Trump may be only hope of saving us from progressive despotism

To The Daily Sun,

"The Devil's Pleasure Palace," a book by Michael Walsh that came out last year, talks about the origins of political correctness, which his research shows can be traced to Karl Marx and the Frankfort School. Yes I know, our beloved "leftist scholar" James Veverka, recently alluded to the notion that Marxism is dead and gone in this country. Yeah sure James, speech codes, safe zones, microagressions and intolerance of opposing views on college campuses must therefore be a tool of the conservative right.

Marxism was all about a philosophical and ideological assault on Christianity, capitalism, traditional family values, sexual morality and patriotic nationalism. Marxism was and is an all out assault on Western values. Marxist theory is alive and well, especially in our nation's universities.

As we now know, far too many of those Frankfort school leaders who went into exile, became professors in our universities. Columbia University is a prime example of the deep roots of Marxism so alive and well in our country today.

Wayne Allen Root graduated with a degree in political science from Columbia in 1983, just as President Obama did, but he was able to survive the progressive stench that swirled all around him. Obama learned his lessons well through folks like Francis Fox Piven and Richard Cloward and of course Sal Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." Also a favorite read of one Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Hillary and Barack are just two paradoxical examples of people who despise the very same capitalist system that has made them rich and will continue to do so, in and out of political office. The left is littered with many thousands of paradoxical hypocrites who have become wealthy by a system they seek to destroy.

Ah yes, Columbia University, home to such marvelous professors as unrepentant domestic terrorists, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. Also home to professor Nicholas De Genova who once told 3,000 protestors, in the wake of 9-11, he "wished for a million Mogadishus and that peace would have no place in America," according to David Horowitz.

Marxist-stylized professors abound across America and I have listened to some such as Cornel West and Marc Lamont Hill on Fox News and talk radio. Hopefully, fellow Weather Underground Marxist terrorist Kathy Boudin is not still teaching young millennials how to hate America and love Marxism/socialism. And please, let's not forget the loathsome Ward Churchill, former 17-year professor at the University of Colorado Boulder who mercifully got exiled from academia for saying that the victims of 9-11 were "little Eichmanns."

Yes, some of these professors are no longer teaching, and some now teaching are not as radical, but rest assured that those now retired have been replaced by a new generation of Marxist-loving, America-hating professors.

Herbert Marcuse's writings, one of the Frankfort School leaders, provides all the insight anyone needs to understand why the left and all of its progressive followers lust to destroy this country's Judeo-Christian principles while also lusting to gain ever more control and power over us, while claiming to own the mantel of moral superiority.

Marcuse writes regarding the left, "They would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion . . . Liberating tolerance then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left."

Folks, please do not get caught up with all the distractions created by the mainstream media, universities, the entertainment industry and the Marxist, socialist-loving Democratic Party. It is the ideology or religion of the left in this country, over the past 100 years, that sadly has had more impact than Christianity has had, as it seeks to suffocate all freedom of religion and speech except that which comes from Islam and the left.

To all of you on the right who believe that we can suffer through four years of Hillary Clinton's continued progressive assault on this country and live to nominate a "true conservative" in 2020, you are playing with fire. Please think about what another four years of "fundamental transformation" coupled with the election of radical Supreme Court justices will do to a country already teetering on the brink of chaos and dissolution. Please think long and hard before you sit this election out, the most important one of our lifetime. The next time may be too late to find that so elusive, yet perfect conservative, "stand on our principles" nominee.

Donald Trump may be more like "Bullworth" than Ronald Reagan, but there is a good chance he will be our only hope in saving us from the tyranny of progressive despotism. What Tocqueville wrote about in referencing the "soft tyranny" of the left, is already here.

The time grows very short in order for us to restore our national sovereignty. Please do not fall for the soothing promises of free stuff delivered by a benevolent nanny state. That is nothing more than the delusional dreams of Marxist progressives who only care about more wealth, power and control for themselves, while delivering totalitarian rule for a complacent citizenry.

Believing in free college education for all and $15 minimum wages for all is to fall for the false promise of Cloward and Piven. Those would be the Marxist professors who promised to create a crisis by overloading the welfare system and then tell folks, your government will now deliver to you a guaranteed income and an end to all poverty. Please connect the dots and vote while you still are at liberty to do so.

Let's convene a committee to come up with more unenforceable rules

To The Daily Sun,

So many letters about the Free Nipplers. So much indignation. If I write to lampoon these letters inspired by those fiercely defending their provincial values in some towns within the near 100 mile radius of South Station, where most residents are Boston-centric rather than Portland-centric in their TV viewing habits, I will be attacked as supporting these women in their "civil rights" demonstrations.

What if most of us are just ambivalent to these women and their campaign? I say civil rights as loosely as one recent letter used the term "private beach" for a beach owned by a town and administered to by the town's Park's and Recreation Department.

Then we have the provincials teaching their children that something is "dirty." So we must "protect" our children from the prejudices we instill in them? Any school field trips to Washington must make clear that no children will be permitted to go into the National Gallery?

In the end as I understand it these women simply want the one single word "FEMALE" removed from public ordinances. If that is accomplished I am not so sure they would continue in their salacious demonstrations? For the ambivalent it little matters or will long be remembered as to when these people will finally prevail in advantaging their constitutional rights.

For now I commend the local authorities for not wasting even more valuable taxpayer dollars trying to confront rather than defer to these activists and their agenda. The initial official law enforcement response to these ladies was due to another town that has a tax cap, not responding to complaints at the more regionally recognizable high profile Weirs Beach. So they took their act to the "public beach" in Gilford, which got even more results than they perhaps initially expected. Gilford responded with two cruisers to take down these heinous bad actors. The town then filed some charges and went on to lose their case in court.

Gilford does need some maintenance to the high school track facility another public facility that the locals also use for exercising. So many other worthwhile projects are in need of funding. Money that could go to these kinds of worthwhile expenditures should continue to be squandered to defend provincialism?

Back in 1984 I picked up a local newspaper and saw on the back page that the new film "Give My Regards to Broadway" was now playing at the Colonial Theater. I just saw that as being ignorant if not also provincial to advertise a movie called "Give My Regards to Broad Street," in that manner. Maybe the newspaper or the sponsors of the ad were just a little too much provincial in illustrating their ignorance for the arts.

In the end, these women will likely continue to prevail in court as for asserting their 14th Amendment rights. Personally I hate the 17th Amendment that ended our republic. Some hate the First and Fourth Amendments as much as they love the Second and 10th Amendments. Some cannot even make up their minds as to what part of the Fifth Amendment they love or hate the most. It is too bad we cannot govern by selectively picking the parts of the U.S. Constitution we most like and would best suit our sustaining our provincial values.

The more letters we see in the papers, the more TV news stories we see on MUR and BIN, the more the notice there is of these heinous bad actors, the more they will be successful in advancing their agendas, by drawing ever more public attention to themselves. People are demonstrating all of the time and the passersby may be honking for the costumes they may be wearing or the flag they are waving instead of or as much as for the agendas their signs are communicating.

Clearly somebody has to do something about these courts protecting everyone's constitutional rights? The Town of Gilford should likely convene a committee to study what courtship rituals of the Homo Sapiens going on, on Gilford beach need to be identified as also being immoral, so we can enact some more unenforceable rules?
