Ole Miss Continues Its March Toward “Relevancy”

by Al Benson Jr.

It seems that many of these colleges and universities in the South today don’t really feel “relevant” anymore, or maybe the proper term might be “politically correct” or more properly yet “culturally Marxist.” Somehow, it seems, their leadership and faculties must labor to convince  the cultural Marxists out there that they really, sincerely, want to play their game, but they have to do it in such a way that it will not alert those who still cherish Southern culture as to their true intent.

Therefore, they take the classical Fabian socialist approach that they might attain their intended destruction of Southern culture incrementally, all the while assuring those that might send their kids to be “educated” in their Ivory Towers that they really do treasure Southern culture and heritage, but, for the sake of being relevant in today’s changing world, they must work at soft-peddling that heritage just a bit, lest some Black Panther or Muslim terrorist become “offended.” For them the “sin” of offending someone is more heinous than the sin of adultery, which they really don’t consider all that bad anymore.

Ole Miss has gone in this direction. In its infinite wisdom, their leadership has decided to completely trash its Southern heritage and cultural background (incrementally of course) while assuring potential enrollees that this is the last thing they want to do. It may be the last thing they want to get caught doing, but hardly the last thing they really want to do.

I’ve worked at two different colleges over the years, one in the East and the other in the Midwest and from what I could see from either one, they seemed to think their mission was to “fundamentally transform”  the students sent to them so that their parents would hardly recognize them when they returned home. I had one lady even tell me once, “Since our daughter came here I don’t even know her anymore.” And she wasn’t happy with that. I told her “I could get fired for saying this to you but if you want your daughter back, taker her out of this school.” I don’t know if she ever did, but I felt it was sound advice. The “fundamental transformation” I have seen with many of these college kids is, in many cases, far from positive.

And at Ole Miss, this seems to be the plan also. They started out banning Confederate battle flags at ball games. That took awhile because, at first, the kids kept showing up with them at games anyway, but the school leadership persisted, and the kids, not realizing their heritage was under subtle attack, eventually started leaving the flags back at the dorm. Then they changed the school mascot. Col. Reb just had to go! He “offended” too many people, and who knows where all those people came from. Some may not have been Southerners who should have realized that, in the South, they don’t do things quite the same as they do in Trenton, New Jersey. Some may have been brainwashed Southern kids, because, as we know if we’ve done the homework, the brainwashing in public schools literally starts on the first day in Kindergarten.

Now it turns out the school band will be prevented from playing Dixie, while the school still talks of how it preserves Southern traditions–which it seems they are seeking to stab in the back culturally, one by one. What they want is a school that is totally identified with what they call the “New South.” And, as one man said years ago in a speech I heard “The New South is NO South.” He was right.

I wonder–how many of those that send their kids to Ole Miss that are from the South realize what is going on–and if they realized it would they be in agreement with it? And if they couldn’t agree with the hatchet job being done on their culture, would they consider putting their kids in some other school–if they could find another one that wasn’t doing the same thing? Years ago author William Lind wrote an article in which he called America’s colleges “little ivy-covered North Korea’s” He was right too.

The problem becomes more and more difficult for parents who want their youngsters to get a college education without being totally brainwashed. They really have to search to find places this can be accomplished and the number of such places seems to be diminishing.

There are some Christian colleges where this is possible, but you have to be careful there too, because some Christian colleges have also drunk the leftist Kool Aid, and may or may not even realize it. Parents in the South who want their Southern traditions and culture preserved for their children and grandchildren have got to be really discerning as to where they send them to college and I don’t envy them the homework they will have to do in making that decision in our culturally Marxist society today.

One Way To Fight Back–Sue The SOB’s

by Al Benson Jr.

Just yesterday (August 16th) someone sent me an article from the Courthouse News Service http://www.courthousenews.com written by Elizabeth Warmerdam about an artist in California suing the state for barring Confederate flags. The article notes: “California’s ban on state agencies selling or displaying items showing the Confederate flag is unconstitutional, says an artist who was not allowed to show his Civil War painting at the Fresno County Fair…Timothy Desmond sued the state on Monday, claiming the law prevents him from displaying his artwork at the Big Fresno Fair, operated by the 21st District Agricultural  Association on land owned by Fresno County. Artists display their work at the Fresno Fair every October. Desmond says the law violates the First Amendment.” One thing you have to understand here, the First Amendment only applies if we are not talking about Confederate flags or symbols.  In their case it does not apply–the law of government censorship in regard to anything Confederate then becomes the state and national standard.

Desmond does not agree. The painting he wants to display shows a scene from the 1864 siege of Atlanta and, guess what, there are Confederate flags in the picture, making it automatically verboten. Desmond is asking the Federal Court to declare California’s law as “unconstitutionally overbroad.” The bill was introduced in February of 2014, (even before the insanity in Charleston) by Assemblyman Isadore Hall, after his mother saw a replica of some Confederate money with the flag on it for sale in the Capitol gift ship in Sacramento. Governor Jerry Brown, that staunch advocate of First Amendment rights (for those that agree with him) couldn’t wait to sign this bill into law.So now an artist that dares to depict a Confederate flag in any sketch or painting might just as well forget his work being shown anywhere where the state has any say over what is displayed. That this smacks more than a little of state censorship is totally immaterial. After all, we are talking about Confederate flags here and everyone knows they should not be allowed to be displayed anywhere. Just ask any Communist and he will tell you! These are the folks that support Hillary in the upcoming “election” scam and they know what the game is even if most public-school educated Americans don’t have a clue.

So Timothy Desmond is suing the state of Commiefornia, oops, I meant California. Sorry about that. I wish Mr. Desmond well in his lawsuit. I don’t know if he will be victorious or not but at least he is making the state fight to enforce their censorship and ethnic cleansing.

In the same vein, the Sons of Confederate Veterans is suing the city of Natchitoches, Louisiana for them not being able to carry their battle flags in the annual parade there that they have marched in for years. The mayor in that fair city told them, basically, you are welcome to come but leave your flags in your vehicles, preferably out of sight. The SCV didn’t march. They picketed the parade–at both ends. Now they are suing the city.

The SCV groups in New Orleans also have a lawsuit against that city to prevent them from removing Confederate monuments. A court has stopped the city from trying to remove the monuments until all the litigation is out of the way.Of course New Orleans has been having some difficulty finding someone willing to take the monuments down.

And, according to an article in The Times-Picayune back in April of this year “Almost three out of four Louisiana residents oppose removing Confederate monuments and symbols from public space, according to a poll taken by LSU in February. Only 20 percent of people surveyed favored Confederate monument removal.” Of course we all know that to be politically correct (and culturally Marxist, which is their agenda for American society) the wishes of the 20 percent should be parroted and the wishes of the 80 percent should be ignored.  After all, the 80 percent are the ones that pay the bills. What do they know?

As much as we don’t like the concept of a litigious society yet more and more we are coming to the point where, to get any relief from what overbearing governments are doing to us we are having to learn to “sue the SOB’s” because nothing else seems to check their grasp for power. And although the courts most surely don’t always solve the problem, once in awhile they do rule in favor or ordinary folks and once in awhile the lawsuits make it just that much more difficult for over-grasping governmental bodies to force their will on us. At least, in some cases, it slows them down and makes then sweat to earn their tyranny.

“Young America”

by Al Benson Jr.

Back in the mid-19th century there was a movement in this country called the Young America movement. Your history books probably seldom mentioned it, if at all. Prior to writing this I looked through several books on my shelves, checking out the indexes of many and could find no mention of it in anything I was able to check. I checked on the Internet and found only a handful of references to it that all pretty much said the same thing.

The one I will quote here is Wikipedia because it’s not all that much different than the mere handful of others I could find.

The Wikipedia article says: “The Young America Movement was an American political and cultural attitude in the mid-19th century. Inspired by European reform movements of the 1830s (such as…Young Italy and Young Hegelians), the American group was formed as a political organization in 1845 by Edward de Leon and George Henry Evans. It advocated free trade, social reform,…and support for republican, and anti-aristocratic movements abroad. It became a faction of the Democratic Party in the 1850s.” It was promoted by Senator Stephen A. Douglas and other notables of the day. It all sounds relatively harmless unless you know how to read some of this stuff and to do a little homework.

For instance, one of the “movements” that inspired it was Young Italy. Now Young Italy was a political movement founded in 1831 by Giuseppe Mazzini.  Supposedly its goal was to create a “united Italian republic through promoting a general insurrection  in the Italian reactionary states and in the lands occupied by the Austrian Empire.” According to http://www.moneyteachers.org  “Mazzini was born in France and his father was a ‘Jacobin’ (Freemason-Illuminati group that caused the French Revolution)…Even more interesting is Mazzini’s desire to create a ‘United States of Europe’ a century before the European Union came into existence. Globalism is Illuminism and Mazzini was loyal to both…” So this was one inspiration for Young America.Another was the group called Young Hegelians.  Rummaging around for into on this group I found that Karl Marx had once been involved with them http://www.cardiff.ac.uk  Enough said.

With “inspiration”  like these groups do you begin to get a bit of a vision as to where Young America might have been headed? They supposedly supported “social reform.” What exactly does that mean? Is that politically correct terminology for violent revolution?  They supported “republican and anti-aristocratic movements.” Does that mean they supported the overthrow of legitimate government that might have been ruled by kings?  And was their “republican” sentiment a cover for collectivization  and centralization? That’s a big part of what the 1848 socialist revolts in Europe were all about in countries like Germany, which was pretty decentralized. The 1848 socialist revolt there was to centralize the government so one group could control it. Three guesses as to which group that was supposed to be.

Arthur R. Thompson in his book To The Victor Go The Myths And Monuments has quite a bit to say about Young America, more than I have seen just about anywhere else. He said enough that I felt it was worth taking a brief article and dealing with it because even though it “officially” faded out sometime after the War of Northern Aggression, the mindset and worldview that promoted it is still very much with us today, just under different names.

Mr. Thompson notes on page 215 that “The Carbonari’s Young America (YA) reached its ascendancy in the late 1850s and played a key role in laying the groundwork for a future civil war. After the Civil War they faded as a visible organization, even though their ideas have never faded from the American scene, as witnessed by the Spanish-American War and the modern neoconservative movement. YA aims since the Civil War have been generally carried out by the establishment of the major political parties. In other words, the goals of YA became the established American foreign policy without being a visible movement from the Civil War  until 1921, with the formation of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), when their tactics again became obvious, even as a more visible organization than before the Civil War. By the mid-20th century there were several elite organizations promoting the YA goals, all with interlocking directorates and membership.” That sort of brings us up to where we are today. Which brings up again the question I asked in a recent article–who controls many of these groups from behind the scenes?

A few years ago I had a friend up in Arkansas (now deceased) who knew a man that used to work at flying some of these big government and establishment people around from place to place. He told my friend once that the people that really run this country are way behind the scenes and the ones you think run it are nothing more than their mouthpieces, paid political shills, as it were.

But all this proves one thing. Ideas do have consequences and the ideas from over 150 years ago have lived on to affect our lives today and the conspiracies that were around 150 plus years ago have lived on to affect how we think and act–as they were intended to. If the evil these people promoted (and it was evil)  over 150 years ago affects our lives today then it is much more than just “ancient history.” It has become part of our everyday lives and we ignore it to our peril and to the detriment of our children and grandchildren.

Contrary to what many shrinking Christians think, I don’t believe all conspiracies are “unbeatable.” With the Lord’s help and guidance and an electorate that is willing to do the homework, and having done the homework, to fight back, there are a lot of things that could have been and still can be done. Maybe we had best pray and ask the Lord what He would have us to do rather than sitting back and thinking evil conspirators are invincible–because they are not–they are sinful human creatures like the rest of us and with the proper guidance  and effort much of their agenda can be thwarted.  The Lord told us in the Scriptures to “hate evil” and to “resist the devil.” Maybe we need to be about doing just that and a good place to begin is with serious Christian worship–and then informed action!

How About a Little Damage Control?

by Al Benson Jr.

Last week the Democratic Party  was supposedly in a shambles. The web site http://thehornnews.com had an article posted for August 2nd that said, in part, “The Democratic Party is in the middle of a leadership purge that could affect the landscape of the 2016 election. Three more top Democratic Party officials have resigned today in the wake of an embarrassing email hack.”

Ahh, but that was then and this is now.

The Democrats looked pathetically bad, with party officials being thrown under the bus with amazing regularity.

On the same say all this was happening there was also an article on http://www.1776coalition.com by Gabrielle Levy which had Trump saying “I’m afraid the election’s going to be rigged, I have to be honest,…” In light of the Clintons’ reputation I didn’t think that was an outlandish statement, but apparently the Republican Establishment did because on the Horn News for August 3rd appeared an article which was headlined “Traitors! RNC pushing Trump to quit.” This article said, again in part, “The report, from an anonymous GOP source, stated that senior party insiders are so upset and baffled by Trump’s erratic behavior that they are preparing a back-up plan for replacing him on the ballot before the November general election.” Almost sounds like something they’ve had in play for awhile.

So, in two days, we have gone from a Democratic Party in shambles over all of Hillary’s leaded emails to the Republican Establishment planning to replace Trump because of “erratic” behavior. At least this is what the “news” media is telling up. Of course how much actual truth you ever get from them is always up for grabs, but looking at this entire scenario and taking it from Democratic ruin on Monday to Trump’s possible mental condition on Wednesday, it begins to smell to me like good old fashioned damage control for Hillary. They needed something to take the spotlight off of her and to focus it somewhere else so people would, in a few days, forget all about her email indiscretions and have something else to chatter about. And in typical Marxist fashion, if they can pull this off, they will kill two birds with one stone–bury Hillary’s email problems and cut Trump’s political throat all in one fell swoop! And the prostitute press are more than willing accomplices.

Unfortunately, so is the Republican National Committee–but then, if the truth be known, they always have been. Trump was not supposed to win the nomination. One of the other 16 political shills running against him was, and the Republicans weren’t too fussy which one, although they’d rather have had a Bush or a Romney than a Rand Paul, but they’d have lived with a Rand Paul if necessary. No way can they co-exist with Trump and they have been looking for some way, any way, to deep six him since long before the Republican convention. All you have to do to realize this is to have followed their actions and comments and you could have told that the real agenda has always been “anyone but Trump.”

Just because he won the nomination didn’t change their Marxist mindsets–and please, don’t try to tell me all the Republicans are conservatives. Some are, but not many. When you talk like a conservative but vote like a Marxist, then you’re a Marxist, possibly different from the Democratic Marxists only in degree and false rhetoric.

It’s like I have said so many times before–the same leftist Council on Foreign Relations/Trilateral Commission clique in Washington and New York controls both parties at the leadership levels.  The only question we might ask, in light of recent articles  I’ve done, is who controls the CFR and the Trilateralists?  As high up as they are, they ain’t at the top of the totem pole.

So watch what goes on in the next few days. Hillary’s email problems will probably be ancient history and the Republican Establishment will attempt to find a way to replace Trump with yet another political stooge who will make sure it’s business as usual–and that Hillary wins. That’s the real name of the game.

So what will all the folks that voted for and supported Trump end up doing when they find they have no real voice at all as all this goes down?  Probably not as much as we could hope for.

Illuminists, Apostates, Spiritualists–the usual suspects–All Interlocking

by Al Benson Jr.

The title of this article should give you some idea of where we are headed. As we look at the Illuminati and its continuing influence, even down to today,  we have to note that much of their effort was (and is) directed at reaching the next generation or two and, through them, continuing to reach into the future. As evil as they were, they had a multi-generational approach to keeping their worldview, their religious faith as it were, alive and well. More Christians should take a multi-generational approach to making sure their children and grandchildren learn the truth. However, the Illuminist conspirators have taken great pains to make sure this does not happen by the way their minions have worked at neutralizing most churches with erroneous information and just plain bad doctrine. So the church ends up being neutered and what should be opposition to Illuminist efforts withers on the vine.

In his book A Theological Interpretation of American History C. Gregg Singer, once on the faculty of Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where he served as Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, has noted: “After 1830 there was a growing philosophical and theological cleavage between the North and the South.  While the North was becoming increasingly subject to radical influences, the South was becoming increasingly conservative in its outlook.” He observed that Old School Presbyterianism had begun to take a strong stand against the abolitionist position, “…not because it was opposed to slavery per se, but because of the philosophy and theology which it represented, and because they clearly saw that if this radicalism were to gain the supremacy in the national government, then there must certainly come in its wake a radical political and social program which would threaten the established order and constitutional government for the nation as a whole.” He took note of Rev. John Henley Thornwell’s commentary on this where Thornwell said: “The parties in this conflict are not merely abolitionists and slave-holders–they are atheists, socialists, communists,  red republicans, Jacobins on the one side and the friends of order and regulated freedom on the other.In one word, the world is the battleground–Christianity and atheism the combatants, and the progress of humanity is at stake.” Thornwell wrote this in 1850. The War of Northern Aggression was a decade away yet, but with amazing prescience, he saw what was coming and he recognized many of the adversaries. Rev. Benjamin Morgan Palmer called the abolitionist mindset “undeniably atheistic”  and he connected it with the French Revolution. These godly men saw the problem and recognized some of those involved, but did they grasp the fact that there was a guiding hand in back of the Jacobins, socialists, atheists and the rest that moved them all to do what they were doing in concert? Whether they did or not, it’s a question we ought to consider, for it is still applicable in our day when we look at some of the groups and individuals that perform radical acts on the contemporary scene.

We can all look at the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, the Southern Poverty Law Center and even the Ku Klux Klan in our day and ask the question–where does the money and direction come from for these groups to do what they do, and who behind the scenes that we never hear about gives them their marching orders? Because no matter how you try to cut the mustard, what most of these groups do is not spontaneous.  I watched so-called “anti-war” groups in action on two college campuses right after the Kent State shootings back in the early 1970s, when you had some of the most well-organized “spontaneous” demonstrations you ever saw, complete with propaganda printed in North Viet Nam for protesting American students to carry and hand out. And this stuff came to at least one of these schools by the box load because I brought a box full of it home at the time and went through it. So please don’t talk to me about “spontaneous.” I’ve been there–and “spontaneous” it ain’t!

It was no different after the War of Northern Aggression. Arthur Thompson has noted in his authoritative book To The Victor Go The Myths And Monuments that: “The practice of sending the worst sort of political radicals and members of secret societies as our representatives continued after the Civil War. These men represented the U.S. government, but not necessarily the American people.The Marxist Louis Blenker was appointed our man in Nantes, France. Alexander Asboth, who had served with Kossuth in 1848, was our man in Argentina and Uruguay…After serving as secretary of war and then attorney general under Grant, co-founder of the Order (of Skull and Bones)  Alphonso Taft was appointed U.S. minister to Austria and then Russia…(Carl) Schurz, after supporting a movement to annex Canada to the United States, became active in the anti-imperialism movement.” Makes you wonder if Schurz  was an early advocate of the present-day North American Union movement. Three of the four men mentioned here were Forty-eighters that Donnie Kennedy and I dealt with in our book Lincoln’s Marxists.  Only Alphonso Taft wasn’t–and he was co-founder of the Skull and Bones society which is still alive and flourishing today. Look up Skull and Bones on the Internet. You should find some interesting reading.

If you are able to get Mr. Thompson’s book, and I hope that many will, you will find an amazing list of people belonging to abolitionist, Spiritualist, socialist and Feminist groups mentioned and there are interlocking memberships and directorates in all these groups so that when you learn what to look for you can begin to see a pattern here of a small but influential clique of people belonging to different groups, which often seem at odds with each other, but are really not. You start to see the same names over and over again in the different groups and you cannot help but come away with the distinct impression that you really have one fairly small clique exerting tremendous influence  over many groups, and therefore many people. Such cannot be accidental or coincidental.

And this continued on into the twentieth century (and beyond).  Mr. Thompson mentioned prohibition and the  Prohibition Party, one of the founders of which was Alvan Bovay, one of the founders of the radical Republican Party.  He also noted, in passing, the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, “which was run by the lesbian Frances Willard.” Folks, I swear, you can’t make this stuff up!  In closing out this particular chapter, which majored on Leftist infiltration, Thompson noted: “A unit organized under the American Red Cross later served as a cover for American involvement  in helping to solidify Lenin’s Bolshevik  government in Russia.” I bet your history books forgot to include that one.

Those that wish to get information about Mr. Thompson’s book can contact: American Opinion Publishing, 750 N. Hickory Farm Lane, Appleton, Wisconsin 54914. Don’t think that the Illuminati is dead just because you don’t see the name floating around anymore. Rather, look at the myriad of other organizations out there today, no matter what their names, that promote anti-Christianity, One World Government, socialism, and all those agendas dear to the heart of any Illuminist.

Illuminism,Spiritualism, And Apostasy (one big and unhappy family)

by Al Benson Jr.

In the last article I did dealing with this unholy mess that has contributed so much to the downfall of this country I dealt with the Abolitionists and their internationalist (Illuminist) worldview. I noted how the abolition of slavery was just one small step for them in their real quest–world government.

One notable area (as if to prove the anti-Christian nature of all this) that many abolitionists got into was the Spiritualist Movement that seems to have entered this country in, guess what year, 1848.

In her book Radical Spirits author Ann Braude, who seems to have no problem with any of this, noted on page 27 that: “Every notable progressive family of the nineteenth century had its advocate of Spiritualism, some of them more than one. Anna Blackwell, eldest and most radical sibling of pioneer doctors Elizabeth and Emily and abolitionists Henry and Sam, adopted Spiritualism by 1850 and became a vociferous lifelong advocate. The ubiquitous Beecher family contributed Charles Beecher and Isabella Beecher Hooker to the ranks, while Harriet Beecher Stowe became a serious investigator…As already noted, abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison was an early convert and remained loyal to the movement until his death.  The famous Grimke sisters, Sarah and Angelina, talked to spirits…Mary Todd Lincoln spoke with her dead son, Willie, and brought mediums into the White House, where they conducted seances for senators and cabinet members.” In case you are not familiar with them, the Grimke sisters mentioned here were noted abolitionists.

And, in 1862, Lydia Maria Child stated that: “Spiritualism is undermining the authority of the Bible in the minds of what are called the common people faster than all other causes put together.” Ms. Braude went into all this in a depth I am unable to here.

Arthur R. Thompson, in his informative book, To The Victor Go The Myths And Monuments noted of the abolitionists that: “Abolitionist leaders quoted Scripture, but most practiced some form of heresy.  They lauded the United States while plotting its demise through disunion and promoted world government in some form, all in the name of wiping out slavery.” Interesting to note that it was the Northern radicals that promoted most of the disunion while the South gets the blame for it. Mr. Thompson notes that: “In January 1857, a Disunion Convention was held in Worcester, Massachusetts. Attendants included T. W. Higginson, Wendell Phillips, William Lloyd Garrison, E. M. Hosmer, Stephen Foster, Samuel J. May Jr., and John Brown,with Francis W. Bird as the president of the convention. The aim was to discuss the steps necessary to dissolve the union. What it really did was to furnish yet more proof to Southern sensibilities that abolitionists were out to destroy America–at the minimum it supplied evidence  that certain elements in the North would just as soon have the South out of the United States.” James Redpath, an abolitionist propagandist posing as a journalist covered the event. One can just imagine what he reported, as he was one of those “journalists” that later lionized terrorist John Brown. Any of you ever remember reading about this in your “history” books? Didn’t think so, neither did I. Another inconvenient little historical tidbit we were not supposed to know about.

Mr. Thompson also noted that “The use of what was known as Transcendentalism and spiritualism in the 1800s was designed to break down the existing social and religious structure.” Transcendentalism was a radical form of Unitarianism and most by now are beginning to realize what spiritualism was. Not only was the Spiritualist Movement alive and well in abolitionist circles but it was also thriving in the Feminist Movement of that day.

Ann Braude observed that “The American woman’s rights movement drew its first breaths in an atmosphere alive with the rumors of angels. Members of the Waterloo Friends flocked to nearby Seneca Falls and figured prominently in the convention’s proceedings. Raps reportedly rocked the same table where Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton penned the ‘Declaration of Sentiments’ which formed the convention’s agenda…From this time on, Spiritualism and woman’s rights intertwined repeatedly as both became mass movements that challenged the existing norms of American life…’Spiritualism has inaugurated the era of woman’ Mary Davis proclaimed.  She recalled the common birthdate of the new religion and woman’s rights in 1848. ‘Since that time Spiritualism has promoted the cause of woman more than any other movement’ Davis explained.” So what does this lady’s comment tell you about the Feminist Movement, both yesterday and today? If the tree had bad roots, can the fruit be any better?

In our book Lincoln’s Marxists Donnie Kennedy and I have included an addendum on page 307 called Feminists and Forty Eighters. It gives you a little more information on some of those in the Feminist Movement in both this country and Europe who had ties with and affinity for socialism. This movement in this country today is another part of the Illuminist/Marxist push toward One World Government and the more you study it the more apparent that will become. Combine that with the Spiritualist Movement and the current apostasy going forward in many churches today and you really have a toxic and spiritually cancerous mix, guaranteed to infect any it touches.

Illuminists, Abolitionists, Spiritualists and Apostates (and they’re all related)

by Al Benson Jr.

Just recently I have written about the Illuminati, founded on May 1, 1776 in Bavaria by Adam Weishaupt. It was and is an anti-Christian organization, one of the main functions of which was to destroy Christianity and overthrow legitimate government (not what we have today).  I noted that many historians claim this organization pretty much died out in the early 1800s and was never a serious problem after that. I wonder who taught these historians that. The evidence seems to give the lie to that convenient (for the Illuminati) little theory.

In his book To The Victor Go The Myths And Monuments Arthur Thompson, CEO of the John Birch Society noted: “A popular opinion in the early 1800s was that the abolitionists were agents of England, and there were a few who viewed them as an extension of the Illuminati. The masthead of the Liberator, William Lloyd Garrison’s abolitionist newspaper, reinforced this latter idea. The initial slogan on the paper was: ‘Our Country is the world–Our Countrymen are Mankind’.” This is consistent with the worldview of the Illuminati. And Garrison’s worldview leaned very much in that direction.

In a booklet I wrote several years ago on the abolitionists as part of my Home School History Course I noted some of Garrison’s comments and observed that he sounded strongly internationalist in his outlook. Garrison said that, after the overthrow of slavery, the cause of peace would command his attention, and he concluded by saying that: “As our object is universal emancipation–to redeem woman as well as man from a servile to an equal condition–we shall go for the rights of women to their utmost extent.” Garrison’s writings could  be strongly embraced by any Marxist, then or now. What Marxist is there, or has there ever been, who was not strongly committed to universal suffrage (at least for one election), world citizenship, peace, and women’s rights?  Remember who hired Marx to write his manifesto. The Illuminist worldview shines through here for those with eyes to see.

Mr. Thompson stated that Garrison visited England in 1833, where he made some rather uncomplimentary comments about his country in general and not just about the slavery issue.  And Thompson noted: “Someone had to organize this visit to England. You did not just get off the boat and start planning your speeches. Politically motivated organizations set them up by what were called lyceums, which were associations for discussion and instruction by lectures and other means…These lyceums were copies of the Illuminist  organizations on the European continent.” Mr. Thompson duly noted Garrison’s relationship with a George Thompson, a Chartist abolitionist leader. Donnie Kennedy and I mentioned the Chartists in our book Lincoln’s Marxists. Allan Pinkerton of the famed Pinkerton Detective Agency and a friend of Lincoln had been a Chartist in Britain before he came to this country.  The Chartists were British socialists. Mr. Thompson labels them as communists, and I surely won’t dispute him. In fact he noted that: “Garrison’s relationship with Thompson was so close that he named his son George Thompson Garrison after this Englishman.” And he also observed, with all this, it was easy for many to think that the abolitionist movement may have been English in origin, but then he said: “However, this just hid the real impetus behind the abolition movement. We must not forget that the epicenter of the Conspiracy had increasingly moved out of the Continent into England after 1800. Gradually, the leadership and top minions of all the Conspiracy’s second generation organizations were ensconced in London: Mazzini, Marx, etc. From there the epicenter moved to New York in the last half of the 19th century…you see that the issue was not simply confined to anti-slavery.” Mr. Thompson is correct. The abolitionist movement was, indeed, about a lot more than freeing slaves. That was the “up front” issue for the uninitiated.

In the circles of supposed anti-slavery, Mr. Thompson also mentioned Samuel Gridley Howe, of Secret Six fame and the husband of Julia Ward Howe. I did a series of articles for my newsletter The Copperhead Chronicle a few years back on the Secret Six and one of them was on the vaunted Mr. Howe. Turns out that Howe traveled to Germany, “In the company of Albert Brisbane, the communist, and he had a knack for showing up at revolutionary insurrections in Europe. His idea to aid anti-slavery in Kansas was guns…While in Europe, Howe was the head of an American Committee in Paris, which was helped and funded by the Illuminist Lafayette and played a role in the Polish revolution in the early 1830s.” He was a friend of Henry Longfellow and Charles Sumner, who was infamous for his hatred of the South.  Sumner was a Radical Republican who advocated world government and who would eventually join the communist First International.  So, as you can see, these people had a whole other agenda than freeing the slaves. That was but one step up the ladder in their ascent to world government.

And through all of this, hidden behind the curtain that you are not supposed to pull back and look behind,  is the shadow of the Illuminati–yesterday, today, and tomorrow. More to come. I haven’t yet touched on the Spiritualists, and they are something else!
