Progressive socialists control America and the West, and Obama is one of them. In "Obama Reaches Out to Muslim Brotherhood," Robert Spencer writes: "The Obama administration is set to begin formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, a group dedicated in its own words to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house." http://frontpagemag.com/2011/07/04/obama-reaches-out-to-the-muslim-brotherhood/
Contemporary Progressives: Spawn of Bolsheviks
From the first day of their coming into power, the Bolsheviks began to kill. Wholesale murders were organized at the instigation of the Bolsheviks who were putting into action Karl Marx's condemnation of Western society: ""The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed."
(Progressive Satanic Revolt: From Nothingness to Worship of Satan, http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/kimball/110503)
Since God is the keynote of a perverted civilization, and pre-Communist Russia was Orthodox Christian, it was by definition perverted and worthy of destruction. Thus everywhere Bolsheviks looked they saw nothing but evil. The antidote to evil was threefold:
1.totally destroy the existing civilization, right down to its' foundations 2. arrest, re-educate and/or kill any and all dissenters 3. install atheism and socialism
"Lying, cheating, mystification, and--of necessity----violence should be employed against the enemy..." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 745)
"...the sure way to guarantee oneself absolute power in an atheist society was not to threaten people with some mythological inferno, but to institute a real hell---a concentration camp to punish insurgents and to frighten all others, with a special police force made up of beings devoid of conscience and entirely devoted to the government in power---obedient machines, unencumbered by moral scruples and prepared for every sort of cruelty." (Ernest Renan, Black Book of Communism, p. 755)
Socialism is utopianism, "a doctrine totally out of step with reality." (ibid, 737) Thus the only way for Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin and the Bolsheviks to put their ideas into practice and build socialism was through force, terror, and murder. Here in America however, Progressives followed the advice of Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci, the Frankfurt School and the Fabians. They became human moles, and like moles they tunneled into, infiltrated, subverted, and in the words of the Muslim Brotherhood, destroyed Western civilization from within by "sabotaging its miserable house."
For those who are interested in learning the sordid details of how America was destroyed from within, Ralph de Toledano documents in chilling detail how intellectuals, educrats, and politicians, manipulated by a well-financed worldwide conspiracy accomplished the take-down of Christian-based America in his book, "Cry Havoc! The Great American Bring-Down and How It Happened."
The take-down was a success, and for all intents and purposes, contemporary America is both atheist and socialist. In that everywhere atheist socialism takes control, God is shoved out and replaced by the religion of atheist socialism--- evolutionary scientism, man as god, and amorality---this is the case with contemporary "post-Christian" America. If the founding generation were to suddenly appear, they would not recognize the civilization they sacrificed for and even died to found.
Today's Progressive socialists, by whatever label they apply to themselves...liberals, New Age insiders, transhumanists, etc.---do not possess the fanatic zeal and murderous rage of the Bolsheviks. Believing in nothing higher than "self" and whatever "self" wants at any moment, their "fighting spirit" can be likened to that of whiny brats, nasty-tempered Peter Pans, and tempermental Red Queens. They are no match for the Muslim Brotherhood.
While contemporary atheist socialists chant, "give peace a chance" and dream of the "omnigendered" utopia predicted by ex-Evangelical lesbian Virginia Mollenkott who said, â€œWhen all the variations of human gender and sexuality become acceptable...then everyone will be 'normal' and 'normalcy' will lose its coercive power," the Muslim Brotherhood looks upon the American "utopia" and sees evil everywhere they look.
Pride (narcissism) goes before a fall precisely because it blinds one to reality. To be self-centered is to be focused on self rather than outward focused on the real world. Contemporary progressive socialists are blinded by their own pride. Thus it is only within their over-heated imaginations that tolerance between themselves and the Muslim Brotherhood can exist. Eagerly reaching for the carrot of pseudo-peace, Progressive fools put out the welcome mat for jihadists who repaid them by blowing up the Twin Towers and over a thousand Americans. Obviously Progressives have learned nothing, for now Obama is reaching out to the Muslim Brotherhood despite their clearly stated intention to eliminate and destroy "Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house."
Informed by Marxism and other socialist ideology, Progressives wholeheartedly believe that the Muslim Brotherhood hates America and the West due to the remnants of its' Christian-based heritage such as private property and free markets. This is not the case however. The Muslim Brotherhood hates America because it is the standard-bearer of everything that the Muslim world fears: godlessness, scientism, amorality, hedonism, and pornography. The antidote to this evil is the same as that applied by the Bolsheviks: total destruction of everything that exists, in the words of Karl Marx.
The Muslim Brotherhood are religious fanatics and totalitarians cut from the same cloth as Marx, Lenin and the Bolsheviks. The utopia they intend to build is as out of step with reality as socialism, which means that they lie, cheat, steal, and employ terror, threats, blackmail, and other forms of intimidation against the "enemy" while they work to totally destroy the post-Christian West. And when they have seized control they will ensure themselves absolute power by instituting a real hell guarded by conscienceless "Sharia" police. Among the first Westerners to be rounded up and exterminated will be the ones held in greatest contempt....progressive preachers of "tolerance."
