Terrorism in America Isn’t New–Nor will it cease anytime soon

by Al Benson Jr.

Recently a friend at church asked me a question that showed he had been thinking. He said “Was there anything like the BLM around before the Civil War?” It was a good question, one most people would not have thought of in our day of gross historical ignorance.

After a bit of thought what popped into my mind was terrorist John Brown’s atrocities in Kansas and his attack on the arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. The parallels to today are quite striking. Brown was a 19th century terrorist trying to do away with slavery. I have seen comments that he was some sort of communist. I would not doubt that. He had two Forty-eighters in his merry little band of terrorists when he was in Kansas. I don’t think they came east with him.

While in Kansas he made a point of attacking Southern families, even if they owned no slaves. John Brown and his “Northern Army” made war on Southerners even before Abe Lincoln did–just because they were Southerners. Terrorists always make war on innocent people. It scares most people into non-resistance to the terrorists efforts and goals.

I found an informative article by Steve Byas in the Feb. 7th, 2017 issue of the New American Magazine entitled John Brown’s Lethal Legacy. Mr. Byas went into quite a bit of detail about Brown’s terrorist activity and also about the wealthy northeasterners that financed and supported it. You should be able to find this on the internet. I did.

In referring to Brown’s terrorist killings in Kansas, Mr. Byas noted: “These brutal murders took place during the struggle between violent pro–and anti-slavery forces for control of the Kansas territory–known to history as ‘Bleeding Kansas.’ While the body of John Brown, as the song says, is ‘moldering in the grave,’ his example still inspires modern radicals, who justify violence upon the innocent if the cause is ‘just.’ Following the election of Donald Trump, Brown was specifically cited by some extremists to justify a violent response…and behind similar violent protesters today–are the radical men with the money,…” Indeed, the group that is called The Secret Six that supported and financed John Brown were the George Soros’ and Rockefellers and Fords of their day–“willing to invest money in treason” as Unitarian Thomas Wentworth Higginson said in that day.

If you want to check out what some of the present day radicals on the left are doing then do an internet search on The John Brown Gun Clubs.

Another interesting site you might want to check out is https://www.redneckrevolt.org/principles This site claims it is “putting the red back in redneck.” Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what they are talking about. Where Black Lives Matter is directed at blacks, this site is directed at whites, but they stand for the same things that BLM does–tearing down capitalism and “white supremacy” and their (not your) right to revolution.

And one more for your reading pleasure https://www.unz.com/mwhitney/blms-war-on-the-deplorables The sources listed here should give you some idea of what is going on in our day–and what has gone on since the War of Northern Aggression–and before. It’s nothing new, folks. To figure it out all you need is a sense of history and being willing to connect the dots. It’s like the Bible says in Ecclesiastes, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun.”

Leftist radicals in the 1850s had the same goals as they do in our day–the destruction of our country and its culture and its real history. Didn’t know it had been going on that long, did you? That’s because most of us were never taught real history–but it’s not too late for us to learn.

Black Lives Matter and Communists and Spiritualists

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been following the leftist Black Lives Matter movement recently and have noted how many universities, churches, and public schools seem to have embraced it. All I can say about this is that the leadership in these groups is either hopelessly naive or they are in sympathy with the leftist agenda promoted by BLM. I have my own opinion on this but readers will have to form their own opinions.

The publisher of our conservative weekly paper here The Ouachita Citizen noted this situation in regard to a university right here in Louisiana in the September 17th issue of the paper and he wondered if the university was aware that it was supporting a group with Marxist principles. My guess would be they are and that’s okay with them.

In a recent issue of the New American Magazine writer James Murphy noted that “If you needed anymore evidence that Black Lives Matter is, at its heart, a Marxist sub-group intent on overthrowing capitalism and the American way of life, consider the following. The advocacy group Black Futures Lab, which lists BLM founder Alicia Garza as its principal, is ‘fiscally supported’ by the pro-Communist Chinese group Chinese Progressive Association (CPA). Garza–who was described by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors as a ‘trained Marxist’ who is ‘super-versed on…ideological theories–helped to create the Black Futures Lab in 2018…Among the stunts CPA has pulled over the years was to hoist a Chinese Communist flag on Boston’s City Plaza last September to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Communist takeover of China.”

Lest you think that Black Lives Matter is just a political movement, there was also an article on https://www.crisismagazine.com for September 8th of this year by Dan Burke called The Occult Spirituality of Black Lives Matter. This seems to be a Catholic publication but the author is right on target on this issue.

He quotes Patrisse Cullors where she says: “In my tradition you offer things that your loved ones who have passed away would want. Whether its like honey or tobacco…things like that…It is important that we be in direct relationship with the dead. Hashtags for us are way more than a hashtag. It is literally almost resurrecting spirits that are going to work through us to get the work done.” And Burke observes that Melina Abdullah concurs “What happens as we invoke those names is the invocation of their names that goes beyond remembering them. We call out our ancestors, we call them out for specific purposes.”

Another commentator familiar with this said “Christians, How much evidence do you need? It’s right in front of you. She told you that every time the hashtag is shared it is not just a hashtag. There are spirits of the dead that we are invoking. Every time they mention the name ‘Say his name–George Floyd’–that is a seance. That is calling forth the dead spirit to invoke chaos on the nation..Everything we have seen go on, buildings burning, all of that, there are witches laughing…They are laughing at how complicit the Church has been.”

I have to agree with his assessment here. Churches have been complicit, probably because they don’t know the real truth about Black Lives Matter, but possibly because some of them do and they are willing to support Marxist subversives over the objections of their congregations. Churches supporting communism would not be a new situation. I’ve seen churches supporting Marxism for over 50 years and it no doubt went on long before that.

As for colleges and universities supporting Marxism, that, too, has been going on since before I was alive. The absolute last people that seem to figure this out are the parents who subject their kids to that Marxist indoctrination and pay the big bucks so their kid’s loyalties can be tampered with. They never seem to get it–even when you explain it to them.

And then there are the public schools whose foundations are Unitarian and socialist. The parents with kids in them don’t seem to get it either, at least not most of the ones I have talked to. So what do you do? You keep on throwing the truth at the wall of ignorance and praying that the Lord will let some of it stick.

The truth about Black Lives Matter is out there for those willing to look.

The Virus Was Intentional

by Al Benson Jr.

Recently Tucker Carlson interviewed a Chinese virologist, a Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who has recently been banned from Twitter for daring to tell people the truth about the Chinese virus that had shut down so much of the world.

Needless to say, in this country, the Chinese virus has been a godsend to those politicians on the left who crave the power to regulate everyone’s life to the nth degree. They also see the virus as a weapon to be used against Trump in this election year. And all things considered, I have questioned the timing of the release of this virus in the year Trump is running for re-election. Accident? Years ago a politician said “Nothing happens by accident. It is all decided in smoke-filled back rooms ahead of time” or something to that effect.

The article about Tucker’s interview appeared on Zero Hedge for September 16th. It noted that: “Hours after her unceremonious Twitter ban for, we assume, presenting evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was created inn a Wuhan lab, Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan appeared on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ where she told the Fox news host that the virus is a ‘Frankenstein’ which was designed to target humans which was intentionally released.”

She said it could never come from nature. She is an MD/PhD who worked with this virus at the University of Hong Kong. She also wrote a 26-page paper, which she co-wrote with three other Chinese scientists, and she said: “They don’t want people to know this truth. Also, that’s why I get suspended (from Twitter), I get suppression. I am the target the Chinese Communist Party wants disappeared.”

Dr. Yan fled from Hong Kong back in late April on a flight to the US and believes her life is in danger. Knowing the Communists, she is probably right. As long as the Communists are in power in China she will never be able to go back home and she’ll even have to watch where she goes in this country and how open she is about her movements. Communists have never let national borders hinder their attempts to liquidate those on their hit lists.

But her comments to Tucker Carlson were informative. She tells us right up front that this Chinese Virus was intentionally released. This was no accident, no coincidence, no foolish mistake on someone’s part. This was intentional!!! The Chinese Communists did it on purpose!

The ChiComs probably had lots of reasons. They strive for world domination and they would dearly love to see a Democrat in the White House rather than Trump because they know a Democratic president, no matter who he, she, or it is, will take them back to the days that they were able to have their way with our politicians the way they did during the Obama era. And lets face it, most Democrats are not all that far removed from communists in their worldview.

The communists, Chinese or otherwise, have lots of friends in this country–the news media, Democratic politicians, some Republican politicians, most of academia, most of Hollyweird, and then there are the various Marxist groups funded by George Soros, the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations and others. Mostly it seems that the only folks not in some communist’s back pocket are the normal Americans–the ones no one wants to or dares to speak up for. Or as someone once said “There is no justice–just us!” And we have to depend on the Lord for our help because it seems that almost no one else cares about us.

Just remember one thing–with the communists nothing is accidental. Whatever they do that we have been told was accidental or coincidental was really done on purpose. The intent is really to take this country down–unless the Democrats win in November. And if that happens they may let us exist just awhile longer–until their agenda for America is a done deal.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation

This material is passed along by Al Benson Jr. It is not original with me. It was sent to me by a friend in the Upper South and I felt it was important to pass it along.

Too many think Black Lives Matter is just a spontaneous group formed to speak out against injustices to black folks. This article gives the complete lie to such foolishness.

The Revolution Will Continue Until People Get Fed Up

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Many folks are wondering when this latest mad rush toward everything on the left will ever end. It seems as though every leftwing person and cause known to man is being pushed down our throats and, if you talk to the people I talk to you then you will realize they are getting fed up with it all.

I have taken note of all these pampered darlings in professional sports refusing to stand up for our National Anthem. When will such foolishness conclude? It will end when the public at large gets so completely fed up with these sports prima-donnas that they just start tuning out all the sports programs on the weekends and start doing something else. When sports ratings fall through the floor and into the basement and sports stadiums end up being one half to one third full instead of being crowded, then it will change.

Frankly, I’ve gotten so tired of seeing all these sports teams in such a heat to endorse the Marxist group Black Lives Matter that I am tuning out all sports programs until that changes. I can’t be bothered wasting my time on sports teams who feel their goal in life is to endorse Marxist organizations. If that’s the pathetic best they can do then they can do it without me.

I’ve noticed the same situation in some public schools. You will see a picture of a public school classroom and the crowning achievement of the whole thing is the huge Black Lives Matter poster that takes up about half on one whole wall. You would think that an organization the claims to be all about educating children would know better than to endorse a Marxist organization. In fact, I’d be willing to bet some of them do. But the fact that this sort of thing turns up in a public school classroom at all shows you the direction this school system is really trying to take your kids in, notwithstanding the many good teachers there are out there.

Over the years I have written many articles detailing the leftist tilt to public education in this country. When will that end? It will end when enough parents care enough to do the homework to find out where public education is really coming from. Until then it will be more of the same because as it now stands, most parents don’t care enough to bother–a situation that bodes ill for this country.

I wonder if Trump’s education secretary has any idea of what goes on in the schools she is supposed to be overseeing or if she is just going through the motions. Is it bureaucracy as usual? At this point it would seem so.

And for you folks that don’t like what the colleges are teaching your kids–why do you keep paying for it? Certainly you could find someplace to educate your kids other than the Leftist University of the Americas? But you don’t bother–and so nothing will change until you decide to “bother.”

The Marxist revolution will continue until people get tired enough of it that they are willing to do something about it. At this point folks must love it because they seem willing to put up with it.

“When Rebel Was Cool”

A book review by Al Benson Jr.

Recently I read Ron Kennedy’s new book When Rebel Was Cool, published by Shotwell Publishing in Columbia, South Carolina. This is a book that should touch the average reader on many levels. It is a poignant story the Kennedy Brothers, Ron and Donnie’s “growing up years” from 1950-1965. Being only nine years older than the Kennedy Brothers I found myself comparing my “growing up years” to theirs.

They grew up in rural South Mississippi in a time when the results of Yankee “reconstruction” in the South had not quite worn off yet–100 years after the War of Northern Aggression I was in parts of the South in the late 1950s and so I can attest to the results of Yankee “reconstruction” in that part of the country.

Ron explained why he wrote this book, and I can identify with his reasons. He wrote: “These stories and photographs–some over 100 years old and in poor condition–are our stories written for our grandchildren and all the grandchildren of the South, even if they no longer live in the South. One day our grandchildren may want to know why their grandfathers loved the South so much, especially during a time when the leftwing secular world is actively engaged in destroying Confederate monuments and viciously slandering the honor of the men who wore the gray in the War for Southern Independence…I hope and pray that one day our grandchildren and other Southern grandchildren will read these accounts, otherwise they will never know the truth–a truth that sadly, today, is not allowed to be publicly told.”

My grandchildren have always lived in the North. Only the oldest one has been in the South–but I want them to know these truths as well so they will not embrace the Marxist lies told about the good people of the South.

Ron dealt with many issues in this book and gives you an accurate picture of much that went on in the South during his growing up years. His comments on racial segregation are some you will never read in Yankee “history” books–but they are true nonetheless. On page 18 he noted: “Today, most Americans think that segregation (white supremacy) was something established in the South, but in reality, it was something already established in the North and then, after the
War, imported from the North. During the War, Yankee General ‘Beast’ Butler established ‘Black Codes’ in occupied Louisiana. His ‘Black Codes’ were based upon similar laws then in effect in his home state of Massachusetts. Most Americans incorrectly think that slavery was strictly a Southern issue, but in reality, it was an American issue–the North being primarily responsible for slavery in America. Very few folks know that slavery lasted 75 years longer in Massachusetts than it did in Mississippi.” And he commented also that “…Massachusetts and other Northern states earned much of their wealth from their involvement in the African slave trade and then enacted exclusion laws to prevent free blacks from coming into their states!”

Ron also commented on life in the rural South and said some things I, as growing up in semi-rural Eastern Massachusetts could identify with. He mentioned the three-room rural school house he and Donnie attended and how it had no inside gym, only playground equipment in the school yard. The first school house I attended had only four rooms, for grades 1-4, and the next school house I went to had only six rooms and no inside gym, only playground equipment in the school yard

Ron mentioned the kids, as they got older, taking guns to school so they could go hunting after school was out and when they got older and drove to school there was often a rifle rack in the back window of the truck that was driven to school–and no one shot a people on the way home from school. Today many parents would be alarmed at this, but in those days there were seldom any problems. Nowadays kids get arrested for bringing a toy gun to school for “show and tell” or if they even point their finger at another kid and say “bang.” We have gone from responsibility to sheer panic–and mostly over nothing!

Ron also noted something else that struck a familiar chord with me–wild berry picking in the Summer. Many rural Southern folks did this because it helped to put food on the table. My Grandfather, Dad and I often picked wild blueberries in the Summer–not because we had to, but because my Grandmother was a good cook and made delicious pies.

The South has often been called “The Bible Belt” because it is the area of the country where the Christian faith is most evident and where more folks go to church than in other areas. And to get through the Yankee “reconstruction” and the really hard times that followed it Southern folks had to have a strong faith in the Lord to see them through. Life in the post-war South was not easy, nor was it easy for the next hundred years! And, here, Ron had a warning for Christian folks. He said: “It is a sad fact of history that when a people are struggling during hard times or when outside tyrants oppress their nation the people tend to ‘look to God’ for comfort, guidance and help. But once freedom is won or prosperity returns, these same people (or the next generation) tend to ignore the very God who sustained them during the hard times. I fear that this is happening to the South just as it happened to God’s people of Israel, as recorded in the Old Testament.” There is a warning for us here today–if we will but heed it! Ron noted on page 57 the apostasy that engulfed the North in the decades before the War and how many religious leaders in the South saw the War as a spiritual struggle. There was definitely that aspect to it–and it has never been dealt with by our “historians.” Ron discussed the differences between Northern and Southern cultures on page 93.

He commented on the Civil Rights Movement on page 144 and how it was resisted by Southern folks not because they hated blacks but because it was something being pushed and promoted by the federal government–the same federal government the fought against their ancestors and pushed “reconstruction” down their throats.

And he noted on page 150 how much of the so-called “history” and commentary in our day is employed as a ‘divide and conquer” strategy to divide the races off against one another so they will not realize that they have more in common than what separates them and that keeps them from working together against globalist politicians who plan to do both races in one way or another.

Toward the end of the book Ron had a chapter called How to Speak Southern Redneck words and phrases and I really enjoyed this. It is a compendium of colloquial Southern phrases, many of which, surprisingly, I also heard growing up in the North. Quite a few of these were used in my own family in my growing up years and were familiar to me. I don’t know if they originated in the South and made their way to the North or what, but I sure heard a batch of them from both family and friends growing up.

There is much more in Ron’s book than I could ever cover in a book review. I have only touched on some of the high spots and areas that struck me personally. Reading it caused me to think back to my own childhood and to the hard times we had when I was growing up, We were not “punished with poverty” as the South was, but life was not always easy street for us either.

Maybe some of us older folks need to read this and then call it to the attention of our grandchildren so they will possibly begin to get a glimpse of what life was like for us “back in the day” and what it may end up being like for them again if they refuse to heed the warning signs about the direction we seem to be headed in.

Do Democrats Plan To Steal The Election?

by Al Benson Jr.

The title of this article is a rhetorical question. Sort of like asking who is buried in Grant’s tomb. Most of my readers already know the answer though some may not know how they plan to do it.

In yesterday’s article I mentioned something called the Transition Integrity Project. An article posed by William A. Jacobson on https://legalinsurrection.com on 9/3/20 is quite revelatory.

Mr. Jacobson writes: “The Red Mirage theory, recently floated by a Democratic data firm and promoted by Axios, predicts that Trump will have a large lead on Election Night that will evaporate in the ensuing weeks as mail-in ballots are counted It provides a ground upon which Democrats will refuse to concede the election either Election Night or the following day. Rather, the claimed certainty that there is a wave of Biden mail-in votes yet to be counted is all Democrats will need to make a concerted post-Election Day effort to steal the election.”

If this is true, and at this point I have no reason to doubt Mr. Jacobson or the two writers I quoted yesterday, how do the Democrats already know all those mail-in ballots coming in so late will be for Biden. Or even a majority of them? I expect there would have to be a handful of “Trump votes” in there just to make it look legitimate. The fact that the Democrats plan to do what they are doing indicates to those of us with suspicious minds that they already know what will be contained in most of those mail-in votes. All the more reason for those that can to show up at the polls on Election Day and vote in person.

Jacobson also observed: “There was also something called the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), a supposedly ‘bipartisan’ but the Republican side represented by the likes of Michael Steele and Bill Kristol, devoted Never Trumpers. So the TIP is the Democrat/Never Trump version of what might happen. TIP released a report, and almost every scenario they outline involves Democrat refusing to accept the Election Night result, indeed, the election result at all. They blame Trump for Democrats refusal to accept the election in a perverse justification for planning to refuse a Trump win.” This is a classic example of cultural Marxism at work–blame your opposition for what you are doing yourself. At this point the Democrats have been so penetrated by Marxist ideology they are probably incapable of doing anything else.

There was a time in our history, 150 years ago, when the Democrats were the conservatives and the Republicans were the socialists. Now both parties are socialist. Where does that leave the American people? The political establishment in both parties has sold us out to the Deep State. Outside of Trump and a handful of dedicated patriots we have no friends in Washington–only those who want to sell this country out.

Keeping Trump Out Of Office Even If (When) He Wins

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have observed articles on the net in the past few days about how the leftist Democrats and their “Never Trump” friends in the Republican Party plan to deny Donald Trump his second term even if he wins it. Trump is not a part of the Deep State Establishment and so they cannot allow him a second term to continue undoing all they have been working toward for decades in their effort to “Make America Last” in their drive for globalist world government.

Since the two articles I quote briefly from here are rather lengthy I will note the authors and the articles and recommend that you check both out on your own. But realize this–the people mentioned in these articles do intend to deny Trump a second term even if he wins one. They will work to stop him any way they can, any way they have to, legal, illegal, whatever works for them. They don’t care how.

The first article is by Whitney Webb and appeared on http://www.unlimitedhangout.com It noted that “A group of ‘bipartisan’ neoconservative Republicans and establishment Democrats have been simulating multiple catastrophic scenarios for the 2020 election, including a simulation where a clear victory by the incumbent provokes ‘unprecedented’ measures, which the Biden campaign could take to foil a new Trump inauguration…Per several media reports on the group, called the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) they justify these exercises as specifically preparing for a scenario where President Trump loses the 2020 election, and refuses to leave office, potentially resulting in a constitutional crisis. However, according to TIP’s own documents, even their simulations involving a ‘clear win’ for Trump in the upcoming election resulted in a constitutional crisis, as they predicted that the Biden campaign would make bold moves aimed at securing the presidency, regardless of the election result.”

Read that again. Do you realize what they are telling you here? They plan to deny Trump a second term even if he wins one. In other words, what the American people voted for will be denied them because it conflicts with the Deep States agenda.

Webb continues: “Such concerns are only magnified by the recent claims made by the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton, that Biden should not concede under any circumstances.” I watched the video of her saying just that.

No doubt part of this votescam is to deluge the postal service with tons of mail in ballots that will take weeks and weeks to sort through and many of which will not be legitimate to begin with. I have read articles about peoples dead cats getting mail in ballots. I just wonder who fills those out for the felines, dead or alive, that receive them.

Another article, this one by Michael Anton on https://americanmind.org deals with the same situation. Anton observed that “The second part of the plan is either to produce enough harvested ballots–lawfully or not–to tip close states, or else dispute the results in close states and insist no matter what they talley says, that Biden won them.”

So you can begin to see that, unless all this is exposed to the public at large, the Democratic fix will be in for the next election, and Trump will be out even if he wins, which is entirely likely. And you can rest assured that the mainstream fake news media will not bother to inform you of any of this because they are complicit. Please check out the sites I noted here and read the articles yourself.

The Issue Is Always Communist Revolution

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

An article in the New American Magazine for July 6th of this year by Alex Newman observed that: “Leftists have long used the infamous slogan The issue is never the issue, the issue is always the revolution. This saying gives you an idea of what communist revolutionaries are really all about, no matter what they tell you or the lying news media. The issue they claim to be promoting or endorsing is, at root, not what they are really all about. That issue, whatever it may be is really only a way to promote communist revolution in America. So, when BLM or Antifa or some other group with a noble-sounding name tells you they are combatting “systemic racism” or “police brutality” or some other so-called righteous cause you know it is really all about promoting communist revolution in the streets no matter what they tell you.

Their aim is really promoting communist revolution and using some noble-sounding cause or rhetoric to do that because that is what they are really all about. The noble-sounding language usually fools the uninitiated and the “useful idiots” into thinking they are really doing the world some good by their efforts when all they are doing is becoming “pawns in the game” for the Marxists.

Alex Newman continued: “That could not be more obvious today, as those seeking to remake America use the longtime communist strategy of applying pressure from below and pressure from above to trap Americans in their pincer grip to reconstruct America….The revolutionaries and their backers–billionaire backers such as George Soros and the Rockefeller dynasty–are attempting to undermine civilization, limited government, the rule of law, Christianity, traditional morality, free markets and individual liberty by equating them all to ‘white supremacy’ and ‘structural racism’.”

So all those riots, looting and burnings that the “news” media told you were “spontaneous”–well, guess what folks–they weren’t! The news media, so called, lied to you. And what’s more, they knew they were lying! So don’t kid yourself about the integrity of the news media. It doesn’t have any! Most of the news media supports communist revolution because many of their talking heads know what it’s really all about. They job is to make sure you don’t know. Alex Newman stated, later in his article what I felt was a good summation. He said: “Simply stated, the riots aim to dismantle American and Christian civilization, and replace them with something new.” Do I need to tell you what the “something” is? I surely hope not because if I do then you really haven’t been paying attention.

And our “institutions of higher learning” have been helping out with the communist revolution also. In an article on https://www.redstate.com for September 4, 2020 they carried an article, the headline for which was Washington and Lee University Offers Course in ‘Overthrowing the State.’ Supposedly this information was brought forward by a student who said “I am completely disappointed with the University’s blatant appeal to Marxism through this class.” He better be careful. If they find out who brought this to people’s attention this student will find himself on the outside looking in! This is what your universities are teaching your kids today–and to think that many of you are paying through the none for this kind of “education.”

Then there was an article on http://www.worldnetdaily.com for September 2, 2020 by Michael Brown which said: “Is it true that leaders of the BLM movement, including one of the cofounders, are calling on the spirits of the dead? That they claim to receive spiritual power from the deceased? That they talk with these spirits and even give them names? The answer to all these questions is yes. This is now an open secret.” Maybe Christians who support the BLM should reconsider that support, lest you find yourselves fighting against God.

Just remember, all this riotous stuff going on today is nothing more than communist revolution and those that support it support communist revolution. And those that refuse to speak up and expose that revolution for fear of being labeled as “racists” are, by their silence, complicit with that revolution.

Public Schools and Communist Front Groups–How one uses the other

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Those who have followed my writing over the years know that I have been critical of the Public School Movement going all the way back to its inception when it was pushed and promoted by Northern Unitarians and socialists.

The public School system has a tradition of weakening the moral fabric of America. This is not to say that all public school teachers are bad people. They are not. I have friends that are or were public school teachers. Several of them left the public school system because they saw where it was going and they didn’t want to make that trip. Today’s article may explain why.

I came across an article on https://thefederallist.com for July 7, 2020 quite by accident but when I saw it I knew I had to comment on it. The title of the article is Black Lives Matter In Public Schools Is Turning Kids Into Little Marxists. Needless to say that caught my eye.

The article noted, in part, that “New York City is one of many school systems in the United States set to roll out Black Lives Matter (BLM)-themed lesson plans this fall. According to the NYC Department of Education, teachers will delve into ‘systemic racism,’ police brutality, and white privilege in their classrooms.”

The article continued: “North Carolina’s largest school system in Wake County launched a website this summer that provides BLM lessons for teachers to use in classrooms and for parents to use at home. Supposedly, they are trying to combat “racism and oppression.” Pardon me, but I am afraid that is so much hogwash! The article stated: “By bringing BLM into the classroom, activist educators are allowing the most radically divisive movement in modern American history to warp children’s worldviews.” And that is what it’s really all about. Real education has nothing to do with it–but teaching the next generation how to be good little Marxists has everything to do with it.

The article noted that “Splashed across the homepage of the Wake County School System’s website is BLM founder Patrisse Cullors. It is puzzling that a self=proclaimed ‘trained Marxist’ such as Cullors, would be a role model for the school system’s anti-hatred, anti-oppression curriculum. Do these school administrators realize that Karl Marx’s road to utopia led to millions of deaths at the hands of tyrants?” While some of them may not, you can bet the farm that those who promoted the use of this program do–and they don’t care. If what they can foist on the children of America promotes Marxism then, in their eyes, it is all justified. Cullors has been noted as a “close ally” of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. She has also been noted, in the New American Magazine as having been trained by Eric Mann, a former member of the Weather Underground that was responsible for terrorist bombings during the 1960s and 70s.So her claim about being a trained Marxist is no exaggeration.

So why does an organization with this sort of background get to insert its agenda into public school systems? My regular readers know why. It’s because the public school system is really not about education. It is about indoctrination–socialist indoctrination for decades and totally Marxist indoctrination in our day.

Textbook protesters opposed this trend in West Virginia back in the 1970s. They were ridiculed and no one paid attention to what they tried to do. Fifty years later the chickens are coming home to roost and those who endorse the public school system are left trying to explain why public schools are using Marxist-oriented materials on the kids in this country.

I have to wonder where Trumps Education Secretary is while all this is going on. Surely she has to be aware, and if she isn’t, then maybe he needs a new education secretary– better yet, maybe he needs to just jettison the entire federal Department of Education.

So now a well known and documented Marxist organization is using the public school system to promote its Marxist agenda. One wonders how long it will be before the public school system itself becomes just one more front organization for the communists.
