Many of you may be familiar with a new movement sweeping our nation, and, if you are less than thirty-two, they claim to be speaking for you. Just like Paul Revere warned the earliest Americans that the British were indeed coming, I am warning you today that change is coming, and at the expense of everything we stand for.
This new movement known as Generation WE is a movement that blatantly spreads full-scale communist ideals via a largely youthful and diverse mouthpiece. They claim to be momentously (and in my opinion dangerously) non-partisan and are looking for real change (I guess they didnt get it in 08).
The group categorizes themselves as being strongly progressive several times throughout its duration. What astounds me most is the fact that that eight to ten year olds have allegedly come to embrace such worldly progressivism all by themselves. I thought that most children were more interested in cartoons and candy than in learning of progressive ideas and politics. I guess times have changed.
This claim of non-partisanship is completely bogus and those who support it are clearly evidenced on the Generation We website, where you can find a list of endorsements for the movement.
Muhammad Yunus, a man who was heralded for starting the Grameen Bank. This bank practices baseless injections of credit to those who do not have the means of re-paying in order to bolster the economy in Bangladesh. Sound familiar? It should, this is the same logic from which the housing crisis was created.
Van Jones, who was the former Green Jobs Czar until his affiliation in the 9/11 Truth movement caused him to resign, has been openly pushing socialist agendas in the United States for a very long time. In his latest venture, Rebuild the Dream, he has instituted a new contract for America. In this contract things like a tax on all stock trades, Medicare for all and a new tax bracket on those making over one million dollars a year are advocated.
The list continues with Harry Reid, Adriana Huffington, and many others. This video is the Communist Manifesto revisited.
As we continue our dissection of this video, we also find that there are several other faulty Obama policies. The first being an argument that the United States has the highest child poverty level in the developed world. According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, children living in homes that make less than $22,050 dollars per year are considered in poverty. However, they go on to say it is estimated that it costs double that to provide for all basic needs which, in turn, raises the rate to 42% of all children.
While child poverty is a problem, I highly doubt that it effects nearly half of our population. As I recall, we have several programs in our welfare system that are designed to eliminate child poverty. Children are eligible for state run medical care and various food and monetary programs like WIC and welfare. So with all of these programs available, how, may I ask, is the poverty rate still forty-two percent?
The environment was not spared from this diatribe either. The video claims that, in my lifetime, fifty percent of my generation will be diagnosed with cancer and one third with diabetes. Really? Fifty percent of my generation will have cancer? Are they seriously implying that eight-three percent of the human population will be struck with debilitating disease in the next seventy-five years? At no time in history of the developed world, not even in the days of the bubonic plague, has disease ever flourished like that. Nonetheless, theyve found a bunch of innocent kids to spout off these irresponsibly incorrect numbers to take emotional hostages.
One issue that I found almost comical was their call for an end to all military action. Where does this idea that, if we just stop fighting, world peace will flourish come from? In the same breath they talk about a just and sustainable world. Vegetius, a Roman military author, once said, If you want peace, prepare for war. How do you have justice and peace without war first?
The video also paints baby boomers in a very negative light. Most, if not all, of the major job-producing industries in America are run and have been made possible through baby boomer money and labor. Within this same video, there is talk of squandered inherence and high national debt; at the end of the film they talk about wanting billions to find new fuel sources. Are we mad that we are ten trillion dollars in debt or do we want to further spend on capitalist ventures? Im confused.
The complete lack of authenticity in regards to this message tells me that the leadership group behind this video is about one thing: pushing a socialist agenda amongst the youth of America by infecting a small portion and watching it spread. This is truly the most dangerous form of peer pressure. Needless to say, I have a profound disrespect for the people behind this message, and I can only pray that this indoctrination doesnt take hold among our youth.
Towards the end of the video, one of the speakers makes the remark that we as Generation We will have the power to control the landscape of America. I sure as hell hope they dont.

And some people think schools don’t teach progressive ideas and politics.Far to many progressive teachers in the system,guess how many love Obama&Co.
Name one other vocation that pays as well without ever having to be held accountable.
Welcome to FR, blogger Mark Mayberry.
“And some people think schools dont teach progressive ideas and politics.”
This is why I think America, as I knew it, is doomed.
The Marxist control education, K through Grad School.
They also control the media and entertainment.
How can one expect the youth of America to NOT become red diaper doper babies?
I would say weatherman, but that doesn’t pay as well.
Good report Mark Mayberry! Thanks for being there...and WELCOME ABOARD here!
Generation WE...another collective in a coalition of collectives. It’s how they roll over us and demand things from us. We, the collectives of the United States of America...
Thanks for naming names of the usual socialists (Muhammad Yunus...that’s a new one to watch).
DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.
Hi! I see you just joined FR and this is your first post.
Why don’t you post your article in full, just to show all your new found FRiends here that you’re really not just another pimp looking to get hits off of FR’s great traffic?
Very good point. My wife says the more “toys” you give to weathermen the worse they do. When you think about it, the same could apply to teachers.
If you posted your whole blog here, I would read it.
Kids love it because kids have nothing. When you have nothing, the idea of everybody sharing what they have sounds pretty good.
When kids think of sharing they mean they want to play with your toys and have some of your candy. It is rare for a kid to offer his stuff to another.
When I look out over the political landscape and the state of this country, I can not help but conclude that we are already way down the road to communism, we just do not realize it. To use the popular term, we have already ‘jumped the shark’ and are now on the backside of the slide to communism? The only thing that remains is to tell the American people that they have been had? Stealth has been the order of the day up to this point, but Obama’s speech in Kansas was the watershed moment where he effectively told us that this country has been overtaken. For many of us, it just has not sunk in yet. The stark realization will come following the November 2012 elections. If Obama does not “win” reelection through rigging the election process, he will immediately claim race based voter fraud on his opponent, fire up an Odinga style national uprising, declare martial law in the wake of this chaos, and refuse to turn the office over to his ‘crooked and corrupt’ opponent in January of 2013.
He does that and commies will become an endangered species nation wide.
“If Obama does not win reelection through rigging the election process, he will immediately claim race based voter fraud on his opponent, fire up an Odinga style national uprising, declare martial law in the wake of this chaos, and refuse to turn the office over to his crooked and corrupt opponent in January of 2013.”
That sounds quite bizarre and unlikely, but I would not rule it out.
They are so close to taking the brass ring, it will take more then the defeat of Obamma the Commie to save America.
The only good thing is this education system can’t teach
“The only good thing is this education system cant teach”
Well, it sure can teach young skulls full of mush to be
good little Communist, and to support the dear leader.
They say that children are the future but they soon become adults and by that time another generation comes along and now it’s still all about the children. Then THEY become adults and STILL, it’s ALL about the children. Do you see how that works?
They haven’t lived under real communism. Wait until they can’t drive a car, use their cell phones, watch a movie, watch tv, talk on the phone, go to the mall, be with their friends.
Wait until they have to march together, live together, no real school, not enough to eat and no heat, a/c etc.
And wait until they are told what to do 24 hours a day. I mean they can’t walk up leave the room.
