The View From 1776

Liberal Jihad Against Christianity

Liberals have never been content to live and let live.  They have always worked to destroy existing society.

It started with the French Revolution in 1789.  Radicals destroyed the monarchy, wiped out most of the aristocracy, confiscated the Catholic Church’s property, made priests and nuns paid employees of the political state, and took control of education so that nothing but the doctrine of socialism could be taught.  To quell resistance they instituted the Reign of Terror, slaughtering more than 70,000 dissidents.

The English Fabians at the end of the 19th century were more subtle, but held that same long-term goals: discredit Christianity and promote state take-over of the entire economy.  American liberal-progressive-socialists pursued the Fabian tactic of creeping socialism, accelerating the pace with Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal in the 1930s.

It’s as obvious as a train wreck that liberals can’t institute a socialist make-over of our government without dismantling the Constitution’s original structure and intentions.  Doing that has required only judges and bureaucrats who reinterpret the general directives of the Constitution without reference to their original intent.  There was no need to undertake the process of amending the Constitution in accordance with its Article V provisions.

Franklin Roosevelt put it this way in his 1933 inaugural speech, Our Constitution is so simple and practical that it is possible always to meet extraordinary needs by changes in emphasis and arrangements without loss of essential form….

Since the late 1960s student radicalism, the left-wing have become more openly aggressive.  Don Feder, a former Boston Herald writer who is now a political/communications consultant, describes the propaganda and speech-control tactics of the anti-Christian left in The Times, “Fascists,” and the Religious Right, which can be found here.

Some excerpts:

Breezing through the bookstore at Reagan National Airport the other day, I came across a new volume with the intriguing yet subtle title, American Fascists ? The Christian Right and The War on America by former New York Times’ correspondent Chris Hedges. But, as the saying goes, tell us what you really think.

No hyperbole here. In the introduction, Hedges makes it clear that he actually is comparing evangelical opponents of abortion and gay marriage to the monsters who burned books, ran death camps and plunged humanity into a world war that left 63 million dead…..

Colorado Senator Ken Salazar has called Dr. James Dobson and Focus on the Family “the Anti-Christ of the world” (for demanding that he vote to end the filibuster of Bush judicial nominees). Senator Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, labeled Christian broadcasters “sort of our homegrown Taliban.”......

In a profile piece in The New Yorker, Al Gore compared the faith of George W. Bush to Saudi Whabbism. In its May 2005 issue, Harpers Magazine ran a cover story titled “The Christian Right?s War on America.”.....

And, last fall, seminal political thinker Rosie O?Donnell instructed viewers of ABC?s “The View,” that “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state…...

Ask yourself: Over what institution does the left exert the greatest control (even more than over Hollywood and the news media)? Answer: Academia. Now, what institution most closely resembles a police state in its posture toward dissent? Same answer.

At American colleges and universities, Christian student groups are being told to renounce their principles or lose official status.

Conservative newspapers are burned. Conservative speakers are shouted down or assaulted with impunity. Students who vigorously challenge leftist dogma are suspended or expelled. Professors are denied tenure for failure to parrot the party line.

If you?d like a preview of an American fascist state, look at higher education. If Hitlerism ever comes to America, it won?t be marching with crosses and Bibles, but mouthing the platitudes of multiculturalism (cultural Marxism), while goose-stepping to the beat of Sgt. Pelosi?s PC Band…..

The original lie of the Left is that America was a nation founded on a secular worldview ? one nation under who-knows-what, with liberty and justice for all. The monumental task of historical revisionism started 60 years ago and continues to this day….....

Alexis de Tocqueville didn?t write for the New York Times. But this early 18th century theorist identified the source of America?s greatness, when he wrote: “In the United States the sovereign authority is religious?there is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than in America, and there can be no greater proof of its utility and of its conformity to human nature than that its influence is powerfully felt over the most enlightened nation on earth.”
