What do those European election results tell us?

They tell us that the Cloward-Piven strategy works.  Here the author argues that the plan is coming to fruition in the wrong countries—not in the US (so far), but in Europe.  Let’s thank God that we can now see in advance what will happen and stop it before it’s too late for us.

From Pajamas Media (hat tip: Cathy):

The now-infamous “Cloward-Piven Strategy” outlined by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven in 1966 proposed a clear roadmap to socialism: get so many people addicted to government entitlements that the economic system collapses, and in the resulting chaos the populace will demand and vote for a new economic system in which everyone is supported by the state.


…..once you get 50+% of the population hooked on “free” government money, there’s no turning back — they will vote for socialists every time.


The message is clear: Once enough voters are on the dole, regardless of your party’s ideology or what label it has, you will win elections if you promise to to keep the free money flowing. This was Cloward-Piven’s point, and they turned out to be frighteningly correct.

Read it all, it’s very persuasive and learn how a conflicted Obama keeps our economy in limbo.

By the way, Obama surely knew Francis Fox Piven while he was at Columbia.  In fact, he probably knew Richard Cloward too since the old socialist only died in 2001.

Cloward and Piven were also fans of Saul Alinsky who said you had to keep the ‘have-nots’ fighting with the ‘haves.’  Indeed it’s also why some (US Sate Department’s Refugee Resettlement Program* is just one example) are pouring large numbers of destitute immigrants into the country—to expand the welfare rolls and continue the class warfare in hopes of bringing on a socialist revolution.

* Check out this post I wrote yesterday about how the demographics of Western New York are changing dramatically with the Catholic and Jewish populations declining as the Muslim population increases due largely to refugee resettlement of mostly impoverished people—Somalis and Bosnians.



  1. Even if Obama knew about the Coward-Piven strategy (which I doubt), he is not a socialist. He doesn’t even try to be a socialist. He aporoved tax breaks for the rich in 2010 and in his State of the Union speech in 2012 he advocated for a lower corporate income tax rate. He has also supported so-called “free trade” agreements (ones with Panama, Columbia, South Korea and an upcoming one, the Trans-Pacific Partnership). Now, on the strategy itself, I think that its not a good one. Making 50%+ of a population dependent on the govt.’s money could maybe even limit the ability of citizens to “alter or abolish” government, which is guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence. The elections in France and Greece recently show people are tired with austerity. Greek leaders of the major parties accepted a bailout from the IMF, when this was opppsed by the public by an overwhelming margin. Those people that accepted the bailout were defeated at the polls. In France, the warmonger Sarkozy gave tax breaks to the rich and cut public sector jobs, a plan of austerity (also he campaigned on a very harsh immigration policy) He was voted out and replaced by a “mild-mannered socialist” as Reuters described Francois Hollande who will raise taxes on the rich and
    reverse the Sarkozy’s plan of austerity. Hollande may be socialist, but Obama is not. Even though Obama advocates for taxes on the rich (dumping Bush Tax cuts), his adherance to that is unlikely since he approved a bill which allowed for tax breaks for wealthy. The truth is that Obama is a corporate imperialist, someone who isn’t even close to socialism in any way, shape or form.
