FEAR: The Driving Force Behind the Democrat Party—Here’s Why and How!

“Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep. It starts when you’re always afraid. Step out of line, the men come and take you away.” —“For What It’s Worth,” Steven Stills, Buffalo Springfield, 1966

“Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone


In an article in The European Conservative titled “How the Militant Left Uses Fear” Christopher J. Farrell wrote,

The objective of the militant political Left—whether in Hungary, at the European Union (EU), or in the United States—is to keep the public in a state of perpetual, acute, neurotic anxiety. They employ this form of psychological conditioning as a means of control. In the last century, socialists—National Socialists but particularly Communists—specialized in the technique to impose totalitarian control over whole societies. [Emphasis added]

Farrell notes that this technique is not new and dates back many centuries including, “Lenin’s 1920 ‘Conditions for Admission to the Communist International’ discusses this technique as ‘demoralization’—the far-stronger German term is Zersetzung—meaning  break-up, decomposition, and disintegration.”

Farrell warns against, ‘universalist thinking’ demanding fetish compliance.”

Finally Farrell sums it up by stating,

The Left seeks to destroy and reshape national consciousness  so that life is reduced to an obsessive list of things that are either ‘forbidden’ or ‘mandatory’—and are enforced by either subsidized or punitive state control.

[ … ]

There are several other tactics and techniques the Left uses against the people to push them to abandon hope and faith. Once the people are broken through engineered crises,  then the Left pounces to implement the radical, ‘fundamental transformation’ that makes things ‘better.’ [Emphasis added]

QUESTION: How has the Democrat Party, over time, created a “forbidden or mandatory” obsessive list that is then enforced by the state?

ANSWER: Bullying, labeling, name calling thereby creating a list of ideas that are either forbidden or made mandatory!

The Democrat Party founded by Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of Independence, has turned into the party of career politician Joseph Robinette Biden Jr, who is implementing mandates, pogroms and policies that are exact opposite of what the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights stand for.

The United States Declaration of Independence begins with these profound words,

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The Democrat Party does not believe in the consent of the governed, they believe in the consent of the leaders of their own party and nothing else. Disobey them and face the consequences.

Democrats have created states of perpetual, acute, neurotic anxiety, i.e. fear, of being called Islamophobic, fear of being labeled homophobic, called racist, fear of following the peaceful the tenants of Christianity and Judaism, fear of being pro-life, pro-American and finally hate of capitalists.

Democrats and Race Based Fear.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. unequivocally made this demeaning and racist statement:

“[I]f you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Democrats have instigated a race based cultural war that is designed to take total control of blacks in particular and other minorities in general in America. It started with race and their embrace of Critical Race Theory or CRT. We have published articles about CRT here, here, here and here.

Democrats, while they frequently use the labels racist and white supremacist against their political, cultural and social enemies, by doing so they instill fear in their followers leading to perpetual, acute and neurotic anxiety among the members of their party. This has lead to death and destruction without end from the 1964 Rochester Race Riots to the 2014 Ferguson Race Riots.

Two recent examples are calling conservative or Republican blacks, like Georgia candidate for the Senate Hershel Walker or Justice Clarence Thomas, uncle Toms or not really black.

Gabriel Andrade, a university professor originally from Venezuela, wrote in a FEE article titled “Why Do The Woke Hate Clarence Thomas So Much?“,

After the overturning of Roe v Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas has been a particular target of venomous attack from the woke mob. Why do they hate him so much? One might be forgiven for thinking that it is due to his staunch anti-abortion views. But that explanation does not work.

[ … ]

So, why the animus against Thomas? There can only be one explanation: race.

[ … ]

Any competent scholar of the history of racism would immediately recognise this as race essentialism. As Angelo Corlett explains in his book Race, Racism and Reparations, “proponents of race essentialism define human races by a set of genetic or cultural traits shared by all members of a ‘racial’ group.”

By playing the race card Democrats instill fear into blacks who are members of their party to the point that some blacks are even willing to riot, burn and even murder on behalf of and in the name of the Democrats. The rise of Black Lives Matter is by design, not by happenstance.

What is so insidious is that when blacks riot, burn, destroy and murder in the name of “stopping racism” or the death of convicted felons at the hands of law enforcement, like George Floyd, they are in fact being racists, but are not labeled as such by the Democrats, their party or the media.

If you don’t obey then you won’t get food stamps or roads built in your community as these programs are now “race based.” It’s all part of the diversity, inclusion and equity mantra of the Dems.

Barry Goldwater, who in 1964 said this in his acceptance speech for the nomination of Republican presidential candidate:

Security from domestic violence, no less than from foreign aggression, is the most elementary and fundamental purpose of any government, and a government that cannot fulfill that purpose is one that cannot long command the loyalty of its citizens. History shows us – demonstrates that nothing – nothing prepares the way for tyranny more than the failure of public officials to keep the streets from bullies and marauders.

Democrats do not want to end the race riots and domestic violence, rather they want them to continue—forever!

Why? Because since the Civil War Democrats hate it when their black slaves leave their plantations and fight for the other side.

Democrats and Islamic Fear

The Democrats have made it their mission to subvert, censor and coverup the actions of Islamists who wage jihad (war) against the infidels (non-Muslims).

This is why the Democrat Party embraces Islamic terrorist organizations (CAIR), terrorist nation states (Iran) and elect the followers of Islam (Keith Ellison, André Carson, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib) to public office.

Democrats would rather accept these proponents of the most dangerous individuals, e.g. the Taliban in Afghanistan) and destructive, e.g. members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. (IRGC), than be called Islamophobic.

This is why Biden and his administration, at the urging of the few Muslim members of their party, changed the rules on immigration to allow the members of Iran’s IRGC to migrate to America or know terrorists to freely come across our Southern border.

Adam Kredo in a June 29th, 2022 Washington Free Beacon article titled “The Biden Admin Just Made It Easier for Terrorists To Enter the United States” wrote,

The Biden administration altered federal law to make it easier for individuals who have worked with designated terrorist groups to legally enter the United States.

The State and Homeland Security Departments last week amended federal immigration laws to allow foreigners who provided “insignificant material support” to designated terror groups to receive “immigration benefits or other status,” according to the policy published in the Federal Register but not formally announced by the administration. Examples of individuals who would fall into the new category, according to the announcement, include individuals who provided “humanitarian assistance” or “routine commercial transactions” to terror groups.

[ … ]

Gabriel Noronha, a State Department special adviser for Iran during the Trump administration, said that “the Biden administration is claiming this regulation is all about Afghanistan, but they didn’t even mention Afghanistan once in their action, and have made no serious attempt to limit the scope to the situation there.”

“Instead,” said Noronha, who is a fellow with the Jewish Institute for National Security of America think tank, “this looks like a massive watering down of our immigration restrictions against members of terrorist organizations.

Democrats were Islamophobic on 9/11 but now they’re efforts to embrace Islamists and jihad against us infidels is a clear and present danger to the United States of America and its citizens.

Democrats and Fear Of Not Being Able to Murder The Unborn

As we have seen race riots we also are witnessing riots against the overturn of Roe v. Wade by groups like Ruth Sent Us and Jane’s Revenge.

Influence Watch reports,

Jane’s Revenge is a far-left extremist group which claimed responsibility for an attack against an anti-abortion group’s office in Madison, Wisconsin, in May 2022 after leaks revealed that the U.S. Supreme Court was considering overturning the Roe v. Wade decision that found a constitutional right to abortion. The group’s name is a reference to the “Jane Collective,” an underground organization in Chicago that helped women obtain abortions prior to the decision. [1]

Jane’s Revenge claims membership throughout the United States and a willingness to commit future attacks, though neither the organization’s size nor existence has been independently verified. [2]

Democrat leaders have fanned the flames which have lead to the radical pro-abortionist rioters. Since these protests and riots began we saw leftists condoning violence and hysteria over Roe, while Biden’s DHS, DOJ, FBI do nothing.

Nancy Pelosi said that Alito’s Roe opinion poses ‘severe danger’ to Constitution. Pelosi went on to fear monger stating,

We’re talking about your life, the life of women in our country, and how we have again, a calibration of all of this in Roe v. Wade and how we must have it be enshrined as the law of the land. They will make charges about it, and we have to stay very clear and very focused about what it is and what it means in people’s lives. This is a severe danger to women. It is a severe danger to the Constitution of the United States. It’s a severe danger to other rights of privacy that are in the Constitution, but again, it’s the here and now. The here and now and the focus that we must have.”

Remember what Farrell wrote,

The Left seeks to destroy and reshape national consciousness  so that life is reduced to an obsessive list of things that are either ‘forbidden’ or ‘mandatory’—and are enforced by either subsidized or punitive state control.

Dems have reshaped the national consciousness to make the murder of the unborn the new normal. They’re now working to punish those who embrace life and Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren even suggested putting abortion clinics on federal land, which is illegal due to the Hyde Amendment.

Abortion is the best example of universalist thinking demanding fetish compliance.

Just days after the Roe reversal, abortion is now banned in one quarter of America. Dems look at this as an existential threat to their militant political leftist constituency.

Democrats and Fear of Capitalists

Tax the rich has been the mantra of socialists, Marxists, Leninists, Communists and now the Democrat Party. Taxing the rich began under Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt with passage of the Revenue Act on August 30th, 1935, 49 Stat. 1014 raised federal income tax on higher income levels, by introducing the “Wealth Tax”. The Revenue Act raised federal income tax on higher income levels, by introducing the “Wealth Tax“. It was a progressive tax that took up to 75 percent of the highest incomes.

The Democrats controlled the 74th United States Congress from January 3, 1935, to January 3, 1937, which separately also passed new taxes that were regressive, especially the Social Security tax.

From FDR to JRB we are seeing the same tax the rich myth being played out. In September of 2021 Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended wearing a “Tax the Rich” dress at $30,000 per ticket Met Gala.

The Federal income tax is the root of all evil. The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) wrote,

February 25 is a momentous day in American history. It is the day in 1913 the 16th Amendment, authorizing a federal income tax, took effect with the certification of Secretary of State Philander C. Knox.

Because of the crucial effects the income tax has had on America, one would hope that there would be some serious discussion of it in the media. But that hope is routinely disappointed.

But serious consideration of the effects of the income tax has occurred. For example, in his 1954 book, The Income Tax: Root of All Evil, Frank Chodorov showed how the abrogation of citizens’ property rights by the income tax leads to the expansion of government far beyond reason and corrupts Americans and America’s experiment in liberty in the process. And because Chodorov’s analysis brings us back to first principles, it is worth remembering his understanding of the Constitutional revolution it caused.

“A government is as strong as its income. Contrariwise, the independence of the people is in direct proportion to the amount of their wealth they can enjoy. We cannot restore traditional American freedom unless we limit the government’s power to tax.”

“Trace this wholesale infringement of our rights to the power acquired by the federal government in 1913 to tax our incomes—the Sixteenth Amendment…where the doctrine of natural rights has been all but abrogated in fact, if not in theory.”

“Getting something-for-nothing from government… this trade is often made, and… government is able to enter into it because of its income-tax revenues.”

Taxation without representation was the reason for the American Revolution. This is happening again, and again, and again when Democrats, assisted by some republicans, continue to tax and spend without end.

Democrats and Fear of Truth & Science

Democrats fear three categories of truth,

  1. God’s truth.
  2. The truth, i.e. facts.
  3. and Scientific truth.

John 14:5-7 NIV version reads,

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Democrats are secularists. They may have a “C” for Catholic behind their names, like Pelosi and Biden, or a “J” for Jewish behind their names, like Chuck Schumer, but they don’t live, practice and follow the word of God and His Son Jesus Christ.

One glaring example is in a liberal’s views on population growth. For example, Bill Gates believes and promotes the idea that we are seeing a massive growth in global population that threatens our planet and mankind itself. In a 27-minute long TED talk video Bill Gates stated,

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent. But there, we see an increase of about 1.3.”

However, science tells us just the opposite.

Louis T. March in a June 2nd, 2022 column titled “Secularism: The Forgotten Factor in Falling Fertility” wrote,

What is secularism?

The term was coined c.1850 to denote a system which sought to order and interpret life on principles taken solely from this world, without recourse to belief in God and a future life. It is now used in a more general sense of the tendency to ignore, if not to deny, the principles of supernatural religion. — The Concise Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church

According to Merriam-Webster, secularism is indifference to or rejection or exclusion of religion and religious considerations.”

The US is today’s secularist imperium. Secularism is a major contributing factor, usually overlooked, for persistent below-replacement fertility worldwide.

It is no secret that, on average, religious folks have more children than the non-religious. Why? Quite often, people of faith seriously follow the Biblical injunction to go forth and multiply. They believe in salvation and are usually somewhat less egocentric and materialistic than the average modern Joe.

But today we are in the age of Economic Man, defined by Merriam-Webster as

… an imaginary individual created in classical economics and conceived of as behaving rationally, regularly, and predictably in his economic activities with motives that are egoistic, acquisitive, and short-term in outlook.

March concludes with this,

Today politicians rarely invoke religious faith except in throwaway lines for public consumption. People made of sterner stuff like James McHenry and George Washington are vilified and cancelled, their names expunged and statues removed. What will tomorrow’s children know of their heritage?

Yes, we’re oh-so-modern, high tech, sophisticated and secular. Having children is uncool. Modernity is slowly but surely killing us. The idea of progress that venerates Mammon, radical environmentalism, egocentrism and wokeism has Homo sapiens on the path to extinction. But as the old saying goes, “Fish are the last to notice the water.”

Democrats have made the traditional family of the marriage of one woman and one man and their biological children a threat to their new world order. Being straight and wanting a family is anti-feminist and a threat to government power and control. Having a family is the bedrock of any culture.

According to the World Atlas, “American women reaching child-bearing age in 1800 had on average of seven to eight live births in the course of their reproductive life.” In 1800, America was mostly rural and practicing Christian.

As March points out,

Also, having children was sound economics. Children meant more hands on deck at the farm and family business. That was early American family planning.

From 1800, however, US fertility steadily declined, bottoming out in the 1940s. Then the postwar “baby boom” brought a 60% bump. The decline has since resumed, attributed to better public health (lower infant mortality), urbanisation, industrialisation, higher incomes and women in the workforce.

However, one tremendously significant reason for fewer children is usually omitted from demographic analyses: secularism.

Wokeism is secular, anti-procreation, pro-abortion, anti-God, pro-do what feels good and do it often, with the exception of having a traditional family with children.

Go Woke, Go Extinct.

“The only thing to fear is fear itself!” FDR.

Elvis Presley said, “All I want is to know the truth, to know and experience God. I’m a searcher, that’s what I’m all about.

Fear is a roadblock to the truth.

We to are searchers for the truth, that’s what we’re all about.
