The “Resistance” Democrats are a Terrorist Party

The Democrats have committed to overthrowing our government.


Daniel Greenfield


What does #Resistance really mean? It means the overthrow of our government.

In this century, Democrats rejected the outcomes of two presidential elections won by Republicans. After Bush won, they settled for accusing him of being a thief, an idiot, a liar, a draft dodger and a mass murderer. They fantasized about his assassination and there was talk of impeachment. But elected officials gritted their teeth and tried to get things done.

This time around it’s “radically” different.

The official position, from the Senate to the streets, is “Resistance.” Leftist media outlets are feeding the faithful a fantasy that President Trump will be brought down. There is fevered speculation about the 25th Amendment, a coup or impeachment due to whatever scandal has been manufactured last.

This fantasy is part clickbait. Leftist media outlets are feeding the worst impulses of their readers. But there is a bigger and more disturbing radical endgame.

The left can be roughly divided into moderates and radicals. The distinction doesn’t refer to outcome; both want very similar totalitarian societies with very little personal freedom and a great deal of government control. Instead it’s about the tactics that they use to get to that totalitarian system.

The “moderates” believe in working from within the system to transform the country into a leftist tyranny. The “radicals” believe that the system is so bad that it cannot even be employed for progressive ends. Instead it needs to be discredited and overthrown by radicalizing a revolutionary base.

Radicals radicalize moderates by discrediting the system they want to be a part of. Where moderates seek to impose a false consensus from within the system, radicals attack the system through violent protests and terrorism. Their goal is to set off a chain of confrontations that make it impossible to maintain civil society and polarize the backlash and chaos into consolidating the left for total war.


That is what “Resistance” actually means.

The radical left’s goal is to convince its natural base that our system of government is illegitimate. It knows that this can’t be limited to the theoretical level of ideology. Instead it must radicalize by demonstrating it. It does not seriously believe that President Trump will be removed from office by the 25th Amendment or any other aspect of the system. Instead it is feeding these fantasies so that when they fall through those on the left who believed in them will be further radicalized by their failure.

And Democrats have become complicit in the radical left’s program to bring down the government.

They have normalized the radical leftist position that our system is illegitimate. They have moved into the second phase of the left’s program of demonstrating that illegitimacy through confrontation. The final phase is to overthrow the system through actions ranging from protests to terrorism.

This is Cloward-Piven institutional sabotage on a whole other scale. The goal is to collapse our entire system of government. And the Democrats have climbed on board with it using President Trump as a pretext. But regardless of which Republican had won, the end result would have been the same.


The left makes its opposition to the Constitution, the election process and the rule of law into a crisis. And then it uses that crisis to demand a new system. It has pursued this approach successfully in local areas and in narrower causes. This is not the first time that it has embarked on such a project on the national level. But this is the first time that it has the full support of a major national political party.


And that is the true crisis that we face.

The left’s endgame is a totalitarian state. Its “moderates” pursue one by peaceful means only so long as they are allowed to hijack the system. When an election fails to go their way, the radicals brandish it as proof that the system has failed and that violent revolution is the only answer.

But what was once the obscure behavior of a deranged political fringe has become the mainstream politics of the Democrats. The Resistance theme shows that the radicals have won. The Democrats haven’t just fallen to the left. They have fallen to the radical left which believes in overthrowing our system of government through conflict and confrontation rather than covertly engineering change.

The Democrats have become a terrorist party. And their commitment to a radical revolution has plunged our political system into chaos. The left is now exactly where it wanted to be.


And a civil war has begun.

    Greenfield is right on the money. As is often the case, particularly on sites like TownHall, the comments are as interesting and informative as the article itself. These two comments by the same person are an excellent example:

    “It’s not that the Left refuses to recognize any other authority;
    The Left doesn’t believe there is any other authority.

    When the Left controls the Senate its bills are imperative and represent the will of the nation. When any other group controls the Senate its bills are meaningless and to be vetoed by the President. When the Left controls the Presidency he has a mandate from the People and his every post-it and letter carries the weight of law. When any other group controls the Presidency his orders are illegitimate and he is to be impeached as soon as possible. When the Left controls the Supreme Court its findings are the word of God and the end of any discussion. When any other group controls the Supreme Court…….?

    The Left recognizes no authority but its own.
    ………..

    The Left recognizes no authority but its own.

    Islamists recognize no authority but their own.

    That’s why the Left and Islam get along so well; They are kindred spirits. At some point they will butt heads but that will likely not occur until they are the only two groups left standing.”

    The left is evil, the left is sinister, the left has and always will be a challenge to good. And we will be consumed by their hatred. It’s a genetic flaw on humanity. The left will kill us because we are good; who doesn’t treat others with equal temperament. We know it’s coming and do nothing but rant over it. Our respect for life, our values and integrity​ are paramount as we are led into a lions den.
    We sheep dogs have not yet met the threshold to clean house.

    Put your money where your mouth id, end support for Facebook, Amazon, Starbucks, Target, Nordstrom, GE, and any other corporate entity that openly supports the left. No excuse!!! Take away their gold is a good start.

    The left is winning… History appears it will repeat.

      I planted seeds and woke many this past weekend. I also watched The Matrix again after 16 years and this time knew exactly what it was about. I also ended the support for those business a while back. I am understanding that 1776 never ended, never will. Always on the edge of a comfortable lifestyle or destruction. I feel for younger people that are awake and carry this burden, yet thankful I slept through most of it.
