People who talk about the left’s many social justice campaigns’ effectiveness to bring about a revolution against the American Republic sometimes disagree about the exact point when the movement started.
Some say it was Franklin Roosevelt and his massive New Deal; some say it was introducing the Communist Manifesto into Congress. Some say Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, producing Community Organizers, was when America really started to fall to revolution from within.
There are so many movements, in fact, that were designed to overthrow the Republic by weakening the power of the individual vote, that it is difficult to address them all in one article.
The left and their allies have attacked voter-supported systems in public schools, city governments, local governing boards, and the federal election and they did it openly.
Recently the left’s insurrection movements were heightened by the Democrats and the Media with demands of “reforms” of law enforcement, for example, with expert messaging, branding and PR and turned into a massive voter registration effort.
“Reform” is a word the left uses for diverting funds from where the taxpayers and voters want them to go, to going where activists and foreign influencers want the money to go.
Think about Black Lives Matter’s sole purpose with violent riots, it was to use pressure to force the city governments into shifting funding from law enforcement, which voters wanted, to social justice boards, which is what the left wanted.
But that is ok, because social justice is seen as sexy and good and they have t-shirts, merch, celebrity support and cool memes.
The left’s successful attempts to overthrow the American Republic should be something people study and understand, however, the majority of Americans simply don’t care to, and that is how we got into the mess we are in with every major platform pushing a narrative now that Trump supporters are “terrorists”.
That is what the victors of war do, they create the narrative and they make the rules, even when it is a one-sided war. America has never risen up and tried to stop the insurrection of the left, mostly, I believe because the left made it too sexy and cool to combat them, so people hid.
The left made it sexy to remove the power of our American citizenship, to where we have little to no power now, and it didn’t take any bloodshed, nor did they face much resistance. Now that their insurrection is complete they are framing, accusing and condemning everyone else of exactly what they, themselves are guilty of. That is how the left works.
The battle plans from the left have always been in the open, it’s just that few people took the left at their word when they said they were going to “reform” and “transform America”.
Nonprofits’ use to fund leftist groups and employ leftists who were “reforming” America is evident everywhere in our culture. Yet, few people care to combat the messaging, allowing them to run roughshod over other Americans’ civil rights, which may disagree with the need for such transformations and reforms.
Consider the battle cries from the website of ACORN, a major social justice beacon, who ultimately helped shape this generations’ most successful Community Organizers into world leaders. John Kerry, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the entire generation of hippie boomers, who thrived from overthrowing the American Republic, grew up on ACORN Merch and books.
“ACORN was the nation’s largest community organization of low and moderate-income families, working together for social justice and stronger communities. From 1970 to its end in 2010, ACORN had grown to more than 175,000 member families, organized in 850 neighborhood chapters in 75 cities across the U.S. and in cities in Canada, the Dominican Republic and Peru.
ACORN’s accomplishments included successful campaigns for better housing, schools, neighborhood safety, health care, job conditions, and more. ACORN members would participate in local meetings and actively work on campaigns, elect leadership from the neighborhood level up, and pay the organization’s core expenses through membership dues and grassroots fundraisers.”
If you want to understand the history of real insurrection, study an ACORN manual from 1978.
COMMUNITY ORGANIZING MEETS POLITICS
From their site, ACORN clearly shows people how Community Organizers overthrew the power of the American electorate:
“ACORN continued to expand and won major victories in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Also in the 1990s, ACORN began pursuing new directions on the political front. Through the initiative process, ACORN put strong campaign finance reform measures on the ballot and won overwhelming voter support. ACORN members also spearheaded the creation of locally-based independent parties, which put dozens of progressive candidates in office.
ACORN’s long-standing concern with education reform led to the creation of alternative public schools in several cities. The ACORN schools emphasized small classes, parent involvement, and community-oriented curricula.
ACORN also mounted campaigns against privatizing public schools, as well as calling for adequate funding and qualified teachers.
ACORN took the lead in organizing broad-based community and labor coalitions in support of a living wage. By the close of the 1990s, 41 cities had passed living wage laws requiring that employers who receive government contracts or subsidies pay their employees at least enough to lift a family of four above the poverty level.
The living wage campaign continued to catch fire, with coalitions forming in dozens of cities. More local ordinances and the first city-wide minimum wage initiative were passed, and a federal living wage bill was introduced but did not pass.
With ACORN no longer on the scene, other groups have carried on the fight. Increasing the Federal Minimum Wage to a living wage level was a focus issue in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Welfare Reform and Worker’s Rights:
The 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act (PRWOA) welfare “reform”, sometimes called “workfare”, required recipients to work in order to receive benefits. ACORN organized workfare workers to demand the same rights other workers enjoy , as well as assistance with the child care, transportation, and job training necessary to make the transition from welfare to work.
When PRWOA was up for reauthorization in 2002, ACORN played a leading role in a national campaign to improve the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program. PRWOA had created TANFA to replace Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program, which had been in existence since 1935 . ”
And on and on it goes.
The left is the insurrectionists, they are the ones who overthrew the government, and it appears that now they are finished with that, and they won, they are looking for someone to be the scapegoat.
The people who will be blamed for overthrowing the US government, be you and me, Trump supporters and Conservatives and all generations before us, allowed it to happen.
That is the truth.
