The Consequences of The Left’s Actions: The Coming Disasters They Are Willfully Ignoring
IWB ^ | Mark Angelides

Posted on 02/17/2017 1:21:54 PM PST by davikkm

A strong political opposition is at the very heart of a healthy democracy. If the opposition is weak, we get tyrants, if the opposition is strong, we get debate, reasoning and a compromise that usually benefits the majority (or at least doesn’t disadvantage the minority). But if the opposition is merely ideological, this can lead to a disaster for a democratic state, personal freedom and will ultimately hurt the poorest and most vulnerable members of society.

The short-sightedness with which the Left are conducting themselves is dangerous to everyone. The ideology and Groupthink is setting a course from which he U.S may never fully recover.

"Yuri Bezmenov on demoralization" Interview with Yuri Bezmenov (ex-KGB) by Edward Griffin - 1984
1. Demoralization (check)
2. Destabilization  (check)
3. The next stage of course is crisis, which may take only up to 6 weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis.  You can see it in Central America now; and after crisis, with the violent change of power structure and economy, you have the period of so called "normalization" [which] it may last indefinitely.  Normalization is a cynical expression, borrower from Soviet Propaganda.   When the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968, comrade Brezhnev said "Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized".  This is what will happen in [the] United States if you allow all the shmucks to bring the country to crisis. 

To promise people all kinds of goodies, and the paradise on Earth.  Uh to destabilize your economy to eliminate the principal of free market competition; and  to put a big brother government in Washington D.C
.; with benevolent dictators like [1984] Walter Mondale [2008 Obama] who will promise lots of things -  Never mind whether the promises are fulfilled or not.  He [the dictator] will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of a new generation of Soviet Assassins.   Never mind [nothing to see here, move along],  he will create false illusions that the situation is under control.  
 
Situation is NOT under control.   Situation is disgustingly out of control. 

Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system train another generation of people who think they are living at the peacetime. False. United States is in a state of war; undeclared, total war against the basic principles and foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course - it's the system. However, ridiculous it may sound, [it is] the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not, I don't give a hoot. If you're not scared by now, nothing can scare you.  You don't have to be paranoid about it.  What actually happens now; that unlike myself, you have literally several years to live on unless United States wake up.  The time bomb is ticking.   With every second the disaster is coming closer.  Unlike myself, you will have nowhere to defect to, unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. 
 
This is it, this is the last country with freedom and possibility.
ED GRIFFIN:
Okay, so what do we do? What is your recommendation to the American people?
YURI BEZMENOV:
Well, the immediate thing that comes to mind is, of course, there must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of REAL patriotism, number one. Number two, to explain [to] them the real danger of socialist, communist, welfare state, Big Brother government. If people fail to grasp the impending danger; nothing ever will help the United States.  You may kiss goodbye your freedoms, including [sending] homosexuals to prison inmate.   All this freedom will vanish in 5 seconds - including your precious lives.

The moment at least part of [the] United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to FORCE their government, and I'm not talking about sending letters, signing petitions, and all this beautiful, noble activity, I'm talking about FORCING [the] United States government to stop aiding Communism....

The socialists have always had a problem with even thinking of unintended adverse consequences of their actions, never mind about analyzing them.
They need to take a look at Kepner-Tregoe decision training.

human nature is very tit for tat. The Left needs to understand that the actions they take now will likely be taken against them when they get back into power.

What the Republicans will do as tat for the Democrat tit doesn't matter to the Democrats. They have been too close to taking the kind of power that the Bolsheviks got a century ago. That is why they are so unhinged now. The next Democrat President will be Lenin and there will be no more democracy. That is why Trump and Pence have to be so successful that the Democrat Party loses its status as one of the two parties in the two party system.

The Democrats will not moderate or tone down because the society is wealthy enough that it supports hordes of people who do not have to produce economic goods to survive, even thrive. They spend their time having fun taking drugs and/or burning cars and smashing windows. It won't end until sufficient of them are dead in the street from National Guard bullets and sufficient more of them are in prison for long terms. It would also help if Soros et al were extradited or sent to prison. This is going to be a very dangerous four years. Too many powerful people inside and outside of government want Trump and probably Pence dead.

I’m sure the Republicans will save us. When Trump’s gone, we’re done. We have 8 years tops, but the GOP will be working hard with the Dems to make sure it’s only 4.

...It won't end until...

I know you're exactly correct. But I'm mystified at how many people don't see it yet.

As long as they’re establishment Republicans, that will make no substantial difference.
