The Acceptance of Communism in America


Syndicated talk show host and American patriot Rusty Humphries recently published a column at HumanEvents.com where he laments the election of self described socialist Kshama Sawant to the city council in the city of his childhood, Seattle, Washington.  Ms. Sawant has openly praised the recently enacted $15 per hour minimum wage enacted by the nearby city of SeaTac.  Humphries points out that Ms. Sawant will more than likely be one of the last people to accept the blame for the fallout when the unemployment rate skyrockets in that community, and when many of the people she (Sawant) says are being protected can’t eat at restaurants there anymore, because it’s too expensive.  Humphries wrote about his father, Capt. Gary D. Humphries, who was killed in Vietnam on January 26, 1969, while fighting the spread of communism and boldly questioned, “So, let me try to understand this. My father died trying to stop the spread of communism, and now some of my former classmates and colleagues voluntarily voted to put it in the city where I grew up?”

Sadly, it’s true.  An alarming number of (so-called) Americans actually prefer Socialism/ Communism to a capitalistic philosophy in which those who formulate the best ideas and work the hardest are rewarded more than those who think and/ or work very little.  Such an erosion of American/ Christian values can be observed throughout the nation through incidents such as the one perpetrated at Helen Hunt-Jackson Elementary School (which does teach the Common Core Curriculum) within the Temecula School District in Southern California on December 19, 2013, in which the First Amendment right to freedom of religion of little six-year old Brynn Williams was maliciously violated in a first grade classroom by her teacher (name unavailable) and then by Principal Ami Paradise, who upheld the teacher’s discrimination against her right to speak about the meaning of her Christianity (which to anyone with common sense involves Jesus) during Christmas time.  The religious persecution of six-year old Brynn is reflective of an educational culture in which the highly controversial left wing Common Core standards are taught.  Author Phyllis Schlafly characterizes Common Core in this manner, “The readings assigned are fifty percent informational texts instead of great American and English literature and classics. The result is that CC standards are very political…. The suggested readings include a sales talk for government health care (such as Obamacare) and global warming propaganda (including a push for Agenda 21). Some of the fiction suggested is worthless and even pornographic, presumably chosen to reflect contemporary life. Another suggested reading favorably describes Fidel Castro and his associates without any indication they are tyrants, Communists and mass murderers.”

Schlafly’s concern for global warming propaganda being grounded in Communism is well-founded as well.  To observe a link between the climate change awareness and socialist movements, one need look no further than former American “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones, hired by fellow Marxist, President Barack Obama.  Jones just happened to be the founder of California’s Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. According to Kathy Shaidle at theexaminer.com, the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights was connected to STORM (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement), a “multi-racial activist collective with Marxist influences” with which Jones was involved. Shaidle reports that in a 2005 interview with the East Bay Express Jones said,I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.” 

There is substantial evidence of a global link between these movements as well.  The World at a Crossroads: Climate Change- Social Change Conference II took place on Friday, September 30 through Monday, October 3, 2011 at Sidney Myer Asia Centre, Melbourne University in Australia.

Communists/ Socialists intend to achieve a transfer of wealth through enforcement of global environmental directives and agreements.

The website environment-ecology.com establishes the connection as It says,

But recent events show that there is great reason for hope and inspiration, because masses of ordinary people are determined to fight for social justice and human survival, even if most governments aren’t. When peoples of the Arab world rise up and overthrow dictators; when the revolutionary government of tiny Bolivia refuses to bow down to the rich countries’ attempts to impose fake solutions to climate change; when millions of workers, students and unemployed take to the streets of Greece, France and Wisconsin saying “enough is enough”; when asylum seekers in Australia’s refugee prisons won’t stop protesting despite severe repression; and when Wikileaks reveals the moral bankruptcy of international capitalism for all to see, we know that it is possible to rescue and change our world.

The second Climate Change-Social Change conference aims to contribute towards understanding and collective action, in Australia and internationally, to urgently address the climate and social emergencies that we must overcome if humanity and the planet are to not only survive, but thrive.

And thus the globalists have tried to create the perfect storm scenario, in which they can attempt to achieve forced economic equality through the enactment of intenational environmental protocol.  John Bellamy Foster summed up the goal of the eco-socialists with this chilling statement on The World at a Crossroads: Climate Change- Social Change Conference II, “A global ecological revolution can only occur as part of a larger social revolution”. Chilling, very chilling indeed.

History has shown that a Communist/ Socialist revolution will be totally disconnected from Christianity.  Russia, China, and almost all of the eastern bloc countries throughout the cold war attempted to curtail activities related to the worship of Jesus and Jehovah.  There is no reason to believe that this version of attempted implementation of Marxist principles will be any different than recent attempts (1900 to present) at Communist totalitarianism, that resulted in poverty, despair, and death for thousands of people throughout the world.

Help! We need a translator for this Common Core ‘math’ problem


Shayn Roby’s Take:  Supposedly, “research based” Common Core curriculum is taking the very simple, and making it so that even the most educated have trouble understanding basic concepts using their poorly planned pedagogy. Numerous other examples of pedagogical incompetence have been documented recently.  One third grade problem posted by a distraught mother at MomDot.com is an example of the unnecessary complexity in the teaching of elementary math concepts being set forth by so-called educational experts.
