Pope Francisí Marxist Adviser, Naomi Klein
Independent Sentinel ^ | June 30, 2015 | S. Noble

A very high profile anti-Capitalist from Canada named Naomi Klein has been invited by Pope Francis to join forces with Climate Change activist and senior aide to the Pope, Cardinal Peter Turkson. Together they will lead a prominent conference on the environment with churchmen, scientists, and activists. The conference will exclude climate change doubters and moderates.

The Pope had walked back some of his comments on the economy which were anti-Capitalist but Klein says he got it right the first time – we need to overturn Capitalism.

Klein spoke at Occupy Wall Street, is, according to the guardian, is a “ferocious critic of Capitalism”, and a secular radical.

This meeting will take place in Rome on Sunday. She is scheduled to speak at a press conference tomorrow, representing the conference, “People and Planet First” which will be hosted by The Pontifical Council for Peace and Justice and the International Alliance of Catholic Development Organizations.

In November, 2011, writing for The Nation, she called for drastic economic changes to address climate change. She has described her economic views as “intellectually cataclysmic” for Conservatives. She’s also a member of a George Soros environmental group called 350.

Klein hung out with and spoke to the Occupy Wall Streeters in 2011. In this video, you can hear her chanting with the collectivists about the evil of Capitalism.

In an interview with the far-left Slate magazine last September, she was asked, “To be honest, both geoengineering and ending capitalism feel like impossible tasks. What are some practical next steps?”

She responded by saying, “Well, we need to finance this transition somehow. I think it needs to be a polluter-pays principle. It’s not that we’re broke, it’s just that the money is in the wrong place.”

“The divestment movement is a start at challenging the excesses of capitalism. It’s working to delegitimize fossil fuels, and showing that they’re just as unethical as profits from the tobacco industry. Even the heirs to the Rockefeller fortune are now recognizing this.”

In one of her books, This Changes Everything, she insisted that incremental shifts away from fossil fuels is insufficient. She believes militarism and war are due to climate change. She once admitted to being a communist but now says she is a socialist. Her father was a radical Marxist and she has said her grandparents were “hardcore communists.”

While she is appalled by capitalism, she manages to live a very comfortable life with her filmmaker and Al Jazeera TV host husband and son, according to The Washington Times.

Some of this makes her a kindred spirit with the Pope. Pope Francis and Naomi Klein both hate free markets, not that we have them any longer, they hate technological progress and economic growth. Progressives are actually regressive.

The next step will be to end use of all fossil fuels through international legislation, the guardian quoted her as saying.

The Pope’s conference is a prelude to the U.N. climate change conference.

Ban-Ki-moon, the U.N. secretary-general, is counting on the Pope’s “moral voice and moral leadership” to speed up the march to massive redistribution.

Radicals liks Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, head of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, is also a close adviser to the Pope.

Anti-Catholic groups like Mother Jones and Media Matters now sing the Pope’s praises. He might not be as warmly received by U.S. Catholics. We will find out in September.

The Pope does this kind of thing to poke people in the eye who think he might not be as leftist as we think.

The Pope wants everyone to KNOW he’s a committed leftist, and the unimaginably nasty Naomi Klein is just more in your face proof. Obama does such stuff too.

A red diaper baby who figured out how to make phony anti-capitalism into a lucrative and luxurious lifestyle.

For the fruits you will the tree, for its advisers you will know the real fabric of a leader. For Francis to be Marxist is a pre requisite to form part of his closest advisers.

"Despite Francis’ charisma and the way he has galvanized portions of the Catholic community as well as groups that are otherwise harshly critical of Catholicism and of religion in general, his Papacy has generated concerns because of its constant anti-capitalist and anti-development themes. Does he seriously believe, critics have wondered, that the evil and bankrupt creed of socialism, which has murdered more than a hundred million people and condemned hundreds of millions to unimaginable and unnecessary poverty, actually offers a solution for the poor of the world? Does the Pope, in other words, actually believe that the Communists were right? The central presence of someone like Naomi Klein in the Vatican climate-change conference indicates the Pope's antipathy for free markets is not merely rhetorical, but a deeply held bias that proceeds from a neo-Communist view of the world that can only bring grief and suffering to the very poor he professes to champion." (John Perazzo)
