Organizing for Revolution: The Final ‘Push’ To Transform America

“A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.” ~ Mao

We are currently in the midst of a battle for the heart and soul of America. This war is being waged at our schools, the workplace and in our communities. States struggling to moderate impossible debt and balance budgets are examining ways to free themselves from the fiscal and political shackles imposed by labor unions whose exorbitant pensions and benefits comprise the bulk of their debt. With the economy tanking and the fight over public union benefits and collective bargaining spreading across the United States, a totalitarian minority recognizes this as their make-or-break moment – their time to seize control of the social and economic environment by force rather than individual choice.

Hiding behind the labels of progressive, labor and social justice, this totalitarian minority is intrinsically linked with Communist, Socialist and Marxist ideologies. Their goal is to dismantle the foundations of our government and force the revolutionary transformation of America into their worldview. The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), whose membership parallels the Congressional Progressive Caucus roster, describe their objective,

“To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy.” [Sound familiar?]

To accomplish their goal Socialists infiltrated leftist organizarions to the highest levels of leadership. The U.S. labor movement has a strong history of Socialist leadership but in recent decades members of the DSA gained control of the largest U.S. labor unions, AFCSME, SEIU and the AFL-CIO, creating a resurgence of militant communist/socialist views among their ranks. AFL-CIO Chief Richard Trumka recently admitted his main goal is using unions to fundamentally change America into his progressive vision.

The enemy is within and poised to destroy America. While speaking this past weekend in a closed session at the 2011 Left Forum, an annual gathering of Marxists and hard-left radicals that included Barbara Ehrenreich, Cornel West, and Frances Fox Piven, former SEIU banking and finance director Stephen Lerner detailed the Left’s secret plan to “destabilize” the country. The full length video below reveals the depths to which the left are willing to go to seize control over the American economy. [H/T to The Blaze and Business Insider.]

“There are actually extraordinary things we could do right now to start to destabilize the folks that are in power and start to rebuild a movement….

“For example, 10% of homeowners are underwater, right? Their home, they are paying more for it then its worth. 10% of those people are in strategic default, meaning they are refusing to pay but they are staying in their home. That’s totally spontaneous. They figured out [that] it takes a year to kick me out of my home because foreclosure is backed up.

“If you could double that number you would you could put banks at the edge of insolvency again.

“Students have a trillion dollar debt.

“We have an entire economy that is built on debt and banks so the question would be what would happen if we organized homeowners in mass to do a mortgage strike if we get half a million people to agree it would literally cause a new finical crisis for the banks not for us we would be doing quite well we wouldn’t be paying anything…

“We have to think much more creatively. The key thing… What does the other side fear the most – they fear disruption. They fear uncertainty. Every article about Europe says when they rioted in Greece the markets went down. “The folks that control this country care about one thing – how the stock market goes, what the bond market does, how the bonuses goes. We have a very simple strategy:

  • How do we bring down the stock market
  • How do we bring down their bonuses
  • How do we interfere with there ability to be rich…

“We are going to look at a week of civil disobedience – direct action all over [New York] city. Then roll into the JP Morgan shareholder meeting which they moved out of New York because I guess they were afraid because of Columbus.

“There is going to be a ten state mobilization to try and shut down that meeting and then looking at bank shareholder meetings around the country and try and create some moments like Madison except where we are on offense instead of defense.

“Where we have brave and heroic battles challenging the power of the giant corporations. We hope to inspire a much bigger movement about redistributing wealth and power in the country and that labor can’t do itself, that community groups can’t do themselves, but maybe we can work something new and different that can be brave enough and daring and nimble enough to do that kind of thing.”

Did you hear that? The radical Left is plotting to create socioeconomic chaos to build political momentum to push their revolutionary transformation. As U.S debt nears the tipping point of insolvency, they intend to strike at the heart of American capitalism by nationally expanding the agitation that triggered Wisconsin’s M&I Bank to shut down to avert a run on the bank after union firemen withdrew $192,000 in protest of the bank not succumbing to union demands to publicly oppose Gov. Scott Walker’s budget relief bill.

In other words, to force their will on the American people the Left is conspiring to commit extortion and economic terrorism by destroying the cash flow of banks nationwide in order to collapse of the financial system. If similar comments were said at a closed door Tea Party meeting, the speaker would be investigated as a threat to Homeland Security. Where are Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano? I hear crickets.

It is not the gaining of power that is important, it is the KEEPING of power.” ~ Vladmir Lenin

The effect of obtaining power over others is stronger than any drug. Through decades of strikes, riots, protests and collective bargaining agreements organized labor gained immense power over taxpayers. Under President Obama, the White House is forcibly strengthening and allocating economic power to the unions. The Heritage Foundation Morning Bell notes the President threw “the full weight of the White House, the Democratic National Committee, and his own Organizing for America operation” behind the union protests in Wisconsin. Events that resulted in vandalism, death threats, and brazen acts of blatant intimidation.

In the history of America, Socialists have never been as close to controlling the “commanding heights” as they’ve attained in the last two years. And they are not going to accept a peaceful reduction of their power or meekly submit to the rule of law and the will of the people. In the aftermath of the showdown in Wisconsin the Left is building a resurgence of militant activism to recreate their days of rage on a national scale. Issuing the call to “escalate protests” modeled on the Wisconsin demonstrations are none other than Marxists Frances Fox Piven and Cornel West, attending strategists to the Left Forum.

Piven, whose decades of writings outline a strategy for radical revolution, is a strong advocate for the dismantling of capitalism and the transformation of America’s constitutional republic into a socialist state. Promoting social and economic change through the exploitation of misfortune and national crisis, she champions the use of violence and Labor as the means to achieving the idea of socialist revolutionary transformation.

“For a century and a half progressives, socialists and social democrats have relied on labor power – the idea of labor, the reality of labor – as really the pragmatic aspect of their theory. It was labor power that would create the force to realize both the social democratic agenda of governmental reforms and the socialist agenda of revolutionary transformation.”

In the December 2010 issue of The Nation, Piven openly called for the violent revolution in America she now orchestrates.

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs?…

“Local protests have to accumulate and spread — and become more disruptive — to create serious pressures on national politicians. An effective movement of the unemployed will have to look something like the strikes and riots that have spread across Greece in response to the austerity measures forced on the Greek government by the European Union, or like the student protests that recently spread with lightning speed across England in response to the prospect of greatly increased school fees. We should hope for another American social movement from the bottom — and then join it.”

West, a militant activist and proponent of black liberation theology, sees the American dream as a menace to actual American democracy” and believes, “Marxist thought is an indispensable tradition for freedom fighters.” A frequent Featured Speaker at Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDS) conferences, West also appeared this past weekend at the 2011 YDS conference entitled “Their Crisis, Our Pain: The Democratic Socialist Response to the Great Recession.” This years topics echo the activist agenda being promoted widely by the Left to trigger the collapse of American capitalism.

Fueling the Revolution

Marxism always requires victims to fuel the revolution. School children and college students are unwittingly indoctrinated into leftist ideology, becoming the Left’s fuel to fire their revolution. By aligning students with public employee unions the Left seeks to build an effective weapon to use against taxpayers and ideological opponents.

To spread their message and achieve organized domestic disruption in America “in the days, weeks and months ahead” Piven, West and their Marxist associates are partnering with a wide range of labor, feme-marxist and student activist groups: the AFL-CIO, SEIU, American Rights at Work, Student Labor Action Project (SLAP), United States Students Association (USSA), United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS), the Professional Staff Congress (an affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers), NOW, and a wide assortment of communist and socialist groups.

The objective is a multi-pronged attack to undermine America’s democratic process and its financial and economic stability using class and race warfare to agitate the Left’s useful idiots. They’re leveraging existing progressive efforts to galvanize the poor, unemployed, students, teachers, and union workers to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force thereby generating the appearance of “widespread crisis” across the nation.

Beginning April 4th the AFL-CIO is planning a series of nationwide events encouraging local unions across the country to “stage shows of force.” Expecting to capitalize on the racial divisions fostered by the Obama administration, unions are instructing activists to “tie the Wisconsin issue to civil rights and Martin Luther King’s assassination” during their protests. Byron York, in the Washington Examiner, notes,

“Whatever events take place on April 4, look for the effort to have the enthusiastic support of the Obama administration.

“‘Union rights are no different than civil rights,’ Labor Secretary Hilda Solis told officials of the Communications Workers of America during a Wisconsin strategy conference call two weeks ago. ‘It’s a part of our history, it’s a part of our culture, it’s a part of what has made this country so great.’ “

April 5th, Piven and West will host a live web stream, a “National Teach-In on Debt, Austerity and How People Are Fighting Back” with “nationally-known social justice experts and activists.” Preying on students trapped in classrooms with leftist activists, the duo will indoctrinate students on how to generate “widespread crisis” and “sacrifice the many for the few.” Students and teachers are asked to escalate protests modeled on the Wisconsin rallies by identifying,

“Local actions and organizing efforts around student debt, home foreclosures, predatory lending and other destructive actions by banks, increases in college tuition, the Dream Act, cuts in public services, day care cutbacks, teacher lay-offs, attacks on unions, etc.”

As noted above, the first week in May the SEIU plans a widespread assault with the objective to destabilize the financial system and crash the stock market. Their attack targets the same domestic and banking institutions included in Piven and West’s April attack. The Left is coordinating the annihilation of our American capitalist economy so they can implement their version of a Marxist society. This is nothing short of treason.

We are seeing a dangerous pattern unfolding. Violence, vandalism, intimidation, extortion and economic terrorism are not acceptable tactics in America, but this is the Left’s self-defined “new era in protest politics.” If Wisconsin serves as the template for the Left’s plans for America expect the rule of law to be dismissed, the majority forced to suffer the consequences of the Left’s voracious greed and thirst for power and the vandalism, violence, and intimidation accompanying Obama’s New Tone of Civility to be coming to a state near you soon. The battle for the heart and soul of America has begun.
