For many years, I thought you were a bit of a nut. A very INTELLIGENT nut, but a nut nonetheless. Your constant harping about Gramscian politics was, to my mind, weird a little paranoid.
It turns out you were one hundred percent right. The move to destroy America has been very below-the-surface, highly organized, and extremely effective ... and the model has been, indeed, Antonio Gramsci's.
From the work Notes on Saul Alinsky and Neo-Marxism:
Remember that the primary influence for Obama's strategy comes from Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." With that in mind..."Alinsky's tactics were based, not on Stalin's revolutionary violence, but on the Neo-Marxist strategies of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Communist. Relying on gradualism, infiltration and the dialectic process rather than a bloody revolution, Gramsci's transformational Marxism was so subtle that few even noticed the deliberate changes.
Like Alinsky, Mikhail Gorbachev followed Gramsci, not Lenin. In fact, Gramsci aroused Stalins's wrath by suggesting that Lenin's revolutionary plan wouldn't work in the West. Instead the primary assault would be on Biblical absolutes and Christian values, which must be crushed as a social force before the new face of Communism could rise and flourish. Malachi Martin gave us a progress report:
"By 1985, the influence of traditional Christian philosophy in the West was weak and negligible.... Gramsci's master strategy was now feasible. Humanly speaking, it was no longer too tall an order to strip large majorities of men and women in the West of those last vestiges that remained to them of Christianity's transcendent God."
This excerpt is the bread-and-meat section that tells me that you were prescient and well-versed in the tactics of our enemy. If there is any excuse on my part, I have only one: That which Matt Bracken refers to as the 'normality bias'. I am biased, as are most, to believe things will 'stay normal' and to discount sweeping conspiracies.
But I have awoken. Is it too late, I do not know. Can one man make a difference, I am unsure. Will it get much worse in America, absolutely.
So, this is an open letter to you to acknowledge my being incorrect, you being correct, and to ask you what a nation does to unwind this horrifying and seemingly inexorable push to Marxist/Fascist control.
Thanks! I missed the first one. Hope I can find it.
Admittedly, that post on Cloward-Piven could have been shortened or linked to a previously posted from another thread. Cloward-Piven is a major part of the demonRat's strategy for "fundamental transformation". I'll try to re-do into a shorter version with link.
Too much for me to read. If it's not said in a single paragraph, I lose interest. :) (joking)
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
to Shimmer1 for the ping
[When times are hard, we instinctively turn to God.]
It is my belief, that God has allowed certain horrific events to occur to awaken our country and other Christian nations to things to come if we don’t turn back to Him.
We have ignored His plan and we will suffer because of it. He can issue just so many warnings before He will allow ‘free countries’ to live under bondage.
He will still be there but He will be there to give Believers in Him peace to survive and die under slavery.
In other words Laz, he is not the choice of LAST resort.
Is that viewable to the subscribers of the basic GBTV/Blaze or only to the premium subscribers?
To paraphrase Paul, its about Principalities and Powers. It is the only explanation.
Laz... I swore a promise to myself that I would never post here again because of the flame wars, purges, etc. etc. And for years previous, my posts were simple for the same reaseons. However...
Thank you for posting. The insideous undermining of our foundational principles one grain at a time is real and purposeful by many, including the present administration and especially Obama. It is enabled by the myopic, the simple, and the psuedo-intellectual. I fear for all of us - real purges may be only a generation away.
I will be watching, and again... thank you.
So, the moral rot is proper subject matter for humor? I guess it's not that big a deal after all. Party on.
We need to keep this thread active.
I believe his documentaries are reserved for premium subscribers, but that doesn’t always hold true...it IS on DISH Channel 212...I’ll see if I can find out about the other.
I'm an agnostic, even I am praying.
Yes, it's giving me a cognitive dissonance headache. I'm doing it anyway.
If you are on our side, don’t let a little flame war or purge get to you, man. Remember: It’s PRINCIPLES BEFORE PERSONALITIES.
I smell popcorn ping!
Not really. Freepers are a discerning group. Theyweall get it.
It's never too late to turn back to God, either as a person or as a nation. Hence I do not think it too late for the United States.
HOWEVER, I do not think the nation will actually do so. In what may have been the defining moment for our nation, the Democrat Party has even denied God three times.
Here is where you and I may differ: I believe the Holy Spirit has put a “message” in the heart of God's sheep. That message is one of enormous impending trouble. Millions of Americans have “heard” it. It is not in the form of words, but in the form of a powerful sense of unease. We feel compelled to “do something”, even though we do not know exactly what that “something” might be.
Hence some of us have become “preppers”. Whether that will do any good or not is currently unknown. But I am unwilling to “party on” while the Titanic sinks. I'm trying to find enough stuff that floats to strap together a life raft for me and my family.
I can also say with certainty that the large majority of “preppers” are Christians with the same sense of dread that I have. Perhaps when this is over we will look back and realize the result was a separation of the wheat from the chaff. Or perhaps not. But since I feel compelled to “do something”, I prep as best I can.
:)...thanks again for all of your work. (LOL!) THREAD BUMP!
