Posted on 01/08/2013 6:45:02 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Back in those quaint days when KGB-supported communist subversives planning to overthrow a republic had to meet in secret to discuss their operations, William Ayers and his chums reportedly opined that during the post-revolutionary period of normalization, approximately twenty-five million Americans (ten percent) would have to be executed. Today, however, I have good news: that number may now be reassessed at as low as ten million, which, when one factors in the increase in the overall American population since the original estimate was made, suggests as much as a seventy percent savings in the government's stockpile of ammunition. There's a spending reduction we can all applaud.
To refresh your memory, Mr. Ayers -- now Dr. Ayers, of course -- while a leader of the youth outreach program known as the Weather Underground, was asked by one of his cohorts, FBI informant Larry Grathwohl, about the contingencies of power should the group actually succeed in its revolutionary activities. Specifically, Grathwohl asked what might be done with that minority of the adult population that would continue to resist communism even after it had been so eloquently justified through the violent seizure of power.
The young Renaissance man -- author of the brilliantly-reasoned dope fantasy Prairie Fire, and later of some prominent works on teaching social justice to toddlers, a comic book, and one Harvard Law graduate's autobiography -- deigned to answer Grathwohl's question earnestly. "For those who continue to cling to their Bibles and their guns," he said -- oh, wait a minute, that was the Harvard Law graduate. What actually happened, according to Grathwohl, was this:
They also believed that their immediate responsibility would be to protect against what they called the counter-revolution...

I agree with this guy, but I would not limit it to public education. Any education, whether public or private, is indoctrination. Each generation tries to impose ts views and values on the next, but is never completely successful at that. Jefferson felt that it is none of our business what those who survive us do with the world after we are gone. That can be hard to accept.
As the writer points out, it seems most of the pieces are already in place.
Well written. The author is right in tracing this all back to the palmy days of the 60s (what the Europeans admiringly call the "Generation of '68") and also right in seeing that essentially, the Abbie Hoffmans and Bill Ayers of this world have already won without even needing to extinguish any of us (yet). The strategy used to be called "boring from within," IIRC. 50 years of boring have clearly paid off.
And these folks are running the gov’t now.
I expect I’ll “make the cut” from 25 to 10 million incorrigibles.
We came here from europe and elsewhere for freedom and opportunity; those who now want to stay that course are enemies of the state.
We didn’t change, something else did.
I am reading that Book RIGHT Now. I an halfway through it.
Yes, they are. And, it's all explained, clearly, in this video. It's 90 mins but the first 5 mins will have you watching the entire video.
Thanks for link.
I have a feeling the good Dr Ayers is in for a nasty suprise if and when he and his minions ever try to put their plan in action.
So, you think it might be “O.K.” to register your weapons?
“I expect Ill make the cut from 25 to 10 million incorrigibles.”
We all will. FreeRepublic is where they’ll start the list.
Where did you get that idea from?
Oh, no....not directed at you....
Just a rhetorical question for those believing registration would be harmless.
“I have a feeling the good Dr Ayers is in for a nasty suprise if and when he and his minions ever try to put their plan in action.”
Same here. Skull tiki torches came to mind to get some good out of it all, but then I remembered how bad burnt bone smells.
“One note, I will not kneel or bow before any individual on this earth.”
Not even to cut off their balls?
My mind keeps finding parallels with what is going on right now.
Especially the chapter about how the NKVD treated returning Troops in WW2.
You and me both, FRiend. I'm 32 now and one of those generations of kids who went through the halls of indoctrination. I even attending public university. How it is that I came out as a conservative is beyond my comprehension. I blame a strong Catholic upbringing.
Thus it is that public education, the gift that keeps on giving, has helped to save or create fifteen million rounds of ammunition which, in spite of previous estimates, may no longer need to be used.
It's all about education. We've seen the "unintended consequences" of Liberal education, and its now nascent in every man or woman studying "education" in college with the goal of becoming a teacher.
I recall meeting the friends of an ex-girlfriend at some point during our relationship. They were both teachers in a large metro area, and they were the haughtiest of the progressive hoi polloi. My ex was not the sharpest knife in the drawer. She was a C-student for the most part, goofed off, and she had a menial secretary job at a doctor's office. Her friends, while not denigrating their friendship with her, assumed that I was "on her level," regardless of the fact that I was a degreed professional with a well-paying job.
When we were all sitting around the kitchen table drinking, they proceeded to laud their accomplishments and how wonderful it was to be teachers and how their intellect was so superior to everyone else's. (No joke, they LITERALLY said this with a straight face.) When they asked what I did with my "bourgeois education," I proceeded to tell them that I was an engineer for a fortune 500 company. You could hear a pin drop.
Moral of the story here is that liberals are wont to laud their own accomplishments. Other liberals will pat them on the back while plotting to take them down. When they encounter someone who, from a practical sense, is higher on the chain (food, intellect, pay scale, etc.), they mentally shut down. They can't handle it. They become borderline suicidal because they realize that their comparatively menial pay and garbage work conditions aren't the utopian ideal they envisioned but the path they were walked through in public schools.
It's only in bucking the trends and coloring outside of the lines that the real greatness in life, education, and career shows itself. Liberals eat their own and denigrate the achievers. That's why they band together so tightly: they know that if the reality of their situation was made ever present, most common-sense-thinking people would abandon ship.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Irrelevant: Fight and possibly die on your feet with a weapon in hand, or Fight and survive to restore Liberty.
I suspect the word about what is going on will get out long before the first million disappear. If hell hasn't broken out by then it surely will.
Most people will sense if they are on "the list" because Americans by the millions can sense something awful coming. One need only look at the firearms and ammo flying off the shelves all over the country. Sure, some of those people will be in denial and will try and mollify The Beast but many won't be fooled into thinking there is safety in passivity.
They will eventually find out who is running "the list" and where they live. Those directing and running the Black Marias will not escape retribution.
Not even to cut off their balls?
Hang 'em upside down by their ankles for that procedure!
As I previously stated on other threads, those GIVING the orders must be high on the target list, and must KNOW IT. Terminate the nearest RAT leadership first; give their RINO enablers a fair trial before eliminating them.
Beautiful post. I have seen very similar exchanges. They truly are herd animals.
Excellent article. Dead on.
From a tall oak tree.
The philosophical and theoretical Vanguard of freedom and patriotism and Christianity I agree is FR handsdown.
Stormfront and some others flag harder. Different message.
I’m 54 and am close to weaning the calf crop- I married late.
I was raised right but went thru a phase where I rejected everything in the 70’s. God reached down and woke me back up in late ‘78.
It’s been a struggle ever since, but I’m here for the duration now.
I am amazed at how far this country has fallen in my lifetime, but it is my generation who is largely to blame, myself chief among them. Not that I was a leader of anything, but that I and others slept while the enemy steadfastly advanced...
