The reason it has been easy for infiltrators to demoralize and corrupt this country? It’s a simple matter encouraging people to selfishness. We are naturally inclined to selfishness. Therefore, with the right combination of propaganda pressures applied consistently over time, progressives have changed the U.S. into a seething mass of selfish adolescents interested only in demonizing others to stoke the gravy train.
Chinese General Sun Tzu, one of the greatest philosophers and military strategists of all time, said: “If you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles… if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.”
The simple fact is we no longer know ourselves, and we certainly do not know our enemies. We can thank decades of demoralization, planted by our enemies and nourished by homegrown progressives. Two sources of information help to illustrate the point. First, look at the game plan promulgated by The Frankfurt School in the 1920s. These German Marxists, along with legions of like organizations, had one goal: the destruction of Western civilization, followed by the installment of worldwide communism. They would accomplish this through cultural revolution or cultural Marxism: infiltration and systematic overthrow from within.
Here is their list of measures exacted with great success, thanks to the help of the Soviet Union and U.S. progressives:
EXCERPT To further the advance of their ‘quiet’ cultural revolution – but giving us no ideas about their plans for the future – the School recommended (among other things):
1. The creation of racism offences
2. Continual change to create confusion
3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority
5. Huge immigration to destroy identity
6. The promotion of excessive drinking
7. Emptying of churches
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits
10. Control and dumbing down of media (Poster child: Chris Matthews)
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family
To further their aims, they would:
• attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children.
• abolish differences in the education of boys and girls
• abolish all forms of male dominance – hence the presence of women in the armed forces
• declare women to be an ‘oppressed class’ and men as ‘oppressors’
The ‘thinkers’ at the Frankfurt School may have studied Sun Tzu, taking seriously his statement: “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
Frankfurt School tactics served the overall strategy very well. Progressive educators, politicians, entertainers, and media moguls helped the Frankfurt School achieve enormous success in the U.S. by employing these tactics while concealing the overall strategy. This happened because we never truly took the time to know our enemies, or preserve knowledge of who we are as Americans.
Former KGB operative Yuri Bezmenov instructs us further, helping us know the enemy, giving us inside information pertaining to the Soviet role. This video is long, detailed, and fascinating:
Essentially, Bezmenov describes how the KGB realized wild success infiltrating, demoralizing, and destabilizing the U.S., leading us by the nose for decades to eventually accept every tenet of Marxist/Leninist philosophy, culminating in the regime in power today.
Bezmenov strongly asserts that our only salvation is a return to traditional moral values and traditional Americanism as articulated by the Founders.
Hence the Tea Party.
It is no accident that the Tea Party has been viciously attacked from the day it emerged as a spontaneous street protest nationally involving millions of people.
Marxist progressives led by Barack Obama saw immediately a dire threat to their cultural revolution with the arrival of the Tea Party. Thus, every day for four years, you have heard the steady propaganda drum beat—‘the Tea Baggers are ignorant racists who hate immigrants, and, they are homophobes, Islamophobes, and rubes who cling to their guns and their Bibles.’
Even establishment Republicans perceived the threat to their cozy relationships with Marxist progressives, joining the attack on the Tea Party.
Notice how Tea Party politicians have been ridiculed and marginalized, only a few remaining in the arena: Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Paul Ryan, Mike Lee, Allen West, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Trey Gowdy, Eric Cantor, and yes, Marco Rubio.
Keep in mind as well the stark reality Obama’s IRS has been used to stifle Tea Party voices for years; and the targeting continues to this day, despite ongoing congressional investigations pointing to White House direct orchestration.
Progressives and Republicans are not alone in condemning the Tea Party. Islamists promoting Jihad likewise see the threat of the Tea Party and react.
And finally, though many scoff, the truth is that Marxist progressives and Jihadists are very comfortable working together toward mutual aims, chief among them the destruction of traditional Americanism, an effort now led by Barack Obama.
Numerous articles prove the point.
Sun Tzu was a brilliant general and strategist. He advised that if you must fight, fight hard, fight fast, fight to win, and never waste resources, especially when confronted by a force more powerful than your own.
Another great general gives us advice in this hour:
“It is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness….indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our Country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.”
-President George Washington, farewell address, September 19, 1796
