WHY will no one (outside of the few in forums like this) believe that communism is still a “thing,” instead of believing the Alinsky tactic of ridiculing anyone that even mentions the word, calling them stupid, decades out of touch with the “fact” that there hasn’t been a communist threat in decades if there even ever was one, etc., etc., etc.?

I have extensively studied communist doctrine and tactics, and thankfully had significant formal education on the subject as well. It is not dead, and has not been since the following core doctrine was published 169 years ago:

In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things. … The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution.

It’s not some whacko’s claim that they are directly tied to communist ideals as stated above – the media simply will not report the connection, and is doing all it can to make Trump look as awful as they can to the dumbed-down masses, so he can either be removed from office, or voted out in another three years. His statements on Charlottesville were spot on – there WERE two violent groups, and it was designed to be that way. But he didn’t feed the narrative that only the white supremacists were to be denounced. The media invented the concept of “moral equivalence,” so they could trap him and the rest of right-thinking Americans into a false argument, trying to force wasted energy on a defense of Trump – rather than simply reversing the question: “Where did YOU get the idea that he was drawing a moral equivalence between the two sides?” No one on the “right” with any clout will throw questions back at them. Alinsky’s book was absolutely brilliant. And they know how to use it skillfully now, after nearly 50 years. Yet the “right” (whatever that means anymore anyway – also part of the Alinsky strategy) simply doesn’t learn how to follow the lead of the left, and use the same “rules” they use in the fight. This is a street fight with hardened gangsters vs. high-school boxing club members, and the boxing club members want to keep fighting their own way – but expecting different results (the definition we’ve all heard of insanity).

We’re unlikely to get close enough to rip those masks off many of them, nor find out where they live and how they get their money. And the police have been neutered in the areas Antifa has chosen to concentrate so far. But hopefully they’ll get too cocky, and under-estimate the will of the folks they have NOT yet seen opposing them…. Just sayin….

Good find, Whirlibird – I hope all will look at the pictures at minimum (but read the articles, too!). There is zero question in these pictures that are worth thousands of words – these are the latest strain of hard core communism as some of us knew it a half century or more ago. It never died. It just knows how to LOOK like it did, while it gains more strength. It’s absolutely classic communist behavior. To be uninformed is to be far more than just vulnerable. A paragraph from the 2nd article is highly instructive – to those that will pay attention, and study:

Communists should not seek to stand apart from the masses! We should eat where they eat, live where they live, and wear what they wear. It is petit-bourgeois individualism that seeks separation. This is the shape the error takes. It is no wonder at all why the working class has so often lately ignored leftism.

That 2nd article should be deeply concerning to many, and frightening to the rest.
