MARXISM, AMERICAN DEMOCRACY & FREEDOM OF THOUGHT

“The counterrevolution to the American Revolution is in full force.  And it can no longer be dismissed or ignored, for it is devouring our society and culture, swirling around our everyday lives, and ubiquitous in our politics, schools, media, and entertainment … it threatens to destroy the greatest nation ever established, along with your freedom, family, and security.” So wrote Mark Levin in American Marxism.[1]

 

            The Democrat Party’s march to a Marxist (or, for those too sensitive to get their souls soiled with memories of bloody political purges of Lenin, Stalin, and Mao elitist totalitarian) state began over a century ago with our first pro-Marxism president Woodrow Wilson.  He advocated a centralized government with increased power and bureaucratic efficiency.  Moreover, he wanted “flexibility to interpret the Constitution in accord with new conditions,” and criticized the “narrow and mechanical separation-of-powers constitutionalism.”[2] Indeed, Wilson desired unlimited presidential power and an activist judiciary.[3] Does any of this sound familiar?

 

            Franklin D. Roosevelt continued where Wilson left off.  He too wanted supreme power. He attempted to pack the Supreme Court with Democrats and won an unprecedented fourth term in the White House.  He began the American Socialist Nanny State, which increased the bureaucratic choke hold on Americans, by enacting the WPA, CCC, and signing the Social Security Act in 1935.  Does this sound familiar?

 

            Lyndon B. Johnson, a devout follower of FDR, had a compliant Supreme Court and Congress.  He initiated the Great Society socialist spending project and let his party continue their segregationist ways through non-support of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Then spent Great Society funding in a war he was not willing to fight.  The Democratic National Committee, controlled by the radical left (Marxists), declined to support LBJ in 1968.  We may have a déjà vu moment on 19 August.

 

            And who can forget Jimmy Carter’s disastrous foreign and economic policies that led to the Iranian Hostage Crisis, Desert One, gasoline rationing, and inflation, while he lectured us about sinning in our hearts.  Does this sound familiar?

 

            As Ronald J. Pestritto wrote, “Wilson’s [ and I will add FDR’s, LBJ’s, Carter’s, Clinton’s, and Obama’s[4]] leadership doctrine … [their] new constitutionalism as a whole – is not as democratic as it seems, but instead amounts to elite governance under a veneer of democratic rhetoric.”[5]

 

            Pestritto’s words concerning Wilson, and my additions, are right on target.  However, older advocates of elite governance had to move cautiously.  Marxists in America were outliers, a fringe group of loonies that found comfortable digs as tenured professors in our universities, especially the Poison Ivy League, during and after World War II.  Herbert Marcuse of Columbia University is a prime example.  A Marxist, he fled Europe to escape the Nazis and began teaching Communist doctrine to wealthy, naïve white children. The fruits of this indoctrination are evident today.

 

            It has taken 80 years, give or take, for Marxism to grow and metastasize, like cancer, in our educational system and from there into all levels of our judicial, legislative, and military systems.  In 2008, Barack Obama, born and raised as a Muslim and Marxist, was the first presidential candidate to feel empowered to denigrate Americans who “cling to their guns and bibles,” and openly admitted he would pursue a “fundamental transformation” of America.  This hatred of Americans and desire to create a Marxist America has, since the 2020 elections, engulfed our country in an orgy of Constitutional attacks and destruction which would have been inconceivable 20 years ago.  Obama, enjoying a shadow third term, uses a demented Joe Biden to implement the fundamental transformation he has long desired.

 

            In the current presidential campaign, we have watched an autocratic government attempt to keep two presidential candidates off the ballot as is done in other Marxist states.  One of them, Democrat RFK, Jr. has been refused secret service protection.  The other, Donald J. Trump, whose Constitutional rights have been denied multiple times, is being tried without any criminal charges being brought by a judge who has donated directly to Biden’s campaign.  Like Stalin, the New York Governor and judiciary have found the man, now they need to find the crime.

 

            Obama tells Biden to ignore the Supreme Court and attempt to pack it.  His Muslim Marxist brothers are allowed to tear apart our university campuses and flood our streets.  We are threatened with unconstitutionally mandated EV purchases, told that Americans are not seeing inflation in groceries and at the gas pump, and that our borders are secure.

 

            Those choruses are usually followed with how Donald Trump is a threat to “democracy.”  What Obama and his junta really mean is that “American democracy” is a threat to their fundamental transformation.  The democracy Marxists (aka Democrats) seek is direct, not representative.  In other words, do away with Congress and the Electoral College, so that each American casts a direct vote on policy issues and presidential elections.  The advantage is that northeast and west coast states with the greatest population centers and largest number of Marxists would determine how the rest of the country lives.  It is also a reason for our borders being open.  The leap from this form of democracy to an elitist totalitarian state would be short.  We could become like the post-WWII Democratic Republic of Germany.  Neither democratic, nor a republic, but a satellite Communist state.

 

            American democracy arose from a “radical freedom of thought” on political and social issues between the Colonies and Great Britain that came to a head after the French and Indian War.  Freedom of thought posited that the “mind is not … free to affirm or deny ideas at will, but is rather constrained to follow the evidence and reasons presented to it.”[6] This freedom to think, derived from such philosophers as Baruch Spinoza and John Locke, is evident in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.  Foundational to these documents was a new concept of what a sovereign was.  Traditionally, a King, Senate, or Parliament, the sovereign to Colonial radical revolutionaries was “the American people.”  As sovereign, the American people determined what the American government would be and what power it would wield for them.[7] The Preamble of the U.S. Constitution is quite clear on that point.

 

             Freedom of thought in all forms – speech, expression, religion, and protest – was so important to the framers of the Constitution it became the first of our civil liberties in that document.  For Obama and his Marxist followers, the 1st Amendment is the most dangerous to their cause and, during the Covid Panic, the one they abrogated.  Because once the 1st Amendment is gone, so is America.

 

“Utter failure will attend any attempt in a commonwealth to force men to speak only as prescribed by the sovereign despite their different and opposing opinions … The most tyrannical government is one where the individual is denied the freedom to express and communicate to others what he thinks.”

                                                                                                Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677)
