Race Is Not The Issue — It’s Socialism

Ulsterman’s White House Insider predicted it last year.  But the issue is not about race, not at all. It’s about socialism.  And the well-funded, well-coordinated — some might even say conspiratorial — effort to establish it in America:

House Dems Trained To Make Race The Issue

House Democrats received training this week on how to address the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.

The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.

In her distributed remarks, Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion criticized conservative messages [that are] racially ‘coded’ and had images of people of color that we commonly see used” and proposed tactics for countering the Republicans’ (presumably) racially-coded rhetoric.

From KeyWiki, we learn that Maya Wiley is the “founder and Director of Tides Center project Center for Social Inclusion, an applied research and advocacy organization which supports community groups to dismantle structural racism.”

“Social Inclusion” is, of course, an encoded Leftist message for the establishment of socialism via community activism (a prior avocation of Barack Obama’s).

“A civil rights attorney and social justice advocate [i.e., socialist], she has worked for the ACLU, the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. Maya Wiley also served as an advisor to the Open Society Institute  and as a consultant to the Open Society Foundation” (George Soros projects).

“The Editorial Advisory Group of the magazine Social Policy includes Noam Chomsky, Janice Fine, S. M. Miller, Peter Olney, Frances Fox Piven, Heather Booth, Peter Dreier, Maya Wiley, Robert Fisher, Ashutosh Saxena, Ken Grossinger.”

Socialists and communists, one and all. You will perhaps remember Ms. Piven for the notorious 1966 Cloward-Piven strategy designed to overwhelm the American system. Or Mr. Chomsky, who said, “achieving real democracy will require that the whole system of corporate capitalism be completely dismantled…”.  Or Mr. Olney, former SEIU hack, who has lectured at the Sacramento Marxist School and before the Democratic Socialists of America.  Or Mr. Grossinger, student and amigo of the above-mentioned Mr. Cloward, whose obituary he penned for the journal of the Democratic Socialists: “…our movement lost a light that guided four decades of antipoverty, welfare rights and voting rights activists and scholars.”  Or Ms. Booth, a graduate of Saul  Alinsky’s Chicago school for radicals.  Or Professor Dreier, member of Tom Hayden’s group, Progressives For Obama, of whom a former student said, “Dreier … romanticizes Socialism and Communism, often ignoring the brutal truth about those economic systems, in order to indoctrinate his students. To that point, students in this course are expected to write a paper on one book from a list of several he has picked. Among them: Talkin’ Socialism; California Red: A Life in the American Communist Party; and The Romance of American Communism.

Barack Obama is a socialist, if not worse.  The people around him are socialists, if not worse.  The activists working to re-elect him are socialists, if not worse.  And if Obama is re-elected, all of us will end up living in an America that is socialist, if not worse.

Newly declassified documents from Operation SOLO, an FBI program to infiltrate the Communist Party of the United States, reveal that a journal called Freedomways, which was influential in the black community for decades, was subsidized by the Soviet and Chinese Communist Parties.

[…] During the 25 years it served as a propaganda organ for the CPUSA and Soviet front organizations such as the World Peace Council, Freedomways published articles by such figures as:

Derrick Bell, one of Barack Obama’s academic mentors and a Harvard professor;

Martin Luther King, Jr., the slain civil rights leader who turned against the Vietnam War and has been honored with a national memorial in Washington, D.C.;

John Lewis, a Democratic member of Congress from Georgia and critic of the conservative Tea Party movement; and

Jesse Jackson, a former aide to King and Democratic candidate for president who has recently been stirring up racial resentment over the killing of black teenager Trayvon Martin.

  1. We are at the crossroad, Bob. We are going to find out in November if are going to be a socialist country or are we going to start down the long road to recovering our republic. If it’s to be the later, we are going to have to reclaim our culture, as well.

    • Bob Mack says:

      That’s a lotta reclaiming to do … while I’ve always been somewhat libertarian on so-called ‘social issues’ — live an’ let live, so to speak — the self-proclaimed cultural elites have gone so far off the deep end that I find my positions have hardened. I don’t wanna give ’em an inch any more, ’cause they always take 10 miles. Hell, I no longer wanna give ’em anything!

  2. May you live in interesting times....is definitely a curse. says:

    I hope it’s only that bad. I fear that we’re on the verge of finding out if we’re going to be a continuing Republic or a totalitarian dictatorship. Things are weirder than I have seen them in my lifetime; I eel like i’m living in a distopian sci-fi novel…

    • Bob Mack says:

      You bet … I thought weirdness was in the air like incense in the ’60s … now we’re having summer re-runs of My Mother The Communist.

    Yeah, yeah, I know that Ben Bradlee has retired from the Washington Post, but he is still revered there and his spirit still animates the place. Therefore it is surelyimportant news that I have been informed, on good authority, and even confirmed by the sister of the girl who was victimized by being shown the piece of paper in question — in other words, there will be no retraction needed from THIS report — that, in Third Grade, Ben Bradlee wrote a dirty limerick on a piece of construction paper and showed it to a girl named Marybeth. It made her cry. Tragically, the long-term effect was that it warped Marybeth’s morals so badly that she had to start using birth control at age 13 — and, worse, she had to pay for it herself! Because she had to use her baby-sitting money for that purpose instead of being able to save it to pay for college, she was forced to work as a secretary instead of becoming CEO of a non-profit dedicated to promoting compulsory unionization of sex workers. Secret Service agents have therefore been able to continue underpaying the ladies on 14th Street in Washington DC. But at least one of the sex workers ended up okay: The Obama campaign paid her a nice sum for her life story. Her name is Julia.

  6. The RACE CARD has been SO overplayed that it no longer means anything, but this nation IS on the verge of serious racial violence…

    It seems that some believe WHITE folks will just stand still and let BLACKS kill them or let them destroy their property…

    Those folks would be what I like to call WRONG…

    Locked and loaded, well prepared and damned sure not afraid to drop as many as need be to protect ME, my wife and our home…

      The Reds have been trying to foment racial violence in America for 60 years, as I discovered while I was doing research for my book on Jackie Robinson & the ’49 Dodgers.

    From The American Spectator blog, May 13, 2012:

    Key Soros Ally Provides Race-Rhetoric Training Session for House Democrats

    A non-profit organization that provided training last week to House Democrats, portraying Republican opponents as racially motivated, has received significant funding from foundations linked to controversial left-wing multibillionaire George Soros.

    Soros’s Open Society Institute has given $75,000 to the Center for Social Inclusion, which has also received more than $850,000 from the Soros-connected Tides Foundation/Tides Center since 2005, according to documents obtained by The American Spectator.

    […] The Soros-Wiley connection was noted by Matthew Vadum of the Capital Research Center. Vadum, an investigative reporter and American Spectator contributor, is author of the widely-praised recent book Subversion, Inc., an exhaustive exposé of ACORN. Wiley’s background also drew attention from Michelle Horstman of PJ Media, who noted that Maya Wiley is the daughter of 1960s radical George Wiley, founder of the National Welfare Rights Organization.

    Soros-Funded Alinsky Smear Machine Invades Congress

    George Soros is behind a newly uncovered effort to teach Democratic congressmen how to smear their opponents as racist.

    […] Trainer Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion blasted “conservative messages [that are] racially ‘coded’ and had images of people of color that we commonly see used” and suggested ways to combat Republicans’ supposedly racially-coded rhetoric.

    …Facts don’t matter in Wiley’s estimation. “It’s emotional connection, not rational connection that we need,” she said.

    Wiley offered that Newt Gingrich calling Obama a “food stamp president,” cannot be “a race-neutral statement, even if Newt Gingrich did not intend racism.” In other words, all criticism of Obama is rooted in racism.

    Wiley, a so-called civil rights attorney, is the daughter of the late George Wiley, the leader of the now-defunct National Welfare Rights Organization. NWRO created ACORN in 1970 and President Obama worked for ACORN in his community organizing days

    The Center’s involvement with left-leaning politicians shouldn’t be all that surprising given that the Democratic National Committee is now headed by the Alinsky-loving Patrick Gaspard, a longtime SEIU-ACORN operative. Gaspard, not titular DNC head Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), runs the DNC’s everyday operations as executive director. Gaspard was previously the Obama White House political affairs director, the same title Karl Rove held in President Bush’s administration.

    Gaspard comes from the same world of radical in-your-face left-wing community organizing that shaped Barack Obama. Like Obama he is well schooled in the brutal, street-smart organizing tactics taught by the late Saul Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals. Wiley’s training session has Gaspard’s fingerprints all over it. It is inconceivable that she moved forward without his permission. In fact, Gaspard almost certainly invited her to Capitol Hill.

  9. Wow,
    A psychologist, who you will label as a socialist–Erich Fromm– wrote more than fifty years ago. That brilliant, lively man wrote that this culture is a “sick society.” He is lucky to have died before seeing how absolutely right he was, as of 2013. Not from socialists, communists, liberals, or any thoughtful, caring people in this country or on planet earth, but latter-day Luddites, reactionaries, archaic, obsolete specimens of a dying age and paradigm. It would be good you tolls don’t destroy everything before decent people can redress the evil ills your kind perpetuates. Sad, and Shamful.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Socialists & communists are “thoughtful, caring people” ?? Tell it to the millions they’ve slaughtered. I notice that, as all members of (and I quote) “your kind,” you insult rather than refute. Take it back to the comrades, pal.
