The Frankfurt School

theodoradorno“The major flaw in all of this is that fascism, properly understood, is not a phenomenon of the right at all. Instead, it is, and always has been, a phenomenon of the left.” Jonah Goldberg, Liberal Fascism, p. 7

“Fascism…is primarily a secular religion.” Ibid., p. 3

“The Frankfurt School scholars were leftists and most of them were refugees from Nazi Germany. Some settled in Europe, others like Theodor Adorno and Herbert Marcuse came to the United States.” Dinesh D’Souza

Big Liar

How Theodor Adorno redefined Fascism.

Dinesh D’Souza, Frontpagemag.com, August 11, 2017

Fascism and Nazism are both phenomena of the left. This makes ideological sense, because at their core they represent ideologies of the centralized, all-powerful state. Moreover, fascism grew out of Marxism, and fascism’s founder Benito Mussolini, was a Marxist and lifelong socialist. Hitler, too, was a socialist who headed the National Socialist Party and in fact changed the name of the German Workers Party to make it the National Socialist German Workers Party.

How, then, did progressives in America re-define fascism and Nazism as phenomena of the right? This sleight-of-hand occurred after World War II, once fascism and Nazism were discredited with the reputation of Holocaust. Then progressives recognized it was important to cover up the leftist roots of fascism and Nazism and to move them from the left-wing column into the right-wing column.

The man most responsible for the progressive redefinition of fascism is Theodor Adorno, a German Marxist intellectual and a member of the influential Institute for Social Research, otherwise known as the Frankfurt School. The Frankfurt School scholars were leftists and most of them were refugees from Nazi Germany.  Some settled in Europe; others like Adorno and Herbert Marcuse came to the United States.

Skewed Health Care

“If the Government doesn’t get off our backs, the whole Country will need a Chiropractor.”  Allen Unruh

“We have to depend on the stupidly of the American people to pass this [Obamacare].”  Gruber

Why Obamacare must be replaced

Allen Unruh, Open Letter, August 7, 2017

Dr_Allen_Unruh_CNA_US_Catholic_News_5_31_11Obamacare is like a hospital gown: You think you’re covered, but you’re not. The federal government with it’s $20 trillion deficit and $150 trillion in unfunded mandates is in charge of your health. We may as well hire the mafia to fight crime. Why not put Madonna in charge of abstinence education? It’s likened to giving your teenager the keys to your new sports car and a case of whiskey and sending them to Vegas hoping for a good outcome. It’s all based on a false premise, that health care is a new right granted by government.

Health care is a professional service subject to the same economic laws and principles of every other service. Every month Obamacare is in force, insurance rates go up, the people have less coverage and the few insurance companies left are dropping out of the market because Obamacare disallows them from making a profit. A nation that can justify killing unborn babies throughout all nine months for the crime of inconvenience, will certainly justify eliminating other inconvenient people such as the aged, the disabled and people with chronic pain or expensive ailments, all for what the left considers “the greater good.” The right to die, will become the duty to die. C.S. Lewis said, “Of all the tyrannies, the tyranny of doing what’s best for the greater good is the most despotic.” So, what is your life worth? Who lives, who dies and who decides? Tens of thousands of unaccountable bureaucrats must monitor who gets care and what the costs will be. People are property of the state and doctors are slaves of the state.  Continue reading

The Socialist Jesus

“To make Jesus of Nazareth a socialist is to give credence to an alternative account in which he is useful only when he speaks of someone else’s finances.”  Tom Plum

Editor’s note:  The heart of socialism/communism is Marx’s definition viz., the abolition of private property.  Neither Jesus Christ or the early church ever called for the abolition of private property.  See Acts 5:1-4

Stop Calling Jesus a Socialist

By Tom Plum, American Thinker, August 6, 2017

was-Jesus-a-socialistThroughout the entire 2016 election and onward, a tired line heard from within the Progressive Christian camp was that it was Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-declared “democratic socialist,” who spoke from a policy platform most comparable with the New Testament ethic.  The assumption is that Jesus was himself a quiet socialist, and that his charity while acting as Lord, feeding without profit and giving without return, was to become the governmental archetype for any system built upon the imperative of public utility.  Too often, this assumption is met with shrugged indifference, forcing Christians choosing the moniker of capitalist to do so beneath a darker cloud of judgment.

It must be said that Jesus was and is not a socialist by anyone’s definition, save those of his revisionists.  The Gospels do not speak of a heavenly economy of democratic access.  Instead, they speak of the Kingdom of God as the advent of an impending regime change whose topsy-turvy standard of behavior threatens the lives of the unprepared.  Where Jesus stands in the face of government saying his kingdom is not of this world, those aligned with him, the corpus mysticum, stand as a historical reminder that power itself is fleeting and its programs destined for collapse.  With king as his lexical base, Jesus contends for all our titles, and his seat at the right hand of God is the fulfillment of an all-conquering, one-world rule originally of Israel’s national vision.
