LENIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE
There are many contenders for who is the most evil human being to walk the face of the earth – and there is no doubt that Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (1870-1924) is among them.
He was born on the Volga River in Russia but he wasn’t Russian. His father was an Oirat Mongol, his mother was Jewish-German/Swedish. He grew up in prosperity with his father as a prominent professor. He turned radical Marxist in college (Kazan University) becoming the devotee of Georgi Plekhanov ("the Founder of Russian Marxism"), and was exiled to Siberia for three years for subversive activities.
While in Siberia, copying Plekhanov who adopted the revolutionary name "Volgin" after the Volga River, he invented his own revolutionary name after Siberia’s Lena River: Lenin.
He left Russia in 1900 to live in various European cities, writing and organizing for "the revolution." Then the revolution happened in February 1917 – only it was led by a man who wanted freedom and democracy for Russia, not Communism, Alexander Kerensky. But Kerensky made a fatal mistake – he did not sue for peace with Germany, but kept the war going even though it was hated by Russians, for they were starving because of it.
Lenin saw his chance. He met with German diplomats in Geneva, telling them that if they sent him to Russia with enough money, he and his followers would take over the Kerensky government, seize power, and immediately declare peace with Germany. The Germans agreed. In the chilling words of Winston Churchill:
"The Germans turned upon Russia the most grisly of weapons. They transported Lenin in a sealed train like a plague bacillus from Switzerland into Russia."
Lenin’s followers proceeded, at his instructions, to kill anyone in their way. Kerensky had to flee for his life, eventually coming to the US, where he taught Russian history at Stanford. (TTPer Stender Sweeney was one of his students.)
The Black Book of Communism, a scholarly account of deaths caused by communist governments published by Harvard University, attributes between 4 and 5 million people murdered or starved on purpose by Lenin – including the Famine of 1921-22 in which over 2 million men, women, and children were deliberately starved to death to bring the Russian people into submission.
Lenin was a midget – he was five-foot-three – but a spellbinding orator. He was a fanatical ideologue of hate who knew absolutely nothing about economics. He had no experience whatever of how business worked and saw the world only through Marxist abstractions.
He never held any sort of job, much less ran anything so much as a corner store. He lived off the sale of his rabble-rousing pamphlets and "donations" from his commie comrades in West Europe exile.
Some of these comrades took subaltern routine jobs in business companies – clerks who filled out forms, copied letters, entered figures into books, filed papers. As the great Austrian economist Ludwig Von Mises recounts in his classic, The Anti-Capitalist Mentality, this was the key for Lenin to "gain control of production and distribution" in a society:
"All that Lenin learned about business was from the tales of his comrades… that it required a lot of scribbling, recording, and ciphering. Thus, he declares [in his most popular essay, State and Revolution] that ‘accounting and control’ are the chief things necessary for the organizing and correct functioning of society.
"But ‘accounting and control,’ he goes on saying, ‘have already been simplified by capitalism by the utmost, until they have become the extraordinarily simple operations of watching, recording, and issuing of receipts. This is within the reach of anybody who can read and write and knows the first four rules of arithmetic.’
"Here we have the philosophy of the filing clerk in its full glory."
A filing clerk soon to become a ruthlessly fascist tyrant. And today in America, we have our very own Lenin in the White House.
The time between the Kerensky’s Russian Revolution of February 1917 to bring freedom and Lenin’s Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917 to destroy freedom was eight months. The time between the Colonists’ American Revolution of 1776 and Zero’s Bolshevik Revolution of 2008 was 232 years – but here we are.
Vast swarms of Americans since 2008 have been playing Three Monkeys – hear no evil, see no evil, say no evil about Zero. For if you do, you’re irretrievably condemned as a racist.
Although it has been blindingly obvious from the get-go that Zero hates America – what more evidence could anyone possibly need than to learn, in March of 2008, that for 20 years he sat in church listening to his Marxist pastor pray for God to damn America? – not even Rush Limbaugh could admit it until this week.
Finally and at last, this past Friday the 13th Zero ripped off his mask and exposed himself for the Leninist he is: the fascist filing clerk who knows nothing yet demands to be all-powerful.
In a speech to his moocher supporters in Roanoke, Virginia, he went off-teleprompter to say:
"If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen."
Zero’s Three Monkeys just died – this speech, these immortal words – "If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that – somebody else made that happen" – killed them. This is rapidly becoming an OMG moment of truth for millions of folks who have been shielding their eyes and ears and mouths from reality.
And best of all, those words have lit a fire under Mitt Romney’s wooden derriere. His campaign is selling "I Built My Business, Mr. President" T-shirts. The Romney campaign has made a huge ad buy with this devastation of Zero in a minute and 41 seconds:
In the Pittsburgh suburb of Irwin on Tuesday (7/17), Romney gave a 30 minute speech without notes or a teleprompter that was nothing short of jaw-dropping fabuloso. I can’t find a decent YouTube of it, but here it is on C-Span. This is Romney as you have never seen him before. He is alive, he is gunning for bear.
What I find most intriguing is that he is truly and deeply offended by Zero’s moral attack on capitalism. This is where it counts, folks. There is nothing in this world we need more than a moral defense of capitalism.
Not capitalism’s practicality, how it can create more jobs and prosperity – which is demonstrably true and massively so – but it’s morality, that it is a morally virtuous economic system.
Note that the Left’s entire attack on capitalism – which means Zero’s attack – is a moral one; that capitalism, the free market, economic freedom, is not fair. When ABC’s Charlie Gibson asked Zero if he would raise capital gains taxes even if the evidence was that this would result in less revenue for the government, not more, he answered, yes, he would "in the interest of fairness."
Mark down the date: July 17, 2012, the day Mitt Romney started becoming the next President of the United States by delivering a passionate – passionate – moral defense of the American economic system, capitalism. Here’s what he said:
"I don’t think anyone could have said what he said [‘If you’ve got a business you didn’t build that’] who had actually started a business or been in a business. And my own view is that what the president said was both startling and revealing.
I find it extraordinary that a philosophy of that nature would be spoken by a president of the United States. It goes to something I’ve spoken about from the beginning of the campaign, that this election is to a great degree about the soul of America.
Do we believe in an America that is great because of government, or do we believe in an America that’s great because of free people allowed to pursue their dreams and build their future?
I’m convinced he wants Americans to be ashamed of success. I want Americans to welcome and to celebrate success and to encourage people to reach as high as they can — and, in some cases, to build enterprises.
I don’t want government to take credit for what the individuals of America accomplish. Whether they work in government or work in the private sector, it’s the people of America that make America the unique nation, the exceptional nation that it is!
I want to encourage economic freedom. Our economy is driven by free people pursuing their ideas and their dreams. It is not driven by government. And what the president is doing is crushing economic freedom.
In the past people of both parties understood that encouraging achievement, encouraging success, encouraging people to lift themselves as high as they can, encouraging entrepreneurs, celebrating success instead of attacking it and denigrating it makes America strong.
That’s the right course for this country! His course is extraordinarily foreign!
Extraordinarily foreign… meaning, clearly, not American, meaning Anti-American, meaning the President of the United States is not an American in his soul.
Romney has gone to the very center of the struggle for America’s soul, her moral soul. The morality of America, her moral goodness and decency, is based on the basic moral principle of our Declaration of Independence, that each one of us has the individual moral right to our own Life, our own Liberty, and the Pursuit of our own personal Happiness.
Lenin, and Zero, are the absolute direct moral opposites of this. That is what makes them tyrants, that is what make them moral monsters. Once Lenin was able to consolidate power, his evil became murderously real. Zero has not yet had that chance. He is asking for it on November 6th.
Quite starkly, if a majority of American voters give it to him, America’s soul will die. The only hope we will have then is all the millions of guns in private hands. That means a horrific amount of blood and no certainty of outcome. (A lot of Anti-Communist Russians with guns – the Whites – fought long and hard against the Reds, and ended up slaughtered.)
But America will not give it to him. Until July 17, our motivation was ABO, NObama. Our motivation was negative, against Zero, not positive, for his opponent. Now, Romney is giving us good reason to be fired-up positive for him. He has nailed the issue with passion.
If he keeps articulating his passion for the moral virtue of America’s basic principles, and how Zero stands against them, then, after November 6th, America’s Lenin will no longer live in the White House.
