What is the DNC's real 'vision' for America?
By Ric Wasley
November 6, 2017
Many say they don’t have one - but they do - they just don’t want you to know what it is.
The DNC has been losing election after election and pundits say it’s because they have not articulated a ‘vision’ of their agenda for America. That’s true. But it’s no accident or lack of knowing what they want. They just don’t want us to know what it is. They can’t afford to.
Because no sane American citizen would vote for giving up our freedoms, as guaranteed by the Constitution, to live in a totalitarian dictatorship ruled by a privileged few.
The greatest weakness that we conservatives have is in thinking that today’s Leftists are made up of basically well-meaning people who just have a different vision for the country than we do. It is the same mistake that Germans made in the 1930’s when they thought that all the strange little man with the funny mustache and the guys in Brown shirts wanted, was the ‘best’ for Germany. They found out too late that his idea of ‘best’ meant subjugating and taking away the freedom of everyone else. In fact, do you know that one of the many Nazi slogans of the 1930’s was, “We sh*t on freedom!”?
How chilling is that?
And yet, on the Leftist controlled campuses today, the word “freedom” is considered to be a ‘hate’ word.
How chilling is that?
The more you look at today’s Leftist agenda, the more ominous similarities seem to emerge to some of the most unpleasant regimes in history; Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Moa’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Isis… They all had one thing in common. A burning desire - no, an unquenchable need - to limit, proscribe, or completely ban all forms of personal freedom.
In each instance leading up to total control, another thing these repressive regimes had in common was a take-over of all forms of the media and entertainment industries.
They also, at first slowly, but as they gained more and more power, with increasingly ruthless efficiency, instituted a policy of ‘Political Correctness’ - gradually turning it from a social faux pas into a crime, in many cases punishable by incarceration in a ‘re-education camp’ or even death!
By the way, the term and concept of being "politically incorrect” was coined in the Soviet Union in the 1920’s under the leadership of the sweet old guy, 'Uncle' Joe Stalin. Hardly a glowing recommendation for the foundation of the type of place we’d like to live. Yet, Leftists and Liberals not only embrace the term but violently scream that we must live under it too - insisting that everybody needs to be compelled for the betterment of society.
The Liberal Marxist agenda also requires an unending and ever-increasing stream of unskilled and anti-western emigrants from third-world countries. This will serve to 'balkanize' the host country, destabilize, and divide it, thus ensuring that all opposition remains weak and divided.
Finally, to tie it up in a perfect package, all of the unskilled and dependant new arrivals will rely on the government to survive and thus they become a source of reliable votes for the politicians and bureaucracy who give it to them.
At least that was the way it was supposed to work. Then came the election.
And that is the reason we have seen the DNC/Media complex become so unhinged over the past year. They had planned this all so carefully. They had carefully studied every page of Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." This was to have been the shining jewel in their crown of complete cultural subjugation of the vast swath of middle Amerca that they loathe.
But the wheels came off and they still can't figure out how or why. And thank God for that.
Because rather than holding up the mirror to themselves and asking what they are doing wrong to turn off so many people who love America even more than being given free stuff, they are still convinced that all they need is to do is more of the same - but maybe be a little more vague about it.
Fortunately, that is going to be difficult because today's Dems are made up of many small radical groups, most of whom distrust one another. And the finer they break themselves down by ideology, race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, social class, etc., the more difficult it becomes for the political elite. That is because each group wants to claim the lion's share of handouts and set-asides. Not a good recipe for unity.
All that being said, we can't count them out.
As history has shown us, despite having a message that varies from smarmy to chilling, we must remember that other political parties dedicated to suppressing freedom and the rights of the individual have been able to unite long enough to cause untold misery for the rest of the world.
So let's hope that the Dems keep to their furtive philosophy filled with mealy-mouthed platitudes - because if the day ever comes when their true agenda is known and supported by the majority of voters, it will be a bad day for all of us.
America is today's last and best hope for real liberty for all of its citizens. Let's work to keep it that way.
