When the government fears the people

29 Jan. 08,       2014 05.54“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

– Thomas Jefferson

Given the stunning advances Western society made over the last hundred years both socially and technologically, most Americans grew up with the belief that things would always “turn out for the best” in the long run, and this was a chief underpinning of our worldview. Despite having fought such foes as Adolf Hitler and weathered the prolonged tensions and fears of the Cold War, even these had come to inspiring conclusions. I think that until very recently, few Americans ever considered a fundamental paradigm shift for the worse.

Our positive worldview has been a two-edged sword of sorts. On the one hand, it tempered our resolve and conviction; when you believe you’re going to win, it can go a long way toward manifesting that victory. On the other hand, given such an outlook, one – or a nation – might get lulled into a false sense of security. I believe that this is, in part, precisely what occurred with regard to the American people and the enemies from within against whom we are now engaged.

We believed that given the promise the future and our aggregate potential held, and our ability to contribute to the betterment of those around the globe, who would even want to stand against us?

Those who have a desire to foment or prolong human suffering – that’s who.

Anthea Butler: Typical Raggedy Communist

antheabutler1It is a matter of public record that in the last century, the goals of American communists were to insinuate themselves into academia, the press, and politics. So, communists began to infiltrate academia, and obviously they were very successful. As David Horowitz has written at length, New York-based communists in the New York public school system laid out a plan for reworking school syllabi and social engineering that began with America’s children. This model became the template for public education throughout America’s public schools, most notably in large urban areas.

At the college level, of course, Marxist professors began to churn out Marxist-indoctrinated graduates, and – more importantly – even more communist professors. Many of these were schooled in concepts of “Social Justice,” which gave rise to “Liberation Theology” and “Black Liberation Theology” as crafted by James Cone. Since the 1960s, there has been an influx of these so-called educators, some of whom went into the fields of Religious Studies in order to lend legitimacy to their radical views. Thus, they have been able to indoctrinate university students and subvert the mainstream Christian Church at the same time.

This has brought us to the point where we have former terrorist and convicted murderer Katherine Boudin holding a professorship at New York’s Columbia University, and such notables as former domestic terrorist and Obama pal Bill Ayers, Angela Davis, and Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones) in similar positions.

“God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. As a black woman in an [sic] nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god. As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.”

–          Prof. Anthea Butler, July 15 2013

Which brings us to University of Pennsylvania’s Professor Anthea Butler who, in a July 15 blog post, argued that God must be a “white racist god” due to the not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. I reprint this in its entirety not only to illustrate what passes for a university professor these days, but to underscore the twisted and heretical views of these Marxists who masquerade as theologians.
