Having watched my Alma Mater, Auburn University, win the annual rivalry game against the University of Alabama I am a content person and all is right in the world. However, a thought regarding socialist Democrats in the U.S. has entered my mind and is putting somewhat a damper on the victory tonight.
Across the country many rivalry football games were held where one team is the winner and the loser will have to endure a year of catching flak from the winners. Next week in some middle or high school student of the winning team will see another student of the losing team wearing a collegiate athletic shirt or jacket. More than likely the winning student will repeat some derogatory phrase said by mom or dad regarding the losing team to the losing team student. Thus creating a brouhaha sending both students to the principal’s office and parents will be called to the school.
One parent will be upset that little Johnny was picking on their little Ricky and has hurt little Ricky’s feelings. That little Ricky needs to have the rest of the school term off to get rehabilitation and is unable to successfully complete any administered tests or exams. Little Johnny needs to be suspended indefinitely and undergo a review by the local DHR regarding the possible abnormal household where little Johnny learned such hateful and aggressive language. Sad reality about this situation is that most school systems in this country are controlled by socialist Democrats and will cave into the demands by little Ricky’s mom. The local school board will construct a policy prohibiting non-school related athletic shirts from being worn so not to create a hostile learning environment.
Sports are naturally competitive; athletes strive to achieve the best skills and to score the most runs, points, etc. Sports are basically the antithesis of the Left and principles of the Socialist Democrats in this country. Sports teach kids and people to achieve greatness and leftist, Socialists Democrats strive to destroy any institution that promotes such teachings in order to promote mediocrity and establish everyone as equal regardless of ability. There’s nothing Democrats hate worse than competition and/or free speech…just ask Rush Limbaugh, Milo Yiannopoulos, Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter or the police and law enforcement of Chicago. The Leftist, Socialist Democrats’ end game is to destroy all institutions promoting principles of Western Civilization and impose Marxist, socialist policies throughout the World. Racism, inequality, poverty, religion and (insert next cause) are hijacked as the vehicle by which they will use to achieve the movement’s end game. This sinister movement will presented in a series by historical events (absent personal opinion or subjectivity) leading up to the present.
A history flashback first spotlights the efforts of Reconstruction following the Civil War. Reconstruction blatantly sought to impose one form of society (the North) on another form of society (the South). The Southern people were beaten into submission by Union armies through the wanton destruction of public/private property, lives, sustenance and commission of rape all against the norms of any conventions of war. Google “The Battle of Athens (Alabama)”, “Sherman’s March to the Sea” and General Philip Sheridan’s despoiling of the Shenandoah Valley. Your search will turn up a dramatic different history of events rather than the glorified rendition contained in grade school and college textbooks.
The next flashback spotlights the New Deal programs proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1934 FDR said, “There is a much bigger situation behind the Tennessee Valley Authority…we are conducting a social experiment…we are going to come to a shack on the side of the mountain where there is a white man…who, with his family of children, is completely uneducated…and is progenitor of a large line of children for many generations to come…we are going to try to bring him some of the things he needs, like schools, electric lights and so on.” (Source: TVA and The Dispossessed: The Resettlement of Population in The Norris Dam Area) Ironically missing is any mention of the welfare of the “women of the hills”. Was this a war on women? Another New Deal related program in Greenhills, OH in the 1930s where a “planned community” with restrictions was constructed by the federal government. Restrictions, what? Government officials interviewed people (American citizens) to determine their moral character and make sure they would maintain the property. Sounds alot like vetting. But I digress. Furthermore they were required to have a steady job that would pay today’s equivalent of $16,000-$40,000 a year. Only white families were accepted, though that was in an era when segregation was common. (A quote from the website…not personal characterization.) Google it! Last time I checked Ohio was part of the Union fighting the Confederacy.
The next flashback spotlights the Civil Rights era of the 1950s-1960s. No effort is intended to portray civil rights era as a vehicle hijacked to further their end game. It is only to ask the question “Why were monuments/plaques and flags not targeted for removal?” This era can be said to be (with the exclusion of the KKK and supremacists) the purest and most peaceful push for equality in the history of this country. Again the South maintained its belief in Jeffersonian democracy. But the movement later hijacked civil rights in the name of social justice turning to violence to pursue their end game.
The first salvo (change of tactics) spotlights Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground. For those not familiar with the Weather Underground I beg you to Google and research the violent acts and bombings by the group and its leaders against (inside) this country. The list of acts and bombings of public buildings are too long to paraphrase. Barack Obama’s Illinois state senatorial campaign was launched at the home of Bill Ayers.
The next salvo became the removal of the flag of the Army of Northern Virginia mischaracterized as the flag of the Confederacy. Again I beg you to Google the images of each flag to see the distinct difference. That being said, the issue of the “Confederate Battle Flag” was touted as a symbol of racism and hatred that must be taken down from public display. Any dissent that defended the flag and constitutional principles of the Confederacy brought about abusive branding of such dissent as bigots, racist, evil, unchristian, supremacist, Nazi and (insert the latest slander engineered by the left).
The next salvo became the attacks on religion and removal of the Pledge of Allegiance from schools and society. “If people are to know and understand the real world, they must give up superstitious beliefs because they have a narcotic effect on the mind.” – Karl Max. The Nazis, Bolsheviks (communists) and Islamists (ISIS) destroyed by force all forms of culture (constitutions, books, statutes, art, religion, customs, etc.) of the German, Russian and Arabic people to impose their Marxists, fascist and extreme Islamic ideologies. Sound familiar? According to Marx’s thinking the feeling of pride related to patriotism must be a narcotic effect on the mind.
The next salvo is the passage and enactment of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) by the shining example of the most democratically elected government in history. Aside from the humanitarian aspect of expanding healthcare, the act forced a country of free people to purchase a product to avoid punishment by monetary penalty or tax. Any dissent against the act has been termed racist, hostility toward the poor, war on women, children and the elderly…pushing grandma off the cliff! The act goes beyond providing healthcare by inquiring whether one owns a firearm in spite of the constitutional right afforded by the Second Amendment in the Constitution. A friend that is a doctor informed that there is a provision/code to classify an injury as being caused by a jet ski and/or wave runner. Why does the doctor need to know that fact? It goes to the end game of oh…jet skis cause too many injuries now we have to regulate or ban them. Tell someone they can’t buy much less ride their jet ski on the Fourth of July because it is dangerous for them. Maybe if they modify a bicycle helmet and call it a jet ski helmet it will be okay. If you can’t get hurt by a jet ski I guess you have the choice to go jump out of an airplane for a thrill…until they ban that!
