Your 2014 Democratic Party "leadership"

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Thanks to my friend and colleague Ed Driscoll for his plug today regarding my phrase, “a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.” As Ed notes, I first coined this handy explanation for everything Democratic over at National Review, in my alter-ego guise of “David Kahane,” in my world-famous parody essay, “I Still Hate You, Sarah Palin.” (Please join “Dave” on Facebook — look for the cover of Rules for Radical Conservatives — or follow him/me on Twitter @dkahanerules.) Some of is worth revisiting today:

I don’t know why I’m telling you this, but maybe now you’re beginning to understand the high-stakes game we’re playing here. This ain’t John McCain’s logrolling senatorial club any more. This is a deadly serious attempt to realize the vision of the 1960s and to fundamentally transform the United States of America. This is the fusion of Communist dogma, high ideals, gangster tactics, and a stunning amount of self-loathing. For the first time in history, the patrician class is deliberately selling its own country down the river just to prove a point: that, yes, we can! This country stinks and we won’t be happy until we’ve forced you to admit it.

In other words, stop thinking of the Democratic Party as merely a political party, because it’s much more than that. We’re not just the party of slavery, segregation, secularism, and sedition. Not just the party of Aaron Burr, Boss Tweed, Richard J. Croker, Bull Connor, Chris Dodd, Richard Daley, Bill Ayers, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and Emperor Barack Hussein Obama II. Not just the party of Kendall “Agent 202” Myers, the State Department official recruited as a Cuban spy along with his wife during the Carter administration. Rather, think of the Democratic Party as what it really is: a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.

So the news yesterday that the FBI has bagging crooked Democrats all across this great land of ours comes as exactly zero surprise to me.  After all, at the behest of my PJ Media colleague, friend and publisher, Roger Kimball, I wrote the book on the subject: The People v. the Democratic Party, which you can find on Amazon and at better bookstores everywhere. These people have been enemies of the state since Aaron Burr shot and killed Alexander Hamilton (Burr, who was basically the first Democrat vice president, also was one of the founders of Tammany Hall, the first and last word in Democrat municipal corruption). It’s time to start seeing them for what they really are.

"So the news yesterday that the FBI has bagging crooked Democrats all across this great land of ours comes as exactly zero surprise to me."

Isn't this just odd? Someone at DoJ is slipping, allowing all these investigations. They're supposed to be spiked like the one in Philadelphia, to avoid charges of racism.

My assumption in a case like this is that politician crossed someone in The Organization, so they get the knife. Not familiar with street gangs? Even company politcs of the more dysfunctional type?

One major problem with criminalizing a political party: if there is even a perception of a whiff of partisanship to it, one risks Caesar and the Rubicon.

I think the party has already criminalized itself, which is why its members are being marched away in handcuffs. Are we seriously to think these are all "rogue" parliamentarians?

As long as they're charged as individuals, and not as Democrats, the country has a fighting chance of decimating the overall organization. Keep their party affiliation out of the process, and bag them based on their individual transgressions. Even though this will mean hundreds of cases, it beats "persecuting" the whole Party. Also, be sure to throw in a fair number of Republican targets to make it look like an overall attack on political corruption. I would suggest a few establishment Republicans, who are likely to be "guilty" of some illegalities. all things considered.

Oh, hell no - the crimes are being committed, and by these individuals. The party itself may indeed be a criminal conspiracy, though I would quibble at the extent to which that term applies. The problem, as I said, is practical: how does one go about this in a way that avoids a Dem Caesar crossing the metaphorical Rubicon?

Sadly, perception in this case is the whole of the game.
