Occupy Hands Out Marxist Book in Spanish

The Alabama Statehouse was occupied today.

Several hundred protesters, mostly Hispanic were joined by a few clergy ostensibly to protest Alabama's immigration reform efforts. By all indications, the Spanish speaking crowd (including a number of children) were really used as "useful idiots" in the minds of organizers.

The real agenda appears to be brutally political.

One observer commented on the methods of the group saying, "It is really offensive to me, as a Christian, that my faith would be used against me".

Speaker after speaker, from various leftist clergy to young children, invoked Christian messages like "loving thy neighbor" or "we are all God's children". So was this a Christian group calling for Christian reawakening, or a group with a hidden agenda using the Alinsky tactic of cynically invoking a rule (in this case Christianity) and making one's opponent live by it?

The Bible says love your neighbor, but it also says to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's.

Moreover, the Bible is full of commands to work hard and prosper with man's chief end to overcome his personal sin nature. By contrast, communism's chief end is overcoming material deprivation, specifically makng that deprivation the responsibility of someone else.

The protesters thus are being very selective here about what parts of the Bible they like.

Holding Catholic icons and invoking Christian platitudes, the group went on to distribute communist propaganda, and shout rants in Spanish.  The worst parts came after the three hours of speeches and protests ended.

The next group scheduled to speak in front of the Capitol was a pro-life group. The "Christian" communists then proceeded to attempt to shout down the completely unrelated group. One radical came unhinged yelling "shame on you" until one of her cohorts pulled her back. Another covered her head with a tee shirt and went around during the prayer rudely photographing the pro-lifers in prayer.

One of the most noteworthy facets of the attacks is not who they criticize, but rather who they do not criticize. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) under Obama came under sharp criticism in February of 2011 for having a quota of 400,000 deportations.

When they actually hit that record in October, over two months ahead of schedule, it became a curious record for Obama to attain. He has the distinction of holding the single "season" record as well as the lifetime achievement award for Presidential deportations.

Yet his re-election campaign has made a central tenet out of the narrative that Republicans are genocidal maniacs in their zeal to remove "brown people" from their midst. The end game of course is to convince masses of "brown people" from a range of ethnic groups to look past Obama's dismal record and utter failure to improve their lot.  

Most of all, he wants to convince them that Republican control would be much worse than him.

Their dirty little secret is that the "educational materials" distributed at these events is the Communist Manifesto, translated into Spanish. 

So are groups like the ACIJ really about immigrant rights or something deeper? Who paid for a Hollywood producer, and self-described "lapsed Catholic crypto-Buddhist" to come in and shoot a series of short films for a website

A simple look at the three groups that are taking credit and we know: 

Center for American Progress - 
Mark Rudd was a leader of the '60s mass radical organisation Students for a Democratic Society and its terrorist splinter group-Weather Underground Organization.
Rudd claims that the Center for American Progress serves as a "government in waiting" for the Obama administration.
In 2007 Mark Rudd served on the board of the Movement for a Democratic Society, which is the parent body of Progressives for Obama, the leading leftist umbrella group behind Obama's presidential campaign. 
America's Voice Education Fund Founded to make citizens of all illegal immigrants, their website is loaded with political hyperbole against only Republicans and specifically attacks on Romney. There is no mention of Obama's record 1.2 million deportations.

Define American, a project of the hard leftist Tides Center -
Founded by Jose Antonio Vargas, a self-professed illegal immigrant and radical leftist homosexual. The Tides Center, behind the May Day Protests in Alabama (featuring leftist clergy) and 39 other events across the country, is run by Founder and CEO, Drummond Pike. Among his contemporaries and allies on the hard left, Drummond Pike counts Wade Rathke, the founder of the exposed and now defunct ACORN organization.
May Day rallies across the country, (including the Montgomery Alabama event ostensibly about "Loving Thy Neighbor" and just ordinary folks wanting "common sense" immigration reform), was actually organized by extremely well-funded, hard leftist front groups.  
None of them have any criticism of the Deporter in Chief.
Alabama lawmakers, and right-minded Alabamians who simply support the rule of law find themselves caught in the cross hairs, held up as exhibit A in the cynical, hard-left narrative. Will they stay the course or cave to the pressure?
"I would like to call upon America to be more careful with its trust and prevent those...because of short-sightedness and still others out of self-interest, from falsely using the struggle for peace and for social justice to lead you down a false road.
Because they are trying to weaken you; they are trying to disarm your strong and magnificent country in the face of this fearful threat...
I call upon you: ordinary working men of not let yourselves become weak."
