Horowitz at Heritage Foundation: 'The Communist Party Is The Democratic Party'

On Tuesday, former Marxist-turned-conservative icon David Horowitz spoke at the Heritage Foundation to mark the launch of what will be a ten-volume compendium of his writings on leftism, The Black Book of the American Left. In his wide-ranging speech, Horowitz described his transition from left to right, and discussed the shortcomings of a conservative movement unwilling to deal with the ugly realities of what the American left represents.

Horowitz began by distinguishing the David Horowitz Freedom Center from other think tanks, instead characterizing it as a “battle tank.” He labeled himself “monomaniacal” in his focus on the left and its relation to communism. “There are hedgehogs and foxes. The foxes know many things. And the hedgehogs know one thing. I am a hedgehog,” he joked.

“My parents called themselves progressives,” Horowitz explained with regard to his communist parents. “The agenda was a Soviet America...the slogan of the communist party in those days was peace, jobs, democracy. Sound familiar?”

That was the theme of Horowitz’s speech as he continued: how the communists had taken over the Democratic Party. “The communist party is the Democratic Party,” Horowitz stated. “In The Great Gatsby, [F. Scott] Fitzgerald describes the rich as people who break things and leave them for others to clean up. That is a wonderful description of the left.” Horowitz, who began as a radical Marxist, said that the modern left had learned stealth from their failures in the 1960s: “The left have learned from the 1960s...we in the 1960s didn't want to pretend to be Jeffersonian democrats...That's why we failed in the 1960s. That's why they've succeeded now.”

But the right, Horowitz pointed out, has failed to acknowledge that reality.

WE NEED AN ARMY OF McCARTHIES.  OR MAYBE, BETTER YET AN ARMY OF GUNSLINGERS.

Vigilantes

Better yet - Militias.  More of them in every state!

And in every County, and every City.

Let's do it ASAP!

Focus major efforts and finances as follows:

1st Priority - Rural counties, towns and small cities (less than 100,000 population)

2nd Priority - Rural counties and urban suburbs (100,000 to 1,000,000 population)

Last Priority - Urban counties and cities (over 1,000,000 population)

I have known this for a long time. I think the real problem is that many JFK

democrats dont realize it. They dont see how the far left financed by Soros has

taken over what used to be a great party and now is a communist party.

They don't..all they see is JFK.....just like my aunt.....

We, are a freedom/liberty loving people, therefor, we should eject from our homeland, all of those who have stated from their own lips, that they want to own, and rule us.  I believe that includes Communists, and Muslims.  They have not hidden the truth from us.  They are diametrically opposed to our free way of life.  To allow them to work their nefarious will against us, is the same as taking  slow steady doses of poison, for our country.   Why sound minded reasonable people can't see that, is beyond me.  What we will have, if they continue, and are successful, is the same as being in prison, in our own country.  WE NEED A NEW SHERIFF, IN TOWN.

Same reason breitbart saw the light. Same reason I did. This is not your mother's democrat party.

So now what do we do?? I'm not writing to the communists and traitors. I'm not calling or faxing the communists and traitors. Voting doesn't help neither. A friend of mine just saw a candidate working as a poll worker in the same town that she was running in. My friend called the government and complained. What happens? She won anyways! So if you want to fight the enemy, take a VERY different approach. Stop fighting their fight. Just so you guys know, the GOP turned on the Tea Party and kissing the Communists asses.

Oh we know this....

The democrat-communists have picked up the progressive tag once again. They hate the word communist, because it alerts others of their true agenda. Progressive sounds good to most folks, so if you support a progressive(communist) you are supporting progress. However, if you support a communist(progressive) people would rally to tar and feather. Want to see all the communist in our Congress? Google progressive caucus, look at their member list, see they are all democrats, then spread the word to all you know. When you expose these no-goods, remember to call them what they truly are. COMMUNISTS and useful idiots.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
