Death by Hyphen: Wisdom from Mark Etterling

A guest article from Mark Etterling.  For more about Mark, CLICK HERE


Throughout history many lands have fallen at the hands of foreign invaders.  Still many more have succumbed to financial ruin, natural disaster, and disease.  However, by far the single greatest cause for the demise of most nations has been the hyphen.  I realize this might sound a bit strange, but it’s true.  A simple little punctuation mark has caused far more chaos to mankind than any invading army could ever dream of.
We are told about how wonderful the concept of multiculturalism is because it allows everyone to be accepted for who they are.  It all sounds wonderful, at least on paper.  We are shown these magical fantasies of everyone from every walk of life getting along in a grand melting pot of tolerance.  However, reality paints a completely different picture from what the brochures of multiculturalism describe.  We are told that because we are all allowed to be different multiculturalism makes us great.  In reality what truly makes us great is when we are able to function as a nation united as one regardless of our differences.  What most people don’t understand is that there is a very profound difference between tolerating our differences and celebrating who we are versus living in a multicultural society.  It is the understanding of that difference that determines whether we are to be a true melting pot society, or one that destroys itself from within.
In our modern society we have become accustomed to the hyphen.  We see it every day in the descriptions that we use.  The modern lingo uses terms like African-American, Jewish-American, Hispanic-American, Middle-Class American, etc. when what we should really be using is the simple term American.  Societies should always seek to promote those things which unite instead of those things that divide.  Sure we all come from differing backgrounds, but what is ultimately of the greatest value is the glue that holds us together.  My best friend is an immigrant who came here from Ireland, but he’ll be the first to correct you if you call him an Irish-American.  He’ll tell you he is first and foremost an American.  He just happens to be of Irish descent.  He gets it.  Two of the greatest Americans to have ever lived, Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. also got it.  It was Lincoln who stated that “A nation divided cannot stand”.  Dr. King’s message wasn’t for us to focus on dividing people by race, but to focus on all people as one regardless of race.
The problem with living in a hyphenated society is that there are an infinite number of possible criteria to divide us by.  How can we ever promote the idea of true equality when the very act of division is only useful for highlighting inequality?  In a hyphenated society there will always be those who are perceived as the “bully” class and those who are perceived as the “victim” class.  The roll of the victim is to demonize the bullies and seek preferential treatment as compensation for having been victimized. Unfortunately, we can’t all be allowed to play the victim roll.  This means that at some point every victim class will attempt their turn at jumping to the front of the line in order to secure their preferential status.  What we should be doing is seeking out the wisdom of the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment whereby all people are viewed through a cultural blindfold to ensure equality.  Instead, it’s like watching shoppers at a Black Friday sale where everyone is attempting to push and elbow their way to the front of the line whereby the inevitable fight breaks out and chaos ensues.  This is why the net result of multiculturalism is ultimately civil war.
Patriotism is the antithesis of multiculturalism.  By definition patriotism promotes a singular national agenda above all others.  We can respect each others background, but only under the umbrella of first and foremost being a people united.  The brain trust of the Left fully understands this which is why they demonize the Right as being overzealous when it comes to patriotic themes.  It’s why they attempt to remove the Pledge of Allegiance and the flag at any opportunity.  The true sinister reason that the Left loves the concept of multiculturalism is because it gives them the opportunity to wield the hyphen as if it were a sword in order to divide and conquer.  You don’t have to take my word for it, just look at all the various ways they attempted to divide us in the last election.  They accused the Right of being racist, of declaring a war on women, of being anti-Hispanic, of being homophobic, of being anti-Islamic, and even of being puppets of the hated 1%.  That way they could go to each group and proclaim to be their protectors to prevent them from falling victim to such bullies.  In truth it was to exploit the use of the victim moniker to secure someone’s trust and thus their vote.
If you listen to the post election punditry the common theme is that Romney lost because he failed to address and embrace all of these different divides.  He didn’t address the issues of the Black community, or women’s issues, or Hispanic concerns. The problem is that he shouldn’t have had to.  The role of the President should be to address the issues that affect us all.  To do anything else would be to promote the very divides that are breaking us apart.  We have allowed ourselves to be sold into the self-serving ruse of multiculturalism by accepting our own hyphenated rolls instead of embracing the singular role as Americans.  Each demographic embraced their own description as victim instead of playing out their primary roll as Americans.  In doing so, we have allowed ourselves to move one step closer to the abyss.
Even recent history has not been kind to those who ignore the evils of the hyphen.  In Rwanda it was the Tutsi’s and Hutu’s who had attempted to coexist as separate tribal cultures instead of as a unified nation.  Ultimately they ended up massacring each other for it.  In places like Chechnya and Bosnia it has been a divide defined by religious differences that has brought about war.  In South Africa it was a divide of race that cost so many their lives.  In this country we are being pitted against each other in a multitude of ways in an all out divide and conquer strategy.  As I stated earlier and history proves, it is civil war that represents the ultimate climax of a multicultural society.  Therefore, we must do our best to heed the words of men like Lincoln and King.  Otherwise, the greatest nation the world has ever known will fall victim to the same fate as so many others before.  It will have been destroyed by a simple hyphen.

Russia Says Obama is the Same as Lenin: Modern Progressive = Traditional Communist

It is no longer a secret of great urgency.  Communism is out in the open in America after 80 years of slow erosion and denials, communist infiltrators focusing on the American education system have overtaken logic in much the same way that Vladimir Lenin did in Russia during the Revolution of 1917.  Barack Obama in 2012 just newly re-elected by a society of fools is uttering exactly the same kind of rhetoric that Lenin did to usher in a communist take over of Russia a century ago.  Obama’s push for tax increases against the “rich” is exactly the same type of thing, and like all insecure academics Obama seeks a “consensus” of others to validate his communist theories.  This is why he brings in middle-class citizens to back him during White House speeches, to show that the “masses” are with him.  Lenin did the same kind of thing when advocating the creation of the Soviet Union.

I have shown at this site the detailed history of how all this happened, how labor unions are direct advocates of communism in America during the 1930’s especially and how they reside within Progressive politics.  I have shown what the McCarthy Hearings were all about and why they were important.  I have shown how KGB agents helped create the “hippie” movement in America during the 1960’s and are now within the “green” movement which is just the hippie movement renamed.  I have shown here how the Department of Education was created to bring about communism into every classroom and to protect the movement through bureaucracy in 1979, and the results are easy to see today for anyone with courage to look at the facts.  I have said these things because that is where the research leads when the investigation is conducted impartially.  America has been consumed by the enemy of The Cold War discreetly in a war that many Americans didn’t even know they were fighting, because they were playing checkers when the enemy was playing chess.  I have even went so far as to provide for you here dear reader the entire post-Thanksgiving Day show of my friend Doc Thompson as he filled in for the Glenn Beck Radio Program.  All three hours are below for you to listen to so that you can see that the evidence is not just being reported on these pages, but is moving into the mainstream where it belongs.  Now the Communist news group Pravda which was the official propaganda arm of the USSR during the Cold War has identified the Obama Presidency in the same way that I have.  Have a look at what they had to say about the communist movement in America, and specifically Obama.  Click the link below.

Since I began uttering these facts about communism embedding itself in public education many members of the media whom I have had very open relationships with previously have naturally sought to distance themselves from my opinion, because progressives have successfully suppressed any discussion of communism as an “out-dated” term left over from the “old days.”  This has been equivalent to the “cheating husband” who says to his wife, “I’m not sleeping with other women while on business trips,” all the while the husband has hundreds of text messages on his phone from women he is sleeping with, none of whom know of the others.  The husband thinks of himself as a slick character who can tell a lie with a straight face and he laughs at the chaos he creates in the lives of all his lovers.  So too does the communist proclaim that their “progressive” ideas are not part of the Cold War attack against America, which public education has conveniently erased from public scrutiny, but rather is focused on the well-being of all human beings.  The real goal is suppression and control of people everywhere with the sinister aims of communist rule intent on the destruction of individual endeavor and advocating collectivism.  SEE MY ARTICLE ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FOOTBALL AND SOCCER IN AMERICAN SPORTS.  The moves against America are subtle and very careful taking place outside of the attention spans of generations, over a long—and patient strategy that started with The Communist Manifesto.

Pravda understands all too well what is happening in America because it already happened in the former Soviet Union.  And they are not handcuffed by the American media into advocating progressive ideas, so they can report the facts as they see them, much the way I have.  The media people I know are uncomfortable with this truth because it requires them to admit that they have been a part of undermining America and that reality is tragically terrible to their minds.  But the facts are the facts—anyone who advocates progressive politics is advocating communist strategies against America.  Changing the names does not change the intention, which is the destruction of American capitalism, self-reliance, and a belief in small government independence.  The communists are alive and well today, and are functioning out in the open from the modern White House which is a disgrace to everything America stands for.

Anyone who takes an oath to defend the American Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic has an obligation to defeat the progressive communists who are seeking to undermine that same Constitution from insurgency within American politics.  Communists in America are domestic enemies and its time to deal with them as such.  They wish to destroy the American economy, the minds of the children, and put controls on every single human being on the planet.  And so far, they have been very successful, because the people of The United States have treated them with fairness, which has not been extended from the other side.  So no quarter should be given to these domestic enemies no matter where they reside, whether it be a local school board, a trustee, a congressional representative, a senator, a media personality, or even a member of The White House.  If they advocate progressive philosophy they are advocating the goals of communism and are domestic enemies to all who protect the Constitution.  History proves this and can best be seen in the novel We The Living.  It’s happened before and is happening again.  The evidence is clear.  All people need to do is accept the grim reality as fact, then act on that knowledge.  For more on this read my review of We The Living, written in 1936.  It looks like Joseph McCarthy was correct in his assertion of McCarthyism.  It was the battle over McCarthyism that allowed subversive elements to act in the open from our schools, from the media, and within government as the saboteurs succeeded in labeling McCarthy and his supporters as extreme radicals while many court cases protected communism under the same Constitution that the communists behind the mask of progressivism sought to destroy, eventually leading to a communist in the White House which progressives had been trying to achieve for over 100 years.  Now that they have The White House their first strategic target is the “rich” otherwise known as the bourgeoisie class.   That is the one and only goal of the tax hikes.  It has nothing to do with dealing with the deficit.  It’s all about a political checkmate in a chess game between communists and capitalists.

For more, I suggest reading We The Living.  It’s easy to get at your local book store.  And if you wish proof of what I said about the Department of Education CLICK HERE.
