The Threat We Face
Front Page Magazine ^ | O ct. 10, 2013 | David Horowitz

Posted on 10/10/2013 7:21:36 AM PDT by libstripper

I was born at the beginning of the Second World War into a family of high school teachers who were members of the Communist Party, and therefore were actually part of a vast conspiracy dedicated to the destruction of this country, although they would never have looked at it that way, and so-called liberals would be the first to deny it.

n those days, the schools were old fashioned enough that my parents did not use their classrooms to indoctrinate students as tens of thousands of university professors and even more K-12 teachers regularly do today. It is also an unhappy but hugely important fact that the conspiracy to which my parents belonged has steadily migrated into the heart of the Democratic Party until it now occupies the Oval Office in the person of our president, Barack Obama, and his closest advisors.

Long but a MUST READ!
The four characturistics of the socialists are something
to think about, most of us know them already but never
put them all together.
Horowitz knows them.

Yes, this article is an eye opener for starry eyed Americans who believe that Democrats and Republicans are basically the same.

I have heard that it is bad form on this forum to enter vanity posts, so I don't know how to spread the word other than posting this here and hope that it spreads . . . .

I just sent the following to all of my federal representatives. I would encourage everyone else to do the same. You may freely copy what I have already composed . . . .

_____________________

If the federal government can be this petty, how much more damage can it do to private citizens when it gets full control of our health care?

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-obama-blockade.html

Please, please, be resolute. We are in another Cold War. The communists have infiltrated Congress and the White House via the Democrat party. I'm just a simple law abiding, patriotic, and voting citizen who is dependent on YOU to defend the Constitution and the original founding principles of this Republic. If you are unwilling to bear the slings and arrows of bad press, then it may be time to vote for someone who is.

We cannot keep spending more than we take in. We cannot allow the federal government to control our health care. We cannot allow millions of law breakers citizenship. You must begin to reign in the abusive control of us by the federal government via the IRS, NPS, DHS, NSA, EPA, BLM, and a myriad of acronyms that all add up to more control over us plain citizens. Stop the madness NOW!

Horowitz is a battle-tested veteran of the culture wars. He’s the classic liberal who got mugged by the ugly reality of left-wing politics, and has sworn eternal hostility to their advance.

A comprehensive and effective analysis of modern progressivism and the Obama regime.

If one had a quibble it would be that the neocon in Mr. Horowitz consistently drives him to relate virtually all matters to an Israeli centered foreign policy. However, one might also say that he is an anti-Communist of the type I knew of in my youth such as Whittaker Chambers and other cold warriors. His credentials are so impeccable on this score that it is impossible to deny him his conclusions respecting the left and their insidious effect on American foreign policy.

Many of us could pull out replies from five years ago warning of the character of Barack Obama and we, of course, would not have been original in our warnings. Men who have been so maligned have been proved so right. Foremost among them would be the man who wrote Obamanation, Jerome Corsi. Someday the man will see his due acknowledged. But David Horowitz certainly ranks right up there with courageous Americans who took on Barack Obama when the Obama's skin color made him above criticism and guaranteed that his critics would be crucified.

Bravo!

Yes this is one that should be filed and saved’ Horowitz grew up in a commie household and was a ‘New Leftist’ so he knows how this people think at the core of their being.

One interesting quote:

The fact that I had a radical past allowed me to see much of this coming. But even I never thought we would be looking so soon at the prospect of a one-party state. Those words may sound hyperbolic, but take a moment to think about it. If you have transformed the taxing agency of the state into a political weapon – and Obama has; if you are setting up a massive government program to gather the financial and health information of every citizen, and control their access to care; and if you have a spy agency that can read the mail and listen to the communications of every individual in the country, you don’t really need a secret police to destroy your political opponents. Once you have silenced them, you can proceed with your plans to remake the world in your image.

A police state is only as good as its files. Combine the file base to be assembled with Obama care and the NSA’s data mining of US electronic transmissions and one has the basis for a file system on the population that the KGB would envy.

Sums it all up. Obama has been called stupid and incompetent. The truth is that he is evil. And his actions look stupid or incompetent when you do not regard his evil motive. Obamacare must be neutralized.

Once I read Obamanation, I knew exactly what the Mahdi was and could predict the horror his regime would be. All my predictions have come true. What's really horrible is that not even Fox News would interview Corsi and give fair warning of what we were in for.

I take exception to one of Horowitz's assertions:
Barack Obama ... is the most brazen and compulsive liar ever to occupy the American White House.
No, Bill Clinton is the most compulsive liar ever to be President.

Barack Obama's lying is not compulsive; for him, lying is an indispensable tactic that he frequently employs with great success.

There is a difference between lying frequently and lying compulsively.

Great article. I wish every American would read it.

Many great point but I was struck by the last paragraph:

". . The most important battle in the world today is not being waged in the Middle East but here at home in the United States. If we lose this battle, everything is lost. But if we will take the measure of the enemies of freedom and prepare ourselves to fight them, we have a better than even chance to win."

Kudos to Horowitz for writing this. It takes a lot of courage for him to do so. The communists have special revenges in store for their apostates.

His article brought out some ironies. He is correct that with these people it is always about power and nothing but power. It’s been that way ever since Lenin got off the train in St. Petersburg. But in their quest for power, America’s communists have become that which they once detested. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, there were two competing strains of statism at work in the world; fascism and communism. And they absolutely despised each other, even though they sought essentially the same ends. From 1939-1945 those two strains fought a vicious, brutal war of extermination against each other. The communists won that war at a staggering cost.

Today, the American communists, in order to gain power, have become fascists. They sold their ideological souls of Marxism-Leninism to create a state much more like Hitler’s Germany than Stalin’s USSR. And our leftists like Jarrett, Axelrod and Ayres probably don’t realize it. Or care.

I don’t see much difference between the regimes of Hitler and Stalin, except that neo-Nazis at least admit what they are while neo-Socialists try to deny it by calling themselves “progressives” and “liberals” and “Obama.”

To my mind, the biggest threat we face is apathy along with a heaping helping of fear and our own unwillingness to face the unknown. We are more willing to stay in a state of relative comfort in the falsely perceived shreds of what is left of our freedom rather than suffer the discomforts of actually fighting, to the death if need be, to attain the REAL freedom our Founders intended for us.

We are not led, we are whipped into submission and we will not admit it even to ourselves.

Once, on THIS soil was fired the shot heard 'round the world. It was fired for our freedom and our posterity.

Recently another shot heard 'round the world was fired and it was fired not FOR us, but AT us, and we never returned fire. We chose to allow our nation to die.

This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.

Concord Hymn

by Ralph Waldo Emerson

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.

Indeed, and the most insidious part is the motivation to lie to yourself rather than see the tradeoff for the future total control state. It is not an exaggeration that the people are putting on their own chains as they willingly become slaves.

Larry Elder would disagree.

By their deeds shall ye know them. With sadly few exceptions, the GOP-E have become if not full-on Democrats themselves, they are collaborators with the regime. They realize they will never attain power as the Left is trying to do, so they will content themselves fighting over the scraps from Odinga's table.

Never forget

The question is, is Obama a weakling and a bully, who will, at the end of the day, be content with slapping around pathetic Republicans, or is he a Leninist who will, when the stars align, go for the gold?

The reason the Left is so scared right now is that a) they probably think he's going for it, and, b) with a rifleman behind every blade of grass, they can't know the outcome.

Not just one event, though.

Look for the trifecta to occur:

* A financial panic (not even a collapse, a panic will do);
* Race riots sparked by a high-profile incident;
* Another mass casualty event involving guns.

Either all at once, or in rapid succession.
