A COUNTER-OFFENSIVE TO MARXIST IDEOLOGIES
by RoseAnn Salanitri, ©2015, TPATH Contributor
Although some have a rudimentary knowledge of these strategies, none seem to understand how to combat them. Before attempting to devise a counter-offensive, we would do well to understand their basic principles and what made them so successful. After that we can begin to create rules of our own to dethrone their demagogues and hopefully reverse the damage they have done. Then and only then can we begin to transform our defensive game into an offensive one.
First – understand that this is about power. For Alinsky’s followers, creating a power base is a means to an end. While he paints this picture in altruistic terms, his deceptive strategies reveal the true evil nature of his intentions. It is exemplified by his hero and the person he dedicated his book to: none other than the master deceiver, the father of lies, the accuser of the brethren, and first rebel: Lucifer. For those who think logically, it follows that corrupt and deceptive means cannot produce a noble end. In this regard, Alinsky’s tactics are similar to that of Islam’s – both sanction lies and deceit to achieve their end goal. While Alinsky preaches that the end of capitalism represents freedom, history has shown that varying forms of Marxism/Communism/Taoism/Socialism/Nazism in the last century have led to the deaths of 100,000,000 people – all in the name of ushering in Utopia.
Additionally, the Cloward and Piven model has successfully overwhelmed our economic system to the point of collapse with welfare recipients, and all of the 45 Goals of the Communist Party have been met that called for the corruption of our morals through our educational system, instituting free trade agreements, empowering and infiltrating the UN, and creating a one-party system that masquerades as a two-party system, etc. The combination of all of these destructive models working in harmony has produced a plethora of crises that methodically ridicule their opponents with charges of racism or worse – just ask Donald Trump or Sarah Palin how difficult it can be to defend against such strategies. As for their affect on the American Patriot Movement, so much has gone wrong in such a short period of time that it is virtually impossible to maintain focus on any one crisis. However, focusing on the restoration of our Constitutional Republic is what we need to do if we are to remain a free and independent people.
All this would not have been possible if the vast majority of patriots today had the skills and knowledge to effectively articulate their point of view. Their inability to give a proper defense for their beliefs have allowed these Luciferian ideologies to permeate all corners of society. Alinsky’s radicals and Cloward and Piven’s disciples, therefore, have been able to instill a perverse meaning for oppression that persuades the Have-Not’s that they are the victims of the Have’s – and not the victims of their own inability to take advantage of the opportunities available to them in a capitalistic system.
For this venue, I will keep it as simple as possible and break down my proposed counter-offensive to two basic Rules and Challenges.
RULE #1: This Rule is based on a Biblical directive. It tells us that we are to be ready in season and out of season to give a reason for the hope that is within us. If we apply this principle to our current situation, it translates into being ready to properly explain why we believe socialism doesn’t work and why we are committed to capitalism, which can only survive in a liberty-loving environment.
Rule #1 leads to Challenge #1.
CHALLENGE #1: Educate yourself on the failed ideas of all the “isms” mentioned above that have resulted in tyrannical power grabs and genocide. While all were based on promises of ushering in heaven on earth, all delivered hell on earth. Historically they have proven to be nothing more than a well-disguised vehicle operated by malevolent tyrants for the purpose of enslaving rather than providing equality. As a consequence, millions upon millions of people were persecuted and exterminated. These crazed tyrants talked a good talk that inspired many but ultimately preyed on the millions who were naive enough to believe their well-crafted rhetoric. Again – educate yourself – educate yourself – educate yourself. You cannot help others understand the pitfalls of the isms if you don’t understand them yourself. Again – take our cue from the Bible. We are to be ambassadors for Christ – the author of our liberty. And any good ambassador has a good understanding of whom and what is he or she is representing.
RULE #2: Network. Alinsky understood that there are two sources of power: money and people. The patriot movement may not have the money and consequently the media outlets that those in the Alinsky model have acquired, but it is wealthy with people.
CHALLENGE #2: After meeting challenge #1, we will be well equipped to launch persuasive arguments that support capitalism and liberty. Now we must launch. Preaching to the choir will not change the downward spiral generated by socialist professors, media moguls, and racist opportunists (such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Louis Farrakhan). We must re-educate the masses who have been led to believe that the isms are good things. This may seem like a huge task but it can actually be done with a minimum of effort.
To meet this challenge, consider that we all have publications or blogs that we subscribe to, and social media links that are effective in communicating the truths of what we are facing. You don’t have to re-invent the wheel but you do have to keep it rolling. This can be done in two ways:
1. by printing the best of the essays you read and distributing them wherever possible within your community or other places you tend to frequent, including but not limited to restrooms, bulletin boards, and restaurant entryways; and
2. by distributing them electronically to all of your social media outlets and on your email lists with the request that those whom you are reaching do likewise. We may not have a media outlet that serves as the country’s watchdog but the good news is that we can become our own media outlet with very little effort.
This approach may seem overly simple but its affects can be far reaching. Our Founding Fathers created a system of networking they called Christian Committees of Correspondence. Their system enabled them to communicate important information with each other without the benefit of of the advanced communication systems available to us today. Surely with the technology we have available to us now, any excuse for not being able to network is invalid.
If we apply these two simple Rules and meet these Challenges, we can begin the process of transforming America – this time for the glory of God and the preservation of liberty. These Rules and Challenges might not be a comprehensive plan but they can educate our citizens about the truth, which can lead to major changes in the way Americans think – and hence in the way they vote. I believe it’s high time we mobilize as best we can and turn this nation around. Under unimaginable odds, our Founding Fathers did not submit to the slavery of tyrants. Their commitment to liberty birthed this nation. Will our commitment preserve it? We must rise to the challenges of our day and overcome the power of would-be tyrants with common sense and committed efforts. To do less, is to do something – chose what is right and do not be deceived by the servants of the great deceiver.
