The third post in this series delves into organizations that support socialism in varied ways ranging from doctrine, protests, and open violence. All share the common ideology that individualism and free speech is incidental compared to social justice and the collective. The actual number of socialistic organizations are too numerous for this article, so I settled on four groups that have been prominent in recent weeks. All these I'm sure you heard of, but in case you haven't, below is a brief description of their influence.
What we know as Planned Parenthood was originally called The American Birth Control League founded by Margaret Sanger in 1921. Her ideology reached beyond providing birth control, delving into the selective breeding science of eugenics. From this ideology stemmed legislation from 33 states, accounting for the forced sterilization of 60,000 Americans from the early 1900's thru the 1970's.
Eugenics Defined : the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics. Developed largely by Francis Galton as a method of improving the human race, it fell into disfavor only after its use by the Nazis.
In the decades that followed Planned Parenthood played an integral role in abortion rights leading up to Roe VS Wade in 1973. According to statistics by the CDC, 638,169 abortions were reported in 2015. The strategic use of language such as "reproductive rights" and "Pro-choice" has overshadowed what is actually deemed as infanticide.
What does the Constitution say?
Abortion is not a constitutional right. Rights such as free speech, freedom of religion, assembly, and being able to defend yourself (ergo...the 2nd amendment) are rights given to you by God that are recognized by the state. Abortion is a service, just like cable, wi-fi, hair salon, etc. Women have the right to choose the service of abortion if the law allows that service. A women's sexual rights which feminists claim are being stripped away is a fallacy. A women can choose whether or not to have a sexual partner and use birth control, and any sexual harm to to a woman via domestic violence is punishable by law.
Antifa is a militant group that professes anti-fascist sentiment. Though this group has existed since the opposition of Mussolini and Hitler's Germany, their emergence on the modern-day activist scene stemmed from the various Neo-Nazi groups that were formed in Europe. In the United States, they are commonly found in large, urban cities where dominant liberal ideology and policies flourish. At protests, they are recognizable by their black clothing and masked faces. Though they claim to be anti-fascists, their ideology extends beyond their animosity toward white supremacy and anti-capitalism. They also promote either socialism, communism, or anarchy. Ironically, these socio-political archetypes is where fascism proliferates.
Methods of Activism
Antifa conducts protests and counter-protests like other activist groups, except their methods encourage violence and vandalism. They also use social media and harassment tactics against those they deem as fascist - a label that Antifa has broadened beyond the literal definition.
Even when other groups attempt to find common ground with some of their ideology, they refrain from any discussion - resorting to violence when any idea conflicts with their own.
Media Matters is a progressive, liberal media watchdog. The tenants of this organization is to stop misinformation distributed by conservative sources. Though they claim to be a fact-checker, their purpose is to solely counter conservative ideology. They are funded by numerous progressive organizations -Tides Foundation, Democracy Alliance, Moveon.org and the Center for American Progress. George Soros funds these groups as well, and has also donated considerable funds to Media Matters.
Is an organization that rose from the ashes of the failed League of Nations following World War II. Though its objective is to maintain peace among the various nations of the world, their true aim to implement globalism through multiple specialized agencies that include;
Food and Agriculture Organization
International Civil Aviation Organization
International Fund for Agricultural Development
International Labour Organization
International Maritime Organization
International Monetary Fund
International Telecommunication Union
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
United Nations Industrial Development Organization
Universal Postal Union
World Bank Group
International Bank for Reconstruction and Development
International Finance Corporation
International Development Association
World Health Organization
World Intellectual Property Organization
World Meteorological Organization
World Tourism Organization
Though they are the source of many conspiracy theories, one cannot deny their overreach with many of their doctrines. Their influence spans the globe and touches many international issues such as climate change, economics, gender equality, poverty, health, and diplomacy to name just a few. With resources acquired from participating nations, they use these funds at their own discretion toward their agenda of globalism. When dealing with this international organization, the United States must always evaluate their motives, while maintaining a strong stance of national sovereignty.
What all these groups have in common is their association with progressive ideals generally held by the Leftist groups. Their focus and agenda is simple...power and control. They use media to spread their false narrative - implementing tactics such as race pandering and social justice to stir resentment, fear, and hate for what they perceive as broad, systemic issues that do not exist. The combined influence of these groups are entrenched in our media, politics and culture. And they by no means work alone - affiliated with other organizations and individuals who themselves wield extensive influence and power. They relentlessly push their progressive agenda with whatever language they deem appropriate; Socialism, Democratic-Socialism, or Green Party for one end...stripping individuality, sovereignty, free speech, and life itself so they can control the masses.
