Rachel Maddow has been busy poking fun at Glenn Beck and her competitors at Fox News over their take that the unrest in Egypt is an "insurrection" by Islamic extremists that are acting in accordance with the extreme Left:
Glenn Beck responded to criticisms of his "conspiracy theory" on his radio program today.
On radio Thursday, Glenn Beck responded to those accusing him of wild “conspiracy theories” connecting the extreme left and extreme Islam in the wake of the Egyptian unrest — and he used three simple, succinct sentences to do so:
“I want the left to know, I plant my flag in this soil. If I’m wrong, so be it,” he said before laying out his case. “And you can discredit me all you want for the end of time, but I’m telling you I’m not wrong on this one. And there are three points that I want to make sure are very clear.”
Sentence one: “Groups from the hardcore socialist left, and extreme Islam will work together because of the common enemy of Israel.”
Sentence two: “Groups from the hardcore socialist left and extreme Islam will work together because of the common enemy of capitalism.”
Sentence three: “Groups from the hardcore socialist left, and extreme Islam will work together to overturn relative stability, because in the status quo, they are both ostracized from power and the mainstream in most of the world.”
Maddow also recently was mocking Glenn Beck for warning that the world was facing aggression by the authoritarian Eastern powers that would ultimately result in three major spheres of control: a Russian dominated Eurasia, a China dominated Pacific Rim and a Muslim caliphate throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Southern Europe:
Recently I was booted from the TimeBomb2000 forum for daring to go against their right-wing extremism surrounding the Tuscon shooting tragedy. However, as I've long been arguing, the bipolar extreme between the "Left" and "Right" in America is a form of collective insanity and neither side has a monopoly on the truth.
Glenn Beck might be wrong in my view when it comes to not recognizing the need to use representative government to provide for the common welfare including universal healthcare, but I think he is dead right on his geopolitics here:
However, even Beck couldn't imagine the degree to which Islamic extremists have become allied with the 'Old Enemy' of the Communist East in pursuing Israel and America's destruction. (See, for instance, my blog, "Russia Was Behind 9/11".) I don't think he understands that Russia did away with "Communism" as a false ideological front in order to establish a new ideological lie: Orthodox Christianity.
In other words, the apocalyptic religious extremists in the Islamic world are teamed up with apocalyptic religious extremists in Moscow, i.e., the rabidly anti-Semitic, anti-Western Russian Right forewarned about by Alexander Yanov in his book, The Russian Challenge (1987):
The Russian Idea proceeded....from the belief that the contemporary world was suffering from a global spiritual crisis 'carrying humankind headlong toward catastrophe' (in the words of a present day prophet). It pointed to the inability of the secularized, materialistic and cosmopolitan West to come to grips with this crisis, whose historical source lay in the secular Enlightenment: in the West's rejection of religion as the spiritual basis of politics and in its inability to realize that not the individual but the nation is the foundation of the world order conceived by God; that 'humankind is quantified by nations'.
The Russian Idea pointed to the providential role of Orthodoxy, as uniquely capable of pulling back the world from the brink of the abyss, and to Russia as the instrument of this great mission. While the Russian Idea rejected the 'government's interference in the moral life of the people' (the police state), it also denounced the 'people's interference in state power' (democracy). To both of these it opposed the 'principle of AUTHORITARIAN power'. The state, it taught, must be unlimited because 'only under unlimited monarchial power can the people separate the government from themselves and free themselves to concentrate on moral-social life, on the drive for spiritual freedom'.
The Russian idea did not acknowledge the central postulate of Western political thought concerning the separation of powers (as the institutional embodiment of the neutralization of vice by vice). Instead, it advocated the principle of separation of functions between temporal and spiritual powers: the state guards the country against external foes and the Orthodox church settles the nation's internal conflicts....It cherished the ideal of the nation cum family, requiring neither parliaments, political parties, nor separation of powers. Like the family, the nation would have no need of legal guarnatees or institutional limitations on state's power and its focus should not be the rights, but rather the obligations of its members. The nation's conflicts, according to the Russian Idea, must be reconciled by spiritual, rather than constitutional, authority.
The ideal of the nation as family presupposed the need for salvation from the sinful influences of the 'street' (the West) and, consequently, from a spiritual rebirth and a moral revolution. In the course of this Russia would return 'home' to its pure rural roots, to the tsarist Rus'...
(Excerpt from Yanov's The Russian Challenge, pp.24-25)
"Today the Soviet system can no longer seriously strive toward the spectre of Communism - but at the same time it cannot yet abandon the grandeur of its tasks, for otherwise it would have to answer for fruitless sacrifices which are truly innumerable. But in what then can the Soviet system find its justification? Only in the consciousness that it was unconsciously in the past, as it is now quite consciously, God's instrument for constructing a new Christian world. It has no other justification, and this is . . . a genuine and great justification. By adopting it, our state will discover in itself a truly inexhaustable source of Truth, spiritual energy and strength, which has never before existed in history . . . The old pagan world has now finally outlived its era . . . In order not to perish with it we must build a new civilization - but is Western society, whose foundations have been destroyed, really capable of this? Only the Soviet sytem, having adopted Russian Orthodoxy . . . is capable of beginning THE GREAT TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD." (Passage written by Russian nationalist G.M. Shimanov quoted in Yanov's The Russian Challenge, p.236)
Ultimately this hidden alliance is working toward global conquest just as Glenn Beck is warning, except in their map America isn't an Islamic state, it simply ceases to exist after a full-scale Russian nuclear attack.
The notion that the political uprising in Egypt is associated with a regional insurrection being effected by the Muslim Brotherhood is spot on IMHO:
“The policies of the United State have been defeated in North Africa and the Middle East,” said Rahim Safavi, the former head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. “The popular revolution in Egypt is inspired by the Islamic revolution [of Iran] and doubtlessly the destiny of the dictator of Egypt will be like the dictator of Iran.”
Just consider how the current crisis in Egypt started only days after Lebanon fell under the control of Hezbollah.
What's important to understand is that this extreme Islamic organization is integrally tied to the extreme Left and Russian intelligence:
"By the summer of 1968, the Soviet Union had progressed far toward converting Egypt into its principal base of subversion against the Arab world." (Barron, p. 62) Thirty-three years later, Egypt was the principal base of Islamic terrorists. Soviet Union, however, failed in Egypt. In May 1971, Anwar Sadat wiped out most of KGB agents. In July 1972, Soviet advisors were expelled from Egypt. Eight years later, Sadat paid for this with his life, being assassinated by members of an Islamist group. Sadat's peace policy toward Israel made it easy for the remnants of the KGB network to ally with the right-wing Muslim Brotherhood. This is the background of Ayman az-Zawahiri, the second man of al-Qayda.
Thus, the seeming popular uprising in Egypt is really about an insurrection planned by the two most anti-Semitic, anti-Western forces in the world: Islamic and Communist radicals, operating together to take down their common enemies. What is transpiring in Cairo's "Liberation Square" is really about a plan for liberation from the West by the powers-that-be in the East ultimately via armed conflict. One can be fairly certain that this "revolution" is hardly spontaneous so much as the outcome of a planned, instigated script the conclusion of which will be the destruction of Israel and America and the military domination of the world by the authoritarian powers of the East:
Reports out of Egypt directly connecting ElBaradei's political ambitions with Tehran surfaced last September via a political rival, Abdul Mabboud. A story translated from Egyptian Newspaper Al Youm Al Sabeh last September said: "in a communication to the Attorney General of Egypt, Dr. Yasser Najib Abdel Mabboud, has accused Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei...of receiving funds exceeding $7 million (US) from Iran’s leadership as support for ‘political reform in Egypt’." The story claimed that "the check in the amount of $ 7 million is said to be meant to cover the financial costs of the election campaign and the activities of the Front for Change."
The shoe sure seems to fit. ElBaradei told CNN's Fareed Zakaria Sunday that: "The Muslim Brotherhood ...has nothing to do with extremism...[T]hey have a lot of credibility...And I have been reaching out to them."
What is unfolding, in the minds of those fomenting this seeming revolution, is part of a violent plan to militarily defeat and subjugate Western Civilization, purportedly in the name of "god", as is predicted according to my Global Bipolar Hypothesis.
In other words, man as a species is completely insane, thinks himself to be God and is about to effectively commit near-suicide.
Everything is backwards by definition at such an extreme historical turning point.
