Far Right Congressman Scott Perry Says Leftists "Gotta Be Quaking in Fear", Denounces "Globalization" During CPAC Interview

During an interview at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), far right Congressman Scott Perry spread conspiracy theories about a "Marxist" takeover of the United States, denounced "globalization", and issued threats to the left. 

A retired Pennsylvania Army National Guard Brigadier General, Perry was elected in November 2021 as chairman of the far right House Freedom Caucus. He is also a member of the Congressional Veterans Caucus and the Second Amendment Caucus. 

"Their [the Democrats'] goal is actually the globalization of the United States of America, destruction of our sovereignty and so this is all intentional ... This is all by design ... We're not only in a philosophical battle, but we're also in a spiritual battle for the soul of our country, and to save this Republic," Perry said.

He then ranted about a supposed takeover of the US by "Marxists":

"These leftists, these Marxists that have prevailed upon the American people and used the awesome power of the federal government to cower us into fear in our homes, they gotta be put on notice, they gotta be quaking in fear ..."

Perry also warned that he would use his own power to punish federal agencies if civil servants or Biden appointees refuse to show up at congressional hearings staged by Republican committees: 

"If they are not interested in showing up, we can say I‘m in charge now of the transportation committee of federal leases. Isn‘t that something?" he said. "I wonder whose leases might be coming up – we are taking a look at the list ... when they go from a big building to that small space on the square, that will be awesome, won‘t it?"

Congressman Ralph Norman of South Carolina, who was interviewed alongside Perry, quoted "General Kellogg" (probably Keith Kellogg) and said that Joint Chiefs of Staff chair Mark Milley is "a traitor" who "should have been fired long ago".

On October 30, 2020, and again on January 8, 2021, Milley called his Chinese counterpart to assure him that Trump would not start a war with China. 

Norman lied about the Biden administration, accusing it of undermining democracy, and he spread culture war talking points regarding children's education: "What's happened in the last two years ... is evil," he said. "It's an attack on our democracy, it's an attack on our children, and it's an attack - pure and simple - on freedom." 

In his closing remarks, he added: "our children are not safe ... what's happening to them in the education system is evil."

While Norman baselessly accused Biden of undermining democracy, he himself was engaged in an actual attempt to overthrow US democracy and install Trump as dictator.

On 17 January 2021, 11 days after the violent Capitol insurrection, Norman wrote a text message to Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows, urging him to advise the then-President to invoke martial law, only three days before Biden's inauguration: 

"Mark, in seeing what’s happening so quickly, and reading about the Dominion law suits attempting to stop any meaningful investigation we are at a point of no return in saving our Republic !! Our LAST HOPE is invoking Marshall Law!! PLEASE URGE TO PRESIDENT TO DO SO!!", Norman wrote.

On August 8, 2022, Norman issued a statement calling the FBI search at Trump's resort in Mar-a-Lago a "total abuse of political power" and "Deep State malfeasance."

United States Capitol (Photo by DAVID ILIFF. License: CC BY-SA 3.0) During the Cold War, the Soviet Union sought to undermine the United States and its allies through a variety of active measures aimed at influencing and manipulating public opinion. Although the Cold War - understood in the narrow sense of the confrontation between a capitalist and a communist economic system - has ended, the struggle between different political ideologies and ways of life has not. As the Soviet-style centrally planned economic system was abandoned by nearly every country, the ideological confrontation shifted. States like Russia and China have embraced a mixed market economy, yet they have retained an authoritarian political system.  While capitalism conquered the authoritarian states of the former communist bloc, authoritarianism appears to be creeping into the polity of the US-led "free world". The Republican Party in the United States, for instance, has turned to authoritarianism . Accord
