(TNS) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was in Iowa Friday night campaigning on behalf of Sen. Bernie Sanders, where she used inflammatory, divisive language to describe the central theme of his campaign.
“Who here is ready for the revolution?” she asked the crowd of about 2,700, according to local reports — many of whom were actually from nearby Nebraska. “I know I sure am.”
Let’s put aside the fact for a moment that this anti-Semite is backing a Jewish candidate for president not because she’s had a change of heart. She’s a stone bigot who hates Israel and Jews, as is evident by her past actions and statements. And she’s in good company in the Garbage Party, where anti-Semitism seems to be a prerequisite (you Jewish Democratic voters out there, wise up).
We know why she is: ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend.’ She backs Bernie because Bernie is the real closet Communist running for the Democratic Party nomination. The others — Warren, Biden, Harris — are socialists…’Commie lite,’ if you will.
But it’s her rhetoric that caught our attention — all this talk of “revolution” — because it’s the language of the Marxist-Leninists, the precursors to Soviet Communism.
The movement’s founder, Vladimir Lenin, is author of the tome, “The State and Revolution,” written in 1917.
“State and Revolution” (1917) describes the role of the State in society, the necessity of proletarian revolution, and the theoretic inadequacies of social democracy in achieving revolution. It describes the inherent nature of the State as a tool for class oppression, a creation born of one social class’s desire to control all other social classes.
Whether a dictatorship or a democracy, the State remains in the control of the ruling class. Even in a democratic capitalist republic, the ruling class will never willingly relinquish political power, maintaining it via various strategies. Hence, according to this view, communist revolution is the sole remedy for the abolition of the state.
“The abolition of the state.” “Revolution.” Indeed, perpetual revolution in order to achieve political objectives. And once those objectives are achieved, then “the State” — that is, the ruling class, the government — becomes an iron-fisted entity enforcing its will among the people by force when necessary.
Communism/Marxism/Leninism is, therefore, the antithesis of the republic our founders established, where we the people choose our representatives who govern rather than ‘rule’ over us. And what’s more, they governor at our pleasure.
It’s called “individual freedom,” and the Democrat Marxist Left hates it because individual freedom and liberty prevents them from implementing their agenda.
Hence, the need for “revolution.”
AOC, Sanders, Democrats in general — they all talk like this.
In September at a campaign rally, Sanders called for “political revolution.”
He said the same thing at a Democratic Party fundraiser in July 2015 when he was seeking the 2016 Democratic nomination.
He said it in March of this year.
He has said it so often even CNN’s Jake Tapper has asked him if it’s too much…if it incites violence.
Of course, it does. That’s the point of Leftist Marxist/Leninist/Communist ‘political revolution.’
And these people know it. That’s why they use the term, the rhetoric they use. They know exactly what they’re saying and what they are advocating.
You know who doesn’t know? The sheep who bleat in approval at their rallies. Like sheep in those other Communist/Marxist/Leninist societies around the world whose ancestors drank the serum of “equality” and “fairness” in exchange for their individual liberty and freedom, far too many Americans are willing to do the same thing.
They allow Sanders the multi-millionaire, who honeymooned in Moscow back in the day, to parade before then calling for “revolution!” while complaining about the “1 percenters” — like him. And the irony never dawns on them.
The Democrat Left will use our democracy and small “r” republican institutions to gain power if they can. If they can’t, then they’ll try to take it at some point.
Because that’s just how Communists and Marxists operate.
