If anything proves that the OpEdNews website is a bastion of liberal kooks, this “editorial” by Rafe Pilgrim sure gives it the stamp of kookiness:
Obama’s masters exert more powerful influence upon him than we do, that is those of us who are aware of the subversion. “Their” support and machinations gave him his job and will gild his future. All that is required of him is his loyalty to “them.”
In summary, what all this means is that we can’t get from where we are to the truth of 9-11, the truth of the motivation to attack on Iraq, the trashing of our Constitution, etc, then on to decent governance without first assembling the forces necessary to move those issues onto America’s agenda, an agenda that will be disallowed by incumbent power unless forced otherwise by citizen action.
I mean its pretty much standard level BDS and 9-11 Conspiracy, but this one thing caught my eye. Mr. (Ms? It?) Pilgrim asserts the following:
History presages four possible variations of fate for our future, here listed in order of decreasing attraction:
(1) An epiphany that finally gifts the citizenry with the insight into the rottenness of our governance and the necessity to change such by direct passive action such as their massive (millions) enduring presence (weeks, months, however necessarily long) at the seat of government (DC) and not to leave until peace and decent governance are assured.
(3) Armed action against America by the decent governments of the world who will have lost patience with the treachery wrought internationally by our government.
(4) Probably the worst of all the possibilities: things would not change but achieve a rotten permanence or perhaps get even worse.
Really? Revolution? This from the bunch that wets themselves at the very thought that something as horrible as a gun exists in the universe and he thinks that a bunch of hippie-dippie kooks will actually start a revolution in America? Maybe a revolution of hernias at people laughing at the idea of this group of twits doing anything but gazing at their own navels.
Here’s an obituary from the Democratic Communist People’s Republic Pravda:
Third-party political activist Peter Camejo, a perennial candidate for state and national office who helped pioneer the financial market niche of socially responsible investments, died Saturday. He was 68.
He helped found the California Green Party in 1991 and ran three times for governor of California. He also ran as independent Ralph Nader’s vice presidential running mate in the 2004 presidential election in which President Bush won a second term. In 1976 he ran for president as the Socialist Workers Party candidate.
Mr. Camejo described himself as a watermelon – red on the inside, green on the outside.
OK – so here’s somebody who was admittedly a Communist/Socialist – who actually RAN as the Socialist Workers Party candidate for President in 1976. Now who was running from the Democrat side in 1976? Here’s a little tidbit from the current Socialist Workers Party obit:
Peter used the campaign to fight for the idea that the great historical stumbling block to the building of any genuine revolutionary alternative organization was the misplaced hope that the Democratic Party could be taken over by the left and used as a vehicle to advance toward socialism.
Surprisingly, even among socialists in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s, this idea was in the minority, as the Communist Party, many Maoist groups and the forerunners of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)–Sen. Bernie Sanders being their most prominent member–backed Democrat Jimmy Carter for president.
So this person who believed that the Democrats were too “reactionary” to implement a true revolution in the United States then does what? Well, first he decides to get a job with Merrill Lynch:
Matt Gonzalez, a former San Francisco supervisor who is running for vice president with Nader as an independent, said that Mr. Camejo once told him that when he interviewed for his job at Merrill Lynch, “the only thing that was true on my resume was my name and phone number.”
And he ended up his life as a capitalist fund manager – but it was GREEN!
Mr. Camejo earned his living as a financier and helped start an investment firm, Progressive Management Asset Inc. in Oakland. Clients can arrange their portfolios so that their investments, for example, are not linked to animal testing, weapons or sweatshop labor.
So we say adieu to someone who provably spent his life working for the overthrow of America and Democracy. And please note – founder of the California Green Party. A self-described Watermelon. Thereby giving us further information about why opposing the EcoFreaks is also a good idea.
Someone who’s whole life was given over to everything I personally oppose. And will continue to work in opposition.
And this self-described environmentalist fraud and communist is lauded in the pages of a “major” newspaper? Sort of tells one where their sensibilities lie too.
