The Great Unraveling
It’s here, people. Obama’s plan is to marshal this “People’s uprising” into a political attack on the engine of capitalism, using the Wall Street he’s in bed with as an attack on the capitalist system, and the “bankers” and traders as the scapegoats.
The outlines of the plan have long been clear, but sadly, those who bothered to look and to express alarm early on were dismissed as fringe cranks and unhelpful “purists” whose outlandish Visigothery would drive away “moderates” and “independents” (who, incidentally, flocked to the GOP in the wake of the TEA Party movement, giving us a 2010 electoral landslide. But we’re to bracket that. Our betters know what’s best, regardless of how many times they prove themselves astoundingly out of touch with the mood of their own base). And now the next stage is beginning: an assault on the “fat cats” and the money men, launched from different angles, with the Occupy Wall Street crowds providing the civil unrest, the social tension, and the optics, making the more outlandish demands (and including the most repugnant fellow-travelers), while Obama serves as the voice of reason and moderation, fashioning his campaign around a populist soft-socialism in which the banks and bankers and money men are required to pay “their fair share” and the “wealth disparity” is addressed — even as the evil Republicans try to “protect the rich.”
Reality doesn’t play a part. Propaganda to stoke envy and animate the programmed students of institutions long ago infiltrated and solidified by the organized left, is all that needs be concentrated upon — to create the illusion of a mass social uprising (of “the 99%”)
Anyone who’s read Alinsky, or familiarized themselves with Cloward-Piven, or has read Edward Bellamy’s socialist Utopian blueprint, Looking Backwards, knew what was coming — and we knew because we didn’t pretend Obama was anything else but the radical leftwing ideologue, marketed as a pragmatic empty slate, he truly is. Billy Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn told us that. Jeremy Wright and Frank Davis told us that. ACORN and community organizing and local endorsements by communist parties told us that. All we did was look.
The legacy media’s aid (and cover) in selling this orchestrated leftwing Marxist movement is, frankly, horrifying — but it, too, is to be expected, given who the mainstream press in this country is: they are j-school “progressives,” and as such they are too sophisticated to believe themselves Marxists, preferring instead to fit themselves in less exact contours as proponents of a rule by merit (and then, conveniently, determining merit based upon level of commitment to “progressive” ideas). But no matter what they call themselves, or how flippantly they dismiss those “fringe right wing extremists” who see them for what they are (with the help of those right-leaning “pragmatists” who don’t wish to be seen as gauche or cartoonish), any way you cut it, the meat of the movement is a move toward tyranny. Individual liberty is subsumed to the Greater Good; truths are built around political consensus, not founded on some arcane system of Enlightenment logic; meaning belongs to the group bold enough to claim it and strong enough to defend their claim; and the government, because it promises to enforce egalitarianism, is the only moral entity in a world otherwise riddled with rank self-interest.
Crony capitalism is conflated with capitalism; crony capitalism is, internally, promoted by the government; outwardly, the very crony capitalism government is engaged in is singled out and frozen, the object at which the public is direct its ire; government steps in to protect us from the ravages of an unjust capitalist system, promises to spread the wealth more equitably and to clamp down on predatory capitalists and capitalism.
In short, this movement represents the complete deconstruction of the American ideal as founded and later framed in a Constitution itself under constant linguistic and hermeneutic assault (on which I’ve discoursed at length over the years) by representatives of the left in every branch of government. And because all this is happening now — with one major political party and their allies in the press — it is safe to say that we are indeed in the midst of the soft civil war I spoke of an inevitable more than six-years ago.
What is important to remember is that, regardless of what the media presents to you, we are still, in fact, the majority in this country. We needn’t waste our time on counter protests; instead, we must redouble our efforts to make sure that we protect the system from voter fraud, and then resolve to win every local election outward by identifying and supporting the most conservative / classically liberal candidate we can find.
The GOP, as a national organization, has become a feckless appendage to the Big Government movement; so long as taxes are lowered, most in the GOP establishment are content to allow a powerful centralized government to allocate its “compassion” to the people. How else to account for their overt desire to press upon their own base candidates — be it their begging for Christie, their completely surreal attempts early to promote Jon Huntsman as a “top-tier” candidate, or now their attempts to help rig the primary dates to give us an “inevitable” Mitt Romney candidacy — who are soft on the second Amendment, firm on the fact of man-made climate change (and the need to “do something about it”), supportive of mandates, supportive of TARP, derisive an of calls to reform Social Security; and who in many ways are merely pro-business versions of the very statists we wish to see thoroughly rebuked?
We have to decide now: do we really want limited government, individual autonomy, a competitive free enterprise system, and the rule of law? Or do we want an engineered society in which most of us become part of the “masses” or “working class,” forever “protected” by the Nannystate, whose power is absolute, and whose “partnerships” with select corporations will ensure that we spend our futures in an ostensibly benevolent liberal fascist state — one that will persist until the next phase of the movement, when government steps in to aid failing industry, and begins nationalizing various institutions.
Freedom is ours only if we demand to keep it.
I take these protesters seriously not because they are coherent or themselves at all powerful; but rather because they are puppets who are being controlled by an organized and well-financed radical left hoping to complete the movement they began in the 60s — this time having used different tactics to put themselves in position for an attempted coup.
I know. All this sounds paranoid and conspiratorial. And yet, it’s not my plan. I’m just one of the people who recognizes that those who are attempting it really are attempting it — and that the only way they can succeed is if we continue to pretend it isn’t happening.
