Opinion by John Tutten:
Ben Carson in his speech at the Republican National Convention provided a sharp contrast between America as constituted and the America the Democrats are endeavoring to transform us into.
Carson had the temerity to shine the light on our current president’s and his desired successor’s mentor, Saul Alinsky, and his game plan for the dissolution of our country as founded. He accurately stated that Alinsky dedicated his subversive tome, “Rules For Radicals”, to none other than Lucifer:
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins—or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.”
(Note that newer copies are being published with this dedication omitted.)
Carson expertly made the point that our founding principles were based on unalienable rights that come from a creator God. This is clearly stated in our Declaration of Independence, enshrined on our currency, and recited as part of our Pledge of Allegiance.
Yet, Carson pointed out that the Democratic Party is abandoning the objective truth that has made this country the greatest in human history and instead, are pursuing its destruction via Alinsky’s methodologies that are the antithesis of a healthy functioning republic. Open debate and objective reasoning are being replaced with deceit and character assassination. Free speech and liberty are attacked by political correctness, agitation, and the incitement of discontent. Alinsky was right to dedicate such drivel to the Father of Lies.
The reaction of the sycophantic mainstream media to Carson’s comments was predictable and humorous. Cries that the Republican campaign became a witch trial or that Republicans say Hillary is a demon lover were typical. Why were they in such a lather over Carson’s citation? Methinks they dost protest too much. Could Alinsky’s tip of the hat to Lucifer have a more sinister implication?
Now I really don’t believe Obama or Clinton are consciously working to bring about Lucifer’s kingdom here on earth (but he does do his best work with oblivious drones, right?) I know some of you will debate that, but I doubt that they (or Alinsky) have spent significant time contemplating the spiritual side of existence. Rather, Obama and Clinton are consumed with their own power and aggrandizement in the here and now.
However, we should not just dismiss Alinsky’s reference to Lucifer or Satan as simply a literary flourish. Alinsky’s as well as Obama and Clinton’s Marxist ideology springs from the demonic heart of its founder, Karl Marx, who was indeed a Satanist. Followers like to characterize Marx as an atheist, but he very much believed that God existed and positioned himself vehemently in opposition to Him.
Marx was an ardent, pious Christian as a very young man but something happened to him by the time he reached eighteen that turned him staunchly against God. He wrote after his satanic revelation that: “I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above.”
Many on the Left like to characterize Marx as an irreligious socialist. However, Marx cared little about humanity and righting the wrongs of society. He was driven to rid the world of God and it was only later that he seized on socialism as a method for enticing people into his anti-religion efforts. His true desire was destruction – destruction of God’s creation:
“Then I will be able to walk triumphantly,
Like a god, through the ruins of their kingdom.
Every word of mine is fire and action.
My breast is equal to that of the Creator.”
(This quote taken from Richard Wurmbrand’s “Marx & Satan”.)
Marxism is not based on a desire for man to live equitably and peacefully. Marxism was established to enslave and destroy. It was founded on a virulent hatred of humanity and God its Creator. Everywhere Marxism has been installed poverty, misery and death follow. No amounts of money or refinements or enlightened thinkers are going to change this result.
Marxism is the destination the Left is driving for and Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” is the vehicle to propel America there. Our current president and possibly our next are steeped in the poison prescribed by a man that hated all that is good and right.
If we allow the next Clinton presidency, we will see the hostility against religion ratcheted up. Last year at the Women In The World summit, Hillary made it clear that religion must yield to her twisted ideology:
“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
Whether you acknowledge the spiritual side of existence or not, Marxism is a despicable and destructive ideology that must be stamped out. We have one political party that embraces it and one that does not appear to understand what it’s up against. It will be up to “we the people” to preserve our blessed republic.
