Notice that XO didn't show FDR didn't turn into a Fabian Socialist.   In fact, in numerous posts to him I've proven that FDR did exactly what the Fabian Society wanted.   There is no debating XO at this point.  He just RUNNING, like he always does when this topic comes up.   Don't be fooled.   Ask yourself why he's lying about this, folks.   Why he and other LF leftists are so desperate to dismiss the influence of Fabian Socialism ... to keep you from looking deeper into the topic ... from reading my posts about it.    I'll tell you why ... because public exposure of Fabian Socialist (i.e., communist) influence on the democRAT"ic" party and the US government the past hundred years is the number one fear of the left.  That, more than anything, could make crush their *dreams* of "remoulding" the world.   Just saying ...

John Maynard Keynes was personally a financial genius. He traded on Wall Street and made millions.

 

Again, note that XO hasn't disproven ANYTHING I've posted about Keynes on numerous threads.   He's RUNNING.   And here he is again defending a Fabian Socialist/communist.   Yet he claims he's a capitalist.  By the way, lot of communists and Fabian Socialists are wealthy.   XO would try to tell you it ain't so (has on occasion), but he's wrong.   Wealth does not preclude what I've posted.   The elite socialist/communists of the world are almost always filthy rich ... at the expense of everyone else in the long run.  Why is it that XO is so desperate to keep you from learning about Fabian Socialism.   Ask yourself that, folks.

How am I preventing anyone from learning about Fabian Socialism?

By telling them that you are a bore?

Lookit: if the Fabians had a plan to turn the US into a Communist state, and they controlled FDR, who held power for SIXTEEN (16) years, how is it that we do not already have a Communist state?

You are correct. He could have served until 1948, but he died in the first year of his fourth term. He failed to select a fellow Fabian conspirator. Apparently Harry Truman was not a Fabian.

So sorry! I apologize I just was not thinking.

See what I mean, folks?   He continues RUNNING from the facts I've presented, but like a Truther, can't stop digging.  First, as has already been pointed out, FDR was not President for 16 years.   Only 12.   And I think I'll let Arthur Schlesinger Jr answer the rest of what he says: "There seem to be no inherent obstacle to the GRADUAL ADVANCE of Socialism in the US through a series of New Deals."   As I've pointed out numerous times (I guess XO repeatedly missed it), Fabian Socialism's #1 tactic for advancing it's agenda is gradualism.  Even more so than stealth.   From the very beginning, they rebelled against Marx's believe that the change to a communist society would come about through *revolution*.  No, they said ... we need to gradually infiltrate the institutions of society to make it happen.  

 

Numerous Fabian Socialists spoke of this gradualism.   Stuart Chase wrote extensively about this in one of his books which I've discussed on several occasions (I guess XO repeatedly missed that too).  HG Wells even wrote a book about it in 1928.  It was titled "The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution" and was on how collectivism could be embedded in a society without arousing alarm or opposition. Here's the book: http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks13/1303661h.html  (another one that XO won't read).    In fact, in his 1921 book, "Russia in the Shadow", he wrote "I believe that through a vast sustained educational campaign the existing capitalist system can be civilized into a Collectivist world system."  Read the book.   You'll see he wasn't talking about 16 year effort.   And XO knows it.   He just doesn't want you to look any closer at what's really going on.   Because, as I said, that the #1 threat to seeing Fabianism triump.
 

Indeed, in recent years the Fabian Society has even changed the symbol it uses to represent its organization.   It's no longer a wolf in sheep's clothing like that seen in Shaw's Fabian Window.   That was too revealing, I suppose.   Now the symbol is this ...

 

Fabian-tortoise-15.jpg

 

... a tortoise.   That about says it all, doesn't it, folks?  

 

XO is trying to deceive you again.  Don't be fooled.   Ask yourself why he's so desperate to dismiss Fabianism and what it's been doing for the past 100 years.   Just saying ...

XO continues running.  And continues to debate like a Truther.   And continues to LIE.   Don't be so sure that Truman wasn't a Fabian Socialist.   After all, most experts had written off Truman in the 1948 election.    But the Americans for Democratic Action ... a leftist organization that grew out of the Union for Democratic Action (UDA) (which was formed by former members of the Socialist Party of America) coordinated the efforts of local AFL and CIO unions on Truman’s behalf, organized college campuses through Students for Democratic Action (the student affiliate of ADA), and had ADA volunteers worked the precincts.  And Truman won, along with 79 Congressional candidates endorsed by the ADA (nine were actually ADA members).   Hubert Humphrey was one of the 79.   As a result, President Truman was beholden to the ADA and according to Edward R. Annis, a past president of the American Medical Association:  “Surely it was no coincidence that Truman would address Congress with an eleven-item wish list, and that eight of those items would appear on the platform adopted at the ADA annual convention. And surely it was no coincidence that the most sweeping proposal on that wish list and on the ADA platform was a renewed call for socialized medicine through national health insurance, and that the same proposal had first appeared two decades before on the platform of the Socialist party of America.”

 

And consider this.   Not only did FDR ignore communists in his administration (I discussed that at length in the past to the sound of CRICKETS), so did Truman.  In fact, in 1946 J Edgar Hoover again went to the White House and provided Harry Truman with a list of known Communists and sympathizers still in the government, and Truman's response was: "What am I going to do? Give those @#%&* Republicans up on the Hill something to bash me with."   Don't be so sure Truman wasn't a Fabian Socialist, folks.  

 

In fact, John Beaty in his 1951 book, "The Iron Curtain Over America" (https://www.unz.com/book/john_beaty__the-iron-curtain-over-america/ ), said there were 7 people who share the most responsibility for establishing the communist grip on the world. They were Marx, Engels, Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin, Truman and FDR.   I might rank Sidney Webb higher than Truman, but his name is on that list for a reason.   Not only did he ignore or ineptly deal with the Soviet threat and it's infiltration of America's government, he arguably handed mainland China to the Soviet supported Chinese communists.  In fact, President Truman announced to the world on December 15, 1945, that unless communists were admitted to the established government of China, aid from America would no longer be forthcoming. At the same time, he dispatched General Marshall to China with orders to stop the mopping up of communist forces.  Plus, he prevented the Nationalists from getting the arms they needed to counter the Soviet backed Communist Chinese.   So in the end, China fell to the communists.   

 

Then there is what happened in Korea.   As noted in Beaty's book, 

 

Quote

 

As at Pearl Harbor, the attack came on a Sunday morning — June 2, 1950. On that day North Korean Communist troops crossed the 38th parallel from the Soviet Zone to the recently abandoned U.S. Zone in Korea and moved rapidly to the South. Our government knew from several sources about these Communist troops before we moved our troops out on January 1, 1949, leaving the South Koreans to their fate. For instance, in March, 1947, Lieutenant General John R. Hodge, U.S. Commander in Korea, stated “that Chinese Communist troops were participating in the training of a Korean army of 500,000 in Russian-held North Korea” {The China Story, p. 51). 

 

Despite our knowledge of the armed might of the forces in North Korea; despite our vaunted failure to arm our former wards, the South Koreans; despite our “hands off” statements placing Formosa and Korea outside our defense perimeter and generally giving Communists the green light in the Far East; and despite President Truman’s statement as late as May 4, 1950, that there would be “no shooting war/’ we threw United States troops from Japan into that unhappy peninsula — without the authority of Congress — to meet the Communist invasion. 

 

Our troops from Japan had been trained for police duty rather than as combat units and were “without the proper weapons” (P.L. Franklin in National Republic, January, 1951). This deplorable fact was confirmed officially by former Defense Secretary, Louis Johnson, who testified that our troops in Korea “were not equipped with the things that you would need if you were to fight a hostile enemy. They were staffed and equipped for occupation, not for war or an offensive” (testimony before combined Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees of the Senate, June, 1951, as quoted by U.S. News and World Report, June 22, 1951, pp. 21-22). Our administration had seen to it also that those troops which became our South Korean allies were also virtually unarmed, for the Defense Department “had no establishment for Korea. It was under the State Department at that time” (Secretary Johnson’s testimony) .

 

Under such circumstances, can any objective thinker avoid the conclusion that the manipulators of United States policy confidently anticipated the defeat and destruction of our forces, which Secretary Acheson advised President Truman to commit to Korea in June, 1950? 

 

But the leftist manipulators of the State Department whether in that department or on the outside — were soon confronted by a miracle they had not foreseen. The halting of the North Korean Communists by a handful of men under such handicaps was one of the remarkable and heroic pages in history credit for which must be shared by our brave front-line fighting men; their field commanders including Major General William F. Dean, who was captured by the enemy, and Lieutenant General Walton H. Walker, who died in Korea; and their Commander-in-Chief, General of the Army Douglas MacArthur.

 

 

Read the rest of what follows in that description of what happened in China and Korea, folks.  It shows a shocking betrayal of our non-communist allies by Truman and his administration. And when MacArthur, despite the odds, managed to hang on and had a path to victory, what did Truman do?   He fired him.  And the result soon after was a North Korean victory which we are still paying for today.   So don't be so sure Truman wasn't a Fabian Socialist, folks.  He acted like one when it came to challenging communism.  Much like XO.

 

On the domestic front, Truman promoted the rest of his 21 point "Fair Deal", a program to continue and build on the New Deal progressivism of FDR.  "Every segment of our population and every individual has a right to expect from our Government a fair deal." - Harry Truman.  It not only called for a national health insurance plan, but Federal aid to education, major tax cut for low-income workers (but a $4 billion dollar tax increase), expanding Social Security coverage, a farm assistance program, expansion of public housing programs, a substantial increase in the minimum wage, repeal of the labor union-weakening Taft-Hartley Act, a new TVA-style program to create public works projects, creation of a federal Department of Welfare, price controls, and Federal aid to education.  So don't be so sure Truman wasn't a Fabian Socialist, folks.  He acted like one when it came to increasing the size and power of government.

You just don't know when to stop digging, commie.   You're original statement about Trumbo is that his "films were not at all propagandistic."   You said "McCarthy had no right to ask him about his political affiliation. The McCarthy hearings were witch hunts and totally unamerican."  I'll give you my response again ... 

 


Continuing ...

 

 

LOL!  Again you're deceptive about your defense of the Chinese Communists.   You initially defended the Communist Party by saying "It has unified China".   I responded by asking you "At what cost? Mao alone is responsible for perhaps 80 million deaths. His Great Leap Forward killed upwards of 45 million people in just 4 years. That’s in the ballpark of the number who died in all of World War Two. Furthermore, Communist China's regime has inspired/created/empowered/enabled other cruel communist regimes … like Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge and North Korea … that have also killed millions and millions of people.  And your response to that?   CRICKETS.

 

You also forget that I pointed out the reason the Chinese economy grew so fast ... by building dozens of EMPTY CITIES and massive military spending (that was aimed at US).   I also pointed out that China's 10% growth rate (that you boasted about like a proud father) wasn't all that remarkable.   I provide a chart of real per capita GDP for the US from 1800 to 1880 and noted that from 1866 to 1880 (14 years), the US per capita GDP grew from 1600 to 3340 ... a growth rate of 7.8%. And they weren’t building empty cities. Nor was there massive military spending. In fact, they were busy demobilizing after the Civil War and military spending had collapsed as a percent of GDP.  I also posted the capita GDP of the US from 1800 to now in constant dollars.   From 1820 to 1860 (not just a dozen but FORTY years), the US managed to maintain a 6% growth rate. Again, without building empty cities or massive military spending.

And finally I pointed out that in 2010, after a decade of 10% GDP growth, the per capita GDP of China was still where the US was in 1878. You're response to that?  CRICKETS.
 

Finally you offered this defense of the Communist Chinese ... "It is probably safe to say that the Chinese have learned more from Mao's mistakes than the US's leaders have learned from our biggest mistakes, namely slavery, segregation and discrimination."   I pointed out that "apparently you haven’t realized that the Chinese people are themselves slaves. Especially if you don’t happen to be in the privileged Communist Party. So I don’t think they’ve learned any lesson. And there is NO diversity in China. 90% of its citizens belonging to the Han Chinese group. There is far more segregation and discrimination than in the US. In fact, Chinese language is filled with derogatory terms for white people, Japanese, Koreans, Blacks (yeah, try being black in China), Indians, and even different Chinese groups. And they are still being used. Plus, there is a huge class structure. Good forbid you are in the rural class because then you will be exploited. And good luck if you wish to move to somewhere other than your designated hometown. And good luck if you want to practice a religion."  

 

I concluded that "You need to take off those rose colored glasses, XO.  You sound like an idiot."   And you still do.

 


Notice folks, that XO is not offering a rebuttal to the charge that FDR was a hardcore socialist/communist.   He RAN from all the evidence I provided showing that FDR is a Fabian Socialist who filled his advisor group and administration with Fabian Socialists and outright communists.  f FDR couldnot  turn this county into a communist natuon (and he clearly  did not) in sixteen years, thenhe was totlaly incompetent, or that was jot his goal.
 And what he *accomplished* was to en

I

act what the agenda of Fabian Society (i.e., communist party).    Now of course you consider him better than all those others, but then you are communist who would naturally admire *the works* of a Fabian Socialist like FDR.

 

 

Blaa blaa blaa.   Go ahead, XO ... regurgitate your meme and ignore every fact I've noted in thread after thread about all those things, XO.   Toss out your unsupported ad-hominens. That's what TRUTHERS do and it's all you have left since the facts are clearly not on your side.

 

 

You're not fooling any one any longer, XO.   You're RUNNING from any discussion of the facts and their implications.   Everyone can see it.

 


RUN, RUN, RUN, Commie.

 

 

You've lied over and over and over and I've proven it.   And I know you LIED (not just been misinformed) because even after you've been shown what you said was false, you continue to regurgitate the same claims.   You can't hide from your past on an internet forum like this, XO.   It's there in black and white.

I have told ZERO lies, you Fascist dolt

MacArthur's plan was to drop seven or eight nuclear bombs, beginning another war,making parts of China and North Korea uninhabitable.

The first response of your  A-hole rightwingers was to run MacArthur for president. on the GOP ticket.Then they discovered that his plan was to reconquer China for Chiang Kai-Shek and they chose Eisenhower instead.He was a much poorer choice than Stevenson,but he was at least not a warmongerlike MacArthur.

Korea was conquered by Japan after T. Roosevelt said,"Japan should have Korea". When Japan surrendered, there was a Communist partisan faction, supported by the USSR and 

members of the Japanese puppet government, supported by the US. Both sides then began to send commandos across the border to assassinate the leaders of the other side. Both sides were brutal dictatorships. The US could and should have stopped these attacks by diplomacy, but this was not even attempted. So we got  a war.

No. Just pointing out what is rather obvious. His posts do absolutely nothing to deter/stop my reading about the topic. It is really that simple. I have read lots of posts on internet forums and doing so does not put up any roadblocks. I could in a few seconds, click + on the browser, type in something about the topic but I choose not to. Why you bother responding to me when I (and everyone else who maintains a body temperature of 98.6 degrees) knows that you will NEVER get you want is comical.

"All the original Fabian Socialists have one important thing in common. They are dead."   Here's another ... Fabian Socialism "was a program in the UK that ended long, long ago."   You're a LIAR, XO and it's easy to prove.

And as before, you continue to run from the proof that Fabian Socialists have had a significant effect on America.

 

And they continue to do so, despite your claims they are all dead.

Well, I consider myself to be a part of "folks". Most would considering that you do not exactly outline who these "folks" are. .

 

My life is great. When I leave here, I will not care in the least about this forum, you (or anyone else on here), and will go on to more entertaining and rewarding pursuits. Fixing my dryer, going outside with my kids, going to a concert, etc. are of vastly more benefit than pointless discussions with strangers.
