History repeats

I was listening to "I Was A Communist For The FBI" on a classic XM radio station this morning and was struck by how similar the actions and goals of the commies of the 1950's are to the actions of the libs of 2016. Their ultimate goal was stated as being the destruction of the USA Constitution, including the 2A and the other amendments in the BOR. The people they used to achieve their goals were the same as those used now such as students, unions, minorities, the poor, and criminals. They had no problem with telling any lie that would advance their agenda. They had the backing of people and organizations with almost unlimited money. They cared nothing for the individual person.

There is a big difference, however, between now and then. They were considered to be the enemy back then, but now they are viewed by many as being socially and politically acceptable and may very well put another one of their own in the White House.

Nikita does, indeed, smile.

Exactly why the Dems must be defeated on Election Day.

Including "No" to Crooked Hillary Clinton.

History does indeed repeat itself. The reason for that, in our case anyway, is that history is no longer taught in schools. That's by design. Instead, students receive a steady diet of Left-inspired, revisionist, and essentially anti-American, drivel. Nothing will improve until we start taking back education. The consequences of not doing so are dire for future generations. Defeating what's-her-face alone, if we can even manage that, will only delay the inevitable unless we get on the ball.

The magic elixir for this disease we're currently afflicted with is education, instilling in our children a love for this nation and for its founding principles - a love for freedom, if you will, not a longing for dependency. That's tough task at this point in our history.

The several groups that scream the loudest about the horrors of slavery in the past are the ones that scream the loudest for another form of slavery in the present and future.

Many parts of the NEA mission statement mirror the Communist Manifesto.

Actually, the biggest difference is that, back then most within our own government were fighting against the communists. Now, much of our own government ARE the communists. They just don't call themselves that anymore.

It's not so much that it is repeating itself. But, rather, it is merely coming out of the shadows. There have always been those that worship at the altar of communism. It's just that they've been very successful in recent years selling it to the mainstream. I guess you have to give them credit for their persistence and marketing skills.

Spot-on. Wish that I had said it.

The left wing media spent 40 years re-writing history and making Joseph McCarthy out to be the bad guy when history has shown him to be 100% right. With Mao Christmas tree ornaments in the Whitehouse, public unions, and open communist in the government and as presidential advisors, he must be rolling over in his grave.

Probably spinning at high speed.

I had a nice career in the classified (AKA 'black) world doing thing we do not do in places we are not.

Traveled a large portion of the world.

Visited places I was never openly at.
