Progressivism and Black Liberation Theology
As I delve deeper and deeper into the substrata of the numerous issues facing Americans today, my research takes me to some strange places and even stranger ideas. Many of these "issue paths" lead into dead ends, but every now and then I travel down a road that sheds some bright and very disturbing light on things.
My recent research into the century-old American Progressive movement, as well as into today's active players, has brought me onto what I will refer to as A-HA Boulveard! Many things are becoming clearer and clearer now.
BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY is a doctrine that suggests that the GROUP salvation of the oppressed (Blacks) can only come at the expense of, repentance by or conquest of their oppressors (Whites) rather than INDIVIDUAL salvation through faith in God and Jesus Christ. Theologian James Hal Cone, the acknowledged founder of this movement, argues that, "We cannot solve ethical questions of the twentieth century by looking at what Jesus did in the first. Our choices are not the same as his. Being Christian does not mean following 'in his steps.'" Cone also suggests what must occur if there is not reconciliation by the White community. He states, "We can be certain that Black patience has run out, and unless White America responds positively to the theory and activity of Black Power, then a bloody, protracted civil war is inevitable."
The most visible example of a Black Liberation Theology Pastor? Reverend Jeremiah "God DAMN the U.S.A.!" Wright.
Like their Progressive counterparts, this totalitarian groupthink mindset MUST trump all; without exception, there can be no individuality accepted. What about Blacks who disagree with the tenets of the Black Liberation Theology? Ask Project21 member Deneen Borelli, a Black conservative and member of the Tea Party...she says in a recent AOL BlackVoices interview that she's been called an "oreo" and an "Uncle Tom."
Ms. Borelli believes that there would be more black people at Tea Party events like the April 15th tax day protests if they weren't so afraid of the backlash they would receive from family and friends.
The conjunction of these two philosophies comes in the form of President Barack Obama. We all know that the President was a member of Reverend Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) for over 20 years, and that he referred to the Reverend as his "mentor" in matters of faith. We know that he distanced himself from the Reverend and TUCC after videos of some fiery and racially-charged sermons came to the forefront. But can one distance themselves from something that was drilled into the fabric of their being for 20 years?
President Obama has never been shy about his socialist agenda, specifically through FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION of America via REDISTRUBTION OF WEALTH. In office, he has surrounded himself with numerous "czars", many having Marxist, Communist or Socialist backgrounds and beliefs. Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, Valerie Jarrett, Rahm Emmanuel, etc.
President Obama's recent appointment of Healthcare Czar Dr. Donald Berwick HAD to be done during a Congressional recess in order to avoid those pesky confirmation hearings. Why? In Berwick's own words, "...healthcare must, MUST, be redistributionist in nature."
The playbook is out there for all to read, folks...Saul Alinsky's RULES FOR RADICALS, and it is being followed step-by-step. Believe it or not, IT IS NOW ON THE REQUIRED READING LIST IN MANY HIGH SCHOOLS, which in itself is another page out of the RULES FOR RADICALS playbook.
Coming Next - Is there a "Madam President" in our future?
