Who Really Has The Hidden Agenda – The Left or The Right?

Canadian Prime Minister
Stephen Harper

For a very long time, the left in Canada has accused the current prime minister and the Conservative Party of having a secret, hidden agenda that they would implement  to the detriment of society and life as we know it once they were elected. He has been in office for six years now and aside from the usual careless mistakes, bouts of mean-spirited political campaigning and the odd bit of sheer stupidity that all parties seem to bring to office with them, it’s all been fairly stable in the Great White North and pretty much been business as (except for the odd riot here and there of course).

It’s hard to understand where this fear of a secret agenda came from until I read something posted on a friend’s Facebook page this morning. For some reason, it reminded me of something my mother used to tell me. “Those with something to hide tend to be the ones who are quickest to accuse others of the same thing” or to put it a little differently,

“The thing we fear in others is the thing we most fear in ourselves.”

I won’t accuse anyone of having a secret agenda, I’ll let the words below speak for themselves and you can decide for yourself what they mean to you.
The words are from “ The Naked Communist” and are part of the United States Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963.
Here are some key excerpts.

  • Get control of teachers’ associations. 
  • Put the party line in textbooks. 
  • Gain control of all student newspapers. 
  • Use student riots to foment public protests. (the student riots in Montreal have been picked up by the Occupy Movement in the United States and the Canadian labour movement is now calling on students in other provinces to follow the lead of students in Montreal)
  • Infiltrate the press 
  • Get control of editorial writing
  • Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems.
  • Get control of the schools 
  • Use [schools] as transmission belts for socialism & current propaganda (In the United States, some schools introduced pro Obama cult-like indoctrination for young black males while in Canada just a couple of weeks ago, a grade 3 teacher marched her class out onto the streets of Toronto with their cute signs to protest the Alberta Oil Sands and the Gateway Pipeline)
  • Soften the curriculum 
  • Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  • Infiltrate and gain control of big business
  • Discredit the family as an institution. 
  • Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  • 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. 
  • Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. (In Canada, Human Rights Tribunals now have judicial authority with none of the rights for the accused of the judicial process)
  • Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
  • Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. (the ongoing attack on the rights of the individual in favour of the rights of a collective has been increasing violently over the past decade in almost all major democracies)
Canadian Human Rights Commission
I was particularly struck by the accusation by the teacher who organized her grade 3 class when she was interviewed on camera by the Winnipeg Sun (link below). She proceeded to lecture the reporter about the biased, unbalanced Conservative agenda represented by The Sun, completely oblivious to the hypocrisy of her own actions or attitudes.
The complete record is linked below and when compared to what is happening in our schools, our streets and our institution, it could be quite alarming although I’m certain that any similarity to what was written and what is happening today is merely coincidence. The left would never do something as dishonest as that which they accuse the right of doing……or would they? You decide but as for me…..
So much for the secret agenda of the conservative right! I think I’m a little more concerned with the actions and sanctimonious rhetoric of the left these days.

    Excellent post, Bear. It should be required reading for all voters on this continent I wonder how many people, like the teacher, would fail to recognize this disturbing trend within their own parties, and how many people (esp the youth) could understand the threat to freedom that this Communist agenda has created. People don’t want to hear things that make them rethink their philosophies and have to admit they have made a mistake.
    We humans are a prideful species.

      There are two key things that really define the left for me. The first is that there is no cause, issue or problem for which they don’t believe that more government regulation, interference in the lives of others or more tax money isn’t the solution. The second is that they tend to be people who form their opinions based on feelings and emotions and then go looking for facts that support that opinion. They tend to tune out, shout down or simply ignore any fact that may contradict the opinion they formed.

      Thank you for your comment and your ongoing support, I truly appreciate it.

    Man that’s not a secret agenda in Canada, it’s fact since Trudeau, Canada is a Socialist/communist nation.
    We lost our property rights in 1982 along with our system of government in which the Provinces were supreme not Parliament and certainly not unelected judges.
    Don’t they teach history anymore?, no one seems capable of recognizing what we are just because we have elections LOL.
    Democracy is just a stop on the way to socialism and then communism, only a republic/confederation with private property and provincial/state rights is a true form of citizen government by rep.

      That is basically the point behind this article. The Left has been chipping away at our rights for years in an attempt to move us to a socialist state.
