We live in an age of rising democracies - or so we're told - but on close inspection, most democracies are fake. There are no free and fair elections; no rational political debates. The worst ones call themselves "the people's democratic republic of..." North Korea, Yemen, Congo, and so on. In most cases a military junta or powerful oligarchy dominates the people by fear of death or incarceration. When necessary the leaders bribe or force a mob to turn out for a demonstration in favor of the figurehead tyrant. Last year's Arab Spring toppled governments all over the Middle East, replacing old dictators with new ones who were better at controlling the mob.
Angry mobs routinely commit atrocities that individuals alone would never commit. Nothing good comes from mob action. Nobody and no thing is safe when mobs form. World history is rife with crimes of mob violence, witch burnings and persecutions of Jews, Christians, and other ethnic and religious minorities. The 20th Century was particularly bloody. It's ironic that mob holocausts worsened with the rise of science and technology, but the sad truth is civilization is a thin and delicate veneer covering hateful and murderous passions. Technology turns out to be an asset in the hands of mob manipulators. The Bolsheviks, Nazis, Shintoists, and Maoists all mastered the art of controlling and using mobs, killing over 100 million in the last century, and prospering for a time. But eventually their rotten foundations collapsed their empires.
Mobs are essentially demonic. As stated in the New Testament Gospel of Mark, Chapter 5, "Jesus and his disciples came to the other side of the lake, to the region of the Gerasenes. As soon as Jesus got out of the boat, a man possessed by an evil spirit came out of the tombs. This man lived among the tombs, and no one was ever strong enough to restrain him, even with a chain. He had been secured many times with leg irons and chains, but he broke the chains and smashed the leg irons. No one was tough enough to control him. Night and day in the tombs and the hills, he would howl and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from far away, he ran and knelt before him, shouting, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me!” He said this because Jesus had already commanded him, “Unclean spirit, come out of the man!”
Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
He responded, “Legion is my name, because we are many.” Jesus then drove the demonic forces out of the man.
There is a mind behind evil. Regardless of the name we use for it, that mind celebrates chaos and degradation; the corruption of human compassion and love. This is the path tyrants use to gain power, and Satan is pure power and tyranny. We're seeing raw tyranny growing everywhere, and it's happening to us in America right now. The daily news is filled with reports of mobs in the streets, the Occupy Wall Street crowd, the new Black Panthers, even self-described anarchists, provoked by grievances that have been made much worse by inept governments. The massive failures of socialist economies and corrupted legal systems are generally the cause, but sometimes it's a laughably trivial grievance; such as the perceived unavailability of birth control. The so-called 'progressive' Democrats are manufacturing a "Republican war on women" that appears to have failed to generate the expected riots. Thank God.
There is one party in America that has always specialized in using mobs. The Democratic Party, formed by Andrew Jackson in the 1820's, catered to the interests of poor farmers and newly-arrived immigrants who were easily manipulated to riot. Jackson was elected president in 1828, but the mobs at his inauguration did so much damage to Washington D.C. that even Jackson himself was shocked at the monster he created. Nevertheless, he persisted as its leader, serving two terms.
The Democrats were the pro-slavery party and they forced the nation into the Civil War. Lincoln ran against the Democrats in 1860 as the first presidential candidate of the newly-formed anti-slavery Republican Party. After the Civil War Democrats persisted as the racist, pro-segregation party. They succeeded in reversing Republican Teddy Roosevelt's anti-racist integration policies when Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, won the presidency in 1912. He re-segregated the armed forces and - among other atrocities - encouraged the Ku Klux Klan to demonstrate their power nationwide. Southern Democrats were outspoken in their racism until Lyndon Johnson came to power in 1964. He got Congress to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but created such a mess that by 1968 he had no hope of re-election, and quit the race.
Until the late 1960's, northern Democrats were relatively restrained in their use of mob violence. But at the Democratic Convention in Chicago, 1968, all the stops were pulled out and cities all over America burned. Americans rejected Democrats until 1976, when Jimmy Carter was elected president as a reaction to Richard Nixon and Watergate. Carter's massive failure assured the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980.
Democrat mob rule tactics are ascending now because president Obama - a self-designated "community organizer" - is a colossal failure, and he controls the levers of power and money. His only hope of avoiding disgrace is to acquire total dictatorial power. He and his minions sense that Americans are not paying attention, and almost all media has become a tool in their hands; propagandizing and covering up failure. The Democrats' tactics are spelled out by their hero Saul Alinsky in his book, Rules For Radicals.
Hillary Clinton wrote her Masters thesis - There is Only One Fight -
about Alinsky and his methods, which date back to 1946. This is Alinsky's dedication to Satan on the inside cover of Rules For Radicals:
"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer."
-- Saul Alinsky

Once again, the Democratic Party has thrown aside all scruples, and now they're playing to the mob daily. Obama and his minions are tailoring their every word to appeal to the darkest angels of our lower nature, attacking business people, the courts, Congress, the independently successful, and anyone else who disagrees with them. They're stirring racial hatred, envy, and strife, and manufacturing economic chaos by a blizzard of regulations. Their policies are interfering with every facet of our lives. They demonize all their opponents. It's their strategy for re-election because they've failed miserably in every arena of government, foreign and domestic.
The Demonic Realms are making their presence felt. We're in a war against evil.
It's important to remember that evil - the eternal flip side of good - can never be beaten. But it can buried in the Pit of Hell, as Scripture describes the process. For this we will have the aid of the Holy Angels.
