“We have to change, in a very fundamental way, the priorities of our nation.” – Bernie Sanders, October 25, 2019
Socialist Bernie Sanders has amped up his rhetoric against those with means, saying that money is their “religion” and compares them to “drug addicts” wanting “more, more, more!” and further claiming that people who earn what Sanders deems to be too much money “made a decision” to “go to war against the working families of this country”.
Drug Addicts? War? What kind of lunacy is this?
Bernie’s propaganda is reminiscent of that of the “great strategist of the class war” Vladimir Lenin, as discussed below.
Buried in a jaw-dropping “report” at CBS, Sanders chastises President Trump for being an “example” of “wealth-driven corruption”. “Most people do not want to step on other people as they advance to the top,” Sanders said. “We have a president who, when he was in the private sector, lied and cheated and stole in order to make his money.” The vitriolic statement was devoid of facts, but the “reporters” at CBS dutifully reported his rant. Sanders then set his sights on America’s “priorities,” saying:
“We have to change, in a very fundamental way, the priorities of our nation.”
Again, this very provocative comment goes unchallenged by CBS (or anyone else). The comment is reminiscent of former President Obama’s famous statement: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
CBS goes on to report that Bernie is focused on the so-called “wealth gap,” According to the article, “…the wealth gap between rich and poor Americans is the largest it’s been in 50 years. On the trail with Bernie Sanders, that disparity is discussed on nearly constant refrain.” (author emphasis)
The CBS “news” outlet joins Bernie Sanders in failing to mention that wages are increasing, unemployment is at record lows, and the most recent Jobs Report is nothing short of stunning.
But Marxists like Bernie Sanders are not interested in prosperity for all. They only want to take from those they deem to be “too wealthy.” As discussed in some detail below, this tactic is Lenin’s “class war.” Marxists need agitation and feed on resentment.
As Margaret Thatcher said: “[S]o long as the [wealth] gap is smaller, they’d rather have the poor poorer.”
On her last day in parliament, November 22 1990, Margaret Thatcher “was questioned on the widening gap between richest 10% and poorest 10% during her Prime Ministership.”
“All levels of income are better off than they were in 1979. But what the honorable member is saying is that he would rather the poor were poorer provided the rich were less rich.
Thatcher’s words could not be more relevant or accurate today. The CBS report continued to say that Sanders “…also has a plan to implement a wealth tax, which would, according to the campaign’s economists, in 15 years reduce the average billionaire’s wealth by 50%.”
Who will that help?
Where are the Republicans to counter this Marxist nonsense?
“Great Strategist of the Class War”
A little over a century ago, Marxist revolutionary and “great strategist of the class war” Vladimir Lenin wrote a letter to American Communists where he attempted to inspire his comrades to violently overthrow the U.S. government, inciting “Class War”, which would, in theory, ultimately result in Lenin’s “international socialist revolution”.
A master at inciting class war, Lenin scoffed at the idea of the “masses” having to accept the unacceptable fate of “class harmony” or co-existing [interdependence] with their wealthy “masters”.
Instead, he advocated violent revolution, sickeningly comparing his “proletarian” revolution to the American Revolution.
Steeling his comrades for the inevitable “mad resistance” of the “bourgeoisie,” against the socialist plan to overthrow them, Lenin reassured his comrades that “the proletariat will [ultimately] break down this resistance and in the course of its struggle against the bourgeoisie the proletariat will finally become ripe for victory and power.” In the meantime, he warned socialists must be prepared to “…accept even military defeat at the hands of imperialism in the interests of victory over the bourgeoisie,…”
Obama and the Occupy Movement
Former President Barack Obama, who just purchased a $15 million dollar mansion on the rising oceans of Martha’s Vineyard, really put class war back on the map with his “you didn’t build that” and “the rich must pay their fair share” rhetoric. Hypocritically, Obama also said only last year that “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.”
Obama’s message was boosted by the violent Occupy Movement of 2011/2012, which put the wealthy-bashing “One Percent” phrase on the map, a phrase happily adopted by Obama and his ilk. The left eagerly lapped up taxes imposed on people of means. The hard left Vox, for example, gushed that “President Obama has raised taxes on the richest 1 percent of Americans so much that they actually paid more in 2013 than they did in 1980…”
Eat The Rich
Class War is a Marxist strategy rooted in the false premise that some are hoarding a finite amount of money at the expense of the poor. Wealth is EARNED. It is a symbol of goods & services produced by someone’s efforts. You cannot eat money. NO, you do not have a right to it.
