Politics and the Church – The Church and the Liberal / Progressive / Communist Threat [Part 11]

This week we will be exposed to some Communist goals that will probably come as no surprise as they are goals that are being pushed by liberal/progressive elements in today’s society.  Keep in mind that Communist leadership is persistent and counts ‘defeat’ only as a reason to take an alternative route to achieving their goals.  This is a threat that will be with us for a long, long time.  Our hope rest in God and our willingness to take up the fight with the same persistence the communists will.

#11  Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind, demand that it be set up as one-world government with its own independent armed forces.  The UN is described as a ‘second try’ for a new world order.  However, its multitude of treaties, programs and agendas that promote socialism and the dismantling of traditional Western values has discredited it as a unifying organization.  It seeks to centralize world power into a single body. In 2009, the UN introduced a call for ‘global democracy.  The following year a UN body urged support for a treaty that would regulate private military and security companies.  Other proclamations called for socialist/communist agenda items including national health care, acquiescence by all nations to a world court, subservience to the world’s collective will, and the institutionalization of a new moral structure superseding the people’s will.  At the center of the utopian dream is the necessary weakening of the United States as a world power.

#12  Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. The Supreme Court has thwarted attempts to outlaw the Communist Party.  In Yates v. United States (1957) the court determined that advocating subversive action against the United States was lawful under the First Amendment until it became an advocacy of immediate action to forcibly overthrow the US government.  In other words, people are free to organize and lecture and plot to overthrow the US government as long as they don’t try to do it.  That’s like someone being able to pour gasoline all along the outside of your home as long as they don’t light a match.  Of course, by then it is too late.

#13   Do away with all loyalty oaths.  This refers to Article 6 of the Constitution that requires government employees and elected leaders to be legally bound by personal oath of affirmation to uphold the law and the Constitution, and not engage in subversive activities or associate with groups that are subversive.  The Communists try to sell the taking of an oath as an infringement on free speech.  Oaths have been disappearing over time.  For example, in 1949 a push by Young Progressives demanded that college campuses abolish loyalty oaths taken by students joining the ROTC programs.  The reasoning, if oaths were allowed then that would constitute official endorsement by the host university, making such oaths equally binding to all students. [“YP Demands Abolition of NROTC Loyalty Oath”, The Harvard Crimson, Nov. 14, 1949].  In 1976, the US Civil Service Commission responded to numerous court actions by removing from job applications all questions about membership in the Communist party or revolutionary groups. [Loyalty Oath Abolished, Associated Press, September 9, 1976].   (Communist activity to destroy this nation is nothing new.  We can already see their attacks starting on the church.  This Covid virus was a golden opportunity for such activity.)

#14   Continue giving Russia access to the US Patent Office.  Preferred nation status provided access to the US Patent Office for both Russia and China.  For example, the MIT Radiation Laboratory series, 26 volumes, published in the period 1947-1950, gave all the world most of the results of US wartime research and development on radar.  The Smythe report of 1946 gave foreign scientists enough information to avoid ‘blind alleys’ and ‘fruitless’ pursuits in atomic research. There is positive evidence that the Soviets used information from this report to set up their own atomic research program. [Joseph Becker, Comparative Survey of Soviet and US Access to Published Information, CIA, written in 1994, posted at http://www.cia.gov on May 8, 2007].  International trade agreements are working to reduce theft of American innovation, but when it comes to ideas applicable to the military and electronic technology, there are not yet sufficient restrictions.  As with all ‘new world order’ type organizations, such groups can’t prevent an adversary from gaining valuable knowledge that could be used against the best interest of the US.

#15   Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.  This has been done indirectly through democratic socialists in both the Republican and Democratic parties who have used Congress, the White House, and the State Department to foster policies favorable to Communist countries at the expense of the security and the economic interests of the US and its allies.

#16   Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.  The Warren Court carried this to extreme in 1962.  It eliminated prayer in public schools, Bible reading in public schools, and the teaching of Judeo-Christian values in public schools.  Another example was that of ‘forced busing’.  It was loathed by the vast majority of both blacks and whites.  A Gallup poll in the early 1970’s found that only 4 percent of whites and 9 percent of blacks supported forced busing outside of their own neighborhoods. [Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education, 1971 and Milliken v. Bradley, 1974]. In 1972, an amendment to the 1964 Civil Rights Act called Title IX, forced schools receiving federal funds to provide equal opportunities for both sexes proportionate to the ratio of males and females on campus.  It was a disaster.  And today we are looking at girls teams that are being forced to admit ‘male’ athletes who think they are girls, and vice versa.  This includes locker rooms and showers.  Another target, the institution of marriage was turned into a civil right by the court in 2015 with its decision imposing the legalization of same-sex marriage on all states.

#17   Get control of the schools.  Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda.  Soften the curriculum.  Get control of teachers’ associations.  Put the party line in textbooks.  For example, painting Western culture, capitalism, and traditional American values as divisive, one-sided, greedy, racist, or old fashion is common place today.  They are being taught as ‘facts’.  The ‘softened curriculum’ is becoming more apparent.  In 2003, American 15-year-olds ranked among the lower half of all nations measured for math, reading and science literacy. [National Center for Education Statistics, Digest of Educational Statistics]. (The Covid virus was a grand opportunity to shut down schools putting many American students behind a year in their education.) Detracting from a solid education is a national addiction to fantasy worlds realistically created in color, sound, dimension and plot, via television, internet and video games.  The average American boy spends 13 hours a week on video games; girls only 5 hours.  By age 21, the average young American will have spent 10,000 hours playing video games…that’s double the time it takes to earn a 4-year university degree.  SAT scores have long been used to qualify students for college; the average scores have been falling for years.  Tied to that is an active effort to rewrite history.  Those cultures that were conquered, rejected or absorbed during America’s birthing period are being exalted as more virtuous and noble than America’s own.  Innovative thinkers in the Founding Generation are denigrated, including Founding Fathers, Christopher Columbus, and industrial giants.  The founders of America’s success formula must be disparaged and forgotten so that the eternal principles of natural law that led to liberty and prosperity may likewise be diminished.  Those seeking ultimate control over American lives must first create a detached and illiterate citizenry that is malleable to a false narrative and forgetfulness. 

     Next week we will continue on the 45 goals of Communism.  These are long-term goals and those who ferment them are patient.  They are willing to watch the foundations of this great nation slowly crumble.  I can only hope that our government…made up of pro-American politicians, and our churches…made up of God fearing, freedom loving citizens, is ready and willing to disappoint this Communist onslaught.  We must let God be our Commander-in-Chief and we the dedicated foot soldiers.
