Today’s Advantages Playing Black Racism

The color of racism in America today is overwhelming BLACK. That most of the racists playing black racism politics and extortion are black is unknown and unlikely.

But the heart beat of the politics does emanate from Democrats in the White House and Congress.

It’s profitable in these days for those in Leftwing political and educational power to extort favors, money, judgments, distort history and control crime statistics, falsify stories, and pass phony laws and print deceitful press reportings to maintain its Leftwing 95% command of the American Black vote….a condition of black racism all its own. Black criminality, economic, intellectual, and moral, in the country is celebrated in the fiftieth year of total Democrat political and economic control over America’s black urban communities.

As with all phases of today’s Democrat Marxist oriented politics, projection is the favorite social and personality mental disorder a disease to exploit for political victories…..attack others for all of ones own Leftwing sins, its own favorite plots, and crimes, to DEFLECT. As you all know, the Left has a very favorable press and controls the American educational systems.

DEFLECT, DEFLECT today and forever unto others the SINS you commit yourself, DEFLECT, they preach and practice.

The following article is headed by the question, WILL PIERS MORGAN APOLOGIZE FOR SPREADING A RACIST HOAX?

The title itself is peculiarly racist…a black racist’s writing of things, perhaps. Piers Morgan committed racism quite clearly and totally in his fevered report, didn’t he? He spit out black racist poison for his world to hear and believe. Moreoever, he has a history of spreading the politics of black racists.

Please read the following article which demonstrates how profoundly racist so many Democrats into black racism there really are:

Please also read the following article from the Washington Times, a review of a number of MSNBC’s racist programs to advance the causes of Black Racism to fix forever a place of religious hate of conservatives in the American Leftwing psyche to justify and secure their one-party control of American politics, law, and rule of government by whatever means necessary.

What a Progressive Used to Be within Culture

What a Progressive Used to Be within Culture, Marriage

by Anthony Esolen

In the past, progressives fought to defend the family because they understood that families protect us from the atomization and amalgamation that isolate and control us.

If someone were to ask me what a “progressive” is, I’d be at a loss to reply.

The term as used by those who call themselves such seems but an exercise in self-approbation. The progressive does not tell us to what place we are progressing, what we must abandon to take the journey, and why we should want to go there anyway. If I were pressed to give an empirical rather than an analytically coherent answer, I’d say that a “progressive” believes in an ever-wider scope of sexual license for the individual and a greater concentration of authority in quasi-governmental bodies outside the direct control of the political process (Child Protective Services, the World Health Organization, the National Education Association), to effect changes that the subject peoples would be too slow to accept on their own.

Such a progressive is not a rebel against, but a collaborator with, the social influences of the very thing he affects to disdain—for there is something else that thrives upon the symbiosis between sexual license and centralization of power.

It is instructive to turn to a progressive who wrote before the movement cast its lot with powers and principalities. Samuel W. Dike, founder of the Divorce Reform League, wrote “Problems of the Family,” one of a series of articles by seven progressive signatories for Century Magazine, in January 1890. I bracket certain words in the passage, and beg the reader to substitute “the sexual revolution.” None of the rest need be altered:

The Disintegrating Work of [Property]

The general movement of [property] has, so far, been like that of a huge glacier, breaking and wearing away into their elementary atoms all forms of cooperation, whether political or economical. Its ultimate atom is the individual; its favorite corporation is the largest possible combination. The family has in it the greatest cohesive strength, and has most successfully withstood the grinding power that has tended to crush everything subjected to it. This operation of [the modern industrial system], and the commercial outgrowth of it, combine with other social causes to help postpone marriage and reduce the size of families in those sections of society where these tendencies are the least needed. It brings the family into the labor market as a mere collection of individuals on the same economic footing as the unmarried. For small provision, at the best, will be made in fixing wages, for the rearing of children, the care of other dependents, and all those little things that make the home. In [the market of wages] the family is the accident of the laborer rather than his essential.

Dike was not arguing against private property. He was progressive because he was conservative. He did not wish to see an abstract commitment to private industry crush private industry itself, with small businessmen and property owners swallowed up in the larger industrial system. He reminds his fellow Americans that business is for man, and not man for business. And man is not that “ultimate atom,” the individual! No man is an island, said John Donne; and if every man’s physical death diminishes me, then every man’s spiritual death diminishes me all the more.

We are made for one another. The clearest proof thereof is our division into male and female, the man for the woman and the woman for the man, and both for the children to be born from their love. In the family, in wedded love, says Milton, are founded “Relations dear, and all the Charities / Of Father, Son, and Brother,” while “casual fruition” is left for the beasts. Thriving societies are made up not of individuals but of families. Yet families are more than foundational: they both build up the society and are the prime beneficiaries of the society they build. It follows that nothing that harms the family can be just—as we would not propose to heal a man’s cancer by removing his lungs.

Dike is not fooled by people who insist upon an individualism, whether sexual or capitalistic, that results in the preferred vehicle of social, economic, and political influence, “the largest possible combination.” He is thinking of the large corporations of his day. He had not yet seen what the drive to combine and amalgamate would do to schools, communities, and bodies of government.

The consolidation of school districts and the construction of large facilities for many hundreds of children from widely scattered areas, for example, have robbed ordinary families of most of their influence over the single feature of political life wherein they are most nearly concerned and might most fruitfully exercise their wisdom and talents.

The direct election of senators was a victory of the later progressives that led to consequences that were quite the reverse of what many of them hoped. At a single stroke, this change turned each state into a geographically arbitrary field for culling votes without regard to state districts or communities, in a manner very similar to that in which large commercial operations sweep indiscriminately across the populace for customers, one here and one there.

I’m no goldbug, but even the move from a gold-based currency to a fiat currency, with the fiat vested in a Federal Reserve Board, the single most powerful economic institution in the history of the world, partakes of that same double movement of amalgamation and atomization. When American dollars declared that they might be redeemed in silver, the Treasury was effectively subject to the determinations and transactions of ordinary people’s buying and selling. The household in possession of gold or silver, even in promissory notes, had something of intrinsic value. But when that declaration was removed, power was taken out of the hands of ordinary people and vested in the members of the Federal Reserve Board.

Shall we not also call to the dock the federal judiciary? It will be objected that judges have no armies to enforce their decisions, but that’s not true. Their army is the vast apparatus of the bureaucratic state, which at once seizes money and lends it back with usurious interest—interest paid not in dollars but in submission to the bureaucratic will. The erstwhile citizens of a small town in Pennsylvania—reduced to atoms, as far as their influence over the national government is concerned—may dearly wish to tell the Supreme Court where to go and whom to harass, but they have been rendered poor clients of the state and cannot afford the legal burden of trying to maintain federal funds, much less losing them outright. Lawyers proliferate, and justice dies; self-government degenerates into self-will.

Instead of a government of governments, a national authority built upon and by and for states, communities, parishes, guilds, free associations, and households possessing prescriptive rights and duties and authority, we have an all-determining empire of managers.

It no longer strikes us as bizarre that nine lawyers in Washington should have anything to say about what a valedictorian may utter; or that imperial bureaucrats from the Department of Housing and Urban Development should issue directives regarding zoning for ethnic diversity; or that there should even be a national department devoted to something essentially local; rather as if the most powerful woman in the nation should embark on a crusade to alter what is served to children in school cafeterias, or as if a court should instruct a beneficent organization such as the Kiwanis or the Boy Scouts on their rules for membership, or as if the very definition of the family should fall under any political jurisdiction. The “largest possible combination” now works not simply to weaken its rivals, but to absorb them—to say what they are and what they are not.

I’ve mentioned that Samuel Dike was the founder of the Divorce Reform League. One might assume, since he was a “progressive”—an ally of men like Seth Low, the progressive mayor of New York City and president of Columbia University—that he advocated liberalization of divorce laws. Quite the contrary. Because he was a progressive, because he was deeply suspicious of those largest possible combinations in business, he understood that it served those combinatorial interests to weaken family ties, especially as the labor of women and children would undercut the salaries paid to male heads of households. Dike wanted to make divorce much more difficult to procure, to protect one state from the heedlessness and license of another.

Dike did not want the machine to function more efficiently—the glacier, to grind mountains down to dust. His was a call for citizens to block its action, by recovering the integrity and the authority of their homes and communities. It is a call we would do well to heed.

Obama’s Saul Alinsky Case and the Feminist Disease

What is entrenchment?

Saul Alinsky – Rules for Radicals

Saul David Alinsky, a writer, was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of the modern community organizing movement. He is most noted for his book Rules for Radicals.
Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA
Education: University of Chicago

Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools

8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

The above article was sent by Arlene Taber.

Among the first months of articles here at our local Prager group page, I and other contributors to this site warned readers about Obama’s love for Saul Alinsky’s rules for organizing Marxism for the ‘needy’ as a step toward socializing the entire nation by government rule.

Marxist control…..or any one political party control of the news media and a nation’s educational system is central to the establishment of any dictatorship, tin pot, Marxist, Islamic or Obama’s.

Liberty’s troubles in America, however, predated the present president in the Oval office.

We had a moral, cultural, and political revolution in the late 1960s and 1970s. Have you forgotten?

Our democracy is becoming a fraud now that the Political Party in power uses its self-claimed power to ignore Congress and the Courts, to isolate, demonize, and penalize its opponents, stack the courts with phony judges, and ignore the Constitution, the law of the land. Further, it bribes and otherwise financially abets billionaires to support government power and enrichments who toady to Marxist-America’s science, industry, and religious and economic demands for government favors.

Worse, is the collection of America-haters bribed not only by government handouts, but by hirings, cronyism and public and university propagandists, organized for future action, political and violent….and extension of the unfinished business of the druggie, sex, black nationalist and anarchic riots and revolutionaries who have gravitated to and have resulted from the perpetually narcissistic and disgruntled of the habitual left.

“I feel, therefore I am” is their most ” rational” motto.

Normal, traditional Americans work, most still not only bear family responsibilities but believe in them.

Unfortunately they still believe in ‘university’ as a place for honest learning, honest teaching, to pursue mankind’s search for truth. Such a place rarely exists in today’s ObamaRule.

The American female, the unmarried, the fatherless, the isolated all are central to the rise of the Marxist dictatorship in this country. They become misfits anywhere along the line of experiences; the street, schools, both public and parochial through university and grad school, and in broken families.

The feminist claim taught without end today. dominates the culture, that the human male and human female are equal….the same, so statistics throughout the culture must show the equality that they are the same. These people have no interest in truth, reality….they are feminized….that is, they feel they should be made equal because they breathe and go to school, and sing the feminist chants.

Many females who consider themselves conservative also believe in this insanity of male-female equality of ability, interests, size, make up, thinking, and all of the other genetically derived differences.

Equality? What is the equality of the sexes when the sexes aren’t inherently equal?

Probably 99% of all walking males over sixteen years of age could snap the necks of 99% of walking females if they were determined to do so, despite all of the esteem pounded into the human female these days from ages five to fifty. What is it that makes us pretend there is no difference between the male and female human animal?

I mention this only as an introduction to your thinking about demanding the human male and female be determined as ‘equal’ in all forms of American life. It is particularly insane for a culture to program its children to be feminized medicinally so incompetent teachers can sing their empty songs to a quieter more bored student audience.

I would never, never trust an American Miss or Mrs. or any other female in my foxhole in wartime. She is animally programmed to scream when facing terror…..as an announcement to males she is in trouble and needs help for starters. She is made to panic when in danger.

It used to be, even in my lifetime, that the human female must be the more esteemed sex, because of her sacred role of bearing, delivering, and nursing the most important creature in Nature’s command of the species…..a baby….essential to the future of the species.

Charlatans now run America…in our schools and universities, countless in Congress, and throughout the Obama adminstration, among those who dictate through the newspapers and media in general, and also in big business, especially those who make insanities possible.

The rise of the Marxist female to ruling power positions begets the end of intellectual creativity, independent pursuit of thought, invention, anything that implies, threatens change….for change is the enemy she genetically fears.

There is the collision here, for change is exactly what the human male is genetically programmed to explore.

Exploring is precisely what he is programmed to do. He becomes wasted and possibly a killer when he sees no route to explore that satisfies his interests and curiosities.

Today’s America, with or without Barack Obama, is failing both sexes by teaching false doctrines…..doctrines which are contrary to their genetic programs.

Therein lies the sex rub.
