There’s never been a shortage of violent intent, ruthlessness, and will to power on the Left.
The first point is that the general attitude is that all of the Left is represented by the soy-boy weakness we see from the Left’s poster children. It is not.
Leftism is about power, not rule of law. What does that sound like? It sounds like a gang hierarchy. In truth, that describes the rise of most Leftist groups as they head for absolute power.
Need an example? Joseph Stalin was a bank robber. He was a kidnapper. He ran extortion and protection rackets. Undoubtedly he was a murderer before the Soviet Revolution ever began and he could update his rookie numbers into the big leagues.
Stalin was a thug. When the Revolution started, he assumed a military command position and rose to prominence because: he was ruthless and brutal.
Of course, the mincing idiots in the Alberta Young Communist League won’t be anything but grease between underneath the tank treads of the real Leftists. If they were all that we faced? The Revolution would be over as soon as the microwaves ran out of power to heat up the chicken tendies the Alberta Communist Party uses for food.
Communist revolutions since the French Revolution have had the effect of bringing not the brightest and the smartest and the most virtuous to power, but the most bloodthirsty. Stalin himself initiated purges to every possible threat to his authority for just this reason.
So, Large Marge is right on this point. The people that the Left will put against America won’t be the weak that they put forward. What they put forward will be determined by ruthlessness. Say what you want about Stalin, but he wasn’t dumb. And he wasn’t a nice cuddly grandpa – he left his own son to die in a POW camp during World War II rather than accept the offered trade for him.
As I said: the purple-haired weirdos the Left militants put out front as cannon fodder are no more than useful idiots, functioning as cover for the real thugs. It’s the thugs who nobody should be underestimating.
