Group Tied To International Religious Neo-Fascist Para-Military Cult Accused Of Assassination Plot On Pope And Reagan
TFP, an anti-gay neo-fascist para-military Catholic cult that has been supported by NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, released this video in which they admit they filmed at busy intersections in the African-American community throughout cities in Illinois because as they say in the video, “90% of the African American community supports traditional marriage.” It’s like going to Toys R Us and asking people to clap if they like toys.
But the important fact here is that there actually is an anti-gay neo-fascist para-military cult that has been supported by NOM parading around America, and you need to know who these people are.
As The New Civil Rights Movement reported earlier this year, TFP — actually, TFP Student Action, a project of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property – is a chapter of “Tradition, Family, Property” (TFP), which has been described by the UN as “an ultramontane Catholic group, strongest in Brazil and Argentina, which among other things maintains that all Popes since John XXIII have come under Marxist influence.”
TFP often distributed a pamphlet, “10Reasons Why Homosexual ‘Marriage’ is Harmful and Must be Opposed,” while wearing military-looking black uniforms with wide red sashes (neo-fascists, anyone?)
Who is “TFP?”
According to their website,
TFP Student Action is a project of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property. Founded in 1973, the American TFP was formed to resist, in the realm of ideas, the liberal, socialist and communist trends of the times and proudly affirm the positive values of tradition, family and private property. The American TFP was inspired by the work of the Brazilian intellectual and man of action Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira.
What We Do
Networking with thousands of students and concerned parents, TFP Student Action defends traditional moral values on college campuses. Inspired by the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church, TFP volunteers are on the front lines of the culture war, working to restore the values of Christian civilization.
TFP activities are carried out by 75 full-time volunteers and have the support of 120,000 members nationwide. The director of TFP Student Action is John Ritchie.
Now, here’s what else you need to know about TFP.
According to the UN Refugee Agency, “[i]n a 1986 article, The Washington Post described TFPas an “all-male, extreme right-wing group with chapters in 13 countries” (15 May 1986). The Brazil-based organization was financed mainly by wealthy South American families and supported the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile (ibid.). It was banned for its paramilitary activities in Venezuela, where it was implicated in 1984 in a plot to assassinate the Pope, a charge that the group denied.”
Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) is a Catholic religious sect with branches a number of countries. The TFP was founded by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira in Brazil in 1960, and he remained president of the Brazilian branch’s national council until his death in 1995.”
In October 1984 the Latin America Weekly Report described TFP as “an ultramontane Catholic group, strongest in Brazil and Argentina, which among other things maintains that all Popes since John XXIII have come under Marxist influence.”
The TFP branch in Venezuela was banned in 1984 when plans were discovered to murder Pope John Paul II during a visit to Venezuela. In addition, according to security reports, members of TFP had travelled to the United States to conspire to assassinate President Ronald Reagan.
Then there’s this:
The American TFP’s worldview is based on Corrêa de Oliveira’s 1959 study, Revolution and Counter-Revolution. According to the aims laid out in this book, TFP acts to oppose the anti-Christian process that has undermined Christian civilization since the 14th century, the “Revolution” of the study’s title. This “Revolution” has three phases which progressively undermine the Church and social order:
- The Protestant “Pseudo-Reformation” and its rejection of religious authority and inequality, in particular the Pope.
- The “Enlightenment” and the French Revolution and its rejection of temporal authority, in particular the King and nobility.
- The Communist Revolution and its rejection of economic inequality.
The final phases that follow (now taking place) seek to eradicate the Church and Christian civilization while applying more radical egalitarianism and implementing neo-paganism.
The American TFP promotes what it sees as the values of Christianity, and opposes liberal and egalitarian ideas, policies, and trends in both society as a whole and in the Catholic Church. In addition to supporting all official Catholic teaching, the group also argues for the need for authentic elites in society that raise, above all, the moral tone of general society, as witnessed by de Oliveira’s Nobility & Analogous Traditional Elites in the Allocutions of PiusXII. In this book, de Oliveira seeks to balance the notion of “preferential option for the poor” idea in some modern liberal Catholic social thinking, with support for the natural elite that exists in all societies, according to the teaching of PiusXII, that they may become the obligated class working for the good of society (Noblesse Oblige).
“ If the Revolution is disorder, the Counter-Revolution is the restoration of order. And by order we understand the peace of Christ in the reign of Christ. That is, Christian civilization, austere and hierarchical, fundamentally sacral, anti-egalitarian and anti-liberal.
If you read the poorly-written writeup at TFP’s site, you’ll see who truly frightening they are.
