Note from Rourke: Many may read the following review of the documentary AGENDA: Grinding America Down and laugh at the suggestion that Communism has any influence on current events today. There is a strong parallel between the modern Progressive movement and Communism. Skeptical? Visit the Communist Party USA website – http://www.cpusa.org/ and see for yourself.
As mentioned in my comment the other night, I took notes while viewing the documentary AGENDA: Grinding America Down. In a private e-mail conversation, Rourke asked me to submit the notes to Modern Survival Online. I did watch the video one more time, largely to make sure the quotes were correct. I added a few important facts, so these notes are not necessarily in the exact same order as mentioned in the video. The video portrays the grim situation of Socialist/Communist plans to destroy the United States as a Capitalistic country. I highly recommend purchasing this DVD and watching it yourself, no matter what your political beliefs are! THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO, just my opinion of the most important details.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Communist Party U.S.A. split into the Committees of Correspondence and the Democratic Socialists Of America. Writer/Producer/Director and narrator, Curtis Bowers was invited to a Committees Of Correspondence meeting in Berkley, CA on a summer weekend in 1992. MANY OF THESE COMMUNISTS FROM THE COMMITTEES OF CORRESPONDENCE ARE ON BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S STAFF OR WERE INVOLVED IN HIS ELECTION CAMPAIGNS. UP TO 20% OF THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS BELONGS TO THE PROGRESSIVE CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS. THEY ARE TIED TO THE OTHER HALF OF THE OLD COMMUNIST PARTY U.S.A., THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF AMERICA. These Congressmen/women are members of powerful committees within the House Of Representatives.
Over 15 years after attending this meeting, Writer/Producer/Director Curtis Bowers read a listing of goals in the book The Naked Communist. These were made in 1958. He then was sort of shocked in that these were the same goals discussed by the American Communists in 1992. More surprising, was how successful the Communists had been.
Communist plans from 1992: Destroy our families by promoting co-habitation instead of marriage and try to get kids away from the parents at the earliest possible age. Also, get behind the Feminist movement by making women discontent with marriage and motherhood. Destroy Free Markets and business with over regulation and taxation. Use the Environmental Movement to bring down business as well. Demean and degrade religion by getting Americans to accept homosexuality, basically undermine Judeo/Christian values. Again, THESE ARE THE SAME GOALS SPELLED OUT IN THE BOOK FROM 1958.
Communism started the Homosexual, Environmental and Feminist movements. [Rourke: ModernSurvivalOnline is not anti-gay]
Fact: Communism killed more people THAN ALL WARS COMBINED, OVER 135 MILLION. If you tie in abortion as part of the Marxist plot, the number increases to 500 million.
The Communists realized that it is much harder to conquer a unified nation. This is why liberals always pit groups against each other: rich vs poor, black vs white, young vs old, etc. Hitler used the same tactics in rebuilding Germany after World War I. The plan is to create conflict, then the government steps in to end it. The people accept government intervention under the belief that they are being saved, or protected. OBAMA TAUGHT THIS AS A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER FOR ACORN!
Tools for destroying Capitalism:
1) Media – For decades, journalists have been taught to “interpret” the news instead of honestly reporting the facts. By controlling the media and print news, liberals can mold the minds of the people.
2) Education – The Father of Public Education, John Dewey, went to Russia in 1928. He was a Socialist and Atheist. He believed education should get children to become willing to submit to the state. The radicals who protested in the 1960’s are now college professors! Anti-God, anti-American and anti-Free Enterprise. Education is twisted to change history. Children are trained in a collective mindset, believe that it is Government that provides for them and end up becoming wards of the state. Public schools cost twice as much as private schools, but produce dumber kids. Public education supports abortion, homosexuality and replacing what parents teach as right and wrong because paternal guidance is based on religion.
3) Environmentalism – The government must control use and distribution of energy. The founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, quit when he realized that Leftists were using the Environmental Movement as a vehicle to destroy Capitalism. In DEC 09, when “Climategate” broke out, Environmentalists knew that “Global Warming” was a farce.
The movie charts the historical relationships from Karl Marx to Students For A Democratic Society (SDS) to REV Jim Wallis to BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. Also, from Marx to SDS to the Weather Underground to William Ayers to OBAMA. Finally, Marx to Antonio Gramsci to Saul Alinsky to Cloward Piven to ACORN to Barack Hussein Obama.
The Left has started a multitude of foundations and non-profit organizations, in many cases, using our tax dollars: ACLU, ACORN, PETA, CAIR, MOVEON.ORG, PLANNED PARENTHOOD.
Karl Marx quote: “My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy Capitalism”.
Vladimir Lenin quote: “The goal of Socialism is Communism”.
Stalin Quote: “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is three fold: its patriotism, morality and spiritual life. If we can undermine these 3 areas, America will collapse from within.”
Saul Alinsky states in the dedication of his book, Rules For Radicals: “Lest we forget an over-the-shoulder acknowledgement to the very first radical, the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom…Lucifer”
In summary, Curtis Bowers did extensive research in revealing that the Communists, with support of the Left, have been working for decades to destroy America from within. In order to accomplish the task of conquering Capitalism, the influence of God, morality and the family had to be degraded. As society starts to crumble, the state picks up the pieces. He points out that history supports his observations in that Dictators such as Hitler, Lenin, Mao, Castro ALL CAME INTO POWER PROMISING POSITIVE CHANGE. Bowers did admit that most liberals are NOT Communists. He quoted Lenin, they are the “Useful idiots” required to fulfill the nefarious plans.
FINAL THOUGHTS (IRISH-7)
My take on the movie is this: I’VE SAID THIS FOR DECADES, without doing the historical research! I share these thoughts, tying them into the MARXIST MOSLEM in the White House several times a day on social media. Anyway, I again encourage EVERYONE to watch this documentary. There just may be hope for us after all!
