Democrats are 21st Century Bolsheviks. That is what they are, nothing more, nothing less. Their electoral strategy, indeed their entire philosophy rests on a bed of hate-fueled lies intended to strike fear into the hearts of voters. What do those lies say? Republican policies will kill millions. They will strip the elderly of medicare, throwing grandma off a cliff; they will fuel global warming, incite WW III, and on and on. They will literally threaten the world. Democrats are engaged in political terrorism.
Consider: Pennsylvania Democrat Senate candidate Bob Casey launched a campaign ad showing twin children with cancer, claiming his GOP opponent, Rep. Lou Baretta, would cause the death of such children by denying insurance for preexisting conditions. If that were true, wouldn’t you want to see Rep. Barletta behind bars? It puts him on par with pedophiles — or worse.
Baretta responded to Casey’s ad with an emotional video on Twitter, noting that his own toddler grandson, a twin, was suffering with cancer. “Bob Casey knew my 18 month old grandson, who is a twin, has cancer. I told him and his wife a month ago… to say that I would deny my own grandson healthcare might be the lowest thing I have ever experienced in my political career…”
At first, Casey refused to take down the ad.
As Rush Limbaugh pointed out on Monday, “it’s not insurance.” Obamacare set up a separate program for preexisting conditions because no insurer would offer such insurance. “You can’t set your house on fire, then call State Farm or whoever, and buy a homeowners policy that protects you against fire. They won’t sell it to you.”
But my favorite is this one. In a political ad, Virginia 10th congressional district Democratic candidate Dan Helmer said: “Our president is morally on par with a guy who planned the attack that killed nearly 3,000 civilians in just one day.”
President Trump is Osama bin Laden. Really!
Tell that to minorities enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in history. Tell that to coal miners, steel industry employees and others, all seeing an unprecedented resurgence in their industries. Tell that to those millions of of employees who received bonuses and tax cuts that Nancy Pelosi called “crumbs.” Tell that to Wall Street. Tell that to other world leaders who are snapping to attention for an unapologetic American president who leads from the front, not from behind.
In fact Democrats accuse the GOP of doing what they themselves do. For example Obamacare stripped $700 billion from Medicare to help pay for that massive white elephant, which saw insurance premiums skyrocket, and millions lose their insurance altogether, despite Obama’s claim that “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” Politifact awarded Obama the biggest lie of the year award for that statement.
In fact, Obamacare’s passage relied on deliberate, premeditated lies. As Jonathan Gruber, one of Obamacare’s primary architects revealed:
This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes… If you had a law which said healthy people are going to pay in — if you made it explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed, okay?… lack of transparency is a huge advantage. And basically, you know, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever. But basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.
It was funny to watch Democrats from President Obama on down walk back Gruber’s comments. Mumbling and fumbling in her typically addled way, Nancy Pelosi denied even knowing him. However, the Washington Post juxtaposed that statement next to an earlier one, where Pelosi explained how “Jonathan Gruber’s MIT analysis… [showed that] our bill takes down those costs…”
But for the uninitiated — which constitute a large proportion of the electorate, given the mass media’s current blackout on factual reporting — Democrat threats are enough to strike fear into their hearts, and when you add in the violent tactics of the Democrats’ ground army, Antifa, it makes a lot of people afraid to even acknowledge being republican.
So the Democrats’ electoral strategy can be summed up in two words: fear and hate: what all terrorists rely on, and what the Bolsheviks used to force their agenda on an unwilling Russian population that ultimately cost millions of lives. The Bolshies even had a name for it: the Red Terror.
Democrats are practicing a form of political and psychological terrorism. There is no factual content. The entire purpose of their campaigns is to motivate through fear. But Democrats believe this entirely justified.
What is the most salient feature of today’s Democrat? Rage.
Democrats raged at the Kavanaugh hearings. Democrats rage at President Trump. They rage at Republicans in restaurants, elevators and the street. Democrat political arsonists like Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Cory Booker and Maxine Waters rage at Republicans and urge confrontation and violence. Republicans have been attacked with switchblades, clubs and guns. Every time the GOP scores a victory Democrats rage. They behave like unglued lunatics, yet double down on their lies and blatant hypocrisy when called on it.
Their rage is not reality based. It is fantasy rage based on a fantasy utopian future they believe can be attained only if they control the levers of power. In their minds, anyone who opposes that agenda is guilty of genocide. Traditional values and morality, American constitutional principles, free market capitalism, nationalism and a strong defense all stand in the way of the Left’s fantasy utopian future.
For those who actually believe in that utopian future, i.e. the fanatic Democratic left base, we are actually threatening the human race, so the most outrageous behavior, including murder, is justified. And the longer they keep it up, the more able the spin doctors are to rationalize a plausible explanation.
For the greedy, self-serving Democrat establishment, it’s a great strategy. They care about power. Nothing else, and whatever works to obtain it is justified in their minds.
So they hate, they rage, they scream and shout, bully people and wreck property. Then they accuse us of what they are doing.
How will that play out if they actually obtain the absolute power they seek? The lunatic extreme Left base, constrained for the moment by what remains of the rule of law, will be unleashed. And those threats they have already made, to kill, torture, assassinate we “racists,” “bigots,” “Islamophobes,” “homophobes,” “imperialists,” “capitalists,” etc. will be carried out.
Do you want to be afraid? Base your fear on the reality of what we face: Democrats are today’s Bolsheviks, and if given the power they seek, they will be just as merciless.
People always ask me, “What can I do?” The very immediate, single answer is: win in November. Campaign for candidates, go door to door, become a poll watcher or judge, register voters, man phone banks. Offer rides to the polls for the elderly and others.
This could be the most important election in our history. Vote wisely this November, vote well, but vote.
