“The Vampire” FidoTheCastro has finally faded, but not “his enormous impact”

The true legacy of Marxism is that people dance in the streets when its dictators die, while at the same time its other defeated presidential candidates cause riots in the streets. The truly incredible possibility is that the Clinton/Obama/Sanders/Marx Tribunal for Tyranny cannot actually see the reality of fifty years of Castro’s megalomaniacal reign of tyranny. Indeed, properly stated, this is not-credible, since it is evident to anyone who can see, hear, and understand the facts easily found in free America, of countless political prisoners and deaths, national control of everything in the economy and education that created dire poverty and degradation of human life for all except for those in power.

“The viper” struck at the very life-blood of his own people, exiling nearly a million of them, while at the same time gaining praise from Americans who seem(ed) blind to the horrors. It can really only mean that these American Mercedes-Marxists actually want the same for us, or in the least to reduce America to a powerless player in the world. We can only wonder about their motives, but we do see the realities of their ideologies all around us, and especially in the city-plantations of dependency and poverty and brokenness.

And yet, the praise continues from many corners: The Communist Party, according to The Daily News, says that “Cuban citizens can ‘pay homage and sign the solemn oath of fulfilling the concept of revolution as an expression of the will to continue Castro’s ideas and our socialism,’ the Cuban Communist Party announced” (The Daily News). Unwilling to state the truth about this tyrant, our own President Obama, said in his classic crypto legalese: “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.” Though God of course is this man’s judge, not “history”, can we not at least quite easily judge this wicked man’s ideologies and actions?

Words: choice fruit

Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word spoken in right circumstances. Prov 25:11 (NASB)

A gentle tongue can break a bone. Prov 25:15 (NASB)

A lying tongue hates those it crushes,
And a flattering mouth works ruin. Prov 26:29 (NASB)

The one who desires life, to love and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from spreading deceit. 1 Pet 3:10

Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. James 3:5-6 (NIV)

A man has joy in an apt answer, And how delightful is a timely word! Prov 15:23

An election week postscript on the credulity of the Progressive Mercedes-Marxists in our times who run our cities and control our Federal Government

In our time, in most places on the earth, the Marxist gospel has been spread with a subversive and ruthless sword, but in the constitutional republic of America, thus far, it has largely been advanced with a silver tongue that masks a spiteful heart (to get elected). This mission has been possible without any need for gulags or prison camps. 

In our time, the extraordinary Clinton/Obama/Sanders type credulity is the uncompromising creed that their Socialistic theocracy has relieved poverty, rather than created it. This delusionary belief may, or may not, be sincerely embraced by all who claim it, but its messianic propaganda has been widely received by those convinced that they will be beneficiaries of a benevolent dictatorship of government largesse. For the recipients who follow this doctrine, it is not necessary to understand that state ownership of the means of production, and its massive, forced redistribution of wealth, has in the past resulted in the totalitarian control of everything. Willing converts to this faith frequently discover too late that they have become the property of those engineering the Socialistic reconstruction of the economy, who in the process must create sufficient poverty for the masses to become dependents in a vicious cycle of votes given in order to assure basic needs of food, shelter, health-care, and education.

In our time, these zealous neo-Marxists have in reality created an enormous plantation right in our midst, in nearly every American city, enslaving faithful millions who willingly surrender their votes in hope. Their misplaced hope is of salvation from grinding poverty (even hunger) and social degradation: arguably, the very best products of Progressive ideology. It does not seem to occur to the devotees that their Rulers’ systems are perfectly designed to get the results they are getting, and that all such societies must inevitably perish along with the martyrs to their false economies.

The most bitter venom of these new Master-priests of societal and economic engineering is reserved for any who digress from their orthodoxy, maligning them as those who do not care about the plight of the Progressives’ impoverished and needy congregations. Indeed, they falsely characterize opponents of the socialist faith as enemies of their opiated, dependent millions.

In reality, for all who do care, recent history in the USSR (and China, North Korea, Vietnam, etc.) should remind us that the Marxists there have taught us well how to reduce the majority of the faithful population to abject misery and hopelessness by creating sufficient poverty and total dependency. It hardly needs mentioning that this scenario requires the social engineers of this failed experiment to retain their own great power and prosperity to manage it all. Yet, I am compelled this election week to make note that in America, the most prosperous and free land in history, that these elected Progressives have, right under our noses, created miseries unmatched even in the Communist nations. These sad tales include spiritual, moral, economic degradation, and violence on a scale that only Josef Stalin could fully appreciate. To deny this direct link between their ideology and its fruit is one of the worse kinds of their dissembling; it is not simply disingenuous. In regards to violence, there are hundreds of murders every year in every American, third-world inner-city plantation (the disastrous Progressives’ “Projects”); there has been genocidal violence against millions of their unborn, minority children, intentionally concentrated where the clinics of “termination” are mostly located. Adding further injury, countless families have been divided by the Socialist Welfare policies of cutting off payments when any sign of a male presence is discovered in the home of women with children, further impoverishing the family and destroying opportunity. To cope with their hopeless captivity, millions there have also become addicted to drugs in desperation. Baltimore alone estimates some 70,000 addicts. Is it then not a marvel that anchors on Chanel 11 still gush about a “Baltimore uprising,” romanticizing drug dealers and anarchists who took control of a few of our city blocks for a weekend back in 2015? The dealers strategically targeted and emptied many liquor stores and pharmacies, while the anarchists fomented violence and burned buildings in the name of Marxian theology, dramatically escalating the drug-war casualties since. Is this the best Progressives can offer us? This was no revolution, nor even a “race riot,” in any sense of the word. And those most hurt were the elderly and their neighborhood pharmacies which depend upon a free, market economy, the very front and center object of the attack. Those most enervated and energized were the Leftists-on-the-Street who are the unwitting, prophetic mouth-piece for the theocrats’ Progressive message. True to character, they have sought to revise the facts of reality to assure at the polls that they will retain, and gain more, power for very real oppressors who will continue this cyclic, downward Progress of economic and social impoverishment.

As we go to the polls,
this may sound rather alarmist,
because it is.
