America has entered the second consecutive month of unchecked rioting in Democrat-run cities and states, with no end in sight. In fact, the Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters have become emboldened to commit new and more outrageous atrocities due to the lack of any real push-back from local law enforcement. From whence did all the chaos originate? The notion of “spontaneity” is absurd. No one should believe in the existence of random or spontaneous movements, especially when they exhibit the power to overthrow powerful institutions such as, say, the United States of America, with all of the elements of its once effective constitutional, federated Republic.
George Floyd’s death from a heart attack (!) attributable first to his own lawless behavior, severe heart disease and drug abuse, and, secondarily, to the cop’s brutality is a mere EXCUSE to execute long-developed plans for anarchy. The major impetus behind the coordinated riots has been the concept of “overwhelm the systems,” as preached by the Frankfurt School, Saul Alinsky, Cloward and Piven, and others leading directly to Antifa/Organizing for America/Black Lives Matter. All of these are interconnected and focused on the same goals: the destruction of capitalism and America and the creation of a Communist dictatorship.
To understand what the riots are about, one must understand these people, as well as their philosophies, motivations, goals, and political heirs/descendants, many of whom are active members of the current Dementiacrat Party (over which they have taken direct control in recent years). Let us examine each.
The Frankfurt School
The Frankfurt School Marxists provided the pseudo-intellectual underpinnings of the worldwide Communist movement. They developed the main theories and tactics that remain in play today by subversive organizations like Antifa and BLM.
The Frankfurt School is a Marxist splinter group of leftist pseudo-intellectuals, many of them Jewish atheists, trying, mainly by means of so-called "the long march through the institutions", to corrupt traditional Christian values of Western culture with pseudo-values included in the umbrella term of Cultural Marxism. Their ultimate goal has been to take-over countries not with guns and weapons, but with pseudo-values and ideas that would change the way that people think.
The basic trait of the Frankfurt School is the merger of the Marxist philosophy with the Freudian psychoanalysis in an effort to achieve for societal changes made in line with communist directives:
- destroying free-enterprise capitalism by undermining its economic engine, the Middle Class
- the destruction of the basic building-block of society: the Family Unit, and
- destroying the Judaeo-Christian values.
The result of the ideas spread by Frankfurt School, is that the society wanders down a road towards insolvency, immorality, and totalitarianism. The revolutionary propaganda is disguised under the fig leaf of 'science'. Among the theoretical derivatives of Frankfurt School are so-called Critical theory, and professors of this school were the source of the ideas that fueled what is now known as Student's protests of 1968.
In 1923, members and sympathizers of the Marxist communist party Friedrich Pollock, Max Horkheimer, and Carl Grünberg set up an institute at Frankfurt University in Weimar, Germany. This institute was named ‘The Institute for Social Research’. Later it would become known simply as the Frankfurt school. These new Marxists had seen the old Lenin Marxists fail in their attempt to win the so-called “working class” in the West: The workers of the world did not unite in WW I. Further, these new Marxists believed the reason has been found by their comrade, Antonio Gramsci, who wrote in his Prison Notebooks, a blueprint to de-Christianize the west, that Marxism could only flourish after a long march through the cultural institutions, i.e. institutions like academies, seminaries, newspapers, magazines, radio, film, and what is now known as TV and mass media.
The new mantra of Marxists would be: change the western culture and then the workers would unite. Willi Munzenberg stated explicitly that its goal was to "organize the intellectuals and use them to make Western civilization stink. Only then, after they have corrupted all its values and made life impossible, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat."
In 1923, Lukacs and other Marxist intellectuals associated with the Communist Party of Germany founded the Institute of Social Research at Frankfurt University in Frankfurt, Germany. Georg. Lukacs. Antonio. Gramsci.

Saul Alinsky was a proponent of the Frankfurt School methods. He developed a “cookbook” that left-wing radicals have used in efforts to “undermine from within” American cultural and political institutions:
Alinsky was an author, activist, and liberal community organizer and rabble-rouser in Chicago who developed a method of local organizing that was widely copied by Democrats and influenced Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. He is credited with coining the term "community organizer." His most well-known accomplishment was the book Rules for Radicals. He wanted reform inside the system by pressuring government officials to consider the needs and wants of neighborhood residents, and he believed that the end justified any means. He was opposed by far-left radicals who wanted to destroy capitalism and who feared that Alinsky was strengthening it by resolving the issues most important to the poor and was nicknamed "The Red" for his radicalism.
In Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote specifically to the 1960s generation of New Left radicals: "What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
Hillary Clinton's senior honors thesis was an analysis of the works of Saul Alinsky and the effect that they have on politics today. Barack Obama can also trace his roots to the teachings of Saul Alinsky and the use of them at the Alinskyite organization ACORN.

Cloward and Piven
These two Sixties radicals were professors at Columbia University and likewise proponents of the Frankfurt School. They developed the Marxist strategy of “overloading the system” to precipitate a crisis that only the federal government could solve. Does that sound familiar given the Chicom virus lock-downs and the unchecked rioting that is ongoing in Democrat-run cities and states?
Richard Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven wrote about collapsing the U.S. economy and how they planned to do it in an article they co-authored in the 1960s called "Mobilizing the Poor: How it Could Be Done." Later, it was published in the left-wing magazine The Nation, under the title "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty." This strategy came to bear their namesake as the Cloward - Piven Strategy.
Cloward and Piven believed in "change" and "social justice." Inspired by the Watts riots of Los Angeles in 1965, they wrote and published their article which outlined the best way to bring the kind of Saul Alinsky-type social change to America. "In their estimation, it was to overwhelm the system and bring about the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with impossible demands and bring on economic collapse."
Following its publication, liberal activists like Barack Obama were attracted to the so-called "crisis strategy" or "Cloward-Piven Strategy," as it came to be called, and were eager to put it into effect.

Barack Obama was a direct descendant of these radical groups. He was, (and is) a Marxist at heart who did everything he could as president to undermine and destroy our constitutional Republic. In one sense, Obama is among the most – perhaps even THE most – successful presidents in US history. He promised to fundamentally change America and given what we see happening all around us today, it would be extremely difficult to argue that he has not done that. He was and is a “community organizer” in the mold of Saul Alinsky; that is exactly how he started his career. He was and is a proponent of “undermining from within” and “exploiting crises to advance a political agenda” – just as the Frankfurt School, Alinksy, Cloward, and Piven argued.
These groups are the political heirs of the aforementioned radicals. They are not “indigenous”; they are well-funded by left-wing billionaires and foreign governments, all of whom seek the destruction of America. And they are executing “The Plan.”
The ostensibly non-violent “community organizing” arm of the Democrat National Committee during the Obama years was “Organizing for America,” which is suspiciously similar to a predecessor community activist organization called ACORN in membership and motivation. It has now morphed into “Organizing for Action” after Obama left office. Is there overlap between members of OFA and Antifa? Since 2017, OFA has subsequently been transformed into the umbrella activist organization that provided many of the “street organizers” who have planned and executed Antifa’s non-spontaneous riots in American cities over the past month.
Antifa — “anti-fascist” — is not a single organization per se. Rather, it is a loose network of groups and individuals who coordinate their "anti-racist activism" on an ad hoc basis in different areas both within and outside the United States. Its political objectives align perfectly with the goals of the left-wing of the Democrat Party – and with Obama in particular. Antifa is the current manifestation of the activist authoritarian Left in America, seeking to suppress any dissenting political speech on college campuses and in the streets and using the tried-and-true Alinksy tactics of personal confrontation to put pressure on political opponents.
According to Wikipedia, BLM “is an organized movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality against African-American people.” Except they are violent as hell, aren’t they? Read more about BLM here.
Antifa, BLM, and OFA are the current manifestations of left-wing (Democrat) activism. Obama captured the DNC and continues to push “community organizing” on a wider scale across the land behind the scenes while the violent arms of Democrat activism (BLM and Antifa) have taken the battle into the streets. These actions are not coincidental; in fact, they are highly coordinated and synchronized to align with Democrat initiatives such as “defund” the police (or “reorganize and reform” the police as it has now become because “defund” polls poorly with most Americans who support law and order).
There are at least two theories as to why these groups have chosen 2020 to accelerate “The Plan” by fomenting insurrection, anarchy, and violence in the streets. The primary theory is that their backers associated with the Dementiacrat Party are directly threatened by President Trump. By extension, they mean to undermine the rule of law and the Constitution while destroying the main threat to their ongoing efforts to destroy America as envisioned by Cloward, Piven, Alinsky, and the Frankfurt School. That political threat to them is Donald J. Trump and his reelection to a second presidential term in November.
The second theory is that these people and their backers believe that they have achieved majority support among American citizens and therefore are the rightful leaders to bring about the “paradise” that has ever been promised by Communists since the Russian Revolution. By extension, this theory holds that street riots and overt destruction of our cultural heritage will accelerate the remaking of the country while demoralizing patriotic Americans, setting the table for an electoral defeat of their nemesis, President Trump.
There are other variations on these two theories, but in any event, anarchy and chaos are but two vehicles in the Left’s mobile column spearheading their pol-mil offensive across the country. Any excuse will do, so long as the propaganda can be worked to make it plausible to their “useful idiots.” Abolishing the police is part of the same effort. Create chaos strategically while tactically replacing the patriotic cops with their cops.
As for the Dementiacrat/Antifa/BLM/media blather about “police brutality”? We ain’t seen nuthin’ yet! Wait until “their” cops are in control of your local police department as they replace all the real cops who are fed up and heading out the door for retirement or other jobs. Refer to Zimbabwe and South Africa or, say, Cambodia under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge to see how it works when Communist cadre runs the police departments.
From the midst of chaos rises their wannabe antichrist or figurehead to promise order, calm, and peace. And their hope is that the people (sheeple) will accept it out of craven fear. It’s an ancient, tried and true method. Trade liberties for the promise of safety and security. This is the essence of “The Plan” for completing the transformation of America promised by Obama.
The signal that all was ready for an instantaneous nationwide insurrection and destruction was our (the People’s) hangdog acquiescence to mind control and behavior control in response to the Chicom virus pandemic. All they needed was a spark – to the flammable hair of their primed and ready useful idiots. Officer Chauvin provided that spark. And the result is the Dementiacrat-enabled rioting and unchecked criminality in the streets of large American cities.
It was all entirely predictable – and it is all entirely stoppable by exercising the political will necessary in bringing sufficient force to bear to deal with the Antifa/BLM criminals in toto. Whatever it takes! There remains a majority of Americans who are aghast at the violence and want harsh justice dispensed to the criminals. In some states, the push-back against the lawlessness is already underway:
We need much more of this across the fruited plain to put some severe crimps in “The Plan”!
I suspect that you are one of those Americans who would gladly assist the forces of law and order in stopping “The Plan” dead in its tracks and saving our constitutional Republic! Get in line.
