Who of us my age can forget the indelible image of Nikita Kruschev (Premier of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964) standing before the United Nations General Assembly in October 1960, banging his shoe on the podium and on another occasion, stating “We Will Bury You?”
Confronted about the claim, he reportedly said, "I once got in trouble for saying, 'We will bury you'. Of course, we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you.” The claim was taken from a popular Marxist saying of, "The proletariat is the undertaker of capitalism." He went on to explain that socialism would replace capitalism.
An ominous and portentous statement, and given what is seen throughout America today, prophetic!
The Democrat party advocating socialism, the system favored by the now defunct Soviet Union, is no secret. Of course, they rarely admit it, hiding behind terms like “liberal,” “progressive,” “freethinker,” “reformer,” “leftist” and I’m sure a few others. But, it is socialism nonetheless they favor. That socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried is of little consequence, Democrats apparently thinking they can do it better and make it work.
Just prior to his handing the office of president over to Ronald Reagan, then president Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, awarded the Medal of Freedom to Roger Baldwin. Until about 1940, Baldwin, a life long pacifist, was a member of the Communist party in America. In 1927, Baldwin traveled to the Soviet Union and wrote the book, “Liberty Under the Soviets” An attorney, Baldwin formed a group that played a key role in the infamous 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial. Becoming disillusioned with Soviet Communism, Baldwin left the Communist party and wrote another book, “The New Slavery,” condemning the Communist Police State, but apparently retained his left-winged socialist views that we still see today in the group he founded, the American Civil Liberties Union.
Under the guise of “protecting Americans Civil Liberties,” the ACLU has had prayer banned in schools, denied displays of the 10 Commandments in Court Houses, relentlessly attacked the Boy Scouts of America due to their policy of denying Gay Males to be Scout Leaders over young boys, fought diligently to remove a memorial to War Veterans because it was shaped like a Christian Cross, defended members of the Pedophile group, NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association), over their “first amendment right of free speech” to advocate pedophilia and so many more cases that in truth have undermined the very moral fabric Traditional America was founded on.
In all too many cases, they are also seen as the legal arm of the Democrat party, having legislation that citizens advocated and voted for over-turned by courts.
In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of an unmarried Dallas, Texas woman who wanted to abort the child she was carrying in 1970 in what has become known as Roe vs. Wade, effectively legalizing abortions nationwide, with not one person ever voting on this major legislation that came from the bench. Since then, millions of children were not born as abortion came to be seen as an easy birth control method of just ending the pregnancy if you wished, often under pressure from left-winged groups. The Democrat party fights tooth and nail to retain “a woman’s right to choice,” with no regard to any rights of the human being growing in their womb.
All through the 1990’s, we saw scandal after scandal and cover-ups excused with the then Clinton administration, culminating in the infamous perjury impeachment of president B.J. Clinton in the House of Representatives. The Senate did agree and voted against impeachment.
Democrats and supporters rallied around the president’s misconduct, only to later condemn any sexual acts of Republican politicians, especially if they happened to be Gay.
Our children are required to attend school. Most attend Public Schools where many teachers are educated in the socialist liberal mindset and pass that on to our children. Many parents have complained, to no avail, that their children are taught social concepts against the parent’s own values and religion. Homosexuality is taught as just an “alternative lifestyle.” Some have even gone so far as to demonize and frighten children because their parent’s may feed them meat with dinner.
The three ‘R’s of old time teaching seem to have taken a back seat to modern teaching methods such as Outcome-Based Education. Discipline your child, especially if by spanking, legal in most states by their State Constitution, and you can expect many teachers to report you to Child Protective Services, who will interfere with your Parental Rights or take your children until such time as one of their ‘case-workers’ decides you are now an appropriate parent for raising your child the way the State sees fit.
Should your under-aged daughter become pregnant because the condom the school provided her failed, you may not be entitled to know that she has left campus, with the aid of the school authorities, for an abortion. That is considered “confidential” and parents are not entitled to such “confidential” information.
In the 2000 Presidential election, we all witnessed a major flap in the State of Florida as a very close vote was recounted, recounted, recounted and efforts were made by Democrat candidate, Al Gore Jr. to block absentee ballots of American Service-members serving overseas. As Florida Law required the election to be certified by a certain date, Democrats attempted have the law changed, in the middle of the recounts, to favor the continuance of the recounts until the Democrat won, in the three heavily Democrat counties subject to the recounts.
Clearly circumventing established law, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the Florida Supreme Court, upholding the election laws.
What I find most ironic about this case and attempt to circumvent the law, are cries of Republican “culture of corruption” coming from those who are given a pass for their own corruption. Republican ‘Duke’ Cunningham is rightfully cooling his heels in jail for his taking bribes, while Democrats Jack Murtha and William Jefferson are still sitting in Congress after being taped accepting bribes.
Showing much hypocrisy is comments coming from Democrats that today successfully caused the resignation of embattled Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, the first ever Hispanic Attorney General. Most hypocritical of the Democrats was Senator Ted Kennedy, who himself caused the death of a young lady in 1969 and circumvented many laws, basically getting a minor slap on the wrist, as he said today, "He has exhibited a lack of candor with Congress and the American people and a disdain for the rule of law and our constitutional system. I strongly urge President Bush to nominate a new attorney general who will respect our laws and restore the integrity of the office."
Shouldn’t the Senator and his family first “respect our laws” before recommending others to?
We have Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein calling for abolishing Electoral College and determining who wins presidential elections based solely by popular votes, which would end up having our president selected by the heaviest populated states, shutting less populated states out of the process.
We have recommendations and proposals of implementing “hate speech laws,” limiting freedom of speech
We have calls for reinstatement of the “Fairness Doctrine,” but only where it affects Right-winged Talk Radio, denying freedom of speech and expression by those of us not of the liberal mindset.
We hear promises of “Universal Healthcare,” socialized medicine in disguise.
Taxes are forever being raised under Democrat leadership, restricting our ability to spend what we earn as we see fit. Most ridiculous of these is the so-called “sin taxes.” Currently, there is a proposal to raise tobacco taxes to provide needed medical care to children of the “working class poor.” What they hide from the public is that the very people they claim to be helping are the ones most likely to be purchasing tobacco products, taking away what they claim they are providing!
The Second Amendment to our Constitution guarantees us the “right to bear arms,” own guns. For decades, Democrats have pulled every slick trick you can imagine to deny us that right and take guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. If they can’t get the guns, they go after the ammunition, making our guns ineffective when they go for their final push at taking over the country completely and imposing Soviet style Socialism upon us.
Political Correctness, entitlement programs, school indoctrination instead of education and continual cries from the Socialist elite Democrats that they and they alone care about people and can solve normal everyday troubles, while they sit back and just take from the working class have numbed our “working class”. Being numbed, the working class too often buys the prevarications of the socialist Democrat party and keeps them in power, keeping them in the never-ending vicious cycle of accepting what the Socialist Democrats say they are entitled to.
Centuries ago, men walked the earth who made even more prophetic statements than those of Soviet Premier Kruschev. Once said was, “All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.” (Ecclesiastes 8:9)
Sadly, if the Socialist Elites succeed in their “coup d'état,” even those words may be one day banned as “hate speech.”
