Donald Trump has officially moved into the position of target number one for the political left. Progressives across the country have been beating the drums of racial strife for decades as a means to their political ends. Of course, their drum beats echo the tune of Marxist technicians of Critical Theory and more specifically Critical Race Theory. The aim of progressives is not to heal the wounds of racial discord experienced in this nation since the Civil War. Rather, the aim is to open up racial wounds that have been largely healed and to rub them raw. This is done in order to create a call to action to dismantle what is called an unfair socially unjust American system. The target for this call to action is thousands of angry, demoralized, and disenfranchised members of the populous.
This call to action is much more than a political hissy fit, but rather a calculated nudging of society through yet another progression of human evolution. Architects of this movement aim to achieve what they perceive to be human and societal perfection. The agitation and conflict that is being levied by progressives is necessary to perpetuate the dialectic of progress that is claimed in order deliver us to this utopia. Their immediate act of invoking this "progress" is to organize disaffected classes of people, to motivate them and harvest anger so they collectively rise up in political and even violent revolution. What are they fighting against? A fabricated political bogeyman that appears to fit into the stereotype of “evil fascist bourgeoisie capitalist overlord.”
Among those that have been activated by progressive masterminds are not a new group of young radicals with new ideas, but they are a regurgitated materialistic swath of malcontent ideological retreads. Watchdog group Project Veritas has unveiled a plot of an attempt to sabotage various Trump inauguration events by left wing anarchists and communists.
A recent video shows Industrial Workers of the World Organization member, former staff designer of Think Progress, and online organizer at Energy Action Coalition, Dylan Petrohilos explaining to community organizers that they need to “be prepared to help make the inauguration a giant clusterf*ck."
The video, narrated by founder James O'Keefee, also features Like Kuhn from the Anti-Fascist Coalition where he states,
“The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either. If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will physically fight the police if they try and steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose."
The video also shows Scott Green, also of the Anti-Fascist Coalition saying that “we already know what they’re all there for. We don’t even have to use the word Deploraball at all and things like that, Just in case there are yahoos in there.”
In another clip taken from the Comet Pizzaria in Washington DC, Green says the following:
“I was thinking of things that ruin, that would ruin the evening, ruin their outfits or otherwise make it impossible to continue with their plans. Make sure they get nothing accomplished.”
Luke Kuhn and Scott Green in the same clip proposes the use of butyric acid, as smelly chemical that would irritate the patrons of the Trump inauguration ball. Green says,
“Yeah, if you had… a pint of butyric acid, I don’t care how big the building is, it’s closing..” Green follows by saying, “and this stuff is very efficient, it’s very very smelly, lasts a long time and little of it goes a long way.” Kuhn explains further, “We could do a repeat of the original plan. If you order the same stuff, then I can rig the cans with… you take with a plunger, and rubber bands, and a safety pin things, so all you got to do is pull the pin, press the plunger and the whole can discharges.”
The meeting continued with the plans to scout out the building where an inaugural ball is to be held. Green discussed his plans to look for places to deploy the acid into the HVAC system and also to try and set off the fire sprinkler system in the event that the acid plan fails.
Community agitators like Petrohilos, and anarchists like Green, Kuhn, and others are unifying behind the hashtag of #DisruptJ20. Some of the groups uniting under the umbrella of this effort are Progress Unity Fund, Workers World Party, Americans Take Action, Answer Coalition, among others. These agitators are the tip of the spear, but are disposable. There appears to be much more seeded roots to this attempt to undermine Trump and his presidency that reflect a more familiar roster of progressive organizers which will be unveiled as soon as sources have been verified.
Donald Trump the round peg
Although the projection of the evil fascist bourgeoisie capitalist overlord stereotype effectively jams certain illusions of well-rounded corporate robber barons into the square hole of the label of corporatist fascist, it is the allies of the progressive left that fit squarely into that hole. That stereotype of “evil fascist bourgeoisie capitalist overlord” was erected by the likes of Karl Marx in a time when old monarchial governmental systems were fading with the rise of capitalism accentuated by the European enlightenment. Capitalism was seen as a stepping stone towards the natural progression in human evolution which would one day progress fully to the utopian “worker’s paradise” where class no longer exists. Donald Trump fits perfectly into the round peg mold that the left has begun hammering into their political battlefield.
The organizers of progressive special interest groups are being energized by the drum beat and are harnessing the momentum of racial division enflamed by Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Barack Obama, George Soros, John Podesta, the Clintons and dozens of other progressive generals over the last eight years. Progressive civil rights icon John Lewis, who is ushered to the front of the Democrats short party bus when his waning relevance is needed to shun opponents of Progressivism, launched a political offensive against Donald Trump. Of course the offensive was waged with a political defensive strategically staged in the event Donald Trump responded via his Twitter bazooka.
Political Jiu Jitsu
Leading up to the widely celebrated holiday of Martin Luther King Jr, John Lewis and progressives effectively provoked Donald Trump into attacking the politically petrified John Lewis who marched with MLK in Selma on Bloody Sunday March 7th, 1965. Lewis explained to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press that he did not see Donald Trump as a legitimate president. He said,
“I believe in forgiveness. I believe in trying to work with people,” Lewis told NBC’s Chuck Todd in a segment of “Meet the Press.” “It’s going to be hard. It's going to be very difficult. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”
Donald Trump then responded by tweeting the following,
Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to......
This has been the seductive narrative that the Democrats and their power brokers have utilized to bring a call to action to progressives all across the country. They aim to delegitimize Donald Trump and stamp him as a racist, sexist, xenophobe who stole the election from Hillary Clinton in order to erect a fascist white nationalist government with the help of the Alt-right. The imagery projected by the political think tanks like Center for American Progress through the spectrum of left wing activist organizations is building a Potemkin village of Nazi-like hate to try and tear down. Of course that town is one near you.
Sadly the legacy of John Lewis has been overshadowed by the failures of his heavily progressive-socialist pseudo-solutions that has polarized and crippled much of the communities he and MLK wished to liberate. Lewis was beaten by a police officer in Selma and recalled fearing for his life. While Lewis deserves respect and admiration for his efforts to liberate the American black community, he has become part of the problem he once fought against. The governmental forces that once rejected equality for black Americans have given up on their oppressive efforts of segregation. Instead they aim for Progressive subjugation. Lewis is currently a member of the party of slavery, the party of Jim Crow, the party of segregation, and now the Democratic plantation owners with minorities used as their political slaves.
Lights Camera Progressive Action!
Obama has set the stage over the last eight years and now progressives are moving into action as agitators in a renewed war against what some in their ranks may call the “evil fascist capitalist overlords”. Republicans who have been the minority for the majority of the last 12 years have finally overwhelmingly returned to power with a mandate to reverse all of the damage that Obama has created under his Presidency.
Failing Obamacare, the crumbling borders, the worse race relations on 60 years, a barely sputtering economy, and a waning respect around the world, represent what Obama has provided this nation and its people. With a demoralized people voting for change, class warfare is rife around the nation with the rise of populism and nationalism as an anger driven knee jerk reaction to the Obama years and the blatant out-right divisiveness of the Democratic Party.
Now that Trump and the Republicans have all of the power in government, the time is now for progressives to agitate those that are fearful of a Trump presidency perpetuated much by the false narratives crafted and projected on our society by progressives social engineers. The movement doesn’t stop at the community agitators but extends to the media. In response to Lewis’ offensive and Donald Trump’s response, the media lashed out in typical progressive form and fashion by leaning the bias meter indubitable in favor of Lewis. Here are some of the headlines from the main stream media,
“Trump's Attack on Rep. John Lewis Spotlights Tenuous Relationship With African-Americans” ABC News
“Trump tears into civil rights icon, Rep. John Lewis” Washington Post
“Trump Slams Civil Rights Icon John Lewis as “All Talk … No Action” Slate
“Trump blasts Rep. Lewis for saying his election not legitimate” USAToday
The chorus of the progressive praetorian media has joined the Democratic Party and its ubiquitous apparatchiks by spreading the narrative that Trump is a reckless bigot lavishing in his new found grip on power. The calls of illegitimacy is a coordinated an well focused attack not only on Trump and the Republican Party but the republic as we have known it since its inception in 1791.
This is reflected in statements from #DisruptJ20. On their website, they state,
“This event is organized by our friends the DC Anti-Fascist Coalition, their call to action: Will we let white supremacists, rape-culture sexists, and fascists celebrate hate in our city? Absolutely not. When these people gather to promote their truly deplorable ways, we will protest. Members of the Alt Reich are having a fancy ball, taking a smarmy victory lap through our DC streets to celebrate their sexual assaulter in chief, Donald Trump. …. We are outraged that this group, the worst of the worst, is being hosted by the National Press Club. These deplorables have demonstrated they care nothing for truth, will harass and abuse to get their way, and wait for Donald Trump to come down hard on immigrants, Muslims, people of color, women, and the left. We must stand for a world of diversity and equity. We must stand for a world based on love and justice, not fear. We must stand for a celebration of each other’s differences, not segregation and ignorance. We must stand against racism, Islamophobia, sexism, and all forms of oppression. We call on people of conscience to protest and help send a message to the Trump Administration and his followers: We are better than this, and we will never accept this hate in our nation’s capital.”
With Inauguration Day coming in 3 days, the left has escalated the rhetoric and put on their best ball gown fitted with the epitaph of Karl Marx to bring about their brand of revolution. Progressives see that America has to be fundamentally transformed at all cost which requires the legitimacy of its institutions challenged, the relevance of the republican system we are governed by, and the usefulness of the law of the land that defines it: the U.S. Constitution.
