“The Left wants you to think that the cultural changes that have taken place in America since the 1960’s have done nothing but progress us forward to a brave new world … they’ve done everything in their power to dumb down our children, undermine our families, rewrite our history, and promote obscenity and immorality everywhere they can … the ideas that now dominate our educational system are focused on removing God and His influence from every part of our culture.” – Curtis Bowers, 2010 (AGENDA Documentary producer)
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” – Barack Obama, 2008 “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists….” (Barack Obama, Dreams From My Father)
WHILE WE WERE SLEEPING
The battle for the soul of America has long been waged. If only we had seen it coming. If only we had been warned 100 years ago or fifty … or twenty-five years ago, or maybe even in 2008. If only somebody would have told us about the imminent danger and the threat to destroy America. If only Christians could have seen the coming attack on Jesus Christ and assault on morality.
Maybe concerned citizens could have resisted the transformation. If only one of the socialist leaders would have openly broadcast a call to arms for radicals to seize power so we, our parents, or our grandparents could have known their intentions and fought back. If only the anti-American movement would have made their declaration of war public, then we would have stood against the enemy and resisted, wouldn’t we?
But they were patient, and it happened gradually. It was a brilliant plan. One strategy enemies of God have used to neutralize opponents (we the people) is to convince us there was never an agenda against this country; that there are only rumors and fabrications. They say the deterioration of America has been natural and inevitable. To those of us who are awake and who understand the Bible, they are absolutely wrong; history reveals it, and evidence proves it true. If only we could have saved the United States of America. Maybe it’s not too late; perhaps there is still time….
Sadly, the rapid decline of our culture continues with little resistance; it’s happening right under our noses and right before our eyes. The implementation of an anti-Christian socialist agenda has been thrust on America over the last fifty-plus years and, if not stopped, will lead to communism. This is the goal of the Left…
We can either remain in denial, or we can join the awakened movement of conservatives, independents, people of faith, and average Americans who want their country back. Two key questions are “who is doing this” and, “how are they doing it”? Most atheists, socialists, and Marxists believe people would be much happier if Christianity was eradicated. Without strong people of faith standing for truth, their agenda would advance with little hindrance.
“The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion.” And, “Religion is the opium of the masses.” – Karl Marx
RADICALS AMONG US
Socialism has taken over much of Europe, and the result has been chaos and unrest due to economic failures and increasing immorality. Though it is not always blatantly out in the open, socialism has been on our shores for over a century. There are those in America who are so focused on gaining power at any cost that even some liberals question their tactics, which is one reason we’ve seen divided factions in the Occupy Wall Street movement. They’ve always been here, but now more Americans are waking up.
Many of us were either oblivious that our country was in fact drifting away from our roots, or we ignored it. Our culture has been compromised as they have purposefully achieved their objectives through many of America’s most influential institutions. Radicals have been emboldened by allies in the White House who through their policies are helping to advance everything from environmental activism to social justice and wealth redistribution. They openly support anti-American countries and groups while disrespecting Israel and weakening our national defense.
As Christian conservatives, one of our main concerns must be the protection of free speech and religious liberty in America. They’d love to shut us up. Until we understand how deceptive and dishonest some of our opponents are, it will be hard to defend the constant attacks on our faith, family, and freedoms. We are seeing more and more class warfare, criticism of capitalism, and government intrusion on American citizens’ basic rights, including religious liberties.
Many liberals and progressives in the media, in OWS, and in public unions want to “reform” America’s free enterprise system. They’d like to see complete government control of our economy and markets; the Obama administration has already started down this road as they attempt to overhaul our nation’s health care laws and energy policies. Communist and socialist party organizers in America are now openly pushing their propaganda via the web and at public protests, including their failed efforts in Madison, Wisconsin.
But why socialism, and why did they choose this time in our history to try to make their move? Generations must have been dumbed down because anyone with a remote understanding of history knows that millions lived under abject poverty and suffered worldwide under socialism. Never before have so many innocent people died while being subjected to narcissistic leaders and tyrants who fooled them by saying all the right things. But the media buries it, and our kids are not being taught the whole truth in government-run public education.
Whether it is communism, socialism, Marxism, or progressivism, they all lead to man’s worship of the State as provider instead of the American system that allows for and encourages people to see God as provider. The fact that more Americans are considering ideas and “isms” like what we see today – after all of the climactic failures of socialism around the world – is beyond comprehension. If people don’t know biblical truth and American heritage, it’s no wonder some are not capable of reasoning and resisting this anti-Christian agenda. You don’t think our country could be destroyed from within?
Christianity is the one faith threatening enemies of God in America. These secular-progressive schemers set out to dumb down our children, minimize marriage and families, promote government control, and rewrite our history. They’ve been on our shores for more than a century, and the roll call of radical influences keeps growing: Lenin, Stalin, Marx, Gramsci, The Fabians, American Socialist Party, Saul Alinsky, Students for a Democratic Society, Bill Ayers, George Soros, Frank Marshall Davis, Jim Wallis, Jesse Jackson, Ted Turner, Van Jones, Rahm Emmanuel, Valeria Jarrett, The Clintons, Eric Holder, Cloward-Piven, ACORN, SEIU, AFL-CIO, NEA, CAIR, the U.N., and much of the mainstream media in America to name a few.
Why do you suppose the American people know very little about a far-left liberal Senator in Chicago who had ties to hard-core, radical, socialist, big-government ideologues? The media keeps a tight lid on inconvenient truths about Obama. Dr. John Drew did his senior honors thesis on Marxist economics at Occidental College, and he also founded the Democratic Student Socialist Alliance. He was a contemporary of Obama at Occidental and a Marxist himself. In fact, Drew was a well-known campus communist and was attracted to the college because Occidental was known for its Left-leaning politics and Marxist professors. Some even said it was considered “the Moscow of southern California.”
Occidental College attracted America’s future president. Drew believed Obama was looking for a social revolution during his college days, and he expected a movement where “the working class would overthrow the ruling class” leading to a socialist utopia in America. Drew admitted how extreme he thought Obama’s views were at the time. Americans are continuing to learn how little his views have changed.
President Obama’s early formative years feature a mixture of religious and political views, including those of his mentors, friends, and associations. Many of the relationships helped formulate his antipathy toward America, and his attraction to socialism is well-ingrained into his ideology and worldview.
From questionable Chicago politics to unethical community activism, there is a clear pattern in Obama’s past. A Republican with the same background would have been vetted extensively, covered 24/7 by the media, and would never be elected. To suggest the corrupt, radical, leftist, progressive individuals who make up President Obama’s close friends, associations, and his administration do not reflect his faith and his worldview is both naive and insulting to our intelligence.
