ELDER PATRIOT- The Democrats’ claim that the Russians influenced the last election to help Donald Trump get elected is laughable in its hypocrisy. For proof we just need to look at the history of American politics.
Beginning in 1928, Socialist Norman Thomas ran for president of the United States over six consecutive electoral cycles. He finally decided his efforts were unnecessary because they were duplicative of the already powerful Democratic Party.
He bid farewell to politics with this observation:
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”
Under the guise of progressivism the Democrats’ agenda has come straight from the old Soviet Union. In fact, Norman Thomas likely never envisioned the extent to which the Democrats would align with communists.
Democrats shared intense ideological similarities with the Soviet Union throughout the late 1800’s, the twentieth century and up until today. In fact, it’s hard to imagine any party being more committed to carrying out the wants of the Russian politburo than the Democrats have been.
- Having witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union caused by the weight of government taxation, regulation and corruption, Democrats continued piling on all three over the 3 decades since.
- Before that, they tried handcuffing our ability to defend ourselves, and our NATO allies, with a series of dangerous concessions through the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) that empowered and strengthened the Soviet Union’s strategic ability to wage nuclear war.
- Prior to that, Democrats passed Social Security with the promise that it would be a sacred trust. Then they plundered it. It is now estimated to be at least $100 trillion in debt while the percentage that is withheld from taxpayers earnings has increased 13-fold since its inception. Want to bankrupt a country? This is a good place to start. The Russians couldn’t have devised a better plan to destroy Americans’ faith in their government or to collapse their economy.
- Recently, when Russia needed more fissile material in order to expand its nuclear capabilities, Democrats were there to supply it. All it cost was $135 million in direct payment to Hillary’s personal foundation, the Democrats’ designated successor to Barack Obama.
What could possibly motivate one political party to want to fracture our national unity through unregulated immigration and identity politics if not allegiance to a foreign entity?
Remember it was the Democrats’ that ended the House on Un-American Activities Committee and that conducted a personal jihad against Senator Joe McCarthy because he was identifying communists who had become part of Franklin Roosevelt’s administration.
Only a person intent on deluding themselves can buy the Democrats’ claim that President Trump is aligned with Russia. How can I say that? After a year of illegal surveillance on Donald Trump, his campaign staff, and now his White House staff, the most acclaimed intelligence agencies haven’t presented a shred of evidence.
In contrast, Democrats have a century-long resume of doing the bidding of communists in the Kremlin. So much so that it’s a legitimate claim that they take their orders from the Russians.
Democrats have used their control of the public education system and the Department of Education to turn our schools into little more than collectivist indoctrination centers that has been a longstanding strategy of totalitarian dictatorsships.
The Russians had no need to help tinker in our election, they already have their own political party. Even the conduct of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Donna Brazil and the entire DNC, in pre-ordaining Hillary Clinton as its nominee smacks of Russia’s political practices.
Under the Obama administration spying on private citizens became standard operating procedure, much like Russia does to maintain order. Additionally, the I.R.S. was used as a bludgeon against the Democrats’ political opponents.
Democrats have overplayed their hand with the Russia accusations. It would be appropriate, in light of concerns over Russian involvement in our political mechanisms, for a separate Special Prosecutor to be appointed to tie this all together.
