“Nobody is Above the Law!”

I’m currently watching the Mueller Hearing. (072419)

There is a refrain from the Socialist Party that “Nobody is Above the Law!”
I agree.
However, what strikes me as odd is every time I hear the above talking point offered up by the disloyal opposition a voice in my head screams “Hillary Clinton!”  I can’t decide if this is intentional on the part of the Democrat Socialists or not.  It’s not possible I’m the only person in America who hears it.

Insult to injury, the former Students for Democratic Socialism are also focus group testing the line “Anyone else committing such acts would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the Law!”

Well, once again I agree.

But here I am hearing that same voice offering up “Hillary Clinton!”

I realize the Socialism Now! crowd has come to tire of the Clintons, but is this a concerted effort to go after them indirectly?  It certainly seems this way.

What is crystal clear to me regarding this hearing, while befuddled, incoherent and at times contradictory, is it’s a foreshadowing of events to come.  There is a lot of information which we clearly do not have.  I for one welcome further investigation and even impeachment proceedings.  This is a deep rabbit hole and none of it looks good for the ‘ANTIFA is Good‘ folks of the Democrat Party.

This is fun stuff.

China Needs Hong Kong to just keep doing Hong Kong

Now more than ever China needs Hong Kong to remain an engine of Capitalism.
We’ve talked before about Socialist Countries existing at the teat of Capitalist Countries. Socialism cannot create wealth.  Nothing has changed.
When China took control of Hong Kong in 1997 it was widely thought the Socialist country would quickly destroy all that made Hong Kong prosperous. Many believed, with good reason, that the oppressive, individual hating, top-down governing ideology would not be able to tolerate the freedom and individual liberty associated with Hong Kong.
Surprising the world, China instead chose to isolate Hong Kong from the rest of the country. It was a brilliant move by horrible people.  China held Hong Kong as an asset in its ‘portfolio’ with the realization that the prosperity Hong Kong created was essential to the perpetuation of China’s oppressive Socialist Ideology.
Don’t be fooled… Hong Kong remained an irritant to many of the Elitist Chinese Politicians. But economically it was a sound decision if it was the life of the oppressive, human hating, Chinese Socialist ‘Utopia’ which ultimately mattered. Those 1997 Autocrats in waiting were on the precipice of unimaginable wealth to be gleaned from a relatively new trade partnership with the United States. The full absorption of Hong Kong could wait a little while until a new engine of wealth was fully realized…
Fast forward to 2019…
The overt move to bring Hong Kong ‘into the fold’ of China’s Democratic Socialist Dictatorship has been underway for a little over a decade.  But a disruption, an Orange Swan if you will, occurred which turned the finely set table over.

Suddenly something changed.

The people of Hong Kong rediscovered their value when the prettiest girl in the room decided she ‘ain’t got no sugar’.
China’s ‘new’ engine of wealth, the United States, decided not to play anymore.  Hong Kong was back!
This move alone has thrown China’s long term plans into question.
Why?

To reiterate…

The resistance from the United States to the contemporary trade agreements with China has provided Hong Kong with the ability to resist… making Hong Kong important once again. China once again needs them… badly…

China’s long term existence is questionable, at best, without the United States and is certainly headed for a catastrophe without both the United States and Hong Kong combined.

This is an important Global event and deserves all of our attention.


The Comfortably Dumb

Hello….

Is there anybody in there?

Just Nod if you can hear me.

Is there Anyone at home?

React.  You need no information First.

Just the basic feels, can you tell me where it hurts?

There is no fact you are receiving.

No distant learning on the horizon.

You are only coming through in waves, your lips move but you don’t know what you’re saying.

When you were a child, you had a Fever.  You thought the Great Big World was not Fair… Now you’ve got that feeling once again, you steadfastly refuse to understand…. that your Socialist Utopia is a sham.

Youuuuuuu…  Have become… Comfortably Dumb.

This post is from 2017… but with the advent of AOC, I thought it interesting to remind all of us of two things.

  1.  The Democrats Created the Mares which are eating their own. 
  2.  If there was ever a testament as to why a Parent should Never Send Their Child to any institute of “higher” learning… it’s AOC.  She is truly a glowing example of the educated ignorant.  So very comfortably dumb…

Both of the above facts make me smile for a number of different reasons, not the least of which is the honesty that the Democrat Party, and a sad number of Republicans, have been withholding from all of us for so very long.  AOC, the self-styled love child of Eva Peron and Frida Khalo, IS the Democrat Party.  She is Norman Thomas.  She is the Petulant Lenin.  She is She is the conversation democrats have been having behind closed doors since Chicago ’68… she is what they have always believed.  She is Honest.  She is Ridiculous, and possibly Dangerous to every human on the planet, but Honest.

AOC, like all of her Socialist predecessors have been convinced that Marx has just been misunderstood.  Socialism simply has not been orchestrated correctly.  Mao didn’t do it right… Mussolini didn’t do it right… Stalin didn’t do it right… Hitler didn’t do it right… Pol Pot didn’t do it right… Chavez did it right but the Venezuelans are stupid… etc. etc. etc.

Don’t take her seriously at your own risk…

So on with the previous post…

No Sh*t, there I was… well, not directly in harm’s way but kinda like I was there.  Sorta.  An associate and I decided to go down to our local University to see Milo Yiannopoulos.  It turned out my friend made it and I did not.  What do you do?  However, during the stroll through, around and inside the protests, my friend had a chance to ask some questions of our best and brightest.  Keep in mind, these folks are our future…

(He was also texting me video files of what was happening.  It was classic.  If you want to see who Milo is and don’t yet know, I suggest the youtube.  He also has a MyFace page.)

My favorite was a video of protesters smashing their faces against a large bank of windows and shouting inane slogans about fascism while demanding Milo not be allowed to speak.  (If any one of these screaming University attendees had been taught critical thinking their heads would have exploded from the level of cognitive dissonance.  that is the only thing which could have made these videos better.)  All this was occurring while my associate laughed in the comfortable confines of a largely empty hallway.  It had overtones of a B-movie zombie franchise.  Hilarious!

But the title of this little diddy comes from a question my Friend asked one of the Useful.  (Post updated to include one of New York’s newest Representatives.)

Clandestine Operative:  Have you read, or seen, anything by Milo?  Like on Facebook, or his columns?

Female Protesting Something:  No!  I don’t want to legitimize his Hate!

Hahaahhaaaaahahahaaahaaaaa! Now that’s Learning!  Her parents must be proud!  I hope they’re spending a crap load of money for that education… although I suspect it’s student loans she and her parents will expect the rest of us to pay off.

I wonder what it would have been like to try this on my professors… “Ah, No Dr. Rossi, I did not read the Mein Kampf assignment because I Refuse to Legitimize Hitler’s Hate!”  Or, better yet, “Lenin!?  No Way!  You can shove all his writings right up your a**!”  Or may be “Gandhi?  Gandhi!?  That Child molester?  I refuse to read a word he wrote.  If you try to make me I’ll report you to the Dean!  Fascist!”  (I added that last bit for dramatic contemporary-foolish-college-student effect even though I personally knew what it meant then and would not have employed it out of context.  I most likely would have called him a Communist.)

Anyway…

If you don’t know who Milo is I recommend checking him out.  I predict he will be a bit much for most of you, but I think he may be borderline genius.  I had a Russian professor once upon a time who had similar mannerisms when he lectured, and I suspect similar tastes in men, who I still believe was brilliant to the nth degree.  But I digress.  Listen to what Milo is saying… wave off the super gay theatrics.  It’s his angle.  Don’t get me wrong, he will be the first to tell you he’s super gay, but his point is “Who Cares!?”, being Gay shouldn’t automatically make you a Useful Idiot.  And that’s a good point.  And that’s why they Hate Him.

(My apologies to Messrs. Gilmore and Waters)


Barium Memo

Once upon a time in a land with 13 different time zones, a bunch of Horrid Socialists would employ a tactic to determine where and how secrets were leaked…

The Barium Memo.

A specific document was coated with a radioactive isotope and disseminated within a group of suspected leakers. Later the security services would sweep the offices, homes, vehicles, spouses, children, neighbors, park benches, trash cans, supermarket aisles (ha… just a joke… there were no supermarkets. It’s a Socialist Utopia, there were ‘ques’.), etc. etc.

The ‘security’ services were able to figure out who and how information was passed to interested outside parties.

The offending party was then escorted to a Socialist Utopian Hotel Room located in the basement of the Lubyanka… not quite as nice as a Trump hotel…

Here in the United States, we decided that slowing contaminating human beings with radiation should be kept to a minimum, at least. So we adopted what I have now renamed the “BuzzFeed Memo”.

This is the same tactic except for different versions of the story are passed to various suspected parties and then the authorities wait to see where those versions end up.  The trick is it has to be interesting enough to outside parties for them to run with it before any verification can be made. Those interested parties must be willing to act… immediately… haphazardly… for fear they might lose the first place position in what they consider a race for their livelihood.

1.  The information must be explosive.

2.  The information must confirm the interested party’s bias.

3.  The information must support their established agenda.

It appears that Robert Mueller’s Special Council tired of the semi-accurate leaks emanating from his investigation. It seems clear… to me… that erroneous information was passed to certain suspected leakers within the investigation to find the where and how.

It would not shock me that those individuals will find themselves now separated from the investigation… whether it is made public is another question… but given the Council’s quick response to the BuzzFeed story and BuzzFeed’s reporters ‘standing by’ the information, there is little else it could be.

The Memo illustrates the Fake in News, but it also further demonstrates the complete and total take-over of our media outlets by more, newer, horrid Socialists.

All of this is a result of the steady dose of Trump Serum administered to the Media over the last 3-years… and it must continue as we need these people to tell us directly who they are so the American People can understand the poison they represent.

The best part? Think with a Smile… there is an office where sits a lawyer attached to the FBI Special Council Investigation, head in hands, Sh*tting their pants.

It is a Good Day.


“The European Model”

Unfortunately Not the European Model we will be Talking About.

It’s difficult to think up a good conspiracy theory anymore.
Just when I have crafted something particularly devious and sinister then sugar coat it with ‘best intentions’ so it goes down the throats of “have a go” commenters…
It turns out to be, well, True.
What is an Drunken Evil Genius supposed to do when all of his work is being pre-empted by cheap HB-1 Visa holders in Silicon Valley?
Woe is me…

Alas, one of my favorites sites alerted me to a Google Presentation on Good Censorship.

Let me qualify first that I’m a free market kind of guy. I’m more Libertarian than anything else and will often side with the Dregs and Deplorables of our Republic.  What I’m about to point out does not mean I think regulation is a viable answer… but it does mean I find removing every penny of my tax dollars from the hands of private companies should be on every table.  Enough of that.

After pouring a stout cup of Cafe Bustelo (It should always be Strong, Black, Burnt and Bitter like my Women) I began going through the ‘leaked’ presentation.

It was Horrifying.  I had to add another shot of bourbon to my coffee.

We have talked about Conspiracy Theories here in the past.  This overt move by Google is astonishing… and as we have seen over the last decade with other supposed ‘tin foil hat’ stuff… now provable.

What struck me was not the idea Google was ‘editing’, but rather the idea they found brilliance in what they described as “The European Model”.

In essence, the Presentation offers that the United States pursues Freedom and Liberty which allows horrible things to happen.  In other words, Freedom and Liberty allow for things to happen that the majority of Leftists over at Google don’t like or agree with.

Instead, they propose – and are moving on, ‘Freedom must be Sacrificed for Civility’ and ‘Liberty must be Sacrificed for Dignity’.

Holy Carp!

The folks at Google don’t like the whole Freedom thing because it can’t be controlled… BY DEFINITION.  Stupid Freedom gets in the way of Forcing America into the ‘United World Union of Democratic Socialist Utopians’ – UWUDSU (pronounced ‘you-wood-sue’).  Sorry… it’s that extra shot in my coffee.  Anyway…

How can this be?  Real People can’t truly believe that Socialism works…

Well, I’m not sure how much more evidence you need.  There are basically two types of ‘Real People’ at play here.  The first group is too ignorant or delusional, intentionally or unintentionally, to know the Poison of Socialism.  They, of course, consider themselves members of next group…  (That is until the next group actually secures full control over things.  Then the first group’s lack of membership is made clear often with Starvation, Jail Cells, quickly dug Trenches etc.)

Regarding the second Group, it has been experienced throughout the history of mankind that certain groups of individuals will believe themselves to be anointed philosopher kings and will charge themselves with ‘protecting’ the rest of us from… ourselves.  (Enter Google who is busy giving voice to the Elitist A-Hole position that the unwashed cannot be given the responsibility to determine what is Civil and what is Dignified on their own.)

As we have stated before, an Elitist looks at you and says:

“When you are presented with a decision the only thing we can count on you doing is making the wrong one.” – Elitist A-Hole

This is why they secure positions of power via election, censorship or arms to make sure they can make it for you.

In their minds you should be Thanking them, seriously.  They think you should be writing them Thank You cards… and, of course, paying them lots and lots of your tax payer dollars.

But let’s place the Elitist A-holes on the sideline for a moment and talk about the idea of a “European Model” the United States is supposed to longingly emulate.

The European Model is one of Monarchy, Imperialism, Colonialism, War, Oppression, Slavery, Strict Class Stasis and codified Civility/Dignity in order to make sure those Class Lines were never to be crossed.  The EU Model is one of Blood and Genocide. It’s one of Cultural Eradication.  It has been built upon a belief of Divine Blood Lines.  So corrupt was its history that the ‘New Socialist European Model’ appeared attractive by comparison.  Sadly it was just another ploy by a Disenfranchised Aristocracy seeing the Death of the Feudal System that had kept them in place.  (Read the origins of the International Soviet, the London School of Economics, Engels, Hegel, Marx, Plato, Dewey, Lenin and the Fabian Socialists to start.)  And to the delight of that what could have been the former ruling class, aka ‘the rich folks who ran things but were hoisted upon pitch forks’, the population fell for it, all except those in the American Colonies who watched intently what was happening with the European Model and opted out.  I relaize this is a big expanse of time and a cogent argument could be attempted that most of the ‘intellectuals’ associated with Socialism found their fame in the 1800’s.  But the roots of this idea had been laid for hundreds of years prior to what is considered the ‘revolutionary’ period.  (Speaking of famous revolutions… France Tried but chased Equality instead of Liberty and ended up with Members on Mission.  those were the guys hauling the Guillotine from town to town.  Portable Social Justice.)

We, the United States, chose to pursue Freedom and Liberty rather that Civility, Dignity and Equality as the latter three would always require a Divine Administrator to Govern.

“If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In forming a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” —James Madison, The Federalist No. 51

We had closely watched the horrors associated with Elitists in Europe telling the Masses what they were Free to do and what they were not Free to do.

We decided we could defend our Individual Freedom and Liberty without a Permanent Class of Ruling Elitist A-Holes deciding for us what we can decide for ourselves…

In the mid 1700’s We opted out of the EU Model.  We determined the act of petitioning the King with gifts in order to win approval for one’s personal choices gave the King too much power.  We opted out of Regressive, Re-packaged, Return to Feudalism that the illusion of Democracy within a nascent Socialist Paradigm promised… but designed intentionally to never deliver.

We said Enough!

…An then dressed up like Indians and threw a Tea Party on a Boat.

Google says… we should get back to that Oppression Stuff!

Let that sink in.

The only aspect of this piece of garbage presentation I admire is the assertion these changes need to be made in order for Google to expand.  Why?  Because it’s the only rational and honest statement made as it embraces the Evil.  The Raw truth this statement represents is the recognition of a very real War going on and between those of us who Believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and Those that Do Not.  So Google is saying if you want to do business with those that Do Not… it’s time to censor, oppress and suppress those that do.   (Historically this leads to the Death and Destruction of the very society these delusional people believe they are promoting.  It’s not Debatable… it’s Demonstrable.  Can you imagine this argument being made today in regards to Slavery?  It’s the same argument… except almost everyone are the Slaves.)

We are here now.  Who would have thought?

Google should start a new marketing campaign; Forward Oppression!  I think the ANTIFA-Fascists would just Love it.  (Has anyone else noticed the ANTIFA-Fascist flag is Red, White and Black.  Odd choice of colors… or maybe not.)

So whip off your Tin Foil Propeller Beanie and craft something a bit more elaborate… another Conspiracy Theory has died at the altar of Socialism.  There is still hope for the aluminum clad crowd… 5G is coming.


Awake… Arise… Or Be Forever Fallen!

So there I was, Minding my own Scotch… and I get a message from X.  In the most perfunctory way possible he made clear it was time for me to dig myself out from the secure comfort I’ve been enjoying and return to the fray.

Well… Fine!

Who am I to disagree?

I have to say right up front, it has been an exciting few months.  From the ANTIFA-Facists to the complete fabrication of accusations used to slime a man who is far better than I, the Theater of the Absurd never ends.

The timeliness of X’s prompt is exquisite.  It just so happened that I was struck by something so profoundly stupid that I was seriously considering putting my drink down.  So let’s go there first…

A Gentleman by the name of Ruchir Sharma said the following on what used to be a go to network for business news;

“We may or may not believe in [American exceptionalism], but the financial markets have never believed in it to such an extent,” added Sharma, head of emerging markets and chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.”

Please read that again real quick.

So…

I would ask Mr. Sharma what American Exceptionalism has to do with a booming economy?  If he is speaking to Property Rights and the influx of foreign investment which is recognizing the United States as a Safe Haven for their wealth, then okay… maybe… but I’m not sure he is.  I believe he is conflating the financial success of the current economic reforms, which are returning the United States to its position as the World Leading Economic Engine, with Freedom and Liberty of the Individual.  I would then remind Mr. Sharma that it is the latter which constitutes “American Exceptionalism”.

Why is this such a big deal?

It’s a big friggin’ deal because the Socialist Democrats have been diligently dumbing down our population for decades in the hopes ‘educated’ individuals like Mr. Sharma will intentionally or unintentionally continue to do their work for them.  Sadly, they have been very, very, successful.

However, in his defense let’s assume Mr. Sharma knows what American Exceptionalism is.  Now let’s take the beginning of his assertion… “We may or may not believe in [American Exceptionalism]…”.  I then have to ask who it is that does not believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual?  You speak as if you know or this opening qualification would not be necessary.

Yes, yes… I know these people are out there Hammering away at the Malleable Proletariat but I like to have them on the record so we all know who they are which is why I ask.  (One of the reasons I’ve been hiding out around the Barnes and Noble in Tyson’s Corner, aside from all the TOTALLY COMMON and super awesome Gang Rape Parties that EVERYONE has ALL THE TIME around the short hop to Bethesda, is watching how Trump’s mere existence is bringing these Socialist Democrat A-holes out into the open.)

So Who is it, Mr. Sharma, that does not believe in American Exceptionalism?  Who is it exactly that does not believe in the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and the power inalienable rights has unleashed upon the World propelling the United States to the most powerful country on Earth in just a short few hundred years?  Who are these people who believe a person’s rights are bestowed upon them by Government made up of fallible, elitist, narcissistic beings and not God… or the Universe… or simply because they Exist?

Who?

Name names…

It’s okay, Mr. Sharma, I know you can’t do this for several of reasons.  1.)  You may be one of those people.  2.)  You like your paid gig and wish to keep it by specifically not offending those fallible, narcissistic elitists who employ you.  3.)  Both 1 and 2.

So allow me to say what I’m hoping you meant to say.

The Current Economic Boom occurring in The United States is substantially due to the removal of barriers upon the Engine of Capitalism which were erected by Socialist Scum as they believe it’s not ‘Fair’ that Free (er) Markets are so damned successful and restraining them is the only hope for their foolish Command and Control Economic Idiocy to catch up.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure that’s what you wanted to say…

You’re Welcome.

Now we wait for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg to retire and the ensuing melt down.

The Left is the proverbial ‘drowning man’… it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Next!


Happy May Day!

A Brief History of Big Labor (AFL now AFL-CIO) and the Socialist Party USA.

The Relationship between Marxist Socialism and Fascism, both Statist Governing Theories.

This is a brief history lesson… put the beer down for a couple of minutes.

Originally published 1932.  (Keep in mind that a mere 30-years later came the 1960’s radicals… who today hold positions of power within our Government.) Found at: http://www.marxists.org

The A. F. of L. Becomes Fascist

Over 40 years ago on Union Square, New York, the leaders of the first May Day demonstration spoke not only about the 8-hour day but about the abolition of the capitalist system. “While struggling for the 8-hour day we will not lose sight of the ultimate aim, – the abolition of the wage system,” read the resolution presented to the striking masses assembled at Union Square on May First, 1890, after they had marched there in great columns under unfurled red banners through the working class sections of the metropolis. Now, the A. F. of L. and the Socialist Party make common cause with the bosses and are doing everything possible to prevent the workers from fighting for any improvement in their conditions, and instead of fighting for the abolition of the capitalist system are fighting to preserve it.

Over 40 years ago, the A. F. of L. appealed to the International Socialist Congress in Paris to help the American Federation of Labor with the strike movement inaugurated for May First, 1890, and the International came to the aid of the American workers by making this struggle an international one. Now, President Green and his satellite Mathew Well pledge the support of the A. F. of L. to each and every reactionary organization or movement formed for the purpose of combating the Communist Party which is carrying on the American fighting traditions of May First. The A. F. of L. leaders have developed from class collaborationists into open fascists, serving the capitalists as hangmen of the American working class.

In their attempt to defeat May Day and to draw the workers’ organizations which are under their influence away from participation in May Day demonstrations, the A. F. of L. and other reactionary labor organizations have fostered the observance of a so-called Labor Day on the first Monday in September of each year. Labor Day was adopted first on a local scale in 1885 and later granted by the various state governments as an antidote to May First celebrations.

Another campaign against May Day was inaugurated by the federal government with the aid of A. F. of L. leaders when May 1 was adopted as Child Health Day. The hypocrisy of both the government and the A. F. of L. is proven by the fact that a million and more children under 16 are sweated in American mills, shops and fields for the glory of American capital.

The real meaning of this sudden interest in child welfare, however, may be gleaned from the following reference to the subject in a report submitted by the Executive Council to the 1928 Convention of the A. F. of L.:

… The Communists still maintain May 1 as Labor Day. Hereafter May 1 will be known as Child Health Day, as the President is directed by the resolution passed by Congress to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe May 1 as Child Health Day. The object is to create sentiment for year-round protection of the health of children. It is a most worthy purpose. At the same time May 1 no longer will be known as either strike day or Communist Labor Day. (Italics mine – A. T.)

Can it be that the A. F. of L. leaders have not heard the story about King Canute and his attempt to sweep back the tempestuous ocean waves? Or is it that in their eagerness to break the fighting spirit of the workers they are willing to try anything?

The Social-Fascism of the S. P.

The betrayal of the workers begun during the war was continued by the Socialist parties after the war. They joined bourgeois governments to protect them from the wrath of the workers; they organized counter-revolutions to thwart the workers’ struggle for power; they became the butchers of the militant sections of the working class which were fighting for the overthrow of the rule of capital, just as the workers of Russia have done under the leadership of the Bolsheviks, the Party of Lenin. The social-patriotism of the Right and the social-pacifism of the Center during the war, have now been merged into social-fascism. The social-fascists have become part of the capitalist state machine, protecting it from the revolutionary actions of the workers and peasants in the imperialist and colonial countries. They call for war against the Soviet Union and organize plots designed to arrest the progress of building Socialism there. They support the war being waged against the Chinese people by Japanese imperialism and the seizure of Manchuria as an eastern base for attacking the Soviet Union.

They have long ago abandoned the demand for the 8-hour day. They hope that the League of Nations will secure for them the shorter workday through conventions between capitalist governments. The Marseilles Congress of the Second International in 1925 declared that the 8-hour day “should be recognized only in principle.” They still participate in May Day events, but only on the other side of the barricades, as was exemplified by the fiendish actions of the Socialist Chief of Police of Berlin, Zoergiebel, against the May Day, 1929, demonstrations in the working class sections of that city. In the 1932 presidential elections, the Social-Democracy backed the Bruening fascist government by supporting the re-election of Hindenburg.

The “Socialist” Prime Minister MacDonald sends troops to mow down the Hindu masses who are rising against British imperialism and its agents in India. Wherever capitalism has felt weak to cope with the rising tide of the revolutionary and national liberation movements of the workers and peasants, it has called to its service the Socialist parties, willing agents of capitalism within the labor movement, to help defeat these movements.

In the United States, the Socialist Party plays the same role. Although it is not in office, it has already earned its spurs in the business of betraying the best aspirations and interests of the workers. It joins all reactionary forces who are vilifying the Soviet Union and are trying to whip up sentiment for war upon the workers’ republic. It works with the A. F. of L. and the Muste “progressive” labor unions in hounding militant workers, in supporting the bosses against the workers, in applauding the forces of the state when they prosecute and persecute the revolutionary movement of this country. The old leaders of the S. P. (the Hillquits and Oneals) have forsaken whatever Socialism they ever believed in and the new leaders (the Thomases and Brouns) are bourgeois liberals who use the labor movement to advance the programs and the policies of the Theodore Roosevelts of the Bull Moose days and the Robert LaFollettes whose aim has always been to fool the masses with radical shibboleths.

Norman Thomas, the darling of the capitalist press, announces to the world in a recent book that he has brought forth a new kind of socialism, a socialism without Marxism. It has been tried before. An abler man than Thomas, Eduard Bernstein, tried to de-Marxianize Socialism more than thirty years ago. He knew better, however, than to go as far as Thomas goes in his claims. The German pioneer in this he’d only wanted to “correct” Marx, to “bring him up to date.” The American, Thomas, knows no halfway measures. He not only “revises” Marx, but abolishes him altogether, without, however, injuring Socialism thereby, as S. P. leaders declare.

Norman Thomas and the class-collaborationist Socialist Party which he represents today perhaps better than anyone else, stand exposed before the workers of this country as the betrayers and open enemies of the only Socialism that means workers’ rule, the Socialism of Marx and Lenin, the Socialism for which the Communist Party fights, the Socialism that is being built by the victorious workers and peasants in the Soviet Union today.

Revolutionary Traditions of American Labor

The American labor movement is rich in revolutionary traditions upon which the Communist Party and the Trade Union Unity League can draw in their work of organizing the American working class for revolutionary action. The great labor struggles which dot the history of the United States, bear testimony to the militancy of the American workers. Not only have the workers been ready to initiate struggles or accept provocations of the bosses, but when out on strike, they have stayed out long and fought bitterly against the combined forces of bosses and the minions of the State.

A labor movement which can look back to the general strike movements of 1877 and 1886, to Homestead (1892), to the A. R. U. Strike (1894), to Lawrence (1912), to the Steel Strike (1919), to Seattle (1919), to the many strikes in the coal, railroad, clothing and other industries, to the great struggles in Colorado, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, the Mesaba Range and, more recently, to Gastonia and Harlan, can also look forward to still greater struggles in the future. With the prevailing objective conditions – constantly deepening economic crisis, growing permanent unemployment, intensified exploitation through speed up methods, acceleration of imperialist rivalries leading to another world war, the American Labor movement, freed of its misleaders, will give an account of itself. The massacre by Ford police of four Detroit auto workers at an unemployed demonstration before his plant, the murder of Negro jobless in Chicago and Cleveland are evidences of the sharpening class struggle and the militancy of the workers.

Remember, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.  Ideological infighting is always present between Statists.  It’s a matter of who gets to Control you.

But when it comes to Free-Market Capitalism which protects the Natural Freedom and Liberty of the Individual… it is always the enemy of both flavors of Statism and they will always find communal ground in their effort to do away with it.

And You, in believing you have that Natural Right and subscribe to a bottom up Governing Theory, are the Enemy.

Happy May Day!
