Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
– Sir Winston Churchill
Communism in America was exposed in a 1958 book by conservative writer Cleon Skousen, “Naked Communist.” State-controlled capitalism, Federal Reserve, federal taxes, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unionism, welfare statism (subsidies) and pension plans, are examples of the thousands of treasonous Ponzi schemes and slush funds politicians have used since the 1850s to dumb down society, buy votes and broker power.
Examine this simple syllogism below from the own mouths of the forefathers of communism:
Marx: Democracy is the road to socialism;
Lenin: Democracy is indispensable to socialism. The goal of socialism is communism;
Marx: The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.
The logic is both diabolical and totalizing. Socialism is merely a euphemism for communism. Ergo, we’re all communists now.
Skousen’s book cited 45 communist strategies used to systematically deconstruct American institutions – Christianity, economics, education, capitalism, science, politics, the courts, natural law, etc., by purposely collapsing the system via the Cloward-Piven Strategy – top down, bottom up, inside out, and from the ashes erect a glorious new society based on Marxist atheism and the god of the state. Let’s examine whether Skousen’s predictions have come to fruition:
Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
Disarming the U.S. didn’t start during the anti-war protests of the hippies, anarchists and socialists of the 1960s. Homegrown traitors of America have disarmed America by giving military secrets to our enemies. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and physicist’s Robert Oppenheimer and Klaus Fuchs are just the most conspicuous. We have disarmed our military by promoting appeasement generals, putting women in combat positions and allowing homosexuals to serve openly.
Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
Wilson’s League of Nations (1919) became the United Nations under FDR at the San Francisco Conference in April, 1945, just 13 days after he died in office after serving four terms tirelessly deconstructing American society brick by brick and turning it into a servile welfare state. NATO is the U.N.’s de facto military presently fighting in Libya under the George Soros responsibility to protect doctrine. Many more U.N. wars will follow.
Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
The Communist Party USA has been brazenly operating in America since 1919 and through its sympathizers in the unions, Congress, the courts, Hollywood and the media, has overtime achieved constitutional free speech and association protections for itself which has essentially turned our Constitution into a suicide pact.
Do away with all loyalty oaths.
Loyalty oaths have been a part of America’s legal system since the Founding Fathers, who codified it under Art. II, §1, cl. 7 and Art. VI, cl.3. However, loyalty oaths exposed socialists and communists as being predominately humanists, atheists and duplicitous; therefore, after 170 years of jurisprudence protecting loyalty oaths, beginning in the early 1960s loyalty oaths were systematically ruled unconstitutionally “vague,” “overbroad” or violations of speech and association by our Marxist judiciary.
Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
Since 1901 under President Theodore Roosevelt, our first progressive president, Democrats and Republicans have essentially functioned as two sides of the same coin (Reagan notwithstanding). That’s why systemic societal pathology, promiscuity, ignorance, crime, deconstruction of the Constitution and education atheism has exploded while natural law, capitalism, societal morality and critical thinking has been purposely purged from society.
Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
The progressive Hughes and Warren Courts, positive law, separation of church and state, the incorporation doctrine, Roe v. Wade, NLRB v. Jones Laughlin Steel (1937), which legalized FDR’s Marxist New Deal programs, are a few examples of how socialist activist courts have deconstructed society and liberal judges have corrupted the Constitution.
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Stalin famously said of education, “Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.” Public education in America began in the 1830s expressing egalitarian ideas, but in less than 30 years was utterly corrupted by socialists under education unions like the National Education Association, or NEA, and the American Federation of Teachers, or AFT.
The official Soviet party newspaper was called “Pravda” (truth), but printed only lies and communist propaganda. The Soviets mastered absolute control of all media so that the people remained ignorant, fearful and suspicious of the U.S. America’s media has long championed socialist propaganda. Thank God for WND!
Since about 1937 when FDR’s “New Deal” programs were ruled constitutional, America has gradually devolved into a socialist nation which if Obama gets re-elected in 2012 will push our nation totally into communism. Lenin boasted, Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. America’s only hope is to ally with independent-minded people like the tea party, deconstruct every brick of the communist welfare state via the electoral process while purging the GOP of RINOs, take back the courts and reestablish a political discourse rooted firmly on the foundations of God, natural law, fair capitalism and the original intent of the framers of the Constitution.
