The Righteous Are As Bold As A Lion
We must now face the harsh truth that the objectives of communism are being steadily advanced because many of us do not recognize the means used to advance them….The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst (J. Edgar Hoover, FBI Director, Elks Magazine, August 1956). The above quote, like most of the material in this chapter, has been excerpted with permission from the book, Welcome to Soviet America: Special Edition (Michael T. Petro, Jr., 2012).
Although the above quote by J. Edgar Hoover was written around 60 years ago, it is just as relevant today as it was in 1956. Both then and now, Hoover was right in pointing out (as quoted above), “The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst.” This chapter was written to encourage the reader to do precisely that. We must all acknowledge that evil exists, and that it has been corrupting the very fabric of our society for many generations. We must acknowledge this publicly as well as privately, just as other bold Americans have done.
Political correctness, which is just another label for cultural Marxism, must no longer prohibit us from boldly telling the truth. In Proverbs 28:1, we are told, “The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” For far too long, we have been timid when we should have been bold. For this reason, Jeff Snyder titled his book, Nation of Cowards (http://www.rkba.org/comment/cowards.html), and Judge Andrew P. Napolitano titled one of his books A Nation of Sheep (Thomas Nelson, 2007).
Judge Napolitano describes how we the people are being led down a very dangerous path where the federal government bypasses the U.S. Constitution to rob us of our rights and freedoms. He warns us that too many Americans are just silently standing by as the federal government systematically destroys the very freedoms it was designed to protect. Furthermore, Judge Napolitano asks if you are a sheep or a wolf. Are you a sheep that will stand by silently as your freedom and dignity as a human being are destroyed or are you a wolf that will fight for your God-given rights? Clearly, “We the People” must become as wolves. We must now be as bold as a lion, as instructed in the Bible. If we do not fight for our rights now, they will soon be lost forever! In the election of November, 2016, we came perilously close.
Welcome to Soviet America!
In 1932, William Z. Foster, the National Chairman of the Communist Party, USA, wrote a book titled Toward Soviet America. In his book, Foster described many Communist goals and objectives that would be pursued to realize the communist dream of constructing a Soviet America. Few Americans took Foster seriously. Few Americans took the warnings of J. Edgar Hoover seriously. Those who did so were ridiculed. That ridicule was compounded by extreme frustration as one published Communist goal after another was achieved, while the bulk of the American people lived in blissful ignorance and denial. (Has anything changed?) Most Americans simply could not believe the sovereign America founded by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and the other Founding Fathers could ever be subverted and transformed into an American version of the now defunct Soviet Union. Surely a self-governing America could never resemble the Soviet slave state operated by genocidal maniacs like Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Nikita Khrushchev!
Thankfully, increasing numbers of knowledgeable Americans today are asserting unequivocally that the evidence of an encroaching Soviet America can no longer be denied. Conservatives who once laughed at those who warned of an impending Soviet America are no longer laughing. Many have been left stunned and bewildered. Some report a sense of unreality regarding the events that are unfolding before their very eyes on a daily basis. Only now, six decades later, are they beginning to understand what J. Edgar Hoover meant when he said the American mind has been presented with a criminal conspiracy that is so monstrous, so evil, that we cannot believe it actually exists; we cannot believe that this evil is within our midst and accomplishing one diabolical goal after another, decade after decade—right in front of our eyes!
The evidence for the existence of the “evil” that J. Edgar Hoover spoke of 60 years ago is overwhelming and many prominent individuals are publicly speaking out—as boldly as lions! Let’s review some documented quotes from a wide variety of astute observers of the human condition who have concluded that William Z. Foster’s dream of a Soviet America is, indeed, becoming a reality and that FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s assessment was, undoubtedly, correct.
Gerald Celente, the Founder and Director of the Trends Research Institute, spoke to George Noory in 2008 on the late-night program Coast to Coast AM. After observing intrusive, heavy-handed federal involvement in the private U.S. banking system and the private financial affairs of the American people, Gerald Celente proclaimed, “This is becoming the USSA: the United States of Soviet America!” Clearly, he was describing a fundamental characteristic of the “Soviet America” predicted by Communist William Z. Foster in 1932. In a return appearance five months later, Gerald Celente transposed a few words and stated, “We’re becoming the USSA: The United Soviet States of America.” Seventy-six years earlier, William Z. Foster predicted that Americans would one day live in “The United Soviet States of America,” using those very words to title the last chapter of his book.
When Rush Limbaugh was discussing with Sean Hannity Obama’s plans for America, Rush said, “I don’t know where—what he [Obama] wants to try has worked. It didn’t work in the Soviet Union.” In addition, Rush reported that liberal Democrats were using the power of the federal government to intimidate him. They were trying to silence him by distorting his words, publicly denouncing him, and sending a critical letter to the management of Premiere Radio Networks. Rush characterized such behavior as follows: “…I think they’ve become Stalinist-like…this is not just liberalism. It’s Stalinist, using the power of the state to intimidate citizens.” Rush made a transcript of this program available to his listeners, and titled the transcript “Stalinists Have Taken Over the Left.”
In 1960, Billy James Hargis wrote a book titled Communist America…Must It Be? In his book, Hargis warned that powerful forces were at work to create a Communist America. Nearly fifty years later, we find concerned Americans, such as Glen Beck, making the following statements: “We are now more Communist than China,” and, “…both sides [Democrats and Republicans] are running towards bigger government. We’re practically the Soviet Union.” Billy James Hargis further wrote that, “The American people need to see communism for what it really is, whether disguised as liberalism, socialism, progressivism, or modernism.”
Nearly fifty years later Michael Savage stated that, “It’s chilling to see how much we’ve become like the ex-Soviet Union—thanks to liberalism!” (Underlines added for emphasis.)
Finally, more and more prominent Americans are beginning to wake up. As stated at the beginning of this chapter, they are now facing “the harsh truth that the objectives of communism are being steadily advanced” in this nation, and they are coming “to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst,” about which Hoover warned us in 1956.
You Are The Solution!
Tea Party members and other conservative Christians must now follow the examples given in the previous paragraphs. We must call liberalism and progressivism for what they are; today, they are simply euphemisms for communism.
We know that leftists boldly tell huge, bald-faced lies; and they tell them over and over again until millions of Americans actually believe those lies. From the global warming/climate change hoax, which has been perpetrated upon the entire global community, to the lie of “separation of church and state,” and the lies behind abortion, gun control, and socialized medicine, liberals never stop! They lie openly, boldly, confidently, and they demand that honest people believe, or at least pretend to believe, each and every lie! This was a strategy used by Hitler himself: Lie big and lie often and it will eventually be accepted as the truth.
If they can successfully sell their lies, why can’t we successfully sell the truth? We must not be afraid to use the words “Marxist,” “Leninist,” Stalinist,” “Communist,” and “fascist,” when describing the Left. We may ask why the Left is winning the so-called same-sex or gay marriage debate. They are winning simply because too many prominent, conservative Christians are too timid to tell the truth boldly. We must be as bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1b).
We must boldly state in public that we oppose same-sex marriage or gay marriage for two obvious reasons. Firstly, the Bible tells us that homosexual behavior is sinful; and, therefore, a Christian cannot support that which is condemned as sinful in the Bible. Secondly, from among the 45 Communist goals found in the 1961 book The Naked Communist by W. Cleon Skousen, we find that Communist goal number 26 is as follows: “Present homo-sexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as normal, natural, healthy.” It should also be noted that this Communist goal, along with the other 44 Communist goals, were entered into the Congressional Record in 1963 by Representative Albert Herlong, Jr., a conservative Democrat from Florida. The reader may review these 45 Communist goals at the website WelcomeToSovietAmerica.Net
Is Jeff Snyder correct in calling us a “Nation of Cowards,” too fearful simply to tell the truth? Are we too sheepish to fight for rights and liberties that are clearly delineated in the U.S. Constitution, as Judge Andrew P. Napolitano has suggested? If we are too fearful to call a Communist goal just what it is—a Communist goal—when it has been documented as such and entered into the Congressional Record, then we are no longer living in America, the republic. We are, instead, clearly living in a Soviet-style America where people are afraid to speak the truth.
