The Midterm Elections and the Communist Manifesto

What we’ve witnessed since the inauguration of Obama in 2008 is not a creeping Socialism, but, it seems to me, galloping Communism!

By Joan Swirsky at Canada Free Press


‘While the media, the Congress, and even the courts have spent the past almost-two-years dancing around the word “socialist” to describe the hard-left economic, social and foreign policies enacted by the Obama regime, to me those policies have the distinctively noxious stench of Communism, the deadly political movement that has murdered and subjugated far more people throughout the world than all the wars since the beginning of time—a modest number is a hundred million!’

‘The Communist Manifesto dictates, among other things:

  • The abolition of private property (eminent domain, anyone?)
  • A heavy progressive or graduated income tax (actually massive taxation).
  • Abolition of all rights of inheritance (death tax, anyone?)
  • Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank (Federal Reserve, anyone?)
  • Centralization of the means of communications (net neutrality, anyone?)
  • Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, (General Motors, banks, healthcare, anyone?)
  • Free education for all children in public schools. (And free healthcare, housing, even cell phones, anyone?)’

‘In 1963, according to according to Jeff Rense, an American version of the Communist Manifesto was entered into the Congressional Record. It listed 45 goals, among them:

  • Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  • Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind.
  • Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  • Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  • Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  • Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policy-making positions. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  • Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  • Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
  • Infiltrate and gain control of unions.
  • Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  • Discredit the family as an institution.’

‘Creeping Socialism has been part of the American experience for decades, its biggest purveyors being Democrats FDR, LBJ, and Jimmy Carter. Bill Clinton would be in this pantheon, but Speaker-of-the-House Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America” in 1994 gave the popular president a Republican Congress and moved him, reluctantly, to the center—although his wife, like the head of the regime she serves, was enthralled by and wrote her senior thesis at Wellesley about the arch community organizer, Marxist Saul Alinsky.’
