Since I was about 12, I have known that the communist left was dedicated to replacing America with a collectivist tyranny. I remember Khrushchev pounding his shoe on the table at the United Nations and threatening "We will bury you!" I became a news junkie at 13, scouring the San Jose Mercury News each morning for the latest Cold War developments.
I never could understand it. How could anyone believe in a totalitarian tyranny that destroys freedom, starves millions and executes millions more? Apparently, a lot of people do -- or at least, believe in their version of it. The long march through the institutions was completed some time ago, and both academia and media have a near monopoly on the transmission of biased news, cultural demolition and the ability to affect public attitudes. The "closing of the American mind" is just about complete. Moonbattery blog has an article today called "Brainwashing Works." The author, Dave Blount, points to a sign in NYC's Penn Station where a graffiti artist has penned "Kill All Republicans!" This sentiment is not an isolated occurrence. Twitchy.com reports daily the most vile bile from the left, the unhinged hatred, the desire for violence against Republicans and conservatives. The Democrat Media Complex has created a vast swath of human botnets, which can be set off in mass to launch denial-of-liberty attacks on any and all who oppose the New Progressive Order. Like computer botnets, the human variety is programmed and programmable and act in concert, unhindered by scruples or actual thought.
Lately swarms of human maggots on Twitter have tweeted their joy at the death of General Norman Schwarzkopf yesterday, expressing hope that he died painfully and is now burning in Hell. They have said similar things about former President George H.W. Bush, who is in the hospital with a serious illness, hoping that he dies "in agony." I do not recognize this leftist human scum as fellow citizens, but as traitors, agents of hostile foreign powers and ideologies. With the election of one of their own to the presidency, they are now emboldened to finish off the Republic, and as Blount notes at Moonbattery, are now in a rush to disarm us. A generation ago, Diane Feinstein's proposed gun control bill (to photograph and fingerprint all gun owners) would have resulted in widespread outcry and alarm. A day or so after its announcement, there is hardly a peep from the populace.
