I was poking around at one of my favorite political blogs “American Thinker,” and I saw a headline that literally made me giddy. It is, “Stop Calling Them Democrats. They’re Communists.” Is that a headline I can jump on board with? Heck yeah. If you’re a frequent reader over here at Wayne Dupree, you know that we always refer to these America-hating Dems as communists. Because that’s exactly what they are. And they’re not “fascists” either — a pet peeve of mine is when conservatives call Dems “fascists” or even “socialists.” No, it’s not the same. They are communists. Don’t water it down.
So, as soon as I saw that title, I knew the article would be a winner, and I wanted to share it with you. Steve Rose is the author of the piece, and he does a great and really clever job of explaining how Dems have morphed from the party of JFK into these unrecognizable radical, foam-at-the-mouth lunatics we see today. If JKF was miraculously brought back to life, and somebody showed him the Dem Party, he’d drop dead from shock. There’s literally no comparison to who they used to be. Even Manchin, a so-called “moderate” by today’s standards just voted for a disaster “climate” bill and 87K more IRS agents.
So, without further ado, here is a snippet from Mr. Rose’s article:
It’s time to stop calling them Democrats.
This is no longer the party of FDR, JFK, or even Bill Clinton, and it’s time to start calling a spade a spade.
Imagine this scenario:
You have a neighbor, Mr. Jones—a kind old man whose wife died years ago, who works in his small garden, wears the same old jacket all the time, and has a funny but genuine laugh.
One day, suddenly, Mr. Jones disappears.
Several days later, you notice some activity in his place—it looks like Mr. Jones—and you go to say hello. But suddenly, you realize this is a stranger. He looks like Mr. Jones, sounds a little like Mr. Jones, and acts in some ways like Mr. Jones. But it’s not him.
This person lives in Mr. Jones’ place, wears his clothes, works in the garden, and even has a strange imitation of his laugh. “Who are you?” you ask. He responds, “Why, I’m Mr. Jones, of course!”
But it’s not him.
This creepy scenario is what has taken place with the Democratic party.
One of the stated goals of communism, from the Congressional Record in 1963, was to take over one or both political parties from within.
In 1949, William Z. Foster, a chairman of the Communist Party USA, dedicated a book by writing “To My Great-Grandson Joseph Manley Kolko Who Will Live in a Communist United States.”
He seemed quite confident.
One of the many challenges real Americans now face is to start calling “Democrats” what they actually are. They’ll protest. But if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and acts like a duck, we need to call it a duck.
We’ve been conditioned to believe that communism is just a myth, that it isn’t real, or even if it is real, it only exists in faraway places like China, and anyone who mentions it is a conspiracist who deserves ridicule.
Tyrants don’t simply announce themselves openly and honestly. “Hi! I’m trying to become a tyrant, and I’d like to enslave you. Will you start obeying everything I say?” The serpent in the garden of Eden didn’t say, “Hi! I’m trying to turn you against the Almighty. Eat this, please.”
Instead, they make lofty, inspiring speeches. They promise free things. They appeal to our sense of hope, fairness, and justice. They claim to hold the solution to racial harmony, violence, and the literal death of the planet. They bribe the corrupt, seduce the gullible, and slander, disarm, and imprison everyone else.
Once they’re in power, the mask comes off. But by then, it’s too late.
This is just a small piece of his article, and I would encourage you to read all of it. He gets into some really good history on the Communist Party and how it pertains to today’s Dems. It’s fascinating stuff.
And his point is really spot-on. Calling Dems who and what they really are is important. And one reason why is because we’re in a “war of words” right now. The left has weaponized this PC culture, which is actually Social Marxism. It’s the backbone of their woke movement and their cancel culture. So, what they call “political correctness” which sounds so nice and friendly is actually communism. Know your enemy and call them out. Don’t let them have a pass.
Please, take a minute to read Mr. Rose’s entire piece. You can find it here.
