"Grandmother" of Obama's Socialist Philosophy Calls for Violent Revolution Against Capitalism

I saw yesterday that Ron Radosh had uncovered a recent rant from leftist agitator Frances Fox Piven in the pages of the the radical left The Nation. Piven and her husband Richard Cloward had formulated the so-called "Cloward-Piven" strategy to overwhelm the welfare system and collapse capitalism in a prior article in The Nation in 1966, and the strategy has been a focus of leftist ideologues for more than four decades, including ACORN and it's most famous community organizer, Barack Hussein Obama.

The Blaze wades back into the newer article again today, noting:

She's considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, and finally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. That's the simplified version of Frances Fox Piven's philosophy originally put forth in the pages of The Nation in the 60s.

Now, as the new year ball drops, Piven is at it again, ringing in 2011 with renewed calls for revolution.

In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation ("Mobilizing the Jobless," January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle. Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular in the 60s.

Americans well aware of Barack Obama's influences have always regarded him as a potential threat to the Republic, and when his Administration's "accomplishments" are viewed through the prism of Cloward-Piven, and that suspicion seems well-grounded.

I don't believe these fools have considered the possibility that the people might rise up and overthrow the welfare system along with the self-styled elites who aspire to political power. Their fundamental blindness is their belief that we are ignorant of world history and cannot see the disastrous results of similar efforts elsewhere.

She's got to be one of the ugliest women I've seen in recent memory. But then, that's usually the case with hardcore leftists, it's like a poison that affects the entire body.

Any diocese that allows Michael Pfleger to preach has precious little credibility--assuming that was what you were seeking. OTOH, are you suggesting that Obama was a pedophile? Pedophilia is consistent with the religion of Obama's youth...

Pfleger, like Obama, is a Marxist of the Liberation Theology vein (South American Marxist priests created it, James Cone provided the racist element that attracted Jeremiah wright and Obama to the cult). He spoke often at Trinity UCC, and famously called for the lynching murder of a gun store owner who lived outside Chicago because he believes people should be forcibly disarmed.

Want to try to "help" Obama some more, John Ryan?

Iconoclast, Child rape was also consistent with one of OBama's other early mentors, communist Frank Marshall Davis, who was quite proud of his rape of a young teenage girl.

Considering Davis was also a bisexual as well as a statutory rapist, I can only imagine what else young Barry Obama learned from him.

Once again one wonders what courses and advisors appear in Obama's hidden Columbia transcripts.
