THE REVOLUTION . . .
If--or when--a civil uprising should ever come to these United States again, from whence will it originate? Civil unrest--revolution--usually originates in the minds of intellectuals. Civil unrest must have an ideology behind it--ideas--and these spawn in the fertile minds of the intellectuals.
People who are --who must be--concerned with staying alive, concentrate on their work, leaving little space for idle cogitating. The mind of the intellectual, is constantly beset by feverish activity to solve the problems of existence he/she sees around him/herself.
Intellectuals are commonly thought to belong to the progressive part of the public--the Left. But would it be Leftist intellectuals that strike the spark that lights the flame of liberty?
REVOLUTION FROM THE LEFT
Sara Robinson in her article When Change Is Not Enough: Seven Steps to Revolution appears to believe so. Revolution, if it were to come, would come from the Liberals--led by such as Obama. Obama? Liberals? But aren't they for gun control? For "multiculturalism," the opening that our enemies, determined on taking over the United States for Islam, are using to subvert our laws and establish Islamic law--sharia--to replace the Constitution and make it irrelevant?
Any Revolution emanating from the Left--with a leadership such as Obama--Afrocentrically oriented, would be determined to turn the the society upside down--that is to let the bottom classes rise to the top and make what are now the upper classes subservient to them.
Yes, we have these types of Revolutions today, Hugo Chavez's in Venezuela was such a one. Not entirely bloodless, but nothing like a civil war and he has the country in the grip of a Socialist regime--just as Castro has done with Cuba.
The "disposessed" rise to the top--are in control--via a benevolent (to them) dictator.
A Revolution that emanates from the Left, would most likely end in a Socialist dictatorship that could easily slip into the grasp of the Islamics and end with these latter triumphant.
REVOLUTION FROM THE RIGHT
We have an ever-increasing polarization in the United States. There are those that are open to the Islamics taking over (the Left) and those who are determined that they will not (the Right). Who will win?
The late George Mason said:
I think that the jihadis will feel so emboldened that they will bring their destructiveness to our homeland. I also think that will be their undoing because I think Mr. and Mrs. Average American will clean them out of America.
What really concerns me, however, is that this may well precipitate another civil war within America. That war will pit those of the Left (the anti-Americans) against those of the Right (the pro-Americans). Wars may be necessary occasionally, but they are never good. Even the best have a real Pyrrhic victory quality to them. Recovering from a civil war would be as horrible as having one. George Mason http://sixthcolumn.typepad.com/sixth_column/

A New Civil War Approaches
It should frighten the living hell out of you to realize that, in America, right now, you are living in a cultural milieu horribly similar to that of the Weimar Republic, which made the ascendancy of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis inevitable. If this does not frighten you, then ask yourself whether you can afford to remain ignorant any longer.*
* Leslie White says re the Weimar Republic, remember the following:
History is not a recipe book; past events are never replicated in the present in quite the same way. Historical events are infinitely variable and their interpretations are a constantly shifting process. There are no certainties to be found in the past.--Gerda Lerner at WHY MOSLEMS CANNOT LEARN ANYTHING FROM HISTORY ________________________________________
America’s culture today comes from its fifth column, made up of America’s Left and its more recent allies, the jihadists. This fifth column intends to bring down America. If you do not understand these groups and processes, you will live to see America’s collapse and its conversion to a totalitarian state, quite possibly even an Islamic one.
Fortunately, there is a cure.
In this article, I emphasize the book, Ominous Parallels: The End of Freedom in America (by Leonard Peikoff; Stein and Day; New York; 1982; ISBN 0-451-62210-3). The author is a professional philosopher with a gift that enables him to speak and write so that intelligent people, not formally trained in philosophy, can understand him and apply what he says directly to their lives.
This truly great book spells out what happened to Germany and above all, WHY it happened. It also spells out how and WHY America has been following Germany’s path and grows dangerously close to the immediate pre-Hitler period of the Weimar Republic. It is these “whys” that make this book uniquely and extremely valuable, and it is the quality of its ideas and their presentation that separates it from all other books which have unsuccessfully tried to account for the reasons for the rise of Nazism.
The current Democrat Party of the USA, straight out of Ominous Parallels, has bedded and wedded the new totalitarians, the ones described so well by David Horowitz recently in Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left (Regnery; New York; 2004; ISBN 0-89526-076-X). [On this website, I have recently reviewed the Horowitz book. BOTH BOOKS COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER WELL.]
It Can Be Stopped, Reversed, Even Cured
There is a permanent cure.
Getting to the correction of our drift as American Weimar into American Nazism, Leonard Peikoff states:
“What fundamental truths did the Nazis and the American collectivists and all their sources in the history of philosophy struggle to evade and annihilate? The answer is contained in two concepts, with everything they include, lead to, and presuppose: reason and egoism. These two, properly understood and accepted, are the immovable barrier to any attempt to establish totalitarian rule.
“Reason destroys fear; egoism destroys guilt. More precisely: reason does not permit man to feel metaphysically helpless; egoism does not permit man to accept unearned guilt or to regard himself as a sacrificial animal.” (302)
All of these virulent socialists have reemerged from the collapse of the old left and old communism to form what Mr. Horowitz properly calls the “neocommunists,” or “neocomms.” The neocomms, however, have devolved from their pining for the new world order of old communism to raw nihilism—destruction of everything. Their goal is to destroy America and everything it stands for, and now they have new partners.
The new partners are the Islamic jihadists, who want exactly the same thing: The destruction of America and all it stands for. This is the hardcore FIFTH COLUMN, with many strap-hangers along for the ride. This is the UNHOLY ALLIANCE David Horowitz presents. And, hold your hats, the Unholy Alliance is WINNING. If we don’t get off our derrieres, we are going to be herded into a totalitarian state worse than any of those in the 20th century, and we will be bowing to Mecca five times a day.
The Unholy Alliance members are organized, and they are speaking with one voice, from one sheet of paper, as the expression goes. We Americans are not organized, nor are we speaking from the same sheet of paper. We are divided, in part by the effect of our own ignorance, direct effects philosopher John Dewey unleashed on American education (from K-12 and through all of the teachers colleges, and into the university system), and the total takeover of academia and all media by neocomms. In short, we are facing a principled and consistent leftist alliance combating US, an under-principled and very inconsistent America and West. If we do not become fully principled, and very consistent in their application, we will lose to this new Fifth Column.
Unholy Alliance rips the scab off the neocomm-jihadist fusion and exposes it to the light of truth in a short, easy to digest, and potent book. You cannot read this book and stick your head in the sand again. You cannot read this book and try to find middle ground or otherwise compromise with your destroyers. You can read this book and get up fighting mad and ready to fight effectively for America.
David Horowitz grew up in a household with American communist parents, and he became a communist. In the 1960s, he became one of the neocommunists and remained one into the 1970s until he got a blinding flash of reason and realized the logical consequences of his allegiance and behavior. Because of his past, however, he knows these people in and out. He can tell the tales better than anyone else around. When David speaks, we should listen.
American intellectuals embraced communism and the Soviet Union in the 1920s and 1930s with a blind adulation that makes me want to vomit. World War II killed communism as a movement, and Stalin’s excesses grossed out even the communists and comsymps or fellow travelers. Communism after WWII ceased as a movement. Subsequently, the failures of socialism around the world became obvious even to the left, and it died also as a movement but not as a force still exerting influence by default. The death of old communism left many ideologically homeless. These homeless did not blame the failed ideologies at all. As Ed Asner said on the radio, they said that the practitioners had failed, not the ideology—the ideology had not been practiced correctly, they firmly believed and believe. This is a major thought disorder neocomms have in common, and they cannot be persuaded from it by reason any more than a schizophrenic can be reasoned out of schizophrenia.
These ideologically homeless coalesced into the New Left, or neocommunists. They retained their love for totalitarian (“utopian”) ideas and their hatred for America and capitalism. Their practice became “creative destruction,” a concept stolen from capitalism and perverted to mean “nihilism.” They hate the present and live in the future. They want to destroy the present world. They hate reality—the world as it IS. They actually believe that they have to destroy America to make it well, which is warmed over Marxism. Believe me, there is nothing original with these people. Their primary goal is NIHILISM, destruction for the sake of destruction, sweetened with some pie-in-the-sky future fantasizing about eventually finding their utopia of no needs, no wants, no differences, no poverty, no wealth, no disruptive progress, and just static ecstasy— like Islam’s Paradise. For now, they want nihilism, hating the good for being good, like Islam.
Neocomms began populating academia in the 1970s, becoming a major influence in academia in the 1980s. By the turn of the 1990s they had taken over the academic fountainhead. It was they who launched “political correctness” and “multiculturalism.” It was they who played the race and gender cards in every contest, no matter how inappropriate. It has been they who took over the minds of the "humanities" graduates, journalists, and politicians. They have successfully bullied the morally uncertain, who now bend obsequiously to political correctness, to get their way. That is why we have this epistemological, moral, and political relativism mess today.
Neocomms really believe that they had been given a green light during the tenure of the Clinton administration, when they felt their kind had come into their own, in and out of office. They proliferated during this period, inserting themselves into every nook and cranny in America that they could. (A Kerry presidency would have utterly revitalized them, and they would have had carte blanche to damage us terribly during his presidency). They took over the Democrat Party and began converting it to what it appears to be today which looks more day by day like America’s Nazi party, replete with Brown Shirts and Brown Skirts, even involving a number of rank and file Democrats who became “Kristallnachters” during the 2004 election season, and even after the election. They have sought and crave power wherever it could and can be begged, bought, or stolen. Like jihadists, they need raw physical power to survive.
Meanwhile, in 1979, Khomeini in Iran launched the jihadism we face today, financed by Iranian oil, aided and abetted by the Sunni Wahhabists in Saudi Arabia, with the consent and funding of the Saudi regime. Islamic nihilism burst onto the world.
Since 11 September 2001, the neocomms and the jihadists in America fused to achieve the same symbiotic end. The two are almost indistinguishable in content, rhetoric, and behavior. As a result, we have a ferociously dangerous FIFTH COLUMN in America and throughout the West. We have organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union, National Lawyers Guild, and Center for Constitutional Rights, ANSWER, Not In My Name, Code Pink, AFCSME and other unions, and many others, linking with the United Nations, Council for American-Islamic Relations, Muslim Brotherhood, Muslim Students Association, Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and many others. Some of these names are from the book, and others I have added because of their obvious neocomm-jihadist orientation. Joining them are strap-hanger Fifth Columnist comsymps in the Democrat Party such as Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and the Democrat Party dumpling, Michael Moore, as well as almost half the U. S. Senate. The bulk of American journalism—print and broadcast--vibrates in sympathy and support, and almost all of American education at all levels dances to the neocomms-jihadist tunes. This is not “conspiracy theorizing.” It is fact, and Horowitz proves the case.
Their plan is first to paralyze America with legal and moral-appearing means. Then they will move in to kill the paralyzed beast of America.
Mr. Horowitz makes the case and names the names. He threatens this fifth column so much that they have launched a campaign to discredit him and this book. Just that behavior alone should make you run out and buy the book.
The final chapter concerns secessionism. To the neocomms-jihadists, the goal is to destroy patriotism so that the citizens can secede from the ideas of and the physical existence of America. Read it for yourself. Mr. Horowitz quotes these people liberally here, and throughout the book, because they mince no words about their ideas and intents.
We who love individual freedom, capitalism, and the Constitution of the United States have a clear obligation to defend our values. We start by erasing ignorance and sharpening our awareness. While doing this, we become activists. We start pushing back--in the press, on the air, and in every way we can.
We fight back with the correct intellectual ammunition. Our ideas are better, and we must make them highly visible and dominant. This book is a valuable piece of that intellectual ammunition. Never forget that they are winning, NOT BECAUSE THEIR IDEAS ARE BETTER, but because they are being consistent. Our ideas are better, and with consistent application of reason, we will win.
David Horowitz is the President of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture and editor of Frontpagemag.com, an on-line magazine, which receives over 4.5 million page views a month. He has spoken at more than 200 colleges and universities, and has appeared on Nightline, Crossfire, Today, Good Morning America, C-SPAN, CNBC, Fox News Channel and CBS’s This Morning, and gives hundreds of interviews yearly on radio and television. He has authored numerous books and has started organizations to restore free speech to academia and to correct the drift of the Democrat Party to the aggressive socialist left.
Now that the Leftist anti-Americans have been raked over the coals, let's tackle the jihadists and what they face in the United States.
This what a Texan has to say about the Islamic jihadists' future fate in America:
"They[Europeans. ed] try to integrate with Muslims, they are accepting terrorism and bowing down to the sheiks." Yep, they are trying to intergrate WITH the Muslims, instead of the other way around. You know, the time honored way, where the immigrants intergrate WITH the inhabitants of the country that they migrate TO. Another clue: "You are the same flesh and blood they are - today's Germans are no more and no less capable of genocide than you or I." Yea, we all are from the same blood, but as you know the human race as a whole is a murderous, barbaric bunch. It always has been. Its not any different today, its the same blood. The culture in different areas of the world dictate how thick the membrane is between the barbarian and the civilized person. Or how he reacts to danger. Does he call the police, or does he pick up a gun and confront the danger? Even here in these somewhat United States, the culture differences are easy to spot. If you have been around this Republic or have put some study into it, you will know that Americans as a whole are made up of many cultures, but because of their "Americanization" (is that a word?) they are not like your average [e]uropean (old or new). When you cross over into the south and southwest of this Republic, you have no trouble seeing that these people are really friendly. But if you study people, like some do, you might pick up on something else. "These" people are survivors, the membrane that seperates them from the barbarians is thin, thinner than in other parts of this Republic and much thinner than some parts of the world. So, yes, some Americans are more capable of genocide than other Americans and Germans. Where I live, the most important thing is survival of the family, our children and our women. Nothing is higher than that except God. Our country comes right after our family and way before our lives. Yep, we are willig to die for our country and for our families, but we don't intend to. We intend to make the Islamics die for their Allah. They seem to want to get there so fast, we will be glad to send them.

how will a Revolution in the US affect internal Islamics
and US foreign policy as concerns the Islamic world?
This is not an Islamic weapon.
About the kukhri or better Khukuri, the weapon of Nepal's Gurkhas (pictured above),
KAPHAR HUNNU BHANDA MARNO RAMRO
"IT IS BETTER TO DIE THAN TO BE A COWARD"
The last thing an enemy of the Gurkhas hears is,
the gurkhas' war cry
"THE GURKHAS ARE UPON YOU!"
Right below, I am repeating the story of what happened to Moslems in Nepal when their ideological compatriots killed a group of Nepalese workers in Iraq. It is the old "do unto others as they have done unto you,"
A correspondent from India wrote:
"Let me point out another recent [written in 2005] incident
As you know muslims in Iraq have been kidnapping and beheading foreigners
About 3 months ago, they beheaded 12 Nepalese hindus
In response, muslims in Nepal got a 'Gujurat^type reprisal'
( about 30000 Nepalese muslims got ethnic cleansed by Nepalese hindu mobs )
and no more Nepalese have been kidnapped in Iraq
Whereas they non-stop behead western hostages"

OK, each time the kukhri is drawn it must be fed blood, right??? If theres no one around or they escaped or something they need to drawn blood, so they slice their own skin just a little to keep the tradition going.
Not true, its an urban legend which the media likes to include whenever they write something about the Gurkas.

Drawn from personal experience:
Yes, but unless some care is exerted when unsheathing this weapon, it is "fed some of your blood" without you realizing that your thumb has been neatly sliced open. I suppose you can then go around saying that as you had unsheathed the weapon and had not met an enemy from whom to draw blood, you had to follow an old Gurkha practice--to explain why your thumb is copiously bleeding.
