Recently reports echoed across the internet detailing a myriad of possible considerations by Trump and his team for cabinet and advisory positions. Among the list the most controversial has been Steve Bannon known mostly as the former head of Breitbart News. Bannon has come under much criticism and much of what he receives he deserves as he has embraced the very controversial amalgamous group called the Al-right; however, we must not ignore the affiliations of some of his criticizers and the ideological movement that has been partially responsible for the rise of Trump, his new Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, and most of all the Alt-right.
Robert Reich, the former secretary of Labor under President Clinton and advisors to Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, took to the dangerous streets of social media, where the Alt-right has been known to troll, in order to criticize Trump for his choice of Bannon as his Chief Advisor by saying,
Much of this is unfounded and absolute hogwash unless we politically indict Bannon for his indirect associations with these radical groups. Reich along with thousands of other left-wing operatives like him that promote a Progressive movement built on class warfare are responsible for the rise of this European right-wing style backlash to their European left-wing agenda. While he stands with righteous indignation against the very loose and indirect nefarious associations of Bannon, Reich has been silent about the direct associations and appointments that have been a part of the party in power that he has praised with full throated support as well as the radicals he is working directly with.
The Alt-right makes up a more nationalist populist offset of Trump supporters that are made up of people that partially identify with the Tea Party. The Alt-right strongly supported Donald Trump like much of the Tea Party because of the pro-American message that Donald Trump shouted from the political rooftops around the nation during his campaign. The Alt-right is a large group much like that of the Tea Party where much of the political positions overlap. The group is hardly as organized as the Tea Party has been and really has been made bigger by the media than it really is. Even if we solidify Bannon’s claim that Breitbart is a home for the Alt-right, we would only be considering 9 million people if the entirety of Breitbart’s viewership were fire branded Alt-right ideologues. We know that it is not the case.
The loosely defined Alt-right, the Tea Party, as well as Trump supporters generally contain millions of American that fear for the destruction of the American culture by the Progressive muilti-cultural policies that are dissolving the once great America. Within this large diverse group of those that identify or affiliate themselves with the general cause of the Alt-right is a small subset of more radical and dangerous factions of the group.
The small subset represents a strand of voices that hurl troll-like polemics of racism, homophobia, sexism, xenophobia, or whatever other type of phobia that can be formulated, crafted, and projected into the new class war. This class war has been rising from the chilled dormant soils of an America that had been long sealed in the history of the American Civil War. It is a new war appearing mostly as an shadow-like apparition projected on the psyche of the American people by the Progressive political establishment, Progressive master-minds, and the main stream media. While the existence of this shadow-like apparition exists and has been taken out of perspective of its true threat, we must take into account that there is a part of the nation’s character that does support this meniscal ideological shape that gives validation to those that point to the specter of the imaginary new Confederacy.
Second, there are multiple specters in the room
There is no doubt that there is a small subset of white nationalists, white supremacists, anti-Semitists, or even pro-Nazi factions within the Alt-right much like there were the same loathly members of the Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street, the Democratic Party, and other groups supporting political positions. While these groups do exist in the Alt-right, they are a very small minority of this movement. The problem is quantifying the number of them because the nuanced rhetoric, what is mostly in question, is being used as evidence as a broad brush to paint all Trump supporters and Conservatives alike. That would be like Conservatives painting all Liberals as Maoists. Among the Alt-right, the Tea Party, and Conservatives generally, Americanism is being lumped together with Nationalism as well as by the detractors of these groups. We must note that many involved in these groups and the oppositions to the groups are unaware, disenfranchised, and newly politically activated participants in a war that has been perpetuated by Progressives.
The Black Lives Matter movement was built on grievances created by an illusion of systematic racism with solutions including ideas related to black separatism or afro-centrism that very much parallels the desire for segregation that the white supremacist separatists do. While both of these separatist groups are to be reviled for their antagonistic hateful modus operandi, the Black Lives Matter group has received a proverbial hall pass through our political consciousness by the national media and Progressive political types. They have even been embraced by the highest levels of our political establishment including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former Attorney General Eric Holder, and even Barack Obama.
While there is little legitimacy to the grievances that Black Lives Matter portrays, their political desires and ways of achieving them have been violent and destructive all fueled by agitants that claim the entire system is against them. It is an absolute lie! The violence and destruction does not come without consequences and the consequences are an angry response at the ballot box. The support for BLM’s unlawful dissidence by the highest representatives of law and order in the land has created a back lash or what community Marxist agitators like former Obama “Green Job Csar” Van Jones has called “White Lash”. Mixed amongst the many millions of Americans that have become fed up with the class warfare perpetuated on them is what has become the new focus by those wishing to further divide the nation – white nationalists.
The left created the Alt-right
Self-proclaimed members of the Alt-right are not principled constitutional Conservatives generally. They may speak on terms with Conservatives but the US Constitution is not their political north. It is a right wing European movement that has hitched itself to the momentum of the Tea Party and it is fueled by the reaction to the overreaching Progressive political establishment within both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The same criticism levied on the Tea Party is now being levied on its mischievous more ideological step brother and the criticism has more legitimacy.
The American people that support Constitutional government and community solutions are sick of being labeled as racists. The overwhelming majority of Americans do not support racism, sexism, xenophobia, etc but if Progressives continue to perpetuate class warfare as a solution to any remaining irreconcilable vestiges of the inequality of opportunity or even as a delusional attempt at achieving “equality of outcomes”, we will further divide a nation along the blurry lines of our visual ethnic differences.
While most Americans avoid the conflict that exists between the marginalized politically constructed classes, a growing majority of them are becoming active. The radical propositions by the Progressive left in the country are being felt inside of many homes with the failure of Obamacare that decimated the health care system, the attack on the church by the Progressive left, the stagnant economic policies of the Progressive left, and the social unrest perpetuated by the divisive and socially destructive “social justice” polemics.
Progressive radicals are doubling down
Now that the Democratic Party has collapsed under its own revolutionary weight, a new plan is being devised that will further divide the nation and propel the country into more incivility and lawlessness. In 2007 a memo was sent to George and Jonathan Soros, Peter and Jonathan Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler, Steve Bing, John Sperling, Michael Vachon from SEIU leaders Andy Stern, Anna Burger as well as the latest Progressive General John Podesta that laid out a strategy of creating the conditions for a political “tidal wave” against the GOP in 2008. The plan was a massive success as Progressive Champion Barack Obama was launched into the White House.
The plan outlined a number of different strategical engagements. Most notably was the engagement with certain demographic groups. One of the parts of this plan notes,
“Ensure that demographics is destiny. An ‘emerging progressive majority’ is a realistic possibility in terms of demographic and voting patterns. But it is incomplete in terms of organizing and political work. Women, communities of color, and highly educated professionals are core parts of the progressive coalition. Nationally, and in key battleground states, their influence is growing. Latinos and young voters are quickly solidifying in this coalition as well. But many of these voters are new to the process. All of these groups—in addition to working class voters and independents picked up in 2006—will require significant long-term engagement in order to keep them reliably on our side. “
Other groups that are mentioned in this memo were Millennials/Gen-Y, Union Households, and Secular Voters.
The memo recognizes the success in coordinating and building the Progressive power structure but explains that the new effort is to create an “echo chamber” to drown out the majority voices in our political discourse with the minority voices.
“Control the political discourse. So much effort over the past few years has been focused on better coordinating, strengthening, and developing progressive institutions and leaders. Now that this enhanced infrastructure is in place—grassroots organizing; multi-issue advocacy groups; think tanks; youth outreach; faith communities; micro-targeting outfits; the netroots and blogosphere—we need to better utilize these networks to drive the content of politics through a strong ‘echo chamber’ and message delivery system. “
The same type of plan is being put together now and that plan is similar but on left-wing ideological steroids. The Progressive power structure has grown in massive ways during the Obama administration as many groups received large financial benefits as byproducts of government grants, emboldened left wing pseudo-philanthropic, and even Executive Branch shake downs of private business that have been forced to give to community groups.
The rise of the Progressive Spring
Hillary Clinton represented the brittle winter of the old Democratic Party that once represented a strong support for working America and a semblance of fiscal responsibility. Hillary Clinton had trouble shifting into the new Progressive paradigm that has grown as a neoplastic-like political abscess on the Democratic Party into a brain eating ameba of Marxist-Leninism. The Democratic fight for the effluence of the American worker has morphed into a fight for political power by the Progressive Marxist-Leninist Vanguard. Instead of representing the American worker, Progressives are now wielding the plight of the American worker alongside of the plight of minorities as a weapon of class warfare.
The new Democratic Party is a party driven by Marxist-Leninist ideologues that see minorities, women, LBGT, the environment, and other special interest groups as prime movers for Progressive change. Progressivism is the evolution of society towards a socialist utopia that incrementally phases out a fixed constitutional government for a more evolutionary Progressive “social justice” driven model. This is dangerous because it shifts the justice system from a rule of law to a rule of man.
Democracy Alliance 2016
The meeting labeled “Seizing Opportunity & Building Power” includes an itinerary of the “who’s who” of Progressive operators. Leaders of the massive infrastructure as mentioned in the 2007 SEIU memo are at the stars in the room including people like President of Democracy Alliance, Green for ALL founder and self-proclaimed Communist Van Jones, former Legislative Director of ACORN and executive director of Center for Community Change Deepak Bhargova, Progressive firebrand and US Senator Elizabeth Warren, US Senator Kristin Gillibrand, Media Matters for America founder David Brock, and many more Progressive leaders.
Some of the topics that are being discussed are:
- Playing Progressive Offense
- Climate + Equity: Accomplishments and Unfinished Business
- Innovation Showcase: Technology, Media, and Movement Building
- Next Generation Engagement in 2016 and Beyond
- Combatting the Massive Threats from Trump and Congress in 2017
- Toward Becoming a Progressive, Not just Blues State
- The Working Class Vote
- Women & the 2016 Election: Milestones, Misogyny, & Mapping a Path Forward
- Trump’s First 100 Days
This entire effort can be pulled together under the model of the fundamental transformation of the Democratic Party to a full scale Progressive Party embracing Socialism as a national platform. From there we are led as a nation to the desired goal of Barack Obama of fundamental change of the United States of America.
The Progressives have been emboldened by the popularity of the Democratic Socialist candidate Bernie Sanders. The millennial youth heavily supported him and are the new range of voters that will become eligible to vote and more active over the next few years. Progressives will rally behind the momentum of the new energy that Bernie Sanders captured with new more youthfully energetic candidates like Elizabeth Warren, Kristen Gillibrand, and Kory Booker.
To the Liberals that are criticizing the Alt-right
I stand with you! I stand with you because I fear what the Progressives have created by perpetuating class warfare. If the Progressives continue by marginalizing and dividing the nation into factions the American people will rise up and reject it and among those that will reject it will be far right wing European-style fascists who will capitalize on the anger the American people are experiencing. If you wish to ignore the radicals on your own side of the ideological spectrum you will be partially responsible for this rise in nationalism that aims to extinguish it.
Listen to "Donald Trump & the Progressive Spring" on Spreaker.
History provides evidence that socialism as prescribed by Progressives creates a two part paradigm which includes Democratic Socialism and National Socialism. There is a dark reminder in history that provides evidence of this. The evidence is surrounded by the sobering reminder of the deaths of up to one hundred million people at the hands of people that pray at the altar of Socialism. The extreme manifestations witnessed in history have been at the hands of Stalin, Mao, Castro on the Democratic Socialist/Communist side and Mussolini and Hitler on the other. The radicalism we are experiencing currently is much more prominent on the political Democratic Socialist left for now and if it is not reduced in its magnitude by our friends on the Liberal left, the natural societal evolution will produce a rise in National Socialism.
Steve Bannon is an opportunist like most politicians. Politicians are a reflection of the culture that is offering their power to wield on their behalf. I fear Bannon like I fear Valerie Jarret and you should to. I feared Barack Obama as you do Donald Trump. Barack Obama started his political career in the home of an unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and sat in the pews of an anti-Semitic Jew hating Marxist preacher Jerimiah Wright. We heeded the warnings in 2008 as you heed the warnings now. Bannon never tried to blow up a federal building and Trump didn’t sit in the pews of a Jew hating preacher for twenty years.
This culture you fear didn’t just materialize overnight. It was made aware to you in 2008. You just chose to ignore it because your candidate was in the White House. This culture you now fear has grown as a reaction to Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, and Reid. It is a reaction to Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street. CAIR, La Raza, and others. It is a reaction to the Progressive machine propelled by Soros’ Open Society Institute, The Center for American Progress, the Institute for Policy Studies, and other Marxist think tanks.
If you do not address the fear from those that have stood up to the radical left and you double down with the likes of the aforementioned groups, you are contributing to the rise of hate in the nation and eventually the fall of a great nation. We can stand together now if we choose to make a difference. We have to reduce the scale of government that provides the tremendous power to people like Obama and now Trump. We can reduce the threat by reducing the centralized power. With all of this fear of Executive Branch, on behalf of Conservatives, we welcome you to the Tea Party.
