The insanity of permitting/inviting people known to believe in the abrogation of the US Constitution and the government upon which it is founded is now beyond doubt. The Democrats in Sacramento are either terminally stupid or no longer seek to hide the existential truth that they want to do away with America – or according to their preferred bullshit phrase, “fundamentally transform America”. Communism was and still is a socio-political ideology whose basic aim and organizing principle is to achieve a worldwide collectivist government that controls all resources, production, and consumption by a compliant population that altruistically benefits humanity through its class memberships, and most certainly not through individual enterprise exercised by a free people in a liberal society. (see also here and here, and Bob Crabb's version here)
Sacramento’s recent initiative to permit communists to hold public offices in California is just the latest corroboration of the progressivists’ hate for everything good that America has stood for and accomplished in its short history. Previously established evidence along the same lines includes their precipitous destruction/dilution of American culture by promoting the influx of unnumbered illegal aliens, their subsequent legitimization, and their contribution to our ‘multi-culturalism’ by ensconcing themselves in unassimilated conclaves.
The next destructive objective is already visible in our Left’s refusal to acknowledge the global threat of the perhaps not so radical Islamists. They have made this clear in their virulent opposition to any reliable means to vet the intentions and background of foreigners seeking to enter the country as immigrants or visa holders. And any notion of basing immigration policy on America’s interests – say, workforce needs and/or social costs – is simply anathema to a politically correct liberal.
Communist governments have filled the historical record as the deadliest of all scourges for their own citizens. Not counting war-related casualties, these collectivist tyrannies have slaughtered over two hundred million of their own. By any measure, the imposition of human misery continues overwhelmingly in countries under the control of collectivists of every flavor ranging from communists through the various thugocracies to fundamentalist Islam. And our Left is hellbent on driving America down one of these roads.
