I have written a number of articles about the Democrats and just touched the surface of what the Democrats have become over decades of time. Today, the Democrats are aligned with the Socialists and Communists in our nation that wish to get rid of our Constitution and replace it with something more aligned to a Communist ideology. We can clearly make this statement based upon facts few will ever see or even recognize.
The first person I will show briefly is the man who directs all the Democratic movement in the US Senate. This man hates the United States and is none other than Chuck Schumer. Below I show his ties to the Communist Party, along with Socialism.
“In 1998 Schumer was elected to the U.S. Senate. His candidacy was backed by the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, a Communist Party USA splinter group. In subsequent years, Schumer also received support from the Working Families Party.
* In 1997 Schumer co-sponsored Congressman Matthew Martinez’s Job Creation and Infrastructure Restoration Act, which proposed to use $250 billion in federal funds for the establishment of union-wage jobs rebuilding infrastructure (e.g., schools, hospitals, libraries, public transportation, highways, and parks). Martinez had previously introduced this bill in 1995 at the request of the Los Angeles Labor Coalition for Public Works Jobs, whose leaders were all supporters or members of the Communist Party USA.
Just click on the links to see what these groups are all about. If the Socialist and Communist Parties have a friend in the Senate like Schumer, we are not watching our backs. We should never have any person writing our laws with Socialist and Communist ideologies. This is the “New” Democratic Party that is slowly showing that the old Democratic Party is near death and it has become a party representing these ideologies.
Now, let’s move to the top Democrat in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.
TIES TO THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF AMERICA
On November 11 1995, Pelosi and fellow Democratic Congressman Ron Dellums were the keynote speakers at a public hearing on jobs and economic insecurity in San Francisco. The event was co-sponsored by the San Francisco Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the Full Employment Coalition.
PUBLIC PRAISE FOR HARDLINE COMMUNISTS
In 2001, on the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the late Harry Bridges (1901-90)—a former leader of the International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union who was later (in 1992) exposed as having been a longtime member of the Communist Party USA‘s Central Committee—Pelosi honored Bridges as a man who was “beloved by the workers of this Nation, and recognized as one of the most important labor leaders in the world.” Bridges’ International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union, Pelosi added, was “the most progressive union of the time.” As scholar Joshua Muavichik explains, Bridges had been directly approved for his Central Committee post by the Kremlin: “This means, plain and simple, that he had devoted his life to the service of the Soviet Union and its ruler, Joseph Stalin, one of the three greatest mass murderers of all time.” Pelosi’s praise of Bridges, Muravchik adds, does not mean that Pelosi was ever a Communist, but it did illustrate “Pelosi’s wretched record in judging who are history’s good guys and who are its bad.”
In 2001 as well, Pelosi also praised another prominent Bay Area socialist, Vivian Hallinan—whose husband, Vincent Hallinan, had co-founded the National Lawyers Guild‘s San Francisco chapter and had run for U.S. president in 1952 on the Progressive Party (which was a Communist Party front) ticket—as “a role model for many of us” and a “pioneer” in “a wide range of progressive causes.” In Pelosi’s view, “Vivian was devoted intellectually and passionately to many causes, well before they became popularly embraced.” Accuracy In Media’s Cliff Kincaidnotes that “these causes included support for communists in Central America during the 1980s, when Soviet- and Cuban-backed forces were subverting Central America through violence and terrorism and fighting for control of the region.” Indeed, Pelosi’s tribute specifically lauded Mrs. Hallinan for having: (a) “opposed U.S. policy in Central America” under President Reagan; (b) “befriended Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua’s [Communist] Sandinista leader”; and (c) met with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. The Hallinan family, it should be noted, was at one time under scrutiny by the California Senate Fact-finding Subcommittee on Un-American Activities for its efforts in promoting pro-Soviet propaganda.
GUEST SPEAKER AT “TAKE BACK AMERICA” CONFERENCES
PELOSI APPOINTS A SENIOR POLICY ANALYST OF GEORGE SOROS
All of the above show direct links to both the Socialist Party and the Communist Party. Once again, we should never allow anyone with connections like this to our enemies to be in any position within our government.
However, take a look at the last item that shows her direct link to the man who is an enemy of the United States, George Soros.
How in the world did we allow this lady to become anything other than dog catcher? Our nation has the people in place to ensure a Socialist government, but President Trump is not what they want. Socialists, disguised as Democrats, were hoping to have Hillary in office to continue the move towards a pure Socialist government.
Take a look at what the Democratic Party stood for, voted for or against and what the Democratic Party has been. Remember, it seems the Democratic Party today supports the poor and hates slavery, but it was the Democrats that voted against freeing the slaves and against giving them equal rights.
Take a look at this history from Discover the Networks.
Jeffrey Lord, a contributing editor to The American Spectator and a former aide to Jack Kemp and Ronald Reagan, has chronicled the following vital facts about the Democratic Party of 1800 through the 1960s:
Seven Democrat presidents owned slaves between 1800 and 1861.
Between 1840 and 1860, there were six Democratic Party platformssupporting slavery.
From 1868-1948, there were 20 Democratic Party platforms that either openly supported segregation or were silent on the subject.
The infamously racist “Jim Crow laws” of the post-Civil War era — mandating segregation in virtually all public settings throughout the South — were passed enthusiastically by Democrats.
In the post-Civil War era, the Democratic Party and the Ku Klux Klan had a very close relationship. Columbia University historian Eric Foner writes that the Klan became “a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” And according to University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease, the Klan served as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”
Democrats opposed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The 13th banned slavery. The 14th effectively overturned the 1857 Dred Scott decision (made by Democratic pro-slavery Supreme Court justices) by guaranteeing due process and equal protection to former slaves. And the 15th gave black Americans the right to vote.
Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which was passed by a Republican Congress over the veto of President Andrew Johnson, who had been a Democrat before joining Abraham Lincoln’s Republican ticket in 1864. The law gave blacks with the right to own private property, sign contracts, file lawsuits, and serve as witnesses in a legal proceeding.
Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1875, which was passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by Republican President Ulysses S. Grant. The law prohibited racial discrimination in public places and public accommodations.
The Democratic Party’s 1904 platform used the term “Sectional and Racial Agitation” to condemn the Republican Party’s protests against segregation and against the denial of voting rights to blacks. This “agitation,” said the Democratic platform, sought to “revive the dead and hateful race and sectional animosities in any part of our common country,” which in turn would bring “confusion, distraction of business, and the reopening of wounds now happily healed.”
Between 1908 and 1920, there were 4 Democratic platforms that were silent on the issues of blacks, segregation, lynching, and voting rights. By contrast, the Republican platforms of those years specifically addressed “Rights of the Negro” (1908), opposed lynching (in 1912, 1920, 1924, 1928), and (with the advent of the New Deal) the dangers of turning blacks into “wards of the state.”
At the direction of Democratic President Woodrow Wilson in 1913, Democrats segregated the federal government.
The Democratic Convention of 1924, held in New York’s Madison Square Garden, has been dubbed by historians as the “Klanbake.” Hundreds of the delegates present were members of the Ku Klux Klan, which was so powerful that a plank condemning Klan violence was unwaveringly rejected. To celebrate, some 10,000 hooded Klansmen staged a massive rally complete with burning crosses and calls for violence against blacks and Catholics.
Democrats created the Federal Reserve Board, passed labor and child welfare laws, and created Social Security with Woodrow Wilson’s New Freedom and FDR’s New Deal. But these programs were created as the result of an agreement to ignore segregation and the lynching of blacks.
Thousands of Democratic local officials, state legislators, state governors, U.S. congressmen, and U.S. senators were elected as supporters of slavery and then segregation between 1800 and 1965.
In return for election support, three post-Civil War Democratic presidents — Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt — agreed to leave the issues of segregation and lynching unaddressed.
Three-fourths of the opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Bill in the U.S. House of Representatives came from Democrats, as did four-fifths of the opposition in the Senate. That opposition included such figures as future Democratic Senate leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia (a former Klan member) and Tennessee Senator Albert Gore Sr., father of Al Gore.
The Birmingham, Alabama Public Safety Commissioner Bull Connor — who infamously unleashed dogs and fire hoses on civil-rights protestors — was a member of both the Democratic National Committee and the Ku Klux Klan.
Is it any wonder the Democrats yell against discrimination when they were the very ones that did a lot of discrimination themselves?
Take a look at this statement from six-time Socialist Party candidate for US President Norman Thomas and what he said about the Democratic Party in 1944.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened…. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”
Read it and look at it with clear eyes. In this, Thomas states that the Democrats had adopted the Socialist Party Platform. Today, this becomes clear that many people in the Democratic Party have direct links to the Socialist Party, the Communist Party or both. The Democrats may as well just come out and say what they are.
“The 1960s were the heyday of the radical, anti-American movement known as the New Left. (For a detailed discussion of the New Left and its worldview and activities, click here.) By the early 1970s, however, the New Left had spent its political capital and was a dying movement. But its adherents remained committed to the cause, altering their tactics so as to work within the political and social system in a manner the New Left had previously chosen not to do. These latter-day leftists incorporated the tactics of Saul Alinsky, seeking to change society by first infiltrating its major institutions – the schools, the media, the churches, the entertainment industry, the labor unions, and the three branches of government – and then implementing policies from those positions of power.”
Here we see the Democrats began their change into the realm of Saul Alinsky. Please read the above link to Saul Alinsky to find out just what the Democrats are doing today go directly back to what Communist Alinsky formatted for a Communist destruction of the United States! We should question all that the Democrats do as they are not for the Constitution, but are, in fact, against it and can only win by berating anyone they wish.
“Today’s ruling Democratic Party faction, whose members include the so-called “Shadow Party” and its constituent elements, call themselves “progressive Democrats.” These Democrats themselves have a leftwing faction in the House of Representatives which is formally organized into theProgressive Caucus.”
Democrats have sold the people out for Communists and Socialists. The people the Democrats want now are just plain old misdirection. Just look at the next part of this showing Democrats association to both the Socialists and Communists.
In April 2010, the official website of the Social Democrats USA (SDUSA) revealed that organization’s ties to the Democratic Party. Describing itself as a “Party Within a Party,” SDUSA stated the following:
The Social Democrats, USA kept the name Socialist Party for our political arm because we are the party of Eugene Debs, Mother Jones, Helen Keller, Carl Sandburg, Norman Thomas, A. Philip Randolph, Bayard Rustin, and thousands of people who worked to build the civil rights and trade union movements in this country. Many good folks gave their lives in these movements.
The Socialist Party, USA, in 1956, chose to stop running candidates of its own, except on rare occasion. During the 1960’s, we began to work in the Democratic Party. This is where our allies in the civil rights and trade union movement worked and continue to work politically. We are proud of what we helped accomplish within the Democratic Party, particularly the civil rights legislation and anti-poverty programs of the 1960’s. The struggle continues.
Our movement has been involved in the left wing of the Democratic Party since 1947. Socialist Party members helped found Americans for Democratic Action. ADA is this country’s premiere “anti-Communist, liberal” organization. We are proud of our long relationships with Eleanor Roosevelt, Hubert Humphrey, and others. We look forward to forging a good working relationship with our fellow pro-labor, anti-totalitarian, left Democrats.
Late in 2010, Communist Party USA member C.J. Atkins called for his comrades to drop their “communist” label, so that they could work more effectively inside the Democratic Party. Soon thereafter, Joe Sims, co-editor of the CPUSA publication Peoples World, acknowledged not only that collaboration with the Democrats “will be an area of engagement for those wanting to make a difference,” but also that communists might someday be able to “capture” the Democratic Party entirely. Sims warned, however, against dissolving the CPUSA entirely into the Democratic Party. Rather, he advised his organization to remain a separate entity, working both inside and outside the Democratic Party as circumstances required.
This makes it clear that the Democratic Party today is not what they lay claim to being. I have presented just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. But just like the iceberg, the Democrats are sure to make it hard to see what lies below the surface. The way the Democrats are acting today with Judge Kavanaugh, shows just how far they will go to maintain power and this freak show with all the bought and paid for women is nothing more than their hate to have a Supreme Court that would base their decisions on the written law and the Constitution.
We hope we have shown enough about the real Democratic Party, which today is much more like a Socialist/Communist Party than a party based upon the rule of law and the Constitution. You decide, because if the Democrats win, we all lose since then they will allow their Socialist/Communist friends such as George Soros to do as they please to destroy our nation by eliminating parts, if not all, of the entire Constitution.
