Exposing Americaâ€™s Enemies: the â€˜Social Justice Seekingâ€™ Communist Left
By: Linda Kimball
On one hand, Americans were outraged and appalled by the 1 May immigrant demonstrations that clogged streets and virtually closed down some cities. Law abiding citizens saw lawbreakers who not only seemed to feel justified in their criminal behavior, but also believed they ought to be rewarded for it.
On the other hand, Americans are more infuriated and disgusted with their duly elected government officials in both legislative and administrative branches for not enforcing the law and protecting the rights of citizens. President Bush and the weak-kneed GOP have deservedly come under fire. However, if our sovereign nation is to survive, I is of paramount importance that the harsh light of truth be focused upon the subversive element responsible for creating an atmosphere conducive to lawlessness and tyrannical militants brazenly declaring their intentions to â€˜conquerâ€™ the Southwest and to throw Americans out of their homes and off of their land.
The subversive elementâ€”a motley collection of Marxists, Stalinists, Trotskyists, Maoists, anarchists and malcontentsâ€”organized themselves in the 60â€™s and became known as the New Left. For over forty years the New Left has been waging a Gramscian â€˜quietâ€™ revolution for the overthrow of the America of our Founders. Today these subversives call themselves liberals, progressives and Democrats. Even though there yet remain good, decent Democrats such as Zell Miller, the majority as David Horowitz attested to, are social justice seeking communists. â€œThe Democratic Party is very close to being the (Communist-controlled Progressive) party of Henry Wallaceâ€¦The vast bulk of the American left is a Communist left and theyâ€™ve introduced some fascist ideas like â€œidentity politics,â€ which is straight out of Mussolini.â€ (How Marxism Dominates the Left, Phil Brennan, NewsMax.com, June 1, 2005)
Americas Communist Left operates in a vast interconnected matrix of revolutionary groups disguised as respectable civil rights and legal organizations. These front groups have consistently worked towards the transformation of America through subversion of Americaâ€™s Rule of Law, Constitution, judiciary, and all institutions necessary to the longevity and health of our nation and civilization. These groups attack all national security measures, subvert immigration laws and procedures, lobby on behalf of terrorist and enemy combatants and engage in propagandistic apologetics for the most brutal dictatorships in the world even as they constantly vilify and demean America and Americans. As they do these things to destroy America and shame Americans, they hypocritically portray themselves as defenders of democracy and humanity.
The purpose of this article is to expose, at least in part, some of the principal communist groups responsible for undermining and weakening America and who likewise serve as a power source, not only for the militant Marxist organizers of the recent demonstrations, but for Islamic jihadists as well.
The Quiet Revolution
In 1984, â€œThe Power to Leadâ€ was published. In it, author James McGregor Burns admitted: â€œThe Framers of the US Constitution have simply been too shrewd for us. They have outwitted us. They designed separate institutions that cannot be unified by mechanical linkages, frail bridges, tinkering. If we are to â€˜turn the Founders upside downâ€™â€¦we must directly confront the constitutional structure they erected.â€ (A Chronological History: The New World Order by D.L. Cuddy PhD)
Turning the â€˜Founders upside downâ€™ and directly confronting the â€˜constitutional structureâ€™ are what the American Civil Liberties Union, National Lawyers Guild, and The Center for Constitutional Rights are committed to doing. Together, these three communist front groups comprise the â€œlegal left,â€ and they slash and rip at the fabric of the constitutional framework.
The ACLU was established in 1920 by Roger Baldwin, a Stalinist who candidly admitted: â€œI am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately, for abolishing the state itself.â€ On the Communist Party USA website, the ACLU can be found at this link: http://www.cpusa.org/link/category/22/
When not working with and defending terrorists like Sami al-Arian, the ACLU terrorizes towns into removing Ten Commandments monuments and crosses and persecutes and intimidates Boy Scouts and law abiding Christians. The ACLUâ€™s Immigrant Task Force and Immigrant Rights Project are a dual driving force in the Open Borders Lobby. Among current projects: dissolving Americaâ€™s borders, erasing all evidence of Christianity and God and requiring the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to provide free legal counsel to illegals while simultaneously demanding that illegals be provided with full welfare benefits.
The ACLU and its partner groups receive funding from a large assortment of subversive leftist funders. Among them: Arca Foundation, Ford Foundation, George Soros Open Society Institute, Rockefeller Foundation, Woods Fund of Chicago (Source: www.DiscoverTheNetwork.org)
The National Lawyers Guild was founded in 1936 by the Communist Party USA. The NLG is an active affiliate of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers, which served as a Soviet front group during the Cold War. The NLG defines its mission as an effort to: â€œunite lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jailhouse lawyers of America (to) function as an effective political and social forceâ€¦to the end that human rights shall be regarded as more sacred than property interests.â€ In other words, their mission is to â€˜deKulakizeâ€™ America in the name of social justice.
In 1999, NLG member Chip Berlet described a Guild â€˜communist debateâ€™ session: â€œThe cacophony at some meetings (arises from) debates featuringâ€¦Leninist, Trotskyite, Stalinistsâ€¦Maoistâ€¦Marxist, anarchists, libertarians and progressive independentsâ€¦with multiple identities as lawyers, legal workers, labor organizers, tribal sovereignty activists, civil liberties and civil rights advocates, environmentalists, feminists, gay men and lesbians, and people of color.â€ Chip Berlet is an activist with Morris Dees Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), another communist front group and Open Borders member.
Not coincidentally, it was the SPLC that â€˜redistributedâ€™â€”in the name of social justiceâ€”an Arizona ranchersâ€™ property to some illegal aliens. This incident was detailed in an article entitled: â€œTwo Illegal Immigrants Win Arizona Ranch in Court,â€ New York Times, 8/19/05. Dees was quoted as saying, â€œâ€¦itâ€™s poetic justice that these undocumented workers own this landâ€
Like the ACLU, the NLG is a key member of the Open Borders Lobby. Itâ€™s National Immigration Project consists of a network of lawyers, law students and legal workers committed to â€œfull democratic rights for all non-citizensâ€—in the name of social justice. The NLG receives funding from, among others, the George Soros Open Society Institute and the Ford Foundation. (Source: www.DiscoverTheNetwork.org)
The last of the trio is the Center for Constitutional Rights. It was founded in 1966 by pro-Castro attorneys Morton Stavis, Ben Smith, Arthur Kinoy, and William Kuntsler.
The CCR prides itself on using â€œlitigation proactively to advance the law in a positive direction to guarantee the rights of those with the fewest protections.â€ This is communist code for: â€œWe subvert Americaâ€™s laws.â€ Among those deemed by the CCR to be in need of protection are terrorist organizations, enemy combatants, and illegal immigrants.
The CCR receives funding from the Ford Foundation and George Soros Open Society Institute. (Source: www.DiscoverTheNetwork.org)
Two principal front groups, both of whom disguise their treachery as â€˜civil rights,â€ are United for Peace and Justice and Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride.
The UFPJ is a rabidly anti-American, anti-war coalition co-chaired by committed communist Leslie Cagan. Cagan, who worships upon Fidel Castroâ€™s altar, was an original founder of the Committees of Correspondence, a splinter group of the Communist Party USA. The UFPJ was created Oct. 25, 2002 in the Washington D.C. offices of People for the American Way, which played a key role in forming UFPJ. UFPJ is a sponsoring organization of the Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride.
UFPJâ€™s social justice agenda extends well beyond anti-war activism as it is also a pro-abortion, pro-open borders advocate that condemns nearly every aspect of American culture and our governmentâ€™s foreign policy. (Source: www.DiscoverTheNetwork.org)
The Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride (IWFR), another key player in the Open Borders Lobby, is supported by the ACLU and Communist Party USA. Additionally, it has the backing of Dennis Kucinich, Howard Dean and Joe Lieberman.Among other groups listed as members of the IWFRCâ€™s national sponsoring committee are ACORN, National Council of La Raza, National Immigration Forum, and United for Peace and Justice.
At the link below are literally hundreds of sponsors of IWFR, such as: Democratic Senators, Representatives, County Board Supervisors, Governors, town council members, radical organizations, liberalized Christian and non-Christian churches, political parties (including CPUSA and Democratic Socialists of America). http://www.iwfr.org/endorsement.asp
Many thousands of Americans have been taken in by a myth. The myth states that communism died when the Soviet Union imploded. It further says that in these â€˜enlightened progressive times,â€™ only superstition-believing McCarthyite rednecks still believe in the communist boogieman. The myth of course, was created by New Left communists to whom seduction, deception, and psychological manipulation are the â€˜rules of the game.â€™ Gramsciâ€™s transformational revolution is very much alive. Itâ€™s spreading the cancer of godless communismâ€”the ideology from Hellâ€”throughout the length and breadth of our culture–corrupting and decaying everything it touches.
President Ronald Reagan cautioned that: â€œâ€¦without God, there is no virtue because thereâ€™s no prompting of the conscience. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that weâ€™re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.â€
Americans—awaken and remember!
