Could Have Been Yesterday...

Stephen McCarthy of Xtremely Un-PC and Unrepentant (blog link on the roll) tipped me off to this cartoon that's making the rounds. The faces have changed, but the truth hasn't. This could have been written yesterday. We've known it was coming - why haven't we stopped it in all this time? Why have we allowed ourselves to be boiled in the vat of creeping socialism all along? Only now to have the BIG GUNS released in one fell swoop? Intelligence agencies destroyed and now useless, nationalization of everything, impossible and outlandish spending...well read 'em and weep. Click to embiggen.

The text reads as follows:

The banner across the top reads: "Planned Economy Or Planned Destruction?"

The bottle in the fist of the college scholar shouting "Whoopee!" is labeled "Power." The sign below them reads: "Young Pinkies from Columbia and Harvard."

The sign at the back of the wagon, below the drawing of Wallace shoveling money out, reads: "Depleting the resources of the soundest government in the world."

To the right, Stalin says approvingly, "How Red the sunrise is getting!"

And the piece de resistance: To the left is Trotsky (where else would you expect to find Trotsky?) who says, "It worked in Russia!" And on the poster he's creating it reads: "PLAN OF ACTION FOR U.S. --- Spend! Spend! Spend under the guise of recovery - Bust the government - Blame the capitalists for the failure - Junk the Constitution and declare a dictatorship."

I'll leave you to consider what's going on and where we are headed with this. We've taken it slow but we're there now. The beast is loose in the streets of Nazareth, the rats are in the corn...and God knows what rough beast, its hour come 'round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born.

Glad to see it posted on your Blog, Annie. The more people see this the better. If a cartoonist back in 1934 understood what was being done to the U.S., there's no excuse for anyone in 2009's "Information Age" not being able to discern the agenda as well. Only the willfully blind could fail to see. And if America is home to so many willfully blind that The Elite are able to pull it off anyway, then She deserves her fate.

I suppose all that the seeing can do is continue to stick this stuff "in their faces" and hope the eyes open in time.

I need to go write something funny now before I start to cry.

I know, it was sort of the point of my last post. I am sticking more to the humor myself these last weeks. (For reading, that is.) Many of us are losing heart...but before I head off to the funny pages I'd like to point out that there is more to it than willful blindness. Dewey, Holt, the fathers of modern education and the humanist manifesto, knew it would take an infiltration of education (which first means you must mandate it and then means you must make it government-controlled) in order to "win the battle for the hearts and minds of children in the classroom" from the "rotting corpse of Christianity." They declared that children arrived at the age of five with certain mentally sick beliefs and feelings - a belief in and love for their country, their family, and for God. That the purpose of education must become to root that out of them and change it to a love of state, to a love of self, to a love of man as the measure of all - to the common goal of socialism. They aroused the desire. Alinski taught those desirous children that violent revolution would not accomplish the goal, but continued infiltration. And here we seem to be at the apex. I hope I'm wrong but indications thus far don't seem to be that I am.

In that case our job is to safeguard the *information*; the knowledge, the truth. If there are to be future generations (and we must live as though there will be, even if it happens to be the end of the world) we have to pass down the knowledge - every **warning** that we were given, every light we were shown, all the truths we were told. What evil men did in order to accomplish these goals, how it all starts (slowly...so slowly. With ideas at first...just ideas.)

Heh...don't let it be forgot that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment... (got too sappy, had to break into song. Now I'M off to laugh before I cry.)

Very, very eloquently spoken, Annie. And passionately, too. But trust me, you're preaching to the choir; I'm up on all of that. Have been for many years extending to yonder distant past. (I dunno, it just sounded somewhat poetic. Forgive me.)

>>[In that case our job is to safeguard the *information*; the knowledge, the truth. If there are to be future generations (and we must live as though there will be, even if it happens to be the end of the world) we have to pass down the knowledge]<<

And I wholeheatedly concur with everything you wrote here. That's why I still spend a good deal of time and energy posting on my political Blog.

But what I meant about writing something funny, is that I have a second Blog where I can post lighter "STUFFS"; where I can just go and play and act goofy as hell. And I'm now working on my next goofy post, so my mind can take a brief break from the dreary, depressing world of politics.

Which reminds me... I didn't know at first what you meant about adding my political blog to your "Blog Roll", but I understand now what that meant. So, I sincerely thank you for the free promotion. My Blogs need all the help they can get because they go fairly unnoticed, while you seem to have acquired a regular following. Good for you!

Anyway, thanks again for the publicity. Fight On, Sister!

Dogs, Vomit, Fools, Folly...
The usual gig.

At the risk of sounding juvenile (which I guess I do act like some times, but that's another story...), back in the 80s the band Mike and the Mechanics had a couple of songs that I really liked. One was Silent Running, which I remembered from your comment, Annie, about how we need to teach the children the truth. The other one was Silent Running. Both songs about simple people rising up and fighting for their liberty.

AnnieMcPhee said...

Ok that's two Silent runnings, can I have a third? Hehe; if you can remember the other, let me know. I really like Mike and the Mechanics (the Christian influence in his music was certainly part of why, but also just the human emotion - The Living Years still kills me, as it came out right after my grandmother died and baby was born...sniff) so I can see where you're coming from there.

phthaloblu said...

Sorry! I meant the other one was Call to Arms.

AnnieMcPhee said...

Good, now I'll have to listen to all three songs tonight (including Living Years of course, I mean.)

Thanks!
