How many times, and how many ways, and how many places in this website have I pointed out the fact that most Marxists do not know that they are Marxists, of whatever variety. Saying that most Communists do not know that they are Communists, most Progressives do not know that they are Progressives, etc., is like saying most dupes do not know that they are dupes.
It should go without saying. If someone knew they were being duped, they wouldn't be duped. The evil genius of the Marxist lie is that it is not recognized as a lie. But if you read Marx's Manifesto, you see that the lie is so big, so broad, so all encompassing that some small part of it, at least, is quite likely to be absorbed by someone, and inculcated into their psyche, unbeknownst to them.
What prompted these thoughts was a radio monologue by Glenn Beck, who is my second favorite talk radio guy, after Rush Limbaugh. It was yesterday's broadcast, which I partially heard while I was driving and making pickups and deliveries. I love Glenn's sense of preservation and restoration of history and his seeming obsession with the quest for Truth, which might be the finest and best obsession any man could ever be afflicted with.
But during this particular monologue he went back to the old McCarthy Hearings to illustrate his take on American Constitutional First Amendment Freedom of Speech. It was not the first time I had groaned and rolled my eyes as Glenn went on and on about the horrors of McCarthyism. But this time he went farther. There may have been some video involved, for those who were listening over the internet or watching the radio broadcast on TV or whatever. He asked his favorite McCarthy-ite question, which is,
And then he referred to "all these people who stood up" at that question as being heroes, for standing up, and admitting that they were or had been members of the Communist Party. Heroes. Not traitors. Not subversives. Not revolutionaries. Not anti-Americans. Not radical opponents of the Constitution. Not sworn opponents of the very right to freedom of speech that Glenn was trying to illustrate. But heroes.
Showing that Glenn agreed with the successful Marxist destruction of Joseph McCarthy and the complete discrediting of all of his charges, which, after the fall of the Soviet Union and the opening of the Soviet Archives, were shown to be true.
So Marxism made some "Progress" here. It successfully inculcated into many American minds the notion that Communism is harmless and just another political opinion among the many at play in America. Nothing to see here; go on about your business.
I submit that it would have been appropriate to ask the exact same question this way:
I further submit that that restated question is completely synonymous with "are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" If you don't believe that, then all I can say is:
It could also be asked, "Do you now or have you ever sought to legally eliminate all religion from the land?" Or, it could have been asked "Do you now or have you ever advocated the legal elimination of any sense of private property?" Or, it could have been asked, "Do you now or have you ever worked to legally eliminate parental first authority over their own children?" Or, it could have been asked, "Do you now or have you ever sought the legal destruction of the normative family, and the eventual elimination of families from the land?"
Unlimited freedom of speech, and harmless, warm and fuzzy Marxism. Like everything else, freedom of speech should have reasonable limits; it should not be completely unrestrained and unlimited. After the Revolution, it is doubtful that the Founders would have welcomed a "Return America To The Crown" political Party, or a "Forget the Constitution Party", or a "Death To Religion" Party to promote their candidates and argue their points of view before the voting public. Yet today, it seems that many would welcome the Communist Party in that manner, and, if you closely examine the Democrat Party's platform, it would appear to be the Communist Party under a different name.
The McCarthy Shut-Down results are now all around us. Glenn and other anti-McCarthyites go on and on about the horrors of the "black lists" in that actors and journalists and educators would be denied the right to work in their chosen fields. Not that they couldn't work, but that they couldn't work to advance the cause of Communism through propaganda and disinformation. They could get another job, like the rest of us, but they couldn't use any special platform from which to slyly dis-inform the public to advance the cause of Communism against America, in America.
Am I saying such Hollywood personages as Charlie Chaplin, Lucy and Desi, etc., should have been blacklisted and not allowed to make movies?
Yes. Even as much as I love Charlie Chaplin, Lucy and Desi, and so many others.
The Hollywood Effect. Watch the movie Bound for Glory, starring David Carradine as Woody Guthrie. (That's Woodrow Wilson Guthrie.) Watch Grapes of Rath starring Henry Fonda. Watch Inherit the Wind starring Spencer Tracey. These, and many others like them, are considered classics today. How many generations of Americans have seen them and been moved to a lowered estimation of wealth, property, Capitalism and Christian religion? How many were moved to a "government knows best" attitude about any contentious issue, or about any previously non-contentious issue that could somehow be made to be contentious?
Progressivism is Communism one little nibble at a time.
The big screen and the small screen have been Communism's most effective tool of subversion in America. Hollywood went Red early on. Pro-Americans like Roy Rogers, John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart became the rare oddballs among the acting elites. There was a brief "Catholic Movie Heyday" period that ended with the Hope and Crosby era, and it's been all downhill since then.
Once upon a time, books, short stories, movies, plays and even situational comedies, and even stand-up comics, all shared one thing in common: a moral, or a moral lesson. Not any more. Today, the "moral" of any little piece of entertainment you are observing will be an anti-moral. It will praise immorality, or it will bless unbelief, or it will ridicule Christianity, or it will mock the ancient Judeo Christian ethos, or it will show America and American history in the worst possible light. Or all of those things.
The biggest and most successful single entertainment venue in America today is pornography, which is blessed by nearly everyone as "free speech". That alone should tell you everything you need to know about the nature of the American entertainment industry.
The Journalism Effect. The Racist-Marxist President Woodrow Wilson successfully seduced and merged the previously free "Press" into his administration, and made them into a government tool with which to promote his Democrat (i.e., Progressive-Marxist) program. It was then that the Press moved into the White House and became an integral part of the Democrat Party.
Previous to Wilson, the Press was an independent and adversarial entity, a part of the private sector, not the public. Post-Wilson, the Press had become a political tool, a Marxocrat Party agent of change, working for the Progressive agenda, merely feigning independence and objectivity. They actually set up offices inside the White House itself, and virtually lived there. They scratched Wilson's back, and he scratched theirs.
By all appearances, you would think the Press was officially authorized by something in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution to actually be a functioning part of the Constitutional government. Just like Lobbyists. After all, tax dollars were paying for their office space, heat, electric, etc., and even their transportation, as they followed their President around wherever he went.
They became the President's propagandists.
The Press was already predominately Marxist by the time of the McCarthy Hearings, and it was the Press that ultimately did McCarthy in. Since they won, and McCarthy lost, in that battle, they have continued the march, moving America's attention away from the Constitution and toward "worldly perfection" through Social Justice, in a million little ways.
Look through the Mainstream Media Liars pages to see how the entire field of American Journalism was converted and perverted into a profession of political liars, paid by their networks or employers to lie, for the "worthy" cause of Marxist improvement of life for everyone. Look especially at the Vietnam War page for how every single TV News Anchor, big time journalist and commentator practically stood in line to take turns telling the same flagrant lies, ultimately breaking a Presidency and losing a war.
This is particularly important for you to know. Not one single American military unit ever lost one single battle in Vietnam, yet we lost the war. The war was lost on the streets of America, due solely and exclusively to the same old lies repeated hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and annually by our Marxist media, throughout the duration of the whole war. Our Marxist media lost the war for us.
They never could have done it without their previous pure propaganda based victory over Joe McCarthy. That pure news media propaganda victory laid the groundwork for their later Viet Cong victory over South Vietnam and America, with Walter Cronkite leading the way and carrying the Marxist banner.
Given the choice between betraying my friends and betraying my country, I would hope that I would betray my country, he loudly and publicly opined, speaking of the McCarthy Hearings. And that's what he did. Note well that the only possible way any man could ever betray his country and not betray all his friends by that very act would be if all his friends were fellow traitors to their country. Which they were.
But, Glenn Beck sees these American Communists as heroes.
The Education Effect. Today, American adult parents who have retained some cognitive abilities and are now awakening to the growing menace that the Marxocrat Party presents to America, are ever increasingly concerned about "Common Core" and the various aliases it travels under. It is a giant, bureaucratic, government-controlled set of grand Social Experiments replacing old fashioned formative education. It is actually approaching what used to be called brain washing.
Now, it's obvious, but it most certainly is not new. It's been building to this almost forever. Under the influence of "educational reformer" John Dewey, and the Frankfurt School of Social Research, American education was transformed into a systematized inculcation of Marxian (anti-American) theory, Darwinian (pure Scientism) pseudo-science and Freudian (anti-Christian) free sexuality into students.
Frankfurt School professors Luckas, Gramsci, Adorno, Horkheimer, Marcuse, etc., promoted the development of the student into "The Revolutionary" in order to counteract the educational straw villian they had set up, called "The Authoritarian". The object was to create potential future anarchists. Here is the official description of the monsters they hoped to create:
That's coming pretty close to a description of a sociopath. There is nothing left for the revolutionary to be alienated from. This is an attempt to build a new human psyche based on hate. This "education" is nothing but seeding for future chaos and opportunities for revolution. You can see some of the results in the Occupy Wall Street movement, with whole parks full of absolute stupid asses.
But, we're just now waking up to Common Core, largely without even knowing what went before. There is nothing new here. There never is. The Communist Manifesto was published way back in 1848. Everything that's going on today is in there.
If you asked
and all the public school teachers stood up or raised their hands to affirm that they are or ever were Communists, would you consider them to be heroes?
Like I said at the beginning, if someone knew he was being duped, he would not be a dupe. The dupe, by definition, does not know that he is a dupe. Most Marxists do not really know what they are. Most Communists do not even know that they are Communists.
And Glenn Beck does not even know that he is a Progressive. To the degree that anyone believes that Communism is nothing more than an opinion or a relatively harmless political persuasion, to that same degree is that person a Progressive.
Communism is deadly to freedom, to common sense, to science, to common decency, to Christianity, to religion in general, and to the American Constitution.
Pray for Glenn Beck.

Of the numerous articles that I have had the pleasure to read on your site, in my opinion this is one of the finest. I hope you have sent it to Glenn Beck?

From: Vic Biorseth
Thank you; I'm surprised anyone thinks it's somehow good. I was depressed, worried and almost disgusted when I wrote it. Everywhere I look things are just getting worse and worse.
I never thought about sending it to Glenn Beck, but I'll send him a link in an email. He probably gets about a million a day.

You said "every single TV News Anchor, big time journalist and commentator practically stood in line to take turns telling the same flagrant lies, ultimately breaking a Presidency and losing a war." Did you really mean every TV News Anchor, with no exceptions? If that's really true then all is lost and there is nothing we can do anyway.

From: Vic Biorseth
Yes, that is what I meant to say. Every single TV News Anchor with no exceptions. You cannot name one who didn't tell America that Charlie decides who lives and who dies on Khe Sahn, or that Military supplied body counts are notoriously inaccurate, or that The Tett Offensive is shockingly successful, or a ton of other flagrant categorical lies. Like mindless parrots, or paid mimics, they just read their prepared Marxist lines to the public. See the Vietnam War page. They are not journalists so much as they are actors, who look good and read or learn their prepared scripts well.
But all is not lost. A Constitutionalist President can kick the Press out of the White House, off of Air Force One and out of the official entourage wherever he goes. A Constitutionalist Congress can likewise kick the Press out of the Capital building, and the whole government can go back to governing, and the Press can go back to being a strictly private sector adversarial entity observing and reporting on the government from the outside.
We can do much to eliminate or limit political Parties from the whole process, as we said in No Party America and somewhat shut down the Two Party Treason process. A newly Constitutionalist government can get the anti-Constitutionalist representatives and justices out of office, and shut down if not bring back under citizen control such things as education, just by going through what we said in Whole Hog American Constitutional Restoration.
The problem is that all of this, now, is necessarily radical. Extremely radical. But then, is not the problem of America moving completely outside the Constitution not a radical problem, deserving of radical resolution? It took a hundred years to get to this point with a sleeping or hypnotized citizenry. It is now so bad that one or two violent occurrences of some variety might be all it takes to make us into a permanent dictatorship, or broken apart into multiple dictatorships.
If we don't take radical action, we stand to lose it all, for good.
His will be done.

I meant that your writing style was fine. It was clear and concise with smooth logical flow. You are right in that the message makes one depressed, worried, and disgusted. Truth is painful at times. I want to tell you of an excellent website that distributes films that I believe you would find to be a valuable resource. It is http://www.moviepubs.net, a website for James Jaeger films. You can order the DVDs, but I have discovered that if you click on "Movies" and click to play any movie trailer to its completion (I suggest you start with Cultural Marxism) you can then click to see the entire movie from a picture menu (on You Tube?) that will appear on your screen. Trust me, Cultural Marxism will take your unusually clear perspective on things and bring it to even clearer focus. (Although it will probably make you more depressed, worried, and disgusted as well.)

Thank you; I pray that someone out there not familiar with the evil agents sent out into the world long ago by Stalin and other Marxists from Germany and from Russia, might click on that link and have their eyes opened. Some part of America's "Moron Vote" is going to have to be awakened, re-educated and de-moronified, if that's a word, if America is ever to return to government by Constitution and rule of law.

You can't restrict thought in a free society. Speech that opposes the majority view is what most needs protection. All political views deserve equal protection and equal expression. If we demand some loyalty oath before anyone even opens his mouth then how will we be any different than the old USSR?
Date: Mon Aug 11 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
I very strongly disagree. All political viewpoints in a free society must at least favor a free society, or the society will be allowed to argue itself out of existence. Here is what Marxism promotes as a political viewpoint:
Don't look now, but that includes the American Constitution, and it includes your religion, whatever it is. What you are advocating is toleration of a political viewpoint that is intolerant of us, to the point of seeking our destruction.
Furthermore, we already have a loyalty oath for our elected officers and appointed officials, as we described it in the Interview on Pope
We are seeing the results of not blacklisting Communists from government, news media, education and entertainment. That's what brought us such things as Common Core. How do you like it so far?
Comrade President Obama (peace be upon him) is amply demonstrating how his solemnly sworn American oath of office, which is a loyalty oath to the Constitution, may be ignored today with perfect impunity. How do you like that so far?
Failure to socially anathematize and shun such things as open homosexuality, homosexual "marriage", aborting people under the title of Free Choice, pornography, serial adultery under the title of No Fault Divorce, drug abuse, etc., all protected under the mantle of "Libertarianism" - has led to all of those things now shunning, anathematizing and even legally prosecuting us, for speaking one word in opposition to any of those things.
How do you like all of that, so far?
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
