Came across a passage about Lenin that reminded me of a connection to Obama...see if you find same: 1. In a speech delivered at the Riverside Church in New York on Human Rights Sunday, President Carter's 'golden boy,' Andrew Young said by way of explaining the famines under the Soviets: . . One lives in a land where, in most of that land, the sun sets as early as three oclock in the afternoon, and where the planting season is minimal. Under those circumstances the struggle for human rights inevitably becomes far more economic in its expression than it would in a country such as ours, where we almost take it for granted that anything can grow almost anywhere year round. a. Nonsense, of course: "The rich dark soil and the vast fields of wheat and other food products have earned Ukraine the nickname "bread basket of Europe." According to the CIA World Factbook, Ukraine produced 25% of all agricultural output in the former Soviet Union. Today, Ukraine exports substantial amounts of grain, vegetables, sugar beets, sunflower seeds, milk and meat. The Bread Basket of Europe — Infoplease.com b. Obviously, Andrew Young is not a farmer On the other hand, one might say that the Soviet Union has endured poor weather since, roughly, October 1917. c. One must ask why this Carter cabinet member felt it necessary to engender sympathy for the Soviets, and downplay the depredations of communism. 2. Before anyone begins to believe that the communists began their war on their own people after the Revolution, read Lenins embracing of the cleansing effects of famine, as far back as 1891, in order to facilitate the creation of a new industrial proletariat which would take over from the bourgeoisie Famine, in destroying the outdated peasant economy, would bring about the next stage more rapidly, and usher in socialism, the stage that necessarily followed capitalism. Coutois, et.al., The Black Book of Communism, p. 123, 124. a. Once in power, the communists built their own famines. So, the Soviet Communists has zero concern for lives, even the lives of their own people. Can we find similar thinking in the United States? 3. Who was personally selected by Barack Obama to be his director of Obamas Office of Science and Technology Policy-? Our very own Lenin, John Holdren: a. "...in Human Ecology, where Holdren and the Ehrlichs wrote: Political pressure must be applied immediately to induce the United States government to assume its responsibility to halt the growth of the American population. Obama Advisers Green Manifesto: Americans Will Be Better Off When They Work, Produce and Earn Less - HUMAN EVENTS b.Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not; The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food; Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise; People who "contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" -- in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized. A transnational "Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force. Confederate Yankee: Obama's Science Czar Wrote Book Advocating Forced Abortions, Sterilizing Americans By Poisoning Our Drinking Water Once a vote is cast for a leftist who would agree with and appoint a John Holdren, then one is agreeing with the same insanity that produced one hundred million deaths. A line can be drawn in the thought processes, such as they are, from Lenin, to Carter and Andrew Young, to Obama and John Holdren. You down with this?
