Defund Police Movement Part of the Fundamental Transformation

 

 

By Don Jans

At the heart of so many movements in the United States today is the call to centralize all power in the federal government. Yes, this is a critical difference between a society based on collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressivism, the Democrat party – all virtually the same) and a society based on individualism (philosophy on which our nation was founded). Collectivism seeks to control all aspects of society with all people dependent and accountable to the elite of the central government, while individualism stresses the importance of the self-reliant and responsible individual who strives to reach their dreams and aspirations.

A part of the control necessary in a collectivist society is that the state or elite be able to control the daily lives and activities of the individual citizen. This can only be done with federal officials and police who are responsible for smaller or local areas like counties and cities, being totally accountable to the central government and totally responsive to the demands of the central government.

The defund the police movement is an extension of the program to nationalize all law enforcement that was begun by Globalist and Communist, Comrade Obama. His unconstitutional and internal efforts to accomplish this goal were interrupted with the election of President Donald Trump, but the collectivist movement is very resourceful and has declared war, literally and figuratively, on our local police.

The Obama regime and its “Task Force on 21st Century Policing” unveiled an unconstitutional plot to impose federal “standards” on state and local police forces, with the goal to nationalize and federalize law enforcement. The plan outlined dozens of “recommendations” to be foisted on state and local law-enforcement agencies using federal tax dollars as bribes.

The program called for national standards for police a few months after United Nations boss Ban Ki Moon called for American police to obey “international standards.” The efforts to further nationalize and federalize law enforcement, were also in line with Obama’s campaign rhetoric about building a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military.  Such an effort corresponds to a Communist effort to nationalize American police forces that goes back decades.

Comrade Obama celebrated the scheme to bring law enforcement further under the control of the central government. He also argued that it must be done quickly. “I’m going to be asking Eric Holder and the Justice Department and his successor to go through all of these recommendations so that we can start implementing them,” Obama explained. “I know one area that’s going to be of great interest is whether we can expand the [DOJ Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS)] program that in the past has been very effective, continues to be effective, but is largely underfunded.”

These steps to exercise and take control over police departments should raise a red flag to anyone who understands the history of national police forces. The history behind efforts to nationalize police forces should spark alarm. It is worth recalling that Communist efforts to nationalize local police forces across the United States date back to at least the 1960s. Toward that end, communist agitators, along with their front groups and useful idiots, have long created problems or exploited existing ones to drum up hatred and violence against police. As we have noticed in recent anti-police marches, communist-made signs and slogans were visible everywhere. But it is hardly a new development.

It has long been a strategy of all collectivist sponsored movements that a crisis be created so the people will call upon the central government to solve the problem. The collectivist solution is always more power in the hands of the elite running the central government and more controls and restrictions on the people.

If only you supporters of these collectivist strategies would understand that once the United States government is under total collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, – all virtually the same) control, your rights and liberties will be suspended using the same force, draconian, and demonic methods that you are using to suspend my rights and liberties. You have been warned.

Don has spoken to numerous groups across the nation on the topic of who and what is the United States and who and what is collectivism. The collectivist movement has called for a transformation of the United States. What is critical for all to understand is what is the transformation; what are we now and into what will we be transformed.  

Don’s speaking approach is the same as his writing approach, and that is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness. 

Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom.
