Since the November 8th election of Donald Trump, the exposing of the communist roots of the Democrat Party has grown exponentially. The absolute hatred for anything and anyone conservative has become accepted behavior by left wing media and virtually every elected Democrat.
Some refuse to believe that the Democrats have gone full blown communist but look at Bernie Sanders. He is an Independent but caucuses with the Democrats. He’s a full-blown socialist. He wants free college, free healthcare, 90% tax and total gun control. New York City’s mayor, DeBlasio, is an admitted communist. He even has come against private property: It shouldn’t come as surprise that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who campaigned on fighting income inequality and wants to tax the rich to pay for public transit improvements, has a fairly dim view of private property rights. But “dim” is apparently a bit of an understatement. De Blasio flat out does not believe in the right to private property.
That’s highlighted in its starkest terms in a New York piece out this week. Here is de Blasio’s response when asked about efforts to fight income inequality:
What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development….
Look, if I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed. And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents. That’s a world I’d love to see, and I think what we have, in this city at least, are people who would love to have the New Deal back, on one level. They’d love to have a very, very powerful government, including a federal government, involved in directly addressing their day-to-day reality. 1 This mindset is 100% communist.
Don’t even think that this is a modern issue with the Democrat Party. FDR’s economic policies were heavy socialist. Eleanor Roosevelt helped push for healthcare as a right even though it is a privilege. The effect is to bolster American support for the principle that healthcare is a human right, a norm accepted by most countries and especially by other advanced democracies, but long ignored in mainstream American political discourse despite its origins in the work of a US President and First Lady.
That healthcare is a human right is in fact a basic principle of international human rights law that emanates from the ideas of Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt. In his 1944 State of the Union Address, President Roosevelt called for an Economic Bill of Rights, including “the right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health.”
The 1948 United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, drafted under the leadership of Eleanor Roosevelt, drew on FDR’s ideas to include rights to medical care and security in the event of sickness, and codifying these principles into a binding international treaty, the 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights established “the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health” 2 This too is 100% communist.
Some will call me a conspiracy nut but look up the communist manifesto and see how many of them are in place in America today. All of them have been implemented by Democrats. If you still doubt me Norman Thomas of the Socialist Party of America ran for president six times stated in a speech on November 20, 1944: “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.”
He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.” 3 To make the matters worse, he was a Presbyterian minister! How does a so-called minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ embrace communism? The only way that can happen is to be totally ignorant of the Word of God.
American children today know nothing of America’s founding. Our school system has made it illegal to teach our history because it is steeped in the Christian faith and you can’t ‘talk about religion’ is public schools, unless it’s islam. Many schools seem to target conservative student groups simply because they’re conservative. Conservative speakers are cancelled time and time again at colleges across the country: California State University at Los Angeles — Ben Shapiro
Critics slammed the conservative writer and claimed his proposed lecture— about microaggressions, Black Lives Matter, and safe spaces — was not a debate but an attack. The university revoked his invitation, later allowing Shapiro to come to the campus after he threatened legal action.
“These aren’t diversity warriors,” Shapiro told Breitbart News. “They’re jackbooted thugs.” 4 Conservative Writer David Horowitz’s Talk At UC Berkeley Cancelled Due To Security Concerns. 5 NYU College Republicans cancel gay conservative speaker. 6 DePaul cancels conservative’s speech.7
Why are these speakers being cancelled? Students are being taught communist ideologies and that ideology does NOT allow for any other point of view being talked about. Hitler did the same kind of thing in the 1930’s. He burned books with view points he disagreed with, imprisoned opposition party members and even executed many of them. We haven’t gone that far yet, but we are heading in that direction very quickly. Look at how students react to opposing views. They have to run to a safe place and play with playdough or something else to make them feel ‘unthreatened’. These are the people that will be running the country in 20 years! Let that sink in.
This indoctrination is happening in every grade level all the way through college. This is why the right school is so imperative. Homeschool if you have to because your child’s future depends on it, the future of our nation depends on it.
