The Politics of Acceptance in a Game of Social Change

For instance, many people jump on the “wealth inequality” issue without examining the real issues behind wealth inequality, or how the federal government’s mishandling of our tax dollars contributes to it. They just blame whoever they are told to blame by people promising them stuff they don’t have to work for, which in turn, means they are also contributing to the problem they claim to care about.

Another example is gun control. I haven’t heard any cries for the need to keep guns out of the hands of criminals after a home invader shot a Tulsa man while he was home with his children. This was a clear cut example of why good people should be armed. Therefore, you hear nothing from the left.

These issues are used by the left to pull at the heart strings of the vulnerable and uninformed. A very compelling argument could be made, and I have made it several times, that our children are being intentionally dumbed down in order to accept that which they don’t understand, or worse yet, condition them to accept what they once never would. For the purpose of satisfying some of my more vocal critics, I don’t believe Obama is the only one responsible for this. I understand that Republicans have played their part as well.

The ideology of social change and the methods used to employ these strategies have fascinated me now for several years. It truly is like brainwashing, but in a way in which people are conditioned to accept it for themselves. (I’ll touch on that a bit more in a minute.) The greater significance of that statement rests in the fact that we live in a republic, in which the culture and structure of government can only be changed if “WE THE PEOPLE” want it to be changed. They can’t take our rights unless we “accept” that they can take them; hence, the need to get us to go along with their grand plans and social engineering schemes.

The best example that can be given is the attempts to rewrite the language of the Second Amendment in middle school text books in order to condition the minds of young people so they will be more persuadable as they grow into adulthood. Another example would be how the school system is suspending children for even thinking about a gun. They are using change strategies to scare children and change their perspective on gun ownership. Finally, the most significant example I can think of is when I personally witnessed a whole class of indoctrinated liberals give presentations in which they admitted to not knowing how racist they were until they have received their required “white privilege” education. These scenarios and others like them tend to rely on the use of the Delphi technique. Delphi typically employs methods which seek to shame others into going along with ideas which they normally wouldn’t. Two opposing sides of an issue are presented with the facilitator coaxing students into his or her predetermined solution, while techniques that ridicule any opposition to this solution are ruthlessly employed.

The real point I want to make is that I have come to the conclusion that these strategies of change are not only being employed against an unsuspecting population, but an unsuspecting government as well. I only came to this conclusion because, America, I was educated by the very people who hold radicals like Saul Alinsky in high regard. I was educated by radicals who taught their students that we should be striving to create a utopia. I swear to you I had one professor admit he was a communist and another, a socialist. I have seen these change strategies first hand folks, and that is why I can say with confidence what I am about to say. Cass Sunstein will love me for this by the way. I have come to suspect that all the policy issues we currently face all revolve around one common theme. It is a giant social experiment in which they seek to determine how to get the necessary players to accept that which they normally never would.

First it was Obamacare, and you have to admit, in the beginning we had some fierce opposition from the Republicans. Now, many of them are afraid to run on its repeal because of its controversial nature. In fact, there are Republicans who would just as soon let the law stay in place so no one will call them racist. The manner in which Chief Justice Roberts ruled on the law’s constitutionality was also very suspicious. Were they spying on him in the same manner in which they were just busted spying on the senate? Glenn Beck brought up the same question, but it was obvious from the start; Roberts was coerced into ruling in the manner he did.

Next we have the issue of amnesty. Another policy initiative which congressional Republicans vowed to prevent from happening, and now, after a couple years of being called racist, and being frustrated about how to reach out to Hispanic voters, that are essentially being fed at the trough. They are ready to cave on this issue as well. What’s next, the Second Amendment? Exactly.

While Republicans are caving on all of these policy issues, anti-gun liberals are attempting little by little to see what they can get away with by passing extreme anti-gun laws in several Democrat controlled states. They are using the same methodologies that they have employed in these other policy initiatives. The demonization of gun owners, fear campaigns, passing unread legislation in the middle of the night; (which is precisely how Obamacare was passed incidentally) and ignoring any facts that run contrary to their political objectives of gun control are all fair game. I have come to the conclusion, and if it makes me a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist then so be it, that everything revolves around gun confiscation. If the general public can be conditioned to accept Obamacare and amnesty because the “government cares,” then conditioning them to support gun confiscation for the same reason, when many millions already have an irrational fear of firearms, would, in theory, be a cinch.

Fortunately, there are some state legislatures that remember we live in a constitutional republic. States like Idaho and Georgia are passing legislation to keep the federal government away from gun owners’ rights, as should all states. The question remains, however, ; what good will it do if our children are being conditioned to hate guns? When they grow up, and if the desired impact of an anti-gun, socialist indoctrination has been achieved, then we will only have another generation ready and willing to surrender their rights. This is the politics of acceptance in a game of social change.

AMERICAN SUICIDE

By: Frank RomanRepublic in pieces American suicide

Wherever you stand, please take the time to read this; it ought to scare the pants off you.We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado (Democrat). In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Recently there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, “Mexifornia,” explaining how immigration both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, “If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in
history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'””Here is how they do it,” Lamm said:”First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country.” History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way:”The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.”Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficult times with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.”Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America,

“Invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, “We could make the United States an ‘Hispanic Quebec’ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: “The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.” Lamm said, “I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing
their similarities.”

“Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.”

“My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology.’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.”

“My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided
loyalties I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostl engaged in hating each other that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common Language and literature; and they worshipped the same Gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. “E. Pluribus Unum” from many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘Pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will Balkanize America assuredly as Kosovo.”

“Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bi-lingual/bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis  Hanson’s book “Mexifornia.” His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today.

Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America take note of California and other states to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book “1984.” In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: “War is peace,” “Freedom is slavery,” and “Ignorance is strength.”

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path especially The American Dream. If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did for you.

NOTHING is exactly what will happen if you don’t.

Feel like I’m repeating myself when I say that this can apply to any Western nation in which multiculturalism has been imposed, and in which cultural Marxism is deep rooted into all cultural institutions. Can not any citizen of any given white nation relate to the 8 point plan to destroy America as is posted above. Unfortunately only some of us do understand it, some white Westerners actually desire this, which whilst sad, is the biggest example of treachery known to man, to want and facilitate your own people and nations downfall was once punishable by death. In times gone by, traitors would have swung from the neck until dead. Remember, that those people who are now actively involved in supporting such cultural destruction, are the same people who are creating conditions in which our children will suffer due to that treachery, and in many cases due to our own failings and apathy regarding the situation. The white western children of the future will be the children of the revolution, but is that what we really want for them. Should not we, in the here and now do everything we can to bring to peoples attention what the future holds for them, and what will happen if we continue down this road of suicidal bliss.
