I for one
am appalled at the spectacular event that happened at Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. this past weekend.
The picture shows thousands of protestors of the Obama Administration holding placards; some depicting him as Adolph Hitler others with icons of a monkey! The group seems to have been deceived into believing that the economic situation in the country is the fault of Obama. Nothing could be further from the truth! He inherited the financial ruins of the Bush/Cheney years and is attempting the impossible task of putting Humpty-Dumpty back together again!
I have since learned that Mormon Glenn Beck was the instigator of that mass gathering. The fact that Glenn Beck spouts off extreme right wing inflammatory rhetoric similar to that of Rush Limbaugh, supports my allegations in past articles that while the Mormon Church ostensibly abandoned racism when it caved into my pressure against their position in 1978 concerning Black priesthood, that racism is still deeply embedded in the Mormon psyche.
Social segregation is still practiced at Brigham Young University. And the Genesis Group of Black men within the Mormon Church continues to exist to gain communion not shared with racist Mormons.
It would be appropriate that the Mormon Church censure Beck or at least make a public statement rebuking any vestiges of racism within the church. It would be most appropriate that they publicly work to snuff out those vestiges among their own congregations!
I would estimate that if one could have walked among that crowd and solicited an identity as to religious affiliation that at least three fourths of them would claim to be Christian!
Yet they cannot be Christian or they would know for a fact that the first organization of Christianity under the Apostle Peter was a communistic society for, "they had all things in common." "Things" meaning property which they shared equally. (Acts 4:22) If one reads the entire chapter it would appear as though God wanted that commitment out of the early church for he put to death a husband and wife who lied to Peter about having consecrated their all to the Christian Commune. Either that is true or the Gospel writer is a liar!
The boasted claims of the historical past of democracy winning over Communism in regards to the Soviet Union's collapse is a complete lie for it was not democracy but capitalism that won the struggle. Not only did capitalism win against Communism, but it made damn sure that the cost of winning was applied against the wealth and freedom of Americans by placing a humongous debt on American Taxpayers as the price for the delusion.
Corporate greed has no conscience whatever!
Corporate capitalism is a dictatorship that regards humans as a dispensable resource commodity which it manipulates to achieve its bottom line profits. If it could totally manufacture products and deliver services with robots it would have no conscience whatever if unemployment were 25% of the population as long as it could make a profit (not likely)!
Strange that Capitalism in the form of Insurance-Corporate Greed can organize so many people to show up and participate in a gathering in opposition to the interests and welfare of other people including themselves. One can only deduce that those people are not only ignorant but have the intellectual capacity of robots programmed to self destruct!
What could only be worse was if all those people spent their own money making the trip to Washington with all that implies to demonstrate against their own personal "Christian" ethics.
To confuse Adolph Hitler with Socialism is the height of ignorance; He was a fascist corporate-loving monster with a hatred for communism (socialism).
Some examples of socialism in our country that work are:
