Opinion: Americans were told, by the Marxist media of that day, that Senator Joe McCarthy was playing off the fears that communists had infiltrated the institutions of our government during post-WWII America simply for the political benefit of damaging Democrats.
History recalls Senator McCarthy as a right-wing radical who spent almost five years trying in vain to expose communists and other left-wing “loyalty risks” in the U.S. government. History lies.
Fast forward to today where elements of the Obama administration spent the better part of four years trying to smear Donald Trump using the same Red Scare.
There is a difference however. A major difference. McCarthy was right.
More importantly, because the Marxist media complex was successful in destroying McCarthy, those anti-American elements eventually grew their power and seized control over our governmental institutions.
Chief among those institutions, but by no means limited to them, are our intelligence agencies and the State Department. The infiltration, by appointment, of our judiciary has also been a major factor contributing to the decay of America.
Thanks to the work of researcher Diana West – she has traced the Marxist lineage of many of those who conspired to destroy President Trump – and the seeming unanimity of congressional Democrats defending those efforts the Red Menace, they almost succeeded.
Her interview with Stephan Molyneux, wherein she introduces her new book The Red Thread, explains the history of the major players in Spygate, is among the most eye-opening videos you’ll ever see.
I usually I call your attention to specific passages within a video. Not so here.
This is as impactful an hour as you’ll ever spend if you want to know what motivated the conspirators who were in charge of those agencies that attempted a coup d’etat against a duly elected president.
Ms. West has also written a book called The Red Thread that explains what she discovered in her search for the ideological drivers of the conspirators.
“There was nothing normal about the 2016 presidential election, not when senior U.S. officials were turning the surveillance powers of the federal government — designed to stop terrorist attacks — against the Republican presidential team. These were the ruthless tactics of a Soviet-style police state, not a democratic republic.”
“The Red Thread asks the simple question: Why? What is it that motivated these anti-Trump conspirators from inside and around the Obama administration and Clinton networks to depart so drastically from “politics as usual” to participate in a seditious effort to overturn an election?”
Once you understand the internal belief system and agenda driving those attacking President Trump you’ll better understand the target of the attempted coup.
Now, to understand why the Democratic Party has lurched so far left – open/no borders, 70-90% income tax rates, the Green New Deal, reparations – recall the words of six-time Socialist Party presidential candidate:
Socialism always devolves, A-L-W-A-Y-S, devolves into totalitarianism because sooner or later the people elect a malevolent leader who then uses the institutions designed to protect us from him, to consolidate his power. That man was Barack Obama.
The left realizes it may never again be able to gin up the same level of hatred for another opposition candidate as it has against Donald Trump.
If they are successful in ending his presidency – either by impeachment or in 2020 – they will, with the help of the mainstream Marxist media, be able to announce they have a mandate to move forward on their radical agenda.
Diana West’s description of Donald Trump is a chilling reminder of just how close we have come to losing our republic:
“… this outrageous kind of character assassination that I think would have withered and destroyed 99 percent if not higher of public figures.
I mean Donald Trump is singular in in so many ways and I think this incredible strength and courage that he has it’s, it’s kind of almost superhuman.”
