And people wonder why our kids are so far behind the rest of the world in education. College Course: US Flag Is Racist, How-to Defeat America In Iraq And Afghanistan by Dan Riehl While claiming the American flag represents racism and discussing todayâs Progressive Movementâs efforts to defeat America both at home and abroad, including on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan to help their international âcomrades,â Communist Tony Pecinovsky pulls the mask off todayâs Progressive Movement in two new exclusive Big Government videos of a University of Missouri course offering, already much in the news. Pecinovsky first came to light yesterday in a Washington Times item by Kerry Picket. While discussing âthe idea that the American flag is racist,â in the video below, Pecinovsky mentions a 2005 international youth festival in Venezuela sponsored by the World Federation of Democratic Youth(WFDY). <iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/DZO_2Q-W0zI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Pecinovsky brags that the WFDY is officially recognized by the United Nations. He also defines Cuba, Venezuela, and others as genuinely âprogressive,â the very same code word todayâs entire American Left uses for itself. That would include the Obama administration and todayâs Democrat Party, which it has finally managed to take over. In deed, in the second video, Pecinovsky touts their linkage to such so-called mainstream efforts, including trade unions. The Young Communist League(YCL) sent 700 young Americans to Venezuela for the event. There, claims Pecinovsky, they had to actually engage in internal debate as to whether, or not to display the American flag next to the flags of countries like Cuba and Venezuela. If they did, it would be only so as to reclaim it from representing racism and what he calls the Right Wing. That includes the Bush administration, as Pecinovsky later reveals. Going on to call America âthe belly of the beast,â Pecinovsky notes the surprising growth of the Communist Party in America today, claiming an additional 1,500 â 2,000 new members this year, just through the Internet. That number does not include results from ground-level activism and recruiting, according to Pecinovsky. <iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/1eb5V6XjkLo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> In the above video, Pecinovsky defines Progressive Internationalismin terms of how to isolate and defeat what he calls the âultra Rightâ in the US. Bear in mind, to him, that term means free market Capitalism and traditional forms of liberty America has traditionally embraced, as well as the previous Bush administration. When speaking of the Leftâs âIraqi comrades,â and again in speaking about Afghanistan, Pecinovskyâs and the greater Leftâs view is, they are organizing domestically to beat America abroad, as well as at home, including while we are at war. Lest some critics want to dismiss Pecinovsky as some far Leftist fanatic, one only need look to the Peace Movement - which he also addresses, to understand how his progressivism is the very same as that of todayâs mainstream Democratic Party. In many ways, it was said Peace Movement and its propaganda, circulated by a complicit media, that so tipped the scales against former President Bush, opening the way for Obama to win the WHite House in 2008. It was former Democrat Vice President Al Gore who accused then President Bush of betraying the countryover Iraq, not some minor Communist activist lecturing a class in Missouri. Those unwilling, or unable to make the very real connection between a Pecinovsky and the Democrat administration we currently have in Washington are simply putting their heads in the sand. As if to highlight that point, Pecinovsky mentions how his and the Democratâs anti-American agenda is closely tied to who holds sway in the White House and Congress. He is not talking revolution, but a taking over of America from within, with what he identifies as a âlarger movement.â Thatâs todayâs Left - in practice not theory. And that is precisely what was happening in Washington, until the political reversals of 2010. Was not ObamaCare dictated to us, despite an election in Massachusettes clearly identifying any American majority opinion as opposed to it? Moving on from the Peace Movement, to Labor, Pecinovsky runs through the well-known alliances making up todayâs far Left as part of a unified âlarger movement. âAlmost every member of our (communist) organization is a member of a union, is a member of a coalition, is a member of neighborhood association. Is a member of a peace organization.â WHile he didnât say it, how do they differ, especially âneighborhood association,â from community organizer? They donât. And we know who the community-organizer-in-chief is in America today, do we not? In terms of unity, he talks of the existing alliances between many nationally recognized groups and movements through which he and others organize to bring about â¦ change, I suppose. What the Communist Pecinovsky is part of is not simply some ten member group meeting monthly in a basement somewhere. He makes it quite clear how broad and networked is todayâs Progressive movement through much larger organizations of, ultimately, like-minded groups with large memberships. Capitalism is âthe ultimate enemy,â says Pecinovsky at 4:20 into the second video. The goal, he says, is not âduel unionism,â in which some even further Left splits off on his own. What they do and have done already is infiltrate groups already in existence. The mobs that recently swarmed Wisconsin, issuing violent threats to Governor Walker and lawmakers did not simply appear out of nowhere. And now itâs busy trying to recall some of the latter. Finally, to think that a university selling this anti-American, anti-Capitalist ideology would get $400 million in taxpayer dollars, only to squander some portion of it on classes and an institute of some kind to poison young minds against the very country that built and now largely funds said institution, is only adding insult to injury.
