Is The Cloward-Piven Strategy Being Used To Destroy America?
alt-market.com ^ | 7/3/14 | Brandon Smith

In the mid-sixties at the height of the “social revolution” the line between democratic benevolence and outright communism became rather blurry. The Democratic Party, which controlled the presidency and both houses of Congress, was used as the springboard by social engineers to introduce a new era of welfare initiatives enacted in the name of “defending the poor”, also known as the “Great Society Programs”. These initiatives, however, were driven by far more subversive and extreme motivations, and have been expanded on by every presidency since, Republican and Democrat alike. At Columbia University, sociologist professors Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven introduced a political strategy in 1966 in an article entitled 'The Weight Of The Poor: A Strategy To End Poverty'. This article outlined a plan that they believed would eventually lead to the total transmutation of America into a full-fledged centralized welfare state (in other words, a collectivist enclave). The spearpoint of the Clowan-Piven strategy involved nothing less than economic sabotage against the U.S.

Little bath house barry bastard boy is a child of the Alinsky model. He is using the Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm infrastructure in the Southern States which oppose his regime. It is not even in question since it was discovered that his admin/regime worked with other nations to plan the invasion of the disease riddled children now flooding into America and overwhelming the healthcare systems in Texas, Arizona and elsewhere.

Yes it is.

See what liberal politicians and prosecutors do to American citizens who defend themselves, their families and their property with force when the illegal aliens invade their cities. That will be very enlightening.

You will have to defend yourself against your own LE as well as the illegal aliens that overrun your town.

The question is not whether America is being being destroyed. Sadly, that is a fait accompli. The question is will you survive it?

I just posted this on a thread (by Jim Rob)-

History will judge Obama (+Reed and Pelosi) as deliberate traitors who conspired to cause a foreign invasion into the USA to completely overwhelm it’s resources as per Cloward-Pivein. We might have already had our last Presidential election.

The MOST salient point made on this thread.

Ddi you people really have to wonder what those billions of rounds of hollow point bullets and those APCs and tanks being sent for free to police departments were for?

Obama is igniting and forcing a response, so he can do what every Marxist regime in history has done: make the streets run with the blood of their political enemies.

Obama wins now whether we do nothing, or if we do something. He is just looking for the excuse - and he knows at some point - some American somewhere is going to give him the "justification" he think he needs to unleash his militarized police forces and DHS upon.

And believe you me - they are itching to do some killing of Conservative Christians whom they have been indoctrinated to hate.

And Obama has thousands if not millions of illegals to fill his ranks should he make such a plea for help.

I’m sorry to say that I think the same thing. It didn’t last long enough. But I have a feeling the Founders wouldn’t be surprised. Remember what Franklin told that woman who asked what we had - “A republic, if you can keep it.” He understood that a republic HAS to be kept with vigilance. We have allowed it to slip away.

The massive influx of illegals across the border since last fall is the direct result of Obama’s planning and strategy. This mess is classic Cloward-Piven. Create chaos, overwhelm the existing system to collapse it and then rebuild it into your own image. People who don’t connect the obvious dots with this strategy, which Obama studied as a young radical, are naive to the bigger picture of what is going on with these illegals overwhelming the southern border states and others.

If you think Obama is going to stop this mess, you need only look at his planned visit to Texas next week for the answer. One would think with this crisis erupting, he would be touring some of the centers where the illegals are housed and visit the border and, maybe meet with Gov. Rick Perry. Well, you would be wrong. He is going for a fund-raiser for democRATS. Leading is not something he knows how to do when it comes to governing.

The Cloward Piven strategy intends to create chaos, which is its deepest flaw. How can its adherents be so sure that they can win during the chaos, which by definition, is beyond control.

Because some if they can not rule would rather pull you down into hell with them. Many people seem to be unable to grasp that there are such people in this world. I in a way I understand if from the left, but from the right and especially FReepers it is beyond my understanding. Melville understood:

"to the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee."
