We Averted Our Eyes

by baldilocks

I’m old enough to remem­ber when I was called delu­sional by an alleged con­ser­v­a­tive for point­ing this out. That hap­pened in 2008.

But I’m cer­tain that Don Surber was point­ing it out back then also. Here he is in a well-​earned I-​told-​you-​so:

Barack Obama is a com­mu­nist. Mild com­pared to Cas­tro or Mao, but nev­er­the­less a believer in state con­trol of everything.

Elect­ing a com­mu­nist pres­i­dent was easy, although it took more than seven decades. While the steps were many — Stalin’s Soviet Union col­lapsed before achiev­ing his goal — the major ones are obvi­ous in hindsight.

The quest began after Stalin stole America’s nuclear bomb secrets. Roy Cohn pros­e­cuted Stalin’s spies. We hanged them.

Stalin got revenge. He placed a big fat tar­get on Cohn, who went to Wash­ing­ton to help Sen­a­tor Joseph McCarthy fer­ret com­mu­nists out of the Army and State Department.

Many peo­ple con­fuse this with the House UnAmer­i­can Activ­i­ties Com­mit­tee, which exam­ined com­mu­nism in Hol­ly­wood. Much ridiculed in the press (even con­ser­v­a­tives mocked HUAC) look at Hol­ly­wood today and try to deny that com­mu­nism lives on in America’s enter­tain­ment industry.

The elit­ists ripped McCarthy, called his quest for the truth a witch hunt, and made his name syn­ony­mous with the type of inves­tiga­tive fish­ing expe­di­tion Bobby Mueller has engaged in.

The net result was you no longer could call any­one a com­mu­nist in Amer­ica. Not even an actual com­mu­nist. We call them lib­eral, pro­gres­sive, social­ist, and even Marx­ist, but never in polite soci­ety may we call them communists.

The down­fall of McCarthy pro­tected the com­mu­nists in our fed­eral gov­ern­ment. We put one — John Bren­nan — as head of our CIA.

Indeed we did. I and many of my old­est and clos­est friends are also old enough to remem­ber when open alle­giance to com­mu­nism was a huge dis­qual­i­fier for any intel­li­gence ser­vice posi­tion, much less DCI.

John­son Amend­ment of 1950 – the polit­i­cal and, more impor­tantly, the spir­i­tual lure used to silence churches, at least the ones prone to engag­ing in wrong-​think aka the undi­luted Word of God.

What gets me some­times is the fail­ure of smart, capa­ble and trained peo­ple to see the century-​long pat­tern of infil­tra­tion, cul­mi­nat­ing with the elec­tion of hard­core Left­ist Barack H. Obama. His rise was the result of the Orga­nized Left’s patient effort to turn this coun­try into the crown jewel of com­mu­nist achieve­ment. The Great Bat­tle Won. But the Orga­nized Left began the cel­e­bra­tion too soon and got cocky. And now we are see­ing the after-​action reports that they couldn’t keep hid­den. But they never did try to hide. Not really.

Many of us never did want to see. Still don’t.

I’m old enough to remember when I was called delusional by an alleged conservative for pointing this out. That happened in 2008.

But I’m certain that Don Surber was pointing it out back then also. Here he is in a well-earned I-told-you-so:

Barack Obama is a communist. Mild compared to Castro or Mao, but nevertheless a believer in state control of everything.

Electing a communist president was easy, although it took more than seven decades. While the steps were many — Stalin’s Soviet Union collapsed before achieving his goal — the major ones are obvious in hindsight.

The quest began after Stalin stole America’s nuclear bomb secrets. Roy Cohn prosecuted Stalin’s spies. We hanged them.

Stalin got revenge. He placed a big fat target on Cohn, who went to Washington to help Senator Joseph McCarthy ferret communists out of the Army and State Department.

Many people confuse this with the House UnAmerican Activities Committee, which examined communism in Hollywood. Much ridiculed in the press (even conservatives mocked HUAC) look at Hollywood today and try to deny that communism lives on in America’s entertainment industry.

The elitists ripped McCarthy, called his quest for the truth a witch hunt, and made his name synonymous with the type of investigative fishing expedition Bobby Mueller has engaged in.

The net result was you no longer could call anyone a communist in America. Not even an actual communist. We call them liberal, progressive, socialist, and even Marxist, but never in polite society may we call them communists.

The downfall of McCarthy protected the communists in our federal government. We put one — John Brennan — as head of our CIA.

Indeed we did. I and many of my oldest and closest friends are also old enough to remember when open allegiance to communism was a huge disqualifier for any intelligence service position, much less DCI.

“Yeah, churches, Ah fooled yew, too!”

Johnson Amendment of 1950 – the political and, more importantly, the spiritual lure used to silence churches, at least the ones prone to engaging in wrong-think aka the undiluted Word of God.

What gets me sometimes is the failure of smart, capable and trained people to see the century-long pattern of infiltration, culminating with the election of hardcore Leftist Barack H. Obama. His rise was the result of the Organized Left’s patient effort to turn this country into the crown jewel of communist achievement. The Great Battle Won. But the Organized Left began the celebration too soon and got cocky. And now we are seeing the after-action reports that they couldn’t keep hidden. But they never did try to hide. Not really.

Many of us never did want to see. Still don’t.
