Defining Features of Progressive Communism, the Enemy Within

Though Conservatives and Christian Conservatives in particular are demonized as enemies of progress, the real source of the cancer that's been eating away our Constitutional Republic for over sixty years are modern communists camouflaged as progressives dedicated to the destruction of this country.  In “The Threat We Face: what is the nature of the adversary we are up against?” David Horowitz argues that the president, his chief operative Valerie Jarrett and his chief political strategist David Axelrod all came out of the same Communist left and the same radical new left as he did,

“….and all have remained heart and soul a part of it. As someone who turned his back on that destructive movement, I can say with confidence that they have not. If a person belongs to an organization or is the supporter of an idea that they come to see as destructive or evil, the first thing they will want to do when they leave is to warn others against it, to warn them of the dangers it represents. If a person does not do this – that tells me that he or she hasn’t left the destructive movement or abandoned the pernicious idea but has just put another face on them. Instead of calling themselves communists or socialists they call themselves liberals and progressives. This camouflage is very old. I never once heard my parents and their party friends refer to themselves as Communists. They were progressives – and registered Democrats.” (frontpagemag.com, October 9, 2013

Horowitz outlines four defining features of the left:

1. Alienation from country:

If you ask progressives about their patriotic feeling, they will tell you that they don’t think of themselves first as Americans but as “citizens of the world.”

2. Corruption: the key to understanding the left is its instinctive, practiced, and indispensable dishonesty.

3. Contempt for and rejection of the past is the third feature that defines progressive politics.  Progressives contemptuously disregard the past, which is real, and focus exclusively on an imaginary evolutionary ascension or future: 

To understand why this is important, think of progressives as a species of religious fundamentalists planning a redemption. Like fundamentalists they look at the world as fallen – a place corrupted by racism, sexism and class division. But the truly religious understand that we are the source of corruption and that redemption is only possible through the work of a Divinity. In contrast, progressives see themselves as the redeemers, which is why they are so dangerous. Because they regard those who oppose them as the eternally damned. Progressives are on a mission to create the kingdom of heaven on earth by redistributing income and using the state to enforce politically correct attitudes and practices in everyone’s life. They want to control what you do, and who you are, and even what you eat. For your own good, of course.”

4. Since Progressives see themselves as saving the world – or “saving the planet” as they would prefer — they regard politics as a religious war:

This explains why they are so rude and nasty when you disagree with them or resist their panaceas (and of course if they had the power, the punishments would be more severe); that is why the politics of personal destruction is their favorite variety, why they are verbal assassins and go directly for the jugular, and why they think nothing of destroying the reputations of their opponents and burying them permanently. And that is why they can perform their character assassinations without regrets – or did I miss Obama’s apology to Romney for accusing him of killing a woman with cancer during the campaign? Why apologize when you did it for the good of a world transforming cause?”

Paul Hollander's book "Political Pilgrims: Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society" recounts what depraved Leftist progressive intellectuals and apostate priests did for many decades on behalf of saving the planet during the Soviet era. To quote one Amazon reviewer:

"Political Pilgrims is the amazing story of how Western intellectuals embraced Marxist tyrants at the very moment their colleagues were rotting in prison cells, and the common people everyone claimed to be concerned for, were starving. The book relates how cultural and religious leaders from the West, including familiar names, visited the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and other communist countries, and told the most appalling lies."

The blood of millions of men, women, and children stains the hands of progressive leaders from the West who covered up the most monstrous evils with appalling lies, revised history, mind-control techniques and propaganda:

"As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin — Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)

"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)

"... On one side, millions of starving peasants, their bodies often swollen from lack of food; on the other, soldiers, members of the GPU carrying out the instructions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They had gone over the country like a swarm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile land in the world to a melancholy desert." (ibid, Malcolm Muggeridge, British foreign correspondent, "War on the Peasants," Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933)

In “The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture,” David Kupelian chronicles the decline and fall of America and shows that it was deliberately orchestrated by God-hating progressives. Compared with the decent, morally ordered, child and family-friendly nation it once was, today’s progressive dominated America is a different country altogether.  It is deeply and angrily,

“.... divided, unable to deal with crises foreign or domestic, the world’s greatest debtor nation with 50 million people on food stamps, rampant divorce and family breakdown, unprecedented sexual anarchy with 110 million with STDs, almost 60 million abusing alcohol, and over 70 million taking mood-altering drugs. On so many levels, America is becoming ever more “bizarre”—diametrically opposed to logic and common sense. Although America’s bizarro transformation has been in progress for decades, it burst into full bloom in the age of Obama. ” (p. 10)

Here’s how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes bizarro America, where according to the U.S. government North is an extremist (state enemy) because:

” I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study Gods word. My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of life, oppose abortion and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and woman. I am a veteran with skills and knowledge from military training and combat. I own several firearms, frequently shoot them, buy ammunition and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I frequently support the sovereignty of the United States, am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt. Apparently, all this makes me a ‘right-wing extremist.’ At least that’s what it says in the April 7, 2009 ‘assessment’ issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security.” (ibid, pp. 14-15)

In upside-down progressive dominated and debauched America, many key Biblical, political, and cultural concepts actually amount to their opposite. For example, the Genesis account ex nihilo is backward, anti-science superstition; the two-sexes, male and female and traditional marriage are slavery; the words 'discernment, discrimination, and judgment' conjure up clouds of negativity and foreboding; sin is not sin but self-actualization; tolerance means mandatory celebration of vice; charity is entitlement; envy is righteousness; theft is economic justice; abortion is choice; faith is ignorance; Lucifer is mans’ genetic creator, and the world we live in is a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings. This is the “scientific” theory put forward by a number of progressive physicists and Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association.

While thoroughly corrupt progressives see the signs of addiction to pornography and other vices, lawlessness and insanity over-spreading our nation as signs of progress cheered on by large numbers of morally-debauched liberals, some Americans choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to what is going on while still others foresee only disaster.  Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn however, holds out hope, our only hope,  to a weary, spiritually disconsolate people.  In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, “Men Have Forgotten God,” he stated,

All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all; without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain.”

Proverbs 30:12-- The Evil Ruling Class and its' Senseless Liberal Fan-Club

Harper-Mercer wanted to die as a mass-murderer, said Pat Buchanan. And we're going to have more of these massacres. Why? Because we rewarded Harper-Mercer for his barbarity in the currency he craved, the only currency he cared about: fame and immortality in this world:

"In a de-Christianized America where no higher law exists, killing is a commonplace occurrence, and the popular culture is polluted by raw sex and violence, what answer does society give to the Harper-Mercers who are willing to kill in large numbers to become famous? We are not the rules-based society we once were. We have junked the Christian code, embraced absolute social freedom, and dispensed with the moral sanctions."  (The Allure of Mass Murder, Patrick J. Buchanan, Oct. 9, 2015)

The real source of the evil responsible for de-Christianizing America and unleashing the devil in liberals, thereby creating a Godless culture polluted by relativism, raw sex, obscene perversions, abortion, and violence, is a criminal elite, a parasitic confederacy of occult Progressive god-men and atheist GOP elites and transnational corporatists and bankers described by Professor Angelo Codevilla as America’s Left-Right Ruling Class.   While most Americans pray to the Holy Trinity Who created all men in His spiritual image, the Ruling Class:

"...prays to themselves as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image,"  ("The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It," Codevilla, p. xix)

As god-men the evil Ruling Class naturally think decent, morally-ordered Americans are un-evolved hominids completely unfit to run their own lives, and since the Holy Trinity and morality are anathema to them the overriding concern of the Ruling Class,

"....has been to denigrate the American people's devotion to God, because the Ruling Class accepts no standard it cannot control." (ibid, p. xx)

To protect its' satanic self-conception as gods, the Ruling Class stealthily replaced the Holy Trinity with Darwinism, the Bible with scientism, orthodox priests with pseudo-priests of science such as the babbling sophist Richard Dawkins, and the First Commandment with "Thou shall worship no other God but the Ruling Class."

However, according to Holy Scripture, the Ruling Class and their Liberal fan-club are fools:

 "All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the spirit." Proverbs 16:2"The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice." Proverbs 12:15   

The Ruling Class and their mindless fan-club are of an evil generation who are pure in their own eyes, yet are not washed from their filthiness. (Prov. 30:12) Though the evil view themselves as faultless, in reality they willfully blind themselves to their own faults, suppress the truth in unrighteousness, and deceive themselves and others because their conscience is depraved, and a depraved conscience is the most destructive force in theological, political, social, economic, and cultural life. This is because though the intellect remains intact, reason is warped and peculiarly inverted, thus useless for pursuit of the good, the just, the true and the sane. In short, guided by a depraved conscience, the evil use reason in pursuit of the preservation of self-image and self-gratification at any cost. This is sophistry, or Progressive and Liberal Illogic 101.

In a penetrating analysis of sophistry, J. Budziszewski, professor of government at the University of Texas, Austin,  observes that the sophists' view of reality is paradoxical because it ultimately denies reality. Thus sophists are shock troopers of evil says Budziszewski, and according to their satanically-inverted view of reality:

"Man is the measure of all things, but man has no fixed nature. Man measures all things by his words, but words have no fixed meanings. Language is not an instrument for finding truth, but for changing it. Those who can master it, master all. It is a good creed for rogues, and commends itself to tyrants in every age." (What We Can't Not Know, Budziszewski, p. 167)

Sophistry is the evil religion not just of the depraved Ruling Class but of millions of Liberals.  Sophistry says uncreated autonomous man, an emergent product of evolution acting on chemicals, is a free-thinker, thus the maker of his own truth and morality even though life and mind cannot evolve from something on the order of rocks and sophistry denies the reality of both truth and morality.   Sophistry says depraved man can unmake and then remake himself despite that by the logic of his position he is a walking dead body that somehow speaks.  Nevertheless, the self-deluded sophist is free to divinize himself as in days of old. Moreover, males can be females and females can be males, or they can be androgynous, that is, transgender.

 Sophistry's' favorite Scripture is "judge not."  According to sophistry, the only allowable judgment is the judgment against moral judgment while the only sin is the idea that sin exists unless it is committed by "right-wing extremists."    Sophistry's only truth is the idea that truth does not exist and evil is the idea that evil really exists unless ascribed to "right-wing extremists."  The greatest evil of all however, is to dissent against the Ruling Class or hurt the feelings of Liberals.

Sophists are evil braggarts who love to boast of their reason, yet reason is actually escape from reason into irrationalism. By way of unreason, self-righteous sophists claim that God is dead and evolutionary theory is absolutely true, but sophistry says that words have no fixed meaning. There is no truth in sophistry. Therefore, God is not dead but rather evolutionary theory is a lie and sophists are walking dead bodies that spout lies and meaningless gibberish.

The sins of the evil Ruling Class and its mindless fan-club know no bounds, and through psychological abuse, lies, and scapegoating, theyvictimize all decent, law-abiding Americans, causing them to be fearful of speaking truth to lies and exercising moral judgment lest they be ridiculed and accused of phony sins such as homophobia. As a result, the Light of Truth has been all but overcome by darkness. In spiritually dark America, psychologically abused Americans wade through dank mire like moles, always seeking but never finding, for they can no longer see the Light of Truth.

An ancient malign will energizes the Ruling Class and its' liberal followers and through them great suffering and evil has been done to Americans and America. The evil have compassed us about with lies, confusion, and treachery. They have rewarded our good with evil. They have sacrificed our well-being to enact their narcissistic fantasies. In short, the evil have created a sick, twisted society that mirrors their own sick, twisted selves. And because they cannot stand the sight of their distorted mirror image (American society) they are inviting terrorists in to kill, steal and destroy and giving the left-overs away, bit by bit, to the U.N.  In short, this is Liberal and Progressive Illogic 101.

Political Correctness: Public Advocacy of Vice

Robert Reilly, chairman of the Committee for Western Civilization, observes that for any individual, moral failure is hard to live with because of the rebuke of conscience. Habitual moral failure, what used to be called vice or sin, can be lived with only by obliterating conscience through rationalization.  The door of the conscience is systematically forced open wider and wider by rationalization until the point is reached where we proudly tolerate every manner of abomination, thereby allowing  evils to occur constantly and for whatever reason:

Your conscience is the part of you which embraces what is good and which rejects evil. It is like the doorkeeper of a house which is open to friends and closed to enemies.” (Hilary of Arles, Ancient Christian Devotional, p. 127)    

Rationalization is a defense mechanism, a form of self-deception that compromises and befouls conscience so as to make tolerable and acceptable thoughts, motives, feelings, and behaviors that would otherwise be unacceptable, thus when we rationalize, we convince ourselves that heretofore forbidden idolatry, lies, murder, theft, gross sexual fantasies, fantasies of sadistic infliction of pain and other perverse desires and actions are permissible:

" We advance the reality of the desires over the reality of the moral order to which the desires should be subordinated. In our minds we replace the reality of moral order with something more congenial to the activity we are excusing. In short, we assert that bad is good."  (Culture of Vice, Robert Reilly, Orthodoxy Today)

Rationalization of evil, or political correctness as it is called, is the wisdom of fallen man that is earthly,

".... natural, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy ." James 3:15-17

When a person habitually deceives himself and others, his conscience becomes seared, thereby allowing his harmful or destructive thoughts and behaviors to become justified in his mind. In this way he becomes a self-convinced, zealously indefatigable public advocate of his own moral failures, ill will, and myriad vices.   Three examples of this are progressive advocacy of sodomy as 'love' deserving rights even within the church, transgenderism with its' advocacy of fluid gender, and the unflagging advocacy of so-called global climate change: 

Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.” – Barack Obama,US President
 
We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”- Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

Over and across America, the unrelenting and determined power of rationalization of evil drives secular progressivism's aggressive war against the Biblically grounded foundations of our nearly dead Constitutional Republic, gives it its demonically revolutionary character and makes its hostile advocates relentless in their pursuit of and advocacy for evil:

"...in such places, evil is commended, praised, and well-thought-of.  Those who do it are applauded..."  (Journey to Hell, John Bunyan, p. 80)

Rationalization in the guise of progressive politics, evolution as a scientific fact, global change, environmental justice, racial justice, gender justice and economic justice may draw its energy from desperation, furious bitterness, jealousy, covetousness and envy but is all the more powerful and tireless for that. 

Since failed rationalization means self-recrimination, it must be avoided no matter the cost--to babies, children, adults, whole cultures and civilizations.  For this reason, the myriad vices being forced upon our culture such as "gay" marriage, "choice" (the right to kill the unborn), and other big lies such as evolutionary biology, the idea of 'gene pools' and evil genes (causes of racism, bigotry, homophobia and other evils), and global change as factual science are not subject to reasoned discourse because 'all vile persons' love their vices:

"They love their vices, but they do not care to bear their names.  The drunkard loves the sin, but does not love to be called a drunkard.  The thief loves to steal, but he cannot stand to be called a thief; the whore loves to commit immorality, but does not love to be called a whore.  And so Mr. Badman loved to be proud, but could not tolerate being called a proud man.  The fragrance of sin is desirable, but it pollutes and corrupts a man.  To name a man's sin is to put a blot on his honor."   (ibid, p.159)

Advocates of vice are not interested in finding 'objective truth but in maintaining the deceptions that allow them to continue their lies, behaviors and destructive agendas.  For them to succeed in this, everyone must submit to their rationalizations or be destroyed by way of demonization; accusations of hatred, bigotry and insanity; public shaming, shunning and scape-goating.  This is why revolutionary change is required:

" The necessity for self-justification requires the complicity of the whole culture. Holdouts cannot be tolerated because they are potential rebukes. The self-hatred, anger, and guilt that a person possessed of a functioning conscience would normally feel from doing wrong are redirected by the rationalization and projected upon society as a whole (if the society is healthy), or upon those in society who do not accept the rationalization. "  (Reilly)

And so it must be. If you are going to center your public life on lies, sodomy,  beheading aborted babies and selling their body parts or in seizing control of all wealth and resources in order to refuse them to hated "others" you  had better transform your failures and evil intentions into highly virtuous intentions and moral acts. 

America is collapsing because though a society can withstand any number of persons who try to advance their own moral disorders as public policy,

" ... it cannot survive once it adopts the justification for those moral disorders as its own. This is what is at stake in the culture war. " (Robert Reilly, chairman of the Committee for Western Civilization)

The Viciousness in Back of Politically Correct Deceptions

In "Scott Walker’s insidious agnosticism," Dana Milbank  fires back at Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor and Republican presidential hopeful, who when asked by The Post’s Dan Balz and Robert Costa on Saturday whether President Obama is a Christian said, "I don't know." (The Washington Post, Milbank, Feb. 23, 2013)

According to Millbank, the correct answer is yes: Obama is Christian, and he frequently speaks about it in public. Balz and Costa presented Walker with this information to give him a second chance to answer but he declined.

This is insidious, fumed Milbank, and goes beyond last week’s questioning of Obama’s patriotism, because it allows Walker to wink and nod,

" ...at the far-right fringe where people really believe that Obama is a Muslim from Kenya who hates America. The governor is flirting with a significant segment of the Republican primary electorate: those who have peddled the notion (accepted by 17 percent of Americans at the end of Obama’s first term) that Obama is a Muslim."

Is Obama a Christian and just what or who is the "far-right fringe"?     For two decades Obama attended Rev. Jeremiah "God Damn America!" Wright's temple of hate and iniquity.  Does this make Obama a "Christian"?   Only if the evil one, the father of hate and lies is a "Christian."    Moreover, in his recent defense of the ISIS butchers who beheaded Christians, crucified them and cut their children in half Obama made his monstrous contempt for faithful Christians as obvious as Milbank's hatred of "far-right fringe" Americans.  So who are the terroristic "far-right fringe," the "enemies of the State"?   According to Obama, all Americans who love Jesus Christ, hold tight to their bibles and their guns.    Good, decent, God-fearing, hard-working Americans in other words.  Pamela Geller comments:

"Obama’s war on “countering violent extremism” turns inward – on Americans. CNN reported Thursday that “a new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists and comes as the Obama administration holds a White House conference to focus efforts to fight violent extremism.”   

"The DHS report unveils the Obama doctrine – ignoring the jihad and targeting the right – in a deliberate demonization of an increasing number of Americans who understand that our rights are being usurped and that the U.S. government has been hijacked by a collective of destroyers and anti-American operatives. This is not new. Obama made these same vicious accusations in a similar DHS report in early 2009. It is a strategy."

“Some federal and local law enforcement groups,” CNN says, “view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to – and in some cases greater than – the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.”  (Obama Stormtroopers Ignore Jihad, Target Right, Geller, barbwire.com, 24 February, 2015)

What do Obama and his diabolical storm troopers, Karl Marx, Darwin, Lenin, Freud, Nietzsche, Sartre, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Sanger, Herbert Marcuse, Dewey, "death of God theologians," and Jeremiah Wright have in common?   Burning hatred of virtue, goodness, decency, righteousness, life and  above all, of the God of Revelation. 

 The living God of Revelation said Peter Hitchens,  

 “….. is the leftists’ chief rival..."  Christian belief, by subjecting all men to divine authority and by asserting in the words ‘My kingdom is not of this world,’ that the ideal society does not exist in this life, is the most coherent and potent obstacle to secular utopianism.” (The Rage Against God, Hitchens, p.134)

 And what is diabolical purpose of "politically correct" sophistry, whether that of Obama, Wright, Milbank , Richard Dawkins or any of the vast legion of malicious sophists who dominate and pollute our minds and society with their damnable lies?   It is not to testify to the truth but to dominate, cause confusion, fear, humiliation and a false sense of guilt, thus the less their lies correspond to reality the better. When the victims of liars are held up to shame by the liars themselves and forced to remain silent and even better—accept a burden of false guilt— they not only lose their courage and sense of integrity but in accepting the guilt open themselves to further demonization and terroristic crucifixion.  Moreover, to remain silent in the face of obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, thereby compromising and polluting our own conscience.  As the black heart of haters is the worship of lies in pursuit of power at any price, the more compromised and polluted our conscience the easier it becomes for the evil to dominate, control and manipulate us.
