The Totalitarian agenda of the Democracy Initiative

The Progressive Movement has an iron grip on the nation. From Academia, the entertainment industry and politics, the Progressive narrative is the established norm. This grip on the nation goes beyond the Obama Regime and OFA. Groups such Center for American Progress, Labor Unions, Environmental groups and other activist groups are the bas3 of this power. They are now banding together under the Democracy Initiative. The goal is to destroy the Right and create permanent Progressive rule.

Matthew Continetti, one of my favorite writers, wrote an eye opener last week, “‘A Conspiracy so Immense’: ideological commitment and the timidity of pragmatic politics”, too late for me to discuss in my column. It is one of the most important stories you’ll ever read anywhere and shows how far behind conservatives are in the fight against “progressive ” ideologues.

He picks up on a report by Andy Kroll in Mother Jones about a coordinated effort by about 36 different interest groups with reported revenues of no less than $1.69 billion, pledging millions of dollars to work together to attack conservative supporters and organizations, to intervene directly in Democratic politics, to push for filibuster reform to better enable a push through their agenda without any input from the opposition, and expanding “voting rights” and fighting voter registration laws to further grease the skids for their legislative agenda.

The group’s organizers are Michael Brune, formerly director of the radical Rainforest Action Network, and presently director of the Sierra Club , Phil Radford, head of Greenpeace, Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America and Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP.

All of this is taking place with no comment by the media — which like their counterparts in academia, Hollywood. Silicon Valley (and unfortunately too many big corporations) — are ideological partners in “progressivism”.

[....]

“The AFL-CIO, the Center for American Progress, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Color of Change, Common Cause, Demos, the Friends of the Earth, the League of Conservation Voters, Mother Jones (in a “non-editorial” capacity!), National People’s Action, the National Wildlife Federation, People for the American Way, the Piper Fund, Public Campaign, the Service Employees International Union, the United Auto Workers, and Voto Latino. Brune of the Sierra Club predicts there will be 50 participating organizations by spring.”

The media is part of this Progressive plot to create a one party nation and the goal in the next few cycles is the destruction of the Republican Party. That is why it’s imperative for the GOP to create an apparatus to match the Leftist structure as Progressives are laying the groundwork for a totalitarian one party state.

    I agree, but it can’t just be the GOP. Manyof our enemy’s organizations are outside of the Democrat Party. Likewaise, we need to form coalitions of similarly minded Right-wing groups to combat them. It would be nice if we could get the NRA involved, but they take a non-partisan approach to their issue. It doesn’t help there that the GOP as a whole have been lukewarm defenders of the Second Amendment. Above all we need a change in the leadership of the Republican Party. Politics is War, and these people don’t get that. They are concerned with winning not so much to pass an ideological agenda as to get the best offices in the Capitol. The Democrats are waging war to urtterly destroy us, while we act as though politice were beanbag. We need generals who are focused on winning.


  2. 2 | January 22, 2013 7:39 am

    It’d take big money & big commitment from those of us on the right to stand up to the moonbat leftists funding this group. People like the Koch & DeVos families on the money side, groups like Heritage Foundation, and prominent conservative faces like Col. West.

    Let’s hope we’re able to take a stand against these nutcases who want to destroy the institutions that made America great, and reduce us to virtual slavery to bureaucrats.


  3. 3 | January 22, 2013 8:03 am

    We need to understand that Obama is no Clinton; Clinton was willing to compromise and take credit, albeit undeservedly for the results. I could live with that, as long as we were going where we needed to go.

    Obama, on the other hand, has mobilized the Left to demand it all. Give them early abortions and they’ll TAKE third trimester abortions. Give them regs on extended rifle magazines and they’ll TAKE entire classes of weapons from the shelves. Give the modest tax increases on the wealthiest, they’ll TAKE deeper and broader tax increases in the near future. Give them your trust that that they’ll reduce spending in the future, they’ll TAKE increased spending in the present, as well as the future.

    His second inaugural address was no less than a triumphal Lefist manifesto; he’s flush with power and his foot soldiers are brimming with confidence, not that they can WIN the argument, but they can discredit and thus eliminate their opposition; as Rodan said above, to create “a one party nation”.

    I can think of nothing as Un-American than the systematic and dishonest discrediting of opposing viewpoints, and that’s precisely what we’re seeing.


  4. 4 | January 22, 2013 8:19 am

    @ Iron Fist:

    We’re no longer engaged in simple politics, Obama has returned to his roots of “community organizing” and has become a full time Social Justice Demagogue and Middle America’s worst nightmare.

    The “fundamental transformation” is well underway and I’m not so sure that anything short of a cataclysmic crisis such as the “Great Depression” will break Obama’s Svengali-like hold on the American consciousness at-large.

    @ Iron Fist:

    It would be nice if we could get the NRA involved, but they take a non-partisan approach to their issue.

    You know, there were many reasons for the American Revolution. Probably the best remembered is “no taxation without representation.” But keep in mind what started the actual fighting. An attempt to confiscate weapons and ammunition. Taxation, representation, and a host of other issues caused speeches, protests, demonstrations, letters to paliament, etc. But attempts to confiscate weapons and ammunition caused Americans to start shooting.

    History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does stutter…

    Canadian analysis of the Inaugural speech.

    Got to love this tidbit at the end of the article:

    An hour after his speech, Obama emailed his supporters in the grass roots movement Organizing for Action, that, “Now it’s time to finish what we started — let’s get going.”


  7. 7 | January 22, 2013 8:52 am

    @ Mike C.:

    Yep, Obama and the Dems are playing with fire on this one. Obama thinks he’ll demagog the issue and win, but I am not so certain. The peopel buying all the guns and ammunition right now aren’t buying them with the intent of turning them over (or even registering them) just because Obama says so. If the Dems in the Senate back his play, they will lose big-time in 2014. And if the Republicans in the House roll over for him, it’ll be time for a new party. I don’t think they are going to play nicely with him on this one, though. If Obama thinks gun control is the issue to break the Republican Party with, he hasn’t been paying attention. Which he may not have been. He has a lot ogf the Sun King in him. He doesn’t see the little people. They are supposed to dance to his tune,not he to theirs.

    The allusions to Lincoln are painfully ironic. Where Lincoln kept the Union intact, Obama seems hellbent on aggravating every fault line in our society; racial, economic and ethnic, and exploiting them toward his own political ends.

    He’s giving every indication that he either wants open conflict in the streets, or he’s willing to endure such conflict in order to achieve his political goals…….which is essentially the same thing.

    Folks,

    I don’t know if this is the way this is done but here goes.

    MacDuff mentioned the administration’s attempt to tear the country apart.

    I posted a link (admittedly the first one is faulty) by Sultan Knish that the country has already “settled” itself apart.

    Now you folks who live in Obamerica may disagree and I think that you should speak up.

    I myself live in the ‘burbs and work in the city which is fairly standard practice. I guess my question is if Obamerica can be turned around or should it be abandoned like Detroit, Camden, and so many other urban hell holes?


  10. 10 | January 22, 2013 9:25 am

    @ unclassifiable:

    I saw your link on the previous thread; excellent! Personally, I’m not at all sure Obamerica can be turned around. Had Obama chosen to “speak hard truths” as the piece said, we had a shot, but he rather chose demagoguery. For me, this choice, in itself, betrayed his ends.


  11. 11 | January 22, 2013 9:25 am

    @ Iron Fist:

    Yup and the GOP doesn’t get that. Another disturbing thing I read was a tweet by Robert Costa. Republican leaders are convinced that Obama is just a one time phenomenon. They really still do not realize what they are up against.

    @ unclassifiable:

    Look at a map of the last presidential election by district. This isn’t the 1860s. There’s no broad geographical divides, for the most part. The blue and the red are thoroughly mixed.

    This is likely to get very ugly indeed…

    @ Mike C.:

    Well I think Greenfield is illustrating a very old divide between urban and non-urban America. I am sure there are notable exceptions but his statistics are startling.
    I would like to think that Conservative/Libertarian people are producers and that is what is there primary focus. Also when you say that you want the government out of your business you tend to stay away from it and its handmaiden, politics.

    That is a huge handicap against the professional political agitators that the Democrats/Left have.

    I think Koch and DeVos have a pretty good idea and maybe if we can get some voluntary enactment of “civic duty time” with other businesses perhaps we can get this turned around.

    Obama Advisor: Our Political System Isn’t ‘Worthy’ of Obama and the Opportunity He Presents

    By DANIEL HALPER

    President Barack Obama’s communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, says that our political system isn’t “worthy” of Obama and the opportunity the president presents. He made the remarks the Washington Post.

    “There’s a moment of opportunity now that’s important,” Pfeiffer tells the paper. “What’s frustrating is that we don’t have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.”

    Debauchery has been around since the beginning of time. We never had nor will we ever have this sin free Religious Utopia you dream of. Jesus himself said God’s kingdom is not of the earth. Trying to create a perfect society is a Marxist concept, not a Conservative one.

    As for the free stuff argument, keep up with that attitude. I know it makes Conservatives feel better as to why they lose elections, but it’s a false premise. But I’m done arguing with your kind about this. I’m just going to sit back and watch you lose election after election. Eventually you will get it, but it will take a few more defeats before it sinks in.

    How do you defeat an opponent?

    1) Exploit divisions. Hipsters will not venture into the ghetto.

    2) Exploit weakness. Ghetto public schools are disgraceful. Can an alternative be offered?

    3) Make them fight on ground not of their choosing. Difficult. They have managed to polarize society so that they are not on “our ground” but we continually come to theirs. To establish ground of our choosing we have to have our museums, our art, our literature. This is a “long march” issue.

    4) Project weakness when you have strength and project strength when you have weakness — subterfuge. Well the media is actually helping us in this regard because they are already pissing on our graves. We are still here so… (maybe Boehner has a point with the crying – who knew).

    If the Dems win the House in 2014, it is probably all over for America. Obama and the Dems will bring the whole thing crashing down in two years of unrestricted misrule. People don’t realize what a precarious position we are in, or how irresponsible (at best) the Dems are. People think the National Debt doesn’t matter, that it can grow indefinately. That simply isn’t true. We will be in the same position Greece is in by 2020 at this rate, and there will be no one to bail us out.

    We will notice the state of our own and our loved ones’ and friend’s wellbeing.

    The growl of stomachs or the drudgery of homelessness has an effect far beyond any propaganda.

    These things should not be wished for because it is the sharpest of double-edged swords which can be wielded by demons (Hitler) or angels (Gandhi).

    But even if it gets to that point, people will still choose those that are engaged over those that are alienated even if it is the same folks who caused their plight (FDR’s third term was a good example save for the intervention of WWII).

    Remember when Horatio Alger stories were considered decent reading material?

    No Phil because I was educated at the beginning of all that Progressive experimental education garbage and have been trying to get back to that level of reading ever since.

    On one hand, we’re scratching our heads why Obama’s eating our lunch and on the other hand there’s two people on this very board making noises about either voting Libertarian (large L, I’d suppose), and another talking about just abandoning ship altogether.

    Back in November, I laid this debacle squarely at the feet of the people. Little did I know that some of those people were on this very board.

    I really don’t know if this is winnable any more, but I’m sure as hell not going to piss away my vote on some obscure candidate from a barely existent party or sit at home and boycott in the hopes of “teaching the all a lesson”. Pardon me, but that shit’s crazy as hell.

    That speech yesterday should be pissin’ everyone off, it should be motivating people to vote for ANYONE with a chance of defeating a Leftist Dem…yes, even a damned RINO. Instead, it seems to have demotivated some here.

    Geez, buck it up, people!

    @ lobo91:

    Actually, you should just vote Democrat, so you can at least get free stuff.

    Keep thinking that’s the reason people vote for the Democrats is for free stuff. Sure, there is a sizable contingent that is the reason they vote for them, but its not all of them. The Democrats have an effective propaganda machine that hides their true Totalitarian agenda of Neo-Feudalism. They pretend to be friends and protectors of various groups and mask their true aims. They use Republicans like Akins, Santorum and others as strawmen to scare voters.

    Read the article and you will see how effective and organized The Progressives are.

    Voting for the Democrats is like voting for the Nazis and Soviets.

    There is no political salvation coming, the only thing one can do is look out for yourself and those close to you.

    And if you believe that, as I said, you should just vote Democrat so you keep getting your free stuff from the government.

    Why do you think Castro or Saddam got 99% of the vote in their “elections”? There were other people on the ballot. Nobody voted for them, though, because they knew they’d be cut off.

    But it is enough to make the difference. Sandra Fluke should have been laughed at. Instead, she clearly spoke to a sizable minority of women who don’t care that they don’t have a job as long as they can make the Cathlic Church pay for their birth control. We are in as bad a shape as the Roman Empire was just before it fell. We have the barbarian hoards screaming for our blood, and people in the country are more concerned with bread and circuses (Honey Boo Boo? Really?) than they are with what their rulers are doing, and a ruling class that is every bit as bad as that that the Romans had at the end. The writing is on the wall, but we have to go down fighting.

    I’ll vote for whomever the Republican candidate is because, even at worst, it’s pretty clear that they will be to the right of a likely Democrat candidate. To do otherwise is “cutting one’s nose off to spite one’s face”. I’m a pragmatist.

    In a primary (if my state had a say, which it virtually doesn’t) that may well be a different story, depending on the slate.

    Now, I’m outta here to run errands, the days a wasting.

    Possibly why the administration hates Israel and why it’s their own fault.

    Israel’s Choices and America’s Failure

    The decision to attack Iran is Israel’s to make, not Washington’s. Israel will do what it deems in its best interests, and there is nothing the Obama administration can do at this point to change that.

    Americans have no “national” organization. There are little groups in the states, and by far a minority in those states. The states are split between those who are on our side, those wholely on the other side, and those who just want to be left alone. Without a broad and powerful national organization, doom is at hand. We’re certain to lose -- even those on our side tell us so. We have no choice but to cut the best deal we can and be thankful for whatever we can get out of that.

    BTW, that’s the early 1770s I’m describing there.

    True, but when you depend on the state for the basics of survival, they don’t even have to actively kill you. Cut off your ration card (or food stamps) and that’s pretty much it.

    I was kinda cool on it at first, but it sucked me in this season. It gets me in the same place where “24″ did in it’s early days. As for “Justified”, I’m from Louisville but I’ve been to Eastern KY a number of times and they pretty much nail it. Haven’t watched any of this season yet, it’s still on the DVR.

    Geez, we really have don’t enough time to watch all the stuff on the DVR and that’s really all we watch.

    It’s been highly recommended by a number of acquaintances, but I just never to “a round tuit”. I think I saw it on Netflix, so I may well look into it.

    Obama advocated a “Civilian” Defense Force to rival the military.
    I will not be surprised if he pursues it now.
    He is already going for gun grabbing.
    I put nothing past this guy. The Left that calls that paranoia either
    has no senses of history , or they are providing cover.

    Obama already has one.
    The Department of Homeland Security.
    Add to that force his neo-Brownshirts, aka Organizing For Action.

    With those tools in his kit Obama has what he needs to start building the New Reich.

    If the Dems in the Senate back his play, they will lose big-time in 2014

    Maybe, but so what? The Dems play the long game. They will be back again when the voters lose their sanity, and in the meantime Progressivism is, by and large, a one-way ratchet. Name an item of the Progressive agenda that has been reversed, let alone significantly slowed in growth. I can’t.
