Red China’s Mao Zedong, who at the time was Chairman of the Communist Party, solidified his power from 1966 through 1971 by proclaiming a Cultural Revolution. This was his attempt to purge Capitalism and the powerful elite who were still influential in China.
“Millions of people were persecuted in the violent factional struggles that ensued across the country, and suffered a wide range of abuses including public humiliation, arbitrary imprisonment, torture, sustained harassment, and seizure of property.” – Wikipedia
He felt that the Capitalists-Bourgeois that still existed in China were weakening his ideological beliefs and efforts. His revolution within a revolution was successful for a while until President Richard Nixon of the United States visited in 1972 to normalize relations with China. Mao died four years later in 1976 when the West started to successfully change China back to a more Capitalist-Bourgeois state, the China we know today.
Change historically seems to come with an individual who will stop at nothing to impose his or her beliefs on the masses. Unfortunately, for those masses, the changer never remains loyal and pure to the masses they've led.
You know the usual suspects, Hitler, Stalin, Castro, Mao, Pol Pot, Napoleon, Kim Jong-il and now as number 15 on the ranking of all time historical tyrants is Barack Hussein Obama LIST. It’s interesting that President Obama of the United States, so soon, would pop up on an all-time tyrants list.
How could that happen? Especially since Obama has only been in office for five years and has had just two years that his Party controlled Congress.
Tyrants always look and act the same and historians are watching President Obama very closely for those telling traits. But, the masses seem to know already since Gallop’s new poll on the Presidents job performance is now at 39%.
“Gallup's three-day rolling average for the President's approval rating has fallen to 39 percent.” – Breitbart
Obama’s critics have very effectively made public his well-documented lies and attempt to cover up the truths regarding those lies. It’s now starting to show consistently in his polling.
When Mao started his Cultural Revolution he used “Public Humiliation” which Christian, Conservative and Tea Party groups in America have experienced since 2009. The so-called Mainstream Media that seems to get their marching orders from the White House have done everything in their power to humiliate any political candidate and supporter that opposes the policies of this President.
“Arbitrary Imprisonment” has always been effective for both Mao and Obama’s soft revolution. Just the threat of imprisonment by the IRS, NSA, DHS, EPA and the Department of Justice is doing a good job of keeping people in line.
“Sustained Harassment” in Mao’s China meant they never stopped at trying to change your way of thinking. If you believed that Capitalism was good, you would be barraged with reasons why it wasn't healthy to keep following that line of thinking.
Can it not be said that the Obama Administration is continuing to harass and intimidate any thought contrary to his beliefs? His mandated policy changes to all Federal Agencies have transformed his arm into tentacles that reach into every household in America. Healthcare, now being his prize intrusive harassment is about to become America’s nightmare of tyranny.
Last but not least in Mao’s weaponry was the “Seizure of Property.” The Obama Administration has methodically, by using the Internal Revenue Service and all Federal Agencies, to deplete the wealth of anyone who has supported his opponents. In America you don’t have to take ones property away from them. All you have to do is bring a Federal law suit against a person or entity coupled with new exorbitant fines and you can destroy the wealth of any person or group.
Now, I have illustrated to you Mao’s tools used to implement his Cultural Revolution back in 1966 and compared it to the President’s actions.
Americans aren't used to tyranny. Most wouldn't know it if it hit them over the head. But, something’s hitting them over the head now for the first time and it sure doesn't feel familiar.
Americans are confused as to what to call it since they’re not used to it. But we know what it is, don’t we?
