Posted on 09/02/2006 6:34:38 PM PDT by little jeremiah
It has been reported that Gov. Schwarzenegger caved into the persistent demands of Cultural Marxists and signed into law SB 1441. This law---a foul subversion of our Rule of Law and Constitutional rights---serves to further undermine the traditional family and parental rights by forcing extreme sex education upon children. Campaign for Children and Families in California and America (CCFAC) is outraged and appalled by Schwarzeneggers cowardly capitulation. Schwarzenegger has trampled the religious freedom to satisfy hyperactive sexual activists...Schwarzenegger is doing what Gray Davis did---trample religious freedom at the bidding of liberal activists from San Francisco and Hollywood. Hes not the lesser of two evils, hes doing evil. (Schwarzenegger Squashes Religious Freedom, Save California, 8/29/06) Americans are increasingly puzzled, infuriated, and alarmed by the nonstop erosion of their freedoms. They want to know, Whats going on and who are these Americans whore working to deprive us of our rights and freedoms?
In the The Siege of Western Civilization, Herb Meyers, former CIA analyst in the Reagan administration and one of the first scholars to predict the implosion of the Soviet Union, explains that there are three major threats to the survival of Western Christian-Judeo Civilization. The first of these is the war with radical Islam. The second is the incredible plunging birthrates throughout the West and Japan. We have stopped breeding, said Meyers, and this may well lead not only to destruction of the world economy, but to the extinction of entire populations. Nothing like this has ever happened before in the history of the world, declared Herb. Western Europe and Japan, said Meyers, are catastrophes simply waiting to happen. The third threat is what Meyers termed the second civil war being waged within America by a coalition of God-hating progressive secular humanists (socialists), and Cultural Marxists (multiculturalists). As Meyers cautioned, these revolutionaries mean to overthrow and destroy the America of our Founders and its traditional Christian-Judeo based culture.
What is Communism?
In theory, communism is a classless social system in which all productive property is owned equally by the community rather than by the individual. This system therefore requires uniformity in education, food, clothing, dwellings, job, speech, thought, and even conscience. Because everything belongs to the State---including all citizens---and all social goods are to be shared equally, polymorphous sexual fluidity plays a prominent role in an aggregate of this sort. According to communist theory, a state of social justice will have been achieved when all individuality has been subsumed into the group and all goods are shared equally.
History tells us that the earliest attempt at building a communist society took place in ancient Crete, around 1300 BC. This experiment inspired Lycurgus to set up a similar regime in Sparta. As Plutarch informs us, there was a uniform network consisting of education, gymnastics, and military training for youth of both sexes. Public meals and sleeping quarters were provided by the State and all land fairly redistributed. Plutarch observed that because people themselves are viewed as property of the State, no man was at liberty to live as he pleased, the city being like one great camp where all had their stated allowance.
As Lycurgus was inspired by the Cretan experiment, Plato in turn, was inspired by the Lycurgus experiment. Platos ideal communist society would be ruled by philosopher kings and there would be sharing of women and children among these, eugenic breeding, marriages controlled by the state, infanticide, abortion, and strictest censorship, all aimed at moulding citizens to the ideal design of his republic. (The Theme is Freedom, M. Stanton Evans, p. 134)
In speaking of what led to the downfall of the communist Oneida Community in Oneida, New York (1848), William Hinds commented, The first step out of communism was taken when mine and thine were applied to husband and wife; then followed naturally an exclusive interest in children; then the desire to accumulate individual property for their present and future use. (American Communities, Hinds, 1902)
As revealed by Hinds, the traditional family is the foundation of personal property, which is why Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, George Lukacs and comrades sought its destruction. Likewise, its why todays Cultural Marxists are viciously attacking it and promoting sexually fluid alternatives such as polygamy and same-sex marriages. Additionally, since all goods are to be shared equallyeven sex--- and promiscuity is, therefore, a prominent feature of secularized communal societies, Christian sexual ethics such as abstinence, fidelity, and monogamy are as antithetical as are the ideas of personal property and individual rights and freedoms.
Historically, all attempts at creating communist utopias have ended in failure. On one hand, the impossible dream of eradicating social classes has inevitably birthed totalitarian ruling classes. On the other hand, communism is quite simply, abhorrent and unnatural and people in their right minds want no part of it, which is why communists in this century have slaughtered in excess of 100 million people in their insanely evil quest to force this catastrophically unnatural system upon people for their own good, of course. Seen in this light, the utopian ideal has been one of most vilely destructive fantasies to ever have infected the mind of men.
Who are the Enemy Combatants?
Worshippers of the communist principle (Cultural Marxists and secular humanists) are the enemy combatants who, while posing as patriotic Americans, are by deed waging a second civil war against the America of our Founders and traditional values Americans. With their disguises removed and their contemptible goals revealed it becomes clear as to why traditional marriage and Christianity are under a brutally relentless assault. It likewise focuses the light of truth upon the underlying motivation of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit who lashed out at parents on Nov. 2, 2005. In the ruling handed down by these black-robed totalitarians, it was declared that the upbringing of children, does not extend beyond the threshold of the school door There is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children (and) parents have no due process or privacy right to override determinations of public schools These despots, who view children as chattel of the State and parents as sperm/egg donors, emphasized that the parents, fundamental right to control the education of their children is substantially diminished. (Judicial Supremacists Lash Out at Parents, Phyllis Schlafly Report, Eagleforum, 2005)
Americas bastard childrenCultural Marxists and progressive secular humanistsare following the strategic plan for the overthrow of America that was designed by Marxist theoreticians such as George Lukacs and Antonio Gramsci of the Frankfurt Institute, a Marxist think-tank. According to plan, revolutionaries are dechristianizing America and sexualizing and dumbing-down her children while simultaneously encouraging kids to rebel against their parents. They are subverting the Rule of Law and Constitution, undermining national security and weapons-defense systems, working to erase our borders, preventing the US from drilling for much needed oil, colluding with Islamofascists, and provoking unassimilated immigrants into open rebellion. Additionally, they have created the abomination of special rights groups whose special rights are enforced by quota systems, psychopolitical sensitivity and diversity training, Stalinist speech codes and fascist hate-crime laws. All of the aforementioned lend themselves to the disintegration of society and the unleashing of chaos necessary prerequisites for revolution.
Until the advent of Christ---creator of mankind and Author of individual and political freedom---history was essentially a dog-eat-dog world. It was a survival of the fittest world in which the common man dwelt in fear and submission to his government. Power flowed from the gods and goddesses to predatory kings, emperors, and monarchs and then they did whatever they wanted and told the people what they could or could not have in terms of freedoms and privileges.
The greatest revolution in the history of the world---the American Revolution---radically changed the tyrannical top-down model. Americas Revolution led to the creation of something wholly unique---a Constitutional Republic where power flowed from God---our Creator---to all of the people, hence the term, we the people. Nowhere in the world but in America do we the people---empowered by our Creator---tell the government what it is allowed to do.
Its in the Genesis account---where God made man in His own image and gave him dominion over the earth---where the all important and immutable first principles of life and liberty come from. In the Declaration of Independence these principles are expressed thusly, that all people are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
These immutable first principles are exposited upon and made secure by the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Rule of Law. Our rights and liberties---when rightly exercised within the limitations of moral discipline--- lead to the creation of a dynamic, prosperous society in which decency, safety, families, free markets, innovation, and creativity flourish for the good of all.
The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity those general principles are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God; and that those principles of liberty are as unalterable as human nature. (Works, Vol. x. pp.45-46, Thomas Jefferson, June 28, 1813)
On behalf of a phantasmagorical utopia that exists only within the collective mind of the chronically disconnected-from-reality Left, Cultural Marxists and their allies---both national and internationalare waging an all-out revolution to overturn the American Revolution and thereby destroy the America bequeathed to us by our Founders.
The wholesale destruction of the highest, most advanced form of civilization the world has ever seen is happening because, Weve forgotten what Western civilization is, said Meyers, we no longer teach it in the schools. Our culture is Western Civilization. This is who we are, explained Herb Meyers. We need to understand what Western Civilization is all about, such as the rule of law, human rights, and economic liberty, and above all we need to teach this to our children.
Western Civilization is completely bound to our Creator. He it is who endows us with our inalienable individual rights and liberties. Thus it is of the highest priority that we not only prevent Cultural Marxists and their atheist brethren---some of whom are even on the Right--- from finishing the job of severing Christianity from our government and culture, as theyve so insidiously done, but that we repair the damage done by them. For if they succeed in finishing the job, Western Civilization will end and brutal tyranny unlike anything the world has yet experienced will commence.
Let us heed the prophetic advice of Daniel Webster who cautioned, Hold on my friends to the Constitution and the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6000 years may not happen again. Hold onto the Constitution, for if the American constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.

What the heck, I can still do it - it didn't hurt a bit! Sorry about no color or hyperlinks. Even more busy than usual today. I hope all you listees are well and happy!
Another article by Linda Kimball.
(If any of you see any of her other articles, could you add "lindakimball" as a keyword? I didn't do it on all of them and I wish I had.)
Sorry, listees, for the double ping. I thought maybe wagglebee was taking the day off!
There's no doubt that Schwarzenegger really wimped out to score points with voters who are economically conservative but left wing on everything else. I don't think that he really believes in the bill that he signed, but took the advice of his skittish staff. If I'm not mistaken, his Chief of Staff is a liberal Democrat.
He made a terrible mistake. However, what do you think would happen if Phil Angelides were Governor?
I'm sure that a Roman or Athenian would have been surprised to hear that.
Nowhere in the world but in America do we the people---empowered by our Creator---tell the government what it is allowed to do.
I'm sure that Canada would be surprised to hear that.
When I saw this, I thought of you two.
California Conservatives, please, stand up for Conservatism and rid us of this communist wolf dressed in sheeps clothing. Don't stay home on election day and don't vote for Ahnold because he has an "R" beside his name.

good read pass it on to friends later ping...
Those who find Arnold a disappointment should reflect on what a Rudy Guiliani - even less a "conservative" than Arnold - would do if he became President.
I think Phil Angelides would have signed the bill.
Many references were made in the post to religion. Will my fellow FReepers forgive me if I deliver a biblical homily that clearly illustrates how the early Christians discovered why communism (small "C") was inimical to the human nature we all share?
Acts 2:45 begins...
"The faithful all lived together and owned everything in common; they sold their goods and possessions and shared out the proceeds among themselves according to what each one needed."
Socialist or communist Utopia -- Right? Let's allow for the passage of time and experience and scroll forward to Acts 5:1ff.
"There was another man, however, called Ananias. He and his wife, Sapphira, agreed to sell a property; but with his wife's connivance he held back part of the proceeds, and brought the rest and presented it to the apostles."
This biblical episode simply but clearly shows why such communal efforts to establish a "perfect society" are at variance with the very nature granted to human kind.
Relative to Arnold, he's always been a social liberal so none should be surprised. In a state where wrapping a cucumber in a condom before a class of young students is considered "mainstream" sex education... what's left?
As Theodore Dalrymple said, where "anything goes" -- eventually everything does!
I wish Arnold was never governor. There are no movies with him. :( I like him a lot as an actor. I miss him in movies. I liked Total Recall, Terminators, and The Running Man.
Look at the groundswell of support for Rudy on FR.
Not really a groundswell. Just the Repub Rhino element that lurks on FR.
Well, while I appreciate the sentiments she's expressing, she needs to maybe switch to decaf.
Her claims about communism are also wrong (it doesn't mandate identical education, for example), and rather sloppy errors like that take away from the argument. I suspect most people who think she's a good writer know even less than she does though, so she's hitting her target audience in any event.
Platos ideal communist society would be ruled by philosopher kings and there would be sharing of women and children among these, eugenic breeding, marriages controlled by the state, infanticide, abortion, and strictest censorship, all aimed at moulding citizens to the ideal design of his republic.
There's nothing new under the sun, is there?
The poster's statement is generally correct. Ancient Greece limited citizenship and voting to naturalized males. The Roman empire limited political participation to men of the property owning "nobility" whose membership was often subject to fees and duties. In Ancient Greece and Rome the majority of of the population weren't even considered citizens. For over 225 years egalitarianism has best been defined by the American constitution and experience. Others can talk about it but we did it first and best.
I know this thread isn't an education thread, per se, but it does address the topic and seems like an impertant article that needs to be seen, especially considering it's the educational system that is one of the tools being used by these groups. Pretty alarming stuff.
His chief of staff is not only a liberal Democrat, but an out and proud homosexual.
California Cultural Marxism MUST-READ
My view of history is a little different from hers; the extremely ancient Vedic culture was highly enlightened and derived rights and values from the Supreme. The Manu Samhita is an incredible work, for instance, outlining rights and responsiblities, as well as crimes and proper punishments.
1861-1865 was the War of Northern Aggression.
Unless of course we should count the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s/1970s as the first Civil War.
Think this one might qualify for your political ping list?
Right, nothing new. It's all been said and done before.
Bums and deviates are the front line shock troops attacking God's moral precepts. Tell them the truth about their nasty behavior, don't subsidize/mainstream it...
Sorry - little bone to pick. America's government was less "democratic" than Athens in every regard until sexual and property ownership requirements were dispensed with - not until 1920. In fact, the republican government we have right now (lower 'r') is less democratic, as Athenians were essentially drafted into political positions. Which might not be so bad given how bad our politicians are.
Except that sticking flowers in guns doesn't really count as war.
I am also appalled by Schwarzeneggers cowardly capitulation, but then you know the old saying, the husband is the head and the wife is the neck and the neck turns the head.
heavy philosophy bump........
I actually like it better without the graphics on the ping list.
I'm not even sure it was cowardly capitulation, I think it's where his heart is. He probably liked signing it, agreed with it.
Freaking RINOs. Sickening.
I'm good for no graphics! Haven't learnt any html except for bold, italics and paragraph and don't have time for the forseeable future!
save for reference
'Egalitarianism' of course meaning 'white males only' for the majority of those 225 years. Women only got the vote in 1920, and the 24th Amendment was only ratified in 1964.
(Add 'landowning' as well for some 80 years as well.)
And the ones leading this American Civil War against US and our GOD-given Freedoms:
GEORGE SAROS, HILLARY RODHAM, BILL CLINTON and their Shadow Party that has already hijacked the Democrat Party of JFK
Question is: Are we gonna let them hijack the rest of US..???
Well, don't blame me, I voted for McClintock. And I will not vote for arnold this year. I will vote but leave the governor box blank.
Remarkable and excellent article.
True but Guiliani would never sell anyone out. He is who he is. He wouldn't pretend to be conservative on issues when he really isn't. Arnold did.
Also please see metmom's post #27. This article does address the education issue.
This ping list is for the "other" articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. If you want on/off this list, please freepmail me. The main Homeschool Ping List by DaveLoneRanger handles the homeschool-specific articles.
It should. I'm waiting to find another noteworthy article for a multiple ping. Thank you.
