A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
The term Useful Idiots is said to have originated in Russia and was used to describe those who blindly supported Lenin and Stalin and their cronies while they (Lenin and Stalin) went about committing atrocity after atrocity. It has also been used to describe Americans who supported the socialist/communist cause in the USA and other democratic country.
The Urban Dictionary says the following about useful idiots: “Today, it refers to brainwashed liberals and leftists the world over (usually college students that aren't necessarily idiots, but just misinformed, naive, and ignorant of facts due to being indoctrinated with liberal/socialist propaganda through their public education) who believe that George W. Bush has committed more crimes against humanity than leftist darlings like Saddam Hussain, Yasser Arafat, and Osama Bin Laden, and still defend Communism, the cause of over 100 million deaths to this day.”
A little farther down the page it says: “Unthinking proponents of socialism and/or communism.
You can usually find them swarming the internet, participating in riots to promote tolerance, attempting to think up questions for themselves to answer, or sitting ………. with their friends discussing the failings of capitalism over a light frappuccino. (You may read the entire definition for yourself at the Urban Dictionary site HERE.)
When I first heard of the Occupy Wall Street crowd, I chuckled to myself. Here we go again, I thought.
When I saw the crowd on TV, I belly laughed. It was the same crowd of useful idiots I experienced in the 1960’s. Faces and fashions have changed a bit, but their totally vacuous message is unchanged and as clear as a bell: “We haven’t a clue what we are doing, but we are waiting on a leader to tell us what to say, what to do and where to go.”
Their utter clueless-ness, their total naïveté are the very qualities (?) sought out by powerful people with anti-American causes, lots of money, and an overwhelming hatred of freedom, liberty, and the constitutional republic of America.
The pitiful socialist dregs of America’s academia use them -- and their idiocy -- to press their cause for a socialist America, their Utopian dream. The “sixties socialists” have yet to accept that their socialist dream has slain millions of human beings and caused the demise of numerous countries and is currently about to topple the European Union. And yet -- their puppets, the idiots in the street mobs, are actually calling for a totalitarian government in America … and … insisting that American voters reelect Obama as President.
A number of the world’s ultra-rich understand all this, and yet they don’t care. In fact, they seem to rather enjoy the anarchy and even encourage it from the safety of their ivory towers far above the fray. They move earth’s government’s around as if they are pieces on a game board… for what? For FUN! … and PROFIT!
As you watch the antics of those pitiful “near-people,” in the street mobs, and listen to their anti-capitalist rants, remember this: THESE are the people who support Obama for President. Take a good look at those street mobs. THEY are the people who will race to the polls in November of 2012 and cast as many ballots as possible to ensure their heartthrob regains the Presidency. THEY are the people who will do everything they can to insure America becomes the socialist paradise the mob leaders are determined to create by any means necessary.
Yes, their antics ARE funny. But they are far more dangerous to the freedom of over 300 million Americans than al Qaida is or ever was.
People make fools of themselves for various reasons. The political left, however, has cornered the market on making fools of themselves in the cause of socialism.
They are desperate. And their desperation is born of their blood curdling fear of conservative Americans who represent liberty, freedom, and deep support of the US Constitution.
That mob of socialist brats is pathetic, pitiful, and DANGEROUS. THEY are the leftist leaders of tomorrow.
May God save America from the likes of these useful “socialist” idiots.
