Oregon Militia ‘Report’ another Astroturf-Funded Collectivist Smear of Patriots
“Avoid slogans, name calling, and demonizing members of the Right,” a report by Political Research Associates advocates. “Expose who benefits from right-wing campaigns.”
An immediately noticeable disconnect is that “Up in Arms: A Guide to Oregon’s Patriot Movement,” can’t resist ignoring its own “advice.” If you’re concerned about federal land “ownership,” if you believe the Second Amendment means “shall not be infringed,” if you think immigration policy ought to put the interests of “ourselves and our Posterity” first, if you advocate nullification of laws repugnant to the Constitution, if you’re opposed to Marxist motives behind wealth transfers and “progressive” social engineering, and if you recognize warmist hysteria a political fraud to give collectivists increased power and control over all aspects of our lives, you’re an implicit racist, a xenophobe and – even worse!! You may just be a Three Percenter and/or an Oath Keeper!
The innuendo and conflation are strong in these collectivists. They even make a point of including Stewart Rhodes, Sheriff Richard Mack, the late Mike Vanderboegh, and my friend Kevin Starrett of Oregon Firearms Federation in their list of “bad” people, among others. And they cite my “Red/Green Axis” and “Most Dangerous Oregon Gun Bills” pieces as proof of what an evil extremist and hater I must be.
With us being treasonous bigots and sociopaths as its major premise, we’re absolved of any obligation to wade through any more lies, no matter how exhaustively end-noted they may appear to be. We’re free to follow admonition #2 and “expose who benefits” from this slick piece of propaganda masked as “research,”designed to give collectivist politicians and LE fusion centers cover under which they can continue smearing patriots as “domestic terrorists.”
Obviously, the snouts at the trough rely heavily on keeping the cash flow turned on, either directly, as the president/executive director and employees do through monetary compensation, or indirectly, like directors get through networking. And let’s not forget the agendas being advanced: Anti-Christian: Check. “Prison abolition and LGBTQ liberation”: Check. “Immigrants rights”: Check. “Feminist ethics”: Check. “Racial justice”: Check. “Social justice”: Check.
Funny—if there’s any outrage reserved for closed theocracies that abuse women and throw gays off buildings, it’s pretty well buried. Maybe the only problem exists in the place all their “refugees” are being imported to…
And what’s a group in Massachusetts doing trying to sway public policy in Oregon? Who else benefits?
Per “Discover the Networks,” doctrinaire commies relying on poisoning the well of American exceptionalism do:
PRA identifies its two overriding agendas as: (a) boosting “dialectical materialism” — a doctrine based on the writings of Marx and Engels, and elaborated upon by Plekhanov, Lenin, and Stalin; and (b) promoting “progressive internationalism” to thwart the successes of capitalism.
And it also advances the agenda of the major benefactors behind that effort:
Its financing derives entirely from foundation grants, individual contributions, and income from the sale of materials. Among the foundations that support PRA are the Ford Foundation, the New York Community Trust, the Public Welfare Foundation, and the San Francisco Foundation. The entertainer Barbra Streisand is also a PRA benefactor.
Streisand, eh? Time to count to 10 and settle down. Otherwise, that admonition against name-calling is gonna be tough to heed.
