I’ve mentioned before that the talking heads of notoriety are now speaking out about communism in the United States. Recently another great example of this newer phenomena has appeared in the NRA’s Freedom magazine. Wayne LaPierre wrote an article sharing his view on our current collective of Democrat politicians. I applaud him for his candor with the interest of helping Americans understand what is really going on in our country.
The following is a reprint of his article.
What’s the difference between Democrats and Socialists?
March 2018 — America’s Freedom Magazine
It’s not a joke, nor is it a trick question. But it is a question even national Democratic Party leaders have a hard time answering. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, couldn’t answer it and, instead, said the more important difference was between Democrats and Republicans. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said it depended on how you define Democrats versus Socialists, and then he refused to define the two.
Even Hillary Clinton was stumped by the question, merely describing herself as a “progressive Democrat” and not a Socialist.
You would think these Democratic leaders would be able to answer the question. But they either can’t tell the difference, or they simply refuse to admit the hard truth.
There is no difference — not any longer.
The Democratic Party has become the party of Socialism and the growing emergence of hard, left-wing socialists ruling the party threatens everyone of us and every thread of our firearms freedom. It didn’t used to be this way. But over the last few years, those great Democratic leaders have disappeared and those kinds of Democrats have been choked out of the Party — replaced by the most liberal candidates they can find … who can be defined only as rabid Socialists.
These European-style Socialists believe in a complete redistribution of wealth and government control of major components of the U.S. economy, such as our health care system. From socialized medicine, to higher taxes on most Americans to pay for more government welfare programs, to government-paid college tuition and more.
Make no mistake. If the Socialists take power, all of our freedoms could be lost — especially our Second Amendment protected freedom to keep and bear arms.
History proves it. Every time, in every nation in which the scourge of Socialism rises to power, its citizens are repressed and their firearms are not just banned — they are taken.
Venezuela is the latest example, its resources stolen by the Socialist ruling class, while children starve on the streets and honest citizens are left defenseless in the wake of a national gun ban. Soviet Socialism, National Socialism, Maoist Communism — this evil, destructive, left-wing ideology is on the march right here in America … backed by all the George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer billions … and gleefully promoted by all the Huffington Post, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rachel Maddow, Salon bloggers and liberal activists posing as journalists. All preying on a new generation of young Americans walking out of the classrooms of Socialists who serve as professors of hatred of American capitalism and individual liberty.
The Socialists of academia have turned our college campuses into anti-constitutional enclaves where “free speech” is zoned off and free market capitalism written off.
Even our judiciary is threatened by Socialist judges who go so far as to ignore the law and legal precedent to fit their own agenda. The Ll.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has become the favorite of any Socialistic group looking for an opinion to advance its cause.
Make no mistake. These Socialists hate Donald Trump — especially as the president has nominated conservative judges at a record pace.
Perhaps the only thing they hate more than President Trump is the National Rifle Association of America.
Their plan is simple. Dump billions of dollars into the 2018 elections and take over the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. The money is in the bank, the national media is behind them, and the Socialist coup d’etat is just one election away.
If successful, they’ll threaten our country with two years of impeachment nonsense. They’ll roadblock everything the president tries to accomplish and, essentially, render his presidency ineffective … and replace him with a screaming Socialist in 2020.
And then they’ll come after us.
Our freedom and our nation face a dark, grave future.
But the Socialists haven’t won, yet.
We can and we must stand up, reject their socialistic agenda, and join together to defeat them. It starts now with everyone of us, and every freedom-loving American.
The men and women of the NRA have proven to be the only group of patriots with the will and the strength to beat back the wave of socialism that is spreading across the country.
We must not — not ever — allow our U.S. Capitol to be flooded by Socialism. We will rise. We will stand and fight. We will save and protect our freedom and our great America!
PLEASE — Take up the fight — NOW — before it is too late. We are very close to a world that we do not want to live in. It is not your children’s responsibility to turn this country around, but yours. Spread the word to those you have lunch with, work with, and associate with — everyone you know. Especially educate your children. They will more than likely have to continue this fight for their own self-survival. It isn’t easy, but you must be brave enough to confront this serious issue. If not, we may live unlike other countries who have fallen to consummate evil.
It only too 10% of Americans to win the first revolution in this country. We don’t want a second!
