America’s Coming Cultural Revolution

Like the revolutions in Russia and China, leftists want to destroy our country.

This country is coming to a critical junction as it relates to the freedoms we enjoy — freedoms many nations around the globe have never known.

Ronald Reagan saw these problems years ago and said, “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”

After WWII, the communists took over China and began to transform the country into what Chairman Mao envisioned. The results were devastating as millions died. But it took a turn for the worse in 1966. In that summer, students launched their own “social justice” program. They began to overturn the entire structure of the Chinese people. Nothing was safe from their fight for “justice.”

The way to accomplish this was to eliminate what they perceived as the nation’s problems. Putting on their red arm bands, they proceeded to deconstruct the social fabric of the nation. The patriarchal system and the old ideas of their culture had to go. That included old customs, old habits, old culture, and old ideas. Everyone was on the bandwagon at the beginning, the media included. Christians were also on board … at first.

But then Chinese literature, paintings, buildings, and temples (think churches) were destroyed. Tombs of ancient leaders including Confucius were destroyed. Then they began destroying the homes of the wealthy, the educated, and anyone they considered “politically incorrect” (my term). Trials were held and those found guilty (everyone) were sentenced and many killed. It wasn’t long after this that the police were eliminated. The students formed their own police force called the RED GUARD.

The nation had already suffered over 40 million deaths under Mao’s “Great Leap Forward” (1947-1958). The Cultural Revolution resulted in another 30 million deaths. Once the killing frenzy began, there was no way to stop it. Christians who supported the movement in the beginning found themselves in the crosshairs of the Red Guard. Once power was given, it was impossible to take it back.

Does any of this sound familiar? Destroy the statues of the past, remove anything they find offensive, silence the voices of anyone who did not THINK the way they did. Wrong thinking (disagreeing) could cost you your life. If you were lucky you went to reeducation camps.

I know it’s hard to fathom this happening in the United States. But China is not the only example. The same bloodbath took place during the Bolshevik (Russian) Revolution and Pol Pot in his reign of terror in Cambodia and Vietnam (which was not nearly as bad as Cambodia). It happened in Cuba and it’s beginning in Venezuela. Have you wondered why cities run by the Left are releasing the looters and rioters without any bond or bail and no fine for the damage they did?

Let me reassure you that no matter how dark it looks, there are more of us than there are of them. The Cultural Revolution succeeded because Mao had taken all means of self-defense away from the people, as was done in ALL of the nations mentioned above!
