The Marxist Template

A Flopping Aces' poster says the true revolutionary is willing to sacrifice everything for an idea: the men who signed The Declaration of Independence knew that they were possibly sacrificing their wealth, their property, their very lives and those of their families if the bold gamble ended in failure.  Signing the Declaration was an exercise in faith, for there were many brilliant minds that would debate the format for the Constitution; yet their signatures on that sacred document was a summary death sentence by hanging if an English Officer found a signor.  If the war had been lost they would have all been hanged.  These were revolutionaries with dignity and honor; instead of offering Wealth Redistribution (the theft of one man’s wealth to give to others), they offered Freedom.  There were no guarantees, only opportunity; mysterious concepts that were unique to the rugged individualists of the American frontier.  The opportunity to succeed or fail appealed to Americans with initiative and a work ethic: the concept is an anathema to the indigent and lazy who feel entitled because of the designation of victim, bestowed on them by our Progressive Socialists.

In the on going movement of Progressive Socialist Revolution, the ultimate goal is World Socialism.  A world where all the world’s wealth is supposedly shared equally by the workers and decisions are carried out by a group of omnipotent Elite henchmen who can control huge masses of people with the ruthlessness of a Mao or Stalin type figure.

The Russian Revolution had its visionaries, initially there were two basic groups, the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks; the early Russian Marxists promised freedom, justice, happiness, and equality.  The Bolsheviks, led by Lenin and Trotsky among others, gained control and devolved into a concentration of power or dictatorship, rather than the Social Democracy later espoused by the Mensheviks.

Eventually, as the Revolution progressed, the Proletariat was expected to accept the loss of Freedom of the Press along with the concept of self as being necessary to advance the Revolution.  Lenin and Trotsky’s despotism was intended to silence the voices of opposition, starvation, being worked to death, and murder would be inflicted upon those who spoke against the Revolution.  Sacrificing culture, history and human life was deemed necessary for the sake of an idea, the progression of the Socialist Revolution.

This Revolutionary Radicalism is a concept that maintained it prominence with Radical Marxists throughout the twentieth century, happiness and the notion of self is considered a remnant of bourgeois culture were to be discarded; consequently, the needs of real people are forgotten in the revolutionary zeal of Socialism.

Obama was born into a family of radicals, was mentored by revolutionary Marxists, and befriended radical Marxists; now, America is standing and wondering about the true political character of the undocumented enigma holding the highest office in the land.  In the spirit of Stalin, the Ultimate Progressive Socialist, Obama has only appointed undistinguished mediocrities and sycophants to his administration, this emphasis on unremarkable talent serves to emphasize the meager talents of Obama and insures that there will be no rising stars to divert attention from the self-conscious Narcissist who desires to be adored and worshiped by his subjects, documented by the appearances on the mindless TV shows designed to perpetuate the myth of celebrity status.  Although presidents have a degree of celebrity status, there is a difference between the celebrity status of presidents and the silly American celebrity adoration of athletes, musicians, and Hollywood types.  For the first time in our history, we have a president attempting to mix the natural respect towards the dignity and honor of the office of the presidency with the classless worship of popular celebrities by our lowest common denominator.

His vision for the United States has included marginalizing the accomplishments of the United States, during his international apology tours, Obama’s essential message to the rest of the world was, "See how I have tamed the savage beast, nothing is too difficult for the Obama."  Of course in the Plans for International Socialism, his Citizen of the World designation that he has awarded himself and intends on granting to the population of America, is merely a paragraph in his giant plan for International Socialism and his hoped for position among the Ruling Elite of the world.

Fruit Of The Poison Tree Of Socialism
John Hinderaker reminds us that "By the fruit you know the tree" is the world's wisest proverb; you could get through life reasonably well on that adage if you didn't know much else.  Which brings us to Communism, perhaps the greatest of history's evils.  (It would be interesting to compare the ravages of Communism with, say, the bubonic plague.)  Via Ann Althouse, "Mao's 'Great Leap Forward' killed 45 million in four years":
    

Mao Zedong, founder of the People's Republic of China, qualifies as the greatest mass murderer in world history, an expert who had unprecedented access to official Communist Party archives said yesterday.

Speaking at The Independent Woodstock Literary Festival, Frank Dikötter, a Hong Kong-based historian, said he found that during the time that Mao was enforcing the Great Leap Forward in 1958, in an effort to catch up with the economy of the Western world, he was responsible for overseeing "one of the worst catastrophes the world has ever known".

Mr Dikötter, who has been studying Chinese rural history from 1958 to 1962, when the nation was facing a famine, compared the systematic torture, brutality, starvation and killing of Chinese peasants to the Second World War in its magnitude.  At least 45 million people were worked, starved or beaten to death in China over these four years; the worldwide death toll of the Second World War was 55 million.

    
War is a terrible thing, but the calculated, sadistic cruelty of socialism is far worse:
    

His book, Mao's Great Famine; The Story of China's Most Devastating Catastrophe, reveals that while this is a part of history that has been "quite forgotten" in the official memory of the People's Republic of China, there was a "staggering degree of violence" that was, remarkably, carefully catalogued in Public Security Bureau reports, which featured among the provincial archives he studied.  In them, he found that the members of the rural farming communities were seen by the Party merely as "digits", or a faceless workforce.  For those who committed any acts of disobedience, however minor, the punishments were huge.

State retribution for tiny thefts, such as stealing a potato, even by a child, would include being tied up and thrown into a pond; parents were forced to bury their children alive or were doused in excrement and urine, others were set alight, or had a nose or ear cut off.  One record shows how a man was branded with hot metal.  People were forced to work naked in the middle of winter; 80 per cent of all the villagers in one region of a quarter of a million Chinese were banned from the official canteen because they were too old or ill to be effective workers, so were deliberately starved to death.

    
No wonder that, apart from certain journalists, college professors, liberal politicians and other faux intellectuals, the entire world has turned away from Marxism in a spasm of revulsion.

When you add in the Chinese, the Soviets, the Pol-Pot Cambodians, Viet Cong, the North Koreans, and the Cubans and Nicaraguans, and Africans, and the like -- communism must have been good for 100 million dead in the 20th century.
Win An All-Expense Paid Trip To . . .
Rovin says, O.K. You don’t really get to win anything.  In the advertising business, this is called "a teaser" or a well designed deception.  I could have made a promise to send you anywhere in the country, (free round of golf included).  Or, I could promise you free health care.  Perhaps a job would be worth your efforts.  Or, (in the spirit of hope and change), I could just list all the promises Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the Democrats have falsely promised in the past two years to get your cooperation / vote.  But, then that would be a "designed deception" wouldn’t it?

The real fact is……this American economy sucks.  The mainstream media won’t tell you this, they’re too busy prostituting themselves by defending the very economic policies that have plunged this nation into record generational debt.  Billions in under-funded entitlements, billions in bailouts, and billions poured into the public jobs sector, (unions), yet we still have unemployment running between 10% to 14% depending on which state you live in.  Housing foreclosures are about to explode again because the powerful banking lobby got a pass on the financial reform Democrats promised would rein in fraudulent practices.  Wall Street and the banking industry have reverted back to business as usual.  Did I mention the economy still sucks?

While taking a pass on passing a real budget, and choosing NOT to vote on whether to extend the Bush tax rate cut -- Democrats love tax hikes -- Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the liberal progressives instead adjourned to go home and campaign on something other than their "accomplishments".  The Blue Dog Democrats are even campaigning against the Speaker of the House, and in some cases against the runaway federal spending which the White House has advocated and embraced.

Which bring us back to the contest.  What’s the next "wag the dog" in the White House’s attempt to distract us from the reality of a broken economy?  In this past year, the Obama administration tried inserting race relations into the debate, including the false accusation that the Tea Party and their candidates were racist thugs.  That didn’t work.  Further, they attempted to inject immigration and token border security by suing the State of Arizona for protecting themselves.  This distraction didn’t work either as national public opinion favored Arizona’s policies.  Now they are attacking private American businesses, (and the United States Chamber of Commerce), apparently because of their support for Republican candidates.  This hasn’t worked either.  So, what’s a failed administration to do when forecasters are predicting a tsunami of change back to the conservative principles of a smaller government and responsible spending practices?  You guessed it -- WAG THE DOG!

With fourteen days left for Barack Obama and the Democrats to keep American’s minds off the state of the economy, (and their party without any credible issue to campaign on), they just have to come up with one more BIG DISTRACTION.  What will it be?  Clinton tried bombing a few pill factories to take the nation’s mind off his indiscretions, while his wife blamed the now infamous "right wing conspiracy".

Only a liberal progressive Democrat could promise you a reward for coming up with another distraction or excuse for these failed policies.  Lord knows they’ve promised everything else, (at the taxpayer’s expense), from free health care to discounted homes and cars.  Payoffs to their unions and lawyers has cost this country billions, while this administration continues attacking private enterprises.  Obama and his bride are doing their best, (or worst), at demonizing the evil Republicans and their Tea Party’s aim to reduce the size and scope of government power.  While the nation mires itself in historic unemployment, and billions "invested"/wasted in the banks and Wall Street, this economy will continue to falter.  It’s only a matter of time.  But time has run out on this liberal social experiment.  Only a major distraction could keep motivated conservatives and independents from reaching the polls to reverse this disastrous agenda.  I can’t think of how desperate Obama and the Democrats could get in the next two weeks, or what they would come up with.  All I can do is promise to publish your entries here in the Greenroom.  Unlike the Democrats, it’s a promise that won’t bust the budget.
    

(While 99% of this post is factual, this essay is the sole opinion of the writer and not the owners of this site, or its affiliates.  Winners of the Wag the Dog contest will be judged by me and there will be no monetary rewards.  Like the Democratic Party, satisfaction is not guaranteed.)

      

Obama Talked About Class War -- Now He’s Got One
Terence P. Jeffrey says that anyone who listened carefully to Barack Obama over the last two years could not avoid hearing the rhetoric of a Marxist class warrior bent on dividing Americans by their perceived economic status.

Obama -- who ought to be a leader and inspiration for all Americans -- sought to motivate his supporters with alleged class-based grievances. He talked up class struggle and now has one -- if not exactly the one he envisioned.

There are only two sides in the domestic political conflict Obama has sparked -- and they are not the relatively rich and the relatively less rich in this still-remarkably affluent nation.  They are not defined by their material possessions but by their attitude toward freedom.  On one side are those who believe they are morally and materially responsible for their own destiny -- and are glad to be so.  On the other side are those who believe the rest of us owe them something and that government should take it from us and give to them.  This side is surrendering its freedom to government dependency.

In the future, America must follow either Obama’s Marxist vision or return to the vision of ordered liberty embedded by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Tuesday’s election was only the first battle in what will surely be the defining political struggle for Americans now alive.

"Look, the bottom line is this: These guys, they just don’t want to give up on that economic philosophy that they have been peddling for most of the last decade,"  Obama said at a Labor Day campaign rally in Milwaukee. "You know that philosophy: You cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires.  You cut all the rules and regulations for special interests.  And then you just cut working folks loose -- you cut them loose to fend for themselves," Obama said.

"You remember they called it the ownership society, but what it really boiled down to was, if you couldn’t find a job, you couldn’t afford college, you were born poor, your insurance company dropped you even though your kid was sick, that you were on your own," said Obama.  "Well, you know what, that philosophy didn’t work out so well for middle-class families all across America.  It didn’t work out so well for our country," Obama said.

Obama repeated this essential point ad nauseam in the 2010 campaign season.  His message in one sentence: The philosophy that Americans should "fend for themselves" did not "work out so well for our country."

To spread his gospel of government dependency, Obama preaches gloom and despair: freedom and self-reliance does not work, he is forever arguing.  Give it up.  In return, he offers his would-be acolytes a free lunch: Government will pay for your college education.  Government will pay for your health care.

In reality, in the redistributionist America that Obama would build, it would not be government that paid for anybody’s college education or health care, it would be the other class of Americans -- those who believe in freedom and self-reliance, who take care of themselves and their own, who lead industrious and productive lives, and who value freedom over security.

In Obama’s America, members of the self-reliant class would have ever greater portions of their hard-earned income and savings taxed away so redistributionist politicians could give more to the dependent class, which they would continue to nurture and build until there was no one left but the politicians and government dependents -- in a bankrupt country.

The lesson of the 2010 campaign is that most Americans do not want more government in their lives, they want less.  They do not want handouts from Obama.  They want him and other politicians like him off their backs and out of their wallets.
Obama Pledges Cooperation With Brazil's Marxist Leader
New Zeal has the official November 1 2010, press release on Barack Obama's message to newly elected President of Brazil and former Marxist-Leninist terrorist Dilma Rousseff.
    
    

Earlier this afternoon, President Obama called Dilma Rousseff, President-elect of Brazil, to congratulate her on her historic victory in yesterday’s election.  He commended the people of Brazil for their faith and commitment to democracy.  He also underscored the excellent working relationship between the United States and Brazil, and his commitment to deepening this cooperation and exploring new areas of collaboration.

President Obama told President-elect Rousseff that he looks forward to meeting with her soon, and working more closely on areas such as clean energy, global growth, reconstruction assistance for Haiti, collaborative development efforts, and other issues of global importance.

    
Rouseff also spoke to Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, leftist Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and Mexico's Felipe Calderon, the same day.
Obama Lauds Communism's Successes
  
    

Maybe when the red flag is flying on the lunar surface the United States will have a true Sputnik moment, the shocked realization that while the rest of mankind is making giant leaps, Obama’s America can manage only baby steps.
