Sadly, moderate Democrats are minority in the Democratic Party. Members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and members of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) appear to comprise the majority of Democrats today. Socialists and Communists (Socoms) believe democracy and socialism go hand in hand.
The problem the Socoms attempt to hide is socialism is the governmental ownership (or excess regulation) and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. Power in a socialist government is vested in a dictator and an oligarchy. Power in a democracy is vested in the people and exercised by the people directly or indirectly through a system of representation involving periodic free elections. Socialism and democracy are incompatible; “Democratic Socialists” is an oxymoron.
Once one realizes that the Socoms control the Democratic Party, then the aberrant behavior of the left becomes clear. It is not just the hatred and vitriol yelled at the Secretary of Homeland Security at a local Washington restaurant and her home. It is not just the hypocrisy of the left bemoaning the separation of children from their illegal alien parents. Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama knew about the illegal immigrant detention centers, so too the Socoms of the Democratic Party who said nothing.
As mentioned in previous columns, the Democratic Party perpetuated and defended slavery, started the civil war, opposed reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation and Jim Crow, perpetuated lynchings and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.
In addition, Democrats opposed the 13th Amendment (1865) that abolished slavery; opposed the 14th Amendment (1866) that approved citizenship for Blacks; and opposed the 15th Amendment (1869) that approved voting rights for Blacks.
Today, the Democratic Party has Antifa, the modern day Ku Klux Klan, that attacks conservative Americans much like the Ku Klux Klan attacked Black Americans. Antifa claims to be anti-fascist but it really is Socom.
There are two types of socialism: international and national. The Soviet Union, Communist China, North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela are representative of international socialism. Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy are representative of national socialism. International and national socialism are opposite sides of the same coin: both are evil, having killed millions of people and enslaving even more than they killed. Both types are totalitarian in nature.
So when we see Socoms running through the streets attacking innocent people, attacking government employees and demanding the abolishment of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, we are seeing the enemies of America at work, attempting to tear down our institutions and country. The left is so blinded by hate they have given up on the interests of the former constituencies. It has blinded the left from reality. They live in their own artificial, delusional bubble. The hatred of the left for any position but their own political view is what now divides America. The Democratic Party once championed the “forgotten man and woman.” Now the Democratic Party despises white people, the Constitution, the police, the military, the flag and traditional American values.
This erosion of values and mores of the Democratic Party into the darkness of the socialist and communist secular evilness soared during the Obama administration. A Gallup poll conducted at the end of Obama’s term confirms that fact: a record-high 77 percent of Americans viewed the country as divided.
During the two terms of Obama, Democrats went from a dominant majority to a marginalized party that represents coastal cities but abandoned enormous areas of the country. During this time, Democrats lost 10 percent of their Senate seats, 19 percent of their House seats, and 20 percent of the seats in state legislatures. In addition, the Democrats lost more than a third of its gubernatorial seats. Obama’s main legacy is the collapse of the Democratic Party.
The Socoms of the Democratic Party are in their last gasp. This is why they are so angry. They failed to transform America under Obama. Donald Trump won the presidency. The Socoms hate Trump. But unemployment is at a record low. Black unemployment is at a record low. Hispanic unemployment is at record low. Women’s unemployment is at a record low. Confidence level is at a record high. ISIS has been effectively destroyed. Our military is rebuilding. Our veterans are beginning to receive the health care they deserve. America has more jobs than available workers to fill them. All within 18 months of Trump’s election. Obama didn’t even come close.
Scott S Powell, of the American Thinker, in “Obama, Organizing for Action, and the Death Throes of the Democratic Party,” wrote, “Political correctness remains so dominant in language and culture in the U.S., that no one dares utter the word ‘sedition.’ Unbeknownst to most Americans, Barack Obama is the first ex-president in 228 years of U.S. history to structure and lead a political organization, a shadow government, for the explicit purpose of sabotaging his successor — duly elected President Donald Trump.”
This is the way Socoms work. Obama is a Marxist and always has been. The false accusations of the Trump campaign collusion with Russia are falling apart. Deep state FBI personnel are being investigated and fired. The State Department is next, having complicity in the phoney Steele dossier. The trail will lead back to John Brennan, former CIA Director; Dennis Clapper, former National Intelligence Director; and James Comey, fired FBI Director (see my column, “Fake Intelligence Report,” 1/22/17). And ultimately, the trail will lead to Barack Obama.
America is on the rebound. She is truly exceptional.
