Neocons: The REAL Commies


#1

I have to tell you, not that I'm overly thrilled with Obama, but lets set the record straight on the TRUE "Commies".

What's hilarious (very sad really) is how the Republicans willingly go along with the "Neocon doctrine" and never once realize that Neoconservatism was born directly from Communist ideals.

The very founders of Neoconservatism are ACTUAL Marxists and Trotskyists for cryin' out loud!

The neocons know their followers are either extremely stupid or blind followers, and they relish in the fact that they can get them to rail against Communism while simultaneously getting them to support their latest Communist/Fascist/Zionist amalgam called Neoconservatism.

The Fraud of Neoconservative "Anti-Communism"
It is a well-established fact that many of the early luminaries of neoconservatism (most famously Irving Kristol in the 1940's, a more recent famous example being David Horowitz) came from Marxist backgrounds, and that neoconservatism (like Marxism itself) began and continues to be largely a phenomenon of Jewish intellectualism...

Irving Kristol (born January 22, 1920) is an American philospher, considered the founder of American neoconservatism. He is married to conservative author and emerita professor Gertrude Himmelfarb and is the father of William Kristol....

Kristol was born in Brooklyn, New York City, into an orthodox Jewish family. However, he maintains that belief had nothing to do with his family's observance. He earned his B.A. in History from the City College of New York in 1940, where he was an active Trotskyist. Before graduating, he met Gertrude Himmelfarb at a Trotskyist meeting, and they married on January 18, 1942. He wrote in 1983 that he was "proud" to have been a member of the Fourth International in 1940....

Kristol suggests of himself, "Ever since I can remember, I've been a neo-something: a neo-Marxist, a neo-Trotskyist, a neo-liberal, a neo-conservative; in religion a neo-orthodox even while I was a neo-Trotskyist and a neo-Marxist. I'm going to end up a neo-that's all, neo dash nothing."

In July 2002, President George W. Bush awarded Kristol [the Communist] the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The Fourth International (FI) is an international communist organisation which opposes both capitalism and Stalinism. Consisting of followers of Leon Trotsky, it is dedicated to helping the working class bring about socialism. [Irving Kristol, founder of American neoconservatism, proud to have been a member]

Godfather' Kristol's Statist/Imperialist Manifesto
Irving Kristol, who identifies himself as the "Godfather" of neoconservativism, is finally beginning to come clean and admit what neoconservatism stands for: statism at home and imperialism abroad.

Trotskyism is the theory of Marxism as advocated by Leon Trotsky. Trotsky considered himself an orthodox Marxist and Bolshevik-Leninist, arguing for the establishment of a vanguard party. His politics differed sharply from those of Stalinism, most importantly in declaring the need for an international proletarian revolution (rather than socialism in one country) and unwavering support for a true dictatorship of the proletariat based on democratic principles.

Trotsky was, together with Lenin, the most important and well-known leader of the Russian Revolution and the international Communist movement in 1917 and the following years.

Leon Trotsky was born Lev Davidovich Bronstein

Karl Heinrich Marx (May 5, 1818 - March 14, 1883) was a German philosopher, political economist, sociologist, humanist, political theorist and revolutionary credited as the founder of communism... His father, Heinrich Marx (1777 - 1838), born Herschel Mordechai, the son of Levy Mordechai (1743-1804) and Eva Lwow (1753-1823), was descended from a long line of rabbis but converted to Lutheran Christianity

So the next time you read the latest news from the Weekly Standard (editor Bill Kristol) or post that article from FrontPage Magazine (editor David Horowitz) -- consider the background.....

David Joel Horowitz (born January 10, 1939) is an American conservative writer and activist.

David Horowitz was born in 1939 to a Jewish family in Forest Hills, a neighborhood of the New York City borough of Queens.

His parents were long-standing members of the Communist Party. While still identifying as a Marxist, Horowitz, like many other left wing figures of his generation, sought to distance himself from the Soviet Union. In the 1960s he was employed as a political aide to Bertrand Russell. At this time, Horowitz was a close friend and associate of Marxist historian Isaac Deutscher. Horowitz wrote a biography of Deutscher in 1971.

Horowitz was a confidant of Black Panthers leader Huey P. Newton, and provided legal and financial assistance to the black revolutionary organization.

FrontPage Magazine (also known as FRONTPAGEMAG.COM) is an online conservative political magazine, edited by David Horowitz and is published by the David Horowitz Freedom Center (DHFC) (formerly the Center for the Study of Public Culture), a non-profit organization in Los Angeles, California. It is a publication presenting a conservative viewpoint on various subjects.

FrontPage Magazine's main focus is on issues pertaining to foreign policy, war, and Islamic terrorism. It regularly condemns official enemies of the U.S. and is a strong proponent of the war on terror, the Iraq War, and Israel's military actions.

But hey, Horowitz (and friends) have turned a new leaf you tell yourself.... a commie wouldn't lie, would he? Perhaps you should just go right to the source...
