroy the lives and careers of real people.” People exposed by Canary Mission are referred to as “Palestinian human rights advocates” who are smeared by Canary Mission, but again, no “real people” examples are offered.

 

In addition to these long-standing Israel-hating sites, there is now, “Against Canary Mission.” In addition to slamming Canary Mission, this site also houses rehabilitative counter-profiles on people previously profiled by Canary Mission. These profiles are much shorter and contain much less detail. They are much friendlier. There is also an option for “activists” to write their own profile. To be fair, I could not find that option on the Canary Mission website.

 

The legal director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee has accused Canary Mission of using “dirty tactics.”

 

Blowback from groups like the Middle East Studies Association and these other Israel hating websites are predictable. The fact that these sites are so offended by Canary Mission and so eager to slander and discredit it, tells us that Canary Mission is effective and that the campus Israel/Jew haters and terror supporters are afraid of being revealed as the hateful bigots they are.

 

Unfortunately, Canary Mission is so effective that it is also scaring the Jewish students who have been subjected to the bullying tactics of the people Canary Mission has profiled. And the Jewish students, in their panic at possibly being labeled as “racist” or “Islamophobic,” are siding with their enemies against Canary Mission.

 

In April and again in October 2016, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, using information provided by Canary Mission, put posters up on the U of C Berkeley campus, showing Students for Justice in Palestine’s links to Hamas. In addition, names were named. The posters were denounced by campus SJP members as “hate speech.” An attorney with Palestine Legal criticized the university “for allegedly creating a hateful environment for SJP.” This is the same campus that employs Professor Hatem Bazian, who has a deservedly long Canary Mission page documenting his founding of AMP and co-creating SJP. This is in addition to Bazian’s fund raising activities for a Hamas-linked charity and his unabashed promotion of anti-Semitism.

 

Besides being Hatem Bazian’s home campus, U of C Berkeley is also infamous for hosting a course calling for the destruction of Israel. It’s the university where Rachel Beyda was almost denied a student government leadership position because she is Jewish. Even so, the president of the Jewish Student Union condemned the posters, stating, “. . . This does not allow us to have any room for conversation from the pro-Israel or pro-Palestinian side.”

 

When the posters also appeared at San Francisco State University, which is currently being sued for discriminating against Jewish students, an advisor to the General Union of Palestine Students stated, “This is very racist, it is Islamophobic.” San Francisco’s Hillel executive director condemned the “offensive messages.”

 

At UC Davis, Aggies for Israel allied themselves with student groups including the Muslim Student Association (another Muslim Brotherhood front group, many of whose leaders graduated to terrorism), to pass a resolution, part of which accuses Canary Mission, again without irony, of creating “a toxic atmosphere of fear and paranoia among fellow students, thus infringing upon students’ ability to freely express their opinions.”

 

At the University of Michigan, a pro-BDS resolution was recently passed on its eleventh try. Part of the blame was laid at the feet of Canary Mission. BDS proponents, who were savvy enough to play on Jewish students’ insistence on fair play, pulled out their victim card, expressing worry about future repercussions due to Canary Mission’s “blacklist” and “McCarthyite tactics.” In return Jewish student organizations rolled over, submitting to a secret ballot, thereby allowing anti-Israel/anti-Semitic student government officials to escape responsibility for their anti-Israel vote. The Jewish students lost because they allowed BDS to set the rules and control the battle.

 

Following the vote, two students wrote a letter, which was signed by several universities’ Hillel Governing/Executive Boards and pro-Israel organizations, rejecting Canary Mission. “We view much of the rhetoric employed to villainize these individuals as hateful and, in some case, Islamophobic and racist. In addition, Canary Mission’s wide scope wrongfully equates supporting a BDS resolution with some of the most virulent expressions of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel rhetoric and activity. . . we expect credible Jewish and pro-Israel communal organizations to help us combat anti-Semitism . . . in a diplomatic manner that seeks to protect our community rather than shaming the other side anonymously.”

 

One would expect SJP members to condemn the coverage of their terrorist ties. When Jewish students and Jewish organizations side with SJP because they want to combat anti-Semitism in a diplomatic manner and not shame the other side’s vile ethnic hatred, it’s clear that the Jewish students do not understand the nature of the enemy or the enormity of this fight.

 

Sun Tzu said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

 

BDS proponents know their enemy, and they know how easy it is to control Jewish students who are truly interested in fairness and decency, with cries of “racism” and “Islamophobia.” Jewish students, who have grown up in bubbles of comfort, don’t even know that they have an enemy.  The lesson from our Passover Haggadah that: “in each and every generation, they rise up against us to destroy us” hasn’t been taken seriously. Students don’t know enough Jewish history to understand that this is just the latest manifestation of an ancient war against the Jews that began in Europe with the rise of Christianity and in the Middle East with the rise of Islam. They really believe it’s all about Israel, when Israel is just the latest excuse. They don’t understand that they are pulling the wool over their own eyes and doing some of SJP’s (and Hamas’) work for them.

 

Mohammed said, “War is deceit.” Deceit, implicit in campus “apartheid walls,” die-ins, and mock checkpoints, is the strongest weapon in the Israel-haters arsenal. Their second greatest weapon is Jewish students’ naiveté.

 

We know there is a double standard when it comes to Jews and Israel. University officials are willing to overlook campus anti-Semitism if it is masked as anti-Zionism. The anti-Semites have worked hard to create a false separation between Judaism and Zionism in order to justify and promote their hatred.

 

When a group of Wisconsin high school students stupidly posed for a school photo giving a “seig heil” salute, there were calls for their suspension. And, we were told, “. . . the image could have far-reaching consequences for the young men pictured there . . .” Meanwhile, Canary Mission has screenshots of SJP members tweeting things like: “The world would be soooo much better without jews man”, and “Lol let’s stuff some Jews in the oven.”  Shouldn’t these publicly posted sentiments have far-reaching consequences? Not according to Jewish students. But just like Israel’s fight with Hamas, the misguided insistence on fair play insures that this fight will continue long after the current crop of students has graduated. And as long as these students support Israel, they will always be denigrated. They will always be insulted as bigots by real bigots.

 

Using Canary Mission’s information, Jewish university students can take the offensive in order to hamper BDS efforts. If the BDS movement were a white supremacist or neo-Nazi group, there would be no reservations about using Canary Mission to expose them. This is a double standard Jewish students are imposing on themselves.

 

It’s not McCarthyite or bigoted if they’re telling the truth. Canary Mission recently posted a video in which SJP members disrupt a UCLA Students Supporting Israel event and threaten the speakers. SJP denied having anything to do with the disruption. But thanks to advances in digital technology, the SJP bullies are highlighted in the video along with screenshots of some of their troubling tweets. McCarthyism? No. This is revealing the truth and exposing SJP as not only bullies, but also as liars. This is fighting back. [Blog Editor’s bold text] It is aggressively taking the fight to the bigots on the public relations field where Jews and Israel have been taking a beating due to their insistence on either engaging in free and fair debate or not fighting back at all. Unlike the campus Israel haters who depend on deception, it is the Jewish pro-Israel students who have the truth on their side.

 

We know that a juicy, outrageous lie that gets one’s blood boiling is easier to accept than a boring truth, especially if that lie is about Jews or Israel. Exposing the bigoted hatred of the SJP liars and their admiration for Hitler and Nazis, who, they mourn, should have finished the job, would do a lot more for the campus pro-Israel cause than reasoned debate. In that debate, lies carry the same weight as truth to students who don’t know enough about Israel or its history to tell the difference. Anyone though, even a brainwashed university student, can identify as anti-Semitic, a tweet that says, “@BarackObama shut up about gay marriage and go kill all the Jews.” Display enough of these detestable social media posts and expose enough links to terrorism, and the true intentions of the posters would be undeniable, even as they whine about being victims.

 

That would be a strong first step toward defeating and shutting down the campus Israel/Jew-hating industry.

The David Horowitz Freedom Center combats the efforts of the radical left and its Islamist allies to destroy American values and disarm this country as it attempts to defend itself in a time of terror.  The leftist offensive is most obvious on our nation’s campuses, where the Freedom Center protects students from indoctrination and intimidation and works to give conservative students a place in the marketplace of ideas from which they are otherwise excluded.  Combining forceful analysis and bold activism, the Freedom Center provides strong insight into today’s most pressing issue on its family of websites and in the activist campaigns it wages on campus, in the news media, and in national politics throughout the year.

 

David Horowitz began the Center for the Study of Popular Culture in 1988 to establish a conservative presence in Hollywood and show how popular culture had become a political battleground. Over the next 18 years, CSPC attracted 50,000 contributing supporters and established programs such as The Wednesday Morning Club, the Individual Rights Foundation, and Students for Academic Freedom.

 

FrontPage Magazine, the Center’s online journal of news and political commentary has 1.5 million visitors and over 870,000 unique visitors a month (65 million hits) and is linked to over 2000 other websites.  The magazine’s coverage of and commentary about events has been greatly augmented over the last two years by the presence of four  Shillman Fellows in Journalism underwritten by board member Dr. Robert Shillman.

The Final Journey  

The Abyss of Civil War

 

By Justin O. Smith

America will be unable to continue for much longer through the “give and take” of Congressional politics, when one views the reality of the Democratic Party as thinly veiled Communists of today, who simply take and never give in any so-called “compromise”. Look at the violence that followed President Trump’s election and the tacit support given violent Antifa rioters and Black Lives Matter, and look at the election of Democrat Rashid Tlaib to Michigan’s 13th Congressional District this month, whereupon she wildly waved the Palestinian flag — the flag of Hamas and Muslim terrorists; and one will understand that the far and wide disparity between the ideology of the Democrats and the Republicans will only lead to greater civil strife, setting the stage for a civil war that may not come real soon but soon enough. One cannot reach across the political divide or build bridges with those who will use those bridges to destroy one’s homes.

 

It is astounding to find factions in our exceptional country, who support the Swamp and its expansion, that have united against President Trump and any move towards our Founding Principles [Blog Editor: Expanded views of Founding Principles – HERE & HERE]  and real conservative values, that promote great prosperity and individual liberty.  These are the crazies of the Left and their Democrat Party useful idiots, Marxists, liberals, elderly hippies, welfare moochers, rabid feminists, LGBTQ bathroom “rights” advocates and rainbow dancing socialists, Black Lives Matter racists, cowardly Antifa thugs, and the Millennial pansy generation who subvert the U.S. Constitution for their taxpayer subsidized paychecks.

 

In March of this year, State Department official Keith Mines suggested [Blog Editor: See Also HERE] he believed the odds of a second American Civil War starting within the next ten to fifteen years are about sixty percent. During an interview with ‘Foreign Policy’ magazine, Mines lamented: “It is like 1859, everyone is mad about something and everyone has a gun.”

 

America is not the same country it was, when I was a boy, several decades ago. She has changed drastically, and not for the better, and Democrats and Republicans are irretrievably divided, as they stare across a wide ideological chasm at each other.

 

On October 9th, 2018, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared that Democrats “cannot be civil” as long as Republicans hold the White House and Congress, adding: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about”.

 

Hell has frozen over. I agree with Hillary. However, I’d ask her, just exactly what is it that she and her fellow “Progressive” Democratic Commie Rats care about? It can’t be America or Her Founding Principles, as we see them cry “racism” whenever they cannot win an ideological debate. They always divert the discussion to race, gender or sexual preference and the “right” of women to abort their unborn children, so much so that their corruption of the FBI and the Department of Justice is never properly addressed and corrected — neither are Hillary’s numerous criminal acts against America.

 

Today, Americans hear young socialists and communists within our nation talking about “fundamentally transforming” America, which simply means creating a new authoritarian socialist state for America and destroying the Constitution and the Republic “by any means necessary”, including violence.  We saw the Hillsborough, North Carolina GOP headquarters firebombed last month, Some, such as the  Antifa professor from Diablo Valley College who clubbed several pro-Trump people at a rally last year, have very nearly killed people they thought were conservatives or Trump supporters. Antifa attacked my good friend Haley Adams and her family at both the June Prayer Rally and the July Freedom Rally she helped organize this year in Portland, Oregon, sending her elderly father to the hospital after one attack; and all simply due to the fact that she was waving an American flag.

 

Americans have witnessed Leftists, communists and anarchists attack good and decent Americans all across the nation, as they burn the American flag as they did in 2016 in Pittsburgh. From El Cajon, California to Connecticut to Tennessee, Americans have been attacked repeatedly, since 2015, simply for being a Trump supporter or for honoring the American Flag. Despicably, even the elderly are assaulted, as evidenced by the attack on a seventy-one year old female staffer for California GOP Representative Dana Rohrabacher last year. And it is well documented that Black Lives Matter and Antifa have shot at and shot and killed or wounded several people, over the last few years.

 

The Left and the Democratic Party has now cast aside its once veiled-veneer of civility and all remaining pretense. It still pursues its suicidal sovereignty killing mission through neo-Orwellian Agenda 21 regulations, gun confiscation, government-mandated politically correct orthodoxies and the suppression of Free Speech and dissent — especially in regard to any criticism of Islam — more fiercely than even the mainstream media currently demonstrates.

 

Sadly, there is not much that unites us today.

 

The Communists of America, the Democratic Progressives, call decent Americans, who support and defend the Constitution, “deplorables, racist, homophobic, Islamophobic and every other vile name under the sun.” And most often, we are referred to as fascists and Nazis. These are the anti-Christians and anti-Americans — the secular humanists intent on purging Christianity from our society — bent on the destruction of the Republic. Their vulgar outbreaks of violence are a growing movement intent on bringing down America.

 

How can anyone find any “compromise” with this sort of EVIL and this agenda, and why would anyone want to do so?

 

On June 26th of this year, Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) warned America is headed toward another civil war, as he declared: “America is heading in the direction of another Harpers Ferry. After that comes Ft. Sumter.”

 

My people, who love America and understand Her Founding Principles and Her Exceptionalism, want America to return to ‘E Pluribus Unum’ and a national community grounded in the desire for individual freedom, but it is far too obvious today that this will not happen without a struggle. Our enemies hate our God-given inalienable rights to speak freely, to worship freely and to keep and bear arms, and they will hate and attack us even more once they ever regain power. Understand this and be ready to defend your life and liberty by exercising your right to do so.

 

Any decent American cannot abide by the totalitarian ideology the Democratic Party would foist upon them, if the Democrats were given the chance, and should this nation and the patriots of Our Republic find themselves forced to take up arms to hold their rights and preserve Liberty, one need look no farther than the illiberal Democratic Party and its fascist ranks. History will record  they pushed America into the abyss of civil war and brought down a darkness on our society through their ideology and their death wish, blurring the shape of beauty and normalcy, the definition of virtue, the edges of truth.

 

The battle for the heart and soul of America will continue for some time. These events, this juncture in history at this hour, represent the most sickening things I have witnessed in my many years on this earth. The war is ahead of us, and the ending will be much like that of the final fall of Rome.

 

Be blessed my friends, for we are on the final journey.

A Challenge to Point out Communism in Dem Party Platform PT 2


John R. Houk

© October 27, 2018

Part ONE can be read HERE.

 

As a recap for the purpose of this post:

 

I recently received criticism on a MeWe group for sharing a Justin Smith post entitled “Liberty First and Foremost”. The beginning of Justin’s essay said this:

 

The Democratic Party has grown to be the enemy within our country, and the communist Democrats working in federal positions are the same as foreign agents infiltrated into federal agencies, seeking to do whatever is needed to end this republic.

 

Chris Worth at this MeWe group said something to the effect he read equating the Dems to a “Communist” and decided the post was worthless and hence encouraged readers there was no need to read further.

 

And now to continue to show that the Dems have an affinity for Communism from their 2016 Party Platform.

 

Resuming with the summary of the Party Platform:

 

LGBT Issues

 

Supports comprehensive federal nondiscrimination protections “for all LGBT Americans, to guarantee equal rights in areas such as housing, employment, public accommodations, credit, jury service, education, and federal funding.”

 

Opposes all state efforts to “discriminate against LGBT individuals, including legislation that restricts the right to access public spaces.”

 

Supports combatting [sic] LGBT youth homelessness and improving school climates.

 

Supports ensuring support LGBT elders have access to necessary health care, and “protect LGBT people from violence—including ending the crisis of violence against transgender Americans.”

 

Supports promotion of “LGBT human rights” around the world and ensuing “America’s foreign policy is inclusive of LGBT people.

 

As a Christian Conservative that supports Biblical Morality Dems and all people of the Left vilify me as –gasp– a homophobe. The Dem support for the normalization of all things homosexual (Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender and now days the adding of Queer) is a Marxist elite design to displace the Christian Values that have been the backbone of American culture for two centuries. ONLY in the mid-1900s with the infection of Leftist thinking in the media, entertainment, academia and the Courts has the homosexual lifestyle been normalized via the power of propaganda waged in those venues.

 

Today it is even difficult to use general terms on Internet search engines to locate data on how Americans rejected homosexuality as normal because the search engines are dominated by Left-think. In Part One I lost patience looking for the data on American attitudes about the LGBTQ lifestyle and ended up using homosexual activist thinking making it sound as if the homosexual-by-choice (I don’t buy into the Gay gene concept) people are struggling victims. To that end here the title I found and used in Part One when the Dems suggestively place LGBTQ discrimination under the section “Discrimination and Racial Issues”: Being Gay Used to Be Illegal. And here is a quote from that post about society’s concurrence with Biblical Morality by illegalizing the homosexual lifestyle:

 

“Being gay” (same-sex activity and partnership) used to be illegal in the U.S. and the U.K., and being gay is still illegal in many parts of the world. The details are complex.

 

Prior to 20th-century reforms, punishment for homosexuality in places like the United States and the Britain included incarceration, fines, castration, and even death. Even after aspects of same-sex relationships were decriminalized, discrimination and prejudice on behalf of the state continued in many respects. [1][2][3]

 

LGBT rights throughout world history is a complex subject. Some cultures had progressive stances on LGBT issues long before Britain and the US, yet other cultures still consider “being gay” a crime punishable by death and imprisonment today. Even today, state-sponsored LGBT discrimination still exists in the West. For instance, same sex marriage only recently became legal in the U.S. and still illegal in Northern Ireland. [4] (Being Gay Used to Be Illegal; Researched by Thomas DeMichele; FactMyth.com; Published – 3/22/16. Last Updated – 8/27/16)

 

You can tell the Leftist slant by the above website when the Christian attitude toward the LGBTQ lifestyle is described as “discrimination” or “still illegal” rather than shunned due moral agreement with the Creator of all that exists:

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [a]comprehend it. ( John 1: 1-5 NKJV)

 

1 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [a]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [b]manifest [c]in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and [d]Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [a]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [b]men, leaving the natural use of the [c]woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Romans 1: 18-21, 24-27 NKJV)

 

In Communism religion challenges the authority of the State and must be suppressed by any means necessary. As such here is an illuminating quote about the reason Communism disdains religion:

 

A communist government has to have the people looking at them as a god or as diety. After all, a communist government basically decides what people do in terms of career, in terms of where they live, what choices they have for food, clothing, medical care and how much money they “live on.” Allowing the people to have a “god” places the government at number two in terms of authority and prominence in a citizen’s life and might lead to a rebelion [sic].

 

Karl Marx, the father of communism, said, “Communism begins from the outset with atheism.” (He said this in  Introduction to A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right).

 

Vladimir Lenin similarly wrote: “A Marxist must be a materialist, i. e., an enemy of religion, but a dialectical materialist, i. e., one who treats the struggle against religion not in an abstract way, not on the basis of remote, purely theoretical, never varying preaching, but in a concrete way, on the basis of the class struggle which is going on in practice and is educating the masses more and better than anything else could”(He said this in his book,  Private Property and Communism). (Communism Persecutes Religion; NoCommunism.com)

 

Dem support for an LGBTQ agenda smacks entirely of Communist remolding of cultural thinking.

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

National Service

 

Support strengthening AmeriCorps with the “goal that every American who wants to participate in full-time national service will have the opportunity to do so.”

 

AmeriCorps according to its website:

 

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs, made up of three primary programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.

 

AmeriCorps is a good idea. You can hearken back to President Kennedy’s words:

 

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

Service for Country is difficult to criticize. However, a CBS report (of all places) shows the current scope of AmeriCorps has problems:

 

WASHINGTON — A CBS News Radio investigation of years of complaints about AmeriCorps programs has found multiple allegations of sexual harassment, abusive behavior and mismanagement since 2013. The allegations are detailed in complaints to the agency’s Inspector General, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

 

AmeriCorps, a network of national service programs, is the largest issuer of grants for service and volunteering.

 

It is overseen by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), which was established as a federal agency in 1993 – and has been dogged for years by claims that it is poorly managed.

 

Conservative critics say AmeriCorps is a waste of money and promotes liberal causes. The Government Accountability Office found last year that CNCS has fallen short in monitoring whether the organizations it grants money to meet federal standards and requirements. (AmeriCorps programs accused of sexual misconduct and breakdowns in oversight; By STEVE DORSEY; CBS News; 10/22/18 8:15 AM – Updated 10/22/18 7:15 PM EDT)

 

In essence the AmeriCorps problem is Big Government, mismanagement and propagating Left-Wing causes in its current state. Here’s a Michelle Malkin criticism from 2011:

 

… With bipartisan support, the program has morphed into an all-purpose progressive slush fund. Instead of reining in the national-service boondoggle, Washington has turned taxpayer-subsidized helping hands into a legion of Nanny State handout helpers. Goodbye, AmeriCorps. Hello, FoodStampCorps.

 

#ad#Yes, across the Internet, the feds are recruiting AmeriCorps VISTA (“Volunteers in Service to America”) workers to apply for jobs as publicists for the welfare state. Their mission: to sign up as many people to federal food-stamp rolls as possible. Because, you know, the record-breaking 12 million that have been added since Obama took office is apparently not good enough. (America the Dependent; By MICHELLE MALKIN; National Review; 4/15/11 4:00 AM)

 

Can you say, “Teaching government dependence”?

 

The Libertarian-oriented Hoover Institute observed in 1996, three years after AmeriCorps’ creation:

 

… Clinton has used the rhetoric of citizenship to justify his efforts to expand the welfare state. He has contradicted his emphasis on personal responsibility by working to preserve bureaucratic federal control of social programs. The revival of citizenship requires a transfer of power from government to families, voluntary associations, and communities. The president has instead sought to reinvigorate civic life by trying to relegitimize government.

 

 

AmeriCorps reveals the administration’s fundamental misreading of the components of healthy citizenship. The program provides government subsidies for voluntary activity at the federal, state, and local levels. By so doing, it conflates volunteering — which nearly 90 million Americans regularly do — with a federal-government jobs program run by a centralized bureaucracy. It is, in essence, a Great Society-style program trying to pass as a plan to reinvigorate citizenship and heal communities. But its very premise — using federal resources to promote voluntarism — contradicts the principle of self-government that lies at the heart of citizenship. AmeriCorps blurs the line between the problems and needs best addressed by individuals, voluntary association and localities and those best addressed by the federal government. Instead, it seems to suggest that social problems are the responsibility of the central government, and the federal bureaucracy must direct and improve local solutions. (Clinton’s AmeriCorps Values; By John Walters; January/February Policy ReviewHoover Institute; 3/1/1996)

 

Government dependence is one of the ways a Communist government manages the thoughts and actions of its citizens.

 

Read this article on Marxist/Leninist agenda to control citizens and look for similarities to the stealth actions of the Democratic Party. Here is a bit of an intro:

 

As the Bolshevik party took control of Russia after the October Revolution in 1917, they initiated large scale reforms in numerous sectors of society, while ultimately instituting changes in the political, economic, and cultural realms; that would all work together to clearly define their newly founded United Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) for the next seventy years. These reforms were predominantly focused on the wide-spread cultivation and propagation of Marxist/Leninist ideology throughout every portion of the USSR’s social spectrum. One of the most important initiatives taken was the promulgation of a new philosophical idealism that strove to mold the masses, specifically the proletariat working class, to form a “New Man.” Though this philosophical concept, coupled with the aims and ideology of the Soviet regime, has been historically designated as “The New Soviet Man,” the two terms are referred to synonymously in this historical investigation. The New Soviet Man was a medium through which the new party leaders attempted to extirpate old societal norms, which were lingering from the former regime, and replace them with a holistically Communistic society ruled by a national consensus and devoid of any individualism that may cause dissention. The party utilized several different means and operated through multifarious mediums to achieve this unification of social consciousness; some of these methods of transformation like propaganda or education guided under Communist values were directly implemented in social sectors to achieve immediate results, and READ ENTIRETY (Re-creating Mankind: The Philosophy and Actualization of the “New Soviet Man”; By Jon Savage – James Duban, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief; The Eagle Feather – A Publication for Undergraduate Scholars (University of North Texas); 2011 Edition)

 

The Marxist/Leninist approach to rule was sow seeds of discontent then implement violent rebellion to overthrow a non-Communist regime.

 

The Eurocommunist approach was (or is) a quiet revolution by gaining dominance in societal institutions such as Media, Entertainment, Academia and Government Institutions (We can call this the Shadow/Deep State). You need to bone up on the information you can find. In America, Eurocommunism may not be appropriate, so here let’s call it the Gramsci/Alinsky approach. Here’s an excerpt from a 2008 article written on the cusp of the beginning of Obama’s Fundamental Transformation:

 

Gramsci, as you may (or may not) know was the Italian Marxist theorist who evolved what we in America knew as the “Popular Front” approach to Marxist revolution–burrowing within organizations rather than attacking capitalism head on–and evolving it into a fine art of infiltration and cultural destruction. The end result: to completely alter the political message to one defending capitalism, religion, the middle class, family, and Western cultural traditions–including government, academia, media, and jurisprudence–to a new message that dwelt upon the evils of tradition, the oppressiveness of the West, etc. Gramsci believed that by changing the cultural message–for current usage, substitute the word “narrative”–to one espousing socialism and class struggle, you could eviscerate Western culture from within.

 

 

The seditious role of the community organiser was developed by an extreme left intellectual called Saul Alinsky. He was a radical Chicago activist who, by the time he died in 1972, had had a profound influence on the highest levels of the Democratic party. Alinsky was a ‘transformational Marxist’ in the mould of Antonio Gramsci, who promoted the strategy of a ‘long march through the institutions’ by capturing the culture and turning it inside out as the most effective means of overturning western society. …

His creed was set out in his book ‘Rules for Radicals’ – a book he dedicated to Lucifer, whom he called the ‘first radical’. It was Alinsky for whom ‘change’ was his mantra. And by ‘change’, he meant a Marxist revolution achieved by slow, incremental, Machiavellian means which turned society inside out. This had to be done through systematic deception, winning the trust of the naively idealistic middle class by using the language of morality to conceal an agenda designed to destroy it. And the way to do this, he said, was through ‘people’s organisations’.

 

 

“March through the institutions.” That pretty well describes what’s been going on and I couldn’t agree more. READ ENTIRETY (Obama = Alinsky = Gramsci = Marx; Posted by Wonker; HazZzMat; 9/15/08 8:32 PM)

 

Due to an American divide politically, I’m not sure if one can point to a subversive path against the U.S. Constitution. My guess the is the current status of subversion is a combination of Marxist/Leninist (the Bill Ayers dream) and Gramsci/Alinsky.

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

Poverty

 

Supports directing more federal resources to “lifting up communities that have been left out and left behind, such as the 10-20-30 model, which directs 10 percent of program funds to communities where at least 20 percent of the population has been living below the poverty line for 30 years or more.”

 

Supports protecting programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

 

Supports helping people “grow their skills through jobs and skills training opportunities.”

 

Supports expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program for low-wage workers not raising children, including extending the credit to young workers starting at age 21.

 

Supports expanding the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and making more of it refundable, or indexed to inflation to stem the erosion of the credit.

 

EVERYTHING I wrote on the Dem Platform on National Service is applicable to the platform on Poverty.

A Challenge to Point out Communism in Dem Party Platform PT 1


John R. Houk

© October 25, 2018

I recently received criticism on a MeWe group for sharing a Justin Smith post entitled “Liberty First and Foremost”. The beginning of Justin’s essay said this:

 

The Democratic Party has grown to be the enemy within our country, and the communist Democrats working in federal positions are the same as foreign agents infiltrated into federal agencies, seeking to do whatever is needed to end this republic.

 

Chris Worth at this MeWe group said something to the effect he read equating the Dems to a “Communist” and decided the post was worthless and hence encouraged readers there was no need to read further.

 

That kind of irked me. So, I quipped he should read the Dem Party Platform to see the Communism dripping from the words.

 

Essentially Chris Worth called bull and challenged me to show where Communism was found in the Dem Platform.

 

Ergo the purpose of this post.

 

Responding to Chris Worth of LEFT VS RIGHT~DEBATE IS ON! FIGHT FOR YOUR CAUSE! On MeWe

 

The Democratic Party Platform is updated every 4 years corresponding to Presidential elections. The 2016 Dem platform true to Socialist/Communist ideology to fool the people, disguises their words to sound appealing, yet when compared to the less likely to disguise Socialist/Marxist agenda of making decisions rather than offering choices is quite apparent. The DNC Platform is 50 pages of disguised flowery promises impossible for the most part to accomplish without bankrupting government and/or taxing “We The People” so heavily that no one will ever manage their own affairs without government –cough– guidance.

 

Here’s a summary of the 50-page platform with a little added commentary:

 

Bioethics Issues

 

Supports appointing judges who defend abortion rights.

 

Opposes efforts to limit or prohibit taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.

 

Opposes any laws that limit abortion.

 

Supports the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funds from being used for abortion services.

 

Supports free abortion and contraceptives for all women.

 

Supports “sexual and reproductive health and rights around the globe.”

 

Opposes the “global gag rule” and the Helms Amendment that bars American assistance to abortion throughout the developing world.

 

Here’s the Socialist/Marxist rub on “Abortion Rights”. There is NO WHERE in the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing a right to kill unborn babies for the primary purpose of exacting birth control for unwanted pregnancies. An “Abortion Right” was created by a majority decision of SCOTUS using a frankly UNCONSTITUTIONAL Living Constitution paradigm interpreting the Constitution NOT by what is written, instead ignoring what the Constitution should mean. The Living Constitution paradigm ensures an elite few rather than the Amendment/Convention of States process prescribed by the Constitution (See Also LexisNexus summary) to make the Rule of Law.

 

Dem Platform summary continued:

 

Criminal Justice Reform

 

Supports reforming mandatory minimum sentences and closing private prisons and detention centers.

 

Supports working with police chiefs to invest in training for officers on issues such as de-escalation and the creation of national guidelines for the appropriate use of force.

 

Encourages better police-community relations.

 

Supports requiring the use of body cameras.

 

Opposes the use of “weapons of war that have no place in our communities.”

 

Opposes racial profiling that targets individuals solely on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, or national origin.

 

Supports a requirement to make the Department of Justice investigate all “questionable or suspicious police-involved shootings.”

 

Supports states and localities “who help make those investigations and prosecutions more transparent, including through reforming the grand jury process.”

 

Supports assisting states in providing a system of public defense that is adequately resourced and meets American Bar Association standards.

 

Supports reforming the civil asset forfeiture system to “protect people and remove perverse incentives for law enforcement to ‘police for a profit.’”

 

Supports removing barriers to help formerly incarcerated individuals successfully re-enter society by “banning the box” (persuading employers to remove from their hiring applications the check box that asks if applicants have a criminal record). Supports executive action to “ban the box for federal employers and contractors, so applicants have an opportunity to demonstrate their qualifications before being asked about their criminal records.”

 

Supports expanding re-entry programs, and restoring voting rights for felons.

 

Supports, whenever possible, prioritizing prevention and treatment over incarceration when tackling addiction and substance use disorder.

 

Endorses the use of effective models of drug courts, veterans’ courts, and other diversionary programs that “seek to give nonviolent offenders opportunities for rehabilitation as opposed to incarceration.”

 

Supports abolishing the death penalty.

 

This dreamy sounding police reform if read carefully, smacks of Big Government (i.e. The State, Big Brother, Comrade Leader, World Leader, Alphas, Chairman, Supreme Leader, Führer … Obama) control of local lives. Racism is bad, right? When race baiters begin victimizing the majority, who are the racists. What is the correct view of Social Justice? Is usurping or destroying property to mindlessly equalize a race or the poor for past wrongs of Justice or Injustice (socio-philosophy & Biblical  perspective)?

 

The Socialist/Communist/Democrat as evidenced by history and recent events spurred on by Dems and their acolytes (e.g. Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Militant LGBTQ, etc.). The so-called reforms for Criminal Justice are code words to enlist the disgruntled to control Americans that still respect the Constitution as the Rule of Law and remember sacrifices that has led America being a great nation.

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

Discrimination and Racial Issues

 

Supports ending discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.

 

Supports promoting “racial justice through fair, just, and equitable governing of all public-serving institutions and in the formation of public policy.”

 

Supports removing the Confederate battle flag from public properties, “recognizing that it is a symbol of our nation’s racist past that has no place in our present or our future.”

 

Calls for a “societal transformation to make it clear that black lives matter and that there is no place for racism in our country.”

 

Supports U.S. ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.

 

Supports adding the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

 

Much of these flowery words are already covered by American Rule of Law. Key terms deceptively slipped in that probably most voters who agree that racism is bad and any form of discrimination against women is bad, probably don’t understand that “sexual orientation and gender identity” mean making the ungodly LGBTQ lifestyle normal ignoring the standard in Christian Morality noting such a life is NOT natural. The Left has used activist Courts for decades to AGAIN … transform society via the non-constitutional path of Leftist Judicial Activism and Leftist media brainwashing.

 

I’ve had a bit of trouble locating a web page charting American attitudes toward homosexuality. I suspect largely it is anathema to show how much Americans viewed the LGBTQ as a perverse lifestyle. Here is an article obviously supportive of homosexuality going through the “struggles” of being homosexual and the American Rule of Law: Being Gay Used to Be Illegal; 3/27/16.

 

I have mixed feelings on the old Confederate flag. While it is a symbol of America’s slavery past it is also a period in history which Americans deeply believed in their cause which divided America into its bloodiest war when American killed American (uncannily similar to the present – is there a Civil War emerging?).

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

Drugs and Drug Abuse

 

Supports the federal government removing marijuana from the list of “Schedule 1” federal controlled substances and to appropriately regulate it, “providing a reasoned pathway for future legalization.”

 

Supports states that want to decriminalize marijuana or provide access to medical marijuana.

 

Supports policies that will allow more research on marijuana, as well as reforming our laws to “allow legal marijuana businesses to exist without uncertainty.”

 

Supports expanding “access to prevention and treatment, supporting recovery, helping community organizations, and promoting better practices by prescribers.”

 

Supports expanding access to care for addiction services, and ensuring that insurance coverage is “equal to that for any other health conditions.”

 

Such legislation should be along a State’s Rights issue. This is a case that the Federal government observe:

 

Amendment X

 

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

Education

 

Supports making community college free for all students.

 

Supports the federal government pushing “more colleges and universities to take quantifiable, affirmative steps in increasing the percentages of racial and ethnic minority, low-income, and first-generation students they enroll and graduate.”

 

Supports “ensuring the strength of our Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions.”

 

Supports refinancing of current student loan debt.

 

Supports simplifying and expanding “access to income-based repayment so that no student loan borrowers ever have to pay more than they can afford.”

 

Supports a student borrower bill of rights to “ensure borrowers get adequate information about options to avoid or get out of delinquency or default.”

 

Supports the Public Service Loan Forgiveness and loan discharge programs “begun by the Obama Administration.”

 

Supports the inclusion of student loans in bankruptcy.

 

Supports a moratorium on student loan payments to all federal loan borrowers.

 

Supports restoring year-round Pell funding.

 

Supports strengthening the gainful employment rule to ensure that for-profit schools enable students to complete their degrees and prepare them for work.

 

Supports the Department of Education using their oversight to “close down those for-profit schools that consistently engage in fraudulent and illegal conduct.”

 

Supports universal preschool for all children.

 

Supports efforts to “raise wages for childcare workers, and to ensure that early childhood educators are experienced and high-quality.”

 

Supports increased investments in afterschool and summer learning programs.

 

Encourages group mentoring programs.

 

Encourage states to develop a “multiple measures approach to assessment, and we believe that standardized tests must be reliable and valid.”

 

Opposes use of standardized tests that “falsely and unfairly label students of color, students with disabilities and English Language Learners as failing.”

 

Opposes the use of standardized test scores as basis for refusing to fund schools or to close schools.

 

Opposes the use of student test scores in teacher and principal evaluations.

 

Support enabling parents to opt their children out of standardized tests without penalty for either the student or their school.

 

Supports a national campaign to recruit and retain high-quality teachers.

 

Supports “high-quality STEAM classes, community schools, computer science education, arts education, and expand link learning models and career pathways.”

 

Supports ending end the “school-to-prison pipeline by opposing discipline policies which disproportionately affect African Americans and Latinos, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, students with disabilities, and youth who identify as LGBT.”

 

Supports the use of restorative justice practices that “help students and staff resolve conflicts peacefully and respectfully while helping to improve the teaching and learning environment.”

 

Supports improving “school culture” and combating “bullying of all kinds.”

 

Supports expanding Title I funding for schools that serve a large number or high concentration of children in poverty.

 

Supports charter schools but opposes for-profit charter schools.

 

Supports increasing sexual violence prevention education programs that “cover issues like consent and bystander intervention, not only in college, but also in secondary school.”

 

This huge Education summary can be boiled down to reality! For such Education Reforms to take place the classic Communist principle of Wealth Redistribution will be forced upon American taxpayers. For Education Reform in this platform Americans capable of paying taxes will be thrust into poverty. Then OOPS! No more money to steal from taxpayers for the unsustainable Education Reform. Then what? The only way the Dems could maintain control of the government is to terminate the Constitution and institute rule-by-force. Then boom! The Utopian lies turn America into a totalitarian regime giving more to the government telling people what to support, how to believe and ultimately terminate Faith (meaning Judeo-Christian Morality) in favor of a government managed Secular Humanism.

DiscoverObamaDOTcom

Published on Oct 27, 2008

 

And voters put Obama in Office for 8 YEARS when his agenda was transparently Marxist! MIND BOGGLING!

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

Faith-Based Organizations

 

Says: “We believe in lifting up and valuing the good work of people of faith and religious organizations and finding ways to support that work where possible.”

 

Now that is a load of lying donkey dung. It is the Dems and Dem supporters that condemn traditional (NOT RADICAL) faith based organizations for standing for traditional Christian Moral Values derived from the Bible (See Also Manhattan Declaration). It is the Dems and Dem supporters that fell in line with Judicial activist Judges who extra-constitutionally changed Constitution of the First Amendment from Freedom of Religion to Freedom from Religion in all taxpayer supported venues (Of interest: The Establishment Clause, Civil Religion, and the Public Church).

 

Dem Party rejection of faith as the backbone of American culture is evidence of Marx’s Stage Development Theory dream of marching toward Socialism ending in Communism.

 

Dem Platform Summary Continued:

 

Human Trafficking

 

Supports the “full force of the law against those who engage in modern-day forms of slavery, including the commercial sexual exploitation and forced labor of men, women, and children.

 

Supports increasing diplomatic efforts with foreign governments to “root out complicit public officials who facilitate or perpetrate this evil.”

 

Supports increasing the “provision of services and protections for trafficking survivors.”

 

If the Dems could ever be trusted in sincerity, this stand would be awesome.

Intro to PragerU’s ‘Who Is Karl Marx?’


Intro by John R. Houk

© September 27, 2018

I have read that Millennials have become sympathetic to the concept of Socialism. Here are three definitions from Merriam-Webster:

 

1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

 

2 a: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

 

b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

 

3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

 

Vladimir Lenin – the first dictator of the Soviet Union once said, “The goal of socialism is communism.”

 

Communism is often attributed to the theories promoted by Karl Marx. Those theories are absolutely contradictory to what has made America great. And yet Millennials find favor with the Socialist ideology that would turn America into a totalitarian nation.

 

PragerU gives a short explanation of what Karl Marx got rolling.

When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. In this video, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, illuminates the life of the mild-mannered 19th Century German whose ideas led to the rise of some of the most brutal dictators in world history.

Democratic Socialists Of America Is A Communist Organization


Yesterday I cross posted Mark Alexander’s essay taking a look at Socialist-Marxist fomenting uncivil socio-political unrest in America.

 

Today I ran into an essay by Trevor Loudon explaining how Marxist-Communist principles and agenda is creeping into acceptance by Americans via a Gramsci-esque stealth infusion by describing itself as Democratic.

Democratic Socialists Of America Is A Communist Organization

Democratic Socialists of America

 

News Analysis

 

America’s largest socialist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), recruited tens of thousands of young people during the presidential campaign through the Bernie Sanders movement. Recently, their membership has been given another boost in the wake of DSA member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s upset victory over New York Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in June.

 

Most of the new DSA comrades genuinely believe they are working for a better America. These indoctrinated souls have no idea that by joining DSA, they have become part of the international communist movement.

 

DSA claims to be working for an America that looks more like Scandinavia — yet it harbors many members loyal to Cuba, China, and even the old Eastern Bloc.

 

In fact, the rapidly growing Marxist organization has many serious communists in leadership positions — including convicted East German spy Kurt Stand, who was a long-time DSA national leader even before he was forced to serve a prison sentence for his role in passing U.S. secrets to East Germany’s Stasi secret police. (His ex-wife, Theresa Squillacote, who worked in the Pentagon, was also sent to prison.)

 

Stand was released in 2012 and has since assumed a leadership role in the Metro Washington DSA.

 

East Germany was known officially as the German Democratic Republic. DSA is just as “Democratic” as was Stand’s beloved Stalinist East Germany.

 

A Bit of History

 

DSA was founded in 1982 from a merger of the 5,000-strong Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) and the 1,200 to 1,500 members of the New American Movement (NAM). The leader of DSOC was Michael Harrington, whose 1962 book “The Other America” is credited with being the inspiration behind President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty” initiative known as the Orwellian-sounding “Great Society.”

 

While DSOC could claim a few genuinely anti-communist old-time socialists in its ranks, NAM was much more communist-oriented. Most younger members of NAM came out of the anti-Vietnam War protests of the 1970s and the Maoist-leaning Students for a Democratic Society. Most of the older members were former Communist Party USA militants. NAM tilted the Democratic Socialists to the left, and as more younger people joined, the party became increasingly pro-communist.

 

DSA draws heavily from the ideas of the late Italian Communist Party theoretician Antonio Gramsci.

 

Realizing that old-style violent revolution was not working in Europe, Gramsci came up with a new plan. Rather than using the standard Marxist-Leninist revolutionary model of inciting the workers to revolt against their bosses, Gramsci reasoned, why not infiltrate communists into all areas of society?

 

The phrase “long march through the institutions,” coined by Gramsci student and German revolutionary Rudi Dutschke, reflects this vision. To achieve revolution, infiltrate the field of education, journalism, the churches, entertainment, labor unions, civic organizations, and mainstream political parties.

 

The Orange County, California, branch of the DSA acknowledged its debt to Gramsci in its February 1984 newsletter:

 

“Antonio Gramsci was a founder of the Italian Communist Party. He developed theories on ‘open-ended Marxism’ and independent Euro-Communism. His writings have remained influential among European parties of the left for several decades. They have also formed a vital part of the ideas that brought about the formation of today’s DSA.”

 

With Gramsci’s doctrine firmly in play, DSA was able to accomplish this infiltration on many fronts. Here is a sample:

 

  • AFL-CIO president and DSA member John Sweeney fundamentally transformed the U.S. labor movement in 1994–95.

 

  • DSA comrades like actor Ed Asner moved Hollywood even further left through their influence in the entertainment unions.

 

  • Eliseo Medina, a DSA comrade and former executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, almost single-handedly started the political movement to legalize illegal aliens. Medina became President Barack Obama’s unofficial immigration adviser.

 

  • Ron Bloom, who served under Obama directly as “assistant to the president for manufacturing policy,” was a member of the DSA’s predecessor, the DSOC.

 

  • The movement for single-payer (government-run healthcare) is and continues to be a DSA operation. It started with Chicago DSA comrade Dr. Quentin Young, another mentor to Obama.

 

  • Academia has been overrun with Marxist professors, who are grooming the next generation of radicals. DSA is well-established through their youth organization, Young Democratic Socialists of America, with chapters on university campuses and even high schools all over the country.

 

  • Thousands of “community organizers” — labor organizers and nonprofit officials — have been trained through the DSA-aligned Midwest Academy in Chicago.

 

  • DSA member Michael Moore has influenced millions through his documentaries, and DSA member Linda Sarsour is a prominent pro-Sharia activist and speaker, including her role at the Communist Party USA-sponsored Women’s March.

 

Additionally, hundreds of DSAers have taken on prominent roles in the churches, including Norm Faramelli, who served as an adjunct faculty member in Christian ethics at the Episcopal Divinity School; Michael Eric Dyson, who was a theology teacher at Georgetown University; Rosemary Ruether, formerly of the Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary; Cornel West, professor of philosophy and Christian practice at Union Theological Seminary; Eugene TeSelle, former professor of philosophy and Christian practice at Union Theological Seminary (and a mentor to presidential candidate Al Gore); Gary Dorrien, Reinhold Niebuhr professor of social ethics at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York and professor of religion at Columbia University; and Steve Charleston, former president and dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

 

Infiltrating the Government

 

The Democratic Party has always been a major target for DSA. Most DSA comrades in the early days were also Democrats, and members held office all through the party.

 

In the early 1990s, New York Mayor David Dinkins and St. Paul, Minnesota, Mayor Jim Scheibel were DSA comrades. DSA had many state legislators, county commissioners, and local officials in its ranks — almost all under Democratic Party cover.

 

Several Congress members were DSAers, including Rep. Major Owens (New York) and the pro-Cuba Rep. Ron Dellums of California, who shockingly served on the House Armed Services Committee.

 

In 1991, Bernie Sanders and the DSA got together to set up the House Progressive Caucus, now known as the Congressional Progressive Caucus. At nearly 80 members strong, it is the largest and most influential caucus in the House.

 

The Congressional Progressive Caucus will likely gain several new members this coming election, including card-carrying DSA members Ocasio-Cortez of Queens, New York, and Rashida Tlaib of Detroit, Michigan. Both have won their Democratic primaries and look certain to be elected in November. But Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib are far from the only DSA members and allies who have won their primaries so far this election cycle alone.

 

What Is the Plan?

 

While touted in the media as a new movement, DSA is nothing but warmed-over communism. Reading their inner party documents soon provides a clearer view of the organization’s intentions.

 

For example, Detroit DSA leader Dr. David Green visited Cuba to review the communist dictatorship’s health system. He wrote in Greater Detroit DSA’s May 2009 newsletter: “One of the most impressive features of Cuban society is its healthcare system. The Cuban system demonstrates what can be accomplished when health care is viewed as a human right rather than a commodity.”

 

Green also wrote in DSA’s publication Democratic Left, in Spring 2007, “Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production.”

 

When DSA members boast that they want to end capitalism, they mean it. All private business is the Marxist’s enemy.

 

Pressuring lawmakers to implement policies favorable to the revolution is the ongoing goal of many Marxist organizations, and DSA is dedicated to several policies that they believe would further that goal. During their annual convention, an estimated 700 to 800 delegates voted to abolish the police altogether and additionally to empty the prisons.

 

The DSA has been clear about their desire to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency of the Department of Homeland Security. DSA wants to economically isolate “apartheid” Israel, strongly supporting the so-called BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement. They are very active in pushing for so-called anti-gentrification policies and for rent control. One of DSA’s most coveted policy positions is the euphemistically named “Medicare for All,” or Single Payer.

 

DSA is using massive resources to push these policies on a local and national level, from having their thousands of members engage in knocking on doors, to pressure elected officials to make Single Payer a part of their platform.

 

DSA, ‘Totalitarianism,’ and ‘Direct Action’

 

Many DSA members tout “democracy” while supporting totalitarianism. Consider that many of their members are associated with — or are outright members of — the anarchist “anti-fascist” movement known as Antifa. One will rarely if ever, find a DSA member denouncing the violence of Antifa. DSA members were active “counter-protesters” along with other communist groups and Antifa during the infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in August 2017, for example.

 

One prime example of the DSA–Antifa alliance is evident in the violence-promoting organization, the Knights for Socialism, a front for Young Democratic Socialists of Orlando at the University of Central Florida. The members of the Knights for Socialism are largely DSA members, and leader Dylan Tyer has prominent positions with the local DSA and YDSA. It should be noted that the former regional field director of the Florida Democratic Party, Adam Whitmer, was elected chair of the Democratic Socialists of Orlando last year.

 

The Knights for Socialism gained notoriety for its “Bash the Fash” event held last year, billed as a “self-defense seminar” held “in response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinos, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis.” The Knights for Socialism logo is the Antifa flag.

 

In addition to their association with Antifa, DSA members can be credited for starting the politically embarrassing trend of ambushing immigration officials. The event that started the short-lived but media-hyped movement was an impromptu ambush organized by the Metro DC chapter of the DSA on Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on June 19 while she dined with a colleague.

 

In that case, the chair of the Metro DC chapter, Margaret McLaughlin, posted the restaurant’s address on Twitter, prompting fellow comrades to come shout “Shame!” at Nielsen during dinner. Other DSA members included Allison Hrabar, Jesse Rabinowitz, and Austin Kendall. Instead of being condemned, the event received glowing coverage in The New York Times and CNN, among others.

 

The day after the ambush, and in response to media coverage referring to the participants as “activists,” the Metro DC DSA tweeted indignantly: “We’re not ‘liberals,’ not vague ‘activists.’ We’re socialist organizers.”

 

That initial action spurred a wave of ambush-like actions on the homes of immigration officials. But the glowing coverage of those actions ended abruptly after California Rep. Maxine Waters took the rhetoric too far a couple of days later when she instructed Americans to “absolutely harass” White House officials.

 

In the aftermath, DSA member Allison Hrabar received a bit of attention, considering her work in the anti-trust division of the U.S. Justice Department. It appears that Hrabar, a member of the Metro DC chapter’s steering committee, is still employed by the federal government while continuing to be very much involved in her socialist activism.

 

While DSA claims to fight authoritarianism at home, it is quite happy to support totalitarianism abroad. In February, long-time DSA comrade Daniel Adkins published an article in Democratic Left daring to argue that the United States was in economic competition with “mercantilist” China. This prompted a furious response by the Seattle DSA, Boston DSA, and the Communist Caucus of East Bay DSA claiming that his article “was both irresponsible and morally inexcusable” and “pits the U.S. working class against the Chinese working class.”

 

The critics insisted that the article be removed and further demanded that a “statement [be] published on DSA’s blog in due time affirming a commitment to internationalism, acknowledging that the Adkins piece should not have been published, and refusing to publish pieces promoting national chauvinist or anti-Chinese perspectives in the future.”

 

Global Alliances

 

During their annual convention in August 2017, DSA dropped its longstanding affiliation to the Socialist International (SI), the more-than-a-century-old alliance of socialist and social democratic parties — because they are too moderate!

 

According to the revolutionary publication Left Voice:

 

“The resolution that passed stated, ‘Our affiliation with the Socialist International hinders our ability to develop stronger relationships with parties and social movements that share our values and which, in many cases, are bitterly opposed to their country’s SI affiliate(s),’ and, ‘In many countries, they have helped to lead the attack on the welfare state and on the rights of workers and unions.’”

 

After ditching the SI, the Democratic Socialists began looking around for new foreign friends.

 

According to an article published by Democratic Left on Nov. 25, 2017:

 

“In early November, DSA Deputy Director David Duhalde spoke on two European United Left/Nordic Green Left panels at the European Parliament—building ‘real global party ties for a post-Socialist International DSA.’

 

“Then he appeared on a Sinn Fein program and ‘shared a special moment’ with a former political prisoner about the Irish and Chilean struggles against authoritarianism.”

 

European United Left/Nordic Green Left is a caucus of communist, Marxist, and Green parties in the European Parliament, formed in 1995.

 

“They have taken special note of DSA as part of the larger surge of interest in socialism in the U.S. and the popularity of Bernie Sanders,” the article said.

 

Sinn Fein is the socialist legal wing of the former Marxist-Leninist terrorist Irish Republican Army.

 

When communists run for public office in America as openly communist, they are lucky to break 100 votes. Yet when they run covertly as Democrats, they can win seats on school boards, county commissions, and even in Congress. DSA is now 48,000 members strong. It has locals in every state and is busily taking over Democratic branches from Texas to Maine, from Nebraska to Hawaii.

 

Americans should demand that the Democratic Party be held accountable for allowing their party to be infiltrated by radical DSA Marxists.

Intro to ‘From Uncivil Discourse to Civil War?’


Intro by John R. Houk, Blog Editor

By Mark Alexander

Posted August 16, 2018

Mark Alexander’s Patriot Post column Wednesday (8/15/18) has a title that demands to be read – From Uncivil Discourse to Civil War?

 

Alexander’s zeros in more on the uncivil discourse than the potential outcome of socio-political incivility. The growing separating supporters of the American Left and American Conservatives will end in Civil War if a consensus mending does not occur.

 

The theme The Patriot Post is the growing violence occurring in the name of Socialism. The Dems embracing this Socialism have attempted to anesthetize the term by calling the ideology Democratic Socialism. The reality though about Democratic Socialism is it is the politics of Communism.

 

Mark Alexander summed up Communism by this excerpted description:

 

Russia’s “Red October” Revolution was inspired by the Communist Manifesto, published by Karl Marx in 1848. Marx wrote, “The theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property. … Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily destroyed.” (Bold text by Blog Editor)

 

 

As history would have it, Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin sided with Marx: “The goal of socialism,” he said, “is communism.” But instead of a utopian socialist “workers’ paradise,” a succession of brutal communist tyrants unleashed seven decades of global terror — at an incalculable human toll.

 

 

In 1959, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev told Eisenhower’s Cabinet Secretary Ezra Taft Benson: “Your children’s children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you; We’ll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”

 

 

Fact is, National Socialism and Democratic Socialism are much the same as Marxist Socialism — behind the façades. (Bold text by Blog Editor)

 

Contemporary leftists would like you to believe that there’s a clear distinction, but Adolf Hitler was certainly a socialist. In his autobiography Mein Kampf, Hitler wrote of his Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers’ Party, the “NAZI Party”), “The party should not become a constable of public opinion, but must dominate it. It must not become a servant of the masses, but their master.” On the socialist state versus individual Liberty, he wrote, “The unity of a nation’s spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual; and that the higher interests involved in the life of the whole must here set the limits and lay down the duties of the interests of the individual.”

 

READ ENTIRETY (Communism — A Centennial Celebration of Tyranny and Terror; By Mark Alexander; The Patriot Post; 10/25/17)

 

Socialism, Democratic Socialism & Communism represent everything America IS NOT! Conservative know this. The younger generation of mostly Millennials have been brainwashed by years of alternative history AND a lack of true history, especially in the failure to teach American history.

 

ERGO, a chasm widens Americans which will erupt into Civil War – AGAIN.

From Uncivil Discourse to Civil War?

Historic socialist assaults on Liberty were not as organized and targeted, nor did they have the tacit approval of a major political party.

 

By Mark Alexander 

Aug. 15, 2018

The Patriot Post

 

“Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue.” —John Witherspoon (1776)

 

Make America Civil Again

 

The Democrat Party’s fastest growing identity-politics constituency has, for the last decade, been coalescing around a theme that is both animating and destructive: Hate. The current chorus of contemptible rhetoric comes from leftist Demo antagonists, their Leftmedia propagandists whose ad revenues depend on conflict and dissent, and the hate-profiteering groups now forming “thought patrols.”

 

Make no mistake: This new constituency is growing more desperate and disenfranchised by the day, and the inherent risks of such hate-filled rhetoric pose an ominous threat to civility and to the future of American Liberty.

 

Since 1960, Democrats have built their party along lines of division, and now, they rely almost completely on the politics of disunity to sustain their constituencies and maintain their power. Their political playbook has only one chapter: “Divide and Conquer.” The two major lines of this Demo-division are economic class disparity, created in large measure by their own failed economic policies, and the socio-cultural victimization cards of race, ethnicity, religion, and gender.

 

But as their political identity constituencies began to soften, they have resorted to a new identity attribute to unify all the others: Hate.

 

Over the last decade, fomenting hate has become the centerpiece of Democrat strategy. But as the party has become more radicalized and its rhetoric more unhinged, the center-left is being eviscerated. The net result is that fewer Democrats are proud to be Americans and, as an astounding new Gallup poll notes, Democrats now prefer socialism to capitalism.

 

Barack Obama, who was himself a disciple of hate, spawned in 2011 a movement of “useful idiots” under the “Occupy Wall Street” banner. That movement was joined by the so-called “Black Lives Matter” constituency in 2014 and the emerging “antifa movement” of self-proclaimed anti-fascist fascists in 2016.

 

Notwithstanding the fact that Obama’s BLM-fueled hatred inspired the murder of police officers in New York and in Dallas, antifa is now emerging as the most broadly violent of leftist groups. Its riotous confrontations in August 2017, targeting the normally quiet town of Charlottesville, Virginia, ostensibly in support of the removal of historic monuments, prompted liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz to make this clear to his Democrat colleagues: “Antifa is a radical, anti-America, anti-free market, communist, socialist, hard-left sensorial organization.”

 

Idiotfest – Democratic Socialists of America

 

These groups have two common denominators. They embrace and spread hate and they subscribe to the delusion of democratic socialism. They are well organized by statist handlers, including Direct Action Network and Democratic Socialists of America — a.k.a., fascists. They are well financed by their billionaire backers, the archenemies of Liberty — George Soros, Tom Steyer, Jeff Bezos, and Michael Bloomberg.

 

In 2016, socialist/fascists consolidated around the candidacy of Bernie Sanders, whose non-Democratic presidential primary bid was surreptitiously stolen by Obama’s heir-apparent, Hillary Clinton. But in reality, Clinton’s Democrats and Sanders’s socialists constitute a distinction without much difference. Indeed, the Democrat Party’s protagonists, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and of course Sanders, have become a unified chorus of populist socialism deniers and hate provocateurs.

 

The stunning defeat of Clinton in 2016 by Donald Trump, who has mastered the art of antagonizing his opponents, greatly amplified the leftist tenor of hatred. The most strident of the Demo hate-spewers have decompensated into an illness alternatively called “Trump Derangement Syndrome” or the more formal “Trump Anxiety Disorder.”

 

But the escalating violence and the unprovoked attacks on Republicans and Trump supporters is no laughing matter.

 

The most notable of those attacks was in June 2017, when one of Bernie Sanders’s conscripts, an Obama “99%”er from Illinois, attempted the mass murder of congressional Republicans on a Virginia baseball field. This deranged Democrat severely wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and injured four others before being killed by Scalise’s security detail. Notably, if Scalise and his security team hadn’t attended this early morning practice, the other 11 members of Congress would have been utterly defenseless.

 

But the list of other assaults is long and growing more violent.

 

In the last two weeks, the Demos’ hate-filled constituencies have rioted in three cities: Providence, Rhode Island; Portland, Oregon; and Berkeley, California. I would include Washington, DC, on that list, but the police presence there last weekend largely contained the haters before they became violent, much to the Leftmedia’s dismay.

 

Antifa – Then & Now

 

It’s no small irony that leftist protesters are confusing conservatives with Nazis. Ironic, I note, because the hatred being driven by leftist Demo rhetoric is taking on shades of the 1934 “Night of the Long Knives” purges of the National Socialist German Workers Party, as there is a now-discernible trend of Democrat moderates being pushed aside for hyper-leftist candidates. The most notable case in point would be the defeat of 10-term Demo incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th congressional district by 28-year-old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

 

If the brown shirt fits

 

As Rep. Steve King (R-IA), never one to shy away from hard-hitting and controversial remarks, observed recently, “America is heading in the direction of another Harpers Ferry. After that comes Fort Sumter.”

 

We aren’t there yet.

 

Our nation’s Constitution and the Liberty it enshrines have been through cycles of assault by socialists, fascists, and anarchist groups for the last hundred years. But what differentiates the current cycle from those of the past is that past movements were never as organized and targeted, nor did they have the tacit approval of a major political party.

 

The escalating Demo-inspired violence certainly puts our nation on a collision course with disunity on a national scale — if it does not subside.
