Defense of Communist Anarchists in Charlottesville Betrays Such Supporters as Destroyers of American Ideals
While Americans are a bit more familiar with the history of the inequities of the past in the United States, there is a great deal of confusion over, or lack of information regarding, the inequities instigated by those forefathers of such groups like the Marxists or Antifa. So while Antifa and Black Lives Matter groups want to tear down statues of slave owners, it would be wise to up the stakes rather than back off like good polite American citizens often do. The gloves should come off if violence and destruction is desired by either of these two general categories of organizations from the extreme right and extreme left. Let American citizens know that if we are willing to allow people to tear down statues, we are willing to allow people to tamper with the learning that is derived from the knowledge of history.
Antifa is a derivative and transplant from Europe’s past, much like the modern day KKK is a derivative from America’s past of the days of the old “Democratic” regimes whose heyday was in the period just after Andrew Jackson ushered in his new brand of politics in the U.S. and in the days the Party created the Confederate States of America. Antifa is short for the original Antifaschistiche Aktion (or other variants) that was organized to oppose fascism in all its forms. It is believed that the group was first organized in 1932 by the German Communist Party. In other words, a Communist Party front group linked to the aims or goals of the Communist Party.
The real problem at this point is a definitive understanding of the Communist Party or Communism, which derived from Marxism because the majority of innocent Americans are clueless when it comes to communism or Marxism. Who actually takes time to study it? And, the baby brother of communism is socialism and it is so cute and cuddly, how could it be viewed as harmful to the average citizen? Again, the real problem is that most folks do not care about what socialism is, or what communism is, and they certainly do not care enough to actually locate and study unbiased or objective information on such “isms” as it seems so boring to do so.
Socialism, on the surface, seems like a form of government that provides a “fair shake” for all people, yet there are inherent problems with providing a fair shake for everyone. A long time ago, venture capitalists tried to make a go of it in a foreign land far from their homes and they used the “fair shake” mentality to organize a colony that would hopefully make them rich. That experiment was called James Fort, which evolved into Jamestown, which evolved into Virginia—the home to the rioting in Charlottesville. The colonists used a form of socialism to create the concept of everyone sharing equally the profits of the economic endeavor.
The only problem was that many of the colonists starved to death because it was easy in such a system to not work because all were going to get a “fair shake” whether they put in any effort or they did nothing. The leader of the venture died and a military man took charge of the leadership of the colony. He also happened to write the history of that colony; his name was Captain John Smith. He saw things quite simply and changed the system of socialism to one that he thought could save the struggling colony. Smith made a serious ultimatum to the remaining colonists: “ If you don’t work—you don’t eat!” This is the British history of the first colony that became Virginia. Socialism has been tried again and again in history and although people keep trying there is that element of human laziness that enters into the equation of basic survival.
America has now come full circle in the 400 years since the days in which the British experimented with such ideas as they colonized the “New World.” Today in America only half of the American people pay taxes, and yet they have some say in the political moves or direction of the nation as it moves through time. Elected government officials have been flirting with socialism since the days of Woodrow Wilson, and after over 100 years of such flirtation, the nation has essentially come full circle to the place the nation originated. The temptation of socialism, the younger brother of communism, is very real. The socialists would prefer to have people believe that this story is not really what their belief system is all about. Yet, the truth is there within the pages of history for all to read.No more dramatic is this history demonstrated than in the two failed experiments in old Europe of “Nationalist Socialism” (what is more popularly known as the Nazi Party of Germany under Adolf Hitler) and the “Union of Soviet Socialist Republics” that became the Russian government established by the Communist Party upon the foundation of the previous Russian Provisional Government that was created by the revolution of the Bolsheviks under Vladimir Lenin in 1917. These two systems of government eventually developed a peace treaty in 1939 in which each government would gain an advantage by assisting each other. This treaty was known as the Molotov – Ribbentrop Pact and was ostensibly a non-aggression pact between the Nazis and the Soviet Socialists).
It was initiated on the doorstep of World War II, and gave both Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin relative confidence in their respective actions. Yet, both leaders were tyrants, and both leaders would be willing to do whatever it took to retain their power and sustain their power over their people and anyone else they chose to dominate under their absolute power. Stalin thought that he had outsmarted Hitler, but Hitler had actually outsmarted Stalin because his stormtroopers invaded the Soviet held positions in Poland on June 22, 1941 through the Nazi offensive known as Operation Barbaossa. In the end, Stalin had the ultimate revenge because he temporarily united with his avowed enemies in the West to defeat Hitler’s Nationalist Socialism in Germany.
What is not really understood by Americans who know little of European history is that the prelude to this drama was preceded by street fighting between young people in the two different grassroots organizations of the National Socialists of Hitler like the Brown Shirts and the Antifa-affiliated organizations that had been started as militant front groups of the Communist Party. A recent article by Jaacov Ben Moshe in a blog written as The Breath of the Beast reminds less knowledgeable Americans of this time in Europe long before events got out of control in Germany.
America is an incredible place in which the freedom of assembly and the freedom of speech enable people from whatever political persuasion or ideological belief system to exercise their first amendment rights. This is the beauty of America. Yet, when only one side of the story appears in the MSM, or is focused upon by clever politicians, the initial reaction of the American people should be clear: Why is only one side being told? It is quite obvious to most Americans that there is a great deal that the KKK or the White Supremacists have in common with the Nazis, but where is the concern about the Antifa or Marxist organizations in the media, or with the so-called freedom-loving politicians in the U.S. government? The silence is defeaning. Why is it that only volunteer citizen journalists are expressing concern over BOTH extremes?
Is it possible that those in leadership positions only seek cover when such controversial provocations erupt in the public square? Is it possible that the political journalists and the “analysts” of the MSM are already socialists at heart and not willing to be objective?
The seeds of tyranny were planted long ago by both the ancestors of those who claim to be KKK sympathizers and those who align themselves with Antifa. Today, it is truly the responsibility of the American citizens once again to keep the vigil by seeking the truth in order to preserve freedom. Today, easy targets are the statues of Confederates, but given the latitude to begin tearing things down in America, tomorrow it will be the vision of America that was left to citizens by the Founding Fathers.
