Communism Versus Freedom: The Strategy For Taking Over The Democratic Party

When Donald Trump, Jr. recently told Fox News that the 2020 election would be “about communism versus freedom,” he was not exaggerating.

The United States’ four major communist groups: Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) (and its close affiliate LeftRoots), and America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), are all working together in the innocuously named “Left Inside/Outside Project” to mobilize their 65,000-plus members to take over the Democratic Party.

Lest the word “socialist” in their names fool you, the first four groups support the People’s Republic of China, while DSA is allied to several European communist parties, including the former Stalinist East German ruling party now known as Die Linke.

The Marxist takeover of an existing mainstream politic party in a First World Western country should not be easy.

When the Trotskyist group “Militant Tendency” tried to infiltrate the British Labour Party in the 1970s and 1980s, the media and Labour moderates exposed the Marxists and they were expelled from the party. Unfortunately, in the United States today, the infiltration is on a much larger scale and neither the mainstream media nor the Democratic Party seems at all interested in exposing or countering it.

One Man’s Journey From Revolution to Redemption

When President Donald Trump canceled former President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran—and, more recently, ordered the U.S. State Department to add Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to the list of designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations—it was an ironic but redemptive moment for a Southern California psychotherapist and Buddhist teacher named Marv Treiger.

On June 11, 1964, the United States’ main ally against Soviet expansionism in the Middle East, the last Shah of Iran, addressed a graduation ceremony at the University of California–Los Angeles before receiving an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree. The Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, spoke of the need for social reforms in his country and the need to overcome “traditional” resistance. Like Turkey’s Kemal Ataturk before him, the Shah was attempting to modernize and partially secularize Iran in the face of opposition from both Islamic traditionalists and Soviet-backed communists.

The ceremony was marred by protests organized by the Iranian Students Association and an airplane flying overhead trailing an anti-Shah banner. The plane circled continuously, and the police were forced to deploy helicopters to force it down, but not before a “dogfight” ensued above the open-air ceremony.

For the pilot, the job was nonideological. He was paid in cash, and no one was ever held responsible for the stunt that made headlines across the nation.

Until now.

Meet NIAC, Iran’s Lobby in America

The Trump administration has been taking a long overdue hardline stance against Iranian terrorism and subversion. However, a shadowy Washington-based, pro-Iranian lobbying group is working under the radar with leftist Democrats to undermine the president’s policies.

The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) is working to elect sympathetic congressional candidates and seeking to influence presidential candidates to benefit the Iranian regime.

While NIAC maintains that it works independently of the Iranian government, many credible commentators beg to differ.

One of the most insidious communist propaganda outlets in the country is a website targeted at high school-aged girls: Teen Vogue.

While no longer a glossy magazine like its long-established adult counterpart Vogue, Teen Vogue reaches hundreds of thousands of young Americans weekly through its website. Among the beauty tips, celebrity gossip, and “provocative” feature articles, Teen Vogue’s readers can enjoy a steady stream of propaganda that would make openly communist online magazines—such as the Communist Party USA’s “People’s World” or the Party of Socialism and Liberation’s “Liberation”—blush.

According to a “brand overview” information sheet released by Teen Vogue’s parent company Conde Nast, teenaged girls who read the online magazine are “3x more likely to be an activist.”

The document (pdf), headlined “A New Generation Disrupting the Conversation,” continues: “Teen Vogue is the premiere destination for the young and unapologetic. … We aim to disrupt the conversation by educating, enlightening and empowering the next generation, in every step we take.”

A leader of America’s largest Marxist group recently praised Teen Vogue.

US Maoists Tour Venezuela, Walk Right Into Counter-Revolution

As Venezuela teeters on the brink of counter-revolution, an influential delegation of U.S. Maoists from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization–Fight Back! group (FRSO-FB) is in the country building solidarity with the communist leaders of the embattled regime.

FRSO-FB (not to be confused with the similarly named Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Organizacion Socialista del Camino para la Libertad) is a Midwest-based Maoist group that supports China, North Korea, Iran, Russia, Cuba, and Venezuela.

The four Americans arrived in the country on April 28 in time to celebrate May Day with their revolutionary hosts. They probably didn’t anticipate that on April 30, Venezuela’s U.S.-recognized interim President Juan Guaidó, an opponent of the country’s Marxist government, would take to the streets. Surrounded by anti-government armed troops, Guaidó issued a call for the “military to rise up and oust socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.”

DSA Marxists Target School Board Races in Wisconsin, Los Angeles

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

This country’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), is targeting your children.

Not content with the far-left bias endemic in most public education in America, the DSA is also attempting to take over the administrative and policymaking side of education.

The DSA already has a dedicated program to encourage members into teaching. The organization also has at least 2,000 college-level educators on its membership rolls, based on my estimates.

Now, the DSA is targeting school board races in major U.S. cities.

The DSA openly follows the theories of Antonio Gramsci, the ground-breaking Italian Communist Party theoretician. Gramsci believed that communism could be best achieved not by a working-class rebellion, but by changing the consciousness of the population to a socialist mindset through a steady infiltration of media, religion, and education.

Does Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Deserve Its Official ‘Terrorist’ Designation?

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

Only weeks after the U.S. State Department officially designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, a new, extremely militant commander has been appointed to lead the elite organization.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei demoted longtime Revolutionary Guards leader Maj. Gen. Mohammed Ali Jafari on April 21 and replaced him with his deputy Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami.

According to the Times of Israel:

“Salami has frequently vowed to destroy Israel and ‘break America.’ Iran was ‘planning to break America, Israel, and their partners and allies. Our ground forces should cleanse the planet from the filth of their existence,’ Salami said in February. The previous month, he vowed to wipe Israel off the ‘global political map,’ and to unleash an ‘inferno’ on the Jewish state.

“Any new war, he said, ‘will result in Israel’s defeat within three days, in a way that they will not find enough graves to bury their dead.’”

The California Democratic Party (CDP) is undergoing heavy infiltration by the United States’ largest Marxist group, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Working with the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and other socialist groups, the DSA looks likely to capture both the party chairmanship and a significant number of Central Committee seats at the upcoming CDP state convention held from May 31st to June 2nd, 2019, in San Francisco.

The DSA has exploded from around 6,000 members in 2016 to almost 60,000 dues-paying members today. A huge influx of new members—some already Democratic Party activists and officeholders—has empowered the DSA to infiltrate and often capture local Democratic Party branches in virtually every state.
