A Beginner’s Guide To American Communist Parties: Part 1


The ideology of Communism has always been a threat to the Founding Fathers’ vision of a Republic accountable to WE THE PEOPLE, Liberty, and Biblical Moral principles forming the backbone to make America good (of interest on a Biblically moral America: HERE and HERE). With that in  mind Noisy Room is posting Trevor Loudon’s exposé on contemporary Communism in the Democratic Party today.

It’s been this author’s experience that most American journalists, politicians, police officers, and even intelligence officers have minimal understanding of America’s contemporary communist movement.

 

The average American voter, naturally, has very few outlets available that acknowledge the continued existence and influence of contemporary communism. Yet, communism is currently the single most important political and cultural influence in the country. Therefore, thumbnail sketches are provided here that outline the more significant domestic communist organizations currently working to undermine the Constitution and impose socialism on the American people.

 

A word on communism versus socialism: Socialism is a euphemism for communism. They are two peas in the same pod and all lead to tyranny. Communism is socialism, and those who want you to believe otherwise are attempting to indoctrinate you. Period.

 

There are two American “lefts”: Communists willing to work with and inside the Democratic Party to achieve their goals; and communists who regard the Democrats as a hopelessly “bourgeois” “capitalist” party.

 

The first group are more organized, realistic, and dangerous. The second group, like the first, often work with foreign communists and are more likely to engage in street-level violence.

 

Part 1 of this article will deal with the communists who work with the Democratic party, as a matter of policy. These organizations are the most subversive and dangerous in America.

 

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)

 

Despite their public regular protestations, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is a communist organization. Many of their 55,000+ members are indoctrinated college students, but most of their leaders are hard-core Marxist revolutionaries.

 

Currently the United States’ largest Marxist organization, the DSA was formed in 1982 out of two similar groups. The larger was the “Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee” that mainly consisted of older activists from the rapidly imploding Socialist Party USA. The smaller was the “New American Movement” that consisted of young Vietnam War-era “Students for a Democratic Society” members and a group of older radicals who split from the Communist Party after the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

 

The most enduring influence in the DSA is Antonio Gramsci. An Italian communist theoretician, Gramsci believed in promoting socialism through patient infiltration of all political and cultural institutions before resorting to revolutionary violence.

 

Americans of all political persuasions may be surprised to learn that the DSA was initially very influential in the Democratic Party. The DSA helped establish the Congressional Progressive Caucus in 1991 with long-time ally Bernie Sanders and was successful in electing hundreds of Democratic Party officials, many local politicians, and several congressmembers.

 

Currently serving Congress members Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Danny Davis (D-IL), and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) have all been dues-paying DSA comrades at some point. In the last election, the DSA elected more than 20 local and state officials and two additional Congress members, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

 

DSA influence waned through the early 2000s and by 2015, the organization was down to about 6,000 members, only about a third of whom were active.

 

Bernie Sanders changed all that. The DSA has backed Sanders since at least 1990. When he ran for president, the DSA became the backbone of his team. As Sanders took off, so did the DSA. When President Donald Trump got elected, DSA membership exploded, and is only now starting to slow, and in some places reverse.

 

The DSA now has more than 200 chapters in all 50 states. DSA strongholds are Boston, New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Detroit, Seattle, Portland, Oregon, the Bay Area, and Southern California, but almost every significant city in America — and many small towns — now have DSA chapters. New York City’s DSA branch boasts more than 3,000 dues-paying members; Austin, Texas, claims 700, and Portland, Oregon, has 800. These numbers have given the DSA huge ability to penetrate the Democratic Party in almost every state.

 

The DSA also controls an organization that gives backing to hard-left candidates called “Our Revolution,” which boasts 100,000 members working vigilantly to carry on the Sanders movement. Our Revolution’s door-knockers and phone bankers give the DSA the ability to elect comrades to Democratic committees and leadership posts all over the country. In July 2018, the Washington Post reported that the DSA “has never had more adherents or more clout.”

 

The DSA has a Religious Commission featuring many pastors, church officials, theologians, and religious academics vigilantly indoctrinating malleable minds that Christianity and socialism go hand-in-hand.

 

The DSA is also huge in the colleges. In the early days, nearly a third of DSA members were academics. Today, the youth-wing of the DSA is known as the YDSA and is featured on campuses across America.

 

For most of its existence, the DSA was formally affiliated with the Socialist International (SI), an alliance of more than 100 socialist and social democratic political parties. At their annual conference in Chicago in 2017, the DSA officially pulled out of the SI based on them being too moderate, allying instead with several European communist-oriented parties. The DSA is particularly close to Die Linke (The Left), which is the direct ancestor of the old Stalinist East German Communist Party.

 

In the 1980s, the DSA worked closely with Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, who eventually became the socialist president of Brazil. “Lula” then worked with Cuban president Fidel Castro to elect socialist governments across most of Latin America, known broadly as the “Red Tide.”

 

Prominent DSA members have included theologian professor Cornel West; the late father of the socialized healthcare movement and former Obama family doctor Quentin Young; Obama immigration adviser Eliseo Medina; actor Ed Asner; feminist Gloria Steinem; Muslim activist Linda Sarsour; and convicted East German spy Kurt Stand.

 

Communist Party USA (CPUSA)

 

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) was started in 1919 in Chicago, where it is headquartered today. In the 1940s, the CPUSA had over 100,000 members. With only 5,000 comrades, the CPUSA is not as large as it once was, but is still a political force with clout.

 

While the CPUSA has comrades in every state, it’s strongest in Boston, New York, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Missouri, Chicago, Detroit, Northern and Central Texas, Arizona, and California. The party has considerable influence in organizations such as the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, the U.S. Peace Council, Jobs with Justice, Alliance for Retired Americans, and dozens of smaller local front groups. The CPUSA is very active in the labor, environmental, and the “racial justice” movements. The CPUSA has systemically worked to recruit black pastors to cement their influence over the Democratic-voting black population.

 

The Democratic Party has long-since stopped expelling communists from their ranks. Consequently, in some parts of the country—Connecticut; West and South Chicago; Northeast Ohio; St. Louis, Missouri; Tucson, Arizona; Houston, Texas — the CPUSA controls some Democratic precincts.

 

In Connecticut, the CPUSA has relationships with the governor, both senators, all five Congress members, and multiple state, county, and city elected officials. In Texas, one CPUSA member, Sema Hernandez, ran on the Democratic ticket for the U.S. Senate and got 250,000 votes.

 

For decades, the CPUSA was a wholly-owned and subsidized Moscow franchise. Today, the CPUSA owes allegiance to China, but also maintains close ties to the communist parties of Russia, Vietnam, Cuba, Great Britain, Greece, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil.

 

The party still participates in all the still-existing Soviet-era international communist front organizations: World Peace Council, World Federation of Trade Unions, Women’s International Democratic Federation, and the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY). In 2017, the CPUSA sent a youth delegation to a WFDY festival in Sochi, Russia, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. Russian President Vladimir Putin personally secured the venue and then addressed the estimated 30,000 attendees.

 

Prominent modern CPUSA members include Party Chairman John Bachtell (once the precinct captain for then-Senate candidate Barack Obama), Judith LeBlanc, a Native-American activist who trained the protesters at the 2015 Dakota Access Pipeline stand-off, and perennial Cleveland Democratic Party candidate Rick Nagin.

 

The CPUSA also has some cross-membership with the DSA.

 

Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS)

 

The CCDS began in 1991 when approximately one-third of the CPUSA’s then 3,000 members split from the party to form a new organization. The ex-communists were quickly joined by dissident Maoists, Trotskyists, anarchists, and “democratic socialists.”

 

In 2000, the Committees of Correspondence (CoC or CofC) became the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS).

 

The organization quickly grew to 2,000 members and was poised to become what the DSA is today — a mass-based, multi-tendency socialist organization. However, in recent years the CCDS has dwindled to about 400 mainly older members.

 

The CCDS is headquartered in the Bay Area, and is strongest in Chicago, New York, Boston, Western Pennsylvania, Louisville, Kentucky, the Carolinas, and Mississippi. The organization has some electoral influence through its close work with the DSA.

 

Prominent members include Mississippi Democratic State Rep. Kathy Sykes and South Carolina labor leader Donna Dewitt. Iconic communist Angela Davis and folk musician Pete Seeger were early members, as was current California Congresswoman Barbara Lee.

 

The CCDS very strongly supports China and Vietnam, as well as Cuba and Venezuela.

 

The CCDS has some cross-membership with both the DSA and CPUSA.

 

Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO)/LeftRoots

 

The Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) grew out of the Maoist student movements of the 1960s, ’70s and early ’80s.

 

Formed in 1985, the FRSO drew together the Proletarian Unity League and the Revolutionary Workers Headquarters, and later the Organization for Revolutionary Unity, Amilcar Cabral-Paul Robeson Collective, and the Socialist Organizing Network. In 2000, the anarchist group Fire by Night joined. The FRSO also picked up members from the long-defunct Communist Workers’ Party, League of Revolutionary Struggle, Line of March, and Communist Party USA (Marxist-Leninist).

 

In 1999, the FRSO split in large part over the main faction’s willingness to work with the Democratic Party. The group that broke away — the Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Fight Back! division will be covered in part 2 of this series.

 

The FRSO doesn’t openly affiliate with China any longer, but many members work or live in China, or do solidarity work with Chinese organizations. Some members also work with pro-North Korean groups, or support Cuba, Venezuela, officially designated terrorist groups, the Communist Party of the Philippines, or the popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

 

The FRSO is extremely secretive about membership, but this author estimates that it has 2,000 to 3,000 active members. The FRSO is concentrated in the Bay Area and New York City, with significant centers in Los Angeles; Portland, Oregon; Seattle; Boston; Philadelphia; Ohio; Missouri; Tennessee; North Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; Austin, Texas; New Orleans; Southern Florida; and New Mexico.

 

The FRSO has some cross-membership with the DSA and CCDS.

 

Like all Maoist-derived groups, the FRSO delves heavily into racial and gender politics. The organization is comprised predominantly of “people of color,” at least 50 percent female, heavily gay, and comparatively young.

 

Black Lives Matter and the Marxist concept of “white privilege” comes from the FRSO orbit, along with the leftist fetish for using gender “neutral” pronouns.

 

Unlike most older Maoist groups, the FRSO is actively involved in electoral politics. The FRSO controls several voter registration/electoral front groups including the New Virginia Majority, the New Florida MajorityMemphis For All and Stand Up Nashville (both Tennessee), Durham For All (North Carolina), Lancaster Stands Up, and 215 People’s Alliance (both Pennsylvania), which have been pivotal in the elections of many local and national politicians.

 

The FRSO has deliberately targeted Southern states and areas with high black and Latino populations.

 

The FRSO also runs a plethora of well-funded front groups around the country including the Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco), Chinese Progressive Association (Boston), Highlander Research and Education Center (Tennessee), Miami Workers CenterRight to the City (New York City, with affiliates nationwide), Showing Up for Racial Justice (chapters nationwide), Southerners On New Ground (Atlanta/Birmingham), Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Causa Justa: Just Cause (Bay Area), and Strategic Concepts in Organizing and Policy Education (Los Angeles).

 

LeftRoots was formed in 2014 by Steve Williams, a former member of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), and N’Tanya Lee, an FRSO affiliate. In essence, LeftRoots is an adjunct to the FRSO with a little bit of DSA input.

 

LeftRoots has about 500 members with branches in Miami, Philadelphia, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Boston, and New York.

 

Left Inside/Outside Project

 

All of the above groups work together in the Left Inside/Outside Project, which was established in early 2017 to coordinate infiltration and eventual takeover of the Democratic Party.

 

Many of these groups receive significant funding from the Ford Foundation, Open Societies Foundations, Tides Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, and similar groups. Taxpayer funding additionally is often given to the front groups of socialist organizations in the form of grants and tax-exempt status. Unions often prop up front groups financially, and with logistics and training as well.

Charlottesville Violent Participants Pt TWO


By John R. Houk

© August 17, 2017

 

On Wednesday 8/16/17, I posted Part ONE which I took a look at the racist participants of the Charlottesville rumble of Neo-Nazis, KKK and White Supremacist Nationalists spewing their odious ideology using the excuse of preserve the American history embodied by the Confederacy.

 

Clearly these White Supremacist racists were more interested in odious propaganda than in preserving history. Check out the racist sloganeering a couple of days before the Charlottesville VA rumble at nearby University of Virginia:

 

VIDEO: 8/12/17 White NEO-NAZI March at University of Virginia Chanting Nazi Slogans

A group of white nationalists sparked outrage on a college campus in Virginia on Friday after the marched with torches across campus while chanting Nazi expressions.

The demonstrators marched on the campus grounds at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville late Friday as precursor to a Saturday protest planned to publicly oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Marches could be heard chanting slogans including “white lives matter” and “you will not replace us.” Others could be heard chanting “blood and soil,” a well-known Nazi rallying cry. Police eventually declared the protest an unlawful assembly and both protesters and counter protesters reported being pepper sprayed.

Some videos captured at the scene appeared to show counter protesters clashing with the white nationalists.

University of Virginia president Teresa A. Sullivan condemned the READ THE REST

 

Ergo, the racist march at U of V seems like incitement practice in Charlottesville.

 

AND YET, the Left-Wing Counter-Protesters were at best infiltrated by violent Antifa/Black Lives Matter rumblers or at worst were the leaders of the rumbling Left.

 

In any case Leftist rumblers came just as armed as the racist White Supremacists. So, let’s look at Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM).

 

Antifa

 

VIDEO: Antifa Exposed – Newly Press

 

Posted by John Houk

Published on Aug 17, 2017

 

I found this exposé of Antifa on the Facebook page called “Newly Press”. (http://tinyurl.com/y754ycpp)

 

The undercover narrator is Joey Salads (sounds like it could be a pseudonym). With the one-sided reporting on the Charlottesville Rumble just looking at racist White Supremacists, it is good to remember that Communist anarchists were engaging in violence as well.

 

Racism is evil! BUT Communism is evil too!

 

From the New American:

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Police across the United States are being forced to deal with a new hard-Left, communist-derived movement organized under the code word “Antifa,” standing for “Anti-Fascist.”

 

The violent, confrontational nature of Antifa anarchists presents a challenge to U.S. law enforcement that is unprecedented; they reject the free speech principles upon which civil discourse depends, while seeking to achieve the demise of the U.S. Constitution, as it holds as illegitimate any compromise with their communist worldview.

 

The Antifa movement roots in Weimar Republic Germany

 

While the Antifa movement is anarchic in nature, it owes its birth to the Communist Party’s opposition to the Nazi fascist movement in post-World War I Germany.

 

1930s fascism is best explained by Jonah Goldberg. In his 2008 book Liberal Fascism, he points out that fascism is a phenomenon of the political Left, in that communists and fascists were “closely related, historical competitors for the same constituents.” In a key paragraph applying these principles to American fascism, Goldberg wrote:

 

Much like the Nazi movement, liberal fascism had two faces: the street radicals and the establishment radicals. In Germany, the two groups worked in tandem to weaken middle-class resistance to the Nazis’ agenda. In the previous chapter we saw how the liberal fascists of the SDS and the Black Panther movements rose up to terrorize the American middle class. In the remainder of this chapter — and the next — we will explain how the “suit-and-tie radicals” of the 1960s, people like Hillary Clinton and her friends, use this terror to expand the power and scope of the state and above all to change the public attitude toward the state as the agent of social progress and universal caring and compassion.

The Antifa movement in the U.S. is a return to the communist paramilitary riot tactics developed to fight the Brownshirts of the Weimar Republic. The goal was to terrorize middle-class Germans into rejecting the Nazis who had embraced the social-welfare programs of prior regimes.

 

 

In what was branded as a “DisruptJ20” protest, some 1,000 Antifa thugs broke windows at Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Bank of America, as well as in commercial buildings in downtown Washington. Antifa rioters flooded streets, blocked traffic, burned trash in the streets, and broke windshields of passing cars. They threatened to attack inauguration attendees on the streets, while shouting a continuous flow of angry, vulgar, and confrontational in-your-face insults.

 

 

The militant or radical Left as described by Lennard has little — if anything — in common with the traditional liberal politics of Democrats such as John F. Kennedy and Hubert H. Humphrey in the 1960s. She [i.e. Natasha Lennard] continued:

 

As organizers from anti-fascist research and news site Antifa NYC told The Nation: “Antifa combines radical left-wing and anarchist politics, revulsion at racists, sexists, homophobes, anti-Semites, and Islamophobes, with the international anti-fascist culture of taking to the streets and physically confronting the brownshirts of white supremacy, whoever they may be.” As with fascisms, not all anti-fascisms are the same, but the essential feature is that anti-fascism does not tolerate fascism; it would give it no platform for debate.

 

 

Lennard made it clear that Antifa radicals are READ ENTIRETY (How the Violent Hard-Left “Antifa” Movement Copies Communists in Weimar Republic Germany; By Jerome R. Corsi; New American; 8/15/17)

 

Ben Shapiro on Antifa:

 

… Antifa is a loosely connected band of anti-capitalist protesters generally on the far left who dub themselves “anti-fascist” after their compatriots in Europe. They’ve been around in the United States since the 1990s, protesting globalization and burning trash cans at World Trade Organization meetings. But they’ve kicked into high gear over the past two years: They engaged in vandalism in violence, forcing the cancelation of a speech by alt-right popularizer Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California, Berkeley; a few months later, they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Berkeley; they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Sacramento, California, leading to a bloody street fight; they threw projectiles at police during President Trump’s inauguration; they attacked pro-Trump free-speech demonstrators in Seattle last weekend. They always label their opponents “fascists” in order to justify their violence.

 

In Charlottesville, Antifa engaged in street violence with the alt-right racists. As in Weimar, Germany, fascists flying the swastika engaged in hand-to-hand combat with Antifa members flying the communist red. And yet, the media declared that any negative coverage granted to Antifa would detract from the obvious evils of the alt-right. Sheryl Gay Stolberg of The New York Times tweeted in the midst of the violence, “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.” After receiving blowback from the left, Stolberg then corrected herself. She said: “Rethinking this. Should have said violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to hate.”

 

Or perhaps Antifa is a hateful group itself. But that wouldn’t fit the convenient narrative Antifa promotes and the media buy: that the sole threat to the republic comes from the racist right. Perhaps that’s why the media ignored the events in Sacramento and Berkeley and Seattle — to point out the evils of Antifa might detract from the evils of the alt-right.

 

 

Here’s the moral solution, as always: Condemn violence and evil wherever it occurs. The racist philosophy of the alt-right is evil. The violence of the alt-right is evil. The communist philosophy of Antifa is evil. So is the violence of Antifa. If we are to survive as a republic, we must call out Nazis but not punch them; we must stop providing cover to anarchists and communists who seek to hide behind self-proclaimed righteousness to participate in violence. Otherwise, we won’t be an honest or a free society. READ ENTIRETY (The Group That Got Ignored in Charlottesville; By Ben Shapiro; Creators.com; 8/16/17)

 

CSC Media Group looks a bit closer at Antifa ideology:

 

 

“Anti-fascism” became the official ideology of Stalinist parties, although anarchists, and migrant activists have also continued to identify as anti-fascists. The movement would continue through the end of World War II and right on through the Cold War.

 

The Resurgence

 

It would have an almost rebirth, or resurgence in the 1990s after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Once again the communists would fight against what they saw as right-wing fascist groups. Keep in mind, although these groups were fighting fascism, it wasn’t fighting fascism for freedom. Rather they wanted to replace it with communism.

 

 

The End Game

 

Now, the communist and the anarchists don’t have the same goals, other than fighting the powers that hold them back. They’ve decided that they will fight one enemy at a time. When that one is defeated they will fight the other ones standing next to them. They will continue to fight until only one is left standing.

 

 

… One of these groups is known as “Bamn” “By any means necessary.” One of their leaders is a school teacher in California. This is possibly why so many of the protests have been concentrated along the west coast.

 

 

… There are slogans like “antifascism means attack” not only against neonazis but also against the civil and capitalist system.

 

READ ENTIRETY (“Antifa” Anti-Fascists With Pro-Communist Roots; By Dominick Luckette; CSC Media Group; 4/28/17)

 

Here are two articles worth looking at to understand the evil and un-American the Antifa Communists are to Liberty and Freedom:

 

 

 

Black Lives Matter (BLM)

From Accuracy in Media:

 

The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. Its agitation has provoked police killings and other violence, lawlessness and unrest in minority communities throughout the U.S. If allowed to continue, that agitation could devolve into anarchy and civil war. The BLM crowd appears to be spoiling for just such an outcome.

 

 

Leftist Origins

 

Exploiting blacks to promote Marxist revolution is an old tactic. … Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn regarded Barack Obama, whose political career they sponsored, as a tool—a puppet—to use against white America. Obama’s legacy at home will certainly include more racial division.

 

[BLM Founder Photo not a part of AIM article]

 

Garza, Cullors and Tometi all work for front groups of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), one of the four largest radical Left organizations in the country. The others are the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS). Nelini Stamp’s ACORN—now rebranded under a variety of different names—works with all four organizations, and Dream Defenders is backed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center and others.

 

FRSO is a hereditary descendant of the New Communist Movement, which was inspired by Mao and the many communist revolutions throughout the world in the 1960s and 1970s. FRSO split into two separate groups in 1999, FRSO/Fight Back and FRSO/OSCL (Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Organizaci?n Socialista del Camino para la Libertad). Black Lives Matter and its founders are allied with the latter group. Future references to FRSO in this article refer to FRSO/OSCL.

 

 

BLM is one of many projects undertaken by the FRSO. Except for the website, blacklivesmatter.com, there is no actual organization. The website implicitly acknowledges this, describing #BlackLivesMatter as “an online forum intended to build connections between Black people and our allies to fight anti-Black racism, to spark dialogue among Black people, and to facilitate the types of connections necessary to encourage social action and engagement.”

 

FRSO membership is disproportionately represented by blacks, gays and women, and self-consciously emphasizes those issues. Garza, who penned a “Herstory” of BLM, is a “queer,” black veteran activist involved in …

 

 

Cullors describes herself as a “working class, queer, black woman.” …

 

Cullors was trained by Eric Mann, a former Weather Underground leader who exhorts followers to become “anti-racist, anti-imperialist” activists. Mann runs another FRSO front, the Labor/Community Strategy Center. Like most professional leftists, he makes good money—over $225,000 annually—living in “the system” he advocates destroying.

 

Tometi is the daughter of illegal aliens from Nigeria. While in college, she worked for the ACLU defending illegal aliens against “vigilantes” opposed to illegal immigration. She is currently the executive director of Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI).

 

 

Mainstream funders have helped fund BLM as well. For example, United Way has partnered with A&E and iHeartMedia to create Shining the Light Advisors, a committee of “nationally known experts and leaders in racial and social justice,” to oversee grant disbursements. These “advisors” include such radicals as Van Jones, Advancement Project co-director Judith Browne Dianis, and Rinku Sen, president of the Applied Research Center (ARC).

 

 

Its wide network of affiliates and partner organizations like CPUSA and ACORN allows BLM to turn out large crowds. Many participate simply to protest, commit violence, loot or all three.

 

 

Fithian echoes Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven—creators of the infamous Cloward/Piven Crisis Strategy—who spent decades attempting to provoke ghetto blacks to riot, because “Poor people can advance only when ‘the rest of society is afraid of them.’” …

 

 

Islamist organizations have also jumped on the BLM bandwagon, reminding us of the unholy alliance that exists –

between them and the radical Left. In September 2015, the Muslim Brotherhood front-group Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) joined BLM activists in storming California Governor Jerry Brown’s office. CAIR also participated in the Ferguson protests. Meanwhile ISIS is recruiting American blacks for its cause. 

 

Intellectual Genealogy of Black Lives Matter

 

We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth… We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”—Vladimir Lenin

 

That quote from the Soviet Union’s first leader captures the entire essence of the Left’s strategy. No matter what the issue, no matter what the facts, the Left advances a relentless, hate-filled narrative that America is irredeemably evil and must be destroyed as soon as possible. The BLM movement is only the latest but perhaps most dangerous variant on this divisive theme.

 

 

Obama’s favorite Harvard professor Derrick Bell devised Critical Race Theory, which exemplifies Lenin’s strategy as applied to race. According to Discover the Networks:

 

“Critical race theory contends that America is permanently racist to its core, and that consequently the nation’s legal structures are, by definition, racist and invalid … members of “oppressed” racial groups are entitled—in fact obligated—to determine for themselves which laws and traditions have merit and are worth observing…”

 

Bell’s theory is in turn an innovation of Critical Theory—developed by philosophers of the communist Frankfurt School. …

 

 

The “White Skin Privilege” idea was created in 1967 by Noel Ignatiev, an acolyte of Bell and professor at Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute (Du Bois was a Communist black leader who helped found the NAACP). Ignatiev was a member of CPUSA’s most radical wing, the Maoist/Stalinist Provisional Organizing Committee to Reconstitute the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (POC). POC was the intellectual forerunner to FRSO.

 

 

But do not be confused; “White” does not mean white. “White” in radical construction means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government and American traditional culture and values. By definition, these beliefs are irredeemably evil and anyone who aligns with them is “white” in spirit and thus equally guilty of “white crimes.” Ignatiev still teaches, now at the Massachusetts College of Art.

 

The Black Lives Matter movement carries this narrative to unprecedented heights, claiming that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers” and leftist Democrats, intent on making blacks into cannon fodder for the revolution.

When President Trump in a news conference had essentially what next lauding American history will be taken down:

 

Trump said that “this week… it’s Robert E. Lee. And, I heard Stonewall Jackson is coming down.”

 

“Is George Washington [coming down] next week. And, is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?” Trump said, noting both American icons were slaveholders in Virginia. (‘Is It George Washington Next Week?’: Trump Blasts Monument Removals as ‘Changing History’; Fox News; 8/15/17 4:58pm)

 

The New Zeal blog reports American historical monuments that had nothing to do with the Confederacy are being defaced:

 

Well, that didn’t take long. I predicted when all of this racist crap started that the lefty communists would move quickly from confederate statues onto other targets and here we go. The Lincoln Memorial was defaced yesterday with the ‘F’ word and other graffiti. Then, so-called Social Justice Warriors set their sights on the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Hundreds demanded that a “racist” statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt be taken down. I strongly suggest they don’t do that. And the communists and radicals won’t stop there… they have a huge list of targets across the nation, including anything to do with the Founding Fathers.

One of the BLM founders – Alicia Garza – is paraphrased as stipulating at Mizzou U on 2/18/16:

 

“The goal of the Constitution was to make an agreement between factions known as states, which were built on the backs of black slaves.” She described constitutionalism as racist, saying: “The people vowing to protect the Constitution are vowing to protect white supremacy and genocide.” (The Real Agenda Behind Black Lives Matter; By  GERALD FLURRY; The Trumpet; 5/2016)

 

The influence of Marxists Cloward and Piven on Black Lives Matter:

 

In 1966, sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven called for the overloading of the U.S. welfare system to force the potential collapse of our Democratic Republic government and end poverty by the government “guaranteeing an annual income for all Americans.”  This is Communism–a godless human government where the state is the ultimate entity to be worshiped and obeyed.

 

Fifty years later, are we seeing Cloward and Piven’s dream become reality?  Our nation is being divided and overwhelmed economically and socially, and some feel we are on the brink of becoming a Marxist state.

 

Cloward-Piven believed in forcing political change through orchestrated crisis and not surprisingly, they were both members of the Democratic Socialists of America. The two were also involved in the birthing of radical organizations such as ACORN, which has branched out into several organizations including some in support of Black Lives Matter, according to journalist, James Simpson.

 

 

This report examines in detail, for the first time, how communist groups have manipulated the cause of Black Lives Matter, and how money from liberal foundations has made it all possible.

 

 

…The radical Left model is based on alliances of many organizations that are working on separate issues but dedicated ultimately to the same thing: overthrowing our society in order to replace it with a hardcore socialist (read communist) one.

 

The goal is to present the appearance of a formidable mass of organizations. Some are large, but many are little more than a website or Facebook page. When necessary, they can all come together to promote the cause du jour. The deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and others were mere pretexts for socialist agitation. The real enemy is “the system.” This is why the BLM crowd denies the facts of those cases. As Stamp has said, “we are actually trying to change the capitalist system we have today because it’s not working for any of us.”

Here is an interesting insight from a blogger that has been inactive since April 2017:

 

[I]t isn’t surprising that Black Lives Matter is a communist organization—but the type of communism they subscribe to is. They are conservative communists attempting to fold the progressive movement back into traditional Marxism.

 

… BLM is rebirthing the traditional class struggle, reframing it in terms of black and white.

 

The policy platform proposed by BLM in August did nothing to hide this traditionalism. Its calls for collective ownership of resources, banks, and businesses, a highly progressive income tax, a guaranteed minimum income, and government jobs are lifted straight from the pages of Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.” Here are two excerpts for comparison:

 

“Communist Manifesto”: Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

 

 

Black vs. White Is the New Proletariat vs. Bourgeoisie

 

But more important is BLM’s use of the black versus white dichotomy. While race has a long history as a wedge issue, BLM incorporates nearly all forms of modern marginalization—“including but not limited to those who are women, queer, trans, femmes, gender nonconforming, Muslim, formerly and currently incarcerated, cash poor and working class, differently-abled, undocumented, and immigrant”—into blackness. Conversely, whiteness represents all forms of privilege (economic, social, and legal) throughout the platform.

 

BLM has simply substituted Marx’s class conflict between the proletariat and bourgeoisie for class conflict between blackness and whiteness. …

 

The black vs. white dichotomy creates a permanent enemy class, to which defection is always incomplete. And unlike the proletariat class consciousness, race consciousness already exists, making mobilization easier. …

 

Why Black Lives Matter Rejects Intersectionality

 

Where Marxism prioritizes the class struggle between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat (or between black and white), the modern theory of intersectionality prioritizes differences between identity politic groups. It posits that while white women face marginalization for their sex, they gain privilege from their race. Conversely, black men gain privilege from their sex while facing marginalization because of their race. Black women experience “double jeopardy,” suffering from both sex and race. This creates a hierarchy of oppression that is in constant flux as new forms of marginalization are recognized. Intersectional theory fractures the class conflict from two opposed groups into an unlimited number of conflicts within the hierarchy of oppression.

 

 

BLM treats intersectional conflicts and “non-black people of color” much the same way Marx treated the reserve army of labor and petty bourgeoisie: as auxiliaries to the proletariat and bourgeoisie conflict. In their glossary, BLM defines the term “non-black people of color” as intended “to provide greater context to the distinct and unique oppression imposed on Black people, while recognizing the struggles of other people of color.” Which is to say that while intersectional conflicts exist, the Black vs. White conflict takes priority.

Currently Antifa Communists and BLM Communists seem to have linked their agendas together fomenting violent revolution through race baiting. I have to wonder if the Obama Administration clandestinely empowered these anarchist revolutionaries. Many Conservatives have used this moniker for Barack Hussein Obama: Race-Baiter-in-Chief.

 

I also have to wonder if Obama’s Organizing for Action Deep State group (See Also HERE) has some clandestine linkage to BLM or even Antifa for that matter.

 

It is clear the American Left pulling out all the unConstitutional stops to destroy the Liberty and Freedom our Founding Fathers enabled during and after the Revolutionary War to form the greatest Republic the world has seen. If the Left has its way – Antifa and BLM are Marxist tools – the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution will be ripped up and placed on the forgotten ash heap of history.
