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.

I am so thankful that Mr. Horowitz’s speech encapsulates the full truth we now are forced to live in. We need to denounce Hillary should she try to run. She will distance herself from Obama but she is only an extension of that same evil. Hillary has nothing new to bring to the table only more of Obama drek!

Many of us have known this for years. We've been labeled, "Birchers, right-wing nuts, red-baiters, McCarthyites, extremists, Nazis," and much more. We've been libeled, vilified, and intimidated, for pointing out the truth in the clear resemblances to the tactics of Hitler's NAZIs ("NAZI" is an acronymn for "national socialism)" and Stalin's Marxist Soviets; and the blindness of the "useful idiots" of their ignorantia. Now, the truth is clear, but too many are still wearing blinders, and won't look at all the evidence.

Melony is absolutely correct.

And this is a VERY important point.

Brelan-Favette is also correct.  As it turns out, recent research (not generally known to the public because of who holds the keys to that publication) is that McCarthy was generally correct.

McCarthy had lived through WWII and was old enough to see the beginning of the Communist movement in the US--about mid to late 1920's when Uncle Joe Stalin took over.  Old KGB records (and even older NKVD records) explain the thousands of agents Stalin sent all over the world (he put a bunch of "artists" on the trail to Hollywood--look at how many actors came from "Russia" between the 30's and 40's, it's a very long list).  Look how may of the "American" actors changed their Jewish-sounding names to "look" more normal.

Stalin though very far into the future; he put agents (or recruited them) from most of the major universities around the world (Oxford, Cambridge, Berkley, Harvard, Yale) indecently the CIA had an obvious prevalence for Yale grads for 30 or 40 years--it now looks like that was no accident.  And by the 1950's as McCarthy right surmised, these agents were in high government positions all over the world, especially the US and the UK.

And as you said, we need a cleaning out of all the Berry-ites all over the world but starting in the US would be a good place to begin.  Just not sure, short of actual blood-shed (it always seems to come down to that when we talk about real freedom and actual justice) how that would happen.  These people are so intrenched and they have had half a century or more of propaganda to point to labeling themselves as the good-guys, it may only take a very cruel set of measures to oust them and their Komrades.

Nevertheless it should be done.

McCarthy was 100% correct.  We need to finish what he started.

This process of state control of the economy has been going on before even the Federal Reserve Act and the Income Tax were signed by Woodrow Wilson a 100 years ago. A famous libertarian once said that if you want to get rid of Communists in government jobs get rid of the government jobs. Most Republicans in office continued or solemnized the process of socialization including Joe McCarthy, Eisenhower and Nixon. Unless someone who is running for office is going to cut the size of the state and not just the rate of growth, ignore them as Romney-like RINOs who do more harm them good. 

Pretty darn close to it

progressive=commie moderates= democrat  tea party= republican  3 parties right don't need a third already got it

Well...David..that is why we have the Tea Party now...because we DO recognize it for what it is...evil pure and simple....and doing our best to wake everyone up...even folks like my aunt  and her friend that fought in  WW II and was part of the bombing of Berlin.....they vote dem just because of the D..no other reason......trying to wake the liberal side of my family up the past 5 years has been a nightmare...

Hurrah. It's important that he says why he made the change and that May affect liberals.

Never any doubt.

I'm glad to see he finally smells the roses. I've seen this getting worse for a long, long time tot he point now what he says is true. They are now totally communist and parasitic.

Minnesota Press Raises Questions About Ilhan Omar's Former Marriage

Ilhan Omar won a historic victory in 206 over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.

The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.

Power Line reported:

A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website.

The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”

Ilhan Omar was elected to be a State Representative for District 60B November 8, 2016 and took her oath on the Quran.

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

In October 208 David Steinberg at PJ Media posted proof that Rep. Ilhan Omar did indeed marry her brother back in 2009.

Rep. Omar has stated that she did marry “British citizen” Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, though the allegation that he is her brother is “absurd and offensive.”

However, according to official student enrollment records archived by St. Paul Public Schools and the state of Minnesota, an “Ahmed N. Elmi” was enrolled as a senior in the Class of 2003 at Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN, from September 6, 2002, until June 10, 2003. He graduated and received a diploma.

And it gets worse…

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is under investigation for using her campaign funds when she was a state lawmaker to pay for her divorce.
