'Not Believing' Doesn't Make It 'Not True'

‘Not Believing’ Doesn’t Make It ‘Not True’

I know what I have to say will be difficult for Obama sycophants who are unable to sit down without hurting their necks because of where they have stored their heads. Specific to that point, the depth of their intellectual dishonesty and their willingness to dismiss fact in the face of fiction is emblematic of the dissonance that disaffects them.

Obama is either an all-in Communist or he is a Neo-Leninist; albeit in my lexicon, I employ the two interchangeably. My usage notwithstanding, a vehicle doesn’t have to be red, have ladders or hoses to be a fire truck, but if it is always seen in fire stations and/or at fires you can bet your children’s lunch money that it’s a fire truck.

My analogy being, that when at an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Obama spoke against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work, and there is a need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.” You can bet he not only meant what he said, but he was saying it from the perspective of a Communist.

In his deeply revealing article titled “Meeting Young Obama,” John Drew wrote:
Obama, however, had a starkly different view. He believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back in terms of the coming revolution. As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.

I know this may be implausible to some readers, but I distinctly remember Obama surprising me by bringing up Frantz Fanon and colonialism. He impressed me with his knowledge of these two topics, topics which were not among my strong points — or of overwhelming concern to me. Boss and Obama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism. While I felt I was doing them a favor by providing them with the latest research, I saw I was in danger of being cast as a reactionary who did not grasp the nuances of international Marxist theory.

Chandoo let Boss and Obama take the crux of the argument to me. Chandoo, in fact, seemed chagrined by the level of disagreement in the group. I cannot remember him making any significant comments during this discussion.

Drawing on the history of Western Europe, I responded it was unrealistic to think the working class would ever overthrow the capitalist system. As I recall, Obama reacted negatively to my critique, saying: “That’s crazy!”

Since Boss and Obama had injected theory into our debate, I reacted by going historical. As best I can recreate the argument, I responded by critiquing their perspective with the fresh insight I had gained from my recent reading of Barrington Moore’s book, Social Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy (1966). Moore had argued that a Russian or Chinese style revolution — leading to communism — was only possible in an agrarian society with a weak or non-existent middle-class or bourgeoisie.

Since I was a Marxist myself at the time, and had studied variations in Marxist theory, I can state that everything I heard Obama argue that evening was consistent with Marxist philosophy, including the ideas that class struggle was leading to an inevitable revolution and that an elite group of revolutionaries was needed to lead the effort. If he had not been a true Marxist-Leninist, I would have noticed and remembered. (SEE:

Drew’s account of his discussion with Obama, that evening, pulls the curtain back on much of what Obama does and says today. And only those who are either in complete agreement with him or are not intellectually sophisticated enough to realize they are nothing more than useful idiots would attempt to dispute that fact.

We talk of Cloward-Piven and the “useful idiots” scoff with a feigned air of intellectual superiority, but Cloward-Piven is not a conspiracy theory. Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven, authors of the Cloward-Piven strategy…wrote about collapsing the economy and how they planned to do it in the article they co-authored in the 60’s called, “Mobilizing the Poor: How it Could Be Done.” Six months later, it was published in The Nation, under the title “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.” (SEE: Cloward, Piven and the Fundamental Transformation of America; Glenn Beck; 1/5/10)

Simply put: Cloward and Piven were radical Columbia professors in the 1960’s who believed in “change” and “social justice.” Inspired by the riots in Los Angeles in 1965, they wrote and published their article which outlined the best way to bring the kind of Saul Alinsky-type social change to America. In their estimation, it was to overwhelm the system and bring about the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with impossible demands and bring on economic collapse.

This is the same philosophy that Obama argued with Drew in 1980. Let me repeat it for you. “A Russian or Chinese style revolution–leading to communism–[is] only possible in an agrarian society with a weak or non-existent middle-class or bourgeoisie.”

If what Obama is doing to the economy and if his style of so-called leadership appear more destructive than corrective, that’s because they are. Denying that this is his plan doesn’t make it not his plan. As my late grandmother used say: “Just because you don’t see the devil, doesn’t mean he’s not there.”

All of the greatest momentary “triumphs” of horrific injustice were said and/or thought to be impossible to take place–and that includes Hitler’s murdering Jews as well as the market crash of 1929. When the warnings of danger first went forth in both of historical nightmares, there existed many who argued those sounding the alarm were clueless alarmists who didn’t know what they were talking about.

    The real problem we are faced with now is all the drone Obama worshipers who would give this communist another four years to ruin the country. The devil doesn’t come with a pitch fork and horns. He shows up tall handsome with a slick tongue and a diabolical plan. If you would read the Cloward-Piven plan to overwhelm the government by getting poor people to make larger and larger demands you will understand that that is exactly what Obama is doing by increasing poverty, food stamps, Obamacare, and undoing the work requirement of welfare recipients. He knows that two things will happen. 1. The price of these programs will be so high that the government want be able to pay for them.2 The national debt will be so high that it will destroy the country.

      BINGO!!!! You understand this in 100% clarity.

    I think Obama must be deeply appreciating that the world is in disarray and radical Islamists have their opportunity to display their widespread
    hatred for our Country and all we stand for. Shame on him for his desecration of American ideals and the American flag. How coincidental
    that the precious blood of American soldiers be displayed on the wall of the embassy just before his ominous flag was put on the market. Is it love that is blind or hate?

    When I was 6 years old, and in Religious Education, my teacher said to the class, “How do you spell the word I, in I believe in God”. The whole class said EYE. I raised my little hand and said, “Capital I”. The class roared,laughed, and called me stupid. Well that teacher said to me,”You are correct,they are wrong”. “You little girl always stick to your Guns”. Well as the years past, I have stuck to my guns. I am a American Conservative Woman. I have had to stick up for myself, my kids, and my husband on numerous occasions, all in the name of Freedom of Speech.I have been called not a woman,because I do not think there is “War On Women” in this country. I post an American Flag on my Facebook Page that says,”If this Flag Offends you, I will help you Pack”. For that I get nothing but grief.Am I paranoid, or is there a Conquer and Divide going on? American fighting against each other, while the “REAL PROBLEM”,is Slipping in the Back Door!

    This is what I have believed all along. Ob's plans ARE succeeding.

    His destruction of the economy is key to his dream of a Communist run country where there is no powerful middle class, only a massive, low-income, serfdom and the rich upperclass of the leadership… just like back in the good ol' USSR.

    • Susan Tenofsky September 21, 2012 at 6:01 pm #

      This has been his plan all along. Down with America! Down with Freedom.

    Libs are going to vote for Oman, we know this. Libs won’t care what Romney has to say in the debates because they are not going to change their minds about Oman, the newspeak man. They think his ‘Occupy the White House’ has been wonderful. We have been warned that when Omen “talks,” he means the opposite. I hope that Romney is astute and doesn’t get sucked into some topic that means diddly squat. By the way, Mychal, I do enjoy your recalls of what your grandmother told you! She should have been Secretary of State-then we wouldn’t be in this current, putrid foreign affairs mess.

    I find it curious to read "If Obama were a white man." Isn't he? If some consider him a black man shouldn't he also be called a white man? Or is that just a "skin color" issue? I'm not trying to kindle a fire. Just an observation. We'd be just as disgusted with him no matter what. That's the only issue.

    • pblee September 20, 2012 at 10:42 pm #

      The race card is the ultimate card to draw in the case of our current president. He has no qualifications in regard to public office or service, in that he can’t point to a single act of service to his church or temple or commuity; no experience in the world of business, in that he never been gainfully employed in a productive business of any kind (to the extent that he has never even run a roadside farm stand), and he merely has warmed the seat of a great state in the US Senate by voting “present” for the brief period he sat in a chair. The white equivalent of Barry is Joe Biden, but I digress…

      The issue here is simply a choice between A: A Communist hellbent on taking down the United States with it’s consent OR B: Not a Communist who wishes the continuation of the blessings of freedom as we know it and we can sort it out starting the day after the election.

      Concerning his blackness or whiteness or whateverness, he prefers to be known as black because he can stir up more trouble playing the oppressed great grandson of a slave and a successful black man that has overcome unbelievable injustices rather than the son of a Marxist white female and a rich black man from Kenya. He has no lineage from any time in the history of this country that tolerated slavery. How inconvenient.
      I don’t remember the author, but I read the other day that in fact, Obama is more Arab than black coming from his father’s heritage. How about that? He’s descended from slave traders not slaves. Also, another article about his “poor poverty stricken” life shows that he’s led a better heeled life than most of us. He attended private schools in Indonesia and Hawaii and top notch colleges in the United States. Upscale right side of the tracks neighborhoods and high dollar housing everywhere he’s lived.
      And this was all in his books to be known if the media had just done a little investigation that we could do. But they were more interested in the tingle in their legs and his amazing speeches than facts. What’s the old adage? Don’t believe anything you hear, very little of what you read and don’t trust what you see. Something like that. There should be something added about the government.

    How did islam spread so quickly? How did the communists take over Russia and China? The peasants had terrible lives, and any other system had to be better to their way of thinking. So the middle class must be destroyed; the people who have relatively good lives. Make their lives miserable and desperate and communism will look good. I have a step-daughter in law who was raised under communism in Poland and she still thinks it was a pretty good system, everybody had a job. Of course, there was nothing to buy with the little wages one was paid: irrelevant! She is naturally an Obama supporter. I weep for our nation.

    Escellent rant. If it weren’t for my faith in God, I believe I would be looking for another country to call home–that is if there were another country which could compare the the historical USA. I continue to pray for God’s intervention in the upcoming election.

    Mychal, your grandmother was a very wise woman! You must take after her! :-)

    Whether they are Neo-Leninists or all-in-Communists or just plain ole’ A-Holes who hate capitalism, we have a classic case of inmates running the asylum! Sadly, some of the other inmates can vote! And thus, we have this incredibly unbelieveable situation here in the good ole’ USA! I pray every day that the Lord will wake up our voting public, that they see the horror all around them, and that they willl vote Obama and his corrupt administration out!

    I believe it was Daniel Patrick Moynahan who commented that one is entitled to one’s own opinion, but not entitled to one’s own set of facts. The criminally negligent media in this country have their own set of opinions masquerading as facts relentlessly rammed down the throats of the ignorant public. The personal history of the president is a complete fantasy concocted by his handlers and diseminated by the media. They know it’s a lie. They are totally complicit in its cover-up and the resulting treasonous activity by Obama, namel the takedown of the US.

    The photo of the dope-smoking, arrogant ass says it all.
    PUT OUT THE TRASH on November 6, for the love of God. Do it for your children’s children. Do it for what remains of our country.

    Another astute article, Mychal. The neo-Leninists or whatever you want to call them have everything planned. Sometimes they get an unplanned Trayvon Martin incident & take advantage to stir civil unrest but that is always in the plan. What is it we don’t known about the Muslim ureast in the Middle East & Central Asia? I wonder what’s next.

    Refusing to listen to the truth doesn't make the truth a lie.

    Great article, Mr. Massie! There are people out there in the REAL world like your grandmother, who had insight. I believe that is missing from today's society. I believe we have it on different levels according to the person. I don't really call it "insight" per se, but more of a seventh sense. If you have that seventh sense, you can really see people for what they are if you listen to them closely…that is unless you are a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, who can't see the forest for the trees. I think there are quite a few people who "see" Obama for what he really is, and some of them are in denial simply because they are so enamored of his glib talk. Let me state right now and right here, that I am not one of those people. I am NOT impressed…and lastly I would add that if Mr. Obama was a white man, I would be JUST AS UNIMPRESSED! I would still be saying "Throw the bum out of there~".

    I am having nightmares of this man obtaining yet another wasteful term to further erode our once God-fearing, Christian-oriented nation into oblivion!

    Never in my lifetime would I have imagined that I would be living in a once Democratic nation now motivated by political correctness. All manner of honest and public discourse has been totally eradicated by a shiftless con man with a sinister smile, accompanied by brain-dead supporters whose mere existence is centered mainly on doing his bidding!

    America will never be able to live down the era of Obama nor the numerous errors in which he has shamefully and successfully implented. Some conservatives believe that he is simply suffering from massive egotism or severe psychological problems.

    I believe all of these provable symptoms and other concealed flaws are correlated along with a demonic aura emanating from the presence of this Chicago charlatan!

    I just pray that Romney and his handlers are able to comprise as much information as they can before the televised debates in projecting Obama’s embarrssing 4 year political record!
    Now is not the time for him to concern himself with the left’s useless concentration of p.c. rhetoric.

    Now is the time for him to exhibit the image of a true leader who will govern our nation efficiently and sensibly!

    • sumitch September 21, 2012 at 2:05 am #

      But Romney has to be careful how he presents the facts about Obama Renee. If he starts telling the truth about Allahbama they’ll whip the race card out so fast it would seem to appear out of thin air. He has to stay away from religion too. They can slaughter him because he’s Mormon. Showing the Right Rev. White film clips and the now famous “For the first time in my life blah blah” doesn’t seem to resonate somehow and I’m not too sure that this younger generation doesn’t see him with the joint in his face as cool and one of them.
      Better he stay with pulling out the provable facts of the last four years with the evidence readily available about the miserable failure of everything he’s done and the lies he’s told. He’d have less trouble with more evidence available and they’d have a harder time blaming it on racism and that they’re picking on the poor black man with film clips like we’ve been seeing lately. They can easily juxtapose what he’s said and done with hard cold facts showing otherwise.
      Start proving his failures and lies and tag them with “Why would you believe this man after the last four years, most of which he owned Congress”?
      Romney is learning about street fighting
