    Your Children Will Be Communists

    The following campaign clips from the 1964 Presidential election were as timely then as they are today.

    Goldwater warned that America was being heavily influenced by socialism and communism.

    What has changed?

    Fifty years ago we still had a chance to stop it. Today, we have a Congress plagued by socialists (from both sides of the aisle), and a President who, by all accounts, is an avowed socialist as evidenced by his rhetoric, actions and mentors throughout his university studies, and perhaps as his father was, a committed communist.

    We failed to heed Goldwater’s warnings for half a century:

    That’s the great trouble with big, inflationary government. It takes more and more of your earnings. It slowly but surely destroys individual initiative and responsibility. Government must draw its strength from the people, and as it drains away their strength it must inevitably undermine the foundations of self government.

    I ask you to join me in  helping to restore the individual freedoms and initiatives this nation once knew. To make government more the servant and not the master of us all. In this free nation, we do not choose to be ruled. We elect to be governed.

    We see violence in the streets in our cities and suburbs. Graft and corruption in the highest public offices to which we look for leadership. When scandal in local and national government has become so commonplace that many begin to consider it a way of life, then I say that we as a nation are not far from the kind of moral decay that has brought on the fall of other nations and people.

    The philosophy of something for nothing, the cult individual and government irresponsibility is an insidious cancer that will destroy us as a people unless we recognize it and root it out now.

    In a speech circa 1959 Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev said:

    We will bury you. Your children will be communists.

    And, followed up later:

    No, you won’t accept Communism outright; but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you.

    Khrushchev wasn’t exactly right. We buried ourselves, and destroyed our own economy because of, as Goldwater warned, our philosophy of something for nothing and our lack of responsibility as a nation and individuals.

    Look around. Socialism is here, and a large portion – perhaps a majority – of the American people willingly accept it.

    By accepting socialism, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, we may have very well sealed our fate.

    Communism is a stone’s throw away.

      This article is quite timely. I was watching Fox News this morning and they trotted out govt official after govt official and all sorts of elected trolls. All of them were so in awe with themselves over their “power” to “help” during the hurricane crisis. It almost seems as though they were enjoying it. Enjoying the power they have.

      They know full well that in a crisis or emergency, the sheeple turn to the government. It’s exactly how they want it and how it was designed.

      Is socialism here? Heck yes it is! And I hate it. I believe the 2012 election will slow it down or send it into hyper-drive.

      • The politicians know that to get elected they must present a centrist appearance but once in office they work to promote the socialist agenda. And the general public don’t really want to do any work before voteing. It has been in our schools for a couple of decades now. Go and talk to high school students and listen to what they say. They have been trained to think like socialists and many will tell you that there is nothing wrong with socialism.
        But there is very little difference between socialism and communism. Look at the governments who call themselves socialist vs communist. The level of governmental control of the people is the same but the public apperance is the only difference.

      May as well let Canada take us over. At least they know how to do it right. No crime, well educated populace, clean, modern, sophisticated, and down-to-earth with health-care for everyone. Economy is booming and their dollar is appreciating and worth more than ours. What is so wrong with all that? The problem with America comes down to the Constitution not being adhered to and no one has the balls to challenge the plutocracy. America is the home of the Coward and the land of the Sheep! It has the Titanic Syndrome, believing all the crap that we have been fed about how great we are… Yeah right!

          Anonymous, Anon makes a good point which I understand could be misread by some. He’s saying that if we’re going to be socialists at least do it right, Canada is better than Russia, and at least for now, before the third-world immigrants get a hold of Toronto and Vancouver, it’s population is educated and not inclined to petty or brutal crime like the third-worlders here in America.

          As of now, I agree with his analogy about the Land of the Sheep and the Home of the Coward. It’s true, no one now has the balls to show them how it’s done.

          As for Mr. Blutarsky, I agree come November 2012 and January 2013 the red tide will either be slowed with the election of Ron Paul or thrown into warp drive by continuation of the Obama regime or, failing that some other Bush-like-Israel-loving-Globalist-Police-State Republican.

      Finally, a topic more important than every other. The only good communist is a dead communist. Do you hear that, SPLC? Most Americans don’t have a clue about what their government has become (both parties). The entire Black Congressional Caucus are members of the Democratic Socialists of America (Communists). Other members of congress are also members. The best known one is Dennis Kucinich. The government is set to dedicate a huge monument to one of the most vile Marxists to have ever lived in the USA, MLK. Civil Rights were designed by communists to eliminate Individual Rights. If you look closely, you will notice every Civil Right is in direct conflict with an Individual Right. It was planned that way. Globalism and Communism go hand in hand. That is one of the reasons we lost any semblance of representation in Congress. Republicans are not real conservatives, they are Globalists. Democrats are both Marxists and Globalist. Neither party represents us. It’s too late for voting. Time has run out for the West. Turn your TV off. Better yet, take it to the range and give it what it deserves.

      Well, we all know the best thing that that rat bastard can do is nothing. Absolutely Nothing.

      However, if Bernanke chooses this time to do nothing and the economy improves then he loses the power to ever do not nothing, aka anything, ever again.

      ….So, he won’t, he’ll do something and that something is to make your dollars less and less valuable, and as far as I’m concerned that’s something awful.

          What’s funny is I can’t even buy foreclosures from the banks for cash. That’s how I know something’s F’ed up. For some reason only businessmen are allowed and they’re not to live in, they’re to rent out to section 8′ers.

          I’m sick of how, since age 14 I’ve saved 50% of every paycheck, done everything right by the book, and now more than a decade later am getting fucked by the PTB because the majority of America, and indeed the banks, were too irresponsible to buy/lend within their means.

          Can’t even get a reasonable loan for the rest of it for anything other than a rowhouse in Baltimore (aka city with the 3rd highest murder rate in the US) which I could buy up anyway. Farmland is out of reach and even a modest house on the edges of the burbs would be impossible without destroying my investments. The PTB have determined I don’t “make enough” when clearly I’ve been doing just fine of half, and most of what I get is untracable. Sad and F’ed up.

          But of course if I had several illegitimate children, or came across the border illegally, or had darker skin and/or no employment skills I’d be given a place for free.

      Communism will never take over the US. Why? Because the patriotic veterans,gunowners,conservatives,libertarians,and Constitutionalists will wage civil war before that happens. Last I check the commies do not own guns,the majority of the military are either conservative or libertarian and take their oath seriously.If communism comes it will face a harsh backlash ie civil war.

      If there was ever a communist uprising or revolution it will lead to a bloody civil war. The unfortunate thing is that many communist groups(Communist Party USA,Progressives,Brown Berets,Black Panthers) want a civil war. If it ever came to that it will be like the Colombian Conflict and the Spanish Civil War. The US military will never allow commies to take complete full power in government. The commies now have no power and want now a violent war with us to seize power. These asswipes better be careful what they wish for.

      Nonetheless Communism will never be accepted in the US. We just had a 50 year Cold War with communism which ended not too long ago. The fear of communism is still here and it will never take power in the US. And if they did the military will do a coup or we true patriots will have to form paramilitary militias to fight them back. Never underestimate the power we have. We have a bunch of support in the country and in the military.

          There is one institution that we have left. That is the military. Our military are filled with patriotic men and women. We have a bunch of support from them. We have MILLIONS of veterans and tens of millions of gun owners who will rise up in revolt! I am an optimist. I am a black male that goes to college and I see the communist dribble they try to push. However they will fail. There is more of us then of them. And just I have said the military will STOP the commies if they go to far. The progressives/communist have not controlled the military. In my English class two years ago there was a former marine in my class. We talked about military affairs,guns,cars,sports and women. One day we talked about politics before class. He was from Harrisburg,Pennsylvania. He was disgusted at Washington and disgusted they way the nation was going. He even told me many guys in the corp fell the same way. I asked him would he support gun confiscation. He said “Hell NO!,” he went on to say that he would not follow that order. That gave me hope and made me realize we have alot of support in high places. The military never talks politics but many hate the rhinos,the liberals and support the Liberty Movement.
          The military is too strong,too conservative,too loyal to the Constitution for the commies to control. They have tried and fail to do so.

          It will veterans,gunonwers,soldiers who will save this nation. However it will be a bloody fight,however in the end we will win. Most Americans despise Communism. We saw what happened to the USSR. It failed,so why would we want to emulate a failed system. The average American male may love football but he is a patriot and will fight communism and socialism. Yes the progressives have made headway but they really underestimate the power of our movement. An armed revolution will have to change things but it will be bloody and messy. Remember it will not be like 1776,it will be like the Spanish Civil war. We will win but it will be long and bloody.

A few media outlets tried to point out the connections to his dad’s ideology, to the church his “parents” raised him in, and his mentors in Hawaii. The public didn’t care.

        As if “the right” isn’t working to take your God, guns, and gold from you? Get the memo—the left-right paradigm is just an old trick of the rabbis redux. 16th century Rabbi Isaac Luria explained the ancient oral tradition of slowly moving the “pillar of severity” and the “pillar of mercy” so that the “middle pillar” eventually lands you exactly where they want you—”footstools.” Relentless and effective. How else do you think the synagogue of Satan (Apocalypse 3:9, “Revelation 3:9″ to you Protestants) continues to collude with their Father of Lies (John 8:44) to plow the ground for the anti-Christ? “Left-Right” and “Capitalism-Communism” are the tools that move you to ever-shifting “middle” that “the adversaries of all men” (1 Thess 2:15) define. Ever since the tribe’s private central banks gained influence, then control, what have we had? Perpetual war, genocide, usury, wage slavery, pornography, perversion, and the fragmentation (dividing and conquering) of Christianity and Christendom.

      Communists & Socialists want to help the commoners.

      Liberals want to try new things.
      Conservatives want to keep to the old ways.

        I would like to gently point out that Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Capitalism are not political systems, they are economic systems. Communism and Fascism are not interested in helping or protecting anyone other than those in the positions of power. They are interested in control and domination of all means of wealth production. Socialism is as close as one can get to “wanting” to “help” the commoners, but the system is highly susceptible to corruption by Communism and Fascism. It is also highly insulting to anyone who has it in their mind to make it on their own, implying that only a centralized control organization, such as a strong central government, can fairly and equitably produce the desired results. Capitalism, in todays world, has become synonomous with greed and big business wanting to take over the world. That’s unfortunate, in that capitalists are what built this country into the economic powerhouse it became. Government – in particular the Federal government – bastardized capitalism with its passion for regulatory control of industry, hence, fascist tendencies, working hard for the end zone.

        Liberals, under your definition, were the Founding Fathers and Conservatives were the Tories of the revolutionary period. Libertarians are committed to pure freedom and liberty for everyone, and with few exceptions, are exemplars of the design and dream of the Founding Fathers when they created the Constitutional Republic.

        Politics and lust for power and control over everyone’s life is what has ruined their concept and the American dream. Career politicians (liars, con artists, etc.) have corrupted what was once the greatest society the world has ever seen. That destruction began with the flagrant disregard for the Constitution and State’s rights under that Constitution back in 1861 and has snowballed from that point. The Civil War, War Between the States, War of Northern Aggression, or whatever you want to call it, was fought over money and business interests, not over slavery. Slavery was a by-product and a rallying call to gain sympathy and support for the Federal government, whose members were leaned on by northern industrialists to prevent southern cotton growers from sending their raw cotton to England or France for processing at a much cheaper rate than those being charged by the northern businesses.

        Every war in history has been based and fought on one of two things: economics, ie. money, and religion. I would challenge anyone to find me a war fought strictly over the politics of the nations involved.

          Absolutely true. All wars were fought for money and power. The South was paying 75% of all federal revenues even though they were smaller than the North. The straw that broke the camels back was called the Merrill Tariff, to be placed only on southern ports. Slavery had only been discussed once or twice in congress and that was about slavery in new territories. The governments use ideology to get the sheeple to fight for the politicians money and power.

      My kids went to private school part of the time (based on where we lived) and public school part of the time. They too will not be communists. If you talk to them continually at home you can counter-balance the BS they hear.

      However…once they leave you and go to college they are subject to all sorts of crap. For example, a local University here in my state recently had terrorist and communist Bill Ayers come and speak. The professors in the history dept (who sponsored him) forced their students to come watch him (assigned some mandatory paper based on it).

        MR B: The Socialists at ASU in the Humanities Dept many years ago, brought in a “Lefty” speaker to criticize the evils of nuclear energy. And of course, if we went and did a paper on the talk we would get extra credit, too.

        Sound familar?

        Actually, once in attendence his rant was against America’s Nuclear Deterent suggesting that peace would never come as long as the US was a nuclear power! :-)

        Public funds paid for this dribble and then, later, I noticed how the Department Head for Humanities was going to be attending a “conference” at the school the “Lefty” came from and presenting a paper; for which he too of course, would receive a fee. Paid for by California public funds of course.

        But the biggest crock of shit I ever saw was from a college professor (a woman active in democratic politics).

        In class she had the nerve to point out that Eisenhower had promised during his presidential run that he would go personally to Korea to assess the situation; suggesting that Ike was merely copying the actions of Harry Truman, some years before.

        I pointed out to her that Ike was a five star General, former Commander of All Allied Forces in Europe, and had successly executed the Normandy invasion. She didn’t like that much. :-)

        Then she had the gall to ask all of us to write a paper on Nixon’s overature to China. She instructed US to be sure that we detailed our papers with footnotes and that they had better be right.

        I entitled my paper: The Nixon Doctrine: Ping Pong Diplomacy.

      Kindergarten was invented by a German socialist named Froebel. Public schools were established for the purpose of indoctrination by an American socialist (Dewey?).

Pre-school was designed to get kids away from their parents at an even earlier age. Communism will never take over here? Really? In the mid 1800′s this country was flooded with socialists from Ireland, Sweden and Germany. They would be used to fight for the North in the Civil War.

      Dang! I was all worked up and ready to write some pathetic sarcastic drivel on the hurricane and Mac went and posted this. Now I have to turn on the other 3/4 of my brain and respond with (more or less) something serious.
      First- Hoot Owl, I have to respectfully disagree on a couple of your points. Commies and socialists don’t want to help anybody. That’s just what the theory says and it’s never been applied that way. Never will be. For socialism to truly work, as the theory promises, all aspects of the darker side of human nature would have to be overcome. That aint happening til Jesus returns, and he’s no socialist either. Besides, if we could perfect human nature, then capitalism would lose it’s only flaw (human greed) and we’d have our utopia. I’m not holding my breath for people, myself included, to behave in a totally selfless manner. I realize you weren’t promoting socialism, just stating an opinion about it.
      Mr Big has it right. The smallest government is the best. And his comments about education are correct, too. Kindergarten and pre school are just ways to get the spawn of the sheeple into the indoctrination system at the earliest stage. The little snot-nosed tykes are VERY programmable at that age. And Dewey (may he rot in hell) did more damage to America than most people realize.
      Socialism, communism, globalism, NWO and the rest are just sublte nuances of the same thing. The goal is to have total control of all people and all resources everywhere. The tyrants don’t yet have it all, but they have been making steady progress, including in America, for decades. Any nation that has trillions of dollars in debt, and that has tens of thousands of pages of laws on the books can hardly be called ‘free.’ And a nation that can not, or will not, sustain it’s own borders can not be considered ‘sovereign.’
      So, what do we do about all this? Is it even possible that we could return to freedom, and the level of personal responsibility that goes with it? I believe the answer is yes, we could be free again. But getting there won’t be easy, and we’d have to accept the fact that millions of our countrymen don’t want that. This includes some of our own friends and relatives. They know nothing about true freedom, and if they were to learn (highly unlikely) they’d be so scared of the part about personal responsibility that they would embrace, no they’d DEMAND, slavery instead.
      As far as the actual plan to save America- for now, I’ll leave that to my intellectual superiors here. I still have a bit of learning to do before I spring the Okie Manifest on you all!

      this article has incorrect information. I do speak russian and I can tell you that the translation of Nikita Khrushchev’s speech is inaccurate in this video, which shows that mr. B.Goldwater used false information, fear mongering for his presidential campaign. (I am not surprised)

      I can give you the translation of what Nikita said.
      First line, video translation: “We will bury you”
      Actual translation: “…be happy that we didn’t beat you at Stalingrad,Ukraine and Belarus…”

      Second line, video translation: “Your children will be communists”.

      Actual translation: “…[if you will go] against us and plan an attack again, we will show you…”

      This is just a translation of an excerpt, it is difficult to say who the speech was directed at, the full content of the speech and what caused such words, but you can see how misleading this video is. if you know someone who can speak russian, you can verify my translation.
