Following Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs’ ungracious comments about the “professional left,” the usual suspects mounted the corporate media and began venting about the Obama administration.
One such luminary was filmmaker Michael Moore. Mike told Keith Olbermann at MSNBC that the so-called left wants to seize the banks and throw out the bums but the Obama administration simply will not listen. Mike’s naiveté — more likely his mendacity, since he did not roll off the turnip truck last week — will undoubtedly stir the righteous indignation of so-called progressives. In fact, it is designed to do so.
Moore is a master at playing the false right-left paradigm like a Stradivarius. He would have us believe there is a difference between Republicans and Democrats. In November Democrats need to come out in numbers to make sure Republicans are denied either or both houses of Congress. But Gibbs’ comment — the “professional left” hankers for Canadian healthcare and the dismantlement of the Pentagon, wishes not framed in reality — brightly reveals (once again, ad nauseam) there is very little difference between the two sides of the bankster party. Mike and far too many liberals suffer from a debilitating myopia when it comes to understanding the true nature of the establishment, regardless of party stripe or vapid slogans.

In another segment, Keith Olbermann dissed Karl Marx. “By the way, for the Marxists — Marx is dead, and he was a lousy thinker,” said Keith, to which Michael Rectenwald responded: “Keith Olbermann is judging MARX as a thinker? That’s like a snail judging the locomotive abilities of a cougar. Olbermann wouldn’t know a thinker if one bit him in the a$$. Only a complete moron could say that Marx was a ‘lousy thinker.’ Marx was a genius of the very highest order. But then, Olbermann wouldn’t know that. He’s likely never read a single paragraph of Marx. I do find it interesting that the bourgeois left finds it necessary, apropos of nothing, to slander Marx. They must know what’s in store.”
You bet they know what is in store. Even Olbermann — who epitomizes the modern bourgeois left, or at least the privileged limo escorted variety — does know what is in store, albeit as he reads between the lines of his teleprompter.
As for Marx, he was a bankster hireling in much the same way Olbermann is. Marx’s heirs, namely Lenin and Trotsky, were financed by Wall Street banksters as researcher and author Antony Sutton revealed. Of course, this fact was long ago struck from the official history and is rejected out of hand by the corporate media and academics because it does not “fit the accepted conceptual spectrum of political left and political right,” writes Sutton. “Bolsheviks are at the left end of the political spectrum and Wall Street financiers are at the right end; therefore, we implicitly reason, the two groups have nothing in common and any alliance between the two is absurd,” but this is not the case.

Sutton offers a “mature understanding of recent history” and declares there “has been a continuing, albeit concealed, alliance between international political capitalists and international revolutionary socialists — to their mutual benefit.” Both exploit collectivism and remain “bitter enemies of laissez-faire entrepreneurs.”
Karl Marx, as Olbermann would have it, was not a “lousy thinker.” He postulated a political philosophy shrewdly employed by banksters who never saw a totalitarian system they did not adore. Socialism is an ideal tool for elite control freaks. It has nothing to do with emancipating the workers.
Once again, I quote Gary Allen: “If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.”
Michael Moore, who claims to be a good and conscientious liberal, is selling his comrades short. He is feeding them into an economic meat grinder by encouraging the lot to vote for the Democrat side of the bankster-collectivist party come November.
Did I hear “Won’t Get Fooled Again” lilting in the background?
