Bill Ayers: Overcoming the Failings of Capitalist Education, Creating Something Truly New and Deeply Humane

Original Source of Photo Unknown


The following is a speech from Bill Ayers, to the World Education Forum in Caracas, Venezuela, when Barack Hussein Obama, whose political career he helped launch, was 44 years old:

“…Education is never neutral. It always has a value, a position, a politics. Education either reinforces or challenges the existing social order, and school is always a contested space—what should be taught? In what way? Toward what end? By and for whom? At bottom, it involves a struggle over the essential questions: what does it mean to be a human being living in a human society?

“Totalitarianism demands obedience and conformity, hierarchy, command and control. Royalty requires allegiance. Capitalism promotes racism and materialism—turning people into consumers, not citizens. Participatory democracy, by contrast, requires free people coming together, voluntarily as equals who are capable of both self-realization and, at the same time, full participation in a shared political and economic life.”

There’s lot’s more. Read the rest, here.

Hillary and Obama, "First"?


The Democrats would like us to believe that Hillary Clinton is the first female to seek the Democratic nomination for president and Barrak Obama the first black man to run.

Oh and lest we forget, the first “black President” was Bill Clinton you will recall and if Hillary wins, Slick Willy could become the first black ex-president to occupy the WH…the dynamic duo…sure to wreck this country…oh but don’t ask a Democrat about that. You’ll likely get “Well! That was then, this is no! Who cares about history or truth?”

Once again deception and misleading information seem to lead the way for Democrats who rely upon America’s seemingly short memories.

Hillary is NOT the first woman nor is Obama the first black man. Jesse Jackson was the first black man to run for president and launched his first campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984. Shirley Chisolm was the first black [and] woman to run. This election is not historic by any stretch of the imagination despite what they would like us to believe. It is just another Democrat SOP (Standard Operating Procedure)…nothing new…business as usual from the far left in today’s politics.

The facts do not back up the Democrats claim. As evidence, I submit the following:

June 8, 1872

OUR NOMINEES.

These are Victoria C. Woodhull, the woman; and Frederick Douglass, the Negro.

In the ninety-sixth year of the republic of the United States, they represent classes, who may justly be termed, even yet, the pariahs of our modern system of civilization.

In the nomination of Victoria C. Woodhull for the office of President, the Equal Rights Party virtually arraigns the despotism over woman as exercised in this Republic, as being, in this particular, more intolerant than that of the monarchies of Europe, and points those who dispute this statement to the long and beneficent rule of another Victoria cheerfully submitted to by the people of Great Britain.

In the nomination of Frederick Douglass for the office of Vice President, the Equal Rights Party proposes to set the seal of the nation on the issues of the war of the rebellion; to exhibit to the world that our people are a unit in the defense of the rights of all mankind; and to reset the Government on the right track, which has heretofore been traversing the tortuous windings of the slavery compromises of the first Constitution.

The following information from Wikipedia:

Victoria Claflin Woodhull (September 23, 1838June 9, 1927) was an American Suffragist who was publicized in Gilded Age newspapers as a leader of the American Woman’s Suffrage Movement in the 19th century. She became a colorful and notorious symbol for women’s rights, free love, and labor reforms. The authorship of her speeches and articles is disputed. Some contend that many of her speeches on these subjects were not written by Woodhull herself, but her role as a representative of these movements was nonetheless powerful and controversial.

She is probably most famous for her declaration to run for the United States Presidency in 1872.

GOP Convention of 1872 in Philadelphia

You would expect to hear harmony at the glorious Academy of Music in Philadelphia, the site of the 1872 convention.

Ulysses S. Grant

Indeed, it was so. Only the sweet sound of party harmony wafted from the grand concert hall when the GOP gathered there on June 5, 1872, to nominate President Ulysses S. Grant for a second term.

Of course, there were plenty of Republicans who could no longer stomach the stench of corruption, nepotism and ineptitude that polluted the Grant Administration. But these naysayers did not come to Philadelphia.

Horace Greeley

Those determined to dump Grant created a party organization called the Liberal Republicans. They gathered in Cincinnati in May, and after much dissension and six ballots chose New York Tribune publisher Horace “Go West Young Man” Greeley — a sure loser — as its presidential candidate. Staunch Republicans would refer to the rebel group as “The Cincinnati Sore Heads.”

Later the Democrats met in Baltimore determined to elect anyone but Grant. In one of the strangest presidential conventions ever, the Democrats endorsed Greeley and the Liberal Republican platform during a convention that lasted only six hours.

Liberal Fascism



The facts your liberal friends need to hear
By Jonah Goldberg

Liberals, perhaps more than anyone, believe that we should be vigilant against the threat of fascism. Now, they also believe that fascism can only come from the Right–I think they’re wrong. But, what liberals – and everyone else – very much need to understand is that whatever direction fascism comes from, it’s popular. Fascism succeeds in democratic countries because it convinces people that it’s the wave of the future, it’s progressive, it’s young, it’s vital, it’s exciting. Fascists promise to fix what’s broken in our democracy, to heal our wounds, to deliver us to promised lands. So if you think fascism comes from the Right, fine. But at least keep in mind that it won’t sell itself as dull, or uptight, or old-fashioned.

Let me take a moment to give you a concrete sense of what I mean.

Fascism appealed to youth activists. Indeed, the Nazis and Fascists were in major respects youth movements. In 1931, 60 percent of all German undergraduates supported the Nazi Student Organization. “Their goal,” the historian John Toland wrote of the young idealists who fed the Nazi rise to power, “was to establish a youth culture for fighting the bourgeois trinity of school, home and church.”

Meanwhile, middle and lower class Germans were attracted to the economic and cultural populism of Nazism. The Nazi party began as the German Worker’s Party. The Nazi’s economic rhetoric was eerily similar to John Edwards “Two Americas” talk. The Nazis promised to clamp down on Big Business – particularly department stores, the Wal-Marts of their day – and end the class struggle. Theodore Abel, an impressively clever American sociologist, gives us insight into why working class Germans were attracted to Nazism. In 1934, Abel took out an ad in the Nazi Party journal asking “old fighters” to submit essays explaining why they had joined. He restricted his request to “old fighters” because so many opportunists had joined the party after Hitler’s rise. The essays were combined in the fascinating book “Why Hitler Came Into Power”. One essayist, a coal miner, explained, “Though I was interested in the betterment of the workingman’s plight, I rejected [Marxism] unconditionally. I often asked myself why socialism had to be tied up with internationalism-why it could not work as well or better in conjunction with nationalism.” A railroad worker concurred, “I shuddered at the thought of Germany in the grip of Bolshevism. The slogan ‘Workers of the World Unite!’ made no sense to me. At the same time, however, National Socialism, with its promise of a community . . . barring all class struggle, attracted me profoundly.” A third worker wrote that he embraced the Nazis because of their “uncompromising will to stamp out the class struggle, snobberies of caste and party hatreds. The movement bore the true message of socialism to the German workingman.”

Nazism’s appeal to the professional classes was just as strong. Raymond Dominick, a historian specializing in the history of German environmentalism, found that by 1939, 59 percent of conservationist leaders had joined the Nazi party, while only 10 percent of adult males had. Forty five percent of medical doctors had joined and roughly one quarter of teachers and lawyers had. The two groups of professionals with the highest rates of participation in the Nazi Party? Veterinarians were first and foresters were a close second. Dominick found a “unique nexus between National Socialism and nature conservation.”

The Nazis and Italian Fascists won over big business, cultural elites, the youth and the lower-classes because they portrayed themselves as heroically on the side of progress, protecting the environment and the poor. Fascists preached unity, togetherness and an end to division.

Liberals need to ask themselves where do they hear this rhetoric the most?

I’m not saying that merely being for the environment, the poor or national unity makes you a fascist. But what I am saying is that if you’re concerned about spotting fascism on the horizon you can’t just look at people you don’t like. That’s like only looking for your lost car keys where the light is good. Huey Long reportedly said that if Fascism comes to America it will be called “anti-Fascism.” Liberals can still make their arguments that fascism comes from the right. But until they understand that wherever fascism may come from, it never arrives save in a form that the best and the brightest are willing to accept with open arms.

And if liberals don’t know their history, they won’t be equipped to spot it when it comes knocking.

Jonah Goldberg is the author of the New York Times bestseller Liberal Fascism

Help made available to “liberals”.

My opinion;

While I disagree with the notion that liberals are actually friends, it is my opinion that true liberals are rare these days. In fact most liberals have slid so far left they are indistinguishable from leftist ideology.

Of course any leftist will laugh and say it is the right that are to blame for all the problems in the world, never once taking responsibility for their own actions…or should I say inactions. You know…if it feels good do it?…It’s what they do to maintain their fantasy, which resembles Alice in Wonderland on steroids.

The arrogance and intellectual dishonesty from the left is laughable and so easy to see through while they claim to want dialogue and debate. HA!

Personally I can think of vastly superior ways in which to waste my time.

Make no mistake, they are the enemy within. The sooner we realize that the sooner we can put an end to the leftist diatribe and ideology taking over this country, and the sooner America can get back to being the greatest nation on earth.

In his oft-repeated speech in the Roman Senate, Cicero, in 42 B.C. spoke these words:

“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.


For the traitor appears not a traitor – he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation – he works secretly and alone in the night to undermine the pillars of a city – he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resists. A murderer is less to be feared.”

“Once to every man and nation,
comes the moment to decide,

In strife of truth with falsehood
for the good or evil side.

Then the brave man chooses,
while the coward stands aside.

Til the multitudes make virtue
of faith they had denied.

Though the cause of evil prosper,
yet ’tis truth alone is strong.

Yet that scaffold sways the future
and behind the dim unknown

Standeth God within the shadow,
keeping watch above His own.”

Saturday Morning Indoctrination 101


Like most people my age (46), we grew up in an era when there was no cable TV and cartoons were the staple of Saturday mornings. These were the cartoons of a bygone age, Looney Tunes, Hannah-Barbera, Bugs Bunny, Scooby Doo, the Jetsons, etc.

Commercials were for the latest sugar laden cereal (when do you think Count Chocula, BooBerry and FrankenBerry, not to mention Cap’n Crunch, etc. got their start?) or the coolest new toy, often an upgrade for Barbie and Friends or the latest “Talking” doll for girls or the Hot Wheels racetracks with “loop the loop action” for boys.

Fast forward to today.

One channel (ABC) is an extension of Disney’s latest political correctness crap, with the usual nonsense of kids outsmarting adults all the time (indicating Disney’s real feelings toward adults)–shows such as “The Suite Life of Zach and Cody”, “Hannah Montana”, etc. Keep in mind Disney is also ultimately responsible for foisting such train wrecks as Brittney and Jamie Spears upon us, in direct contrast to the formerly wholesome kids Disney used to launch.

Several channels run 1/2 hour long “ads” for the EPA and “Green” Party, disguised as “cartoons” (one even had an episode today about humans saving dinosaurs from being hunted to extinction).

No more escapism fun.

But–it gets even better. The Global Warming hysteria has reached new lows with an ad that debuted in March, 2006 and which gained prominence in conjunction with CBS’ propaganda realism show, “Kid Nation”.

This is from the AdCouncil and is called “Tick”.

Global Warming. It may seem like an impossible problem: The Arctic ice is melting, storms are becoming fiercer, the resulting climate change is upsetting invaluable ecosystems, and the pollution is damaging our health.


But there is still time. Reversing the trend of global warming trend is possible and depends not only on the efforts of environmental scientists and researchers, governments of all nations, and leaders of business and industry, but just as importantly, it depends on the daily habits of regular people.


It is these regular people that this campaign hopes to inspire. The PSAs take a powerful, emotional approach to reach Americans with the message that global warming is an urgent problem that requires their immediate action.


The PSAs drive audiences to the website www.fightglobalwarming.com. The site provides information on the the causes, science, and consequences of global warming. A large part of the site focuses on what every person can do to reduce their energy consumption and therefore do their part to help slow and reverse global warming.


The campaign launched in March 2006.

Here’s the ad:

Tick

Can we please, PLEASE have a reality check here? We have a whole generation being indoctrinated to the Global Warning agenda without any facts being given to them. And propaganda it indeed is.

Does anyone know how to do ANY research for themselves any more? Or is this entire generation further proof of the sheeple in Congress, offspring of the those infected with the disease called “Liberalism”? Are they that anxious to throw their money after lies–and the high priest of the global warming liars, the Goracle himself?

Wake UP people–this is nothing but sham snake oil, smoke and mirrors masquerading as real science. And you liberal sheeple are total idiots, throwing your money after those hypocrites profiting from it, begging them to take your money and walk all over you.

Are you so desperate you actually want a nanny-state? Like the laws being proposed in California where the GOVERNMENT controls your thermostat by remote control or what activity you can or can’t engage in while in your own home (dammit, if I want to SMOKE in my house, who is the government to tell me I can’t? If I want FRIED onion rings who is the government to tell me I can’t have them? Who is the government to tell me what kind of condoms to use based on their “Green” rating?)?

You liberals dare, DARE to accuse conservatives of being Orwellian, but here’s a newsflash for you: it’s NOT conservatives proposing this idiocy and it’s NOT conservatives buying into the hype. It’s NOT conservatives telling you how to live your lives.

It’s liberals–and, as Michael Savage says, “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder”.

How true. Too bad liberals are too stupid following their fellow sheeple over the cliff and saying “control us, control us” to the government to realize their own stupidity and mental illness.

Get help, people. Really–you need it desperately.

So, Now I Am A War Criminal?

~Snooper~

This moron just pissed off 95% of the military, thank you very much. If…IF…we are War Criminals, is it really a good idea to piss off heavily armed “criminals”. Just sayin’.

Not too long ago, the US wasn’t winning because the tribal peoples of Iraq were doing all the fighting of AQI. Now, since that tactic bombed out, the breaking out of peace all over Iraq is due to us involved in Ethnic Cleansing.

I really do wish these morons would make up my mind.

As a member of Vets For Freedom, I stand with my Brothers and Sisters in uniform…and out…to annihilate this idiot.

Vets For Freedom has released the following statement:

“Sure there’s less violence, but that’s because we’ve ethnically cleansed most of Baghdad” – Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA)

(Washington, DC) Vets for Freedom condemns the recent comments by Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) on the floor of the House of Representatives in which he stated that American troops “ethnically cleansed Baghdad.” The United Nations, along with the rest of the civilized world, commonly refers to ethnic cleansing as genocide.

“Once again, Congressman Moran demonstrates how far from reality he has fallen,” said Executive Director of Vets for Freedom and Iraq Army veteran, Pete Hegseth. “Jim Moran has a long history of putting his foot in his mouth, but this time he has gone too far. The men and women who make up our nation’s military are decent and honorable citizens who bravely serve to fight our enemies who threaten our national security. Insinuating that they are war criminals is outright despicable.”

He continued, “I call on all Members of Congress to follow Vets for Freedom in our condemnation of these irresponsible accusations, as well as on the constituents of the 8th District of Virginia to stand up to such nonsense and support the men and women whose very sacrifice allows Moran to run his mouth.”

Vets for Freedom is a nonpartisan organization established by combat veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Your days are numbered dirt ball. I sure so strongly desire to place my real thoughts here but, I have repacked my Go Bag instead.

So, Now I Am A War Criminal?

~Snooper~

This moron just pissed off 95% of the military, thank you very much. If…IF…we are War Criminals, is it really a good idea to piss off heavily armed “criminals”. Just sayin’.

Not too long ago, the US wasn’t winning because the tribal peoples of Iraq were doing all the fighting of AQI. Now, since that tactic bombed out, the breaking out of peace all over Iraq is due to us involved in Ethnic Cleansing.

I really do wish these morons would make up my mind.

As a member of Vets For Freedom, I stand with my Brothers and Sisters in uniform…and out…to annihilate this idiot.

Vets For Freedom has released the following statement:

“Sure there’s less violence, but that’s because we’ve ethnically cleansed most of Baghdad” – Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA)

(Washington, DC) Vets for Freedom condemns the recent comments by Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) on the floor of the House of Representatives in which he stated that American troops “ethnically cleansed Baghdad.” The United Nations, along with the rest of the civilized world, commonly refers to ethnic cleansing as genocide.

“Once again, Congressman Moran demonstrates how far from reality he has fallen,” said Executive Director of Vets for Freedom and Iraq Army veteran, Pete Hegseth. “Jim Moran has a long history of putting his foot in his mouth, but this time he has gone too far. The men and women who make up our nation’s military are decent and honorable citizens who bravely serve to fight our enemies who threaten our national security. Insinuating that they are war criminals is outright despicable.”

He continued, “I call on all Members of Congress to follow Vets for Freedom in our condemnation of these irresponsible accusations, as well as on the constituents of the 8th District of Virginia to stand up to such nonsense and support the men and women whose very sacrifice allows Moran to run his mouth.”

Vets for Freedom is a nonpartisan organization established by combat veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Its mission is to educate the American public about the importance of achieving success in these conflicts by applying our first-hand knowledge to issues of American military strategy.

Lieberman, Iran, Roll call and the Liberals are losing it

Cross Posted from Wake up America

Just caught this on the news while I was cooking, sooooooo, of course I had to run upstairs and do a quickie.

Joe Lieberman along with McCain, Kyl, Graham, and Coleman, offered up an amendment to the Defense Authorization Act, confronting the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran over its proxy attacks on American soldiers in Iraq, and it passed with a vote of 97-0.

Roll call can be found here.

Statement of purpose: To require a report on support provided by the Government of Iran for attacks against coalition forces in Iraq.

Liebermans statement from his site (linked above)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senators Lieberman, McCain, Kyl, Graham, and Coleman today introduced a bipartisan amendment to the Defense Authorization Act, confronting the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran over its proxy attacks on American soldiers in Iraq.

The amendment details the publicly available evidence put forward over the past year by General David Petraeus, commanding general of Multi-National Force Iraq, and others about Iran’s violent and destabilizing activities in Iraq.

The amendment states that “the murder of members of the United States Armed Forces by a foreign government or its agents is an intolerable act of hostility against the United States,” and demands the government of Iran “take immediate action” to end all forms of support it is providing to Iraqi militias and insurgents. The amendment also mandates a regular report on Iran’s anti-coalition activity in Iraq.

“For many months, our military commanders and diplomats have warned us that the Iranian government has been training, equipping, arming, and funding proxies in Iraq who are murdering our troops,” said Senator Lieberman. “This amendment is a common sense, common ground statement of the Senate to Tehran: we know what you are doing, and you must stop.”

“American officials attest that the government in Teheran seeks to bleed the United States and render unsuccessful our efforts to bring about a stable and self-governing in Iraq,” said Senator McCain. “This amendment will send a clear signal: Iran’s activities in Iraq are wrong, and they must end immediately.”

“The Iranians are attempting to thwart our policies in the Middle East by actively supporting terrorists who are killing our troops in Iraq,” said Senator Kyl. “It is time we acknowledge this hostility against us, and this amendment tells the Iranians we will not tolerate any actions which threaten our troops or allies.”

“The evidence is increasingly clear the Iranian government is working to destabilize the Iraqi government,” said Senator Graham. “It is long past time for Congress to speak out about this destructive behavior by Iran. We need one voice, and I expect it will be a unified bipartisan voice, speaking out and condemning these actions by the Iranian government.”

“The United States will not tolerate Iran’s hostile attempts to sabotage our efforts in the Middle East region,” said Senator Coleman. “On my last trip to Iraq, our Minnesota troops in Southern Iraq showed me Iranian-made explosives that were used against them on convoy missions. This crucial amendment makes it clear to the Iranian government, and any other government in the region that seeks to harm our soldiers, that providing any form of support to Iraqi insurgents will not be tolerated and must cease immediately.”

The text of the actual amendment should be here, when they actually get it up on the site. (That link will be changed if it ends up being put up at a different URL)

Needless to say, the far left liberals do not even need to see the actual text, they are already throwing a hissy fit, here is an example of some of the comments coming from Firedoglake:

Cr*p.

We’re going to have to lose the Democrats in Congress, all of them, because they’re too f*cking stupid something to figure out what’s going on without someone reading the bills to them very slowly, and explaining all the words to them as they go along.

We’ll need a new party name, too, because they’ve done to ‘Democratic’ what the GOoPers have done to ‘Republican’: turned it into a joke of an brand for a product that should be named ‘Acme’.

How can they claim to be representing us, when they can’t even read the bill and figure out where it’s going, before they vote on it, and they don’t listen to us, when we tell them what we’re seeing and hearing out here in the real world?

This next one is good too:

h.con.r.21 background here, here, and here.

lots of good stuff in the links.

bottom line – virtually the entire house of representatives (only 2 “no” votes – kucinich and paul) voted to ask the UN security council to charge ahmadinejad with “violating the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and United Nations Charter” based on basically his calling for the genocide of israelis and because “Iran has aggressively pursued a clandestine effort to arm itself with nuclear weapons”.

only problem is that the first is a lie (mistranslations) and there is not evidence for the second (see IAEA).

when kucinich tried to enter into the congressional record the correct translation, he was prevented from doing so.

so, now we have a document that bush can point to (after bombing iran) and say – “see, even the dems know that the iranian leader is a genocidal maniac pursuing nuclear weapons.”

how could my D congress critters be so dumb?

That is representative of what I am seeing on the liberal blogs right now and I am sure more will come.

There has been ample evidence that Iran is directly responsible for killing U.S. Soldiers, which is why this bill passed with not a single vote against the amendment, but the liberals cannot see passed their hatred to understand this.

More to come as reactions come in, which I assure you, they will.

[Update] 7/12/07- Iran will have crossed the “nuclear threshold” by 2009.
