The Democrat Party is veering into very dangerous territory...morphing almost overnight into a far-left, socialist...dare we even say communistic organ. To casual observers, the AOC/Squad phenomenon likely appears to be somewhere between blip-on-the-radar unimportant and benignly spontaneous.

It is far from either of these things. AOC's arrival, and her (backers') growing political influence, is part of a much larger - and well funded - effort to fundamentally transform America (and thereby the entire Western world).


The Democratic Party bears little resemblance to the themes Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton embraced in the 2008 primaries...

...The socialist party has absorbed what is left of the old Democrats. At first, the progressive old guard in Congress, like good Girondists, found the revolutionary carnivores useful in reducing the ranks of the Trumpians, the Tea Party, Reagan Democrats, old Perot voters and the white working class to the inanimate status of “deplorables,” “irredeemables,” “clingers” and “dregs” — and with them, the bigoted, racist, sexist, nativist, classist, homophobic and xenophobic GOP.

Certainly, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and a few geriatric sympathizers such as Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin enjoyed the progressive feasting on the ancien régime — especially the unity offered by a shared hatred of the obviously soon-to-be-impeached, deposed, exiled and discredited President Trump.

[...]


Indeed...the complicit MSM has regularly pointed out the weakness inherent in 2020 Democrat Candidates who are unfortunate enough to have been born without darker skin tones, or with genitalia that would have identified them as male at birth. Old Guard candidates and Party Officials (Biden and Pelosi included) are being labelled as racists...a label (unfounded or not) from which there is no recovery or redemption in the left-leaning universe.


In the manner that Robespierre and his Committee of Public Safety guillotined naïve Girondists, so, too, “the Squad” of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib are now damning Pelosi as a racist.

[...]

What is the next wrinkle in this revolutionary trajectory to the guillotine?

...Where will it all lead? To the metaphorical collective Democratic guillotine unless some sane Democrat stands up and says no more — and learns that the revolutionary mob might prefer to guillotine the guillotiners.


New Socialist Dems Will Eat Their Own to Gain Power

What is important to understand, I think, is that the election of Cortez in particular was not a fluke or an accident of political nature. She was chosen, and is a prototype, for what her backers want to create...which is a Socialist majority in the Federal halls of power in America. The people who created AOC want nothing less than to make Trump eat his words when he said that "America will never be a socialist Country".

Let's take a really quick look at the AOC/Squad organizational structure - and understand that she is on the lowest rung, not the top rung (I sometimes wonder if she truly understands that she is not "the boss", but only an expendable prop).

Top Rung (unless there is another one above this, that has not yet been identified) - George Soros, who has a net worth of $8 billion - even after "donating" $18 billion to his "Open Society Foundations"
Second Rung - The Media Consortium, a network of far left media publications which includes Mother Jones, Democracy Now!, The Young Turks and dozens of other outlets, which is funded by George Soros (this network is said to reach 300 million people monthly).
Third Rung - The Justice Democrats, an organization that organizes and funds Socialists who will "primary" old-guard Democrats (like AOC did to Joseph Crowley), was founded by Cenk Uygur (of the Young Turks).
Fourth Rung - Saikat Chakrabarti, Executive Director of the Justice Democrats (and now AOC's Chief of Staff in Congress) ran a contest to find someone to run against Joseph Crowley in NY. Cortez applied, and won the competition.
Fifth Rung - AOC, and any others who may be elected under the auspices of this power structure. She is not running the show, and likely does not clearly understand that, at some point, she would also be consumed by this communistic organization.

AOC Thanks Young Turks, Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress
The Brains Behind AOC

Make no mistake Chuck and Nancy (and all other Democrats who will not cave to the new Socialist/Communist agenda), AOC's bosses are coming for you. And if they get their majorities in Congress, and a perch in (or political control of) the White House...they will be coming for the rest of America (any that occupy political ground to the right of Mao's principles anyway).

Yet those top rung people and organizations you listed are almost all rich people who got their money from within the system of capitalism. Soros for one is a capitalist and the news agencies are profit driven info outlets. So help me here in understanding just how these are pushing us into far-left, socialist and communism which are all anti-capitalist.

The "old guard" made their own bed, when they gladly accepted these "new socialist" with open arms. As long as they were bashing Trump, the more the merrier.

Now, they are coming to grips with the possibility that they may have "chosen poorly" (couldn't resist the IJ reference).

Pelosi, for her part, realized a few months ago, where this was going, but by then it was too late. She is now grasping at straws to keep herself "relevant", knowing full well that the price of "relevance" is likely to destroy the party as it currently exists, casting off moderate democratic voters, along the way.

So not only is "The Squad" starting a war with the Republicans and the President of the United States, but it is also essentially starting a civil war with its own party!

Oh boy...

Quality post. Thanks.

As I just pointed out in another thread, these are people who threatened violence against an 8 year old girl in order to silence her. That is Kristallnacht level stuff. And as far as I know, nobody has denounced it.

If Americans don't wake up and deal with this now, we'll be seeing our own series of Pogromnacht in the good ol' USofA.

As everyone knows, it is very difficult in America for a "third party" candidate to get elected to Congress - or certainly elected to the Presidency.

This is why Bernie Sanders, who sits in the Senate as an Independent, puts on Democrat's clothing for the Presidential Primary season. He is not a Democrat, but he seeks the Democrat nomination - and he nearly won it for 2016! Some would say that Donald Trump did the same thing when he declared himself to be a Republican Candidate.

So, in order to gain real power, this group recognizes that it must (a) attach itself to one of the two accepted political parties, (b) use that party as a "host" organism while it disrupts and ultimately consumes it from within, and then (c) emerge as a grossly mutated party, that still carries with it the branding of its then deceased host, for at least one election cycle...so that it can gain the reigns of power and force the rest of the transformation on an unsuspecting (or hopelessly naive) populace.

Actually, IMO...some people in congress got help in being elected in the last election mainly because they were vocally "Anti-Trump".

Words.


Now that they have to face the prospect of a re-election, they will be judged by what they say and more importantly, what they do in their term.


Some of these people will not be re-elected. Right now,,, looks like Trump is not in that group.



In the real world, almost everybody hates the new person who comes on a job thinking they know everything about the job better than anyone else on their first day. Guess it is pretty much the same in politics.

Well, it must be just a puzzling for you to try to understand why some of the very richest and most successful businesses in the world are actively engaging in the suppression of Conservatives and conservative thought...and overwhelmingly support far-left causes and movements - and would even go so far as to decline to work with the U.S. military, but happily work with the Communist Chinese military (and that Government's efforts to suppress all thoughts and actions that might be interpreted as being against the Communist Party).

Let me hazard a guess here for you. It's because the capitalist system, and democratic institutions, provide a means to generate and accumulate great wealth - which can then be used to manipulate and control political and societal outcomes that are closer to their true aims.

Here is a little insight into the guy that occupies the top rung in the organizational structure shown in the OP...some quotes from George Soros:


“I fancied myself as some kind of god. If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.“

"It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.“

“I am sort of a deus ex machina. I am something unnatural. I’m very comfortable with my public persona because it is one I have created for myself. It represents what I like to be as distinct from what I really am. You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’m very much self-centered.”

“I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.”

“Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. In fact, my grandfather was actually paranoid. I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.“

“I do not accept the rules imposed by others. And in periods of regime change, the normal rules don’t apply.”


The normal rules don't apply during periods of regime change, according to Soros...and Soros is attempting to effect a regime change in the United States of America.


he (Soros) writes in his latest book, “The Bubble of American Supremacy,” is a “threat to the world.” We have become a “supremacist” nation.


Soros...AOC's Boss...believes he is a God

Easy fix. Establish official tenets of the party. Advocating for socialism for example would be grounds for expulsion.
Bernie and AOC would have to find another home or start their own party.

Have to have have clearer boundaries. Democrats really struggle with this concept for some reason. Ban all guns, ban some of them, allow prisoners to vote, prisoners not allowed....on and on. It's all over the place. I almost feel sorry for them but it's their own fault. Bernie should have been kicked out years ago.

Simply because you cannot start a socialist system from nothing or by itself.

Socialism is generated from capitalism.

If you want to actually understand the concept instead of just throwing around the "capitalism bad" card, I suggest you read up on Karl Marx and his ideology.

He's pretty clear about it.

Thank you, I appreciate the time you took to answer my question so thoroughly. I can see the conundrum you present of individuals and organizations using the capitalist system to gather enough wealth to effect the changes they want to happen. This should be a given. But not just a given in the case of Soros but rather to my mind the entire top tier of the capitalist world. Can you disagree with that, that that top tier can all fall subject to the tendencies of omnipotence that Soros honestly describes within himself? I can see it easily.

And yes, I can see your next point as well, that these individuals and organizations act to suppress conservative thought, though not exclusively. Much of conservative thought is designed to align itself with the historical channels of wealth production. Feudalism fought against the emerging merchant class because it spread the wealth to a larger segment of society rather than keeping it all in the hands of the aristocracy.

The craftsmen who were the spearhead of trade unions were very restrictive in who they allowed the skills they used so to keep the wealth that their skills provided them all to themselves. Likewise though history, every wealth generating engine is fought for and protected from newer in ovations so as to keep that wealth from spreading out further.

So what I see here is not so much a battle of socialism and capitalism but rather the battle within the capitalist system itself. New products come on line and threaten the wealth or older monopolies on wealth production. This is one aspect of the conservative, neo liberal struggle of the past. Conservatives wanted to keep the consumer public the same so that that passive group would just keep buying the same product and hopefully the same brand from crib to coffin. Those of neo-liberal persuasion sought to either change or allow to change that consumer base so as to steal away some of that consumer base to make their own in roads into that wealth generating machine.

OH wait, isn't that what you just said?

Let me hazard a guess here for you. It's because the capitalist system, and democratic institutions, provide a means to generate and accumulate great wealth - which can then be used to manipulate and control political and societal outcomes that are closer to their true aims.


If yes, then I agree. All sides within this capitalist system strive to manipulate and control public consciousness because their true aim is to increase their own wealth, advertising being a perfect example. My coke or your Pepsi. Choose because one is so much better than the other. What a ball of crap.

So the real battle as I see it is not between capitalism and socialism/communism but rather which capitalist vision is the best way to insure the continuance of private ownership of wealth which is now accumulated in the hands of a very few families and corporations, none of which are socialist. Remember, socialism is where the workers of a business are also the owners of that business and share equally in it's fruits. Can you point to any profit organization where this holds true? I cannot.

“socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, as the socialists would like you to believe, but a consolidate-and-control-the-wealth program for the Insiders.”
― Gary Allen, None Dare Call It Conspiracy

When you understand that socialism and communism are not wealth distribution paradigms, but mechinations to control the money supply, the apparent hypocrisy of the extremely wealthy supporting socialism, disappears.

As discussed in another recent thread, socialism looks good "on paper", but altruistic socialism is not compatible with human nature, as a whole.

I disagree. I think that what you describe is the exact definition of the capitalist system. If it was as you describe, how is it that the entire top tier of wealth generation is controlled by those very insiders. Don't all studies now describe an economic system that is controlled by only a few families and their corporations. Are you suggesting that all of those in that top .1 percent are socialist?

You see, as I mentioned earlier, socialism is workers owning their own means of production, not a means of wealth distribution. That was left to communism which agreeably is a system of wealth distribution. It was in place, communism that is supposedly only as a temporary system to break down the capitalist system in order to allow a socialist system to grow into it's own maturity. That however did not work. The communism turned into one more brand of authoritarianism
rather and an avenue towards socialism. Real socialism is dead and all that is left of it is it's value as a far left boogyman to be used by corporate warriors in describing their enemies in the corporate wars that is the real struggle we see going on around us.
