In 1976, France’s Justice Minister Jean Lecanuet was quoted in a Time magazine article making this prescient warning:
“The Communists are in the middle of an identity crisis and are taking up the mask of a certain reformism. If they ever came to power, the mask would fall.”
In America, former 1960s radical David Horowitz sounded a similar warning:
“The most basic principle of [Obama’s ideological mentor Saul] Alinsky’s advice to radicals is, lie to your opponents and potential opponents and disarm them by pretending to be moderates, liberals. This has been the most potent weapon of the left since the end of the Sixties. Racists like Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright posing as civil rights activists, radicals like Henry Waxman and Barney Frank posing as liberals.”
Horowitz is right: “Liberal” and “progressive” are just masks they’ve been hiding behind. But now the mask is off. The Left are revealing their true face. Here’s the evidence:
- On October 2, 2010, at the so-called One Nation Rally in Washington, D.C., liberals-Democrats-progressives finally came right out and openly admitted they’re SOCIALISTS and COMMUNISTS.
- In May 2010, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) sued the Democrat Party for “stealing” the CPUSA’s platform. CPUSA admitted that the so-called “new” Democratic agenda is, in fact, the product of a decades-long, painstaking campaign by CPUSA theorists, agitators, and underground subversive cells – which makes it the intellectual property of the Communist Party USA, protected by American copyright laws. “They stole our entire platform, rebranded it ‘progressive’, and claimed it as their own,” declared a CPUSA spokesperson at a press conference in San Francisco.
Now, in her article of November 30, 2010, “From France’s Warning To America,” Rachel Marsden tells us that in 1983 during a talk in Los Angeles, KGB propaganda expert Yuri Bezmenov had exposed the communists’ blueprint on how to subvert America. The following is excerpted from Marsden’s article:
Bezmenov identified six areas of ideological subversion of a population which would go unnoticed by the average person, much like one would not “notice the movement of the small hand of a clock.”
Religion: Bezmenov points out that a religious society cannot be subverted easily because of steadfast basic principles and values….
Education: Bezmenov suggests that subversion is facilitated when hard subjects such as science, math, physics and foreign languages are replaced with “history of urban warfare, natural foods, and home economics, and sexuality.” Anything that takes the student away from critical thinking and the ability to make up one’s own mind about the world…. Control its education, control its elite graduates.
Social life: Bezmenov says that when established links between individuals and groups of individuals are taken away and replaced by imposed, artificial institutions – “artificially democratically controlled bodies” – the chances of subverting the system increases. [Examples include social workers, state-run daycare centers, an extensive government welfare system, which render citizens increasingly dependent on the state.] …Bezmenov warns: “People are on the payroll of who? Society? No, bureaucracy.” Every time a… president tries to cut government spending or wean these workers off the government payroll and towards a more independent existence free of state control, he is met with fervent opposition [from unions].
Power structure: Bezmenov defines how unelected groups of people can control elected representatives. He is not only talking about the EU, but also something much more powerful on a national level: the media….
Labor relations: Destroying the traditionally established links between employer and employee, notes Bezmenov, leads ultimately to the traditional Marxist-Leninist exchange and “the death of natural bargaining.” This is where unions come in. The leaders’ positions are secure and well-funded, but the individual’s right to bargain and sell his work on his own behalf is suppressed along with his economic freedom. When union bosses order a strike, millions spill out into the streets on command….backed by the media’s bumper-sticker, “workers’ rights,” “class struggle” rhetoric.
Law and order: Bezmenov explains that subversion of society towards anarchy occurs through mocking and devaluing figures of law and order…[who defend] traditional Western values against cultural affronts such as the hijab and polygamy, deporting illegal immigrants, or cracking down on [violent criminals]…. Anarchy becomes the new authority: “A slow substitution of basic moral principles where a criminal is not a criminal – he’s a defendant,” says Bezmenov. Much like…today…[where] illegal aliens have come to be referred to as [mere “illegal immigrants” and “undocumented workers”]….
The Cold War did not end, it just found new battlefields. Bezmenov’s warnings date back 30 years. He said it would take about 15-20 years for an ideology to become entrenched in a society, using the weaknesses in societal structures.
It is now 27 years after Bezmenov made this revelation. So how is America doing according to this blueprint? By my count, all six areas identified in the blueprint are subverted.
Another good document to read is the warning sounded by Florida Congressman A. S. Herlong, Jr., in 1963: “Communist Goals For America.” Read it for yourself to see the “progress” the enemies of freedom have made in just our lifetime — all in the name of “liberalism” and “progressivism.”
It’s later than you think….
