The “purging of moderates” within the Democrat party
We have seen all of the reports that the American people spoke loud and clear. We have been told that this election was historic on so many fronts. We were told that the people demand smaller government, less taxes and, well, Conservative constitutional adherence. In all of the jubilance that the American people exhibited and the purported work to reverse the far left socialist agenda gets underway there is a side story that has not been reported – the story that the far left, radical wing of the Democrat party also won this year in historic proportions. What, you say?
We have learned well in advance of Obama’s election of his extreme radical ties and his “Marxist” roots. Since taking office we have also come to learn that the far left fringe elements of the Democrat party have taken over, or “high jacked” if you will, the party. As a result of the two dynamics just mentioned that startled and concerned the American populace resulting in a line in the being drawn in the sand forcing us to use the most powerful weapon in our arsenal to implement a reversal of change – that weapon was our votes.
The word that the Democrats have fought a public fight over in order to distance themselves from was “Socialists”. The MSM has painted those who attempted to label Democrats and the Obama agenda as a whole as Socialist have been met with resistance and scorn. Paranoia.
Then something happened, not once, but from different Elitist Democrats who boldly stepped forward to declare that yes it is Socialism at work.
The infamous Fox News interview with Al Sharpton:
REV. AL SHARPTON, CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER: I think that this is — began to transform the country the way the president had promised. This is what he ran on.
GERALDO RIVERA, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: Some argue to socialism.
SHARPTON: Well, first of all, then we'd have to say that the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected President Obama.
I wrote an article recently that outlined that 70 members of Congress have been openly identified as members of the DSA (Democrat Socialists of America).
I did not pull these names out of a hat, out of thin air but from the DSA’s own documents that boasts of this tie. Not only is the Government full of Socialists but one must read the “charter” or philosophy of this group to understand its goals and then compare these goals to what has actually transpired through the forced legislation that angered and awoken the masses to begin to reverse it course.
Once the dust started to settle on the mid-term elections and the MSM decrying the loss of the Democrats by historic proportions there was one aspect of the elections that have gone unreported -- The re-election of these 65 of these 70 hard core, anti-American congressmen and women.
As I wrote in my last article, I identified these individuals by name (taken directly from the DSA documents) in order for Americans to target with their votes. I also point out that these Anti-American politicians, who took an oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States are in breach of their promise and therefore should be impeached, if not voted out of office for this serious dereliction to their promise.
I will again, below, show these Socialists infiltrators and will highlight that not only have they been re-elected despite the “conservative” wave of voters against the socialist agenda, but have done so by huge vote margins. I provided each name with an imbedded link that will show their voting records, affiliations, speeches and most importantly – their endorsements. These endorsements are from the usual “leftist” organizations (i.e., AFL-CIO, Planned Parenthood, NEA, Brady anti-gun lobby, Sierra Club, etc) that span the entire group of 70 almost uniformly. The ones that lost re-election (4 – Alan Grayson, John Hall, Phil Hare & Carolyn Kilpatrick) curiously did not have a single endorsement from the usual organizations list above, not one.
When you take into consideration the lopsided margin of victory that these socialist enjoyed on Election Day and the fact that as a whole Conservatives routed the Democrats it makes one wonder how the hardcore socialists seemed to be the only Democrats to survive?
The answer, in my humble opinion can only be one of two reasons (or both):
1) There are pockets, or enclaves so to speak, around the country that have communists and socialists in big numbers that concentrated in populated urban areas, and or
2) The Hard Left has completed their “high-jacking” of the Democrat party and allowed those they consider to not “socialist enough”, or “too moderate” to be purged from power leaving a core socialist contingency in place.
When you consider that the House of Representatives is now down to 187 remaining Democrats (with 9 seats still undecided) it is abundantly clear that nearly 50% of those who survived have openly declared to be Socialists.
One of the hardest hit caucuses that lost in big numbers were the “moderate” Blue Dog Democrats.
The Blue Dogs proved to be troublesome early on with the Obama agenda in various stages of putting his policies in place.
It appears that the heavy lifting that has yet to happen needs to inclusive of exposure of this insidious Marxist organization that has it roots firmly in place in our political system and elsewhere. We need to keep the pressure on and inform the American public that they are there, in direct contradiction to the Constitution of the United States in which they (65 Socialist Democrats) took an oath to uphold and defend.
One last “honorable mention” for those who consider themselves “birthers” – Neil Ambercrombie (D-HI) who is one of the names mentioned in the DSA document resigned his House position in March 2010 to run for and win the Hawaii Governorship. Any hope that the birthers had in any form of cooperation with obtaining the Birth records of Barack Hussein Obama just go a little thinner.
