A fifth column is a group of people or sympathizers who rationally and clandestinely try to undermine a larger group to which it is expected to be loyal. Members may engage in espionage or sabotage within defense lines or within national borders.

Historic examples

The expression dates from the Spanish Civil War in 1936 when the Francoist General Mola, whose forces were threatening Madrid, boasted that he had four columns approaching the city and a fifth column within it.

During the Second World War, when British citizens were anxious about supposed fifth-columnists in the UK, the artist William Heath-Robinson produced a series of cartoons about the Sixth Column, patriotic men and women devoted to frustrating the actions of the Fifth Column.[1] There was also a reference to existence of a Nazi or Hitler Fifth Column being in existence during WWII.[2][3]

Within the United States

In the United States, the Democratic Party has been considered America’s Communist Fifth Column, that is promoting Socialism and social radicalism. It emerged from deep within the U.S. government itself and has reached the point where, as reported in June 2017, even the mention of God and country are topics which trigger microaggressions. The Communist Party USA’s national chairman John Bachtell acknowledged that the Democratic Party is its greatest ally, and is bent on destroying America from within its own infrastructure. Accuracy in Media has reported that "Since 1988, the Communist Party USA has not run its own candidates for president and vice-president, preferring instead to work through the Democratic Party." In 2012, economist Peter Schiff, found that the majority of individuals within the Democratic National Convention’s delegation were enthusiastic supporters of outlawing profitability. As discussed in the cited article, the gravest threat to America's democracy is the Democratic Fifth Column.[4]

In November 2013, the Blaze exposed the origins of a "purposeful, brilliant plan hatched at Columbia University to destroy capitalism, American exceptionalism, Judeo-Christian values, and the American Dream." Allegedly, during the 1980's, Barack Obama and his classmates proudly called themselves socialists, communists, and Marxists. They hated the rich and despised business owners. They spoke about how the "white power structure" had to be dismantled, how business owners be bankrupted, and capitalism destroyed. Everything was allegedly based on "social justice." University students gleefully spoke about one day "taking the system down." The article claimed that America’s decline under then President Obama was not due to mistake, ignorance, or incompetence. The article stated that it was a purposeful plan that was hatched while Obama attended Columbia University.[5]

During 2018, the crisis at the Mexican-American border further exposed the intensions of the American Fifth Column. It was reported leftists on both sides of the border and illegal aliens seeking entry into America were collaborating for a purposeful attempt to overwhelm "our system and destroy our borders." Reportedly, the illegal foreigners are people who violate our laws and that the goal of the supporters is to overwhelm our system so we cannot enforce our immigration laws. The cited article claims the border is being controlled by cartels and that the pro-open borders groups are communists and socialists.[6]

In July 2019, President Trump called out "The Squad" of democratic congresswomen that have expressed hatred for America and American values. Mr. Trump suggested that these women leave the country, if they do not like it.[7] These congresswomen and many of the 2020 Democratic Presidential candidates have expressed desire to remake America into a socialist country.
