Although the past week has been one of the worst in memory for conservatives -- who have been tarred en masse as, essentially, accessories to murder -- the media have not been as successful as they had hoped in duping the American public. Recent polls show that a large majority of the American people reject the notion that political rhetoric is to blame for the Tucson massacre on January 8. Instead, most people recognize that Jared Loughner has a mental illness, quite likely paranoid schizophrenia.
But does mental illness absolve a person of all culpability? After all, very, very few schizophrenics commit mass murder. And investigators have found notes among Loughner's belongings indicating that his attempt to murder Congresswoman Giffords was indeed pre-meditated.
A friend of Jared Lee Loughner [who] was interviewed in Mother Jones magazine.... theorized that Loughner committed this heinous act “mainly to just promote chaos.... Comparing him to the Joker character in the Batman franchise, the friend said Loughner “f*cks things up to f*ck sh*t up, there’s no rhyme or reason, he wants to watch the world burn."
So is Loughner guilty? Or is he "not guilty by reason of insanity"? A court will decide.
But what about those who plot and plan tremendous evil although they clearly do not suffer from any biological mental illness? I mean those who are in possession of all their faculties, yet choose "to just promote chaos," to inflict grievous harm on others, including murder -- someone such as, say, Bill Ayers.
You can be forgiven if you missed the Larry Grathwohl story about Bill Ayers during the 2008 election campaign. After all, the same media that rushed to accuse conservatives of mass murder this past week did their best, back in 2008, to squelch all the facts about Obama's friend and mentor Bill Ayers, who really was a killer. Grathwohl was an FBI informer within Ayers' terrorist group the Weather Underground back in the 1970s. In the 1982 documentary, No Place to Hide, Grathwohl describes a Weather Underground meeting he attended (at which Ayers was present).
I brought up the subject of what's going to happen after we take over the government. We, we become responsible, then, for administrating, you know, 250 million people.
And there was no answers. No one had given any thought to economics; how are you going to clothe and feed these people.
The only thing that I could get, was that they expected that the Cubans and the North Vietnamese and Chinese and the Russians would all want to occupy different portions of the United States.
They also believed that their immediate responsibility would be to protect against what they called the counter-revolution. And they felt that this counter-revolution could best be guarded against by creating and establishing re-education centers in the southwest, where we would take all the people who needed to be re-educated into the new way of thinking and teach them... how things were going to be.
I asked, well, what's going to happen to those people that we can't re-educate; that are die-hard capitalists. And the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated that they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these re-education centers. And when I say eliminate, I mean kill. 25 million people.
I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.
And they were dead serious.
Let's think about that for a moment. Bill Ayers was one of the individuals sitting there in that room. Even if Ayers was not the one who actually vocalized the plan sketched above (Grathwohl doesn't remember who said the actual words), Ayers was nevertheless one of the leaders of the group and, at the very least, didn't pipe up and object to the elimination of 25 million people (and I know I'm one of those 25 million; if you're reading conservative blogs such as this one, you probably are, too).
This is also the same Bill Ayers who launched Barack Obama's career in public office; the opening fundraiser for Obama's run for the Illinois Senate was held in the living room of Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, who is quite a piece of work herself. In earlier days, Dohrn had been an admirer of Charles Manson, arguably one of the most evil individuals of the twentieth century. Weather Underground and Manson, while having different end-goals, shared the idea that the way to kick off their respective revolutions was to ignite an all-out race war in America.
In 1969, Ayers and his wife convened a "War Council" in Flint, Michigan, whose purpose was to launch a military front inside the United States with the purpose of helping Third World revolutionaries conquer and destroy it. Taking charge of the podium, dressed in high-heeled boots and a leather mini-skirt – her signature uniform – Dohrn incited the assembled radicals to join the war against "Amerikkka" and create chaos and destruction in the "belly of the beast." Her voice rising to a fevered pitch, Dohrn raised three fingers in a "fork salute" to mass murderer Charles Manson whom she proposed as a symbol to her troops. Referring to the helpless victims of the Manson Family as the "Tate Eight" (the most famous was actress Sharon Tate [who was 8 months pregnant when she was murdered]) Dohrn shouted:
Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!
This is not just "another bad thing" that Dohrn and Ayers did..... My point is not simply that "Dohrn is bad, and Obama should not be her friend" [although that is quite a legitimate point]. Dohrn's endorsement of Manson means much more than that. Dohrn's endorsement of Manson is symbolic of the race war that the left has promoted for decades.
Manson used the term "Helter Skelter" to describe his goals at the time of the murders. "Helter Skelter" now has many meanings, as individuals have used the term to describe generally chaotic situations. But Manson had a specific meaning in mind. He planned to use the killing spree to ignite a race war. Manson believed that the Tate murders would be blamed on black people and that whites would retaliate, thus sparking a race war...
What does this have to do with the election of [Barack Obama]? The left has promoted race hostility in every election (including this one), and in every issue, for decades. Since the O.J. trial, the tactic has been called, "playing the race card." But the practice began much earlier than that.
In short, the left and the MSM/DNC have been trying, over the course of several decades, to do what Manson wanted to do with a brief murder spree. The left has simply found a more effective and less obvious way of carrying out those plans. Manson is locked up and forgotten as the deranged psychopath that he was, but the left moves toward the same goals (using slower and surer means). While those on the left (except for Dohrn/Ayers) may not appreciate all that they share with Manson (or even know who he is), the similar goals do exist....The question now arises, what plans does Manson's admirer Bernardine Dohrn have for Barack Obama...?
Remember that Ayers and Dohrn are not simply radicals who live in Obama's neighborhood. Ayers and Dohrn were instrumental in Obama's rise to power and the funding of his early activities and campaigns, including Obama's association with ACORN.
Ah, yes, ACORN. Like so many other leftist organizations, ACORN was the spawn of Saul Alinsky, another chaos-loving radical.
Obama was trained by the Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) in Chicago and worked for an affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation, whose modus operandi for the creation of “a more just and democratic society” is rooted firmly in the Alinsky method.
In the Alinsky model, "organizing" is a euphemism for "revolution"... The goal is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion, and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx, Engels, and Lenin predicted.... Toward that end, [the people] will be apt to follow the lead of charismatic radical organizers who project an aura of confidence and vision, and who profess to clearly understand what types of societal "changes" are needed....
For several years Obama himself taught workshops on the Alinsky method.
It should be more than a little disturbing that Alinsky dedicated his famous manual, Rules for Radicals, to none other than... Satan! Here it is, word for word:
"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer."
Lucifer, so admired by Alinsky (who, in turn, is admired by Obama) is, as Jews and Christians know, the bringer of chaos, confusion, lies, destruction and murder -- all the things that humanity descends into when it rejects the living God.
Is it any surprise that Alinsky also admired Al Capone?
Alinsky came of age in the 1930s and was drawn to the world of Chicago gangsters, whom he had encountered professionally as a sociologist. He sought out and became a social intimate of the Al Capone mob and of Capone enforcer Frank Nitti who took the reins when Capone was sent to prison for tax evasion in 1931. Later Alinsky said, "[Nitti] took me under his wing. I called him the Professor and I became his student."
While we are on the subject of students -- and how evil can be learned -- we need to point out that Bill Ayers is now a highly respected, frequently referenced, and extremely influential figure in the American education establishment, and has been for years. He is vice-president for curriculum of the American Education Research Association -- the people who teach the next generation of teachers -- which means that Ayers is one of the primary people responsible for the school curricula that have so effectively "dumbed down" an entire generation of American schoolchildren, not to mention having perverted school textbooks to cast America and its Founders in the worst light possible, while portraying mass-murderer Che Guevara as a hero.
So let's briefly recap. We have Saul Alinsky, who "apprenticed" with the Al Capone branch of the Mafia and dedicated his "rule book" to the Devil. Alinsky's followers founded ACORN, which trained and employed Barack Obama. Obama's official launch into politics was held in the living room of Bill Ayers -- co-founder of the murderous Weather Underground terrorist group -- and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, who once praised Charles Manson, the mass-murderer. Both the Weathermen and the Manson followers aimed to start a race war in the U.S. to ignite a revolution that would overthrow the United States of America.
And now Obama has been "mainstreamed" as President of the United States, while his old buddy Bill Ayers is "mainstreamed" as a powerful figure in the American education system.
Sounds to me that if Jared Loughner's crack-up and killing spree could be blamed in part on the social or cultural "atmosphere," it would have a lot more to do with the people described above than with Rush Limbaugh or Sarah Palin.
