Over at Conservative Hideout Personally, I went with Soledad O’Brien
It’s that time folks! We have a mission here at the CH2.0. We have to nominate useful idiots for this month’s poll. For those new to this, useful idiots are people that, unwittingly or not, support socialism/Marxism. Then, when Marxists actually come to power, and install a totalitarian state, the useful idiots are usually eliminated. After all, you can’t have idealism interfering with the totalitarianism, can you? It’s happened everywhere a Marxist state has been installed, but, according to the useful idiots, the survivors and witnesses are lying, so it’ll come a big surprise if it happens to them.
The process is simple, drop you candidates in the comment section. In two days, I’ll post the poll, and the world can vote for their favorite useful idiot.
A thought-provoking piece at Sword-at-the-Ready
The key tactic in every Marxist/Socialist revolution towards the establishment of totalitarian regimes and dictatorships, is to capitalize on or create economic misery and desperation among their constituencies in order to use them as a weapon against their political opposition. When the pain becomes prevalent and demagoguery has sufficiently painted the targets of blame they want their constituencies to attack – they will instigate violence and upheaval by proxy against those they want eliminated.
Mussolini had his Blackshirts, Hitler used his Brownshirts and Mao had his devoted Red Guard as the tools used to stoke street violence. They were devoted groups that incited larger mob actions that opportunists were all-too-happy to join in to inflict death and damage upon the targets these tools directed their rage. Bloodshed and violence then becomes the catalyst for enough of the populace to surrender what little liberty they have left for an iron-fisted political savior to brutally put down the chaos and restore “normalcy”.
This is the template that is taught and always followed by Marxists and the Fabian Socialists who are working tirelessly to ‘transform the world’ into their twisted utopian dream. This blueprint is never deviated from – only enhanced and modified to bring about more subtle approaches so as to deceive the masses of where the Left intends to take them. For example, they no longer have to wait for the perfect conditions to arise, for an opportune moment to establish totalitarian rule as in times past. Today, they can create the actual conditions that are causing the economic collapse that they will capitalize on.
Cause the problem. Spread the misery. Blame your targets for the misery. Incite chaos and violence. Brutally put down those they have blamed for the chaos, criminalize them, execute them. Establish absolute power from within. It’s that simple. It’s that devious. Satan is not too original, he sticks to what works.
Usually by the time the majority wake up to recognize what has been done to them, it is too late to stop the tyrants from achieving their goals upon the people they seek to destroy. Eventually the useful idiots themselves are dispatched in the same manner by the regime they put into power once total control has been accomplished.
