Dupes: How the Communist Left Has Manipulated the Progressive Left for a Century [Video]

Via The Institute of World Politics:

On Monday June 29, The Institute of World Politics welcomed Dr. Paul G. Kengor to discuss the topic of his recent book, Dupes: How the Communist Left Has Manipulated the Progressive Left for a Century. He presented aspects of his extensive research on the role of the “dupe” in modern American history, exploring how many progressives have been manipulated to aid the communist agenda.

While “dupe” may initially sound like a derogatory or rude terminology, its usage actually has historical and biblical precedent, noted Dr. Kengor. It was utilized throughout the Cold War by the Soviets as they developed a propaganda strategy to sell communism to the Western world. A dupe is an innocent individual with no malicious intent who is manipulated to aid and abet the opponent unwittingly. Because the progressive left ideology was most similar to that of communism, they were found to be an easy target for deception. In the 1930s, the United States Communist Party amounted to less than 100,000 people. In need of larger numbers to gain any sort of political leverage, communists resorted to duping progressives in an attempt to take down the West through cultural disruption.

Dr. Kengor’s first example of such a case was John Dewey, otherwise known as the father of United States education and renowned as an influential progressive icon. Coincidentally, the Bolsheviks were also great fans of Dewey’s work, and used his teachings as a blueprint for the Soviet educational system. Beginning in 1918, at the height of the Russian Revolution, Dewey’s books began to be published in Russian. The admiration between Dewey and the Russians was mutual, and in the 1920s he made a pilgrimage to experience the Bolshevik culture himself. He was reportedly “impressed by the orderly and safe characteristic of life in Moscow”, saying that life goes on with “regularity, safety, and decorum” following the “great success” that was the Bolshevik Revolution, just as the Soviets had hoped.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was similarly taken by the display of the Potemkin villages created by the Soviets. Sanger was actually a proponent of birth control for the purpose of racial eugenics, and met with the KKK on several occasions concerning the potential for “racial improvement” via birth control. In the 1920s, the Soviets legalized both abortion and divorce and the rates of both skyrocketed. The number of abortions was appalling, said Dr. Kengor, but the Soviets claimed that as soon as their economic and social plans were realized, birth control and contraception would be unnecessary. Sanger fell for this logic, believing that a functioning communist society would ensure the happiness of every child, effectively acting as a dupe for communist ideals.

Dr. Kengor next addressed Frank Marshall Davis, a mentor to Barack Obama in the 1970s. According to Kengor, Davis joined the Communist party in Chicago following the Hitler-Stalin pact and testified concerning their activity in Congress in the 1950s, providing advice and influence tainted by the Communist party agenda. Kengor also cited the American Peace Mobilization in Chicago in 1940 as an organization which similarly has a progressive left façade but is run by communist undercurrents.

In the question and answer period Dr. Kengor responded to concerns about numerous and at times controversial topics. Among these were the application of his ideas to issues recently highlighted by the media, including the racially motivated shootings in Charleston, the erosion of the traditional marriage structure by the recent Supreme Court decision, the manipulation of mainstream media for various political agendas, and the goal of effectively demonstrating Christian charity.

Dr. Kengor is a professor of political science and the Executive Director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. He is a New York Times bestselling author of multiple books, his articles have appeared in various publications, and he has frequently contributed to MSNBC, C-SPAN, NPR, the BBC, PCN-TV, EWTN, and FoxNewsChannel. He is a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University, and holds a doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs and his Master’s degree from American University’s School of International Service. He is well-known as an authority on several subjects including Ronald Reagan, the Cold War, and Communism.

Today’s Progism

By: Brent Parrish

Prog-Parrot

Have you ever noticed politically correct progressives consistently claim they speak for all the American people?

Consider the following Tweet from ToastyPoptart—who I have no doubt is toasted, both literally and figuratively:

Toasty-Tweet

The irony in the above cartoon is that P.C. progressives will rarely tell you what they stand for; instead, they will only tell you what they stand against. But, of course, the P.C. progressive will accuse their adversaries of being against everything they hold dear and stand for–abortion, illegal immigration, pseudo-science, racism, etc.

Fixed it:

Liberal-Cartoon-Fixed

The funny thing about the positions they do stand for is that they are really positions that stand against something, i.e., the rule of law, racial harmony, religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, etc. It’s very difficult, if not impossible, to get a P.C. progressive to take a firm position on anything; unless it’s a position that is against something. Try it sometime. It’s like trying to nail jello to the wall.

Prog-Thoughts

Of course, one of the tried and true tactics of your run-of-the-mill P.C. progressive is to accuse others of the very same things they themselves are doing. Some might call it “projection.” I call it the “strategy of projection.” For example, the national debt has increased by over eight trillion dollars on Barack Obama’s watch; but Obama accuses the Republicans of trying to “wreck the economy.”

In a related vein, cognitive dissonance among P.C. progressives often times reaches mind-numbing levels. For example, many, if not all, of today’s social justice warriors (SJWs) believe the police are “evil and racist”; but the same SJWs will insist you don’t need a gun because you have the police.

When it comes to the P.C. progressive’s kinky fetish for hypocrisy, I can’t put it any better than Oleg Atabashian of ThePeoplesCube.com fame:

The Six Contradictions of Socialism in the United states

  1. America is capitalist and greedy; and yet half the population is subsidized.
  2. Half of the population is subsidized; and yet they think they’re victims.
  3. They think they’re victims; and yet their representatives run the government.
  4. Their representatives run the government; and yet the poor keep getting poorer.
  5. The poor keep getting poorer; and yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
  6. They have things people in other countries can only dream about; and yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Don’t expect your average SJW or P.C. progressive to ever confront their inconsistencies or rationalizations; otherwise, they wouldn’t be SJWs or P.C. progressives. They are reflexively conditioned (see Pavlov’s Dog) to deny everything, admit nothing, and to make counter-accusations. Try it sometime. (Pro-Tip: Instead of ringing a bell, try shouting a Marxist slogan or using the gurgling, bubbling sounds of a bong.)

Now, in closing, I won’t be so presumptuous to say that I speak for all the “American people.” But I will go so far as to say I think there are more than a handful of Americans who are “over” the P.C. progressive “shit.”

The Council Has Spoken! Our Watcher’s Council Results — 08/28/15

The Watcher’s Council

Black-Lives-Matter-Caption-This

BLM-conditions

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.” – Booker T. Washington

“We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.” – Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia

“Bad schools, crime, drugs, high taxes, the social security mess, racism, the health care ? crisis? unemployment, welfare state dependency, illegitimacy, the gap between rich and poor. What do these issues have in common? Politicians, the media, and our so-called “leaders” lie to us about them. They lie about the cause. They lie about the effect. They lie about the solutions.”
– Larry Elder

This week’s winning essay,Puma By Design’s Black Lives Matter Hypocrites Oblivious to Epidemic of Black Violence, Genocide is a forceful eloquent takedown of the hypocrisy of the #Black Lives Matter movement. Here’s a slice:

Last Wednesday night, after returning from a birthday party, Jamyla Bolden, was sitting on her mother’s bed doing her homework when someone walked up to their house and fired five shots into the home killing 9 year old Jamyla and hitting her mother, Kendric Henderson, in the leg.

St. Louis Dispatch:

They also believe the shooter stood close to the front of the house and took aim through the bedroom window. There were five visible bullet holes on the exterior of the house: three in the screens of two windows with shattered glass behind them, and two more in the house’s aluminum siding….

‘When I turned her over I could see the blood coming out of her nose, but I didn’t know where she was shot at. I kept saying ‘I think she’s been shot, call 911,’ Henderson said.

Grieving the loss of a friend, one of Jamyla’s fourth grade classmates asked, “Why did she have to die.”

Where is the outrage?

Where is the Black Lives Matter movement?

HELLO? I CAN’T HEAR YOU, fake Black guy, Shaun King, DeRay McKesson, leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement!

Nothing, just CRICKETS.

The night after Jamyla’s ten-year-old brother witnessed the death of his sister; more than 150 people lead by Black Lives Matter took to the streets of Ferguson to protest the death of an armed black teenager shot and killed by two officers last Wednesday.

According to police reports, just two police officers were preparing to serve a warrant, two black teenagers, armed and in possession of crack cocaine made a run for it out the back door of the home.

The officers pursued the teens and after being ordered to stop, 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey (above) refused to drop his gun when ordered to do so, may have even pointed the firearm at the officers and it was a wrap.

NYDN

Ball-Bey was fatally wounded and pronounced dead at the scene while the second suspect, only identified as being in his mid to late teens, managed to escape, police said.

Police say they found a stolen gun and an extended magazine in Ball-Bey’s possession and that four guns and an unspecified quantity of crack cocaine were recovered at the scene. Several others inside the home were taken into custody without incident….

As usual, Ball-Bey’s death presented opportunity for those with a nefarious agenda and instantly became the next battle cry from Black Lives Matter to create abut chaos, riot, tear and burn down that, which has not yet been rebuilt after they incited last year’s riots that all but destroyed the city of Ferguson, Missouri.

There are elements in the Black community who will white wash an individual fundamentally transforming a thug into a martyr but depending on whom one asks, it has yet to be determined whether or Ball-Bey fits the bill.

According to Ball-Bey’s family, he was a good kid but the following video in which Ball-Bey, a gangster rapper, consorted with gang bangers, possessed guns and bought into the gangster mentality might imply otherwise. (Warning: Raw language)

Video: St. Louis Grandmother Who Slammed #BlackLivesMatter Responds to Her Critics

Peggy Hubbard had a very strong emotional reaction (see here) to so-called “Black Lives Matter” protesters rioting in St. Louis over the recent shooting of a black 18-year-old male, who reportedly was in possession of a stolen handgun and fired at police officers executing a warrant for his arrest; while the same protesters were eerily silent over the murder of a nine-year-old girl in Ferguson who was murdered in her home during a drive-by shooting while she was doing homework at her kitchen table. It outraged Hubbard activists protested for “the thug,” but not the little girl.

Hubbard was asked during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon how she would respond to her critics. Her response? … “Bite me.”

Well done, Peggy … well done.
