Oops! Did she really say she’s a social engineer?

By Robert Ringer - Monday, July 22, 2013

I’d like to believe that every thinking person to the right of Hillary Clinton realizes that progressives are in a permanent social-engineering mode, but even the most galling progressives are not dumb enough to actually talk about it openly.  It’s one of those stealth things — you know, like slipping an ineligible presidential candidate into the White House by working with the media to make his past vanish into thin air.

So it created quite a stir when an obscure civil rights attorney by the name of Jasmine Rand said to Greta Van Susteren, “I have a greater duty beyond being an attorney, and that’s to be a social engineer.”  With that statement, she made history by becoming the first far-left individual to let the social-engineering cat out of the bag.  That’s right, she actually said the words:  social engineering!  Many on the left must have been thinking, “Who in the hell allowed this twit to go on a national television show?  She’s a bigger disaster than Susan Rice!”

From Engels to Lenin, from Mao to Obama, Marxists have believed that social engineering is an essential element in bringing about a more just society.  Why?  Because justice is in the eyes of the beholder, so it becomes necessary to “socially engineer” those who resist their ideas about justice.  And if they cannot be persuaded to bring their views into line with those of whichever thugs happen to be in power at any given time, it becomes necessary to use brute force against them to help them see the light.

Social engineering is nothing more than psychological manipulation.  At its extreme is the Manchurian Candidate syndrome, whereby a person can be brainwashed into committing murder even though it is against his moral code.  But no matter what the extent of the social engineering, it always involves convincing people — psychologically or through the use of force — to override their natural instincts and obey a “higher” authority.

B.F. Skinner, collectivist psychologist and social theorist, spent his life searching for a scientific way to repress the human instinct to better one’s existence.  Skinner, by focusing on the modification of human behavior, was inadvertently acknowledging that self-interest is a natural and normal human characteristic.  Only force can prevent human beings from acting in their own best interests.

This is what Mao’s rehabilitation camps were all about, and it’s what the triumph of progressivism in America is all about.  We don’t have literal rehabilitation camps (yet) for those who refuse to conform, but social engineering is practiced on a nationwide playing field, and woe unto him who dares to defy it.  Shame, guilt (particularly white guilt), and the desire to conform to the politically correct thoughts of the day are the easiest ways to get along in the land of the racial scam and the home of the cowardly race hustlers in the 21st century.

We have been socially engineered into admiring LeBron James more than Thomas Sowell or Clarence Thomas; tattooed-covered bodies more than those left the way God meant them to be; blue jeans worn below the butt more than a suit and tie.  This kind of social engineering has happened gradually, over such a long period of time, that today’s younger generation thinks of it as normal.

I’ve been reluctant to say much about the Trayvon Martin case, for a number of reasons, the most important of which is that, being a father, I believe that the media circus has already caused Trayvon Martin’s parents far too much unnecessary pain.  They may believe that their son was unjustifiably killed — which, if I were in their shoes, I would probably believe as well — but the merchants of racial division, led by the Divider-in-Chief himself, have turned a local death in a small town in Florida into a trumped-up national race story.  And race is the one thing that has been overwhelmingly shown not to be involved in this case.

It also offends me that those hateful souls who profit most from these artificially created stories, again led by BHO, seem to care nothing about the thousands of blacks who are killed each year by other blacks.  Every life that is snuffed out is just as important as was Trayvon Martin’s, but most murders simply don’t have the political appeal to interest the professional race baiters.

That said, the reason I decided to bring up the Trayvon Martin case is because it’s all about social engineering.  The idea is that if you don’t get the result you want in court, you simply ignore the law against double jeopardy and find another law (that violates Natural Law), which you then use to convict the person who was acquitted.  This is social engineering in all its glory, right out in the open for everyone to see.

And if a conviction is obtained on the grounds of “racial profiling” (don’t even get me started on that aspect of the social-engineering scam), that creates enough fear in the hearts of those who still cling to the Constitution and Natural Law to make them think to themselves, “Hmm … maybe rehabilitation is better than the alternative.”  And thus social engineering does its rehabilitation wonders once again through simple “persuasion.”

Understand that social engineering, by its very nature, calls for a double standard.  Under social engineering, blacks with night sticks at voting stations are given a pass.  Union thugs beating up a black Tea Party member is no problem.  Killing more than a million unborn (and some born) babies a year is okay.  Make no mistake about it, social engineering is not about equal justice.  It’s about unequal justice.  It’s about the power thugs having it all their way.

The social engineers may or may not have their way in the Trayvon Martin case.  But they definitely intend to have their way when it comes to convincing you that your own needs and desires should be subordinated to those whom the government believes to be more needy or more worthy than you — and shaming you into repressing your natural instincts to better your existence and look to politicians and government bureaucrats to make decisions for you.

But so long as you have a brain, that’s something you will always have the power to prevent.  Social engineering can never triumph over courage.

    I enjoyed reading RJR's thoughts, today, partly because he articulates in white English ( i.e. complete sentences with properly conjugated verbs) as opposed to black English. I also enjoyed reading RJR's logical cognition, which sounds like a powerful cross between those creepy-ass crackers, Dr. Spock from Vulcan and Sherlock Holmes.

    RJR must be a racist because of his exclusive use of both white English and white logic….. tisk, tisk, tisk…… F***ing old-school cracker better start using some new school thinking.

    All joking aside: There are three primary reasons why Obama wants that self-proclaimed "gangsta" , Trayvon Martin, kept in the news' headlines:

    1) So the bobble-headed media-whores can take the heat off of Obama by focusing on an insignificant self-defense case instead of all of the Obama treason that is going on, e. g., IRS, NSA, CIA, Obama Care, et al..

    2) So a bone can be thrown to all of the professional race-baiters/demagogues.

    3) To inject specious gun-control notions back into the national spotlight.

    By the way, if you need to get up to speed on the subject of "social engineering", has just released the documentary film, "State of Mind".

    Alex Jones is spearheading the fight against the duplicitous, social engineers, so turn off Fox and turn on infowars.

      With respect, Reality Seeker, I think you missed a fourth point. Point 4 is to create increasing tension between the races, leading to outright hostility and ultimately violence, which will then give FedGov all the excuse it needs to declare martial law and disarm us. And then it's game over. We will officially be the United Socialist States of America. People like "Proud Liberal" below will we jumping for joy . . . until they come for him and his family.

      • Reality Seeker says:

        Your point is excellent, and I actually thought about including it, Dan, but I decided that Obama doesn't really want to be remembered as the President who fostered a race war during his watch, unless, of course, he has no other choice.

        I agree that both Obama and Obama's handlers want the races to remain divided so an all-out race-war remains an option. Moreover, I know that they know that if the races were allowed to unite against the government cartel instead of fighting each other, it would spell real trouble for the kleptocratic elite; therefore, don't expect the government cartel to allow racial harmony anytime soon.

        The problem for me is that there are many clued-in people of whom I respect which agree with you, Dan, so I'm not completely sure that I'm right in not totally agree with you.

      Alex Jones is ontop of alot of this one world govt plan that is coming down the pipe. However, Alex is both the best man for the job and the worst man for the job.

      Most of the time Alex acts like a raving maniac. Not exactly exemplary behavior if you trying to make a point.

      If Jesus were to act like Alex who how far would the Good Lord get? Likely not very far at all.

      • Reality Seeker says:

        Reply to John:

        "If Jesus were to act like Alex"…….

        Actually, Jesus did a lot of ranting and raving. Have you not ever read about some of His rants against the "sons of vipers". I don't know about you, pal, but to me being called a son of a viper sounds a lot like being called a son of a bitch. Moreover Jesus was, at times, a violent man. Remember how he whipped the shit out of the money changers and overturned there tables?

        Perhaps you need to do some remedial study on the life and times of Jesus. The sixty-sixth book of the Bible depicts Jesus as an invincible, warrior; so Jesus, if, indeed, he is alive right now and looking down upon sinful mankind, then I would suspect he is getting pretty pissed off at how mankind is defiling the His earth. And, I, for one, wouldn't want to be standing in the path of His white horse when it comes thundering out of the sky with Jesus riding it and swinging that deadly great sword of his along with a myriad of ass-kicking angels right behind Him.

        As far as Alex goes, he is no Jesus, that's for sure, but I like how he set the example of how to crash the Piers Morgan show and disrespect those f***ing presstitutes.

        Recently, Larry Elder did an even better job of tongue lashing Morgan. I don't know about you, pal, but I'm almost through playing nice. When the next crash comes ( and it will come) then the gloves are coming off and the bullhorn is coming out. And what I'll have to say won't be rated G, because it'll be time then for fighting words

        • Andrew John says:

          The rants of Jesus are not the same as the loony toon rants of Alex. I saw Alex on Piers Morgan show and he was as his best as a right wing nut case wack job. Piers Morgan to be sure is no journalist anymore than Sean Hannity is a conservative (he is not).

          I had a friend (passed away some years ago) in the Air Force Reserves who was trying to get people to listen to his for more reasoned and controlled rants about the NWO. Everybody called him Charles the nut job. I knew what he was talking about and I was sorry that most people didn't care to listen. How to get Joe Sixpack to listen was not in their lexicon (vocabulary to them)

          They only way to get peoples attention is by talking about the latest football/baseball/basketball (pick your favorite sport) scores.

          And I agree with you about time for taking the gloves off when the crash comes. Meanwhile, you won't get their attention until the crash occurs. Because even when gas is at $9 a gallon won't do it. Hell $20 won't do it either for that matter.

    Same old right-wing baloney , equating Hillary Clinton nd other democrats with the communists .Marx ,Engels , etc . This is nothing but innuendo and guilt by (false ) association . The democratic party is not communist in the least bit .
    Right-wingers like Ringer and his ilk are lways equating social liberalism , perfectly sensible views such as being pro-gay rights, pro-choice, pro separation of state , not wanting to destroy the safety net in America etc with communism . In fact the Soviet Union was guilty of brutal oppresion of gays ..

    • proudtobefree says:

      Dear proudliberal,

      I think you miss the point about Liberals being equated to Marxists and Communists. In 1917 Lenin, Stalin and other Bolsheviks gave speeches to the masses about equality, rights of the working man, freedom from the state, etc. Thy preached against all of the wrongs writ on the population of Russia by the Tsar. And there were lots of wrongs to right. They were even supported by other socialists in Britain, France, Germany and the US.

      Unfortunately, when they came to power they immediately began to take away the rights of the citizens of Russia. The right to bear arms, the right of free speech, the right to privacy, the right to pubic assembly – all in the name of a "safety net' for the poor and down trodden. They demonized and denigrated the moderates in the opposition parties and eventually just rounded them up and shot them. They encouraged fellow citizens to spy on each other and had zero tolerance for dissent against the government. This didn't happen overnight, but over a long period of time until what emerged is what we remember and refer to as Communism". Well, we know how that turned out don't we?

      The problem is that although things are not near as bad as they were in 1917, we now see the same behavior from the Democrats in power. You may be pro-gay, pro-separation of state, pro-whatever is in your heart, but believe me, you are like a lamb being led to the slaughter house because you are perfectly willing to give up your fundamental rights for the so called "safety net". Personally. I'd rather be living in a tent then to give up 1 iota of my rights to a government run by the richest people in America.

    • IHeartDagney says:

      Hmmmm, yes, liberal policies not communist and are the MOST compassionate policies there are, right? They certainly have nothing to do with the downfall of the greatest city in the world, Detroit, correct? The birth of health care as a "perk" to employment happened in Detroit because of wage and price controls. That, along with nothing but liberal and union rule brought the greatest city, Motor City, Motown, you name it, down. Tell me how many Republicans were elected in Detroit in the last 50 years? ONE, a city councilman in the 1970's, I believe. The last Republican mayor was in 1964. You want to see what America will look like if people keep voting for Democrats, look no further than Detroit. You have so MUCH to be PROUD of, don't you? LOL!

      What is more compassionate is FREEDOM and personal responsibilty. Those values made this country the greatest the world has ever seen. Democrats are all about restricting both. As that restriction happens, the cancer of Detroit will spread.

      Democrats = the party of DEATH

    • Andrew John says:

      Spooking like a true democrat operative!!!!

      If Saul Alinsky, Karl and Stalin were alive today, they would be sooo proud of how left the democrat party has gone.

      As for the republican party establishment/elites of today are concerned, they are one election cycle from looking like their democrat masters.

    • Guest says:

      You're just a "useful idiot," ain't ya? How 'bout a nice can of "Shut the 'H___' Up?"

  3. Daniel Joseph says:

    In president Obama’s impromptu speech on Friday (that appeared to be memorized) he talked openly about the personal difficulties and the profiling he has suffered from as an African-American. It was very moving. But could not have been Trayvon Martin because Obama would have been home doing homework. Regardless of race, you don’t get into Harvard Law if you didn’t establish homework related study habits as a teenager. He also left out the part about how he probably would not be President if he did not appear to be black. He consistently received 80 to 90% of the African American vote. In some African American counties, more than 100% of the registered voters voted for Obama.

    • Andrew John says:

      Went to college in Harvard??? No one who went to Harvard ever saw Obama attend there. And of course his college records are kept closed. Just like John Kerry's military records are closed.

      What does that say about the "most transparent" administration in American history.

  4. guest says:

    Ho, ho, ho! "You don't get into Harvard law unless you study…..". Please tell us what you know about Obama. Please tell us who his father was. Who his mother was. Tell us when he got married, who attended, who was best man. Tell us, for sure, that he is who he says he is. Can't do it, can you? See, you've created a diaphanous straw man here, assuming Obama is a known commodity. In fact, we know zilch about this cool cat. Yet, you fail to interject this reality into your discussion that materializes Obama in the absence of concrete proof. Obama was created, amply, to appeal to enough voters to get elected. He had powerful backers, financial and otherwise. The fact remains, who the hell is this guy?

    • Andrew John says:

      Hell knows damm well who this person is.

      One thing I know for certain, he is no true American in the traditional sense of the word of what America has stood for.

  5. proudiberal says:

    Saul Alinsky was not even a communist . In fact, as a community organizer in Chicago, he did an enormous amount of good for poor people there . You conservatives (ctually retrogressives) don't even know what Marxism,socialism and communism are . That's why you naively believe Obama and the democrats are communists .You're mistaking liberalism for communism . In fact, REAL communists are not liberals at all. They're totalitarian authoritarian fascists . Communism has NOTHING to do with liberalism .

  6. Karl says:

    In Protester Voices—The 1974 Textbook Tea Party (P. 185) Alice Moore said regarding what she saw happening in 1974:

    The goal of the Progressives was to turn schools into indoctrination centers for the purpose of creating a godless and socialist society. They intended to do so by making teachers “change agents.” That change was coming was made clear by one of our
    Kanawha County principals who proudly proclaimed, “We are no longer transmitters of information in education. We are transformers for social change.”

  7. D Goodman says:

    Let's drop all of the racebaiting in America once and for all! But I don't see that happening,as long as there are people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, BHO, etc. who owe their power and in some cases their incomes on being demagogues and rabble rousers who keep the fires of racial bitterness, division, and even hatred and mistrust burning hot – like the place where they are headed to spend eternity!
