You may have seen this before, but it's worth viewing again. This was recorded in 1969...it was reality then, but now the socialist/communist movement has moved so far down the road we are on the verge of losing our Democracy. How prescient was that speaker, 52 years ago!!!
Yes prescient in today’s view, with the exception that the further along the Marxists have been able to subvert institutions - academia, the media and “Democrats- to operate in favor of Marxist narratives the less likely is a Communist victory to be violent and the more likely it will complete all its objectives with just that subversion and not violence (other than the occasional violent protest or riot, meant for intimidation of the “uncommitted”).
we are on the verge of losing our Democracy.
We do not have a Democracy! We have a Constitutional Republic. Only Democrats have a Democracy, aka mob rule.
I’ll disagree with you because I think Trump forced this escalation of their attacks on us. There was no way they could take another 4 years of him exposing and mocking them and have any hope of success in any near time frame.
The Left as they so often do went too far, too fast.
“We do not have a Democracy!”
I know that and so does the speaker. My guess is he used the word “democracy “ when he meant freedom.
We have a Constitutional Republic.
Yep. I can’t begin to imagine how many times I have had to make that statement in conversations with family and friends. Most of them reply, “What’s that?” or “Where did you hear that?”
We have a Constitutional Republic.
***We LOST our constitutional republic in 2008 when SCOTUS refused to do their job and determine the constitutional requirements of Natural Born Citizen, which definition had been held for more than 200 years as ‘born on US soil to 2 US citizen parents’. When SCOTUS told the entire country that NONE of us had standing in Berg vs. Obama, that was the official changing of this nation into an oligarchy. It is very similar to the historically accepted threshold when Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon river and started the Roman civil war, thus ending the Roman republic and starting the Roman Empire.
The reason why SCOTUS is given lifetime appointment is so they can be protected from the political ramifications of their decisions, but they regularly BASE their decisions on political ramifications. In particular, they have inserted their voice where it was clearly states’ rights issues such as abortion but here they REFUSED to do their job when it was obviously theirs to do.
We do not have a “democracy”.
We are a Republic.
IF we can keep it.
As always, mob rule becomes 'monarch rule' the moment power is consolidated.
Ask Xi Jinping.
Words mean things - ‘freedom’ is not a synonym for ‘democracy’. Never second guess or make excuses as those almost always are wrong.
I think we’re both saying he same thing. By causing them to abandon their plan of incrementally introducing Socialism/Communism Trump made us all aware of their plan and by doing that made the success of their plan far more difficult and much in doubt.
‘freedom’ is not a synonym for ‘democracy’.
Of course it isn’t and I never said it was. I said the author of the video probably used democracy because it is rightly or wrongly associated with freedom.
At this point, if we can retake it.
You said, “My guess is he used the word “democracy “ when he meant freedom.”
Now you say, “Of course it isn’t and I never said it was.”
The whole thing is indefensible - words are what they are.
Can you read? Do you have a comprehension problem?
I CLEARLY said “My guess is he used democracy......”
Key word here in case you missed it is “GUESS”
I’ve been heard to say that they need to bring back the practice of Macarthyism in the face of the current stupidity of communism and socialism in this country.
“I’ve been heard to say that they need to bring back the practice of Macarthyism in the face of the current stupidity of communism and socialism in this country.”
McCarthy was absolutely right and that’s why he had to be “Cancelled”.
Yes, and Dr. Joseph P. Farrell has written brilliantly on the subject
