Another Oldie but Goodie

I know I've posted this before, maybe linked from DANEgerus.  But it's good enough to post again.  And again.  And again.  The 45 goals from The Naked Communist.  Link takes you to Curmudgeonly & Skeptical.

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.  (They did that.  I remember being told that we just have to accept the USSR, because it's not going away.  Leftists told me that.)
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.  (Leftists crying for America to disarm itself.  Still occurring today)
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.  (Being done today.)
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.  (Being done today)
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.  (Done.  And done.)
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.  (I can still remember when the wall came down)
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.  (Done today)
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.  (First part done.  Second part not yet, but they're working on it.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.  (Much like how the League of Women Voters don't want the Pledge of Allegiance recited before a debate.)
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.  (Continued.)
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.  (The Democrat Party, who's planks and plans are now identical to anything the USSR or the German National Socialist Workers party could come up with, minus the gas chambers and ovens.)
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.  (Done, and still continuing.)
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.  (Done, so completely that there's really no hope of fixing them.  See Kevin Baker's essays on the American School System.  Hopeless is too nice a word to describe them.)
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.  (And all professional ones too!  Done and done.)
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.  (Done.  Started in the 60's, and still going on.)
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.  (Done.)
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.  (Done.)
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. Skousen claimed that an American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."  (Public Art, financed by the National Endowment of the Arts, is so friggin' UGLY that you can tell immediately where it came from.)
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums.  (Which is how "public" art gets shown, despite looking like a dog's shaved ass.)
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.  (I remember the court case where cartoon child pr0n was ruled a 1st Amendment issue.  NAMBLA is a 1st Amendment issue.  I'd say this goal is accomplished.)
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.  (Done.  The things they say on TV wouldn't even make it into the movies forty years ago.)
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy." Skousen claimed Communists sought to encourage the practice of masturbation.  (Ummmmm...  done, done, done, and done.  And still going.)
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."  (Done.  And still continuing.)
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."  (DONE!)
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.  (A mantra I keep hearing from the Left on a continual basis.)
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."  (Or get collage professors to refer to them as a bunch of "dead white guys".  Done.)
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.  (Done.)
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.  (Done, so friggin done that it'll take a bloody war to get it out.)
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.  (Done.)
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.  (Done.)
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.  (Not so much, but the CIA is pretty much discredited right now.)
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.  (Done, totally and completely.)
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.  (Partially done.  Big business doesn't lend itself well to communism.)
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.  (Done, and the medication of America's youth proceeds uninhibited.)
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.  (And label conservatives as "crazy".)
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity, masturbation and easy divorce.  (Done, done and done.  The independent family interferes with the god-parent state.)
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.  (Kinda like how the Left and the teachers unions describe homeschooling!)
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.  (Until the Tea Parties do it, then it's bad.)
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.  (Much like Afghanistan right now.)
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.  (Done.  Thanks, Jimmah the fucking peanut Carter!)
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.  (Well, they're trying).

I'm counting 40 out of 45 goals that have been accomplished off that list, and one of the goals doesn't apply any more since Germany is re-united.  Does that tell you how fucked we are as a country?  The damage done by communism, and it's worshippers in the Democrat American Communist Party is still being incurred.  My mind keeps going back to my mom telling me to expect another civil war in my life time.  I still believe it can happen, and most likely will.  The only question is when, and how much blood will be shed.  We'll see what happens after tomorrow.  If we can repeal the dead weight of big government, we might stand a chance.  If the new congresscritters get into office and transform into the people they replaced?  Fuck it.

Re: 24

What does the National Association of Marlon Brando Look Alikes have to do with anything?

(sorry, couldn't resist)
