Are we being used by the enemy within?

This is from an Op-Ed written by the producer of the movie, Agenda: How Marxists Are Grinding America Down. Red State is highlighting it this morning (I know - Red State hates Dr. Paul and all that). What is striking to me is that while libertine impulses may have us wanting to be tolerant, we may be missing the forest through the trees. Social movements and the people in them are being used to destroy the United States. Perhaps we are also being used in the same manner.

Communist agenda makes its way to our mainstream

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

By Curtis Bowers

The start of a new year is always a time of reflection as we learn from the past and prepare for the future. An unusual opportunity I had years ago is especially significant today, in light of the many issues facing Americans.

In 1992 I read that the Communist Party USA was gathering at the University of California, Berkeley. I was curious to see what they had to say about the Berlin Wall coming down and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Would they give up, or did they have a different approach? I decided to go and find out.

I assumed it would be a bunch of radical college students, so to fit the part, I grew a goatee, got a revolutionary T-shirt and put on some ratty jeans. After getting checked into my dorm room on campus, I went over to the conference hall for the first meeting. I was amazed to see a room filled with 50-, 60- and 70-year-old men and women, professionally dressed with their briefcases.

For the next several days I listened, took notes and talked to the leadership. The plan they unfolded had nothing to do with guns, bombs or violence. They acknowledged their disappointment with what had happened in the Soviet Union but felt they could still “take America down.” This time, instead of using force from the outside, they would use public policy from the inside.

They had a three part agenda. They would use their manpower, influence and funds to back anything that would destroy our families, businesses and culture.

Firstly, to destroy the family, they would promote co-habitation instead of marriage. They would also try to get children away from their mothers into government programs at the earliest age possible. They felt the best way to do this was to promote the feminist movement, which had been very effective at making women discontent with marriage and motherhood.

Secondly, to destroy businesses, they aimed to wipe out the profit potential that motivated people to start them. If people couldn’t make good money off their ideas and hard work, they would eventually be content working for someone else. They were sure the environmental movement (modest at the time) was the only vehicle capable of creating enough regulation and expense to discourage business growth.

Finally, to destroy our culture, they needed us to abandon our heritage of religion and morality. They believed the homosexual movement, if accepted, would begin to effectively extinguish these values.

At the time they laid out this strategy, I wasn’t overly impressed. It seemed very unrealistic and certainly not something to worry about in my lifetime. Yet as I sit in my office, recall their plan and consider where America is today, I am shocked.

Our first woman presidential candidate talks about how degrading it is to be a stay-at-home mom. Businesses are closing down or moving daily to other countries because environmental regulations are too excessive to make a profit. And legislation is being considered in Washington, D.C. that makes it a crime to discuss in public any opposition to the homosexual lifestyle. As the old advertisement said, “You’ve come a long way, baby!”

When we see many mainstream politicians and activist judges with the same agenda that just 16 years ago was that of Communist strategists, it is time for patriotic Americans to wake up and get involved.

I bookmarked this . . .

to look at it later--

Wrong culprit but strategy correct.

I will have to take issue with the use of the word 'Communism' in the post. Communism with a capital 'C' was a movement and party where socialism was implemented top down. The word communism (small c) is defined as the means of production and all property being owned by society. Socialism is the means of production owned by society. Neither of these two ideas were ever fully implemented. They were Marx' ideas. But in his defense he never advocated a 'vanguard party' transitioning the populace which resulted in all of the bloodshed. He naively thought the masses would do it on their own and that the system would work. Actual communism has rarely been tried outside of families and kibbutz'. Mao attempted it during the Great Leap Forward to the detriment of the lives of 18-45 million in two short years.

I do think the poster is right in the rest of his theory. Although I think the group initiating the cultural destruction is an ethnic group.

The following video goes in-depth into the motives, names, and examples of the strategy and tactics.

Excerpt from Gary North's review of this documentary...

CONCLUSION

This documentary is intellectually appalling. Sadly, Mr. Bowers raised the money to produce it. Once again, we see a well-meaning fundamentalist who does not know what he is talking about raise a pile of money to convey a misleading analysis of a continuing problem -- statist humanism -- and get it wrong.

He has focused our attention on a non-issue: American Communism. He has ignored the fundamental battle: between humanist state power and private initiative. He mentions this at the end of the video with respect to private education (he favors this) and environmentalism (he opposes this). But the battle today has nothing to do with American Communism. It never did.

American Communism is a red herring. (Sorry. I could not resist.)

Liberals in 1955 said that conservatives saw a Communist under every bed. That was true of a lot of conservatives in 1955.

There were hardly any Communists under beds in America in 1955. It was not the Commies under the bed who were the problem in 1955. It was Congress, the executive bureaucrats, the Supreme Court under Earl Warren, the Federal Reserve System, and the tax-funded schools. They were all in bed with the American Establishment. Anti-Communist conservatives spent too much time looking under the bed in 1955. The real action was under the covers.

This remains the problem. Judge Roberts has replaced Warren. He ratified Obamacare. It's still the same old story.

Agenda got the story wrong.

This leads me to my as yet-unanswered question: "How do Christians with good intentions and no sense get the money to produce expensive schlock for Jesus?"

I wish it would stop. It won't.

Well Done!

Thanks. I'll have to look further.

To answer the last question - they get the money from the Banksters/Corporatist masters, just like the megachurches and the Christian TV networks.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Fake

It is a good read, but it is fiction. First of all, the American Communist Party (the proper name) had already been dissolved and melded into the Neoconservative movement by then.

Secondly, crap like this:

"Finally, to destroy our culture, they needed us to abandon our heritage of religion and morality. They believed the homosexual movement, if accepted, would begin to effectively extinguish these values."

Right out of the Neocon/Evangelical playbook.

I think Bowers made a gread financial ploy, but that's abbout it. If he was really 'rooting' out communism, he would have started in DC and people like Dick Cheney.

not communists

Dick Cheyney is not a Communist. Noeconservatives are not communists. What are you talking about?

Yes, they are

Sorry you have never looked into it, but the Neoconservatives ("Faux Conservatives") came out of the Straussian wing of the Chicago School. Irving Kristol who was the long-time chairman of the American Communist Party (yep, William's daddy), was one of the original Neocons and was actively involved with Bush and Cheney to take over the Reagan admministration.

It is true they may not be mainline communists that the media tells you about, but they are believers in the ideas of Trotsky. So, they work towards world communism and believe in the sovietization of North America. Since we have had a fascist (corporatist) financial system since the 40's, they have taken advantage of it. But, if you look at what is happening, they are slowly reversing the game on the corporations.

Did you never see Ron Paul's speech about the Neocons?

Communism is just one means to an end, not the end itself

Communism was never the end, just one means, right up there with fascism. Destroying the family, the culture, our means to make a living, etc., is a great way to have us all dependent on the state. The end result is global totalitarianism. Those that have the power use all sorts of methods.

People aren't being manipulated by Communists when they support freedom. It's still the right thing to do. The Powers That Be pick and choose what they want from all political philosophies to achieve their goals.

Why do you think we're being "libertine," by being tolerant? I think you meant libertarian, right?

They've got the wrong enemies. The enemy aren't the middling Communists, but those that hold the power to turn free people into serfs. They are way above any petty political philosophies.

The Superman idea - debunked

Yes, that's all about it:

"[...]is a great way to have us all dependent on the state. The end result is global totalitarianism."

What the useful idiots systematically fail to realize re: wishful utopias that imply somehow the necessary existence of a big state (or of a small one, albeit designed to grow) ... is that there is indeed a hidden agenda behind "the Superman idea" - be it veiled or openly bragging about itself - but debunked long ago, anyway:

http://bastiat.org/en/the_law.html#SECTION_G063

... should they just bother reading from our past, and the non-mainstream once in a while, preferably.

But the useful idiots tend to not care much about fixing their ignorance. Hell, no. Rather:

Their contemplating to get "free stuff" and/or "free safety" from the state ... has higher priority.

What follows is very much mechanical, deterministic. Just a matter of time.

Nazi Germany or Soviet Union or etc survivors can probably confirm.

OH MY GOD THE REDS ARE COMING!

Calm down, the communists are the least of our troubles right now.

"The State is a gang of thieves writ large." - Murray Rothbard

There is no communist conspiracy.

There is no organized crime either - just ask J Edgar Hoover.

But back to those communist infiltrators. Why, they would have had to have been flown in by the hundreds through a covert government program beginning in or accelerated by WWII! Might Major George Racey Jordan have blown the whistle on this whole operation???
