In 1963 the Communists went on record as to how they were going to get control of the Democrat Party and its apparent they've succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. It's important we review their successful takeover, great victories are always worthy of study and praise. They succeeded because they got control of how Democrats think of themselves. Their state goal was to get control of the schools and media. With that, they gradually were able to turn enough of the Dem Party away from basic idea of what it means to be an American and turn them into a Party of useful idiots who still don't realize what's happened to them 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions. 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals Now, of course, this will be greeted by ridicule, because a key component to the successful takeover is that the host does not realize it was invaded and abducted. "we're smart!" dems will respond, "not like every one says, like Communists!" and of course they will think they are "Interdependent thinkers" (who always think the EXACT SAME THINGS) and are "intellectuals" (have you see Rdean posts?) The Democrat Party is in complete agreement that a centrally planned economy is the best way. This is in totally 100% disagreement with all evidence, but because they have been co-opted, they still do not see, cannot see how they are now economically to the left of genuine Communists who have rejected the failed redistribution model. it happened in my lifetime and I was powerless to stop it. So sad.
