The Democrats' French idea of "demos"
By Michael Moriarty
Demos – the Greek word for people. Cratic – the Greek appending syllable for leadership. Ergo, the Latin word for therefore, "a government of the people, by the people and for the people."
Sounds great, doesn't it? Why do we even need a Republican Party?
The key question for Congress on both sides of the aisle should be: "Do ad-hoc problems fall under federal or state jurisdiction?" Unfortunately, the economic goal of the Democratic Party necessitates complete federal control of everything. With the Democrats espousing an imperialistic economic machine (Socialism), those liberals are unqualified to stand as the single party in a dreamed-of One Party Democracy. The world, except for the United States, now endures the Social Democrats' benevolent dictatorship of a One-Party New World Order. Does that sound the least bit American? No, it's French! It's the World Gaucheoisie.
The flirtation of American liberals with radical elements was brilliantly exposed by Tom Wolfe in Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers. Basically, this classic of New Journalism reports on the "American Enlightenment" – the Ivy League mega-postgraduates spiritually clutching a copy of To the Finland Station by Edmund Wilson, getting their rocks off by hosting a cocktail party for American terrorists, like the Black Panthers. It is undeniably a French salon of Paris, circa 1793 – only it's New York City in 1968.
In the classic French portrait of the goddess Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix, there are two background figures – comrades: one white and one black. They could be William J. Clinton and Jesse Jackson or the Hollywood comrades Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman. These are Americans dissatisfied with the American reality of the People – as exemplified by New York City – and convinced that Miss Liberty, who carries her national standard in her right hand; in her left hand is the rifle with a bayonet more redolent of the guillotine and al Zarqawi's knives, than a weapon of freedom. The real Ho Chi Minh of France was Catholic. Her name was Joan. They called her La Pucelle. In the classic, early 20 th-century painting of her by Franck Craig, Jeanne d'Arc holds in her right hand a white banner with the face of Christ on it. In her left hand, she holds the symbol of her freedom – the reins of her horse.
However, the Delacroix painting of the Goddess Liberty is the Democratic Party's ultimate idea of the "People." It explains why former U.S. president Bill Clinton could sit down with Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat and help him get back all that real estate in Israel. Thank God Clinton's pal still wasn't satisfied, revealing himself to be a most undeserving Nobel Peace Prize winner when he launched the second Intifada. Clinton also wanted to give the store away to another terrorist – Gerry Adams of the Irish Republican Army.
The Peck's Bad Boy of the 20th century has been France, which lurks behind the nightmares of the First and Second World Wars, the Cold War and the "brushfire wars" in Vietnam, Algeria and the Ivory Coast. In 1919, French prime minister Georges Clemenceau engineered the Treaty of Versailles, which sanctioned the brutal humiliation of defeated Germany, killing any chance of democracy taking root in the Weimar Republic and driving the enraged German people into the arms of a tyrannical leader of German National Socialism – Adolph Hitler.
Clemenceau's France deftly sidestepped Wilson's League of Nations. France found firmer footing in Manhattan with her Napoleonic Trojan Horse – the United Nations Secretariat Building. It is the ultimate Arc de Triomphe commemorating France's infiltration into America, from where it can dictate the future of Humankind. France is even now Europe's main port of entry for an Islamic Gestapo. The Vichy-like Democratic Party has close ties to former French-occupied North African colonies. France answered American Cultural Imperialism – a force majeure, an unavoidable love affair between American freedom and the children of the entire world, with French Educational Imperialism flooding the faculties of almost the entire Ivy League and most of the American-funded universities, which have been "post-modern" faculties. This oxymoron "Post-Modern," in Gauchoisese, means post-Karl Marx. That makes America "Pre-Passé."
In the heart of La Pucelle was Christ. In the entrails of Ms. Liberty, standing in New York Harbor, is the soul of Maximilien Robespierre. Without him, there would have been no Napoleon, no Marx and Engels, no Russian National Socialism, German National Socialism or Chinese National Socialism. Beware the gift-bearing French.
Now the Democrats are preparing for their 2008 assault on America with the French idée of "the People" as a bloodied standard to bludgeon the Republicans with Rainbow Coalitions, affirmative action, euthanasia, pro-choice, fetal research, cloning and worldwide, wholesale abortion. A member of the leftist, Wiley Coyote Strategy Club will most likely be the Josef Goebbels behind the Clinton victory, James Carville, whose own wife calls him "serpenthead." This epithet Carville cheerfully owns up to, showing the only American trait he has left – a sense of humor about himself. That and a southern accent.
Poor U.S. president Woodrow Wilson gave up on Clemenceau in Paris back in 1919. Wilson watched his dreams of a peaceful Europe go up in smoke at the treaty signing in Versailles. With a Francophile Democratic Party in the Oval Office, Americans will find themselves pushed to the wall in the same way the Germans were after the First World War.
If that happens, American partisans will have to resort to tactics to save the country that will be as merciless and reprehensible as those used by the French Resistance and the Viet Cong. The American Rainbow Bourgeoisie Reality of the People will not be going down under the parading, "peace-keeping" boots of U.N. troops without a fight. The Democratic Party's dreams of running America are about as realistic as Syria's dreams of running Lebanon.
Strong suggestions that the U.N. relocate itself in Paris where the whole nightmare began on January 21 st, 1793, the date Louis XVI was beheaded, should be proclaimed and repeatedly echoed all the way into the 2008 election. Our indisputable American cultural imperialism – favored by children over five everywhere on Earth – is a laurel we can always rest on, while the savants of the European Union bite their knuckles.
The American Margaret Thatcher: CondoleezzaRice
If any Free World Democracy needs a Maggie Thatcher, it's America today. Condoleezza Rice is here, folks. Her appearance in Europe as our new Secretary of State was flawless. If Woodrow Wilson only had her by his side when he faced the radical chic elements of France, there would have been no Second World War.
A President Rice will most likely have to tell the UN what England's Iron Lady told Argentina's Napoleonic Army: "Go back where you came from!"
As for Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Governator of California, he is nothing more than a Democrat in Republican clothing.
So the 2008 election will amount to America facing its oldest enemy, France, at the election booth. What leftist ancien terribles, such as Norman Mailer, like to call the war between "old money" and nouveau bourgeois riche is really France versus America. To me, that's like Napoleon facing Waterloo. I'm looking forward to it.
Oh, by the way, Condoleezza Rice is also the symbolic, great, great, great grandchild of Sally Hemmings and Thomas Jefferson. She will also prove to be our La Pucelle.
