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.
Be well, FRiend.
Which sells the car?
What really got me was when he likened the system to a “top” and that once the key people were in place (media, academia,etc) it just kept spinning on it’s own. One generation contaminating the minds of the next.
OK, I thought you forgot to put the /s but wasn’t sure...
And me too!

Like it won't if you try to stuff the whole elephant down one man's gullet at one sitting?
Here's a tip, give 1000 men one slice of elephant and two pieces of bread.
That’s not the answer.
The answer is instilling the ideals of freedom and individual liberty back into people.
Earlier this week, you were insulting United States Marines. You also joked about being satan’s son. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
What’s this “whole elephant” stuff? I almost always only post excerpts and links. Like it or not, this is a complex subject (communists trying to hijack our system). We are all adults here. Spoon-feeding is for infants and toddlers.
Can it be?
The great Laz is confessing to an error?
Who will we look up to now?
Where’s my shoes?
Where’s my shaving razor?
Where’s my thermos?
Yet, you asked to be on the Rage Monkey Ping List.
Perhaps I am a guilty pleasure, no? ;)
...and I’m not going to vote for Rick Perry either...
Ooooo. Way to twist the knife. LOL ;)
Twist the knife? Into someone who's contributed more info of value to this site in one day than you have in all your years here.
Alright then. Kindly post a link to any of the editorials you have written for this forum, thread spambot.
To be succinct: if you insist on continuing to be a jerk, then I have no more to say to you.
G'day sir. null-and-void, fire at will.
Slow down turbo.
See post #38, #88, #91, #107 and #119.
What sells the Corvette? Two or three simple points, or pages of technical minutia?
Presentation is important.
Which does a restaurant serve:
Drinks, appetizers, soup, salad, a main course, side orders, desert and then coffee or drinks.
or a vat with all of the above mashed together?
Which would you buy:
A scorched chunk of dead flesh oozing fluids and covered in fungus
A juicy steak done just the way you like it smothered in mushrooms?
Break it down into easily enjoyed and absorbed bits, sell the sizzle, not the steak.
Yes, we're all adults here, yes we vote, and yes most of the people not on FR who do vote need some spoon feeding.
God knows they get the liberal side in sound bites. Face it, sound bites work on most voters.
Using tools that are proven to work for each job is smarter than trying to get that nifty left-handed reverse snamelfrachtet adjustment pin wrench to do all jobs.
I ate a whole elephant once. I was so stuffed I couldn’t move. And then the rest of the herd came back and stomped me to death. Boy did I learn my lesson.
Theres no nice way to put it. Theres no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Theres no happy ending for conservatism in the US. Its over. Our country will fall for its rejection of the Lord. Physical or economic captivity is in the forecast.
But there is good news. As a God thing, the return of Jesus Christ will occur. Christ will return and establish a true, one world, peaceful government and will physically rule over all nations and teach us how were supposed to live.
This was all foreordained before the foundations of the Earth. We are in the Last Days, the End Times predicted in Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation. It began with Nimrod and Semiramis, Ahab and Jezebel and carries thru with 0bama and Moochelle. We will soon witness Petrus Romanus introducing the Beast to the world and the creation of the One World Religion and the One World Government. Time is short and the Trumpet will soon sound. Put not your trust in men but in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
