Well, it seems with the Electoral College finally giving Donald Trump the votes he needed to validate his election we may have (and I say “may have”) put some of the election vitriol behind us (for now). Do I think the cultural Marxists will leave this alone? Not on your life! They seem to have lost some ground here so they will probably be forced to change their tactics–and some of the following may indicate one direction they will be going in.
There was an article in USA Today for December 21, 2016. written by a Maria Puente that may well note the cultural Marxist direction in upcoming months. The article is about the KKK. It seems that the A & E Network plans to do a series on the KKK as “America’s most infamous hate group.” According to Puente: “The network announced Monday the first of eight hour-long episodes of a ‘compelling’ documentary, Generation KKK, will begin airing Jan. 10 (10 p.m. ET). Why now? Becaulse hate groups are trending.” So who says they are trending? Keep reading folks and you will note some of the “usual suspects.”
Puente then eases herself into neo-Nazi groups and the “alt-right” white nationalist organizations and how these groups were given “the oxygen of attention” by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Because of that she presumably lost to Trump “who embraced some alt-right voices and won.” Begin to see the direction here? KKK equals alt-righlt equals Donald Trump, who won the election because of his association with “hate groups.” She does everything but state it outright, but she comes close enough so you get the idea.
But this is not something new or recent. It turns out that A & E has been working on this series on the Klan for over eighteen month and this series will supposedly look at new Klan “recruiting efforts targeting families and ‘indoctrinating children’.” Almost sounds as if the Klan has been taking lessons from the public school system!
Puente claims that Klan membership is “on the rise” and for evidence she cites that bastion of totally unbiased and objective “research”–the Southern Poverty Law Center, to buttress her profound revelation! For those who realize what is going on in this country, you don’t really need to read any further. You and I know exactly where thlis is all headed.
However, it seems that A & E is not alone. A “senior fellow” at the SPLC, Mark Potok, (anyone remember him? –he’s one of the “usual suspects”) claims that “There’s a plethora, a remarkable number of documentaries in production and efforts in various TV venues to portray the extreme right. I’ve been here nearly 20 years and I’ve never seen such a rash of these things.” So it would seem that everybody and his second cousin in the Mainstream Media is about to jump in and savage the alt-right, which is, after all, siphoning off a lot of readers and viewers from the MSM. And why not??? The MSM have proven over the years that they flat out lie to us, that they are nothing but journalistic prostitutes–little more than water carriers for the Leftists. So why should anyone listen to them anymore?
Part 2: A Slightly Revised Onslaught Of Cultural Marxist Drivel
Regarding what we still mistakenly call “journalists” we are forced to admit that they long ago abdicated their positions as responsible journalists and willingly prostituted themselves for the Ruling Establishment and its leftist cronies. They have no credibility left, which they have a hard time admitting, so they seek to denigrate their adversaries while covering themselves with journalistic fig leaves. Who in his right mind still watches the “Communist News Network” or the “Communist Broadcasting System” and expects any truth? Only the “useful idiots!”At any rate, Mark Potok claims the phones at the SPLC have been ringing off the hook with folks concerned about the “radical right” who are, if you read between the lines, all Trump supporters. Anyone who knows the history of the SPLC realizes that a big part of their agenda–a big part–is painting anyone who is politically to the right of Hillary Clinton as a “hate group.” And it doesn’t make any difference if it’s just one person or a large group. If you dare to disagree with the leftist agenda for this country then you are a “hate group” period! End of discussion!
Interestingly enough, according to Pastor Chuck Baldwin, writing in http://www.NewsWithViews.com back in February of 2013, the Southern Poverty Law Center…”has long been used by the federal government and the national press corps to paint conservative organizations as ‘extremists,’ ‘anti-government,’ ‘hate groups,’ etc. No sooner would the SPLC issue some attack piece in their newsletter and police agencies all over the country would be issuing bulletins to their officers regurgitating what the SPLC had just spewed out. No private organization has this kind of connection to, and influence over, police agencies nationwide without collaboration with the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.”
And Pastor Baldwin pointed in that article to a report by Judicial Watch “confirming that the DOJ and the SPLC are intricately tied at the hip.”
That being the case, this gives you some idea of where Puente’s commentary in this article is headed and where the cultural Marxist agenda is going to be headed in the next year or so. So if you folks here in the South thought that because the weather got a little cooler of late that the culture war was over, baby, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! So don’t just sit and watch, get ready to resist–because they are about to ramp up their efforts to totally destroy our culture and heritage along with that of any patriotic Americans out there that may still be left.
But all, fortunately, has not gone well for the left. I just got word today that the A & E KKK project had been cancelled. It seem that some of those who were to be participants in the project had been paid to do so, which was supposed to be a no-no. There were also allusions that there was a bit of a backlash to this project. I’d be willing to give that explanation more credibility than the one about them being paid. It may well be that enough folks out there are just plain fed up and disgusted with being labeled as “racist” rednecks and “deplorables” because they didn’t have the good sense to vote for Comrade Hillary that they are starting to fight back. If so, that’s all to the good. The drivel the cultural Marxists have been throwing at us for decades now needs to be repudiated and exposed for just what it is–an eight-letter word you don’t say in polite company!
I just got another communication today from the Dixie Heritage Newsletter that mentioned that membership in the KKK is believed to be, nationwide, only about 5,000. And the communication said: “The Democrats really need these guys. Somehow they’ve got to get those numbers up.” In other words, the cultural Marxists need the KKK out there to run interference for them in the streets while they try to scare ordinary folks to death. And one of the articles I read about all this had a big photo of a KKK member, hood, robe, and all, holding a big United States flag. No Confederate flags in sight! That one seems to have slipped by the censors. I’m sure the guy that took that one has by now been informed he’d better not make that mistake again.
Psalm 97:10 says, in part, “Ye that love the Lord, hate evil:” and let’s not kid ourselves. The people that are pushing this cultural Marxist drivel, whatever way they promote it, ARE evil! Understand, I have no use for the KKK. I think they have done a lot of harm, particularly to our Southern heritage. And it is rank injustice to play the “guilt by association” game with everyone on the right by trying to tie them in, somehow, to all the “hate groups” the SPLC claims are out there. Of course, if the SPLC can scare enough people into contributing to their supposed efforts to “combat hate” then that’s cash in their coffers, even if KKK membership is way down–and that’s part of the game, too.
Murray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”
This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.
The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.
As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.
However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.
The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.
The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.
