There are sectors in American politics that believe and behave leftist of even Barach Hussein Obama. The “Progressives” at “The Progressive” are among them, attacking Progressives, Schwarzenegger and Cuomo. It is important to know their claims and claims of proof for their claims. In almost every instance their language in their claims is creatively untruthful. Test yourselves in the following article at The Progressive:
“In the ruling class’s endless strategy of divide and conquer, its current tactic of pitting public sector workers against those in the private sector is gaining ground.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger used it time and again in California.
Today the New York Times reports that Governor Andrew Cuomo will try to impose a one-year salary freeze on all state workers.
And today, as Wisconsin’s new governor, Scott Walker, is sworn in, state workers are preparing for an assault the likes of which none of them have ever seen before. Walker is threatening to cut wages and take away benefits. And he’s even raised the prospect of making it illegal for state workers to engage in collective bargaining.
This assault on public workers is happening in one state after another around the country.
“This is a concerted, deep attack on public employees and public workers,” Gerald W. McEntee, president of the 1.6-million-member American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), told the Washington Post last month.
The attack is cynical in so many ways.
First, as McEntee noted, “The problem in the economy has not been created by public workers. It was created by Wall Street.”
Second, it’s not as though any public sector workers are getting filthy rich like the Wall Street bankers who got bailed out and are now back to bathing in ridiculous bonuses.
Third, the attack on public sector workers is an attack on the idea that there should be a decent middle class in this country.
If everyone’s wages and benefits have to be reduced to those offered by the stingiest private sector boss, you can kiss the middle class goodbye.
Fourth, the attack is but a thinly disguised thrust against unions. The public sector unionization rate is 36.8 percent; in the private sector, it’s 7.6 percent. Slashing the wages and benefits and rights of public sector workers is a way to delegitimize their unions. And for Republicans, it’s a way to get back at a Democratic power base and fundraising arm.
Finally, attacking public sector workers is bad for the economy. Cutting their wages and benefits will result in less purchasing power overall. The economy is suffering from a lack of demand already. This will just make that worse.
But mainly, it’s a great distraction. Those who rig the system and reward themselves would rather that workers fought among themselves than focused their anger upwards.”

Comment: This is old-time standard Marxism and American Marxist rhetoric. “The ruling class, whether Republican or standard Left, is the enemy to all workers, those who word and those who don’t. This is the group modern American Marxists of the Obama kind would like everyone to identify as standard Marxists. The goals are the same. It’s the people at The Progressive who are more honest about who they are.
America, we have a problem. In order to secure votes the American Democrat Party has bribed the Federal Workers’ Union members for years by offering excessive wages and retirement packages for votes. Nearly every American federal and state treasuries are facing insolvency as a result. The nation is going bankrupt. The status quo cannot continue. Even if the top ten per cent of the nation’s wealthiest were executed and their wealth confiscated by the State, a policy already implemented in the history of World Marxism, the nation would remain in fiscal disorder.
Among all Marxists including the Obama clones, any criticims or opposition to anything Marxist is considered a WAR.
