Yep Son, The Bolshevik Is Us

History may not repeat itself,
but it does rhyme a lot.

- Mark Twain
In 1995, David Luisi became sole custodial parent of his three children. His estranged wife Carrie relinquished her claim to the children because she was a chronic depressive and acknowledged that she could not provide adequate care. David was awarded formal custody in '96, and the kids flourished. But in 1997, the mother - with a new boyfriend and a brightened outlook - falsely alleged that David had slapped his daughter. DSS immediately removed the children to the mother's care. Two years elapsed while David sought a hearing, awaited the hearing outcome, and was finally cleared by DSS.

The result of a subsequent court hearing was that David's child support was increased from $405 to $450 per week retroactively, creating a default of $20,000. But David was allowed regular visitation during the year in which the court deliberated whether to enable Carrie to move the kids away from their dad. In the end, Judge Jeremy A. Stahlin enabled her, leaving David with $30,000 in attorney's fees, a net income of $150 a week, and financial prohibition from seeing his distant children. source

This is but one representative tree in a forest of social upheaval that is best called "Boomer Bolshevism" - to distinguish it from "Russian Bolshevism" with which it merely rhymes. The Boomer nihilist is uniquely American, but is paradigmatically identical.
To whit:

Boomer Bolshevism

In 1969, then Governor Ronald Reagan signed the California Family Law Act; the nation's first No Fault Divorce decree.

"The law limited the grounds for divorce to irreconcilable differences and incurable insanity." (source)

Insanity indeed; incurable, uh we'll see. Within twenty years "no-fault" was established law in nearly all states, and the unique, American nuclear family was being decimated, resulting in a legal wall built between fathers such as David Luisi, and his children. Slowly, but inexorably, the heterosexual female parent is also becoming fair game to "social" agencies:

" Department of Social Services workers, under police escort, seized Diane Ross's newborn baby, Aaron, from her arms at Mary Lane Hospital, and plan to place the child in a gay couple's custody. DSS officials cited as evidence of Ross's "neglect" that neighbors witnessed one of her other two children walking alone in their front yard in 1999, which was the basis for agency officials' removal of the children. Her 4-year-old is already placed with the gay couple, but her 5-year-old was mauled to death by a Rottweiler whose owners were given custody of that child. DSS officials commented, 'Cognizant of Ms. Ross's desire to care for her infant, we are nonetheless mandated to insure that the infant's safety and best interests are protected in a safe environment.' " source

"Two decades ago hysterical liberals created a monster ---- an unaccountable Gestapo known today as Child Protective Services. Crazed therapists testified before Congress that 75 percent of parents were child abusers and that a new national bureaucracy was necessary to protect children. Congress obliged the therapists' request and unleashed a Frankenstein. Several years ago the local CPS in Wenatchee, Washington, got the word from the state office to find some cases to justify its budget. Thus began a modern day Salem Witch Hunt that resulted in the arrest of 43 adults on 30,000 counts of sex abuse against 60 children.
It was all a fabrication to justify a budget." source

When whole races and peoples conspire to propagate gigantic mute lies in the interest of tyrannies and shams, why should we care anything about the trifling lies told by individuals?
- Mark Twain
It is no small irony that Governor, and later, President Reagan was the leader who railed against the welfare state and student activists, and ultimately prevailed against the Evil Empire when he declared, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

Similarly ironic, it was coincident to Reagan's conservative ascent, that Bolsheviki like NOW, the ACLU, the NEA, and NAMBLA became public icons in their respective sectors - setting the shabby standards for today's public discourse. The giant redwoods of the evolved forest of Boomer Bolshevism are; abortion on demand, normalization of sodomy, normalization of pedophilia, normalization of drugging rather than disciplining, with beastiality about to lift its leg on the remaining oaks of the Republic. Agenda has insidiously displaced Morality.

Adam was not alone in the Garden of Eden, however, and does not deserve all the credit; much is due to Eve, the first woman, and Satan, the first consultant.
- Mark Twain - Notebook, 1867
The general populous scratches its collective head when NOW falls silent on the subject of adultery when committed by the like-minded, elected Bolsheviki; or when NOW becomes chief fundraiser and cheerleader for a mom admitted of savagely killing her five children. Why such scratching? NOW has always considered adultery to be a welcome relief from the drudgery of lifelong marital commitment (except when committed by conservatives). NOW has always considered childbirth a disease, and filicide the unique right of Roe's cohort. What better way to institutionalize and expand the Roe doctrine than to excuse post-natal filicide as a mere biological side effect of the disease of childbirth - postpartum depression.

Russian Bolshevism

"When the (Russian) Bolsheviki came into power in 1917 they regarded the family, like every other 'bourgeois' institution, with fierce hatred, and set out with a will to destroy it. 'To clear the family out of the accumulated dust of the ages we had to give it a good shakeup, and we did,' declared Madame Smidovich, a leading Communist and active participant in the recent discussion. ...
So one of the first decrees of the Soviet Government abolished the term 'illegitimate children.' This was done simply by equalizing the legal status of all children, whether born in wedlock or out of it, and now the Soviet Government boasts that Russia is the only country where there are no illegitimate children. ...
Many women of light behavior found marriage and childbearing a profitable occupation. They formed connections with the sons of well-to-do peasants and then blackmailed the father for the support of the children. In some cases peasants have been obliged to sell their last cow or horse in order to settle such alimony claims. The law has created still more confusion because it is retrospective in its operation, so that women can claim support for children born many years ago." source: The Atlantic Monthly | July 1926
Did you hear it? Has not history "rhymed" once more?

Let's take the Pogo perspective; step away from futilely chipping away at the trunks of myriad redwoods, and view the forest for what it is - a massive green wall of Boomer Bolshevism. Yep, sons and daughters of the "greatest generation," we have indeed met the enemy, and it is us.

If you have an important point to make,
don't try to be subtle or clever.
Use a pile driver. Hit the point once.
Then come back and hit it again.
Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.

- Sir Winston Churchill
To destroy this empire of evil, first call it what it is. Name the forest - Boomer Bolshevism, and then the trees - Boomer Bolsheviki. "Liberal / moderate / pro-choice", in all their marvelous diversity, are way too nicey-nice.

Name it, define it, expose its ends, tell its history, betray its lies, identify its leaders, embarass its followers. And finally when all have heard, tear down this wall of national shame.

Meanwhile, say a little prayer for Joe McCarthy and Ronald Reagan. Both had the hutzpah to call a commie, evil.
