“…American politics has returned to its combative, partisan, divisive default mode. In the 1790s, Americans were divided over a world-wide war between commercial Britain and revolutionary France. Political strife was bitter. In the antebellum years, Americans were deeply split over issues from the Bank of the United States to slavery in the territories. For three generations after the Civil War, Americans North and South lived almost entirely apart from each other.
The Midcentury Moment emerged as the result of three unexpected developments, two of them unwelcome—depression, war, postwar prosperity—and was communicated through the language of an unusually vivid and unusually universal popular culture. Absent these things—and it’s hard to see how they could return—our politicians aren’t likely to all get along.”
I think that the acrimony and division will only increase as the “progressives” seek to push their advantage. Rather than unity, it is clear that they want domination. Take the petition to arrest the Republican congressional leadership for “sedition” for example – these folks are telegraphing how they really feel – this is not humor or sarcasm – and what they would do if they had total power. This is not a feeling of right wing paranoia, it is real and they WILL act on it given the opportunity. I have no doubt that there are people who think that I should have my guns taken from me and if I didn’t willingly give them up, they would take them by force and incarcerate me for resisting – and I have never committed a crime in my life.
These folks are revolutionary Marxists and are led by a Marxist revolutionary, Barack Obama.
There will be those who say that statement is crazy, that Obama isn’t but that is because they base their comparisons and contrasts to the baseline of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and/or the Great Leap Forward of Mao in China. That frame of reference is wrong – before those “revolutions”, neither of those countries had the tradition of individual freedom that the USA has.
If you want to see what Obama is and what makes Marxists of the contemporary “progressive” Democrats, look to the Declaration of Independence and the zero point. This is the anchor point to understand just how cultural Marxism has permeated political and social discourse and brought us to the tipping point we are living today. The fact that New York is likely to have a communist radical Sandinista supporter as a mayor is proof enough.
