The Democrats have several playbooks on which they rely. The Art of War is a brilliant book, by any standard. Its ancient principles are wise for any leader, commander, or warrior to follow. But when I think of the Democrat Party, I don’t think first of the rather sage advice of an ancient Asian Military Commander. Several other tomes come to mind, some Medieval classics, others contemporary political manifestos. Here’s a sampling of what, to me, are the most obvious and important “Democrat Playbooks”:
Machiavelli’s “The Prince” was Bill Clinton’s favorite — and if you remember his Presidency, he LIVED OUT the principles of “The Prince” magnificently — Oh, he was demonic and evil, but he was spectacular at it.
Hillary and particularly Barack Obama followed the teachings of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals.” Of all the books I’ve read by Marxists/Leftists, to me, this is the greatest. Again, it’s evil and demonic (it’s literally dedicated to “Lucifer” — the Devil), but its principles have time and again defeated superior arguments and morals of Conservatives with deception and tactical adeptness. (NOTE: Obama even taught a College Class on this one).
Then we’d have to mention “The Cloward/Piven Plan,” written by two 60’s Leftist Professors in 1966 in The Nation in an article entitled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty,” which explained how to overwhelm and eventually collapse the Capitalist Republic from within — Susan Rice’s favorite (remember, she’s one of Biden’s chief advisers) and Obama loved this one too. Incidentally, two of Obama’s Chicago Associates, Cass Sunstein, and Richard Thaler, built on this theme in a book written during the Obama Presidency, entitled Nudge.
And, some of Obama’s more wild and radical sponsors from his early days as a Marxist Communist Organizer in Chicago – specifically Weather Underground Alumni Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorne, wrote It Don’t Take a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind is Blowin.’ Along with the Prairie Manifesto, these formed a radical, militant – and yes, violent – revolutionary wing of the Leftist Movement in America which in the late 60s and early 70s joined with other militants like the Black Panthers. the Black Liberation Army, etc. to carry out bombings and other terrorist activities.
Things don’t change much. Now the ideological heirs of the movement have taken over our government, they run the DC Deep State, and they still ally themselves with radical, militant, violent neo-Marxist groups for a new generation — namely, Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, and Janes Revenge. They have become both the “thesis” and the “antithesis,” and this “New World Order” they’re trying to build (See: Klaus Schwab, George Soros, Bill Gates, WEF) is their ultimate “SYNTHESIS.”
You don’t have to “control” all the people if you control all the mechanisms by which those people must live. This is the greater agenda, the broader view. Most still don’t see it. Those who have, acknowledge it may already be too late.
