    Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963-

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    The communist goals were entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69)...Any elected member of Congress can pretty much say anything s/he wants and it'll be recorded in the C.R. E.g. "Congratulations to the Mayberry Fire Dept's Little Team for making the West VA state championships."

    oh yeah: about the author

    Willard Cleon Skousen (January 20, 1913 – January 9, 2006) was an American author, conservative American constitutionalist andfaith-based political theorist.[1] He was also a prolific popularizer among Latter-day Saints (Mormons) (LDS) of their theology. A notable anti-communist and supporter of the John Birch Society,[2] Skousen's works involved a wide range of subjects including theSix-Day War, Mormon eschatology, New World Order conspiracies, and parenting.[3] His most popular works are The 5,000 Year Leapand The Naked Communist. A book by Skousen on end times prophecy, The Cleansing of America, was published by Valor Publishing Group in 2010, four years after his death.[4]

    Everything to do with conservatism/religious dogma? More like a reasonable presentation of the far left's vision for the US and their methods.

    like i said, you need to read and take every one of those supposed 'communist' ideals separately.
    homosexuality is not only disdained by conservatives and religious folks, you can certainly see the lack of appeal in russia correct?

    also: 'reasonable presentation of far left's vision' from the eyes of a 'far right religious john bircher type'

    that you conservatives would align yourself with a guy like that is somewhat unnerving.

    What's really interesting isn't whether the guy was a member of the John Birch Society, if he was a fruitcake, or if he was even right in claiming those things have anything to do with communism. What's interesting to me is how much of that is actually happening, and he said this in what - 1963? Sounds like he had a pretty good idea of what was going to happen, whether you agree/like or not. He either is just incredibly lucky to have guessed these types of things were going to happen, or was just really had a vision, no matter how paranoid, of our future.

    What does what the guy himself was a part of have to do with anything at all? Look at his words out of who said it and ask yourself how much of that is actually going on right now. I don't think Shelby is trying to get us to memorialize the man himself or anything.

    No. The ramblings of kooks should probably best be ignored, even if they made it into the public record.
