#Trotsky // The rightwing is radical while the liberal left is toothless.

Via email… (The rightwing is radical while the liberal left is toothless. Trotsky wrote about this scathingly in “Whither France”.)

Obama promised a fundamental transformation of our country. And you know what, it began with his own national party. A party that is now infested with saboteurs who don’t believe in capitalism, don’t believe in the Constitution, don’t believe in our freedom, and don’t believe in America as we know it. Obama may be gone, but their utopian dream, it marches on.

And President Trump’s election, while crucial, can’t turn away the wave of these new European style socialists bearing down upon us. I’m not just talking about Bernie Sanders. I mean, he’s near the end of his career. But how about Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Bill de Blasio, Andrew Como, Cory Booker, Christopher Murphy and Keith Ellison? They are not Democrats in the mold of John F. Kennedy or Tip O’Neill. They hide behind labels like Democrat, left wing and progressive to make their socialist agenda more palatable. And that is terrifying.

(APPLAUSE)

That should terrify every citizen who values the American ideal in this country of individual liberty. They politicize the Department of Justice. They weaponize the internal revenue service. The EPA. Perhaps cripple the FBI. And the Intelligence Community. And seized an embedded leadership in all of them to advance their agenda. Absolute control in every corner of our government is their ultimate dream. These intellectual leads, they think they’re smarter than we are. They think they’re smarter than the rest of us. And they think they’re better than we are. They truly believe it, and you know it.

The privileged and the powerful, they think they deserve to be in charge of every lever of power. But you know what, the United States Constitution makes it absolutely clear that they are not in charge. We, the people, are in charge of this country.

(APPLAUSE)

But Washington, oh, my gosh, this city, he likes to ignore that. Our Intelligence Community shrouds everything in secrecy, driving into darkness every dirty memo and every dirty institutional secret and memory in the name of national security. But when the leaks come, as so often occurs, in the light of day, it reveals nothing about the security of our country and it reveals everything about the corruption of those in power.
