The Green Menace
By <>Christopher Archangelli
FrontPageMagazine.com | April 9, 2003

         Back in the dark Cold War days of 1984 a seed was brought to 
American soil. Fallen from the vine of the Green Party in Germany, planted 
in the dark socialist earth of the American Left, and watered with rampant 
anti-Americanism, the Green Committees of Correspondence took root in 1990 
and adopted their first national Platform. By 1996 the Green Party was 
formed and the twelve years of growth had created a succulent fruit for the 
far-left movement: the watermelon. Green on the outside and red on the 
inside, the watermelon became the perfect metaphor for the Green Party with 
its deeply Marxist philosophy hidden underneath a thin environmentalist 
facade. If only the Greens had a sense of humor they might actually adopt 
the melon as their official symbol.

         In reality, however, the Greens are not a joke, a metaphor, or an 
innocuous party to be ignored. Having captured nearly 3 percent of the 
national vote in the 2000 presidential elections under the banner of Ralph 
Nader, and having recently captured 170 offices in state and local election 
in the November 2002 cycle, the Greens have become by far the largest 
independent or third-party in the United States. At last they have become 
organized, focused, and bent on conquering the American electoral system. 
That is certainly not a laughing matter to anyone on the Right who has even 
a passing knowledge of their socialist intentions. And it raises some 
interesting questions that will have to be answered if the growing 
popularity of the Greens is to be curtailed: what are their plans for 
challenging the major parties and establishing a greater electoral base, 
and what will they do once they have taken national offices? The answer to 
these questions can be found in their party program and in their current, 
wholly anti-American, position on the impending war with Iraq.

         What, exactly, do the Greens want for the American People? To read 
straight from the Program off one of their websites, they would send out "A 
call to CREATE and CONSERVE a rich, DIVERSE environment characterized by a 
sense of COMMUNITY" (emphasis in original). That doesn't sound especially 
dangerous or socialist until you read further and discover that "create" 
means to tax into abject poverty to pay for all the new government 
programs, "conserve" means to forgo the use of technology or fossil fuels 
until everyone freezes to death or starves, "diverse" means rights for all 
peoples except white males, and "community" means an enormous government 
controlling the now retched lives of all formerly free citizens.

         Although this may seem harsh, the foregoing assumptions have been 
fleshed out by the Green Party's platforms. So in case anyone doubts that 
the Greens have Marxist pretensions, here is just a partial laundry list of 
their goals once they have complete control of the government:

1. Forming "citizen committees" to run businesses, schools, and farms and 
(ridiculously) forming "Children's Parliaments" where "representatives 
elected by students to discuss, debate and make proposals to their city 
councils and school boards" can meet.

2. Creating government programs to administer a "free" national health-care 
system, a "free" national day-care system, a "free" national 
higher-education system, and of course a "children's agenda" which will "be 
put in place to focus attention and concerted action on the future that is 
in our children".

3. Implementing a state funded 
<http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=2810>"living wage" 
for all families with proposals as high as $26,000 per year for a family of 
four and also guaranteed employment by the state.

4. A call for the complete ban on fossil fuels and, for the technologically 
challenged, the limiting of new industries and the penalizing of the 
computer industry because "the manufacture of computer chips, computers and 
peripherals involves a host of chemicals that end up in our water, air, and 

5. Passage of a myriad of social reforms including universal, on-demand, 
abortion, same-sex marriage, reparations for blacks, (more) "equal" rights 
for women and minorities, an end to the "Prison-Industrial" complex, 
legalization of drugs and amnesty for drug criminals, and (just for laughs) 
full "human" rights for animals.

6. A change in defense and international policy including gigantic cuts in 
the defense budget of up to 99 percent, full submission to the U.N. as the 
world governing body, admission to the World Court, and "support" for our 
dearest friends in
 China, And the Greens have freely associated with 
Communists and other groups who hate the United States. In instance after 
instance, the Greens have joined anti-war groups and radical "umbrella" 
organizations in an attempt to promote their anti-American agenda. Examples 

         * The Green Party affiliation with 
<http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=1544>Act Now to 
Stop War and End Racism. Not only was the Green Party a coalition co-signer 
for A.N.S.W.E.R, but they also helped organize the group's anti-war rallies 
and went to great lengths to promote the events by advertising them on the 
Green websites. Greens apparently had no problem with A.N.S.W.E.R. being 
spawned from the World Workers Party, 
<http://www.frontpagemag.com/articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=5802>a Stalinist 
group whose slogan is - no kidding! - "We're for socialism."

         * The Green Party signed and distributed the petition for 
<http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=3676>N.I.O.N. (Not 
In Our Name) – a group of general leftist anti-war types * The Greens 
joined with such organizations as the International Socialist Organization, 
Left Turn (slogan: "from anti-capitalism to revolution"), the Socialist 
Party USA and the Iraqi Peace Fund in becoming affiliates for 
<http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=6024>United For 
Peace and Justice. UFPJ, as FrontPage Magazine has shown, is an umbrella 
group protesting against the war and headed by lefty pro-Castro 
"intellectuals," who sell bumper stickers proclaiming, "Preemptive War is 
Terrorism" and "War Equals Death."

         * The Greens are a founding member of the Progressive Politics 
Network, the group that spawned the 9-11 Emergency National Network which 
was created to oppose the war on terror. P.P.N. includes as its backers 
such anti-American organizations as the Black Radical Congress

         The last association should not come as any surprise to eagle-eyed 
conservatives who know by now that the Green Party is actively pursuing, as 
a national candidate for 2004, Miss 
"<http://www.frontpagemagazine.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=783>What Did 
Bush Know and When Did He Know It" 
<http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=787>Cynthia McKinney.

         The Green Party is deceptive, employing the tried-and-true tactics 
of the front groups of old Again, like the Marxists before them, the Greens 
use lies and half-truths to conceal what they really represent while 
attempting to sway the uninformed. The 
movement gives them convincing ideological concealment while providing 
maximum electoral exposure. Of all the prominent groups in the peace crowd, 
the Greens have the most to gain: they are the only "alternative" party 
able to field real candidates. And that makes them dangerous.

         So the time has come for the Right to take the Greens seriously 
and realize that a viable national party has emerged ready to get in bed 
with even the most evil of men to further its cause. With a solid 
organization, an electoral strategy, and a Marxist ideology and behavior 
that will gain them followers through the "peace" movement, it is time to 
expose these "Greens" and allow the American public to taste this 
watermelon for what it is - a bitter Red fruit.
