Sam Donaldson Thinks He Wants a Revolution

Sam Donaldson has been in Washington too longer. He’s been infected with the belief that his observations are holy writ. Prime evidence is his attack on the Tea Party. “The greatest slogan that I hated during this last campaign was ‘We want to take back our country.’ Guys, it's not your country anymore — it's our country and you're part of it, but that thinking is going to defeat Republicans nationally if they don't get rid of it.”

Where have we heard that message before? Donaldson’s rhetoric led to blood literally running in the streets when used by people who weren't straddled by moral constraints.

The French Revolution is still celebrated in France and is often compared to our War for Independence. The storming of the Bastille was a catalyst for what became known as the reign of terror. “French society underwent an epic transformation as feudal, aristocratic and religious privileges evaporated under a sustained assault from left-wing political groups and the masses on the streets.” How bad was it?

“Internally, popular sentiments radicalized the Revolution significantly, culminating in the rise of Maximilien Robespierre and the Jacobins and virtual dictatorship by the Committee of Public Safety during the Reign of Terror from 1793 until 1794 during which between 16,000 and 40,000 people were killed.

Did you get that? Between 16,000 and 40,000 French citizens were killed for a better France. Consider the following:

Ordered by the king [Louis XVI] to surrender, more than 600 Swiss guards were savagely murdered. The mobs ripped them to shreds and mutilated their corpses. “Women, lost to all sense of shame,” said one surviving witness, “were committing the most indecent mutilations on the dead bodies from which they tore pieces of flesh and carried them off in triumph.” Children played kickball with the guards’ heads. Every living thing in the Tuileries [royal palace in Paris] was butchered or thrown from the windows by the hooligans. Women were raped before being hacked to death.

The Jacobin club . . . demanded that the piles of rotting, defiled corpses surrounding the Tuileries be left to putrefy in the street for days afterward as a warning to the people of the power of the extreme left.

This bestial attack, it was later decreed, would be celebrated every year as “the festival of the unity and indivisibility of the republic.” It would be as if families across America delighted in the annual TV special “A Manson Family Christmas.”1

In time, the just cause of the revolutionary mobs got out of hand, and people began to notice. “During the Reign of Terror, extreme efforts of de-Christianization ensued, including the imprisonment and massacre of priests and destruction of churches and religious images throughout France. An effort was made to replace the Catholic Church altogether, with civic festivals replacing religious ones. The establishment of the Cult of Reason was the final step of radical de-Christianization.” It was at this point that the people became disillusioned with the revolutionary ways of the radicals, but not before more atrocities were committed for the salvation of the people and the nation. As revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Marat declared, “Let the blood of the traitors flow! That is the only way to save the country.”

Once the mob starts down the road of violence to justify the first “just cause,” there is no way to stop the radical remedy because there’s always one more thing that needs to be changed. They already had killed tens of thousands, what’s ten thousand more?

Mitt Romney’s not my first choice by any means, but he’s all we’ve got at the moment. We need a four-year reprieve from what will certainly be a radically changed America if Obama and his cronies get back in power. He won’t have to moderate an uneasy electorate since he can’t run again, although a called state of emergency could change that. All the stops will be pulled out.

Don’t say it can’t happen here. The people in France, Russia, Cuba, and Venezuela probably said the same thing.

    The one defining difference between the nations mentioned above, and the US, is the 2nd Amendment. It was put in place, so that every citizen could defend themselves and their families, against whatever form of tyranny or mod arises, with whatever means they choose - period. This is precisely why we cannot allow any gun control measures. "....the right to bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."

    • Patriot

      Apparently jerks like Donaldson fail to comprehend simple English.
      Who said Donaldson is an American? I sure didn't however I know what he is and it isn't American.

      • Metoo

        He is the sorries excuse for a texan I've ever seen.

        • Patriot

          He should be deported out of Texas post haste! :)

          Or south of Houston!

        • Sandra Lee Smith

          With our luck, some fool fisherman would pick him up out in the Gulf, or the crew heading out to an oil rig or some such!

      • CARLjr

        "jerks like Donaldson fail to comprehend simple English."

        Don't you mean Gary DeMar?
        The very first sentence of this article has a typo. He never bothers to even say who Sam Donaldson is. (I'm assuming he means the 80 year old reporter from ABC) I especially love this sentence: "Donaldson’s rhetoric led to blood literally running in the streets when used by people who weren’t straddled by moral constraints." When people used his exaggerated persuasive speech, blood LITERALLY ran in the streets? That is some powerful rhetoric!

        It also looks like it was a re-hash or a cut-and-paste slap together from an article written before the election. He forgot to edit out the part where "not-his-first-choice" Romney is our only hope for a four year reprieve. Are you still holding out hope Gary?

        • Patriot

          no CARLjr, I know exactly who I was speaking about?
          My comments in case you didn't notice were directed and about Donaldson, not the article. Perhaps I may comment on the article itself another time.

        • Sandra Lee Smith

          Might ought to take a peek at the history of France between 1789 and about 1794 or '95; BLOOD did literally "run in the streets", quite often! And it was not only the same sort of rhetoric, but the SAME puppet masters calling the shots!

        • CARLjr

          Unless the puppet masters are 250 years old, they are not the same.
          Sam Donaldson is only 80 years old, so his rhetoric was not used during the French revolution.

        • Sandra Lee Smith

          The specific individuals are not, but the group and their agenda IS the same and it goes back to 1540, AND so is the rhetoric; which Donaldson is spouting, but NOT the first to do so!

        • Wayne Graff

          Hey Carljr, please extract your head from your butt, breathing fresh air might make it easier for you to understand what the rest of us are talking about. Oh and if you don't know who Sam Donaldson is, please stay off line as you are proving you don't know which end is up.

    • RalphyBoy

      Funny thing I've noticed... many leftist that I know/work with seem even angrier than before the election. The message is clear to me... They have been emboldened to believe that we and our input doesn't matter... even in our own personal lives they believe that the left should have total control.

      This is what they will be working overtime to change... Remember how they pushed through Obama Care; they care not what WE think about their designs. We are all just background chatter to the Sams/Obamas/Pelosies of the country. The stage is almost set.

      Gird yer loins folks... the battle for Middle Earth is rapidly approaching.

      • Sandra Lee Smith

        I think it's already grinding to a start NOW!

      • The Truth

        They are angry because their messiah keeps making them and their poorly thought out policies look ridiculous. Obama is an embarrassment to all liberals and to America. Yes, they are a bit more emboldened and yes, Obama will push his agenda, irregardless of Congress or our Constitution, but the pendulum always swings back, and the harder it is pushed the harder it swings. Liberals know we despise their policies and lack of morals and they fear that when our time comes.

    • Nacho Daddy

      We are owned, the people that tell our government what to do are moving swiftly and watching reactions. Watch for a dip in metals in the springtime, you will know something big is on it's way.

    • Wayne Graff

      Oleinwi, I don't know if you have been paying any attention, but the vacationer in chief is working at getting that right removed. If we don't wake up and smell the crap that is brewing we will all be neck deep in this crap. So speak up people we need to support all efforts to maintain the Second Amendment, either that or it will be gone.

  • Friscolady

    He keeps talking like that he may very well get one.

    I hope that saner people than Sam Donaldson prevail and we get back to Constitutional rule before it is too late.

        The press is 99% Democrat, so that explains why they are complacent in this matter. They blindly support the ulta left-wing element of our government and will do anything to ensure the message continues in that direction. Obama can do no wrong in the press's eyes; he is their god.

  • glavender

    well, even if the house impeached Mr. Obama, what is the chance that a Harry Reid controlled congress would remove him from office, or has anyone forgot about William Jefferson Clinton, impeached by the House, cleared by the Senate

    America IS the Constitution! It is the most important thing in our country, More important than any president, senate, congress, or supreme court. It is the very "essence" of America. Anyone who attacks our constitution is attacking our country, be they foreign or domestic! Any and all government officals who seek to change it, defile it, ignore it or, destroy it, are truly enemies of every american who's future depends on these founding documents and laws! Defend our constitution to the death! From any and all enemies! That includes all of those who are either elected or appointed, military or civilian, man or woman, democrat or republican, black or white! That is where we should all make our stand!

    • Don39

      It makes me extremely sad to say that you are a few years to late! We have not been a Constitutional republic for several years, since it became a farce for those we elect to falsely swear an oath to protect the people and the republic, and especially since the powers of the federal government turned its back and allowed a thug fraud to be elected to the office of the presidency and since be reelected and violate the Constitution many times with total impunity. The Republican appointed CJ of the SCOTUS violated the last hope of the people to ,maintain any appearance of Constitutionality and I can only hope to see the day he pays the price.

      • NRApatriot

        I hate to say this because my ancestors have fought in all the wars this country has fought including the current war on terror. I have been studying biblical prophecy for nearly twenty years and 90 percent of all prophecy has come to pass exactly as it was foretold. Every i dotted and every t crossed! The remaining 10 percent is all last days prophecy and try as I might to find our country mentioned in it, it's just not there! Russia is, Germany is, all the countrys around Israel are but the U.S. isn't in there! The European Union is the revived Roman empire the bible speaks of and I believe is where the anti-christ will emerge from but no mention of us! I see this as a result of several possible scenarios but the one I'm most hopeful in is the hope that the American people will get enough of this userpers treasonous behavior and rise up in rebellion to all things communistic and ungodly and against our Constitution and take the country back to what the founders envisioned! When we do this the rest of the world will turn its back to us because it has never known what true freedom is and doesn't understand it or anything Godly but thats OK! We the people are certainly able to sustain ourselves and I am all in favor of isolationism and to hell with the rest of the world! Or there is the other possible scenarios which do not portend a bright future but I'm always the optimist! I asked God about why Obummer got elected the first time and when He answered me in thought a few days later He ask me if I didn't believe He must set the stage for last days prophecy to be fulfilled? He also reminded me His Word says "He gives the nations the leaders they deserve!" No matter what, God will take care of His own! Whom the Son made free is free indeed! I do not value my life over the cause of freedom! Let the bloodletting begin!

    Revolution, although a formidable situation, is all that the people addicted to handouts
    will understand. The labor unions festering into mobs such as the march on wall
    street will be the norm. Political one-upmanship will also be the norm. Politicians, in an effort to save their position, will promise the you-owe-me generations anything for their vote. Just as Obama did to will the vote in 2008 and 2012. Unless this hand out trend stops this country will end up like Greece, California, New York, Chicago, European Union and numerous other political cesspools. Broke and with any way out. People who don’t work don’t pay taxes, Even Sales taxes are returned to them by states and the IRS. Gog help the sane.

    oleinw'-You are correct if rule of law meant anything to Obama, Congress and judges, example a Florida judge forming his decission on a movie not the Constitution, Obama with a stoke of his pin bypassing congress and our politicans and judges have become subjects for the cartoons not as inforcers of the Constitution. Obama has already taken our fait to UN. Another subject for comic books. Have you noticed that the Constitution is never mentioned when dealing with our future, Obamacare being the most recent example.

  • The_American_Way

    There was a time that many reporters, including Same Donaldson reported the news. They did this without their opinion and beliefs interjected into the story. Those days are gone. The main stream media (Pravda West) reporters now spend as much time telling everyone what they think as they do on reporting the news.

    This is really sad when it comes to someone like Donaldson. He exposes himself as the "dumb as a stump" person he is. If he would have just read the story we would not have know what a moron he really is.

    • Don39

      By no stretch of the imagination is Donaldson a reporter! He is a scum leftist that does not even read the real news let alone report! At best he is a leftist propaganda scum , like the propagandist of the old USSR, and he and his ilk are even scorned in the rest of the world , to include today's Russia for what they have become.

    This administration with the help Of the Black Caucus in Congress and the national media have been pushing for an all-out civil war for four years now. Diaper Head Obama has been pushing for civil war to enable them to have an excuse to declare martial law and proclaim himself king for life. What these individuals don't realize is that if they push the American people far enough they will respond and there will be blood in the streets. As terrible as that sounds it may turn out to be a necessity.

    When a nation is terrified by their government and the government sets about to destroy the very foundation of their liberty and freedom some things but I have to give. The American people are still of the same stock that first made this country. They faced the government that persecuted them at all fronts. Tried to tax them out of existence and refused honest representation of the citizens. The end result was a revolutionary war.

    There's not a lot of difference between the King of England and the would-be king of America. Both were corrupt and both demanded total control of the people.

  • The Truth

    What a typical non-thinking liberal Donaldson is. It is the direct opposite of his lame assertion. The lack of Conservativism in the RINO party is what is killing it. The stupid liberals, and maybe the GOP, may not realize that almost 3 million Republicans (conservatives) sat this election out as Romney was a RINO and not conservative enough. That tells me that we could have won this election, despite voter fraud perpetrated by obama and his relect team had those conservatives voted. We are in need of the Tea Party and Conservative values and principals now more than ever and the liberals fear it.

    Read some true history.

    The French Revolution occurred because the church and wealthy owned 90% of the wealth and paid no taxes. The majority of citizens became tired of starving while the church and wealthy took everything of value with no concern for the people. That is why the French celebrate their revolution. It really did free most of the citizens from tyranny.

Let me give you a hint: IF you work in the (Obama Pravda ) News Media you might just be on the list during hunting season along with other left wing communist whack jobs. The last thing that I'd honestly wish for is a revolution in this country because it will tear this nation to pieces and many will die because of a few stupid communist men/women that thought they could " Hope " to " Change " this nation into something it will NEVER become.... COMMUNIST. No one wants to see their country ripped to bits, however if all else fails... anything is possible, even a civil war or revolution. May God help this nation and WE THE PEOPLE.
