Russian Subversion & Psychological Warfare Tactics Revealed by KGB Defector Yuri Bezmenov – FULL

Mini-lesson on Wokism

Leftists use a vocabulary in which everyday words have precise meanings.  Frequently, users may not even know it and are just repeating what others say.  It can be difficult to know just how deeply these people ACTUALLY understand what they are saying.  Read the first two in this thread by Khanh Pham (OR HD 46, SE Portland) . Focus on the word JUSTICE.

Justice in everyday use usually means correcting a wrong under the law. A person’s rights have been violated and justice restores that person and/or prosecutes the wrongdoer. A classical liberal and conservative view also hold social justice as a way to ensure EQUALITY in which people are treated EQUALLY under the law.

CRITICAL SOCIAL JUSTICE however seeks to create EQUITY.  Whereas EQUALITY treats people the same, regardless of immutable characteristics (race, sex, etc.), EQUITY dictates that immutable characteristics MUST take precedence.

Simple scenario:

A white person robs a black person of $1000

EQUALITY dictates that the white person pays restitution to the black person and serves a predetermined time in prison.  Both people go back to the way they were before the robbery took place.  

EQUITY dictates that the white person is enacting PRIVLEGE and POWER.  Restitution and prison are not enough. Because black people have been OPPRESSED for 400 years under slavery and Jim Crow, the white person must liquidate personal assets to make up for this wrong.  This is how reparations are viewed. Furthermore, in an EQUITY view, everyone becomes completely equal in EVERY way.  The same amount of everything makes the world perfect in their eyes. If this sounds like communism, it is.  Instead of economic equity, everyone has racial, sexual, size, and ability equity or justice.

Back to how the problem may be solved using her thread.

SOCIAL is the adjective, so Khanh Pham swaps out social for TRANSPORTATION.

What would TRANSPORTATION JUSTICE  look like?

EQUAL TRANSPORTATION  would look at improving existing transportation options (busses, bike lanes, light rail, roads) so that people can get around easier.  We also know that businesses need roads, so they have the incentive to build things that work. Local solutions for local problems. Increase opportunity.

EQUITY TRANSPORTATION would dismantle the existing systems in place to make people equitable.  Since this has never been tried on a wide scale, it would probably look like the government taking away your car and giving everyone a bicycle, or telling you to walk everywhere.  Equity achieved.  Everyone has the SAME OUTCOME.

The takeaway from this is that whereas Libertarians seek to create more EQUAL opportunities through free trade, hard work, and agorism, leftists seek to create equal OUTCOMES through adjusting society on a global level. We see reality as an obstacle to overcome.  They think they remove the obstacle through magic.  This has been tried before, and it doesn’t and indeed cannot work.

Take a look at the definition of SOCIAL JUSTICE by James Lindsay. Familiarize yourself with how they use language.  Once you see it, you cannot unsee it.

James explains the cult dynamics quite well in this thread.

LPO Resolution Concerning the Rage Against the War Machine Antiwar Rally


Sonja Feintech – LPO Public Policy Board Secretary

Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board


Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board
Resolution 23-02 Concerning the Rage Against the War Machine Anti-War Rally

Oregon: The Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board announced Resolution 23-02 Concerning the Rage Against the War Machine Anti-War Rally, a resolution voted on by the elected Public Policy Board. 

This resolution declares: 

Further escalation in Ukraine risks the possibility of an all-out war between NATO, Russia, and Russia’s allies. Furthermore, The Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board gives Will Hobson permission to act as representative of the Libertarian Party of Oregon in attending the Rage Against the War Machine Rally

The Libertarian Party of Oregon is strongly opposed to this war,” says Sonja Feintech, Public Policy Board Secretary at the Libertarian Party of Oregon. “Our government is engaging in an undeclared war, illegally bypassing our congress and burdening citizens with unrepresented taxation.

This resolution includes;

  • Not One More Penny for War in Ukraine
  • Negotiate Peace
  • Stop the War Inflation
  • Disband NATO
  • Global Nuclear De-Escalation
  • Slash the Pentagon Budget
  • Abolish the CIA and Military-Industrial Deep State
  • Abolish War and Empire
  • Restore Civil Liberties
  • Free Julian Assange
  • Pardon Edward Snowden

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED The Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board supports the Rage Against the War Machine Protest being jointly held by the National Libertarian Party and The People’s Party being held on Feb 19 2023, and joins them in their demands.

This Resolution will be available starting 2/20/23, for public dissemination. For more

About the Libertarian Public Policy Board: The Public Policy Board is a newly created body of the Libertarian Party of Oregon and acts as the public outreach and policy creator branch of the Oregon Libertarian Party.

LP Oregon Resolution Concerning Childhood Sex Changes


Sonja Feintech – LPO Public Policy Board Secretary

Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board


Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board
Resolution 23-01 Concerning Childhood Sex Changes and Transitional Hormone Therapy

The Libertarian Party Platform Planks 1.1, 1.5 and 2.13 encompass Parental Rights, Self-Ownership and Healthcare, adopted in 2016 as reaffirmed in Convention, May 2022.

Oregon: The Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board announced Resolution 23-01 Concerning Childhood Sex Changes and Transitional Hormone Therapy, a resolution voted on by the elected Public Policy Board. 

This resolution declares that whereas children are unable to consent, surgery and hormone therapy causes irreversible harm that is tantamount to child abuse.

It is already illegal for parents and caretakers to abuse their own children,” says Sonja Feintech, Public Policy Board Secretary at the Libertarian Party of Oregon. “We have very strong laws already in place to criminalize the abuse of children and the level of harm that irreversible gender surgery and hormone therapy qualifies as abuse, one hundred percent.

This resolution includes:

Whereas, children are not capable of consent; this is why we call them children (and not adults). 

Whereas, Libertarians fully support the right of adults to transition or undergo any medical treatment they desire to. We support all members of the LGBT+ community to live their lives as they see fit. All individuals have the same rights. 

Whereas, child abuse consists of any act of commission or omission that endangers or impairs a child’s physical or emotional health and development. Child abuse includes any damage done to a child which cannot be reasonably explained and which is often represented by an injury or series of injuries appearing to be non-accidental in nature.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED, the Libertarian Party of Oregon considers both transitional hormone therapy and surgical gender re-assignment surgery on children to be child abuse. 

This Resolution will be available starting 2/20/23, for public dissemination. For more

LPO Resolution Concerning Corona Vaccine and Injection Mandates


Sonja Feintech – LPO Public Policy Board Secretary

Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board


Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board
Resolution 22-06 Concerning Corona Vaccine and Injection Mandates

Libertarian Platform Plank 1.1 on Self Ownership states

“Individuals own their bodies and have rights over them that other individuals, groups, and governments may not violate. Individuals have the freedom and responsibility to decide what they knowingly and voluntarily consume, and what risks they accept to their own health, finances, safety, or life;” 

Oregon: The Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board announced Resolution 22-06 Concerning Corona Vaccine and Injection Mandates, a resolution voted on by the elected Public Policy Board. 

This resolution declares:

  • The currently available scientific evidence does not support a public health benefit of mandated corona injections for children and adults and raises serious potential such policies will cause net harm to the individual and public health of Oregonians,
  • The Constitution of Oregon delegates lawmaking authority to elected representatives of the People of Oregon, not unelected technocrats subject to regulatory capture at the Oregon Health Authority rubber-stamping the recommendations of industry insiders at OIPAT,
  • The Oregon Immunization Policy Advisory Team lacks true diversity, including input from vaccine critics, health freedom/libertarian organizations, organizations for the support of vaccine-injured Oregonians, and alternative medicine/naturopathic practitioners,
  • Principles of good government include the adoption of sunset clauses with new administrative rules, including new vaccine mandates in order to force their periodic review post-adoption, and
  • The adoption of a public school mandate policy runs counter to the Oregon Health Authority’s stated equity goals, as only parents capable of affording private school tuition can escape the Oregon Health Authority’s harmful policy;

The government has a very poor track record of making decisions for the public good when given unrestrained power, ” says Sonja Feintech, Public Policy Board Secretary at the Libertarian Party of Oregon. “The creation and reign of OHA in particular is a great example of unelected officials making health requirements and mandates that have long term repercussions with zero recourse for Oregon citizens.

This resolution includes:

Oregon has a long history with harmful health mandates often targeting vulnerable communities, including forced physical and chemical castration of homosexuals, mandated prefrontal lobotomies, mandated sterilization of the “feeble minded,” mandated electroshock therapy, forced psychiatric medicating of schoolchildren with Adderall and Ritalin, forced administration of AZT to babies born from HIV positive mothers, and involuntary fluoridation of water supplies.

Corona injection manufacturers, including Pfizer, have made generous political contributions to Oregon politicians, creating a conflict of interest in the administration of public policy contrary to the benefit of the People of Oregon.

As of November 11, 2022, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System lists 32,200 corona injection associated deaths and 183,165 corona injection associated hospitalizations

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED the Libertarian Party of Oregon opposes all vaccine and injection mandates – both public and private – including proposals to add corona injections to OAR 333-050-0050; 

This Resolution will be available starting 2/20/23, for public dissemination. For more

Resolution 22-05 Concerning Oregon Measure 114

Oregon: The Libertarian Party of Oregon Public Policy Board announced Resolution 22-05 Concerning Oregon Measure 114, a resolution voted on by the elected Public Policy Board. 

This resolution declares:

Measure 114 is incompatible with the Constitution of Oregon, Article 1, Section 27 and the Constitution of the United States, Amendment 2; and

Measure 114 is poor public policy and runs contrary to Libertarian Principles; and

Measure 114 is poorly written, unfunded, and was unfairly presented to the voters.

The Oregon constitution in particular is very clear on gun ownership and our constitutional rights as Americans but also as Oregonians, ” says Sonja Feintech, Public Policy Board Secretary at the Libertarian Party of Oregon. “The Libertarian Party of Oregon supports legal actions against what is clearly a gun grab, antithetical to the cause of liberty.

This resolution includes:

The Libertarian Party of Oregon supports the legal action of the Oregon Firearm Federation and the Sherman County Sheriff against Measure 114 and the Libertarian Party of Oregon is authorized to submit an amicus brief in support of the lawsuit.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED  the chair of the Public Policy Board may designate individuals to speak for the Libertarian Party of Oregon to the contents of this resolution in the administrative rulemaking process for Measure 114 and before legislative committees considering revision, modification, or repeal of all or parts of Measure 114.

This Resolution will be available starting 2/20/23, for public dissemination. For more
