Skip to comments.BLM, Antifa and the Communist Strategy to Destroy the United States
Posted on 09/24/2020 7:00:15 AM PDT by SJackson
Todays woke violence - yesterdays red tactics.
The unprecedented violence perpetrated by Antifa and Black Lives Matter embodies two of the Left's biggest tactics in its quest to fundamentally transform the United States.
One is to force a race war by radicalizing African-Americans to a violent degree. The other involves making mayhem more intimidating by spreading police and firefighters as thinly as possible, thereby limiting their ability to respond quickly.
Manning Johnson, an African-American, spoke about the first tactic from personal experience. Describing himself as a "dedicated 'comrade' " and a "professional revolutionist," Johnson belonged to the Communist Party USA for 10 years. He served as a union organizer, director of agitation propaganda, and a member of the party's national committee. Johnson even ran as the party's candidate for a Congressional seat in New York.
But when the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany concluded their non-aggression pact in 1939 -- nine days before Germany invaded Poland and began World War II -- Johnson left the party. Following the war, Johnson testified about Communist activities to various legislative committees. In 1958, one year before his death, Johnson wrote about his experiences in Color, Communism and Common Sense.
Why did Johnson become a Communist at 21?
"Like other Negroes, I experienced and saw many injustices and inequities around me based upon color, not ability," he wrote. "I was told that 'the decadent capitalist system is responsible,' that 'mass pressure' could force concessions but 'that just prolongs the life of capitalism;' that I must unite and work with all those who more or less agree that capitalism must go.
"To me, the end of capitalism would mark the beginning of an interminable period of plenty, peace, prosperity and universal comradeship. All racial and class differences and conflicts would end forever after the liquidation of the capitalists, their government and their supporters. A world union of Soviet States under the hegemony of Russia would free and lead mankind on to Utopia.
"Being an idealist, I was sold this 'bill of goods' by a Negro graduate of the Lenin Institute in Moscow."
That graduate probably was Harry Haywood, who joined the Communist Party in 1925 and studied in Moscow soon afterwards. Johnson credited Haywood with playing a major role in convincing Stalin to incorporate blacks into the American Communist leadership during the Communist International's 1928 meeting in Moscow.
"Stirring up race and class conflict is the basis of all discussion of the Communist Partys work," Johnson wrote. "The evil genius, Stalin, and the other megalomaniac leaders in Moscow ordered the use of all racial, economic and social differences, no matter how small or insignificant, to start local fires of discontent, conflict and revolt.
"Black rebellion was what Moscow wanted. Bloody racial conflict would split America. During the confusion, demoralization and panic would set in."
Johnson's own training reflected that strategy. Once he joined the party, Johnson received "two years of practical training in organizing street demonstrations, inciting mob violence, how to fight the police and how to politically 'throw a brick and hide,'" he wrote. Johnson then attended a school where he studied "red political warfare," he wrote, in which he "learned to use secret codes, 'mail drops,' organize clandestine meetings, 'shake police shadows'" and grasped "the nature of communist sabotage and espionage."
Compare Johnson's descriptions with BLM's activities, beyond the obvious similarities of arson, looting, assault, harassment -- even murder.
"We actually have an ideological frame," co-founder Patrisse Cullors told a left-wing podcast. "Myself and Alicia in particular, we're trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on ideological theories."
Cullors studied under Eric Mann, a left-wing organizer who worked with the Black Panthers and the Weather Underground in the 1960s. "Alicia" is fellow co-founder Alicia Garza, who also created the Black Futures Lab, a BLM subsidiary that organizes African-Americans and develops policies. The Black Futures Lab, states its website, "is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association."
The CPA dedicates itself to promoting the interests of China's government and Communist Party in the United States, which include Marxist revolution.
As an organization led by "trained Marxists," BLM also opposes capitalism, the nuclear family and religion, especially Christianity. BLM agitators burned Bibles in Portland, Ore. and chanted "(Fornicate) your Jesus!" at a black street preacher in Charlotte, N.C.
Regarding the family, BLM stated its position before deleting it from its website:
"We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and 'villages' that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable."
That position not only restates Karl Marx's demand to end the nuclear family. It alludes to the alternatives Leon Trotsky advocated.
"Abolition of the family!" Marx wrote. "On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family, based? On capital, on private gain. In its completely developed form, this family exists only among the bourgeoisie."
Trotsky proposed "a finished system of social care and accommodation: maternity houses, crèches, kindergartens, schools, social dining rooms, social laundries, first-aid stations, hospitals, sanatoria, athletic organizations, moving-picture theaters, etc." that would bind "all generations in solidarity and mutual aid," he wrote.
Even the quest to defund the police embraces Marxist ideology. These words Mann wrote in 1999 express attitudes that are all-too-familiar to today's Americans:
The Black Panthers in particular argued that the prisons and police were colonial instruments, and thus bourgeois concepts of 'crime' or 'innocence and guilt' could not be used to justify the military occupation of an oppressed community. The demands to free all political prisoners including all black men and women were based on the assumption that the greatest danger to the black community was not black-on-black crime, but police-on-black crime. Armed self-defense groups, community patrols to monitor police behavior and the demands for the most stringent police review boards were efforts to structurally reduce police brutality by placing the police under black civilian authority.
The protesters in this video epitomize Mann's thinking. Their leader asks, "Who do we protect?" They respond, "Black criminals."
Garza succinctly summarized BLM's objectives and ideology at a left-wing conference in 2015:
"It's not possible for a world to emerge where black lives matter if it's under capitalism, and it's not possible to abolish capitalism without a struggle against national oppression and gender oppression."
BLM and Antifa would have found a kindred spirit in Robert Williams, a black activist in the mid-20th century. In the final third of his career, Williams embraced radical Marxism and history's worst political mass murderer, Mao Zedong. Williams' newspaper, The Crusader, advocated "an urban guerrilla war of self-defense" to foment revolution, he wrote in 1964.
Such a war, Williams wrote, would involve violent sabotage on a large-scale. Guerillas would derail trains and fire Molotov cocktails, acid bombs, hand grenades, machine guns, bazookas and rocket launchers from rooftops to kill law enforcement and make streets impassable. Kitchen matches placed in air-conditioning ducts would cause explosions that destroy buildings.
But perhaps Williams' favorite technique was arson.
"The most aggressive and irrepressible arm of the overall organization would be the fire teams," he wrote in 1965. "The mission of these thousands of active fire teams would be setting strategic fires. They could render America's cities and countryside impotent. The fire teams roving in automobiles would find unguarded rural objectives even more accessible. A few teams could start miles and miles of fires from one city to the other."
Such arson would have two goals. One would be to overwhelm first responders and the military.
"State forces would be forced to spread their ranks and would not be able to sustain massive troop concentrations in a single community," Williams wrote. "The heat and smoke generated from the fires would render some of the highways impassable to repressive troop reinforcements. The rural countryside covers vast areas and would require exhaustive man power, equipment and security forces."
The second goal would be to create mass terror.
"The psychological impact would be tremendous," Williams wrote. "By day the billowing smoke would be seen for miles. By night the entire sky would reflect reddish flames that would elicit panic and a feeling of impending doom."
Given Antifa's popularity in Oregon's largest city, some members might be implementing Williams' plan. Despite denials from law enforcement in Portland, numerous Oregonians recorded videos of arsonists caught in the act. One man arrested for arson in Washington even attended anti-police rallies.
Perhaps more incriminating is Antifa's message to its members: "Be water. Spread fire." A sheriff's deputy from Oregon's Clackamas County even connected Antifa to the state's wildfires. Those comments got him placed on leave.
Johnson's epitaph as a "professional revolutionist" resounds with even greater force today:
I saw Communism in all its naked cruelty, ruthlessness and utter contempt of Christian attributes and passions. And, too, I saw the low value placed upon human life, the total lack of respect for the dignity of man, the betrayal of trust, the terror of the Secret Police and the bloody hand of the assassin...
These trained rioters will not be deterred until there are consequences beyond arrest and release.

24 Sept: Australian Financial Review: Reuters: China pledge, Biden win would bring climate goals closer: scientists
by Laurie Goering
Democrat Joe Biden, who hopes to beat climate-change sceptic Donald Trump in November’s election, has promised to set a US goal for net-zero emissions by 2050, while China made a surprise vow this week to become “carbon-neutral” before 2060...
The European Union, meanwhile, has agreed to spend at least 30 per cent of its hefty coronavirus recovery stimulus on climate action as it advances towards its own net-zero goal, according to new analysis from research coalition Climate Action Tracker.
The three carbon-cutting targets, combined with pledges by smaller nations, would take the world 63 per cent of the way towards the emissions reductions needed to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, said Niklas Höhne of Germany’s NewClimate Institute.
“That’s a huge number and totally different to what we saw before,” Mr Höhne, a climate scientist and contributor to the tracker, told a New York Climate Week online panel.
If the US policy shift came through, on top of the EU and China commitments, “there’s real hope it can work”, he added...
Researchers said the brighter prospects for emissions cuts came despite disappointing progress on making COVID-19 recovery spending green, which is seen as key to driving climate action...

22 Sept: Reuters: Military-style Marshall Plan needed to combat climate change, says Prince Charles
By Matthew Green
LONDON - Climate change poses such a severe threat that the worlds only option is to adopt a military-style response reminiscent of the U.S. Marshall Plan to rebuild post-war Europe, Prince Charles said on Monday.
A long-time advocate for nature, the British royal said climate change was rapidly becoming a comprehensive catastrophe that will dwarf the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
At this late stage I can see no other way forward but to call for a Marshall-like plan for nature, people and planet, Charles said in a video recorded for the launch of a week of virtual climate change events in New York.
We must now put ourselves on a warlike footing, approaching our action from the perspective of a military-style campaign, he said.

19 Sept: NY Post: BlackRock intrudes on office romances
By Charles Gasparino
If you work for Larry Fink, he really wants to know whom youre hooking up with.
Fink, the voluble chief executive of BlackRock the worlds largest money manager recently updated his companys dating policy. In the past, employees were on notice to tell HR anytime they had a romantic relationship with another employee, an understandable but intrusive part of corporate life in the era of #MeToo.
But last week, Fink and his management team went overboard, with a policy that was euphemistically titled updated relationships at work.
Employees are required to disclose all Personal Relationships with other BlackRock employees or contingent workers; as well as Personal Relationships with employees of a service provider, vendor, or other third party (including a client), if the non-BlackRock employee is within a group that interacts with BlackRock, read a portion of the policy obtained by yours truly...
Consider: BlackRock employs more than 16,000 people worldwide...
***Fink, meanwhile, relishes his role as maybe the most woke chief executive in Corporate America, and has been angling, I am told, to become Treasury secretary if Joe Biden wins in November.
See his comments on corporate governance, climate change, actions hes taken in response to the recent civil unrest, and you might conclude that Finks real goal is getting his name on the dollar bill.

24 Sept: news.com.au: China comes out of COVID-19 absolutely laughing
An Aussie journalist who fled China says the difference between what you hear about COVID-19 there compared to elsewhere is almost unfathomable.
by Angie Raphael
A journalist who was recently forced to flee China on the advice of the Australian government says the country has come out of COVID-19 absolutely laughing.
Bill Birtles, who was the ABCs China correspondent in Beijing from 2015 until a few weeks ago, said it was a parallel world between what was being heard about COVID-19 there compared to elsewhere.
It is almost unfathomably different, he told a Lowy Institute webinar discussion about Australias fractured ties with China.
Everybody has kind of moved on from the whole Wuhan stuff-up in China ... the coverage has been shaped ... to a narrative controlled by the party.
On the ground, China has absolutely smashed COVID....
Mr Birtles said the government had almost eliminated domestic transmission among a population of 1.4 billion people, compared to countries like ***India, the US and Brazil, which was an extraordinary achievement.
He said the US also gave China a gift with its terrible handling of the virus, which had been absolutely exploited for all political gain domestically in China through the state media.
People who kind of say maybe this is Chinas Chernobyl or something, they really underestimate the many levers of political control, and media control, and information control that the party now has, he said.
I cant imagine a stronger position for the party to be in, except of course for the US trade war.
But certainly on COVID, theyve come out of it absolutely laughing....
“...These trained rioters will not be deterred until there are consequences beyond arrest and release....”
The business end of a gun is the only thing Marxists understand and respect. They care NOTHING about law & order, the Constitution or our nation. Right now, America has no stomach for it, or even a desire to fight at all, except for maybe one little 17-year old boy.
A nation can easily vote themselves into Marxism, but that nation has to literally fight its way out of it.
ya, but I wasn’t going to post about shooting rioters......
Go read Carlos the Jackal for his opinion of how to bring down the west. HE phrased and penned the thoughts of him and his peers
He acknowledged that Marxism by itself could not bring down the west , nor could islam; but an alliance, a coalition of the two could. Obama was both a marxist and a muslim... and a lying radical at that.

22 Sept: Bloomberg: EPA Leaders of the Past Endorse Biden, Denounce Trumps Impact

At an event Monday that was part of Climate Week New York, four prior EPA administrators (who served) under Republican and Democratic presidents endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, denounced Trumps approach to the agency, and said the upcoming election is critical for the environment...
Rebuilding scientific staff at the EPA will take years. We didnt just lose four year of the ability of career people to do their jobs, said (Carol) Browner, but those career people are being robbed of resources and support they need to do their work.

it’s all part of the attempted coup. don’t let them succeed.
24 Sept: Guardian: Kentuckys climate is suffering. Can the state slip the industry ties that prevent change?
