The Red is not Dead.

The Red is not Dead.

By Darren Morrison

Yes, that is right Marxism is alive and well and killing Christians. The number one killer of Christians throughout the world and history is Marxism. I know that today you hear more about Muslims killing Christian but the most deadly tool of Satan to kill those who follow Christ is the Marxist. I Marxism has many names and many brands, Marxism was the Idea of a German man Karl Marx, who wrote the communist manifesto. There are various different kinds of Marxism; the one that comes most to mind is Communism. There are different kinds of this, all very deadly to Christians. Maoism, Stalinism and Trotskyism are the most common. There is socialism which is a lighter form of Marxism and Hitler was a national socialist and that can show you that socialism is and can be just as lethal as communism. Often times I hear pro-socialist college students refer to anyone who doesn’t agree with them as fascist , funny though when anyone who subscribes to Marxism is closer to Fascism that anyone else. Fascism is a type of socialism that Mussolini subscribed to.

Since the Iron Curtain fell many have believe that Marxism is dying out. The old Soviet Empire is just playing possum, something that Trotsky said they should do. Years ago Trotsky said that the soviet union needed to act as though it was dead and wait to spring its trap. Well today all the heads of state in the former soviet union were communist party leaders and KGB agents, during the old guard. If communism is dead, then why is the country still ruled by hard core communist leaders like Putin. They have been supplying all America’s enemies with arms the whole time. It appears as though the big red giant is beginning to wake up. Christians are being persecuted again and missionaries are being expelled. Russia has kept its military armed, manned and updated the whole time they were supposed to be quitting communism. They have not disarmed a single warhead. It seams funny that while we were told that communism has fallen that the Russian military has been active the whole time, run by the same people who ran it before the Iron Curtain came down and the same folks do it today. But we have slowly disarmed and scaled back our military. If you think I am making this up, I am not. I am a follower of Christ. I am relaying things I have heard by very reliable sources, and I believe this to be fact.

Campus communism is growing in America again. College campuses across this country have been recruiting useful idiots more and more as of late. The World Worker Party (WWP.) has made it’s presence known on campus. They are at the forefront of organizing anti-war rallies and why they want to use them to disrupt business. It has been exposed that the WWP is funded by North Korea. Yes that is right North Korea has funded international Answer. The other Group “not in my name” is also a subversive communist organization has direct ties with Maoist Bob Avakian of the revolutionary communist party. What smells funny to me is why is the most deadly and violent ideology in world history is funding and backing anti-war rallies. Since anyone with half a brain knows that communists do not want peace.

Communists are using the anti-war rallies to recruit any that are not hiding from this fact. In the “Socialist Worker’s Party Newspaper” in there February issue 2003 there were two articles entitled “Young Socialists draw protesters interested in the revolution” and “Young protesters interested in revolutionary ideas”. The articles focus on recruiting efforts in the January 18 2003 rally in Washington D.C. You see some of the same people you see with signs saying “no blood for oil” or holding big peace signs are the same people who want a bloody revolution. History shows us that those who will not go along with the communist revolutions are killed. I say no Blood for Marxism or better yet just no Marxism.

A little while ago there were protests in major cities and college towns where the protesters blocked traffic. They claim it is about hurting corporations who they claim are the reason for this war, but the real reason this was done was not to hurt the big cooperation but to kill the small guy, the mom and pop stores and small business that need sales every day in order to survive. You see they didn’t even hurt Exxon or Transamerica, no they hurt Joe’s Deli, Jane’s Coffee House or Juan’s Mexican Restaurant, which was there purpose all along. You see the communists are against free enterprise. The communists need the big corporations. You see just as Ernesto “che” Guevara once said it is the small farmer who helps us win our revolution and in the end he will be eliminated. What the evil Che Guevara is saying is that after the revolution he will have to kill the small farmer.

The left lie to our students when they say that Hitler was a right winger. The fact is Nazi’s are socialist; they are Marxist just as much as Che Guevara, Castro and Stalin are just a different kind. You see Marxism has many faces and all of them are evil. You see the national socialist party, is as much a Marxist any other Marxist. The government controlled all enterprises and the gross national product. If that isn’t socialism I don’t know what is. College professors for many years have been telling people the opposite, because many of them are communist and don’t want you to think Hitler was one of them but he was.

If you think Hitler was the most evil killer of the last, century think again. There is Comrade Stalin the greatest mass murder of all of history. Conservative estimates of the deaths he caused are at least fifty million. But where is the outcry about this man. Why don’t they teach how evil he is in our history books. Why are thay so silent about this man in our schools. The World Workers Party, you know the ones who support the anti-war protest, say that those people had to die because they were unwilling to take part in Comrade Stalin’s vision. You see communists have no sympathy for anyone who is not in agreement with them. Death is just a natural part of communism. You either play or pay.

What about Lenin, the inventor of Terrorism. So you thought terrorism was something new? Think again. Lenin once said “we will use terror and violence to get what we want“. Yes it was Communists that taught the Muslim countries about terrorism in the first place. Many of the terrorist leaders including Osoma ben Laden, Arafat and Saddam Hussain have met in Cuba. Yes and I believe that the communists helped create Al quida and hamas. The Muslim extremists are useful idiots for the communist. Marxists have totally infiltrated Iran and Indonesia and have operatives in all the Islamic nations. This has been well documented in The New American and several other publicans.

Fidel Castro is an evil communist that is only 90 miles from our country. This man has murdered many and claims he is just a man who loves his people. The Communist publications try to paint the picture of the tyrannical dictator as a harmless man and completely ignore his human rights violations. He runs his country like a prison. Though he has made some strides toward better treatment of his people he has miles to go. Proof of the United Nations follies is the fact the they say they stand for human rights yet give Castro the red carpet treatment. In mid-90’s Castro was given a standing ovation before the security council. Well what do you expect for the U.N. they put Sudan on the Human Rights commission when they have slavery. They even have China on the committee.

The United Nation’s always have Marxist as there security council leader. They even had a convicted soviet spy as one of there first leaders. The United Nations is proven to be anti-Christian over and over again in there refusal to aid suffering Christians in Sudan, Indonesia, China, Cuba and other parts of the world but if a little Palestinian child gets as much as a scratch the U.N. is there. The U.N. is fighting against our very way of life. They are the center for all anti-gun organizations in America. Why do you think they want to disarm citizens around the world. Because the U.N.. wants to run the world like a Stalinist or Maoist regime. There was a pro-freedom rally held at Tienemen Square and the blood ran though the streets and the United Nations did nothing, but when our county overthrew an evil dictator like Saddam we were in all sorts of U.N. violations.

Winnie Mandela years ago stood up and the U.N. security council with a a lighter in her hand and said “with this lighter and our necklaces we will liberate Africa” What are the necklaces she was referring to? They were old car tires filled with gasoline. They would tie a person up with there hands and feet bound and then place the necklace on them and then light it. This was a horrible inhuman way to execute someone. They would do this to anyone who simple didn’t show enough zeal for Marxism. Many of those killed were Christians who never hurt anyone. They just believed the bible instead of the state. Communists have no regard to human life at all.

The fact is Communism is a tool of the Satan. That is why they are so violent toward Christians in the first place. That is why Christians everywhere must take a stand against communism. I stand on a corner opposite from the anti-war protesters I have a sign that has the hammer and sickle with the red circle and slash meaning no. No to communist. No to all types of Marxism.

Communists use hot topics to promote their evil. They will take an issue, like racism, and claim they have the solution. Many groups that are against racism are supported by communists. “anti Racist action” is one such group. But Cuba has the worse race record on our hemisphere, though Cuba’s population is mostly of African decent and are dark skinned, no person of dark skin is ever given any power. Only those of light skin have any power in Cuba. Then there is the environment. There are many environmentalists that shout for Marxism. But the former USSR had the worst environment record in human history. They strip-mined vast regions of their countries and left their rivers lifeless. They had no controls over their factory emissions. They do support Women’s rights, in fact they want to force all women to work. They want to control how many kids they have. Women will have equal suffering, that is for sure. The most odd of all is there support of the peace movement. Communism for peace and justice is the biggest oxymoron ever told. The history of terror and war and inhuman treatment by the varieties of Marxists is uncanny.

Capitalism is good but it does have it’s dark side and I believe needs to regulated. Capitalism is a good thing if contained. There is a fact in the last century, no two capitalistic countries have ever gone to war with each other. If you want world peace then promote capitalism, and national sovereignty. There is a basic human right to be able to make it on your own without interference from governments. Every person should have the equal right to start their own enterprise. But because Marxism has crept into our countries like rot, high taxes have ruined the small farmer and the mom and pop stores. You see communist countries are run by capitalists. They run their counties like corporations. That is what can happen if capitalism is not regulated. We in this country are being overrun by multi conglomerate companies. They buy up every thing and make it impossible for small business to exist. Small enterprises are what made this country great. So support small companies in your endeavors. Buy from the little guy instead of super Wal-mart. I always stop at those vegetable stands on the roadside. That is real freedom and another way to fight communism.

Freedom is not free. Many good men and women fought to keep this country free and you have to work to keep it that way. Marxism is a threat to all who hold the bible to be true, no matter what. Satan’s evil is so interwoven in the world that we must be constantly on guard.

What about Lenin, the inventor of Terrorism

Lenin learned it from a woman--Vera Zasulich. Her attack on the St. Petersburg Chief of Police in 1878 ushered in a era of terror against the Russian state which ended with the Bolshevik revolution.

I do not believe that campus communism (with a small "c") ever stopped growing in America in the 20th Century. We had periods, such as were triggered by Goldwater in the late 50s and early 60s, and Reagan in the 70s and early 80s, when Conservatism may have also grown--and for a brief period drowned out the Left on some campuses--but the recruiting by the enemy of those susceptible, has never stopped.

Anyone who makes the mistake of believing that the fight in the West is over, simply because one form of the disease collapsed in Eastern Europe, is very naive--and does not understand the power of envy, resentment and the other negative motivators.

Communism and Christianity share the same ethics -- altruism

Under communism, the ethics is enforced altruism -- every human exists for the good of all others.

Under Christianity, the ethics of "goodness" is altruism, selflessness - the opposite of selfishness.

That's true, but still; the Christian faith santifies self sacrifice. If you had to choose between saving your own son or saving seven other boys, you'd be expected to save the seven ... and you'd never forgive yourself for sacrificing your own son.

Mr. Morrison gives a good overview of Marxism here but he forgot to mention the Gramsci influence. The strain of Marxism now emerging in the West is very much modeled on the ideas of Antonio Gramsci. This is why there is such overwhelming financial support for various leftist schemes from the folks one would think would be opposed - the corporate elite. Both the Ford and Rockefeller foundations (to name only two) are notorious in their support of various radical groups like MEChA, and La Raza, the ACLU, SPLC, etc. All of the leftist movements and organizations active here, whether feminist, multiculturalist/PC, or environmentalist are Marxist in their underlying philosophy.

For example, if one looks at the list of corporations who filed amicus briefs with the Supreme Court in the "Affirmative Action" case, it reads like a who's who list of the top corporations. This is all right in line with Gramsci's vision of a "long march through the institutions" (corporations, church governments, universities and public schools, foundations, arts organizations, etc.). The elite schools where many of the CEOs received their education have been hotbeads of Marxist indoctrination for decades. Mr. Morrison is quite correct that Marxism is by far the most murderous religion in world history, having claimed well over 100 million victims thus far (not counting abortion). This fact is left unmentioned by the leftist-controlled media like the NY Times who have managed to label Hitler as a right-winger in order to continue the ongoing smear campaign against anyone who dares to oppose their agenda.

If he was talking about fraud, I would agree.

His idea of Capitalism leading to Corporatism leading to Marxism may have some merit. However, I would think it is the government regulation that makes the Corporatism possible.

I know that today you hear more about Muslims killing Christian but the most deadly tool of Satan to kill those who follow Christ is the Marxist.

The author shouldn't have used a "but" here. Most islamic countries are socialist in nature or spirit, saddam hussein was actually a hardcore stalinist, and modeled himself and his governments philosophy after stalin. (If you wanted him to like you, all you had to do was give him one of two kinds of things, somthing with his image on it, or something related to stalin).

The full name of the baath party is actually the baath socialist party. These countries actually are structurally socialist.

And had we sacrificed a hundred thousand or so at the beginning of the Marxist/Leninist Revolution, 200 million would have been spared. This doesn't include all those killed by tyrants that have popped up from Lenin's putsch or the ones we had to prop up because the alternative was even worse, or where we had to fight proxy battles to prevent a spread. If we were truly still a Christian nation even then, we would have made the sacrifice and spared us a great deal of death, suffering, and made a more stable world. Instead we have just the opposite. A great deal of true Christianity was left behind because no one had the stomach for the truth and we failed to live up to the ideals which this country was founded.

In November 1987, when Reagan's influence was at its peak and the USSR was straining at the seams from sanctions, Mikhail Gorbachev went before the Politburo and told them this:

"Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes.Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep."

Protesting is fine. That gets our voice out there. But more needs to be done. Action. An aggressive proactive grassroots action.

The right wing movement isn't as strong as we need it to be. We are all functioning independently of each other. The resources we have are far superior; but weak since we are divided. If there was a way we could pull together and function more on the lines of Al Qaeda (in terms of financing and information), we could stop this left/dem/commie infiltration in its tracks.

What was the strength of Rome? The warriors would copy their enemies fighting tactics and win.

So if we somehow pulled together groups such as Heritage Foundation, FreeRepublic, NJ Family Policy, Homeland Security and all the other little movements...well, see?

All of us that want things changed, we are draining ourselves of our finances and time. All of our successes pretty much some up as a small bandaid on the cause right now.

But, if we learn from the Romans, copy the Al Qaeda model...we would be unstopable

Thanks big time. I think I will buy the book. I have had a lot of older democrats try to argue with me that the dems are more favorable to our military. They haven't kept up with what their own party is up to right under their noses. They are often genuinely surprised that a lot of our military belongs to the Republican party.

"As the nineteenth century philosopher Vladimir Soloviev pointed out, the difference is that whereas Jesus urged his followers to give up their own posessions, the socialists and communists want to give away the posessions of others." - Richard Pipes

Christ preached that we should give freely of ourselves out of love, while Marx preached that we should steal from others out of hate.

Someone in the crowd said to Him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me." Jesus replied, "Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?" Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." - Luke12:13-15

Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, "Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year's wages." He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it. "Leave her alone," Jesus replied. "It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me." - John 12:3-8

Christ preached that we should give freely of ourselves out of love, while Marx preached that we should steal from others out of hate.

And Christ's teaching "... that we should give freely of ourselves out of love ..." is now dogmatized to the point where free will has nothing to do with it -- within Christianlty, altruism is a virtue and selfishness a vice.

But it is in man's nature to care for one's own interests first -- meaning that selfishness is virtue and altruism is vice.

That truth -- selfishness is a virtue -- is obvious to those living under a communist dictatorship. That truth is less obvious, however, in a mixed Communist/Christian environment where altruism is a matter of dogmatic faith and personal selfishness is acceptable when one is not in public view.

The irony in this article is that Communism and Christianity share the same ethics -- altruism.

Mystics of muscle and mystics of the mind, as Rand put it. Compulsory altruism is a hallmark of both religions.

Compulsory charity is an oxymoron.

Christians understand quite well that we do good unto others out only of our own free will. It is very wrong not to acknowledge this crucial distinction between Communist theft and Christian charity. It is only non-Christians who believe that we are so mind-numbed and brainwashed that we can make no choices of our own. We do what we think is right.

"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full." - Luke 6:32-34

Jesus tells us to "love others, as we love ourselves." It is true that enlightened self-interest is a good thing, but so is love of one's neighbor. There is more to life than taking care of yourself.

"If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? If I am only for myself, then what am I?" - Rabbi Hillel

Where your treasure is, so will your heart be also. A man can store up treasures for himself on earth, but what does it gain a man to amass worldly wealth, only to lose his soul?

It is true that just as racist nazis call themselves Christians so as to invade the church and destroy it from within, so have Marxists infiltrated Christianity to preach their lies as if they are the commands of God. It is not true however, that true Christians ever denounced the right to own private property or that the earliest Christians held their property in common. When two of Peter's followers falsely claimed to be donating all the proceeds of a property sale to the ministry, but in fact kept back part for themselves, Peter rebuked them for their lie, even while making it clear that they had every right to keep their property for themselves.

"Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? - Acts 5:4

Don't believe lies about Christianity from the mouths of the enemies of Christianity.
