This post is about a few things; the underlying indoctrination being used to push us towards socialism, the organizations that are behind this hidden agenda and what makes them so dangerous. They have a revolutionary mentality, they subscribe to the idea that you can change fundamentally America.
March 4th was a National Day of Action called for by a coalition of groups working under the banner – Defend Education. So now the real question is – Who are these groups and what do they really stand for?
Thousands of people took to the streets across the country. There were rallies in Wisconsin, Texas, Illinois, at UC Berkeley, which was probably was the biggest and many other locations around the country. Most received only passing coverage by the media, yet these rallies are another example of the socialist forces eating away at the base of our society.
Coalitions such as Defend Education are created to fool people as to the true nature of their agendas. Defend Education sounds noble and meaningful. However, their real messages are; corporations are evil, we want socialism, we want government control and to create social justice.
One significant and noteworthy player in this call to action is Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). SDS is a student organization which promotes the beliefs and agenda of America’s progressive left. The group takes its’ name and inspiration from the original SDS of the 1960s, the largest radical student organization in US history. It was the incubator for the 60’s Weather Underground which spawned Bill Ayers and his bombing attacks on government buildings. The reconstituted version that began its’ comeback around 2006 has gone worldwide. In the past the SDS, was a violent campus organization – will it be again?
Some of the other groups involved in Defend Education are Bail Out the People Movement which is a front for International Answer, a pro communist group and Anakbayan which supports the terrorist groups, Hamas and Hezbollah. Anakbayan is part of the noncommunist core of the “progressive movement”. This group is currently running a campaign against what they call a “U.S. military occupation” of Haiti. The last time I checked the military’s efforts in both Haiti and Chile are humanitarian relief efforts. There are lots of splinter groups participating in the coalition, far too many to mention individually.
There are other groups that most people have never heard of such as “Nation of Aztlan”. This group is made up of activists from numerous organizations including The Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA), and the National Immigration Forum (NIF). This group is the Hispanic answer to Hamas. They believe that most of the southwest should returned to them for establishment of a “Hispanic Homeland”. This would include the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, plus southern Colorado, along with several current Mexican states. They would establish the “Republica del Norte” or the Republic of the North. According to Charles Truxillo, professor, University of New Mexico, this is “an inevitability”. He also says the new “Hispanic Homeland” should be brought into being “by any means necessary.” The logo of this organization sends a clear message – it is an eagle with a stick of dynamite in its claw.
So what were the demands on the National Day of Action, here is a sample from the California website:

O.K., so they want the government to provide everything for free, no more prison, no more border control and citizenship with full benefits for illegal aliens! How in a state where they are already bankrupt do they expect to pay for this? Next check out the endorsers!

Keep in mind this is just from the California website. There are many websites from related groups all over the country.
Of course, SEIU and Andy Stern are also involved, Stern is an original SDS radical. He’s a Leninist which means he subscribes to a theory of dictatorship of the proletariat, led by a revolutionary vanguard party. In his recent book, Stern claims globalization and the economic gap between rich and poor is the primary problem facing the world. The book calls for unions to be the primary leader of social reform, including increased taxation of the wealthy and the need for universal health care.
SEIU and AFSCME, the municipal employees union, are two of the most politically active organizations on the left. There are legitimate reasons for concern about what happens next if the agenda of these groups fail. The extreme left, as Andy Stern points out, “want our money’s worth”. These groups have invested significant time, attention, manpower and money into their agenda – specifically healthcare. They are counting on Barack Obama to make this happen.
Listen to what is being said by those who support these policies about America:
“And this is part of the thing is I don’t think we’re going to be meeting people’s day to day needs and I don’t think we have to help this capitalist system which has met the needs of American working people on the backs of third world plantations for my whole lifetime. We don’t have to help that. We have to help bring this government down. We have to help destroy this system and that requires increasing the alienation that working class and oppressed people feel”. – Jeb Brandt, aka The Bald Communist
So what is the fallout potential if their agenda fails? We always here about the tea parties being the home of right wing extremists – so what of the left? Remember their history – Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground, the SDS? The potential for violence is very real.
Make no mistake, the left will pull out all the stops, claims former SDS member and leftist, David Horowitz. As he explained on a recent appearance on the Glenn Beck Show, “I have experience of this. I mean, I was a very intellectual leftist. I never threw a rock. But as the editor of Ramparts magazine, which is the biggest magazine of the left, I was approached … by a defector from our intelligence services. And we printed national secrets in the magazine and, of course, nothing, nothing happened to us. We were advised by, I was advised actually, by a Harvard law professor, still a professor of constitutional law on exactly how to commit treason”.
Here’s the problem America, many of the radical left from the 1960s are now the ruling class. They are in Congress. They work at the White House and they are in business. They run the New York Times and the Washington Post. Many of these people were part of the left in the Sixties. The only difference is today they have the power to force their agenda which hasn’t changed. Now however, their tactics are different. They are the new puppet masters, they can stir up the hate and bring the student activists into play. They are in a position to apply pressure on both the top and the middle. Make no mistake the progressives want to “fundamentally transform America”. They want a society that is based on socialism and “social justice”. People need to wake up! The progressives are concealing their real agenda. Healthcare reform, global warming, cap & trade, immigration reform, standing with the unions and all these new social programs have but one purpose: destroy the free markets which will increase government control.
If you believe in the Constitution, you must defend the free market system, you must defend private property, you must defend individual rights and you must oppose group collective rights. The progressives are against the First Amendment when you disagree with them. They are for racial references that create designated groups who they call oppressed. This is America, we do not allow oppression of our citizens. Our laws are being twisted and corrupted. The Constitution and most of our laws are designed to protect our individual rights but our laws do not guarantee level playing field. As individuals we are still responsible for ourselves and our own success. Socialism is about making everyone equal, redistributing wealth and punishing individual initiative.
The code language of socialism has permeated all levels of our educational system. It is the code language of the old Soviet Union. The slogan of the Communist Party at its’ height under Stalin was peace, jobs and democracy. The new code words are hope, change, redistribution of wealth and social justice. Students are taught to demand their rights – not their Constitutional rights but their perceived rights to things such as education, healthcare, good jobs and other entitlements. They are also taught that America is a selfish, imperialistic bully of a nation, that we should be embarrassed/ashamed of our riches and exceptionalism.
America has lost its’ way. The American Dream of prior generations has evolved into a culture of entitlement and consumerism. The original American dream was not merely a dream of big houses, fancy cars and high wages, but a dream of a social order in which each man or woman would be able to have the opportunity to attain to the success that they were innately of capable, regardless of the circumstances of birth. It was about a national experience of patriotism and a common success shared by many.
I was taught by my parents that with hard work, perseverance, integrity and dedication that I could create opportunities that would put me in a position to succeed. I taught my children the same and today all are working and supporting their families.
Sadly, today for many Americans it has degenerated into a culture that focuses on bringing prosperity to oneself. Greed, unethical behavior and overriding self interest for many have replaced patriotism, ethical behavior, hard work and a sense of community.
As we have added layer after layer to our social and entitlement programs our national debt and our need for tax revenue have taken on lives of their own. Many now believe that it is the responsibility of the federal government to take care of them.
It is time for a change! We must find a way to return to our core national values. Doing the right thing does not mean establishing an enormous federal government to provide nanny state oversight so that everything is equal among the citizens. Doing the right thing is creating the opportunity for everyone to succeed according to their abilities. There is no free lunch, not in America or anywhere else!
It is time to stop apologizing to the world for our success. As a citizen of the world we have been a good and giving nation. Can we be a better citizen of the world? Of course, so can every other country on the planet. But to save the country we love and to revive America we must return to our Constitutional government and the freedom it nurtures.
It is time for a National Day of Action. A day when Americans stop and remember what made us Americans, a day when we rededicate ourselves to the Constitution and to our original form of government – A Constitutional Republic.
Restore the Republic, Reject Socialism!
I’ll close with some words of wisdom from a few of our founding fathers and great leaders:
“If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy”. – Thomas Jefferson
“With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” — James Madison
“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson
“If you want total security, go to prison. There you’re fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking… is freedom”. – Dwight D. Eisenhower
“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” — Patrick Henry
“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have,” – Gerald Ford
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ -Ronald Reagan
“But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever”. – John Adams
