‘Stolen Our Flag': Pope Says Communists Are Closet Christians
NBC News ^ | 06/29/2014 | ReutersPosted on 6/29/2014, 12:34:47 PM by Rusty0604
Pope Francis, whose criticisms of unbridled capitalism have prompted some to label him a Marxist, said in an interview published on Sunday that communists had stolen the flag of Christianity.The pontiff gave an interview to Il Messaggero, Rome‘s local newspaper, to mark the feast of Saints Peter and Paul, a Roman holiday.
He was asked about a blog post in the Economist magazine that said he sounded like a Leninist when he criticized capitalism and called for radical economic reform.”I can only say that the communists have stolen our flag. The flag of the poor is Christian. Poverty is at the center of the Gospel,” he said, citing Biblical passages about the need to help the poor, the sick and the needy.”Communists say that all this is communism. Sure, twenty centuries later.
……Hollywood players and so-called journalists must be liberal, socialist, Marxist or communists?And, why does America create such waves of revulsion in these same liberals? Finally, why must these progressives do everything in their powers to obscure the agenda and acts of other Marxists, even those in high office harming the traditional interests of the US?In the absence of a better theory, one must deduct that in many important ways, leftism acts like a godless pseudo-religion, or cult.
Before It’s News
Survivopedia Illegal ImmigrantsWhen Obama was first running for office as President, he promised a “fundamental change for America.” That was enough to convince enough of our low information voters that they should give him a chance.
They were tired and dissatisfied with the way things were, having been carefully spoon fed by liberal politicians and pundits how “unfair” America was to them.Of course, Obama never really defined what he meant by a “fundamental change.” While some seem to think that was a mere oversight, I tend to think it was part of Obama’s master plan.
He knew that Americans wouldn’t readily accept the changes he was planning on making, so he kept them secret.Nevertheless, time has shown us what kind of change that Obama wants to make; ever since he entered office, he’s been working tirelessly to increase government’s size and control, while taking more and more of our freedom away from us. In essence, he’s turning the nation socialist, as a waypoint on the road to communism or outright tyranny.It’s clear that someone is masterminding Obama’s plan and has been working on it for years.
Barack & Marx: Why Revolution is the Only Game in Town… “His real mission in life was to contribute, in one way or another, to the overthrow of capitalist society and of the state institutions which it had brought into being, to contribute to the liberation of the modern proletariat…”

Much like DeQuincy’s autobiographical Confessions of an Opium Eater, a true Marxist is addicted to Revolution. Why? Because only through revolution can a liberal hope to overturn government enough to force his fellow citizens into embracing socialism. But why the desperate demand for all persons to acquiesce to communism?
Because Marxism is a religion, and a violently missionary one, at that.All history of Marxist movements proves this point. Further, Islam’s model of capitulate, or suffer, is a handy metaphor for leftism’s position. After all, no person should be allowed to live without suffering once the god has been rejected. Interestingly, madness and socialism have been the rule since Robert Owen’s 1825 New Harmony failed as the first socialist experiment.
Considering Barack’s rhetorical gifts, consider what his future would have held had he not stumbled into the snare of ideology.
Given his talents of promotion and his historical moment,
the Democrat party may have been able to build a permanent majority. Instead, Obama decided to worship directly his Marxist deity, scraping and bowing at the feet of his intellectual masters, and at every turn sabotaging America’s Democratic, Republican, and constitutional capitalist interests.
Barack remains the Hawaiian Coleridge, fogged in the miasma of an intellectual opium den, madly clawing the Asiatic pipe for another blessed toke, continually chasing the dragon.It is no accident that Engels stated, at Karl Marx’s graveside service, For Marx was before all else a revolutionist.
His real mission in life was to contribute, in one way or another, to the overthrow of capitalist society and of the state institutions which it had brought into being, to contribute to the liberation of the modern proletariat…

America’s Useful Idiots
By Steve McCannMany years ago, a phrase was coined by the leaders of the Soviet Union to describe those in the West who naively promoted the cause of Russian Communism when in reality they were held in contempt and were being cynically used by the Soviet hierarchy.
The term “useful idiot” more than ever applies to a vast swath of citizens in the United States who have been cynically used by the hardcore left for a cause they are unwilling to understand. Among the mysteries confronting those of us who have immigrated to the United States from countries that have experienced the devastating outcome of socialist/Marxist ideology is why seemingly successful and educated people could be so easily swayed to support those whose end-game is to transform the country into a socialist “utopia” and to control the day-to-day lives of all Americans.
Among these “useful idiots” are a seeming majority of the Jewish population as well as many in business, and nearly all in entertainment and the media.The answer appears to be that despite the hardcore left accounting for less than 20% of the population, their influence extends far beyond thanks to the apparent inability of their peripheral supporters to use any modicum of reasoning — as the left in the United States has been able to identify and manipulate those susceptible to emotional arguments.
Traditionally, the age-old Marxist strategy of fomenting class warfare and demonizing capitalism has been an effective tactic with those in the lower-income and education strata, who can be easily swayed to blame others for their perceived misfortune. However, in a nation, such as the United States, which has experienced great peace and prosperity for nearly seven decades and whose population is overwhelmingly middle-class, this argument alone cannot sway a sufficient number to support the ascension of those dedicated to socialist/Marxist ideology.
Cloward-Piven At The Border
Human Events ^ | June 9. 2014 | John HaywardPosted on 6/12/2014, 2:49:01 PM by MozillaBack in the Sixties, Marxists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven came up with a great strategy for overloading and collapsing democratic welfare states, paving the way for socialist tyranny.
When we think of Lincoln, most of us do not consider the sixteenth president as a Marxist revolutionary.
Yet, a little research uncovers some very interesting- slightly confounding- connections between Abe Lincoln and the father of the Communist movement. As fascinating as that might be, there is an even bigger shock in store when it comes to the origins of the Republican Party.
