Ridiculing American Marxism: The Wrong-Side of History

January 17, 2021

Those who voted for Biden and Harris have knowingly, or ignorantly, strengthened the the ongoing American Marxist Revolution. The word ignorant is not intended to insult to anyone…it is just a factual condition about ones knowledge-base in some area.

I am ignorant about many things. Some of which I will happily remain so.

As a practicing psychologist, I am careful to confess my relative ignorance in medicine, financial planning, law, and other areas that  would be unethical for me to pretend that I have expertise in.

I continue my studies about my life’s work, which includes all aspects of human behavior, including social and cultural evolution, as well as organized political behavior patterns and their consequences; both immediate and long-term. 

Many of my future blogs will present carefully considered arguments as to why American Marxism, and those who support it are on the wrong-side of history.

I care for all Americans, including those who voted in favor of the our Marxist Revolution. I even love some of them who are friends and family members.

I do hate Marxism and the death and destruction it has caused to societies through history and all around the world. I hate what it is now doing, and what is will continue to do to America if not courageously battled and defeated through our Constitutional democratic processes.

While I will endlessly criticize and ridicule American Socialism, I will not vilify my honest, well-intentioned and peaceful fellow citizens who politic and vote on the wrong-side of American history.

Obama: I Told You So #2

Obama: I told You So # 2
 
I posted the following on Oct. 28, 2010.  If you are tuned into the current scandals surrounding the Obama Administration, you need no further introduction to the following blog.

Quantcast

Obama: A Student, Teacher, Practitioner of the Alinsky School of Revolution

In his pamphlet on this topic, “Rules for Revolution”, David Horiwitz documents the strong connection between President Obama and Saul Alinsky, the radical revolutionary Saul Alinsky.

On page 13:

“Three of Obama’s mentors in Chicago were trained at the Alinsky Industrial Areas Foundation, and for several years Obama himself taught workshops on the Alinsky method”.

Page 14:

“‘On Barack Obama’s presidential campaign website, one could see a photo of Obama in a classroom “teaching students Alinskyan methods. He stood in front of a blackboard on which he has written, “Power Analysis’ and ‘ Relationships Built on Self Interest…”‘

On pages 14 and 15:

A summary of Obama’s Acorn involvement was described by the Wall Street Journal.

In 1991, he took time off from his law firm to run a voter-registration drive for Project Vote, an Acorn partner that was soon fully absorbed under the Acorn umbrella. The drive registered 135,00 voters and was considered a major factor in the upset victory of Democrat Carol Moseley Braun over incumbent Democratic Senator Alan Dixon in the 1992 Democratic Senate primary. Mr. Obama’s success made him a hot commodity on the community organizing circuit. He became a top trainer at Acorn’s Chicago conferences. In 1995, he became Acorn’s attorney, participating in a landmark case to force the state of Illinois to implement the federal Motor Voter Law. The law’s loose voter registration requirements would later be exploited by Acorn employees in an effort to flood voter rolls with fake names. In (1996), Mr. Obama filled out a questionnaire listing key supporters for his campaign for the Illinois Senate. He put Acorn first (it was not an alphabetical list).

End of all Quotes.

In the final analysis, though Alinsky was dead by the time Obama came on the scene, Obama was trained by Alinsky’s students and became a teacher of his socialist revolutionary strategies which were based upon deception, deceit and opportunism.

With Alinsky, “The issue is never the issue. The Issue is the revolution” (p. 10). The ends always justified the means.

With President Obama the issue is not health care, global warming, cap and trade, or stimulating the economy, etc., it is a revolutionary progressive transformation of a capitalistic society to a socialistic one.

Alinsky: Dress Up As Members of The Ku Klux Klan

October 26, 2010

Alinsky: “Dress Up As Members Of The Ku Klux Klan”.

In his pamphlet on this topic, “Rules for Revolution”, David Horiwitz documents the strong connection between President Obama and Saul Alinsky, the radical revolutionary.

On pages 42 and 43, he quotes and interprets Alinsky:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sanford Horwitt prefaces his biography of Alinski, “Let Them Call Me Rebel”, with an anecdote he felt illuminated Alinsky’s method. In this anecdote, Alinsky shares his wisdom with students wishing to protest the appearance on their campus of the first George Bush, then America’s representative to the UN during the  Vietnam War:

College student activists in the 1960s and 1970s sought out Alinsky for advice about tactics and strategy. On one such occasion in the spring of 1972 at Tulane University’s annual week-long series of events featuring leading public figures, students asked Alinsky to help plan a protest for a scheduled speech by George Bush, then U. S. representative to the United Nations, a speech likely to be a defense of the Nixon Administration’s Vietnam War policies [Note: the Nixon Administration was then negotiating with the North Vietnamese Communists to arrive at a peace agreement-DH] The students told Alinsky that they were thinking about picketing or disrupting Bush’s address. “That’s the wrong approach”, he rejoined–“not very relevant” and besides, causing a disruption might get them thrown out of school [Not very likely-DH] He told them, instead, to go hear the speech dressed up as members of the Ku Klux Klan, and whenever Bush said something in defense of the Vietnam War, they should cheer and wave placards, reading ‘The K.K.K. supports Bush.’ And that is what the students did with very successful, attention-getting results.

This vignette tells you everything your really need to know about Alinsky’s ethics and his attitude towards means and ends. Lenin once said that the purpose of a political argument is not to refute your opponent ‘ but to wipe him from the face of the earth.’ The mission of Alinsky radicals is a mission of destruction.

Beck’s “Revolutionary Holocaust: Live Free or Die”

January 24, 2010

Beck’s “Revolutionary Holocaust: Live Free or Die”

Thanks, Frank,  for the URL of a review of Beck’s program. I watched Beck’s program intently and I think that the following review is, in the main, a fair one…with repectful support for Beck’s work near the end of the review.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0110/31882.html

There was not much history in this documentary that I was unaware of.  The murder of millions by totalitarian socialist/communist regimes, was certainly no surprise to anyone in their 60’s, or those who have read the history of such events. However, I was not fully aware of the full extent to which Mao and Stalin had used the starvation of their own populations in an attempt to implement their Marxist-Leninist social redesigns. It was reported that Stalin was personally responsible for the starvation of 7-10 million people in only one year. In the Ukraine, the citizens were left to starve as the grain they produced was confiscated and sold to provide funds to further Stalin’s personal political and cultural goals. It was reported that 10 million tons of grain were needed to avoid starvation and that the Ukrainians had produced over 12 millions tons of grain, which was confiscated.

It was estimated that 65 million chinese citizens were killed under Maoist Communism. Mao was identified as the greatest mass murderer in history, by a factor of 3 to 1.

It was estimated that 100 million citizens died under the rule of communism in the 20th Century. This, it was presented, accounts for more than the estimated death rate due to Small Pox and the Bubonic Plague.

Che’ Guevara, was portrayed as a sadist who enjoyed killing people. It was presented that Che’ embraced censorship of artists and intellectuals and  that he advocated killing people who did not agree with the goals of his revolution.

Beck did exposeand document the ignorant buffoonery of those on the radical left who wear or brandish Mao and Che’ memorabilia as they ” demonstrate for freedom”.  The program did spotlight the fact that significant numbers of our own citizens, miniature “black holes” for truth and reality,  have bestowed celebrity and near Sainthood upon Mao and Che’.

A  main point in this program was that our educational system and our media, along with the tollerance of  the rest of us, are responsible for not educating our youth about the true history and savagery of these Communist/Socialist movements.

There were a number of compelling  first person accounts of the horrors suffered by citizens living under these regimes.

I did not get the impression that Beck was trying to imply (as one reviewer thought) that such horrors would be perpetrated, in America  by Americans, any time soon. Rather, he concluded that too much governmental power in the hands of one, or a very few, is much more likely than Democratic rule  to lead to Revolutionary Holocausts.  Yes, Glenn Beck is very concerned that the federal government is gaining way too much power in our time and if unchecked, will lead to greater losses of our freedoms. I share this concern.

I was impressed with Glenn Beck’s efforts to educate America’s public through his special production. Some reveiwers called it propaganda. I will call it good propaganda!

If you want the “Whole Truth”, with all of its nuances, consider obtaining  a major in history.

For a  sample of the whole program, as well as other insights, go to the following URL.
