‘1984’ All Over Again

Over at The People’s Cube Oleg has posted links to a series of three articles that outlines the Left’s strategy of political domination. Nothing there is really new for those familiar with Orwell’s “1984” and “Animal Farm,” but he lays out how he sees things going down in the Obamanation. Having been employed as a graphic artist in one of the propaganda arms of the former Soviet Union he sees America repeating a pattern all too drearily familiar to him. Demonize the opposition, blame them for all failure, attack them relentlessly, create and direct public anger against them and ultimately mobilize the public to demand their enemies’ destruction.  Alinskyism, if effect.

This is what the Republican Party and our allies will be facing for the foreseeable future.  As your humble correspondent sees it, a war has been launched against us and we are bid surrender or be bludgeoned into submission.  My personal choice is “None of the above,”  I’m betting that yours is the the same.  I might also mention that I am a proponent of victory in war.

As I see it, a local club is not likely to be called upon to hammer out strategy and tactics at the national level, thought it is to be hoped that some elements of our input might filter up to those heights; we will be called upon to implement national strategy on at the local level.  Beyond that it is incumbent on us to hammer out strategies and tactics to gain victories here at home.  It is my hope that this space be in part used to discuss ideas and strategies that will ultimately lead to victories not only locally, at the State and National levels, but at the personal level within the sphere of influence each of us has.

Ours is a difficult position, we are the underdog.  In 1940 Winston Churchill had noting to promise his country but blood, toil, tears and sweat.  We are all familiar with those things, having recently toiled, sweated, gotten bloodied and wept.  There will be more of that.  OK, fine.  What we cannot allow is a collapse into a state of passive self pity, which is, after all, the goal the Left has for us, it is the effect they aim to achieve. Don’t give it to ’em.  Don’t even let ’em suspect it.

But be encouraged!  The Good Book tells us that “strength is perfected in weakness.”  The good news is that we got the necessary ingredient: weakness, and lots of it!  It is also there written, “If the Lord does not build the house, in vain do its builders labor; if the Lord does not watch over the city, in vain does the watchman keep vigil.”  It seems that a page from St. Augustine is apropos at this point: Pray like it all depends on God, work like it all depends on you.
