We first have to understand just what is the Cloward-Piven Strategy. I direct you to a December 14th article, "Cloward-Piven Strategy (CPS)" . I urge its careful study, as I think this helps to connect many dots. This strategy is the brainchild of two sociology professors from Columbia University: Richard Clowen and Frances Piven. Not surprisingly, they acknowledge Saul Alinsky as an inspiration.
They were revolutionaries who contrived to recruit poor people by pretending to help them materially. Their objective was to overwhelm the welfare system and other social service structures so as to cause massive unrest and social upheaval. Again, I urge you to read this for yourselves.
The sane person will realize that the Obama Hell Bill might very well be intended to be one of those Trojan Horse programs detailed in the article. It is being ballyhooed as the healthcare salvation of the lower classes. Of course, this Hell Bill will lead to the ultimate destruction of the American health care system. No doubt that will cause significant unrest, perhaps leading to violence. Is that the ultimate aim? Remember who sits in the White House, with his radical ties, who sat in the church of Jeremiah Wright as the latter screamed, "God damn America!"
So who are some of the dupes helping to wheel that Trojan Horse into our society? I have described in earlier posts that the USCCB is one of them. Now I must point out that the Maryland Catholic Conference has swigged down that stupifying koolaid. I received today an email from their Catholic Advocacy Network, entitled "Tell Senate not to move health care bill forward until it is morally acceptable" The action it urges at the bottom is "Please click the "take action" link in the top right corner of the page to urge our U.S. senators not to move the health care reform bill forward until its fundamental flaws are corrected and urge them that if those changes are not made, the bill should be opposed." (italics mine)
In other words, up until now, they haven't been opposing it, but merely have been trying to put the proverbial lipstick on the rattlesnake. The fact is that many in these "Catholic Conferences" are infatuated with socialism, in disobedience to Pope Pius XI. I had occasion, two years ago, to write "Marxist Influence in Writings of Maryland Catholic Conference". In it, I link to a very strange statement that appears on the MCC website. Note the timing of that statement in relation to one of the biggest tax hikes in Maryland's history.
I know there are some who might suggest that I'm being uncharitable in calling the USCCB and the MCC "dupes" for supporting the Obama Hell Bill. In truth though, the use of the term "dupes" is the charitable path. The fact is, if the USCCB and MCC aren't being blinded by gross stupidity, then in all likelihood they are being motivated by something quite sinister.
