The freest of nations is submitting to the ideology of control.
Communists, Socialists, Progressives all have the same goal of overturning our Capitalist system and replacing it with a centralized statist government. Progressives are different in that they like their crony corporatist structure. Other than that, there isn’t much difference.
Statists are what they are and they all don’t stop until they are in complete control.
Since the 1930s, the communists have used the term ‘Progressive’ to hide their true nature and intent. Communism is not dead, they’ve morphed and exploit the label ‘Progressive’ to their great advantage.
Traditional Americans who want limited government, fiscal responsibility, adherence to our Bill of Rights and the rule of law are under fire from the Democratic Party and the media who actively promote their causes. It is a distraction from the real threat which is the Socialism and Marxist Communism consuming the Democratic Party.
In political and social sciences, communism is a social, political, and economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of the communist society, which is a socioeconomic order structured upon the common ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money, and the state.
It is what destroying the rich is about along with overpaying people for menial work. The absurdity of $10 or $15 an hour providing a living wage is not really absurd because its actual intent is to pay people for time or effort not skill, talent or outcome as Marx espoused.
Everything will soon be based on ‘disparate income’ and the protected classes will be decided by the government. They won’t be Republicans, Conservatives or Libertarians, rest assured.
The milder forms of Communism such as Democratic Socialism and Progressivism allow for the elite political class to do business as Capitalists via a system of cronyism.
Wiki notes that Communism includes a variety of schools of thought, which broadly include Marxism, anarchist communism, and the political ideologies grouped around both. All these hold in common the analysis that the current order of society stems from its economic system, capitalism, that in this system, there are two major social classes: the working class – who must work to survive, and who make up a majority of society – and the capitalist class – a minority who derive profit from employing the proletariat, through private ownership of the means of production (the physical and institutional means with which commodities are produced and distributed), and that political, social and economic conflict between these two classes will trigger a fundamental change in the economic system, and by extension a wide-ranging transformation of society. The primary element which will enable this transformation, according to this analysis, is the social ownership of the means of production.
Statist doom and gloom ideology can only succeed if they win over the nation’s psyche which they are doing effectively. We can see it in the fight over the Confederate battle flag on the grounds of the South Carolina state capitol
They must destroy the South’s identity. It isn’t over racism, it’s over traditionalism.
Talk show host Rush Limbaugh said on his show in July:
“If you take a look at the timeline of progressive events, their speed and rapidity with which the left is conducting this assault on all of these American traditions and institutions, if you don’t think the American flag’s in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider,” Limbaugh said.
“It isn’t gonna be long before the American flag is gonna cause chills, fear, scary thoughts,” Limbaugh continued.
When you see Obama’s use of symbolism, you can’t doubt their awareness of the meaning of symbolism. Obama had his own symbol and it wasn’t Uncle Sam or the US flag. His chief spokesperson, Jay Carney, has communist posters hanging all over his kitchen, his czars like to quote Mao.
Leftist political correctness is destroying our First Amendment and the Democrats are doing what they can to destroy the Second, the Fourth, the Tenth and so on. Our Marine Corps was just told to ban the use of the word “man.” We wouldn’t want “men” in the Marine Corps under Marxism.
The Democrats are rewriting history, corrupting the youth, redefining the USA as a welfare state because dependent people are obedient people.
Many in the Democratic party have blatantly said they want to rewrite the Constitution and their examples or final products look like the UN Declaration of Human Rights, a socialist document which promotes the centralization of power in government and the diminution of the individual. It makes everything a right and to do it, the individual and the individual’s land and property must belong to the collective.
The left must erase our history and they are. They are digging up Civil War generals and banishing the names of historical figures under one guise or another.
Leftists see the United States as an evil place that needs reforming. They see a welfare state that takes care of the collective from birth to death as desirable. Unfortunately, their morals are all relative which makes deceit easy and often preferable. If bullying, taxing, imprisonment and other means of force are needed for these know-it-all control freaks to enact their beneficent nanny state, they will do it without guilt.
We are subjects of gradualism meant to destroy Capitalism and our Constitution. Our once free nation is being transformed into the un-freest of nations before our eyes and if you notice and speak of it, you will be denounced as a conspiracy nut.
All pillars of society are being centralized.
We are being spied on and the movement to spy on us is conveniently advancing along with the statists’ movement. Lampposts, drones, our appliances, TVs, and soon our cars will all be able to spy on us and transmit to third parties thanks to the Internet of Things and smart technology.
Nothing can go wrong there!
Our media, universities and government agencies are filled with leftists.
The UN is moving ahead with the 2030 version of Agenda 21 and so is Barack Obama as if the other nations agreed to do anything. Climate changing is the tool.
Obama is allowing the government to seize land throughout the country and, through his Affirmatively Fair Housing Rule, he is socially engineering us from suburbs with local governments into redesigned suburbs that will act as satellites for mega-cities.
Why is the U.S. flooding the country with people from foreign nations at a rate at which they cannot be assimilated? In fact, the government isn’t talking about assimilation, they are talking about Americans adjusting to and embracing all the cultures of those who come here.
The only logical reason for this to obliterate our culture and our values.
We are very far beyond Socialism.
Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which property is privately owned. Individual rights are so critical that they can only be violated by force.
Socialism states that man has no right to exist for his own sake.
Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Totalitarianism, Collectivism, whatever you choose to call these types of -isms, concentrate power in the state. They require the subjugation of the individual to a group and force everyone to think the same and act the same for the collective good.
While they steal one’s identity and personal resources, they claim they are the generous altruistic ones. Theft is good, individualism is bad.
Individualism holds that man is an independent entity with an inalienable right to the pursuit of his own happiness in a society where men deal with one another as equals.
We can see in the debate over the Second Amendment that the principle of natural, inalienable rights is under assault. The left believes our rights come from the government which serves the collective good.
While hoping for a Utopia that solves all problems of crime, racism and other evils, statism actually creates a dystopian world without incentive or hope. We see microcosms of these dystopias in Detroit, Chicago and other liberal cities. It always ends in political absolutism.
Many people see what is coming and it’s what they want. They love the populist ideology of a kook like Bernie Sanders and his free everything which will give the unambitious stolen assets while attending 10 trillion in deficit to our budget almost immediately.
Spreading the wealth, eliminating income inequality, rights for all classes and races sounds great but the results are always the opposite. The Democratic Party denies what they’ve become but one only has to look at what they do, not what they say, to see the truth.
In order to accomplish their goals, the leftists must cause civil unrest and blame Capitalism forcing people to look for something different.
The Washington Times reported that Communist aka Socialist George Soros’ Open Society Institute has provided a staggering $33 million or more in just one year to support organizations that have emboldened and aided the activists and protesters in Ferguson.
“The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre,” the Washington Times stated.
Soros-financed groups as the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago; the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York and Equal Justice USA from New York; Sojourners, the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington; and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation all “descended on Ferguson starting in August and later organized protests and gatherings in the city until late last month,” the Times reported.
“Other Soros-funded groups made it their job to remotely monitor and exploit anything related to the incident that they could portray as a conservative misstep, and to develop academic research and editorials to disseminate to the news media to keep the story alive.”
Tied into Soros, the Obama administration and the Clintons, is Bill de Blasio who has his own anti-police quest and who has fueled the protests. He recently came out with a plan for the nation which reads like a Communist Manifesto, misleadingly called, Contract with America.
De Blasio has a history of working with extremist activist groups to stir protests, including ACORN aka the NY Communities for Change and MoveOn.
Protests against police which were led by the group Act Now To End War & Stop Racism Coalition, or ANSWER, along with Occupy Wall Street and several other communist and pro-Palestinian groups work with ACORN.
De Blasio previously served several terms on the city council and as New York City public advocate from 2010 to the present and endorsed ACORN. He hired an ACORN affiliate for his public advocate campaign and as a councilman, he steered $115,000 to ACORN and affiliates, according to Aaron Klein of WND.
In 2011, using his position of public advocate, de Blasio launched a nonprofit called the Coalition for Accountability in Political Spending, or CAPS. The group received its primary launch donation of $400,000 from Soros’ Open Society Institute, Klein reportedly this past week on his radio show.
De Blasio’s ties to communist organizations and uprisings in the nation runs deep.
De Blasio’s father was a communist named Warren Wilhelm. A navy vet who lost his left leg in World War II, Warren Wilhelm fell prey to McCarthyism in the 1950s. His career as an economist at the Commerce Department derailed when he and his wife were questioned about their views on communism. Wilhelm Sr. later became an alcoholic and de Blasio’s parents divorced. “The pain he caused people, even if he didn’t mean to, just so many people were badly affected,” de Blasio said in an interview with The New York Times. “I think I really was angered by that.” By the end of high school the he had ditched his given name and opted for his childhood nickname Bill and his mother’s maiden name.
Monica Crowley’s riveting speech about Obama’s takeover of all pillars of society in December, 2013. It is well worth listening to. You don’t have to agree with everything she says to agree with the key points.
