Your Opinion: Credentials of source outlined

January 11th, 2013 by Mark Bruenger, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

Charles Chamberlin adheres to a classic Saul Alinsky radical dogma shown in the Alinsky book "Rules for Radicals," tactics Chapter, fifth rule: "Ridicule is a man's most potent weapon."

Content is never mentioned by Chamberlin in response to my letter, he just wallows in attempted ridicule while ignoring perfectly correlated truths shown in the content I used to show Communist goals coincided with Democrat goals. Chamberlin is a good fellow traveler and does his best to deflect attention away from the truth, the whole truth and, nothing but the truth with lots of bile, libel and character assassination.

The bestselling book "The Naked Communist" condenses facts about Communism into a single volume. The book is a distillation of more than 100 books and treatises, most written by Communist authors. Stripped of propaganda and pretense Skousen presents the true nature of Communism so Chamberlin hates the book and its author.

Socialism and Communism have the same goal: Total control of the nation's goods, services and citizens.

The supposed wingnut, W. Cleon Skousen, was a popular author, speaker and teacher who lectured in every state and province in North America, and in more than 60 countries worldwide. He was a student of history and a scholar of law, specializing in the principles of freedom, the U.S. Constitution, economics, ancient history, and scriptures.

He served in the FBI for 16 years, four years as chief of police in Salt Lake City, and 10 years as a university professor. He was a prolific writer and produced three national best sellers, "The Naked Communist," "The Naked Capitalist," and "The Five Thousand Year Leap." Eight of his books were used as college texts, and several were translated and published in other countries.

Skousen received his law doctorate from George Washington University Law School. He was admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia and before the District Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Among Skousen's students were dozens of U.S. senators and representatives, two Supreme Court justices, and several candidates for president. He believed knowledge and understanding were necessary to maintaining a free country, and spent his entire adult life opening up complex issues for deeper understanding by students and audiences all around the world.

Chamberlin needs to inform us about his accomplishments before he calls anybody a wingnut.
