ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Imagine my complete and utter joy when I heard the most well-known conservative radio host in America use the correct word to describe the Democrats in the House: “Stalinist.”

We are witnessing in real time every day the creation of what socialist history knows as a “central committee.” This group was made infamous during the Great Terror of Stalin’s time, when some 1.5 million people were brutally murdered to pave the way for his vision of a socialist utopia.

In our own House of Representatives, we have Reps. Pelosi, Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib. In the Senate we have Sens. Booker, Harris and others trying every day to assemble a central committee that will dictate to the masses how we will live our day-to-day lives. America knows that all any of these good socialists have as a goal is power, much the same as Stalin himself.

More interesting than that is another phrase derived directly from Stalinist Russia: “first of the equal.” Publicly, Stalin told everyone the central committee was made up of people who were equal in every way, but that he was the “first of the equal.” In that capacity, he named himself secretary general.

It should be both interesting and amusing to watch as the Stalinists in Congress jockey for the position of “first of the equal,” better known as speaker of the House (or maybe Nancy Pelosi will change the title to secretary general). In the end, it doesn’t really matter; the results will be the same.
