Obama, Progressivism, Disaster - 1

This blog will focus on  a small part of progressivism

Critical Theory – Cloward Piven

But first an overview and the bigger picture of Progressivism.

Progressivism, at least its roots have been around since the days of the Romans.

Fabius Maximus. A Roman politician and General


His  military strategy was adopted in modern times by….


and since perfected by others, leading to Barack Obama.

I’ll NOT dwell on the different parts. YOU should google for your self.

But I will make the start of your search real easy… a blog by M Fell

Progressivism- History

He provides

  • Gradual Inevitability – Gen Fabius Maximus…eat the elephant one bite at a time
  • Cultural Marxism – Racism
  • Critical Theory – Destructive Criticism …. Cloward-Piven
  • Political Correctness – Coat your turd with Sugar

Below is the result of an email I received, and my comments.

The full dialogue is too long for most to digest in a single reading.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy
By Richard Poe

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

[[MGI...]]] AKA . . . . Overwhelm the System…. IS F Piven an Obama adviser?

I have wondered if “WE” can use the same strategy to overwhelm nobamasacommie…….. but it takes 40+ years to work

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue an African American man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty" in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation. Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called "crisis strategy" or "Cloward-Piven Strategy," as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes

[[MGI...]]]  Today that would be Obama + Czars + Demonrats

used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion.

[[MGI...]]] Wasn’t it FDR ( Social Security) and LBJ (The Great Society/War on Poverty)…. Demonrats both that forced welfare?

 Poor people can advance only when "the rest of society is afraid of them,"

[[MGI...]]] A PERFECT example of a false premise… a  planted falsity………the KEY operative being “only”… to the exclusion of ALL other possibilities, such as

  • A rising tide floats ALL boats …meaning a STRONG economy presents OPPORTUNITY to ALL
  • Good old fashioned “Application”… YOU research “Black Heroes”

[[MGI...]]] My position is that the Demonrats use welfare to weaken the poor, to hook them like drug dealers…. Their statement about the ruling class is only true WHEN the demonrats are in charge.
