The Religious Belief of All Revolutionaries Is the Same— Use Polemics and Philosophy First—Use Force and Terror If the Public Is Not Swayed
One thing the Left learned from Lenin, “once you start a revolution you cannot stop you must continue. The cardinal error in politics is to assume that one can stop and still win. No authority ever surrenders except by force.” This is where America stands. The Left thought they could use Trump-hatred to finally push their leftist agenda over the top. For years they used polemics, the demise of mores, ethics and culture to tear the threads of what held the Republic together. Now, they see their chance to commit the coup de grace—with raw power, fear and terror. The left uses criminals, anarchists and paid thugs—youths that enjoy destroying what others have built and earned. They get thrills from their power over hapless citizens who flee in terror, even seeing them from afar. Thus, the left thinks they can win and impose their vision and power on us for they believe, we, the effete middle class, will succumb and hide in our houses.
The people of Portland, Oregon have been warned not to enter the city proper. According to reports I received, business leaders and community leaders are afraid to protest the mayor’s war on the community. Businesses are boarded up. They may never open again in this communist stronghold. Today, Sunday August 30, 2020, more burning and looting has been reported.
The same goes for Seattle. Once the Emerald City, no one would call it that now. No one will ever write a song about San Francisco the way it is now. Oh, forgive me, there is one song. A parody, decrying Nancy Pelosi’s feces reeking, hell hole of needles and homeless drug addicts.
I make a prediction for the Socialist/Communist left. The terror you spread might have worked in other countries.
It will not work in America—Citizens have guns. And they buy more guns and ammunition every day. Now you know why the Left wants citizens disarmed.
I feel tremendous sadness writing these lines. For by now, I am a part of history. I have seen this and lived this before, and had hopes to die before it ever came to another uprising by those who call themselves Socialists. By the way, Hitler and the Fascists, too, were Socialists. Have you forgotten that Nazism is the short-form for Nationalsocialismus, National Socialism. Well, there you have it again. All power-hungry entities think the word Socialism sounds so good, the unwary will fall for it again.
