The evil socialist mindset is on open display for all to see at present, especially in the State of Virginia. There was an insightful article on https://www.americanthinker.com by William L. Gensert for January 22nd. Mr. Gensert observed: “Democrats conspired with foreign agents, lied, cheated, and denied due process to Donald Trump. If they were willing to do that to a duly elected president in order to obtain power, what should Americans expect them to do to them should they refuse attempts to be disarmed? Democrats understand that an armed America can say ‘No!’ And they can’t have that. If they want to radically change the America extant for more than two centuries, they first need to disarm Americans. And they realize asking nicely is not going to accomplish this…Democrats will do their utmost to create a situation where blood is spilled and lives are lost to engender this war. They believe that only bloodshed will finally get the people on their side, willing to cede to them the control they need to ‘fundamentally transform the United States of America.'”
Anyone remember who said those last words noted above? It was none other than Barack Hussein Obama, right after he won the socialist (Democratic) nomination for president. I have contended that not only was Obama a radical socialist, but also a Marxist. In several articles I noted a book called Radical in Chief that outlined Obama’s long socialist career. I doubt if most folks paid any attention. They should have, for Obama”s “vision” for this country was identical to what socialists across the country are trying to push onto the American public. Virginia today is a notable example–forced gun control, laws against daring to criticize the ruling elite, and several other radical agendas.
Mr. Gensert’s article also states: “The solipsist left believes they are on the side of all that is good, just, and reasonable and if Americans must die for them to be in control, it is a small price to pay to attain the country they believe America should be.” Admitting my ignorance, I was not familiar with the term “solipsist” and so I looked it up in the dictionary. A loose rendition of it means that the solipsist thinks no one else but him knows anything and no one else’s opinion but his really matters. This is the perfect definition of the socialist mindset. The socialist may be wrong most of the time (and he is) but he is never in doubt as to the rightness of what he wants to see done, no matter how many lives might be lost in the doing of it. After all, if they are not socialist lives, then they are unimportant anyway.
Gensert, in his article, noted how Red Ralph in Virginia sought to demonize legitimate gun owners by painting them all as “illegitimate nuts.” He stated that “Members of his (Red Ralph’s) administration have threatened calling out the National Guard to seize guns from people whom they hoped would refuse to obey their new legislation.” And then he posits an ominous warning to the Democrats (socialists) when he says “Virginia Democrats don’t realize that making war on Americans who support the Second Amendment while trashing the Constitution will not get them the new civil war they think they can win. It will only precipitate a new revolution that will destroy them and their party for a generation…There will be bloodshed, but it won’t be on their terms. It won’t be a civil war, or even civil disobedience, it will be guerilla warfare. It will be revolution.” And if that is the case, how many of the socialist elites will be safe? Everybody knows who they are. Who is to say some of the newly minted revolutionaries won’t start going after them–because they will be noted as those who started all this misery to begin with.
Socialists can only succeed by using force because no sane person would voluntarily agree to live in the hell socialists will create if given half a chance. Sane people will resist, even if they do not fully grasp the idea that socialists are mentally unbalanced.
It might not hurt if people around the country start looking at whether the states they live in have democratic leadership and where that leadership seems to be trying to take them.
How many states have Democratic governors who may try to push their state legislatures in a leftist direction if they can? And how many of those states have Republican legislators that may be willing to “waffle” a bit if a Democratic governor exerts a little pressure on them? People in every state need to keep an eye on those they have voted into office, because, human nature being what it is (sinful) you just cannot sit naively back and think your legislators will automatically do the right thing. Some will, but many won’t.
And you had better believe that what is going on now in Virginia will be repeated in each and every state where the socialists (Democrats) gain control. Virginia is the socialist’s pilot program. If they get their way there it will only embolden then to push the same nightmare into as many other states as they can.
Socialism is an evil that must be exposed for the fraud it is and then it must be resisted. James 4:7 in the New Testament tells Christians to “Resist the devil.” And while socialism may not be the devil, it is one of the devil’s main programs. Therefore, it must be resisted.
