Don Surber has a nice post today that conjures up the slogans of totalitarianisms past: One People, One Nation, One Leader. That, of course, Hitler's Nazi slogan: Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuehrer! For my title I substituted "Party" for "Nation" as befits a globalist part of the Left--the Dems. Surber's post addresses Dem attempts to delegitimate all opposition in our two party system, reducing it to a One Party system by labeling non-Dems with the "T" word:
Here's how he begins:
Abe Lincoln was the first Republican president. A Democrat assassinated him. Now Democrats and Fake Republicans are using Lincoln's name to assassinate the Republican Party.
The Lincoln Project recruited and hired Joe Trippi, a longtime Democrat activist, to derail Republican efforts to win back Congress next year. His conservative credits include Ted Kennedy's 1980 presidential bid and John Edwards in 2008.
Trippi wrote in USA Today, "There are no longer two healthy parties in America. The catastrophic mistake for our nation is to continue to see the fight as Democrats vs. Republicans, left vs. right. We are at war with an authoritarian movement fueled by former President Donald Trump. It includes many of the 147 Republicans who signed on to treason with their Jan. 6 votes objecting to Joe Biden's win, and it has grown since then."
Trippi is calling for One People, One Nation, One Leader!
"Every American, every corporation, the news media and the social platforms need to understand that there are no longer two functioning political parties in our country. Straddling between them is failing to understand our circumstances and the threat of an authoritarian movement that seeks to take power by any means. It’s time for all Americans to join this fight. Not one party over another. But all Americans against an authoritarian movement and its poison until it dies and another generation of Americans ensures that our democracy lives."
What Trippi is calling for is an authoritarian government to coerce Americans into having but one political party with no opposition.
There's more to this than just the false charge of treason--that type of name calling is a tactic within a larger overall strategy. Trippi is phrasing his call to action in pretty overtly Marxist-Leninist terms, although the Fascist element of Corporatism is also evident.
Consider these examples of typical Bolshevik strategic thinking:
In the context of the theory of Leninist revolutionary struggle, vanguardism is a strategy whereby the most class-conscious and politically advanced sections of the proletariat or working class, described as the revolutionary vanguard, form organizations in order to draw larger sections of the working class towards revolutionary politics and serve as manifestations of proletarian political power against the bourgeois.
And, yes, Neocons largely came from a Trotskyite background, and they are the ones behind the "Lincoln Project". It's a typical Bolshevik strategy.
Read that brief passage again. It's easy to substitute "Dem" for "class-conscious and politically advanced" and "GOP" for "Bourgeois". The idea is to lure useful idiots into accepting the social-political leadership of the Bolshevists and their party through a variety of front organizations, each org tailored to attract specific social groups. All united under Bolshevist leadership against any effective opposition.
Trotsky harps on the same theme:
the development of the revolution precisely consists of this, that the relationship of forces keeps incessantly and rapidly changing under the impact of the changes in the consciousness of the proletariat, the attraction of backward layers to the advanced, the growing assurance of the class in its own strength. The vital mainspring in this process is the party, just as the vital mainspring in the mechanism of the party is its leadership. The role and the responsibility of the leadership in a revolutionary epoch is colossal.
Or consider this:
The communist party is the organizational and political lever which the most advanced section of the working class uses to direct the entire mass of the proletariat and the semi-proletariat along the right road. ...
One implication of the vanguard of the proletariat was settled the party was to be the sole tolerated spokesman of the proletariat ...
Trippi very obviously sees the role of the Dem party in terms of Bolshevik "vanguardism". This is what we're up against. All public issues are co-opted by the Party in this revolutionary struggle--even, as an historical first, a disease. It's an extension of the twelfth of Alinsky's Rules for Radicals on how to demonize any and all opposition:
RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)
The anti- and never- Trumpers play right into this.
