Can They Be Stopped?
scottfactor.com ^ | 01/28/2013 | Gina Miller

Posted on 01/28/2013 4:00:48 PM PST by scottfactor

A truly scary and terribly frustrating aspect of the in-your-face communist takeover of Americais the fact that perhaps half (or more) of the American population can’t see it. There are plenty of wide-awake American patriots who are watching in stunned amazement at the blatantly criminal actions of Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and his lawless administration. But, there are so many other Americans who are oblivious to it.

When regarding the dullness of the masses of disengaged or otherwise ignorant and deceived Americans, I am often reminded of the opening verses of one of the songs on Pink Floyd’s 1977 concept album Animals. The song “Sheep,” with its irreverent, creepy mockery of the 23rd Psalm, opens with these verses:

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away,

Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.

You better watch out!

There may be dogs about!

I've looked over Jordan and I have seen

Things are not what they seem.

What do you get for pretending the danger's not real?

Meek and obedient you follow the leader

Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel.

What a surprise!

A look of terminal shock in your eyes!

Now things are really what they seem.

No, this is no bad dream!

 

Like sheep set for slaughter, far too many Americans have embraced apathy and ignorance. Apathy and ignorance have allowed the evil-minded enemies of America to cement their power. People who exist in ignorance and apathy are poised for tyranny. We can blame the pitiful government-run, public school mis-education or distracted parents for creating generations of dumbed-down, apathetic citizens, but ultimately American society as a whole has turned from God’s moral—and actual commonsense—truths to disastrous moral relativism, which is no morality at all. Whether we agree with it or not, America has chosen the dark path it’s on.

Some of us wonder how all of America is not up in arms over the purely evil—yes, evil—members of this administration and Congress, who are hell-bent on dismantling the very foundations and freedoms of our representative Republic. We can see it so clearly, so why can’t everyone else? Of course, there are numerous answers to that question, and most of them lead back to ignorance, apathy, deception and even agreement with the dastardly principles of the treacherous, communist Left.

So, can this wicked administration be stopped? How can Obama and his buddies be held accountable for their criminal actions? We certainly know that the Republicans are scared to death of these Chicago thugs. Their actions—or inaction, rather—tell us this. We know that judges all across the country are scared to death of them, at least those who do not already agree with them. So, who does that leave to stop their lawless actions? Good question.

Don’t tell me that The People can gather inWashington and demand anything! What did the communists in power do when millions of Tea Party patriots arose and marched on American cities and Washington in 2009 and 2010? They left town and turned a deaf ear, and the rats in the media pretended not to notice the massive Tea Party turnouts. What about when we flood the phones, faxes and emails of our so-called representatives? How do you like getting those generic form letters in reply that say, “Thank you for expressing your opinion. Now, stick it in your pipe and smoke it”?

This is not to say that we should stop letting them hear from us. Of course not! But, I’m looking for real solutions for stopping these leftist enemies of America, and real solutions evade me, especially now that it seems the Left has cornered the market on election fraud.

If we look back on the last hundred years, we can see that the communists have been infiltrating all our institutions—our schools, our federal, state and local governments, our military, our “entertainment” industry, everywhere that power and influence are to be had. The communists (for that is what they are) have a major lead on us America-cherishing constitutionalists. We now see that with the installation of Obama in our presidency, the communist infiltration is complete. And, with his second term afoot, we are witnessing a no-holds-barred enemy assault on our nation.

We are seeing the assault on our God-given right of self defense with Obama’s criminal, anti-Second Amendment executive orders and the congressional push to ban certain guns and all but low-capacity ammunition magazines. All this is happening while the government itself is procuring billions of rounds of ammunition and thousands of rifles for the Department of Homeland Security. What are they planning on American soil? We can surely imagine, and it’s not good.

We are seeing the insanity of congressional attempts, by both Democrats and worm Republicans, to grant amnesty to illegal aliens—this, after Obama’s criminal executive order doing the same thing just prior to the last “election.” Who will stop them?

We are seeing Obama’s lawless Environmental Protection Agency waging a war against our own energy supplies under the Marxist ruse of “saving the planet” from the global warming hoax. Who will resist them?

We are seeing Obama siding with the enemies of America in the Middle East, and going so far as to allow our own Ambassador and three other Americans to be murdered by Muslim animals on September 11th in Libya. Not only has Obama not allowed our men to go in and annihilate the Muslim terrorists who did this, but he is going forward with his gift of our military’s war planes and millions of dollars of our money to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Who will stop him?

We are seeing the destruction of our military. These commie dirtbags have done all they can to drive out the patriots and install their own people in military leadership. They have broken down the rational prohibition of openly homosexual people serving, and now they have taken the ludicrously insane step of permitting women to serve in combat.

We are under a daily barrage of outrages coming from this administration and the tools and goons in Congress. There is no doubt that this is certainly by design, intended to keep us off-balance and in distress at the overwhelming flood of sick-as-Hell, lawless power on display by these seemingly unstoppable dictators inWashington.

Can they be stopped? I don’t know. The hearts and minds of too many of the American people are inundated and swayed by leftist media and entertainment propaganda, and the Left is winning its misinformation war. This is a huge deficit for conservatives. The leftist media message machine has a near-monopoly on American households. How do we reach the sheeple with our message of what Americais supposed to be and what true freedom means, and the truth about where the communist Left’s plans will ultimately lead?

I don’t have the answers. But, I am certain of one thing: we no longer have the “luxury” of sitting idly by and watching the world go ‘round. It has come to the point that we must resist or be assimilated. We must resist this lawless federal government and its unconstitutional edicts. The federal government has come completely untethered from the constitutional bonds on its power. This is a lawless President and a lawless administration being aided by a criminally negligent Congress and judicial branch.

Our remaining outlet—short of starting at the bottom to retake our institutions at this late hour—is to resist, and spread the word. We must not allow ourselves to be disarmed and silenced. Tyranny is at our doorstep. We must not give our nation over to it. We must firmly resist this tyranny, or we can kiss our country and our freedoms goodbye forever.

The song lyrics were formatted properly in my original column copy and do not appear as they do in the post above:

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away,
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air. You better watch out!
There may be dogs about!
I've looked over Jordan and I have seen
Things are not what they seem.

Meanwhile, the public education system's labor union-controlled teachers are ordered to produce 'POLITICALLY INDIFFERENT' graduates who are taught to accept everything their government does to them, without question.

'Question authority' only applies when Republicans are in charge.

We are Kevin McCarthy in The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, raging at the people to wake up. But they either think we're crazy or have already been taken over. That movie is the best allegory for the marxist long march through our institutions ever made.

Bullsh!t.

The Americans I know are armed and just waiting for Obama, the Left and their Communist brethren to strike the first physical blow.

We are not waiting for a shot to be fired...we are just waiting for them to try and confiscate our weapons.

There is no doubt it will come to blows...and battle.

For God's sake...get ready.

The collective game plan was set by ‘progressives’ in the Woodrow Wilson along with FDR generation. However, it was the lefty baby boomers who real took the communist ball and ran with it.

Lefty Baby-Boomers —the Clintons, Pelosi, Obama etc are America’s Curse.

re: “Meanwhile, the public education system’s labor union-controlled teachers are ordered to produce ‘POLITICALLY INDIFFERENT’ graduates who are taught to accept everything their government does to them, without question.”

Not totally true because several states are right to work states (Wisconsin just became one) and teachers are not required to join the union.

Your point is much more accurate in regard to colleges and universities - and they are not union controlled. I am not supporting unions at all - they are pond scum. But, the colleges and universities have been Marxist controlled in social studies, history departments, environmental science departments, AND the education departments for nearly 80 years - and this is happening on so-called “Christian” college campus’s as well.

One Marxist professor indoctrinates thousands and thousands of young 20 year olds who graduate with the marxist world-view, who then enter the work force in so many areas of “expertise”.

Public schools certainly are part of the problem, but change the training of the future teachers, and you will change the way teachers teach and what their world views are.

If you want to make inroads to public schools, the colleges and universities MUST be cleared of Marxist profs in all the departments.

Honestly, though, I don’t see any real change because the underlying problem with our nation is sin. It’s what’s inside the person. The only real hope our country has is a God given revival. There is no common view of morality anymore - we have no common foundations anymore. Our institutions have all been inundated by leftwing, anti-Christian bias.

It so permeates our society I don’t see anything short of a miracle changing it. Some talk of revolution, but we couldn’t even agree on a candidate to support against Obama let alone finding common goals to promote in a real revolution. Once violence starts like that, ANYTHING could happen and probably more to the negative than to the positive unless we were very, very, very fortunate.

Local law enforcement and Federal agencies are conducting "joint task force training" in the deserts of Texas and along the southeast coasts of Florida already! They're flying MH-6 Little Birds and firing blanks from chain guns attached to them.

There exists absolutely NO excuse or reason to warrant these sorts of training exercises, and the fact they are happening should be setting off flashing red sirens in the minds of every American who favors liberty.

It's only a matter of time before FReepers mysteriously stop posting. It'll be one or two of us at first, then large swaths. They're not going to be overt and public about this. They're going to imprison as many of us as possible to start, then go the confiscation route, and eventually they'll "Waco" anyone who's left.

Our only hope is that conservative governors across the US publicly call to muster their respective state militias. Start Committees of Correspondence if you can, and get like-minded Americans together to protect and defend your neighborhoods. Otherwise, it will get to the point of neighbors turning in neighbors for "violations," and we're all going to become subjects akin to the "Observers" in Fringe.

No, it's not bull-. I'm talking about the millions of sleepwalkers, Rooster, not conservative patriots like you and me and many of the people we know who will resist the tyranny.

Look at the Obamatons and the rest of the apathetic and ignorant. That's who I'm talking about.

Well, of course you are right about the sheep. They have been successfully invaded by the body snatchers...they are goners, the walking dead.

It seems this surreal war is between two separate dimensions (one which is mature enough to understand reality/life...and one which hasn't got nor will ever get...a clue).

Love that...Mike and the Mechanics.

Reminds one of the theories of Julian Jaynes...except that I believe the bicameral mind condition never ceased.

It only ceased for those who stopped listening for the voice of God. Those who listened for the voice of God still heard it, however more faintly.

And those others who no longer heard God (or even gods) as an auditory hallucination...now heard a voice which spoke but then told the listeners they heard the truth, but the speaker didn't exist (this was Satan's greatest trick).

I have those dreams at once a week. Last week I dreamed I awoke in a hospital, but had no recollection of why I was there.

Standard Karl Jung free-floating anxiety...Obama/Communist anxiety.

Dreams may not be real, but they are real symbols of the perverse reality of our current world.

May the Righteous know victory...and may the unrighteous meet with God's judgment.

In the meantime...see my new tagline.;-)

Satan runs the earth right now.

We need a massive assist against him, right now.

But, man proposes, God disposes.

I’ve been pleading with God that we’re the last country likely to advance his will - which is vanity for me to even ask.

I kinda expect a lightning strike over that.

But all I can do is beg him, pray for reversal.

Too bad Luther threw out the Book of Wisdom

1:16, But the godless call for Death with deed and word, counting him friend, they wear themselves out for him; with him they make a pact, worthy as they are to belong to him.

2:1, And this is the false argument they use, ‘Our life is short and dreary, there is no remedy when our end comes, no one is known to have come back from Hades.

2 We came into being by chance and afterwards shall be as though we had never been. The breath in our nostrils is a puff of smoke, reason a spark from the beating of our hearts;

3 extinguish this and the body turns to ashes, and the spirit melts away like the yielding air.

4 In time, our name will be forgotten, nobody will remember what we have done; our life will pass away like wisps of cloud, dissolving like the mist that the sun’s rays drive away and that its heat dispels.

5 For our days are the passing of a shadow, our end is without return, the seal is affixed and nobody comes back.

6 ‘Come then, let us enjoy the good things of today, let us use created things with the zest of youth:

7 take our fill of the dearest wines and perfumes, on no account forgo the flowers of spring

8 but crown ourselves with rosebuds before they wither,

9 no meadow excluded from our orgy; let us leave the signs of our revelry everywhere, since this is our portion, this our lot!

10 ‘As for the upright man who is poor, let us oppress him; let us not spare the widow, nor respect old age, white-haired with many years.

11 Let our might be the yardstick of right, since weakness argues its own futility.

12 Let us lay traps for the upright man, since he annoys us and opposes our way of life, reproaches us for our sins against the Law, and accuses us of sins against our upbringing.

13 He claims to have knowledge of God, and calls himself a child of the Lord.

14 We see him as a reproof to our way of thinking, the very sight of him weighs our spirits down;

15 for his kind of life is not like other people’s, and his ways are quite different.

16 In his opinion we are counterfeit; he avoids our ways as he would filth; he proclaims the final end of the upright as blessed and boasts of having God for his father.

17 Let us see if what he says is true, and test him to see what sort of end he will have.

18 For if the upright man is God’s son, God will help him and rescue him from the clutches of his enemies.

19 Let us test him with cruelty and with torture, and thus explore this gentleness of his and put his patience to the test.

20 Let us condemn him to a shameful death since God will rescue him — or so he claims.’

21 This is the way they reason, but they are misled, since their malice makes them blind.

22 They do not know the hidden things of God, they do not hope for the reward of holiness, they do not believe in a reward for blameless souls.

23 For God created human beings to be immortal, he made them as an image of his own nature;

24 Death came into the world only through the Devil’s envy, as those who belong to him find to their cost.
