“When we get ready to take the United States, we will not take it under the label of Communism; we will not take it under the label of socialism. These labels are unpleasant to the American people. They have been speared too much. We will take the USA under labels we have made very lovable; we will take it under liberalism, under progressivism, under democracy. But take it, we will.”
Alexander Trachtenberg (1885-1966), Communist American revolutionary, Madison Square Garden, 1944.
Until last week, I, sadly, had never heard of Alexander Trachtenberg, but had this pseudo-intellectual discovered him in the early seventies at Johnson State College along with Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsburg, Hunter S. Thompson, LSD, anti-Americanism, and shameless hedonism, he would have really dug him, man.
It is not without cause that Critical Race Theory is seducing young Americans today as it is marketed as progressivism by the Biden Administration, BLM, Antifa, and countless academics. “We must hate. Hatred is the basis of Communism,” stated Vladimir Lenin. “Children must be taught to hate their parents if they are not Communists.”
The official public relations arm of the Democratic Party, our main-stream American media, continues to remind us weekly of the Jan.6 Capital Riot as a sinister Trump-engineered product of white-conservatism while ignoring Antifah and BLM’s long, hot extended summer resulting in the death of forty-seven people, and, at the cost of billions of dollars in private, state, and federal property destruction.
The commercial convenience store accessibility of instant social mediums, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, and Snapshot caters to shiny, new, impressionable minds. Colleges, universities, and even high schools are being transformed from institutions of nonpartisan higher learning into far-left, social justice indoctrination camps.
According to their official web page, “National Action Civics Collaborative is a student-centered, project-based approach to civics education that develops the individual skills, knowledge, and dispositions necessary for 21-century democratic practice. Our democracy will be strengthened when all young people, especially those from underserved communities, have the skills and opportunities to participate meaningfully.” Sounds innocuous enough, right? Yet, this is not your or your parents’ civics curriculum.
A July 2, 2021, AMAC (American Mature American Citizens) article by Shelly Broderick uncovers the real intentions of this “social justice” movement: “The introduction of organizations like Action Civics is the beginning of recruitment efforts to pit children against their parents for not supporting ‘equity’ and ‘inclusion’ – in other words, the neo-racist policies designed for the institution of communism in the U.S. Here is a quote taken directly from their website; ‘Our adultist culture systemically expects children to be seen and not heard, which fails to recognize the value and expertise of young people.’”
Adultist culture? “Adultism” was coined by Patterson Du Bois in 1903. It first appeared in France’s literature of psychology in 1929 and has since been politicized by current American communist “activists.” Action Civics proudly lists its members, founders as well as a founding sponsor, the McCormick Share Foundation. Communism is out of the collective closet to stealthily cancel the Constitution and eventually overthrow private ownership.
“But democracy is by no means a limit one may not overstep; it is only one of the stages in the course of development from feudalism to capitalism, and from capitalism to Communism.” – Vladimir Lenin
Broderick goes on to state that devious organizations disguised as benevolent political action committees seek only to “demonize” patriotism. Their intent is to eventually “criminalize” loyalty to America. Of course, liberalism’s mob will only giggle maniacally in contempt, much as Kamala Harris does, at such charges.
“Advocates of ‘Action Civics’ are poised to press a novel practice on every state education system in the Union. Bills mandating Action Civics will soon be introduced in state legislatures across the country; it is already required in Massachusetts and Illinois. “Unfortunately, widespread adoption of Action Civics will definitely politicize an already politically tainted K-12 educational system, irrevocably cementing the partisan left’s hold upon our culture. Action civics amounts to school-sponsored indoctrination and political action in support of progressive policy positions. It must be opposed by all who value authentic liberal education.”
Biden Liberals want to ration our freedoms in the same way any totalitarian government would ration water in their arid political landscape.
“It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.” – Vladimir Lenin
