“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”~ Marcus Tillius Cicero (106 to 43 BC), Roman statesman, lawyer, scholar, and Academic Skeptic
One might assume the singular defining characteristic of the contemporary Democrat Party is its devotion to authoritarian collectivism, but one would be wrong. I separate their goals and objectives from their modus operandi (method of operation) because what they want is separate and apart from how they plan to achieve it. They do have a singular goal and objective – when all things are considered, the only goal and objective the Democrats have is total and absolute power, the ability and capability to use government tell you how to live according to their ever-changing ideas of how your life best serves them.
Authoritarian collectivism is a disposable concept, a means to end, the modus operandi of their will to power, but it merely is a plug and play accessory, the same as new versions of video games plug into the same console. I am more convinced than ever that their fecklessness and hypocrisy runs far deeper than anticipated, to the point that if authoritarian collectivism did not provide the possibility they could achieve total power, like the snake in the Garden of Eden, they would shed that skin and adopt a new method that better suits their quest.
My observation of their actions has led to the conclusion that the singular defining characteristic is their alliances with the enemies of our representative republic, the democratic processes upon which it is based and the Constitution that is the glue that holds us together.
A historical sampling of Democrat Party perfidy would include:
- During the Cold War, the Democrats allied themselves with the Soviet Union, so much so, Teddy Kennedy, a sitting US Senator, asked the Soviets for help to stop the reelection of Ronald Reagan in 1984. In 1983, Kennedy wrote the letter to Soviet General Secretary Yuri Andropov asking for the USSR’s help to defeat President Reagan.
- Throughout the 1980s, America saw Democrat support of Daniel Ortega and Nicaragua’s Soviet-aligned Sandinista regime grow, as the Sandinistas became the darlings of leftist Americans, left-wing American politicians and those around the world who sought to harmonize Christianity and Marxism through liberation theology.
- In the 90’s, the Democrat alliance with China flowered as the Clintons were caught up in a campaign finance scandal that featured Chinese money being funneled into the Clinton campaign coffers. Then Vice President Al Gore was also fingered from picking up bags of CCP cash from an event at a Buddhist temple. Democrats continued to build up China after the USSR collapsed on itself and satellite nations began to break away.
- In the 2000’s, after the shock of 9/11 wore off, the Democratic Party largely gave up on cultivating an ally to take down America from the outside and took a lesson from the radical Islamic terrorists who took down the Twin Towers. Since the fall of the Soviet Union left America as the singular world superpower, the Democrats gave up on the idea that America could be conquered from outside and shifted their focus to taking down America from inside as they shifted policy support to socialist, Marxist, radical Black Nationalist Groups, the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR operating within our borders.
But radical Islamic apologia is so yesterday for the Democrats. Making excuses and blaming America for terrorism is more difficult these days, especially after attacks continued across Europe and the muscular position taken by the Trump administration effectively ended the ISIS threat to America. Now the darlings of the Democrats are the anarchists of ANTIFA and the radical black separatists/nationalists of BLM (the Dems love the Persians, but that is because Iran wants to destroy an enemy common to Iran and the Democrat Party, that being Israel, the only functioning democracy in the Middle East).
The Democrats have long believed the old Arabic bromide that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. More than at any point in my lifetime, the Democrats are overtly supporting enemies of America through policy, funding, and legislative support. They are openly supporting racism by blacks against whites, are providing material support for the teaching of hatred of white people through Critical Race Theory in public schools and the military, direct race-based payments to black “farmers” that are not available to poor white farmers and have even attempted to structure vaccination efforts that are race based rather than vulnerability based – all in the name of “equity” and funded by taxes collected from you.
They have conscripted an army of useful idiots and fellow travelers who are willfully ignorant of their role in their own destruction. Democrats plan to ride the scorpion across the river.
The locus of power within the Democrat Party is made up of old white men, the very group of people they alleged to hate and want to eliminate. There is only one reason that they are calling down Hell upon themselves – they expect to be the sole survivors of the cataclysm. They believe they will continue to control the radical revolutionary forces after the walls fall. Kings and Queens of smoking piles of rubble – but whether they can survive is the real question. After all, the true lesson of the Arabic parable of the frog and scorpion is that the scorpion will always sting – it is the scorpion’s nature.
Allying with your enemies is what happens when self-hatred, delusion and cynicism combine with a lust for power in a political party.
