Communists Descend on Ferguson
American Thinker, by Paul Kengor

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 8/22/2014 7:14:46 AM

I’ve stayed out of the Ferguson controversy. I don’t know enough to know who, exactly, is to blame in Ferguson. (Snip) That said, here is something I do know, and that I think would benefit readers as they assess the growing animosities in Missouri: I’ve long studied the antics of the American Communist Party, from literally the very beginning. I’ve sat in archives and stared at the first documents that American communists excitedly sent from their offices at 1219 Blue Island Avenue in Chicago to Soviet Comintern headquarters in Moscow. I’ve spent hundreds of hours reading old copies of the Soviet-funded

I can´t get how good this article is into the intro. Kengor knows Communism backwards and forwards -- he is a scholar who wrote a book on Frank Marshall Davis -- and he relates how they have always targeted black Americans to advance their cause, and that´s what they´re in Ferguson for now. Also, he points out that their small numbers has nothing to do with havoc they can wreak.

Chaos is their stock-in-trade.
Oh yeah, that and never let a good crisis go to waste!
Sound familiar?

Communists Descend on Ferguson...we´re talking about Holder and his elite kommie komando squad of lawyers, right? Social justice, economic justice, etc., equals communist injustice through redistribution of others´ hard-earned labor. The biggest looters now in Ferguson are from the Justice Dept.

This brings to mind Obamas communist friend and advisor Van Jones who was on the WH staff until the press revealed his affiliation.After he was bounced he got a gig teaching at Princeton.I have a hunch ValJar is affiliated as is Obamas former chief of staff and current mayor of Chicago.The name escapes me.Having a senior moment.

I believe most of the rage in Ferguson is because of the terrible economy and the significant drop in black familiy income under this President.

They are angry and do not know what to do with their anger. Brown is an excuse to lash out. Communists can certainly play upon that frustration.

Obama’s soul-mated community organizers, the communists, rush to Ferguson to add to the festivities. One of the Popes once called the doctrine of black liberation theology that Obama’s church adhered to for over twenty years, communism dressed up in clerical clothing.

I think Professor Kengor is on to something here. In the words of the late Nikita Khrushchev---"We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find out they have Communism."

I have been constantly posting on this forum about the relentlessness of the commies - - so much so that some of you may have considered me to be a bit paranoid.

But - - like Paul Kengor - - and as Rush Limbaugh would say - - I know these people with every fiber of my body.

Stinky and his ilk are hardcore commies - - who insulate and hide themselves with a padding of useful idiots like Biden, Hagel, and chosen military toadies.

The Soviet Union imploded - - and the Berlin Wall was knocked down - - but the commies never went away. They are still among us - - and they are still pure evil - - and still relentlessly working to destroy us.

Maybe some day the Pubbie "opposition" will come to understand this - - but that will probably be the day before hell freezes over.

Eric Holder and his entourage of commies have decended on Ferguson for a reason, keep up the chaos. The blacks are useful idiots and none of them care or most even know Brown. It´s all about riots and looting.
Sorry to a poster above a great economy and all the programs in the nation won´t bail the blacks out of despair. They want what they have, rap music, drugs, sex and guns to kill people with. Breaking down the capitalist way is what the communist strive for.

Good article.

They are skilled propagandists. They conceive and coordinate tightly, smartly orchestrated campaigns that work wondrously in duping liberals. They’re really good at raising lots of hell without a lot of members.

Knowing what we already know about labor agitators, it was clear from the overdone chaos in Ferguson that outsiders were roiling the racial pot. Had the cameras gone away, the agitators would have, too.

As Kengor states, even liberals are duped by Communists who secret themselves quietly away waiting for the next chance to recruit members.

"Journalists" and reporters, not usually the sharpest knives in the drawer, are perfect flints to ignite greater unrest and give Communists a leg up.

People easily led, which Kengor vigorously denies he thinks the blacks in Ferguson are, will relish the idea of something to charge up the dullness of their dependent lifestyles, especially when cameras are around to give them what they view as fame in the You Tube age.

McCarthy was right. Communists are here, always have been here, but have pretty much remained coiled in the corner. Now, though, they are striking while the race-baiting is hot, swearing on their souls that white-against-black racism is a frequent occurrence in Ferguson and elsewhere.

We have domestic enemies that in my opinion far outnumber our foreign enemies. It was never like this until the last decade and it gets worse with each day the camera gives a line of cocaine to the Communist movement in America.

Commies used to hide in the shadows. For the last 5 or 6 years they are in our faces every day, not trying to hide any of their plans to destroy America. For some reason, half of the country is either with them or they just don´t understand what a nasty group the Communists are. Just because they don´t come out and call themselves commies ,doesn´t mean they aren´t.

I really think that this 24/7 media coverage is causing much of the violence, and luring outside groups to get involved. The fact that the media is so fixated on this one incident in one small town in light of all the other international news, is irresponsible.

After seeing an American beheaded by a group that would love to get access to all of our heads, I would think that would be a priority. Especially in light of the lack of a southern border and the reports of the capture of men from the Middle East coming in from Mexico.

JFK was extremely troubled about Communist infiltration in this country. Without saying the word Communist, he spoke this terrible problem to a meeting of journalists. It´s clear reading the speech he knew the journalists were key enablers. While respecting their jobs, he was practically begging them not to give in to them. He said forces are entwined in every facet of US life with the goal of destroying American culture. No one talks about this today. If it is mentioned it´s dismissed as JFK being paranoid. JFK was clearly a democrat, but it´s hard to believe the left would´ve taken over this country as swiftly and violently as they did in the late 60´s--and be running the country today--if we´d had JFK instead of LBJ.

The commies have a long history of fueling the grievance industry. They think they can use the grievance industry to disrupt and weaken their enemies. When an enemy cannot defeat their enemy militarily, they look to take their enemy down from the inside. Also, if their is a cultural component to a conflict, one opponent has to assimilate the other. This is also done internally.

Government bureaucracy federal, state, local, are all full of Marxist communists. The democrat party turned to Marxist communist starting in 1964 and fully committed in 1968. The republican party leadership has joined them in committing to Marxist communism as has the republican electorate who keep voting non conservatives into office.

The whole agenda is UN agenda 21 with communism ruling the entire world with an iron hand eliminating all those who resist.

Do you actually believe the federal government has 200 million body bags and billions of round of hollow point ammunition on hand just to look at in case of an attack by foreign armies on American soil?

During the Trayvon Martin ordeal, the Obama Administration and the Holder "Just-Us" Department sent "community organizers" to Florida to incite riots and organize protests.

How many of these Communist "community organizers" were sent by Obama and Holder, using American taxpayer dollars?

Who has the time and money to travel from Chicago, New York, Oakland, etc., to travel to different states and encourage people to throw Molotov cocktails at the police?

If Obama and Holder have sent some of these people through back channels, shouldn´t we know about it?

Yes, the communists are master manipulators and propagandists. They have been putting together a concerted effort for a long time to destroy America as she was founded. But we have to be careful when we throw labels around. That is one tactic the communists used to mislead the public into not questioning what is happening in our country. A poster asked why nobody seems to notice...I say because they brainwashed the masses beginning with their usurping the word "liberal" and falsely applying it to themselves. We know that leftists are NOT liberal. In fact, it is today´s conservatives who are true liberals. Additionally, the word "Progressive" is misleading. Most Democrat followers (not the politicians in power) and others who identify with the so-called "liberals" and "Progressives" do not really know or understand the true ideology behind leftism and progressivism. They THINK they know but they really don´t. That is the key here. If people knew the truth about the agenda and the true nature of the ideologies and goals of the left, they would most likely NOT support them. But how do you teach people who THINK they know something the honest truth about it? One has to break down a person´s belief system. That is difficult after 100 years of impression management, revisionist history and false propaganda infiltrating all aspects of our lives to shape public opinion, not to mention the last 50 years spent manipulating the majority of the black community. BUT, it is not impossible to change this. We can do it if we all work to educate the public...even if just one person at a time.

Here are a few Communist gripes about America...

Q: What´s wrong with capitalism?

A: It puts profits before people.

The heart of capitalism is the drive for more and more profits for banks and corporations no matter what happens to our nation´s people and environment. The results of this built-in greed are horrible:

20 million people out of work, including 25% of our young adults.
Exporting jobs to wherever workers get paid the least. Wiping out American industry.
Draining the public treasury with tax breaks and bailouts for the super-rich and giant corporations.
People´s needs go down the toilet. Public schools, health services, parks, libraries, and transit systems are cut back or closed.
Poisoning our drinking water, air, food supply and oceans.
Cutting workers´ pay and benefits, stealing pensions.
Corruption of Congress and our democratic institutions by corporate dollars and lobbyists.
Denying workers the right to join unions.
Record levels of inequality.
Greed for profits is the impetus for war - for oil, for domination of other countries´ markets and profits of military contractors.

Obama and Holder are onboard for a least 90% of it so if it quacks like a duck...

The Left´s Religion of Unhappiness

There is no one that the left hates more than a man who does not hate, who goes through the day without outrage and who does not spend his life stewing with vindictive resentments. Leftists call it “privilege” now. They have called it apathy, escapism and a hundred other things. They will find a thousand other names for it as they march through the future centuries grinding their teeth. Privilege is the accusation that the very lack of resentment and grievance, neurotic responses to simple phrases and a cloud of free-floating anger, represents an ignorant oppression.

In light of the first diagnosis of Ebola in the U.S. earlier this week, concerns over whether the disease will spread— and by what means— still linger. The family of the Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan has been quarantined in the Dallas apartment he was visiting before being admitted to an area hospital. Fifty people who came in contact with Duncan since his arrival in the U.S. on Sept. 20 are being monitored, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed Friday. The CDC said in a release Friday that it has recorded 10 "possible" Ebola cases nationwide. Of those, 17 have resulted in blood tests.

Barack Obama had a choice between liberalism and the Democratic Party. He chose the latter and it cost him dearly. Liberalism, as an ideology, insists that government can do good and great things for the people and the world, if the people running the government are smart liberals. The Democratic Party says the exact same thing. But liberalism is an ideal, while the Democratic Party is that ideal´s representative here in the real world, and in the real world political parties disappoint. (Snip) But this was supposed to be liberalism´s moment. This was supposed to be a new Progressive Era. Obama

We know that conservatives are happier people than liberals, but did you know the latest social science says we’re neater people and smell better, too? From the wonderful annals of social science: A 2006 report from the Pew Research Center showed that 45% of conservative Republicans reported being very happy, as compared to 30% of liberal Democrats. According to the report, this “partisan happiness gap” had shown up in surveys every year since 1972. What explains the happiness gap? Some scientists have argued that it can be attributed to personality differences between the two groups or different thinking styles–that conservatives

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Hard-charging radio commentator Mark Levin is sick of waiting for the Republican Party to nominate a conservative for president, and today he outlined his plan to accomplish just that. Speaking at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, the talk radio giant and bestselling author issued a call to action to the crowd of social conservatives, prescribing a grassroots movement to elect a conservative to the White House in 2016. Levin lamented that Americans under age 50 haven’t yet had the chance to vote for a true conservative such as Ronald Reagan for president and called on conference attendees to spend the next

The Middle East is like a vast dysfunctional family. Western leftists like to place all the blame on Israel, but for 1,300 years before modern Israel declared its independence, Muslims were routinely killing each other, following the rule: Me against my brother, my brothers and me against our cousins, my clan against the world. One of the weirdest moves in this dysfunctional culture is for Arabs and Turks to accuse each other of being secret Jews. (Snip) But! Today, science comes to the rescue, in the form of DNA analysis.

From the window of his Paris home, Michel Ciardi can see into the waiting room of a government welfare agency where a predominantly Arab and African crowd awaits government checks. A former communist, Ciardi once believed the scene at the agency was a necessary element of French efforts to help integrate new immigrants. But that changed in 2000 after the second Palestinian intifada triggered a massive increase in anti-Semitic violence, much of it committed by Arab and African immigrants. The violence was enough to shift his political allegiance to the National Front, a far-right party long demonized by

Watching the parade of the naïve, the far left, and their energy-hogging celebrity manipulators marching in New York City this week, I was struck by how much these true believers had in common with jihadis, a notion reinforced by Perdue Professor Louis Rene Beres’ description of jihadis in Gatestone Institute and my friend “Ignatz´s’" comment at Just One Minute. Both movements seem to these authors to be a means of denying death and change and making the mortal, immortal and the insignificant individual life, a significant force when massed with others.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom.

The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
