Like a disease, quarantine the Democrat Party in its own dystopic enclaves
Decades ago, the United States stopped producing Americans, replacing them with “U.S. citizens,” who could exploit the country’s economic benefits without embracing its founding documents, culture, history and traditions.
One such example is Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, an Indian immigrant who arrogantly rejects free speech, claiming he and the company he leads are “not to be bound by the First Amendment.”
On October 26, 2016, sensing the trajectory of the Democrat Party, I warned about the danger of electing Hillary Clinton as President.
“I consider myself a patriot, someone who believes in the Constitution, the rule of law and representative government.
Under a President Hillary Clinton, none of those will any longer exist.
Electing Hillary will mean, quite literally, the end of the United States as it was originally designed.
The Constitution will be de facto obsolete; the rule of law will be arbitrarily applied dependent upon one’s financial status or political clout; and we will have a government driven by crony capitalism and political expediency, benefitting only the rich and powerful, and one conspicuous for corruption, fraudulent elections and pseudo-representation.
Under Hillary’s open borders policy, the United States of America will be neither United nor America. It will not be a melting pot, a nation guided by the notion of E Pluribus Unum, but a collection of simultaneous arguments, where the only thing we have in common is our differences.
It will mean a president, who is, without any doubt, hopelessly corrupt and a pathological liar.
It will mean that the organs of government will not be used to enforce the law, but to enforce the political whims of Hillary Clinton, courtesy of the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service.
Because, when blatant and outrageous lies are no longer sufficient to soothe the electorate into complacency, such a government must begin to curtail freedom and oppress the people in order to pursue its policies and remain in power.”
All of that has now been achieved with Joe Biden as the illegitimate occupant of the White House.
Its shredding of the Constitution and disregard for due process, are just symptoms of the Democrat Party’s abandonment of both democracy and sanity in its ruthless pursuit of permanent political power at any cost.
The modern Democrat Party is not without historical precedent. As Democrats continue their political march leftward, they have adopted the non-democratic tactics of the extreme left.
After the successful 1917 communist revolution in Russia, the political left widely believed that a violent proletarian revolt would sweep across Europe and, ultimately, North America. It did not.
As a result, Communist International began to investigate other ways to create the state of societal hopelessness and alienation necessary as a prerequisite for socialist revolution – in essence, to erode western democracy from within.
The single, most important organizational component of that effort was a Communist think tank called the Institute for Social Research, popularly known as the Frankfurt School.
The task of the Frankfurt School was first, to undermine the foundation of Western civilization that emphasized the uniqueness of the individual and, second, to determine new cultural forms that would increase the disaffection of and division among the population.
Just as in classical economic Marxism, certain groups like workers and peasants are a priori good, and other groups like the bourgeoisie and capital owners are evil, in Cultural Marxism, feminists, racial and ethnic minorities and those who define themselves according to sexual orientation are deemed good and “victims” of societal injustice. It logically follows, then, that white males and “privilege” and, by extension, Western civilization, are automatically and irredeemably malevolent.
The Democrat Party now promotes policies that undermine the United States as a sovereign nation, our Constitution, our culture, our traditions, all of what “America” has come to mean. Part of that effort is to weaken our ability to transmit to the next generation the values and traditions upon which the United States was built.
Thus, the need to import individuals with views like Parag Agrawal and the Biden-promoted invasion of illegal aliens with no understanding or commitment to Americanism beyond economic exploitation.
Aided by totalitarian Parag Agrawal and other Big Tech oligarchs, the Democrat Party’s assault on the First Amendment is meant to narrow the range of thought in order to make independent thinking literally impossible because there will be no words in which to express those thoughts. It is accomplished through the systematic destruction of language as “microaggressions” or endlessly repeating statements that are patently untrue, like the existence of more than two biological genders.
The widespread political intolerance promoted by the Democrats and their media allies is largely based on the essay “Repressive Tolerance” written in 1965 by Herbert Marcuse, an adherent of the Frankfurt School.
Fred Bauer, in his article “The Left and ‘Discriminating Tolerance,’” captures Marcuse’s inverted logic and identifies the origin of the political intolerance presently practiced throughout the United States:
“Marcuse argued that, because of the radical repressiveness of Western society, a tolerance for all viewpoints actually contributed to social oppression. A pervasive network of assumptions and biases implicitly privileges the viewpoint of the powerful, so that seemingly ‘equal’ presentations of opposite opinions actually end up benefiting the viewpoint of the powerful. In the light of this situation, Marcuse made a rather cunning inversion (one that has been aped countless times since by cultural organs across the United States): The fact that society is so radically unequal means that we should be intolerant and repressive in the name of tolerance and liberty.”
Marcuse provided the basis for Critical Race Theory and the Equity agenda now being forced upon every American institution.
The inevitable outcome of Democrat policies adopted from the Frankfurt School is the cataclysmic decline of society, a dystopia, the only condition in which a totalitarian, one-party state can exist.
The policies of the Democrat Party are meant to be destructive. Let Democrats live in the dystopia they create. We don’t have to.
The State of New California is attempting to separate itself from Democrat Party malfeasance. It is an example worth emulating throughout the country.
