Pushing Society Into Crisis and Economic Collapse
Radical leftist Frances Fox Piven has complained Glenn Beck incited threats of violence against her according to the New York Times. Piven, a self described Socialist and Marxist, is in her sixth decade working to bring down American Liberty. Further, says the Times, a “liberal nonprofit group,” the Center for Constitutional Rights, has asked the President of Fox News to muzzle Beck.
John Hinderaker wrote about the incident in a post you cannot miss. You see the Left has a broad strategy to “prepare the battlefield” for the coming months and years by shutting down conservative communication. The wild vicious false charges after the Tucson massacre, was part of stage I which is still in operation. The Piven ploy launches stage II. Here, in part is what Hinderaker wrote Saturday:
The Left’s attempt to link the Tucson shootings to angry rhetoric (not theirs, of course) was stage one of a broader strategy —what both military men and political strategists refer to as preparing the battlefield. The movement to feign nonpartisanship at the State of the Union address by seating Republicans and Democrats together is another aspect of this stage. At the same time, the Left is moving on to stage two —an effort to cash in on battlefield preparation by attacking specific figures on the right and trying to shut down speech that the Left finds inconvenient.
At the moment, the second most-read article at the New York Times site is this one: “Spotlight From Glenn Beck Brings a CUNY Professor Threats.”
On his daily radio and television shows, Glenn Beck has elevated once-obscure conservative thinkers onto best-seller lists. Recently, he has elevated a 78-year-old liberal academic to celebrity of a different sort, in a way that some say is endangering her life.
Frances Fox Piven, a City University of New York professor, has been a primary character in Mr. Beck’s warnings about a progressive take-down of America. Ms. Piven, Mr. Beck says, is responsible for a plan to “intentionally collapse our economic system.”
Let’s pause there for a moment. First of all, Ms. Piven is not a “liberal academic.” By her own description, she is a radical, a leftist and a Marxist. Nor is she merely an academic; she has been a far-left activist for decades. The Times continues:
Never mind that Ms. Piven’s radical plan to help poor people was published 45 years ago, when Mr. Beck was a toddler. Anonymous visitors to his Web site have called for her death, and some, she said, have contacted her directly via e-mail.
In response, a liberal nonprofit group, the Center for Constitutional Rights, wrote to the chairman of Fox News, Roger Ailes, on Thursday to ask him to put a stop to Mr. Beck’s “false accusations” about Ms. Piven.
“Mr. Beck is putting Professor Piven in actual physical danger of a violent response,” the group wrote. …”

Hinderaker’s post is critical. You’ll get the balance of the Times shameful job and an excellent analysis from John. Do not miss it at Power Line. If you are not familiar with The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis (or even if you are), get a short primer from a September 28, 2008 American Thinker article by James Simpson. This is what America should have known two and a half years ago. You must know it now. You will find it is difficult to overstate the revolutionary Marxist mindset of these people and the current application. We must know what we are facing. David Horowitz summarizes the strategy thusly:
“The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.”
(The Center for Constitutional Rights, “is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. . . . CCR . . . is committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.”) Understand the battle plan?
Finally, Glenn Beck (similar to other high profile Conservative communicators) has 15 active death threats at any one time.
