Remember the “Motor Voter Law” passed by Democrats and signed into law by Bill Clinton Bet you didn’t know this:
“This voter registration movement was spearheaded by the husband and wife team of Frances Fox Piven and Richard Cloward in the early 1980s in response to the Reagan administration. Both of them college professors and liberal activists.” Both of them involved in Alinksy radicalism. Still at it today. Obama embraced Alinsky, Cloward and Piven beliefs.
What’s the implication of involvement of Cloward and Piven? This:
“First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse. Obama attended Columbia U and is carrying this out right in front of us, brazenly destroying our economy. ”
Have you noticed that there is crisis after crisis after crisis, since Obama was first elected in 2008? Each one is said to be devastating if Congress doesn’t pass some big money bill to solve it? The results are trillions in debt, ailing economy, job losses, businesses closing. Capitalism is under attack. If it fails, what will replace it? Socialism, Marxism, Dictatorship, something less than our Constitutional republic?
“In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when “the rest of society is afraid of them,” Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would “the rest of society” accept their demands.
The key to sparking this rebellion would be to expose the inadequacy of the welfare state. Cloward-Piven’s early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration. “Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules,” Alinsky wrote in his 1989 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system’s failure to “live up” to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist “rule book” with a socialist one.”
“Cloward and Piven calculated that persuading even a fraction of potential welfare recipients to demand their entitlements would bankrupt the system. The result, they predicted, would be “a profound financial and political crisis” that would unleash ‘powerful forces for major economic reform at the national level’.”
“Their article called for “cadres of aggressive organizers” to use “demonstrations to create a climate of militancy.” Intimidated by threats of black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help.
“This was an example of what are commonly called Trojan Horse movements — mass movements whose outward purpose seems to be providing material help to the downtrodden, but whose real objective is to draft poor people into service as revolutionary foot soldiers; to mobilize poor people en masse to overwhelm government agencies with a flood of demands beyond the capacity of those agencies to meet. The flood of demands was calculated to break the budget, jam the bureaucratic gears into gridlock, and bring the system crashing down. Fear, turmoil, violence and economic collapse would accompany such a breakdown — providing perfect conditions for fostering radical change.
“Cloward and Piven recruited a militant black organizer named George Wiley to lead their new movement.” Beginning to sound like what we’re watching today?
“Both Cloward and Piven attended the White House signing of the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act as guests of President Clinton.
(Unlikely to improve on the writings in these two cited articles, I chose to post excerpts from them, adding only a little commentary here and there. I sincerely hope you go to these articles and read them in their entirety. It’s important that our elected officials and influential people like Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and many others, be sent this information. Send it to your state governors and elected officials, too, because they fight on the front lines to stop this onslaught. They need to know and expose it before it’s too late.)
