Obama's a Communist: Why is it Name Calling? - ALAN KEYES
America's Independent Party ^ | March 4, 2009 | Alan Keyes

Posted on 03/04/2009 5:50:48 PM PST by EternalVigilance

"It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force." The Federalist

"With words we govern men." Benjamin Disraeli

In practice, the substance of liberty is deliberate, voluntary choice. Constrained by the threat or use of force; manipulated by lies and misinformation; herded by contrived circumstances; choice is not voluntary, and those who make it are not free. Where free choice prevails, communication is the key to persuasion. Words (including in this term the language of music and graphic images) convey facts, ideas and feelings that sway and determine the will. For those who would be free, words matter.

Understanding this, the enemies of freedom do their best to limit or eliminate words that interfere with their design for despotism. They especially seek to stigmatize and discourage the use of words freighted with the sad and tragic history of tyranny and dictatorship. That's why the use of the word 'communist' to describe Barack Obama has aroused such furious diatribe and aspersion. Call him liberal. Call him socialist. Even call him a Marxist if you will. But communist is a dirty word, a cheap shot, just resentful name calling.

Of course, it wasn't a dirty word when Marx or Engels used it to describe their ideology, or when Lenin wielded it to rally his forces on behalf of the proletariat. Marx's ponderous writings are boring and not even half-true. The bulk of people who claim and act in his name have probably never read much beyond the "Communist Manifesto." But this makes Marxism a false name, not a bad one. It took the millions murdered or dead from famine in the assault on Russia's middle class farmers (the Kulaks); it took the millions slaughter and consigned to hellish gulags during Stalin's other purges; it took the millions mobbed, defenestrated, hacked to death in Mao's cultural revolution; it took the smoking ruins of the tens of thousands slain in Kampuchea's killing fields; and so on and on, to make communism a dirty word. It took the destruction of churches, the persecution of dissidents, the use of crushing military force against unarmed civilians seeking only the dignity of their human rights; to give communists a bad name.

Given this history, it's easy to understand why folks who are looking, waddling and quacking like communists would rather we called them messiahs. Sensible people want to avoid getting caught up in the grist mill of communist tyranny. The use of the term invites them to look at its history, and this means not only the grisly results, but the path to power that let some people inflict such horrors on others. Americans have an especially good reputation for not putting their fingers into light sockets, but it doesn't take that much shrewdness to recognize the telltale signs of an approaching hurricane before it overtakes you. Lincoln showed this disposition when he looked at the actions of the pro-slavery cabal before the last Civil War.

We cannot absolutely know that all these exact adaptations are the result of preconcert. But when we see a lot of framed timbers, different portions of which we know have been gotten out at different times and places and by different workmen -- Stephen, Franklin, Roger and James, for instance -- and when we see these timbers joined together, and see they exactly make the frame of a house or a mill, all the tenons and mortices exactly fitting, and all the lengths and proportions of the different pieces exactly adapted to their respective places, and not a piece too many or too few -- not omitting even scaffolding -- or, if a single piece be lacking, we see the place in the frame exactly fitted and prepared yet to bring such a piece in -- in such a case, we find it impossible not to believe that Stephen and Franklin and Roger and James all understood one another from the beginning, and all worked upon a common plan or draft drawn up before the first blow was struck.

These days, the Obama faction's media claque derides anyone willing to imitate Lincoln's common sense as kooky, crazy, fringe, lunatic and an assortment of less cordial terms meant to scarecrow the weak minded.

But if we dare to see the obvious pattern in all of this, we're candidates for a soon to be government controlled mental hospital. Or so the Obama faction wants people to believe. Do you think they're right?

Just like in Orwell's 1984.

None dare call it Communism. Or part of a conspiracy.

Best description I've read yet.

Obie may be a lot of things. And he may not be a lot of other things. But he is a despot.

Agreed. One need only go down a bulleted list of facts, affiliations, and quotes to prove well beyond a reasonable doubt Obama’s marxist beliefs. The MSM is trying to make Alan Keyes look like a kook, when if you brush aside the rhetoric, he's right.

Well, also look at his family and associates. His grandfather was a Communist. His mother was a Communist. His childhood mentor was a Communist and a member of the KGB. Several of his close associates are Communists. And he was one of the founders of the New Party, a Communist Front organization.

This is not to speak of his relatives in Kenya. His cousin and political associate Raila Odinga is a Communist, educated in East Germany. His Kenyan grandfather was a Communist-inspired Mau Mau terrorist.

Saul Alinsky on "Change"...
From Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines his strategy in organizing, writing:

"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution."

Saul Alinsky, The Latter Rain
http://latter-rain.com/ltrain/alinski.htm
____________________________________________________________________________________

Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Exclusive: Bill Ayers Talks About Election Night in Grant Park
[Obama win brings commie Ayers to tears!]

From NBC Chicago, Jan 21, 2009:

Bill Ayers was "overflowing with happiness, relief, love" when he and his wife went to Grant Park with tens of thousands of Chicagoans to celebrate the election of President Barack Obama.

Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, spoke exclusively with NBC Chicago's Dick Johnson about why they joined the Election Night celebration in the park, where 40 years before they helped stage the Days of Rage riots.

The couple said they got last-minute tickets from a friend to be in Grant Park that night.

"I couldn't stop crying a couple of times. I found the exact spot where I was beaten 40 years ago," Ayers said. "But I've never been in a crowd that large that wasn't edged with either anger or drunkenness or gluttony, and it was really an extraordinary feeling."

"He proposes risky cutbacks in our military preparedness."

This is the hint that Obie isn't a "normal Communist".

Normal Communists want a large military so they can intimidate and/or conquer other countries.

I have believed for some time that the people who own and operate Obie, put him in the Presidency for one reason; to weaken the US, so we can be conquered.

Ayers proposed this years ago; that the US gets carved up and the pieces put under the control of other totalitarian states: China, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, etc.

I still believe that is the plan, and there are more ways to accomplish that than just a military surrender after a nuke attack.

You are dead on here but unfortunately, they’re not the only ones. The republican party had been trying to make him look like a kook for years. For the sole reason that he actually has the audacity to believe in the “Big Three” and uses them to attempt to hold their feet to the fire. God Bless him.

The 48% of the electorate, not counting the 4% of ACORN fraud, that put Beloved Leader in the Presidency, could care less if the Anointed One is a communist. Labels mean nothing to the welfare classes, the illegals, the professors in ivory towers, the ideologically bankrupt, the greens and the elitists who want a Utopian state. For myriad reasons, this morally deficient group has not participated in the American dream, democracy or the social fabric of our republic.

When I talk to these naifs, explaining this encroachment of communism and its eventual shredding of any semblance of their present way of life, they ingenuously respond, “good - we deserve to rebuild this racist, fascist country.” They are unassailable in their stupidity and they vote.

Anyone have any ideas, that are workable, to fix this mess?

Good question. It's very frustrating.

I guess the answer is that, in practice, the FBI works for the government, not for the good of the country. And the FBI is supposed to stay out of politics. Obama's Communist connections are all public knowledge, or would be if people just looked at the available facts. Perhaps if the press had not covered up for him, he would not have been elected. As Alan Keyes points out, "Communist" is still a dirty word for most people, after having seen what Communism did to its millions of victims all through the past century.

But who's going to blow the whistle on the President of the United States? About all we can do at this point is just keep telling people, which Keyes is certainly doing.

When I remember my childhood I remember an elementary school filled with teachers that loved and cared for their students... with teachers visiting for dinner on occasion... a time when a young boy like myself strived to be the best Scout a boy could be.

I remember spending time with my Dad and Grandfathers, learning to fish and hunt and the love for nature and GOD’s gifts... I remember Church on Sunday's and family gatherings afterwards... the daily reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance and the LORD’s Prayer.

I remember hearing the Beatles for the first time and gazing up at the moon while the first men... BOTH AMERICANS... walked on the moon... and I remember the solidarity of our Bicentennial... and a time when we honored past Presidents with more than one day... where you would have your ass kicked if you said one word against our Nation or GOD... where every boy wanted to be a US Marine and where cars and homes were left unlocked and secure.

I remember how America was.

I refuse to allow my youth to have been the peak of American Civilization! I will stand up for America and for every other Freedom loving person that has ever stood up for America and I will fight to see to it that our future generations have it BETTER than I had it... not to face a future of indentured servitude, due to some muzzie marxist street thug that scammed America with billions of dollars donated from anti American NWO types (soros etc) and now pillages our treasury.

I want Reagan's hopes and dreams for his America to come to fruition... for America and the World's future depends on it... for hussein’s way is the path to worldwide decay and anarchy. Rush made the path clear to us and the Conservative revolution has begun... and you are one of our commanders!

We need a MAN like General Patton or Washington to rise up and lead us. We need a leader. The man who can lead us out of this mess will deserve to be called the new father of the country. The real question is whether or not enough men will back him up.

Who is that man? I for one don’t know. In times of need GOD has always sent us help, but I can not blame him if he ignores our plight. I pray for his divine mercy while I acknowledge the fact that this country does not deserve it one bit. GOD must be really mad at this country for killing so many of his children.

It is looking more and more like old Senator Joseph McCarthy had it right; he must be turning in his grave now. He warned us, and we allowed the media to demonize him. Time has vindicated much of what he believed.

We are in for tough times my friends, and it will get a lot worse before it gets better. GOD bless all of you out there. Do not give up, remember that the best way to get back at your enemies is to be successful. It drives them crazy.

I certainly hope A.K. has 24-hour protection over the next few years.

Some preliminary suggestions for survival rules:

  1. Always have some one taste his food first;
  2. Always have someone else start his car;
  3. Never visit parks on the west side of the Potomac;
  4. Always avoid anyone carrying an umbrella;
  5. Leave IL immediately;
  6. Find and hire 2-3 doubles;
  7. Always wear a vest;
  8. Every month publish an updated health physical;
  9. Never fly using a foreign airline (particularly near Vladivostok or Dalnegorsk); and,
  10. Never shake hands with anyone outside his immediate family without wearing disposable gloves.

Purveyors of truth will not be allowed to survive in the near future. The klintoons were, it turns out, just a warm-up.

A conservative leader needs to emerge who challenges Obammunism point for point, leading conservative opposition to this socialism and for genuine economic, banking, and tax reform. They have to make the case to the American people rhetorically and logically with common sense in public discussions and congressional debates.

If the glove fits you must convict!

Another reason the libs hate the communist label, and until recently 'socialist' too, is that communism and socialism cannot coexist with our Constitution. At some point they will have to be honest and admit openly their desire to eliminate the Constitution completely.

My young cousin told me that with no embarrassment about ten years ago. About the time he was graduating from some liberal college.

I do and I think the second step is to point out that socialism/communism is fundamentally incompatible with the Constitution. It isn’t an emotional reaction as some would like to paint it. They simply can’t coexist on basic logical and pragmatic grounds. The argument that a little socialism is OK or “it works in Europe” should not be allowed to stand until it is agreed that the Constitution has to be abandoned. If they won’t concede that point then they need to be called out as liars and subversives.
