The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party is calling for violence, intimidation, and destruction following in the footsteps of other collectivists for years. Remember, the collectivist believes in the supremacy of the state. The collectivist believes that all individuals must conform to the dictates of the ruling elite. The collectivist advocates that all rights of the individual be controlled by the state including natural rights such as speech, assembly, right to petition the government, religion, and the press. In order to control these rights, the collectivist has used violence and intimidation by politicians, government officials, and street thugs.
We are hearing calls for these tactics by nationally known Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). We just witnessed the tactics of destruction and intimidation being used in the recent Supreme Court hearings. We saw the same tactics used in the Bork hearings and the Thomas hearings. We are witnessing street thugs in Portland and other U S cities. We have heard no condemnation of these typical collectivist tactics by prominent Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are traveling down the same road the Fascists traveled in the 1920’s and 1930’s. They are even using the same tactics that were used back then. Only the names have changed. Back then, it was the ‘blackshirts’ and ‘brownshirts,’ today it is ANTIFA and ‘Occupy.’ But, make no mistake, they are of the same mind and spirit, and the same political goals.
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are also using the same tactics used by Lenin; that is propaganda and lies. Lenin complained that workers, left to their own devices, tended to support trade unions that made their lives better, rather than revolutionary groups bent on overthrowing the entire government. To Lenin, these foolish people were incapable of understanding what was really their own best interests.
For Lenin, as for all collectivists, the ends justified the means. So, the manipulation of public opinion through propaganda meant telling less than the truth, misleading, and lying. There was no need to search for knowledge because what they said the people should want because it was what was best for the people is what they offered.
If the Bolsheviks, the Nazis, and all collectivists cannot win converts, they were/are happy to use force. In fact, their propaganda was/is often more about monopolizing the public discussion than persuading with ideas.
NOTHING HAS CHANGED. THE METHODS OF PAST COLLECTIVISTS SUCH AS LENIN AND HITLER ARE THE SAME METHODS USED BY THE MARXIST/PROGRESSIVES (DEMOCRATS) TODAY.
I beg all Americans to study history, so you can identify the evil facing the United States today. It is not new. We must recognize these tactics and resist them, otherwise we will suffer the same evil results others have suffered because of these collectivist demagogues of which the current Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is a HUGE part.
A great place to start to understand this evil of collectivism is to read “The Road To Tyranny, Individualism to Collectivism” available on Amazon or at www.mygrandchildrensamerica.com.
