In Faux Classes we discussed the many false "classes" fabricated by the drivers of Marxist ideology. For only established Classes of People can feed the Marxist agenda of creating jealousy, covetousness, unhappiness, discord and instability in society. Exploiting their commandeered and owned Marxocrat Political Party, Public Education, News Reporting, Commentary, Publishing, Movie-Making and Upper Academia, they created in the collective American psyche all the faux classes spoken of there.
Racial classes; gender classes; environmental awareness classes; scientific fraud issue classes; morality issue classes; and, of course, the first one: those who possess something, versus those who do not posses whatever that something is. This one was the main point aimed at by Marx's Manifesto, after all. The imagined-into-being Bourgeois Class, i.e, the businessman "owner of the means of production" versus the imagined-into-being Proletarian Class, i.e., the laborer who worked in the business.
In Marxist theory, the Bourgeois would always be the Bourgeois, and the Proletariat would always be the Proletariat, for they were fixed and rigid social class structures not ever subject to change. No crossing back and forth between these classes. You belonged to one and only one, and that could never change, even for your progeny. Even small businesses - the local butcher, baker, farmer or whatever - were demonized as "Petty Bourgeois", exploiting even their own children as laborers in the business, as if they were slaves.
Of course, that's preposterous. It's just plain stupid on its face. Only the dumbest of the dumb would believe it. New businesses start and older businesses fail all the time. Even businesses that have roaring success, and turn into major corporations, have their own failure rate, and often break up into multiple divergent enterprises, or go out of business altogether. All businesses have a failure rate, even the big ones. The few who might actually believe this lie are among the ones who are willingly and voluntarily Union Men. Meaning, they did not join the union merely because it was a union-only "closed shop" and they had to join the union in order to gain employment. They chose to join.
But, history proved, the faux business owner class versus the faux business laborer class separation was insufficient to incite any large population to violent revolution. It always failed to get much bigger than local and scattered violence, and it always either petered out or was put down. People everywhere generally had too much common sense to be taken in by the bourgeois - proletariat lie, at least not in large enough numbers. It "made sense" to the academics and the intellectual elites, but not to all the more practical people out earning their way in the real world. It may be good as a theory, but it does not and cannot stand up in practical application. It is simply untrue.
So, without dropping the bourgeois - proletariat class struggle from its arsenal, the ideological Marxists concentrated on income, wealth and property. Those who had it, or had most of it, versus those who did not have it, or had little of it. Make new faux classes to put them in.
This is to incite animosity between the rich and the poor. And to convince people, especially the poor, that Marxism aims to equalize all wealth, feed the poor and end poverty. Another lie, of course. And an utter impossibility. No less a personage than Jesus Christ told us that we would have the poor among us always. But Marxism wants the masses to believe that is not true, so that Marxist ideology may eventually bring about violent revolution.
Now, an Income Gap, and a Wealth Gap, and a Property gap, have been with us from the dawn of time, and will be with us until the end of time. Actually, income wealth and property are manifestations of the same thing. Income is earned, it is an element of wealth, and it is personal property. Wealth is property. Marxism aims at the end of private property. All property is, theoretically, to become "common" property.
This is really the root source of the "No Justice, No Peace!" slogan shouted through bullhorns and chanted in unison at all the "Peaceful Demonstration" riots we're seeing currently in scattered American cities. Some people have stuff, and other people do not have stuff. That's not fair. Marx's Socialism is supposed to fix all that.
That's why I said, in Faux Classes, that in these various Festivals Of Looting masquerading as Peaceful Demonstrations, none of the activities have anything whatsoever to do with race, or with police behavior, or with the facts and evidence and truth surrounding the "incident" that brought about the original Festival. It's really about Marxist-inspired feelings of inequality, income disparity, and the whole Social Justice lie.
When the Social Justice lie invades the Church itself, and after lots of Priests and Bishops get on board with it and start preaching Social Justice themes, suddenly, they themselves become the target, as Marxist Ideology from some quarters charges the Church with the sin of being wealthy, while poverty and hunger still exist in the world. That's the way it works. First they recruit you to their cause, then, sooner or later, it's your turn to be the victim of the cause.
That's the way the screw turns. First, you are recruited to do your part in the Class War, and then, you become the victim of it. The grand Social Justice lie incorporates all sorts of conjured up unequal situations for all sorts of minorities, none of which are encouraged to assimilate or become more American; quite the opposite. They, and we, are encouraged to Celebrate Diversity, and stay diverse. But, together, while still diverse. See?
But Income is the biggee here. Ya gotcher upper class, yer lower class and yer middle class, to put it in New York language. America posed a significant problem for Marxist ideology, because America always had an enormous Middle Class in income, and that American Middle Class was so far above the income and wealth level of the rest of the world as to be considered filthy rich, by their standards. There always, until just recently, seemed to be an insurmountable problem for Marxism here because there was no imaginable way that vast Middle Class could be turned against itself, and to be made self-destructive, like so many minorities.
Hence, Marxism's war on America's vast Middle Class. They became the New Bourgeois, and all of Marxism's big guns were aimed at them. America's vast Middle Class is now in the process of being decimated and destroyed by Obamunist plan, with the support of the Marxocrat Party, and with the support of the Republicrat Party. The completely unconstitutional Obamacare Law, all by itself, did all the heavy lifting.
And here we are. Nobody is stopping any of this yet.
After all, Marxist Ideology is a viable idea too, and in all Fairness and Social Justice, it deserves a place at the political table, just like the Constitution it radically opposes.

Purpose of this grouping of links is to track and record distinctly anti-American political positions in political Parties and in the ideologically Marxist and anti-American news media.
The Anti-Americanism Pages
Virtually every position of the Marxocrat Party is in some way anti-American and/or anti-Christian. Note that anti-Christian, in and of itself, is anti-American. There is almost no part of the Marxocrat Party agenda that supports or strengthens and does not oppose the American Constitution, and the News Media is nothing more than a totally controlled wing or branch of the Marxocrat Party.
Government by Social Experiment or Constitutional Government: Choose. All government, whether ecclesial or temporal, may be seen to be morphing into Government by Social Experiment.
You Must Attack Anti-American Politics to Win American Political Wars. Any public direct attack on anti-American positions will always win, hands down. So why does no one ever do it?
America's current Anti-Constitution Constitutional Government. All three current branches knowingly violate the Constitution that created them, provided their rules and set their limits.
Do we have an Anti-American President? A Pro-Islam, Anti-Christian, Redistributionist, Utopian, Pro-Illegal Alien, quite consistently Anti-American, President Obama?
Political Parties: Redirecting allegiance away from the nation. Political Parties demand first obedience to the Party, not to the Constitution, slowly poisoning the nation.
Two Party Treason: Marxist Democrats Vs. Big Government Republicans. If both political Parties violate the Constitution in different ways, what we have is two Party treason.
Imagining a No Party America, with political Parties outlawed. When Political Parties oppose or do not defend the Constitution it is time for a No Party America.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
