On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Plunge right through that line!
Run the bill clear through that crowd,
Get out of debt this time! (U rah rah!)
On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
Or it’s Cloward-Piven time.
Fight! Fellows! – fight, fight, fight!
Or it‘ll be our behinds!
I imagine you are aware of all those greedy capitalists in Moscow, Wisconsin, demonstrating so they can keep working in collusion, to siphon public money for their power hungry interests and their own bank accounts.
Sorry for the bad typing; make that government workers, in Madison. “Kill the bill!” they shout and likely spit when they do. The name of it is the Budget Repair Bill, but much of the Marxstream media call it Gov. Scott Walker’s “anti-union bill.”
I live forty-some miles northwest of Mad City, in the town where the nation’s first Progressive Party presidential candidate, Robert La Follette married his leftist, feminist wife, in 1881. Yeah, 1881. Politically precocious, we are, here in Badgerland. “Fighting Bob” learned his social justice from U. of W. president, John Bascom, who came from Massachusetts’ Andover Seminary (essentially of the same United Church of Christ denomination as the so reverent Jeremiah Wright). Those Congregationalists stem from the Puritans, whom, as the name implies, had a soft spot for utopianism and legalistic perfectibility.
Progressivism, but also unvarnished Marxism made inroads very early here in Wisconsin, including within the state and region’s labor movement. In 1904, the University of Wisconsin became the home of John R. Commons, one of the first progressive incrementalists, a label which tends to cover radical interests of unknown lengths. He was called the spiritual father of Social Security and he specialized in union studies. He was also one of America’s progressive eugenicists.
Barry Obama’s hero, Harold Washington was not America’s fist socialist, big city mayor. That distinction goes to Emil Seidel, elected as Milwaukee’s Marxist boss in 1910, the same year that Victor Luitpold Berger was elected America’s first socialist representative in Congress.
It was Berger that gave union leader Eugene Debs a copy of Das Kapital and won him over to Marxism. Debs became the Socalist Party’s candidate for president in 1912, with Mayor Seidel his VP candidate. However, their Socialist Party of America chose not to run their own candidate for president in 1924, eagerly backing La Follette, instead, much as confessed socialists backed Obama, in 2008.
The Department of Justice was on to Berger and he was tried and in 1919, convicted of rather tenuous charges under the Espionage Act of that time. Four others were also convicted for their own doings. Yet, Berger continued to be a political celebrity in Wisconsin.
Those names are just the tip of the top of the iceberg. Extensive information on the Wisconsin front on the Marxist war against American freedoms is available in numerous books and at the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison, where they have a curious pride in their collection. Compiled, it is enough to satisfy the appetite of one much more skeptical than our state’s own Sen. Joe McCarthy.
With numerous socialist operations headquartering in neighboring Chicago and with the influx of European immigrants, at or shortly after the turn of the Twentieth Century, the state became saturated with a small but stubborn and increasingly subversive minority of Marxists.
Concomitantly, the University of Wisconsin became a center for the weakly meandering but strongly stated thoughts of discontented, dead Germanic and Jewish intellectuals, hanging out at the atheistic ends of the enlightenment through industrial ages. During the Vietnam War, the U. of W. at Madison was among the hottest of the SDS hot spots, suffering a murderous bombing along the way. Many more Marxists than the infamous Joel Rogers intellectually infest Wisconsin and it’s university system to this day. Pardon, make that through this day (tenure) and despite their thirst for abortion, many of them breed red diaper comrades.
Wisconsin is also on the vanguard of the subversion of America’s churches — yes churches. It was Saul Alinsky’s revolutionary model to feed neo-Marxist community organizations, drawing from radicalized resources planted within churches and synagogues, along with trade unions (as well as the cash cow foundation and political party structures already blueprinted by his time). And, long story short, we have the Gamaliel Foundation ¹ ² (which, in Chicago, employed Barack Obama) plus Alinsky’s own baby, the Industrial Areas Foundation, both flourishing here, like woodbine. Their roots thrust especially into Wisconsin’s dominant Lutheran (especially ELCA) and Catholic churches, plus many others. (Links, their own sites: Gamaliel Foundation; Gamaliel in Wisconsin – WISDOM; Industrial Areas Foundation; IAF’s Common Ground in southeastern Wisconsin: ELCA’s “Organizing Networks” — neo-Marxist Roman Catholic entities are legion, pardon the Biblical expression.)
What a state, as Yakov Smirnoff would say.
And get this. Before our early apostle of Marxism, Victor Berger, became a politician he was a newspaper editor and… a school teacher. What Mark Twain would say is, “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”
And now we have teachers and other government workers, some likely third and fourth generation Marxists, calling in, sick to demonstrate and getting doctor’s excuses on site. Some teachers have even dragged high school students along, though according to interviews, many fail to understand why they have come. One is confident these students are not quite taught the revolutionary aims of those clued-in union bosses, community organizers, and progressive politicians who follow the Alinsky and Cloward-Piven models. It remains controversial, to try to overload America’s governments with so much debt they collapse and turn the swollen ranks of the government-dependent into a panicked and frustrated mob, nationwide and significantly more ginned up than is seen now, in Madison.
And how many of the majority in the Wisconsin legislature understand this is the goal? It is hard to say, since charges of McCarthyism await any who would mention it.
To the debate, the union bosses have trucked in the throw weight of notables such as Richard Trumka, communist collaborator and head of the AFL-CIO; more rhyming with history. Corporate shake-down artist, Jesse Jackson has been at it long enough to rhyme with his own.
But something unparalleled in American history, the Neo-Marxist Organizer in Chief, himself, Barack Obama pushes the protests, while building the ranks of the pampered proletariat through his personal and even sorta’ presidential operation, Organizing for America. And, the putative president has warned the vetted Governor Walker against an “assault on the unions.” Of course he has.
At, HeartlandRevolution.com, we see that numerous other state capitols have been targeted for little Cairos-in-the-heartland, including Columbus, Ohio and Eugene Debs’ own Indianapolis, IN. So fitting that it all begins here, where the force is strong, but the prog pickings may be a bit thinner, elsewhere.
Here is my take, this winter, no snow and no bluff. We are in a contest of global collectivism vs. our American sovereignty and liberty that will carry on in the rhymings of history, to make for a saga of the ages. So on, Wisconsin, in it.
