    Are Democrats Channeling Their Inner Lenin?......

    As we approach November 2020, Democrats are having their “October 1917” moment.


    Just as the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party back then was divided between the moderate Mensheviks and the more radical Bolsheviks, so too the modern American Democratic Party is divided between the moderate socialists like Joe Biden, Amy Klobuchar and Steve Bullock and the radical socialists like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.


    Based on what happened during the Russian Revolution a century ago, I would strongly advise Bullock and Klobuchar (and especially Tim Ryan and John Delaney) to buy bulletproof vests or seriously consider relocating to Mexico. That bought Leon Trotsky an extra 10 years before he was finally dispatched by Comrade Stalin to socialist heaven.


    Communist agitator Michael Moore, who is in large measure the theorist of the American left, told Brian Williams on MSNBC following the second debate, “Only revolution at this point is going to defeat Donald J. Trump. Only people rising up, and doing the work that needs to be done, is going to remove him from office. Our side needs to treat Trump seriously. He’s not a joke anymore. He’s the real deal and he humiliated all of us by losing the election and then being given the keys to the Oval Office.”


    Meanwhile, just as in the period between the February Revolution and the October Revolution in 1917, the “Social Democratic Labour” forces (hereinafter “the Democrats”) are turning against each other in a contest of ideological purity. That was on full display on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, when even the previously sainted Barack Obama was under attack. By the end of the second night, if he were still a saint, it must have been St. Sebastian, pierced by multiple arrows. Turns out that the signature achievement of his presidency — Obamacare — was a gift to the big bad insurance industry, and his immigration policy was a heartless betrayal of the working class. Or something like that.


    Whoever said the revolution will not be televised must not have heard about CNN. “The most trusted name in news,” as CNN bills itself, happily played the role of Pravda in promoting this mindless march toward dictatorship of the proletariat (don’t worry — it’s temporary!). The decision to let radical leftist Don Lemon play a neutral journalist during the debates added insult to injury. It was the equivalent of asking a shark to host a beach party.


    It’s hard to believe we have reached the point, nearly 30 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, where we need to take a vote on whether or not communism sucks, but sadly we do. And even worse, in some states the outcome of such a vote would be in doubt. It might not even be able to pass muster in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives......snip~

    I find such comparison offensive -- I am proud of my great-grandparents. The Revolution of 1917 brought a lot of positive change. Sadly, Jews were purged from the Party in 1930s, and USSR became Totalitarian.

    Lenin and Trotsky wanted to build a Society where everyone would have Positive Rights:

    -- Food
    -- Housing
    -- Medical Care
    -- Employment

    In 1921, under the New Economic Policy, Lenin allowed small businesses.

    Sorry, but that's a pretty hysteria riddled opinion piece that's hard to take seriously.

    No one of any consequence, nor any elected official, is calling for communism or violent revolution.
