TURNING RED IN THE U.S. -- MORE CHAVEZ THAN ALINSKY
News Analysis Today
By Toby Westerman
The destruction of the Berlin
Wall in 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 appeared to be the end
of Communism as a world movement. Twenty years later, however, Marxist ideology
is prominent, if not dominant, among those (Van Jones, Mark Lloyd, etc.) surrounding
President Barack Obama, a man who has vowed to change America, and who is leading
America's proud and successful military to defeat in Afganistan.
The question which must be asked is, how could Marxism survive, and even prosper,
after its main international supporter, the much feared Soviet Union, completely
Some well-known pundits have speculated that the Socialist/Communist
threat to our God-given rights and our ability to defend ourselves against enemies
abroad originates from the Chicago community organizer, Saul Alinsky. This is
a basic error which deflects America's attention from an aggressive, hostile enemy
operating within the United States and which is actively cooperating with foreign
groups and national leaders sworn to destroy the U.S.
Alinsky developed controversial and confrontational methods which were used
by pressure groups usually against local government. Alinsky was not particular
about who used his tactics.
In Chicago, however, beginning around the mid-1970s,
those who were "movement" oriented did adopt some of Alinsky's tactics not only
to achieve power, but to advance the Marxist agenda in the United States. At that
point the street organizing methods of Alinsky were overtly joined to the wider
Socialist /Communist strategies being developed in the United States and other
Communists, who often refer to themselves as "internationalists," denounce the
ideological straightjacket imposed by past Soviet leaders. They are willing to
experiment, and look to Chavez, Castro's Cuba, Mao, as well as ultimately to Marx
and Lenin, for strategies and political dogma.
They are Communists seeking
to "get right" where they believe the Soviet Union "went wrong." Few took seriously
the assertions of Marxist true believers who declared that the end of the Soviet
Union was only a rejection of the dictator Josef Stalin who was its originator
- and not of Karl Marx, Lenin, or even a re-formed Soviet Union.
Vladimir (aka Nikolai) Lenin (born, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov), was the leader
of the Bolsheviks who established a Communist state in Russia. Many Communists
will point out that the Soviet state envisioned by Lenin was far less centralized
than what successor Josef Stalin put into practice (unless, of course, the observation
is by a Stalinist-brand of Communist).
It should not be forgotten that
while he sought a looser confederation of Communist "republics," Lenin was a master
at terror and repression, which laid the groundwork for Stalin's even greater
The idea of the spread of Communism without a central authority
is unfamiliar to many conservatives who remember the monolithic Soviet threat
and the concept of the inviolable "Party line," which, of course, could change
as circumstances warranted.
In China, the Communist Party began - and continues
with - an internal propaganda campaign to advocate "Socialism with Chinese characteristics."
Fidel Castro, one of the Soviet Union's most loyal allies, visited China in the
mid-1990s to personally observe Chinese communist efforts.
was an inspiration to Hugo Chavez, who currently rules Venezuela under the banner
of "21st Century Socialism," a separate Marxist franchise he is exporting across
Latin America, and into the United States.
There is, however, a constant
which bridges past Soviet-style Communism and the present group of Marxists: They
share with the Soviet Union the same belief in an all-powerful state which can
destroy individual freedoms at will by the energetic use of police powers - in
other words, the police state.
The evidence for Marxist influence in the
Obama administration ranges from overt communists as Prof. Bill Ayers (and "ex"-revolutionary
wife Bernadette Dohrn) to pro-Marxist physician Quentin Young and anti-capitalist
money man George Soros.
It is absolutely necessary to understand the "internationalist"/communist
presence in the Obama administration which reliably advocates measures hostile
to the traditions of the United States, from government-dictated redistribution
of wealth to suppressing freedom of speech on the Internet and talk radio.
willingness, even the enthusiastic zeal, to use state police powers to coerce
social cooperation is an obvious and key element in any Marxist program.
Conservatives must not make the profound mistake thinking that the thrust of
the radicals in the Obama administration is toward a "European Socialist" model,
as observed in Great Britain, France, and Germany. That would be bad enough, but
the desire of the "internationalists" in and around the Obama administration to
silence all opposition and control virtually all elements of society demonstrate
that their goal is their own brand of "Internationalism"/ Communism in the U.S.
also can discern the outline of a cult of personality used to support Chavez,
the Castro brothers, and which is traceable to Stalin's Soviet Union.
ability to support our armed forces is already in peril. If they become strong
enough, we can also expect to see the "Internationalist"/Marxist lobby seek to
make a strong push to make elections for House, Senate, and President merely ratifications
of Party dictates, using a combination of fraud, intimidation, and government
media control to obtain the desired results.
These events are not already
determined, there is still time to act, but we must first carefully and accurately
understand the threat which is upon us.

TERROR, AND THE RISE OF THE NEO-COMMUNIST EMPIRE: ORIGINS AND DIRECTION,
By Toby Westerman.
The author reveals the origins and direction of the
terror alliance between militant Islam, resurgent neo-communist nations and revolutionary
groups. This work focuses on questions the media dare not ask, including: Who
controls Russia? Did the Cold War really end? Is it possible to negotiate with
radical Islam? How does radical Islam work with neo-communist nations and rebel
groups? What does history teach us? Westerman's book is essential reading
for these times.
