Socialism-Communism-Democratism -- What's the Difference? Part 2 of 2
In the American Revolution we had our Tories and our Loyalists who were willing advocates of the English continued rule. In WW II Norway had its Quislings and France was infested with Vichies. Since then we here have been infected with collaborators, legal rebels, insurgents, accepted traitors and the 4th estate which in truth is a 5th column. All who have knowingly aided and abetted the enemy. Especially since the Vietnam war our country no longer fully recognizes treason or the job description of a traitor.
During and since Roosevelt the socialist and communist minded have infiltrated our government from top to bottom and have held heavy sway in the direction of what was once the Democrat party. During and since Vietnam the un-American forces at work attempting to undermine our country have grown bolder thanks to an absolutely apathetic public.
The Democratists became emboldened when they discovered how completely they dominated their colleagues beginning with the war in Vietnam. They found that they could, through the aid of their cohorts in the news, actually determine the results of a war. They found that the American public could be easily swayed and in this discovery were able to recruit more and more followers.
Our soldiers won the "skirmishes" in the field but the Democratists won the battle for North Vietnam right here at home. And their treachery went unpunished.
On April 18, 2004 in a Detroit News article Tom Sowell pointed out, "Support for the war eroded and demands that we get out reached a crescendo. The irony in all this is that the communistic insurgents were beaten decisively during the Tet offensive. But what they lost in battle in Vietnam the communists won in the American media and in public opinion shaped by the media."
In later years, after the communists were firmly in power in Vietnam, they admitted that the Tet offensive was a military disaster for them. The Premier of N. Vietnam stated ---- "That if it hadn't been for your rebels and collaborators we would have sued for peace but because of them we had too much going for us."
General Vo Nguyen Giop, commander of the North Vietnamese forces believed that their war strategy was valid and well grounded and well formulated but not sufficient for victory. He also stated that his military had been hard pressed to being victorious in any battle but they were encouraged to continue since the American troops were being knifed from behind with the cleaver of American public opinion.
In an interview which appeared in the Wall Street Journal August 3, 1995, the then Colonel Bui Tin stated frankly "that the key to their victory was the American home front, and that they were encouraged to fight on by all the anti-war demonstrations in the United States." He further acknowledged that "Visits to Hanoi by people like Jane Fonda and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses."
Today's Democratists, under the temporary leadership of John Kerry, continue to allude to the war in Iraq as "just like Vietnam." Their purpose of course is to demean our country, give the enemy hope, and win the presidential election. They are unwittingly correct. It IS just like Vietnam. Traitors then and traitors today. No difference. Vintage Marx. Subverting our efforts and our country was and is the name of the game. They just pulled out their old and successful play book.
The man on the street today who thinks he's a democrat and is following a democrat cause should be challenged with the following:
Do you believe: in the equal distribution of wealth; the fomentation of class envy and the superiority of a collective society; in the principle that government should soak the rich; in that perversion is a commodity to be virtued and extolled rather than just understood; in rewarding and encouraging the indiscriminate proliferation of unwed mothers; in that laws should protect the criminal at the expense of the victim; in that government should provide, protect and dominate your life from cradle to grave; that the UN is a viable, efficient and effective world peace keeper and that our soldiers should be under its command; that political correctness promotes respectful unity rather than resentful conformity and that free speech should be subverted to its subjective whims; that higher taxes are the means to solving our national debt; that government should fund everything that moves; that pitting class against class strengthens our nation; that money directed to the defense of our country should be re-directed to the agents of social engineering; that competition should be eliminated; that private corporations are the cause of all our problems; and that the student achievers should be held back so that non-achievers do not lose their self esteem.
This is but the tip of the iceberg. We are faced today not with civil differences of opinion but with actual pronounced hatred. An uncommon trait in the history of the American political system. This should not be unexpected since the leftists are now so much in control of the Democratist party and the American citizenry has been so brain washed and desensitized to socialist jargon, they no longer fear what once would have been a citizen backlash. The philosophy of Karl Marx is now unabashedly accepted.
Samuel Adams remarked to the traitors of his day ------ a day which recognized treachery on the home front, "If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
The last half century of dumbing down our education system and its graduates has taken its toll. Not knowing American history and not being able to develop a feel as to the tremendous sacrifices of our forefathers in bringing us to where we are has been an invitation to not taking advantage of its fulfillments, unwittingly repeating its former mistakes and not appreciating fully the wonderment of its unique creation.
The democrats who today are ignorantly supporting the democratists must take heed. Open your eyes, listen to what these traitors are saying, re-ignite your beliefs in this the greatest country in the world and act accordingly.
