Wish I'd said that!

In recent decades, the ACLU has used its so-called "wall" to fight tooth and nail to prevent government sponsorship of the Pledge of Allegiance, memorial crosses, Ten Commandments displays, nativity scenes, Bible displays, and virtually every other acknowdgement of America's religious heritage.

At the same time, it is worthwhile to note that there have been some instances in which the ACLU has endorsed public displays of religion. For example, When New York City Mayor Rudi Giuliani threatened to cut taxpayer funding from the Brooklyn Museum of Art for displaying a painting of the Virgin Mary with cow dung and pictures of female sexual organs pasted all over her body, the ACLU was first in line to defend the display. U.S. District Court Judge Nina Gershon ruled that New York City's elected officials were not allowed to place conditions on the museum's funding.

In another instance, the ACLU offered its support to the taxpayer-funded National Endowment for the Arts, after the agency sponsored an art show featuring "Piss Christ" - an exhibit consisting of a crucifix submerged in a jar of urine.

In the ACLU's myopic world, it appears that the only permissible publicly-funded displays of religion are those which blatantly mock or disparage the Christian faith.

Playing with matches

As a child, did you ever feel the temptation to play with something forbidden?  Did you, one day long ago, feel the irresistable attraction of a stray book of matches?  Was there a penalty for your impulsiveness; an "accidental" fire as the match fell into some combustible material? (Uh-oh, am I giving too much away?) Did you barely escape real calamity by the "skin of your teeth" or, more likely, by the grace of God?

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people right now who are "playing with fire" without the excuse of youthful ignorance. Rogue politicians (great and small), judges and police are becoming more presumptive and abusive in their actions.  They are attacking faith, families, institutions and small family farms and businesses that cannot afford to defend themselves against the government.  These people know full well what they are doing, and though they would be loathe to admit it their intent is to hurt other people (not so much physically - yet, but morally, economically), lots of other people, and not only get away with it but prosper from it. After all, you can't make a brave new world without breaking a few bodies and souls; might as well get something out of it. Right?

As if there weren't already too many loose cannons running around, now we find  people almost literally crawling out of the woodwork, most of them thoughtless renegades running on little more than impulsive behavior and really bad judgment, totally oblivious to the potentially devastating effects they could have on themselves, their families, and other people they don't even know. 

By all indications, we really have reached, and are tottering beyond, the tipping point. The world as we knew it is vanishing. It has been spoiled or stolen by masters of all things devious, slowly disappearing into a cloud of sub-awareness. The primary culprits are radical Marxists and the incestly-related Progressives, and their primary tools are our youth.  It's all but impossible to ignore; by now even a few politicians appear to get it.

The British riots, the riots in Greecein Spain and other European states, expected riots in Israel, the uncivil wars in Libya and Syria, the Winsconsin state fair wilding; these are all simply exhibits A, B, C, ad infinitum, of the new cultural paradigm: tear things apart, and then....then what?

And that's the real point of the exercise, isn't it? After all the destruction is wrought, after the 'system' has been brought down, after the 'wicked capitalists' have been expelled, after the 'wealthy' (except those on the Left) have been broken through extortion and theft committed under color of law, what's the plan?

Let's play a little game and follow the logical progression and history, since we have that as a teacher, and see where it leads.

Oh, don't worry; there is a Plan.  It just won't involve a whole lot of that equality the protestors are always calling for, because by its very nature there must be a ruling class (the Party) and a worker class (everyone else).  It won't contain much of the justice the downtrodden are looking for, because it will be every man for himself (There are only two ways to get things done in a tyrannical environment: by force or by bribery) and the powerful will do all they can to remain so.  It won't provide much of the protection the fearful are hoping for, because the police and courts will be the most visible components of oppression of the new system. The precursors to the plan have been working their insidious way through the system and culture for many decades.  You just have to take a step back to   see them.

When the radical Left assumes the positions of power that it craves so ravenously, the elites will have no more use for an entire subclass of illiterate, illegitimate, uneducated and (by then) unteachable, useless 'useful idiots.'  With the world in economic chaos and all the threads of capitalism that formerly held it together (whether they're willing to admit it or not) left in tatters, there won't be much left to feed those former tools of the radicals. After all, parasites aren't particularly known for their altruism or generosity, or compassion.  Among the inner cities, much of their former housing will have been reduced to ashes or wreckage in their zeal to please their suddenly invisible puppet-masters (formerly known as 'community organizers'). The new ruling class won't want a lot of eyesores dotting the new landscape.  Frankly, I don't think there will be a lot of patience for millions of nonproductive people with no talent other than making trouble for 'the man' whether it is the old man or the new man.

Ironically, those people will be no better off than a few million conservatives and patriots who resist the not-so-tender embrace of the new world order. First, both groups will be ostracized by the government-controlled media as rabble-rousers and criminals, eventually graduating to merely enemies of the State.  Then will come the disconnect; the cutting of social tethers. The internet and social networks will go silent to stifle mass communication, followed by severe "austerity measures" in the doling out of food and other essentials.  We'll be herded into enclaves where we can be confined and controlled more easily. We may even share the same cattle-cars one day, on a pleasant -although likely crowded - trip into the countryside where there are few witnesses to tell the tale.
