Stefan Molyneux interviews Diane West, author of ‘The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy’, which investigates why a ring of senior Washington officials went rogue to derail the election and the presidency of Donald Trump.
She deadpans, “It’s dangerous to have your president removed unconstitutionally in a coup and we need to get to the bottom of who these people are and where their loyalties truly lie.”
Looking deep into the backgrounds of James Comey, John Brennan, Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele and members of the Fusion GPS team, West found that ALL had been hardcore Socialist and Communist activists in their youths.
While many of us have already heard that John Brennan voted for 1976 Communist Party USA presidential candidate, Gus Hall, we learn here that as recently as 2003, fired FBI director James Comey openly discussed having been a Communist, telling the New York Times how Reinhold Niebuhr, the militant Socialist leader had been a lifelong influence of his. In fact, “Reinhold Niebuhr” was Comey’s Twitter handle until he was outed a couple of years ago.
West says, “Having done the historical deep dives I’ve been doing, I always think back to, say 1947, when Alger Hiss was just a respected Washington figure who had been a very senior State Department official [and] the first Secretary-General of the United Nations. He was…exposed as having been working the whole time for a foreign hostile power, namely, the Soviet Union.
“Will we discover that one of these [anti-Trump] conspirators is working for a foreign power? Well, I won’t be surprised…Are they just homegrown Marxists and this is just a Marxist takeover? Or are there foreign actors?
“We know [the US Government is] beset. We’re infiltrated up to our eyeballs, for example by the Chinese. This is something that people are paying attention to a little bit now. Are they involved? Are the Russians involved?
“Because it looks so much like things we’ve seen and when you actually start tying some of the actors in my little threads, that go back through the decades, you see a continuity, with this long-term assault on our nation and it’s very frightening. But again, what’s more frightening to me, at this point is that they will not be fully explained to us.
Of these Deep Staters behind the failed coup to take down Trump, West says, “It was a network of people that were trying to create this Kabuki theater in order to manipulate the American people. It wasn’t about getting at the truth about Donald Trump or exposing a threat to the United States. It had nothing to do with that, it was all about creating a spectacle that would destroy this counter-revolutionary figure who’s trying to roll back this very Socialistic world we live in, where nation-states disappear.”
Due to Trump’s unexpected resilience, the coup plotters are currently “regrouping to protect from further exposure of the fact that so many people in this bureaucracy were involved in a criminal conspiracy to overthrow the government…[which is] why the ideological motivations I think are so important, when you see a consistent thread of Communism, Socialism, Progressivism, all of those Hard-Left, Marxist forms of thought in the actual conspirators, across the board – everyone I’ve been able to peel back is a consistent ideological champion of anti-Constitutional, anti-American politics and you know, that’s very scary because a lot of them are at the top of the Government.
“Our representatives need to know how important it is that we uncover everything we can uncover about this absolute black mark on our history, which is this terrible conspiracy and this rolling coup. I mean, if he’s still standing, that’s really a miracle, at this point…
“Understanding the crucial nature of what we are living through and how it is that a president who seeks to restore the necessities of nationhood has come under this kind of attack by those who wish to dissolve our nationhood. I mean, it’s that black and white, in terms of what we’ve been looking at, living through and trying to understand.
“I noticed Karl Rove, Mister Never Trump…just this week talking about, ‘It’s time to move on,’ you know, ‘The Mueller report is done and now let’s get back to governing the country.’
“No. This is governing the country. If we don’t rectify this, there is no Government of the People by the People for the People, ever again. It’s over…It’s that important.”
