As is said, history repeats. Similarly, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Indeed, there is no better illustration of the aforementioned than what is taking place at this critical juncture in time. A nation on the brink.
That being established, before a particular historical comparative analysis can be fully appreciated and understood, it is imperative to note the timing of the uptick (emphasis placed) in wild and “in-your-face” incitement to domestic terrorism; that which was stoked to the nth degree under the two-term reign of HUSSEIN Obama, an avowed Marxist and Islamist. By the way, said ideologies are not mutually exclusive, rather, they converge in their hatred of freedom-based ethos, as well as in their totalitarian methodologies.
In fact, as a precursor to the charges within, the following (which was written in April 2013, out of a long compendium of analytical proofs) is a jaw-dropper, thus, to be utilized as a stepping-stone from yesteryear to the here and now.
Back in March 2013, I received a shout-out (one out of a very long list) from the publishing team of “Bringing Down America: An FBI Informant with the Weathermen (by Larry Grathwohl and Frank Reagan) to write its maiden review. Now, never having been in contact with this outfit beforehand, apparently, my “reputation” precedes me – or, so I am told. In any case, its essence couldn’t be more timely; a barometer and harbinger of things to come.
American Thinker, Bringing Down America: A Review
BRINGING DOWN AMERICA: An FBI Informant with the Weathermen, by Larry Grathwohl and Frank Reagan, originally published in 1976, is being reintroduced in 2013. Its introduction is written by Dr. Tina Trent.
During a dangerously volatile period of domestic terrorism, young anarchists were plotting the upending of America. In the vanguard stood the Weather Underground and the Black Panthers. Implanted in 1969 in the heart of a revolutionary movement, Larry Grathwohl, a 22-year-old Vietnam vet, found himself acting as an FBI informant. Inserted into the Weather Underground organization under deep cover, he became privy to their terror plots as well as the leadership’s “reasoning”. It is this facet which still resonates today. BRINGING DOWN AMERICA is a gripping tale of plots and subplots, each one aimed at “the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie [and] the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat”, as Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and Jeff Jones exhorted in their 1974 manifesto, “Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism.” The subtext of this gripping memoir is brought to the fore in Chapter 14: “The Cover Is Blown:
“Once in the van we drove around the city… while we were driving Maynard & Green (my FBI handlers) began telling me about the mystery man waiting for me. He was an Arab guerrilla. My meeting was to be in strict confidence. They refused to tell me why he was in the country, how he got in, obviously he was working for the U.S….”
The implication was very clear. The FBI understood that the Weathermen were deepening their foreign ties. It was inevitable that Arab terror contacts would be made. Thus, Ali Baba, an Arab informant, was sending a warning to Larry: having him as a “go-between” would mitigate any hesitation to cooperate with the Weathermen, in effect, keeping the FBI one step ahead.
Not only that, Ali Baba issued other warnings to Larry: “the Arabs plan to strike at the next Olympic games in 1972 [reviewer’s note: and they made good on their threat] and there is talk of doing something at the World’s Fair in Spokane in 1974.”
For the record, El (Al) Fatah was the referenced Arab guerrilla group. Yes, the very same terror outfit spawned by the godfather of suicide terror, “Chairman” Yasir Arafat, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. In tandem, the Weathermen conspired with the KGB and attendant communist regimes. The war being waged against the U.S. by the radical left and Islamist jihadis is premised on the U.S. as the Western spear and Israel as its twin “imperialistic” cousin. It has been playing out for decades, in one form or another. Nothing has changed other than the fact that many escaped justice and are entering their senior years. Despite their advancing age, they are as dangerous as ever — perhaps more so. Bill Ayers, the foremost leader of the Weathermen “is in his third decade as a national leader in the movement to radicalize the educational training of schoolteachers”. His wife, Bernardine Dohrn, a top leader too “is a professor of law at Northwestern and a high-ranking officer in the American Bar Association.” Eleanor Raskin (ne Stein) “is a law professor at S.U.N.Y Albany and, astonishingly, a NYS administrative law judge”. Jeff Jones “currently heads the New York-based Apollo Alliance, a highly influential coalition of labor leaders and environmentalists, and was responsible for drafting President Obama’s 2009 Recovery Act.”
The list of “respectable” cover, of other “notables” in the Weathermen, is equally impressive. Through a stringently planned operational “stealth jihad”, yesteryear’s Weathermen have returned, fully primed to carry out their original goal — the “transformation” of Amerika. Most significantly, they subvert the national interest from a distinctly dangerous vantage point. They are currently ensconced in some of the most powerful positions in academia and political life. The only difference is, this time they are dressed in “capitalist” garb, not only in their clothing choices, but in the wealth they have accumulated, paradoxically, through joining the “establishment”. Who said one can’t enrich oneself, but at the same time deny the masses/proletariat said wealth potential? Highly dangerous in their bomb-making days, their capacity to cripple America, sans firing actual weaponry is that much greater at this critical juncture in time. Deeply involved in the “transformation” process, as promised by President Obama, many of them working inside the executive branch, while others operate through progressive think tanks, they want nothing more than to distance themselves from their bloody past. Therefore, an omerta has descended from the denizens of the leftist media and their powerful organs.
So the timing of this book release couldn’t be more prescient. Although the mainstream media will surely attempt to shield the aforementioned from the facts borne out by the record, they are nothing more than “koshered” domestic terrorists.
Many westerners believe that history is behind them and therefore has no relevance to their lives. Nothing could be further removed from reality, or more deadly. In this regard, stepping back in time to the late 1960s and into the 1970s couldn’t be more imperative or instructive.
Readers, the dots from “Bringing Down America” must be deemed a direct bulls-eye from the very same 1960’s/1970’s revolutionary continuum – straight into the heart of the here and now, as elucidated within “On Pretext of Justice for ‘Tray’, Race War Ignited, Courtesy of Obama Inc.’s Shock Troops: White Teens Murdered in the Crossfire.”
In reality, to those who see America’s foundational roots as a beacon for liberty (despite a plethora of dismal leadership…nary a statesman in the crap-laden bunch), HUSSEIN’s domestic incitement was never in question. However, it wasn’t until six months into his second term that Obama Inc.’s laid groundwork (again, during his first term) came to fruition.
As is known, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Resultant, it was during the very same six months that a “gift” came his way, thus, HUSSEIN latched onto what should have been a policing and investigatory matter, the death of Trayvon Martin, to set the national stage for racial unrest – the likes of which had not been seen since the 1960’s/70’s. Not only that, he used his bully pulpit to stoke the embers for an actual “war on cops“- with the intent to ignite facts on the ground toward total anarchy. Moreover, as expected, Tray’s death was followed up by a full-throated call for gun control. Imagine that. Incontestably, time and again, the (former) Radical-in-Chief incited (and continues to) to domestic terror!
All of which has now come full circle; a tipping point within America. A time that future generations may very well cite as the nation’s second civil war.
Mind you, if additional heft is needed to document their present-day deadly intent, look no further than to the actions taken by James Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old volunteer in Bernie Sanders’ campaign, when he opened fire on GOP lawmakers practicing for their annual baseball game with the Democrats! For heaven’s sake, is nothing off base….
In this regard, recall when House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was wounded (June 14, 2017), almost mortally, at the GOP outing. If not for the quick response of Scalise’s security detail – having prevented Hodgkinson from carrying out a mass atrocity – the result would have been far worse. Never mind the attacks on others, including, Senator Paul Ryan while mowing his lawn! Yes, his attacker, a neighbor, according to The New York Daily News reported that a Facebook page for Boucher contained numerous postings critical of US Republican President Donald Trump. Sounds familiar?
But to speak truth to power, it must be shouted from the rooftops: without the (fakestream) media’s complicity (in the forefront stands Facebook/social media, online mainstream so-called news sites, and print alike) it wouldn’t have been mandatory to assert – at the onset of Trump’s presidency – in February 2017: “Demsters/Leftists/Islamists – Via Fakestream Media – Incite to Civil War & Murder Alike Due To Trump’s Lawful Orders.”
Still, if more proof of the same is required, that’s okay.
Ipso facto, ALL Trump voters/supporters are “fair (target) game”, as are his associates on Capitol Hill – in whatever capacity they may be.
Most significantly, said revolutionary tactics were founded and schooled by Saul Alinsky – the godfather of radical politics via grass roots rebellion, and, none too incidentally, the founder of “community organizing.” Trenchantly, his work is the template/blueprint for all the mayhem. In fact, he was an organizational (rabble-rousing & evil) genius, to the degree in which TIME Magazine (in 1970) had this to say, “It is not too much to argue that American democracy is being altered by Alinsky’s ideas.”
To wit, as my April 2, 2013 book review “Bringing Down America” more than proved, just as in the 1960’s/70’s (the Weathermen were led by Bill Ayers –HUSSEIN’s buddy from the Chicago ‘hood) when countless campuses and beyond across America were on fire, so too the nation is now ablaze. Mirror images.
Know that the exact same blueprint is their bible; yes, Alinsky’s 13 “Rules For Radicals” is the founding document which outlines the steps they are taking to (purposefully) precipitate an upcoming civil war. Ignite.
Demonstrably, how else can one explain the usage of “Rule Number 13” (1- 12 as springboards) in today’s fiery arena, as targets are picked, frozen, personalized, and polarized. Think: the incitement of “Mad Maxine Waters” (and many others), and the immediate knock-on effects to Kirstjen Nielsen, Sarah Sanders and others associated with “Trumpian” views of America!
RULE 13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame. The real action is in the enemy’s reaction. The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.
Coincidence? In a pig’s eye.
More specifically, anyone in their right mind – no pun intended – who believes that the likes of Hamilton Nolan, a senior writer at Splinter News (which is under the direct ownership of Fusion Media Group – a division of Univision, a leftist biased conglomerate – having tasked Splinter to “amplify underrepresented voices, shine a light on systemic inequality, and skewer politicians when necessary as well as contextualize current events, challenge archaic establishments, and champion the historically oppressed”) is not in a position to “read the radical tea leaves” is, simply, delusional.
So, via his perch at Splinter – in his very own rabble-rousing, revolutionary, words:
“Do you think that being asked to leave a restaurant, or having your meal interrupted, or being called by the public is bad? My fascism-enabling friends, this is only the beginning,” writes Splinter senior writer Hamilton Nolan.
Pointing to history, he writes that the U.S. “had thousands of domestic bombings per year in the early 1970s.”
“This is what happens when citizens decide en masse that their political system is corrupt, racist, and unresponsive,” says Nolan.
“The people out of power have only just begun to flex their dissatisfaction. The day will come, sooner that you all think, when Trump administration officials will look back fondly on the time when all they had to worry about was getting hollered at at a Mexican restaurant.”
He reasons that when “you aggressively f— with people’s lives, you should not be surprised when they decide to f— with yours.”
History repeats. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Then, as in now….
