Letter: Our Revolution

To the Editor:

On May 23, 2018, John Bachtell put forth the strategy that in order for the Democratic Party to win the 2020 presidential election, it would have to campaign for more charismatic and electable people such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He advocated for only openly socialist candidates.

Mr. Bachtell is the leader of the Communist Party USA, which uses a front group called Our Revolution, a totally Marxist cabal that claims a membership of more than 100,000 to accomplish this infestation of government.

This organization, Our Revolution, is also a front for the Freedom Road Socialist Organization and the Democratic Socialists of America. Most of the leadership of Our Revolution comes from the Democratic Socialists of America. Well, if you made it to this paragraph, I commend you because I know that describing this web of infiltrators is a bit complicated and boring.

However, the bottom line is the radical left now controls about 22% of the House of Representatives and 40% of the entire Democratic Caucus.

Believe it or not, these Marxist groups sprang from the late 1960s and have always sought to implement a broad range of reforms on issues such as homosexual rights, drug legalization, abortion rights and gender roles.

Only now they are advocating full-blown socialism: Medicare for all, paid family leave, free college, elimination of student debt, even health care for “undocumented” swimmers, etc.

Underlying all of these things is their goal to eliminate certain religions, the pledge of allegiance, prayer anywhere and most of the Bill of Rights. If the total thrust of these ideas ever fully takes hold, they will pervert America’s morals, sabotage the educational system, trash our social structure, destroy our spiritual life and severely weaken our economic power.
