“If I were the Devil”
Some of you do not know Paul Harvey. But these were his words Circa 1965.
Is Paul Harvey’s “Devil” Progressivism/Communism that has infiltrated America and is usurping our Constitution?

The 45 Steps to Communism
For those unacquainted with Communism’s 45 Steps, I strongly advise that you study them. Many have already been accomplished. America has just elected a president who has more in common with communism than he does with America. If you love this country, fight to make sure Obama and his bots do not fulfill these steps. It is a fight too many of us are too late engaging in, but it ain’t over yet.

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
A brief summary of Leftist amorality and indifference to suffering
Ralph Peters puts it well (Excerpt):
“The silence of the Left in the face of uncomfortable truths is a hallowed tradition, of course, dating back to the earliest crimes of the Soviet Union. When the reality confronting the Left contradicts the theory, the theory must be preserved at any cost.
And there’s no sign of improvement, not a glimmer of the least scrap of conscience or integrity on the Left. It’s all about revenge against a democratic system that gives a blue-collar worker a vote equal to that of a university professor’s ballot, about hatred for the free market for providing better lives for the great majority while Marxism drowned in the bile of its victims. There’s no one the new American Left so despises as the working man or woman who continues to believe in the United States.
And it’s about power. Had Bill Clinton invaded Iraq and deposed Saddam, the Left would have cheered their throats raw, praising him as one of history’s greatest liberators. The rhetoric about Iraq isn’t about justice, or the Iraqi people, or even about the horrors of war ….. The great, unforgivable insult to the Left is that conservatives took the idea of liberation seriously and acted, while the Liberal-Arts faculty merely chattered about it…
The global Left never cared about the Iraqi people until they became American “victims.” As Saddam Hussein slaughtered more Muslims through campaigns of oppression and wars of aggression than any tyrant since Tamerlane, the Left remained silent. But now that Saddam himself might face the death penalty, Leftists everywhere are wringing their hands at the thought of such injustice.
Where were they when the screams of torture victims pierced the prison walls under Saddam? Where were the celebrity journalists when Iraq’s mass graves were being opened over the past fifteen months? Where are the reports of the fierce joy of the Kurds, free at last, free at last?
Now, in late July of 2004, where is the Left as the Sudanese government conducts a campaign of genocide against the wretched of the earth in Darfur Province? Oh, yes, there have been a few crocodile tears – but where are the demands for intervention?
Where are the campus demonstrations against that great liberator, Robert Mugabe, who destroyed Zimbabwe, terrorized its people – and is using scarce reserves of food as a weapon while his citizens slowly starve?
Where is the American Left’s sense of justice in the face of European anti-semitism? Of course, the spreading hate-crimes against Jews, synagogues and cemeteries are all Israel’s fault.that’s been explained to us.
Then where are the protests against the corruption and repression used as tools of control by the Palestinian Authority? The self-respecting Leftist whispers, “It’s their culture.” As are suicide bombers, no doubt. Why doesn’t the Left complain about the hate speech spewed in mosques and madrassahs around the world? Are calls to exterminate Jews and butcher Christians just “part of their culture,” too?
When will we see mass demonstrations demanding rights for women in the Islamic world? Are women’s rights only for middle-class whites with college degrees? Where is the Left’s passionate sense of humanity when Islamic extremists behead the innocent – and videotape the event, to the glee of the Muslim world? Of course, those decapitations are really America’s fault … we’ve driven them to it, you see.
The truth is that our Left is so intellectually decrepit, so infected by dishonesty, so morally feeble that it has only breath enough to condemn American actions. No matter how many brown or black human beings suffer around the world -starved, ethnically cleansed, raped, tortured, murdered – it doesn’t count unless you can blame America.
This is a moral crime for which we all pay. By obsessing about Iraq – where the United States and its allies performed a great and noble deed, however imperfect the day-to-day details – the Left has tacitly agreed to let the rest of the world rot. And it is, indeed, rotting. Intervention to stymie tyrants couldn’t be right in Bosnia or Kosovo when Democrats owned the White House, but automatically wrong with Republican sponsors.
This isn’t just hypocrisy on the part of the Left. It’s complicity. With tyrants and thugs everywhere. The blood of al Qaeda’s victims is on the hands of terror’s apologists, whether in Cairo or in Cambridge.
Psychopathic Leftist reliance on lies and dishonesty
Another absolutely characteristic feature of psychopaths is their readiness to lie and lie shamelessly. And to this day I have never quite managed to get used to the way many Leftists seem to be completely uninterested in the truth. And this is another way in which the Leftists of today differ not at all from the Leftists of the Cold War era.
Stalin’s old Soviet production statistics are of course the classic example of Leftist lies but chronic misrepresentation was also confirmed by the revelations made possible in Russia by former President Gorbachev’s policy of “Glasnost”. From what has been revealed, there can surely now be no doubt that for most of last century the Soviet system literally floated on a sea of lies. This was so extreme that even the maps produced by official Soviet cartographers were fraudulent. Even an accurate Moscow street map was unavailable! And note that the great cartographical capacity that U.S. spy satellites have had for many years renders any explanation of this in terms of defence considerations quite laughable.And note that this attachment to lies is not confined to the Soviet bloc and China. I myself remember well the pre-Khrushchev times when most Western Leftists dismissed accounts of Stalin’s mass murders as “inventions of the capitalist press”. There are none so blind as those who will not see.
Quote from BrookesNews. So nothing has changed among the Left.They are dishonest as ever but what they support shows well enough what sort of people they are.
A more subtle form of dishonesty is the great absurdity of the policies that Leftists have often advocated. Policies such as rent-control and nationalization of industry have a superficial attraction that guaranteed that they would be widely tried but who could honestly advocate them once it is apparent how badly they work? Certainly not a person who had the welfare of the people at heart. Such policies have only ever delivered poverty and housing shortages. Why have Leftists advocated such nostrums for so long?
If their motives were benevolent, it would make no sense to advocate so much misery. If their real motives were, on the other hand, a need for power and a desire to concentrate in the hands of their clique extensive power over the lives of others it makes very great sense indeed.
And the famous Leftist call for abolition of wealth and income differentials would surely lead one to expect that Leftists would reject materalistic ambition in their own lives. But it is not so. Although Leftists seem to decry the scramble for private material possessions (conservatism is smeared as “the politics of greed”), they themselves on the personal level seem to be just as keen for the scramble as anyone else. There has been a lot of research reported in the literature of academic psychology on the subject of achievement motivation but the various measures of materialistic achievement motivation have been shown to have negligible correlation with Leftism — where a high negative correlation might on theory have been expected (Ray, 1981b; Ray & Najman, 1988). In other words, in their own lives Leftists are just about as apt as Rightists to seek personal material gain. Once again the Leftist emerges as being hypocritical and as not honest about his/her real motives and values.
And we do not really need psychological research to see what the motivations of Leftists are actually like in their daily lives. Johnson (1988), himself a former prominent Leftist, explored at length the actual lives of various prominent Leftist intellectuals — including Karl Marx himself. He found that while such intellectuals claimed to love humanity, their actual deeds in their own lives and their detailed exhortations to their followers suggested a loathing of and contempt for their fellow man. For them it was no joke that “I love humanity. It is just people I can’t stand”. Dishonesty of various kinds just seems to be inherent in Leftism.
Leftists as practitioners of the “big lie”
Nazi propaganda minister Dr. Joseph Goebbels is famous for his saying that if you tell a big enough lie often enough people will believe it. He has able successors in the Leftists of today.
The CounterRevolutionary has argued (with obvious truth) that what influence Leftists have stems from their being better at propaganda rather than from their capacity to deliver desirable results. He argues therefore that conservatives should do more to press their arguments rather than just respond to Leftist claims: “We must insist that people and ideologies are judged by the results of their actions, not on the lofty ideals they claim to uphold. Without the reliance on the facade of humanity socialism, and it’s modern derivatives anti-Americanism and anti-globalism, are reduced to hate ideologies no different from fascism or Islamism.”
He is undoubtedly right but I think that conservatives will never be as good at propaganda because they do not have that Leftist carelessness about the truth.
The greatest triumph of the Leftist “big lie” technique in recent times would have to be the way they have persuaded almost everyone that Hitler was a Rightist when he was in fact one of them — an extreme socialist. He was to the Right of Stalin but that is about all. See here.
But there are many smaller examples of successful Leftist deception and the “stolen generation” story in Australia is one of them. It has in fact been one of the triumphs of the Australian Left to convict white Australians of the “crime” concerned — the alleged forcible removal of 100,000 black children from their families so they could be brought up by white foster-parents instead. There has even been a film made about the subject – Rabbit-proof fence – which claims to be a documentary. The whole story is however just another Leftist lie — as Andrew Bolt sets out at length here. The slender basis of fact that the story relies on is that some 1930s official do-gooders — predecessors of the modern LEFT — did place a few mixed-race children in white foster homes to give them a better chance in life — but the placement was always made with written parental consent. There was NO forced removal. Nobody and nothing was “stolen”. And that’s not just Andrew Bolt’s opinion. It is the finding of a year-long $10 million Australian court case about the claim. Officialdom acted only when the parents either did not want the children or felt that they could not care for them adequately.
So the truth is that it was white do-gooders and social workers just like the Leftists of today who ran the programme concerned. The children concerned were all half-castes (of partly white ancestry) and the wiseheads of the day felt that “for their own good” such children would have “a better chance” if they were brought up in white families rather than other black families. Like the Leftists of today, the “welfare” workers of that time felt that they knew what was best for other people. But to this day most Australians believe it was all just racism — with no awareness of the do-gooder motivation behind it.
And in the USA, the most successful big lie would appear to be the constant claim from Democratic party propaganda that they are the anti-racists and Republicans are the racists. I guess Abraham Lincoln must have been a Democrat? And the “Jim Crow” laws of the old South must have been put in place by Republicans? No need to guess, is there?
And which party voted in higher percentages for the 1964 civil rights act? The actual percentages of “yes” votes were: Republicans 80% in the House and 82% in the Senate versus Democrats 63% in the House and 69% in the Senate. In fact, in the 26 major civil rights votes after 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80 percent of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 percent of the votes. So how do the Leftist liars get away with it? I guess hardly anybody knows their history so that gives the liars free rein.
There is a great quiz about all those good old anti-racist Democrats here. It comes ultimately from a column by Thomas Oliver.
3). When the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led the civil rights efforts in the South, the governing powers that opposed him were of which party?
Also, this article gives a much more detailed history of whether Democrats or Republicans have been more racist.
Has America become a Godless society through the ideology of Progressives, Atheists and the ACLU?
America’s moral decline:
We, as a nation have been on a slippery slope of moral decline. We have now become an amoral society. What was once a society of religion, helping those in need of physical assistance and neighborly “love” has now become a society of “self interest”. As I call it the “me” generation.
My personal insights to moral decline:
1. Prior to the President Carter years, films and entertainment were “censored”; no nudity, cussing or “pelvic thrusting”. Then along came Elvis Presley. He dared the entertainment industry with his “expositions” and once society thought about it and literally women were swooning over him, the entertainment industry’s “censorship” went to the wayside. Remember silence is acceptance. Yesterday, I witnessed a trailer to a children’s cartoon movie. In it was a character that’s pants dropped down and exposed his underwear; this movie is rated “G”. What is that teaching 3-4 yr olds? That it is acceptable to drop your pants to your ankles and expose your underwear? A Nickelodeon actor tweeted very vulgar comments about Ann Romney; silence from Nickelodeon. The actor is still working there and the vulgar tweets have been deleted by the Actor; again silence is acceptance America.
2. Prior to 1968, I had to take a course in High School called: “Americanism vs. Communism”; we studied different Communist leaders, their actions against their people and that America was GOOD. Today most curriculum is to the “Left”, colleges have Marxist professors and University students are taught Che Gueverra was good, a fighter and an idol.
The Communist Party USA brags about how they have been fighting for the Rights of Men and Women since 1919. Abortion rights; what about the child’s rights that are in the womb? Wild sex is okay, but women are “punished” if they become pregnant; abortions are promoted no matter what stage of pregnancy. Planned Parenthood was started by Margaret Sanger who thought the “unwanteds (black children) and “weeds” of society (disabled) and the “ignorant” should be disposed of (abortion). Marxists today promote population control and “sustainability” to push their agenda.
Thanks to Woodrow Wilson, we had years of where bigotry and racism were allowed to infiltrate the lives of Americans; gradually and purposely. Wilson started the League of Nations that later became the United Nations; currently promoting Global Socialism and the “sharing” of wealth between poor third world countries and the larger more prosperous countries. This all hails back to the Bible talking about giving a man a fish or teaching him to fish.
3. Unbeknownst to a lot of Americans, Saul Alinsky (the Obama idol) followed the works of Antiono Gramsci, an Italian Communist who believed in Communism through gradualism and Hegelian Dialect. Saul Alinsky also studied under Frank Nitti of the Al Capone mob of tactics used to “persuade” people. Saul Alinsky tactics have become front and center thanks to the “Sunshine” turned on by the Tea Party. The Tea Party are the defenders of the U.S. Constitution and believe in the U.S. founding documents. Instead of thanking the Tea Party for trying to preserve America, they are labeled as “Racists”, “Radicals”, “Extremists”, etc. by none other than the Democrat Party. What does that tell you America?
The true Progressive (Democrat) radicals and “community organizers” have come out of hiding. The Black Panthers that want to “kill some Crackers and White babies”, the pastor that claimed we are a nation of the KKKA., Che flags visible on the wall of an Obama campaign office, Obama condoned “Occupiers”, and now Code Pink “Dancing Vaginas”.
Unions that believe that they are the only ones right and everyone else is wrong.
Is THIS the America we have become?
4. The Obama administration promoting food stamps and welfare (now without any work restrictions). Think about this: 47% of Americans are now on food stamps; how many are on government welfare? Whatever the government giveth; the government can also take away. Think about the Kristallnacht and Hitler. Hitler brought government to its knees during that time with the result of Germany’s populations begging for the government to help them. What happened then? Neighbors turning in neighbors, children inducted into Hitler’s youth squad, the slaughter of millions of Jews, Hitler’s using doctors to find the “perfect” child with BLUE eyes. Russian communists moved into the vacuum created by Hitler losing WWII. East Germany was a Soviet controlled bloc until Reagan worked to free the people by uttering “Mr. Gorbachev, tear dow this wall.” Note: Gorbachev also studied Gramsci Communism.
When you get into “friendly” discussion about food stamps and welfare with a recipient; ask them this, would YOU like to have your own money instead of living with the fear the “goodies” they receive may suddenly and purposely disappear? Then what. Cloward and Frances Fox Piven worked on a theory called the Cloward-Piven strategy. Basically to cause financial collapse causing the United States to convert from a free Capitalist society to a Socialism/Communism style society; everyone equal and the claim of “societal justice”. Do these recipients think that Obama and his minions will do the same? That they will give up their wealth and power to be “equal”?
Socialists and Communists aren’t really against Capitalism. They need it to “fuel” their agenda. They just don’t think other people should lay claim to profits; they believe they know better than anyone else. You see their objective is POWER and CONTROL; not that people really matter.
