The Democratic Socialists are socialists of the fascist persuasion. Some say that cannot be because socialists are those who believe all the means of production and all property should be owned by the government. I reject that argument. Prior to WWII, the fascists were commonly accepted to be socialists. They were nationalists, but there is no contradiction created by a nationalist socialism. They did not generally believe the government should own all property or all of the means of production. No, they were much more cunning than those Communists and the various off-shoots of Marxism. It is very, very difficult to promote Communism in a developed society where property ownership is widespread. It is much, much easier to promote fascism, a form of government which controls all of the means of production and all property, but leaves the pretense of ownership, along with many of its responsibilities, in the hands of the gullible or the crony allies of the government. Fascist governments generally do form a close alliance with big businesses. The most famous German form of fascism went by the name of the National Socialist German Workers Party. Of course they fought a bitter street war with their primary socialist competitors, the Communists. At the end of WWII, fascism had a generally awful reputation, so academic socialists rewrote the definition of socialism to exclude fascism. I see no reason to accept their definition of socialism. Total control of the means by which the People control, secure, and support their lives is socialism, whether the government takes such control by overtly owning all of the means of production and all property or not.
The Democratic Socialist Party of America has had a mix of fascist and Communist tendencies at least since the New Deal. Many of its elite adherents had loved Mussolini in the 1920s and up until he invaded Ethiopia in 1936. Many were Marxists and many praised the Soviet Union. Today, most of Democratic Socialist Elite have beliefs that are a mix of fascism without the nationalist elements and woke offshoots of Marxist beliefs. These Woke Fascists seek control of every aspect of our lives, but recognize that we Americans will not completely give up our property rights or our rights to choose aspects of how we earn a living. They are slightly pragmatic idealists, but only slightly pragmatic. As their stated ideal, they seek equal outcomes for everyone economically, even as they actually set up sweetheart deals with big businesses such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and others such as "green" energy companies, extreme environomentalists, abortionists, and labor union leaders who will sign on to their social programs to control the Deplorables.
The Deplorables are those who want to retain more freedom to choose their own values and to control their own lives than the Democratic Socialist Party Elite want to allow them. Many of the Deplorables have excessive allegiance to the concept of a limited government under the Constitution as well as to the ideals of The Declaration of Independence. They like being somewhat self-reliant and self-responsible. This cannot be allowed. The Swamp Creatures cannot prosper to extent of their dreams if this is tolerated.
So the Swamp Creatures launched attack after attack upon the President elected as the Deplorables rebelled against their modified fascist program of subjugation in the 2016 election. One false accusation after another was created out of whole cloth by the Swamp Creatures centered upon the Democratic Socialist Party leaders, but also including many Never Trumpers who found that they could not exercise their usual power lust within a Republican administration under Trump. There are plenty of fascists in the Republican Party also, though they are commonly rather less rabid in their quest for power. These fascist allies reframed Trump's tendency to exaggerate into a strong commitment to constant lying. They made up a claim that he was a stooge of Putin, then that he was wrong to seek to investigate the corrupt use of power by Biden and his family when Biden was Vice President, and now they claim he encouraged an insurrection to overthrown the "democratically elected" government.
The insurrection charge rests on the unauthorized mass entry of Americans into the Capitol building, property damage done there, violence against the police brought in late to deal with the intruders, and the fears of some Congress people and their staffs. This was a riot, but it was not one incited by Trump, though it did include some who voted for him, along with some Antifa and some idiots who just love being involved in anything that gives them an excuse for violence. Antifa is usually tolerated by the left, but it is essentially a nihilist group that has nothing to do with the followers of Trump and does not even like Biden. They are against everything, except chaos.
The Elitist Socialists and Swamp Creators spent the last four years dreaming up ways to wrest control of the country from the Deplorables who elected their nemesis, Trump, President. While claiming he was a liar, they repeatedly told the huge whopper that Trump was responsible for every death by Covid-19. They claimed he was destroying the planet with his refusal to accept their anti-science catastrophic man-made global warming failed hypothesis. They proclaimed him and all of his voters to be racists, even as Trump took great pride in the fact that so-called Blacks and Hispanics benefited far more from the booming economy under his administration prior to the onset of Covid-19 than they had under Obama/Biden and under Bush. They claimed he was anti-LGBT, despite his long working history with LGBT people, his opposition to the Obama-backed DOMA and DADT, his appointment of Ric Grenell to be Ambassador to Germany and then his Director of National Intelligence, and his worldwide program to end discrimination against LGBTs. In addition to their crazy attacks on him, they schemed up ways to run an unconstitutional election that would open up innumerable means to count illegitimate votes. The result was that the unconstitutional election changes did result in untold illegitimate votes and that very likely resulted in the declaration that Biden was the winner.
An unconstitutionally elected president whose party was also undeniably commited to vote fraud is on very shaky grounds. Much of the power of the presidency depends upon the freely given consent of the governed. A constitutional election is the means by which legitimate consent of the People is determined. The Deplorables did not give that consent. They may well have been in the majority. They most certainly do not believe that the election was a valid one and they are right. In the USA, an unconstitutional election is not a legitimate election.
The Democratic Socialist Party Elite and Swamp Creatures know that they came to victory and total power by chicanery. The Deplorables know this too. The Democratic Socialist Party Elite and the Swamp Creatures are very uneasy and feel very threatened. They used the Capitol intrusion as their Reichstag moment. They brought in 25,000 National Guard troops in their fear of the People. Then they grilled those troops, whom many had earlier called Storm Troopers back when leftist riots and violence were the norm in many cities they controlled, to find troops who were strong Trump supporters and remove them. They are afraid. Their fear is the cause of the rapidly developed effort to discriminate against the Deplorables in employment and in every social manner they can. They have stampeded. They forgot that they are supposed to turn the heat up slowly on the frog Deplorables so they will not jump out of the pot. Their mad and inept dash for power may well prove to be their undoing in the next election. They have been too overt in their power lust.
The Deplorables are in for a hard time. They had better become more familiar with the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitutional safeguards for their freedoms. They need to do a better job of defending their many and broad rights as individuals, if they want to maintain their ability to choose their own values and to manage their own lives. Those idiot Socialist Elitists and Swamp Creatures do not care about your lives. They think you are worthless people. They claim you are all racists, though their own claim is clearly racist. They claim every "white" person is privileged and a racist. Most of you know you are not racists. Most of you know you are worthy enough to choose your own values and to manage your own life. Most of you know that those power-lusting Woke-Fascist Elitists are utterly wrong in claiming they can improve your lives by dictating your actions from Washington. So do not let these Woke-Fascist fools get away with their evil power-grab. Make the effort to maintain your individuality and the integrity and efficacy of your own mind. There is no higher purpose in life.
Note: I use Deplorables the way the Patriots called themselves Yankee Doodle Dandies in response to the British effort to put them down with a drinking song calling them such during the American Revolution. Throw it at them. Throw it forcefully.
