You Were Warned 50 Years

The Daily Rant: Black Conservative Mychal Massie's Hard Hitting Commentary on Race, Obama and Politics

“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” –Vladimir Lenin

In the first edition of this three-part series I asserted, as the title suggests, that America was clearly warned about the Marxist agenda that has been systematically infused into the fabric, foundation, and functions of the nation by the adherents of communism in America. That warning came more than 50 years ago this year on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives from a courageous Florida Congressman.

In that first article, I delineated 15 of 45 goals of the then underground communist movement the Congressman laid out in his speech. In this edition, I want to enumerate the next 15 of those goals (prefaced by the preamble of the official record). Space will allow me to comment on only one of those goals in this edition, save for repeating the overall comment I expressed in the previous edition, which is the sad fact that, as you will see, nearly all 45 goals of the communists’ agenda delineated in the Congressman’s speech could be tagged, “Fait accompli!”

Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963


Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]

[1 through 15 delineated in the previous article]

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. [Too many incidents of this occurring to enumerate, but perhaps the most seminal was Roe v. Wade that occurred exactly ten years later, and then there are the many rulings legalizing homosexuality/gay unions and other sexual deviancy. –Ed.]

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”[end excerpt from record]

What I want to comment on here is the above goals that relate to the nation’s public education system.

Most Americans have been totally oblivious to the fact that for more than a century going back into the mid 1800s a sophisticated and highly-systematized all-out and very successful battle has been transpiring for the hearts and minds of America’s children. Though it is guerilla warfare that has been engaged, the battle has been conducted right under Americans’ collective noses, with not only their moral support but their colossal financial support from both massive private contributions and government funding. Moreover, the battlefield on which this extended and expensive war has been waged is the American public education system.

It’s consisted of one of the hugest and longest-lasting scams and acts of national theft that has ever been perpetrated against any nation. The perpetrators have, until recently, with little resistance, swindled the American people out of untold myriads of millions of dollars of their own, hard-earned, money to capture the minds of multiple generations of innocent and unwitting children and delude them into utterly turning against their country, their parents, their ancestors and forefathers, and the core beliefs and ideology that made this nation the greatest in human history, long before they were even a glint in their parent’s eyes.

The horrific and unthinkable consequence of that insidious ideological and philosophical conflict is the topsy-turvy world we now live in, in which everything we have ever known to be right and good is now considered wrong and evil, exactly as the Bible predicted.

The communist manifesto prescribes that in order to thoroughly socialize a nation to communism, the Marxist state must take control of the nation’s children from birth, and through Marxism-steeped “education” based on sophisticated “thought-control” convert every child to become an indoctrinated automaton of the state that when you push its talk-button it automatically dispenses the humanistic, godless, mindless, and diabolical diatribe contrary to all that is right and good with which its mental hard-drive has been programmed.

The Marxist mindset considers every child born the chattel of the State, who must be “socialized” via state-controlled education in order to indoctrinate the child in the atheistic, amoral, communistic philosophy in which God is non-existent and replaced in the hearts and minds of the citizenry by the god of self, and all God-worshiping “religion” (what Marx famously called “the opium of the people”) is supplanted by the polar opposite religion of self and the worship of self—i.e., humanism—the religion of narcissism. All that accomplished, the collective “worldview” of the entire nation only a few generations hence then comports perfectly with the doctrines of communism in which God is debunked and de-deified in the minds of the people and Man is deified. The government is then the de facto god of the nation, and the people look to it to provide all sustenance of life.

In identifying only a few of the pillars of the new education philosophy I begin with the systematic revision of American history to demonize and discredit the image and philosophies of the great men who we consider the Founding Fathers of this great nation. Great nations become great only by the contributions of a great citizenry, and America has received the magnanimous beneficence of many of those through its rich history. So, to socialize a nation, you must malign and repudiate those founders and contributors.

Moreover, you must discredit and debunk all the great elements of American society and life that have made it great, as well as devalue the very concept of exceptionalism that marks all that is “American.” Anti-American and anti-capitalism are mainstays of the curriculum that is aimed at undermining the core values and strengths of the nation.

Individualism must be discouraged and disallowed, because the basis of communism is collectivism. Individuals must not be allowed to think for themselves, but rather independent thought must be replaced with group-think and collective homogenized reasoning that accommodates and is geared toward all that is considered “good” for the masses, even if individuals are maltreated in the application of this universalized one-world mindset. Personal thinking is intolerable and not tolerated, though communal toleration of all that fits into the communistic bailiwick is not only encouraged but required, and punished if violated.

All this (and of course much more than what can be addressed here) are characteristics of the curriculum that has now been insidiously instituted in our public schools, with the dastardly result that the public education system in America has become the laboratory for the creation of human automatons of the Marxist nanny state America has become.
