The Seditious Among Us

By Steve McCann, AMERICAN THINKER

In the world of politics, repetition is almost without fail the key to winning elections.   The dominant campaign issue in the upcoming election that President Trump, the Republican Party and the conservative media must relentlessly repeat is the now irrefutable fact that Joe Biden, the Democrat party and the mainstream media have tacitly sanctioned sedition and have betrayed the American people.  Consequently, if Biden and the Democrats win in November, they will be incapable of preventing the Marxist ultimatums of the radical left from becoming the law of the land.

By refusing to not only condemn but implicitly encouraging the ongoing riots and violence as well as meekly acquiescing to the demands of the left-wing extremist, the Democrat party establishment, which includes the mainstream media, has exposed their spinelessness for the world to see and signed on to government by mob rule.

The Marxist ideologues in the nation’s professoriate, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the media and the extreme left-wing of the Democrat party have unabashedly declared their primary objective is to overthrow the government and radically transform the nation.  Yet, there is no condemnation or repudiation of these goals from Biden, the Democrat party hierarchy or the mainstream media.  By their silence they have wordlessly endorsed sedition.

The dedicated Marxist ideologues now know with certainty that these self-absorbed elitists will cower and surrender in the face of no more than the threat of turmoil throughout the country.   Meanwhile, the Party hierarchy and the bulk of the ruling class has naively convinced themselves, that when the time comes, they will be able to mollify these radicals and still maintain command of the levers of power.

Were the Democrats to take over Congress and place a senescent mannequin in the White House, the only remaining ingredient the radical left would need to complete their revolution is the elimination of any serious opposition from the monied capitalists and major industrial sectors while strong-arming them for financial support.

To that end, the so-called captains of industry and finance throughout the country, over the past two months, have fallen all over themselves to placate the left-wing mob by prostrating themselves before them.  Faintheartedness that is not lost on their implacable nemesis.  Despite the declared objectives of the Marxists, these executives and corporations are willingly paying exorbitant shakedown monies in a myopic effort to buy peace or in lieu of money credulously promoting subversive propaganda to the masses.  Thus, casting themselves as de facto co-conspirators in the radical left’s seditious activities.

While these extremists make up just 15% of registered Democrats, they now control the Party and are in position of not only accelerating their ultimate aim of fundamentally transforming America but of dominating the corridors of power in perpetuity.

There are those, such as the duplicitous NeverTrump battalion, the majority of talking heads on cable, many bloggers on the internet, countless ruling elites as well as the Democrat party establishment, who would doubtlessly claim this scenario could never come to pass.   That this is mere trafficking in political hyperbole and mindless fear mongering.   So, since the left’s favored epithet is to accuse their opposition of being Nazis or Fascists, some historical perspective.

The key event that triggered Hitler’s seizure of power in Germany was his appointment as Chancellor in 1933.   But in 1932 the situation of the Nazi Party was not promising.  In the election of November 1932, the party lost 2,000,000 votes in comparison to the election in July 1932 and their representation in the Reichstag fell from 230 seats to 196 (out of 647) thus, eliminating the party from a dominant role in the formation of a coalition government.  The party desperately needed financial support and the backing of a substantial segment of the ruling class to make possible the completion of the Nazi drive to a dictatorship.  Something had to be done before the next election in March of 1933.

In January, Hitler met with 25 of Germany’s leading industrialists at the home of Herman Goering.   Hitler seditiously and unabashedly declared his intention to seize power by violence if the Nazis failed to win a majority in the Reichstag.  He clearly stated that private enterprise cannot be maintained in the age of democracy unless a strong leader is in power to control the masses internally and defeat the nation’s external enemies — which only he could do.

The message was not lost on these men as none even contemplated reporting Hitler to the authorities for his seditious plot to overthrow the government.  They were aware of the violent track record of the Nazis and their militant arm, the SA or Brown Shirts.  At the end of the meeting Goering asked for money stating: “The sacrifice asked would be so much easier for industry to bear if it realized that the election of 5 March will surely be the last one for the next ten years, possibly for the next hundred years.”  Convinced that they were buying permanent protection, these industrialists quickly coughed up the equivalent of $30 million today, thus, rendering them de facto traitors to the Weimar Constitution in their complicity with Hitler and the Nazis.

With the public backing of the industrial elites and not so veiled threats of uncontrollable street violence, Hitler successfully intimidated the cabinet and President Paul Von Hindenburg into appointing him as Chancellor prior to the March elections.  Their acquiescence was predicated on the conviction that they could easily mollify Hitler by granting the Nazis a modicum of what they demanded and still retain control of the government.  Within 6 months, utilizing violence and traitorous tactics the ruling class was too timorous to oppose, Hitler was effectively the dictator of Germany.

Hitler was very aware of two factors that he could exploit to overturn the government and assume dictatorial power.  The first, once violence was not firmly dealt with and tolerated then just the threat of violence would be sufficient to intimidate the ruling class.  The second, was the inbred naiveté and egocentricity of the ruling class in believing that they, by their extraordinary powers of persuasion, could placate anyone or any movement and still maintain power.  These lessons are not lost on the Marxists running amok in the United States today.

Biden, the Democrat party and the mainstream media has enabled the fanatical Marxist left in the naive belief that they can, if they win in November, appease them by agreeing to watered-down versions of their demands and thus retain control of the halls of power in Washington.   This oblivious egomania is further on display as these credulous buffoons claim to believe that Donald Trump is the greatest threat to the nation in its history and must be defeated regardless of the consequences.  Even if their alliance of convenience with the Marxists eventuates in endless violence and the radical makeover of the country.

There is but one word to describe this cabal: traitors.  Not because they wish to see Trump defeated or choose to not vote for him in November but that they are willingly and openly in league with those implacably bent on overthrowing the government and radically transforming the United States.  A message that must be relentlessly repeated throughout the upcoming campaign.

  1. There are two significant difference between Hitler and our present crop of anarchist-Marxists. One, they were united around a charismatic leader, who has yet to emerge among the U.S. rebels. Two, at least Hitler knew what he wanted, and had a definite agenda for what he would do when he seized power–expanding German-ruled territory in the East, genocide of the Jewish people and the expropriation of their wealth and property, and the enslavement of some of the Slavic peoples to the east of Germany. He spelled out some of these objectives in Mein Kamph, and broadly hinted at the others. By contrast, our present-day anarchists and Marxists seem to have no agenda beyond defunding and abolishing the police, burning down cities, toppling statues and either directly robbing or extorting money from businesses, etc. While they may favor socialism in principle, few of them seem to have either the knowledge or the administrative skills necessary to put it into practice. Total chaos and the disintegration of American society seem a more likely result of a Democratic victory than a socialist state.

  2. On second thought, the “Fed” and Congress have already instituted a kind of corporate state or “managed capitalism” on the Hitler-Mussolini model. businesses are heavily subsidized, many small business are allowed to fail. The “Fed” and Congress decide which businesses will be rewarded with huge grants, and which will be allowed to fail. The government also decides who will receive pensions from the government and who will not, on a case-by-case basis. The government also decides who will be allowed to work, even who will be allowed to leave their homes, what recreational activities people are allowed, etc.

    This vast increase in government power has been decreed as an alleged public health necessity because of the Wuhan virus.

    But once in place, this vast increase in government power can be continued indefinitely for one excuse or another. The government can always claim that the pandemic is continuing long after it has subsided. They are already doing this. Or they can call attention to another epidemic of an infectious disease, such as tuberculosis, which is indeed at epidemic proportions in the United States, including strains that do not respond to antibiotics. And they can also simply claim that the continued government management of business activity is necessary to speed the economic recovery–which will take many years, if ever, to complete.

    While so far, there doesn’t seem to be a political test for who receives the Federal grants and pensions under this system, a Democratic administration, and Democratic state and municipal governments, could certainly institute such political tests, and insure that only Democratic party loyalists and BLM, Antifa and other leftist activists receive the state grants and pensions. Corporate benificiaries could certainly be required to make contributions to the Party and its candidates, and to publlicly endorse them. I guess the institution of a National-socialist style corporate state, although hopefully not one of such extreme brutality, antisemitism, and imperialist objectives as the Nazi regime.

  3. @ Adam Dalgliesh:
    “Corporate beneficiaries” have been financing BOTH Democrats and Republicans for many years, so you are a bit late with your warning.
    In fact, the “Wall Street Democrats” publicly threatened the Democratic party a couple of months ago with throwing their support behind Republicans (if the Democrats won’t stop doing stuff that displeases the Wall Street Democrats) and making the Democratic Party lose the November election.
    Here is the SCOTUS landmark decision that gave the green light to the corporate buyout of both parties:

    I suspect that the corporate ownership of the government is the major cause of the pLandemic.
    The “popular movements” will not take over the government because they themselves are financed by multi billionaires, and, as such, are their toys and puppets.

  4. @ Michael S:
    “Who is the Fuehrer, then?” The one who is getting the most money from the “corporate beneficiaries”.
    Just like the original Fuehrer.

  5. @ Reader:
    No, Reader. The original “Der Fuehrer” was a charismatic speaker with a fanatical following. The “backroom dealers” you’re proposing are nothing like that.

  6. @ Michael S:
    I am not proposing anyone or anything.
    Someone asked a question and I gave my informed opinion since no one else did.
    The original Fuehrer lost two million votes in November 1932 in spite of his “charisma and fanatical following” and got a large amount of “rescue” money from a few German “corporate beneficiaries”.
    One of them boasted right afterwards that “We now bought Hitler!”
    Anyway, how do YOU know who is available for the role?
    Are you privy to the “Deep State’s” secrets?

  7. @ Reader:
    Reader, I’m the “Someone” who asked the question. I asked it of Adam Dalgliesh, because he seemed to be on to something; but you answered it. You seemed to imply that you knew who the fellow/gal was; but now you say you don’t. No problem there — nobody seems to know. I just caught you, once again it seems, trying to put on that you knew more than you do.

    Both Steve McCann and Adam notice a parallel between what’s going on today and what was going on in immediate pre-Nazi Germany. It’s a good analogy; and I agree that the BLM and Antifa rioters closely resemble Hitler’s brown shirts. The only thing that is missing, it seems, is a “Hitler”. That’s why I asked the question.

    It is true, that Hitler conspired with the industrialists for the purpose of personally taking over Germany politically. Now, you and others speak freely of similar “conspiracies”, involving — as you say — “The one who is getting the most money from the “corporate beneficiaries”.” Give me a name, and we’ll take it from there.

    Heck, give me a short list.
