Communist writer Jed Brandt thinks trouble is brewing in America and hopes to use this turmoil to overthrow the American system, Glenn Beck said on his TV program.
He played video of this dangerous kook urging the destruction of the United States:
We have to help bring this government down, we have to help destroy this system and that requires increasing the alienation that working class and oppressed people feel. The way change is going to happen in this country is through the destruction of what we call the United States of America.
I’m opposed to white supremacy not because it’s white people involved. I am opposed to the system we traditionally call imperialism and the idea that some people have rights and privileges that are not granted to all human beings. And the solution to that problem is called communism and socialism and we should put it in our mouths. We should say it when we say what is your politics? I am a socialist. I demand that we have health care for people and it’s not a demand that’s negotiable with health insurance companies.
We will take your insurance companies; we will take the farms in this country; we will shut down the military apparatus in this country and I am tired of being told to stuff my anger back in my pants.
Brandt bears more than a passing similarity to other hardcore, ends-justify-the-means leftists such as Joe Conason, Adam Serwer, and the Fake Journalist Max Blumenthal, if not in substance, at least in tone.
Beck didn’t play the latter part of the video which is just as scary as the clip he did play.
In it Brandt, with his machine gun-style delivery, seems to urge the creation of some kind of communist storm trooper outfit to attack the U.S. government and its supporters. He wants to burn America to the ground.
Broadly, broadly speaking, without a people’s army, the people have nothing. If we do not have our own –and by independent I mean antagonistic to the existing state apparatus and state of affairs — if we do not have our own force power is always its own gravity and we will always be trumped by them every single time.
FBI, are you watching this guy?
