Cultural Marxism:  This is essentially the battle plan of the regressives. 

When people “wake up,” or are questioning the differences between what they see, and what they have been taught, they frequently ask, “How did this happen?”

People see others being rewarded for failure, or penalized for success.  Politicians lie, and lie egregiously.  People that tell the truth are vilified.  Professors and public school teachers consistently and persistently teach against our nation and heritage, and penalize those who do not “go along.”  Too many of our citizens believe that it is appropriate to confiscate the wealth of another to subsidize their own failed lifestyles.  Our president apologizes for our nation’s defending freedom, and others blame us for terrorist attacks that take the lives of thousands of innocent people.  Our children are not educated-they are indoctrinated.  Our children are over sexualized, by their schools, by their peers, and by the entertainment industry.  They know little of our nation and government, but they know how to put a condom on a banana.  The list could go on and on.  One thing is clear, our nation has changed, and it continues on a frightening course.

To describe what has happened to our nation, and more importantly, our culture, we have to look at the architects of that change.  The fact is that our culture has been targeted for decades, and most Americans are completely unaware of the nature of this attack.  It has been incremental, and has impacted all of our institutions.  To examine all of this, I will be quoting “The Culture-wise Family: Upholding Christian Values in a Mass Media World.”

First, we have to look at the term “Cultural Marxism.”

Before World War I, Marxist theory said that if Europe ever erupted in war, the working classes in every European country would rise in revolt, overthrow their governments and create a new Communist Europe. But when war broke out in the summer of 1914, that didn’t happen. Instead, the workers in every European country lined up by the millions to fight their country’s enemies. Finally, in 1917, a Communist revolution did occur, in Russia. But attempts to spread that revolution to other countries failed because the workers did not support it.

After World War I ended in 1918, Marxist theorists had to ask themselves the question: What went wrong? As good Marxists, they could not admit Marxist theory had been incorrect. Instead, two leading Marxist intellectuals, Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Georg Lukacs in Hungary (Lukacs was considered the most brilliant Marxist thinker since Marx himself) independently came up with the same answer. They said that Western culture and the Christian religion had so blinded the working class to its true, Marxist class interests, that a Communist revolution was impossible in the West, until both could be destroyed. That objective, established as cultural Marxism’s goal right at the beginning, has never changed.

Now, the meaning of the term “Western Culture” is not made explicit here.  To elaborate, here is a definition:

Western culture is a body of knowledge derived from reason.

This foundation of reason has made possible a vast accumulation of understanding related to reality or nature, including human nature.

This understanding is represented in several core ideals and values, which include individualism, happiness, rights, capitalism, science and technology.

Western culture can also be referred to as advanced culture; this is because its ideas and values promote the development and sustainment of advanced civilization.

So, when offered Communism, the workers rejected it.  Western Culture interfered.  The ideas of individuality, self reliance, success, work, owning property, the ability to rise above one’s origins, all give hope to the people, especially when the people can act upon and achieve these hopes.   The ability to earn, and keep what you earn; all lead to resistance to Communism.  After all, why would you give up the ability to earn and be successful to join a de-humanizing collective?

Christianity has another powerful role on resistance to Marxism.  Marxism is “Godless,” by it’s own description, however, I have often postulated that this is an incorrect.  I believe that in a Marxist state, God is replaced by the state as the giver of life and all things material.  Religion, and its reliance on a higher power creates a situation in which loyalty to the state is secondary to the loyalty to God.  This is intolerable to the Marxist.

Gramsci famously laid out a strategy for destroying Christianity and Western culture, one that has proven all too successful. Instead of calling for a Communist revolution up front, as in Russia, he said Marxists in the West should take political power last, after a “long march through the institutions” – the schools, the media, even the churches, every institution that could influence the culture. That “long march through the institutions” is what America has experienced, especially since the 1960s. Fortunately, Mussolini recognized the danger Gramsci posed and jailed him. His influence remained small until the 1960s, when his works, especially the “Prison Notebooks,” were rediscovered.

Georg Lukacs proved more influential. In 1918, he became deputy commissar for culture in the short-lived Bela Kun Bolshevik regime in Hungary. There, asking, “Who will save us from Western civilization?” he instituted what he called “cultural terrorism.” One of its main components was introducing sex education into Hungarian schools. Lukacs realized that if he could destroy the country’s traditional sexual morals, he would have taken a giant step toward destroying its traditional culture and Christian faith.

Please realize that Mussolini was not a good guy.  The fascists, particularly Hitler, viewed Marxism as a related, but inferior system to fascism.  Mussolini was simply imprisoning another political opponent, one from a related, but competing ideology.

I think it’s easy to see that the long march through the institutions has been largely completed, and the steps to taking political power are well underway.  They have education, law, media, and many other related fields.  Considering that they want to do away with alternative media, ban home schooling, and use law to accomplish both, the intent becomes clear.

Also, what conclusions can we make regarding the sexual revolution?  Is it about “liberating people,” or was it just about getting people away from religion?  After all, most religions teach sexual restraint.  This is taught in the home and at church.  However, if the media, and later the schools, teach the opposite, and literally encourage sexual experimentation, a disconnect with the religious instruction and belief is created.  This worked incredibly well in Communist states.

Here’s another quote that shows that perhaps I’m on the right track…

P. Blanchard, in ‘The Humanist” 1983, continues: “I think that the most important factor moving us toward a secular society has been the educational factor. Our schools may not teach Johnny how to read properly, but the fact that Johnny is in school until he is 16 tends toward the elimination of religious superstition. The average American child now acquires a high school education, and this militates against Adam and Eve and all other myths of alleged history.”

As time wore on, these men formed what was to be called the Institute for Marxism.  Realizing that people would be alarmed by that name, they instead called it the “Institute for Social Research.”  Colloquially, it was referred to as the “Frankfort School.”  I guess that this is the first example of “CALLING IT SOMETHING ELSE?”

With the help of this new blood, Horkheimer made three major advances in the development of cultural Marxism. First, he broke with Marx’s view that culture was merely part of society’s “superstructure,” which was determined by economic factors. He said that on the contrary, culture was an independent and very important factor in shaping a society.

Second, again contrary to Marx, he announced that in the future, the working class would not be the agent of revolution. He left open the question of who would play that role – a question Marcuse answered in the 1950s.

Today, when Hollywood’s cultural Marxists want to “normalize” something like homosexuality (thus “liberating” us from “repression”), they put on television show after television show where the only normal-seeming white male is a homosexual. That is how psychological conditioning works; people absorb the lessons the cultural Marxists want them to learn without even knowing they are being taught.

Brainwashing, pure and simple.  Denigrate the culture, and make this denigration appear everywhere.  Schools, media, even some churches, all promote Cultural Marxism.  The sad thing is-they don’t even know they’re doing it!  Of course, we know, because they said what they were going to do, and it’s being done!

To serve its purpose of “negating” Western culture, the Frankfurt School developed a powerful tool it called “Critical Theory.” What was the theory? The theory was to criticize. By subjecting every traditional institution, starting with family, to endless, unremitting criticism (the Frankfurt School was careful never to define what it was for, only what it was against), it hoped to bring them down. Critical Theory is the basis for the “studies” departments that now inhabit American colleges and universities. Not surprisingly, those departments are the home turf of academic political correctness.

Studies in prejudice

The Frankfurt School sought to define traditional attitudes on every issue as “prejudice” in a series of academic studies that culminated in Adorno’s immensely influential book, “The Authoritarian Personality,” published in 1950. They invented a bogus “F-scale” that purported to tie traditional beliefs on sexual morals, relations between men and women and questions touching on the family to support for fascism. Today, the favorite term the politically correct use for anyone who disagrees with them is “fascist.”

This is one of the big lies of the left.  Anyone who believes in freedom is a “fascist.”  Anyone who believes in doing what the Marxists or Fascists actually did, are progressives!   This doesn’t actually present a way of thinking and doing that might be better, it’s about silencing and discrediting dissent.  If you can discredit a person, than you discredit their ideas.  The progressives have to avoid discussing ideas, especially when the ideas are superior to what they are trying to do.

The Frankfurt School again departed from orthodox Marxism, which argued that all of history was determined by who owned the means of production. Instead, they said history was determined by which groups, defined as men, women, races, religions, etc., had power or “dominance” over other groups. Certain groups, especially white males, were labeled “oppressors,” while other groups were defined as “victims.” Victims were automatically good, oppressors bad, just by what group they came from, regardless of individual behavior.

I remember having a discussion with a group of people that claimed that I have had some level of success in my life due to “white privilege.”  Now, this claim intends to do a few things:

  1. It attempts to negate the influence the actual effort and work.  This is a part of Western Culture.  I actually made a great effort to get educated, and then I worked hard at my career.  However, this is contrary to Marxism, so it must be discredited by claiming that anything I have came about because of my race.  Frankly, I don’t particularly like my efforts being discredited.
  2. The ability to succeed gives hope to others.  To keep their victim classes on the “plantation,” the progressives must convince the “victims” that they are kept at a low level due to others having this “privilege.”   Victim classes can only be kept victims if they are thoroughly convinced that they cannot succeed.  What better way to do that than to convince them that successful people are only successful because of “special advantages?”  They also claim that any minorities that achieve success have “sold out.”  Remember Clarence Thomas’s confirmation?
  3. Many people are prompted to feel guilt when they are brought to the understanding of their “privilege.”  Don’t laugh!  I’ve literally heard people say this!  After all, if you are feeling guilty about having things because the culture is so totally in your favor, you might not feel very bad about giving up some things to make it all right, like, for example, your freedom?

In the end, I didn’t cave in to the Marxism, so I was accused of being a racist.  In typical progressive fashion, I had to be discredited.  Facts were irrelevant, and what I said had to be discounted.  The smear is the last defense of the progressives.

Though Marxists, the members of the Frankfurt School also drew from Nietzsche (someone else they admired for his defiance of traditional morals was the Marquis de Sade). They incorporated into their cultural Marxism what Nietzsche called the “transvaluation of all values.” What that means, in plain English, is that all the old sins become virtues, and all the old virtues become sins. Homosexuality is a fine and good thing, but anyone who thinks men and women should have different social roles is an evil “fascist.” That is what political correctness now teaches children in public schools all across America. (The Frankfurt School wrote about American public education. It said it did not matter if school children learned any skills or any facts. All that mattered was that they graduate from the schools with the right “attitudes” on certain questions.)

Well, it had to bring us to education eventually.  This is what we have been talking about for years now.  Scores are down, graduation rates are down, and illiteracy is up.  But this is acceptable, as most of the children reject God, and embrace Marxist teachings!

Marcuse also widened the Frankfurt School’s intellectual work. In the early 1930s, Horkheimer had left open the question of who would replace the working class as the agent of Marxist revolution. In the 1950s, Marcuse answered the question, saying it would be a coalition of students, blacks, feminist women and homosexuals – the core of the student rebellion of the 1960s, and the sacred “victims groups” of political correctness today. Marcuse further took one of political correctness’s favorite words, “tolerance,” and gave it a new meaning. He defined “liberating tolerance” as tolerance for all ideas and movements coming from the left, and intolerance for all ideas and movements coming from the right. When you hear the cultural Marxists today call for “tolerance,” they mean Marcuse’s “liberating tolerance” (just as when they call for “diversity,” they mean uniformity of belief in their ideology).

The student rebellion of the 1960s, driven largely by opposition to the draft for the Vietnam War, gave Marcuse a historic opportunity. As perhaps its most famous “guru,” he injected the Frankfurt School’s cultural Marxism into the baby boom generation. Of course, they did not understand what it really was. As was true from the Institute’s beginning, Marcuse and the few other people “in the know” did not advertise that political correctness and multi-culturalism were a form of Marxism. But the effect was devastating: a whole generation of Americans, especially the university-educated elite, absorbed cultural Marxism as their own, accepting a poisonous ideology that sought to destroy America’s traditional culture and Christian faith. That generation, which runs every elite institution in America, now wages a ceaseless war on all traditional beliefs and institutions. They have largely won that war. Most of America’s traditional culture lies in ruins.

So, when we are referred to as racists for questioning Obama’s policies, we know why.  When there is no outrage when Van Jones is an avowed Communist, we see through the ignorance.  When an untold number of protesters swarm Washington DC, and the MSM minimizes it, we see the cause.  When our children are indoctrinated, we see the purpose.

They infiltrated the institutions, just as they said they would.  They have since trained/indoctrinated generations of people.  Think for a moment… why are so many in the MSM are ignoring Obama’s lies, his czars, and the ACORN story?  They were indoctrinated!  They went to the universities!  The Cultural Marxists occupied them first! Why are so many public school teachers towing the line?  Same thing!  They went to the universities!  The list is virtually endless.  They have turned education into a leftist indoctrination machine, allowing them to then infiltrate every other institution in our nation.

This ties together with other topics that we have discussed.  For example, the Alinsky Method seems to be nothing more than a playbook for Critical Theory and tolerant repression.  It is a method to achieve the end.  The media’s ignorance and lies serve as well.  All of the indoctrinated institutions seem to act in the same way to work towards the goals, and circles the wagons for defense.

Where does this leave us?  We are in a precarious situation.  Our institutions are in the possession of people that would fundamentally change our republic.  The vast majority of them have no clue that they are working towards Marxist goals.  That is the evil brilliance of cultural Marxism.  The minions work towards the end goal, one of which they unaware.  But, we are aware, and that is a start.

For more, here is a video from the author of the book I quoted for much of this post.

The Saga of Sarah Alcid, Your Intellectual Better & Committed Useful Idiot

Share

It certainly is true what is what is said about R.S. McCain-he attracts a higher grade of troll.  And over the last couple days, he attracted one Sarah Alcid, a queer feminist Marxist who took offense offense at R.S. McCain’s coverage of the DC slut walk. 

It isn’t every day that a “Queer Feminist” with a diploma from Bryn Mawr (undergraduate tuition $42,870 a year) decides she needs my attention, but I’m so grateful for Miss Alcid’s encouragement to expand on what I said this morning:

“Professor Aptheker is exactly right: If you want to be a
true feminist, you must be a Communist lesbian.”

The inherent radicalism of the women’s movement — its theoretical foundation in Marxism, its implacable antagonism to traditional marriage and other institutions of bourgeois society — is not generally understood outside such campus cauldrons as Bryn Mawr.

Feminism is a totalitarian ideology. It cannot be co-opted or moderated. You cannot negotiate or compromise with feminism, because the ambitions of feminism are without limit. They can accept nothing short of the complete overthrow of “hitherto existing society” (Marx and Engels) resulting in their own dictatorial authority. Halfway “reform” (to which the bourgeoisie may agree in its attempt to stave off this upheaval) can ever placate the revolutionary, because the radical does not seek reform, but rather destruction. And the problem that most conservatives have, in trying to cope with radical movements, is that the typical conservative cannot imagine how fanatical — how rigidly unreasonable, how full of passionate destructive hatefulness — the radical really is.

So, it is quite true that feminism has it’s basis in Marxism, and I’ll get to that in a moment. But, I want to make a point regarding the difference between Conservatives and regressives.  Conservatives tolerate the existence of liberals. We disagree with them, and vehemently resist their efforts to destroy our society, but they are allowed to spout their vitriol.  It’s their right.    But, their rights end when they try to indoctrinate children into vile ideologies and ban any expression or mere utterance that shows dissent from their opinion.  You see, they cannot tolerate dissent, because truth hits their points like a death ray.  We don’t have to “convert” everyone, but regressives like Sarah Alcid have to crush and dominate all resistance.   Simply put, they don’t play well with others.

Sara Alcid wants to smash your family, smash your faith, smash your community. This is what she means in denouncing “heteronormativity and gender roles” and “systems of domination.”

Sara Alcid hates you, she hates every institution you cherish and respect, and she considers your love for these institutions to be hate.

Sara Alcid believes this because she has been taught this. The fact that you cannot afford $42,870 a year to learn to think like Sara Alcid thinks is further proof of your inferiority, and your inferiority in turn justifies Sara Alcid‘s fanatical determination to destroy everything you love — in the name of “liberation,” of course.

In these terms, Sarah Alcid is performing her assigned function.  To destroy the US, Cultural Marxists mustt destroy the underpinnings of our society.  If you recall, Cultural Marxism is the response to Marxism’s failure to destroy Europe during WWI.  The Marxists all over the world expected the peoples of Europe to rise and shake off the shackles if capitalism, and join them in a massive Red Terror bloodbath.  When that failed, they determined that the culture, God, marriage, family, self sufficiency, nationalism, and the like prevented their long awaited win.  So, they translated Marxism into cultural terms in order to attack the underpinnings of Western Culture.  Basically, they make good evil, and evil good.  We’re obviously seeing that more and more these days, and Sarah Alcid doesn’t want to be left out of the fray.

But, she wasn’t done with R.S. McCain. 

Sara Alcid is better than you, because she’s a Queer Feminist who attended a prestigious college, and you’re not. She is so much better than you that you can’t even comprehend her vast superiority, her erudition, her knowledge of advanced philosophies that only the most sophisticated minds can ever hope to understand. You are just an ignorant, inarticulate, hate-filled bigot — a typical American — and you are so insignificant that Sara Alcid can’t be bothered to notice.

Every day, Sarah Alcid and her Queer Feminist friends “work to critique and dismantle” those ”systems of domination” — religion, marriage, family, free enterprise — that the typical American loves. They claim to do this in the name of “equality,” but what they’re actually doing is demonstrating their own superiority, their authority to take away from you everything that you hold dear and thus to arrogate to themselves complete power over you.

Sarah Alcid deserves this authority. Sarah Alcid is entitled to this power.

You deserve nothing and you have no rights, and if you dare to speak back to Sarah Alcid, this just proves you’re a hater.

Narcissism, AKA unwarranted self importance is a common trait of leftists such as Sarah Alcid.   They are just sooo much smarter than the rabble in flyover country.  And these folks honestly see themselves as enlightened leaders of a bold new tomorrow of equality, social justice, and unicorns that fart rainbows.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

As you all know, I’m a big fan of the late Yuri Bezmonev, reputed to be the highest ranking KGB official to defect.  In the early 80’s, Mr. Bezmonev made several videos describing his work in India, which, mirrors Sarah Alcid’s stated intent here in the US.  His job was to work with Indian leftists in order to subvert their government, and set the stage for Communist takeover.   According to Mr. Bezmenov, Sarah Alcid is a useful idiot.  She is trained and “brainwashed,” if you will, to attack the framework of our society.  Her function is to…

Sara Alcid wants to smash your family, smash your faith, smash your community. This is what she means in denouncing “heteronormativity and gender roles” and “systems of domination.”

And if  queer feminist Marxists like Sarah Alcid can achieve their goals, society will  fall apart.  The ties that bind us all will be gone.  Children will be sociopaths, people will starve, economic activity will be conducted at the point of a gun,  anarchy would reign.  This is scenario desired by Marxists, as they would be the ones to come in and establish order.  They will be welcomed as saviors that will set all the old grudges right.  They will promise peace, food, and equality.  At least, they’ll call it that, though real justice and equality will be nowhere to be seen.  And ask any Ukrainian that survived the 1930’s about food.

However, once this point is reached, the useful idiots won’t be quite as useful anymore (unless the new Marxist overlords want to use them for the red terror).  No matter when, at some point, people like Sarah Alcid stop being useful.  Mr. Bezmonev informed us what happens then…

What people that Sarah Alcid don’t grasp is that they are pawns in a larger game.  They are little poison pills, or ticking time bombs set by an evil and discredited political ideology.  Her sole purpose is to destabilize our society.  She relishes this task, but hasn’t the foggiest notion as to why she is really doing it.  And, even worse for Sarah Alcid, winning means that while she might not be first to the wall, she’ll get there eventually.  She’s a tool, and a means to an end.  The saddest thing is that she’ll never realize it.

Earth Day 2013: Is it Just One Big Communist Plot?

Share

EarthDayLenin

In honor of Earth Day 2013 Lenin’s Birthday, here is a classic post from A Conservative Teacher.

Happy Lenin’s Birthday
Is it a coincidence that I’m wishing you this today? I don’t think so. Earth Day arrives on the exact same day as Lenin’s Birthday. One of the very first Earth day celebrations took place exactly on the 100 year anniversary of Comrade Lenin’s birthday. Many former communists saw Earth Day, with its goals and interests, as being very similar to the goals and interests of the great communist Lenin. Does this coincidence convince you that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

Friends of the Earth
The group that founded “Earth Day” was a group called Friends of the Earth. This group also promotes socialism- just as strongly as it does environmentalism. It advocates economic redistribution, government regulation of nearly all aspects of people’s lives, communal land ownership, control of production in the hands of the masses, etc. Its main bogeymen are: “evil” corporations (especially the Fortune 500 companies,) Big Oil, Wall Street, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization and (naturally) George Bush. Oh yeah- it also founded Earth Day too. It is not far-fetched to think that by promoting and celebrating Earth Day, perhaps some of the other aims of Friends of the Earth will be advanced. Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

Symbol of Earth Day
The symbol of the first Earth Day is a circle with a broken cross, with the bars pointing downward. It is a New Age symbol meaning the rejection of Christianity. The goal was to replace the worship of the Christian religion with the worship of Mother Earth. Communist ideology demand you worship the state and not a Christian god, and so communists frequently also attack the church. Earth Day then fits very nicely with the goals of communists. Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

Motives of Earth Day activists
According to wikipedia, the goal of Earth Day is to push for: Total state control of society, especially businesses and industry (to help the environment, I guess). Recognition of the sacred nature of Mother Earth, including an almost reverent worship of anything ‘green’ (to help the environment, I guess). Using force to change people’s behavior (to help the environment, I guess). Stopping or slowing ‘development’ or ‘progress’, to return to a Utopian world of equality (to help the environment, I guess). These goals are the goals of communists, are they not? Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

More Evidence: Earthday.net
Here are some of the goals, issues, and beliefs on www.earthday.net, one of the official websites promoting Earth Day: “Join the Revolution”! Pass laws that give more power to the government, in order to ‘stop global warming’. Stop building any new energy producing plants. “Protect the poor and middle class from unfairly bearing the cost of climate crisis” by increasing taxes on the rich and redistributing that money to the poor and middle class. Unite all religions in the name of global warming. Teach children in schools less about rights and more about the environment, and their responsibility to fight poverty. Still not convinced that Earth Day is a big communist plot? Need more evidence?

More Evidence: The Wilderness Society
For teachers, The Wilderness Society (an environmental group) has resources on how to teach about Earth Day. Here are some of them: A coloring book for 3rd graders with the theme of “Stop drilling in ANWR”. A timeline that 7th graders can construct of all the laws that government passed, to see the “progress” of government. Stories to read about ‘environmental heroes’- also (coincidentally) all good revolutionary communists

Bush’s Version of Earth Day
Under Republican President George Bush, the official government version of Earth Day was a bit different. According to the EPA website then, as declared by President Bush, Earth Day was more about: Celebrating the gains we have made in protecting the environment. Achieving meaningful results in protecting the environment. Encouraging volunteer efforts to save energy, reduce or recycle, and educate yourself to be more friendly to the environment. Taking pride in America by maintaining our public lands

Obama’s Version of Earth Day
Under Democrat President Barack Obama, the official government version of Earth Day though looks very much like Lenin’s birthday. According to the EPA website now, according to President Obama, Earth Day is about: Learning about environmental justice, which is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. Earth Day is about lobbying your local school to spend less time teaching reading and math and more time teaching environmental protection. Most importantly, Earth Day is about engaging in celebrations and festivals of worship on this most holy of days.

Earth Day: A Communist Plot
So, today when the news runs story after story about Earth Day, when teachers encourage you to ‘celebrate’ Earth Day, when google and yahoo ‘go green’, you can now respond back by saying-

“Happy Earth Day too, comrade”.

Earth Day 2013: In Search of the Missing Myth

Share

It’s Earth Day Hippie Burn Out/ Get High and Celebrate Marxism Day!  So, to commemorate it with the prerequisite amount of ridicule, here is the first of several classic CH 2.0 posts.  Enjoy!

Now friends, since the war on women has backfired, gun control was defeated, and the Boston Marathon Bombers were not white,  the messiah is creating more and more distractions from his economic failure.  But there is one thing that is conspicuous in its absence.  What the hell happened to global warming?  It’s taken a back seat during the campaign.  Since when is the apocalypse put on hold?   I am therefore declaring it missing, and would like your help in finding it.

According to Director Robert S. Mueller, III, FBI Director, Global Warming was reported missing several years ago, as the messiah took office.  According to Director Mueller;

Global Warming has been discussed and debated quite a bit over the last year, however, it hasn’t actually been seen since 2007.  No one that we have talked to has actually been in contact with Global Warming.  It is quite a mystery, but I want the American to rest assured that we will search diligently until Global Warming is located.  The messiah has charged me with this task, and we have our best people working on it.”

To supplement the forces of the messiah, I have enlisted the aid of our crack Conservative Hideout 2.0 Investigative Team.  Here are some of our findings:

  1. Arctic Ice expanded by 31% in 2008, and 5000km more in 2011.
  2. Temperatures were colder in 2008.
  3. Solar output is closely correlated to global temperature.
  4. The Polar Bears are not dying off.

To gauge the Democratic response to those findings, we consulted with Al Borg, author of “An Inconsistent Truth.”

Me:  Welcome Mr. Borg, I’d like your reaction to our findings.  What is your response to the fact that global temperatures are dropping, and the arctic sea ice is growing?

Borg:  WE ARE THE BORG.  YOUR CULTURE WILL ADAPT YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINTS TO SERVICE US.

Me:  I see.  Do you have a message for the American people?

Borg:  RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

Me: Ah heh…. Do you have any evidence to support your claims, especially in light of the correlation between solar activity and global temperature?

Borg:  RESISTANCE IS FUTILE; YOU WILL SUFFER WHILE MY MANSIONS ARE BRIGHTLY LIT.  I WILL LAUGH AS I FLY OVER YOUR FREEZING HOUSES IN MY PRIVATE JET.

Me:  Mmkay, Goodbye (Damn, why are all these democrats freaks?).

Next, I decided to talk to a burnt out hippie to get a better feel for the opposition.  After all, who best to know of Global Warming than a burnt out, unwashed hippie?

Dirty, Burnt Out HippieDirty, Burnt Out Hippie

Me:  Hi hippie scum, ‘sup?

Hippie:  DUUUUUDE!  How is the cosmos treatin you man?

Me:  Just fine, you burn out.  What do you think about Earth Day?

Hippie:  DUUUUUUDE!  I was at Earth Day Maaaaan!  The predictions are dire dude.

Me: How so?

Hippie:  Did you know DUDE… that civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind. Not only that dude, that by 1995, somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.

Me: Orly?

Hippie: Yeah DUDE!  It’s a bummer maaan.  But it gets worse.  Did you know that the world will be eleven degrees colder in the year 2000? This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age. Duuude, it’s a major buzzkill (inhales deeply on a bong).  How will we grow more weed duuuude?

Me:  I see.  Is there more?

Hippie:  Oh yeah DUUUDE!!  They were saying that by 1985, air pollution would have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half? How will we grow weed dude?  Did you also know that that in 1973, 200,000 Americans will die from air pollution, and that by 1980 the life expectancy of Americans would be 42 years?

Me:  Hey man, answer me one question…what year is it?

Hippie:  DUUUDE!  Calendars are for fascists!  We can’t be restrained by imposed time limits…  Is it about 1972?

Me:  (Facepalm) Do you know that it’s 2012, and NONE of the things you said even came close to happening?

Hippie:  DUUUUUUUDE (Hits bong deeply)

With the few remaining brain cells of the hippie dying, I decided to move on.  I guess that  because the earth had cooled between the late 40?s and late 70?s, the environmentalists made their exaggerations “fit” the data.  Then, when the earth began to warm in the 80?s and 90?s, they had to retool their warnings of doom and gloom to create a “global Warming” scare.  Each time though, it’s the same thing.  We’re destroying the Earth, and it’s capitalism’s fault.  What will they do if the current cooling continues?  It just might given the fact that the sun is about to go into one of it’s regular phases of decreased output.  How much do they expect the people of the world to “buy?”

Frankly, unless evidence proves the contrary, the Conservative Hideout can’t declare Man Made Global Warming missing, we may have to state that it never existed!

MSNBC Talking Head Melissa Harris-Perry: All Your Children are Belong to Us

Share

I think it’s getting even more amazing for the regressives in that they are slipping more and more.  And, in that slippage, they’re letting out more and more of their ideas, and they don’t even get that it’s the most totalitarian drivel.  I guess if you live in the unreality bubble, it’s a matter of time before you slip and think that tyranny is the normal state of man.

In the latest example of regressive truth slippage, we have Melissa Harris-Perry, who happens to think that all of your children are belong to us.  MRC has the video…

Now, this whole concept of children belonging to the “community,” read, the state, is not new at all. Here are some historical references…

When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”
Adolf Hitler
Speech November 1933, quoted in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer

Kinda reminds you of public education, doesn’t it?

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”

— Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf

Harris-Perry must have been doing her homework!

Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.
Vladimir Lenin

That would be the goal, wouldn’t it?

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. Vladimir Lenin

Just to make sure that no one missed it.

Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
Joseph Stalin

Hey, why depend on dead dictators to show the origins of Harris Perry’s thinking?

Remember how the Clinton administration viewed children and “human capital.”  These principals are at work in our country as we speak! -Editor 

Shortt also cites Robert Owen, one of the Anglo-American world’s first influential socialists, who developed a similar philosophy of education. Owen believed that children should be separated from their parents as early as possible and raised by the state. He believed people were exclusively the products of their social environments, and that if nurtured properly by the state, could be molded into whatever was desired. A key to the thinking that went into forming the official ideology of state-sponsored education was that human beings are innately good, not sinful, and that human nature could be perfected by the right kind of educational system. The ideology that eventually developed would hold that children could be molded into willing consumers of the products of big business and obedient servants of government. In short, the aims of state-sponsored schools were to transform thinking, highly individualistic and very literate citizens into an unthinking, collectivized mass. The slow but steady decline in literacy of all kinds was a by-product.

Yes, the children belong to the community!

“Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our Founding Fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future.”

–Professor Chester M. Pierce, M.D., Professor of Education and Psychiatry at Harvard

Getting a better idea now?

“Among the elementary measures the American Soviet government will adopt to further the cultural revolution are…[a] National Department of Education…the studies will be revolutionized, being cleansed of religious, patriotic, and other features of the bourgeois ideology. The students will be taught the basis of Marxian dialectical materialism, internationalism and the general ethics of the new Socialist society.”

     –William Z. Foster, Toward Soviet America, 1932 National Chairman of the American Communist Party (1933-44, 1945-57)

OK, I know, that’s overkill.  But what Harris-Perry is talking about.  Totalitarian systems always take children, claiming that they are belong to the state.  They take them in the name of nurturing and protecting them, but in the end, what they are doing is enslaving them to a failed ideology.  And, they also get the added benefits of the students coming out uneducated, unthinking, unquestioning, and following the regressive ideology to the nth degree.  After all, there is free stuff to be had.

Teachers, Communists, and Refusing to Talk to Media

Share

What happens when the unions and communists march as one?  Well, it appears that to prevent them from saying anything stupid on camera, they don’t talk to anyone on camera.  The Right Scoop has the video…

Mind you, these people are teaching children lies about a system that featured…

1.  Failed economics that resulted in medocrity at best, and often mass starvation.

2.  Gulags, informants, and people being “disappeared.”

3.  Over 100,000,000 dead in the last century.

4.  A system that had to build wall-to keep their own people in.

Of course, the children are being taught that these things either didn’t happen, or were someone else’s fault.  In other words, they’re talking like Democrats (or do I repeat  myself?).

Some Thoughts on Human History, and Progressives

Share

Many of you might have noticed that I often put quotations around the word, “progressive.”  Over the last couple of years, I’ve probably wasted a thousand keystrokes doing that, so I might as well explain why.

For the vast majority of human history, mankind has lived in a state of tyranny.  This probably started not long after cave man Ugh realized that his neighbor, Argh was weaker than him, and carried a smaller club.  After Argh’s untimely demise (with the exception of some tribal societies), the course of mankind was set.

As mankind developed from hunter gatherers to simple agrarian societies, to city states, and then empires, a variety of chieftains, kings, dictators, warlords, priests, priestesses, and self declared “gods,” have ruled mankind.  During those  countless ages, the average person lived, or died, at the whim of his or her self-appointed leader.  Economies were controlled, taxes were high, incomes were close to nil, and the average person often died as penniless as they were at birth.  Economies centered on the wealth of the leaders, not on the people, so  pestilence and starvation killed many when it did not need to happen.  There was little to no income distribution.  There was the top class; the leaders and their enforcers, and there were the peasants.  There was not even a hint of equality or justice, just oppressive rule.  (I know that Rome was, for a time, a republic, and some Greeks practiced democracy, but even then, they were a drop in the bucket when compared to the total history of man)

These tyrannical leaders did not tolerate dissent, or even the chance of dissent.  people were tortured, maimed, and executed to insure the power of the ruler(s).  People were killed for treason, heresy, or for simply knowing someone who might have done something.  There was no, “taking to the streets.”  Such events would have been met with lethal force.  Not only that, the entire town in which such a thing occurred might be razed in retaliation.

The leaders during those dark times were said to be wiser, stronger, more suited to rule, and it had been ordained by God that they should have power.  And all the while, excesses and corruption were the order of the day.

However, as the centuries passed, progress-REAL progress, was made.  The Magna Carta established that people have some rights, though it is not as codified as are the rights in our Constitution.   Also, John Locke, among others, formulated the ideas of natural rights and the social contract.

Our Founding Fathers were the next in line for real progress.  They created, in the Unites States Constitution, the greatest charter for human freedom ever devised. They embraced the idea of Natural Rights, in the human freedoms are from God, and that government exists to protect those rights-and cannot take them away.  Humans were protected in their right to free speech, their freedom of religion, their right to defend themselves, their right to property and all the others that we tend to take for granted today.  In our Republic, man rules himself, and government exists only to do those functions that man cannot do for himself, such as national defense, enforcing contracts, establishing courts, coining money, and so forth.  Or at least, that’s is how it’s supposed to be.

However, the forces of tyranny did not rest or concede when true human freedom started to emerge.  The next stages of tyranny were  Communism, followed by the original “progressive movement,” and then Fascism.  All of these are related in terms of the fact that they center power in an elite, that then control all aspects of human behavior.  Their only differences are in process and scope.

The results were horrific.  Over a hundred million people were killed in the name of Communism.  Fascism might have  equaled  that, had they not been stopped by WW II.  The “progressives,” operating in Western Democracies, had to move slowly.  Incrementalism has been their primary operating procedure.  However, they inspired the Nazi’s with their love for eugenics, and were “fellow travelers” with the other two movements.

Over the decades, “progressives,” operating under a variety of labels , have moved through our institutions.  They have used a variety of justifications to give the Federal government more power.  They have taken control of education.  They are in control of the MSM.  They have crafted  regulations  that destroy business and industry.  They created social programs that have encouraged dependency, and then have created economic crisis to fill those programs to unprecedented levels.  They have legalized sexual assault in the name of “security.”  They have also used the created and false crisis of global cooling, global warming, climate change in order to justify the reduction of our lifestyles.  All of this, of course, will be monitored and controlled by the authorities.

Their desire for control extends to all aspects of human life.  Government wants to tell us what kind of food can we eat- even if we can grow our own.  We are told how much water our toilets can use.  The kinds of car we can own-and eventually, even if we can own one is to be determined by unelected  bureaucrats.    What kind of house we can build, the healthcare we can recieve, and a host of others, are all in the crosshairs of the “progressives.”  They even seek to control mass media and the internet to control the free flow of information.  In the end, are we free if the government dictates so many of our basic human functions?

We also see how the “progressives” treat those that disagree with them. Conservative and Libertarian students are threatened and punished on   campuses, where free speech is curtailed, and labeled as “hate.”  Union members and other “progressives” engage in violence and intimidation to silence those that dissent.  The Constitution itself has been declared “outdated,” or “irrelevant.”  The Founders themselves are attacked and discounted.  After all, if we are to be controlled by an all powerful government, the very ideas of freedom have to be attacked, silenced and discredited.

As you can see, “progressives” are not progressive. They are REgressive.  They seek to return us to a state in which we are controlled and dominated by a small elite.  And just as the monarchs of old, they seek the “divine right of kings,” in order to gain and maintain control over us.  Of course, they tell us that it’s for our own good, but they proceed from the faulty premise that they know better than us, and that we cannot self govern.

We were born into a state of freedom.  In terms of human history, this is a rare and precious gift.  Only the tiniest fraction of all humans that have ever lived have enjoyed these freedoms.  If we allow the Regressives to take them away, it might be centuries before they re-emerge, and hundreds of millions will die in the process.

Are we going those freedoms, and the future of mankind, over to a small elite that “knows what’s best?”

UPDATE:  American apparently took a sharp left turn towards regression last night.  Many may be deceived  but they will find out soon enough.

NOTE: This is yet another post that could be turned into a small book.  Obviously there are things I could not touch on without making it my first book. Feel free to let me know what I missed in the comment section.

Cartoon 60 Years Ahead of Its Time

Share

Make Mine Freedom (1948) is a post WWII cartoon that is alarmingly relevant given the political climate of today. This little gem really sums up the evils of “ism,” a generic term used to represent Communism, Marxism and Progressivism.

Another ironic point in the cartoon is the idea of drinking the KoolAid, because the “ism” in the film is represented by a tonic being peddled by a “Dr. Yoo-Topia.”

Do yourself a favor and take 10 minutes to watch this film. Then forward it to as many people as you can.

Jay-Z Almost Realizes That Occupy is Marxist

Share

Rapper Jay-Z seems to be getting that something isn’t quite right with the Occupy Movement, though he still hasn’t connected all the dots.  The Blaze has more…

“What’s the thing on the wall, what are you fighting for?” Jay-Z said in a recent New York Times magazine interview.

“I’m not going to a park and picnic, I have no idea what to do, I don’t know what the fight is about. What do we want, do you know?” he said he asked rap magnate Russel Simmons.

His questions for the anti-corporate movement continued:

I think all those things need to really declare themselves a bit more clearly. Because when you just say that ‘the 1 percent is that,’ that’s not true. Yeah, the 1 percent that’s robbing people, and deceiving people, these fixed mortgages and all these things, and then taking their home away from them, that’s criminal, that’s bad. Not being an entrepreneur.

“This is free enterprise. This is what America is built on,” he added, defending those who, he thinks, create wealth and success legitimately.

Alrighty then, is Jay-Z is upset that the movement to which he stated support, is targeting everyone that has been successful?  Is he realizing that they are a pack of Marxists that would do him in, right along with the evil bankers (that were following what the government told them to do)?  It’s hard to tell, and while the author at The Blaze doubts it, it is quite possible that Jay-Z is beginning to realize that the monster that would eat the bankers would devour him as well.

To Jay-Z, I can only say that I respect your success, and would do nothing to take it from you.  Occupy, however, are avowed Marxists, and if they succeed, it won’t matter what you’ve done for them, you are wealthy, and that means that you have to go.  Success is inherently evil to the occupods, and terribly unfair.  Your wealth will be taken, and if you’re lucky, they’ll let you live.

Hopefully, Jay-Z realizes this, before he discovers the fate of the useful idiots.

Flub-A-Dub Obama Channels The VC … And More

Share

 

A President is Known by the Weapons He Chooses..

Talk about a gaffe and a tell, “AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals.” said President Obama. To the millions of American veterans who have faced multiple enemies around the globe who were armed with the AK 47, this is such a huge admission of where the sympathies of our supposed commander-in-chief lie as to make one want to choke. The President of the United States of America just identified what he believes to be the weapon of choice for military forces and guess what? It is in fact the weapon of choice of America’s enemies … You liberals can deny, tap dance and attempt to explain away until the cows come home, but this cow has come into the barn. This political cow, our president, is a far leftist in whose mind the weapon of choice is the AK 47, a veritable symbol of violent revolutionary communism around the world.As a Vietnam veteran, I’m telling you, Barack Obama might as well have raised a red star communist flag. Those of us who know weaponry know that a man is known by the weapons he prefers and chooses. Barack Obama chose the most symbolic weapon of America’s enemies.

Obama’s “RED” Is Showing!!!

If there was the slightest doubt about Obama’s Marxism, his “put down” of the American capitalist system last weekend should have swept it completely away.What all America saw was the REAL Obama — the statist, the collectivist, the socialist, the Marxist Obama.

… Obama has introduced the seduction of socialism into the American consciousness.  My generation has no problem defining socialism.  We know it for what it is.  Many of us old veterans were even trained to fight it on the battlefield.

However, “Modern America” is largely bereft of that real-world experience and they are the worst educated generation this country has ever produced  –  so far. These conditions make them perfect dupes, and easy targets for socialist con men like Obama and his minions.

Modern Americans have been set-up to FAIL — and to FALL for socialism — by the American public education system. By 2008, the only thing needed for them to fall head over heels into the socialist cesspool was a socialist snake oil salesman.  Obama filled the bill for that post.   He had been groomed for many years for his role in “fundamentally changing” America.

… America is now at the tipping point. The country is very close to being equally divided between socialists and capitalist.  That should frighten you … Mr. Obama, by showing us his true Marxist self, last weekend, also unmasked the political left in America. They have been doing business as democrats when, in  fact, they have been socialist and Marxists all along.

The gathering storm clouds over America are dark and violent. They are filled with turbulence and tribulation much as the last time Americans went to war with each other. But this time there will be no Mason-Dixon line dividing enemies.  This time your enemy will be next door, across the street, or in the room down the hall …

You Didn’t Build It…Because I Didn’t Earn It

It isn’t socialism that explains Obama’s dismissive “you didn’t build that” remark toward people of talent and individual initiative; it’s the culture of affirmative action. As I listened to Obama’s silly, if not pathetic, comments, I was reminded of nothing so much as the comments and attitudes of people like him: the so-called “multicultural” affirmative-action students one encounters in colleges and universities.

These are people who, like Obama, earned little except a greased skid because of the color of their skin. They knew that by any competitive standard of merit, they were undeserving. The faculty and other students knew it. And the affirmative action students knew that everyone knew it.

Obama knows he didn’t have what it took to get into Columbia, and he didn’t have what it took to get into Harvard Law. Let’s face an inescapable reality. If Obama had great grades, his transcripts would be in a full-page ad in the New York Times.

All Hands on Deck as the Silver-Tongued President Continues Clarifying ‘You Didn’t Build That’

Years ago, our own Dan McLaughlin defined ”swiftboating” as “Accurately quoting a Democratic politician’s own words.”

By that definition, President Obama is being swiftboated up a creek without a paddle right now, as constant repetition of his own words has the campaigner-in-chief and every attack dog he can muster working day and night to “clarify” his remarks on small business … Obama’s July 13 “you didn’t build that” comment was the second remark in seven days that required extensive clarification (the first being the July 7 claim that “the private sector is doing fine” …

President Obama Is A Radical

[..] As president, Obama has selected individuals who are, or identify with, socialist, Marxist, communist ideologies and other obtuse thinking. Some of these people include Anita Dunn, Ron Bloom, Van Jones, Carol Browner, Harold Koh, Sonia Sotomayor, John Holdren, Kevin Jennings, Mark Lloyd, Chai Feldblum and Valerie Jarrett, to name a few.

Valerie Jarrett is Obama’s closest adviser and confidant. Jarrett was ecstatic when announcing the addition of Van Jones (a communist) to Obama’s team. Jarrett’s father-in law was member of the Illinois Communist Party and friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis. It’s hard to deny that Obama’s early communist influence has come all the way to the Oval Office.

… Democrats, your party is being used by the far, far left. The Social Democrats’ website declares a “Party Within a Party” and states “The Socialist Party, USA, in 1956, chose to stop running candidates of its own, except on rare occasion. During the 1960s, we began to work in the Democratic Party.” Support for Obama from socialists, Marxists and communists is really quite stunning. Leftists know who Barack Obama is. Do you?

The People v. The Democratic Party

In the latest in a series of 48-page broadsides from Encounter Books, writer Michael Walsh puts the Democratic Party on trial and presents the case for abolishing what is nothing more than “a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.”

“From the inception of the Republic, the Democratic Party has been a public enemy – an organization antithetical to our nation’s traditions, civic virtues, and moral values.” In fact, “the party of slavery, segregation, secularism, and sedition has always been in the forefront of everything inimical to the United States of America.

Top 400 Wage Earners Paid More in Taxes Than the Bottom Half! Leftist Meme Shattered

Share

If you listen to the occupods, the mythical 99% are being completely fleeced by the equally mythical 1%.  Class warfare is a stubborn thing, but reality always wins in the end.  Bunkerville has the meme bustage…

Just thought this would be a factoid worthy to report. Reality can be difficult to deal with. Not mentioned is not only do the non-payers not pay, but get money back from the 400. I don’t think 400 come to  “The one percent” do you?

Bottom Line: A small group of 400 of America’s most successful earners in 2009, about the number of residents living in a typical apartment building in Washington, D.C., paid almost as much in federal income taxes as the entire bottom half of America’s 138 million tax filers, which is a population equivalent to the combined number of residents living in America’s 29 least populated states, plus the District of Columbia.

We hear all the time that the “rich don’t pay their fair share of taxes” (123,000 Google search results for that phrase).  Here’s an analysis using recent IRS data that suggests otherwise.

Get over to his place to see more, including a handy graph.

Um, how to we get these people to pay, “their fair share,” when they’re already paying more than 138,000,000 people already?  Or, is this just another liberal scam to vilify success and install communism?  I think you all know the answer to that.

Of course, under a Marxist regime, the 400 would be put to death, as well as a few million of the 138,000,000, but if you want to make an omelette, you have to break some eggs, right?

Useful Idiot of the Month Nomination Thread: May 2012

Share

Once again, it is time to nominate a field of worthy nominees for the Useful Idiot of the Month.  I’m sure that the readers will have no problems finding a set of nominees for the cause.

For those of you who may no be familiar with the concept, a useful idiot is a person or group who, knowingly or not, helps advanced the cause of Marxism/Socialism is a Western country.  The Soviets called them that, and unfortunately for the useful idiots, when they got the Communism they so desired, they were most often killed, imprisoned, or just “disappeared.”  You see, when Marxists come to power, the useful idiots aren’t needed any longer, so they are no longer useful.  That, and their idealism has no place in a Socialist state, where government power, and the maintenance of that power, are the sole goal of the ruling elites.  After all, you can’t have idealism clashing with your totalitarianism, can you?

At any rate, have at it.  Drop your nominees in the comment section, and the poll will go up on Tuesday.

Enjoy!

Useful Idiot of the Month: March 2012 Nomination Thread

It’s that time folks!  We have a mission here at the CH2.0.  We have to nominate useful idiots for this month’s poll.  For those new to this, useful idiots are people that, unwittingly or not, support socialism/Marxism.  Then, when Marxists actually come to power, and install a totalitarian state, the useful idiots are usually eliminated.  After all, you can’t have idealism interfering with the totalitarianism, can you?   It’s happened everywhere a Marxist state has been installed, but, according to the useful idiots, the survivors and witnesses are lying, so it’ll come a big surprise if it happens to them.

The process is simple, drop you candidates in the comment section.  In two days, I’ll post the poll, and the world can vote for their favorite useful idiot.

Ready, set, GO!

Useful Idiot of the Month: January 2012 Nomination Thread

Share

Wow, 2012 is flying by.  Before you know it, it’ll be December 21st, and I’ll busy writing a post, busting the chops of anyone who bought into the whole end of the world thing.  It’ll run on 12-22, so stand by for some fun.

But, I digress.  We have some work to do.  It’s the end of the month, and we need to get some useful idiots to put in the monthly poll.  Given the news stories from this month, we shouldn’t have a difficult time.

For those of you that might be new to this, it’s rather simple.  A useful idiot is someone that promotes, or otherwise helps the cause of Marxism.  The term was coined by the Soviets not long after they took over the USSR.  They would use useful idiots to destabilize other nations.  Then, when Marxists took over, most of the useful idiots were killed or jailed.  After all, you can’t have idealism interfering with you totalitarianism, can you?

At any rate, drop your nominees in the comment section, and I’ll make sure that the poll is up for Monday!

Occupiers Wear Out Welcome at NY Churches

Share

It seems that no matter where they lurk, occupiers are wearing out their welcome.  The latest comes from NY City, where at least two churches were allowing occupiers to camp there at night.  FOX News has the predictable results…

  There’s no longer room at the inn at a Manhattan church that’s sheltering Occupy Wall Streeters after a holy vessel disappeared from the altar last week.

When the Rev. Bob Brashear prepared for Sunday services at West Park Presbyterian Church on West 86th Street, he noticed parts of the bronze baptismal font were gone.

In a fire-and-brimstone message to occupiers later that day, he thundered, “It was like pissing on the 99 percent.”

In Brooklyn, at another church housing OWS protesters, an occupier urinated on a cross, according to Rabbi Chaim Gruber, who has angrily abandoned the OWS movement.

In a letter last week to OWS obtained by The Post, the rabbi fumed, “The Park Slope church housing occupiers was desecrated when an occupier peed inside the building and the pee came into contact with a cross.”

It is important to note that, according to the FOX story, Rev. Brashear found part of the baptismal font in a small room connected to the church.

It has always amazed my that any Christian entity would openly cooperate with Occupy, or any other Marxist movement.   Since Marxism is inherently Godless, and is based on theft and complete subjugation of the populace, it makes little sense that churches would ally with them, or host them.  Of course, the pastors of the two churches mentioned in the story, learned the hard way, that the occupiers are exactly what we’ve been saying that they are.  And, they are behaving exactly as we have predicted.
